Fasting is an activity of genuine Christianity. It is a propulsive pedestal into prayers of combustive potency. Fasting is like denying one’s self, and taking up one’s cross to follow the LORD. GOD is a Spirit. Being a genuine Christian is more or less like living in a physical world, while connected with the Spirit of GOD.
GOD does not eat physical food. That expense of self and flesh to offer prayers is like saying: LORD please, I am ready, I am serious, have mercy on me and help me.
Esther was a prominent example of this in the Scriptures. They needed to pray and they did so with a fast. Same for a king faced with three other kings, he – and the nation – fasted to seek the face of the LORD.
Fasting was probably alluded in Hebrews 12:4, “Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” What it could also mean is that not doing everything possible, in praying against besetting sins.
Apostle Paul was a fierce faster, and not just that, he did everything, and took every risk for the sake of the Gospel of Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:26|27, [In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils by [mine own] countrymen, [in] perils by the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
Fasting is personal. It is done with the acceptance of why – regardless that a group declared it, or if it was self-started.
Fasting is done within the boundaries of possible – health, etc. It is NOT by force no matter what, and there is often recognition of need, to participate.
The beginning of the year is a time the Redeemed Church starts their fast, praying for the year and also seeking the face of the LORD.
It seems like it is compulsory to fast. But like everything else, it is a choice, and must come out of personal will and need.
Following the crowd to do it, or doing it nominally can be a waste of time, if there is no recognition of why – or if doing it hypocritically.
Yes, there are some people who are hypocrites because they say what is right, but have no power to do it. Fasting can also be a means to pray – seriously for deliverance – against hypocrisy.
