What We MUST Do
These are the scriptural principles that ensure our success and guarantee victory in the Name of JESUS.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14
“If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among MY People;- 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.”
1. Humble ourselves..bow down and become truly submissive to GOD’s
2. Pray, pray, pray..for all men, for kings, for all that are in authority,
so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all GODliness
“I exhort therefore, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions , and giving of thanks, be made for all men; – For Kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all GODliness and honesty.”
3. Seek the face of GOD..crave and require of necessity GOD’s Face
(meaning, HIS Supreme Authority and Personhood), rather than
HIS Hands (meaning, HIS ‘Material Blessings’).
“But seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD, and HIS Righteousness; and all these things will be added unto you.”
The Kingdom of GOD is HIS Divine Dominion and Sovereign Rule.
4. Turn from our wicked ways..turn away from complacency, from
silence and from anonimity. Become active activists not complacent
cowards. Be tenaciously out-spoken about being misrepresented and
ignored as the ‘Christian Right’ rather than respected as the
5. Confess our faults to each other..openly acknowledge our
mistakes, our offenses, our false steps and our nonchalance;
concerning the erosion of our CHRIST-ian influence; praying for each
other so that WE can be healed and restored.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
6. Unify and mobilize as one Body to effectively accomplish what
“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.”
7. Become consistent and diligent in working together to do what is
right. Refuse to get tired or give up and quit.
“But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.”
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
8. Equip ourselves with the Armor of GOD and do all that the crisis
demands, to sucessfully withstand our opposition.
“Wherefore take unto you the whole Armor of GOD, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. - Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; – And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace; - Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. – And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD of GOD: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the SPIRIT, and watching thereunto with all perserverance and supplication for all saints.”
JESUS said: “…..upon this rock I will build MY Church;and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
9. Take aim only at our true enemy. Our enemy is not government,
our enemy is not the unbeliever, as a matter of fact, our enemy
is not man at all.
Use our GOD-given weaponry.
”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in the heavenlies.”
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds; – Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of CHRIST.”
10. Be wise in our obedience to the call and direction of GOD.
Matthew 10:16-18 AMP.
JESUS said: “Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves; be wary and wise as serpents, and be innocent, harmless, guileless and without falsity, as doves. - Be on guard against men whose way or nature is to act in opposition to GOD; for they will deliver you up to councils(and flog you in their synagogues), – And you will be brought before governors and kings for MY Sake, as a witness to bear testimony before them…”
“…for a testimony against them…”
These are the scriptural principles that ensure our success and guarantee victory in the Name of JESUS. If we do not embrace these things as the Will of GOD and practice them as our life style, we will most certainly fail and the Glory of Almighty GOD will not be revealed.
It is imperative that we do MORE than practice scriptural principles. We must take certain PRACTICAL ACTIONS if we are serious about having a REAL impact and making a REAL difference!!
