Again! ‘King Alfred’s War Song’

I thought we could use another belt of this today.

Around the year 800, Christian England was overrun by pagans, most of them from Denmark. It was the Viking Age. They came for loot and plunder, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.

By the providence of God, Alfred, King of Wessex, overcame many defeats–one of which left him a hunted fugitive in his own land–and finally won the war. The Christians won not only peace and security: the invaders converted, settled down, and became part of the population.

We seem to be entering such a time of trial in our own day. The difference is that our heathen are home-grown, turned against us by our schools and colleges. They hate their own country and want to subject it to a “fundamental transformation”–into what, God only knows.

Defeat them and convert them. Trust in the Lord and hang tough. And, like Alfred, never give up.
