Christians must heal the world through LOVE!

Please feel free to share.
“A TIME COMES WHEN SILENCE IS BETRAYAL.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke these words in a sermon entitled Beyond Vietnam in New York city on April 4, 1967. He was telling the American people that it is not easy as the truth descends upon your non violent mind and you realize the mysterious nature of our existence to tell others that they have been misguided by generations of  “false understandings” based on misdirected generational CORE BELIEFS.
 Here is link to his entire prophetic message: https://kinginstitute.stanford.edu/king-papers/documents/beyond-vietnam

We are using for this writing Dr. Kings opening line, A TIME COMES WHEN SILENCE IS BETRAYAL, to shine light on another misunderstanding of the Christian gospel. The Christian gospel or “good news”, is not to experience Jesus Christ after we die a bodily death. But it is instead to See Jesus Christ before we die, as was recorded in the “acts and memoirs” of the Apostles. We as Christians who have begun to unconditionally forgive thus “love our enemies”, COME TO UNDERSTAND that silence about the resurrection of Jesus Christ is to betray Him. We betray Him unconsciously by judging others and harboring enemies. We have NO enemies, just spiritual brothers and sisters. We are as Dr. King teaches us, one MANKIND.

Paul tells us in this passage of Ephesians that as we begin to let Jesus Christ awaken us from the sleep of Adam the mysteries of God are revealed to us, HIS DISCIPLES. 
“And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!”  Ephesians 3:9-10 The Message (MSG)

The “Great Commission” as disclosed to His disciples 2000 years ago could be restated in modern English without translations and concordances’, simply as: Go tell everyone I AM HERE. As you now know I have resurrected from the crucifixion and OUR Father has given me all authority in heaven and earth. BUT you, MY DISCIPLES, MUST OBEY EVERYTHING that I have commanded that you do in order to KNOW this truth that sets you free. Ask anything of OUR Father in my name according to His will, and you shall receive the thing asked for. I will be with you until I AWAKEN YOU from the “sleep of Adam”, so be of good cheer.

There is no doubt that our world is dying. It is dying because of our betrayal to follow the commandments or teachings of Jesus Christ Himself. When He commands HIS DISCIPLES to LOVE THY ENEMIES, and we don’t! The authority OUR Father gave OUR Savior Jesus Christ on our behalf, is usurped by our unwillingness to love one another. Thus, our mind remains split between love and fear. We fear those whom we judge, and we will love those to whom we forgive.

We are told to make disciples to make disciples, not war. But you must be a disciple to be able to disciple. If you think war is acceptable in any form, you PRECLUDE from YOURSELF the awareness of the Kingdom of Heaven refered to by Dr. King 50 years ago as, “the promised land.” The Holy Spirits Voice appears silent to those who love war.

There is an experience that comes with putting into PRACTICAL APPLICATION the teachings of Jesus Christ. This experience is the awareness that He did in fact resurrect to the Kingdom of God, and He NEVER Left Us alone.

Dr. King teaches us that the church MUST usher in the second coming of Jesus Christ THROUGH nonviolence.  The political systems of this world are ill equipped and unable to do the SPIRITUAL THINGS REQUIRED for emancipation from war and violence to the awareness of Eternal Life. But the church is equipped! We have the needed written word, now we need to put His teachings into PRACTICAL APPLICATION in our lives to see and experience a peace of mind that surpasses all intellectual understanding.

As the church or BODY OF CHRIST begins its prodigal walk back home, OUR Father sees “us” from a far off, and prepares for our arrival. When war ends in the disciples mind, it sees no more homeless brothers and sisters. It sees no addicted brothers and sisters. And it certainly does not see any more veteran suicides. IT SEES instead the “Promised Land” spoken about by Moses 3500 years ago, which Dr. King told us about as recently as ONLY 50 YEARS AGO!

“I may not get their with you!”, was our brother Martin telling us, DON’T GIVE UP!!; I Have SEEN the Promised Land! And Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ lives!

Amen
