Perpetual Conflict: The Issue is Never the Issue

We are at war. But in a traditional or typical war, enemies are easily identified, battle lines drawn, demands are made known, and opposing armies are purposely and clearly distinguishable. Modern warfare however, offers no such clarity.

America has been under attack from within. I also believe the underlying conflict is spiritual and demonic forces are driving the rebellion against God and the revolution to take down the Christian worldview and our constitutional republic.

C.S. Lewis once stated, "There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan." Remember: the issue is never the issue. Enemies of God are using every possible crisis to gain power, and what we are seeing is a state of perpetual conflict.

In case you haven't noticed, the left has made constant efforts to extend or manufacture crises and wear down people’s resistance. Until more believers in Christ and His true church recognize and respond to the cultural battles and increasing spiritual warfare, the decline of morality and society will continue at warp speed.

One of the marching orders of the left is to never let a crisis – real or manufactured - go to waste; use it to achieve your goals. Many "issues" reached a boiling point last year led by an anti-American Left and Deep State as well as the anti-Trump Globalist Big Tech Democrat Media Conglomerate.

The division of country and churches worsened, we saw unprecedented hatred of a U.S. president and media fear-mongering of Covid, political upheaval, Black Lives Mater Global Network Foundation propaganda, riots and anarchy, a stolen election, an economy on life support, and a church deemed "non-essential.

Many people seem confused about the Biden Harris administration policies that are hurting the nation including 'Biden-flation,' southern border chaos, the growing influence of Marxism and Critical Race Theory, vaccine mandates, military wokeness, Afghanistan, mask mandates for children, and public schools turning against parents to name a few.

Think about this. The Biden Harris campaign and The World Economic Forum share the exact same slogan: “Build Back Better.” Some say it’s a dog whistle for the Green New Deal while others warn it comes from Communist ideas.

Senior Editor for The New American, Alex Newman says The World Economic Forum used “Build Back Better” to push the Great Reset and “reinvent capitalism” and push to end private property ownership, among other concerns. Newman writes:

“Over the last century, well over 100 million people were slaughtered by their own communist and socialist overlords as those regimes fiendishly sought to centralize control over all property and resources in the hands of the elites. In the Western world, some of the most powerful individuals of the last century have been working toward that goal on a global scale, too.”

This, of course, would be a declaration of war on America and our constitutional republic. We are in the midst of a worldview war and it’s time to pledge allegiance.
Jesus said whoever is not with Him is against Him (Matthew 12:30).

You either support and defend the biblical Christian worldview or you do not. This will affect your morality and politics. There is no grey area or middle ground. Either confess Jesus as Lord and believe God’s Word or deny His truth and live in rebellion to the Lord.

There are two kinds of people in the world – forgiven and unforgiven; saved or condemned; for Christ or against Christ. Whose side are you on? This is not about Democrat or Republican so we better wake up.

If the billionaires and power elites driving our government and the United Nations get their way, what some people call a conspiracy theory will be our new way of life. No more free or fair elections. We will have record government spending and “green energy” but higher taxes and more regulation.

Energy will be rationed, expensive, and travel will be restricted. Surveillance by the State will be the norm and our privacy will be virtually nonexistent. This is all part of the New World Order that has not only been in the works for decades, but is also prophetic.

How should Christians respond to all that’s happening – from medical tyranny and threats to religious freedom to the deconstruction of truth and history to accusations of nationalism and racism?

First, there is freedom and deliverance and hope in Jesus Christ; but there is no reconciliation, redemption or salvation with globalism, Critical Race Theory and Marxism. Beware of worldly ideologies.

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. Colossians 2:8

The Bible has clear answers for every need or problem in life. Marxism and political correctness has no answers. It's all about the "oppressed" and those who are oppressors, and everything is a struggle for power - to be resolved either by income redistribution or the sword (violent revolution).

One example is the godless Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, a far-reaching anti-Christian agenda going beyond black equality to their main goal: revolution - political power. The issue is never the issue.

Marxism and true, biblical Christianity cannot coexist; Ever.

Six Quick Points:
  1. Marxist-driven revenge and collective guilt are not biblical 
  2. Christianity rejects coveting and materialism
  3. Marxism fuels envy, covetousness, and resentment
  4. Christianity teaches love, contentment, and forgiveness
  5. Marxism breeds bitterness, hatred, and violence
  6. Christianity seeks to unify; Marxism seeks to destroy and divide

As believers in Jesus Christ, we identify with Him and are all equal at the foot of the cross because we have all sinned.

In today's society however, the left wants your identity to be based on your group or affiliation. There are now identifying factors in our culture such as sexual orientation (gay or lesbian), female, gender identity, income, religion, immigration status, nationality, and race. You likely see where this is going.

The more groups or "oppressed" categories you can identify with, the higher your status and demand for special (not equal!) rights. There's a new word we need to understand: “intersectionality.” This measures a person's level of oppression.

We know the Bible teaches God created every human being in His image, each of us having equal value. True believers in Jesus are children of God.

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus… There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26-28
 
This is the unity of Christianity.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”  Revelation 7:9-10

All nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues will stand before the throne of the Lamb of God one day (Revelation 7:9-10). The heart of the matter is a matter of the heart, the inner man, not skin color or the outer man. This is the true gospel and our hope.

The agenda to promote perpetual conflict and the destabilization of society will eventually fail. It profits nothing to gain everything but lose your soul (Mark 8:36) in the process. Though threats against Christians and religious freedom will increase, remember this is temporary and the issue is never the issue. The issue is the revolution.

Truth wins in the end, the wicked will be judged, and evil will be vanquished. Let’s redeem the time because every day, we are closer to the return of Christ. Make sure you are with Him and not against Him.
