Truth in the hands of the people

The strategy of hell has always been to keep the truth out of the hands of the people.

The good news is, Gods strategy is to get the truth into the hands of the people.

Jesus said in Matt. 13 "he who hears the word of the kingdom and grasps it or "gets it" will be fruitful."

If this is true, why aren't more Christians "getting it"?

If Jesus said the harvest is ripe, why are most Christians not walking in fruitfulness?

I believe this kind of revelation is more caught than taught. The problem with to much teaching is that you can be ever learning and never quite "get" or grasp the truth.

This is why most pharisees couldn't catch it and it's why many believers can't catch it today.

There is a mindset in much of the religious world that believes, God wants to use the best, the brightest, the educated, the gifted,and the sophisticated to reach the world.

The only problem is Gods strategy is a little different.

Isa 26:5-6 says
5 He humbles the proud
and brings down the arrogant city.
He brings it down to the dust.
6 The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot,
and the needy walk all over it.

Isa 26:5-6
5 Those who lived high and mighty
he knocked off their high horse.
He used the city built on the hill
as fill for the marshes.
6 All the exploited and outcast peoples
build their lives on the reclaimed land.

God's army is made up of the humble, the outcast, the poor etc...

Without discipleship, truth tends to be used as a platform that breeds the "God only uses the gifted professionals" mentality.

Jesus imparted truth into everyday people. He said "follow me". Paul said, "imitate me as I imitate Christ". We learn by example, we catch vision by seeing it lived out in someone else. We are inspired to be courageous by hanging around people with courage.

Jesus warned of the leaven of the pharisees.

Matt 23:3-4
Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do.

Gen.Patton said "what the hell good is a commander who won't get shot at?"

The problem today is most religious leaders are to sophisticated for their own good. The "professional" although well polished and very gifted never seems to quite impart the simple fundamentals of the kingdom. Christian truth is best imparted by example.

Most Christians feel disqualified from doing the stuff because their only examples are gifted professionals.

I believe God's blowing a fresh wind of good old fashioned Holy Ghost discipleship.

Watch out kingdom of darkness, the poor, the outcast, the oppressed and the needy are about to victoriously trample your kingdom underfoot and walk all over it!
