I found this video by two Christian women, Leah and Michelle of Isaiah 58 Ministries, that pretty much sums up what really occurred in Charlottesville leaving one person dead and dozens injured. More importantly they outline what is going on in our society on a broader scale. It’s a long video, but well worth the time spent watching.
I think it’s important to understand, what we experienced in Charlottesville is not really new. It’s part of the Cultural Marxism that has been spreading throughout our culture for years. It’s being funded in part by the Nazi collaborator, George Soros, and other marxist organizations determined to destroy America, it’s Constitution, and freedom as we know it. Throughout the movement and at its root is the father of lies…
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. – John 8:44
These same Antifa thugs armed with sticks, guns, bleach bottles, balloons filled with feces and urine and improvised flamethrowers have been disrupting otherwise peaceful protests since at least 1999 in what has been referred to as the Battle of Seattle. We saw them in the 2017 Berkeley protests and at many 2016 Trump rallies and inauguration.
I personally witnessed the demeanor of these anti-Christian people during my “red pill” wake-up event, the Summer of Mercy protests held in Wichita, KS in 1991. While those protests did not turn violent like we’re seeing these days, you could see the anger and hatred in the faces of the pro-abortion clinic escorts which have now metastasized into the depravity we see today. It was a hair-raising, chilling experience for me to witness the forces of evil standing against the people of God.
Folks, I do believe we must stand united against the evil in our society and do what we can to overcome evil with good as we remove ourselves from their corrupt system. However, I don’t think it’s a smart strategy to confront these wicked people with our own brand of hatred and violence. That is precisely their Communist agitprop agenda of inciting hate and violence that plays right into their hand and will only accelerate the New World Order goal of control and domination.
While these hate filled crazies might seem like our enemy, they are not. They are mostly puppets who have been lied to and manipulated into carrying out the footwork of Satan. They are victims lost in a life without Christ.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. – Ephesians 6:12-18
