It Is Time to Go For the Jugular

American Christianity has lost the killer instinct.

For most of you reading this the thought of killer instinct and Christianity do not seem to go together.  In our desire to “show the love of Jesus” we have permitted the Name of the Lord to be dragged through the mud.

I always find it interesting that Christians think it glorifies the Lord to come up on the losing side of the debate.  It is the FEAR of the Lord that is the beginning of wisdom.  The political world no longer fears Christianity and as a result they have no fear of the Lord.

In wrath remember mercy.”  When was the last time you heard a pastor preach on the wrath of God?

The election of 2016 will go down in history as a watershed moment in the battle for Western Civilization.  Against all odds the most anti-Christian Party in the history of American was jettisoned from their perch of power.  The miraculous election of Donald Trump did not happen without the intervention of Almighty God.

We can argue all day as to whether his election was a blessing or a curse but no matter which side of the goal line you stand you cannot deny the Supernatural intervention.  Donald Trump was God’s foot-in-the-door to the anti-Christ Clinton’s and their criminal enterprise with their machinations designed to heave the final shovel of dirt on this once Christian American Republic.

It is my belief that very few Christians understand how close we were to the criminalization of Christianity and the overthrow of Western Civilization.  The fact that you think what I just said was hyperbole shows just how blind you were to the sword of Damocles swaying over our necks.

I believe in the very depths of my being that Almighty God has given us a temporary and final reprieve from the outpouring of His terrible wrath.  Could it be that in His wrath he has remembered mercy?

Look my Christian friends.  We are in a war. As hard as it may be for you to believe the Bible teaches us that the Devil has a team.  In the past couple of months his team has come out of shadows and is in full-force rebellion against all things righteous.

The biggest mistake that an athlete can ever make is to underestimate your opponent.  Our enemy plays to win.  They do not take no for an answer.  They are relentless in their attack and they are unrelenting in their desire to overthrow the King of Kings. We have only begun to experience the depth of wickedness to which they will descend in order to regain the lofty perch from which they have ruled.

History will record that we are embarking on the Gettysburg of this cataclysmic battle.  We must win NOW or we will never have the chance to win again.  Yes, my friends, it is that serious.

Why don’t Christians play to win?  Why do we think it glorifies the Lord to see the enemies of the cross seize control of this nation?  Why do Christians fall all over themselves in attempt to show how loving and tolerant we are?  Why won’t we fight for righteousness in support of the Conquering King we claim to serve?  Why are we so hell-bent on loving the Devil’s team more than we love the Lord’s?

Please don’t give me that “we win in the end” crap.  It is nothing more than a cowardly excuse to keep us from engaging the enemy.  Jesus came to “destroy the works of the Devil.”  Why doesn’t it bother us that our enemies are ruling over us right now?  When will we rise up and see His Kingdom come “in earth” as it is in Heaven?

Despite what you have been miss-taught this world does not belong to Satan.  Jesus won it back at Calvary.  ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME BOTH IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH!  If Jesus has ALL power…how much power is left to the Devil?  What in the name of hell is Satan doing controlling this nation?

The haters of God are on the rampage.  For the first time in two generations they are on the defensive.   They are no longer calling the shots as God’s bulldozer is clearing the field of political correctness.  It is time for those of us on God’s team to go for the kill.

Growing up I loved the story of David and Goliath and the upset victory that he pulled over the uncircumcised Philistine.  David didn’t show the love of Jesus to Goliath.  He didn’t reach across the aisle and reason with him.  He didn’t negotiate the terms of surrender with the Giant.  He didn’t share the Gospel or the Four Spiritual laws with him.

David ran towards his enemy, slung a stone at him, knocked him to the ground, cut off his head, and paraded his stinkin noggin down Main Street in Jerusalem.

I had a friend tell me one time when I was taking on a pretty imposing foe, “If you shoot the King you better make sure that you kill him.”

Somebody slung a stone and dropped the communist/progressive/anti-Christian giant masquerading as a political ideology. Christians are going to have to make a decision as to whether it is more Godly to love our enemies or crush our enemies.  The giant is wounded and I think it would be wise to follow David’s example and cut off the head of the snake.

Our enemies want to destroy us…why don’t we want to destroy them?

All good coaches understand the importance of momentum.  When you get the opponent on their haunches you do all that you can to crush them.  Our team has finally awakened and our opponent is wounded.  Now is not the time love them…now is the time to bury them.

