Finding Protection from Vulnerability to Government:
Why We Must Pray for Governmental Leaders
I Tim. 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
Dan. 9:20 Now while I was speaking and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God in behalf of the holy mountain of my God, 21 while I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness about the time of the evening offering. 22 He gave me instruction and talked with me and said, "O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you insight with understanding.

This is a major word that arose out of family prayer tonight regarding finances and investment strategies in conjunction with our knowledge about the evils of the financial and governmental system (Babylon) amidst which we find ourselves. I want to send this out to my readers not only to bless you but to reinforce in myself what I have heard in my spirit.
We have come to understand that our house is a garrison of angelic military activity through ceaseless praise and worship. By offering ourselves daily to the Lord this way, we have had a realization that the Lord uses our home as a place of refreshment for angels in their comings and goings to accomplish their assigned tasks from the Throne for our area.
At the same time we have lacked revelation on how to handle all the knowledge that has been fed to us regarding the system amidst which we find ourselves (Babylon). Two months ago, the Lord spoke a direct word to my spirit saying “I want to deliver you from this system [I am going to deliver you from this system].” He was specifically speaking about the tax system and the system of fiat debt currency under which we have all been shackled here in America and the West for nearly 100 years.
Since that February word, I have been given to understand many things from various “clandestine” sources about the evil nature of this money system, how it is really run, how it is designed to keep the average wage earner enslaved to a perpetual cycle of debt to its creators, as well as the nature of the law used to enforce this system and emerging alternative legal and investment strategies some are attempting for a way out.
This present governmental and banking system is a forerunner to the final beast system in contrast to the forerunners of overcomers through whom God now lives as outposts amidst the system. So there is a parallel forerunner situation in development between the system and God’s royal worshipping priesthood.
In the natural we know ourselves to be sitting ducks for this system. Surely, we are utterly surrounded by the enemy Babylon amidst which we have been planted strategically by the Lord. As Jesus said, “I send you forth as sheep amidst wolves.” And so we are. We are a very vulnerable people in the midst of this developing world system. Sheep have no natural protection against a system designed by wolves to plunder and enslave them.
It was against these realizations of both the nature of this system and of our standing as an angelic outpost in its midst that the Lord began to bring forth another meaning to Paul’s exhortation to pray for governmental leaders “so that we may lead a quite and peaceable life.” It goes beyond the understanding that the Lord wants men of every social strata to be saved. Here is what He showed me:
The Lord requires prayer for leaders of this forerunner beast system as the means of releasing the angels assigned to our outpost to convert the light in our outpost into actual deliverance from and authority over the leaders of the beast system.
It is the angelic releasing of such authoritative light from our worship that can lead to our supernatural protection against the intrusions of such leaders, a protection which is foremost spiritual, not natural. Prayer for the leaders of the beast system is what gives us prophetic authority over the beast system as the Lord’s forerunners. This is the Lord’s answer to our natural vulnerability as sheep amidst wolves.
The sum of these realities is akin to the situation where Elisha was surrounded by the besieging army, utterly vulnerable, but yet he was not afraid of that army because the hidden armies of the Lord were surrounding the surrounders.
It is by praying for those in authority that we not only release the angels to battle, but through their battle have sent to us the revelation we need in all the various issues we need for how to handle thorny financial and governmental issues under this system.
We receive wisdom and direction to questions as, “Do we give or do we invest to have more to give?” And further, “Do we trust in pure protection from the Lord against intrusive governmental agencies, or do we take steps by revelational strategy to act on the knowledge now coming forth that can free us in natural ways from governmental interference?”
This is akin to how the answer came to Daniel from Gabriel amidst prayer and fasting. There is every possibility that Daniel was praying for and about the leaders in Babylon in conjunction with His confessing the sins of His own people and praying for the Lord’s government at Jerusalem to be established. So should we be praying.
The Lord wants us to know that, as forerunners, just like Elijah, just like John the Baptist, we are indeed going to be facing the authorities of this forerunner beast system head on—and that this is the intercessional strategy we must become illumined to in order to meet these confrontations in confidence and authority when they come.
Right now in American Christendom, we are lulled into a false sense of security with relationship to our surrounding society being comparatively unmolested yet, totally unaware of a silent trap which has been set for all of us through the secret actions of many in high places over the last several generations.
Are you aware for instance that the U.S. Constitution says that nothing in the Constitution can be used to impair the right to contract, and that therefore the entirety of this system has been rigged by the securing of your signature on every governmental and banking application and license form in order to create an implied contract by which the government can “legally” maintain that you have therefore surrendered all your Constitutional rights to it—and that therefore this is why it appears that the Bill of Rights is dead and nobody has any rights anymore?
We have all as dumb “sheeple” been led astray into signing ourselves away into this slavery by our uninformed consent. And are you aware that because of our complete ignorance in these matters, we are therefore treated by the courts as legal minors and incompetents who have no rights, and that is what attorneys are for?
Because of the depth of our blindness and ignorance amidst this system, this prayer strategy I am now sharing with you is the only strategy by which our rights as kings and priests of God in the earth after the order of Melchizedech is going to be defended and made enforceable to eventually overcome the beast.
So it is we must have a new eye to the meaning and purpose of our worship before the Lord in the midst of this Babylon in which we dwell. We must be bridal worshippers in order to even have an outpost the Lord can command in the earth. Beyond this, we must be warring intercessors in order to have an outpost that releases angels to expand the authority of the light of our family and church outposts against the darkness represented by the surrounding and increasingly invasive Babylonian beast system.
This worship must include prayer for government leaders. And the target of that prayer must be so that angelic revelation and wisdom may come to us as it did to Daniel, whereby we might receive the strategies by which we may “lead a quiet and peaceable life” free from their hidden schemes, that we may be delivered from the trap they are setting for us as wolves against defenseless ignorant sheep.
I encourage you to pass this word on to anyone you know that is ripe enough to receive it and can benefit from it.
