The mantle of your assignment as wife will bring new dimensions in glory but also in combat. You have to be prepared now. Holy Spirit is your physical trainer now. What is your current spiritual workout regimen? We can’t afford to gain the weight of the world. Read the Word of God and study it every day. Ask Holy Spirit to speak so that you get revelation about the Word. Exercise your spiritual weapons now. When the spirit of depression comes, which muscles will you flex? Psychological warfare? Mental battles in your mind? People being used? Loneliness? Flesh wars are not acceptable at the next level. Are you fighting in the spirit or the flesh now? It’s time. We must workout daily and nightly in order to win the daily battles that we face now but also to prepare for the next level of warfare when God connects us with our husbands in this season. Do you see the warfare taking place in the world right now? We do not live in a vacuum. Everything happening in the world is connected to the spiritual realm. The battles will impact our marriages too. Our marriage is established to impact the spiritual realm. It’s all connected. Get in shape for battle. Everything you’re experiencing now is part of your militaristic training for combat in your marriage.
Kings, have you been waiting on the blessings of God? Have you been feeling like there has to be more than this in the kingdom for you before Yeshua (Jesus Christ) comes back? God are you willing to obey his commands? Yeshua says if you love Him then obey His commands. Yeshua says that He rewards those who believe He exists and who diligently seek Him. God wants to surely bless you. God wants to bless your children. God wants to enable you and your children to take possession of the cities, land, and territories that our enemies took from us. God wants to use you to prepare the kingdom for the return of Yeshua. Are you a man who obeys Jehovah? Are you a man who listens to the instructions from Holy Spirit? Are you a man who is willing to lay down his own life for the kingdom of God? If you are saying, “I am that man” right now, I’m decreeing and declaring the blessings of God over your life right now. Your health is blessed. Your finances are blessed. You’re blessed in your going out and in your coming in. Your home is blessed. Your bank account is blessed. Your career is blessed. Your ministry is blessed. Your business is blessed. Every thing you set your hands to do that is aligned with the will of God for your life is blessed in the name of Yeshua.
Kings, the enemy has you so caught up and distracted with the things in a world that is passing away that you have to check your motives today. Ask yourselves, “Why are we doing what we do? Is Yeshua and heaven our main focus? Do the things we do on a day to day basis align with the main focus? Are we storing up treasures on earth or giving to the needy?” Anything that you’ve made bigger than God has to be burned up on the altar now. Anything that you’ve allowed to cause you to fall into sin has to be burned up on the altar right now. God has finally gotten you the house in the suburbs. If He asks you to leave it, burn it on the altar. God has finally given you stability in your position on the job. If He asks you to leave it and step out on faith in business and ministry, burn it on the altar. You finally have the woman that you just knew would be your wife but God confirmed that the relationship is dead. Burn it on the altar. What if he told you to take everything you own and give it to the poor? You have to be willing to lay it on the altar on top of the wood and hold the match to it. If God doesn’t provide the ram, burn it on the altar.
Kings, God wants to know what are you willing to sacrifice in this season? What are you willing to lay down for Him? What is it that you cherish so much in your heart that you’ve given your focus and your attention to? You’ve wanted something or someone so badly and you finally got it. Now God wants to know have you made that thing or that person an idol. God wants to know do those things mean more to you than He does? Are you reading the Word of God more than you’re focusing on the reports that are due at work? Are you developing your relationship with Him more than you’re busy doing ministry? Are you setting your mind on things above or on getting comfortable in this world? This world is coming to an end so a powerful heart check initiative would be to ask yourself, “What am I willing to give up for God?”
Do you know who you are? Do you know whose you are? Do you know how valuable you are? Do you know how strong you are? Do you know how influential you are? Do you know the power on the inside of you? Do you know what you bring to the table? You are worth far more than rubies.
I researched the value of rubies using the International Gem Society (IGS) to get an idea of the value of rubies today. Rubies are some of the most popular gems for good reasons. “As gem-quality examples of the mineral corundum, [rubies] are exceptionally durable and one of the few gem species whose color reaches vivid saturation levels. Fine quality rubies are some of the most expensive gems, with record prices over $100,000 per carat…As of May 2015, the record price for a ruby is approximately 2 million per carat,” according to IGS. A ruby is a valuable gem!
