Have you considered that…
The answers to the current mess do not exist in humanistic philosophies and especially not in politics or protest or previous patterns?
Nor do they exist in “religiously” asking God to “bless this mess”, and then go on with the status quo – hoping that it will all disappear… somehow!
Let’s be who we are, as spiritual warriors in Christ, and take this battle onto higher ground! The adversary and accuser is spiritual, hateful toward God and man, cunning, sometimes even charming, a pathological liar and father of lies and all liars, real, and has been a contender for and pretender to the throne of the hearts of men since the beginning. This agenda obviously has been in place for a very long time through the complicity of men.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:10-18)
“IF my people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, THEN I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Let’s get down to business, Jesus Christ loving people, understanding what it actually means to be “called by My name”. Let’s stop “taking His name in vain” by “playing church” but not being His holy Body on Earth, called out and set apart for His purposes.
Prayer for the Christian is meant to be a way of life, not something everybody turns to when their back is against the wall. “In the name of Jesus” means a lot more than something tacked onto the end of a prayer almost as a sort of charm or incantation.
It is imperative that every blood ransomed, redeemed by Jesus Christ soul to be on his or her knees with the Good Book open, and perpetual prayer on his heart, mind, and lips – with spiritual ears open to discern the Still Small Voice of the Holy Spirit, answering the question, “Lord, what would You have me do? Where do I fit into this?” Be as Jesus – “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.” (John 5:19)
The time has come that there can be no “advice” from any other than the Almighty Himself. “Ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking…” Then when the answer comes, do it, and let no one talk you out of it.
