The time has come when men will have to decide how to fight, either with a sword from the earth or with The Sword, that which is the Word of God. Do we as followers in Christ have the authority to defend ourselves against violence by force of violence? Do we “turn the other cheek” in the face of destruction, allowing our families to be submitted into bondage, or stand behind a Constitutional Right as free people? Could the bondage of the Saints be absolutely necessary to save the torturer and tortured alike– for instance, an uberElite who might never have a safe encounter with a True Believer in Christ, unable to experience by proximity one who has Divine Understanding given only by The One True God; while also those who are in spiritual and physical bondage, ready to experience the Spirit of Love and its divine ability to work in the heart’s of men.
Jesus said, 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. – Matthew 10:18
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. – Matthew 5:38-42
17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. – Matthew 10:17-20
66 At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. 67 “If you are the Messiah,” they said, “tell us.” Jesus answered, “If I tell you, you will not believe me, 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer. 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.” – Luke 22:66-69
Editor’s Note: For clarification this is in the context of The Beast System, an overwhelming Governmental force of numbers and might against a mainly docile population. We believe this is inevitably coming to Amerika, thus if governmental squadrons are rounding up individuals by the power vested in them, by the power we as spiritually dead citizens have granted them, do we reside in our right to freedom and fight, or are we really free to begin with? Is this simply part of the consequence in asking God for a earthly King, the consequence which God Himself professed would be inevitable for such a request? There are certainly Biblical arguments for peace and for fighting back, but we simply ask in what Spirit are you residing in during that moment of inevitable circumstance, the Spirit of Fear or Peace? Now, if a radical or insane individual(s) are rampaging throughout society, hurting and killing innocent people, then any God-fearing or mentally stable individual SHOULD step in at the sake of their own safety and stop this mad-person. We certainly believe this is the Christian thing to do. This is obviously a tough subject to discern for many people, however we firmly believe it’s our duty as Christians to protect the innocent against all forms of terrorism, even at the risk of our own lives.
If the Spirit of God rises and protects us against governmental round-ups, for His purpose and His glory, then all praise be to the God of Abraham, but if the Spirit of Fear is directing our actions and we fail to rest in His Peace, recognizing that nothing is ours, not our property, our money, our life, our very breath, nothing is ours as we might perceive; all has been given by The Father of Heavenly Lights, all things are governed by His will and for His glorified fulfillment.
It’s prophesied the Saints will be brought before powerful leaders to speak through the Spirit on behalf of our Father, but if we resist, fight and die, as opposed to residing in Peace; will we miss the opportunity given to see God’s majesty at work? We in this moment are in subjection to Him, meant solely to be humble and serve, no-matter the cost.
12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear. – Philippians 1:12-14
Our destiny has been sealed from the foundations of the earth, if we are strengthened by God and made ready to fight for His purpose then we will fight. If we are meant to be plundered during the round-up and Persecution of the Saints for His glory, then we will be plundered. If we are to lose all earthly possession and be taken into captivity, it matters not, as everything has been given for His purpose and glory.
Some will remain free from The Beast System and persevere for Christ on the outside, some will fight and hold on from within; we must prepare to give everything, for all things have been given for this moment. If a slave were to give birth would the child not also belong to the Master?
10 Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life. – Revelation 2:10
