Psalm 91:5-7: Spiritual Warfare

Part 2 Of Psalm 91

Not To Fear The Enemy’s Attacks

You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day; -Psalm 91:5

The enemies’ strategic attack at night is for the purpose of becoming less noticeable to believers to catch them off guard. The demons shoot their arrows from a distance, hoping that we won’t be watching to do the most damage to our faith. It will disable our progress in the Lord if we get hit. Since the arrows come from above, it doesn’t matter if it’s in the daytime because many will not be looking up. If we are walking in obedience to God’s Word, these attacks will have no effect on us.

The Enemies weapons: Plagues & Arrows of destruction

Of the plague that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that devastates at noon. -Psalm 91:6

A plague is a virus that compromises the body to destroy the person from within. Satan will attack you through someone you know to introduce destructive heresy in a subtle way. You must always be in the alert by knowing God’s Word very well. If the plague does not work during the night (in a stealth mode) then, openly, he will bombard you for complete destruction. The Shield of Faith is what will protect the Christian from annihilation.

Many Might Fall But He Will Keep You Safe

A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not approach you. -Psalm 91:7

Even though many professing Christians are losing [falling away from] their faith, be assured that our faith in Jesus Christ— for those who are genuine believers— will not be snatched from us so that we may lose our hope, and worse, our salvation. Jesus promised that He will keep us from abandoning Him in John 10:28

John 10:28 “and I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.”

Spiritual Warfare In WordPress For The Soul Of Mankind

There is a spiritual warfare going on in WordPress and on other media outlets for the souls of mankind. Believers in Jesus Christ have to continue the good fight, getting out to the people the Word of God. We are living in a time where our free speech is being suppressed by shadow-banning and through other means.

I know that we as Christians can get discouraged at times because we don’t see the impact that our posts are doing in people’s lives. I would like to illustrate what happens when you preach God’s Word through your post.

The gospel can be illustrated to that of a grenade. Let’s say that you take out the pin from the grenade and throw it into a room then walk away, not hearing the explosion or even seeing the impact that it will cause. Even though we cannot see the impact that we are doing when we are spreading the Word of God through our posts, know for certain that just like a grenade which explodes, and changes the structure of the room, so the gospel when it is read in our posts will change a person from within.

For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

-Hebrews 4:12, NASB

Keyword: Active

The Greek word for “active” is “energés”, it is where we get the word energy. God’s Word is like a grenade that is full of energy, ready to come out after activated by pulling out the pin.

A grenade contains words with messages, for good or for bad. If what you are preaching is the truth of God’s Word, then your grenade is filled with the gospel of Jesus Christ (medicine for the soul), once it explodes, it will make a difference, healing the person. If your grenade, in the other hand, is filled with false doctrine, or hatred, it will destroy lives.

Believers must continue to preach the message of Jesus Christ in the platforms that God has given us. The return of Jesus Christ is so near that we have to bring as much people to Jesus as possible, so that they won’t go through the Great Tribulation, and even worse, hell.

19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to follow all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

-Matthew 28:19-20, NASB

We are commanded to make followers of Jesus Christ by presenting the gospel to them. After their conversion, we mush help them with their walk with the Lord by teaching the Scriptures to them in a plain way.

To The Concerned Folks

This post is for those who had a genuine concern for me, thinking that I was becoming prideful in my comments while defending the truth of God’s Word. I appreciate that concern and will try to answer why I stand on certain issues.

When defending God’s Word, sometimes it might come out harsh, which isn’t my intent, and I will work on being as gracious as possible without compromising God’s truth. Even Jesus offended the religious leaders of His time.

12 Then the disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” 13 But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant will be uprooted. 14 Leave them alone; they are blind guides of blind people. And if a person who is blind guides another who is blind, both will fall into a pit.”

