Inoculation Day

As Inauguration Day unfolds and we face a possible future of vile evil from our government leaders, the occasion should usher in Inoculation Day for believers in Jesus the Messiah.

That is, we need to inoculate ourselves against the anti-Christian bigotry, anti-Semitism, pro-abortion, anti-family, pro-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and laws and regulations about to befall America.

The 1st and 2nd Amendments will be under assault worse than ever and we could all list myriad other actions that will test our spiritual and physical lives.

And yet God offers us a free vaccine—an inoculation—against this avalanche of dread: His Word and our faith. Combine the two (and we must) and immerse ourselves in Scripture (and we must) and we will be able to overcome the next few months and years.

Forget the Word and relinquish our faith and we will surely perish.

The book of Nahum prophesied what was to happen to Israel and what I think we in America can expect soon and very soon. For God was an angry God then and we can anticipate America’s actions in 2021 to incite the same response. Portions to Nahum 2 and 3 tell the story:

“The one who scatters has come against you…

“Woe to the bloody city, completely full of lies and pillage…

“They stumble over the dead bodies! All because of the many harlotries of the harlot…

“ ‘Behold, I am against you,’ declares the Lord of hosts, “and I will lift up your skirts over your face and show the nations your nakedness and the kingdoms your disgrace…

“I will throw filth on you and make you vile and set you up as a spectacle.” The body of Christ must be prepared for this and we can because we overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Nahum does encourage God’s people with a sentence we should all hold dear: “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knows those who take refuge in
