Eph 6:10-12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
We are in a spiritual battle! We live in a spiritual world that influences every aspect of our lives. Because we can’t see spirits all the time does not mean they are not there. We are, and will continue to be, in an intense spiritual warfare until the time Christ returns. There is no such thing as a peaceful co-existence between the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light! There are only two spiritual kingdoms and you are either in one or the other. (Col 1:13)
Psalm 2:1-5 “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and rulers counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure.”
When the righteous live according to Godly standards, they bring conviction to, and put restraints upon, the unrighteous. When Gods servants speak out against adultery, abortion, same-sex marriage, homosexuality, divorce, pornography, drugs, and corruption - the unrighteous rage against these restraints. This has become very blatant over the last fifteen years. At the same time the church has forfeited much moral ground through apathy, complacency, and lack of willingness to stand up and fight for what is right.
Militant, Merciful and Miraculous
The church is called a mystery in the book of Ephesians. (3:9-10) Paul reveals this mystery by portraying the church in a number of different ways: a Temple (2:21-22); a Family (3:14-15); a Body (4:15-16); a Bride (5:25-27, 32); and an Army (6:10-17)! These are all different portraits of the Church.
The Church has two main purposes to fulfill:
The Great Commandment-Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind. (Matt 22:37)
The Great Commission-To win souls and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19-20)
Ezekiel 37:4, 10 “O dry bones hear the word of the Lord! So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them and they lived and stood upon their feet, an exceeding great army.”
The Revived church is Militant and Miraculous as well as Compassionate and Gentle.
Militant means engaged in warfare, aggressive in a cause. (Matt 11:12) Some people say they have faith, but they have no fight! Without fight, Caleb would never have lived and enjoyed his inheritances. Paul would never have finished his course with joy. We have to learn how to put on the whole amour of God and fight the good fight of faith, so we can all finish our course with joy!
A Revived Church is designed:
- To restore righteousness to a city, a state, and a nation (Prov 14:34)
- To make ready a people prepared for the Lord (Luke 1:17)
- To make Jesus Lord over all the earth (Ps 72:8)
We desperately need a Massive Spiritual Awakening, and preferably before the USA elections on Nov 8th. We don’t want backslidden, lukewarm, biblically illiterate Christians voting on our future. We need a revived church that has repented, come back into its right mind, and is willing to fight for our land, our families, our freedom, and our future. We need an exceeding great spiritual army to emerge out of this heap of very dry bones.
Yours for a Great Spiritual Awakening that will Make America Great Again!
