TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Where ever you look and see chaos, chances are there is a prisoner of war there. As you move in like a hero to fight, you will see the victory that Jesus died to give you!
WHERE TO RUN
Few people have the compulsion to run into a burning building. Those who do, we call heroes.
God is looking for heroes, because, let’s face it, this earth is a burning building and people are going to hell every day. Meanwhile, we cower in the shadows (what if I get hurt?), ignore the screams (I just don’t know any non-Christians) or pass the buck (there are missionaries for that) on the mess that is this world and the fallen people in it.
But God isn’t afraid of this mess we’ve made for ourselves. Specifically, He’s not afraid of YOUR mess. He has already scaled the flames and saved you from chaos, destruction and death. Determine right now to run to Jesus with your messes instead of running away from Him in shame or fear.
When you no longer run from the Lord, but to Him with your mess, you eventually learn to not run from evil and the messes of this world. That’s where good overcomes evil and the church starts to take on hell with a water pistol!
Running into the messes of this world also means running into the messes of people. One of the church’s biggest mistakes has been to vilify the unsaved as wanton sinners who love darkness and hate light. This is not the truth! The Bible says God doesn’t want anyone to perish!
God sees the unsaved for what they are – prisoners of war. They are POWs in the cosmic battle of Good vs. Evil, Jesus vs. Satan, Heaven vs. hell. We don’t leave POWs to die in chains. We plan and execute a search and rescue mission to free them!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SET ASIDE FEAR AND EXCUSES. BE A HERO! SEARCH OUT A POW AND BEGIN YOUR PLAN TO FREE THEM FROM THE DEVIL’S CHAINS.
