Occupy Jesus Christ (Behold My Servant) | Countdown to the Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 26 –

OCCUPY JESUS CHRIST(Behold My Servant) – Justice for the Nations

I was at an amazing prayer meeting the other day. I’m not sure if anything like this has ever happened before, but one of the top leaders in the COGIC denomination, one of the top leaders in the AOG denomination, and many pastors in the city of Detroit held a unified prayer meeting and started a 21-day fast. COGIC and AOG split racially (black & white) after Azuza Street, so the spiritual significance of the unity was amazing. The Prayer was for the poor, and all types of revival in Detroit.

But anyway, I just want to share a quick blog inspired by a 5 minute sermonette by Stuart Greaves on the Kingdom Justice Movement that is based not on political and social causes, but on Jesus Christ. True effective Justice only comes from God, and is centered on Jesus Christ. We are expounding on Isaiah 42:

1 Behold – [You have to BEHOLD Jesus Christ if You want Justice, or True judgement. This is the main thing, and the first and last priority.]

 my servant,– [Jesus is GOD’s servant, he proactively fulfills God’s every practical desire

whom I uphold – [GOD supports, upholds, undergirds, and sustains His servant] ;

mine elect, – [God’s servant has been chosen and endorsed by Him, he is confident in God’s decision to choose him]

in whom my soul delighteth – [God delights in Him, God has pleasure in His servant Jesus.] ;

I have put my spirit upon him: – [ God gave Jesus His power and His spirit to do great exploits]

he shall bring forth judgment  to the Gentiles. – [ Jesus is the only person qualified to bring judgement to the people of the earth ]

2 He shall not cry , nor lift up , nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.  – [ Jesus preached His message with boldness, but He didn’t strive, debate, or argue. ]

3 A bruised reed shall he not break , and the smoking flax shall he not quench – [ Jesus didn’t do much violence, He was gentle in the physical realm, but violent in the spiritual, through fasting, prayer, and preaching/speaking]

: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. – [ Jesus’s social and political causes are for truth to reign, not for strife and gain.]

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged , till he have set judgment in the earth: – [ Jesus is not in a rush. He wasn’t rushing then, and He’s not now. He knows He won’t fail, and He won’t be discouraged. Its just a matter of time until He executes His decision on every cause, on every case, and every injustice in the earth.]

 and the isles shall wait for his law. – [ Every group of people down to each island community will end up looking to Jesus Christ Himself, to find out what He has to say about their society and community.]

Isaiah 42

BEHOLD GOD’S SERVANT!

Justice comes from beholding Jesus Christ. So if you have a heart for justice in the earth, or you need justice in your own life… look for and expect Jesus Christ.

And if you too are a servant of God, laboring for justice, then BEHOLD how the Chief Servant, Jesus Christ does his justice work. Justice only comes from Beholding Jesus Christ. If you are chosen, elected, supported, empowered, and delighted in by God thru Jesus Christ, then you will have the confidence, patience, and endurance to wait on God, work for God, and receive His judgement based on Truth. If you want to OCCUPY anything… make sure you are Occupying Jesus Christ! He has all true Justice and Judgement under His Authority.
