A General and His Soldiers

I have asked the Lord numerous times:  "should I vote?"  For me, the answer is "no."  The question is, should you vote?  What's the answer to that?  Another question:  what does the Spirit of the Lord say?  If the Spirit inside you tells you to vote, go vote.  As with everything the Spirit leads,we follow.

Romans 8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

Whats going on in the world is the end game playing itself out according to the Lord's (and nobody else's timeline).  We understand this is the end game because every single thing the Lord told us would happen is happening.  The Lord is lifting the veil so we can clearly see what was hidden before.  The absolute depravity that is being displayed prominently by the political left and in a more veiled way by the globalists on the right is there for all of us to see.  The demonic hatred, calling good evil and evil good, the violence, the vulgarity, the intolerance of anything and anyone who stands for what is right (as defined by the Lord God, not man) is an indicator of where we are on the timeline.

The Lord is coming back on an unexpected day and hour and we must be ready for Him, but until He arrives we are to participate in our role as restrainers.

2 Thess 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.

One could argue that the restrainer is the Church or the Holy Spirit but this nobody would argue that the two are indistinguishable as one of the primary avenues the Lord works through on this earth is His Body which is us, the Church.  He is in us, we are in Him.  He works in us and through us to accomplish His will on this earth.

As we see the veil lifted and the demonic hatred the enemy has for us as he works through his children we must do what we were told to do.  We must pray continually about all things at all times.  We must fast and pray.  We must bind and loose.  We must exercise the heavenly gifts that have given to each one of us according to our Lord's divine wisdom to work out His will on this earth just as it is written:

Matt 6:9
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.a

10Your kingdom come,
your will be done,b
on earth as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread,c
12and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.d

Coming face to face with pure evil can be unnerving at times, and more each day we are seeing that evil unveiled.  We should however be encouraged that our Lord is not unnerved, nor is He unsure of what needs to be done or how to do it.  He is the General and we are His soldiers.  All that needs to happen to accomplish His will is for us to take care of our individual assignments.  I have one assignment, you have another.  I am fighting on one front and you are on another but we all have the same Commander in Chief and He has everything planned out to the minute detail to ensure His victory in the end.

Be encouraged, our Lord has the whole world in His magnificent hands.  There is no plan or plot or secret society or spell or hex or conspiracy that He is unaware of and has not taken into consideration in the master battle plan.  We win this fight, do your part.

2 Cor 10:4 The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
