America Under Siege

The Church seems to be so wrapped up in the Second Coming of Christ that it has blinded its eyes to a very clear and present danger.  Satan has released an unparalleled attack against our country.  Everything that this country was founded upon is under a well orchestrated assault.  Our morality has given way to immorality.  Spiritual reality has yielded to secular humanism.  Right has become wrong.  Truth is no longer relevant.  God’s two gender creation has given way to many different gender identities.  Freedom of Godly expression has been censored from much of the social media outlets.  Life was defined by God’s directive, but today man determines what is acceptable.  The reality that all living beings are determined by God has dwarfed to the point where man decides who is to live or who is to be aborted.  Satan is alive and well.  His methodology has completely snookered the Christian Church.

 

My concern is that some Believers are actually using the tactics that Satan has used to equip his pawns.  Personal attacks on individuals have been the spear point of his carefully devised plan of divide and conquer.  He has proposed that the wide doors of liberalism will soon over-shadow the narrow way of conservatism.  In response many Christians shoot their arrows of judgment against individuals instead of taking aim at what motivates their agendas.  When Believers attack people instead of representing the Kingdom of God through love, grace, and peace, we have lost our way.  This is not the time to point out the flaws on the stained robes of past politicians; rather a time to promote the God whom we are to represent.  Instead of using the social media to expose the already obvious imperfections of others, why not spend the time pecking the keys promoting who God really is! 

 

We need to be the illustrators of the Truth.  There needs to be a consciousness as to what God wants to attain through our commitment to Him.  We must never use the tactics that Satan has trained his followers to use.  Instead of putting down the soldiers of darkness, let us lift up the light that will cause an exposure to the real truth.  We have all the weapons necessary to curtail the enemies’ assault.  It is time for the Church to act like the Church.

 

Our country is under attack.  There has been corruption at its highest levels, and the Church is well aware of it.  We do not need to reiterate the obvious.  It is not time to top each other with new revelations of corrupt individuals.  Instead of standing out with our exposures of the enemy, let us stand up and display God’s uncompromising Truth!

 

FOOT NOTE: I am concerned over the number of Believers that are staging on the “rapture runway,” instead of arming themselves with the Word for what could become very difficult days ahead.  We sing, “I’ll Fly Away,” when we should be singing, “Onward Christian Soldiers.”  Is it asking too much to have Believers prepare themselves just in case the snatching away may not be when we hoped for?

I am a committed Christian.  I might even be called devout.  Most Christian I know are all very concerned with the way things are going in this Country.   One basic problem is that here in the United States of America, we've never had to deal with official, government sponsored anti-Christian religious persecution before, and we have no idea how to handle it.

   I suggest that we look in the Bible and see what God's Word has to say about it.  I think the following passage may be helpful:

 

   "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

    "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.   Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."

 (Ephesians 6:  10-20)

I suggest that we also pray that we totally unprepared American Christian will not find ourselves in the same situation as the Apostle Paul, when he wrote those words.

I ask this in Jesus Name.  Amen.
