Scripture: Isaiah 9:6,7
Isaiah 9:6,7 says, “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” It is obvious from Isaiah that God’s Kingdom has to be established. Christ increases His government and peace continually with no end. He sits on the Throne of David and spiritually speaking, over the Throne of David to order and establish it with judgment and righteousness. If we do not learn to pray judgment prayers from a platform of righteousness, then we forfeit Kingdom authority to establish the covenant of God. The Kingdom of God is only established by judgment. If we cannot bring judgment, we cannot establish the Kingdom. And tradition has for decades taught the church we cannot judge. By taking Matthew 7:1 out of context, tradition has taken away a biblical, scriptural weapon that we are called to use. A major purpose of the way of the Lord is to do judgment and tradition has sidelined the church and made the Word of none effect. We have to overcome tradition to establish the Kingdom by praying judgment and do it now!
