Being born into a Babylonian system of darkness, corruption, deceit, and thievery it can be challenging to imagine any other kind of life here on earth. This is why culture is so powerful, you do not realize how much you are apart of your environment (culture) until you go into another one. When I moved to Malaysia, the first three months I was there as a visitor. I was so excited about all the things I was seeing, eating and hearing, it was fun for me for it was new, but when I decided to move there that is when I realized I was American and they were Malaysian. We were all humans, both male and female but our cultures were so different.
When we go into a different culture, we can try and buck that culture, but it will only frustrate us, because that culture will not budge, so we have to conform to it in order to operate in it. We were born into Babylonian culture, that is why when we get saved many people do not conform to the kingdom culture of which Jesus is the only King, they try to buck it and then it doesn’t conform to them, they get frustrated and remain in the Babylonian culture. The kingdom of God is its own culture and it will not conform to our Babylonian ways, we must conform to the kingdom and when we do it will be the greatest choice we ever make.
God is releasing His presence, His power, His glory, so we come into the kingdom and conform to His culture. Psalm 43 says, “Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your tabernacle. Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy;” The Lord is sending Light and Truth to lead us out of Babylon into the kingdom where the culture is exceeding joy. We are in the greatest transfer of kingdoms since Israel left Egypt. I hope you choose to conform to the kingdom culture because it is righteousness, peace and joy and you are going to love it.
