The term ‘nation,’ as referenced in Isaiah 2:2, encompasses not only nationality but also people of diverse backgrounds.
Prophetically speaking, Daniel described a time in the church where, God’s people, His church and His program will be so built in stature and with power. He gave a prophetic picture of the coming days of God’s power and the move of The Spirit.(Daniel 2:44). Daniel 2:44 (NIV)“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.” Everyone you intend to introduce to the faith life is already involved in something significant in their lives. It becomes dangerous and disheartening when people come to Church, and there is nothing substantial to offer them.
The narrative of Jesus that has been presented to the world over time is imbalanced, leading some people to believe that coming to Him is a futile endeavor.
People are driven by the desire for profit and a sense of purpose. As Believers, there is a concept of God we ought to present to the nations that aligns with these.
There is a concept of Jesus that has been wrongly presented and has impoverished Africa. In the book of Luke, the reason the poor, the lame, and the blind were invited to the banquet (Luke 14:16-23) is because they were already marginalized and neglected. The Host’s intention was to include all people, not to isolate any group.
The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a platform and institution where nations should come to encounter the True Living God. The Kingdom of God and the church are inclusive and not limited to the poor, dejected, or frustrated people. A forgiving God (though not a condoning God) is worth coming to. Forgiveness is a scarce commodity in today’s world.
Five Representations of The One True God that The Church Must Present to the World
1. The God who forgives. (Psalm 103:1-3, Daniel 9:9, Ephesians 1:7, Jeremiah 31:3, John 3:16). They need a representation of a God who loves and forgives them, not to condone sin but as an expression of His love for them. A forgiving God is a God worth coming to, because forgiveness is a scarce commodity in today’s world.
Eternal life is a gift available to both the great and the small; it is a gift for all people (John 3:16).” The condition to receiving forgiveness from God is genuine brokenness and repentance.
One of the most powerful methods of compelling nations to Jesus is the healing ministry, leading to a greater harvest of souls than you’ve ever witnessed.
2. The God who heals. (Jeremiah 17:14, Matthew 9:35). _The healing anointing and ministry is one of the most compelling systems to attract the world to the church. When we can present a solution to the world that defies medical science alongside genuine proofs and miracles, that Jesus truly heals, a day will come when nations will passionately desire to have an encounter with Him.
When it comes to the God of healing, people from all walks of life, including Asians, Americans, and even herbalists, will call upon His name. When the church collaborates with medical science and provides tangible evidence that Jesus can heal, a time will come when nations will be attracted to the church. A single genuine miracle can be as impactful as a thousand sermons.
For anyone sick in any part of your body, by the power given to us by our Healing Jesus, may you be healed now! In the name of Jesus, may God find your hands available, to present a healing Jesus to the nations.
In the name of Jesus, may God find your hands available, to present a healing Jesus to the nations.
Do not downplay the desperation of people.Nobody would willingly watch their loved ones suffer or die. Without showcasing a God who heals, Africa may revert to old habits, (visiting witchdoctors and practising traditional, extra-biblical practices). The End-time Church must be the church that presents The God that heals.
Pray: Father, restore the healing mantle to The Church. May the End-time Church present The God that heals, to the nations, in the name of Jesus!
