Divine pursuit of judgment and warfare are topics, today, along with more on repentance, and the duty of Christian believers to continue as sinless until Advent.  The writer at “Yahoo! Answers Canada” using as her ID “Catherine Tanya Gee” (Level 4 with 3,280 points, a member since October 02, 2013) posted the following:

 

The holy wars are the people that beat up Jesus against the people who will fight against the people that beat up Jesus?

No one helps God, God does it all himself? We must sit, relax and wait for a paradise, no work required?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  Sinless Until Advent? (11/05/2014)—(5.)  Christian believers are to abide (i.e., continue to live) in a sacred condition established by atonement and propitiation (i.e., favor won on their behalf) through the ministry of Jesus Christ.  Salvation pertains to divine judgment, and is first provided as a legal status in the same way as birthright, crowning of a monarch, and inheritance.  An employee must first describe their ability through job applications and interviews, be hired, arrive to work on time consistently, and perform necessary tasks before finally being paid according to a pay schedule and agreement.  Believers are to maintain fellowship with others committed to Christ, carry out sacred practices, maintain self-discipline, and continue their spiritual growth meeting the same challenges, difficulties, and hardship as all others upon the earth.  However, believers will be strengthened by sacred knowledge of divine covenants, promises, proclamations, and prophecies from GOD that provide certainty, comfort, hope, joy, prosperity, and peace.  As a result believers complete their preparation, and are granted full acceptance and access into the divine presence at the second coming of Christ as the redeemer and savior who provides eternal life.  Consider again John 17:  3, 2nd Corinthians 7:  10, James 1:  12, 1st Peter 4:  11-13, 1st John 5:  20, Revelation 2:  10-11 and 21:  6-8, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.  And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD:  even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.  And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,  And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?  Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?  And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,  If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.  And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;  Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.  O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do:  but our eyes are upon thee.  And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.  (2nd Chronicles 20:  3-13, KJV)

(03/20/2014); Beyond Punishment (03/21/2014);  A GOD of War? 03/12/2013);  “Authorized Personnel Only (03/13/2013)

 

“Catherine Tanya Gee”, here are a few points that agree with Bible-based Christian belief:

(1.)  GOD has never declared or pursued war against mankind for control of the earth and conquest.  However, divinity has created armies as instruments who serve in judgment against covenant-breakers.  Those who left Egypt with Moses to enter the Promised Land are a clear example.

(2.)  Those pursuing holy war, jihad, and other religious conflicts usually do so as humans and individuals having no ongoing relationship with divinity such as prophecy and revelation, who are convicted of peculiar teachings from holy writ.  Such fighters have political aims of establishing human government, controlling commerce and trade, imposing ethnic and cultural traditions upon others, possessing real property (we say, land), reenacting events from earlier historical eras regarded as a “golden age” as well as outlawing or regulating public and private worship.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  Those who serve as divine agents in judgment also themselves must endure judgment, and are not exempt from obedience to sacred law.  Christian believers who submit to perform the will of GOD are to be in a direct communication with GOD established by an imparted, indwelling spirit having the makeup of divinity (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, joy, peace, wisdom, wrath against sin).  The Holy Spirit (some say, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth) establishes that human awareness and self-will wherein correction is above punishment, mercy above condemnation, and salvation above eternal torment.  Otherwise, the focus of warfare is only death, destruction, domination, and selfishness; and only the bestial and sin nature of mankind will be displayed.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
