Wars and Rumors of Wars

Our Lord Jesus taught us that we could expect an ongoing condition of instability until He returned (Matthew 24:6; Mark 12:7). Every now and then it seems, we need to be reminded by circumstances that "this world is not our home!" The news is full of contrasting opinions of the reasons and purposes of the terrible issues being played out in the Middle East, and the leaders of the world governments are planning and plotting to meet their various agendas.

Nations "rage" and the Lord "laughs"

Psalm 2 is a rather important perspective for God's people to keep in their minds. The physical circumstances often seem rather bleak, and the "bad guys" seem to have it their way much of the time (Psalm 73), but we are continually reminded that their apparent success should not trouble us (Psalm 37:1; Proverbs 3:31-34; etc.), for "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision" (Psalm 2:4).

God's spiritual warfare!

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (II Corinthians 10:3-4).

This verse is a source of encouragement for the ministry of ICR. We particularly see ourselves as fighting the "imaginations" and the "strong holds" of those who would dare to set themselves against the authority of Scripture and the evidence of the Creator and His creation. The Western world has embraced the anti-God, and anti-gospel message of Evolutionary Naturalism as its religion. ICR is waging spiritual warfare against that terrible lie.

Help us "capture every thought"

The battle is very different and very specialized in our world today. God has brought specialized "warriors" to ICR to engage the enemy. We cannot "fight" without your financial support and your intercessory prayer.
