Praise the LORD that HE has raised you up for such a time as this to be a truth teller to our nation. Thank you, Sir!! I do admire you and am so thankful that the LORD is directing you.
Somebody is working on the Veterans telling them things like God hates war, God loves Soldiers – that phrasing sure sounds familiar to me. I had to quote Bible verse after Bible verse regarding Christians and evil and evil governments. This is what I told them: It is an error to say that God never supports a war. Jesus is not a pacifist. In a world filled with evil people, sometimes war is necessary to prevent even greater evil. If Hitler had not been defeated by World War II, how many more millions would have been killed? If the American Civil War had not been fought, how much longer would African-Americans have had to suffer as slaves?
War is a terrible thing. Some wars are more “just” than others, but war is always the result of sin (Romans 3:10-18). At the same time, Ecclesiastes 3:8 declares, “There is…a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” In a world filled with sin, hatred, and evil (Romans 3:10-18), war is inevitable. Christians should not desire war, but neither are Christians to oppose the government God has placed in authority over them (Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:17). The most important thing we can be doing in a time of war is to be praying for godly wisdom for our leaders, praying for the safety of our military, praying for quick resolution to conflicts, and praying for a minimum of casualties among civilians on both sides (Philippians 4:6-7).
I will have to pay some attention to what is happening with them. I wish you well in this endeavor and I think I know why you decided to do it. We all have a job we have to do. We are all going to be busy. Both of us have new projects or changes right now. As I have said before Colonel West – Go With God and may an Angel be near at all times. Be careful.
