Great Politician or Real Church?

Is the real need of this nation a great politician or a real church? Politicians would hardly ever get a mention in the news media if the church was being and doing everything Jesus was and did when He was on earth. One of the major factors that got Jesus crucified was that He was getting more press than Caesar.  People were following and clamoring after Jesus because of His acts which so effectively represented the Father. When Jesus confronted and contradicted darkness through redemptive acts it got the nation’s attention. After consistently revealing the Father in this manner, there was a snowballing effort to make Jesus king. Simply put, Jesus was more representative of life and productivity than was Caesar with all his financial resources and all his millions of citizens. Needs were met and problems solved that Caesar had no capacity for.


Month of Revealing

November will be the month of revealing. The things that are hidden have not all been brought to light yet. There is more to come. The news will be worth watching over the next four days. Lies will fall apart like a crack in the ice. The spiderweb effect will spread and gain momentum until they have nothing to hold them together. We will keep our minds fixed on God’s eternal Word and purposes and He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness. Corruption has an expiration date.
“Now comfort me so I can live, really live; your revelation is the tune I dance to. Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds; they tried to sell me a bill of goods, but I kept my mind fixed on your counsel.” (Ps.119:77-78, Msg)
