TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

You are dangerous!

More dangerous than you realize to the plans of the enemy.  The instant you believed in Jesus Christ, you were armed with a powerful weapon: your faith in God.  The power of God makes you unstoppable!

Your faith in God makes you unpredictable because the enemy can no longer guess what you are going to do. Your allegiance is with God  who now directs you and with God’s power you can do anything. Should you start sharing this faith with others, there is no telling where you will go and who you will impact. You could tear whole nations out of the enemies grasp, You could infuse the very core of society with the Love of God!

Can you imagine what would happen if the whole of Vancouver believed in God and loved each other?  Crime would vanish, homelessness would disappear, churches would be so full we’d have to use stadiums to meet on Sundays. The economy would take a hit, because people would care about each other than making money, yet they'd be no one unemployed or poor.

The world as we know it would be upside down. You have the power to change the world. This is what makes you dangerous! This is why the enemy fears you.

Your faith in God carries the power to turn the world upside down”
