Liberty Lost Is Never Regained

Liberty-Lost

American Christians by and large apparently cannot read the signs of the times.  Tribulation is at our door and a lukewarm church is blind and infected with a fatal case of Normalcy Bias.

The following essay is from a sermon I had given on the July 4th weekend.  It is a very long read, as it was a 90 minute sermon but it is what the lukewarm church in America needs to hear at such a time as this.

***

This is not going to be pleasant message and oftentimes the truth is not pleasant. I make no apology for it.

I did not feel like celebrating the 4th of July.  Instead I grieved, in anger and bitterness.  I’ve known for awhile now in my spirit that America as we knew her is over, and now given the last few weeks, a few more are beginning to see what I have warned about for years.

Liberty has been lost brethren.  Tyranny and persecution are now our future, indeed it is here – and we brethren, have grown comfortable with it. America has become an unfaithful and wicked nation that has turned it’s back on God to go after lusts of the flesh and the mind.  It has done what not even the pagan Romans had dared to do.  NO NATION on earth, not even Sodom and Gomorrah CHANGED the institution of marriage into a perversion of marrying two men or two women to engage in sanctioned homosexuality as a LEGAL RIGHT and have given it legal supremacy.

This nation has thrown liberty, which was the gift from God, back into His face, and spit on Him saying “We do not want to be reminded of You”.   Meanwhile the vast majority of Christians in this nation, have either sat on our hands in indifference and apathy OR joined hands with the homosexual agenda out of either agreement with the agenda or fear of what the mob will do in concert with the government for daring to oppose it.

Given what has transpired of late including the recent rulings that have come down from the high court – how can any of us be in a celebratory rule and lie to ourselves that we are free??  Are we unable to read the signs of the times?  Do we not know what that ruling and the several other ridiculous rulings from the High Court mean for us?

July 4th was not a time to celebrate, but to call to memory the righteous indignation of our forefathers at the lawless actions of tyrants. It should have been a time to remember the fact that though they did not want war – no sane man wants war – our forbears were willing to have war if that was what it was going to take to remain a free, self-governing people, sovereign under Almighty God.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” – The Declaration of Independence

Sadly, Christians in this nation have allowed themselves to become illiterate of both the bible and history by thinking that there is nothing a Christian should be willing to fight against or die for.  Brethren will not like what I have to say in this message.  I am raining on their parade, letting the air out of their balloons.  Like most Americans they do not want to grieve or be reminded of our national wickedness that impels us to mourn what trust we have betrayed; what principles and laws we have allowed to be trampled and the blood of patriots that we have chosen to ignore.

It is a time to ask ourselves, and each other: What exactly are we willing to do to resist wickedness and tyranny?  Are you getting used to this ‘new normal’?  Are you resting your hope on the next presidential messiah to save us?

Well I got news for you: freedom as you knew it is over.  Life as you knew it is OVER.  Look at how much we have been transformed into in just a few years.  Look at what we have grown comfortable into accepting as our new normal! It’s 1936 and a whole nation is seig heiling fundamental transformation while being set against one another for the sake of those in power.  But no one likes negativity – I am told.  No one wants to hear doom and gloom.  If that is the case, then this people are not interested in hearing the truth.  This people are become the epitome of

Isaiah 30:9-10:

For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the LORD; Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”; And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions.

Some have said to me ‘all this woe and tribulation that is coming has to happen so let’s just sit on our hands and watch what is about to unfold upon us – God will spare us pain and be our Rock and shield’.  How utterly naive. As if they are going to be sitting in recliners munching on popcorn and sipping soda as if the collapse of the country is going to be a pay-per-view event! Such people are not going to endure and tolerate watching the amount of suffering and horror that is going to come upon us.

I am here to tell you that while I can accept the fact that this nation is toast – what I was shown about myself in 2012 was a warning message that some Christian brethren understood I needed to get across to the church at large.  The message was that we American Christians are not ready to endure and suffer what brethren in the third world suffer every single day.  Having lived in a third world slum among persecuted Christians in 2012, watching those you love suffer seemingly without end or relief, was more than I was able to bear.  I have to say that when God turns His back on this nation to allow His righteous judgment of our consequences be meted out – it will test your faith to it’s breaking point and I daresay the vast majority of Christians in this nation are going to buckle and fold.  Heck – many are already buckling and folding and the real pain has not even come yet except upon a few!

Sadly, the church in America is not interested in hearing about what God is doing overseas, or what I learned about persecution.  They have a new fellowship hall and coffee shop to construct for their youth ministry.  They only want to hear positiveness and reinforced messages pertaining to health and prosperity.  Some have said they do not want funds being diverted from ‘their great work of God’ to go to things they are not in charge or have control of. Matthew 28:19-20 is limited to preaching to other Christians about how they are wrong in this practice or that doctrine rather than going into nations where the Name of Christ is relatively unknown.  They are too busy wanting to argue minute nuances of doctrine rather than notice that an entire society is about to collapse into ruin around them.

One of my personal passions in life before I was called to Mission work was attempting to talk about God’s Role in Our Founding and what real Liberty was as it was intended by our Founders.   But brethren, this people that we call our countrymen today HAVE NO CLUE WHAT REAL LIBERTY actually is. The definition of liberty in today’s America is the exact opposite of the definition that our Forbears intended for us.

Recently, five justices in black robes ignored God and Natural Law’s factual principles of life and told everyone that ordaining Homosexuality as a RIGHT was an essential liberty. The avalanche of totalitarian celebration clang from sea to sea.

The White House, supposedly representing the American government was bathed in colors not of the American flag but of a flag representing the celebration of what the Bible calls an ABOMINATION.  Homosexuals use the rainbow, the very sign of God’s covenant and mercy in the face of judgment, to desecrate His name, and flaunt evil, and it became a desecration covering the White House.   The “People’s House” at 1600 Pennsylvania was bathed in colors of the Homosexual flag to give Christians the middle finger.

Where is the collective outrage of the Faith in this country?  *Crickets* Collective outrage?  No.  Some griping and complaining in op-eds and on some talk radio – but outside of that – *crickets*.

A newfound Constitutional Right has been established in America ladies and gentlemen; the right for a man to put his penis in another man’s rectum, or two women to play with themselves and have the state declare that marriage. The ruling had NOTHING TO DO WITH RIGHTS if you read the dissentsIt was a political edict of ideologues who believe in their “supremacy” over God and us ‘little people‘ is divine.  They believe they are wiser than God who created the institution of marriage between a man and a woman and have instead decreed their abominable BEHAVIOR to be an inalienable RIGHT and SUPERIOR to God’s.

And now, the calls are already clamoring for people to have the liberty to engage in Polygamy, pedophelia Legalized incest and even beastiality.  The pandora’s box of liberty to do as your loins and imagination dictate – is now wide open. The country is falling over itself to celebrate and applaud deviant sexual acts and make it an unassailable institution just like Abortion.

 Isaiah 3:8-13

For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen,  Because their speech and their actions are against the LORD, To rebel against His glorious presence. The expression of their faces bears witness against them, And they display their sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them!  For they have brought evil on themselves. Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, For what he deserves will be done to him. O My people! Their oppressors are children, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray  And confuse the direction of your paths. The LORD arises to contend, And stands to judge the people.

