Save Our City

“Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier, and your messenger and the one who ministered to my need;” … Philippians 2:25


… “to the beloved Apphia, Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house:” … Philemon 1:2


“You therefore endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.  No one serving military duty entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him.”  2nd Timothy 2:3-4



Editors Note: Looking at the newspaper last night and seeing the never-ending assault against God, His people, His Word had me pondering the scale of what is going on, not just in this state (South Dakota), but throughout the entire country and indeed world. 


Well if this interestingly put together ‘article’ incites the powers-that-be to chalk one more file against God’s servant as this article mixes a fictional scenario to preach God’s truth, but in their eyes mixing ‘religious’ ideas with ‘militant’ ideas equals a domestic terrorist, well so be it!  After all, these same powers (Eph. 6:12) are certainly going to be running the show during the reign of the Antichrist that will happen during the Tribulation (Jer. 30:7) upon those who will have been Left Behind. 



 Fellow Soldier:  “Sir, can we save our country?!  The enemy appears to be everywhere and they have a great following!  (Luk. 13:23-27)”


General Preacher:  “We are at war, the battle is strong, but worry not, though the enemy takes more ground, enlisting the already enslaved as their foot soldiers (Jn. 8:34), the battle is already decided, we have already won (Zec. 14:3-4; Rev. 19:11-21) .  Be strong and of good courage (Jos. 1:9).”


Fellow Solider:  “Well what can we do General Preacher?  There are many fronts on which the enemy is fighting and our platoon fighting for this country has been under a great and non-stop attack (2 Tim. 3:13).  The enemy keeps on coming and seemingly has a never-ending amount of new soldiers who are enlisting for their diabolical cause (Ex. 23:2).  They even provide them food and clothing, with promises of great things to come (2 Pet. 2:19) if they join the Archenemy’s (Eph. 2:2) endless march against the Great Commander (Rev. 15:3; 17:14; 19:16)” 


General Preacher:  “What troubles you and why do you not understand that this battle that rages against you, against us, is what we have enlisted for.  Our Great Commander gave His life (Joh. 10:18; 1 Jn. 3:16) so that we might have eternal life (Joh. 10:10).  Please do tell me why your strength is failing you, what ails you.”


Fellow Soldier:  “Well sir, our country is nearly conquered by the Archenemy.  We are fighting this battle in one of the very last States of this former great republic, that is still holding out.” 


General Preacher:  “Please do be more specific Fellow Soldier, let us address these concerns so that we might with our other fellow soldiers figure out a way to reach the hearts and minds of men (1 Co. 9:22; Luk. 14:23)  for our Great Commander.” 


Fellow Soldier:  “Thank you for the opportunity to speak at ease.  Let me break down the case as I see it against us.”


Fellow Soldier:  “Sir, all around our State the Archenemy has enlisted his people to push, promote, legalize and sell mind-altering drugs (Rev. 9:21) that entraps and enslaves a society (2 Pet. 2:19), allowing more to become enlisted in the war, as well as blinding the eyes (Joh. 12:40) and making the ears deaf so that we can not seemingly speak to them (Act. 28:27).  We nearly lost that battle, by around 1%, but our State stood strong, only falling on the medical excuse portion of the trap.”


General Preacher:  “Well Fellow Soldier, do not be so discouraged because the battle was close, for we did win that battle (1 Co. 15:57).”


Fellow Soldier:  “I know, but we nearly lost and for that I am worried and concerned about the future (Php. 3:13).  For the enemy will not stop, they will once again launch that same battle over and over again until they win.  I have seen and read about many other States where this battle is now lost and their culture is drugged out, violence rules the streets (Gen. 6:11-12; Mat. 24:37) and they have called this evil good (Isa. 5:20)!”


General Preacher:  “Well, I myself fought in this battle directly with orders sent to the Attorney General who did publish the Great Commanders Truth that I had send him regarding these matters to the enemy.  They certainly did attack back and ridiculed (Joh. 15:20), demeaned me (1 Jn. 3:13), but I stood my ground (Eph. 6:11).” 


Fellow Soldier:  “Yes Sir, I know that, but now I have seen a copy of the enemies battle plan published openly in the newspaper (Rom. 1:32), of which they also control.  You see, they have violently murdered the innocent (Psa. 10:8; 106:38; Pr. 1:11; Isa. 59:7; Jer. 22:17) , the unborn.  The Supreme Court of this land allowed a battle to be won against the evil of the enemy who controls portions of the Federal Government, taking the sword away from them, but placing it into the State governments.”


