Anybody can tear something down. But can you build something up? Anyone can be angry. But can you withstand the pressure of persecution like JESUS did? At times he was quiet. Others times he responded with Words that no one could dispute.
JESUS lived under a Roman occupation. The disciples and others thought that he came to overthrow the Roman government. But what JESUS was more concerned with and focused on is overthrowing the evil government that ruled over the minds and spirits of men.
Acts 1:6 So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?” 7 He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Luke 4:18 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, 19 and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.”
Is God concerned with the evil that governments and bad people do? Yes he is. But what he has shown us is that we cannot cast out evil with evil. For what more good are you JESUS said. If you love those who love you and hate those who hate you.
You are not very strong. You are just as bad as your enemies. This is what we see in the streets. People who are just as bad as their enemies.
They are taking the easy way out. Their ancestors faced the same or similar forces far worst in power and magnitude. They handled it just the opposite.
JESUS the LORD OF HEAVEN ‘S ARMY could of used force to expel the Romans and to establish his Kingdom on the Earth. But what he chose to do is lower himself and to sacrifice with mankind.
He chose to give something up. He gave a lot up. He was not too good to be called names and lied on. If it meant that his long term goal of mankind being restored back to God and free from the oppression of the devil would be accomplished.
Is your enemy as strong as the Romans?
You have snatched victory out from your own hands. Who told you to jump to conclusions? Why are you so impulsive? You give up your own power and victory before you can taste it.
The LORD OF HEAVENS ARMY told Peter not to fight the Romans. He said if I wanted to I could call a Legion of Angels down here right now and lay waste to this area and my enemies.
But he chose not to fight in the flesh but in the Spirit. It is easy to pick up a sword like Peter did and try to cut someones head off and to miss and cut his ear off. That JESUS picked up and healed.
But instead can you be a man or a woman and lay your life down in resistance and at the same time stand up , fight back and be powerful. You are not showing strength by burning something down in a free country. Where you can vote and build your families.
You can educate yourself and each other. But you choose not too in many cases. But you can pick up a brick and rob stores in your Civil defiance. That is not showing strength but instead it is showing weakness.
It is rebellion against the system that is there to free you. Do you not see your error?
The strength is going through the process of justice and fighting with the liberty that we have been giving in CHRIST and in America. But you stoop so low only to see what you do have.
You miss what you do have. Or it is too hard for you to consider as an option when you can just use violence for a cheap thrill.
God says the weapons of our warfare not carnal. Or in the flesh. But they are mighty through God through the pulling down of strong holds. Our power is in praying and fasting.
Asking God to help us to fight the evil. We need Wisdom, Revelation, Knowledge Power, and Love. That will win our freedom.
This is how we get the victory. By waging war on our selves and and Crucifying our flesh. Not fighting a building
