What cause do you champion?

Posted by appolus on June 26, 2020

Hi saints. How many of us know that love of country is not the same as love of God? In America we see a very unhealthy mixture of love of country or love of culture with the love of God. There can be no mixture. Wait Frank, are you saying that it is wrong to love one’s country? Are you saying it is wrong to love my culture or my race? What I am saying brothers and sisters is that there can be no competition for the seat of our affections. Jesus must have all of our heart, all of it. No matter where a saint lives, if it is difficult or if it is easy, when God calls us to leave it behind we must be willing to do that. In this day and age when it seems so clear that the Lord is coming, we must hold all things loosely, all things. He cannot have all of our heart if much of our heart is caught up in the raging issues of the day.

Love of country or love of race is not the province of the child of God. The child of God’ eye is on Jesus and on the Kingdom that is and was and is to come. That is why we are sojourners and ambassadors for Jesus and His Kingdom. This is the kingdom that presently dwells in our hearts. To be wrapped up in a political war or a cultural war is to be AWOL (absent without official leave) from the real war, the war of light against darkness. The war against principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places.

When the Lord calls you out of Babylon, will you be so enamored of the things of Babylon that you will not be able to leave? When Lot’s wife had to leave Sodom, did it go well for her? What about when it was time to leave Babylon and return to Jerusalem after 70 short years, did most leave? The comforts of Babylon were too much for most, they would rather stay where they were than join the remnant people in the difficult place. A place where they were surrounded by enemies as they attempted to re-build the temple. Only one third of the Jews living in exile in Babylon left for home when they had the opportunity.

Those who chose to follow God in our day, follow Him and Him alone, whether they are black or white, will be deemed to be traitors to”their own.” We must have our identity in Christ and Christ alone. When we have that then we transcend partisanship and cultural backgrounds. We are a brotherhood, we are a royal priesthood, and in that alone we should find our identity under the Lord Jesus Christ. Will you fight for your race? Your culture? Your national identity? Where can that possible end be if the races retreat into their own corners? A house divided cannot stand. What house do you belong to? Is your house a cultural one? A national one? Or do you belong to the house of God? You cannot belong to two households, you will only be loyal to one.

Running with the crowd, no matter what that crowd stands for, is to run against God. You are a pilgrim on this earth, a sojourner. We are traveling through this world on our way home down a narrow path. The problem is, most confessing Christians do not believe that. They have joined camps. permanent camps. And each camp has its own interests which rarely if ever align with other camps. And so we war, it is what warring camps do. What has any of that to do with God? Culture wars, political wars, race wars. All of the devils making and none of it has anything to do with God. There is one God, He has one people, one Christ and one Kingdom. If you belong to any other camp, no matter the emotional appeal, you are in a state of backsliding. Separate yourself and only ever bow the knee to God even under pain of death.

    And don’t look back…unless you crave the taste of salt.

  2. Amen brother. Christ is our All in all. He is our country, our race, our home, our nation, our Kingdom, our identity, the One to whom we are loyal, to whom we owe our complete allegiance, the One and only cause that we rally for. He is our All. Christ and Christ alone. We have been crucified to this world and it’s systems – political, religious, educational, cultural, and everything of it. And it has all been crucified to us.
