Troop Build Up

Jim Lane at LZ Stud

Someone sent me an email about the military cuts that are being proposed and I responded.

As one who served in Vietnam believing that we were going to end Communism on the other side of the planet before it spread to our side I am against this. As a believer in the word of God I realize that this is inevitable. That does not mean I think we ought to just let it happen.

We should pray against this. We should pray for our leaders. We should not get sidetracked from our commission of winning the lost and equipping them to go and do likewise. We win daily by focusing on the priorities designed by God. We are already victors by receiving Christ; I John 5:4-5. We are more than conquerors Romans 8:31-39 which means that if one or all of the enemies of America nukes us into oblivion before God comes to snatch out of the world system then we will be absent from the body and present with the Lord; II Corinthians 5:8.

II Thessalonians was written to that church because they thought they were going through the Great Tribulation. I believe we will go through a lot of tribulation. I believe the Laodicean church will go through the Great Tribulation. God promised the Philippians that they would not go through the Great Tribulation. So what is the difference?

  • Laodicean church kept Jesus outside
  • Philippians were heavily involved in missions

Remember that Jesus came into the Garden of Eden and declared war on Satan. We need a troop buildup in The Battle of the Ages. Real leaders get focused on the real war.
