Charting a Path of Unity Among Divisions and Hostility (Video)

Can we ever come together again? The divisions are ripping the world, the Nation, and God’s children apart. Of course, what will concern us most in this article is charting a path for God’s children to come together as one people, to overcome their divisions and hostility. If we overcome, it will be our strength in the coming days. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Charting a Path of Unity Among Divisions and Hostility

Can we ever come together again? The divisions are ripping the world, the Nation, and God’s children apart. Of course, what will concern us most in this article is charting a path for God’s children to come together as one people, to overcome their divisions and hostility. If we overcome, it will be our strength in the coming days. So, it’s essential that we overcome these growing divisions escalated by the Social Media echo chambers, taking their lead from the political left or right. It will be helpful to listen again to the Words of Jesus Christ, who said, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22:21). It was the opposing parties of the Pharisees and the Herodians that tried to trip up Christ by denying any responsibility to the government of His day. Jesus Christ never denied responsibility to the government, but only what they are due and nothing more. His primary objective in the lesson, then and now, is to teach all of His followers to render everything to God that is God’s, which is everything. This is such beautiful truth for our day, a day when the world is filled with half-truths designed to lead people astray. Jesus saw the hypocrisy of the two opposing parties then and I am convinced that He also sees it now with the political parties of our day.

My concern in this article is to gather up all of God’s children that are being led astray by both political parties of our day and bring them back to the truth; to bring them back to God’s magnificent way. As already stated, God’s way is to render unto God all the things due to God and only render unto the government the things that are due them. Until we do, we will continue on the path of unprecedented divisions allowing our political party of choice to lead us further and further away from God and His marvelous way. This is the one area that has tripped up most Christians in our day. We will demonstrate that Jesus Christ never directed His followers to utilize the government or their chosen political party to establish His Kingdom here on earth. This will be a hard pill for most Christians to swallow in our day because this “Kingdom now theology” has been so ingrained into the minds of most believers for nearly two thousand years. This dangerous thinking began with the establishment of the Catholic Church and has continued to this day with only a very few bright and glorious exceptions along the way.

So, what does the government expect? Simply put, pay your taxes and obey their laws. The only noticeable exception for the believer is to only obey the laws that are not in direct conflict with God’s higher Law. On the other hand, to render unto God the things due Him puts us on a much higher mountain. It’s time for Christians to come out from the valley of  division with constant bickering and infighting. It’s time to climb the mountain of unity and brotherhood allowing Christ to teach us once again how to bring forth His Kingdom that will reside in the hearts and minds of every believer. As Christ stood before Pilate, the government’s representative of His day, “Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”” (John 18:36, ESV). So, if Christ’s Kingdom is not of this world and only resides in the hearts and minds of transformed believers then how should we confront a world of divisions and hostility?

We confront a world of divisions and hostility by not aligning ourselves with a particular political party. Remember, we only render to the government what’s due them, taxes and obedience to their lesser laws that don’t disagree with God’s Law. As we render to God the things due Him, we will learn together how to gloriously confront the world. Our first lesson is we don’t use the weapons of this world. The world may tell us it’s ok to protest in the streets by carrying signs and yelling our slogans knowing full well that it could easily turn into physical confrontations with counter-protesters. What does God say? The world may tell us it’s perfectly ok to have a peaceful protest in front of the Capital knowing full well that it could easily allow immoral groups to join in going much further than we intended. What does God say? The world may tell us that we have every right to choose other like-minded friends on Social Media knowing full well that it can turn into an echo chamber of aggressive rhetoric against one party or another. What does God say? God’s way is completely different from the ways of the world. Stop following the ways of the world! Listen to hear God’s beautiful truth on how to confront a divided and hostile world.

God’s truth can only be properly understood by His transformed believers in Christ. That must be the starting point. Without transformation in-Christ, then it will be no different than joining any other party in the world. The transformation will open our eyes to a beautiful truth that we can overcome evil with good and not by using the weapons of this world. Attempting to do this without transformation in Christ will end in dismal failure. We can all begin today by putting off the old life through repentance and putting on the new life in Christ by obeying all of His beautiful commandments. This too will be impossible without faith believing that Christ died on the Cross for our sins and rose on the third day to give us a new life in Christ. Furthermore, we must step out in this faith following Christ’s lead through the promptings of the indwelling Spirit allowing Him to bring forth Spiritual growth. The good news is we are not meant to do this alone. We must join with other believers who want the same thing, to see God’s Kingdom manifested in their life and the lives of every believer.