Anthony Kennedy and SCOTUS have led the nation astray and have made wicked and crooked paths THE LAW of the land while DENOUNCING the Law of God. The Court has suggested in the majority opinion that God-ordained marriage “creates a climate of intimidation and offense” that deprived homosexuals of their rights.   This is “liberty” they say.  The “liberty to “love” whom and what they choose.

Liberty apart from God’s moral code brings on horrors.  Horrors like those experienced during the French Revolution.  While Robspierre was shouting “Liberty!” they were beheading everyone that was accused of having profited under the monarchy and who refused to bow down to the newfound ‘secular’ morality that swept France in the late 1700s.  Brethren, this is where we are headed in America.

Freedom is Slavery – War is Peace – Ignorance Is Strength wrote George Orwell in his novel 1984.  That upside down dystopian universe is now ours in the age of Obama. Tyranny is now said to be Liberty, and it’s no wonder considering calling tyranny liberty is nothing new:

“We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names—liberty and tyranny.” – Abraham Lincoln – April 18th, 1864.

Liberty for most Americans today means the freedom to have sex with whom they please, whenever they please.  Freedom means cable TV and beer and entertainments.  Freedom for some means a welfare check, or their perceived right to your wealth and to dismantle your evil ‘white privilege’.  What freedom means in todays America, is the freedom from shame, the freedom from guilt, the freedom from responsibility and especially the freedom FROM God and morality.  Unless of course you are white and Christian, then we are expected to be ashamed, guilty and bear responsibility for all the perceived woes our culture and our God have inflicted upon the nation.

I have been admonished that we should not waste time trying to reason with the wicked, that such is casting pearls before swine.  It was given as a justification to shut the doors and close the blinds of your church and “let the world fall”.  The problem with this line of thinking is in so doing we are ignoring the Devil’s devices.  You are not going to be safe and secure in your church.  The fact is that sin will never leave you alone.  Evil always demands equality and accommodation, and when it is given and accorded – evil CONQUERS and DOMINATES.  This is true of a soul as it is a society.

The refusal to confront evil and accommodate the liberty of a people to engage in wickedness and evil is bringing tyranny to those who stand for righteousness.  We now currently live in a country where our beliefs and faith are INCOMPATIBLE with the mainstream of a society that views our faith in our God as tyranny, as a “Christian taliban” and worse.  Freedom as we might define it is not the same as the rest of the country defines it. If you oppose homosexual marriage and “gay Rights, you will be declared a tyrant – even if you are not engaged in punishing those practicing it.  Those of us who revere the bible are going to experience the tyranny of those who will force us to accept their behavior upon us.  We declare our liberty to follow the scriptures unmolested and they declare their liberty from God to follow their lusts for the purpose of molesting us.

This is not a war on marriage, but a war on a way of life itself. A war to bring an entire society to ruin.  If one dares bring fact into the mix, they are shouted down, boycotted, driven from the town square and punished severely.  It is not enough that you keep quiet and to yourself – you must accept, love and accord the behavior that contradicts your faith and principles – or you will be punished.

Case-In Point: Sweet Cakes By Melissa.  Not only was this business in Oregon shut down, the owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were fined $160,000 for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake and then the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries issued a gag order, stripping the Kleins of their First Amendment Right of both Speech and Exercise of Religion  by banning them from speaking about their faith and their convictions to anyone in public, the media or on the internet about this case and the reasons they chose not to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding.

“The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders [Aaron and Melissa Klein] to cease and desist from discussing, publishing, circulating, issuing or displaying, or causing to be published … any communication to the effect of their reasons for their crime of discrimination made against any person on account of their sexual orientation,” – Commissioner Brad Avakian  

Because they refused to remain silent and talk radio and Christian websites have been reporting on this heinous act by the tyrants – the State of Oregon has now DEMANDED the Kleins pay the $135,000 in damages by Monday July 13 or else the state of Oregon will place a lien on their home and force them to sell all their assets at auction to satisfy the fine.  Their donation page on GoFundMe was shut down because it was determined their fundraising effort was to support “an illegal purpose”. “After careful review by our team, we have found the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions and have removed this campaign,” Go FundMe officials stated to the Oregonian. 

President of the Family Research Council Tony Perkins stated “An Oregon judge made clear in no uncertain terms to the Kleins and all Americans that the state has the right to demand that citizens engage in activities that violate their beliefs and if they refuse, they will lose their ability to make a living,”.

“Liberty” now means you must take part in and celebrate homosexuality.  If you refuse – you will be punished.  Your wealth will be stripped from you.  Your ability to make a living will be stripped from you.  Your rights will be stripped from you.  Your property and possessions will be stripped from you. Welcome to the Mark of the beast. And we are comfortable with it!  We shrug our shoulders and ignore this outrage!  And this is how tyranny becomes institutionalized.

Not even King George III imposed such wickedness on the Colonists!  They would have picked up arms and gone hunting LONG AGO.  Yet Christians today apparently believe nothing is worth action beyond perhaps prayer and holding a candle.  We are often lectured by pastors and lay members that we must hate the sin, but love the sinner – yet they preach this to themselves ignoring the fact that society and government decree that to hate the sin is to discriminate against the sinner because the sin they engage in – is who they are.  So Christians no longer judge right from wrong and wickedness takes a foothold and gives birth to tyranny.

In such a society, wickedness is declared to be superior to Righteousness: Relationship “Experts”: Gay Marriages Are Superior to Heterosexual Marriages and Gay Parents Superior to Straight Parents

“Men and women are fundamentally different in certain ways, and those differences can pose major challenges in straight marriages. Same-sex couples, by definition, don’t face these obstacles, which is why recent research suggests that same-sex marriages aren’t just equal to straight marriages: in important regards they are superior.”

Woe to those who call good, evil and evil, good! declares Isaiah 5:20. But if you think you can use the bible as a shield in this wicked society and rest safe and secure, think again.  A rising chorus of ‘theologians’ and politicians are declaring that Jesus and The Father embrace Homosexual marriage, castigating those of us who revere God’s Word over the consensus of evil men who have compromised with the homosexual agenda.

Former Presidential national embarrassment and self-proclaimed born-again Christian Jimmy Carter declared that he believed that Jesus would embrace gay marriage.

“I think Jesus would approve of any love affair that was honest and sincere, and was not damaging to anyone else. And I don’t think that gay marriage damages anyone else.” Carter said.   

We might laugh at that – but this quote is now being cited as superior to scripture!  Marxist politicians and homo agenda groups are demanding Churches REVISE the bible and are suing bible publishers to strip any and all negative references of homosexuality out of scripture – citing it is against the law now that SCOTUS has ruled.

How long before we see mass bible burnings in America?? You think I’m kidding? Look at the mob insanity of ripping down the Confederate Flag and digging up the graves of dead generals spreading like wildfire throughout the country.  It will not be long before the “hate speech” of the bible is set ablaze in frenzied rallies in such an atmosphere.

