The True Nations Must Awaken!
Rehearsing dependence on a dictator?
We don’t like it because it totally shakes the current situation to the core. Many nations around the world are currently in bondage. They are caught in a slavery that keeps them from flourishing. The potential of many nations around the world has been taken captive by the institutional powers that refuse to believe in […]
Slavery or Liberty – That’s the big Issue
The entire world seems preoccupied with making large sweeping moves that shake nations and geographic regions. The only way to do this is through the use of power. True change doesn’t happen that way, but we don’t seem to care. We are so caught up in the now and the urgency of human endeavor that […]
Turkey – a case study
Most of the world is not even remotely engaged at the heart of this issue. For the follower of Jesus that takes Scripture seriously we find numerous mentions of this issue. From the time in the garden the paths were set before humanity. Life or death, liberty or slavery, love or sin, what will you […]
Why institutions are being shaken
Throughout the Bible we find evidence that there are guardian spirits set over nations. We see names like Egypt, Babylon, Libya, Assyria, Ethiopia and find there is a connection to a spirit of the land. Daniel heard the messenger angel say he had to fight the prince of Persia on the way. There is a […]
Political is Spiritual
There is a basic principle laid down in creation. It will only function in its purpose when rightly and relationally aligned with its Creator and source of Life and Purpose – the triune God of love. He is the true substance that upholds all things. By His Word all things are held together. Apart from […]
Nationalism or Globalism? Try Nationality!
Back in the days, when God commanded mankind to spread out and populate the earth, taking dominion over creation, He was disappointed by humanity’s choice to do the opposite. The tower of Babel was a direct threat to God’s purposes. When people said ‘Let’s make a name for ourselves’, they implied giving birth to a […]
The Kingdom of God is a Theocracy – of course!
Ethnicity is a historic reality. We all have a common origin. As time went by families became tribes and tribes became nations. The Bible is filled with scriptures that talk about nations. Because our identity is closely tied to our ethnic belonging we see an uprising today where people feel threatened. This idolized expression is […]
God is disrupting institutions for a reason!
From the beginning, God desired to be our only source of provision and blessing. When He was no longer acknowledged and mankind separated from God we essentially became fleshly beings, highly impacted by our sinful pursuits. Civil government was instituted as God’s servant, given authority by Him to secure justice among the peoples on earth. […]
The origin and purpose of nations – is Biblical
Throughout history we have seen empires rise and fall. Nations that establish or become institutions may also fall prey to spiritual powers seeking their allegiance. The historic record shows us that institutions far too often go this way. They become corporate expressions beyond the people within and often corporate culture or human traditions take people captive. […]
Scripture has already predicted the time we live in. There is a battle going on against the very essence of being nation in the world today. The agenda is not new – an attempt to eradicate any trace of God’s purpose and establish a global totalitarian rule. This is diametrically opposed to the Kingdom of […]
