Light, Dark and Opposition

LightAndDarkAs long as there is a kingdom of darkness and a Kingdom of Light there will be opposition. We must understand that the kingdom of darkness does not simply exist but it is forcefully moving against all that it hates with the intent to dismantle all that does not agree with it. But we have an unshakeable Kingdom! (Heb.12:28) 


Unshakeable Kingdom

God promises to shake everything that can be shaken. It is His solemn word and wallcastlesomething that He will not do half-heartedly. We have an unshakeable Kingdom (Heb.12:28) because we have an unchanging Person, Jesus (Heb.13:8). The religious system and practices of the church are being shaken as well as the systems of this world. The kingdom cannot be shaken. The authority and power of God to act sovereignly through His people cannot be shaken. His truths and redemptive government that releases the captive cannot be shaken. But the systems of misbelief and the systems that sustain the agendas of men are most definitely being shaken.

Encouraged to Press Forward

As the people of God assemble today may they be encouraged by the examples of StartRacefaith they have in the Word of God of those who hoped in the promises of the Almighty and pressed forward in patient endurance looking unto the Author and Finisher of our faith. “Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won’t let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us.” (Heb.12:1, CEV)


Fixing Our Eyes on Jesus

As the people of God assemble today may they fix their eyes on Jesus who endured the cross, despised the shame and is now set down at the right hand of the throne of God as the Victorious Lamb. May they know that Jesus rose from the dead because there was more to come.  “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  2 FIXING OUR EYES ON JESUS, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  (Heb.12:1-2, NAU)


God Enables and Motivates

pathway2

 

The only place your gift (or hope or dream God has put in you) will do no good is under the ashes of hurts, self indulgence and neglected vows. If there is anyone not wanting that gift stirred, it is not God. God enables (1Tim.1:12) and motivates (Rom.15:13;Heb.12:2-3). No pleasure nor morbid sense of humor can make Him call someone, give gifts to them and then turn around and pummel their dreams into powder.
