Be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.
Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar, and unto God that which is God’s. (Caesar stole everything he has at the point of the sword and the threat of the sword. That’s why:
“Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.”-John 19:11
“Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.”–John 18:36
Christians must learn not to jump up and start shooting based on what the Romans’ government and the Romans’ media and even the Establishment Christian Media (like Moody) tells them is the enemy of the day. North Korea has had a brutal totalitarian regime for sixty years where having a Bible is grounds for either prison slavery or a capital offense. Why is the Southern Baptist Convention avoiding exhortations at Christians to go there and take up arms against the North Korean regime? Or even at least exhorting the ungodly, satanic, Christ-hating Obama regime to free the North Koreans once and for all?
One brother in Christ is helping North Koreans through physical ministry and advocacy testimony. See http://www.helpinghandskorea.com
The “Son of Hamas”, for all his militancy, was won when he found the words of CHRIST in the Bible that said “Love thine enemy” and saw the contrast with the treatment of Muslims against Muslims. “Love won out”.
Nobody can question Brother Andrew’s credentials and effectiveness in witnessing to unbelievers and to the ungodly and winning them to Christ, and that his “methods” work. His work in kingdoms and nations that murder converts to Christ has done more for the persecuted AND for winning the lost in those countries than Billy Graham ever did in the West. Nobody can say he has more passion or cares more for the brethren trapped inside nations with Christ-hating regimes.
And while Billy Graham waters down the Gospel and becomes ecumenical, and endorses the mess of “The Message”, Brother Andrew blasts the saving power and love of Jesus Christ the Son of God in personal sit-downs with the ungodly and leading them to Christ.
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”– Matthew 5:9
Like Jesus said, Pharisees and Saducees can often tell when it’s going to rain, but with all their knowledge about God and the scriptures could not discern the signs of the times. God’s judgments are approaching on the United States of America and its God-hating rulers (see Matthew 4, and yes, that includes both Mr. Skull and Bones presidents), and may well use the enemies of God to both punish them, and “judgment begins at the House of God”.
We can see the way the Word of God tells us the end from the beginning, but there are not yet four months to harvest.
