Is all of this conflict purposeful? Or is what we are experience merely the outcome of a primordial accident? Is all this well-ordered chaos so brilliantly orchestrated by the Wicked One to turn humankind against each other random or designed? Is there an Enemy who moves in and through the midst of us that conceals himself in the midst of us for the express purpose of destroying us and life as we know it?
The answer is yes! How else can we explain the madness of the murder and destruction we see ramping up all around us? Satan has temporary jurisdiction of this earth, but we are here appointed by God and authorized by him to act through the Holy Spirit to declare His Kingdom come! Jesus tells us that we shall know “them” whoever “they” are by their fruits. (Mt. 7:20) We must begin to discern the truth from the appearance of truth set up in the midst of us to deceive, if possible, even the very elect.
Jesus said, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand. The time is urgent and your decision to follow Jesus Christ matters for all eternity!
"Because there's are war for your soul."
