Defending The Castle

God is not squeamish.  He is not an effeminate, cowering, begging, pining pacifist who retreats in horror, hand over mouth when His creation supposedly chooses to go against His pleadings to wreak havoc and ruin. . . .

There are not two Gods--one narrow-minded, mean, demanding genocidal dictator (as the atheists and many so-called "Christians" would have you believe) . . . in the Old Testament; while the other is a "peace at all costs" vegan hippie with blow-dried hair in a woman's nightgown knocking on your door, hoping to be "let in". . . in the New Testament. . . .



The God of the Old Testament . . . is the same God as He Who gave the New Testament.  He did not change from one age to the other, growing more sensitive and allowing over time. . . . He does not change, He is one, consistent, perfect, holy and good and all-powerful. . . .

The same God Who said "turn the other cheek" (a highly mis-used and mis-understood text, by the way) is the same God Who told Joshua and His "called . . . chosen people" to destroy utterly the people of Canaan, men, women and children. . . .

It is a lie of the devil and the enemies of God that God's people are to allow themselves to be abused, walked on, and decimated at the hands of the demonically controlled and inspired.  It is a trick of the adversary and the would-be global dictators to convince Believers that they are to succumb to social, political and spiritual evils--to shut up, lie down and hide, while wickedness runs rampant un-opposed. . . .

The Remnant do not fight evil with evil and do not resist unrighteously, but they are expected to stand and proclaim the truth of God, "resist the devil", protect and defend the weak, the poor, the persecuted, practically, temporally . . . within the context of the overall fight  "against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."  --Eph. 6:12

Lord Jesus is a King, a conqueror, the supreme ruler above all.  His people are made strong, conquerors, defenders and protectors, in Him.  Do not let the wiles and deceits of the enemy and his devious minions convince you that you are to surrender to them with a whimper and a groveling.  These are rebels, insurgents, renegades, outlaws, perverts, murderers, liars, rapists, pedophiles, would-be destroyers of all that is good and holy and of God.

There are two types of children in the world, of which we are one or the other.  The children of the devil . . . the children of God.  Who is not for Him is against Him.  There is NOT a murky middle, a compromising space between. . . . Some are of their "father the devil" . . . the rest are of their Father God, King and Creator of the universe, Sovereign over all. . . .

Did God make the world, wishing and hoping it went well?  Then, using a contingency plan, stepped in to TRY to save it?  

Or is He in complete control, from beginning to end, and His purposes are meant for the full demonstration of His will and character, according to HIS own "good pleasure"?

His Word is clear:

"What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory . . ."  --Rom. 9:22-23

The fight begins with not becomming oppressed with fear.Fear is not trust or faith."The world" are working hard at bringing the oppression of fear,chaos,confusion.If one cannot get past this their in ineffective fighter.Or if one is trapped in the lie that one can't fight the lie.

The fight is truth vs the lie!
