We Are at War on Two Fronts

On May 6, U.S. officials announced they provided information to the Ukrainian military, enabling it to launch missiles that sank the Moskva, their Russian Black Sea flagship. This has been portrayed inside Russia as its Pearl Harbor event, thus rallying support for the war against Ukraine and its NATO/U.S. backers. This is a proxy war between NATO/U.S. and Russia. If neither side backs down, we will be in World War III and it will come to America. Russia has nuclear weapons, hypersonic missiles, a Satan II nuclear bomb that could destroy an area the size of Texas, an underwater nuclear drone that could destroy our East coast, and jamming technology that can paralyze our electronics.
But we are at war on a second front as well, in the spiritual world. The Word of God is clear that we are engaged in a spiritual battle, and that our enemies are not human: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:10-13
Satan loves war because war causes great destruction of human life, sending thousands or millions of people to the Lake of Fire, his venue. He is after our souls and the souls of our loved ones. Like fire, he never says “enough”.
Let us pray for the people of Ukraine, and that this war comes to an end. But we must first be on our face in sorrow and repentance – as individuals and as a nation, for our Lord uses nations to chastise His people when they are unrepentant and in blatant sin (as our nation is, embracing abortion, porn, same sex marriage, transsexuality, materialism, and pride). We need to put on our spiritual armor, become prayer warriors, and reach out to the lost with the love and truth of Christ. And we need to be ready to go – physically and spiritually, for we never know when we might be called home. We should live every day as if it is our last, because some day we will be right.
