FROM NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR DR. MARK RUTLAND
Power is only as strong as the authority that sustains it.
This book will help you be a better leader. It will help you receive a healthy dose of accountability through applied spiritual authority.
The biblical prophets did not live or prophesy in a contextual vacuum. They spoke into real-life circumstances to real-life leaders such as kings, queens, governors, and generals. Drawing on biblical accounts, Dr. Mark Rutland shows how these interactions, sometimes in the form of advice but more often as dramatic confrontations, demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world.
God positions His messengers to confront and advise those who lead in the natural realm. Likewise, Satan is also working to position his own servants near the world’s leaders hoping to steer them away from the things and plans of God. To whom those leaders listen will determine, to a large extent, the fate of nations.
God often positions His servants at the right elbow of leaders in a wide range of disciplines, from business to education to entertainment to politics. Every believer should be open to being “God’s prophetic voice” in someone else’s life, whether that person is a child, a boss, or a town councilman. Likewise, every believer should be in constant prayer for and humbly sensitive to wise counsel sent from God as a gift of grace.
God makes and unmakes kings. When they can discern and listen to His voice, He sustains their well-wielded authority with His supernatural power.
“It is my prayer that you will embrace the journey Mark is about to take you on—that you’ll allow the prophets to speak to you as they spoke to kings. Get closer to these great Old Testament men of God, learn from them, glean from their wisdom, and let them shape you.”
-Dr. Charles Stanley
