Summary: Everyone keeps saying and we keep hearing over and over the phrase, “this is the new normal!” There is an old saying, “if it walks, talks and acts like a duck...it’s a duck!” What we are witnessing is not the new normal, what we are witnessing is the devil getting all of his ducks in a row!
As we look around the world in the day and age in which we live, we find ourselves questioning everything we’re told. The truth is we have never had more access to information, but have never been more weary of the information we are being told as truth.
The go to response for knowledge and truth is, “ask siri or ask your phone!” While I’ll admit having the ability to find out things and gain knowledge at your fingertips in a few seconds is amazing.
We find ourselves wondering more and more if all the information we obtain is actually truth, or the ulterior motive of the alternative of what we’ve always known as truth and what is Good!
One might always say anyone given the choice, can make the distinction between good and evil! In the Information Age we live in, how can one be so sure?
Ephesians 6:12 Living Bible (TLB)
12 For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.
Everyone keeps saying and we keep hearing over and over the phrase, “this is the new normal!”
There is an old saying, “if it walks, talks and acts like a duck...it’s a duck!” What we are witnessing is not the new normal, what we are witnessing is the devil getting all of his ducks in a row!
To trust or not to trust, that is the question, the decision made between those two choices, is what either gives you peace of mind which passes all understanding, or makes you worry, from worry to worry!
Worry is another word for fear! Fear is the opposite of Faith! Now more than any other time in history Christians need to rise up and stand together in faith and start using and trusting in their God given measure of Faith!
If your faith is in the ability of God there is no need to worry!
If your faith is in your own ability, or the ability of Government and world leaders, well....that’s why we are witnessing what is being represented as fear. But is really a divisive war being played out for all flesh, by the principalities of darkness, right before our very eyes!
Millions of people and some of them are Christians, have become willing participants of what’s going on with the accusers agenda and aren’t even aware of it!
On the other hand, millions of people are witnessing the same thing and most of them are Christians and are sitting on their hands on the sidelines, doing nothing!
The time has come to become a proactive partner in Faith with God, rather than the reactive stance of fear to what is going on around us, both seen and unseen in the heavenly’s!
Romans 8:1-4 MSG
1-2 With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
3-4 God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that.
The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.
Far to many people live like their still waiting for Jesus to obtain victory, rather than coming from the position of power and the realization He already has obtained Absolute Victory!
“The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.”
TBS.(the Bible says) in Mark 6:34 NKJ
34. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
I hear you, I hear what your saying, but what about the “what ifs”? You know, what if this and that might happen tomorrow?
What about the what ifs? Who cares about the what if’s!
