What Happens When Someone Crowns Himself King


As voter fraud allegations and videos of recorded fraud are coming forth in multiple states, rather than waiting until these issues are resolved, Joe Biden and the Democrats have chosen to declare Biden the winner and install him as president-elect.

That is a dangerous move in this national game of chess. There is a difference between installing yourself and being truthfully chosen and anointed for the position. One is fraud, while the other is authentic.

Where have we seen this happen before? The Lord spoke this word to me Saturday morning. Five hours later the world erupted with shouts of "Biden is the president-elect."

First Kings 1 tells of just such a move by one of King David's son's, Adonijah. He chose to install himself as king toward the end of his father's life when the kingdom was nearing a transition of power.

Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, "I will be king," and he assembled chariots and horsemen and fifty men to run before him. His father had not confronted him at any time by asking, "Why have you done this?" He also was a very attractive man, and he was born next after Absalom. He conferred with Joab the son of Zeruiah and with Abiathar the priest, and they agreed to help him. But Zadok the priest and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada and Nathan the prophet and Shimei and Rei and David's mighty men did not join Adonijah. Adonijah slaughtered sheep and oxen and fat cattle by the Stone of Zoheleth, which is by En Rogel, and invited all his brothers, the king's sons, and all the men of Judah, the king's servants. But he did not invite Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the mighty men, or his brother Solomon (1 Kings 1:5-10).

Those who perpetuate fraud will always try to remove those who support the authentic.

Takeovers of kingdoms and governments is a move as old as time, especially during times of transition, which is where America now sits. It is because transition is a time of instability and easier for theft to occur.

Why do people prematurely install themselves into positions? Consider the old adage "possession is nine-tenths of the law." The thought is that if someone declares himself leader, it will create the outcome as he tries to move himself into position. Then as now, most people will just go along to get along. "Just accept it with grace," they will say. That's what Adonijah was hoping. That's what they were expecting. That's not what happened.

Then, as now, God had other plans.

There is a difference between installing yourself as "king" and being authentically chosen and anointed for the position. Adonijah installed himself. Solomon was chosen and anointed for it. One was a fraud; the other authentic. And the majority knew the difference. What the premature installation of Adonijah did was simply flush out who was loyal to the true kingdom and who was not. In the end. it did not bode well for those who were part of the coup attempt.

King David's faithful men and leaders, Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, the Kerethites and the Pelethites alerted David to the fraudulent takeover that was happening. Immediately David acted to have the rightful son anointed as king so all could see what was real and what was an attempted coup.

"Then they blew the trumpet, and all the people said, 'God save King Solomon!' All the people came up to see him and played flutes and greatly rejoiced, so that the earth shook at the sound. Adonijah and all the guests that were with him heard the commotion as they were finishing their meal, and when Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, he said, 'Why is the city so loud and in an uproar?'" (1 Kings 1:39b-41).

When the rightful king was anointed into position there was an enormous celebration so that the earth shook with it! We are going to see that in America, even as the clash between those supporting the coup attempt to try to stop the inevitable.

Why is it inevitable? Because of the difference between the fraudulent and the authentic. This is about the God-factor.

The result?

"All the guests that were with Adonijah were afraid and rose up and went on their way. Adonijah feared Solomon. So he got up and went to the altar and held on to its horns. Then Solomon was told, 'Adonijah fears King Solomon, for he has caught hold of the horns on the altar, saying 'Let King Solomon swear to me today that he will not slay his servant with the sword'" (1 Kings 1:49-51)

Buckle in, warriors, we are crossing over. This may be a bumpy ride for a season, but the authentic will be revealed, anointed and seated in our land. This isn't about someone declaring himself king, it's about who has been chosen by the people and anointed for the position. There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed.

If America truly wants a fair election, then the allegations and videos of fraud must be reviewed and investigated. Otherwise, all we now see is a premature installation when someone tries to crown themselves "king."
