Sometimes we volley verbal cyber-shots like bullets, as if we aren’t all on the same side of the human condition, fighting a common enemy in a spiritual war that has been raging since the dawn of time.
Every human being birthed becomes embroiled in this war simply by virtue of breathing. Unfortunately, that’s where many will be lost…
…if not for God-revering, Christ-honoring, Spirit-led Christians.
Most have the attention span of a gnat- we like quickies; conditioned for instant gratification with little to no effort, we devour sound bites, memes, and videos. If the screen doesn’t change within milliseconds or we aren’t entertained, we lose focus and move on.
Similarly, if truth doesn’t support our agenda, desires and opinions– well then, it isn’t truth, its religion; and God knows, nobody likes religion. Not even God!
So, if YOU were the enemy of the One True God, how would you undermine and decimate those He created and loves? How might you work to infiltrate the hearts, minds and lives of humans?
Well you wouldn’t be obvious, betraying your true intent. You’d appeal to the nature, base desires and the intellect; you’d simply give the option and permission to have it your way. No rules. No regulations. No right or wrong. No firm hard lines….
Human nature, you understand, is contrary to God and so human nature is easy for an enemy to appeal; deception with intent to kill.
God is not the author of confusion.
It isn’t God whom hates and anyone following Him who claims otherwise is deceived at best; at worst, not of Him. God did not institute religion- He gave His Word and sent His Son to pattern relationship. That is the fundamental difference between Christianity and every religion that has ever been conceived in the heart of man, religions birthed out of our common enemy’s hatred and authored by him as well.
Divide and conquer – two sides of the same coin; the race card works well, religion too. Neither of those is new yet like ignorant children who haven’t been given millenniums to figure it out, we fall for it EVERY TIME. Who hasn’t heard the wisdom, “united we stand, divided we fall.”
At this point, does anyone really believe the state of our unstable world- of America– is only about poor leadership? Do we really believe everything will be fixed if we just have the right man at the helm?
America, if it hadn’t been an Obama, it would have been another.
If it wasn’t ISIS and radical Islam, it would be another.
Lay aside your own opinions and beliefs for a moment and as objectively as possible look at the extreme measures recorded in the Bible, performed by God to bring stability back to a dying world without understanding….and understand.
The Sovereign God of the Bible loves you. God’s enemy hates you. Our COMMON ENEMY is not fallen man; he’s a fallen angel, he’s the man in the mirror! The only real change that will make any difference is the change that comes from a right understanding of who God is and who we are in relation to Him. It’s the change that takes place from within that will transform without- and bring positive transformation to our respective lives and countries.
It’s change that begins with US.
Honesty disarms God.
Go to God. Tell Him the truth. What is that for you?
Are you on a fence? Of another religion? Trying to opt out by not making a choice, simply living life while you have it and believing there’s nothing more after death? An atheist? Are you willing to chance eternal death and damnation based on human intelligence- yours or others- societal climates, or worse, man-made religions? Are you willing to chance the lives of those you love? Your children?
Coming to know the One True God is as simple as confessing a desire to know Him. He said, “you will seek Me and you will find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”
Of all the famous people you’d like to meet or know, would your Creator not be at the top of that list?
The loving God of the Bible does not desire religious people or religious prayers. He desires people- all people. Anything He requires of you personally to fulfill His grand plan He will reveal to you in relationship.
Nothing and no one is worth being separated from God for all eternity. Don’t be fooled- reject the lie, embrace the Truth. Embrace relationship.
May God bless you, keep you and protect you in the name and for the sake of His Son, Jesus.
“…For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life. Here’s the point. God didn’t send His Son into the world to judge it; instead, He is here to rescue a world headed toward certain destruction..
No one who believes in Him has to fear condemnation, yet condemnation is already the reality for everyone who refuses to believe because they reject the name of the only Son of God.
