(Pastor James Robison response to the Democrats in Congress)
Watching President Trump’s first State of the Union address made one thing very clear to me – a very large segment of our elected officials are more concerned with their own agenda’s than with God’s. Pastor James Robison brings spiritual concepts into the real life realm in this video.
I couldn’t help noticing that most of these so-called leaders are old! But, many of them are not exuding the wisdom of age, because they have obviously forsaken the Lord, from Whom alone comes wisdom.
“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” – Job 28:28
They are not leading in the ways of wisdom but in the ways of bondage! Even though I am 82 years old, I can say it is time for the youth to come forward. They may not have the experience of the old but, what good is experience that is based in wickedness? I challenge the youth to pick up the mantle, turn wholeheartedly to the Lord, Who is the source of true wisdom and He will be your strength. I remind you of another young man from the past, who is still speaking to our generation – Zechariah, who prophesied to the captives who were released from their Babylon captivity and returned only to find their country in ruins. They were so overwhelmed by the rebuilding needed that they were giving up – and the Lord spoke through Zechariah –
“Don’t be as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets cried, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD. And your fathers, where are they?” – (Zec 1:1-5)
The fathers (old men) forgot that wisdom and blessings come from God alone –
“The Lord is with you while you are with Him, and if you seek Him, He will be found of you. But if you forsake Him, He will forsake you” – (II Chronicles 15:2)
We are in captivity as much as they were; captivity to sexual immorality, to greed, to demonically inspired lifestyles, to destructive world views such as socialism, communism, and humanism, and to selfish rebellion which looks to government to solve their problems rather than to God, who alone can solve them!. Our educational communities are not teaching truth but are teaching doctrines designed to bring us down as a nation and a people. I know, I was a teacher for over 30 years in both High School and college and witnessed the corruption of liberalism first hand.
We are standing on a precipice, if we do not turn to the Lord – destruction, but, if we turn back to the Lord – healing, deliverance, and blessing. As the Lord spoke to Zechariah so, He is speaking to us –
“But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, they did not take hold of your fathers? [Your fathers wouldn’t listen.] and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do to us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us” – (Zec 1:6)
I will end this lesson here but, in my next articles I will share some of the revelations God gave Zechariah, revelations that are for our day and time.
To all but, especially to the young –
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” – Isa. 60:1,2
