In America today most people tend to look at and to
politics and politicians as either the problem or the solution. In
truth, though, the nature of our struggles is spiritual. The Apostle
Paul points this out in Ephesians 6:12;
we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present
darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."
other words, the devil is real, he is the ruler of this world, (John
12:31: 14:30; 16:11), and it is he and his minions that oppose us.
this is true, and because it is also true that America was founded upon
Christianity, Americans are being constantly pressured by the enemy of
our souls to compromise the standards of God and capitulate to sin and
has always been the case, but today as never before, we are seeing that
these pressures are real and that they are having an effect. This past
election offers many examples of the way this spiritual warfare is playing out in America today. Here are just 2:
until this year, every time the issue of same sex marriage had been
placed on the ballot, it had been rejected. This year voters in 4 states
came down in favor.
Voters in 2 states passed measures legalizing the use of marijuana for "recreational" purposes.
the Founders often stated, this nation was founded upon the twin
pillars of morality and Christianity. Obviously, this foundation is
crumbling before our very eyes. If America is to survive and prosper
again, biblical morality must first be restored. This won't come via
decree or legislation from Washington. It must be a grassroots, bottom
up movement. And that can only happen by a powerful movement of the Holy
Spirit as we, His people, repent and pray.
who oppose us fight hard. They do so because they have no hope of
anything better than this world to look forward to. But we have the
certain hope of eternal life in paradise, a hope more powerful than the
devil and all his minions.As I see it, the work of the patriot is to
offer this hope to the world. What better time than this Christmas
season to recommit ourselves to doing just that!
