Eph 6:10-12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
We live in a spiritual world that influences every aspect of our lives. Just because we can’t see spirits all the time does not mean they are not there. We are, and will continue to be, in an intense spiritual warfare until the time Christ returns. There is no such thing as a peaceful co-existence between the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light! There are only two spiritual kingdoms and you are either in one or the other. (Col 1:13)
Psalm 2:1-5“Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and rulers counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed.”
When the righteous live according to Godly standards, they bring conviction to, and put restraints upon, the unrighteous. When Gods servants speak out against adultery, abortion, same-sex marriage, homosexuality, divorce, pornography, drugs, and corruption - the unrighteous rage against these restraints. This has become very blatant over the last fifteen years. At the same time the church has forfeited much moral ground through apathy, complacency, and the lack of willingness to stand up and fight for what is right.
Militant, Merciful and Miraculous
The church is called a mystery in the book of Ephesians. (3:9-10) Paul reveals this mystery by portraying the church in a number of different ways: a Temple (2:21-22); a Family (3:14-15); a Body (4:15-16); a Bride (5:25-27, 32); and an Army (6:10-17). These are all different portraits of the church.
Ezekiel 37:4-10 “O dry bones hear the word of the Lord! So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them and they lived and stood upon their feet, an exceeding great army.”
The Revived Church is Militant as Well as Compassionate
Militant means to be engaged in warfare, aggressive in a cause. (Matt 11:12) Many people say they have faith, but they have no fight! Without fight, Caleb would never have lived and enjoyed his inheritances. Paul would never have finished his course with joy. We have to learn how to put on the whole amour of God and fight the good fight of faith, so we too can finish our course with joy!
Only A Revived Church Can:
Restore righteousness to a city, a state, and a nation (Prov 14:34)
Make ready a people prepared for the Lord (Luke 1:17)
Make Jesus Lord over all the earth (Ps 72:8)
We desperately need a Spiritual Awakening, and preferably before the next Canadian and USA national elections. We don’t want backslidden, lukewarm, biblically illiterate Christians voting on our future. We need a revived church that has repented, come back into its right mind, and is willing to fight for our land, our families, our freedom, and our future. We need an exceeding great spiritual army to emerge out of this heap of very dry bones.
Yours for a Revived Church and a Worldwide Spiritual Awakening!
