The Bible makes it plain that when Our Lord Jesus Christ comes again, it won’t be for another crucifixion. The sacrifice was made once, and only once: it will not be repeated. When He comes again, it will be to judge the quick and the dead, and to establish His Kingdom on the earth. He will straighten out this mess.
But I need the Lord’s guidance on another point that’s not so clear.
I’m hearing talk, these days, of great persecutions coming, persecutions of the Church, and how we’d better be ready, we’re going to have to pay with our lives for our devotion to Christ–or at least go into slavery or second-class citizenship. And so on.
So we’re supposed to stand down, do nothing, while the ungodly, who hate the Lord, devour our civilization? Just let them do it? Anything they want?
There was such a chapter in Christian history, and a long and bloody one at that. Are we expected to repeat it? Allow ourselves to be trodden down by transgenders, atheists, “gay” activists, black racists, the crime syndicate of Washington D.C.?
The Bible tells us to overcome evil with good. How do we do that?
Do we wait for Christ’s return, for Him to sort it out, knowing it might be yet another two thousand years? Or do we say, “Enough, we’ve had it, we’re taking back our country”? Is it God’s will for those who hate Him and hate His people to rule over His world?
I really can’t think so. We have done a lot of things wrong in history, calling ourselves God’s people but acting more like Satan’s. But I think it would be doing wrong to fail to oppose the aggressors. Too Pharisaical by half. Like walking past a couple of goons beating an innocent person to death, and making like you never saw it. That’s not Christianity. That’s just cowardice.
What do we do, Lord? What do we do?
