This is great stuff from Lou Engle…
A change of mindset is needed in the Body of Christ. We are not just going to a building on Sunday. We are joining an assembly, a spiritual body governing our cities, states, and nations, with Christ as our Head. We are not just leading a prayer session in our houses of prayer. We are gathering an assembly around the throne of God, and releasing leadership. We are binding principalities and powers. We are part of an ekklesia.
Understood properly, an ekklesia is a threat to every corrupt government, drug lord, rebellious king, and demonic principality. The ekklesia of Jesus is equipped with weapons. It is not on the defensive, but the offensive. Gates don’t move of themselves. When He says the gates of hell won’t prevail against His ekklesia, He’s identifying His people as an attacking body. We are going after the gates of hell. Whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Mt. 16:19). We’re in battle. We’re at war. Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, and neither are our weapons of warfare “carnal.” They are “mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:4).
We have been the “church” for too long. It’s time to build His ekklesia!
