HOLY SPIRIT: Recently, you read a popular song during one of the World Wars.
ME: Yes, I read that song. It was sung on the Christian radio broadcasts. The name of the wartime song was, ‘Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition.’ I heard some saying that it was not very Christian and the words “praise the Lord” and “pass the ammunition” did not seem right for a Christian while others felt it was right.
HOLY SPIRIT: You have been asked several questions as to what Our Father thinks about war.
- You have also been told that Our Father is involved in wars that take place on Planet Earth.
- For example, you were reminded of how King David of the Old Testament said that Our Father taught him how to be a warrior.
- You were told that there are times Our Father uses force, including war, to overcome human beings who are oppressing innocent people, especially children.
- You were told that Our Father does not offend the free will of you humans and thus permits groups of humans to war against other groups of humans when they choose to do so.
Though Our Father permits these wars, even some times influenced by Satan, He still controls the events taking place on Planet Earth for His purpose. There is another factor about this matter of Our Father and war that Holy Spirit is going to communicate with you in this message.
HOLY SPIRIT: It is very important to understand that though Our Father is involved in wars that take place on Planet Earth neither war nor the violence of war become a part of Him. Though Our Father may use a war for a good purpose, since war is violence, there is a sense in which war does not come under the category of good. Thus, because Our Father is totally good, war is not a part of Him. That is why there will not be any war in the Great Millennium and the New Heaven and New Earth that I (HS) had mentioned in the Book of Revelation. This is what some Christians were sensing when they heard the words “praise the Lord” and “pass the ammunition.” They knew that there was a point at which the Lord and war do not mix together.
The angels that you are seeing around you are involved in war. They are involved in spiritual warfare with Satan and his demons. And as you have been learning, they are also involved in the war in which your nation is involved. An important thing to note is that angels do not let the violence of war become part of their inner beings.
Holy Spirit wants to lead us to some Scriptures in preparation for this report.
1 Chronicles 22:8 – But the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying, You have shed much blood and have made great wars. You shall not build a house to My name because you have shed much blood on the earth in My sight.
1 Chronicles 22:9 – Behold, a son shall be born to you who shall be a man of rest. And I will give him rest from all his enemies all around. For his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness to Israel in his days.
1 Chronicles 22:10 – He shall build a house for My name. And he shall be My son, and I will be his Father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.
HOLY SPIRIT: As a commander of armies of the Hebrew people, King David only went into battle by the direction of Our Father. Now note this. Our Father did not permit King David to build the Temple because he had killed so many people as a soldier. Our Father uses war, but there is a point at which Our Father does not want war to become part of the experiences of your inner being. The Temple, Old Testament and New Testament Church, were and are not to be built on violence and power, but on the love of Our Father. This may be a little difficult for your human mind to understand but there is a point at which Our Father knows that the violence of war and love of Our Father can mix together in your inner being. Violence within you would always destroy the love of Our Father.
Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be on His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Revelation 19:11 – And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war.
Revelation 19:12 – And His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns. And He had a name written, one that no one knew except Himself.
Revelation 19:13 – And He had been clothed in a garment dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19:14 – And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Revelation 19:15 – And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, so that with it He should strike the nations. And He will shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger and of the wrath of Almighty God.
Revelation 19:16 – And He has on His garment, and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
HOLY SPIRIT: The first time Christ Your Lord came to Planet Earth, He came as the Prince of Peace. The second time He will come to Planet Earth He will come as a Mighty Warrior, defeat Satan, demons and evil and place them in Hell and there will be one thousand years of peace on Planet Earth. Even though there are times Our Father uses the quality of violence to defeat Satan and evil, Our Father only uses the qualities of peace and love as Christ Your Lord builds His Church.
Luke 9:55 – But He turned and rebuked them and said, You do not know of what spirit you are.
Luke 9:56 – For the Son of Man has not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save. And they went to another village.
2 Kings 1:9 – And he sent to him a commander of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him. And, behold, he sat on the top of a hill. And he spoke to him, Man of God! The king has said, Come down.
2 Kings 1:10 – And Elijah answered and said to the commander of fifty, If I am a man of God, then let fire come down from the heavens and burn up you and your fifty. And there came down fire from the heavens and burned up him and his fifty.
2 Kings 1:11 – And he turned and he sent to him another commander of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said to him, Man of God! So says the king, Come down quickly.
2 Kings 1:12 – And Elijah answered and said to him, If I am a man of God, let fire come down from the heavens and burn up you and your fifty. And the fire of God came down from the heavens and burned up him and his fifty.
HOLY SPIRIT: When the disciples saw their Master, Christ Your Lord, insulted they wanted Him to call fire down from Heaven and destroy the offenders like Prophet Elijah did when a king and soldiers tried to arrest him.
Then Christ your Lord told His disciples that He had not come to destroy people but to save them. Our Father may use force and war to control evil, but He uses love and peace in the building of Your Lord’s Church.
Holy Spirit will continue with some more thoughts about the topic of war. Though there are times when Our Father uses war or permits war between nations on Planet Earth, there is a limitation to what these wars can accomplish. You will also learn that just as an army on Planet Earth can have a fortified area, so the demons in the spirit realm in the First Heaven have fortified or stronghold areas.
Do wars have any affect upon the evil beings of Satan and demons that exist in the First Heaven or atmosphere above Planet Earth? Holy Spirit will continue this discussion as He (HS) leads us to some Scriptures in preparation for this report.
Be greatly blessed!
