Start acting like God’s people. And in America particularly this is a problem we have right
now. Um, there’s national polling done by a number of groups, but one of them that’s a national group
that really focuses on Christians is George Barna. And George Barna has now gone through 70
categories of moral behaviour – looking at moral behavior in the nation, and he says that he can find
no substantial difference from professing Christians and non-Christians on moral behaviour.
Where is he looking? He didn’t call me.
No, he didn’t call us but there’s too few of us and Christians professing the Name need to be there.
And here’s one of the statistics that got me from a number of polling places is that in America the
divorce rate for born-again Christians is 27%. So what’s the rest of the nation not born-again Christian?
The rest of the nation is 24%. And for atheists and agnostics the divorce rate is 21%. Tell me why
atheists and agnostics have more stable marriages than born-again Christians?
Well, this plug this into the mix and this is a real eye-opener for me: Satan is not attacking atheists,
agnostics – he’s not attacking the world out there. They’ll kill themselves. But somebody gets into the
Kingdom of God and begins to pick that Bible up, Jesus said,
‘He [satan] will come immediately trying to STOP the Word.’
He [satan] will persecute and do everything he can to stop…
And he’ll even look like an angel of light when he does it.
And if they don’t know their weapon [Word of God], if they don’t know who they are in Christ Jesus. \
Just in the natural, in the carnal mind, Romans 8:6 says,
For to be carnally minded is DEATH,
2 Corinthians 2:11 says,
‘If we’re ignorant of his [satan’s] devices, then he has an advantage over us.’
Out in the country what makes traps work, I mean the reason we can trap skunks is they don’t know
what a trap looks like. If they every figure out what a trap looks like, we can’t trap them.
David, I went to one bullfight in my life. I didn’t want to go to that but I was in another country and I was
in a position where it would have been an insult for me not to go, and so I went. In a way, I’m glad I did
because the Lord showed me something.
I watching this big, strong animal and he keeps attacking a red rag. He thinks that red cloth is his
enemy and he continually misses his enemy, who is standing right in front of him, he’s standing
right there in eyesight of him, but he’s focused on that red rag. And the man out there in the ring knows
good and well if he [the bull] ever notices who he is, he’s in trouble. He’s got to keep his [the bull]
attention over here with that red rag and the Lord starting talking to me about that.
The Lord said,
‘What you are witnessing is the way the devil has managed to handle My people who
> don’t know who they are,
> don’t know their weapons,
> don’t have any understanding of the spiritual rules and laws in the Kingdom of God
and so they’re still living over here in the kingdom of darkness and don’t know any better.’
They’ve got a label that says,
‘I’m a Born-Again Christian,’
but they are still thinking very much like the world.
That’s it…no mind renewal at all.
