RADICAL or REGULAR
Islam has abused God’s principles, Hollywood abused sex, preachers abused prosperity, saints abused grace
Acts 1:8
World is not terrified of the majority of regulars but of minority of radicals Majority of regular Muslims don’t frighten no one but it’s the minority of radicals that do Noah – regular drown but radical lived; Abraham – left regular religion for radical follower; Joseph – radical dreamer; Rehab – radical faith; Gideon – regulars left radicals stayed; Jonathan – left regulars became radical; 3 boys – regulars didn’t stop them; Baptist – regulars didn’t make him regular; Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, John Knox, William Seymour, Kathryn Kulman, Bible & prayer out of schools, 10 Commandments, or 911 Majority in crowd hiding, but minority in Christ hiding Radicals are like hot potato while regulars are like warm water (Rev.3:16) Violent man take the kingdom by force (Mt.11:12)
What makes radicals dangerous, is they are willing to die for what they believe Wearing Christian t-shirt doesn’t make you radical, it’s saying NO to yourself You can’t stop a man who is willing to die for what he believes (1982 – greatest non-combat, Lebanon, kamikaze) You will be witnesses “martyr” for Me (Acts 1:8). They overcome by losing their lives (Rev.12:11) Self-preservation is the e-brake on your Christianity. Sacrifice is the cost of radicalism Radicals are saying not “MY” but “THY” will be done. Self is onion that makes God’s eyes bleed Radical is God at throne and self on the cross Don’t die for what you believe, live what you believe
What makes radicals effective, is they are wearing vest filled with explosives Terrorist don’t wear bullet proved vest like many Christians. Sheep among wolves. Meek will be persecuted Strong men are not those who don’t get hurt but those who don’t quit. Joseph, David, Isaiah, Jesus, Disciples Samson was loaded, David was loaded, Elijah was loaded, Jesus was loaded, and disciples were loaded Fire makes the difference not the fox. Fire is for fields not for fun. Fire follows those who follow Jesus Faith is what turns on the explosive. Believe and you will do the works of Mine
