As we, God’s people, consider the ruling political climate that is being uncovered and revealed to the populace of our country, we see it’s true existing condition. In this, a standing-up and taking notice should be our response and consideration. While many conditions existing today are simply continuations of conditions from the past, most have been ignored and overlooked, causing them to increase and enlarge. In this, we understand that having eyes to see we should be seeing and having ears to hear we should be hearing. But, for the most part these conditions have remained purposely hidden from the eyes of most of the people.
In this environment, corruption has been allowed to remain and increase. This increase, as it continues today, seems to be at an accelerated pace to involve every aspect of the political arena. In this, it seemingly knows that it has but a short time to remain. Also, even as it has been declared by God, exposure is now upon the land. This exposure is according to God’s purpose. A purpose for bringing judgment unto creation with a righteous cause in mind. This judgment is being used to expose the corruption while giving opportunity for change. A needed change to be brought about, but only as the church awakens to its true purpose and responsibility in the earth. Not only to awaken, but to humble themselves before God, ask for forgiveness and allow Him to bring complete restoration, the need, stop resisting change.
This time of restoration, being offered to us with opportunity, is now among us as it starts within God’s true people. Herein, by taking a stand in God, it will begin affecting the political arena. In this we, God’s people, must give an account to the position we have taken. The past position, having a life-style of complacency, while excepting worldly influences as they increasingly permeate the church systems. This position, with acceptance allows corruption without resistance so the church can maintain its religious status. This position cements the church into having only a form of godliness while denying of the power of God, the fruit of lifestyles lived.
2 Tim. 3:1-5, “This know also, that in the last days perilous [hard, difficult, grievous] times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God; having a form [external form] of godliness, but denying the power [inherent power; the power of reproducing itself]; from such turn away”.
In the above scripture, which comes from a letter written to the existing church, it declares that in the “last days”, these conditions would exist among the people. It is the same people that call themselves a part of the church but have allowed themselves to drift away from its true purpose. What then is the church’s true purpose? Is it not to be a light spoken into the earth to lighten up the world of darkness to its true purpose? In this, according to God’s created purposes, has the church not fallen short? Has the glory that God purposed to reveal through the church, as given on the day of Pentecost, departed? Heb. 3:12, “Take heed [to have the power of seeing, to observe accurately and with desire], brethren, lest [expressing conditional negation] there be in any of you an evil [full of labors and pains in working mischief; evil intent] heart of unbelief, in departing [fallen away] from the living God”.
Could it not be, that with the many accusations being passed around during this time from among our political arena, that a revealing and uncovering of the existing corruption is taking place? Is it not so that greater corruption, for the most part, has been hidden away from the public eye to deceive them? Corrupt politicians and appointees in all three levels of our democratic government (the executive, legislative and judicial branches) are being uncovered and exposed. Everyday events concerning this corruption are happening at such an accelerated pace as never seen before in our day. The uprooting of this evil is an appointed time when God is allowing the people to see, observe and become ashamed of these evidential corrupt persons who have taken advantage of the system of democracy. That is, there are a people who are recognizing the corruption and are responding with a heart to see the corrupt ones removed from power and influence. A time for correction and change is now an opportunity given us.
In this season of judgment concerning creation, God’s people, called the church, must awaken to also see the order of sinfulness and corruption that exist among the Christian community. Why? Because God has spoken that judgment begins in the house of God. Why? Because God also finds it necessary to wash and cleanse His house, the unclean Church. The stated reason is that the church, His temple, might become His true dwelling place. Scripture states and clarifies for us a condition God is recognizing as being among the church. In this, God also recognizes that among the church some are willing and longing for change.
Eph. 5:5-17, “For this ye know [receive] that no whoremonger [spiritual fornicator], nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words [spoken, not the product] for because of [against or opposite] these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes [once] darkness [of blindness], but now are ye light [having received the light, they are light], for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth. Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord: And have no fellowship [partnership] with the unfruitful works [dead works, wicked works] of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest [brought to light] by the light: For whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, awake [rouse from sleep] thou that sleeps [not awake], and arise [stand up, rise again] from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly [accurately, precisely, exactly], not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil [full of labors and pains in working mischief, evil intent]. Wherefore be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”.