General Preacher:  “Please continue, Fellow Soldier, I have not seen these published enemy battle plans.”


Fellow Soldier:  “Thank you sir!  Well they were very bold and published their plans in the newspaper.  You see, they have launched a battle on the ballot to use those who defy their Creator (Psa. 2:1-5) to vote against His true and righteous edicts (Rev. 16:7), so that they might begin to slaughter the innocent in this State once again.” 




“You see, General Preacher, many other States have already fell, as the people followed the Archenemy’s battle plan and have continued murdering the innocent once again!”


General Preacher:  “I indeed plead ignorance, I have been watching many fronts on which the enemy was trying to make ground, but I had let my guard down on that one.  We need more fellow soldiers, this work is very great (Luk. 10:2)!”


Fellow Soldier:  “Yes sir, indeed!  We are actively working to enlist fellow soldiers (Col. 1:28), even telling them of the great benefits that our Great Commander has provided for those who are in His army.  We tell them that they will be pardoned from their evil deeds (Psa. 103:12), their sin will be forgiven (1 Jn. 2:12), we also tell them that the Great Commander will erase those deeds (Heb. 8:12) and write their names into His Book of Life (Rev. 21:27).  We also let them know that the Great Commander will give them eternal life (Joh. 10:28) and even go and prepare a place (Joh. 14:3) for them once the war is won (1 Jn. 2:17; Rev. 21:4).”


General Preacher:  “This has been a problem that is getting worse and worse (2 Tim. 3:13).  Our Archenemy’s army only promises them liberty (2 Pet. 2:19) to do that which they wilt, but in reality they are slaves (Joh. 8:34) to him, on their way to an eternal prisoner of war camp (Rom. 2:13; Gal. 5:21) where the fire is not quenched and the worm does not die (Mar. 9:44), yet they have no problem getting and keeping enlistees (Is. 5:14).”


Fellow Soldier:  “The gift and benefits from our Great Commander are unspeakable (2 Cor. 9:15) and priceless!  Only fools would deny such a great gift (Psa. 14:1)!  That is exactly what they are doing.  Even though they can murder those who have not seen the light (Job 3:16), the innocent, in many places, they are assaulting those States they have held out with nonstop battles, lying to the public in their news articles that most of their fellow doomed population agree with the murder of the unborn (Joh. 8:44).”


General Preacher:  “Fellow Soldier, pick yourself up!  This battle will have to be fought again, there is nothing we can do, for our orders are to occupy until He comes to receive us to Himself (Mat. 28:18-20; 24:46)!  Prepare for battle (Eph. 6:12), continue trying to preach to men to enlist in the army of the Great Commander  (Luk. 14:16-24) and be set free from the evil Archenemy’s fear of death (Heb. 2:15) upon the sons of Adam (1 Cor. 15:22).”


Fellow Soldier:  “Can we save our country?!”


General Preacher:  “No, our Great Commander has already told us beforehand that in the last days of the war (2 Tim. 3:1), the apostasy will come and people will no longer listen to the Truth but will rather prefer that which their itching ears want to hear (2 Tim. 4:3).”


Fellow Soldier:  “Can we save our State?!”


General Preacher:  “For now, our State is holding on, but the battle is not political, it is for the hearts of men (Jer. 4:4; Eze. 14:3)!  You see, it is a spiritual battle, but some of our political leaders have put roadblocks, landmines, tanks and weaponry against the diabolical schemes of the Archenemy (2 Cor. 2:11).  For now, those who pretend to change that what God has settled (Gen. 5:2), calling themselves women when they are men and men when they are women, has had the leader of this State fire weapons against them, setting them back, but they will keep coming, sometimes using the Courts as a means against the political leaders to fight back.  If our Great Commander doesn’t come to receive us soon (Rev. 22:20), we might lose this battle for this State, as other States have already fallen, some willingly.”


Fellow Soldier:   “What about our County?  Can we at least keep that?”


General Preacher:  “Even our County is under assault and our political leaders have not swiftly punished the wrongdoers that are foot soldiers of the enemy’s army.  They have let them walk free or unjustly set the punishment (Ecc. 5:8; 8:11) for their crimes against others unfittingly.”


Fellow Solider:  “Can we save our city?”


