“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12)
God’s people are fierce. God’s people are brazen. God’s people take the gates of hell by storm. God’s people turn the world upside down. God’s people don’t care about what man thinks but think everything of what God thinks.
God’s people are concerned.
God’s people are passionate.
God’s people will not let a race extinguish itself under any circumstances, save God himself say, “Stand back and I will destroy them.”
And even then, God’s people will meet the challenge to pray and intercede on behalf of those who are perishing! God’s people will not, if it is at all possible with them, let the nation that has forsaken her God be destroyed on account of her sin.
God’s people will not sit back and let it happen.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it [is] a stiffnecked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit [it] for ever. And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.” (Exodus 32:9-14)
