And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].—Matthew 11:12 (Amplified)
Aggressive: making an all-out effort to win or succeed; competitive; vigorously energetic, especially in the use of initiative and forcefulness; boldly assertive and forward;
Do you believe that Jesus came to reconcile, or bring us back in harmony with God? If you do, then you have to believe that with that reconciliation come peace, love, healing, prosperity and such—otherwise, what’s the point? If it was just to go to heaven, then He should save us and take us. But He doesn’t do that, He leaves us here for a purpose.
What’s the purpose, you ask? I believe it is to be examples of His love, grace, and power. I believe it is to break the power of Satan here on earth by advancing the Kingdom of God onto the enemy’s territory and staking a flag signifying that this is now under the rule of God.
We can, and should do this in every area of our lives…in the name of Jesus! We can seize and take control of everything of ours the enemy has had in his control—our health, homes, marriages, finances, churches, communities, and world.
