The Christian Cross is not a symbol of defeat.
It is not a symbol of a pathetic man.
It is not a symbol of humiliation.
The Cross is a symbol of defiance.
It says, “bring it.”
It says, we mock your tortures.
We defy your threats.
We treat your punishment as weakness.
What you meant for shame we hold in mockery — bring it!
We will overcome you because greater is He who is within us that he who is in the world.
The Cross will defeat atheism because we have something worth dying for.
Modern society has nothing — it just distracts from a soul-less and empty existence.
It is not atheism that will rescue us from the Moslem because the secularist has nothing worth dying for.
We Christians will fight because this lamp of the Gospel shall not be extinguished from now until eternity. We will fight for it.
This is the whole Gospel — not just personal salvation but Christian nations within which Christianity can flourish, missionaries sent forth, and the light of an example for the nations to emulate. Entire nations/blood lines will be converted. Jesus Christ is Lord over all — not just a man’s inner conscience. He has a plan for nations based upon His Law.
“And many peoples shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and Jehovah’s word from Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 2:3)
We are not at the end of history. The best is yet to come.
