The Church- The Change Agent of God!
Wake Up Church!
“…because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God,” Psalms 55:19 (GNV).
We love our comfort zones…. We love the status quo, we do not like change because it will uncover all of the mess and we don’t want to do what we will have to do to fix the mess!
Change is uncomfortable and messes with our daily lives and even though we know and understand that this infection is below the surface, we would rather keep putting a bandage on it instead of going through the pain of pulling the scab off so that the putrid infection can come out!
God is trying to use a person to uncover what has been wrong in this country for many years and yet even as Christians we do not want to upset the apple cart! Somehow we would rather turn a blind eye to the fact that we have murder on demand, and that our lack of governing as the Ecclesia (the church) of Jesus Christ will allow judges appointed to the Supreme Court for possibly generations who will take away our rights as Christians!
I am sorry I must speak out!
Jesus told us in Matthew 18:18-19 that, whatever we forbid on earth, must have already been forbidden in Heaven and what we allow on earth will have already have been allowed in heaven!
People, we are the gatekeepers of what happens in our nation and if we do not do what God calls us to do right now, which is allow God to uproot all of the corruption and bring His Kingdom into these mountains of society then we will be judged as the Ecclesia in America!
God is looking for those who will pull down the kingdom of darkness and establish the Kingdom of God in the mountain of Government and every other of the 7 mountains of society!
Our prophetic mandate as the Church is said best in Jeremiah.
“Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant,” Jeremiah 1:9-10.
God Is Looking for Some Deplorables
God is looking to see who will be brave and take a stand for righteousness, regardless of the consequences!
We are so afraid of this change, because we so not want to be responsible for the uproar that is about to happen in society but all of those who did great exploits in the Bible, stood up to the corruption of their day!
They were willing to be CHANGE MAKERS through their stand for God and His ways! They were sometimes rough characters who had nothing to lose but had a call of God!
When we look at that list in God’s word we can see that they were some unsavory characters like Moses the murderer and Sampson the whore monger, David the adulteress, Rahab the Harlot, Saul the Christian killer, who later became Paul!
It is time for the change makers to stand up and be known, but instead we are majoring on the minors and minoring on the majors!
I have heard the term “WAKE UP AMERICA” in this season about this election. But I say “WAKE UP CHURCH!”
Govern as Our King told us to govern! Don’t make choices because of your gender, color, comfort, money, or anything else, because, “when the righteous are in power the Nation prospers but sin is a reproach to any nation!” (Proverbs 29:2).
God is holding us responsible for what happens in our Nation and we have been given that mandate to RULE IN THE MIDST OF OUR ENEMIES!
“Awake, awake, Put on your strength, O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; For the uncircumcised and the unclean Will no longer come into you,” Isaiah 52:1 (AMP).
