What Does God Expect of a “Revolutionary Christian?”
What is the COMMITMENT OF A REVOLUTIONARY CHRISTIAN?

 

Revolution by George Barna

Pastor Ernie Sanders at Doer's of the Word Unregistered Baptist Church

I found the answer in Chapter 2, Pages 26-27, in George Barna’s book, “Revolution,” and from Pastor Ernie Sanders’ Bible Study on Thursday, June 2, 2011, a King James Bible-based, conservative, uncompromising, talk-radio program, “What’s Right, What’s Left, The Voice of the Christian Resistance.” His web site is: www.WRWL.org.  To listen live on your radio dial, tune in WHKW – AM 1220, The Word, a 50,000 watt Salem Christian Radio Station in the Greater Cleveland area and other localities, plus worldwide live over the Internet from 9 to 11 PM, Monday thru Friday, at www.WHKWradio.com on your computer.  His local call in number is (216) 901-0933.  Long distance, toll free (888) 677-9673.

An excellent book that will open one’s eyes to the power of Jesus Christ and the Revolution taking place in the True Christian Church of Jesus Christ’s True Believers is “REVOLUTION” by George Barna.

Barna writes:  “Get used to the fact that your life is lived in the context of warfare.  Every breath you take is an act of war.  To survive and thrive in the midst of the spiritual battle in which you live, seek a faith context an experience that will enhance your capacity to be Christlike.  This mission demands single-minded commitment and a disregard for the criticisms of those who lack the same dedication to the cause of Christ.  You answer to only one Commander in Chief, and only you will give an explanation for your choices.  Do whatever you have to do to prove that you fear God, you love Him, and you serve Him — yes, that you live only for Him.”

That is the commitment of a Revolutionary.

I urge you to refer back to my two previous posts regarding The Christian Revolution and links to those posts are displayed at the end of this post.

Are you prepared to accept that the world is going to hate you?  Are you prepared to follow Christ using The Holy Bible as your worldview?  Pay attention to the following verses from the Gospel of John.  Jesus spoke these words to his disciples…

John 15:18-27 KJV

[18]  If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
[19]  If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
[20]  Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
[21]  But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
[22]  If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
[23]  He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
[24]  If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
[25]  But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
[26]  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
[27]  And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

The world, the un-Christian media, the anti-American public school system, the unjust justice system in place today,  the feminists, Planned Parenthood – the list is endless, but some of the worst opposition will come from the churches that are not churches, but corporations playing happy, silly, little love songs in their Sunday entertainment center that are interested in marking up huge numbers of attendees with huge numbers of dollars in every collection plate to lace the pockets of the so-called “reverend” in charge, they will not love you.  They will hate what you do.  They will oppose your worldview because it is NOT their worldview or that of Jesus Christ.

If you decide to decide to join the Christian Revolution, know that you are not greater than Jesus Christ or His Law-Word (the Holy Bible) so you cannot expect that you will be treated better than Jesus was here on planet earth.

Moreover, you cannot work in the flesh.  You have to work in the spirit and be submitted to Jesus Christ at every corner and turn in your life.  Remember, they hated Jesus Christ and crucified him.  Don’t anticipate that you will fill auditoriums with people cheering your every word and ogling over your wisdom.  You will be part of a minority of believers.  This minority are the true believers and the ones who are truly saved and whom you will one-day see in heaven singing “Amazing Grace”.  They killed the prophets of the Old Testament.  They threw Jeremiah down a well.  Every apostle, except John, was murdered by the establishment.

There are huge numbers of people attending so-called churches that are not churches.  They are state-controlled corporations having already given themselves over to the I.R.S. by accepting the 501 c 3.  They submit to “Caesar” and preach along with the politically correct dogma.  Jesus Christ is not their head, “Caesar” is.  The vast majority of so-called Christians go to places filled with men who wear fine robes and speak to tickle the ears that is acceptable to the powers in place today.  They are the false preachers that spread false dogma.  They focus on getting their preaching voices trained to speak at just the right pitch and pace and using words to work up the congregants to a high they mistake for the work of the Holy Spirit.  They wave the Bible that they don’t believe.  They are the false prophets that Christ warned us about – wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Because you are acting for the benefit of God’s Will Being Done On Planet Earth and not the will of man, you may no longer be able to continue to attend your current church because the people there will reject you and your newfound zeal.  Your “reverend” will not approve of your actions.  He will tell you to go along to get along.  He will tell you to compromise to get them in the doors.  He will tell you not to remind people of their sins – sins like abortion, pornography, adultery,  fornication, sodomy.  He will tell you that you have to love everyone and that you’re filled with hate.  But that is not what Jesus Christ said.  Jesus said, “Go and sin no more,” to the woman caught in the sin of adultery.

So how do we love?  We speak the truth in love and warn people that if they continue in their sin they will end up in hell.  That message is not well received by people who want to keep sinning and enjoying it or a “reverend” concerned about keeping the pews filled so the collection plate overflows.

But you, a Christian Revolutionary, cannot provide a cloak for sin.  Jesus told us not to.  He didn’t provide a cloak to gloss over sin.  Jesus knew his message would be rejected by the vast majority of people of his time – and he knew it would still be rejected by the vast majority of people in 2011.  Then and now, they hated Jesus Christ without a cause; therefore, they will hate you and me who join with this Revolution – they will hate us without a just cause.

Nevertheless, the amazing thing is this wonderment!  You will be filled with God’s Own Holy Spirit, the Comforter, and you will be able to wax bold with Holy Truth, fearlessly.  You will be so filled with the Holy Spirit you will run to the battle not wanting to wait for it to find you!  You won’t be found hiding somewhere cowering in a corner, hoping the world will not notice you.  You will be anxious to build your treasures in heaven, crowns made of pure gold, not those material rewards found here on planet earth that moths can destroy.

So re-read the third paragraph at the beginning of this post that I quoted from the book, “Revolution,” and make a decision.  Are you a real Christian or a pretender?  Are you willing to live your life in the context of constant warfare – because you are going to be warring with Satan and his children (every unbeliever) who lives on planet earth, not only in public offices, but in the un-justice system, inside your child’s public school, in the media, and inside the very walls of some of the largest churches you have heard about or perhaps the very one you attend.

Every breath you take is an act of war against the children of Satan, every un-believer alive today.  This Revolution demands your single-minded commitment and a total disregard for all the criticisms of people who enjoy to slander you – and they will do it using your faith and belief system in a mocking fashion to mock you.  Since they mocked Christ, you can count on it, they will mock you.

You cannot bow to them, you cannot bend.  You can only answer to the Commander in Chief and only to Him will you be required to give an explanation for your choice.

Are you willing to do whatever you have to do to prove that you fear God, you love Him, and you serve Him — yes, that you live only for Him?

That is the commitment of a Christian Revolutionary.
