Exciting New Insight Brings Genuine Freedom
The latest insight from the Advanced Training Institute...
Many times over the years, concerned fathers and mothers have approached us with one question: How do we equip our sons and daughters to go into the world and save souls, without risking harm to their own souls? These wise parents recognize that these are perilous times, and Satan delights to steal the radiance from committed young people.
The answer came about only after fasting, prayer, and studying the rich insights of the life of Christ. God granted us a rhema which gave us an unprecedented level of freedom. We are excited to share it with you here:
The Great Commission does not apply to Believers who are committed to living high standards.
Scripture admonishes us to avoid the appearance of evil and to live apart from the world. We cannot live in obedience to these commands if we regularly visit such places of sinfulness such as bars, theaters, sports games, and churches which play "Christian" rock music. These places are given over to Satan, and a Christian who frequents them opens himself to attacks from the enemy.
"But how are we to bring the lost to Christ?" someone may ask. Scripture clearly indicates that if we are living lives of virtue, our radiance will attract others to us. Our holy living will call them out of their own sin, while preserving us blameless and unblemished.
Those blinded by worldly wisdom, whose carnal spirits react to high standards, scoff and say, "But Jesus ate among publicans and sinners, and allowed a harlot to wash His feet." But Jesus is God, and as such was invulnerable to the influences of sin and Satan. Who are we to question His works? It is for us rather to obey the clear commands of Scripture, to be not conformed to the world.
Others, with lower standards, may go into the world, and may work a measure of success. But we who live according to God's highest purposes know that a pure heart is most pleasing to Him. Fathers, protect your sons and daughters, encourage them in virtue and genuine love, and you will see the world come to them.
