Dave Kubal: Biden’s ‘Battle for the Soul of America’ is Really a Battle Against US

Dave Kubal, IFA CEO/President | September 3, 2022




Lord, we need You. Give us the strength to stand in these difficult days and the discernment to fight the spiritual battle in our nation today.



“The battle for the soul of America. “


This line was from President Biden’s national address last night in Philadelphia was carried by every major network. It was also at the heart of his 2020 campaign and incidentally was a line that President Barack Obama spoke in speeches as president.


Little does President Biden know, but a truer statement could not be spoken.


It’s a spiritual statement actually, “the battle for the soul of America.” Our souls are created by God—they are eternal. Our souls exist for God’s purposes, either unredeemed from sin or redeemed by Him. Using a spiritual term for political campaigns and speeches ironically reveals that our nation is not just in a battle of ideas. Indeed, at this hour, our nation is in a spiritual battle at a deep level.


As President Biden spoke Thursday evening, flanked by military members, and bathed in ominous red light, he shook his fists as he spoke, demonizing millions of Americans who stand for values that he clearly abhors. Values that are part of the outworking of the souls of people of faith. “They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies,” he said, characterizing half the nation’s citizens and called them a threat to the country with another spiritual reference.


What does Biden believe the “soul of America” should be, you might ask?


According to the President’s speech, not our biblical values. Our values are dangerous to America, he warns. Protecting life, ensuring religious freedom, honoring biblical marriage, these values are preventing the values President Biden and his Administration advocates for our nation. You can see that it really isn’t a battle of political party, but a battle of kingdom values—the kingdom of light versus the kingdom of darkness.


Believe in the legal protection of life for the pre-born and newly born? Believe in the right of churches and people of faith to freely worship, practice, and speak? Believe in a biblical view of marriage, gender, sex—a view held through 5,000 years of human history? Well, you have been warned. You are now an enemy of the state. The spiritual battle raging in our nation is now a declared war in the natural.


As intercessors, we have known that this nation—like every nation in history—faces a battle to either live by God’s values and accomplish His purposes and destiny, or to reject them and go their own way. Our founders chose to enshrine God’s values, evidenced by the language and principles in our founding documents. They built them into the very foundations of our nation.


We are living in a unique time. We have reached a place where our own leadership openly vilifies the values that were at the heart of our founding (and more than two centuries of history). Anyone holding these biblical values is called ‘MAGA,’ and slandered as dangerous, hateful, violent, and extreme. In a classic tactic of the progressive movement, he is accusing us of what he is really doing. President Biden claimed that ‘MAGA’ people oppose the Constitution, law enforcement, and the rule of law. We don’t oppose these things. Nothing could be further from the truth.


Citizens standing for biblical values and constitutional principles were the focus of the bulk of the President’s speech—an angry speech devoted to deriding and threatening half the nation.


What they are fighting against isn’t us. It is God in us.


So, how do we respond? With prayer and action. We engage in the spiritual battle through prayer. And we engage in action to push back on the radical ideologies overtaking our nation. We cannot expect to win the “battle for the soul of our nation” without the weapon God has given us – prayer. It is our time to protect the nation through our active prayer and civic action.


“And the LORD said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.”
(I Samuel 8:7 NKJV)

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
