The Dynamics of Regional Princes: Understanding the Angelic Economy of Your Region
When God created Adam, Adam had perfect vision. His vision extended from this 3 dimensional plane of existence into a world of supernatural beings. Like Jacob in Genesis 28, Adam could simply look up and see a host of angels functioning in their particular assignment. It was this apostolic insight that gave Adam an advantage over all the systems of the Earth in his day (fowls of the air, beasts of the field, and the fish of the sea).
Apostles are given RANK and METRONIC (operating in a specific measure of rule) ability according to the PRINCES in their REGION. Apostles are actually established to match, RANK for RANK, demonic powers and perverse princes. This is why apostles are commissioned and SENT OUT (Matt. 10:1-8).. they are in their very nature ambassadorial and representative. Apostles do not just represent their SENDER, but the place in which they have been SENT FROM and SENT TO. Their POWER BASE comes from the place of their ORIGIN. The Kingdom of Heaven is a vast place, and if an Apostle has been sent from Heaven, all of Heaven’s resources are at his disposal. This principle is also used in the Kingdom of Darkness. There are those that have been set in our city with a tremendous anointing from the Demonic World.. our job as Apostles is to SPY OUT (Num. 13) the land and see what hinders our ADVANCEMENT.
Jesus, our Apostle and High Priest (Heb. 3:1) understood his position and access to angelic activity and assistance.
Matt. 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
A legion was 6000 roman soldiers. 6000 multiplied by 12 is 72,000 angels at his command. This was the metron of Angelic power that the Messiah walked in. Every Apostle, as he/she increases metronically, also increases in angelic strength.
What is your RANK? Rank is NOT determined by your theological degree. It is NOT determined by the size of your church, or how many books your have written. It has everything to do with your level of FAITHFULNESS, PURITY, and MEASURE of RULE.
GUARDS OVER CITIES
We must as apostles and as apostolic houses understand the Angelic economy over our regions.
Dan. 10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Greciashall come.
This scripture shows us clearly that there are high ranking angelic beings given rulership over nations and regions. These being are called PRINCIPALITIES or PRINCES, because they rule by PRINCIPLES. Principalities actually release PRINCIPLES over regions and people groups, and as these principles are promulgated and established, it becomes trends, and when those trends are sustained, it becomes strongholds of culture.
Let’s look at how this works: ANGELS SQUAT OVER REGIONS
Principalities that are given custodianship over regions, literally SQUAT over these areas. We see this is Gen. 1.
Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen. 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. The word “moved” is “rachaph”- it means to brood, to incubate, to sit on the earth as a hen sits on her egg. God literally SQUATTED over the Earth and began to give BIRTH. When Angelic Princes squat over a region, they begin to labor to produce and birth the destiny of that region. When Demonic Princes squat over a region, they actually release FILTH over that place. Squatting is an Apostolic Function. You see this in the ANIMAL KINGDOM. Animals such as lions and other large animals will enter a new territory and squat over that place. They will urinate or defecate there as a sign that “this is my territory”.
Apostles are suppose to claim the rights of cities and regions. It is sad when “apostles” move into a city or region and the demonic powers don’t even take notice of him/her. We must move with such RANK, that all the cohorts of Hell begin to strategize our demise when they feel us coming.
When an Apostolic Gift comes to a region, he/she brings an horde of angelic power with him. Let’s look at this in a systematic way:
You have a city like Detroit. Unemployment, Murder, Sex Trafficking, and Drugs have raped the city. These Demonic Princes have squatted over that land and released that FILTH. So God raises up an APOSTOLIC GIFT. When that gift come to town, he brings with him:
The Spirit of Invention to battle Unemployment. This raises Entrepreneurs.
The Spirit of Peace to combat Murder. This manifest in proactive children education programs, prison ministry, and the unification of churches to bring an atmosphere and image of peace in the city.
The Spirit of Holiness to war against Illicit Sexual Activity (I.S.A. which must be dealt with even in the Church). This comes through the establishing of a standard among individuals first, then homes, churches and businesses.
The Spirit of MIRACLES, SIGNS and WONDERS to battles addiction to DRUGs and DRUG TRADE. The only thing that can break the power of a depressant or a hallucinogenic is the POWER of GOD.
Angels are the GUARDIANS of GATES:
Rev. 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
Now when this Apostolic GIFT comes with these angelic forces.. the RANK PRINCE will send those angels through CUSTOMS and if they are bringing a message that is against the gospel that is being preached by the RANK MEMBER of the Demonic host that has squatted over that region, they have to stay at the door of the city. THEY CAN’T GET IN.
Why is this? Because many times the Demonic Prince have LEGAL RIGHTS to our cities. Here in Atlanta.. the Spirit of Religion has legal rights. Religion is what got the slaves through the harsh seasons of slavery, sharecropping and Jim Crow.. so the spirit of Religion has staked his claim on our CITY… but the devil is a LIAR.. the KINGDOM IS HERE NOW.. and we ain’t (I know its bad English) going nowhere!!!
We have to remember that our God, is a LEGAL God. Now He is NOT legalistic, but He is the Righteous Judge (2 Tim 4:8). This means that He operates based on law and precedent. When a Demon has legal right, we must root out that legality. Many times in our regions, blood altars, covenants and contracts have been made on land that we are trying to prime for the Glory of God. We wonder why we preach to no avail, heal people, but the city is still sick and dying.. there is a legal issue that we are overlooking, and this must be dealt with.
Altars are established through sacrificing, which is murder, child abduction and violence. Wherever the shedding of blood is, there are altars. These altars are given tremendous strength by sexual activity. Illicit Sexual Behavior acts as a catalyst and engine for these false altars. This is a system of demonic worship.
ANGELS gained POWER by PREACHING, PROPHESY, and INTERCESSION
As Apostolic Gifts preach, angels actual begin to grow in strength and influence.
Psa. 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
The voice of HIS word activates them and gives them the power to knock down doors. As apostolic gifts, we must travel in revelation, to centuries in the past to get a correct diagnostic of our city and what it needs. As APOSTOLIC GIFTS, we don’t just heal PEOPLE, we are commissioned to HEAL CITIES.. We don’t just RAISE people from the DEAD, we RAISE NATIONS and DREAMS.. We must be aligned with the Will of God for our region and stand SHOULDER to SHOULDER with the Angelic Forces called alongside us to help. What is the Angelic Economy of your Region? What Demonic Princes are Squatting in your City? What is God trying to birth in your Territory? These are simple questions that will revolutionize our Houses, our Ministries and our Leaders. Last thing, Angels do NOT talk Church.. they speak Kingdom (1 Cor. 13:1).. if we are going to partner with these beings, we must have a clear understanding of who they are and who Jesus is. Jesus is the Captain of Heavens Armies. Angels are NOT to be worshipped or exalted. You are over them. You command them. They are your servants, sent to help you..
We are establishing a CITY CHURCH here in Atlanta.. yesterday (2.13.2011) we had one of the most amazing meetings I have ever been in. During the POWER PRAYER portion of our meeting, I began to groan and wail in the spirit. And then I began to declare, “WE ARE NOT FOR SALE”.. Whenever you begin to pioneer an Apostolic Work, the Demonic Princes of that Region will literally try to BUY YOU OUT.. they will try to get you to align with their VISION for the City.. but we declare.. WE ARE NOT FOR SALE..