How many of us truly believe it is better to obey God than men?  Your test of whether you really believe that beyond acknowledgment is coming soon, and judging by the fruits of how many churches are capitulating to homosexuality – I think the answer is going to be very few of us willing to obey God rather than “the law” and the agenda.   I mean, where is the big middle finger to tyrants?  Or is that “judging” and being “too mean” and “unChristian”??  I am certainly glad our Founders were not the lukewarm cowards the church in America has become.  I cannot count the number of times I have had Romans 13 thrown in my face to insist that refusing to follow “the Law” is rebelling against God, as if Man’s “laws” trump the Almighty God Jehova’s Supreme Laws.  Our Founders were not so blind:

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it; he is obligated to do so.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God” – Benjamin Franklin

Christians today however, lie to themselves and say they must reflect Jesus by being more ‘caring’ and more ‘accommodating’.

The world’s largest Southern Baptist university, Baylor, on Tuesday dropped language in its sexual misconduct policy that disciplined those who engaged in homosexual acts, a change the socially conservative school said better reflects its values as “a caring community.”  Baylor has removed “homosexual acts” as a punishable offense in its sexual misconduct policy, an official said. However, The policy continues to mandate disciplinary action for sexual assault, incest, adultery and fornication.”

Anyone catch the disconnect with logic there?  Adultery and fornication are still mandated for disciplinary action, but homosexual sex – putting a penis in a man’s rectum is “caring” and not punishable?

The Southern Baptists for crying out loud!

And this Because money trumps truth and because this people WANT to believe the lie. This people will NOT risk persecution.  The church in America WILL NOT endure persecution with their faith intact exactly as I was shown in myself when confronted with it overseas.

Even now – Christians surrender their faith and principles before any real pain is visited!   The mere threat of punishment is enough to cause Christians to surrender and submit, then run to scripture to justify the surrender!  You are witnessing The Great falling Away.  Truth is now evil and wrong.  Evil is now good and wrong is decreed to be right. But what you see is just the tip of the iceberg now being prepared against those of us who disagree with elite consensus.

You and I brethren live in a totalitarian dictatorship whether we recognize it or not.  People disagree with me on this definition, they insist we simply have Authoritarians in control.   Not so.  There is a difference between the two as pointed out in my last blog entry: The New Totalitarians

Simply put, authoritarians merely want obedience, while totalitarians, whose rule is rooted in an ideology, want obedience and conversion. Authoritarians are a dime a dozen; totalitarians are rare.  The authoritarians are the guys in charge who want to stay in charge, and don’t much care about you, or what you’re doing, so long as you stay out of their way. Totalitarians are a different breed. These are the people who have a plan, who think they see the future more clearly than you or who are convinced they grasp reality in a way that you do not. They want obedience, of course. But even more, they want their rule, and their belief system, to be accepted and self-sustaining. And the only way to achieve that is to create a new society of people who share those beliefs, even if it means bludgeoning every last citizen into enlightenment. That’s what makes totalitarians different and more dangerous: they are “totalistic” in the sense that they demand a complete reorientation of the individual to the State and its ideological ends. Every person who harbors a secret objection, or even so much as a doubt, is a danger to the future of the whole project, and so the regime compels its subjects not only to obey but to believe.

Brethren this is where America has arrived.  We are become no different than the Germans of 1933-45, and horrors you cannot imagine are being planned.    It is NOT just Obama – but the entire Democrat-Leftists spectrum of evil now in charge of everything in this country. Don’t believe me?    Consider that we have already exterminated an entire generation of Americans in the womb for the convenience of having sex outside marriage without consequences because the Supreme Court ruled women had a right to murder their baby.   Why should we be surprised that the government now ruling us has implemented what will become relocation pogroms?  Will the church be as indifferent to this as it was to abortion mills and advocate groups selling aborted baby parts and organs?  I am not hopeful.

Nazis March Jews out of homes

But let’s continue with the comparison.  Nazis forced Jews out of homes for the good of the state.  Pol Pot forced everyone out of the cities to slave on farms .  Mao forced everyone into the cities so they can be controlled.  Obama is now ordered the same thing – under the guise of ‘racial and wealth diversity’.  Tyranny is always imposed for the ‘good’ of the people.

HUD Diversitysuburbanliquidation

Obama Introduces New Rules to Desegregate Every Neighborhood In America: cities and towns are now required to look for patterns of racial bias in local housing,  and publicly report the results and set goals to reduce wealthy white majorities in neighborhoods.  Julian Castro, secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development said  “This is the most serious effort that HUD has ever undertaken to do that, I believe that it’s historic.” 

This is a plan they have been working on since 2009 to eradicate the Suburbs and “Cleanse” the rural countryside – which they say must revert to it’s ‘undisturbed natural habitat’. Some point to Agenda 21 of the UN as the pretext for this.  Whatever it is, genocide and ghettos are coming folks.  The evidence is hiding in plain sight, right in front of you.  What is being followed is a Blueprint for how Marxist/Socialist Totalitarian societies exterminate entire segments of their population.

How could we celebrate a country that is devolving into something even worse than pagan Rome or Nazi Germany???  Are we just going to sit here and party on?  Thomas Jefferson answered that question, he said:

“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is Just, and His Justice cannot sleep forever”. 

No brethren – Justice is coming.  So is vengeance. But before that – tribulation for those of us who refuse to submit to what is coming – indeed it is AT OUR DOOR. The question for you is not whether you comply or resist. The question for you is whether you will resist or endure to the point of punishment and death with your faith intact.

We shouldn’t have celebrated a liberty we have allowed to be lost – We should GRIEVE for our betrayal of the trust given to us by God.   Grieve over the sins of this nation, and GRIEVE over the tyranny that we have helped erect over us by our indifference and our inaction as body.   We should Grieve over wickedness of the nation, because if we do not grieve now –   –  we are going to grieve when millions of our countrymen are  buried in mass graves and our children are stacked up like cordwood.

Some of you folks are wondering why I am discussing politics rather than our usual intensive study of the scriptures. I have discussed politics as a matter of setting the table so that the scriptures I am about to give you will have us reflect upon their timeliness for us today, right now. I want to show you that the bible is relevant to your everyday world – not just for those who want to play church.

You might be disinterested in politics, but you better understand that politics is interested in you.  To ignore it, is to accept and condone it – and eventually it overcomes and subjugates you.  But see – most do not want to consider the ugly truth, or look into what God says about the sin of the land.

I set the table as it were because God asks where the grief is over the sins of this land? Should we not sigh and cry over all the abominations being done around us?  Consider what God says in the scriptures about a nation of His People in the midst of wickedness and the onus He places on His Servants living in the midst of it.

Jeremiah 6:10 -18 

To whom can I speak and give warning?   Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear.  The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it. But I am full of the wrath of the Lord, and I cannot hold it in.  “Pour it out on the children in the street and on the young men gathered together; both husband and wife will be caught in it,and the old, those weighed down with years. Their houses will be turned over to others, together with their fields and their wives, when I stretch out my hand against those who live in the land,” declares the Lord. “From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush!  So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the Lord.

