The “Supreme” Court doesn’t appear so supreme today. The Governor of Oregon has ordered tampon machines to be placed in all school bathrooms including…and especially… in the Boys room. Her mandate includes materials to stress the whole gender fluidity affirmation. We are in for more riots and more destruction… all the while at the mercy of A ‘Ministry of Truth’ ready to eliminate any dissent.
What is a Christian to do in times like these? I would suggest a few things. First, we need to revisit the whole notion of the delegated authority Jesus gave to His disciples. Your bible clearly states that those who come into relationship with God based on the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross were predestined to be adopted as sons. And as such…heirs to His resources and His authority.
Our enemy is not human. He not a politician. He is not a Justice, nor human Tyrant. He is the Devil Himself. Spiritual warfare is just that… It is spiritual. We wrestle not against flesh and blood. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal (that is…fleshly or human…) but they are divinely powerful to the pulling down of strongholds.
May I offer two practical things you can do today?
1. Please consider purchasing a book titled, Victorious Spiritual Warfare So Simple a Grandma Can Do It. It is by Maureen Broderson, a trusted friend and colleague and is available on Amazon and Kindle.
2. Listen to this sermon I preached in 2009. I titled it,
Spiritual Authority in an Age of Lawlessness
I remember a quote by Edmund Burke “The only thing necessary for tyranny to succeed is for good men to do nothing.” I would paraphrase and say “The only thing necessary for Satan and his minions to prevail is for the Church to channel surf and toggle back and forth between the Johnny Depp Trial and the latest propaganda from the Ministry of Truth.”
