The genuine power of Jesus Christ is revealed through the simple aversion unbelievers have towards Him. Since becoming a Christian I have lost more friends, have had more people make fun of me (I know, it’s crazy that biological adults still do that, right?), and have had people actually question my sanity.
None of this ever happened when I was sharing the satanic message through the language of New Age practices/phrases. No one rejected me or made fun of me when I told them I was into yoga, or meditation, or Buddhism, etc. Unrepentant sinners have an aversion to Christ for reasons they cannot even understand perhaps? Perhaps the disdain they have for my beloved Lord is deeper than they can ever understand. For we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but instead against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Most people don’t even recognize the fact that there is a spiritual realm existing all around us, let alone understand how it works. The enemy has you fooled if this is you. The best way to defeat someone is to make them believe you do not even exist.
When I experience the scoffing aversion to Christ from the proud people I meet and people I know personally, I see how powerful Jesus Christ actually is. God is 100% sovereign, and 100% Holy, and His purpose is not to affirm us, and morph into who we want Him to be based on our own human desires. He is the Almighty Creator, and He bows to NO ONE. Hallelujah!
“For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.”
