Societal

Transformation

By Divine Design all of mankind are social creatures.

Gen 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone.


God designed us for relationship with one another and with Hymn! His Plan was for us to live in harmony with all people, as well as all of Creation as His beneficial stewards of the Ecology of the Earth.  His Plan has not changed!

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
 


The Evil One came to Adam and Eve in the form of a serpent and tempted them to distrust God’s Word and disobey His Voice. Their sin separated them from God, His Presence, and His Covering.  Then fear, shame and guilt drove them to turn against each other; accusing and blaming one another for their sin. Adam, out of frustration, even tried to shift the blame for their sin to God!  This is the fruit of the Kingdom of Darkness.

 
Jesus Christ died upon the Cross to redeem fallen mankind and all of Creation. When men and women repent by turning from sin, choosing to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and receive Him into their lives as their Lord and Savior a Divine miracle takes place. They are born-again as a new people who are no longer prisoners of the Kingdom of Darkness and sin, for they have become free sons and daughters of the Kingdom of God!

These spiritual dynamics pertaining to individual people also pertain to all societies of the Earth, for a society is simply a group of people sharing the same geographical or social territory subject to the same political authority and cultural expectations.

In any given society, there are relatively few who hold primary positions of authority  that enable them to influence and shape the culture within it’s borders. The greater the authority, the greater the influence!

In most societies of any size, there are generally seven primary sectors that shape the culture and therefore, the future of the majority of their people. The seven sectors are: the spiritual – the family – education – government – media – business/technology – the arts/sports.

If the people with the authority to direct each sector are prisoners of the Kingdom of Darkness and sin, then they will make decisions influenced by fear, ambition, distrust, greed and selfishness. But if the people with the authority to direct each sector are free sons and daughters of the Kingdom of God and His Love, then they will make decisions influenced by His Love, Wisdom, Peace, Justice, Mercy and what is Right.

It is time to invest in preparing a new generation of leaders for the good of society! Godly young men and women of Integrity, Humility, Knowledge and Wisdom who Love and serve their nation as Kingdom Ambassadors in a Spirit of Excellence unto the fulfilling of her Divine Destiny!

Amen.
