The following is an excerpt from my newest book soon to be released titled “Avoiding Spiritual Mediocrity ” which deals with many issues in society and our churches. There is a current promoting of a sense that if mediocre Christians inhabit the Church it will not be a force to be concerned with against evils yet to be unleashed. This is the first of three parts that will try to enlighten you to the fact you are in God’s eyes as one whom He has aligned to a force He says is to be on earth.
The early Church, somewhere around the 3 century AD, began to move away from its Christian foundation as it found new hope in the plutonic of allegories and paganisms rooted in plagiarized philosophies that would become content for religious doctrines. Doctrines were not founded upon a literal biblical sense, but on a newfound nuance of intellectual control as divisions and sects of various testaments began to pop up over the centuries each stated they viewed their doctrine as more right than the others. Thus, ignorance to the liability of knowing the truth began among congregants.
What was formally discerned as the Church by Israel in the early days, as from an all-powerful God, was now discerned by leadership as relevant to denominational statutes founded upon the religious controls they sought to prosper from. And by invoking inclusive ideals and opting out of cultural diversity spiritual mediocrity found its way in this profound philosophical era and is today strewn among all the now varied denominational elements of the Church. The fact each of these have structured their own outlines by articles of faith protecting beliefs inherent to defend by-laws reveals they have created one of the greatest works of deception concerning God’s plan for His spiritual lineage.
Most of you know or should know that Adam’s actions relinquished the sovereign power endowed to him by God, and rendered all of mankind’s spiritual dominion to a curse. This is a dominion ordained by God before He created us. Gen 1:28 (ASV) And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. This dominance was in this case to be active on the earth over all God declared to be under it, and still present and purposed to do battle against evil’s appearance even today.
To understand how this dominance is to work we need to know that it is the sovereignty of God as a wholly supernatural force of authority and power to enact whatever He chooses upon this earth according to the work of the Spirit of God. And this spiritual dominion was to be exerted here by His subordinate offspring those who have a measure of sovereignty passed on to them to participate as His seed for a continuous operation of blessings upon all creation. With one exclusion, humanity itself will have no power of dominion over another person, as each has been given by God a free will to exercise authority over self only.
Transferring that power to the curse as God decreed resulted in rendering all of humanity under an influence of an evil-natured enemy, the devil. And ever since then events having an evil intent behind them taking place, no matter the level of any wickedness revealed has semblance to the evils he works on earth. Which today is on display the likes of which we have never seen before. This brings to light the importance of all the children of God knowing the truth about who they are and how they can stand against this enemy being equipped with a supernatural force beyond understanding.
These bastions of doctrines represent a very large portion of this spiritual force God calls the Church that has always had at its disposal an all-mighty range of supernatural power to work against this enemy and every force of darkness he controls. But a sense of fear appears to be rising up from many as leadership within them takes on a submissive role to the verbal rants that represent the results of decades of tolerance and ignorance. An ignorance purposely kept in place in order to edify doctrines rather than scriptural truths keeping believers unaware of an inherited right as a son or daughter of the Highest God.
You knowing these truths will make it clear there is a revelation to be known that goes beyond humanity’s purpose of procreation into an eternal age that God perceived would be fully present on earth. One He requires every one of His children to be fully conscious of and trained up to fulfill. This truth is not about ministry or witness or testimony, however, they are all excerpts that must come from it. But not many believers know there is a manner of spirit to appear in those He proclaims as His lineage that is to be aligned to the Spirit of God. John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
If you are born again then you are what the preceding verse says, a son or daughter of God. And born again for a purpose that is beyond anything you know or currently understands but revealed in the fact that God’s children are not to be controlled by doctrines of men but fully conscious of who they are as God has described them to be.
