Know What Spirit You Are Of

God has put on my heart something that needs to be said to the church.

There has been a lot of “christian” hate going around. Too many christians” have been praying and wishing for evil to happen to others especially to our leaders.

Too many “christians” praying for the removal of certain leaders and and the establishment of certain others in their place. Too many “christians” putting their trust in a person, instead of God, to make things great again.

This is not only breaking God’s heart, it is also making him very angry! We have forgotten what spirit we are of. Jesus didn’t come to destroy people’s lives, but to save them (Luke 9:56).

God is commanding us to stop praying that He would remove people from office, people that He has established in office for all authority is established by God (1 Peter 2:13-14) and asking Him to establish another person in their place.

Doing this is a slap in God’s face. Its saying that we don’t trust His judgment in who He places in authority. Its imposing our will over His will.

Instead, we are to pray for those God has established in authority, whether we like them or not. Pray to God to bring them to a place of repentance before Him, for them to come to salvation, for God to give them a wise and understanding heart so they can govern this land with wisdom, love, and compassion perand compassion.

God’s word tells us not to make their job a burden (Hebrews 13:17). Their job is hard enough. We do not know all the pressures they face everyday.
I’m by no means I’m justifying the wrong things they do, I just know that God can change the hardest heart.

God is commanding us to stop putting our trust in people and to put our trust in him alone. No human will ever be able to make our nation or any nation great again! Only God can do that!

Worshipping a leader (putting them on a pedestal) is just a great ascent as telling them down and praying evil on them. As this written you shall have no other God besides me (Exodus 20:2).

So where is God going with all this? He is telling us that when we pray against someone we’re want to see them fail, we’re slapping God in the face.
How can we say we love God whom we have never seen if we can’t love our brother, our neighbour, our fellow humans, whom we have seen (1 John 4:20)?

When we pray or speak against someone, we forget that Jesus died for that person too. He shed his blood for every one, not just for us. We cannot want God’s grace and mercy upon our lives and not want Him to have it on their lives. Remember the parable of the wicked servant (Matthew 8:21)?

They too are created in the image and likeness of God. Jesus loves them as much as He loves us.
Don’t be like the Scribes and Pharisees who went around thumbing their noses at others and looking down on them. But rather, be like Jesus who loved (loves) people to the very end.

He generally loved (loves) people and was (is) moved with compassion to the point they lay down his life for them.

We need to stop praying against people and asking that they be removed from their positions.
We must start praying for our enemies, doing good to those who miss treat us (Matthew 5:43-48).
We must bless and never curse(Romans 12:14).
It is also written that we should speak no evil of the ruler of our people (Exodus 22:28).

We have to stop putting our trust in human beings to make things better and put our trust in God alone.
We must start doing better – being better.
Jesus said that if our righteousness doesn’t exceed the righteousness of the scribes and pharisees, we will buy no means and get the Kingdom of God (Matthew 5:20).

I could go on and on, quoting scripture after scripture, but let’s hear the summary of the matter – the take away.

1.) Don’t pray against people.

2.) Jesus died for them too.

3.) Pray for your enemies.

4.) Bless and do not curse.

You cannot call yourself a Christian and then openly defy God’s word.

You cannot call yourself a Christian and then openly defy God’s word.

That makes you a child of the devil – for he comes to kill rob and destroy.

But our God came that they may have life to the full. (John 10:10).

Who’s son will you be?
