Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV)
This past Friday, one of my church members and I went to Fredericksburg Regional Prayer Furnace, which it is closed to my home. As I worshipped and praised the Lord with song, one of leaders came to me and prayed over me. As she prayed, she said that my worship with song is the weapon to fight against the spiritual darkness.
Currently, our nation is at the battleground. Even though we are facing difficult financial crisis and moral issues, this battle is not “against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Most people may believe that God is judging us, but they don’t know why He punishes us. As the way this nation is going, God is trying to wake us up from our couches and turn this nation upside up for Him. I believe what Peter said in 1 Peter 4:17, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God…” Our national economic system issue is not created by accident, because some of us may have misused our government money over years. We have built our national debts up to trillions of dollars that we cannot pay back to China and other nations we borrowed. It would take us several generations for us to free from the national debts.
We have lost our focused on Jesus Christ and turned into the worldly way of living. We blamed our politicians for our mistakes. Even though our politicians focus on the government system rather than God, we need to step up and take stand to assist them to lead into the right direction. We need to worship God rather than trying to legalizing homosexual marriage, abortion, and the use of weapons. We need to bring God’s name back to schools, so students can worship Him freely and they don’t need to take revenge on other persons for their actions. We need to worship God in home, so we do not need to go separately to live our lives. Today, schoolchildren are venerable and able to reach some kind of weapons to murder other students, because their families are kept arguing each other and not relying on God. It’s sad that many Christian homes are broken as equal to the none-Christians.
I don’t believe that any previous president, including Obama, had no idea when they made the treaty with the other nations, especially UN. They made an oath to God and to this nation as they elected to seat White House. Once the oath ceremony was ended, they started to go their own agendas to lead the nation. We, as the body of Christ, need to raise our voices to show them where we’d need to go from here. We need people like Moses and Joshua to lead the nation to the Promise Land. It’s not just enough for us to vote the person for President to lead the nation. God must be involved with the political process. Without Him, we would be kept digging for the solution to our messes.
Do you want transform your life to spend eternality with Jesus Christ? God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
