"Bud Lighting" Will Backfire




As I was perceiving what some are calling “Bud Lighting,” the Spirit of God began to minister to me about how it will backfire if we’re not careful.


When we fight battles with physical weapons, we have knelt to the level of the enemy. We have stepped out of our authority and we have given ground to the kingdom of this world.


Efforts like “Bud Lighting” are based on fear and anger, not the Spirit of love.


We are not called to fight out of our fear, but out of our love. We have the Spirit of God. We don’t need to break a sweat!


What happens when we bow to the enemy’s level? He responds with even more of what we are seeking to fight.


Do we really believe that calling out companies for transgender and LGBTQ friendly politics will reduce sin? Actually, it makes the sin look more reasonable. Because we are not coming from a heart of love.


We are seeking to preserve the things we prefer about this world. We are actually failing to fight for God’s Kingdom.


God’s Kingdom is displayed by Spiritual power. Not words or deeds.



1 Corinthians 4:20 (CSB)

"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power."



Imagine if we are spending our time “stomping” the enemy’s attacks in our carnal and finite understanding rather than with spiritual weapons. We are still going to get a swift and aggressive response. We will get “more of the same” of what we were initially trying to stop.


That’s why God’s people must step out of our flesh and into our authority in prayer.


Where are the all-night prayer meetings targeting the transgender agenda in the spirit ? This is perversion and sexual immorality. It’s a spiritual root, not natural.


As long as we stoop to the enemy’s level, meaning attacking our issues with our emotions, out of our pride, we will instigate more issues and stronger issues.


One of unintended consequences of our soulish battle against the kingdom of darkness, is this:


The world begins to appear to walk in greater love and kindness than we do.


When we lack humility, we embrace pride. That means we are fighting the enemy with the weapon he invented!!


We’re trying to fight the enemy with his own strategy. We can’t win on his terms. We must win by honor through humility. The world will be more likely to honor us, when we embrace humility.


Proverbs 15:33 (NKJV)

"The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility."



Less talk, more power. Less debate, more sacrifice.


We are called to embrace the strategy of humble submission and sacrifice.


It’s what Jesus modeled. And what Jesus instructed.



Matthew 5:38-48 (NKJV)

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’


39 “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.


40 “If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also.


41 “And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.


42 “Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.


43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’


44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,


45 “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.


46 “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?


47 “And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?


48 “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