This is what the Lord says:“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear, you nations; you who are witnesses, observe what will happen to them. Hear, you earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my law.  

Verse 26  Put on sackcloth, my people,and roll in ashes; mourn with bitter wailing as for an only son, for suddenly the destroyer will come upon us.

The Destroyer is at Hand for America brethren.  But we are stuck in a Normalcy Bias of complacency – refusing to see what is happening around us and what it will portend for us and our children.

I am often told when giving these warnings “Those verses are not my Jesus, Not my God!” they say “He does not expect us to mourn and wail, but to rejoice!  To be Glad In Him!”  “You preach the angry God of the Old Testament Who is done away!”  How illiterate such brethren have allowed themselves to become!  Have they never read John 1: 1-3 and verse 14?  Do they not know Jesus WAS the God of the Old Testament?  We so desperately want to see God as a happy Grandfather in the sky, we refuse to see Him as a loving Father who is angry beyond measure at the amount of trouble we are bringing upon ourselves.

When catastrophe happens, when evil rises – Christians in America are complacent and the only thing Christians will do in this society when disaster strikes is light candles and pray.  What about standing up and fighting back?  Oh no!  That is Extremist.  That is not what Jesus would do!  Oh really????   When Goliath came against Israel did King Saul or David call for a prayer meeting and a candlelight vigil??  No.  I think when God’s Armies were insulted, five smooth stones were fetched from a riverbed for a purpose that Christians today think God never approved of.

AMOS 6: 1-7

Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria, you notable men of the foremost nation,to whom the people of Israel come!   You put off the day of disaster and bring near a reign of terror.   You lie on beds adorned with ivory and lounge on your couches.  You dine on choice lambs and fattened calves.  You strum away on your harps like David and improvise on musical instruments.  You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph.     Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile; your feasting and lounging will end.

Brethren – our prosperity and blessing from the Lord is at an end.  It’s over.  Get that through your skulls.  When the next 9-11 or worse hits us, God is NOT going to come to our rescue.

“Jesus will always save us!” you might be screaming at yourself.   Oh really?  God is ALWAYS going to save us from calamity?  Try telling that to our brethren in India or Christians in Mosul or in Syria – oh wait – there are no more Christians in Mosul – they have all been exterminated and are being run out of the country.  How can we lie to ourselves that such things cannot happen to us as it does for brethren who are more faithful in the face of trials and persecution than most of us have ever faced?  God has every reason to forsake us – since we forsook Him as a nation and threw Him out of our culture, our Schools and our Courts.

Proverbs 1:24-32

But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,when distress and trouble overwhelm you. “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me,  since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord. Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;

We are being destroyed brethren.  Only 10% of Americans know what the 1st Amendment protects.  Did you know that?  According to CNS news, Only 19 percent of American adults know that the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights guarantees the freedom of religion, according to a new survey by the Newseum Institute.  Only 10 percent know the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of the press.    And 33 percent of Americans have no idea at all what rights the First Amendment guarantees.

Hosea 4:6 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Those are scary words if you meditate on them.  HIS people are destroyed because they reject knowledge and instead destroy their history and heritage to accept wicked knowledge and falsehood disguised as enlightenment.  God says He will reject US from being HIS Priests.  I see that application to us every bit as much as it applied to Ancient Judah. I see these verses as having application to us, a former Spiritual Nation of Israel.

That is what Pastor John Cotton decreed the Mayflower Pilgrims to be when he prayed as they set sail from England. I bet most of you never knew that is what the Pilgrims understood they were establishing on these shores.

God directed my attention to this following verse – and this is why I was urging lamentation and grieving over the 4th – because I think this is what has been declared against us by The Lord God Almighty in the Third Heaven:

Ezekiel 9:3-11

Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”  As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion.  Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple.

BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY GOD SAYS.  God told those charged with slaughtering the wicked to BEGIN at the Church – Our Lord’s House!  Why would God tell them to start at HIS SANCTUARY??   Because they were charged by God to keep the society on the moral path and to uphold God’s Laws.  Instead those in Jerusalem perverted it and partook in grievous evil while paying lip service to God.

Of interest to us is that our Founders wrote that it was THE CHURCH in America that was responsible for keeping the culture upright. We have allowed the nation to become perverted and did not stand up against evil when we should have.  Brethren, this charge falls on us today.  We FAILED in the same way those in Judah did!  So the persecution that is coming is part of the Judgment the Lord will pronounce upon us.  And do not think you are going to get raptured us out of here before we suffer the consequences we have sown as a people.  Did The Lord save all your brethren in Syria and Iraq and Egypt from horrors you cannot even wrap your mind around??

No.  Understand that we did not love liberty enough to stand up for it beyond lip service as a body, so it has been taken from us because of our complacency and indifference to evil.

Into tribulation we go, and it will come from the hand of our own people. This people has decreed that they will not be governed by God, so instead we will be ruled by the tyranny of men.

And there is no getting liberty back. Not by voting, not by calling your politician, not by writing the hacks in Washington.  Not by protests or Article V conventions (If they do not follow the Constitution now, how can anyone think they will follow any new Amendments added to it?) It’s called tyranny for a REASON.  The rulers are a law only unto themselves!

Repentance was our only chance at staving off judgment. – but the churches in this country by and large will not allow such things to be discussed among their members.  They do not want to hear it.  They did not want to hear about mission work – neither do they want to hear about programs to help those with porn addiction.   In such conditions liberty cannot be regained, and that is not just my assessment – but a Founding Father’s as well:

Your Description of the Distresses of the worthy Inhabitants of Boston, and the other Sea Port Towns, is enough to melt an Heart of stone. Our Consolation must be this, my dear, that Cities may be rebuilt, and a People reduced to Poverty, may acquire fresh Property: But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it. – John Adams July 7th, 1775 Letter to Abigail

I believe he was prophetic here – plus he was making that statement based on history, human nature and the scriptures by which he was intensely devoted to studying. WE CAN NEVER REGAIN IT.  If we reject a gift from God – how can we expect Him to hand us another one just like it?

Persecution is coming brethren – indeed it is already being institutionalized.  It is NOT enough that we obey our overlords in DC and the wicked mob who empower it – we must be forced to LOVE and make their utopia OUR GOD – or we must be punished and eradicated.  They will erase our entire existence and indeed they have PLANNED to do this!

You can’t work out a truce with tyrants. You can either give in or stand up to them. There’s nothing else. Do you not see what has been set up against us?  That the entire nation has been turned against biblical faith and adherence, that it has been turned against the wealthy?  That is has been turned against it’s own history and heritage?  Turned against those of declared ‘privilege’?  That it is being invaded by third world squatters and our enemies abroad are being armed at your expense?

Obama and the oligarchy in Washington have made a pathway to citizenship for Mexican Reconquinistas.  They have made a pathway to settle Middle Eastern Muslims from Somalia to Syria throughout the country.  They have made a pathway for ghetto thugs to be housed in your neighborhood.  They have made a pathway for criminals to be released into society.  They have made a pathway to governing every minuscule aspect of your life at the same time they have opened the gates to the pathway for civil strife and conflict.  And now they have made a pathway for Iran to develop nuclear weapons and ICBM delivery systems, all at YOUR expense.  Does anyone here know what a Trojan Horse is?  No – it is not just computer malware.  It is the means by which a people welcome the agents of their own annihilation to be placed within their gates.

