I was looking around at how things were going for us Christians from a spiritual view, and I wondered if our spiritual views were being of assistance to us in our day-to-day lives. I mean, what do we do with our spiritual views all day long? How do they really advance our cause other than being views that we rally around on worship days, sick days, or days when we have a need? I present to you Father’s view from my perspective: I am sure that we are selling ourselves short. What chance does our spiritual views have in assisting us to “BE” fruitful, and to “HAVE” dominion in this world’s system when we only use them to rally around each other? We need to “BE” And “HAVE” greater application, and implementation of our spiritual views to show the world why we are so devoted to our heavenly Father.
I was sitting in the Godhead conference room again today replaying the meeting that the Godhead was having when they first released the plan for man right off the press. If you want to re-visit that meeting again also, it is kept in the conference room file called the Bible, in Genesis 1:28. The main two words that you will get from that section of the minutes from that meeting are “BE” and “Have.” You and I are to “Be” fruitful, and “Have” dominion in and over every area of our lives. When I look around, we are not really “Being” or “Having” fruitfulness or dominion over the areas of our lives. The world’s systems dominates all natural areas of our lives, but we can and should be able to do more for our cause by increasing our implementation of the kingdom’s system. Now, wait a minute, I didn’t say that we didn’t have any Christians being successful in their lives. I would be guilty as charged. It was very easy for me to be successful in the business world: I was always in the top sales people, managers, customer service, or whatever I was doing in the world system. Oh, what did I just say, in the world’s system. However, I didn’t say in the world’s system using my spiritual views, but in the world’s system using its views. Here lies the initial statement that I made, how are the spiritual views that I believe in so much assisting me in my day-to-day living if I primarily operate on the views of the world’s system?
I believe that Father God has all power in his hand, but the people of the world’s system have most of the power in their hands. The world’s system is not leaving its followers without power, my God, it’s not even leaving God’s people without power. If you poll all Christians that are doing good in their lives, I’m not a betting man, but I would take these odds on any day that most of those Christians are successful more because of the world’s system than they are because of their spiritual views. If you don’t believe me, since God is no respecter of person, take away the majority of those Christians college education, trade, and special training. Then tell them to go live the same life: they wouldn’t know where to start without their five-year plan. The world’s system will reward anyone as long as you do it the way of the world. Now, I’m not saying that it is evil or bad to live in this system because by default we live in this world’s system. I’m just saying that we are selling our selves short if we only live by this system. We have to learn how to implement our primary system from God, and operate in the world’s system as our legal spring-board to the greater. I like to paraphrase it from something similar that Jesus said: render therefore from the world’s system the things which are of the world’s system; and from the Kingdom the things that are from the Kingdom. I know that everything starts from the natural, but our greater help should end with the spiritual moving on our part when all else fells. We for so long have depended on the things that we can see to be the place where the buck stops. We talk a good talk for the spiritual, but our actions show over and over that the world’s system carries our buck.
Who are you going to call when this system of the world has processed you to a point where it can’t help you with a particular problem. Of course, we are going to call on God, but that’s just about all that we can do. We have been so dependent on the world’s system that we wouldn’t know how to instantly transition to the Kingdom’s system to satisfy our need. Father God is waiting for more of us to become more skilled in the area of extending into the things of the kingdom after the world system leaves us short. It is Father time! Father wants us to stop selling ourselves short, and to follow the initial plan set forth at that great meeting of the God head way back in the beginning: “BE” fruitful AND “HAVE” dominion.
