Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. Matthew 12:25
Satan loves chaos. Throughout history humanity has chosen the devil’s path to division and destruction rather than the way of unity and glory through Christ. And the same continues today.
Satan and his forces are responsible for the divisiveness that is prevalent in the world today, pitting nation against nation, race against race, church against church, brother against brother and man against God. He destroys individuals, marriages, homes, churches, communities, nations and civilization itself. Hatred is one of the fastest ways we become the author of our own demise.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
Satan’s destructive forces have taken many forms over the millennia, but one of his most successful and deadly in modern times is Marxism. Marxists hate not only God but the world itself. They believe that they are morally superior to God and can do a much better job at building a just society. But before they can do that, they must destroy the old. That means they must destroy what Mao and his Red Guards called the Four Olds: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. Thus, things like the Church and the Constitution must be obliterated.
Like their father, the devil, Marxists destroy by sowing division. They divide based on class, age, gender, race, and sexual morality. They turn people against each other using the deadly sins of greed, envy, wrath, and pride. Then they burn everything to the ground. The entire system must be destroyed completely and utterly.
Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas are blamed for all the evils of mankind and therefore anyone who still holds to them is also evil and must be destroyed, their reputations sullied, their families persecuted and their property stolen.
Many of the well-meaning followers of Marxist ideologies, including a large number of Christians, believe that after the old, evil system is destroyed a new and just system will be erected in its place – the perfect Communist society. But that is deception at its apex because Satan cannot build; he can only destroy.
There is not a single example of a successful Marxist revolution that has produced the establishment of the Communist ideals. Without exception, every Marxist revolution has been followed by terror, oppression, and mass death due to famine or execution or both. In the 20th century alone, Marxists killed approximately 100 million people. And the devil danced.
Satan is using Marxists yet again and like their father, they lie to achieve destruction.
They have even convinced some of the faithful that sins aren’t sinful, that it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you are sincere, that God cares only that we are happy, that objective truth does not exist, that police hunt black men for sport, that the American system is racists and rigged against black men, and that no matter how hard they work they will never achieve the American dream due to white privilege and systemic racism. Then they riot, loot, and burn our cities.
It is obvious that Biden isn’t going to be the savior of America. Neither he nor Donald Trump can stop Satan’s plans because the true cause is not physical, but spiritual. Only God can save us.
Just as God told the Israelites, “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 heir sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Marxism is present today in our government, in our congress, and throughout our country. The only way we can avoid the coming destruction is by turning to Christ. Satan divides – Christ unites! Satan destroys – Christ glorifies!
“…Let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified…For the Lord your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deut. 20:3-4
