We know Who’s behind it! Now Who will get in Front of It?

Standard

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 
against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:12 

Another shooting!  As we worshiped, someone we missed hatched a plan to further  carry out their anger, frustration and displeasure by attacking Police Officers in Baton Rouge.  As our praise made a sweet smell in the nostrils of our God, the powerful aroma from the spark of gun powder rested upon a community.  As our cries for mercy, deliverance and favor reached the ears of our Lord, civilians and family members of officers wailed as their greatest fears manifested.   Our hands waiving, as tears crawled down our face, mirrored the tears of spouses, children, parents and siblings, as God counted each one.  His heart broken, as He watched His creation commit a sin against its own kind. 32495_all_007_13-sharing

We are ministered to by Media Ministries (divided into two denominations {Democratic & Republican}), one of the most powerful ministries, supported by a full cast of preachers and prophets, whom encourage confusion, support and repeat ignorance, placing before us calls towards unholy action, then standing while hiding its hand as un-moral acts are committed.  Our frustration further stirred by its members, Public Perception, who are armed only with the twisted messages from Media Ministries pulpit.    Gossiping in the Facebook parking lots, and spreading distorted messages of hate and intolerance as learned from its teachers.

Now we stand, suffering from the poisoning and perversion of modern day super apostles, who have taken once again what was given to bring peace, leveraged to breed hate and bigotry.

So now what?

Either we will listen and follow the Gospel of Jesus, or continue to soak in the Gospel of Media!

And right now, I’m afraid of what the masses have developed a taste for.

What is scary?  The world and believers seem to have a taste for the same thing!  A friend spoke of his disappointment of society, to which I responded, “There’s nothing wrong with the world!  They are supposed to behave like this!”  We are the disappointment!  

witnessesI began stating, “As we worshiped, someone we missed hatched a plan!”  Yes, we missed! This was someone’s neighbor!  Blindly, I would guess that a believer stayed within 4 doors of Him, with the message of Love, Peace, Justice and Forgiveness that could have prevented today’s tragedy.  Shamefully, that person probably attended worship (hence the beginning dialogue) as this man and possibly others armed themselves with the wrong weapon and took lives of those serving the public.

Our focus scripture gives us a truth.  One that must remain our focus as we fight and to remain; rather fight to come together as one body.  There is a spiritual battle going on, not a battle of races, or of citizen verses Police Officers.  This battle is good verses evil.  It pits the will of the prince of the air, verses the will of the LORD!   Soldiers are a masses to bring about the desires of their kingdoms King, and by visual, it seems that we have (believers) lost our focus.  We are expanding the Kingdom with acquisitions, and not with salvation, shifting members like manipulated corporate numbers, and being satisfied with smiling fooled investors! 

There you have it!  This is an earthly battle, fought between two Kingdoms.  And many of us are Prisoners of War, either unable to fight or unwilling to advance, ignoring direct orders.  Worthy of a dishonorable discharge, we remain enlisted through His covenant of love, trained and retrained by His long suffering! baptism

He beacons to us, via His true Prophets, Bishops, Apostles, Teachers and Pastors to face the adversary, knowing that we are victorious and able to do all things through the power works within us, leaving us void of fear, and organized via a sound mind, and temple that has been set aside to give him glory with our existence.  We are called not to stand for something, but to stand for Him!

Church, it’s time!  We know who’s behind this!  Now we must ask, Who will get in front of this?
