A majority of the characters in the movie had one dominant virtue which helped them to choose a faction to join for the rest of their lives. Once you joined the faction, you became like everyone else in that group which made you normal. What made the Divergents so different was the fact they possessed multiple virtues which made it hard for them to belong to just one group. This difference made them a threat to what was considered a perfect society. A society where everyone found their place and stayed in their place.
What happens when you don't play by the rules and stay in your place? What happens when you begin to question the effectiveness of systems that have been in place for years? What happens when you learn there is another way that will free people from the bondage they have been in for generations? I will tell you what happens....you become a threat that must be SILENCED! If you can not be silenced, you must be destroyed.
I believe I'm talking to a few people out there today that have been labeled as Divergents in the church. Where some were satisfied with just following the program, you wanted God to come in and have His way. You weren't concerned about protocols, formalities and denominations, but you wanted to worship God in spirit and in truth. You didn't want church as usual, you wanted an experience on another level with God that would leave you changed and FREE! Who am I talking to?
Many of you have found yourself silenced. You have been removed from ministries in the name of Jesus. You have been considered dangerous due to your changed mindset. Your name has been destroyed and many kingdom doors have been closed due to your failure to "stay in your place". Many of you have wandered around in the wilderness for years now trying to figure out what you did wrong. I am here to announce that you are not the problem...You Are The Solution!
All this time you have been accepting the opinion that maybe something was wrong with you because you wouldn't conform. There wasn't anything wrong with you! You have a heart for God and the things of the Kingdom. You have a heart to serve the people of God. God has been raising up a people that have a heart for Him and positioning them for ministry. God called you for such a time as this.
The world is tired of seeing organized religion that is so focus on the programs, protocols and formalities that they have loss God's power, presence, and love. People are hungry and thirsty for the Word of God and a true demonstration of God's love and power. God is looking for those that are available, willing and humble enough to be used for His glory. While you have been in the desert wandering around, God has been preparing you to be used greatly in the ministry. It's time to shake off the past and walk into this new season.
You were once an outcast, but God has a place for you in the Kingdom that will accept you and utilize the gifts He has placed in you. No longer will you be quiet, but God will give you a platform to speak the things He has placed in your heart to uplift those in the Kingdom. No longer will you be punished for not following protocol because this place will be led by God's spirit. This is restoration time and souls are being restored. You are no longer lost, but found! Your joy and purpose is being renewed!
I'm so happy for you! It has been a long time coming, but change is here! You are being released to walk into your purpose! It's your time and your season for breakthrough! I celebrate with you today because you survived the things that tried to destroy you! Glory To God!!