The revelation I got about the scripture, Proverbs 31:10 is that the queen, King Lemuel’s mother, from whose perspective this scripture was written understood the value of rubies. More importantly, the queen understood the value of a virtuous and noble woman for her son the king (prince). The queen asks who can find a virtuous woman for she is worth far more than rubies. There is no question about whether or not a woman worth far more than rubies can be found. You, virtuous woman, are worth far more than rubies waiting to be seen for who you are and to be found, valued, cherished, and appreciated. Do you know your own worth?

King, what has crippled you? At no fault of your own, did something happen to you that changed the course of your life and crippled you? Were you born to a mother who was addicted to crack, drugs or alcohol and it changed the course of your life? It impacted your entire educational journey. You were labeled from the moment they read your files. They tested you and of course they said that you were eligible for special education because you processed things more slowly than your peers the same age as you. This crippled you because your perception of yourself was that you would never be able to read eloquently or speak articulately so you lost your crown. Or maybe it was that you were given up for adoption and passed along from foster care to foster care. Unimaginable things happened to you and those things crippled you from ever being able to trust people. You still wake up in cold sweats from nightmares about the things that you suffered through then. Maybe you literally became crippled from some physical ailment or being dropped or being burned or being abused. And because of your disability, you cowered away from some of the positions and other blessings God had for you with your name on it. Jehovah wants you to know that there is still a crown for you. You are restored now. Everything that the locusts stole from you will be given back to you in this season. Shift your perception of yourself and recognize who you are in Yeshua now. Remember who you truly are – royalty.
A Nazarite was one who was dedicated to God from birth. As a result, he was not to drink any wine or any other fermented drink along with other requirements. The reason a Nazarite couldn’t drink alcohol was he took a vow of purity. Proverbs 31 is a famously known for the subject, “the virtuous woman.” We typically skip over the introduction of this prophecy which is a mother’s instructions to her son, King Lemuel. The Hebrew meaning of King Lemuel’s name means, “for God.” His mother the queen wanted her son King Lemuel’s life and his reign and his marriage to the virtuous woman to be in alignment with God’s will for his life. One thing she emphasized in her instructions to her son was for him to stay away from wine and liquor. She wanted her son to have the stamina of a true king. Wine and liquor can open a man up to other kinds of spirits that may cause him to fall into sin. When Noah got drunk, he exposed himself and his sons saw him naked. If we’re honest, drunkenness has caused some of us to be in some precarious situations too. King Lemuel’s mother says in Proverbs 31 that drunkenness can cause a king to forget the very laws he imposed. Drunkenness can cause a king to pervert the justice of all the afflicted. How can one reign and rule when he isn’t in his right mind?
The short-term effects of alcohol use are “slurring of speech, drowsiness, emotional changes, sleep disruption, and the lowering of body temperature. The long-term effects of alcohol use are nausea and vomiting, loss of bladder and bowel control, black outs after which a drinker does not remember what happened while he or she was drinking, temporary loss of consciousness, and ultimately a coma and death.” As if the physical effects are not enough, the portals of a man with a spirit of addiction are open to so many types of demonic oppression that can only be closed through the deliverance and healing of Yeshua. A king must be free of addiction and oppression to rule and reign effectively.
A king is one who has lordship and sovereignty in a specific sphere of influence. Every man of Jehovah who believes in Yeshua and who is ruled by Holy Spirit is a king on the earth right now. It is time to establish your kingdom. It is time to rule in your domain. But a king must be alert and of sober mind lest he is caught off guard by the enemy, the devil. A king has to be sober to open his mouth for the speechless. A king must be sober to judge righteously and make fair decisions. A king must be sober to plead the cause of the poor and needy. A king must be sober to lead his children who are joint heirs in his kingdom. A king must be sober to lead and love his wife. A king must be sober to lead the family into kingdom dominion and wealth. A king must be sober to hear what the instructions from Holy Spirit. A king must be sober to give wise counsel. A king must stay sober to make royal decrees.
Men of God, Jehovah is calling you back to your throne. Adjust your crowns and rule. Adjust your crowns and reign. Hold your head up high so your crown won’t topple. The king in you is crying to come out. That’s why you’ve been tormented in your spirit. That’s why you’ve been depressed. That’s why you’ve been in a state of confusion. Your robe is tattered and battered and torn and so are you. Your jewels are barely in their rightful position but neither are you. But God says for you to come as you are any way. You can’t stay in a position beneath your assignment any longer. Holy Spirit is speaking to the king in you. God is about to make you a brand new king with a brand new robe. God is ready to give you a feast fit for a king in the presence of your oppressors. Won’t you walk in your anointing, Proverbs 31 king? Won’t you answer your call today? Jené Walker
