It is only from the perspective of the will of God coming forth that politics have any meaning. Every facet of life on this planet is to come under the dominion of the Lord Jesus Christ. We do not yet see this manifested in the natural realm. The writer of Hebrews testifies to this truth.
6 But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him?
7 You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands.
8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
10 ¶ For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
1st Cor. 15:25 says that He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. In the realm of spirit it has been done. It is finished. But His work must be manifested in the natural realm. There can be no dominion of the Lord over this natural realm without everything first being shaken up. ‘”…whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven. Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.”‘
Why are we seeing such upheaval right now in the political arena? Many hearts and motives are being revealed. Many hidden manipulations are being exposed. Christianity has been slow to understand the true meaning of judgment. The exposure and judgment of the false must precede the manifestation of the true.
1 ¶ Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
3 “Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!”
4 He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying,
6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”
There is an old saying which goes, “If you kick the dung, it will stink.” Well, God is kicking the dung. Does this sound crude? It is the truth. This is why we are witnessing the fulfillment of the above verses. The spiritual forces behind everything happening in the natural realm are being exposed and judged. The following passages reveal the principles of judgment.
22 ¶ Now on one of those days Jesus and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they launched out.
23 But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger.
24 They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and it became calm.
25 And He said to them, “Where is your faith?” They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?”
26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee.
27 And when He came out onto the land, He was met by a man from the city who was possessed with demons; and who had not put on any clothing for a long time, and was not living in a house, but in the tombs.
28 Seeing Jesus, he cried out and fell before Him, and said in a loud voice, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me.”
Why did a fierce gale of wind descend upon the lake? It occurred because the authority of God, resident in Jesus, penetrated into areas usurped by principalities and powers. Jesus entering that realm stirred up a hornet’s nest. His very presence kicked the dung. It’s significant that after the calming of the storm, they entered the country of the Gerasenes. As soon as they came to land they were met by a man possessed with demons. Why was that? Did that demon possessed guy just happen to wander up as Jesus was getting out of the boat? Or, was it all orchestrated by God to teach us that as His presence is manifested, all things are brought out in the open and confronted? Jesus said, “But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”
What is the invisible source of the turmoil in America and the rest of the earth? Is it all just happenstance? Or, is God’s presence being manifested in such a way as to stir everything that has been hidden?
1 ¶ And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.
12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.
13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
15 From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.
16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
The majority of Christianity does not relate to the revelation of the Lord as revealed in the above passages. Political correctness is cloaked in the religious spirit. This spirit mandates that nothing offensive be spoken. Never think that what is happening in our culture is detached from spiritual realities. The realm of spirit is the source of all happenings in this natural realm. God is bringing forth an army as verse 14 states. The word of God in their mouths confronts everything that opposes His kingdom. Does this sound radical? Does this sound devoid of the “love of Jesus” that so permeates Christianity? It is the love of Christ that confronts the things that hinder His kingdom from coming forth. It is time to discern the presence of Christ in His glory devoid of the religious spirit that distorts who He really is.
