The altar of politically correct thinking is the place where the church is now placing some of its most precious truths to be sacrificed so that it does not have to bear the reproach of the world around it and in some cases the world within it. Do you see what reproach is these days? Have you noticed the power and effect that is has on the people of the world as well as the church? Has it escaped your notice how quickly governments around the nation and the world began to walk in lock step as “one world” to deal with current events?

Now is the time for believers to “Stand Tall” not stand down. You may say to me well brother, I am praying for the Lord to heal and to raise up and to make things better and I would say that’s good and even better if it’s one on one personal ministry but my point is not our individual calling and responsibility but our corporate responsibly as His people in the earth in this hour to step back and see the “big picture”. Until we see “as one” what the enemy of our faith is after we have no real ground for effective prayer over the situation in the world.

The “bigger picture” is what lies behind things, what are the implications so far as the Church is concerned? We must not just accept this present world situation as merely a tragic and difficult moment of history and the natural course of things here on earth. There is something at the heart of this thing which has endtime implications. Our adversary has an “endgame” and this moment has the feel of a “dress rehearsal” to prepare all the nations of the world to move together in the future to oppose the Church.

If you have your spiritual eyes wide open, then your focus is not simply how events effect people but how they may come to affect the church. The “greater good” that suspends rights to gather can in the future be used to limit the freedom of Gods people around the world. When we clearly see events both now and in the future from this perspective and bring these things before the Throne of God and cry as “One Church”, then our enemy will be defeated as we make our case in the spiritual war room and defend our rights in the Heavenly Court.

Eph 6:12 (ampclassic) ” For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere”
