Looking back at the 2008 Elections, I really did not think the Lord would have us Christians fighting a two-front war.
Now, by using the phrase two-front war, I’m not referring to its normal usage: warfare taking place simultaneously at two geographical positions. This strategic maneuver forces a combatant to split its armies, and thus reduces its odds of success.
But instead, I was referring to a two-front spiritual war. On the one front fighting us Christians are Satan and his forces.
Who do you think is backing the Islamic jihadists? Whose backing the homosexual agenda? Or abortion? Or national debt? Or illegal aliens? Or the dumbing-down of our children by school systems?
Hello! Is anyone home? Satan is behind these attacks.
Okay, so why do you think Satan has boldly gone on the offense against America? Maybe, he has inside info, right? What is it?
Satan knows that God is opposing America on a second front. That’s right! We Christians are caught in a cross-fire between Satan who hates us and God who loves us.
And guess what?
Though it looks like we believers should mount all-out efforts against Islamic terrorism, homosexuality, abortion, illegal aliens, national debt and the dumbing-down of our children by school systems, we better drop everything and seek God.
We need to know why God is opposing us. Is it our national sins? Or corporate church sins? Or personal sins?
If we Christians don’t find out the answers to why God is opposing America, our nation is doomed. Period.
Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
