Reclaim the Darkness with the Light of Repentance, Prayer and Action

By Bill Wilson

The Vice President of the United States is saying that America is losing the war in Afghanistan. The White House has out right rejected that two recent bloody attacks in Iraq were the result of the President announcing a timetable to pull troops out of Iraq by next year. The President has already reversed US policies that prevented sending taxpayer money to overseas abortion mills and opening up government funding of embryonic stem cell research-even though research to date has proven that embryonic stem cells actually reverse healing processes. The President and Congress have begun the task of taking increased government ownership in key industries, bringing America into the threshold of socialism.

There are more and more examples of how this gaggle of politicians are reversing the economic and moral underpinnings of traditional American society or accelerating them with new found initiatives and policies. The rush to reverse, in some cases such as private enterprise, centuries-old practices of the American system has been so swift that the new overload of commentary is difficult to digest. Its as if there is an attack on all fronts of what was known to be American and Christian. And the attack is happening so swiftly that nobody has time to understand the short and long term implications of just one policy change, let alone dozens.

Christian Americans must come to the understanding that our nation is being scuttled, gutted, pillaged and ravaged both morally and economically by some of the most scurrilous men and women the nation has ever known. These first 100 days of 2009 will go down in history as the time when America was lost as a worldwide power. The nation is being set up for extremely dark times that will seem less dark later this year because of a possible bump up in the economy, but it will likely be followed by another steep decline. While many Christian leaders are decrying the immoral actions of these treasonous politicians and businessmen, it falls on deaf ears because this is exactly what Americans voted into office.

The policies of this government are precisely what the leaders that were voted into office said they would do. While they may be liars and cheats, they did not lie about changing America because that is exactly what they are doing. This is a clear signal that the Church in America must wake up, quit tolerating the world and stand instead for the Word. The righteous among America must stand and present a clear alternative to combat this present darkness. Ephesians 6:12 says,
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
It starts with repentance and prayer, then action.
