Yes, I am a stirrer… a rebel!
My very life speaks of it!
No, not like Juju, I do not believe in politics.
Politics is a power struggle for power, but I am already “full of power by the Spirit of Jehovah” and therefore need no other.
Life is not only about politics, but have many other dynamics. It consists of systems that function collectively and influence one another. All the good and evil are thus shared amongst all these systems and the dynamic workings of these systems are the same, good and evil.
Mankind are all in the same boat, caught within the dynamics of these systems. Not able or willing to break free from it, and such is life.
BUT HOW DO WE LIVE PURE AND PERFECT LIVES IF WE ARE CAUGHT WITHIN THIS LIFE?
YOU NEED THE NEW AND TRUE LIFE FIRST!!! THE LIFE THAT IS ONLY FOUND IN THE LIFEGIVER, JESUS CHRIST!
Death is scary, painful and feared, but I am not talking about physical death. I am talking about separation from the true life through these life systems, killing you over and over again.
The only way to find this new life is to stop eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Choose then to eat from the tree of life. (Genesis 2:9, 17; 3:1-18). You have to accept that your current life is eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. You have to take the steps to stop it and start eating form the tree of life.
Eating from the tree of life is going to cost you something in a worldly sense. So eating of it as one who wades into a river , first ankle deep , then knee deep , then waist deep and then over your head (Ezekiel 47:1-12). This dedication will then produce short term and long term results.
The tree of life have different kinds of fruit and what ever you need, that fruit will be available for you. One of the most important fruits we need is WISDOM. We daily need to receive wisdom from the tree of life (James 3:13-18).
Our greatest fear is for the unknown and this fear might be standing between you and the tree of life. Yes, you have to totally and completely let go of everything and embrace this new life with absolutely everything within you. This is not a once-off thing, but a daily choice. Eat of the tree of life daily… The pips and seeds of the fruit we eat comes into our lives and starts growing. It will first shoot some roots and sometime later the first leaves will break through the dirt.
This is only the beginning and those new leaves are very tender. You might be stepped on a few times by big heavy feet or eaten by a worm… Still you have to make a stand. All the times you were almost destroyed your roots were still growing stronger and stronger. Pretty soon you will grow past this tender times and by making a stand over and over again your stem will become stronger and stronger.
These systems of the world are evil, because they are based on the knowledge of good and evil and we can not always differentiate between the two. But if these systems are built on truth only, they will stand and serve us.
To have faith in the word means to apply the word. We need to be encouraged to test it and to see the truth of the applied word so that we may know that we are participating in an unshakeable kingdom.
Love is the strength, the tool, the action, the dedication and the way we continue on through all these difficult times. Because true love comes from God and will drive out all fear and build you up, enabling you to become the man or woman He intended you to be before the foundations of this world. You are therefore taking part in God’s great plan for mankind…
…The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace.
You will never have true peace as long as you are seeking it amongst these systems that are driven by good and evil.
Father God teach us and remind us to find everything we need from the Tree of Life.
Wisdom is a tree of life to everyone who embrace it and the one holding on to it is happy (Proverbs 3:18).
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life (Proverbs 11:30).
A tongue that heals is a tree of life …(Proverbs 15:4).
Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the victor the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in God’s paradise. (Revelation 2:7)
For the bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. (John 6:33)
The Spirit is the One who gives life. The flesh doesn’t help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. (John 6:63)
