“I have been asked to step down. To step down from sharing the rhetoric of this world’s happenings. To remove the world’s language from my mouth. To stop spreading the damage. To stop poking the wound. Who you ask would make this kind of request of me? My Heavenly Father, that’s who. And I am prepared to listen.” Corrie Vallance
When do we become removed from thinking that sharing any of this world’s situations will help spread truth about our Heavenly Father and who He is and what Christ has done for us? When we are removed from understanding that this is not the Truth God brought to the world. No matter what side of the fence we are standing on, the one and only truth that is known to man cannot be denied by any man. Therefore is stands to reason that there is no sense is screaming it from a soapbox.
God has promised to write the laws of His ways upon our hearts through the New Covenant. And this way would be the Truth and the Light. He also taught that no man could be in the truth and in the flesh at the same time.
Hebrews 8: 10
This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
This virus and race war along with all the rhetoric and language it has brought has become a way that has distracted our minds and our vision from where God wants them. It has become an anti-christ whereas it has brought more of our attention to itself than to God. We cannot conform to this world and also be in Him, it is impossible for one man to serve two masters. The mind is the governing piece of one’s body. Where the mind goes, so shall follow the body.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
We must stand divided as the “other” in the world, standing in our Right to be set apart, Holy and Blameless. If we are sharing in the language that is not of God and His ways, we are simply missing the mark and will elongate our paths to the peace that awaits us.
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
The Lord gave us tools to make our ways easier and promised to carry our burdens for us. But we have not been faithful to walking with Him alone in the Garden. We have complicated the relationship. We have set ourselves up for failure after failure because we refuse to leave those things which burden us behind us. We continually pick up the heaviness of our past and try to rectify it for our future. Trying to put to good use those things which have failed us in the past. God tells His people time and time again to leave the past where it lies and push forward to the things that come. And while we understand that we have been delivered and set apart, we do not walk in that place. We continue to go back for the opinion of our Adamic Nature to somehow validate the Truth we now know in the Spirit. Our Deliverance from this Bondage is clearly stated in Hebrews, Chapter 8,
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it as through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
The problems in our lives can ALWAYS be rectified by looking to Him for wisdom. The answer is always on our hearts and in our minds. We do not need counsel from our brethren to give us affirmation of the laws that God so clearly wrote onto the hearts of all man as a Promise to always be with them. We must confide in Jesus, our Advocate, talking directly to Him asking Him for the answers we need. And then by Faith, we use the deciphering minds He bestows through the transformation we receive as we learn and grow in Him. He is the way, the only way.
We are not bound to this world. We are not bound to what we think this world holds for us. We are also not bound to our visions of how this world is supposed to operate. And most of the time, when we compare the way the world operates and the way the Lord operates, they lie completely opposite of one another.
It is time we start leaning on the Staff of Righteousness! Count on God to give us the answers that we seek. Use our sound minds and decipher the things around us. The only way to get good at something is to practice it over and over again. So let us stand in our quiet place with God often, seeking Him for Guidance and Support through our Dilemmas!
“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
He is our Strength! Our Joy! Our Praise! Our Faith and Our Stronghold! Relying on Him for all of our needs is what allows us to be wrought with Him. Let us stand before Him Holy and Blameless, to be set apart and be lifted up to be seated at the right hand of God. For the day has come where we will not be reckoned by one another but by Christ’s living hand on our heads. Let us lead one another to the Living Water and the Bread of Life, which is Jesus himself! The veil was torn away so that we may enter without shame and approach the Holy Throne ourselves. No priest or teacher must speak for us, we must speak for ourselves.
So while we get angered by the insanity we see happening in the world around us today, let us remind one another that this is not our world and we have been set apart from it. That we must show our Love for God in all the things that we do and that getting caught up in the Political Rhetoric of this world will only bring more brash emotions and not guide people to God’s light at all. We must not allow the Enemy to raise us up for His army. We are already purchased by our Heavenly Father and we will not be separated or moved to support the dying language of this world.
So encourage one another to seek His face! Encourage one another in Prayer. Seek God First and all other things shall be added to us, correct? So, let us stop looking at the world and start looking within. It is all there as God Promised.
