Jan4SunJanuary 4, 20152015 Revolution – Changing the Culture(ONE▪Soul@aTime)“The Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. [Mt 11:12]”
Revolution: “The usually violent attempt by many people to end the rule of one government and start a new one; a sudden, extreme, or complete change in the way people live, work, etc. A fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something: a change of paradigm (meaning: a change of habit, pattern, or standard).”
Ephesians 6:12 says, “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.” We are in a spiritual battle that does not end until the devil is finally cast into the lake of fire for all eternity. From one generation to the next the Church has to (IT MUST) awaken to seize the moment we were recreated for in Christ Jesus. Right now the devil is loosed but on a leash, he can only go as far as the Lord our God will permit him. The Holy Spirit is the Restraint (see II Thess. 2:3-7) that limits the demonic activity in the world today. God has given the Church the Power and Authority through the Holy Spirit as well as Angelic assistance to override the adversary’s plan to kill, steal, and destroy souls.
IF the Church does not awaken from slumber many souls will perish unnecessarily as a result. We must seize this moment with every Believer responding to the call of Joel chapters 1-3. We must “SEE” the state and condition of the Church as well as this world and call upon the Name of Jesus and He will heal, deliver, restore, save, and leave a blessing upon this generation. As we cry out to Jehovah Sabaoth, Lord of hosts (Lord of Heavens Army), He will hear and change will come. As bad as things are, the Church is still God’s answer to make the difference. Our joy, excitement, peace and passion find their roots in fulfilling the will of Jesus to turn things around for the glory of the Father.
When I speak about Revolution - it is against the spiritual powers of this present darkness that holds the souls of humanity captive that need to be resisted and overthrown by the AUTHORITY of the Name of JESUS! It is about changing the mindset and the thoughts of a generation to “SEE” Jesus (see Heb. 2:9; 12:2). 2015 is about taking new territory (new souls) as well as reclaiming what has been stolen (souls, lost fortunes) with a new heart, new fervor, new vision for the glory of God.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds…” [II Cor. 10:4 Amp.]
