History always has a way of repeating itself. Is it by chance or for a Divine Purpose? I am not one to stay up to speed on much of the news, politics, economy, etc. However, one thing I do pay a lot of attention to are the things that motivate others. I guess you could say, I am a “people watcher”.
It seems like “The American Dream” and the pursuit of obtaining that reality has been a consistent motivator for generations. We have fought to climb the ladder, killed for the sake of limiting someone’s dream and even sold each other when we couldn’t realize or fathom that we were all created out of the likeness and image of one greater power. Perhaps, “The American Dream” had become the religion that we all longed to become members of even though we had been given the right to “Religious Freedom”.
We took the backseat on issues, such as prayer in schools, the legalization of same-sex marriages and even the right for an innocent life to be taken, we called that Pro-choice. If we can understand that most of these changes actually transpired because of the fight of an individual that spread their message, as we were instructed to do, “Go ye therefore…”, then we can start to understand how we became indoctrinated and included on a roll sheet that we were never purposed to follow.
So why now has our economy crashed, unemployment levels on the rise, wars breaking out and an entire shift, that I feel, taken place? One word, in my mind, restoration. We are seeing how greed, self-centeredness, pride, arrogance and deceit can lead to the fall of any man. Even the prodigal son had to return back home, before he could be cleaned up and restored back into his rightful place.
Are you in position? Naturally, the family is going to be the necessary and fundamental aspect of the foundation that first needs to be restored. We went from one parent working homes, to two parent working homes and now we are lucky if either parent is working. Our villages have been ambushed and there is no longer any accountability. I am my brothers keeper. However, a family that does not submit to God, will soon fall victim to the religion of “The American Dream” and repeat the cycle that we are preparing to recover from. Who will take the lead in this transformation? It seems simple right, the Church. I have recoginized that I am the church, you are the church, WE ARE THE CHURCH. So what are we going to do? Influence the change that we were suppose to influence, through obedience, deligence, perserverance, faith, power and love. Be the change that God called you to be. He said if I be lifted up, I would draw all men unto me. Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it.
I am ready for change. Restoration is here. The wealth of the world is laid up for the righteous. If Moses had been following after “The American Dream”, the children of Egypt would still be in bondage. Well, we have led and left an entire generation back into Egypt and in order to be delivered over into the land of milk and honey, we must pull them out one at a time. Yes, we are going to go up against Pharoah’s army(The government). You see because of the children of Egypts bondage, Pharoah’s government gained wealth in spite of the corruption. However, we can see right now there have been some plagues to hit. Now is the time to put on the whole armour and get prepared for battle. I am taking back what is rightfully mine.
