“And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’
Ask not what your country can do for you…….
At this time in our history we have a “real life” example of spiritual warfare taking place right in front of our very eyes. But as the Bible teaches again and again, ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive.’ I sit and wonder why the nation that I love cannot come together and help one another without all of the bickering, fighting and backbiting. I wonder why millions upon millions of dollars are being spent on airtime for campaigns when ‘we the people’ are starving on the streets of America.
My Spirit gets worked up listening to all of the back and forth slandering, wondering why the newspapers don’t just post in black and white the voting history and changes made by two people, one of whom who will be chosen to lead this country. Let the FACTS determine the outcome of the upcoming election and not just rhetoric.
If ever there was an instance to describe “Spiritual Warfare” to ‘ sheep without a Shepard’, it is now. We, on the whole, are being misled as a nation and a people….a nation supposedly under God. We are being destroyed for lack of knowledge….about our Father in Heaven and what He offers us as a child of God.
The battle we are in between light and dark is right in front of our faces and we can’t even see it. If ever we need to learn about God and His ways it is now. This is not a popular stance on God but it is nevertheless one of the facets that we have to face and we have to deal with in order to obtain the victory as long as we are alive. We have been desensitized and lulled to sleep as children of God and it is time to wake up.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty for the pulling down of strongholds (2 Corn 10:4). We need to understand that prayer coupled with fasting and offerings, if necessary, can turn the tide in what is taking place in this nation….the nation we say we love…the “one nation under God” I might add.
As I have been sitting watching the country in great distress, I knew that instead of “talking to death about it,” we should rise up and “do” something about this. We talk and talk and sit and listen to others talk and talk (paying millions of dollars to do it), while only a few are actually putting the “ pedal to the metal” so to speak.
One of the greatest obstacles we need to overcome is ourselves and the lack of doing anything. We feel that “the beast” of the Capitol is too big to do anything about. We hardly know all the issues and vote based upon feeling instead of fact and God’s will. We don’t really believe that God possesses the answers for our country. We have to grow up now into the things of God if we expect to win.
John Kennedy said it years ago, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.” You would be amazed at what learning how to fast and pray would do, not only for you, but for your country. I have seen amazing results and it is time for us to ban together and fight the enemy of our souls and take back what we have let, through our own ignorance, the devil have. We don’t even realize that this is coming from the enemy.
The spiritual walls around this nation have been broken for too long…that is why we are in the mess we are in. Walking with Christ through this earth is a lot more than sitting in a church pew on a Sunday. Jesuswithoutthejunk is here to help build back the spiritual walls that are destroyed…in a simple and clear way so we can gain the victory in every area.
If you really are sick and tired of what is going on and are scared that you will be affected by the decline in our economy, then it is time for you to learn about spiritual warfare. It is time for you to learn how to walk with Christ on an everyday level so you will be protected in the days in which we live.
The job that faces us is a big one and it is going to require the help of everyone to get it done. People do nothing, either because they think the job is too big for them to do anything about or because they don’t know what to do. I am telling you that prayer changes things. It is not just something that is done at the beginning of a meal or you do on your knees before you close your eyes. Prayer can make the difference in the battle between good and evil. We are in a battle for this country and it is time to pick up our weapons and fight.
Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, in a Memorial Day address in 1884 stated: “It is now the moment when by common consent we pause to become conscious of our national life and to rejoice in it, to recall what our country has done for each of us, and to ask ourselves what we can do for our country in return.”
We are on the brink of a disaster “of Biblical proportions” (quotation “Ghostbusters” couldn’t resist!) whether we want to face it or not. God would not and did not leave us without the weapons to fight this but most of us have no idea they exist. I am telling you that they are real. It is time to pick up your weapons and fight for your country, your children and yourself.
When God’s children do nothing, evil wins.
Are you with me?
