To those that carry the New
It’s amazing how well received you are if you play along and help maintaining the Old, although carrying the New.
But the moment they realize you didn’t come to confirm the Old but to Declare the New, silence and rejection becomes your part.
It’s hard when the values of the Old become strongholds that resist the New.
Defending the Old as being the Now means that the Old will always be old and only becomes older.
In the same time, declaring the Old as being the Not is declaring your Tree doesn’t has Roots and your House doesn’t has a Foundation.
Very few realize that there is a progress involved when we understand the renewal of the Old by embracing and recognizing the New.
Thinking generational means thinking progression, legacy and infinity.
And remember, Old is not Wrong but… Old and of course, New is not per definition Good, but just… New.
Old only become Wrong when its refuses to understand that it’s a stepping stone to the next level.
Generations are not a part of a repeating itself system but with deep honor involved to the values that are brought by the Old, a progressive process of Restoration and Renewal.
When we become part of the “Behold I will do a New thing”, we become part of a Kingdom bigger Perspective. We become part of the Taking back what the enemy has stolen.
When you become the Voice of the Old by rejecting the New, you become the personification of what is supposed to be a process, not a person.
“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.” Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.“”
Jeremiah 1:4-10 ESV
…to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.
