Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.Ephesians 6:11-13
One of the greatest testaments to the authenticity of the Bible to me is spiritual battles. The Bible proves itself over and over again with fulfilled prophecies, wisdom and knowledge that could not have come from humankind, unexplained miracles that could not have occurred without divine intervention, and the explanation of why there is good and evil in the world. As a matter of fact, these evidences are so overwhelming that it is sometimes a mystery to me that billions upon billions of people throughout history fail to recognize it as the Word of God.
And we all do not have to become Biblical scholars and historians that study and interpret ancient texts in order to see and understand the truth and reality of the Bible in the world around us today.
And within America, we need look no further than our own political arena. Yesterday was an historic moment in American history with the arrest and arraignment of a former US President: USA Today. And one must ask themselves why? Why was it necessary to bring charges against a former US President when this has never before been done in US History?
And New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg (who brought the charges against former President Donald Trump) tells us it is because no one is above the law. In his statement on the arrest, he told us that the charges were serious and that the State of New York takes them very seriously: Yahoo News. All while pundits, scholars, attorneys, and political figures from both sides of the aisle are scratching their heads and publicly stating that the charges do not make sense and that they are rife with errors and that they could not, and should not, hold up in a court of law.
So why would DA Bragg risk his reputation and his future with such a reckless and foolish action? What is it that drives him to believe that a case that so many believe has no merit is the case he should risk his entire career on?
Others will tell us that the charges are absolutely necessary in order to keep President Donald Trump out of office for a second term. But one must then ask themselves why is it necessary to ensure the voters of the American populace cannot vote for themselves?
And the answer here is that President Trump is evil and he stole the election in the first place. Which is absolutely amazing to me because the Democrat Party (for the most part) demonizes “MAGA Republicans” for the claim that the election was stolen from Donald Trump. And by doing this the Democrat Party has made itself out to be the Party that more closely aligns with its party emblem:
I’m not sure the Democrat Pary realizes (or recognizes) just how stupid, idiotic, and moronic an argument this is. So, they are telling us that the Party that knows all previous elections were not stolen (and belittles anyone who even remotely suggests that they were) is now persecuting a former President because he stole an election (originally) and then tried to steal an election (this is what the charges are about) and they must prevent this from happening again? And all while doing this they are themselves manipulating and attempting to thwart the next US Presidential election by removing the leading candidate from the field. In other words, they are currently trying to steal a future election.
And these battles take place with hate, and malice, and anger. You can see the seething hate in Nancy Pelosi’s eyes when she talks about President Donald Trump. There are no other rational explanations other than hate to understand DA Bragg’s actions in charging President Donald Trump at this moment in time.
And where does all of this hate and malice and anger come from? I thought the Democrat Party was supposed to be the Party of love, compassion, mercy, and forgiveness. Can we not find it in our hearts to just forgive and forget? Can we not just spread a little (just a little) love today?
And the answer to these questions is “apparently not”. But why not? And one may very well ask whether or not I am angry over what is happening in America today. And the answer is: “Of course I am”. I understand that I cannot love abortion, and perversion, and evil at the same time I love God. For I will either hate one and serve the other or serve one and hate God.
Where does all of this hatred and division come from? The answer is staring us right in the face: It is a Spiritual warfare. And how do I know this is a Spiritual warfare? Well look at what we are fighting over. Abortion. LBGTQIA+ rights. Wokeness. Who can teach and influence our children. Christian values. Diversity, Equality, Inclusion (DEI). Reparations. Black Lives Matter. Make America Great Again (MAGA). Just look at all of things that litter the battleground, they all come down to Biblical values. These are absolutely Spiritual battles and they are determining the outcomes of lives for all of eternity.
And the only question that remains is what side will you end up on? And to answer this question in my own life I often look at what side aligns with the Holy Word of God. Because if the Bible is accurate enough to actually predict the spiritual warfare that we witness around us every day, then is it absolutely accurate enough to guide me to the side that God stands on. Which side will you choose?
