It's Time to Fight Back
By Greg Laurie
A final word: Be strong
in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
The church is under attack as never before.
It is under attack around the world, and it is under attack in our own country. Christians are summarily mocked, marginalized, and dismissed as lunatics. Overseas, our brothers and sisters are being martyred by Islamic terrorists and Communists. It is enough
to cause Christians to become downright discouraged.
I have good news for you today: we win in the end. We may lose a battle here or there, but we will win the war. Jesus said of His church, “The gates of Hades shall not prevail
against it” (Matthew 16:18 NKJV). A military tactic used by ancient armies was to break down the gates of an enemy’s fortress by hitting them with a battering ram. Once inside, they would destroy the opposing army. In the same way, Jesus was saying
that Satan and his forces are not able to withstand or prevent the onward march of the Christian faith. The gospel will win, and the kingdom of God will win.
Don’t misunderstand. I’m not talking about a militant Christianity
where we force conversion. I’m talking about the loving followers of Jesus Christ seeking to persuade others to turn from their sin, believe, and be forgiven. I’m talking about when Christ comes back to this earth and establishes His kingdom as
King of kings and Lord of lords.
I feel that in some ways, the church today is a sleeping giant. The devil has declared war on our country. He has declared war on our culture. He has declared war on our young people. He has declared war
on the church, and it seems as though the church is collectively taking a nice, long nap. It’s time for us to put on the armor of God. It’s time for us to fight back.
Father, in Jesus name, we ask You to send Your guardian, ministering, & warring angels to surround America, and our neighborhoods,

of Christ, President Trump and Administration & our families (animals) from assassinators, predators, thieves, kidnappers, murders, abusers, arsonists, abortionists, oppressors, drunk drivers, terrorists, traffickers and drug dealers, those practicing

Father, in the name of Jesus we ask you to release your warring angels and your heavenly hosts, &
we decree and declare that they would take us off the enemies radar and scramble the enemies radar frequencies over us, and Your kingdom come and Your will must be done in the heavens and in the earth, In Jesus Name! Amen! Oh God, counteract all the darkness
and RESTORE the land! In Jesus Name!
“Now unto Him that is able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior,
be glory and majesty, dominion, and power, both now and ever.” In Jesus name, Amen Jude 1:24-25.
"Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour, (THANKSGIVING) and
glory for ever and ever. In Jesus name, Amen." (1 Timothy 1:17 KJV)
