Thanks Hans, Welcome To G.U.L.

by Larry Miller

It’s easy to get caught up in the fight to keep our country free and forget our real purpose on earth. It was outlined when Jesus told his disciples, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We see the shenanigans of the Obama administration and the machinations of SEIU, ACORN, NEA and the whole alphabet soup of other leftist groups looking to pick our pockets and run our lives. But we have to keep in mind who the real enemy is while we follow James Madison’s advice that “Resistance to tyranny is service to God.”

We may not have much of a chance of changing the leaders, but the voters that picked these leaders will only change when they have a change of heart. We see tea parties increasing in influence, but how much better would it be if the values of the founders were internalized once again by the American people? And how much better for them as well if many could be shown the error of the “social gospel” or “liberation theology” ways?

As angry as we can get with Barack Hussein Obama, Andy Stern, John Holdren, Rahm Emanuel and the whole gang leading this country astray, we need to remember the words of Ephesians 6:12 that tells us “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (NIV)

Seeing these people as victims themselves is not falling into the same trap that they are setting for the country by declaring everyone to be some sort of victim in need of governmental assistance. It also does not mean that we give them a pass for their nefarious deeds, but it does somehow mellow the personal aspect of our struggle.

Now being viewed this way will send many of the secular statists of both parties bouncing off the wall, causing them to increase their hostility, yet I believe it is the way we must go. That doesn’t mean we roll over when confronted by their plans to deify leaders and the state. Our task is to put everything we have into the fight, but to keep in mind that the real enemy is spiritual and that is how we need to fight the fight.

We need to fight this battle on our knees, in the state houses, in Washington and anywhere else we have to smack down these intrusions on the liberty of the American people. If we recognize this, we can count on the promise that the battle is not ours, but the Lords. Not only the battle, but the ultimate victory.
