Convert Not Kill!

“When the dragon realized it had been thrown down to the earth, it tried to make trouble for the woman who had given birth to a son.  But the woman was given two wings like those of a huge eagle, so she could fly into the desert. There she would escape from the snake and be taken care of for a time, two times, and half a time.”

“The snake then spewed out water like a river to sweep the woman away.  But the earth helped her and swallowed the water that had come from the dragon's mouth. This made the dragon terribly angry with the woman. So it started a war against the rest of her children. They are the people who obey God and are faithful to what Jesus did and taught.” 

Revelation 12:13-17

You will often hear someone say today that it is difficult to win a war if you are not willing to name the enemy!  If you don’t recognize the enemy, you may find yourself embracing the one who wants to destroy you.

When you are at war, don’t be confused about who the enemy is.   In the War against Christians those who follow Jesus must recognize the enemy if they are to wield the Sword of the Spirit in making their counter attacks!  Your enemy as a Christian is not any other human being.  Your enemy is Satan himself!  He is the one who is orchestrating the War!

The Enemy of Christ inspires many men to join with him in fighting followers of Jesus, but the Blood of Jesus and His Holy Spirit are waiting even for those enemies of Christ who would turn to Him for their own Salvation!  

The amazing truth about the War between Satan and followers of Jesus is that our goal is to Convert Not Kill those who are fighting for Satan!  Then the only blood that is shed in the battle will be the Blood of Jesus and the only death will be the death of the “old life” of a New Believer!  

“Lord Jesus, help me today to fight to win those who oppose You so that they too can know the joy of Heaven!  May Your Name be praised forever.  Amen.”
