Open Letter to the Body of Christ
Listen, scrolling through my FB feed what disturbs me more than anything else, and there's plenty that's disturbing, is the hopelessness I'm seeing from those that are Christians. I'm here for the anger (without sin). I'm here for the outrage. I'm here for the righteous indignation. All of that is necessary, but what I can't deal with is the hopelessness. The “I don't know what to do.” We have seen God move on our behalf time and time again, this isn’t any different; it’s just bigger, but NOT bigger than Him! If this is not a wake-up call to the ENTIRE Body of Christ, then NOTHING will be. Now is the time for the POWER and AUTHORITY of Jesus Christ to manifest itself in the earth. People are asking where God is. What is He doing? I believe with everything in me, God is saying where is My church? What are YOU doing about this? We have God's unlimited power backing us, but it takes OBEDIENCE to activate it. Could it be that we know we are not in the right position with God to tap into the spiritual power and authority given? This battle doesn't belong to us, it belongs to the LORD! But we have a part to do. We spend all this time getting dressed up, hooping and hollering, running around and shouting but when our country turns into a war zone right before our very eyes, WE HAVE NO POWER!!! I know this hurts and I know it makes you angry, as injustice should, but EVERY church across America regardless of ethnicity or denomination should be standing in the gap as a congregation for their cities in prayer and fasting. If your church is not addressing this issue then that is a BIG PROBLEM! We should be seeking God for divine strategy about what He wants us to do and THEN we should GO OUT AND DO IT!!!! I guarantee you it won’t be a strategy that involves taking more lives! Are we heartbroken enough to repent and turn back to God? Are we heartbroken enough to see that love is the only answer to hate? Are we heartbroken enough to see that our petty differences are moot when people are dying in the streets left and right! Make no mistake about it; this battle isn’t against flesh and blood. Look at the overall picture. If an enemy of America wanted to attack right now, it would be good strategy because we are so divided. A house divided against itself cannot stand. No more should I see weak words and hopelessness from believers as I scroll down my timeline. I should see words spoken with authority and wisdom that are backed up by the Word of God. Because NOTHING can stand against God’s Word.
I should see Kingdom men saying how they are anointing their wives and children and praying over them before they leave the house. They know that the God they serve will protect them and those they love. They are covering them in prayer. There are legions of angels at your disposal. DIVINE PROTECTION is a real thing! I have seen it. I have experienced it. Psalm 91:7 says, “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee.” I don’t understand, did we just forget about the God we served. Instead, we need to see this in the spirit. This chaos requires US, the believers, to turn BACK TO GOD!!!! You fight power with power not violence with violence. You cannot speak life to yourself or your family when all that’s coming out of your mouth is death. WATCH YOUR WORDS!!! Do not make yourself a victim THROUGH YOUR WORDS! Either we believe in the God we say we serve or we don’t. We can’t be double minded. The world is dying all around us. Please understand reacting emotionally is not the answer. The evils of the world are inciting a race war and that will usher in martial law and then EVERYBODY will be crying out for justice. It won’t be a black/white thing. THEN it will be a people thing. DIVISION IS NEVER THE ANSWER – NEVER!!!! We may live in different communities and experience different things, but we all still live in this ONE country. So we ALL need to partake in fixing it. It’s not enough of any one group to make a difference, so we have to stand together in LOVE to conquer hate. (P.S. This is a TOTALLY separate issue than the black community coming together FINALLY to take care of their own – that’s ECONOMICS, that’s another post.)
