Some lesson to learn from Boston bombing
Our heart and deepest prayer goes out to the city of Boston, and the entire nation of America as they morn the tragic killing of innocent lives and hundreds wounded in this last terrorist attack.
However, as prophetic people, what are the lessons that can be learnt
The nation of America is known and believed to be one of the super power of the world in terms of their system of intelligence and sophisticated weaponry. While they where preparing themselves and their allies incase of a nuclear attack from North Korea, a more subtle enemy saw their focus on the North as a strategic opportunity to distract and invade the nation unnoticed.
1- We cannot live in the delusion of thinking we are secure when our walls and gates are already invaded by the enemy.
2- There as to be a constant redefinition of spiritual intelligence and authority as the strategy of the enemy’s attack changes from season to season.
3- While the power of Gods word is eternal by nature. however, how the word is fashioned, handle and understood within our spirit man must be updated from time to time. Certain spiritual method we once use in defeating the enemy in the past have become just too weak and obsolete in dealing with the more complex challenges of our time. The current speaking and emphasis of the Spirit defines to us the kind of weaponry needed to expose and destroy the activity of darkness. There is a need for spiritual upgrade.
4- We cannot afford to be cut off guard. Our first duty is to prevent the invasion of the enemy, and not to merely manage the assault of darkness on our lives.
5- when you shift from the values, standards and the principle of building your life,family, city or nation according to the divine pattern, you automatically abdicate your authority and power to lead and secure the future.
6- The enemy usually take advantage of a weak-link within. Ones there is devision of vision, purpose, value and objective as a community, the enemy already have access into the land; regardless of how alert and prepared the guards on our walls and gates may be. A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.
7- True leadership cannot be defined as a gray color, it’s either black or white, true or false. some of the ungodly values and humanistic policies made by lawmakers to accommodate everyone’s ideology or belief system has made the life of the people more vulnerable to attack and destruction.
8- Except the Lord watches our city, all our secured intelligence and sophisticated weapons cannot stop an enemy determine to wipe us off the planet.
9- We are learning daily that even the most powerful nation are still vulnerable once their sense of awareness of the change in season become weakened and dull.
10- The enemy uses terrorism to release and spread the spirit of fear and anxiety in other to cripple society from advancing. We must never give in to the spirit of fear, masqueraded in terrorism.
11- The nation of America and its leadership seriously need the intercession of believers globally.
12- Righteousness still exalt a nation and sin remains a reproach…
13- We must learn to arise and shine the light of Christ kingdom even in the midst of the greatest form of darkness around. The best time to shine the light of God is in the midst of darkness.
14- we need to learn to trust God and not our human wisdom because they will surely fail
15- Any society that rejects the whole counsel of God for living will find it very difficult to experience lasting and meaningful peace and joy
