War (Part Two)
Another point to ponder concerning who is and who isn’t in the army of God. How do you feel about Israel? Are you for them, or are you against them? Geographically, Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersy, and is a representative picture of God’s true church. We are both small compared to the whole world. We both belong to God, and both of us are involved in a life and death struggle for survial. The battle for Israel is a physical fight, but the battle for the spiritual life of America and every other country on earth is raging within the walls of government buildings, and church houses all around the world making plans about how to best restrict the freedoms and the liberties of the true church. However these people who wage war against tiny little Israel and God’s true church do not understand; the actions of man cannot restrict the Spirit of God whose job it is to protect and comfort the property of God. He does what He wants, to whom He wants, when He wants, and there is nothing man can do to stop Him, because He reigns supreme over all of creation. People foolishly say and do all kinds of things not understanding we are but men who are destined to die and a new generation will take our place. God describes mankind as being the clay, and Himself as the potter, who has the power to squash us and our puny defense systems into smitherenes anytime He chooses. If you don’t understand what I am saying, watch a potter work the clay. A piece of clay that is flawed is flattened and put back on the potters wheel and reworked. Once it has been decided by the potter that the clay is good for nothing, that piece of clay is tossed into the trash pile and gotten rid of. That will be the end result of all those who resist God’s plan for this earth, and for His true church, which is the bride of His Son.
God has placed Israel and His true church into precarious places for a reason. We are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. The mission of Israel and the true church is to keep the light burning for as long as we are in this world, but Satan wants the light put out. Therefore, we are both surrounded on all sides by enemies whose only desire is to destroy us and remove us from the face of the earth, but that won’t ever happen. I know some of you won’t believe that last statement, so you won’t believe this next statement either, but if you are against Israel, or against God’s true church; you are supporting a lost cause. Neither the enemies of Israel or the enemies of God’s true church can win. Anything God is for; Satan is against. But Satan is a defeated foe and knows he can never win. It’s too bad that man won’t listen to the truth. When Satan attempted to overthrow heaven and failed, he was judged on that day and his punishment was set. Later, he thought if he couldn’t defeat God and rule from God’s throne in heaven, he would take man captive on earth and rule from God’s footstool – and when God’s sentence would be carried out, he would take all of mankind to hell with him. That’s how much he hates God, and His highest creation; man. But, that plan didn’t work out either. He was defeated by Jesus, the Son of God, and the Son of Man; and since that day 2000 years ago; man has been given the choice of serving whomever they please. But let it be known that Satan was created a servant angel, and he remains a servant angel. (Hebrews 1:13-14) And like all angels, he can only do what God allows him to do, (Job 1:6) and that within the confines of the limitations God has placed upon him (The Book of Job) for the purification of His church. If Satan wasn’t free for that reason, God would have cast him into hell the moment his judgment was handed down. DThrash
