From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4

from whence come wars…………………THE FLESH
no war of the carnal flesh is justified……………….
and every war, every war ever fought for whatever cause , it matters not,
was done so from LUST, to obtain something they didn’t have.
TEST THAT………and you will see it is truth.
OUR KINGDOM is NOT OF THIS WORLD…….
but anyone who fights for the worlds kingdom and calls it whatever,
its NOT OF GOD.
and I am not condemning anyone,
way too many falsehoods out there, by way too many men NOT of GOD.
all be blessed. and lift up hands unto OUR LORD,
for his mercies upon us,
and may many more come into the fold of our LORD.
love and pray for your enemies,
BUT HEED NOT an ounce of their false words or ideas.
Just read that bible and follow our LORD. amen.

“Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save a life or to kill?” Mark 3:4
High Priests, Pharisees, Scribes, Herodians, Caesar, Pilate, and king Herod, desire to kill all of their enemies. That would be Jesus Christ, that would be us. They are enraged that we do not obey their will, but the will of our Father. They are enraged that we do not serve them as kings but instead serve Christ Jesus our King. They are enraged that we do not consider ourselves members of their kingdoms, but only members of the Kingdom of God.
Here we are in the Sabbath rest of Jesus Christ our Lord. But instead of joyfully entering in themselves, the faux-religious and the political are enraged that Jesus does good and cares for people and heals them. These religious men, loyal to the religious system and these political men, loyal to the political system, they do harm, they do kill, and they do evil. They desire to destroy anyone who does not participate in their personal earthly kingdom building. They plot to kill anyone who gets in their way or makes them look bad.
Now Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been enemies with each other. Luke23:12
The Pharisees went out and immediately began conspiring with the Herodians against Him, as to how they might destroy(kill) Him. Mark3:6
But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy(kill) Him. Matt12:14
“If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.” Jn11:48
Pharisees & Chief Priests were also of the SPIRIT OF POLITICS, patriotism, earthly kingdoms, killing and war and death.
-Politics & patriotism: they had deals with the Roman Government System, worked with them in compromise, for their benefit, so they could keep their status quo.
-Earthly kingdoms: worried that they would lose theirs: “they’ll come and take away our place and our nation”.
-Killing & war: determined to kill anyone who embarrassed them or got in the way of their plans and desires to rule.
-Death: plotted to have Jesus* killed.
do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? James4:4
SPIRIT OF POLITICS, patriotism, earthly kingdoms, killing and war and death.
It is very strong spirit in Churchianity.
It is an evil spirit, a stronghold.
But we preach Jesus Christ, we preach the Kingdom of God, which is *not of this world*. We preach King Jesus. We preach that we are transferred from the kingdom of this world to HIS Kingdom. We preach loyalty and allegiance to King Jesus alone. We preach peace with God through Jesus Christ the Lord. We preach repentance and faith and obedience to Him. We preach love and healing and life and hope and mercy.
