real-resistance

You adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever chooses to be a friend of the world renders himself an enemy of God. Or do you think the Scripture says without reason that the Spirit He caused to dwell in us yearns with envy? But He gives us more grace. This is why it says:

          “God opposes the proud,
                but gives grace to the humble.”

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you. ~ James 4:4-10, Berean Study Bible

 

Join the resistance:
Cry heard round the world
Calls all right standing
Righteous disciples
To submit themselves
Fully only to
Adonai, not as
Nations’ patriots,
But Sons and Daughters,
Kingdom Citizens
Holy Spirit filled,
Taught, empowered, led
To resist devil
In whatever form
He reveals himself,
Whether spirit or
Human or evil
Personified—sick
Depraved, merciless.

Godly resistance
Sends devil fleeing;
The most powerful
Defiance ever:
Refusing to yield
To his temptations,
Submitting instead
To the Will of God.

Wearing His armor
Holy activists
Stand up against the
Satanic arrows
Seeking to puncture
Humanity’s core—
Life, liberty, and
Happiness pursuit—
Unalienable
Rights from the Supreme
That trump politics
Always, forever.