The Colonists were wise to consider the fact that they suffered the tyranny of the Crown for their sins as a people.  It is why the church pulpits during the 1750’s and 60’s were ablaze with messages of repentance, and it was from those same pulpits that the fire of liberty was stoked and the move towards Independence carried as a torch throughout the colonies.

Today we show our foolishness in refusing to consider we suffer Obama and the tyranny of our own government due to our national sins as a people.  Since the church refused to stoke a fire of repentance in the land for our culture – a torch is being brought against us to consume the nation.

The fires of civil strife are springing up all around us – not just in Ferguson, MO or Baltimore.  The media with subtle aid from our overlords and the Leftist apparatchiks are lighting the fuses of civil strife and violence:

 Obama’s Progressive America: Politico Calls for Ethnic, Cultural Cleansing of Southern Whites
“Northern progressives who joke about the U.S. jettisoning “Jesusland” and merging with Canada will not get their wish. But there is  hope: A combination of demographic change and generational change is weakening the ability of the old-fashioned South to skew American politics and culture in the future.  ”Minus the South, the rest of the U.S. probably would be more like Canada or Australia or Britain or New Zealand—more secular, more socially liberal, more moderate in the tone of its politics and somewhat more generous in social policy.  White Southerners are more likely than white northerners to respond to insults with increased testosterone and aggression, according to social scientists. According to the FBI in 2012, the South as a region, containing only a quarter of the population, accounted for 40.9 percent of U.S. violent crime.”

In short, the zeitgeist spreading throughout the country says that White Americans are MONSTERS that “must be dealt with if we hope to become a better society.  This is not limited to skin color, but also to the Christian faith.

CNN’s Sally Kohn offered yesterday the following remarks when discussing the Daily Beasts headline article The New Post-Homophobic Christianity – “Should anti-gay Christians be politically, socially and culturally ostracized? Should they be criminalized?   I sure hope so”.  

Genocides are built on this kind of rhetoric and the zeitgeist is rapidly growing and accelerating at the behest of the Ruling Class. There is no exception to history that when the ruling class of a people demonize specific group of people and their culture – that populace is subjugated and then eradicated. The demonization is done for the purpose of getting the larger society to applaud the removal of those the Ruling Class has targeted.  Every Marxist revolution requires blood in the streets and suffering in order for the people to applaud the iron fist to bring order.

The math is not hard folks.  Obama and the Left are drawing all evil to themselves.  They ally with our avowed enemies, they arm them, enable them and sow division and discord among us here at home.  A nation in civil strife is more easily destroyed from outside once it is sufficiently weakened from within.

Obama is Judgment upon us for our sins.  I am convinced He is The Destroyer.  He is suddenly upon us – and I fear for the faith to endure amongst us.  The time of tribulation is come for us now brethren.  There is no stopping it.

You cannot reason with it.  You cannot negotiate with it.  It will force you to comply, it will force you to surrender your faith – or you cannot make a living.  You will be enticed to surrender and love the regime for the mere promise of bread, and your neighbors will willingly turn you over for the same.   If you refuse – you are going to be punished.  It is already happening and we just sit here and give thanks that is not us.     Niemoller’s proverb on full display here now in America.

If Matthew 24 plays out here as I am thinking it will, you are going to be arrested, jailed, tortured and killed.  You and your families, your kids and grandkids.  This government has already categorized Conservative Christians in official documents as domestic terrorists. Look at how they empowered the IRS to destroy Conservative and Christian groups.

Understand that the life most of our brethren in the 3rd world have lived under is now come here to the USA.  ‘Start at MY Sanctuary” sayeth the Lord’. Read Matthew 24. It’s not pretty, but Jesus told us what will happen to His followers in the Last Days.   But we are are not ready to endure it.  I learned that painful lesson myself.  And if Judgment and horror and captivity are coming then we must trust in God and His Christ no matter what is horrors are happening around us or to us.  Do not lose your faith.  The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Matthew 10:21-33  

Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Satan, how much more will they malign you who are of his household? So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

The time is upon us where we are going to be asked or demanded to deny God, His Son, His Word – and follow “The Law” whatever that “law” says we must bow down to and obey.  Romans 13 will be thrown in your face as a justification to endorse and condone sin, or you will suffer consequences.  Your fiery furnace of Tribulation will have arrived.

Will you deny Yeshua by relenting and accepting the mark of their beast in your thoughts and then in your actions because you want to avoid being tortured into loving the state?  Do you think you can remain silent and just hide who you are supposed to be?  Can you put your light under a bushel to avoid persecution and still shine the light of the Gospel?  Hoping and praying that they overlook you?  Or are you going to stand up – acknowledge and proclaim the Lord before these wicked men and women REGARDLESS of the consequences?  Are you courageous, or a coward?  Be honest when you ask yourself this.  Will you bow down, or will you refuse – believing that God is strong enough to save you – but even if He does not – YOU STILL will refuse to comply with evil??

I was shown that when push came to shove, as an American with no experience with what our brethren suffer every day – I would get angry at God, be a coward and fold like a cheap suit.  I’m ashamed I got angry with God because He did not rescue our brethren like I expected – and I have repented of thinking God operates within my American prosperity worldview.  I ask for courage to endure what is coming – not that I be saved out of it, because I do not believe all of us are going to be saved out of it.  I never believed in the Rapture.  I believe Jesus meant what He said in Matthew 24.

Our Place of Safety in the wilderness in this country has come to it’s end – and the flood of evil and wicked people are at our doors – and our eradication is their intent unless we deny the Father and the Son and go along to get along thinking the crocodile will eat us last.

This is the ugly truth brethren.  No one likes the truth these days – as Orwell wrote

“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

We should be ashamed brethren at what we have allowed to be done to us.  Some have said to me that “The Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves”.  Very true, especially when their graves will be dug up and disposed of into mass unmarked trenches to satisfy the cleansing of our culture.   Our Second President already told us what he would do if we should betray the trust:

“Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.” – John Adams, April 1777 Letter to Abigail

I think that God Himself – is repenting that He made us a great nation, for even the church has been derelict in it’s commission and it’s duties in this country.  For this we should be ashamed  For this we should grieve.

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin. 

America has been found wanting in the balances and the handwriting is on the wall.  Pray for forgiveness, give thanks – and ask God to bless us with endurance, our time has come.

We must remember Romans 8:28 tells us All things work out for good – even horrors, and most of the time as we suffer – we cannot see that reality.  But if we rehearse it in our minds, knowing what Christ has told us in advance – our chance of enduring with our faith intact via strength from The Holy Spirit will see us doing Isaiah 58:1, proclaiming The Lord against a wicked and perverse generation and that steadfast commitment will take us into the Kingdom of God.

