The LORD GOD called you out even before birth (Ephesians 1:4). The One who is Omniscient knew from before the beginning of time who would be receptive to the Lord Jesus; these are they called to be light (Colossians 1:11-14), who aren’t concerned about worldly popularity. Nevertheless, the lost and/or confused have taken notice and are indeed curiously observing those made sons & daughters of GOD by the blood of Jesus; identifiable by the Spirit of God within. Even the thief who only comes to steal and kill and destroy knows; hence attempts to harass and plant thoughts contrary to the Word of God. The primary deception of the thief is to keep whosoever from God’s Word because it’s easier to trick a human being out of whatsoever they’ve absolutely no awareness of. Therefore, it’s essential to know what God has spoken in order to speak in agreement with His Word. Lack of awareness of even the most basic precepts for operating in the Kingdom of God “on earth as it is in HeavenLuke 11:2 (NKJV), serves to minimize one’s ability as a kingdom citizen because comprehension precedes application. A few examples:

  • Though a significant number believe and confess the Lord Jesus (Joel 2:32; Matthew 10:32; Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9-13), no awareness of the fact that He came so that we may (free-will) “have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)John 10:10b (AMP), probably results in various aspects of lack (i.e., joy, peace, etc.). 
  • No awareness of Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24 specifying that the stripes Christ Jesus received (on His back from the whips with metal on each end) on behalf of all mankind, probably results in not confessing JEHOVAH-RAPHA as Healer.
  • Scant knowledge that GOD is LOVE (1 John 4:8,16) and/or that the commandment of the New Testament/New Covenant is love (Matthew 22:27-40; John 15:17) and/or that the Spirit has poured God’s kind of love into every reborn spirit (Romans 5:5) and/or that the operative force of faith is love (Galatians 5:6), probably sets-up for teaming with the accuser of the brethren – the thief that delights in manipulating various acts of self-poisoning rooted in demonic division, hate, jealousy, name-calling, un-forgiveness, etc.

The power of God within each reconciled unto Abba Father by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus is emboldening. For we are to operate like Jesus operates; we were created for such a time as this. Come out, come out, wherever you are . . .  yet be sure to get wisdom in order to operate with the mind of Christ (Proverbs 4:5-8; 1Co 2:6-16). Know God’s Word (comprehension) to speak God’s Word (application).
