“The victory is ours when the battle is the Lords.”
Tayo’y lupang hinirang, bayang pinili ng Diyos. Mahalaga tayo. May kinabukasan. At may katungkulan.
As Christ’s firstborn nation in Asia, we have a high calling, a glorious future. We are called to prepare the nations for Christ’s return.
For decades, the enemy has tried to cripple us with corruption, immorality, idolatry, greed, and invasions by other nations. As Christ’s coming draws near, the battle grows fierce and intense.
External forces are moving to secure our natural, God-given wealth, riches that will fund our missions to the nations. An international gambling casino complex is planned in Metro Manila that will make us the Las Vegas of Asia, or another Macau. It will not only tempt, entrap, and defile Filipinos with a spirit of greed and love of money, but also our visitors from other countries, all in the guise of promoting tourism and providing Filipinos with more jobs.
This will bring God’s curses rather than His blessings and riches. Our mandate, then, is to spread God’s light to the peoples of the world, not fill them with darkness.
Let us unite and fight warships with worship! Let’s put aside denominational differences and face the common enemy. Let’s battle for our heritage as a first-fruit Christian nation, called to rise in these last days, and reflect Christ’s power, love, and glory.
Worshiper-Warriors March Forth!
When tiny Israel under King Jehoshaphat was confronted by massive armies of the enemy, God gave them a strategy for victory (2 Chronicles 20:20). They were told to put the singer-worshippers ahead of the soldiers. For God inhabits the praises of His people and rouses His angels to march forth with us. If God is for us, who can be against us?
