Sudden Enthronement

17th July 2021

Scripture Reading: 2 King 9: 1-13


“And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead:” (2 Kings 9: 1)

In our Focal Scripture, when Elisha invited one of the sons of the prophets who would eventually go to anoint Jehu, Jehu was completely unaware of what was coming to him. He didn’t pray to be king; he didn’t aspire to be king; he didn’t have the ambition to be king; he was not even preparing for kingship; Jehu was just on his own and kingship located him. It was an unexpected enthronement. It was an unplanned enthronement.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will be enthroned unexpectedly. You are rising into heights you didn’t plan to attain; you are getting into new realms you did not pray to be in; you will be congratulated for attainments that were not a part of your plan; you will be suddenly invited to take the thrones that others are currently occupying; you will be called to your new season; you will be enthroned and crowned suddenly.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: the same way Elisha held conversations with one of the sons of the prophets concerning the enthronement of Jehu, the Lord is causing conversations for your enthronement to begin. God is causing men to arise and position you on your higher level; God is causing men to speak of you with regard to the vacancies that are emerging; God is causing your name to be mentioned in the place of royalty.

Get set: your name is about to be announced in the place of favour. You are about to be chosen for mega results; you are about to be crowned in the midst of your opposers; you are about to take the place of men whom God has rejected from sitting on thrones; you are about to be considered for elevation and congratulations; you are about to be called that one whom God favoured with higher levels; you are rising without protocols.

As surely as the Lord lives, you will sit on your throne and wear your crown. As surely as the Lord lives, conversations for your enthronement have begun.


I receive my enthronement without delay, in Jesus’ name!
