We are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus as born-again believers (Eph 2:6). This is our privilege. Whether we recognise this or believe this is a different matter. There are many truths but truth does not become fact till we believe and receive that truth. Jesus came as the Truth but few believed in Him. In fact they crucified the Truth. Why did they do this? They did this because their own version of truth did not accord with His Truth. We are guilty of doing the same thing today when we reject the Truth. The truth is that we are seated in heavenly places in Christ but we behave as if we don’t. Why this discrepancy?
The truth has been compromised by our earthly masters. Many have sort to understand spiritual truths through their own fallen intellects. This is more understandable for earthlings. In this process, we have lost the truth and exchanged it for lies. This is why we see so many divisions in the body of Christ. We need to come back to the original purpose and mission of the church. The church is on earth to rule and reign. We have instead given our authority over to the evil one who has infiltrated the church. The church now is asleep, but sleeping with the devil. How did we get here?
This has been the story from the beginning. Truth has always been challenged and the weak have given into the challenge and compromised the truth. It is easier to compromise than stand firm. We see this being acted out in society. The world is degenerating into the way it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah but the church sits and watches. How long will this go on for? It will go on for as long as the church does not wake up and take action. We need to stand on what God has said and die for it. Until we are prepared to do this, we risk going down to hell with the devil. His destiny is assured and he is determined to take as many as possible with him. It is time to arise and defeat the enemy in our territory through fasting and prayer and action. Pray that many will heed the call to action in these troubled times.
