War; what is it? It is the method by which tribes and nations have historically settled their differences through physical, political, economic and/or spiritual violence. Physical violence causes people to die, or be incapacitated through the shedding of blood and/or some sort of blunt force trauma. War is always deception.
In physical war, weapons such as fists, clubs, knives, swords, incendiary devices, guns, cannons, bombs and missiles have been used. Other tools of physical warfare that are not lethal in and of themselves are horses, ships, planes to name a few.
In political warfare, it is the power, character, image and/or integrity of the opponent that is injured with the intent of removing that person from position of influence. The tools of that warfare have been words spoken or printed whether true of false. Political warfare is not in and of itself physically violent, although it can lead to physical violence if the differences between the parties/tribes is sufficiently intense and/or critical. Politics is a tool to avoid violence, and can be implemented on a local scale all the way up to an international scale. It can run across administrative lines, property lines, economic lines etc.
Then, there is economic warfare. This type of warfare is relatively simple, although it can be cleverly disguised for awhile. It amounts to withholding goods and services from an opponent leaving them deprived of necessities of life and the ability to administer a civil society. The clever deception in economic warfare is implemented by the bankers in that they print lots of currency (erroneously called “money”) allowing their nation to buy from their trading partner, and until the trading partner realizes that the currency has been inflated, and therefore devalued, they sell their goods and services in good faith. The alternative method of currency printing is to counterfeit your opponents currency undermining its integrity and disrupting the opponent’s economy causing inflation and devaluation of their currency. This is why gold and silver (real money) have historically been used to settle debts and payments between nations – even to this day.
A fourth and highly deceptive form of warfare is the spiritual warfare of which St. Paul writes in the Bible book of Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12:
12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” NKJV
Spiritual violence is done in the form of undermining morality. A highly moral nation as America was in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries eschewed adultery, fornication, homosexuality, (they never heard of transgenderism), lying, stealing, cheating, abortion, murder etc. Now, today, all of those things are common place, and we have a society that is in a rapidly declining spiral to the bottom.
This type of warfare is the most difficult with which to grapple, because the battle is not formally declared, and the battle lines are blurred, and it is forever on this earth – there will be no end to it. It in fact is the foundational motivation for the above three listed types of warfare. Jeremiah says; “The heart is deceitful above all else and desperately wicked; who can know it?” The Psalmist talks about his enemies speaking peace while war is on their minds. St. Paul in the book of Romans 3:10 – 18 points out the total evil and depravity of man. In general, the Bible is replete with the sinful nature of man and the chaos, wars and evils that come from that nature. By nature, it means that there’s no way of avoiding it because it is an inherent (built in) characteristic.
The Bible also teaches that there is nothing good in man, and that any good man does is because God has worked in him to do that good. World War I began in the Garden of Eden and was a war against God. It continues today, and will continue until such time as Jesus Christ returns to judge the “quick and the dead”. Jesus came to “save” the first time, and He demonstrated unequivocally to those whom He chose for salvation that He indeed was real, and He indeed had power – the power to overcome death. War causes death, and that’s it’s purpose. Christ called Satan “…the Father of lies and a murderer…”
The bottom line is that Satan is the fomenter of all wars and evil on the face of the earth, and that God restrains evil so that we are not as evil as we might be. Most everyone prays, but not necessarily to the right God, or if to the right God, they may not pray aright with a pure heart, and therefore, God will not “hear” them. Repent, and believe that Jesus Christ is the SON of GOD, that he was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered and was crucified dead and buried, and that He rose from the dead to everlasting life in Heaven above seated at the right hand of God the Father, and therefore, He has saved his “elect” from their sins and instead of eternity in Hell, they will have eternity in Heaven with Him in Glory.
