TOPIC: You Are Created To Distrupt World Systems
SCRIPTURE: “And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also.” Acts 17:6 KJV
MESSAGE: Beloved, if you are going to shake the table of the world system, you must have understanding that we are not going in there, doubting. Our weapons will always work. As a new creation in Christ, there is power at work in you that shakes and disrupts system. Paul disrupted the system in Thessalonica in Acts chapter 17 and shook down the tables of occultism in Ephesus in Chapter 19. Suddenly, they wanted to chase him out of town because of what he was carrying. Little wonder he said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation for everyone that believes”.
Child of God, the gospel is God’s power and it is the message we carry that the world needs. It is the only message that can penetrate body, soul and spirit. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow…” (Hebrews 4:12 KJV).
Don’t be afraid of this message. Carry the gospel anywhere you go; that’s what will silence the world and the kingdom of hell. One of the virtues needed to disrupt the world system is boldness; a holy audacity. In Mark 15:43, Joseph of Arimathea entered boldly to make his request before Pilate. It takes boldness to make such demands because Jesus was just crucified.
You can’t disrupt systems without boldness. When you know what you carry, you will look the enemies eyeball to eyeball and refuse to be threatened. When you know what you carry, you will make your request boldly. Attending services and listening to the Word of God increase your boldness. At this level of your Christian life, you should be the one looking for the devil to destroy his kingdom and not the other way round.
