We are born into a vast world and have to figure out how to win.
Because there is much we do not know, we need faith to push forward (Hebrews 11:1).
Our dreams, thoughts, and intuition point to an unseen, spirit and parent world governed by a God of love, law, and order, and opposed by an adversary (Isaiah 9:6).
God gave us liberty to choose right or wrong, in part so that He can judge and place us fairly at the end of our lives (2 Corinthians 5:10). After all, life is a test. And the purpose of life is to desire no distance from God.
We innately know the difference between right and wrong. Right creates order and closeness to God, which is life. Wrong creates disorder and distance from God, which is death (Romans 12:2).
As we choose right through submission to Jesus Christ He gives us authority over all adversarial powers (Luke 10:19).
God saw that the first humans disobeyed His instructions as some still do today. So by His Spirit He formed Himself into Yeshua, Jesus Christ, to legally pay for the wrongdoing, which required shed blood (Genesis 3:15). That is because the consequence of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
Together, as we study God's word, prophesy, and evangelize, we celebrate His merciful decision to save us. We also share the human pain of that sacrifice. He was brutally crucified, and by the power of His Holy Spirit He rose again (Thessalonians 4:14).
Loving God unlocks our individual kingdom purpose (Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11). He anoints us with gifts of His Holy Spirit for that purpose.
"But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit (good) of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy (speaking God's message), to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills," (1 Corinthians 12: 7-11).
Since God's invisible kingdom increases through winning the hearts of mankind rather than gaining physical landmass, we evangelize (Deuteronomy 10:16). "As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry," -2 Timothy 4:5.
We are leaders led by the Holy Spirit to do the will of the Father on the earth. And we rejoice in the peace of choosing God, right, and order.