We will soon discover that our rules of engagement are completely different from the world. We overcome evil with good, not through hostile rhetoric. We immediately see the great power of forgiveness, of turning the other cheek and going the extra mile. I am still amazed every time I see this happen. We immediately see the great power in love breaking down barriers and removing the weapons from their hands. We immediately see the great power in the Cross to bring conviction to a dying world leading them to repentance and the brotherhood of love. We immediately see the great power in the transformation that’s completely changing others from the inside out. How amazing it is to see great sinners weep in repentance and witness their lives completely change right in front of our eyes. We immediately see the great power of God’s Kingdom coming and His will being followed on earth as it is in heaven. This power is greater than all the armies that have ever fought, all the navies that ever have sailed, all the books that have ever been written, and all the sermons that have ever been preached. Dear children, let’s stop trusting in our favorite political party to change the world and allow God to do it through us, one person at a time. How glorious are God’s ways. Onward Christian soldiers.

Stand Firm Against the Coming Beast

The beast is coming to destroy the witness of God’s children. In the first great persecution of Christians, they were falsely accused or blamed for burning down a section of Rome. Two thousand years later history is on the brink of repeating itself. We don’t know at this point how much of America will be burnt down if any at all, but we do know that there has been a tremendously large deployment of troops in and around Washington DC along with other strategic areas throughout the country specifically for the inauguration. Fear from the political leadership has driven this deployment along with their aggressive hunt for all those who made it inside the Capital, on January 6th, even if their actions were not nefarious. The connection has already been made. All intruders were followers of Trump, which primarily included Christians who conservatively fought with him against abortion, the increasing scourge of sexual immorality, the invasion of illegals across our Southern border, the unending foreign wars, the ridiculous treaty with Iran, and his opposition to a New World Order. We also supported his Middle East peace deals with Israel and the moving of our embassy to Jerusalem just to name a few. Yes, the connection has been made, so if anything happens, we will be blamed. The beast is coming.

Although I am confident that our people will not cause any damage to life or property, we do know it will not let us off the hook. We will be blamed as followers of Trump and the persecution will begin. So, how do we stand firm against what’s coming? We do so by recovering the forgotten fruit of the Spirit. The Bible says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23). Although we hear a lot about love, joy, peace, and faith, we hear very little about gentleness and goodness. Moreover, we hear almost nothing about longsuffering, meekness, and temperance. Let me suggest that these three, longsuffering, meekness, and temperance are the forgotten fruits of the Spirit, the lack of which, will have the most devastating effect upon God’s children living in the West when persecution comes. Persecution, the shackles of slavery discussed previously, and a lack of faith will cause the great falling away. Most will be unable to stand against the beast or the fires of persecution because they have not cultivated these Spiritual fruits in their life and by not having a correct understanding of their faith. How tragic.

So, let’s begin by learning how to cultivate this missing Spiritual fruit in the believer’s life, then we will correct our understanding of faith so that we can stand firm in the coming days. Although we will only be looking at the three fruits of the Spirit that have been largely ignored in the modern-day, we must cultivate all the fruit. The Bible says, “… against such there is no law” because the fruit of the Spirit is brought forth by cultivation and not through obedience to the law. Simply put, we must walk in all the Spiritual fruit, every moment of every day. In the beginning, it will be most difficult because you are not used to it. It will feel awkward and even a bit strange, but the Spirit will help you to overcome these feelings. The more you walk in the Spiritual fruit the more it’s cultivated, helping you to stand firm as God’s children. So, let’s start with the Spiritual fruit of “temperance” variously translated as self-control. It describes the inner strength by which a man takes hold of himself, refusing to be swept along by errant desires or impulses. He looks at everything critically asking if God approves it.

