Taking a Stand for Truth & Reclaiming Culture
"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." - Romans 12:2
Do not forget the whole story of God. Do not set aside His great wonders, and trade your courage for fear, do not forget your God and trade His strength for your weakness! Why have we forsaken the awesomeness of the power of God? We act as if God called us to only warm seats on a Sunday morning, going through the routine.
Hasn't God called you to be the head and not the tail? Hasn't God called you to be strong and courageous? To take up your cross and follow Him? Hasn't He called you to change and transform Nations? Hasn't He called you to stand before kings, to trample on the enemy, to do greater works and greater miracles than that of Jesus? Not to warm seats, but to be His hands and feet! This requires working out His Great and Awesome power in your life! To shine upon men that they would know Him!
Where is your courage? Where has your faith gone? Did God not deliver Abraham in every battle? Did He not pour out His spirit on the children of Jacob, giving them victory? Did He not rescue the children of Israel from Egypt with a mighty swipe of His hand? Did He not spread the seas, lead by fire, and lead through a pillar of smoke? Did He not engulf the entire Mount Sinai and speak to His people? Did He not feed them, and provide water? Did He not defeat all of their enemies? Yes, He did!
He is the God who created all of what we see, all we know, the air we breathe and the blood in our veins. It is not a question of if He can deliver us, it is all about will His people rise up? Will His people remember the God they serve, and His awesome power? Will they shake off the shackles of fear and mediocrity? Will they shake off their complacency and lean into the Lord with all of their hearts? We have a battle to engage in and it's been waging against us for far too long! Remember the God you serve!
In this Nation, the will of the people is to set the tone for the laws and policy implemented. Those laws are there to protect the rights of the people and defend the most innocent. Yet look what has happened while God's people have been weak, distracted, and afraid. We have allowed this Nation to be led by the spiritually bankrupt, the corrupt, the elite and the occult, the demonic and the Prince of Lies. Is it stolen, if we left it at the curb?
Love does not enable, love is steadfast, and holds its own ground. Where is the ground held as we allow our children to be abused by the vilest kind of evil? No, this is not love, this is unfathomable! This is weakness, and the greatest kind of deception. To stand by and allow evil to proliferate while we go about our comfortable lives, this is not love. The time to stand is now. The time to be the King and Priest you were called to be is now. The time to trust in the Lord, and send those demons running is now! When did you ever see Jesus hang out with the demonic? Never! He cast them out! If your faith is not sending demons fleeing, but is coddling them, maybe it's time to rethink your definition of love. Love, in its truest form, leads and impacts from the very heart of God. Love sees and hopes for God's will for others and is willing to encounter, impact, and fight to have it worked out in the lives of those around us.
It is time to wake up, it is time to take a stand and to take our seat at the table. To set a resolve in your heart, with a fire that cannot be quenched. To be the Church God has called us to be. To be Bold! To be Confident! To be Strong and Courageous! The Lord your God is with you! He is with us all! Take up your cross, and impact this Nation for the Lord! If you can't do it when you have freedom, how will you do it facing the gallows of the end times? There are no excuses for the fear we have adopted! Shake it off and draw near to the Lord of all Creation. There you will know what He is calling you to do in your life.
