The Blessing of our Arms Isa. 49:1-2...

The Blessing of our Arms Isa. 49:1-2
Intro.  Our Lord was the “polished shaft” and the “sharp sword.”  Our heavenly Father wielded Him to destroy Satan, sin and death and to bring salvation.  Likewise, God’s people are to be His battle axe: Jer 51:20: Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.  He took 12 committed men and turned the world upside down.  When we ask the Lord to bless our arms, we are also asking Him to bless us in the right and holy use of them.  His blessings are not simply to make our arms effectual, but to make us effectual in the proper and right use of them.  If we ask for His blessings, we must understand that our arms are to be used righteously and in accordance to His Law.  God will not bless sin, wickedness or rebellion.  He blesses only obedience and those instruments that are used in obedience to Him. His blessings include protection. If we desire His protection, we must cling to Him in faith no matter the circumstances or the situations.  He has promised in Isa. 54:17: No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. It will do us no good to use our arms and fail to trust in the Lord.  He must keep us.  He must protect us. Ps. 127:1: Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Obedience not only brings protection; it also brings prosperity.  David admonished Solomon in 1Kings 2:3: And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself. Let us dedicate ourselves first and foremost to the Lord and as we do so, we also dedicate our arms to the proper and holy use for which they have been ordained. Prayer: Lord, we...

Congratulations, Leftists, you have won. You have taken over the West and now your worldview is triumphant. Europe, America, and the other former lands of Christendom lie in your grasp. The Age of Enlightened Utopia has arrived. So, congratulations, Leftists, you have won. But what is it that you have won? You have made White gentiles, particularly Christians, afraid and ashamed to stand up for their God and thus for the civilization with which He blessed them. Quite a feat, really, considering there was a time when Christian men would actually fight for their patrimony and declare it good. But not these modern “men”—clergy included, sadly—who whimper and moan their mea culpas on cue about all the wrongs of which they have been charged by the Left: racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, etc., etc. Now, thanks to your victory, these are no limits on what a man—or surely a woman–may be or become. Be trans-gendered and marry your pet! The bursting of the bonds of narrow Christian limitations is manifest in a thousand new human rights discovered every day in the unfettered Leftist imagination! And we silly traditionalists thought those Universal Human Rights were going to end with the civil rights movement to give the darker races equality. You have told us that all men, and all cultures, are equal. Or at least men have been forced to say they believe that they are. Procrustes has nothing on you! And once a man convinces himself of the rightness and goodness—and the necessity—of Equality,  he will then lay down everything he values on that altar. Even to the point of destroying the future for his children and grandchildren to prove how enlightened he is. Otherwise, he could lose his job and starve to death, along with his family. In your quest for Equality, you victorious Leftists have made it manifest in the material world. It’s not good enough to keep it in slogans—”All men are created equal.” No, it must be brought down to the material world in the form of the franchise and swag . . . and sometimes even jobs (but really cushy ones from which the unqualified employee cannot be terminated). And because you don’t believe in God or sin, you have convinced the rest of us that all evil is external to man himself and can...
