When a nation stops believing in God it will believe and worship anything including itself, and then, after a long romp through lawlessness, hopelessness, chaos, and despair, die. Nations, cultures, and kingdoms are dying. I call it the law of kingdoms. Kingdoms come and kingdoms go.
There is only one kingdom that will never disappear and that is the Kingdom of God. According to the 2012 birthrate stats, some nations are choosing not to live. They are dying.  59 nations with 44 percent of the world’s population are contracting. By the end of the twenty-first century half, the world’s languages will disappear and up to 90 percent by the end of the twenty-second.
All of this points to the painfully slow death of secularism. Yet, in the face of mass cultural changes around the world there is an unstoppable expansion of the Kingdom of God taking place. There are a billion more Christians in the world now than there was in 1970, and the fastest growing religion is Pentecostalism. Pentecostalism is exploding! Today there are over 400 million Pentecostals, and there could be more than 1 billion by 2040. Pentecostals are known throughout the world as Holy Ghost filled prayer warriors. Prayer warriors do more than worship Christ during prayer they attack demonic strongholds in the realm of the spirit.
After the United States presidential election in 2012 some felt a breach in the Spirit. Something changed, something happened, something was different. The spiritual warfare stepped up to another level. There was a breach in the realm of the spirit that some (not all) had not discerned before. Many posted messages on Facebook about the urgent need to increase times of prayer throughout the Body of Christ. 2 Chronicles 7:14 was often quoted. This is a prayer of national repentance, turning away from sin, and looking unto God for healing of the land. More and more intercessors have told me they sense a greater spiritual opposition during prayer than they did before. They call this prayer resistance spiritual warfare. To them, national repentance and spiritual warfare will fill the breach, turn the people back to a loving God and advance the Kingdom of God.
Spiritual warfare is a spiritual battle with demonic spirits that try to stop the promises of God in a believer’s life. The prayer life of Daniel is a good example of spiritual principalities and powers trying to hinder someone’s prayers. Daniel described his warfare with principalities and powers, “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia” (Daniel 10:13). Notice this prince of the kingdom of Persia was not fighting God but opposing Daniel, who was seeking God’s will when praying.
Spiritual warriors clash with the demonic opposition against the will of God during prayer. Not everyone can understand what’s taking place during certain times of prayer so let’s try to explain the warfare another way. Unlike the warfare that Daniel described against the “prince of the kingdom of Persia,” we might just as well describe a prince over the kingdom of North American or even the West for that matter. Let’s call our modern day spiritual fight a battle against secular humanist statism. I like to call its name Leviathan (Job 41). Leviathan is a beast that submits to no one. To some, secular humanist Statism is a term that seems foreign but to those prophetic disciples of Christ it is important to understand because it best describes this fiendish Leviathan creature.
A secular humanist is someone that believes Christianity should be excluded from government and education. This is evident in the fight to keep Christianity out of public life and especially taxpayer-funded public schools. Just look at the war against Christianity during Christmas. Statism, our other term, exalts the state as a god. In statism, the people don’t work for themselves but for the benefit of the state.
BUILDERS OF BABYLON
Secularism is an ancient, rebellious, murdering spirit. Cain was the first to embrace it. He left the family of God and, through rebellion against Jehovah, built the first secular city-state. Cain’s empire was the first man ruling over man kingdom (Genesis 4:17). Cain’s offspring would be known as the builders of Babylon. Even today political statists want to build a tower far above the reach of Jehovah’s authority. As Babylon grows so too grows a spiritual vacuum within society. People do not live in a spiritual vacuum and will worship something or someone even if that something is materialism or that someone is themselves. Where a spiritual emptiness does exist in society because of secularism, as demonstrated in the former communists Soviet Empire, they simply die off. They die off because they refuse to marry, start a family and have children.
There was a time when prayer warriors battled in the spirit during prayer not fully understanding that principalities and powers released teaching spirits into the world. Today it’s different. Many prayer warriors understand that spirits teach having such ideologies as relativism, atheism, humanism, Marxism, Communism, New Age mysticism, statism, and many other anti-Christ teachings. There has been an ever-increasing spiritual war over North America and the Western world because of these many teachings. Some call the opposition a cultural war. Discerning Christians know it’s a spiritual war in the heavens against the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
The adherents of secularism are dressed in full battle array against the Kingdom of God. Some of these warriors are network media apologists, college professors, entertainers, politicians, bankers, ‘policy makers’, United Nations representatives, and Keynesian economists. They hate, no, they detest Christianity. Christianity is not just a different worldview or an idea, Christianity is a model of faith in a supernatural God. Secularism in contrast looks to the god of self and worships its own thoughts, imaginations, and ideas. A secular humanist can’t stand the idea that man is separated from a loving God because of sin. They think that man can save himself and needs no god for help. Nevertheless, the Bible decrees “The wages of sin is death.”
No matter ones world view, every man faces his own mortality. To the Christian there is the hope of the resurrection but to the secularists there is no hope of life after death. We live in a world that desperately needs Christ. It’s a cauldron of chaos and warfare with Western secular humanism, Asian anomy, and the ‘death cult’ of radical Islam. Prophets, intercessors, and Remnant believers have jarred with the demonic power of secular humanism many times. Often it manifests as an anti-Christ spirit. Again, secularism is not just a different world view from Christianity but a demonic murdering spirit manifesting itself on the world stage as a clash of kingdoms.
