TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Have you wondered why I said it is for freedom’s sake that I give you freedom? Because without freedom, there can be no love. Likewise, freedom without love is useless. Give love and bring freedom to the captives. Do it for freedom’s sake.
THE NEW NORMAL
Normal church and normal Christianity are over. They don’t work in this present day when offense and drama rule in the public arena. What’s real is Christianity is supposed to be a verb.
Did you hear that? The love of God is supposed to be a verb. You and I are to be a people of action bringing heaven to earth the lost and hurting. It’s your assignment to see the results of heaven in people’s lives. Amen.
You need to be in alignment for that assignment. I know I am. I know my assignment is to bring freedom to the captives of sexual slavery, poverty, religion, sin and death. Just like that, you need to be a mission-minded person who is all about carrying the presence of our living God into every single storm of life – yours and those you come in contact with.
You and I are not afraid or intimidated by the things this world brings. We are much more aware of the presence and promises of God than we are of the birth pains you and I are experiencing as we get closer to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ!
For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars … Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. – Matthew 24:5-7
Make no mistake, the birth pains have already started. My friends, it’s on! Because the time is so short, there is no room for drama or offense. There is only time to extend the freedom of salvation to those perishing. Like I said, normal church is over. Make love a verb. Be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus today. It’s the new normal.
