Full Of Hope
At the risk of sounding excited, (I really am excited and full of hope), I want to share with you the season we are in right now as sons and daughters of the Most High. Recently I have gone back and forth from “genuine concern about the darkness invading our nation” to “what an opportunity we find ourselves in”. We cannot forget what the scripture says about our warfare and we cannot forget that we are alive today at this season to make a difference in the earth. Remember what Isaiah said: Isaiah 60:1-5 “ Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms. Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures.”
There is darkness in the earth, but the light of Jesus Christ always overpowers and dispels darkness. This is the day to let your light shine; this is the day to be bold with the Word of God in our mouths; this is the day for transformers and reformers to arise. The banner of truth must be lifted high so there is a righteous standard to follow. In these days of tolerance and political correctness, the Truth, who is a person not a concept or precept, must be lifted up, for without the standard, there will be no measuring line, no path of life to follow.
In a reoccurring vision, I continue to see an ancient battle with soldiers on horses, waging war against forces of darkness. Their goal is to take the hill, the high place. The battle takes place in a valley at the base of the high place. The enemy targeted the standard bearer and struck him down. When he fell, the flag he was carrying fell into the mud. Without the standard, the soldiers were confused, not knowing who or what to follow. I saw the standard fall, so I ran to pick it up, raising it high for all to see. The direction of battle turned and the soldiers came together following the standard.
The standard: “a conspicuous object (as a banner) formerly carried at the top of a pole and used to mark a rallying point especially in battle or to serve as an emblem.” (Meeriam Webster online dictionary). Our rallying point is the Word of God and the standard is His righteousness. Political correctness does not have a standard or a rallying point.
It is defined as: “the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.” My response to this definition is: “Get over yourself.” Evidently America is wounded and expecting others to cater to those wounds. Yes, we need to be kind, but not at the expense of the standard of righteousness. It seems that the standard of the Word of God and His righteousness has been lost to the selfishness and arrogance of man’s opinion and rebellious lifestyle. When we operate out of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, seeing everything through soulish eyes, we turn our backs on the tree of Life where we could find rest for our soul, by living out of the spirit.
I, for one, am lifting up the banner of Truth, the Word of God, and never stepping off of the stable rock of Who He is. I’m not into political correctness. I’m in Him. I live, and move, and have my being in Him!
