I awoke this morning hearing these words, “Call Back Those Who Feel Spiritually Disenfranchised.”
The atmosphere in the “air” is one that causes many to feel stripped of power, rights and freedom. It has produced depression, anxiety and a sense of hopelessness in the world but it has even effected those who are a part of the body of Christ.
The “prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) rules over the “sons of disobedience.” He rules in such a way that it brings oppression and deception across the face of the earth. Yet, when we were saved by grace, we were lifted above the world and even the air controlled by this “prince” who personifies rebellion, disobedience and hatred toward God. We were seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus where we have full freedom, rights and power through the Holy Spirit.
“…that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:5-7
Our union with Christ is what keeps us from being disenfranchised! We have the “incredible wealth of his grace and kindness” with us always. No prince of the air or power in the earth or air can take that away from us.
God has had me in deep intercession for those who have felt disenfranchised, disillusioned and disempowered within the body of Christ. As I have prayed the Spirit has revealed how his people must yield (surrender) their whole hearts and lives to Christ without reservation or timidity. The “power of the air” carries a strong spirit of intimidation— causing many to feel defensive and overpowered. Yet, this is a deception and a lie to cause us to live beneath where the grace and kindness of God has elevated us to— which is being seated with Christ where all authority and all dominion exists. You are a son or daughter with full rights to the inheritance of the King and you are a citizen of the Kingdom of God with full rights and freedom. You are NEVER disenfranchised!
God is calling back those who feel that they have lost their place and their rights. He is calling them back to His Kingdom where he rules and reigns in righteousness and truth. He is calling them back into their royal positions as sons and daughters.
Let us join him in calling them forth! This wrong posturing has produced entanglements of roots of bitterness, cynicism, misalignment and feelings of powerlessness. We can begin to intercede and pull these negative and oppressive entanglements off of them. We can call them into full surrender and the truth of their heavenly positions. We can call them back into sonship.
Then, with the authority of unity (oneness with Christ) and one another we can begin to call the unsaved into the salvation that comes by grace— into the new covenant.
Let us take up arms for our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters— who have lost their way. They are at risk and the entanglements have become a stone that is causing them to stumble and is opposing the blessings of his covenant promises from flowing freely into their lives.
Call the disenfranchised home! Call them back into the truth that is found in the grace and kindness of God. Call them back into the unity and oneness of Christ!
