Jesus has an agenda; it is peace between humanity and God through His redemptive act at Calvary, dying vicariously to save us all and His subsequent resurrection from the dead. That process is called “the gospel” or “good news.” God purposed to unite all people and God that one way:
“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself” (John 12:32).
“…having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in ONE all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth – in Him” (Ephesians 1:9-10 – caps mine)
That is what He is all about; it is a single purpose, a solitary agenda. He will have it done. He will see it through. He expects His people, the church, to do its part in fulfilling the order, the “Great Commission:”
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20 – caps mine).
“Anyone who is not with Me is against Me, and anyone who does not gather with Me scatters” (Matthew 12:30).
Either we are gathering people unto Jesus or we are scattering people away from Jesus. We are either devoting our lives to bringing peace between people and God via the gospel, or we are doing something else – perhaps even devoting ourselves as “social justice warriors” (SJWs for short) who, while decrying hate in others are its very paragon.
We cannot serve a humanly-conceived organization, whether it be a political party’s immoral, sinful, agenda, or any organization that assists or promotes an ungodly, humanistic, often Marxist-socialist, racist, ideology such as Antifa, BLM, KKK, Proud Boys, Skinheads or any other similar group. Despite their claims to the contrary they are dedicated to promoting civil strife, jealousy, hatred, theft, vandalism, blasphemy, murder and chaos among people. The two agendas, Christ’s and that of such groups, is at total variance, diametric opposites, and, as Jesus said, we cannot serve two masters (Matthew 6:24).
If you are a Christian and are a participant in, or promoter of, such groups, whether assisting by word of mouth or monetary means, or both, get out of it as soon as you can. Repent of your misguidedness today. If you refuse and continue supporting them you will, as Gamaliel warned his people, “found even to be fighting against God” (Acts 5:39). You will lose and lose huge. I am no prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I can read.
Mock this if it pleases you, laugh it off as a fanatic’s ravings, but I am speaking the truth in love.
We are either gathering people together in Christ Jesus, regardless of color, class, culture, ethnicity, economic status or anything else, or we are “scattering” contributing to the division, hate-mongering, divisiveness that grips our nation and the world.
Are you on board with Jesus Christ as a Christian in heart sharing His goals of world peace through His gospel? Or are you riding the Titanic as a SJW, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Socialist, Communist, etc. and their agendas as that which gives primary meaning to your life, its direction, fulfillment, and sense of purpose? Can you be honest with yourself for a moment?
Jesus Christ gathers souls and so do the godly. Ungodly people scatter souls with hate, strife, and division.
Do we gather with Him, or scatter?
