“In these grim times, it may seem unreal to speak of the prospects of a new Christian order. But if Christianity is not suited to hard times, Christians have no right to speak at all. To build a Christian order we do not need vast economic resources or exceptionally prosperous times. Such work is better done in the spirit of Nehemiah and his companions who rebuilt the ruined walls of Jerusalem without resources and in constant danger, working with one hand and holding the sword in the other.”
The Judgment of the Nations
We see that even though much of the visible Church is opposed to Christendom so that we have a fifth column within and even though the enemies without are likewise adamantly opposed to rebuilding Christendom, the rebuilding of Christendom is inevitable unless one doesn’t believe that Christ will ever return or unless one believes that the worse things get the better they get since the worse things get means that Jesus is going to come and rescue us like the 7th cavalry coming to rescue a Western Ho wagon train surrounded by angry injuns.
We are looking at this and even though the opposition may seem overwhelming we must remember Gideon’s reduction, Elijah’s solo work against the great numbers of enemies, Elisha’s unseeing servant, Abraham’s small troop defeating the armies of the 4 Kings, David overwhelming Goliath, the handful of Christians overturning the Empire of Rome with the Christian faith, the ostrich winged cavalry of John Sobieski, against the far superior numbers of the Muslim Ottomans, or the work of Jean de la Valette on the island of Malta against the hordes of Suleiman the Magnificent. Numbers are irrelevant because Christ intends to continue to make His enemies His footstool.
Christendom… Christian civilization will be rebuilt no matter the obstacles no matter Nehemiah’s enemies, no matter the Cultural Marxists, no matter the Trannies reading at the Drag Queen Reading Hour, no matter the Soy Boy Clergy, no matter the side-B sodomites, no matter the R2K Church termite infestation, no matter the impressive opposition of Talmudism — no matter whatever you might name. Because we have already won our victory is inevitable.
We have this Great Commission to disciple the nations. The very commission itself implies that Nations can be Christian and so can have a Christian civilization. What else are we to conclude if all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Christ so that He might conquer all His enemies and bring all nations under His dominion? (cmp. Ps. 2:8, 110:1-3)
Instead of this simple and clear reasoning what we get from our “wise men” is that it is wrong to talk about rebuilding Christendom. This flies square in the face of Christ’s promise that He would be with the Church till the end of the age. Via the presence of Christ by His Spirit we can have confidence that the Kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ and that before His return. Nations will be ruled by God’s Law-Word in civil affairs. Magistrates will own Christ and so rule by God’s revelation. And all this by the Church preaching Christ and Him crucified and then making disciples.