We have all desired to be free from the downward spiral of our society that’s bringing forth the grossest of immorality and teaching our children that it’s acceptable. We may not have approved of all that Trump did or said, but he did hold up our moral imperatives, so we greatly desired to see him continue to serve another four years. As stated above, we liked many of his policies and have abhorred the thought of having them all changed with the new administration. Many of us have prayed, we have marched, and some have even cried. Yet, nothing has helped to change the reality that a new president is taking office in a couple of days and everything is going to change. Dear friends, we don’t need to look far to see how Satan is using this by sending forth his seducing spirits causing us to chase after different conspiracy theories, promising to give us our heart’s desire. We have lost all control. It’s much easier to accept the conspiracy theory rather than accept the reality that we have lost. It’s much easier to give in to our passions, aroused by the conspiracy theories, to strike back at the other side. However, we must cultivate the Spiritual fruit of temperance (or self-control) for it’s essential to our freedom, from the tyranny of the flesh.

Dear children, even if your conspiracy theories are true, we must still maintain self-control. I am afraid if we don’t cultivate temperance (self-control), then we will be led to strike back causing the political establishment to blame us. If we are blamed, for what is soon to come, then we will be persecuted. If that happens, then let’s hope that you have begun to cultivate the next Spiritual fruits of meekness and longsuffering. For you will need them to stand firm. Meekness is a tremendously beautiful fruit of the Spirit, Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). They inherit the earth because they have kept their great strength under control, which is precisely the meaning, strength under control. They would not do or say anything without first checking with their Father in heaven. Christians would fare a lot better if they cultivated this Spiritual fruit. To check with your Father does not make you weak, to the contrary, you will need your strength to either stop what you are doing (self-control) or to proceed with a very difficult task that He has given you to do. Unfortunately, many have been led astray by the seducing spirits because they did not check with the Father, either prior to listening to them or allowing Him to interpret what it says, before believing it and sharing it on social media.

Now we turn our attention to the Spiritual fruit of “longsuffering” variously translated (forbearance or patience). This is an amazing Spiritual fruit, which is also an attribute of God (See Romans 2:4). When people come against you with false accusations, hurtful language, or even physical blows hoping to rile you, we must choose to suffer rather than retaliate. We remain calm displaying the other Spiritual fruits of love, joy, peace, gentleness, and goodness. Let me be very clear, if you have not been cultivating the fruit of longsuffering in your Christian walk, you will have a most difficult time doing it during the persecution. You can start today in all of your relationships. Don’t let anger overtake you. Cast out those unwanted thoughts of revenge immediately. Stop making excuses for your explosive temper. Demonstrate forbearance toward others even if you completely disagree with them. As they come against you demonstrate patience by turning the other cheek or going the extra mile (See Matthew 5:39-41). Don’t render evil for evil but follow God’s Word that says, “Be not overcome of evil but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21). Keep this also in mind while in the heat of it, the Bible says, “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” (Romans 12:19). Dear children, to follow the seducing spirits believing in their conspiracy theories will only cause you to strike back at the other side, contrary to who we are in Christ. God forbid.

Of course, without faith, it’s impossible to please the Lord and stand firm. The Spiritual fruit of faith defines who we are in Christ. A lot of people say they have faith but don’t understand all that it means. Faith is much more than just believing the facts. Even Satan believes the facts and we know that his destiny is the lake of fire. Faith also means trustworthiness, fidelity, and total dependence upon God. Our first allegiance is always to God trusting Him alone for the care of our whole body and Spirit. We depend upon God for all of life, realizing that we cannot do anything apart from Him. This is the kind of faith we will need when persecution comes against God’s holy children. Persecution will start by silencing our witness. Once our witness has been successfully silenced, then the beast will arise (See Revelation 11:7). I hope that you can see by now, that all of this Spiritual fruit is essential to help you stand firm in the coming days of intense persecution. The beast is coming. The persecution is coming. Only God’s faithful children who are cultivating the fruit of the Spirit will be able to stand firm. All others will fall as they follow the seducing spirits of our age sent by Satan himself. God help us to stand firm. The beast is coming.
