“Spiritual warfare is genuine. There is a furious, fierce, and ferocious battle raging in the realm of the spirit between the forces of God and the forces of evil. Warfare happens every day, all the time. Whether you believe it or not, you are on a battlefield. You are in warfare.”
― Pedro Okoro
In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
Paul goes mainstream
When Paul was in the synagogues, there was no transformation. The members of the temple were adamant against him. When he moved to the lecture halls, Paul experienced doors opening.
A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power. (Acts 19:19-20)
How many pieces of silver was Jesus sold for? Jesus was sold for only 30 pieces of silver. This was the value of the life of our King. However, this passage shows how 50,000 pieces of silver worth of books on magic, sorcery, and artifacts were used to work magic. We get to see a picture of the culture Ephesus had. This culture was enslaved by superstition, various forms of witchcraft, magic, and sorcery.
When Paul hit the mainstream education system, or by today’s standards – the secular schools, it was there that the people heard the message. Paul brought about a cultural change by targeting the school.
The culture was engulfed with sorcery and witchcraft. But the people burned 50,000 pieces of the silver worth of magical arts. We see transformation being brought into this account.
When you affect culture, you start dethroning the enemy that is there. One of the reasons God cares about your career and wants to partner with you for the success of your job is because He is raising an army of ministers who can reach out to the marketplaces. Until you have a plan to affect change and transformation from the inside out, it’s talk. This is why you are Insiders. You can only influence transformation from the inside.
God may call some to teach in the Bible schools. Some are called to furnish saints. However, God is also calling people to teach in mainstream education.