We cannot go soft and allow them to pull victory out of the jaws of defeat.  God has given us victory over our enemies.  This opportunity will not come again.

The Lord is a man of war: The Lord is His name!”  Let’s follow David’s lead.

It is time to go for the jugular.

    Very well. How do you propose we do that? For David it was clear: a huge enemy in front of him with a sword ready to kill him. David approached on the field of battle and fought. I, for one, do not have a person in front of me with a weapon advancing upon me and my family. I see a bunch of whiners protesting every little thing that offends them. I choose to be nowhere near such idiots.

      I will pass the question on to Coach Dave, who wrote this article, but for me personally, I see this more as an issue of no longer compromising our values in exchange for the “go along to get along” culture. I appreciate your comment and hopefully Coach Dave will have a better response to this. God bless you!

    Amen Coach…I told my husband yesterday that most Christians are missing what just happened. We won nothing yet, all we did was pick our leader and START the war. We haven’t even fought our first battle yet. This is only the beginning of the struggle. I pray continuously that we are Cowboyed up and ready to STAND. It only now will get real . I pray we are ready !! Thank you for being ready to stand !!

    If we as Christians were to go for the jugular why didn’t Jesus encourage Peter and the rest of the apostles to just hack away:

    Matthew 26:52-54 Then saith Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. (53) Or thinkest thou that I cannot beseech my Father, and he shall even now send me more than twelve legions of angels? (54) How then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

    All of the scriptures must be fulfilled including this one repeated 5 times in the gospels:

    Matthew 10:39  He that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
    Matthew 16:25  For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
    Mark 8:35  For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s shall save it.
    Luke 9:24  For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
    Luke 17:33  Whosoever shall seek to gain his life shall lose it: but whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    Jesus was trying to drive home the point that this life in the flesh is to be totally forsaken if we want to be a disciple of Christ which is a follower and learner of Him who matures in to the same example of Him:

    Luke 14:26-27 If any man cometh unto me, and hateth not his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. (27) Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
    Luke 14:33 So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

    Please learn the difference between the letter application of David and Goliath and the spiritual application:

    2 Corinthians 3:4-6 And such confidence have we through Christ to God-ward: (5) not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; (6) who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

    True history has proven that while this nation had many Christians in it at times it was by no means a Christian nation as the native Indians are a testament of the genocide this government and its standing army were capable of as they slaughtered millions while displacing the rest in deserts for the sake of capitalistic aspirations:

    Mark 12:31 The second is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    Matthew 5:42-48 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. (43) Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy: (44) but I say unto you, Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you; (45) that ye may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust. (46) For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? (47) And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the Gentiles the same? (48) Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    Sure you will get a lot of pats on the back by patriotic Christians for your hate filled diatribe but you will find no grace from the Father for knowingly promoting the opposite of what Father’s Word commands of the Christian today:

    Hebrews 10:26-34 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins, (27) but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which shall devour the adversaries. (28) A man that hath set at nought Moses’ law dieth without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses: (29) of how much sorer punishment, think ye, shall he be judged worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? (30) For we know him that said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. (31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (32) But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were enlightened, ye endured a great conflict of sufferings; (33) partly, being made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, becoming partakers with them that were so used. (34) For ye both had compassion on them that were in bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your possessions, knowing that ye have for yourselves a better possession and an abiding one.

    I have been attending Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management meetings for 10 years to bring truth to an agency that is infiltrated with Environmental Defense Fund members and advocates, fighting for fair regulations in our industry. This organization basically wants all who access the Gulf, a public natural resource, to pay resource rent for that access through various regulatory actions. Their plan includes reducing the fleet of boats that carry passengers to the fishing grounds so those in the industry who are working with them can make higher profits-supply and demand. This process we are dealing with is costing jobs and businesses and we are about to take a huge hit if they’re not stopped. EDF is our Goliath.
    All we want is fair access to the fishery, being conservative in that access, so the family vacationers we serve can have a fun family experience.

  9. The cross is the symbol called the “tau” and is symbolic of “Tammuz”, the PAGAN god of Babylon. The Christ was killed on a “stauros”, according to all 16,000 ancient texts from which Bibles are translated and assembled, and the word ONLY translated in ancient Koine to stake or pole. The “tau” was in use since Nimrod’s day, and is still in use today. It is idolatry, and is an affront to God and to Jesus.

