Who Are You Crying Up To?

November 12, 2018

We are living in a world that is in a crisis, individually, and communal, families are in a crisis and our democratic system is in a volatile mess. I will go as far to say there is a religious epidemic that is misleading people in a direction that God has not called for. We have many standing in the pulpit leading yet, not believing, then we marvel at the current condition. There is some good news, the current situation is not an end it is an opportunity for God to manifest himself, so the world may experience his redeeming quality.
 
No matter where you live in the United States you are either a part of the problem or you are on the battlefield not for your own benefit but, on behalf of someone who has no voice. As finite people, we do not have the ability to solve the world’s problems by ourselves. As much as we try, we cannot end the homeless population, we can not figure out what is going on with our government why our senior’s having to go work after retiring. The Apostle Paul said God brings us closer to death so we can come to know the only one who can raise the dead. That is the good news. But there is more to this news. When God wants us to know him in his greatness, he will create a crisis that will force you to yield to him.
 
David is a good example of a person in a situation, the Hebrew people is another example, lets being this thing closer to home. Twelve people out having fun dancing gunned down dead, children held hostage in their school because there is a shooter running around by the school. Thirty-thousand votes not counted in one state four days after elections. In one state African Americans not allowed to vote. People attending church have been disillusioned by the state of the church. The state of the religious institutions is related to the lack of knowledge of Gods statues and the conditions which we should be calling on him to intervene.
 
When Israel stood at the edge of the Red Sea they began to cry up to God. Whereas, before they were crying to each other. In many ways, people are crying to each other. We are at the Red Sea the problem is we are still crying and complaining to each other instead of crying to the only one who can raise the dead.

Apostle Carrie Mitchell
Matthew 25:21 NKJV...and the Lord said unto him... ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.’
