As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.
And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute.
Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land. Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out. (Jos 15:63, 16:10, 17:12-13)
Those that oppose GOD, many not even realizing the war they are in, are not to be left thinking there is a neutral position. Every person is born a sinner, and therefore the enemy of GOD, but GOD gave Himself for our sins, that we might be reconciled to GOD, and no more strangers and enemies, but adopted into the family of faith, and restored to a right relationship to GOD through repentance and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. GOD loves all, even His enemies, because He is our Creator, and is not willing that any should depart this world without Him and be destined to a devil's Hell. We are not to compromise with those who are enemies of GOD or with their doctrine, but proclaim the Truth in love and stand strong in the Lord, with the victory that He has already won.
He wants His people to share Him with all we meet, in missions, ministry, and discipleship with the Good News of Salvation and the Word of reconciliation. We are His ambassadors, called to minister to those around us who are hurting and in need, that they may come to know Him through us. We are His disciples, commanded to disciple one another in the Word of GOD that we may all grow into the full measure of Him, conformed to the image of His Son. We are His witnesses, commissioned to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of GOD to this lost and dying world, and as we go, telling all who will hear of forgiveness of sin through repentance, and reconciliation with GOD through faith in Him and Him alone that those who believe might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
