Wow, did The Scribbler just make a prophecy? Am I a prophetess? Nah. War is always coming, and further, there is always war currently waging, we in the U.S. are unfortunately short sighted when it comes to killing and conflict. It is happening every single day in countries that may seem distant to us, but because it is our fellow humans, it isn’t distant at all. Don’t believe me that there are wars ongoing? Use your search engine of choice and check it out; search for current wars.
There are those in the U.S. who don’t seem to realize that war is inevitable. They don’t know the news, except for what is fed to us by the mainstream U.S. media. They don’t see what is going on with Russia, the Ukraine, in the Mideast, etc… War, esp. World War, belongs only in the history book to their way of thinking, or on the Silver Screen. We have become a nation that doesn’t contemplate the inevitable and that is dangerous and sad.
Proverbs 24:5 A wise man is strong, And a man of knowledge increases power. 6 For by wise guidance you will wage war, And in abundance of counselors there is victory.
Wisdom, knowledge, and wise counselors can only be had if we admit that there is a need to be strong, powerful, and have the ability to wage war and come out victorious. We need strong and wise military minds and that takes top-notch military schooling and training. It also takes us, as a culture, saying that being a Godly warrior can be a calling. The Lord willing may they never see battle, but they are a need. There is a time for war, and a time for righteous anger.
One last point; if you are a current service man or woman, or have served this country in the past, OR are family to a service man or woman; Thank You for your service. For the rest of us, we need to be aware of the changes to the military in this country, the lack of funding, and the lack of respect from certain segments of our own government.
