People Calling for God's Army to Rise Up, Show the Way, and Stand in the Gap on Their Behalf
Never in my life have I ever seen non-Christians, and I mean those of influence too, call out for the followers of Jesus Christ to rise and lead them against the onslaught of the culture that has arisen from the ashes of hell to challenge the people of God, and to destroy those who love freedom.
They see that only the those who profess faith in Jesus Christ and walk in obedience to Him can bring deliverance. Not only do I see that as an extraordinary opportunity, but a solemn responsibility. These non-believers who are trying to fight back against this evil, understand they lack the weapons to do so and win.
Amazingly but not surprisingly, they're starting to see Christianity as their only hope. I've seen nothing like this in my lifetime, or in recent history - at least in the West.
Over and over again across the Internet and social networking platforms, I see non-Christians calling for Christians to rise up and oppose the evil spreading through the land and attempting to smother us with the fruits of it.
When the Soviet Union fell, they cried out for Christians to come over and give them Biblical answers to their challenges and problems. The silence from Western Christianity was deafening. We can't afford to sit on the sidelines anymore as Western civilization collapses under the weight of hopelessness and outrageously evil men and women who hate everything about Jesus Christ and Christianity, and not only oppose us, but oppose those who won't fall in line with their wicked narrative and group think.
We are not those that are called to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. The end of that, as revealed in Romans 12:2, is "that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Those in the world that have good will are diligently looking to see what that is, and only those walking in obedience to Jesus Christ can show them.
This is the time we have to go past words only, and show them by the lives we live and the actions and deeds we're willing to take.
The ball is in our court. The demand for Christians to rise up in authority has risen in the U.S. and other parts of the western world. Are we going to respond to that openness?
It's incredible to me to see many in the world seeing what many Christians refuse to ... that we are the people to rise up in authority and provide the foundation and parameters for people to live, work and love in. Some may not even respond to the gospel message in the future, but they know their only hope in this life is for true Christians to stand in the gap against the evil they are unable to cope with. They're right.
On the other hand, when they see the visible and powerful response that could cost us everything, I believe we could see the great response to Jesus Christ and the gospel so many have been praying for. It's time to go to war in the name of Jesus and tear down the strongholds that threaten to destroy the world as we know it.
