th weapons of our warfare arent carnal…but satan’s are

th Lord recently revealed to me that all th political discourse among His ppl, all th wonderings and opinions and whatnot are evidence of temptation…we are bein tempted to operate in this world and to have our say and have our way, against what God say about this world…that we are strangers in a strange land…that we are citizens of heaven and belong to th Kingdom of God in Christ and have no more dealings in this world, according to the conversation of this world…that in fact, we are not our own but are bought with a high price and belong to Christ alone…

in fact everything that makes us act, talk or think other than how God has judged somethin, is temptation…

and we are tempted –satan tryna get us in th political fight, tryna get us involved in th pinching and eye-poking that goes on when adam has a dog in that fight and spends his time tryna convince everyone one else why his dog is th best…

temptation pokes and prods us in our not yet dead parts…th stuff we still think has value, tho God declared it dead and dust…scholarship, information, personal and civil rights, and on and on…we simply refuse to acknowledge that its death and destruction…

its all temptation…th weapons of our warfare are not carnal…but satan’s are…he pokes and prods us lookin fa a way in…lookin fa a foothold…politics is a whole slew of ammo bc it affects everyone on every level here in this realm…but politics is religion in action…an we arent about religion…we are in Christ…securely settled in th Kingdom of God…seated wit Christ in heavenly places…He is from above, not from beneath, and so are we…born of th Spirit of God we are now from above…not from beneath…so why do we wallow about in the filth of this world where we are strangers, and become so embroiled in its dealings that only lead to death…

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:  But I have prayed for you, that your faith fail not: and when you are converted, strengthen your brethren. Luke 22:31 -32

death reigned from adam until moses…moses needed deliverance from the same pharaoh he stood against…yet something about moses declared a change in rulers, a change over from one kingdom to another…a sign of th times, so to speak…death reigned until moses bc God sent moses, God raised up moses, God saved moses and God was with moses…and God made moses’ mouth…moses’ conversation wasnt th world’s conversation…

death reigned…all the civilazations built, all th towers, the cement and straw, th food, th tools, th languages, the gods named and worshipped…all death…according to God, anyway…not so much according to His ppl…we still like this stuff…we still got a dog in th fight…we still wanna change th world…

Jesus said, no man comes to me except the Father draw him….

but we dont agree…and we prove it everytime we talk about  bringin ppl to Christ by voting fa ppl who call theyself christian…we can bring ppl to Christ by makin ourself a slave to their flesh, which means INSTEAD of bein slaves of righteousness…we can bring ppl to Christ by pointing out what is sin, but calling it something else, like prejudice, or some other modern catchword…and we can continue to whine about ppl who are far from Christ not being Christlike..INSTEAD of recognizing that they are far from Christ and therefore CANT bear good fruit and be Christlike…

in th same time, as long as we have our conversation in this world, we also are not Christlike…and fa some reason, that doesnt bother us at all…

th strange thang to me, is that all of this has come to be some measure of Christlikeness in itself…as tho we can have th same conversation as th world, and consider ourself Christlike, as tho Christ rubs off on whatever we put our mouth or hands to…even tho, according to God,  theres no communion between Christ and belial…

how is it that we have come to embrace temptation as an acceptable way of life in this foreign land, instead of standing against this strange world and its wickedness and letting it hate us th way it hates Jesus Christ…
