When To Draw The Battle Line

Words In Season:

Wisdom is knowing the season to broker peace and when to unsheathe your sword and draw the battleline!
                       Soji Omole

Bearing:
"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:"
                      Isaiah 14:13

Bottomline:
A story that went viral was shared on many groups on whatsSAP about a Chinese farmer who want peace with his neighbour, over his his dog who troubles his lambs and offered his neighbour's son a lamb as a gift which made the neighbour now keep his dog in chains in a pen. And peace reigned thereafter.
The very night I shared that "fascinating" story of how peace was brokered between two neighbours, I was woken up in the middle of the night of that same day to make some amends and clarifications. If only for the sake of the few gullible. So that they don't take that story too far, even to the point of compromise to negotiate their future and yield an inch to the enemy of their destiny and he takes a yard.
Of course there is nothing wrong in brokering peace between two neighbours; provided the other neighbour is not out to dethrone you
The issue between God and satan is not a matter between two neighbours. Only one vacancy exist in Heaven and that is The Throne of God. And satan desperately wants it. And God who is called The God of peace did not even try a power sharing formula with him, much more of abdicating His throne for him, to allow peace to reign. The God of peace drew the battle line!
And we all knew the rest of the story.
1). As at that time satan is yet to raise any children for God to appease with 2 lambs or 3 to raise, so satan can keep his dogs in the kernel.
2). The issue at hand goes beyond being good neighbours! Rather it was the issue of PLACEMENT, POST AND POSITION! God should step down for him to take over;  therefore his plan was to bring God down by all means! So he can take over His throne by all means. And the rest was history......
There are men whose mission is to bring you down by all means! Either to take over your place, your post or position.
Or out of sheer envy and jealousy! Even out of sheer hatred. They just don't want things well with you. If only so they can talk and rejoice about it.
In that case, you don't appease them or their children with lambs to strike a peace accord! Rather like God did, you unsheath your sword and  draw the battle line! And of course draw a battle plan! And with the weapons of our warfare that is not carnal, settle for nothing but total and absolute victory!
- Victory by defeating them to the last man standing.
- Victory that will make you to ultimately RETAIN and MAINTAIN your PLACE IN LIFE, post or position. God did not settle for anything less. So must you. Leave the Chinese story out of this, you too should not settle for anything less! Don't settle for anything less with neighbours or members of your own house, who want to bring you down by all means. Nor from colleagues eyeing your seat and are ready to do just anything from diabolical to just anything they can think of!
Matters like this goes beyond a neighbours dog harrasing your lambs! You have better draw the battle line.
God remains God The Most High. The nearer, closer and highest any creature, visible or invisible can be to that His Throne is DOWN AT HIS FEET in worship!
Any attempt by any impostor to usurp that throne is a sacrilege. And God settled for nothing, even if it will mean fighting the first war ever in the history of heaven and earth!
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
Revelation 12:11
As we close, remember these:
- Work predates the fall.
"And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it."
Genesis 2:15
- War and victory also predates the fall.
"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven."
Revelation 12: 7 - 8
If it will mean final separation between God and His hitherto close ally, archangel and music director, so be it. And it was.
Finally, I want to introduce to you reading this a formidable and dependable ally in battle. He is called The MIGHTY in battle. Surrender your life to Him today and let go of all to Him and let Him take over your battles. All I can tell you is that He has never ever lost a battle. So He can't lose yours.
