As I address the Christian community after giving much thought in the process of wondering about man’s end I couldn’t help but feel dismayed by the violence that is seen in the world. This violence is not only one that is physical, it’s also spiritually violent which is includes the tongue. Violence in the world is the result of the fall. This fall has brought in murder, hate, racism, torn marriages, the great divide between political parties, molestation of innocent children and war. We have seen slavery, the holocaust, and so many intricate factors where sin and evil is exposed. When will it all stop, how will it stop and what will it take for it to stop?
First all as Christians in the faith we have a duty to pray to the very God we believe in because it is the fabric how we should tackle the hidden world that lays behind the veil of realm, it is the invisible place hid from the eyes, it is that which we are unable see. What makes people hate so much? Is it because of jealousy or envy? What makes a husband abuse his wife or a wife to control her husband and do devious things to trouble his heart. This great divide in the comes straight from the powers that are unseen. It is not our government that we are fighting against, it is noted “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places, Ephesians 6:12” No Christian is a laymen or woman in this battle, this is not fight, it is more than a war, it is “Armageddon” not the final war but a war that is bigger than life itself.
We are to arm ourselves, the scriptures say’s that we are to “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil, Ephesians 6:11“. The Devil is slick and cunning and able to deceive those can’t discern between right or wrong. He lords himself over all mankind without a crown as king, he acts as if he is the creator when he is the created. The bodies of human beings are tools in his world to hinder the kingdoms growth. However evil cannot permanently reign, somewhere down the line it will come crumbling down. Babylon came down, Rome came down, Egypt came down and countless others, even empires and kings.
When will it all stop? It will stop in the final analysis when Christ comes, “Behold he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him, Even so Amen’, Revelation 1:7. How will it stop and what will it take for it to stop? It will stop when Christ overthrows the beast and all those who follow him that were deceived were cast into the lake of fire and judged, (Rev 20:10-15). God love’s the people and all those in whom sin has brought trouble to save them through his love by sending his Son into the world so that we may have life eternal. Christ wanted to bring an end to sin that haunted us for millenniums since the fall. God’s love for humanity is the chief end to evil and sin. His heart warming compassion to the weak in spirit down to the soul he saved or rescued from being into the Lake of fire from it’s endless torment.
God will wipe away all tears from our eyes, death and sorrow and even those who suffered from the extreme pains of hate will have a place of rest with the father forever in Christ. The only way to end this war with hate is with the love of Christ.
