The War Is Raging, Are You Ready?!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

There is a darkness in the world, an evil which is seeking to destroy what is good.  It is becoming more and more apparent with each passing day that this evil is manifesting itself in many different ways. 

As we think about the mass murder and wounding of hundreds of innocent civilians at a country music concert in Las Vegas we should be wondering just what was it that promoted such hatred and violence against these people.  When we see civilian protests becoming violent and hateful we should be asking ourselves just what it is behind this ungodly behavior?  And when we see masses of Americans in protest and rebellion against the President of the United States we should question their intent, after-all, we may not like who is President, however we should respect the office no matter who holds it at the time since it was God who placed them there!

Isaiah 59:7

“Their feet run to evil, and they are swift to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their highways.”

We don’t always get what we want in life, things don’t always go our way, however, as adults living in society we must be able to live as self-controlled adults and not as angry uncontrollable children, doing whatever we can to get our way!  This is why we have a democratic form of government in America, we have the right to vote, and as such we must honor the decisions of those votes, if not then what is the point?  We then go from democracy to anarchy, from a stable society to an unstable society, from freedom to captivity!

Revelation 13:10

He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The fall of man is nothing new, however, man has been shown God and His attributes, it has been manifest in all of us, we have no excuse.

Romans 1:18-23

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

Most people have chosen not to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a debased mind.

Romans 1:28-32

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

There is an undertone in society today, a sense of self-gratification, of self-fulfillment, of self-aggrandizement.  It is a belief of ones self greater than those around them, that self is greater than the lives of others, even at the expense of others lives in order to promote self and selfish motives!  People are becoming more unrighteous, violent, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful, and disobedient.

This rebellion is against the Almighty God of the universe, they are sins entrenching the world!

All of these things are evil, they are of the devil himself, evil, wicked, and unholy, his is to steal, kill, and destroy!  He is the father of all lies, leading into deceptions and untruths, leading to destruction! 

When society turns to believe more in self than it does for the good of humanity then the world we live in is headed for a downfall of biblical proportions!  And when society begins to fall then government will become more and more oppressive and controlling, a cycle in which one feeds upon the other.

Ecclesiastes 7:7

“Surely oppression drives the wise into madness, and a bribe corrupts the heart.”

When we cannot honor the rights of every American to speak freely about their beliefs, then we are becoming more and more like a dictatorship, a totalitarian state!  We see it in the universities, when conservative speakers are not only censored for what they have to say, but are physically attacked and the crowds become violent and aggressive.  We have also seen it when Christian leaders have been censored from speaking out about the gospel and about issues in the world around them.  Censorship is taking away our rights as Americans, it is rewriting the Constitution as it was originally written and meant to be.

We also see it when many professional football players kneel down during the national anthem.  I understand that they are trying to make a point, and perhaps it is a valid point, however, is this really the right way to get their point across?!  I for one do not see it that way, but see it as disrespecting the rights and freedoms we as Americans have due to the brave souls who have sacrificed their lives so that we have the ability to do such things in the first place!  Is this really what we want to be teaching our children?

The turning of society from good to bad reminds me of a verse in scripture:

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

It is at this point in society when we call evil good and good evil, when we put darkness for light and light for darkness, that we are headed for danger!  When society replaces God with self, when people become more important in their own eyes, then God will give them what they deserve.

Psalm 28:3-5

Do not take me away with the wicked
And with the workers of iniquity,
Who speak peace to their neighbors,
But evil is in their hearts.
Give them according to their deeds,
And according to the wickedness of their endeavors;
Give them according to the work of their hands;
Render to them what they deserve.
Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,
Nor the operation of His hands,
He shall destroy them
And not build them up.”

America was founded upon God Almighty and His principles, when we wander away from Him then we shall pay the price.  When we do not follow the ways of the Lord then we are following the ways of the world, and we all know who the ruler of the world is, Satan!

Evil is manifesting itself into all realms of life, not only in major metropolitan areas, but everywhere!  Evil acts, evil deeds and schemes, ungodly pacts and alliances, we see it all around us if we open our eyes and discern good from evil.

Satan knows that if he can get us to doubt, if he can get us to believe his lies, then he has won the battle.  He often places doubts and thoughts into our minds which are ungodly, beliefs which are untrue, and tells us that the bible is a book of fairy tales, merely anecdotal and allegorical.

We must stand firm on the word of God, be grounded in Jesus Christ, and know just who we are and why we are here.  We must be able to discern good from evil and evil from good, to know the spirits and how to test them.  The times are upon us when we must be able to give an account for what we believe in and why, a time when it is vitally important to remain steadfast and true to God Almighty!  He is our Savior, our Shelter, and our Provider!  Amen.

This is bible prophecy coming to pass, when the hearts of men will grow cold, lovers of themselves, proud, arrogant, disobedient, unloving, unforgiving, without self-control, despisers of good, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God!

2 Timothy 3:1-5

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

The battle is on and the war is raging!  Put on the whole armor of God daily. Write His words upon your heart.  Know that He is with you and walk with Him daily.   He will never leave us or forsake us, but we must not leave Him, if we are not walking with Him that is our own fault, He is always with us and for us!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  3. Thanks for your comment Christine!

    There are hidden forces at work behind much of what we see happening in the world, even people who control the masses, events, and tragedies. It is all leading to the ushering in of the Antichrist, led by Satan. Unfortunately many or should I say most people don’t see it, they are blinded to the truth, being led into destruction. Satan is hard at work and he has made gains in this world by leaps and bounds!

    May the good Lord open the eyes and ears of the blind to the truth so that they may also be ushered into the kingdom of God!

    God bless! Maranatha!
