Holy revolt

Revolt does not rise up for no reason, from nothing or as a good idea. It begins when we are overcome with a violent reaction to some injustice we are going through.

In contrast to people with a passive faith, those who have the spirit of revolt search for the rights that were won for them on the cross with grit, determination and boldness.

For them it is all or nothing, life or death, since God swore that His promises would come true for Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
Anyone with a spirit of revolt has a sense of indignation at the injustice he is going through and refuses to continue living in it.
He prefers death.

An example of this is when Abraham was tired of waiting and said this to the Lord:

— O Lord God, what will you give me, for I continue childless…? Genesis 15:2 (ESV)

Moses said:

— If You will treat me like this, kill me at once, if I find favor in Your sight, that I may not see my wretchedness. Numbers 11:15 (ESV)

Gideon said:

— If the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us… Judges 6:13 (ESV)

Each of them had reached their limit of despair. They were no longer afraid for their lives or the lives of their families. It was everything or nothing.

Because of this, the answer came QUICKLY:

To Abraham it was:

And behold, the word of the Lord came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir.” And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Genesis 15:4,5

To Moses it was:

Gather for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel… Numbers 11:16

For Gideon it was:

Go in this might of yours and save Israel from the hand of Midian… Judges 6:14

The attitude of anyone going through injustice should be revolt. Develop a hatred for the root of your injustice.

The Campaign of Israel is for people with a spirit of revolt.
