“Neither”

1043

After visiting and hearing the hearts of Russian and Ukrainian believers, I’ve come to understand that this war and the coming wars are not about one side that’s good and the other side evil.

I have a picture of Joshua standing before the Angel of the L-rd, asking Him whose side He is on. And the angel of the L-rd responds, “Neither, rather I indeed come now as Captain of the Army of the L-rd – ‎שַׂר־צְבָֽא־יְהוָה”

While the leaders of nations are raging and attempting to gain control and expand their own kingdoms, Adonai is appearing in the midst of this devastating man-made power struggle, bringing many soldiers and civilians into a divine encounter with the Angel of the L-rd of the Army.

And again a word I was given a long time ago returns –

Even as the kingdom of darkness is building itself up higher and stronger in the coming days, trying to achieve the statue to be worshipped in Daniel 2:32-35, its foundations will be continually crumbling, fractured and failing. In the end only the Kingdom of Adonai will remain standing.

In Luke 11:17 Yeshua knew the thoughts of the people and remarked, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls.”

In Mark 9 a man implored Yeshua to heal his son, “If You can,” to which Yeshua queried, “If You can? All things are possible to him who believes.”

May we all respond, “I do believe; help my unbelief!”
