It’s true that Jesus actually prayed for His entire Church Body. Why, because Jesus knew that Christians would need prayer because the world would reject Him and His message. This is the reason todays’ Christians need to activate their spiritual power. Yes, today a large portion of people reject God’s Word for their own religious message.
The reason is easy: many churches weakly lift Jesus, yet ignore
casting Satan down so everyone is comfortable. Apostle Paul broadcasted Jesus’ message so true believers, the Body of Christ could tell the world. God will not allow temptation beyond what we are able, but will make a way of escape, (1 Corinthians 10:13). Also, Apostle John said he who is born of God over comes the world in victory, (1 John 5:4-5). Paul also adds a really strong point: our weapons of warfare are mighty in pulling down strongholds and all things that exalts itself against God, (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). Jesus also added, we would be challenged as a Christians, but not be complacent, but accept and defeat our challenges.
No, God did not create us to lay down when things are shaky; He wants us to advance knowing we have total advantage. This fits an old saying that says: “If you continue to do what you have always done you will continue to get what you always got, so is that what you really want”? If we claim to be Christians and are a part of the body of Christ; we need to replace any passive modes with a new aggressive mode! The time in history we now live in requires being counted, and helping to increase our churches for Jesus and focus on victories to accomplish the impossible so world can see the body of Christ in real action!
Not that many years ago Christians were what children wanted to become, so what happened? Well, there are four elements we might want to remember: 1) Jesus already defeated Satan so we didn’t battle Satan physically, but spiritually. 2) Jesus gives all true Believers the spiritual authority over Satan and we knew Satan had no authority and we used our spiritual authority against his lies. 3) Jesus gave all Believers His own Ministry of Reconciliation, meaning all Believers already have the same ministry and calling Jesus had, (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).
This occurs when Christian’s search, with a love for their calling expecting spiritual power and authority, knowing they are part of one total body spread around the world. Yes, God is right now in process of positioning His Churches to move forward and take the land to increase His kingdom so that He can return. Hebrews 12:1-2 says: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by a great witnesses (testimony of truth), let us throw aside our encumbrance of sin which entangles us, and run with endurance our race set before us, looking away (from distracting) to Jesus, Who is leader and our Source of faith and Finisher for the joy (prize) set before Him at the right hand of God.