Obama: ISIS Has “Legitimate Grievances” Biden: “Christians Commit Violence In The Name Of The Bible” Obama: “Islam Not Responsible For Terrorism”

ISISgenocide CoptsBeheaded

Obama says terrorists need jobs and opportunities; America must “Lift up the voice of tolerance” adding “Muslims are unfairly targeted with suspicion”

The Trojan Horse Traitor in the White House doubled-down on his regime’s appeasement and support of Jihad terrorists including ISIS.  Obama once again turned all admonitions into his communist manifesto asserting that “violent extremists” (Jihad terrorists) need jobs and “opportunities” because “resentments fester” and “extremism grows when millions are impoverished”.   So in one speech Obama justifies ISIS and atrocities committed in the name of Islamic jihadists by saying they have ‘legitimate grievances’ while out of the other side of his mouth – says Islam has nothing to do with terrorism.

Obama insisted that ISIS is NOT ISLAMIC while at this very same event at the White House the day before, Joe Biden declared that “Extremists commit violence in the name of the bible”.

Obama warned that Muslims are unfairly regarded with suspicion, insisting “we must raise the voice of tolerance” in the US and beyond.  A dichotomy of the absurd since Obama himself equated the mass beheadings of Christians by ISIS with the Crusades , lecturing us that atrocities are committed in the Name of Christ at the National Prayer Breakfast two weeks ago.  Isn’t it interesting that Obama will easily state that violence is committed in the name of Jesus but will never utter the truth that terrorism is being committed in the name of Mohammed?  That is because Obama himself is aiding and abetting the rise of the two emerging Islamic Caliphates, whereupon all this insanity, appeasement and misdirection is intended to abolish any resolve to stand against the Islamic State’s march on the world.

So the official position of the United States is that Jihadists need jobs and economic opportunity or muslims will join a jihad.  In other words, we cannot judge what ISIS is doing with the beheadings and mass murder as evil because these jihadists have “legitimate grievances”.

As insane as that sounds, that is exactly what Obama meant, along with the subtle references that Christians and the Bible are the world’s REAL terrorists.

Obama’s ridiculous “White House Countering Violent Extremism Summit” circus, is simply a venue to publicly appease Jihadist Islam while bashing Christians and “Right Wing militias”.  At his “summit” Obama invited known Islamic Terrorists and supporters of Jihad to attend with group representatives having links to ISIS.  On this platform Obama loudly insisted that we will never be at war with Islam saying “These terrorists are desperate for legitimacy and all us have a responsibility to refute the notion that groups like ISIL somehow represent Islam”.  Except that ISIS itself is called “The ISLAMIC STATE” and is conquering territory for the EXPRESS PURPOSE of establishing an Islamic State that will wage jihad across the globe and impose Islam on the world at the edge of the sword.

It is becoming self-evident that Obama is an Apologist for Jihadists and given his words and actions, is potentially an agent for the Caliphate himself.

Obama says world should address ‘grievances’ that terrorists exploit

Obama defended his administration’s approach to the terror threat at a White House summit Wednesday, standing by claims that groups like the Islamic State do not represent Islam — as well as assertions that job creation could help combat extremism.

Obama, addressing the Washington audience on the second day of the summit, said the international community needs to address “grievances” that terrorists exploit, including economic and political issues.

…“We do have to address the grievances that terrorists exploit including economic grievances,” he said.

He also said no single religion was responsible for violence and terrorism, adding he wants to lift up the voice of tolerance in the United States and beyond.

…Obama also called on Muslim leaders to “do more to discredit the notion that our nations are determined to suppress Islam, that there is an inherent clash in civilizations.”

Obama acknowledged that some Muslim-Americans have concerns about working with the government, particularly law enforcement, and that their reluctance “is rooted in the objection to certain practices where Muslim-Americans feel they’ve been unfairly targeted.”

He said it was important it make sure that abuses stop and are not repeated and that “we do not stigmatize entire communities.” He also said it was vital that “no one is profiled or put under a cloud of suspicion simply because of their faith.”

Unless of course you are Christian.  Then this regime will slander the entire faith, and declare Christians to be extremists and terrorists.

Where Have All The Christian Soldiers Gone?

The abject failure of the Christian church in America is astounding when you compare the church today with Americans from 70 years ago.

This essay on the condition of Christianity in America is so succinct in it’s indictment – that to ignore it is to invite the judgment that is for certain coming upon the House of God in this country.  As I have stated before, in the context of the bible and our military: a military that is not bound by the bible and Christian principles is a military that can be used to crush righteousness and impose wickedness.

 

Onward Christian Soliders? Not Likely

George Tate

George Tate was in the US Army in World War II. He served in a unit that was establishing communication lines across the Himalayas.

George’s son, Sid is a parishioner, he said about his Dad, “His plane was riddled with enemy gunfire going in, and as I understand it his job was conducted in an active combat zone. He received the Bronze Star, which was the military’s 4th highest award:  Awarded to ‘any person whom while serving in with the United States military after 6 December 1941, that distinguished himself or herself apart from his or her comrades by brave or praiseworthy achievement or service. The act justifying award of the medal must be performed while fighting an enemy of the United States, or while involved in conflict with an opposing/foreign force.’ ”

Sid sent me this snapshot  of the opening pages of his Dad’s government issued WW2 G.I. Bible.

Note the beautifully written letter from the occupant of the White House. It is simple, dignified and full of an assumed faith, shared hope and noble spirit.

Imagine such a letter being written today by the present occupant.

It’s impossible.

warbible

The following preface pages offered manly Christian advice for soldiers going into battle:

warbible2

warbible3

See how it is assumed that the soldiers first of all, know what the Christian virtues are, and secondly, that they have an interest in pursuing them. They live in a moral universe. It is assumed that a man will be seeking to be the best man he can be–not just the richest man he can be. It is assumed that the soldiers will understand this moral quest, and even if they dismiss it, that they will at least know that they are dismissing something which is great and good.

Is such an awareness alive in our society today? I don’t see it.

Should the armies of the False Prophet Mohammed advance, and should we need to go into battle would we be able to summon the same Spirit of noble Christianity in our country today? I doubt it.

What strikes me about this artifact from the second world war is that this Bible was issued to the troops without question. It was seen to be part of their equipment and to be accepted by all with an open heart and mind.

This indicates that the whole population understood that the moral battles were also spiritual battles, and if there was a spiritual dimension to war, then there was also such a thing as spiritual warfare. Soldiers were expected to be equipped physically but they were also expected to be fit morally and spiritually.

Millions of young Americans went into battle across the world from a country that was truly Christian in its worldview and self understanding. They were not all knights in shining armor, they were a band of sinners, but they had a shared underlying faith and set of moral values. They understood that they were engaged in spiritual as well as physical warfare.

Furthermore, they were clear about their objectives. They were faced with an overwhelming and clearly evil force and they rallied to defeat it.

In the intervening seventy years our moral fiber has been so weakened by wealth, decadence and self indulgence that it seems unlikely not only that such a noble letter would be written from the White House, but that our own people would be able to respond with anything like the simple, noble spirit evidenced by this soldier’s Bible.

