Waking up the True Church to Spiritual Warfare
Many Christians are very concerned about fighting the evils of homosexual “marriage”, abortion and euthanasia, and rightly so. However, many fail to see the real evil behind all these evils although it should be obvious. Very obvious. The evil behind all evils is the spirit of mammon. Many Christians, who should understand what mammon is, fail to understand what mammon is. Mammon is the spirit behind money. The love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10).
Instead of examining to see if one in under the spirit of mammon, many Christians are too caught up with earthly causes and fall victim to the spirit of mammon. As a result, they fail to understand the underlying evil of everything, and attempt to understand social evils using human-made sociological, psychological and political theories. Such is an insult to God. Instead of seeking the Word of God, many Christians use perverse, evil, wicked doctrines to understand such evils. As such, they have become blinded.
The theories of sociology, psychology and politics are secular, that is, evil, God-hating carnal doctrines. What one is fed in the mind will determine what one thinks. What one thinks will determines how one acts. These perverse doctrines arose to oppose the Church during the Enlightenment Era. They gained more gravity in society not because of support by secularists for the doctrines, but because of a failure of the Christians to stand up against it. Although it may seem that the secularist pagans are to be blamed, this is not the case because such people are spiritually blind. They are like a blind man who is in a dark room, searching for his walking stick. They cannot see evil in its true light. Only the true Church has all the answers because it knows God who is wise above all things. The fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom (Proverbs 9:10).
First, the Church compromised with the humanists regarding human nature, the origin of evil and the concept of rights. The humanists vehemently sought to separate the concept of rights from the Bible. Instead, these unsaved humanists had the audacity and arrogance to say that the Bible is immoral and yet take credit for conceiving the doctrine of rights when cherry-picking their favourite parts from it, such as the concepts of equality and justice which these humanists then twist for their own agenda. When the church compromised with the evolutionists who deny the existence of God, they effectively helped the evolutionists. Compromising with evil is to cooperate with evil. However, God’s Word is not that which can be compromised in any way. Compromising God’s Word with humans’ words is to make oneself a fool. Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord (Jeremiah 17:5).
The unsaved know that compromising with evil is to cooperate with evil. The hypocrisy within the Church is very clear to the unsaved who often only too happy to attack the Church justify its rebellion against God. They seek to look for sin in Christians to justify their own ways of unrighteousness and perversity. This is not to say that the Church is justified in hating the people in the world, but it should hate its ways with disgust. It should abhor all of its ways and not want to be associated with it in even the slightest way. The Church must unite together and get rid of all unbiblical doctrines from creeping into the Church. It must be cleansed of all false doctrines and stop the in-fighting within the Church.
The modern Church is like a day care. What do kids do at day care? They fight and form cliques. A kingdom that is not united cannot fight is enemies. Likewise, a Church that is not united cannot be protected from evils and heresies that creep into it, let alone fight evils. Such a Church is one that is easily attacked and destroyed by demons.
Many Christians claim to be very concerned about fighting evils are blinded by these actions themselves. As such, their actions have become a mere earthly cause despite their intention to fight evil. Instead of reaching the heart of the matter, which is a matter of the heart, one that is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things, they focus on the earthly aspects of the evil. For example, many Christians focus on the breakdown of the family that would follow if homosexual “marriage” is legalised, rather than grieve over the lost Hell-bound souls of those homosexuals. This is because they fall into serving their flesh, which leads them to see only the earthly but not the spiritual. The spirit behind this is mammon which tempts people to serve their flesh.
Many Christians are under the spirit of mammon. One need not be serving mammon to be under the spirit. To be under the spirit of mammon is to yield to its temptation. Mammon is a spirit of earthliness, materialism and greed. It tempts people to look at the earthly things, including the justice system, and even the causes against abortion and homosexual “marriage”.
For the West to experience a Revival, Christians in the West must stop praying for prosperity and focus on God. Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33). What Jesus meant by ‘these things’ was physical needs which are earthly things.
All Christians must unite, realise we wrestle against spirits, not fellows humans, and proclaim the Gospel to the unsaved.
