The wisdom of the age does not teach you how to know God. What is the wisdom of the age? For our generation it is religion, politics and science. All three of these areas of society have operated in natural humanistic thinking and all three of these areas have amplified voices in order to keep us natural, when God has created us to be supernatural. One of the questions people ask me is, how come miracles happen in other countries more easily than in ours? One of the reasons is because culturally, the West is very scientific in our approach to life, whereas in other nations they do not have the luxury of “higher education” or “the best hospitals” so they rely on the Holy Spirit and the power of God to heal their bodies.
The cultural atmosphere over a nation actually hinders or helps release the manifestation of the kingdom of God. As believers we have been given authority to “bind and loose”, which means our words have power. When we echo what the political, religious or the scientific narrative of the age is declaring, we actually give it permission and authority to operate in our nation. Our words are that powerful. The reason revelation, demonstration and manifestion, does not happen is not because God does not want to release it to us, it is because we are loosing through our echo, the narrative of the nation, not binding it by not echoing it.
Jesus commissioned us in Matthew 28 to disciple nations, one way we do this is by not echoing the narrative of the age, but the narrative of the kingdom. Paul said it this way in 1 Corinthians 2 “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.” Our call is to echo the narrative of the kingdom, in prayer, decrees, prophesy and every day conversations. This is how we bind the narrative of the age in our nation and loose the gospel of the kingdom. My friends this is how we change the atmosphere over a nation and see more manifestations of healing, deliverance, and salvation.
