On Turning the World Upside Down

We live in difficult times. As the West seeks to jettison all traces of its Christian heritage, it is heading down a path of collective suicide.

Times were pretty dark in the first century as well. Indeed, many parallels can be drawn between life back then and what we are experiencing today. Yet as difficult as those times were two millennia ago, we know that a small but dedicated band of counter-culturists radically impacted their world.

Indeed, we are informed that the early church “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6).

It goes without saying that followers of Jesus today should be having exactly the same powerful influence on our world. We too should be turning our world upside down. We should be just as sold out to Jesus and just as committed to being a genuine force of radical change.

What was it about the early believers that caused them to be regarded as such social radicals? Verse 7 provides the answer: “These all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus”. That was the real problem. The first century believers proclaimed only one Lord, and that Lord was not Caesar.

Thus the Imperial Cult was being directly challenged by the early believers. They would worship no one but Jesus. Only Jesus had the right to claim exclusive loyalty, obedience and devotion. All other claimants to the throne were impostors and pretenders. Caesar demanded exclusive loyalty and attention, but he could never receive that from true followers of Jesus.

Rome was not the true deity. Neither was Herod, the Jewish King. By stating that His kingdom was not of this world, Jesus challenged all worldly kings and kingdoms. By defying the religious and political establishment of the day, Jesus was deemed to be a rebel and a traitor.

Twenty-first century followers of Jesus are likewise viewed with suspicion, hatred and contempt. We too claim to serve another King, and we too will not bow down to false messiahs, sham kingdoms or counterfeit lords. We will always be on the outer. They hated Jesus and they will hate us.

Yet as we noted, the early believers radically overturned their world. They lived such lives of dedication, commitment and zeal, that wherever they went, that had an obvious and powerful impact on those they met, the institutions they encountered, and the societies they ministered in.

Nothing was left untouched when the early believers, filled with the power of the Spirit, proclaimed a new kingdom and a new King. We must do the same today. So let me present this blog as a counterweight to my many other articles which highlight the decadence, the corruption and the death of modern culture.

In the face of all the bad news we must not forget the good news which is Christ in us, the hope of glory. By ourselves we are no match for the corruption, evil and unbelief of the modern world. But with our Lord by our side, we can and will do mighty exploits in His name.

Recall some stirring words of recent great saints. Consider the words of William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army: “God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible.” If there ever was a time when we need men and women who have a heart bursting with a passion for the impossible, it is now.

Or consider the words of Henry Varley, as spoken to D.L. Moody: “The world has yet to see what God will do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to him.” That is the heart of the matter. That is the bottom line.

The truth is, the dark times we live in are really nothing to God. He is not impressed by them, nor should we be. What God is impressed with are those who are sold out for him 100 percent. But that is the problem. There are very few followers of Jesus who are.

Most of us are far too concerned about our own interests, our own pleasures, our own trivial pursuits. Very few of us have taken the words of Christ seriously: “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall find it.” (Luke 9:23-24).

All the great followers of Jesus have taken these words to heart. The young martyred missionary, Jim Elliot, certainly took this view. He was speared to death at the age of 29 in the jungles of Ecuador. Prior to his death he had penned these words in his diary: “He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose.”

Jim and the four other young men who also died in January of 1956 left a wonderful legacy. Jim’s wife Elizabeth Elliot stayed behind to minister to her husband’s killers. Eventually the villagers who were responsible for their deaths came to know Jesus Christ as Savior, and revival broke out in the area.

Those missionaries faced tremendous obstacles and exceedingly dark times. So did the early disciples. And so do we today. But what matters is whether we are fully committed to Christ and His work. There is no obstacle too great, and there is no culture too dark, that a band of dedicated and Spirit-filled believers cannot overcome.

As Jesus told his frightened and wavering disciples, just as he was about to leave them and go to his death, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33). Jesus has overcome indeed. The kingdoms of the world conspired against Him. But He defeated them all, even death itself.

We face similar opposition. But with our God we shall do valiantly. So please, let us all commit ourselves to renewing our allegiance to Christ and redoubling our efforts for His kingdom. The battles are too great, the casualties are too high, and the consequences of defeat are too important. We must be involved, and give our all to Christ and His kingdom.

Bezaleel and Aholiab

Exodus 31:1-6 “And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;”

A few weeks ago I found an article that dealt specifically with technology and its use in the church. It talked about Exodus 31 and brought out the phrase “…I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship…”

Wow! It was like a lightbulb went off in my head. Certainly I knew and believe that God gives us everything but I never considered how specifically God gives us wisdom, understanding, knowledge and all manner of workmanship for His work.

So many times I feel so inadequate when a new task or responsibility is put in front of me. It doesn’t have to be an enormous task for me to feel inadequate, it can be as simple as inviting someone to church. My mind begins to tell me that I’m not ready, that I don’t have all the answers that I will need to answer their deep theological questions. When in reality I am on a mission from Elohim, the God of Strength, who will give me the strength I need. I have been called by Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts, who is the Mighty Power and able to conquer even the toughest situations. When I think that I am alone in this calling I must remember that Jehovah-Shammah, the ever present Lord, is always with me.

Just like God gave Bezaleel and Aholiab exactly what they needed to work on the tabernacle God will give us exactly what we need to do His work. I don’t get the impression that these men became instant masters of their craft. I imagine that they had to spend time learning and honing their skills but the difference was that it came faster and easier for them. Why? God placed in them everything they needed to complete God’s work. The same is true for us, we may not be the greatest orator in history the first time we step behind a lectern to teach a class of third graders. But as God calls us to work He will give us the skills we need.

Maybe you have experienced this filling of the Spirit of God and know exactly what Exodus 31 is talking about. The next time that someone compliments you on your skill, you don’t have to have a false sense of humility saying, “Oh, it’s nothing.” No, it is something. You can smile and with a truly humble spirit respond, “Thank you, God put it in me.”

The story doesn’t end there; look in Exodus 36 “Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.”

Notice it was more than just the people whose names were recognized. All of us whether recognized or not have a place serving in God’s work. The next time you are given an opportunity to serve God, know that when God calls you to a task He will give you exactly what you need to complete it.
