People, like me far roo often; get caught up in the activities and cares of this world. Personally, I don’t believe our God is pleased with that. If we begin this by asking ourselves a simple question about ourselves and, seeking that answer then, it might help, even me to make my point. You and I being born again, washed in the blood of Jesus Christ; what did it take to transform you to the person that God desired for you to be?
My answer to that question is; it took the Holy Spirit of God moving within me to cause me to change direction. And, more than likely you, being born by the same spirit will say the same thing. When we are born again, we become a part of the body of Christ. We are a special group of people, a peculiar people. ( 1 Peter 2:9 ) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkenss into his marvellous light:
If you will go and read that, you will see it actually says more about who we are. We, as members of ( the Church ) ( the body of Christ ) are a nation within ourself. In this nation we are all ( royal priest ) ( a holy nation ). We are seen as ( peculiar people ). That, because we are not of this world or, like this world. Our whole mindset is different than the world.
So, since I live in the ( United States ), here we have both, Democrats and Republicans, people of different political opinions and, ( born again believers ). I often say this as a believer. If my desire is to see people transformed into the ( nation to which I am a member of ) then I have to be careful of the battles I fight. Therefore, I don’t want to be seen as a Democrat or Republican but, a born again believer, washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. If I make any person my enemy seeking to win a political battle then I might lose the ability to win the battles I truly seek to win within that one person.
Therefore, should born again believers be in politics? I can only answer that question for myself. You will have to make you own choice about what you decide to do. I will say this; as born again believers, people that are members of that royal priesthood; if we would draw back and, seek the center of God’s will, come together in prayer, become the powerful force that we can be, I believe we could make a difference in our nation.
For instance, ( the holy nation ) that we are members of is very solid in its leadership, perfect in wisdom and guidance. Therefore, let’s say that within the ( United States of America ) we have a leader that is not a member of the same ( holy nation ) we are. As members of ( the holy nation ) we are dissatisfied with his leadership, his complete mindset. So, let’s all come together and begin to pray in unity as a ( holy nation ) that God will transform his heart that he might become a member of the same ( holy nation ) we are members of.
As members of this ( holy nation ) we need to focus, come together in truth. We need a spokesman with the ability to go face to face with the leader of ( the United States of America ) and, look at him eye to eye and say:
As members of ( the holy nation ) we believe that based on what we see in you; you do not know Jesus Christ as your savior. There are many aspects of what; you say, you support that csnnot be a part of ( the holy nation ) we are a part of. I, as a spokesman from that nation am here, speaking to you to let you know that we, as members of ( the holy nation ) are praying in one accord and power that God will do whatever it takes to cause your eyes to be opened spiritually, no matter what the cost to us or, you and your family.
We, as members of ( the holy nation ) are the power of God on this earth. Our desire is to see you come to know Jesus Christ as your personal savior, to be born again. I, as a spokesman for my nation would like to share Jesus Christ with you. I’m simply using this as an example. The main point is that we must seperate ourselves from the world an its views, We must become a unified body for Jesus Christ with a voice above all.
We have members of ( the holy nation ) that have a desire to adentify with a particular political party, we must refrain from that and, begin to speak and stand firmly on the precepts of the word of God alone. This is a very tall order because the concept of ( the Church ) has become so marred by the world and worldly views that we now have a very hard time finding the center of God’s will. Look at this verse of scripture: ( 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 ) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye seperate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you, ( 18 ) And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
To whom is the Apostle Paul speaking here? Basically, we are seeing a Church here that is allowing all kinds of sinful activity to continue within ( what is called ) ( a Church ). There were members of ( the holy nation ) continuing to call themselves members of that Church. Do we not see the same thing today? It has become so bad that now ( born again believers ) are having to be ( ambassadors ) to even the Churches they are members of.
The term ( come out from among them ), what does that mean? I heard a saying once that went like this. It was speaking of prayer. ( Prayer has not to do with the position of the body but, the condition of the heart. ) This can relate to where you are and, how you come out as well. Another way of looking at it is that; I can’t be an ambassador to the town I live in and leave the town. However, with that being said I must be seen and heard in a totally different light.
I feel compelled to say this here. As a member of the ( holy nation ) I totally disagree with abortion in any form. I disagree with ( same sex marriage ). I also disagree with adultery, fornication, lying, stealing and so on. I hate the fact that sometimes I fall and yield to my weak flesh; myself. If I were a member, an ambassador within a Church to supported those thing, even put up with those mindset, then that Church would know exactly where I stand.
As an ambassador of Jesus Christ within my Church, my town, my county, my state and my country; I see something that is or, has transpired far worse that the things I have mentioned and, I admit, they are bad. What happens when these things start to be approved by our local Churches? The very power of God, the Holy Spirit leaves. He’s not just weakened, he leaves. Therefore, if there is a member of the ( holy nation ) within that Church he or she becomes a voice that must be heard. When it continues to stay as it is, either that voice is stopped or that voice leaves.
The mindset I see today is one totally of deception. We are teaching ( a form of Godlines, but denying the power thereof ) ( 2 Timothy 3:5 ) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
What are we saying here? As a voice for the ( holy nation ) that I am a member of; this is what I proclaim. We are preaching, teaching, proclaiming ( Jesus Christ ) in our local Churches ( In Name Only ). While his name is being mentioned and, even his word being used, the power of the Holy Spirit is gone. We are being taught that basic Church membership and baptism is ( salvation ) and it has nothing to do with actually being ( born again ).
This mindset began long before what we see; as being excepted in our Churches today came about. Shall I continue? My heart and soul is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and, the need of a transformation within every person, that by, and only by the Holy Spirit of God. I am a member of ( THE HOLY NATION ). I seek to seperate myself from any and every thing that is spiritually unclean and, my desire is to uplift and glorify my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
If you read this and, you are not truy born again, my desire is to help you see how to become a member of the same ( holy nation ) I’m a member of. It takes the blood of Jesus Christ. He, being completely without sin, offered himself as a sacrifice for your sins. It takes the knowledge that you are a sinner in need of that blood. It takes you, as an individual asking him to become your savior and receiving the Holy Spirit of God within your heart.
When you become a member of the ( holy nation ) then, that Holy Spirit will lead you and, guide you to all truth. The members of that ( holy nation ) will help you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They will only teach you godliness and, how to be sanctified by the very Spirit of God.
TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY !
2 Timothy 1 :7
