Keep your eyes open for spiritual danger; stand true to the Lord; act like men; be strong; and whatever you do, do it with kindness and love. I Corinthians 16:13-14, the Living Bible
Yes, the United States of America is under siege. The secular/ progressive movement has shouted those of faith down; calling them crazy, racist, homophobic hate mongers, and more. While the gay community has “come out of the closet” in the name of tolerance, Jews and Christians alike are being shoved into the very same closet, all in the name of “separation of church and state”. This kind of talk is designed to do one thing: divide and destroy the United States. This must not be permitted. Not on our watch, anyway.
Jesus told us these things would happen, and that we are to remember the world that hates us, hated Jesus first. We were told the right will be considered evil, and evil will be considered right (Isaiah 3:9-11; 5:20). But that does not mean we are to take all of this, shut up and crawl into some bunker somewhere. While we are told that the “prince of darkness” must prevail for a brief period, this does not mean we are to silently allow it to happen.
We are to boldly stand up for Jesus. We are to stand up to those that want us silenced; calmly, with passion and compassion. This is the time to market and promote Jesus: at work, at the grocery store, on the street corner. Jesus will be the only true light during this dark period. We will be the only ones shining that light.
Pray that Jesus gives you direction and courage in this matter. Some are senders, others are doers: all are important. Let the Holy Spirit guide you as to what you are to do. Pray that the enemies of God repent, and seek Jesus. Pray that America will be restored to that great, one nation under God that the world looks to; but also, that not our will, His will be done. Pray for God’s kingdom to come, and that His will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Pray for Christians and Jews around the world as all of us face more and more persecution. Pray we do these things in a Christ like manner: not judgmental, but with grace and love.
