Divine Pronouncements (Your Identity as Kings)  

Text: Proverbs 16:10, Psalm 149:2-9, Proverbs 8:2-15, Proverbs 25:2, Proverbs 16:12.

God is shifting us from just being a church to a governmental church.

God sees you as priceless, and your worth isn’t determined by what you have or don’t have at the moment. Your kingship (place in Christ) is not determined by what you have or do not have.  Whether you have money, cars, children, houses, or not. it does not determine how God sees you.


Proverbs 16:10

 10 An oracle is upon the king’s lips, no judgment of his mouth is false.



You must identify with your call as king and priest before God to be able to make divine sentences/pronouncements (decrees). It is important to know that your kingship is potent in the area of your calling. 


Psalms 149:2-9

 2 Let Israel be glad in its maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their king. 3 Let them praise his name in dance, make music with tambourine and lyre. 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. 5 Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, cry out for joy on their couches, 6 With the praise of God in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hands, 7 To bring retribution on the nations, punishment on the peoples, 8 To bind their kings in shackles, their nobles in chains of iron,9 To execute the judgments decreed for them— such is the glory of all God’s faithful. Hallelujah!



We are God’s government on earth, hence the need to function in a certain way so we can enforce the government of God on earth.

God delays certain judgments until a kingdom replacement arises; we must rise up and take the various mountains God has called us to. When we rise, God will shut certain worldly systems down.


Proverbs 8:2-15

 2 On the top of the heights along the road, at the crossroads she takes her stand;3 By the gates at the approaches of the city, in the entryways she cries aloud: 4 “To you, O people, I call; my appeal is to you mortals. 5 You naive ones, gain prudence, you fools, gain sense. 6 Listen! for noble things I speak; my lips proclaim honest words. 7 Indeed, my mouth utters truth, and my lips abhor wickedness. 8 All the words of my mouth are sincere, none of them wily or crooked; 9 All of them are straightforward to the intelligent, and right to those who attain knowledge. 10 Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold. 11 [For Wisdom is better than corals, and no treasures can compare with her.] 12 I, Wisdom, dwell with prudence, and useful knowledge I have. 13 [The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil;] Pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth I hate. 14 Mine are counsel and advice; Mine is strength; I am understanding. 15 By me kings reign, and rulers enact justice;


Proverbs 25:2

 2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the glory of kings to fathom a matter.



The journey for discovery is your unveiling as king; God is not going to throw things on your laps; your ability to search out matters proves your kingship. God has woven your answer into your process. What God conceals is treasure; the discovery is where your rising lies.

Wisdom is like a crown upon the righteous. You cannot make pronouncements without wisdom. We do not make pronouncements based on what we hear God say alone, but also by discerning the wisdom of God in our hearts.

The pronouncement of God over our lives empowers us to carry out the assignment we have been called to do.


Proverbs 16:12

 12 Wrongdoing is an abomination to kings, for by justice the throne endures.



It is an abomination for kings to do unrighteousness or wickedness. Purity is a matter of priority for kings. We ought to come to a place where righteousness becomes the seal on our hearts; this ensures we are aligned with him at all times, which is how we sustain God’s wisdom in our lives and exercise our authority as kings and priests.

Our life’s calling is to conform to the image of the Son of God. If we must progress with God, we have to let go of certain things. You cannot go on with God with certain things in your life.  Don’t let the favor of God seduce you into believing you can do anything. God can do things for us even when he is not pleased with us.
