We Are in a War

Throughout this pandemic I have sensed and suspected we are dealing with something much larger than a health issue. I have spent a good deal of time watching and reading reams of material from health experts during the last few months.  I am a pastor and one of my responsibilities is to protect the flock and provide the direction to people to find salvation and help.  I try to tie the issues of Biblical truth that offers us answers to everything we face in life.  The Bible has principles to follow in areas of morality, marriage, parenting, family, and even being an employer and employee. I call the Bible Gods manual for life and living.  We are in a crisis today I believe mostly because we have divorced ourselves from our Christian roots which is our strong Judeo Christian heritage.  What is going on today is a massive assault on the free world and the pandemic is the excuse for doing so.   The world is quickly being brought under total control of government with mandates and punishment if you do not.  A young man I know who is 18 years old just was informed that he will not be able to take his driver license test unless he is vaccinated. Unbelievable insanity when science proves that an 18 year old is at zero risk of mortality and if he gets Covid he would have a 20 times  greater natural immunity if he actually got Covid  to any future variant.  I think we will someday realize the vaccine program was a hasty mistake and offered short term gain for long term pain. 

We are in a war for truth and freedom and we are loosing a little more of both every month.  I cannot believe how our leaders are betraying us without really looking at science and facts or simply ignoring them.  There are reams of evidence now by qualified scientists and doctors that seem like the politicians and leaders are afraid to admit.  They are all operating in fear and trying to keep in the popular side or keeping silent and hoping the whole thing will go away.   I am still of the firm conviction we should be following the model of Uttar Pradesh in India and stop the vaccine mandates but it probably will not happen because our countries are so divided already and confused they are just blindly following mandate after mandate trusting the government to get us out of this.  I am convinced it will not and the only way we ever will is with a grass roots movement of people who say enough is enough. There are a few leaders now who are standing up against this government mandates and paying a big price for doing so.  I heard a medical doctor in California last week on a news clip say that his stand is going to cost him his career and probably his home and probably if there is not a turn around could cost him his life if he continues to speak out but he said I am willing to loose it all for the cause.    When I heard the doctor say that I realized we are in a war.  This is a real war and only time will tell what the future holds.    It is difficult fighting a war when you cannot see the enemy but it is designed that way.  When he reveals who it is it will be too late to do anything except hide but there will no place to run.   The Covid bug is invisible and the ones who are pushing this agenda are invisible.  Our governments are puppets to something much bigger than them.  We are being led down the road of destruction and huge regret if we do not stand now.  Note in Ephesians 6:11 below we are instructed to stand.  A principle that will take us to victory is when enough people take a stand on the right side of this issue. 

To date several million have died from Covid I think unnecessarily and worse that millions are starving around the world and our seniors in many homes across our country are being locked up like inmates in prisons.  I am not accusing the health workers who are doing their best to care for people often working long hours but it is the mandates and policies that are being pushed from above without the priority of care for people and patients.  Our health workers are doing their best in the circumstances but let’s offer people an end to this nonsense. We can do it and there is lots of evidence out there now to show we can.  If they can rush an emergency vaccine that has not even gone through proper vaccine trials then they can emergency rush an  Ivermectin that does not have any side affects and has saved thousands of lives in countries much more crowded and worse off than ours. In my opinion the trials are done and the compelling evidence is there let’s make some decisions use it and move forward.  We need government leaders with courage to go against the grain.  However, that would take faith and most leaders today do not have any faith.  They are operating strictly on the principle of serving political self but I want to warn the leaders doing so it will be a fatal mistake.      

The New Testament was born in a time when there was war against truth and good.  The first 300 years of church history was bathed in blood of martyrs who stood for truth and paid the ultimate price with their lives against the dictates of a pagan Roman Empire.  Every one of the apostles died as martyrs except for John.   During that time there were evil leaders in the Roman Empire and the entire world was ruled by Roman governments. The church was growing and spreading through the Roman empire during this time of persecution and tyrannical rule but the church was at war and we are at war today and Christians better understand the seriousness of it and more importantly how to fight this battle.  It will not be a battle of bullets but of truth at least in the early stages.  I would not be surprised that bullets enter into this yet before it is over.    

Sir Winston Churchill who led Britain as Prime Minister through WW2 said the first victim of war is truth.  In war you do not know if you can believe the reports on the news because there is a war and only what is allowed goes to the media outlets.  The mainstream news are all bantering a common narrative of fake news. During war the emergency act is activated which gives government authority to enter any home, seize any property, livestock or bank accounts they deem necessary during the emergency.  In Canada the emergency act has been enacted in most provinces including Saskatchewan.  They have not used it yet much but it has been enacted and can be enforced whenever they will to do so which means they can take anything you own search your home or property if they want to without a search warrant. 

The apostle Paul wrote a letter from prison cell back to a large church in a large city and instructed them to be strong and fight valiantly in the war of their day.    

Eph 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 

Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.   

Eph 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We are in a battle with an invisible enemy.  He is powerful and has devices called wiles that cause death and destruction to multitudes. He never gives up.  He is like a Talban fighter who never quits.  He operates with lies and deception.   He uses mobs, lies and fear to carry out his agendas.  He causes chaos and confusion wherever he can in order to gain his agenda purposes which is always to keep truth from the people.  We must learn how to fight this battle and win.  The apostle Paul told a young man Timothy to be a good soldier.  We need to learn what it is to be a good soldier.  First you must be on the right side.  Second you must be committed.  Third you must fight this battle with principles of faith and spiritual power.  Fourth, you cannot be lazy but you must dig for truth and then decide accordingly.  This battle is not against a particular person but against something bigger than any person.  It is the power of the devil himself.  If we do not get on the right side and fight this battle Gods way we will loose.  These principles were addressed in the New Testament:

2Co_10:4  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 

1Ti_1:18  This charge I commit unto you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them might  war a good warfare;

2Ti_2:3  You therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 

2Ti_2:4  No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier. 

This battle of the ages for truth and right principles has been opposed by the evil one in one form or another.  Until now in Canada and the USA there have always been enough good people in right places to ward off attacks and keep our countries more or less on the path of freedom.  However, it seems like we don’t have the right people in the right places to ward it off any longer.  That right person could be you if you will sign up?  If you will get in the battle?  If you will put your life on the line like my grandfather did when he engaged in WW1 and like my father in law did when he signed up and engaged in WW2?  I heard a physician on a news report this weekend who said he will probably loose everything if he stands and so will you but we must stand.   The attitude of that doctor is the attitude of a soldier.  It is that attitude that has gained and preserved our freedom on this side of the globe and to keep it we must follow the same principle to preserve it now.  Jesus gave everything for us the least we can do is give everything for Him and this cause. 

1Co_15:34  Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

2Ti_1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Quote: “Don’t fear Covid but fear God, then you will hear the still small voice that says, Fear not.”
