THE STREETS ARE TALKING - IS THE CHURCH LISTENING?
According to Ecclesiastics 3:1, there is a time for everything under the sun. There is time for doing what you must do and time for what you mustn’t do. “To every [thing there is] a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven”. So lets consider the time we're in right now. Lets consider the season to confront the "thing". Lets consider the purpose for this time. The streets are talking, yelling, screaming, hollering, protesting, rioting and crying out. When I say the streets I'm referencing the people in the streets allowing their feelings to overflow from the cup of waiting for change to happen. We're crying out for someone to answer the question posed to us from the great singer Marvin Gaye, "WHAT'S GOING ON?" Here's the bigger question, "Is the Church Listening?" Some maybe asking what does the church have to do with this? Great question. The church is the [Ecclesia], The word church in the Bible comes from the Greek word ecclesia, which means a called out company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible it refers to people. The word church is used three different ways: First, as the body of Christ, the church is often defined as a local assembly or group of believers (1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 1:1-2). Second, it is defined as the body of individual living believers (1 Corinthians 15:9; Galatians 1:13). Finally, it is defined as the universal group of all people who have trusted Christ through the ages (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 5:23-27). The thing we are facing today is the physical fruit with a Spiritual root. Only the church, can make the heavenly [spiritual] connection to resolve this earthly [physical] thing. Can't you hear, see, and feel people's pain and anger when you view CNN, FOX, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, BBC and other media out lets? Since all eyes [the world] are on us [America] and how we will respond in this season lets take up the whole armor of God and stand. Not only will we stand but lets stand therefore on the ground that Christ took back when He disarmed Satan. Yes, Satan has a weapon but it's not loaded. Christ took the bullets thereby taking away the sting. When Gotham needed Batman, the Bat Signal appeared in the sky. The world needs you, the church, each member playing their role coming together to bring the culture of Heaven on earth so let your LIGHT shine. The Kingdom Agenda is to bring the comprehensive rule of God into every area of life thereby capturing the time and changing the thought processes of man. We were created for a time such as this.
