Something Awful Unleashed 

It was recently said, “Something awful has been unleashed in America.” Few people think beyond the physical in trying to understand today’s world. Yet the Bible reveals a spirit dimension where dwells the God family and other spirit beings who interact with and influence our world.  

The apostle Paul lays it out in Ephesians 6, saying, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (verse 12). 

To understand some recent events and trends in culture and society, we must acknowledge the truth of this passage. The irrational, God-defying evil that has erupted upon America—and the world—comes from the realm of unseen evil and Satan’s demonic influence. This evil intends to unravel the fabric of human life. Satan’s kingdom is massing powerful forces of hate, anger and evil. They masquerade as good and fair values that liberate, confirm and advance culture and civilization. But they are doing the very opposite! 

When Scripture says love not the world nor the things of the world, it means this world is not your friend and does not seek your best interest. Events and trends have reached a point of no return. A Christian must be armed with a solid faith in God to withstand the battle of life before us.  

It is time to check our faith—protected by a shield that cannot be penetrated by doubt, fear or weakness. I encourage you to begin a personal study of faith. A strong belief and confidence in God’s firm hand in our life can be the anchor we need during these times. Here is the opening chapter to our booklet, “You Can Have Living Faith”.

Take some time to read it this weekend. I think it will lead you into a further study. 

Until next time,
