With our lives moving so fast today, it’s really hard to tell whether God is working in our lives or whether our connections and influence may be at work? How can you tell when God is working in your life?
The short and disappointing answer many times is this, you can’t. That is, you can’t tell at the time. When we walk with God and simply live life, the things that happen around us are always the results of decisions we make. If we make a bad decision, bad things happen. If we make a good decision, good things happen. The real question begins when good things happen even though we made a bad decision, or bad things happen even though we made a good decision. How can these results be explained? Sometimes the hand of God doesn’t become visible until later. Maybe even years later.
If we are always trying to take the easy way out of problems, we may completely miss the first rule for Radical Christians, which is: Our God is powerful and lives within us, His Word is also powerful that lives within us. The easy way is the logical and reasonable way that makes the most sense according to the flesh. However, the clues that we are able to see and hear are never complete. The clues that we can get by the flesh are never able to reveal the motives of the heart concerning every party involved. The clues of the flesh are never able to reveal spiritual causes that may be lurking behind any situation we face.
During the month of January, the real focus of the majority of the posts was to show the difference between the walk of the flesh and the walk of faith. Along with this contrast, it should have become evident that the divide in American politics, religion, education, public opinion, sexual preference, abortion, political correctness, morals, ethics, and more are all spiritual issues. The problem is simple, the goals of radical Liberalism was born of the spiritual influence of Lucifer. Both Karl Marx and Alice A. Bailey have openly admitted and shown their allegiance to Lucifer but this information is not widely known.
- We are fighting a spiritual battle against the followers of devilish doctrines, but those followers may or may not know this fact.
- The few liberal people who do know they are pushing devilish doctrines, are lying to hide their allegiance to spiritual powers.
- The majority of liberal people who do not know they are supporting devilish doctrines, are good people with good intentions but no or little understanding of God.
- The majority of conservatives do not realize that they are fighting a spiritual battle.
- Conservatives who realize the battle is spiritual have no or little understanding of the tools, tactics and processes to battle spiritually so they are using the tools of the flesh.
- Conservatives who understand the spiritual battle are battling in remote pockets separated from one another.
- Church doctrines are working to defeat Conservative efforts to restore Godly morality back in our culture by denying the active, working, power of God.
- The Government is working to defeat Conservative efforts to restore Godly morality back in our culture by denying the existence of the spiritual realm altogether.
- The current interpretation of the separation doctrine practiced by the government is a current liberal distortion from the original conservative intention of our nation’s founding fathers. (See “The Light and The Glory” by Peter Marshall and David Manuel.)
Cultural factors are heavily weighted against Conservatives even though there appears to be a conservative president, a conservative Judicial majority, and a conservative Senate. The rest of our country is sharply divided and the House of Representatives in Congress clearly shows the true extent of that division. Half of our country apparently rejects the existence of God and embraces Scientific Atheism as a cultural ideology. The other half of the country accept the existence of God and embraces Godly Morality as our rightful cultural ideology. However, there is a great difference between someone who professes to be religious, someone who lives their religion, and a Radical Christian who lives and understands they have spiritual power.
If we are generous and say that our country is still 80% religious and professes a belief in God, that has to include anyone that professes a belief in God without any regard as to what they call Him. Whether God is the Great Spirit of the American Indian, a Hindu deity, a Shinto deity, Allah, the Father, El Shaddai, or Jehovah, anyone who is religious is included. Now we can reduce the total number by counting only those who practice what they believe, it doesn’t matter what that new total may be, it should be evident that the percentage will be much less than 80%. One in ten can be easily justified in any belief as a plausible ratio between professing and practicing believers. So we are down to only 8% of the total population as practicing believers in God without any regard to religious preference.
Finally, let’s take that 8% of the total population and evenly distribute that 8% to all of the available belief systems available. The percentage left to practicing Christians will be a fraction of 1%. We’ll be super generous in saying that 1% of all religious beliefs are truly practicing, religious Christians. They live their doctrine, they are faithful to their church and to God, they pray, tithe, and consistently volunteer their time and talent to serve any way they are asked. They are really good people, but they still may not know the voice of God in their lives consistently and live in the spiritual realm of God’s power and miraculous wonder. If the ratio is anything similar to what Jesus experienced, the about 120 in the upper room was led by 12 who knew the Spirit of God. Now the 1% is down to only .1% who can really call themselves Radical Christians. This is how overwhelmingly disproportionate spiritual Christian leaders really are in relationship to everyone else who truly believe they are spiritually right but still live no different from everyone else in the world. The ratio is now down to one in a thousand in comparison to the world. There are some people who would say that the true ratio is closer to one in ten thousand.
No matter how you choose to look at it, if you strive to know God and live in harmony with Him, the odds are stacked against you. If you walk by God’s Spirit and experience miracles in any way in your life that you can clearly point out, then you are a minority. If you consciously and consistently choose to buck against mainstream habits of self service, deception for advancement, and lies to gain an upper hand, then you are truly exceptional. If you count yourself among the one in a thousand, or one in ten thousand, then you should consider yourself called of God. The title of this blog is “How to Recognize a Miracle.” This is how to recognize a miracle.
Get up and go to your bathroom. Look into the mirror over the sink. Do you see that face looking back at you? Because of the affirmations you’ve made in the last paragraph, you are looking at the reflection of a miracle. If you ever doubt that God works miracles at all, go to the nearest mirror and remember who you really are, and who you really strive to serve in your life. You are a walking miracle of God and you are a Radical Christian.
You don’t have to take a hit and miss approach to learn how to walk with God any longer. You don’t have to live in doubt whether you are listening to God or a counterfeit source of authority over your life any longer. If you want to hone your ability to hear God’s voice in your life and know without a shadow of a doubt that you are His child, then tell Alexa to get on the internet and show you “Rules for Radical Christians: A Practical Primer for Defeating Radical Liberals at Their Own Game.” The first and most important defeat that the Liberals will face, is your own life. When you know their tactics and how they have deceived you and what you can do to overcome their power over your own life, then you have gained your most important victory over their devilish power. You have broken their ungodly power over your own life and turned that power back to yourself. And you have broken their ungodly authority over your life and turned that authority back to God. This book reveals the one truth the world doesn’t want you to know. You alone have the power to determine the destiny of your own eternity and nobody has the authority over your eternity but God Almighty.
