There is no question that the world is facing a crisis. The terrorist attack on Paris, France has forced many governments to evaluate what their response should be. Adding to the dilemma is the multitudes of refugees seeking asylum. What do we do? We are facing an enemy that is cunning, , and has the resources to promote violence anywhere in the world. This war is like no other we have faced.
Consider first of all consider that this war is not politically motivated. It is centered on the total destruction of ALL infidels. (Those who are not Islamic.) This is a war of religious ideology. Radical Islam is based on religious conversion through violence.
Isis’ goal is to destroy every semblance of Christianity, but they will not succeed. Mt. 16:18 says, “… On this rock [Jesus Christ], I will build my church. The gates of hell will not be strong enough to destroy it.” Nothing or no one can destroy the Church Universal. Radical Aslam is calling for world domination but again it will not happen. “… The world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign forever and ever.”
One last observation. The CIA estimates that ISIS has between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters. In Isaiah 37, Israel was facing an enemy that vastly outnumbered them. But Israel’s king prayed Vs. 21 and God sent ONE angel and killed 186,000 soldiers! Vs. 36. That is a lot more than ISIS!
If America could get the Church to call on God and ask Him to deliver us from this hellish movement; ISIS could be destroyed in ONE night!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
