I want to address how many of us christians.. Especially the older generation have turned away from what it means to go and seek the lost and what it means to make Disciples. Yes, I am included in this because the Holy Spirit had brought to my attention and hi-lighted a few of my thoughts. The Lord is indeed forever transforming and renewing my thinking daily, when I allow him to.
I desire to share The Cure to as many young people that cross my path. I believe that infectious, demonic diseases, plagued mindsets and bondages have captured a lot of young people today as well as older. I personally, at a few points in my life had been attacked and if it were not for the Powerful Blood transfusion of Jesus and the mature fed prayer warriors that Abba placed in my path and in my life, I would still be fighting those demonic diseases today.
Let’s be honest though, it is a whole lot easier to captivate the mind of a youth who is open to everything than a “set in thy way, traditional believing adult”, wouldn’t you agree?.
That is why the devil goes after the youth. He has an agenda set and he is sticking to it because he “Thinks” it’s working. But, believe me when I say the Power of God is in Effect, even if we don’t always see the Affects.
So let’s add some scripture to the mix, to help you get a better understanding of what is spiritually going on today.
2 Timothy 3:2-7 TPT
“People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God. They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power.”
So this passage, written by Timothy thoroughly explains what we see today in our world. This is clearly how we know the Bible is truth. It states here in plain text. This is a result of the “Fall of Man”.
But, there is a Cure. All is not Lost for these people. But it would take an intentional posture of surrendering and acceptance of the blindness and wrongdoing in the sight of the Lord.
While this is going on.. See it’s like a constant battle..God is still in the background raising up his children in his glorious power.. In a way.. It’s like ranking up.
Acts 2:17-21 ER
‘God says: In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will have special dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit on my servants, men and women, and they will prophesy. I will work wonders in the sky above. I will cause miraculous signs on the earth below. There will be blood, fire, and thick smoke. The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon will be as red as blood. Then the great and glorious day of the Lord will come. And everyone who trusts
in the Lord will be saved.’
Even tho God is in the background doing his thing, we who are Holy Spirit filled need to gear up, put our confidence in Yeshua and get out there and relentlessly spread The Cure. The devil is busy and he is not retracting in his position. He has a set agenda and will stop at nothing at achieve it.
I do not say all this to boast (truthfully, I’m struggling to be bold enough) in triumph of sharing The Cure, but rather in realizing that I and other believers have The greatest anecdote to people’s sufferings, people’s lost paths,etc, so we need to be deligent and do this service unto our Lord who rescued us.
Why are We as a body, sitting on The Cure to set people free?! Why are we not in a sense of urgency? Have we no compassion for the Lost? Did we forget how desperately we needed A cure at one point of time. Have we forgotten how we still must Apply The Cure daily?! Why have we laxed?! Why have we as a body become so distracted by the Events in church? Jesus is like, Our daily ointment. We go through life events daily, we get bruised, scarred and hit on all sides.. Jesus, our ointment is what prepares us for the daily attacks we will face. In the word of God, ointments were used cosmetically (Ruth being prepared for the King), funerals/burial( the woman who broke the alabaster jar filled with expensive fragrance over Jesus’s feet, in preparation for his death), for medicinal purposes and rituals.
Let’s get back to our original command..To go out and make Disciples. However you flow, in whatever gifting.. Apply your ointment, Apply The Cure and Share The Cure to this sickly and dying world,I guarantee in your presentation, someone will be desperate enough to grab ahold of it and Never..Let…Go.
Matthew 28:19-20 New International Version (NIV)
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.“