God’s people should know and understand that His will and purpose is and always has been, to raise up a many member man to become His dwelling place. A place for His rest to manifest fully, through His sons, the establishing of His eternal kingdom here on earth. In this purpose, to find His place of rest, His dwelling place must be completely cleansed of all corruption. Eph. 2:22 states, “In whom ye also are built together for [when each part reaches or touches – a meeting of the creator and His created people of the new creation] a habitation of God through the Spirit [denotes the giver, distinct from His gifts]”. Herein, God through the Christ plans to live. That is, living in a people birthed to become even as the planted seed, Jesus Christ, was and is. Being birthed into the heavenly order of life as it manifest as God’s dwelling place. That means, a birthing into the throne-room authority and glory of God. A glory that will cleanse and establish God’s kingdom throughout all His creation.
Rev. 12:1-5, “And there appeared [to perceive with the eyes] a great wonder in [being or remaining, the idea of rest and continuance] heaven [God’s dwelling place – even in man]; a woman [purified church that has received the seed called Christ], clothed with the sun [God’s glory], and the moon under her feet [has gained victory over the carnal church system], and upon her head a crown of twelve stars [order of God’s divine government of perfection, completeness]: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appear another wonder in heaven, and behold, a great red dragon [note Rev. 13;1] ……stood before the women which was ready to be delivered for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child [the many member first-fruit body of Christ] who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up [away] unto God [the place or realm of God’s throne-room authority] and to His throne”. A set of verses depicting the birthing of God’s many sons who come out of the corruption of this carnal world to dwell and live in God’s governmental world, manifesting His nature.
Herein we can see the need of the hour. A time for a birthing to take place which is preceded by a judgment which purifies the church. The need, to cleanse and deliver her from all the corruption that dwells within and among her. A corruption that is mirrored by the corruption and the uncovering of all political corruption as revealed in this season of correction and change. God is moving to reveal and cleanse the earth even as He reveals and cleanses the Christian community. The greater purpose, to build for Himself a dwelling place. In this the call is, prepare thyself, for God has purposed a cleansing.
Eph. 3:17-21, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts [soul of man – the mind, will, emotions and desires] by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able [fully able] to comprehend with all saints what is the breath, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge [learned by acquired knowledge or experience], they ye might be filled [to fulfill, accomplished] with all the fullness of God. Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding, abundantly [of infinitely] above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worked in us. Unto Him be glory in the church [read Eph. 3:10] by Jesus Christ throughout all ages, world without end”.
Speaking of God’s church, purposed to be cleansed and birthed into the earth as an appearing of the fullness of Him. This speaks of His members, those who fill-up the body of Christ, the birthed man-child. In this, the body of Christ fills up and completes the dispensational fullness of times. This is God’s eternal purpose which the enemy of God has sought, from the beginning, to corrupt. The enemy seeks to keep the church from being without spot or blemish.
Let’s remember, the political arena as we have known it today is but a mirror for God’s people to see and know the condition, the corruption, that has permeated the church order. In this, know that the time of God’s cleansing is upon us. Movement has begun, opportunity for the political arena to know a cleansing is upon America and the world. Likewise, the church is being cleansed and is becoming a manifestation through the birthing of God’s man-child company that is upon us. The purpose is to purify the church to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. In this, know and consider, God set the church in the earth to manifest the heavens upon the earth. But the enemy of God has side-tracked the church to spend their days trying to get to heaven (remember the tower of Babel). But, with heaven being within, the heavens within you and I are to manifest the heavens of God here on the earth through the earth (man’s body) that we are. In this, conditions, conditions, conditions are all around us but with purpose. To cleanse and manifest the glory of God in all the earth.
Rev. 11:15, “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdom [sovereignty] of our Lord and His Christ [the anointed ones, the head and the many member body]; and He shall reign for ever and ever”. Is God’s trumpet and these great voices not sounding? Surely a day is upon us and it is at hand.
