About Politics In Modern History Posts
During my academic years of studying theology, I could have cared less about politics. By early 2016, however, I realized how badly every Christian should care about politics. In the Book of Revelation, only two groups of people exist—the people of God (called saints in most translations) and the earth dwellers who seek to bring ruin to God’s people. It is the quintessential boiled down analysis of the world.
This same dichotomy that describes times past and future, adequately describes the threats we face today. This is not a claim that the apocalypse is around the corner. Biblical prophecy contains multiple layers of meaning and its timeless principles apply to the historical context of its readers, i.e. the Word is living and active.
Revelation’s description of cosmic events serves as a meta-narrative to discern earthly events, products of the ongoing cosmic struggle. The ending chapters which detail the ushering in of the Kingdom of God are the exception. Though they can serve as a microcosm of outpourings of the Spirit, they specifically prophecy of that time when all things will be made new.
In reading the multitudinous materials that mix politics and the religions of Christianity and/or Judaism, come profound voices from the past that need to be heard today. The Politics In Modern History series comes from these instructive articles. You will see that the left has not changed their communist agenda since the times of Woodrow Wilson. They have only gotten much worse, more flagrant, and more viscous. Revelation prophesies the increase of leftwing vitriol:
Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short! Revelation 12:12
Until Jesus returns, we owe it to our wonderful country, future generations, and most of all our Savior Jesus Christ, to take His never-changing and life-giving Word to where, as Martin Luther so decisively put it, “the battle rages.”.Because “we love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).
