Warriors with No Kingdom


Spineless hoard!

So terrified of loss.

Vainly, they stand

For the opinions of another man’s religion.

Religion, a man’s way of pleasing his version of God.

In that respect

There are as many religions as people who have lived.

The spineless want peace.

Quite willingly,

They toss away the peace of God in Christ,

That they may be left alone

To pursue their religion of Man.

_____________

See how their religion

Requires hatred through defining:

“You spoke a bad word.”

“You thought a bad thought“.

“You did something vile”.

“You have transgressed our pact with one another“.

“For this, and many more, we condemn you”.

So says they who love their worthless peace.

Those who despise their brother; reveling in the demise of their neighbor.

So bright they think themselves to be.

Performing mental gymnastics;

Wielding the piercing sharpness of their wicked forked tongue.

All the while glowing with darkness in a land filled with nothing.

Indeed, go then!

Be righteous among your righteousness.

Disavow the glory of God in Christ;

You spineless worthless hoard!

Make me


No one can make me hate.

No one can fill my mouth with hateful words.

No one can cause me to incite another to violence.

All of that is in my own heart.

Control of that lives in my own heart.

Even if my mind tells me to agree with all those evil things, my mind also reminds me not to do them.

No one can make you mad. it’s a choice you willingly make to vent your own frustrations.

All these things are true. When will we start to do them?

The Great Apathy


Reflecting on the Great Flood, Charles Spurgeon says this:

“How marvellous the general apathy! They were all eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, till the awful morning dawned.”

Of any moment, place or identity of Man is just this way. What meager number of this day will refuse to be one of the apathetic? God will know who they are. We all either know or can guess the rest of the story.

Give?


Is it possible that the best thing we can do for the children of the world is to give them what they want? They want freedom to be godless. They want freedom for the pursuit of pleasure. They want a certain legality for all their miss guided desires. They want to imagine there is no heaven or hell. They desire that there is no consequence to a godless people‘s existence. They want to be their own gods.

God tells us the world will certainly gain all it has desired and fought against him to keep. The deep-seated hatred for all that is true and good will eventually consume the people.

It will happen. It will come to pass that the world will be immersed in the worship of demons. Here is the question: does the beginning of that immersion begin today?

Personally, I think the beginning of that immersion is when Christ’s people are taken from this world. See how the stage is being built.

For now we stand against them by doing and saying the things of our God, Christ Jesus. See how vigorously they fight against righteousness, self discipline, purity and godly justice.

They will eventually get what they want. They will be ecstatic when they win full release. Though we can say with confidence they will rue the day of their “success”.
