Help your country steer clear of chaos and corruption!

Our chaotic and corrupt culture is collapsing all around us and desperately crying out for help in the confusion of its spiritual lostness. We are now frequently seeing cruel and bloody mass shootings that prove that a culture that lives like we don’t need the living God desperately needs Him. America is the first society in history where individuals massacring people (for no apparent reason) has become a common occurrence.

Breaking hearts are crying out to God for peace, safety, and hope. The myth that says we don’t need the living God is being shattered by the demonic cruelty of random mass murder.

As long as people want to be entertained by violence and disrespect for righteousness, the profit motive will supply that entertainment for them. The more a culture consumes violent and disrespectful entertainment, the more they will experience it in their society. We need the living God to change our heart so that we as a people enjoy entertainment that vividly demonstrates the beauty and joy of kindness and a clear conscience, instead of overflowing with cruelty and rebellion.

Now is the time for Christians to cultivate, embrace, and demonstrate continual awareness of the presence and power of the risen Jesus Christ — to rely on and illustrate His ability to change human hearts and set people free, instead of relying on the proven ineffectiveness of guns, politics, laws, and law enforcement.

Flee the inner emptiness of trying to entomb the living Jesus in intellect or in religious ceremony. His resurrection can neither be rationally explained nor institutionalized.

We need the internal stirring of awe produced by the awareness of Christ’s supernatural presence as an ongoing heart experience. Choose to humbly open up to and consciously abide in His present-day reality.

The risen Jesus longs to release His ever-flowing inner rivers of spiritually uplifting power and hope in and through His contemporary followers. Put and keep humble obedience to the risen Jesus first, far above every other desire and interest, not only in words, but also in thought and behavior. See for yourself!

Refuse to quench God’s Spirit. Keep the stone rolled away from your heart. In full surrender ever embrace and obey Jesus’ presence. Let Jesus off the religious chain!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
