“We Fall Down We Get Up” The title of a song that describes the Christian experience. Unfortunately, it’s a common experience for a great many of us. Also unfortunately, my last few few blogs were written not led by Christ, but led by my previous persona.
I operated a blog called “One Free Press”. My owned and operated by my worldly self; on politics, politicians, and America’s culture. It was all things of the world, Satans kingdom. I got distracted, and was led back into writing of the world, not the Kingdom of Christ on this Blog, that I created to highlight the differences between the Early church, the early Christians, and today’s Church and believers.
My previous Blog was a political blog, critical of culture, leaders and a watchdog of government, and media. I was acting as a Free News Media, not conflicted by ownership, agenda, or following the pack.
By reverting back to my previous blog, I was not being vigilant and took the path of the world, leading me away from what I feel was my call to revival.
My previous blog is likely needed today, but the emphasis on Jesus and the return to the model of the new testament and the early church was my new mission.
So, I apologize. I have gone back to the cross of salvation through faith, asking Jesus to be my barrier to the world, Satans kingdom. If I offended anyone by my aggressive opinions, I regret it. My so called sabbatical is over.
I have got up and will continue forward with Christ as my barrier and I shall call with out ceasing on the Holy Spirit to keep me on the path of Gods agenda and his will, not my own. Thus I go forward joyfully, and unashamed of the gospel.
American culture, the politics, our multiple camps of leadership, our issues, and especially the hate, anger, and violence are all part of Satans Kingdom. Some aspects of America 101, were initiated by Godly filled men and women, some may still do so, yesterday and today.
As these people died or moved on under inertia or rely on their own intellect or forced by events or others, not the Holy Spirit, they no longer represent Gods will. If you cannot sense or know Gods will through prayer and/or while reading Jesus’s words and the New Testament, this must be an urgent need in all areas of your life.
If you feel God is silent, speak with other spirit filled Christians. This is a great impetus for the Revival of the ministry of the early Church. A church where sisters and brothers have frequent communion together to assist, comfort, and lift up each other.
We are in the world but not of the world. Our spiritual relationship with the world is to bring light into it. Let our light so shine. Of course we work, often have needed and honorable careers, eat, buy, and obey the laws of our respective nations. But we must keep forefront in our minds, we are strangers in a strange land.
The world operates under different rules than our homeland, the Kingdom of God. We must not be seduced in becoming a soldier, activist, watchdog, or servant unaware; of the world, Satans kingdom.
There are no gray areas, if it’s not currently empowered and continuously infused with the power of God, it’s likely the devil you serve, or will in time be snared into.
Including all the great issues and movements you so much support and believe in. You of course can be there bringing light but you also must always be walking and talking filled with the spirit of Christ.
If it diverges from Christ, regardless of how much you believe it’s the right path, or way things should be, you must decide who your master is and what your purpose is.
If you have lived comfortably in the world, and believe in Christ, go to church, your duplicity isn’t just error, but you have been trapped in the snare of the deceiver or he will eventually spring it.
You, me, all who proclaim Christ as our Lord, must daily or at times during the day, affirmatively decide who we choose to follow, and with clarity, without any duplicity or doubt, but in faith.
We must always be aware Satan has been the enemy of all people since Eden. With his/her and legions of demons, they have a single purpose of deceiving you or trapping you in his subtle, and often camouflaged snares. Once again, Choose this day who you will follow.
Satans greatest achievement is sewing doubt of his existence, presence, and the continuous war to destroy Gods creation.
God bless you, the Church of Christ, and may his and your spirit remain close.
