The Encounter III > What is God’s covering? What does it mean to be anointed and become a caped crusader, standing against the evil of our day? What is the calling of a Priest, and to be more than just a good person? Perhaps you say, “But I’m not a Priest, I’m just saved.” Just saved? Oh but you are, my friend. You are a Priest. If you are saved, then you have been elevated into a supernatural royal Priesthood. The question is, when will you realize the value of what you have received in Christ?
Don pondered the events of the past few days, his city, his Gotham, under spiritual attack on a magnitude beyond all expectations. It literally seemed that all hell was breaking loose on an unsuspecting people, and not a thing could be done about it, or so it seemed. Nothing our current leaders have any knowledge of doing, at any rate.
It had begun in the dark corridors of politics. Indianapolis saw a need to pass the RFRA (Religious Freedom Reformation Act), like several other states had already done. No big deal, right? WRONG! The whole thing blew up nation wide, and his city was now daily national news! But why? What was special about Indianapolis? Why Indianapolis and not the others?
It was a fire storm to the nth degree. As he worked his daily job, slowly driving through the parking lot in his silver Honda Civic, he called the “Silver Bullet”, not as in a beer, but going back to the Lone Ranger, a man who had to put on a mask and cover his face, live like an outlaw in order to fight the evil of his day, as he slowly cruised through, keeping an eye on the safety of those vehicles, he listened to every word, every lie, and every defeat coming over the airwaves.
More than one Christian had already been driven out of business by the homosexual agenda, simply because it was a violation of their faith to be involved in such a wedding. “Is there not a cause?” David had declared to his brothers and Israel’s army. So Christians are undeserving of any kind of legal protection as their faith comes under attack? Can the average person afford to fight a legal battle in our expensive courts? Do I have freedom of religion in America, as long as it harms no one else? Can a Christian speak of what that Book says, in America, without being financially ruined? Is that freedom? The free exchange of beliefs and ideas? Are not Pastors paid to speak every word of the Bible? Is that not their expertise? Has their very job become a fast ticket to jail, in America, land of the free? How far we have slid! And the pace is quickening!
Why Indianapolis? Could it be they see us as vulnerable? The next target on their list? As the idol god of MONEY began to threaten our city, I watched our governor fold like a house of cards, and a city go into panic. It was shameful, completely embarrassing, a black mark on this city. Yes, I do believe we are vulnerable, and the evidence is plain to see. RFRA had to be fixed, even though there was nothing wrong with it, fixed so we do not lose MONEY, who cares about the Christians, our MONEY is at stake here.
Don tried to find any source of logic in what he was watching unfold. Mass delusion was upon the people, logic and reason meant nothing. It did not matter what was true, only the perception, only the smoke and mirrors, only the lies, only the MONEY! And what does this reveal about the hearts of those promoting the lies? It must be a very dark place in which they live, but God’s anointed ones live in light, and we are a threat to their darkness, so we must be silenced in any way they can. You are a threat, Priest of God. You are covered and caped in something they don’t understand, but they are the haters, for they hate the light.
I do not believe in stealing. Do you? I do not believe in lying. Do you? So, if because of my faith, I do not believe in what a thief will do, does that mean I “hate” thieves? Or that I “hate” those who lie? I may not like what they do, and I may be against what they do, but that does not mean I don’t care about them personally! And it certainly does not mean I hate them! Is this something “unbelievers” are incapable of? Certainly not, for how many rehabilitation systems do we have? We prove our capability of this every day! And yet, they say you can’t be against homosexuality without being a hater? Oh how darkness loves to make the street only run their way, but it does mean that I do not want to take part in what they do! Nor do I want to promote it! Do I, as a Christian, a follower of Christ, still have that right in America? Do you, as an unbeliever, have the right to hate stealing, without hating the thief? There is no difference here, but as it has been said, logic and reason cannot stand against mass delusion, and they are perfecting it. How close are they to perfecting psychological warfare?
I watched my Gotham grovel before the feet of the idol of MONEY. The darkness was so thick I could cut it with a knife. They say 50% of hate crimes are committed by people 25 years of age or younger, as in the recent killing of nine African American Christians in a Church in South Carolina. Do you know what that means? The hand writing is on the wall but the professionals of our time fail to see, the blind leading the blind. This shows our future harvest! We have sowed these seeds and a very dark harvest is coming! Is homosexuality only 2% of our society? Check your schools and see what is coming! Yes, there is a great need for God’s caped crusaders.
Don found himself praying as he cruised in the Silver Bullet, and a scripture filled his thoughts:
“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” (Isa. 60:2)
(Dear Lord, as I have taken it upon myself to share these dangerous thoughts in a world rapidly changing, I pray for common sense once again to be alive and well in America. As the homosexual is free to believe what they choose, in the free exchange of ideas, I pray that so am I. Continued soon, I hope.)
