The world has never really experienced peace at all and one might argue that since WWI, global tensions have increased. There has always been some conflict, some chaos in various parts of the world. These things exist because of the fact that powerful, egotistical, self-righteous, deviant, thoroughly evil men serve themselves. They have plenty of yes-men and sycophants that are all too ready to do their bidding in exchange for a small piece of the pie and a place in their coming kingdom. They don’t consider eternity though and that is their biggest downfall.
When dealing with the subject of global or world wars, it’s good and reasonable to ask why they occur at all? Who is behind them in the spiritual realm and here in the physical dimension in which we live? Maybe a better question to ask is why they happen? If we understand why these wars occur, we are probably that much closer to understanding who is behind them.
A society like the one in Man in the High Castle does not normally happen overnight, though that one was largely created by the wrong sides winning the war. That society is dark, foreboding, something to be disdained and hated. But most of the time, societies change over time and with the incremental removal of rights and privileges. This has been happening in earnest for the past four to six decades and has picked up the pace to an alarming degree within the last few. We seem to have reached the point of no return, where movement in society has created change under its own power and continues to do so.
Whether God fixes things now or in the future makes no difference to God, but only to us. The reality is that He will right all wrongs, but most of them will not be righted until after He returns to this earth, not before. Realizing this, trying to fully understand it, will relieve us of a great deal of frustration. It will also help us reject any acrimonious assault on our character by those who would make us think we haven’t done enough.
We trust God? We work to fulfill the Great Commission? We preach the truth in life and deed? That, my friends, is enough because it is all God asked of us.
The highest court in the land has passed its judgment. The headlines proclaim that a slim majority of Supreme Court justices considers freedom of sexual orientation a right for all Americans. This exchange of one set of values in favor of another does not come as a surprise to us who already know that the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe (2 Cor. 4:4). June 26th, 2015 stands as a significant milestone in the American demonstration of this ancient reality. This is a critical hour for believers across our nation.
It is interesting to consider the fact that in a country like China where atheism is rampant and encouraged, even there, people cannot be stopped from looking to Christ for salvation. Persecution can certainly take its physical toll, but history has proven time and time again, that Christianity cannot be stomped out.
