With all that is going on in our nation and in the world, can you believe that tomorrow, October 31st marks the 500th anniversary that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis on the door of the Church? That started the Protestant Reformation!
Many prophetic voices have spoken about this anniversary in months past...about this being a time of another reformation...we are due!
In Martin Luther's Day, sin and corruption were rampant, immorality was destroying the family, and "truth" was whatever influential people said it was. Sound familiar?
Our nations are a reflection of the churches or ekklesias within them and we, not our government, are responsible for the state of our nation. We, the church, have given the enemy the legal right to create a government and a nation in which so much corruption and poverty are rampant. And it has happened on our watch!
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot." Mt. 5:13
Today’s newsletter features an article and manifesto by Mike and Cindy Jacobs entitled “500TH ANNIVERSARY OF REFORMATION”. Mike and Cindy write:
“Reformation began with the sound of a hammer. On this 500th anniversary, we declare that a new season of Reformation has begun.”
“The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will love as Christ loved. We will stand for Truth as it is written in the Word of God, the Bible, and in so doing will shift our countries toward righteousness and justice in our homes, churches, areas of governmental authority, in the marketplace, financial arena and business, in educational systems and schools, in arts and entertainment, and in media. As we carry forth His Gospel, we will see this prayer of Jesus made manifest:”
"Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven." (Mt. 6:10)
We encourage you to read this VERY important word “THE REFORMATION MANIFESTO 2017” with vital prayer points and declarations. We suggest you print out and share this with others at your place of business and church.
It IS our job as the Church of Jesus Christ to BE the change that we want to see in our nations. If WE, the church, do not change, the nation will not change. We need to become a new wineskin – change and reformation must start with us.
Friend, God is calling you to step into something greater: you were not saved to go to heaven; you were saved to bring heaven to earth!
