Purpose: That God might have all the glory and that we as men might see what God see’s.
Here we are again approaching Memorial Day. We do not want to forget the great sacrifice that was made by our men and women who gave the ultimate price for this nation’s freedom. Precious Sons and Daughters of Families that gave their life for something very precious, the heart beat of America, our Liberty and God’s Inalienable Rights which are define in the “Declaration of Independence” Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Each person should take the time and ask themselves Seriously what does this mean and how should this impact my life? If our citizens will not mediate and ask these questions, then there is a serious disconnect in our public school education program in the past 50 plus years. Every day seems to bring forth more evidence of this loss of wisdom to our Nation.
The cost of these precious young people lives is the result of an enemy. Does our Nation today know who the enemy is? I ask myself as a Christian, one who claims that Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life and that No Person can come unto the Father but by the Son of God, Jesus the Christ.
Therefore,What is a Just War? Many Nations go to War for many reasons. But which Reason is Just before our Creator, since man was created in the image of God. We are more than just a species that evolved over millions of years. The Great Lie of Evolution which is preach as the truth from the pulpits of our public Educational Institutes.
What does the Holy Bible say about Man? Remember that these precious souls are the Collateral Damage of the outcome of War that we have become accustom to.
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Isaiah 42:5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
Isa 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
Man is more precious than fine gold, but the LORD will execute judgment on those who refused the Gift of God of being reconcile to God through Jesus Christ. Only Christ has the authority to pardon sin.
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
To have a Just War, First, the Nation must be a Nation of Truth and Justice before the eyes of others Nations. The Leaders must be men and women of truth and be an example for Justice to all, without hypocrisy. Let us see an example of truth from the Scriptures on this principal.
Lu 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Lu 6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
Lu 6:41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Lu 6:42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
Lu 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Lu 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Lu 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Lu 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Lu 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
Lu 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Lu 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
This is Perfect Wisdom from Above and is Good for all the Families of this earth. Therefore this Wisdom exercised by the leaders of this world can bless their Nations.
Joh 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
Joh 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Joh 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
Joh 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
This all comes back to every person individually. Do I believe what Jesus said or do I have an evil heart of unbelief ? For some reason those who Lead our Nation with hold this information from its citizens! Our Public Education is guilty of this great sin of turning its people from knowing the truth and turning away from the True God unto to falsehood! I am sorry if this offend you but I would want to know the truth that if I was in a building that is burning down, then be told that is his opinion. A person can believe what ever they want here in America, but that does not change the Truth.
Psalm 9:17 The wicke d shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Ps 9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Ps 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah

Isa 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
Isa 29:11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
Isa 29:12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Isa 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Isa 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Isa 29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
I Pray that the Word of God is reaching deep into your soul and convicting you of the damage of sin in your life and how it not only affects you but those around you. This is the same for the Leaders of our Nation who transgress the law of God and the people of the Nation also reap the consequences of their sins.
Now lets us examine some stories recorded in the Holy Bible that reveals this truth!
Jg 2:10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.
Jg 2:11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:
Jg 2:12 And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger.
Jg 2:13 And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.
Jg 2:14 And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.
1Ch 5:24 And these were the heads of the house of their fathers, even Epher, and Ishi, and Eliel, and Azriel, and Jeremiah, and Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty men of valour, famous men, and heads of the house of their fathers.
1Ch 5:25 And they transgressed against the God of their fathers, and went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom God destroyed before them.
1Ch 5:26 And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.
Second, the Nation must have an enemy, not just a Nation that might have a different opinion. Then what definition should we give for an enemy? We can look at the definition of the Dictionary. I want us to examine what God says in his Holy Bible that we might get a clearer picture, if the LORD might give us Understanding into this Great Truth.
Enemy: 1828 Webster Dictionary

1Co 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
The last enemy that will be destroyed is death and no man but Christ Jesus will do this.
We started by asking the question of Just War. Having examined the Scriptures, my hope is that you will believe what God’s Word says by faith. The Holy Spirit of God will always convict the soul of sin, righteousness and of judgment.
Joh 16:7 ¶ Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
A Just Nation will have a testimony that bears fruit of Truth, Justice and Judgment for all men. They will believe that they are accountable to God, the Creator of all things and that all men are created equal. Now can we find scripture to support a Just Nation?
Ex 14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
Ex 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
Moses as the leader of this Nation was a man that fear God more than men.

1Sa 17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
1Sa 17:46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
1Sa 17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.
Any Nation that fights against Israel cannot be a Just Nation because they are fighting against God.
His people are still sinners and need to be saved. The LORD GOD love for the people of Israel is longsuffering and with great mercy.
2 Kings 13:23 And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.

Ps 9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Ps 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
A Just Nation will still have flaws because of humans but will Trust in that perfect weight and measure which is the precepts and principals founded in the Word of God, which has the final authority in all matters. Our founding fathers of our Great Nation embraced this truth and we have reap blessings by abiding in this Truth.
Deuteronomy 25:15 But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Isa 5:1 ¶ Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
Isa 5:2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
Isa 5:3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
Isa 5:4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
Isa 5:5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
Isa 5:6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

Ec 9:13 ¶ This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:
Ec 9:14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
Ec 9:15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.
Ec 9:16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
Ec 9:17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
Ec 9:18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
Lu 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

Lu 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Lu 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Lu 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
I pray that the Word of God will accomplish that which it was sent to do. God’s will is that all people might be Saved from the wrath of God to come and be Justified in his sight by the free Gift of Life that is only to those who believed upon his only begotten Son, Jesus of Nazareth, The Son of God. The Lord Jesus Christ.
1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Re 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

No more Wars but a Peace that only those who been born again into the Family of God.
Please consider what God has said. All the precious souls of this earth will answer to God for their sin. Only Christ alone can pardon our sins and save whosoever will believe on him for Salvation. Then Christ will make them a new person, and a Child of God.
