God has never been in actual fight. He has been opposed, but in the sense of a fight including an uncertainty of outcome, God knows nothing of the sort. In the Old Testament, a frequent foe of Israel was the Philistines. These barbarian pagans had adopted as their national deity a demonic god called Dagon. In a season wherein God was chastising Israel for sin, He allowed the Philistines to win a victory that resulted in them thinking that Dagon was more powerful than Yahweh. In an incredibly short time, Yahweh removed all doubt and made an example of Dagon and his followers. The story is exhilarating.
In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff reminds the Church that idols and demonic gods of our own culture sometimes deceive their worshipers to think the God of the Christian was retired and fled away. This is the season wherein we will see Jesus - Yahweh in human flesh! - put down modern idols just like His Father did in the days of Dagon.
