Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:1,2
We never took the time to look up the three Greek words that are translated “supplication,” “prayer” and “intercession” to see if they had a kingly, Judicial manifestation. Because when an individual is in governmental authority, we are to pray according to whether they choose a path for Christ or against Christ. If our leaders choose a path against Christ, then we are to pray judicially against them. If we do not pray judicially against them, then out of tradition we pray for them extending the life of the wicked and shortening the life of the righteous. I submit to you that is going on in nearly every church in America today. That is the depth of the tradition that we have. There is hardly any understanding about the distinctive difference between the Priestly Christ and the Judicial Christ. We have so emphasized the Priestly Christ for 50 years that it is assumed we pray for everyone in leadership. What we pray must be determined by whether the leader has accepted Christ or rejected Christ. But when that distinctive difference is omitted, through deception, we extend the life of the wicked and shorten the life of the righteous. And we end up losing all the freedom that previous generations bled and died for. How did we get to this position in our nation? Tradition brought us here and it is time that it changed.
