There's No Reason To Fight For This World

"Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?" - John 18:10-11

"Jesus said, 'My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.'" - John 18:36

"Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?" Matthew 26:53

This is one reason why Christians are not to fight this world, make war on this world or anyone else for God. There's no reason to! This world is going to pot and the Bible says it would. Peter tried to fight when Jesus was arrested and cut off the ear of a guard with a sword but he was rebuked by Jesus for doing that. Jesus also made very clear if he needed an army he could have one instantly...thousands of angels would be as his disposal to fight for him but he wasn't here the 1st time for a war

Our job is not to fight with others. We aren't called to "Christianize" this world. We're not of this world so why would be want to hang onto it? Christianization is never gonna happen anyway. That's pretty clear in the Bible. Anytime "Christians" have tried to do this is history it's always failed because that's not God's intent so of course it's not gonna succeed

God knows those He's chosen and once He has those He's's all over. Our job is to let as many people as possible know..."Dude you're playing on the wrong team!" We don't know who the elect is. The general call goes out to the whole world. God knows those who will come and those who won't and those who won't have heard the call and rejected it. It's on them now. It's a commandment for us to do that and when I think about those I know and love having to face Him as He's ruthlessly executing judgment it scares me! Look...God doesn't need our help to take what is His. When He decides to return and start a turkey shoot He will

He won't be showing up secretly and knocking on doors or having secret meetings with a special few. He's gonna kick the door down in front of everyone! We can't force anyone to be a Christian. That's up to God alone. All we can do is tell others and that's it. He doesn't even need us to do that. God doesn't need anything from us. He chooses to allow us to take part in His plan so it's not like all of God's plans will fall apart if we don't do it. He existed just fine and happy long before man. There's nothing He needs from us and if God wants to He can just blow this planet up. He still has the entire universe at His disposal and under his rule. The kingdom that does matter is Heaven and God is still enthroned there. Remember Heaven is the kingdom Satan tried to take first. That didn't work out so well. Everything else God can destroy and rebuild if it pleased Him without our help. Which one of us was there to help Him when he created everything?

*crickets chirping*


Let me tell you though who finds this world so important that he'll fight tooth and nail to keep it....

"the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ." 2 Corinthians 4:4

"Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out." John 12:31

"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." Ephesians 6:12

"in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient" Ephesians 2:2

Of course Satan uses any means and as many people as necessary to keep his dominion. When people wage war on others in this world "for God" they're not fighting for the true God. They're fighting for the god of this world to protect his feeble throne whether they do it in ignorance or not. Satan knew Messiah was gonna come. God told him in Genesis 3 He would and the Messiah would "crush his head". He fought against that happening but everything he did and everything he tried didn't work. Messiah comes and Satan tries to kill him while He's a baby. That didn't work. When Jesus hung on the cross Satan thought he won! He didn't...he was in fact defeated. His head was crushed. Like a snake will continue to snap when its head has been crushed so is Satan. He knows very well Messiah will come back and he's once again doing everything he can to prevent that

So of course Satan will wage war against anyone who's a threat to his "kingdom". This world is all he has. A little speck in the universe and he means to keep it! Just like a narcissist! It doesn't really even belong to him but he thinks it does and will kill, maim, harass, threaten, destroy anyone or anything that poses a threat. He has subdued earth at God's good pleasure. When God is ready to take it back He will and there's nothing anyone or anything can do about it. You may wonder "when is God going to do that?" Whenever He feels like it. God is not constricted by time like we are. He's sitting in eternity. There is no such thing as "time" for Him. We see things as yesterday, today and tomorrow. God sees everything all at once in front of Him. Satan's little running amok (though it seems ages for us) is not even a minute to God

"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you" John 15:19

"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8

I saw a program once on TV about lions. The male will patrol his territory from one end to another making sure no competition has stepped into it. This is exactly what Satan does and if he finds a threat to his territory he unleashes and tries to devour them...US. This is why Christians are persecuted and killed. We are the threat to his rule. Jesus never said we wouldn't be persecuted and killed. He said we WOULD be. The only way it's gonna end is by Satan being removed and he will be. His days are numbered

Pray for those in the world, do what you can to help those in the world but don't become attached and definitely don't fight for it
