For too long, we have been taught to focus on an imminent return of the Lord Jesus. This has led generally to a disengagement of the Body of Christ from the spiritual, cultural, and political wars that are necessary to win the battle for the earth. While all true followers of Christ look forward to His glorious return, we need to ask the question: ‘meanwhile, what are we to do until then?’ We could start with the Dominion Mandate of Genesis 1:28 and walk in this Original Great Commission given to our first parents. In summary, we are called to function as planet managers and culture stewards. The we can continue by obeying the Commission Jesus gave the Church to disciple nations by instructing them to live and walk in His revelation and commandments. Our goal is the earth have more sheep nations than goat nations!
The battle rages because there are spiritual, cultural, and political forces which oppose the Gospel and its growth. These forces are adversarial, evil, and wicked. Thus, we need to go the next level in our responsibilities in intercession and involvement on all the fronts of the battle! I remind you of what the old hymn says: “There is victory in Jesus”.
