For war!

“—-we must fight!—I repeat it, Sirs, we must fight!!”…They tell us, sirs, that we are weak–unable to cope with so fomidable an adversary…Sire we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which God of nature hath placed in our power… Besides, Sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, and brave.
“…Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so dear or peace so sweet to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!–I know not what course others may take; but as for me,…give me liberty, or give me death!”          –Patrick Henry…Leader of the American Revolution

We are in a battle, maybe not a physical one (even though I feel it a lot of times) but one of the spiritual nature.  And we do not fight it along, becuase the Powerful and Almight God is on our side and has already won the War, but he gives us help through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to fight the battles that still rage until these days come to a close and Jesus returns in blinding Glory!  There is a battle going on wether we like it or not and we have to be ready at all time, “Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8  I want to fight so that everyone on earth will be able to hear the name of Jesus and repent of their ways and follow him.  I want to be like Patrick Henry, asking for myself and every around me “…give me liberty, or give me death!”
