We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood! Part 8, “Political Correctness: Christo-phobia?”

To read part 1, go here…JANUARY 15 (We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood!)

“Wherein in time past ye walked

according to the course of this world,

according to the prince of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Ephesians 2:2

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.pngWith all the politically-correct phobias these days, you would think that Christianity would likewise get their own phobic status.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg Perhaps it could be called, “Christo-phobia”.

.

Yes, with the absolute hatred and persecution and murders of Christians throughout most of the New Testament era and the current Christian persecution in the Middle East (and even a growing antipathy here in the Western nations), you would think that today’s Christianity would qualify for a politically protected status.

But alas, Christianity does not qualify for the seal of approval from the overlords of political-correctness (whoever they are!).

MANY CHRISTIANS DELUSIONAL?

.

Even some self-appointed authority wrote a rather ambiguous article about Christophobia in Wikipedia, writing in somewhat double-speak, that it was “usually” the product of a delusional class of Christians who imagine themselves the victims of such persecution…

Listen…

“Christophobia is the irrational fear or hatred of Christianity or Christians. While Christophobia is a real thing, it is usually used as a snarl word by some Christians with a persecution complex and (at most) only a passing familiarity with reality. There’s probably a good overlap with the people who claim there’s a liberal bias in the media. For whatever reason, the term hasn’t really caught on well as more verbose alternatives such as ‘anti-Christian bias.'”

.

Can you believe this guy? Does he have any idea of how many Christians are currently dying for their faith around the world?

.

Does this guy think that other “politically-correct phobias” are likewise not real, as he accuses “some Christians with a persecution complex” of being somewhat deluded? Probably not!

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”

.

Satan, who controls the media, to a great extent is purposely limiting the overseas news reports, in a successful effort to keep Americans and American Christians in the dark, as to the growing intolerance and violence against Christianity in other nations.

But even right here in this supposed,”Christian-friendly” nation, just ask those cake-bakers, T-shirt slogan-printers, and other businesses who are suffering legal troubles and even job-loss, because of their beliefs: ask these people if their Christianity is being challenged by this growing Christian animosity and intolerance in our land.

.

Yes, the world hates us, and will ultimately try to stamp us out, as they once did during the Dark Ages.

.

So don’t hold your breath about Christians ever reaching any politically protected status in this world!

.

That day will never come!

“We wrestle…against…forces…spiritual wickedness in high places”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

But, as Christians all know (or should know), the Bible reveals the true source of our troubles…”Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpgagainst the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:11   

.

Yes, it’s not actually the people of this world who are self-inspired to hate and persecute Christians. No, but rather, Satan, “the god of this world” is the true progenitor and overlord of political-correctness!

“Good News From A Far Country!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But the Good News is, that One came into this world to save humanity, who was persecuted and murdered by those who were true Christo-phobics!

.

And Jesus promises us…“These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

.

With such great and precious promises as this, who cares if we never get protection from the world!?

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

 

SIGN IN HEAVEN

.

Well, If you look up and lift up your head, you just might see a wonderful sign, which God spoke about in Revelation 12. It is a constellation of a woman. The ancients only saw it as a great bear. It is commonly known as Ursa Major . It is also known as the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper), but with the addition of various other stars.

.

But with the eye of faith, it actually appears as the Revelation 12 Woman. You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful.

.

Listen… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place… from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:1, 2, 14.

TRAVAILING IN SUMMER, FLEEING IN WINTER

star-chart ursa major

.

In the summer night-sky, Just as this passage

 says, she appears as the woman-in-travail. But in the winter, she flips upside-down, to appear as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12, just as this passage states. But whether this Virtuous Woman is in labor pains, or fleeing to the mountains, she is the heavenly icon of God’s bride, His Church.

.

And now we need to explore how this fleeing woman in the heavens relates to us, the Church. Just like this fleeing woman, we too, need to flee from the wrath to come. But how do we flee? And where do we flee to? Well just read this article and you will find out exactly what the Bible has to say about all this.
