66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
Our 66th and final county to pray for in South Dakota is Ziebach County, with the city of Dupree being the county seat. We release the book of Revelation to Ziebach County. The Cheyenne River Indian Reservation covers all of Ziebach county along with Dewey County. The Lakota Sioux , division of the Teton, Bands - Minnecujoy, Two Kettle (Oohenupa), Sans Arc (Itazipcoo) and Blackfoot (Si Sapa) reside here. The tribal headquarters is in the city of Eagle Butte. Ziebach County is one of the poorest counties in the nation with 62% of the residents in poverty. We declare the words of the Gospel of Jesus that "the first shall be last, and the last shall be first."
The book of Revelation presents a panoramic view of history from the time of its author John, to eternity future. Revelation is partly historical and partly prophetical. Revelation differs from the other books in the Bible in the way it was revealed. It was revealed directly to John through a vision, and he was told exactly what to write and what not to write. There are various types and symbols used in this book along with the meaning of many of the symbols. The book opens with a vision of the Glorified Christ and follows with messages to the seven churches.
Revelation is the last chapter of a love story. The Bible is a great love story between God and man. Revelation means "an unveiling," and we see Jesus unveiled in this book. The central message of the Revelation is that "the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!" (19:6). This theme has been validated in history by the victory of the Lamb who is "Lord of lords and King of kings" (17:14). Revelation has much to say about all three persons of the Godhead, but is especially clear in its presentation of the resurrected Christ who has received all authority to judge the earth. Some of the many ways Jesus is revealed in this book are the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, the ruler over the kings of the earth (1:5), the First and the Last (1:17), He who lives (1:18), the Son of God (2:18), holy and true (3:7), the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God (3:14), the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David (5:5). a Lamb (5:6), Faithful and True (19:11), the Word of God (19:13), King of Kings, and Lord of Lords (19:16), Alpha and Omega (22:13). the Bright and Morning Star (22:16), and the Lord Jesus Christ (22:21). This book is indeed "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" (1:1) since it comes from Him and centers on Him. Also, the description of the Holy Spirit as "the seven Spirits of God" (1:4; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6) shows His illuminating, purifying and energizing ministry.
Father in the name of Jesus, we Bless Ziebach County! We declare that the Lion of the tribe of Judah would be known across this land as You Roar for Your Lakota people. And that the injustices and poverty that have caused suffering, may now be brought to an end. That Your people will open the door for Jesus to come in causing them to be Overcomers in You! And that they can drink freely from Your River of Life.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne" (3:21-22).
"And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come, and whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely" (22:17).
The overall picture here is one of the VICTORIOUS JESUS! We declare Victory in Jesus Christ over the people and the land of Ziebach County. We thank you Lord, that even as John the Revelator experienced the Risen Christ, so too shall Your Lakota people experience You.
"I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty" (Revelation 1:8).
" . . . The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" (Revelation 11:15).
Let Your Kingdom Come, Let Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven in Your Lakota people and the land of Ziebach County!
