Topic — The Strawberry Generation! [Friday, October 5, 2017]
Years ago, the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew described Singaporeans born from the 1980’s (eighties) onward as “The Strawberry Generation” because of their percieved lack of resilience and ruggedness in reaction to life’s battles. Those 3 words ” The Strawberry Generation” (TSG) is like lightening in a dry forest, especially as 2017 is running to the finishing tape line. I also call such a generation “The Joshua Generation” (TJG). This is the generation that has not seen wars, pain and hardship. Remember that the Joshua Generation was a generation that never suffered in the wilderness! they were born after Moses died and when Joshua took over! Yes, the Moses generation contended with many battles but Joshua generation were those born in the Promised Land of EASE and PLEASURE without serious battles! Indeed, similarly, many Singaporeans don’t have the experience of living in the World War II period and thus do not understand what hardship really means.
Due to this, they often lose the fighting spirit of their forefathers in overcoming life’s obstacles. But the Holy Ghost wants you to know that once you are born again, you bridge the gap between the Moses generation of bondage and wilderness life and the “the Joshua Generation” of mixed war and peace! Indeed, your being born again does not exclude you from war totally!
The Joshua Generation Is A Generation Of Mixed War And Peace (Pleasure)! That is why you cannot be described as being the STRAWBERRY GENERATION! 2 Tim 2:3 screams this: “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” ENDURANCE HARDNESS AS A SOLDIER! In fact, see Psalm 34:19: ” Many are the afflictions of the RIGHTEOUS but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”
As 2017 ends, remind the devil that you are not a weakling! Remind him that you are a soldier and a warrior! You have the spirit of the Lion of tribe of Judah! You are not afraid of battles and you don’t experience defeat because it is not in your DNA! yes, you are not a slave and cannot be oppressed because you have royal blood running in you! Tell the old, lying devil that you are a Priest and a king born to rule and prevail! Hold on and hold out!