General Preacher:  “Our duty is to our Great Commander and we will participate in His Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20), preaching His Gospel (Rom. 1:16) so that some may be Saved (1 Cor. 10:33).  Fellow Soldier, you must remember (Heb. 5:12), when you enlisted you were given another citizenship, a heavenly citizenship.  Your citizenship is now in Heaven (Php. 3:20), this earthly citizenship is now your second citizenship.  Those in the ranks of the Archenemy are not given another citizenship, but instead a great Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:15) has already been prepared for the Archenemy (Rev. 20:10), his fellow demons (Mat. 25:41) and all who do not repent towards God Almighty (Luk. 13:3; Ac. 17:30-31) and accept the Great Commander as their Savior (Ac. 20:21; Joh. 14:6).”


Fellow Soldier:  “We must regroup and begin with our household (1 Tim. 5:8; Ac. 13:46), ensuring that the Archenemy is not making headway into our own homes (2 Tim. 3:6; Tit. 1:11)!”



General Preacher:  “Indeed!  Now Fellow Soldier it is almost as if you are ready for a promotion (1 Tim. 3:10)!  That is the attitude and with due diligence we will be successful as the Great Commander will keep that which is His (Php. 4:7).  We must keep focused on following Him (Luk. 16:13; 1 Cor. 2:2) and His orders (Joh. 10:27).  We need to engage this war and warn men everywhere (Col 1:28; 1 Th. 5:14) that they must repent (Luk. 13:3) and preach to them the Gospel (Ac. 20:20) that they might become enlisted and our fellow soldiers (Joh. 3:15-17; 2 Pet. 3:9.”



Fellow Soldier:  “Look now, I now see the necessity to do as you often reminder me and our other fellow soldiers (Pet. 1:13).  Each day I must ensure that the put on the Armor (Rom. 13:14).  Look now, I have my waist girded with truth (Eph. 6:14), I have on the breastplate of righteousness (Eph. 6:14) and my feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:15), I also have ensured that I have not forgotten to take the shield of faith (Eph. 6:16).  My helmet of salvation (Eph. 6:17) is always on and the sword of the Spirit (Eph. 6:17) I have hidden in my heart (Ps. 119:11) and meditate on it day and night (Ps. 1:2).”


General Preacher:  “Fellow Solider, as you have been found faithful in a few things, you will now be given more responsibility (Mat. 25:23.)  From now on you must help some of the other fellow soldiers to be trained and to complete boot camp (2 Tim. 2:2) that way that are not blown by every whim (Eph. 4:14) of the enemies propaganda.  Do you understand that Lieutenant (Heb. 2:13)?”


Lieutenant:  “I’m honored for the promotion General Preacher and will not let down our Great Commander, I will press on, even following His example of not loving my life unto death (Joh. 15:13; Mar. 8:35; Rom. 6:10; Rev. 12:11; Heb. 11:37), if necessary.”


General Preacher:  “Let me warn you now Lieutenant, you will meet with many others who call themselves fellow soldiers, some who are Generals, Lieutenants and even pretend to be the commander, but they are wolves in sheep’s clothing (Ac. 20:29; 2 Cor. 11:3-4), false commanders and the way of life they have not known (Luk. 21:8; Joh. 5:43; Rom. 3:17)!  You must be on guard for them (Ac. 20:31), for they will seek you out and they will be seemingly flattering and smooth with their words (Rom. 16:18), seeking to come amongst you and those given under you by the Great Commander, in order to come in as spies and wolves, destroying the flock of the fellow soldiers (Ac. 20:28).  You must always be on guard, daily (Php. 3:13).”


Lieutenant:  “My responsibilities are greater now than I imagined General Preacher, but I will do the work of a good soldier (1 Pet. 5:2).”


General Preacher:  “Fine words, my son, fine words, the Great Commander is watching (2 Chr. 16:9) and you will stand before Him at His Judgment seat (2 Cor. 5:10), but fear not, He is merciful (Dan. 9:4), only be diligent to do His good work (2 Pet. 3:14; Col. 1:10).  For there are many false soldiers, who say they support us, but they support the enemy (Mat. 7:13-23; Luk. 18:8).”


Lieutenant:  “What about those who say that they are our fellow soldiers and do not get involved in the war or are found sleeping (Luk. 6:44;Joh. 14:15, 23-24)?”


General Preacher:  “Ah yes!  But you follow the Great Commander and do not worry about those (Joh. 21:22), He will sort those out (Mat. 13:24-30; Rev. 14:15).”
