Now faith means putting our full confidence in the things we hope for, it means being certain of things we cannot see. It was this kind of faith that won their reputation for the saints of old. And it is after all only by faith that our minds accept as fact that the whole scheme of time and space was created by God’s command—that the world which we can see has come into being through principles which are invisible. Hebrews 11:1-3 JBPhillips
How do we receive such faith? It is a ‘gift’ from God Himself. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. It comes from the Word (rhema-revelation) being placed in our hearts. We “know” because of the most intimate touch of God on our heart and soul. This ‘faith’ and new hope set our desires on a new ‘home’ who’s “foundations of which God Himself is both architect and builder”. The Kingdom of which we’ve become new citizens — changes our allegiance as we now have a new ‘King’ and His name is Jesus.
Now when the whole world is screaming at everyone which ‘team’ / country / and charismatic leader .. to follow. The ‘forces’ in spiritual realms are working intensely to divide everything they can, especially down to the parent and child. When God is desiring a restoration of the family.
He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance], so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse [of complete destruction]. Malachi 4:6AMP
Can you ‘see’ the strategies of the ‘unseen’ the war yet? The ‘war’ against the Truth has gone to insanity. Literally. Now mental illness is something to be defended and glorified as good, and even needed! What is going on?! But we’ve already been told.
Because of this God will send upon them a misleading influence, [an activity of error and deception] so they will believe the lie, in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe the truth [about their sin, and the need for salvation through Christ], but instead took pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12AMP
Which ‘team’ am I on? Team Jesus. Lead by the most victorious coach in the universe …the Holy Spirit. Now I look for others who are also on that ‘team’. Citizens of the Kingdom. We who know our need of salvation through Jesus … are called to reach out to others. To snatch people from falling into the abyss before they pass through the gates of hell. The enemy has worked hard to dismiss this truth of the place that is widely talked about in the scriptures of eternal torment and separation from God. Yet God designed us to be with Him, by placing His ‘breath’ within us. Because of His unfathomable love we were given a ‘will’ and choice to make our own decisions, whether to accept God’s offer of …love …and His Son’s payment for our debt of sin.
I am not swayed by all the cycling of never ending ‘election’ hoopla. My hope and focus is on another Leader and Country, one who has been prepared for me specifically.
In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you. John 14:2AMP
All those who want our support in an political election — can they meet the smallest qualifications of the lowest position within the Body of Christ? (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus) So many claim His name and say they ‘know’ Him when these Truths are blatantly staring them in the face…
On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:22-23
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” Matthew 6:24
If the leader doesn’t truly ‘serve the Lord’ who exactly are they serving?
I’ll stick with Team Jesus.
Who’s team are you on?
