I seriously want to know how to turn the world's terroristic tide. I believe we can....really.  Threat is occurring to be more than conversational concern over a coffee or during a round of golf.  Escalation of human abuse, rapes and deaths, is strong, it is clear, it is aggressive, and it is surely spreading.

As stern threats arise this is precisely the time to take action; not shrink in fear.  Our God has done battles for and beside His people in the past.  Moses was one.  Oh, there was that time Kid David faced down the imposing was that giant's name?

Finally be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might.  Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:10-12).

I believe the day is coming when every believer is going to be thrust into the biggest battle ever. Whether we will publicly hold that we stubbornly believe God in the view of overwhelming threat will be the inner war.  News will spread.  Terror will advance. So we must practice responding as Joshua once did, As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

The days of religious talk are numbered.  Churches' petty ways of dividing over traditions will flush like a toilet in the face of true and imposing forces of destruction. Faith will arise; a genuine certainty that we can't and yet God can.  This will be the new order of the Christian message; one that has boundless energy for the glory of God in all situations.

Through the darkest of intimidation and the ugliest of deeds, keep this one in your hip pocket; Father has been through this before.  His only Son yielded to a pulp beating....and cleared the grave.  The enemy?  The enemy has no cure for God's smooth warfare.

Love God.  Love others....which certainly includes our enemies.  Never quit believing!
