“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12
God is calling His people into battle. He needs some “violent” soldiers NOW. Christians need to rise up so that their witness shines in the dark places. A sleeping church is worse than no church at all.
In Ezekiel 37, God led the prophet to the valley of dry bones and told him to prophesy life. Yes…LIFE. When the prophet obeyed, things began to happen. Life gives way to life. They army began to take shape by a prophetic word from God.
So do not be dried up, without hope, and cut off like the bones spoken of in Ezekiel 37:11. Instead, become soft and pliable, with hope and destiny, plugged into your Source of Life, for the Lord says, in Verse 14: “And [I] shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live…”
Matthew 11:12 in the NIV says it this way: “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.
JOIN the vibrant, violent, forceful army that God is raising up today! THERE ARE NO DRAFTEES.
Heavenly Father, I believe I have been too timid in the past. Please put Your Spirit into me today so that I can be counted a member of Your violent volunteer army speaking LIFE into dry bones all around me. IN Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.”
