“Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels” – Revelation 12:7
War will always rage between the two great sovereignties until one or other be crushed. Peace between good and evil is impossibility; the very pretence of it would, in fact, be the triumph of the powers of darkness. Michael will always fight; his holy soul is vexed with sin, and will not endure it. Jesus will always be the dragon’s foe and that not in a quiet sense, but actively, vigorously, with full determination to exterminate evil. All His servants, whether angels in heaven or messengers on earth, will and must fight; the are born to be warriors – at the cross they enter into covenant never to make truce with evil; they are a warlike company, firm in defense and fierce in attack. The duty of every soldier in the army of the Lord is daily, with all his heart, and soul, and strength, to fight against the dragon.
The dragon and his angels will not decline the affray; they are incessant in their onslaughts, sparing no weapon, fair or foul. We are foolish to expect to serve God without opposition: the more zealous we are, the more sure we are to be assailed by the myrmidons of hell. The church may become slothful, but not so her great antagonist; his restless spirit never suffers the war to pause; he hates the woman’s seed, and would fain devour the church if he could. The servants of Satan partake much of the old dragon’s energy, and are usually an active race. War rages all around, and to dream of peace is dangerous and futile.
Glory be to God, we know the end of the war. The great dragon shall be cast out and for ever destroyed, while Jesus and they who are with Him shall receive the crown. Let us sharpen our swords tonight, and pray to the Holy Spirit to nerve our arms for conflict. Every man to his post, ye warriors of the cross, and may the Lord tread Satan under your feet shortly!
I should as soon expect a farmer to prosper in business who contented himself with sowing his fields and never looking at them till harvest, as expect a believer to attain much holiness who was not diligent about his Bible reading, his prayers, and the use of his Sundays.
Just like King Herod, now you too can give the gift of murder this Christmas. Planned Parenthood is offering Christmas gift certificates that can be used for abortions. Check out the news video by clicking here.
While just a couple days ago over 100 people died in India at the hands of merciless, bloodthirsty Muslims (and the city is still currently under siege as of the writing of this post), today in America a 34 year-old Wal-Mart employee was killed after being trampled to death when a mob of shoppers broke down the doors to get their hands on the holiday shopping bargains. What was this mans life worth?
America, oh America, what have you become?While the world is in turmoil we numb ourselves on video games, text messaging, television, and worshiping our pop idols who attend 20 million dollar parties. We simply don’t get it, do we?Today we eat, drink, be merry, and shop till we drop, yet we have no idea that tomorrow we die.
And while we’re out consuming, consuming, consuming, we have received yet another “invitation” from the bloodthirsty terrorists to “embrace Islam.”
And He told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man was very productive.”And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’“Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.’And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.”‘“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’Luke 12:16-20
A little plain-speaking would do a world of good just now. These gentlemen desire to be let alone. They want no noise raised. Of course thieves hate watch-dogs, and love darkness. It is time that somebody should spring his rattle, and call attention to the way in which God is being robbed of his glory, and man of his hope. – C.H. Spurgeon
While America celebrated Thanksgiving, India was reeling from a coordinated attack which targeted Americans and Britons. While we in the States were making plans, preparing meals, and spending time with family, it seems that the “religion of peace” was conducting a “ministry outreach” in India.
I don’t want to sound like an alarmist, and this is certainly not a “thus saith the Lord,” but America better brace itself because this relentless Hall-spawned advancement of Islam is going to visit our shores real soon . . . again.
Sadly the masses have fallen back to sleep since 9/11 partly because President George W. Bush (whether you like him or not) has taken the fight to the terrorists–keeping the Islamic Jihadists busy in Iraq and Afghanistan and keeping them out of our cities and our neighborhoods. But with a newly elected president who’s tougher on the Second Amendment and the unborn than on terrorism, I hope that at least some of us will be prepared for what’s about to befall our nation.
Those who want to see this nation (and Israel) eliminated will most certainly take another swipe at us once our new president takes office. Especially when you consider that Barrack Hussein Obama sat under the intolerant, anti-American, hate-filled, socialist, black liberation rhetoric of Jeremiah Wright for twenty years. It’s difficult to listen to that vitriolic ranting for two decades (against the very country you live in) and not be influenced.
Most terrorist experts agree that America will be attacked again, and it’s not an if but a when. Anyone who’s paying attention to what’s going on (and not too preoccupied with Fantasy Football or American Idol) can see the handwriting on the wall. So my question is this: What do you think the next attack on America will be by the “religion of peace“?
