You Can’t Organize Israel
LISTEN NOW! Greg and Pat discuss how you can’t organize Israel and encourage us to keep Israel in our prayers. They discuss how the president will be meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about this frame work of peace deal that they are working on while there are 170,000 missiles aimed at Israel. They further discuss how there seems to be Alinsky tactics at work to pressure Israel. They are coming in to nudge Israel to get them to do what they want them to do. What you will find is that there is not an agenda. They just keep this rapid movement going so that people can be gathered up and herded up to get people to be nudged to go in a certain direction. These are the Alinsky tactics that he wrote about in the book Rules for Radicals. They further discuss that organizing is not good or bad it just depends what they are organizing about. They continue to show us how the church was falling for these tactics during a national conversation regarding the Affordable Healthcare Act and abortion being part of it. God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Saul in the New Testament before he became Paul thought he was doing something good for God until he met Jesus. They encourage us to listen to Organizers of the Day versus Organizers of the night. Israel today is completely surrounded by her enemies with over 100,000 missiles pointed at her. They continue to discuss how these tactics are being used to try to organize Israel. As Christians we can’t bow down we must allow Jesus to organize us.
There is No Condemnation in Jesus
Greg and Pat discuss how there is no condemnation in Jesus. It’s not the church’s job to condemn. Romans 8: 1 says “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Jesus did not come to condemn the world but to save the world. We are already serving a life sentence. That’s like telling a prisoner on death row that he is a prisoner. He already knows that. Telling someone what they are will not motivate them. Jesus didn’t come to condemn but to save. Tell them about the love of Jesus and why he came to save us and to set us free. He has a plan for your life. Jesus is the doorway that allows the prisoner to be free. We are not called to be sin focused but the love of God. You don’t fish with cleaning gear you fish with fishing gear. Once the fish is caught then you clean the fish. If we move outside of God’s love we may find we are subject to fall into condemnation. You must rely on the finished work of Jesus Christ and when you do He will empower you to walk in the place of obedience. If you have been caught up in the condemning band wagon and feel like it’s your job to point others sins out by being critical and condemning you are actually damaging the gospel. We are called to share the love of God. There is a difference between God’s conviction and condemnation. One produces more of the same and the other leads people to freedom.
