A response to our cultural upheaval

So much is happening in our social and political climate I felt some response was necessary. God help me as I try to relate this response in a way that honors the Lord. I don’t want to presume anything and yet I can’t help but presume everything.

We live in a time where children go into school, they walk right in the front door with guns and murder…

We live in a time where gender roles are so messed up that men are breast feeding in public…

We live in a time where men think they are women and women think they are men and children don’t think they are either…

We are living in times where man dishonors their bodies and truth is exchanged for lies and worship goes to anything and anyone except the One who is worthy…

You cannot legislate or regulate sin. Man has already tried and failed. The one answer that we have always had we have disregarded and thrown out. God has been dethroned and man has placed himself and his own lustful desires the highest throne of honor. The result is war, and struggle and discontentment and jealousy and rage – the fight that is in every part of our bodies.

We have pushed God out. This is why there are killings and brokenness and unfaithfulness and failed marriages and rebellion and a over-medicated men, women and yes, children. Wars, power struggles, authority issues, hunger, overfilled prisons and the like.

In the book of James, he uses the words, adulterers or an adulteress, which means that a person is actually committing adultery, in the act! An adulterer is always an adulterer until he starts to be faithful. 2 Chron. 7:14 sheds some light on where we, the church, should have already gone to set things right…

 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Let that sink in, IF! My people, talking to God’s people, those who are called by the name of God and RESPONDED to this call by following God and His ways, will humble themselves. Relinquish control of the throne that you sit on and return power back to the One who is truly King and there by turning away from our plans, our ways, our desires and evil that we spend our time on, all that God calls sin. Then and only then do we have the assurance that God hears our prayers from heaven because we have assumed a posture of humility as we trust and obey God.

Church…what are YOU waiting for?.
