Arise: A Poem

There is so much dissension, division, violence, hatred, fear, sorrow, and despair in our country right now. It is time for the Church, the Bride of Christ, to stand together in unity. Because of the power and authority that has been given to us by Jesus Christ we do not have to sit by idly and let the enemy steal, kill, and destroy our country.

As the Church, we have to see rightly.

We are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).

The Lord told me a while ago that when your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke the spirit behind their action and pray for them (Matthew 5:44) because they have opened a door to enemy to work in and through them.

It is time that we stop fighting our brothers and sisters. I’m not saying that they shouldn’t reap the consequences of their actions (See Galatians 6:7). However, I am saying that we need to stand together in unity and fight our true enemy: Satan. We are either going to stand united or fall divided because a kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation (Matthew 12:25).

We need to tell our brothers and sisters of the hope that we have found in Jesus. We need to love, teach and disciple them. We need to be the church Jesus commissioned us to be. We need to keep the Word of God when it’s hard, when we don’t want to, and even when we don’t understand. Be encouraged. Jesus died for all people. God is for us. He will deliver us, restore us, and heal us.