Our country has suffered from a severe disintegration of our faith so that many no longer believe in the spiritual dimension of evil nor do they believe in the concept of good and evil at all. Instead “evil” is what does not work and “good” is what works. There is no need for virtue in utilitarianism.

We are also reeling from a moral revolution so destructive that we still cannot understand its final implications.

I’m talking about the sexual revolution of the 1960s. What came along with the pill was not just illegitimacy, abortion, divorce, pornography and sexual disease. The other destruction was the erosion of the moral sense. For most men the first and most pressing area of self control was to control the sexual drive. With the pill and anti bionics that was gone.

Once that area of life no longer needed to be controlled why control anything else? The rampant sexuality brought on rampant greed, rampant violence, rampant self indulgence, rampant gluttony, rampant drug use, rampant alcohol abuse. Why control oneself at all? There was suddenly no motivate to achieve virtue. Why should one seek to be virtuous unless one retained some sort of religious faith, such an ambition was pointless.

The men who fought were our fathers and grandfathers. They were manly, simple, strong and good. They were good and they are gone. What would those young men have thought of the state of our nation today? Abortion on demand? Same sex marriage? Sex education for first graders? “Transgendered” men dressing as women and having an operation to become women? Women priests and homosexual priests? Those who survive must be horrified. Those who have gone would ask if this is what they fought and died for.

I know. I know.

There are wonderful, strong and good fighting men and women in our armed forces today.

I also know that much of the rot in our country today was brought about by the very men who returned from the second world war and pursued a path of greed, self indulgence and worldly power.

Nevertheless, this artifact from only seventy years ago reminds us where we were and how far we have fallen.

This is the Muslim criticism of our culture: that we are the Great Satan: we are decadent, immodest, sexually depraved, twisted, fat, complacent, immoral, violent and cruel. They see that we kill our unborn, divorce our wives, rape our children and murder one another in the streets. That’s how they see us. Are they completely wrong?

In one of the other front pages we see the Lord’s Prayer one the left hand side and well known Christian hymns on the right.

The first hymn listed is “Onward Christian Soldiers…Marching as to War…with the cross of Jesus going on before.”

Onward Christian Soldiers today?

Not Likely.

The Laodecian and Sardis Church in America: Lukewarm or Dead

The Socialized Church in America no longer stands for righteousness and against sin, as it embraces a new morality pushed by Secular Socialists and Marxists. 

 

In preaching and speaking to Christian churches, the discussion often turns to blaming one group of people or another for the woes afflicting our nation.  My response is that the real culprits that deserve blame and should do 2 Chronicles 7:14 are Christians in America who have gone lukewarm and embrace ideas and doctrines that are of the province of Satan, who transformed them into angels of light that the Socialist church has embraced and is spreading.

This entire essay by Pastor Roger Anghis is a must read in it’s entirety and indicts the church in America for their role of being Laodecian or Sardis in attitude towards their faith; either lukewarm or dead.

DeToqueville will be proven a prophet with a warning that Christians have not heeded.

The Apostacy of the Church

By Pastor Roger Anghis

2Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
(3) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
(4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

We have entered into a time where biblical prophecy can be found in the daily news paper on a daily basis. One of the things that is spoken of in scripture is the actions of the ‘social church’ in the last days. The ‘social church’ is not the true church as the true church will hold strong to the precepts of God. The social church will lean heavily towards what society accepts. Today’s society has accepted people living together without the benefit of marriage. In the social church this subject is very rarely talked about and many in that church are living together without being married. Today’s society has no problem with divorce for almost any reason. In the social church the divorce rate is actually higher than in the world. Society does not have a problem with alcohol and I have seen the social church actually serving alcohol on church property. Society is beginning to accept same-sex marriage and all that it brings with it. We have many denominations that are now ordaining practicing homosexuals to lead their churches.

These insane actions from today’s so-called churches do nothing but confuse the parishioners. When the Bible says one thing about a subject but the preacher teaches something entirely the opposite, this causes confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” Now that we have verified where the teachings that are contrary to the Bible are originated we can understand why too many ‘churches’ are so far away from what the Bible teaches. When the church ignores the laws and precepts of God’s Word, the church becomes ineffective in the society that it exists in.

The church in America was the center of government, education and enforcement during the founding years. These churches relied on what God required and then acted accordingly. That philosophy created the greatest nation the world will ever see. It was only when the church began to allow the philosophy of the worlds system into the church that the church began to lose its influence in the society where it once flourished. No system of governing that man has devised has ever been successful. The fall of all empires, the Greek, Persian, and Roman and even Russia are perfect examples. America’s system, based on biblical principles, has been the most effective, prosperous and successful for its people than any form of government this world has ever seen. Yet, we no longer embrace the values taught in scripture. The decline was gradual until 1954. At that time then Senator Lyndon Johnson attached an amendment to an IRS bill that made it illegal for a 501(c)3 corporation to be involved in the political arena. When the church was taken out of the political arena, the influence of godly principles began to fall exponentially.

Today most pastors don’t know that the church was ever involved in politics. This is disturbing because when you study the Bible God always had a man of God in a position of influence to those in government, always. That should give some pastors a hint that this should still be happening. I have spoken with many pastors about being involved in the political arena by preaching the importance of godly men in office, something that our Founders were very strong concerning and they look at me with terror in their eyes because of the fear of losing their precious 501(c)3. The Bible tells us that we are to have godly men in authority over us: Exodus 18:21 “Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:”. This is the verse the Founders used to establish the different levels of government; local, state and federal. Then we are told to pray for those in authority over us; 1 Timothy 2:1 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

(2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. What sense does it make to put ungodly men and women in authority over us and then spend all our time praying that they do godly things?

The church has been so slack in standing for the things of God that we have allowed our rights and freedoms to be taken from us mostly without a fight. In 1947 the Supreme Court reversed the meaning of the 1st Amendment stating that there should never be a biblical influence in government instead of never having governmental influence in the church and the church did nothing. In 1954 they stood by and let our freedom of speech and our right to participate in the political process be taken away and the church did nothing. In 1962 they made it illegal to pray in school and the church did nothing. In 1963 they took the Bible out of the school and the church did nothing.

Now there is a case before the Supreme Court that, if decided in the governments favor, will allow the government to tell the church who they can hire for ministers and even if they will allow a minister to hold certain positions in the church. Little by little we have lost our rights and freedoms because the church has refused to stand for what is right.

Pastors no longer have the backbone that the pastors had in the founding era. An excerpt from my book, American Exceptionalism, speaks about the influence that the pastors of the founding era had: “Historian B.F. Morris stated: The ministers of the Revolution were, like their Puritan predecessors, bold and fearless in the cause of their country. No class of men contributed more to carry forward the Revolution and to achieve our independence than did the ministers. . . . [B]y their prayers, patriotic sermons, and services [they] rendered the highest assistance to the civil government, the army, and the country. Alice Baldwin went one step further when she stated: The Constitutional Convention and the written Constitution were the children of the pulpit.”

