A Nation Divided… :: By Terry James

Never have the words spoken by Jesus been more relevant than at this moment in the history of America:

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark 3: 24–25)

We watched this past week policemen and even members of the National Guard kneeling before the protesters in cities they were supposed to protect and govern. Amongst the protesters were the vilest of people determined to tear America down. The police and military governing officials actually were kneeling before these people as well as before the peaceful, lawful protesters.

Such entities as Black Lives Matter, supposedly an organization to champion the rights of African-Americans in particular, were, meantime, joining with the communist-backed thugs called Antifa in destroying infrastructure of cities and injuring police officers sent to assure the safety of citizens.

Still, the police and even some National Guard members knelt in ”solidarity” with those who perpetrated outrageous, unlawful acts of violence.

This, Jesus said, is what happens when a nation or a household is divided in loyalty and purpose.

America certainly is divided. It is divided at its very core. It is divided along a number of lines—politically, ideologically, racially, and one other, the most important divide of all, spiritually.

The political-ideological divide is so obvious as to need no explanation. However, mention it I will.

We have witnessed the assaults from the politically leaning left ramp up hatred against the current president. It is joined by mainstream news and entertainment media in its hatred for the president and his determination to rebuild America toward its former, founding structure—based upon constitutional authority steeped in Judeo-Christian principles.

Most all of social media join in the effort to further divide America, censoring conservative thought, which wants an America as founded. More and more, only “progressive” thinking that declares there is no desire for governance that includes godly morality dominates the likes of Twitter, Facebook, and others.

Proponents who embrace tearing America down and making it an internationalist rather than national entity, through open borders and every other globalist-engendered way, kneel before the god of this world. That god of this world is Satan, the father of lies, who knows that the way to achieve his own determination to produce his Antichrist regime is to remove the roadblock of nationalism. Particularly, he wants such a powerful roadblock to his goal as the United States removed as quickly as possible and in whatever way necessary.

The devil seems to be having his way lately. The media does its bidding in reporting the dividing of America—or seemingly so. Every night, the cameras and media voices portray this nation as tearing itself apart.

The division, they imply, is rightfully destroying America’s unfair structure of law and order. Current structures of law and order, they want us to infer, needs defunding or whatsoever else necessary in order to show how much we agree with the likes of Black Lives Matter. Media relish the scenes of some among that law-and-order establishment kneeling before the protesters who have been taken over by the violent, anti-American anarchists.

Satan, too, relishes the scenes, no doubt. He knows Jesus’ words are true: “A kingdom or house divided against itself cannot stand.”

The devil has half the country agreeing with having those assigned to protect us against the deadly destructiveness of anarchy kneeling before the anarchists.

The divide is there at every juncture of American life. We are divided right down the middle politically, ideologically, and racially, it seems. But it is the spiritual divide that’s most virulent.

It seems that fully half the nation, including most of the Millennials, has been deluded through decades of anti-American, anti-God inculcation. The education system has been corrupted so that most every higher educational administration has avowed communist or atheist teachers and professors at its core. This is considered a good thing by those on the left, because Thomas Jefferson said there must be separation of church and state. Only Jefferson meant no such thing, as anyone who sincerely examines his statement to the minister in his letter will conclude.

So much of America today, rather than standing, is kneeling before the anti-God forces of Satan’s planning for the globalist regime to come.     

There is a remedy. God always provides a way out of a sin-strapped predicament. Let’s look at Jesus’ words in totality in the matter of a house divided.

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. (Mark 3: 24–27)  

America is in a state of division. Satan has all of his agencies, both human and demonic, working in one direction to bring the nation down so he can complete his one-world order. He must disarm the nation by defunding the protective services through doing away with the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.

Half the nation, it seems, is kneeling before these forces of evil. The answer to our dire predicament is to do the same. We, who call upon the name of Jesus Christ, must kneel also. We must kneel before our Lord and invoke again the prayer as instructed by the Heavenly Father. As we approach election this November, it is imperative that we heed and do as instructed.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

We are not naïve. Our beloved nation and the world of nations will eventually fall to the global scheme Satan and his minions are working day and night to bring into being. The satanic, global order is there in Bible prophecy. But our prayers and efforts at the voting booth and in other ways can delay the devil’s implementation of his hellish scheme.

When the Church is called by Christ (Revelation 4:1) in the Rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51–55 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18), the world of rebels, sadly, will get their abominable New World Order. Let us be salt and light to the world until that glorious moment.
