Be Fearless in Your Response

Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains

In the thick of the war is not the time to freak out.  
And we are in a war.

The new year has certainly started out with a bang…the heavy crashing of murderous sledge hammer, that is.   New York is proving itself to be as misguided as California with the election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, genderless babies, and the celebration of abortion even up to nine months of pregnancy, purportedly only if the mother’s life is in danger, but we all know it is just another step toward how far the devil intends to go with killing our youth, which is as far as debased minds will let him.  As far as infanticide?   We are already there.

The same people who will imprison and heavily fine a person for killing turtles or eagles growing in an egg celebrate the legalization of killing babies growing in the womb.

These are the same people who fight Donald Trump’s every move, proving there is a far deeper reason for the continued divisive backlash, even two years into his presidency.   There is but one word for it:  demonic.   The fight isn’t Democrats vs Republicans.   The fight is the evil one who is trying desperately to destroy this free country and our freedom to worship God openly and without fear vs those who would worship God in spirit and in truth.

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.  They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.

Romans 1:28-31 ESV

The crazier the world gets, the more important it is to remember our role as true believers.   We must be praying. Fasting.  Diligently studying the Word of God so that we hear His voice and know His will.  We can’t be looking at New York or California, or all the madness in between, getting into the fray in a worked-up frenzy and expect to be a mighty warrior in the Army of God.   We must be poised to take this country back instead of throwing our hands up in dismay while evil chokes out the last breaths of our freedom.

None of these current events caught God by surprise.   He is still in control, still on the throne, and He still answering prayer.  Get armed (the Word), be in position (prayer), and fight (continue to speak God’s truth boldly).  We can’t continue looking in fear at wicked law makers, at people who claim to be Christians but defend sin, at mere flesh and blood…we must keep our focus in the midst of the chaos.   That focus, of course, is Jesus Christ. 

The worse things look, the more we pray.   The more we pray, the more God-given authority we have in this fight for America…my beloved America!   Pray, Christian brothers and sisters.   Read. His. Word.  We cannot afford even one day of being lax.  Be strong.  Be courageous.   Help is on the way.

  2. Amen, Sister! In the end times there will be a strong delusion come upon the people. On my FB page is a photo of female clergy…in their priestly garb…joining hands, raised in triumph, smiling–in front of signs that read “Pro-Faith, Pro-Family, Pro-Choice” I looked at that an knew–strong delusion has come. All of the other things you list here–including the fact that people actually VOTED for Alexandria O-C, underscore that fact. I just heard a song this morning that had the lyric, “Jesus made me brave.” Good thing. We need to hold His hand and stand strong, speak fearlessly, and live righteously. No matter what the majority around us say and do. And, we are the minority now, TBR, we are.