Where is that fortitude today? Very few pastors are willing to stand up for what our Founders fought and died for. They have become pacifists and pansies. They have forgotten that they will stand before God on judgment day not the IRS. Another excerpt from American Exceptionalism: “These men were men of honor and integrity. They preached that Christians should live in the fullness of God’s Word. There were sermons on the deity of Christ, on Christmas, on Easter, but there were also sermons on other varied topics that you would not hear preached today such as sermons on bridges [architecture], earthquakes, taxes, elections, even executions.

Whatever was in the forefront of the people’s daily lives, the pastors would address it from a Biblical perspective. They were always out front in the fight for freedom. They helped write state constitutions, were the founders of most of our colleges and universities such as Yale, Harvard, Columbia [Kings College], Princeton, William and Mary, Dartmouth, and Rutgers University. By 1860 there were 246 colleges founded and all but 17 were founded by different religious denominations. They were the ones taking care of the wounded in battle and even served in state legislatures and Congress.

These pastors were very astute concerning God-given rights and would be very vocal about any attempt of government to encroach in those areas. They were vocal on things that involved liberty and freedoms and taught constantly about resisting any form of tyranny. Church historian Charles Galloway regarded the pastors of the Founding era to be the pillars of the community. He declared: Mighty men they were, of iron nerve and strong hand and unblanched cheek and heart of flame. God needed not reeds shaken by the wind, not men clothed in soft raiment [Matthew 11:7-8], but heroes of hardihood and lofty courage. . . . And such were the sons of the mighty who responded to the Divine call.”

Today churches allow almost anything inside the church. Recently we have seen the worst ‘marriage’ that we have ever seen. That is the Christian church embracing the teaching of Islam. There can be no more a foolish, not to mention stupid, thing that the church could do. The Bible is the light to all the world. Islam is darkness personified. Have they not read scripture? 2 Corinthians 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” I have seen the Pope kissing a copy of the Quran! That is insane. A few months ago there was a Sunday where churches all over America combined Christian worship with Islamic worship and preached sermons and held Sunday school lessons on the founder of Islam, Mohammad, whom Muslims consider a prophet. Why are we teaching about Mohammad in our churches instead of Jesus?

The Quran is diabolically opposed to the Holy Bible. Many state that Christians, Jews and Muslims worship the same God. Not so! If that was true then God is a psychopath. In scripture God tells us how to treat an enemy: Romans 12:20 “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.” The Quran gives a different command: Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” If this was the same god giving these instructions, that god is contradicting himself. Islam will do anything to get their ‘foot in the door’. Lie, cheat, steal or deceive. They are masters at deception and the Christian church does not even to make an effort, it seems, to understand how the Muslims work.

History tells us that at no time in history have muslims assimilated into any society that they have immigrated into. Their purpose is to take that society over and install shariah law. Look at the largest muslim community in America, Dearborn, MI. In that muslim community it is illegal to pass out tracts to muslims. That is a violation of our religious freedoms and freedom of speech. Church bells are illegal in Dearborn. In Hartford, CN the muslim leaders met with the city council and informed them that there would be no passing out of tracts within four blocks of a mosque! They gave no regard to our constitutional rights.

This is what we are dealing with. They will say and do anything to get into our society and then demand that that society comply with their shariah law giving no regard to our national constitution.

We can no longer allow the church to go any direction it wants. God has set the guidelines and they must be followed. The church in early America followed them and we all know how America prospered. It wasn’t until the church backed away from her proper role that we started to see America go down the wrong path. In scripture we see that however the faith of the leaders went, so went Israel. The church was the center of everything in the founding era and it was strong and bold. Today it is weak. There are many churches that have not gone down that path and have held strong to the true call of the church. But far too many have forsaken the call and have now put the future of America in jeopardy.

I challenge pastors to get back to what God has called the church to be. Forget your political correctness because if you are political correct you are more than likely biblically wrong. Become again what God has called us to be.

Persecution: Feds Ban Use of “God” at Veterans Cemetary

In the ongoing and continuing war on God and Jesus Christ in this country, there is news this weekend that the Feds have banned volunteers at the Houston National Cemetery from saying “God Bless You” at funerals and were ordered to remove the words ‘God Bless” from condolence cards.  This federal government’s policy is that any “religious” (meaning Christian or biblical – let’s get this right) texts or words must be submitted FOR APPROVAL in advance to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Obviously the First Amendment means nothing anymore to this government, and like the Soviet Union, all speech and religious references must first be approved by a bureaucrat, or such speech and religious exercise is forbidden.

Our Founders went to war and drew blood for far less than this.

MessiahObama: Pelosi Says Obama “More Patient Than Job of the Bible”

In yet another sickening example of the attempt of the Marxists and Socialists in this country to deify Presidente Hussein Obama and loft him to god-like status, former House Speaker Nancy “Stretch” Pelosi makes the BLASPHEMOUS statement that Job of scripture cannot compare to Hussein Obama in terms of patience and godly righteousness in conjunction with the debt ceiling negotiations that the Boy King has thrown tantrums and stormed out of.

The overt in-our-face insistences that the Boy King is above us mere mortals, and cannot be bothered by questions or anyone daring to defy him and his demands is beyond insulting, it’s blasphemous.

Our God is not mocked despite the insidiously stupid things the Marxists and other sycophants of Obama attempt to foist on us.  Pelosi is just the latest and most absurd attempt thusfar to equate or compare Obama to biblical patriarchs, prophets or Christ Himself.

Hattip to CNS news for breaking the story:

Notwithstanding Pelosi’s biblical ignorance here, but to compare Obama to Job is beyond vomitous.  Satan was permitted by God to put Job into trial by killing all ten of his children, having his fields burned and ransacked by invading armies and then found hims self covered in painful boils that prompted Job to sit on an ash heap while scraping his sores.  This all done to test whether Job would curse God, while The Lord used the trial to polish a flaw in Job’s character.  Still in all, after such a heinous trial of the flesh, Job did not curse God.  Even Job’s wife turned on him along with three so-called friends who then attempted to accuse him of affronting the Almighty.

So let’s get this Pelosi blasphemy squared here;  all of Job’s ten children are brutally killed.  Job loses everything he has, including his wealth, fields and stature.  He then is covered in sores and relegated to an ash heap where his wife and his friends abandon him to accusatory torment.  And NerObama??

What has NerObama suffered that goes BEYOND what Job endured according to Pelosi??

He’s not getting his way to raise our debt ceiling; he’s getting questions shouted at him by reporters; he’s upset he can’t get a blank check so he can spend more of our money we don’t have for Socialist programs that empower him and his fellow communists.

So he storms out of talks and threatens seniors, vets and other dependent Americans with holding check payments in a tried-and-true Marxist method of extortion to get what he wants.

And Pelosi says NerObama is by far, more virtuous and patient than Job in scripture?

While the Democrats, Marxists and Socialists claim the Conservatives and Republicans are demons for not giving into what the Boy King wants – the fact is, they are projecting exactly as Satan himself projects, while standing before the throne of God accusing the saints night and day.

Some of us are aware what wavelength these tyrants in high office operate under, for some of us are not ignorant of the Devil’s devices.

For even Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  And in NerObama’s case – he has fellow sycophants do it for him.
