The door is open and no one is standing guard to keep out those who introduce confusion and destruction. Many voices are raised that bring only darkness, like clouds that cover over the sun of truth. Who will part these clouds so the earth is not totally enshrouded and the people of earth do not despair? How will they know that God still loves them and works for their good? Let us begin.
From the very beginning, darkness and confusion entered human history. The story had just begun and was in its very first chapters, when the evil one intruded, causing confusion within the first woman and sin within the first man. For mankind, this problem has always existed. From the beginning chapters, the heavenly Father also had a solution. He would raise up a woman and there would be enmity between Satan’s children and her children (Gen. 3:16). This was God’s plan from the moment that darkness entered into the world. God did not make a world of enmity. Warfare was God’s only solution to a problem that entered into a human history by a sinful choice.
That explains all that is happening today. Man has made a thousand sinful choices, of the greatest magnitude. He has opened the door. No one stands guard. The enemy intrudes and has free access to every part of human life. He enters the halls of congress. He sets up his household (yes, his household, meaning his minions) in the places of greatest power. He claims hearts that even deny he exists. (These are the most vulnerable.) His power is everywhere, in all the systems, in all the leaders, in all the people whom he influences.
What is God’s response? Will he call a truce? Will he sign a peace treaty? Will he agree to certain conditions? Will there be an arbitrated compromise? No, he will send a Woman and there will be total warfare until the Evil One is cast out and my Son, Jesus, again becomes the Lord of human history. Get ready for war because God will not compromise. You have one choice, which army will you serve in? No one will be on the sidelines.
Comment: This explains exactly what is going on. Warfare is God’s only option when men choose to follow Satan.
