Lord, We need you…

…now, more than ever.

This is not only a political war, it’s a spiritual war and Jesus Christ is the only answer to what ails our country.

    1. Well, these are Jesus’ words, not mine: The seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you.” (Luke 10:17-19)

        1. Martin Luther King was right on when it comes to human civil disobedience and the protesters, looters and Antifa could learn much from him. However, when it comes to the spiritual war, I’ll take Jesus’ words as authority. There is a spiritual enemy who is opposed to everything Reverend King espoused and will do all he can to destroy all the things Reverend King believed in.

          1. And then there is this….
            “A war initiated by human hands is not holy, so we shouldn’t presume to fight in the many unholy wars of our world.”

  1. I have no idea who this is, but if you read the Old Testament, God ordained Israel to fight several holy wars. But that wasn’t my point in the post. My point, once again, is not human violence such as being perpetrated by the looters and Antifa, but the spiritual war behind it all. Do I believe they are being influenced by the spiritual influence Jesus called the enemy? Yes, I do. I believe World War II was started by humans such as Hitler influenced by this same enemy Jesus referred to. Was World War II a holy war? Not for me to say, but I believe such evil has to be stopped. I wish non-violence would stop evil, but It didn’t stop Hitler. Neville Chamberlain declared “Peace in our time” after trying to appease Hitler by giving him Czechoslovakia on September 38, 1938 which caused unspeakable misery and suffering for that country, especially the Jews. Almost a year later, Hitler invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. Even Jesus who said we are to love our enemies fashioned a whip and used it to chase the money changers out of the temple. I’m called by Jesus to love people, but I’m also called by his word to stand against evil. I’m not trying to convince you as you’re entitled to your viewpoint and, if I read your comments correctly, you’ve made them very well.

  2. An ethic of non-violence is actually explicit in the teachings of Jesus and is affirmed in the rest of the New Testament. It is a distinctive mark the of the New Covenant; God’s people are to be known as peacemakers. Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God, and his is a kingdom of peace.

    Psalm 33:16-17 ~~
    “The king is not saved by a mighty army;
    A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
    A horse is a false hope for victory;
    Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.”

    Matthew 5:38-42 ~~~
    “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you
