This world is ruled by forces believing themselves to be equal to God and enemies against him. They have wrongly decided to set themselves up in his path. In Eden man was conscripted into their side of things. Thusly, we fell into their rebellious ways and will receive the consequences which they will earn when all things are concluded and reconciled. Thankfully, Jesus brought us back through his blood and sacrifice. That said, their is still a war, an enmity between the world and God. Though we are now on the winning and original side, we cannot forget that if God has enemies, then so do we. These institutions and people seek God’s demise and are willing to view us as collateral damage in that process. Our eyes must be on and our head must be on a swivel of discernment. We should never be surprised when opposition to God’s callings manifests in our lives. We must remain steadfast and allow God’s plan to overtake whatever evil designs have been laid. Not even death could stop him. Just be faithful , trust his character and give him time and all things will be reconciled in the end.
MY NAME IS JOSH MCGARY.
First, I am a Pastor of a small church in Portland, Oregon named Aletheia Bible Fellowship. We call it ABF. I have been a pastor there for the better part of 20 years.
I am very eclectic. What I love, I love loudly and immersively. I have notable collections of toys, funko pops, and vinyl. I also infamously love pop culture, comic books, technology, the arts, psychology and philosophy.
