God's Sword of Truth - The Word
This country is GUILTY!........and shall be judged for all of its so called political acts (or reasons given for war) done in the name of the Lord. Both sides (North and South) are guilty. Both sides took up swords in the name of the Lord. Both sides killed in the name of the Lord. But......the Lord of the true Christian was never a part of these evil deeds. However, I will mention that many religious men were involved in this war and who were not Christian.
Which side was more evil?. . . . . .Both sides had Catholics, Baptists, Protestants, etc., etc., . . .both sides took up swords and killed each other in the name of government, country and the Lord. And what chapter and verse did they use from the Bible to justify the atrocities committed during this war? Where were the peace makers and those that forgave? Were any of them true Christians? Did any really know Jesus (THE WORD)? It is not I who can judge their souls.....but I do judge their fruits of the past and they are as guilty as Satan is their father.
All those who take up swords for a government or for whatever reason shall die the death.
The Civil war (of 1861-1865) was America’s sin.....and war is man’s sin. You can never blame killing, in any form, by anyone, as the Lord’s work. He shall judge all souls, but "none shall be killed", as the soul and spirit shall live forever.
This country is not under God.....it never has been. It was founded by Satan and money. Evil and money control this country. It always has. It shall lead all to Anti-Christ and the end of the world. There is no hope in any man or his government. The wrath of the Lord is the only end of it and the only hope for man is when Christ returns.
There is no good thing in man.....look around.....check it out.....everything that man has done results in death! If man was left alone, he would destroy all creation. Thank the Lord Jesus, because He shall not let this happen.
How can anyone believe or follow anything that man has formed, started or created? There’s certainly no faith in what man has done and there’s certainly no hope in it either.
Patriotism to a country, flag, religion or patriarch of any kind is Anti-Christ. The citizenship of a Christian is in heaven. . . not on earth, not to this life but the next to come.
What does it profit a man to gain all the world for a short time and lose his soul to hell forever. Nowhere in the Word does it say to be a part of this world or its government. In fact, it warns us that to love this life or live for this life in this world is to be an enemy of God (not a quote)...read I JOHN 2:15.
Every answer to life is in the Word of the Lord. It has to do with salvation in the next life, not this one. In this life you die. . . in the next one you live forever...and that’s a long time. Satan has brain washed the world....they are all programmed into destruction. He has their minds and bodies but is after their souls. What is so sad is that man’s religion does not teach the people to live by faith or to trust in Christ. Religion teaches faith in a system and feelings...which has nothing to do with the Holy Spirit Who gives the true body of Christ faith, which has no feeling - just a hope in things not seen or felt. There’s no flesh involved in Faith...the Christian walks by faith, hope and love, not by sight, flesh or mystic means.
Keep in mind that the most important fact is that war (all wars) are evil and of Satan. This being so, then the Civil war was not after the Holy Spirit, but was after the devil. Both sides were evil and all who had a part in it have suffered and will pay the price at the White Throne Judgment of the Lord. They lived by the sword and died by it. If anyone is not under the blood (or repented) for their sin, then they shall die the second death.
A big problem today is that the world accepts sin as a way of life. If it doesn’t hurt anyone let it be....let it alone....it’s human....it’s a part of life.....and who are we to judge! And as the saying goes...."as long as it doesn’t effect my way, my choice, or my life". Well it does effect your life. We are all a part of each other. Sin is of Satan....and we all pay for it. We are all sinners and we all are responsible. We should hate sin as it offends the Lord.
The only good war is when the Lord defeats Satan, and He has won that war already. Jesus did it on the cross. Besides, that was not a war, it was an event, foretold of evil being taken care of.
The opposite of war is peace, and peace has a foundation of love and forgiveness. From your heart, could you give me an answer for war?
"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. " - Matt.5:44
