We are moving from being amazed by sorcery and all things related to Baal worship to the message of the kingdom and the signs that follow! Church, we have an invitation from God to repent of our sorcery and step into healing the land with signs and the gospel of the kingdom. We can’t have both. We have to repent of the one in order to see the healing of the land through the other. Come on church, 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If MY people, who are called by MY name…” we are the key to the change from sorcery to signs that follow. Church the awakening is waiting for us to repent, to stop waivering between two opinions. We must choose, the fire has fallen, the good news has been preached, we have no reason not to believe. Repent of trusting in something, anything other than God. Repent of trusting what the television news says and not what the good news of the Bible says. Repent of looking to the stock market for security, rather than to the storehouses of heaven. Repent means to change the way you think, transfer what you trust back to God! This is what will heal our land and bring about the change from sorcery to signs that follow.
Phillip saw the this repentance happen in Samaria, “Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was great joy in that city. Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery” (Acts 8:5-11). We are living in biblical days, so we must do biblical stuff and repentance is very biblical. Repentance was our salvation and continues to be our salvation from sorcery to signs that follow.
