Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Is America embroiled in spiritual warfare? I raise this question because of the following reasons that have America in a very dark place:
(a) Wickedness in high places with the masses being betrayed by the people we elect to serve us. Many in high places have become self-serving and have succumbed to the wiles of the Devil and his evil schemes. God is revealing to the masses who our leaders are. We must pray for godly wisdom to select godly leaders. It appears as though right has become wrong and wrong has become right. Right will always be right, and injustice will always be wrong. There is no justification for the switch. God ordains right and wrong.
(b) There is a falling away of the church to the point that there is a decline in church attendance. Financial commitment to the church has declined. There is a lack of commitment to attending worship services. Worship service is a time to reverence God for who He is and His holiness. We are to worship God in spirit and in truth; God is a Spirit and must be worshipped as such (John 4:24KJV).
(c) The church and America must remember our first love; God. The church also must remember that individually we as Christians are the lit candles shining the light of Christ in this sin-darkened world. Collectively, the church is the city that is set upon a hill calling lost souls to Christ. If we the collective body of the church have succumbed to the world, then our light has become dim. We the church is a called-out people to separate ourselves from the world as it is an enemy to God.
(d) Lastly, We must wear God's body armor daily as we are fighting against principalities in high places, but God, the Holy Spirit, is present with us, and we are victorious. Why? Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33KJV).
Yes, America is we are in spiritual warfare, but all is not lost; turn back to God (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV).
