And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Your salvation was won by the violence of the Cross. Jesus came, lived
a perfect life and died a violent death. He was bruised; He was
crushed; He was punctured; He was whipped; He was ridiculed; He was
spat upon; He was scorned; He was abused; His hands and feet were
pierced; He was subjected to the most violent death of His
day—crucifixion. He has done His part.
Your salvation depends on your waging violent
warfare against sin. It is time to do your part. Friend, if you are
sick of sin and how it has laid waste to your life, then you must wage
war. War is public. The violent man goes to war with his sins. He
doesn’t make excuses for them, he annihilates them. He slays them with
the sword; burns them without mercy. They are the enemy. He will not
settle for compromise or negotiate a treaty. No dealing with the devil.
The violent man submits to God, resists the devil and the devil flees.
The salvation of your family and friends depends on
your waging violent warfare on their behalf. Call it storming the gates
of hell! You must be in a violent fight for the souls of lost loved
ones. Be in violent intercessory prayer. Get violent against the
strongholds of the enemy when it comes to taking your friends and your
nation back for God! And remember, stay alert. Warfare is characterized
by activity. Never look for peace while you proclaim war.