    So called Christians in America have lost their aggression because they have been seduced by the feminist movement. Men are acting submissive and subordinate like women were made to be while women are becoming dominate and aggressive like men were made to be. As a result America has pursued this foolishness so far into oblivion that most people now believe that women should have the right to cancel out their husbands vote with her own vote. Real simple strategy by our Communist enemies. Turn men into mentally castrated homosexuals and turn women into monsters that murder their babies and don’t obey their husband. Viola. Marriage broken, families destroyed, leadership gone, children confused and rebellious, nation destroyed.

    …Because most of the Shepherds SLAUGHTER the sheep, caring only to create passive and weak sheep they can take advantage of. “Woe to the shepherds that slaughter the sheep”. Time for the sheep to realize ONE thing. There is ONLY ONE SHEPHERD, and He said, “Let those who READ understand”. Obviously the shepherds have led you to the slaughter. READ or get slaughtered. Hearing is NOT understanding. Your OWN reading and seeking IS. Dumb sheep do not understand, and they are slaughtered. Zech 11 – “Feed the flock of the slaughter; Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.” If they have a book to sell, they are a WOLF in Sheep’s clothes. The ONLY Book you need is the Bible. If they do not preach the EXACT words within it and make up their own, they are WOLVES. The TRUE shepherd is coming, and the wolves will be cast into a lake of fire.

    I agree, we need to fight back. We need a leader to organize counter-protests, and to make known that we will not be trod upon anymore. Coach, are you that leader? I am willing to fight, but none of us can fight alone. I have been waiting for someone to open a forum so we can join the marches, to join the PEACEFUL demonstration of our demands. WHO is going to do it? I don’t have an audience, but you do, coach.

    Interesting you would say that Coach, because from when I sit religion is one of the front runners in dumbing down our society to believe in fairy tales. When Jesus admonished to Love your enemies, he meant to love them as you continue to love your children even if they irritate you. He did not imply that you should lay down your arms and embrace your enemies physically. Especially when he went into the temple and overturned the money-changers tables in disgust while trying to attend the celebration of Passover.
    If Christians believe their gods will save them they had better wake up, otherwise they will become slaves to the warlike human hordes. There is an old adage with speaks to this; “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”. That way you’ll never miss a step by those enemies and know of every move they make.

    When politics turn ugly and they want to enslave everyone to do the bidding of the State, the churches turn a blind eye because their lively hood, they believe, will be taxed into oblivion. If they continue to bow to the state, they are no more than sycophants left sucking hind tit !

    I’d start fighting back through simple, old fashioned evangelism. Way of the master style. Preach the gospel. But preaching the gospel means not sitting in our living rooms watching tv, it actually means engaging a lost and dying world with the good news of Jesus. That while we were still sinners Christ died for us. And because of His sacrifice we are no longer on God’s death row…

    Can we ‘go for the jugular ‘ without a ‘revival’ of the Understanding in Truth of the message of the The Blood of His Cross? I think not.
    Until the Church returns and picks up again on the Use of the Blood of the Lamb in praise and worship and pleadings and prayers and intercessions and all else,the end shall not come.The gospel preached in evangelists will still be another gospel.
    We need more than ever to major on the True Cross for theiin lies both the holiness and the power.
    The Spirit indeed answers to the Blood.The higher the level of the PeciousBlood in our hearts and out of our mouths, the higher the levels of The Spirit in all His operations in and out of us.There is a Bloodline going through scriptures. It must be found and followed like lanes of our highways ,or else!

      That song writer understood this passage:

      1 Timothy 6:12-19 Fight the good fight of the faith, lay hold on the life eternal, whereunto thou wast called, and didst confess the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. (13) I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; (14) that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: (15) which in its own times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (16) who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen. (17) Charge them that are rich in this present world, that they be not highminded, nor have their hope set on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; (18) that they do good, that they be rich in good works, that they be ready to distribute, willing to communicate; (19) laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on the life which is life indeed.

      Sadly the patriotic Christian that tries to wrestle Mystery Babylon(USA) from the devil is fighting the wrong cause:

      Luke 4:5-8 And he led him up, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. (6) And the devil said unto him, To thee will I give all this authority, and the glory of them: for it hath been delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. (7) If thou therefore wilt worship before me, it shall all be thine. (8) And Jesus answered and said unto him, It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
