“If my people who are called by my name 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.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
Have we lost Truth? Or lost sight of what Truth is? We have lost sight of the prize. How? Because we put Him in a box while we search for momentary pleasures only to find nothing, we become spent. Restless every moment of our day’s. It’s become a battle that we lose every time we take it on. It’s our right thinking that tells us “You can win this”, “You have enough will power”. Pushing Christianity to the side for a moment. If we could do this on our own, then why is everything on this Earth not dealt with when we want it to be dealt with? There is a lot of fixing to do, in our government, schools, work places, etc. We have this drive in us that “we can fix this” over and over we dig ourselves deeper in debt, nationally and personally by not having self-control over our finances, over our lives. We take out loans that we cannot afford only to make the neighbor that we don’t like jealous over what we drive or what we live in. Let’s get real. Now, let us bring Christianity back into the picture; Life is a puzzle with a lot of questions and circumstances that we want answers to why it’s not happening in our time when we want it to happen, the problems that need to be resolved in our life. From personal experience from ministering at an AA clinic, a place where addictive lifestyles try to get help through the failing 12 steps that were originally Holy Spirit inspired by men of God who placed God in the center of it; Over time man has gotten a hold of it, taken away the Word of God that is sharper than any other two-edged Sword, which can cure the disease, addiction of a person’s life once and for all, and added their hopeless words, that has de sensitized the Word of God into a faltering program that will always fail, just to get more addicts which in turn, they, the company receives more money from the insurance companies. But remember, America has it all figured out. Or so we think.
There is power in poverty that breaks principalities, brings the authorities down to their knees. There is a brewing frustration in the ageless temptation to fight for control by manipulation.
The God of the kingdoms & God of creation, the God of the nations had sent this Revelation through the homeless Jesus, the Son; the poor will inherit the kingdom to come.
And where will we turn when the World falls apart & all of the treasures that we store in our barns won’t buy the kingdom of God.
And who will we praise when were praised all of our lives, man who build kingdoms, man who build fame, but Heaven does not know their names?
And what are we going to fear when all that remains is a God on the Throne with a child in His arms and love in His eyes and the sound of His heart cry.” – Jason Upton
