TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7
Scripture: John 9:17-34
Jesus healed a blind beggar but did it on the wrong day, which created division and a spiritual inversion. If you are sick is there a wrong day to get set free? What is a spiritual inversion? A spiritual inversion is where religious tradition is overturned often resulting in the followers teaching the leaders. When God goes after tradition, wise men embrace humility and prepare for change. The wisdom of the blind man in his healing brought a revealing of the tradition that held people in captivity and the leaders found themselves being taught. They could not stand the power of the Holy Spirit that turned their tradition on its ear and so they had to throw out the man with the revelation. What would happen to the largest churches in America if suddenly, the 25,000 or 50,000-strong congregations got a revelation of Jesus the Judge and prayed a plumbline into their church over compromise? Would homosexual church leaders survive? Where would they go? Would people continue to feed a beast that has become their captor? What would a Holy Spirit invasion look like? Would the sheep revolt? If Jesus were to remove our blinders, would we see? Come Holy Spirit and invade the church! Let us wake up in the morning and have a whole new wave crashing upon the entire church and let God arise! Now that is something to pray for.
