When The Righteous Rule
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Definitions of an Ambassador:
Ambassador: an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country.
Definition Two: a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his or her own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment.
I have a book called “The Right Hand”. It explains ambassadorship. I won’t go too much into this, but as we can see, an Ambassador is one of the highest ranking officer called on assignment for any government. As the righteous in Christ, we are of the highest rank to do Kingdom business for our government (The Kingdom of God).
Luke 9:2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. (An example of Jesus SENDING. This shows how Jesus thought of His disciples as ambassadors).
Righteous in Authority
Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs 14:34 (amplified version) Uprightness and right standing with God (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) elevate a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Proverbs 29:2 (NIV) When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.
Proverbs 29:2 (Common English) When the righteous become numerous, the people rejoice, but when the wicked dominate, the people moan.
Definition of Righteousness: God’s Kingdom. His way of doing things. The believer is considered 100% righteous at the new birth and this means the believer is in right standing with God. We didn’t earn it. It is a free gift to those who believe. We have been made that way. It’s our identity in Christ.
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
We are the righteous people of God and we should be in leadership and have the influence. As the church, we must send ambassadors into every segment of society for the purpose of transforming the nation. The righteous must thrive, become numerous, takeover, dominate, and get in places of authority. Colonization of the Kingdom of God doesn't just happen through the preaching the Gospel. We must use other areas of gifting’s and influence to get the Gospel of the Kingdom out. God positions us in certain places, gives us certain callings, talents, and passions, so we can use those things as tools and vehicles to win people to Christ. When the righteous rule the people rejoice. Why? Because we do things RIGHT!
We must have Spirit-filled Ambassadors as:
Gift of Giving Ministers
Entrepreneurs who dominate markets.
Real Estate Investors
Editors of Magazines
Soccer moms who are full of the Holy Spirit (who will witness to other soccer moms)
Christian Fiction and Non-Fiction Authors.
Children’s Book writers to help educate our children with God’s righteousness
Word of Faith musical artist.
Screen Writers for TV shows, movies, and plays.
Holy Ghost Hair Dressers!
Inventors. We need spirit-filled believers to think beyond a church service and go out and use their brain to invent the next world-changing gadget!
County Clerk officers
And many more spiritual gifts!
What would it look like if the majority of businesses, land, and services were owned by spirit-filled, Word of Faith believers? What if the righteous were in rule?
We have a mandate to discover our call and do what Jesus did and greater works! That’s the authority given to us by God. We have been given orders to do the assignment and we are fully backed by the Kingdom!
John 14:12 I assure you that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father. 13 I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father can be glorified in the Son. 14 When you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.
After you’re born again you must learn to LIVE righteous. This means doing things the way God does them. So, it’s not just about “Stop sinning”, it’s about “Stop fearing and talking doubt”. It’s also about being on the assignment that God called you to. It’s about establishing God’s Kingdom on the earth using the ministry God called you to. This revolution starts with you!
