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, Mark Rutland shows how these interactions demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world. Readers will discover:

God positions His messengers to confront and advise those who lead in the natural realms. 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, boss, or 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.

The power leaders possess is ultimately in God’s hands. If they choose to listen and obey Him, He will elevate them and use them for the good of His people.
