Lord I Wonder Why?…In this year of reestablishing ORDER, in ministry, business, and personal lives, there have been many revelations, heartbreaks, disappointments, betrayals, and assassination attempts. The experience did however help me to better understand a question I have had for some time. My question was “Lord I Wonder Why?” so many Christians are bipolar and schizophrenic symptomatically in their presentations on Facebook and other social media venues. One minute they are up, the next down, happy then sad, loving then mad, friends then enemies, praising each other and then cursing each other. I came to realize in a more excellent way the truth in “Hurting People, Hurt People”. Therefore when we as Christians hurt or have needed comforting and love, there has been a shortage of authentic love and sensitivity in the Body of Christ for each other’s plight. So left alone in pain and isolation, the best of Christian Warriors can slip off into their own private internalized psychosis, and spiral down into an abyss of depression or silent spiritually suicidal frustration, and no one in their environment including the ones they love the most pick up on the symptoms. So the only place for the isolated hurting saint to cry out in the natural is behind the false sense of security, of the protective wall of social media.
However it is a crisis of epidemic proportion in Christendom, and we MUST URGENTLY do something to restore authentic Love, and concern for each other back to the place of highest priority in the ranks of the church. I thank God for this year’s experiences, as it taught me now more than ever to TRUST in the IMMUTABLE characteristics of God’s Love towards US. His Love for US is “A SURE THING”, and He has promised and solidified our VICTORY! In a time where everyone is trying to declare who is saved or not, who is right or not, who is authentically in office or not, it is good to know that you have the Holy Spirit Inside of You, and even if the people you look to for support and love don’t seem to know who you are in Christ, you should give God the highest praise for
2 Timothy 2:19
19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, THE LORD KNOWETH them that are his!
So early this morning, I just want to thank Godforsaving my soul, and rescuing me from the hands of my enemies. HE KNOWS ME, what a testimony in the face of adversity. Have no fear, there is no bipolar or schizophrenia here, I dance in the presence of mine enemies, and laugh at the faces of our adversaries for the victories we have already won this year. I give him even higher praise for the coming year of obtaining, and manifesting DESTINY’S Promises! Sorry haters, our testimony has not changed, WE will continue, to “FIGHT and WIN, In the name of JESUS, OUR KING!…The CHURCH is in the process of a comeback…EXPECT US!!! Now give your God some real Praise and have a better day!…Kingdom Blessings…++Joshua Paul
