Bringing biblical perspectives to present global human crisis

A failing human governing system

Today I would like to draw your attention to something very crucial and important.  The world continues to slide downward with the standards and values she has created for herself.  Ancient powers and authorities that seem to have held governing human philosophies together are collapsing from their high positions. From Tunisian unemployed youth clashes with Government, to the present American political crisis that claimed six lives; to Australia’s flood disaster which has also claimed untold numbers of lives in the past few weeks. These are all indicators of a major shift in the foundation of the earth’s structure that requires precise spiritual insight to how to live in a season like this.

The Lord promised that before the end of the age he will shake the {philosophy} foundation of everything that can be shaken, so that those things that are unshakable may remain. Foundations that are not solidly laid on the revelation of the person and nature of Christ will certainly give in when these shakes begin.  Brethren, we are living in a time that we cannot afford to be undiscerning in our judgment about the state of things.  Watching your loved ones being wasted away either by a stray bullet or by a deliberate shooting just because of his or her political opinion is difficult for anyone to forget.

Gen 11:1-4

11:1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. 3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” NIV

What about those who have lost everything to fires, floodwaters and earthquakes? What about the thousands of innocent souls that have been cold- bloodedly murdered in Darfur, either because of the color of their skin or religious orientation?  How are we supposed to live and co-exist as humans in terrible days ahead of us without losing our sanity and faith in the true God?   Well, the test of a well refined and defined humanity is revealed in seasons and times of immense darkness. It’s been said that man’s greatest battle is the one he fights and wins from within.  The capacity to stand above your cultural or national limitation lies within you. The understanding of truth from the perspective of the truth himself will certainly give you the head start even when you have lost everything.

Building a stronger prophetic capacity for the days ahead

Global challenges affect the core structure of human existence irrespective of where you are or live. Meaning, you should be concerned about the present situations across the world because it will affect how you buy or sale.  The present world is so interconnected that you cannot afford to turn from issues happening somewhere in the Far East.  On 11thJanuary 2011 it was exactly one year since the Asian nation of Haiti was devastated by a major earthquake; Ivory Coast to Pyongyang. We are seeing statements being made on the wall that only those with the sight of the ancient one can read.  World leaders are all found to have the same problem- weak and uninformed leadership. Some regions that have realized how weak, unproductive and expensive the concept of democratic governance is have decided to create an alternative rule of leadership. However, this is not the answer to the vision of corporate societal development?

The various alternatives that human beings have chosen as their accepted concepts of leadership lack the precise inner transformation that comes through the power and authority of the Spirit of truth.  The breaking down of all moral structures within man is the big issue that must be recognized and dealt with. This is the key contributing factor to all the other injustices and evil we are witnessing all over the world.  In other words, the challenges faced by society today are the direct impact of refusing the wisdom of God as the driving force to human existence.  Education does not exempt the existence of God; rather it should enhance our pursuit and desire to follow the ways of the Lord in Spirit and in truth.  When people in leadership positions refuse or abuse their authority to challenge the existence and wisdom of God in the society, they jeopardize the destiny of their people to satanic invasion.

You as the head of the home, fellowship, business, school or community play a vital role in informing and shaping the destiny of the people around you. Christians in our time needs to understand the dynamics of living and working in a secular society. There is no room for compromise, yet on the issues of religious forbearance in the society we need clear spiritual insight so that the enemy will not use our ignorance to hinder the invasion and advancement of the kingdom of God.  Zeal without sound biblical knowledge and interpretation will certainly truncate the acceleration of the Lords purposes through his Church.

Unmasking the strategy of the enemy

The enemy we are dealing with is highly intelligent when it comes to using deception and falsehood to perpetuate his evil plans where there is no clear vision. In trying to enforce what one part believes to be the truth has caused great damage to man. This wrong mentality today is the driving force of what we defined to be the society.  The issue of check and balance within the template of existence is almost none-existing. Perverted understanding of diplomacy in reaching amicable agreement either from the family level to global leadership should be corrected if humans are going to co-exist. Faith and religion ought to be the foundation that guides and empowers humans from behaving like the beasts in the fields. Now, when religion, either Islam or Christianity is used to brainwash and incite unrefined human emotion, what you get is always tragic. Religion should be for the good will of humanity and not a channel of destruction. When the mission of a religious faith or denomination or belief is to use any means necessary; including killing innocent people; to persuade or force others to join them, such faith becomes injurious to humanity. We cannot talk about governance without considering the various levels of leadership influence. Politics or religion all plays a major role in the development and transformation of society. Therefore, understanding the meeting points and boundary lines of these orders of leadership enhances co-existence in societies.

Due to the lack of matured leadership in managing the structure of various political opinions, society has become more fragile and almost ungovernable.  As we flash on critical incidents taking place across the globe, what you hear is the lack of leaders with the swift capacity to precisely respond to issues. The present challenges faced by the world have made past knowledge and understanding in dealing with crisis and development obsolete. Transition into a global society demands an in-depth understanding of the nature and reality of the 21st century society. There is no doubt that the world requires better and more proficient visionary leaders with the capacity to bring a lasting change. Change must be directed towards precise destination. In other words, what change is designed to achieve in our lives corporately or individually must be clearly defined.

And the prophets of God were with them, helping them. Ezra 5:1-2

As the Lord continues to sound the trumpet of reawakening and repositioning in the hearing of his sleeping church, there will be a generation harvested in this awakening with a well developed and matured apostolic culture in the revelation of Christ who will fulfillment promises and prophecies of the scripture through the power of lifestyle. This is the hour in which the Lord is harvesting his purposes and desire within the hearts of the watchmen as the advance into the nations. As the earth continues to groan for the manifestation of the Spirit of Sonship in the Church, it shall be written as a song in days not afar that Lord as brought forth a company of them who have refused to defile themselves with women so they can bring forth the ministry of deliverance to the planet and all creature from corruption and pollution.  We shall not stop prophesying for the healing of the nations…