-Matthew 15:12-14, NASB 2020

The truth hurts when the person doesn’t want to submit to it. No one likes to be corrected or disciplined. That’s human nature. But if the one correcting you is unbiblical with what he is bringing forth, then you must swing the pendulum back to him. Meaning, you must assert your position if indeed it is biblical. The Scripture is our foundation. It is where we get the truth, and our lives MUST be constructed on it.

One of the concerns was in reference to this comment of mine: “All Democrats, are in support of murdering babies and for homosexuality. They pretend to care for Spanish and black people. All they want is our vote. There is zero good in a Democrat. They are godless and if they claim to believe in God, then they are deceiving themselves because they support unbiblical practices.”

If you are a Christian, knowing full well that your support will endanger the lives of innocent babies, would you think that the other policies can somehow trump the murdering of the unborn? Even if the Democrats just supported that policy and nothing else, that alone should disqualify that party from receiving the support of a Christian who is spirit-filled. Friend, murder is murder. You can paint it whichever way you want, but the result will be the same.

We as Christians are not here to help kill people, but to give them the message of salvation. How can that child grow up to do the will of God if it is killed?

Some Christians vote Democrat because they have passed laws that helps them of certain benefits they need. Let’s put it into perspective.

I don’t want to sound mean or insensitive to those who need help. By choosing to vote for a party that is pro-abortion since it will benefit you in continuing your coverage, you are thus choosing self-preservation over someone else’s life. What type of faith is that? That mentality will force you to make a decision that will harm others instead of trusting Christ for the things that you need (Matthew 6:33). As long as you got your food on the table and your healthcare coverage, who cares if millions of babies die?

Seeing it in that perspective, how does it make you feel?

I cannot fathom how a Christian who reads the Bible and knows what God feels about babies who were sacrificed to Molech, as mentioned in Scripture, can still be okay with supporting laws that approve of such practices like it.

I won’t go into the other issue of homosexuality since its wickedness is obvious, but I will address why I support the president. First of all, President Trump is not a Christian. The office of the Presidency is not predicated on personality but on being capable of doing the job. One of the requirements for a Christian to choose a candidate is if his morals align more to a Biblical view. That is how I vote. I am not voting for a Christian leader, but for the best person for the job who is for religious freedom, protects the people, born and the unborn, and supports Israel.

What does the Bible say about politics?

Every person is to be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

-Romans 13:1, NASB 2020

God is the one who instituted governments for the protection of the people from invaders and wickedness.

2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same

-Romans 13:2-3, NASB 2020

13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15 For such is the will of God, that by doing right you silence the ignorance of foolish people.

-1 Peter 2:13-15, NASB 2020

Pray To The Lord For The Welfare Of Your Nation

Seek the prosperity of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD in its behalf; for in its prosperity will be your prosperity.

-Jeremiah 29:7, NASB 2020

How do you seek the prosperity for the nation you live in? The answer is found in Proverbs 29, see below.

2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, But when a wicked person rules, people groan. 4 The king gives stability to the land by justice, But a person who takes bribes ruins it.

-Proverbs 29:2, 4, NASB 2020

The phrase “righteous increase” refers to the laws that govern a nation, to see the welfare of people’s lives, protecting its people from invaders outside, the wicked from the inside, and to help increase one’s prosperity. A nation that’s corrupted destroys everyone living in it. My mother left a socialist country, Cuba that oppresses its people by taking away their freedom. To see America headed in the same direction with the Democrat/socialist party is very concerning.

Look what happened to the Jews in Germany when no one opposed an evil leader. As Christians, we must see the welfare of America to advance the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because our time is short, and it will get worse before the rapture.

I will never compromise the Word of God; I judge all things according to it. If you have any other concerns, feel free to leave me a comment and I will answer with Scripture and with grace.

May we continue to grow into the image of Christ. Fight for the gospel against false doctrine, exposing them. Contend for righteousness and warn others of Satan’s trap. Read the Scriptures every day with prayer, interceding for leaders, family, and friends. God bless.

P.S. I thought I was done with political posts, but someone contacted me again through a comment engaging me with the same issues. What you see here is my personal conviction and it isn’t going to change.
