Lately I feel stirred up. Like a hornet’s nest of low rumbling anger has been riled within my heart. It’s a passion I’m not real accustomed to feeling. As a southern lady I was raised to withhold a lot of temper, but right now I feel like a lioness stalking in the secret place and fiercely watching over my lion cubs. I am madder than Hell.
No, I’m not cussing. What I’m saying is…I see the anger of Hell manifesting itself on our streets in the form of all sorts of godlessness…I see what the enemy is attempting to do to our families, children, and country and every bit of it is connected to the anti-Christ spirit and it stirs up a fire in me. A righteous anger. A feeling that it’s time to fight. Time to stand. War time.
A time when we lay aside false pretention and fight for what we love harder than Hell is fighting to destroy it…
Is this making sense?
For far too long, being a “good” Christian was conveyed as being quiet and just going along with things so as not to disturb anyone…because “God is love”.
It’s true that God is love…but it’s not true that love allows all things. Love is truth. Love is having boundaries. Love is wise. Love carries the fruit of the Spirit…one of which is self-control.
Loving all, doesn’t mean we have to go along with their sin…even condoning it as normal. No, love sets a standard. All this “going along” with sin is just manipulation and laziness. When did people stop having enough conviction to offer those lost in sin, a way out? That’s what love is.
The lost are so miserable. They are so desperately looking for a way out but are completely unaware of it…so they flail and throw tantrums and act like we have the problem. They are like overgrown toddlers. And for some reason, the church has largely responded to them with kid gloves, instead of our call to respond with truth.
It’s time to stand for truth out of the love in our hearts. An unrelenting commitment to the Truth. Honestly, it’s the most merciful thing we can do.
Village life in Israel ceased, ceased until I, Deborah, arose, arose a mother in Israel. When they chose new gods, war came to the city gates, and not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel. My heart is with Israel’s princes, with the willing volunteers among the people. Praise the Lord! Judges 5:7-9
There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory rests with the Lord. Proverbs 21:30-31
