I want to thank our friends who have made this “Shelter in Place” bearable. We’ve lost our jobs by order of the government, and are waiting for the stimulus package to kick in. In the meantime, friends have given us food and money to keep our household afloat. I can’t say enough thanks for the love extended, and I know without a doubt that God is keeping score of all the good that people are doing for one another in this time of crisis. Now is the time for true Christian love and compassion. Now is the time for prayer. We need to be praying for the protection of our families, friends, church, school, jobs, and cities. We need to be praying for our neighbors, first responders, and medical people. We need to be praying for the businesses, working to make face masks and respirators to keep people alive. We need to be praying for President Trump to continue to make good decisions for the protection of our nation and world. The Body of Christ needs to be united in this time of need, we cannot afford to abandon one another, and this time will prove to be our greatest hour.
We can’t let our guard down. Now is still the time to humble ourselves and thank God for deliverance. We need to humble ourselves because we have denied His sovereignty over our lives and culture. Instead, we have made logic and reason the authority over our lives. The realm of the spirit used to be split into two camps fighting against each other. The first is under God’s dominion, the second is under Lucifer’s dominion. As we drew closer to the logic of the flesh, we denied the existence of God’s dominion and called His spiritual power devilish. We’ve made His righteous, spiritual dominion no different from Lucifer’s, and in the process chose to reject the truth and presence of the Holy Spirit. We have chosen to make ourselves god and live as we please. We have denied his power and authority.
Now is the time to turn back to God and witness His delivering power over our land.
2 Chronicles 7: 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Now is the time for us to learn that He will reveal Himself to us, as we seek Him.
Proverbs 8: 17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
Now is the time for us to experience His comfort in the midst of turmoil.
Genesis 28: 15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
Now is the time for us to live without fear because God is always with us.
Joshua 1: 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
God never gave us a spirit of fear, now is our time to tap into the spirit He gave us.
2 Timothy 1: 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Until Jesus returns, (and it can happen at any time), every situation is an opportunity for us to demonstrate His grace and love. Now is our time to be strong in His grace.
2 Timothy 2: 1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
As sons and daughters of God, now is the time for believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to prove His power.
Ephesians 6: 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
This is our repentance. Forgive us Father for denying your spiritual existence, your morals, your truth, your Word, and your authority in our lives. Thank you for keeping everyone who loves you safe in this time of fear and tribulation against Covid-19. Thank you for showing your power of deliverance to everyone who turns to you in this time of trial. Thank you for revealing Jesus in our hearts. Thank you for bringing unbelievers to Christ and making His voice and power evident once again. Thank you for your love and making your love living and real to everyone who loves you and desires to know you.
If you are struggling to learn how to build your own personal relationship with God the Father Almighty, I wrote this book to help you. Don’t let the title scare you into believing the relationship will make you a radical, the relationship itself is radical. It takes your religion to the next level, the level where God is no longer an abstract concept, but a living reality in your life. Radical Christianity is personal, spiritual Christianity in its purest form. The point where God’s love and God’s power is ever present, powerful, and real.
