“I founded the civil rights fighting organization the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) to do one thing: fight those monsters who would tear down the Constitutionally-mandated wall separating church and state in the technologically most lethal entity ever created by humankind, the U.S. military.
Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation's armed forces.” - Mikey Weinstein Founder & President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation writing in the Huffington Post April 16, 2013
“Christianity, and nothing else, is the ultimate foundation of liberty, conscience, human rights, and democracy, the benchmarks of Western civilization. To this we have no other options. We continue to nourish ourselves from this source. Everything else is postmodern chatter.” - Jürgen Habermas, atheist
America, the last bastion of freedom and personal liberty in the world, is slowly dying while our leadership stands by holding the life support system plug. And if the likes of Mickey Weinstein Founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation have their way the plug will soon be pulled before the rest of us can pay our last respects to Lady Liberty.
To the natural eye, hope is escaping as Mikey and his ilk act as willing minions for the specter of fascism that looms on our horizon. God however, has a different way than we mortals understand and I believe, our faith in Christ will dominate the harsh landscape before us. When one considers the stories of the Jews in exile Daniel, Joseph, Ruth, Ezra, and Nehemiah, it is apparent that God operates through an unseen spirit realm which fills believers with a sense of nervous anticipation for the miracles we (His Church) will experience in the dark days ahead.
Since the American Revolution, the western world has been led by the hand of God through the faith and courage of American Christians. The power of the Holy Spirit operating through a faithful flock has manifested many great events in the brief history of our country. Through the power of Almighty God, people have been set free from the bondage of Communism, Nazi Fascism, and religious persecution by the physical actions of Americans who knew the power they had in Christ and understood the meaning of true freedom available through their Savior. Noted atheist, Jürgen Habermas, acknowledging God’s power by what he saw manifest through the inspired spirits of Christian Americans living their lives for One bigger than themselves commented, “Christianity, and nothing else, is the ultimate foundation of liberty, conscience, human rights, and democracy, the benchmarks of Western civilization. To this we have no other options. We continue to nourish ourselves from this source. Everything else is postmodern chatter.”
Many of the “enlightened” class fail to recognize, despite all human efforts to put a lid on the Holy Spirit, that God is bigger that their efforts. No human intervention, government aid program or New Age self-help guru can liberate the human spirit like the blood of Jesus Christ. Perhaps our modern Ivy League masterminds have not read how Daniel, an adolescent Jew, could rise to the second highest seat of power in a hostile pagan culture and watch his God convert his captor (King Nebuchadnezzar) into a believer. Clearly those who would say that Christianity is powerless in our deteriorating pagan culture, underestimate the courage of an Ezra or a Nehemiah, who would stand with trowel in hand and sword at the ready to build their destroyed temple and city walls despite ridicule and violence from a corrupted culture. Perhaps our Progressive elite have never read of a truly liberated woman (Ruth) who risked certain death to protect her Jewish people from persecution.
God has and will use his people, willing or not, to do great things according to his purpose. He is calling us now to join him in bringing His Kingdom down to earth despite all appearances that the Adversary has the upper hand. Empowered Christians will lead the charge for God in the face of certain humiliation, ridicule and physical suffering. A worldwide revival of God is about to be released on this planet and we followers of Christ are to be the instruments of God’s glory. The lines are drawn and we are the soldiers in the greatest war ever to be fought in world history.
Saints, it’s time we get off the sidelines and put on the full armor of God and get onto the battlefield. We must repent and daily pick up our crosses and prepare to follow the Holy Spirit into battle. We must worship and daily read the word of God. We must pray without ceasing and lend a helping hand to our fellow sisters and brothers in the Lord. We must learn to tell others about the gospel because it may be their last chance to hear it before our Lord returns. Learn enough about what you believe to tell others, because you may be the only person between a lost soul and his pathway to hell. The time for playing is over, it’s time to fight for what you believe!
My prayer. Father, the battle is here and we stand before you are willing soldiers in the struggle for lost souls. Prepare our hearts and minds to be fishers of men and Kings and Priests in your Kingdom. Bring heaven down to earth Father and use us for your purposes that you will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Amen.
