November Partner Letter
Given the freedom of choice, most people choose to believe what suits them or their particular worldview based on their culture or family beliefs. Having been raised in a full gospel church in a small southern town (England, Arkansas) with Christian parents, my worldview was disrupted when at the age of 19, I went to Dallas, Texas and experienced speeding traffic on immensely wide freeways that curved around everywhere. I was further shocked when I was taken to dinner by some well-to-do Texans and they asked if I would like some hot tea. I thought it was a joke! Seriously, I had never considered anyone would drink tea hot. Always iced with lots of sugar!
Jesus came from a place much more foreign than Dallas, Texas. The laws and functioning of heavenly things are so foreign to the natural that even His disciples had a hard time grasping what He was saying. Being earthly, we interpret the world through our senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight. But there is a higher realm that supersedes all this – the realm of the spirit. The realm of the Holy Spirit and the human spirit.
“Now we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit of God, so that we might understand the things God has so freely given us.” (I Corinthians 2:12 CJB)
Today, we see the spirit of the world rising up fully demonstrating hatred, division and strife. This is a recipe for defeat. A worldview of conspiracy theories and suspicion does not bring peace. Something is happening in our world but it must be spiritually discerned. Don’t give in to hatred, strife and division. Satan, the murderer of humans from the beginning is attempting an all out assault – not just on Christians but on the human race that God created. He wants to destroy the earth and everything in it. The motivation BEHIND the hatred and lies is satan. (John 8:44)
In spite of this, by prayer and discernment of the Spirit, you will see God is working behind the scenes and great revival is happening – a great spiritual awakening.
In the 1960’s with all the social unrest, rioting and murder, the Jesus movement sprang forth leading to the Charismatic movement. Right now in 2020, there is revival happening on the beaches of California and it will continue to spread.
Don’t allow satan or your worldview to lead you down the road of wrong thinking, wrong believing and wrong speaking. Look beyond in the Spirit. God is moving!
