The Greatest War Ever Waged
©2012 Stan Hallett
The greatest war that was ever fought, or ever will be fought, having the greatest consequence, was not World War II that claimed somewhere between an estimated 40 and 72 million lives.
It won’t be the war that is yet to come that will claim one third of mankind. The greatest war that was ever waged, or ever will be waged where man is concerned, is the war that is waged in your mind.
It is a spiritual battleground where only you will be the victim or the victor, no one else. The consequences are greater than any mortal life can fathom, and they are eternal. The decision that you make, perhaps even this day, and the side you choose will determine your greatest joy, or your greatest torment for all of eternity.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” - Matthew 10:28
”And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.“ – Luke 12:4,5
Every man and woman that has ever been killed in a war, even enduring great torment in their flesh, still can rise up into eternal life, if they were right with God unto the death. That world war, that earthly battle, that bodily torment and death will just be a blink in time, something that will not matter in eternity.
The good news is you have control over the greatest battle ever fought in all eternity. You decide if you will win, or lose by the very choice you make. You are either a slave to satan or a servant of God. There is no other choice, and no middle ground to be had. Many think they are neutral, but sadly, they have already made their choice.
“Choose you this day whom ye will serve.” - Joshua 24:15
