Lip Service

Over the years, in downtown LA, I have met with, talked with and prayed with Transgenders. And I find out that…

Some say they always knew they are Transgender.
Some say they have been Transgender since birth.

Some show me their Transgender clothes, shoes and makeup.
Some point to their Transgender tattoo, necklace or ring.
Some actually have a Transgender app on their phone.

Some talk about the LGBTQ support group that they go to.
Some mention the LGBTQ organization they belong to.
Some talk about certain Transgenders they follow on social media.

Thinking how you look on the outside will convince others that you are.
Transgender.

I have no problem telling new people I meet, that I am a Christian.
Usually when I say that, they respond with “I am a Christian too.”
And I find out that…

Some say they always knew they are Christian.
Some say they have been Christian since birth.

Some show me their Christian tattoos.
Some point to the cross around their neck.
Some actually have a Bible app on their phone.

Some talk about the Church that they go to.
Some mention the Christian organization they belong to.
Some talk about certain Christians they follow on social media.

Thinking how you look on the outside will convince others that you are.
TransChristian.

Forgive Us Father that We the Church can say and look like We are Christians.
But sometimes Our words are just lip service. And those who know how We actually live…See it.

Forgive Us Father when We the Church lash out in anger and hate to those who are struggling with Identity. After all, We did at one time too. (Ephesians 4:17-19)

Forgive Us Father that We the Church in the United States can be TransChristians. Disobedient. Ineffective & Unproductive. If We smother and quench the Holy Spirit in Us, We lose out on His gifts, revival power and miracles through Us.
(1 Thessalonians 5:19)

Maybe We Forgot that We the Church have the Holy Spirit, and therefore We HAVE the Mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:14-16)

Maybe We Forgot that We have His ATTITUDE, and that is NEW, no longer corrupted by deceitful desires  (Ephesians 4:22,23)

Maybe We Forgot that We were NEWLY created to be like Him, truly righteous and HOLY! (Ephesians 4:24)

We just need to PUT ON this NEW mind. Every minute. Every hour. Every day.

You have ABUNDANT life. Abundant life is not pathetic life. Not compromised life. Not disaster life. Not drama life. Not robbed life. Not stolen identity life. Not destroyed life.  (John 10:10)

His ways are Holy. Always. He is the God who performs Miracles and displays His Power through YOU!!! (Psalm 77:14,15)

Be ready to be the miracle in someone’s life today. He will give You divine appointments. You just need to ask. He is able to do more than You can imagine or think through YOU!!!

PRAY FOR:
Continued worship, prayer and Bible study at the White House and the Capitol.
What is happening there now, in these areas is unparalleled. Righteousness and Justice are allowed to operate in and through the born again, Spirit filled believers that President Trump has appointed. This is the real reason the enemy of Our Almighty God is livid, and wants Trump removed. The war is real. Pray for divine protection on those elected officials and appointees.

PRAY FOR:
Revival to continue here in CA. We are seeing it in action, and it is happening throughout the state. Mainstream media will not discuss it. Pray for Pastors throughout our state that have received a fresh wind, fresh fire of the Holy Spirit to continue to preach Christ crucified and resurrected!!! Altar calls everywhere!!!

PRAY FOR:
Youth pastors. They are dealing with kids who have been bombarded with secular anti-God humanism at school, the culture and everywhere on social media. Pray these pastors reap a harvest of hard core, sold out Warriors for Jesus to infiltrate their schools, with the One and Only True Hope of Jesus.
