There she was singing her heart out on Christian television. As the song continued, her calling on God became more intensified. Over and over again, her cry to God to please take action with His mighty power got more and more desperate.
There was not one ounce of faith in it!
On the contrary, those heartfelt words were full of fear. Where fear is in full manifestation there is NO faith. That does not please God. (Hebrews 11:6) Why? The channel of faith which God uses to bless His children has a kink in it.
“How can you say that song has no faith in it? She obviously believes in God?”
Demons believe in God! That doesn’t mean they have the God-kind of faith.
“You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!” (James 2:19)
The problem with this dear heart begging God to send the power is that just doesn’t line up with scripture. The writer of the song and the one singing do not know who they are in Christ Jesus or the authority that has been placed in their hands. It’s a big problem throughout The Church.
The Ball is in your Court
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
“... and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19)
Who has the keys of authority?
Where’s the hang up?
In the pulpit! (See Hosea 5:6 & Isaiah 5:13)
What did Jesus say?
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them... teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues... they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17-18)
Satan would like nothing better than to steal the knowledge of our authority. If he can keep The Church in a continual state of begging and rehearsing past hurts it gives him room to operate. Why? No one is stopping him.
Several gangs were operating in a community, vandalizing homes, breaking into stores, killing people. The police were called but when they showed up they sat in their cars making phone calls to the Chief of Police. “Please send help, we’re desperate for your power.” Others said, “Please, we need you to come here. We’re waiting for you, seeking only you.”
What do you think the Chief of Police might say to his officers?
Would he be pleased?
Haven’t these officers been deputized? Don’t they know they have authority and the power of their cities’ government behind them? Why aren’t officers enforcing the law that has been written? Why aren’t they using the power that has been given them?
What did Jesus do?
“But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils.” (Luke 11:20-22)
What about The Church of the LORD Jesus Christ?
Greater works than these we will do...(John 14:12)
"Christ in you, the hope of glory." (Colossians 1:27)
This is that...which Jesus Christ prophesied.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
