Great minds think alike. trust me, they really do. And when they are namesakes, the combo is awesome. I’m just saying sha.
Anyways, today’s post is written by one Man/Leader I really respect. I doubt he is as old as I’m making him seem, but you should know him already.
So permit me to welcome Damilare (@dami_maverick) as he opens you’re eyes to another secret, rather another rhema you might never have caught. You can visit his blog here
I leave you to Mr Dami now. Be Inspired.
The Fulcrum (1)
1. The point on which a lever rests or is supported.
2. A thing that plays a central or essential role in an activity, event, or situation
At certain points in a man’s journey in life there are tiny pockets of opportunity I like to call pivots. These are critical issues, key situations on which the balance of destiny is hinged. To the untrained eye they are seemingly mundane occurrences which bear no signification. You could regard them as seasons of judgment that requires an importunate move from the individual.
First let us start with the pivot of Salvation.
Time circles round and grinds to a halt. Before you are two gardens, separated in time but connected by one single thread that runs through all of eternity – Adam. There are two of them, they stand face to face. Two Adams – one a living soul, the other a life-giving spirit 1 Corinthians 15:44-46. This is the fulcrum. The pivot on which humanity’s tragic tale revolves. Let us look into the last hours of the second Adam to gain a clearer picture.
As the clock spiraled down to the hour of blood, the son of Elyon knelt amidst the scattered shrubs and hedgerows of the garden of Gethsemane Matthew 26:35-37 and had a long talk with his Dad. This was no trivial chat, the bell was tolling, and the hangman’s noose was beckoning. The savior’s knees pressed hard against the craggy garden soil with his face bloodied from sweat mingled with blood and his knuckles tensed. It was as though the agony of millennia were being funneled into the mortal, kitschy frame of this carpenter from Nazareth.
One singular act of high treason had brought him to this point. The Man in Eden had opened up a box of insatiable appetite, a hunger, no a lust for the forbidden fruit. He had given his title deed over to the king of demons. Humanity’s will was now subject to the whims and caprices of the deceiver. That was why he was here (1 John 3:8). That was why he knelt on the stony, moss-ridden path hidden from sight. He, Christ, was here to correct the wrong perpetuated in that garden.
This was a critical moment. He could either grab the bull by the horns or whimper back to the safety of his mother. He could either go toe-to-toe with the horde of hell or hide in shame. He decided. He would lay down his own life; no one could dare take it from him. His voice sending tremors through the realm of spirits, he spoke to the hearing of the angelic audience and demagogue of demons … “thy will be done”
Everything hinges on Christ – the one who surrendered all to the will of the Father. What clearer picture can be painted, what better tale could be spun? The Christ walked to the cross and in that moment set in motion the ultimate prison break. It was his choice – he wasn’t murdered or assassinated. He laid down his life as a sacrifice John 10:15. For us our personal perspective and the level of priority we place on this act of ‘insane’ LOVE is our own PIVOT. How will you respond to such a show of audacious affection?
Consider now the current state of your life. Are you bedazzled by the wanton wealth of men? Are you caught in a web of seduction, lies and despicable deceit? Is your life riddled by emptiness and vanishing vanities? There is a wide road paved with the gaudy trinkets of man’s lusts, it appears to lead home but at the end of the street is the citadel of destruction.
The most critical decision you can ever make in your life is to TRUST in the death and resurrection of Elyon’s Son. This is the fulcrum! It shifts the balance of power in our favor. No guilt in life, no fear in death – this is the power of Christ in me. The Risen Lord resident in you is the hope of glory. Making this decision strips you of the old Adamic nature and clothes in the Robe of Righteousness sewn by the blood of the Lamb. Every other decision of Faith stems from this reality – that it is no longer you who live but Christ (the Second Adam).
What say you? How will you judge this matter? Is this to you the idle rambling of a fanatical writer? Or will you allow these words speak to you? Accepting and surrendering to the absolute Lordship of Christ and His work of redemption is the only decision worth making in this life.
The hour of blood is coming …
