TODAY IS RISE-ABOVE
If you really believe that God’s divine plan involves you RISING-ABOVE this fallen world to enjoy the good life with Him, than expect that every time you RISE-ABOVE to acquire this good life, the fallen world entailed with your past life, and many vices will vastly be there insisting that you come back down to where “it” belongs. Let’s pause for a moment. I said “where it belongs.”
My friends, we don’t belong in this world; were just travelling through this world. “Then he said to them. “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not. That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am who I say I am, you will die in your sins.” (John 8:23-24). The point here is, If we claim that Jesus is our Lord and Personal Savior then it is impossible to be fallen in this world.
Ill-advisedly (Adam/Eve) caused us to be born into sin (no need to blame them now, without their sin our Lord Savior Jesus Christ wouldn’t have ever came into this world). Undeniably we have taken on some of the personas of sin, and practiced a vast amount of its behaviors and patterns; therefore this fallen world will always appeal to us with past vices or new vices. However we are still yet, required by God to RISE-ABOVE the worlds patterns, and behaviors every time we are challenged to fall down to them. “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you do, and you know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.” (Romans 12:2). I mean really if you don’t RISE-ABOVE your thinking, you’ll never rise above your past, or the world’s patterns and behaviors.
There is nothing more tragic then to see a child of God fallen down in sin, and muddling in the patterns and behaviors of this world. Being tossed too, and fro with their past to only rise for a moment, then to later be cast back down being overtaken with that sin, then to later be divulged by that likewise sin.
This brings to mind, a Rivival my former church had many years ago, and Pastor Brenda (Milwaukee Wisconsin) shared with us how God allowed her to witness this experience with her cat, and a mouse. “She awakens in the wee hours of the morning to see her cat repeatedly playing with a mouse (before he caught it). Then after he caught it he repeatedly played with it in his mouth, then he allowed it to escape several times, aggressively placing it back in his mouth each time, eventually the mouse became so tired till it could barely run, then out of nowhere the cat harshly clutched it, and divulged it.” She said God told her “this is exactly what the enemy (Satan) does to his children, he lures them with this world pleasures, and as they try to rise above he divulges them. Get the point!
I hope and pray that someone will RISE-ABOVE the behaviors, patterns, and addictions of this world by allowing Jesus Christ to be their Lord and Savior. Surely He is the only source that can maintain you as you RISE-ABOVE this world. “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10).
