My heart is weeping for a nation founded on Biblical principles that has fallen into a net of apostasy, rebellion, and sin. As the Pilgrim William Bradford declared, “We shall be as a city founded upon a hill” that reflects the glory of Almighty God. How shocked he would be today to see the corruption and rebellion rampant in society today. We have become as Isaiah prophesied –
“Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the LORD, They have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward.” – Isa. 1:4
In 2016, I wrote a post called The Prophetic Nature of Christmas in which I highlighted the war being waged against parents and their children. It is such an important message that I re-post it here.
As we are just a few days from Christmas it would be good to reflect where we are in God’s plan for mankind. We know the Hebrew people had the promise of Messiah’s coming long before He actually came and when He really did come, many in Israel missed it because they were looking for a warrior King who would re-establish the kingdom of David. They forgot that God loved all people, all His creation, as much as He did His people Israel. God foreknew most of Israel would reject their Messiah and so the door would be open for all people to come into the Kingdom of God through the Grace that was won by Jesus on the cross.

Paul writes to Timothy, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” and friends, we are in those ‘latter times’. The Bible begins with the creation, and the final act of creation was to create mankind.
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” – Gen. 1:27
Among the powers God gave to mankind was the power to procreate, to have children. In fact the first command given by God to man is to “be fruitful and multiply”. God even calls children a heritage and a blessing – Continue reading
I must admit that I have wondered about President Trump. Some say ‘He is the Antichrist!’ and some say ‘He is Jehu’ sent to save us from Hilary Clinton. As I have prayed about him and asked God about him, I have come to believe he is a ‘restrainer’, as Paul writes, sent by God to restrain the forces of Antichrist from ruling the world before God’s timing.
“And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” – 2 Thes. 2:6,7 Continue reading
Malachi is the last book of the Old Testament and it is interesting that the last words of the book have to do with remembering and family.
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Malachi 4:4-6 Continue reading
I wrote this article in 2016 but, its truth needs to be shared again. The Church has slipped even further into the Babylon system that will form the Harlot of Babylon. Jesus taught –
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:13-16
The salt Jesus is talking about is that preservative that fights corruption – the corruption of sin. And the light He is talking about is that God given exposure to the truth as God defines it. It alone can drive away darkness. Mystery Babylon cannot stand either. Her spirit thrives in darkness and she is full of corruption. If we would follow Jesus we must be salt and light in our time. One thing about salt – you always know it is there! There is no hiding it. And light always exposes darkness for what it is. Continue reading
While many Christians are failing their main mission in the world – uplifting the glory of God and telling the world the good news of the Gospel – the devil is fast at work trying to defeat God’s plan. Instead of converting the world, Christians are compromising the with the world. They have forgotten to uplift the glory of God by obeying His commands, one of the first of which God ever gave to mankind – Continue reading
