The world is getting smaller, every evil act is brought to light and broadcast for all to see. The Lord is illuminating evil, showing it to us so that we may pray against it, speak out against it and, yes, even fight against it. Communications have become pervasive to show evil so that we may combat it with the Word of the Lord.

Yes, God is here, now. His Spirit resides in the hearts of every Christian and His voice cries out for mercy and justice. Can you hear Jesus crying in night? Is His compassion for humanity not evident? Take a stand against evil, speak Jesus into the atrocities, the hate and the divisions in this world. But, first, cover yourselves with the armor of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Ephesians 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
Ephesians 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Ephesians 6:16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
