Activism: Lord, Remove It From Me

This title puts me in the sights of criticism from activists, but I’m willing to accept this vulnerability so I can remove even the shadow of activism in my own spirit.
As I have mentioned before in earlier blogs, the Lord spoke to me about a year ago and said, “When you pray, intercede for the angels to remove all forms of activism from the earth during this harvest season.”  Of course when God spoke this to me, I began to do a lot of introspective soul-searching ~ that revealed to me that I myself was an activist. The spirit that was on me was the desire to control other people and make them do my bidding. This controlling spirit is not the way that Jesus wants leaders to be. He desires us to follow Him by inspiration ~ and not by fear or intellectual convincing.
As I began to intercede and pray all across America, I saw that activism was a skill that the powers and forces of darkness were trying to develop among the world’s population ~ to the point of even paying many to be “disruptors”. I instantly recognized this as an attribute of Lucifer, who was called a division causer among the brethren. Very ugly spirits come out of activism, which pollute the soul and defile the mind. The shocking thing that was revealed to me in intercession was that that defilement was inside of me. Wow! This was really getting personal. But I also realized it was the mercy of God that allowed me to see such a thing so I could be cleansed. And oh how exciting it is to get a chance to be clean!
Think of the person whois closest to you. Activism affects what we do and say to others around us. Yes, in this area I am probably just like you. I often want to correct people when I speak to them. My intention is to have them go in a way that would please me. But this is an area where activism must die in me. In Matthew 7:14-15, Jesus gave this explanation: “And He called the people to Him again and said to them, ‘Hear Me, all of you, and understand: There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.'” So this brings me to the point that we’ve got to be willing to be quiet and say nothing ~ and to pray for our family and others who are close to us so that activism is completely removed in each of us.
When activism ceases to exist, it clears the air around every person ~ freeing them from all controlling spirits. “He that the Son has set free, is free indeed.” This freedom means that He will be the quiet voice speaking to you every day, taking you on the greatest adventure you could ever have. And this adventure is continuous. I know, for my family and I are experiencing it right now! Wow, this freedom is exciting!
