The last thing that I was known as being before this journey began for me was that of a rebel or an extremist. I essentially blended in with the world. I was a mannequin with no relevant direction or purpose in life. I was just like everyone else. And then I was rescued and saved by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Almighty ! I’ve been on a journey following and obeying Him for the past 32 months now, and the world has conveniently identified and classified me as an extreme radical right-wing Jesus freak nut job looney tune. I am weird. I am wacky. I must be smoking the weeds.
The fact of the matter is that Jesus Christ was the ultimate rebel. He was the King of all radical extremists. In order to follow a rebel you’ve got to be a rebel. You’ve got to stand out from the crowd that is the world. You’ve got to wake up and activate from the evil and the darkness of the night. You’ve got to kick the devil hard in the face and tell him to get lost. You’ve got to take a stand and make a difference here on Earth. You’ve got to walk in His shoes and be His legs and His feet here on Earth.
It takes a rebel to know a rebel. It’s as simple as that, so call me extreme.
Matthew 24:9-14 (NLT, 2ND Ed.)
9 “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.
10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.
11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.
12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.
13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
14 And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.
