Love Your Neighbour as Yourself.
We are being called to break off all prejudices and preferences.
Our neighbour may be the most opposite or dislikable person we could think of but until we can love them with a Good Samaritan love we will not be bold or have influence on any who Jesus’ heart breaks for.
Marginalised people and nations who are in crisis are right where Jesus is sending His armies of angels and where He is calling us to speak out for and battle for.
This is a time to dismantle individual, generational, governmental prejudice and not just protest but to go bravely and serve for righteousness alongside Jesus.
He comes into the most broken places of the world amongst the displaced people.
He relies on us as His body to challenge the works of the enemy demonising the world into not caring.
Hatred will grow in nations if it is not challenged.
We have been offered ‘love’ it is freely given. We have a duty to also give love freely to our neighbours.
Operating in all 9 of the fruits of the Spirit and countering the spiritual battle in these extreme times. When we reach out with loving kindness and Samaritan love.
Satan’s aim is civil and even world war to displace man further.
Jesus offers a resolve by reaching to the root of the problem which is in spiritual warfare.
We need to fight where the bible tells us with the power of principalities and the enemy’s schemes not with men in nations.
Jesus has given us all authority to cast out demons.
Satan is not omnipresent as God is so it is the enemy’s army of demons that are wreaking havoc in the world influencing leaders towards hatred not love.
Whenever we see another human, especially the marginalised we must transform their face to that of Jesus and remember His own words.
‘Don’t you know? When you refused to help one of the least important among these my little ones, my true brothers and sisters, you refused to help and honour me.’
It is time to reform.
Our battle is with the myriads of demonic thoughts sown within the world. Ours is to listen carefully and discern whose voice is holding forth. To boldly speak out in Holy disagreement.
Confrontation from the platform of the Good Samaritan love.
To stand apart from the world and become the people with the authority that Jesus has bestowed upon us.
Righteous action and powerful prayer will bring about the transformation that no political party or government can do.
The Ekklesia has been given the mandate
The illustration shows an angel’s protection.
As Christians we believe in the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit but think little upon the unseen spiritual realm around us and within.
God sends His angels into situations. Satan invades with the fallen, rebellious, demonic spirits.
Our prayers make a difference.
Three scriptures that come to mind:
“And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction.”Matthew 10:1 ESV
“Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage.”Ephesians 6:12 TPT
“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place.“For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.”Jeremiah 7:3, 5-7 ESV
