The Reality the Church Needs to Move in to Reclaim Its Majority Mantle

by | Jan 24, 2022 | Revival

I feel this burden to approach the subject of minorities. There’s a subtle attempt in our world to make the church a minority and to silence our voice.

In the Scriptures, we’re told Abraham was called by God to leave his father’s house — his comfort zone — into a land that was already inhabited by others. As he took these steps, he thus became a minority in this land as there were more people already inhabiting the area.

The majority in these lands tried to use intimidation to deter him. They then used misrepresentation, misunderstanding and fear tactics to ensure the promise and the authority on him would not grow.

Fast forward to the times of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lord and His disciples were certainly the minorities. This was evidenced by the persecution, rejection and vilification they endured. Yet them being the truth that would change the world and bring revival would not wane.

There’s been so much that has gone on with minority groups. The seemingly prevailing group, in wanting to enforce some sort of hierarchy and subjugation, label the other a “minority.” In Christ, this is a different story; or should I say, it should be a different story. Our Father, through the grace of Jesus expressed through the Holy Spirit, gives the power to defeat these notions and mindsets.

Let me explain further. Whenever you walk in a pioneering and forerunning spirit in taking ground in a new place, where there may be “more” people than you, it would look like they have more authority. There will be pushback. The old adage goes that “there is strength in numbers.”

In most cases, this is true. Yet Scripture amplifies a truth through the prophet Elisha “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them” (2 Kings 6:16, NKJV), when he prayed for the eyes of the servant to be opened as they were outnumbered in the physical. Just like Elisha, the time is now for us to move in the promises held out in the Word of God; the most powerful and efficacious weapon in the world.

We all find our sustenance through the Bible. It is the very foundation of our lives and all that emanates from us; our guiding light. It really works. If it thus says, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them,” then we need to engage with the Holy Spirit to get the strategy to take dominion.

This leads us to another most pivotal point, our inward fortification. The Scriptures again exhort us to renew our minds and put on the whole armor of God. It’s high time we move in this instructional promise, so as we strengthen ourselves, when the resistance winds attempt to move us backward, we stand after doing all to stand in the Word of God. All this so we become the majority, not the minority.

If it’s not for the endurance and the steadfastness of believers, the whole world would blow up and cave in. If we now understand this authority we carry through the Word and God’s promises, we’ll begin to push back in this season.

All this goes with culture and ethnicity. When one feels marginalized and labeled as a minority, the annoyance and disappointment levels reach a peak. The very thing you’re strong at, the enemy will use different voices to label you and declare your redundancy in that area.

The travesty! Yet when the people groups, if they are representatives, understand that this is a ploy to exploit and highlight weakness instead of strength, harness the truth of who you know you are and manifest that in front of everyone, the truth of the Scriptures comes alive that says “foreigners shall be your vinedressers” (Isa. 60:5).

Every tribe and tongue have a part in God’s great tapestry of building the nations. No tribe or ethnicity has a monopoly on building, planting, plowing and reaping. There’s no place that this truth is more elegantly highlighted than God’s bride, His church, was the Ekklesia that has been called to be the glory in the midst.

Push back in humility! Push back in truth! Push back in the Word of the Lord and in spite of the majority holding sway, there’s an end. Because the scripture says, “in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28) and “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27).

If the lepers, who were the minority when Elisha gave his prophetic word about a divine turnaround, recovered spoil of silver, gold and had their hunger stilled as the great Aramean army in their thousands that besieged Samaria fled in haste, recorded in the Bible, then God’s Word must be true today as it was in the ages. We thus need to move in that reality in this season so that the church, the minority, will become the majority.

“The tiniest group will become a mighty nation” (Isa. 60:22, NLT). {eoa}
