Scripture: Revelation 5:9,10, Psalm 149:7-9
Both Revelation 1 and Revelation 5 tell us that we are Kings and Priests. In Revelation 5:9-10 we are told, “And they sang a new song, saying: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.’” The Greek word for reign is bas-il-yooce. Bas-il-yooce is the noun that describes the position which we have been set in by Jesus. And ‘we shall reign’ is the verb – bas-il-yoo. We shall do what a King does on the earth. Kings judge and they make war. Will we? Will we walk in that place with Jesus in the days ahead? The choice is ours! Will we declare war on evil and release covenant judgment that the angels can execute? Walking with Jesus in the last days means declaring what God has already decreed as penalty for specific sin in Scripture. Our job is declaring it – an honor given to all God’s saints in Psalm 149:7-9. Romans 1 decrees the penalty for homosexual marriage. Our job is to declare the decree over any judge and every politician opposed to God!
