Inside Out will turn the WORLD Upside Down

I heard this morning that the only change possible is from the inside out.  There was such a song,  Hillsong. 

Yet, there is a truth in it that is deeper and wider than most of us are willing to admit.  On a personal level change has to start with the innermost being.  The heart.  Unless there is a heart change nothing else can change. 

Then there is the "out of your innermost being" part of us.. the part that must be filled to flow.  From the inside out.

Eventually that becomes a change of mind.  Without a change of heart no change of mind can occur.

To this point I can hear you say, so what, "everybody knows that". (Geico commercial)

To change a city you have to change people who make up the city. You don't do that by telling them what's wrong with them or the city, but by infiltrating for change from the inside out.  If people are not challenged, encouraged, confronted, instructed, directed, towards a better life, they won't go.  That means less telling and more showing.  It requires personal involvement.  That's the hard part.

To change a State, you have to have cities that demonstrate how the personal heart changes, that lead to mind changes that lead to city changes have manifested.  It starts inside and grows out.

That's why a large demonstration against cruelty, aberration, illegality never works.  If the enemy has so captured the hearts and minds of those who are bent on doing what they do, no amount of protest ever changes anything. It begins at the heart.

One must take back the reigns from the deceived.  This must be done from the inside out.  This is infiltration. They cannot be allowed to form the agenda.  This is not about politics, this is about cultural decline and degradation.  The devil learned long ago how to creep into peoples hearts for evil and make the reset of the mind to allow people to think it is OK to act and think like that.  Look around you, you see it all around.

The pattern the Lord is calling for to reach the world is infiltration, not confrontation.  Even Islam, as evil as it is, can only be reversed by infiltration.  Sure war kills off the radical..but leaves the rest in sin and abandon.

It was said of the brothers in Acts 17:3  -- "And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also"

How did they earn that accusation?  It wasn't by protest, it wasn't by anything other than infiltrating the hearts and minds of lost souls.

What the Lord is asking ME today is, "Do you have what it takes to turn the world upside down?"
"Do you love enough to let me change their hearts thru your infiltration of their lives?"
