In Enemy Territory

Friday, November 6, 2020

Like all nations, America has done wickedly, leaving a trail of death and destruction in her wake. Even with all her great knowledge and scientific prowess America’s law-givers have legitimized not only wars in foreign lands, but approved the murder of about 70 million infant babies safely maturing in their mother’s womb, while criminalizing the destruction of Bald Eagle’s eggs! But there’s a harsh price to pay for such premeditated wickedness. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal. 6:7).

Never in my life, (and I vividly remember JFK’s assassination), have I seen a presidential victor not being declared on election night, or at the latest into the early morning hours. But not so with this election. It’s being rigged by Democrats who are doing their best to steal this election in any way possible. The nonsense of claiming to not know the “early” vote tally is just that, nonsense! But we can expect nothing less from the Democrats who incited hatred and violence very early on. Vicious lawsuits will likely rule the days to come until one or the other candidate concedes.

WARNING! A Biden-Harris victory will be the end of God’s reprieve to the church, which by God’s grace came through President Donald Trump who turned back many godless policies that came through President Barack Obama. God gave the church time to repent of its wickedness in embracing such evils as the LGBTQ+, ANTIFA and BLM agendas, but she refused to repent and will now reap what she has sown – a house divided and estranged from the safety and provisions of God which is history repeating itself: “How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!” (Matt. 23:37).

From coast to coast in America we’ve seen political and racial strife fester, then explode into violence and anarchy as lawless rioters carried along and incited by demonic forces, set ablaze businesses, torched cars, threatened and beat down police forces, burned, thieved and destroyed indiscriminately. That’s become the new normal for the radical Democrat leftists driving many people out of the cities in which they lived for years. This is the radical Democrat Party today. And what’s worse, law enforcement has often been ordered to stand down to allow anarchy.

However, those people made in the image of God are not our enemy. It’s the evil spirits within them! We know that such people have not come to know the Lord Jesus Christ, or they wouldn’t bear fruit to such hatred and horror. Christians must remember that just as Jesus Christ and His followers were ridiculed, mocked and beaten as outcasts in His earthly ministry, so too are we Christians today surrounded by powerful enemy forces of darkness, violence and destruction. But “He [God in Christ] who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

In this world true Christians are in enemy territory because this world is not our home, “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Phil. 3:20). Dear believers, we must pray for people who do not know the Lord Jesus, for God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4). Further, we must carry our own cross, and endure the chaos, violence and tribulations of the end-times so we may be counted worthy to escape all these things that are coming upon the world, Luke 21:36. If we have spiritually discerning eyes to see and ears to hear, we know that “the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers” (1 Peter 4:7). That’s not optional.

We live in enemy territory, in the realm of “the god of this age” (2 Cor. 4:4), who desires to destroy not only believers, but every man, woman and child made in God’s image. The god of this age is being unfettered to fulfill his desire of destroying humanity! Therefore we must “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:11–12). But beware, alone, you are no match for the god of this age, called Satan.

Satan is also called “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience” (Eph. 2:2). We receive much information that comes through the air via radio, television, internet, social media, etc. And much of that information amounts to deception and wickedness…because he, “the prince of the power of the air”, the devil, “the god of this age”, that ancient Serpent, incites and entices by every form of wickedness, unbelief and deception.

Satan is the force behind the many end-time entities that are bringing into reality the New World Order and its globalist agenda. Satan has created the International Monetary Fund that, under the Great Reset of 2021, will offer to forgive all your debt, but in exchange for your allegiance to its demands. Satan has inspired the U.N. and its 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development, and its monetary equalization, and 90% depopulation of humanity so the remaining 10% can live in bliss. Globalists, like the Democrat Party, Bill Gates, George Soros, and many others like them, openly and unashamedly promote a massive depopulation agenda, served by infanticide called “health care”, together with emerging COVID vaccines, among other agendas.

Dear Christian, as we live our life in the midst of enemy territory “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). And “Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light…[and] it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works” (2 Cor. 11:14–15). This is why much deception and error comes from pulpits all across Western Christianity. Many have perverted and twisted the gospel to say what man wants it so say and not what God actually said. Many ministers love the traditions of men more than God’s Word, and thus deceive multitudes, just as it was in the days of ancient Israel.

Back to this election: President Donald Trump may not be politically articulate, but he is very smart, and he knows that Democrats are trying to steal the election. He warned Americans many months ago that Democrats would try to fraudulently steal the election by using tens of millions of mail-in ballots. We shouldn’t think that Trump didn’t secretly develop his own plan to catch the Democrats at their own game of fraud. I believe President Trump may have an even greater November surprise – one that totally exposes the Democrats’ attempt at stealing this election.

Regardless of who wins this election, God’s choice will prevail, because “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” (Dan. 2:21). In the midst of all this chaos, let us, dear saints, be about our heavenly Father’s business of being His ambassadors as we live in enemy territory.
