For two thousand years Christians have faced that agonizing question that has divided brothers, Christians Orders, and whole denominations. We are faced with that question today in America. With the recent jailing of Kim Davis, a County Clerk and fellow sister, in the State of Kentucky for her refusal to issue a marriage license to homosexual couples, it has become a burning question. Should Christians fight back? With the coming New World Order, the revealing of the False Prophet, the Antichrist, and the real possibility of martial law, it has become a burning question. Should Christians fight back? With the real possibility of our government confiscating all guns from its citizens, it has become a burning question. Should Christians fight back? The simple and most direct answer to this question is yes, we should fight back, but how is the larger question; “Is there ever a time that we could be justified to use the weapons of this world?”
Before we answer that question let me stress that Christians should realize that the weapons of this world are not effective in defeating Satan and his host of wickedness which I have covered in detail in my second book: “Stand Firm.” On the other hand, I do believe there are scriptural grounds for using the weapons of this world. Jesus had said to His disciples when He knew that His departure from this world was at hand and that they would no longer rest under His divine protection that they should actually sell their garment and purchase a sword, which in our day would be equal to owning a gun. Now why would he tell his disciples such a thing? In those days, very much like the days in which we live, there were thieves, killers, and deranged people who could do them harm along with wild and veracious animals. At this point Christ was only concerned about their defense of evil doers as we learn from the full context of the passage of Scripture. For in the very next verse his disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.” “That is enough, he replied.” Keep in mind our Lord had many disciples following Him yet two swords (or earthly weapons) were enough. Two was enough because they were not planning on going to war or starting a rebellion against the established order which we will discuss later. So our God given rights is to bear arms against those who would do us or our family harm. This should speak loudly to the liberals and possibly our government who would love to disarm all American citizens and leave them totally defenseless in a world that is getting more evil every day. Just look at the number of cold blood killings from deranged and perverted individuals, many of them on psychotropic drugs who have become the children of Satan. You might get the argument that the local police department is tasked with that job of protecting you from the evil doer, but I would say if someone is attacking you or your family you may not have the five minutes or more needed for the police to arrive at your location. In times like this we must be allowed to protect our self and our family with whatever means are necessary.
Let me be clear this is not your only option to fight back! If you ever find yourself with no weapon of any kind and are faced with an evil doer bent on doing you harm. You still can demonstrate God’s love and pray asking for His Words to flow through you. I had such a case while attending Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. I was working a graveyard shift as a shuttle driver for a small motel in the area. A man suddenly appeared out of nowhere forcing a high caliber gun into my face and demanding that we give him all the money. At that very point I felt the power of God come wonderfully over me as I spoke directly to the intruder speaking with such force that he nearly gave up his ambition to rob us. As I spoke the gospel to him I witnessed how it penetrated deep into his heart as a double edged sword. During the whole ordeal I felt tremendous confidence in God’s protection. The other individual working that night (an unbeliever) was sore afraid that he left as soon as the police showed up to never return to work again. There have been many other occasions over the years where I have personally witnessed the power of God’s Word as if fire was coming forth from my mouth; standing against the demon possessed and witnessing great miracles of deliverance.
Indeed the Bible says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). This brings me to Kim Davis and her boldness to stand against the establishment. Let me very clear that this law that allows Homosexual couples to marry in every state was not enacted until after she had been duly elected by her constituents. Therefore, she is being forced to obey a law that’s not only against our beliefs but one that was changed after her election. The Christians have in some small measure stood up with her proclaiming the truth from God’s Word, seeking to align others of similar persuasion. But my real concern is that a large part of this conversation is only staying within the confines of the Christian community and is not touching those who are in power to do something about it. We as a Christian community must take to the streets proclaiming with a loud voice that this country is going in the wrong direction and will experience the full wrath of God if she does not repent. We must be like the two witnesses at the Wailing Wall in the last days. We need to take that same powerful Word of God to our representatives and political appointees. Just bantering our discontent within the confines of the Christian community even on the social networks will not change anything. I believe the homosexual community has proved this point by getting people into the political arena, big business, the school administration and marching in the streets to get this country to accept their gross immorality and to change the nation’s laws to embrace their abomination, while the church witness was non-existent. What a tragedy! We must fight back!
Is rebellion ever and option for the Christian? Yes it is if certain criteria is met. First, there must be a political entity establishing a new form of government with ideals and structures so different from the first that people would not need to be conscripted but would volunteer in the majority to organize and fight for its cause. Small groups of isolated individuals with no established government would not be considered a rebellion, but terrorists to be hunted down and killed by the established order. On the other hand, if the numbers are sufficient and a new government is formed then rebellion is always an option if the old government is unwilling to reign in its immorality and pass laws that would satisfy the majority. Secondly, Christians must realize the time in which we live before attempting to mount a rebellion against the established government. When the New World Order is established, the False Prophet and the Antichrist is revealed for most Christians to recognize then a totally different direction must prevail. With the institution of martial law, an attempt to disarm the public then Christians will be faced with some very difficult decisions. Some will simply choose not to flee or wage war against the established government and will be taken into captivity, thus fulfilling the prophecy from God’s Holy Word that says, “He who has and ear, let him hear. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go” (Revelation 13:9-10b).
On the other hand some will choose to fight back with the weapons of this world perhaps forming small cells of resistance. Being greatly outnumbered with far superior weaponry many will be killed to fulfill the words of prophecy that says, “If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed” (Revelation 13:10b). But then there is another option which many God fearing Christians will choose. Unwilling to fight back in total engagement with the established order they will choose to take God’s Words literally in the prophecy that says, “Then I heard another voice from heaven say, Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). This later group will choose to flee to the mountains with their family and whatever possessions that they can carry. Many in these groups will fight back if attacked or found by the establishment in its relentless search to put everyone under control of the Beast. I envision many such groups hunkered down together worshipping God Almighty and rejoicing that they for a time have not been found or taken into captivity.
But what happens if Christians are caught and taken into captivity? I will not cover this is detail today, because I will cover it later in a new article. For as I have already said many will give up without a fight and will be carried off into captivity immediately, while others (like myself) may be tracked down while hiding out in an undisclosed location with a group of Christians as previously stated. For over two thousand years Christians have been captured, brought into captivity and have had to endure horrific suffering and even death because they refused to deny their Lord Jesus Christ. It is essential that we learn how to suffer for Christ and not deny the faith. For now, dear children difficult times lie ahead and for the time being we must continue to preach the gospel as if we were the Two Witnesses of the end times proclaiming God’s truth at the Walling Wall. We must take our witness into the school house or remove our children, we must take our witness into the work place or find different work, and we must take our witness into the government buildings even if we are arrested for doing so. The time is short and we must fight back while we still have the breath to do so.
