2 Timothy 4:7-8
The right time to Fight; means to engage in a struggle against a perceived enemy or enemies either defensively or offensively.
Most human beings, irrespective of who they are, what they know, where they have been, and their level of spiritual maturity, have something they would fight for. We fight for our fundamental human rights, we fight for possessions, we fight for our family, we fight for our job. We are sensitive to criticism and insults, and sometimes we even fight for things we don’t really own. If you check the Scriptures, you will discover that the only fight you are called into is the fight of faith. The Bible calls it a “good” fight, and that’s because you are on the winning side. The Lord Jesus overcame the devil, the world, and its systems. All that’s left for you to do as a Christian is to grasp all that He accomplished in your behalf. In the fight of faith, you believe what the Lord has given you and hold on to it, no matter what your human senses perceive. You stand on God’s Word and refuse to be shaken by contrary winds. It’s not the time to lament about how you feel or what you are going through in your circumstances; rather, it is time to stick with God’s testimony about you.

The question is, should a true Christian fight for anything? And if you were to write a list of things worth fighting for, what would that list include? In this respect, 1Timothy 6:12 says: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. Conflicts come in different categories. Though we have the right to self defence, Christian are not called to take up arms against their offensive or aggressive neighbours because our weapon is not physical. However, God is under attack in today’s world because His creative order, His principles and commandments are being maliciously attacked by heretics. Christians do not have any choice in this matter; we do not have the luxury of a personal decision on this one. In reality, the battle of the heretics and false prophets is raging right now and our Commander in Chief, the Lord of hosts, has commanded us to fight, and we must fight. So now is the right time to fight.
