The Prayerless Condition of God’s House

Jesus turns over tables

Why did Jesus drive out the people from the temple, overturn the tables of the money changers, and rebuke the religious leaders? Because they were not sanctifying the house of God with prayer (Matthew 21:12–13).

In the same way, prayer is given a very low priority in the Christian churches today. Prayer, Jesus said, is the foundation for all other ministries in the church. Music, preaching, teaching, evangelizing, or any other kind of service must take second place to prayer. Without prayer, all we end up with is a church full of superficial religious activity that does not invite God’s presence and power, nor produce spiritual growth in His people. In short, empty religion is what characterizes the condition of many churches today and is an offence to God.

My House Will Be Called a House of Prayer

Upon His triumphal entry in Jerusalem, Jesus immediately confronts the heart of the problem with His church at that time. The religious leaders had forsaken the ministry of prayer and turned the church into a hub of false spirituality and religious enterprise.

“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” – Matthew 21:12–13

His people were out of sync with His priorities, just as they are today. God’s house, the Christian church, is to be – first and foremost – a house of prayer. Jesus knew that the more focused we are on ourselves, the less we pray. But the more focused we are on communing with God, the more we pray. In other words, lack of prayer produces MAN-centeredness, but the more we pray will produce GOD-centeredness. And that is precisely why Jesus wants His church to be a house of prayer, not just of religious activity.

When we come into God’s house to worship Him we need to forget about ourselves, about all our problems and concerns, and concentrate only on God.

What is the heavenly pattern?

In the Book of Isaiah 6 and Revelation 4-5, the Bible pulls back the veil on heaven and shows us what true worship is all about. Jesus prayed, “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” The essential nature of church here on earth should follow the pattern of what is already happening in heaven, which is prayer, worship, and intimacy with God.

Jesus wants His house to be a house of prayer because He wants to have an intimate relationship with His people. He wants us to talk to Him as we would talk to our closest of friends. And He wants to talk back to us, as well. Only then will He accept our spiritual sacrifices and offerings and reward us by filling us with His presence, power, and joy.

“And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants…these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” – Isaiah 56:6-7

The fact that Jesus singled out the issue of prayerlessness in Matthew chapter 21 shows us just how important this issue was to God. That is because if His house is rightly aligned with His priority of prayer, then it will automatically solve a number of other problems in God’s house, the Christian church today.

Let us resolve to become people of prayer in agreement with the desires of Jesus and do away with all false spirituality in the house of God. Amen.

What God expects of government leaders

God Rules Over the Earth

According to Romans 13:1-5, all human authority and government comes from God. They are His ministers for our good and to maintain a civilized society. All citizens, including Christians, are called to submit to our human authorities, regardless of their political affiliation.

Whether you are a Demomacrat or Republican or Independent in your political views, the United States President, Vice President, members of Congress, military, and all the way down to our local mayor and police officers demand our honor, respect, and obedience. Anyone who criticizes, disrespects, or rebells against their authority is rebelling against God Himself.

Does that mean that all government leaders are morally good people, free from corruption, and perfect in all their actions? Not always.

That is why our prayers for them are so important. As we continually pray for our government leaders, whether good or bad, God will hear our prayers and intervene in their lives. God will use our prayers to sustain and uphold the good leaders, and bring down the bad ones. The Bible tells us:

“the Most High [God almighty] rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He will…” – Daniel 4:17

“He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.” – Daniel 2:21

Therefore, as law-abiding Christians and citizens of our country, it is not our job to criticize, disrespect, or utter bitter complaint or vehement denunciation of leaders we don’t like. We are simply called to pray and allow God time to do His job of personally dealing with our civil authorities. If He has to, God will remove the corrupt leaders who are misusing or abusing their authority, and replace them with new and better leaders.

Accountability

Government leaders should have a sense of accountability before God. They must understand that it is God Himself who has placed them in their position of authority and they are expected to do what is right. If they don’t, God Himself will also judge them and expose their wickedness.

Human and biblical history is full of examples of kings and other leaders that were cut off by God and suffered terrible shame for the crimes they committed while in political office. By contrast, God also praised many of them for doing a good job and promoted them to even higher positions of authority.

High Personal Standards

In order for leaders to stay in power, their personal life must reflect high moral standards that are above reproach. The Bible says, “He that rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God” (2 Samuel 23:3).

Those leaders who disrespect God and abuse their positions of authority will eventually incur God’s judgment and lose their authority. God will not be mocked; whatsoever a man sows, he will reap (Galatians 6:7).

It is true that, in our own American government, there have been numerous examples of past political leaders who became liars and cheaters, took bribes, committed adultery, blasphemed God, and corrupted their authority. Yet in the long run, they reaped the wrongdoing that they sowed and their evil deeds were brought to the light.

A president or prime minister who does these things may think they are getting away without retribution, but God who sees all that is done in darkness, will not allow it to continue for very long. The day of God’s reckoning will eventually come. They will be judged guilty and suffer the consequences. The Bible tells us that law enforcement authorities are the “ministers of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil” (Romans 13:4). No one is exempt from God’s wrath when they break the law, not even the law makers themselves.

The Bible exhorts Christians to pray for those who are in authority – that they would do their job righteously and create a society where all men, especially Christians, can live in peace and godliness and continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men, for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Put not all your trust in princes

At the same time, we should not be naive and believe that all politicians can be trusted. There will always be some politicians (princes) who become intoxicated with their power after coming into office and misuse that power.

This world is permeated by sin and corruption and the pressure of doing evil in our society today is almost insurmountable. But when Jesus Christ returns He will destroy the wickedness from the earth and restore all righteousness. Until Jesus returns, all we can do is restrain the evil in the world through our prayers and by electing political leaders who share our moral convictions, respect of God’s laws, and have a sincere interest in maintaining a lawful and equitable society for all people.

At the same time, when we elect politicians who fail us, let us not be discouraged. Remember that We have a hope for a better world at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will never fail us.

“Do not put your trust in princes,
Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

His spirit departs, he returns to his earth;
In that very day his plans perish.

Happy is he who has the God of Israel for his help, whose hope is in the Jehovah his God, Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps truth forever, Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry.

The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous.

The Lord watches over the strangers;
He relieves the fatherless and widow;
But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.

The Lord shall reign forever—
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise the Lord! (Psalm 146:3-10)

Luis 2017_smBeloved, let’s never get tired of doing what is good because at the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing, if we don’t give up.

Pray For Our Leaders

President-Donald-Trump
President Donald Trump

Regardless of your political affiliation, our leaders are important to God and He urges us to pray for them. You don’t always have to agree with their views or decisions – just pray! God will do the rest.

Our President, Vice President, cabinet members, members of Congress, the Senate, and other elected officials need our prayers. Most importantly, it is God’s will that we intercede for our government and for all those in authority.

“First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men, for kings (Presidents) and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity.” – I Timothy 2:1-2

The Apostle Paul linked our prayers to the peace of our nation and our well being as Christians: “that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness”.

Our heavenly Father wishes that they should be saved and make good and just decisions on behalf of all Americans. “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (vv. 3–4).

At Health, Healing & Faith Ministries, our primary mission is to pray for the lost and share the Good News of Jesus Christ, so that all people may hear of God’s saving power and come to know His truth.