A CLASH OF KINGDOMS
According to Samuel Huntington's 1993 essay, The Clash of Civilizations, “world politics is entering a new phase in which the great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of international conflict will be cultural.” In other words, what Huntington is pointing out is a clash of kingdoms. He uses the terms world politics and cultural conflict. The definition of politics is governing the affairs of men. There is no greater governor that the Creator, thus the clash. As already said, this confirms the spiritual warfare for dominion, kingdom against kingdom and culture against culture. For the Christian there is no escaping this warfare but the good news is that all enemies of Christ, including this one, will be subdued by the power of the Holy Spirit. Scripture declares,
“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him that God may be all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:24-28).
Huntington continues by defining the spiritual warfare as a spread of anti-Christ values. “Civilizations—the highest cultural groupings of people—are differentiated from each other by religion, history, language and tradition. In the resulting era of cultural conflict that is emerging, the United States must forge alliances with similar cultures and spread its values wherever possible.” Notice again the goal, “spread its values wherever possible.” The problem with this is that American values are no longer Christian but the values of secular humanist statists.
AN HISTORICAL EXPANSION
It would appear that secularism is winning but it isn’t. Christianity is expanding at an historical rate. St. Mark penned of Jesus preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:14-15). This is different than preaching the doctrine of the Cross because the Gospel of the Kingdom preaches Kingdom values, benefits, sanctions, and above all, Kingdom rule. Jesus is the King of kings and the Ruler of rulers. I explained this in detail in my book “Destined for Dominion.” All of these point to a lifestyle, that lifestyle is saturated with the culture of the Kingdom of God. Within the culture of the Kingdom of God are values, these values Christians around the world share with each other. In fact, Christian values are woven into the very fabric of Christianity based on a loving Father that sent his only begotten son into this world to redeem mankind from sin. It is Christ, his kingdom and his values that are rejected by secular humanists and statists but embraced by His disciples.
Once you are born again through the redemptive power of the blood of Christ you enter a spiritual Kingdom, that kingdom is the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is not out there, over yonder, or on the other side of Pluto. No, the Kingdom of God is within you. Herein lies the mystery of the clash of kingdoms, the warfare is not about you it’s about Christ and his rightful place as king. Scripture declares, “The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 24:1). For Christ’ kingdom there shall be no end. It is forever expanding, growing, and increasing. In other words, it will outlive and overtake all the kingdoms of this world.
WHEN NATIONS VANISH
The future of secular humanism is chaos, despair and death. Nations, cultures, and languages are dying. Again, half of the world’s languages will disappear by the end of the twenty-first century and up to 90 percent by the end of the twenty-second century.  The declining birthrate stats prove that nations are not reproducing themselves. The statistics indicate that some nations are not having enough children to maintain their cultures. Are they not able to have children, aborting their children, not willing to have children, or just given up on the future? According to David P. Goldman, columnists at Asia Times Online and author of, “It’s Not the End of the World,” “Cultures that have lost the hope of immortality also lose the will to live.” Unlike secularists that are dead in their trespasses and sin, Christians look to the promise of the future and life after death.  This means that people of faith are more apt to marry and have children. As already said, nations, cultures and kingdoms are choosing not to live. The promise of fruitfulness belongs to the partakers of God’s covenant.Scripture declares,
“Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee” (Deuteronomy 7:12-15).
THE UNSTOPPABLE KINGDOM
Overpopulation is often touted in media but it appears that overpopulation may not be the issue. According to Philip Longman, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation and author of The Empty Cradle: How Falling Birthrates Threaten World Prosperity and What To Do About It”, 59 nations representing 44 percent of the world’s population are headed for population contraction. Longman also makes the shocking statement that the decrease in world population sets up “the possibility of a fundamentalist revival due to the decline of secular fertility.” Even secularists understand their kingdoms are dying. To the statists’ policy makers, a “fundamentalist revival” means that faith in Christ forces itself back onto the national political stage of world politics.
There is no question that Christianity is spreading throughout the world like wildfire. “There are nearly a billion more Christians in the world today than in 1970, including a hundred million Chinese, most of whom adhere to the house-church movement on the American evangelical model. Denominations of American origin, notably Pentecostals, led the evangelization of a quarter of a billion Africans in the past generation. There are nearly 100 million additional Latin American Christians, of whom perhaps 40 million belong to Pentecostal or other Protestant denominations centered in the United States.”
NEW BOOK by Jonas Clark: Take a look in the eStore.
Philip Jenkins of Pennsylvania State University thinks we are on the verge of a “transformational religious shift.” He observes, “Though Pentecostalism emerged as a movement only at the start of the twentieth century, chiefly in North America, Pentecostals today are at least 400 million strong and heavily concentrated in the global South (Africa, Asia, and Latin America). By 2040 or so there could be as many as a billion.”  Pentecostalism is the fastest growing religious movement in the world. To be Pentecostal means that you are baptized by the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues and prophecy.  (The Apostle Paul asked, “Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?)
Secularism cannot win and Leviathan will be defeated. Jesus said, “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail.” The Kingdom of God is expanding. The bottom line is this: the Kingdom of God is like leaven, one of the seven parables of the Kingdom of God, it’s unstoppable! Be encouraged, the law of kingdoms is in full manifestation.

 A rate of two children per woman is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total numbers. Rates above two children indicate populations growing in size and whose median age is declining. Rates below two children indicate populations decreasing in size and growing older. Global fertility rates are in general decline and this trend is most pronounced in industrialized countries, especially Western Europe, where populations are projected to decline dramatically over the next 50 years.
 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
 “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:7)
 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:” (Romans 6:4-5)
 “He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.”(Acts 19:2-6)
