Are Christians Conservatives?
In Matthew 5:3 Messiah says, “For theirs is the kingdom.” Not theirs “will be,” but theirs “is.” The kingdom belongs to the children of God – now. Heaven and earth are connected. We can’t truly own anything on earth because it’s temporal. The only things we can and are supposed to own are heavenly possessions. It’s okay to be possessive about heaven. The Scripture says “Rejoice for your reward is great in heaven.” You should know what you own in heaven and rejoice in it. Rejoice because your name’s in the Lamb’s book of life. The reason we get possessive of earthly thing is because we’re not possessing things in heaven. Rejoice over what you have in heaven and you won’t be possessive about earth or covet what you don’t have. Start realizing you own a piece of heaven, more than a piece, the whole kingdom. You’re rich. You’re blessed. That’s enough to live a life of joy and let go of petty, earthly and temporary things. Because you have something so much better. Live as someone who’s rich, blessed and joyous. For yours, yes yours, is the kingdom of heaven.
She followed Paul, and us says, Luke, and cried out repeatedly saying, these men are bond servants of the most high god who are proclaiming you a way of salvation.
Now she continued doing this for many days, but Paul was greatly annoyed.
He turned around and said to the spirit, I command you in the name of yeshua.
Jesus, the Messiah come out of her. And it came out that very instant. Interesting.
She’s speaking the truth. She’s saying these are the servants of the most high now.
Interesting because there’s a number of pagans and people from outside who referred to in the Bible who didn’t know god as as the people of god to god, they refer to god, the true god as the god most high interest.
So why she’s saying it what’s right?
Because the very fact She’s a woman possessed by demonic spirit and for her to give her condoning of it is linking her to that is leaking this dark realm to them.
So it’s bringing confusion. Why Paul put up with it for days? We don’t know.
But he finally got annoyed. Sometimes God can use getting annoyed. Most of getting annoyed is not from the Lord.
Don’t go that way. I have a an anointing of getting annoyed.
But why we don’t know, but he cast the spirit out of her. Now look what happens.
But when her master saw that their hope of prophet was suddenly gone, they seize Paul and silas and drag them into the marketplace before the authorities.
This is very significant here for our days. Note what happened.
The woman’s a slave, her her demonic power is being used exploited by her masters to make money.
You’ve got slavery, you got demonic realm, and you got money.
When Paul casts out the demonic spirit, the woman’s free. But her masters lose their income.
So they come against Paul and silas. This brings up something very significant.
Most bible believing born again Christians would be considered now conservative.
Ultimately, and primarily, we are in we are beyond that. We are not of this world.
We are of a kingdom that is beyond this world, and that is beyond politics, above it, and forever.
But depending on our circumstances, our culture, our times, there are issues where we may be closer to one label than another.
In the days of Rome and Pagan, believers were not conservative. They were revolutionary.
If they were conservative, they would be with the traditions of the Pagan world. They were not.
They weren’t trying to preserve something tradition. They were trying to change it. They were radical.
Now we’re always to be radical no matter what. We’re always to be revolutionary.
But, uh, you know, so in that but now we live in a day when the surrounding culture and civilization is racing away from god.
Is racing away from the Bible, racing away from everything that it knew as, quote, Christian civilization or Judeo Christian.
So believers find themselves. We find ourselves more and more in the realm of conservatism because we are against the change that is apostasy.
Not because there’s something about conservatives, only because we’re saying you’re going the wrong way.
Holding on to men trying to uphold many of the things that are being abandoned now or overturned or raced away from, that is that is the reason for it.
But that doesn’t mean that every traditionally conservative issue is Christian. Or align with the Bible.
Some things may be neutral. Some things may be wrong.
If you go all the way politically to one side or the other, you’re gonna end up in darkness.
Let me tell you what. If you go all the way left, you’re gonna end up with socialism and communism.
If you go all the way to the right, you’ll end up with fascism.
We’re not to the right or to the left, we’re above.
But we recognize also that increasingly there’s been a growing convergence right now, at least for the moment, between much of conservatism and people of faith, and as in the issue of life, the unborn.
The issue of the new morality, Wokism, overturning of marriage, overturning of morality, the lgbt agenda, indoctrination children religious liberty and on and on and on.
We can walk together with any movement that will be in agreement with god’s way for the time that it agrees.
Any party may turn away from god at any moment as well. Our trust is not in parties.
