Over the past decade the division between people in the United States of America has grown ever so deep. This division seemed to have started during the Obama administration, or at least it developed and grew into a sleeping giant during his time in office!
The leftist agenda has propagated hatred and violence throughout the country, it promotes an ideology of world views which undermine the sovereignty of individual nations, it seeks to destroy the fabric of American society as we have known it for hundreds of years, and it’s plan is not for individual governments but for a one world government.
The underlying force behind this evil agenda is none other than Satan himself! Those who support this ideology are anti-Christ and anti-America. They stand not for what is righteous and holy, but for what is unrighteous and unholy! Theirs is not for peace but for disruption, chaos and confusion, and their plan is one which is sinister in nature.
How many times have we seen violence erupting at supposedly peaceful rallies and protests in America over the past few years? So many that I cannot keep track! How many groups of people represent this evil agenda? I’m not sure, but they seem to be growing in numbers daily, Antifa being one of the most prominent at this time. They claim to want peace but are anything but peaceful! And you shall know them by their fruits!
There are many underlying ideologies which are at play here, Communism, Socialism, Humanism, Elitism, Hedonism, Occultism, Satanism, etc., there are many, many more including the Islamic ideology. The point is that these ideologies all play into the hands of unrighteousness, they all seek the destruction of what is good, what is right, and what is holy. They are all part of a leftist agenda, they all seek the destruction of America, and they are all headed in the same direction, the unification of a One World Government!
What we are seeing happening in America with this division is appalling, it seeks to destroy the American way of life, to destroy Christianity, to replace it with everything that Christianity is not! This is why we have seen cases of the world persecuting Christians in America for standing by their faith, for upholding the word of God, for living out their faith as we are told to do in scripture.
The division in America is coming to a head, violence is increasing, tensions are rising, and if left unchecked could very well lead to a civil war! Seems impossible in this day and age, just as it probably did during the Civil War in 1861. However, the tensions between those who seek God and His ways and those who want anything and everything but is growing by the day.
The Constitution of the United States of America gives its citizens the right to worship their religion, yet those rights are being taken away! And when the rights of American citizens are taken away from them then what good is the Constitution?! If the government allows people of faith to be trampled upon, allows them to be treated like aliens in their own country, then what good is the government? And when the government condones, supports, and enforces laws that are in violation of God’s will, laws which are an abomination to Him, then how will the government stand? As believers in Jesus Christ we are to support our government, we are to stand behind it, however we do not have to stand behind laws which are ungodly and unholy, laws which are in opposition to God and His ways! God always comes first! Remember Daniel and the lion’s den? Daniel was a very godly man, he disobeyed the law of the land by praying to God three times daily, yet he supported his king, Darius.
This is where we are today, increasing tensions and divisions, laws which are ungodly, societal decline, Christians being persecuted for living their faith, and the Constitution being trampled upon! How much longer can this go on before the bow breaks? How much longer before these violent protests turn into outright wars? Before the left decides to unrelentingly attack people of faith, believers in Jesus Christ, without a cause?
Jesus was attacked and persecuted for no reason and we will be also, for nothing more than believing in God and His ways, for believing the truth and standing by faith!
Satan seeks to divide and destroy, to steal and to kill, and that is exactly what is happening in America and also in other parts of the world. His is confusion and chaos, lies and the twisting of the truth. He blinds of the eyes of the unrighteous and hardens the hearts of the wicked. He is a counterfeit and an imposter, a murderer, a liar, and a thief! He is the leader of this world, the prince of the power of the air. Those not of God cannot see the ploys of the evil one, nor can they understand his sinister schemes! They cannot see the things of the spirit nor do they understand for theirs is folly.
We can fight back and we should! Our number one weapon against the enemy is prayer. But we can also do what is right in the world, we can make a difference, we can protest peacefully, we can let our representatives in government know what we want and what we don’t want. We can stand for what is righteous and holy, we can show the world that there is a better way, we can share the gospel of Jesus Christ!
All of the people in the world were created by God, in His image, and He wishes for no one to perish but for all to come to repentance and have eternal life! People on the left, people on the right, Gays, Transgenders, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Atheists, Agnostics, all people can come to God, all can come to repentance in Jesus Christ, all can be saved! This is God’s will for no one to perish!
I pray for peace in the world, I pray for the good Lord to soften the hearts of those in rebellion to Him, for their eyes to see and their ears to hear. I pray for them to come to the knowledge of the truth, for them to come to repentance, for them to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! In Jesus mighty name, Amen.
I know that things in this world will only get worse, but that does not stop me from doing what is right, from seeking peace, from doing what I can in the name of the Lord for His will! As long as I am here on earth then I will seek God’s will, I will do what is righteous and holy with the Spirit of the Lord working both in me and through me. I will do my best to love my enemies, to pray for them, to help them in their time of need!
LORD God in heaven hear my prayers, give us all a heart for you, help us to love you more by loving those around us, by even loving those who hate us and come against us. Gives us the wisdom, strength and courage to perform your will on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
