Repairers of the Breach
Commissioned to GO and RECRUIT Soldiers
"And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou salt be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in." [Is. 58:12]
For those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior we have been enlisted in the Army of the Living God to GO and BUILD the old waste places. To build or restore means that construction or development of new homes (lives – souls – humanity) are in progress once again in the waste places. Waste places are dead areas, lifeless areas, undeveloped areas (void of life, mobility, or fertility), forgotten or rejected areas. We are to cultivate the dry and barren land (waste places) and prepare it for development. We are to raise the foundations: to raise the foundation means to elevate or raise the bar in laying the cement or concrete of Truth and Righteousness as a solid foundation; to bring to the forefront biblical, sound truth that our forefathers lived by. We are to repair the breach: to repair is to make new, to bring back to its original intent, to repair what was broken or cut off, make straight the path once again for those that can’t recognize or see the path.
Evangelism is not just a side ministry, not just a weekend ministry, not just a department to fulfill a monthly quota -- it is the command of the Lord according to His Word, His Gospel (aka Good News) where He said, GO! Here in this passage Jesus spoke to His disciples back then and He’s speaking to us now – GO! “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost (aka Holy Spirit). Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Mt. 28:19-20]
This is a commandment from the Lord for every believer to GO, it is our lifestyle in this Christian faith. Evangelism is the heartbeat of God the Father released through His Son, Jesus. that we will GO and share the Gospel which is the Good News that they would all turn from their wicked ways and be reconciled with the Lord. For this lost generation (inclusive of all ages) may experience His life which is more abundant, bearing the attributes of the Holy Spirit which is: love, joy, peace, kindness, patience, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, and self-control. The Father has called us to witness His mercy, His love, His power and salvation to all mankind.
If there is no preacher, how will they know? If there is no witness, how can they believe? We are God's mouth-piece, we are His hands and feet to declare that His Kingdom is at hand. We are the light-bearers of His righteousness and a terror to darkness. Oh, how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. We have been called and summoned to fulfill the great commission by winning a generation for Jesus and changing the world through the power of the Holy Ghost.
