TOPIC: THE SIGNET RING OF AUTHORITY (4)
TEXT: Dan 6:15-16
Then the men went as a group to the king and said to him, “Remember, O king, that according to the law of the Medes and Persians no decree or edict that the king issues can be changed.” So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions’ den. The king said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!”
Before examining further details ,it is good to note that whatever is sealed by the signet ring of the king is bound on the king himself. Darius wanted to rescue Daniel from the decree he made but he could not. The same happened to Herod when he promised to give Herodias’ daughter whatsoever she requested and who later asked for the head of John the Baptist. Herod was not that wicked but he could not do against his word else his throne will be lost. It would lose its power.Likewise, God cannot reverse the authority that is in the name of Jesus because it has been given by him. All powers bow to that authority.The judicial seat of heaven has approved it.
Also it is worth noting that in the case of Pharaoh when he handed over the authority by giving the signet ring to Joseph or King Ahasuerus, both were still physically alive if there is any argument. God is alive forever and he is confirming the authority that is in the name of Jesus. He is watching us to perform.We must not be afraid to do the maximum and bring salvation to our generation.The default setting of this world (by the devil) is that of decay. If it will be prevented from corruption, it must be that we rest it for the kingdom to manifest.We are called to reset the system the way God intended it to be that is why we are granted access to his intention and thoughts so as to implement them on the earth.
Thank God for his faithfulness to his word and authority in the name of Jesus.
Pray that the season of divine opportunity coming upon this nation will not be misused in Jesus name.
