I heard the rumors of war but tried to turn away
It was someone elseís problems
I could not make a difference
After all I was only one, what difference could I make?
I am no David, able to slay giants.
I believed Satan lies, that this was not my fight.
I tried to ignore the call to fight
Because I was not willing to pay the cost.
War is messy and does not fit my orderly day.
War is costly the price is high and sometime deadly.
War is time consuming, rarely over in a day.
War is hard work, tiring, and painful.
However, the war came to me anyway
Costing more than I dreamed possible.
Only now am I realizing it cost of doing nothing.
War came without regards for my desires
Trying to steal and destroy our freedom and our life
By tricks, lies, and deceptions.
War came anyway, and we let it in:
When the courts allowed the sacrifice innocent life
Believing that they had the right to decided
If Godís creation was worthy of life.
When prayer was outlawed from public places
And we were told our right to believe and worship
Was not as important as someone else right to believe in nothing.
When family values where replaced
We allowed others to raise our children and influence their minds.
What they learned came from government politicians and not the Bible.
When we listen to Satan lies alterative life style hurt no one.
This released ramped divorce and fatherless children.
It released plagues of diseases that claimed many precious lives.
When we open our ears and airwaves to profanities and vulgarities
And the internet opened up eyes to secret perversions of every kind.
What was once shunned, was now embraced and our children suffer.
When we turn our backs to Godís place in our life
And allowed jobs, houses, sex, drugs, wealth, fame, sports and pride
Become our gods that we bow down before.
When Christians believed Satan lies that we were defeated.
He tried to erase the foundations of this nation
And convince us not to speak up, or vote.
When we gave up our God given rights
To a government that promised to meet our needs
With cars, loans, bailout, welfare checks and free healthcare.
When a fierily blast on 9-11 stole thousands of lives.
Our pride opened us up to thinking we were as powerful as God.
By walking away for Him, we lost His protection.
When we failed to support Israel
And lobbied for its division
Believing we know better than the Creator who own it.
When we turn our backs to Godís truth
And said there were many way to reach Him
In order that we can elevated ourselves to His level.
Because I was not prepared to fight
I found myself blitzed and losing ground fast
I was wounded and badly beaten
And forced to sound retreat.
Finial I found a foothold where I could stand my ground.
I was joined by others that too had been taken by surprise.
Maybe it was late, now we knew we were in a fight for our life
And we could no longer remain on the side lines.
We rally our supplies and faith.
We repented of our folly and indifference.
We put on our armor of righteousness.
We picked up our swords of truth.
We lifted high our shields and pushed forward.
Our battle, we now covered with prayer and the blood.
The angels joined our cause for justice.
The trumpet of victory was heard again.
Others who had still been sleeping
Now awoke from their stupider
And they too joined our combat.
Rallying behind our Banner
We started to turn the tide back
For there is power in Christís name.
The battle for justice will be won
Evil will ultimately be defeated.
The final results are already recorded.
However, we cannot give up the fight in the mean time.
We must make our voices heard again.
We must stand for what is right and holy.
We must remember our convictions and stand by them.
We must rebuild the walls around our cities.
We must reclaim our churches and homes as our own.
We must battle with our prayers for our families.
We must fight with our votes and our letters for our nation.
We must contest the unjust ruling of the courts.
We must combat ignorance were ever it is found.
We must summit to our true provider and protector
And not czars, unjust rulers and Godless leaders.
We must let our light shine forth for the entire world to see.
We must drive out all the darkness from this land.
We must stand firm and rebuke Satanís lies.
If we fail to rally to Godís cry to repent
Then we will fall with the heathens,
And taste Godís wrath likewise.
Whatever we choose, victory will be His
Even if He has to raise up dry bones for soldiers
He has already won this war with Satan.
The battle cry for war has been sounded
You can no longer afford to straddle the fence.
So choose today whom you will serve
Your life depends on it.
