We were in the wilderness for 40 years being prepped for war. Why, then, are we surprised when battles come? We must fight for what is ours, for what has been promised to us. And we must win! The Kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force. The promised land--these precious lives we've been given--isn't a bed of roses. The promised land is not synonymous with the "lap of luxury". No! it is a place where we fight and struggle to gain new ground--and we do! We conquer, then we move on to the next conquest. We gain more ground. We constantly fight and win, fight and win, fight and win... We are victorious warriors, fighting for a King in a Kingdom. This Kingdom suffers violence, but we--the violent--take back its stolen territories by force. We've been prepared; now it's time for war!
