There is a great storm rising. Can you feel it? It’s a battle for God’s modern Jerusalem. A spiritual battle rages in God’s created land – America. The home of the free and land of the brave. Since its inception, the United States of America has rested all its actions on a firm belief in the Almighty. Every US State Constitution mentions God. And although there have been those that want to erase this truth, believers have held strong. Like all battles this one will destroy, it will maim, it will leave scars. But God stands as our great comforter. He is, as Paul writes in 2 Cor 1: 3-11. “The Father of Compassion and the God of all Comfort.” This “God of all Comfort” is waiting for us to turn completely to Him when we face the slings and arrows of those who would destroy us
I started following Sean Feucht on Instagram when he ran for office in California. He is a worship leader and strong family man. He loves God. And his loss for a chance to hold a government seat did not stop him for what has turned into his greatest mission – to fight for those of us who want to openly worship in what has become a modern Babylon. Through the ministry, Hold The Line, he and other pastors hold outdoor worship services up and down the west coast of the United States. This weekend they went straight into the heart of beast – Seattle, Washington’s CHOP – an area that ANTIFA declared independent from the country. They set up their microphones and instruments. And hundreds of worshippers came to sing praises to the Lord. And Satan showed up. Satan worshippers marched around them. People attacked the stage wielding knives. Pregnant worshippers were cussed at and spat on. The more the “opposition” screamed, the louder the singing became. Because God the Comforter was surrounding the believers. Their wall of bronze enveloped them and they sang. And they were baptized and they surrendered to the one and only Higher Authority.
Lest we think this battle is solely between believers and unbelievers the comments this organization gets from supposed believers is so disheartening. Many seem to think that Caesar has been placed as head of the church. The dictates about not being able to sing in California churches or how many people are allowed at church are deemed “worthy” by these church goers. Their fear has taken over their minds as they’ve forgotten the only fear we need to have is that of God. As for Sean and company, his trials are purposeful. God is using him and his family and friends to show how complete reliance on God to protect and comfort us is our utmost goal. His trials lead him to comfort others. We can learn of patience and endurance when we watch as he is attacked over and over and gets up each day to praise God.
This modern Jerusalem – a place on the hill for freedom of speech, religion, assembly – is worth fighting for. In the history of the world there has never been a country created to give all citizens so much freedom and so much responsibility, and called it God-given. As a devout Christian, I am commissioned to fight this good fight. And I will be comforted by our Great Father during my times of need. May I learn endurance and surrender so that I can comfort others.
Are you experiencing trials related to your faith? Tell us how you’ve turned to God in the comments. I’ve posted one of the videos an anti-Christian took of the Seattle worship service. There is some foul language on this.
