"Reconnecting the Heart of Man, back to the Heart of Father-God, through the Prophetic Song of the Spirit..." 
"Muzzling the Ox, Part 3: As the Church Goes, So Goes the Nation"

by John & Kelly Sielski
As the church goes, so goes the nation.  WE ARE the "...kings, and... all that are in authority".  Neither Jesus nor Apostle Paul ever organized and held prayer meetings, or rallies, for/against Caesar, Herod or Pilate!  The things we see happening in the natural government are simply a reflection and manifestation of what exists behind the scenes in the realm of the spirit; and that, within the church.  The whole creation is not groaning and travailing in pain together, until now, crying out for the next ethnically or gender-appropriate Republican or Democrat; but for the manifestation of the sons of God!  Now, for a long season, the church has supported racism, been one of the greatest proponents or advocates of racism; preaching that the natural Jew is God's superior and chosen race.  But this isn't true.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  "For God so loved the whole world..."  Not just one or two Judaeo-Christian nations.  His vision is much, much bigger than that!  All men met together at the Cross, were included in Christ's vicarious sacrifice; and died... were buried... in the physical body of Christ's own flesh.  There is neither Jew nor Greek (Gentile), there is neither black nor white; as we are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus!  The money-grubbing American church, modern-day church "culture" and current prophetic "movement" believe that the natural Jew is God's superior and chosen race; and they think if they worship that ethnicity, God will... in turn... bless them financially and materially.  It always seems to revolve around... come back to... money, and material possessions.  Speaking of money and material possessions...  We have the money to rent, buy and watch porn.  We have the money for entertainment and amusement.  We have the money for expensive hobbies, recreational activities and sports-worship.  Why is it that when the subject of money... or, tithes and offerings... is addressed, regarding our investing in the true Gospel of Grace; it "triggers" the reaction, "I don't have to give anything!  I'm not under the Law, but under Grace!"  So Grace is giving us permission to rent, buy and watch porn (who knows... maybe God will "speak to us through it"?)?  Grace is giving us permission to invest in entertainment and amusement, while shielding... even "protecting"... our families from the Gospel?  Grace is giving us permission to throw "God's money" into expensive hobbies, recreational activities and sports-worship; while we couldn't possibly care less about the ministries and ministers from whom we are allegedly receiving and "being blessed"?  Something, here, is way "off"... and in a big way.

1 Timothy 2: 1, 2 (KJV)
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority;
that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Revelation 1: 5, 6 (KJV)
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)
4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

1 Corinthians 9: 9, 10 (KJV)
9 For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.

1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour,
especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
