Mark Rushdoony: ‘The Winning Side’

Mark Rushdoony: 'The Divided States of America' – Lee Duigon

Sometimes covering the nooze is like struggling through dense jungle where the only path available is the one you hack out with your machete.

But we have to keep our eyes on the prize, Mark Rushdoony reminds us.

The message of all of Scripture, Mark writes is “Jesus Christ victorious with all sin and evil put down.”

And who, in 70 A.D., would have given two cents for the new Christian Church’s chances of survival? Who would have bet against the might and power of Rome?

It’s not easy to do, since today in many ways we are like those early Christians trying to live out their faith surrounded by the Roman Empire; nevertheless, that’s God’s word to us and we have a duty to believe Him. Death and evil loses, Christ wins. That’s where the story’s going, no matter how many twists and turns it takes to get there.

  1. Amen. This is exactly the message I have been getting from the Lord. We are more than conqueror’s through Him Who loves us.

  2. A big hardy Amen to your post and Mark Rushdoony’s post “The Winning Side.” Chapter 5 of my new book “Israel, Rapture, Tribulation,” starts out this way:

    “Down through the ages, the Church knew she would be victorious in changing the world with the help of the Holy Spirit. Believers knew there would be trouble, persecution, and death for many of them; but they also knew they would overcome in the end! Not just victory in eternity (Psalms 78:69, 93:1, 96:10, 104:5, 119:90; Eccl. 1:4; Eph. 3:21) but victory on earth, taking the Gospel worldwide to fashion the kingdom of our Lord.”

    This is the underlying theme of my treatise, victory for God’s Church. However, just as the yeast, the negative influence of the Pharisees and Sadducees doctrine, there has been a huge negative influence in the culture due to the teaching of the “last days,” “end time,” and Jesus is coming soon” dispensational teaching during the last 100 years. During that time, the Churches influence on the culture has been largely withdrawn, due to the fact, most believe we are out of time, the Church cannot change the world, for Jesus is coming back any second, and any moment he will split the sky and take His Church home. Thus, there is no time, all we can do is just save a few souls, pull a few out of the fire, before the antichrist takes over when Jesus raptures His few saints.

    You will find an easy-to-understand discussion of Christ’s Olivet Discourse, Daniel’s Seventy Weeks, and a few other pertinent issues dealing with the “end times” doctrine. A must-read for those interested in helping to build a future for God’s people down here on earth.
