Breaking the Pitchers

georgenov022017Our first President, George Washington, is quoted as saying, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert great pillars of human happiness.” By religion he meant Christianity and its tenants. In it’s history, America has had several revivals of that sentiment in which it turned back to God and His words. But, that is not the current case as the entertainment industry, epitomized by Hollywood, has become the Antichrist’s immorality voice of the world. And our current government encourages them by eliminating God from public view. Democrats have dropped the phrase ‘So help me God’ from the testimony sworn by witnesses before Congressional hearings, Democrat Jerry Nadler remarking “God’s Will is No Concern of This Congress”, to passing the Equality Bill which elevates homosexuals and Lesbians and transgenderism to protected status.

These are just a few of the attacks currently going on against the Christian faith in government. The military, under leadership placed by late President Obama, is purging those with extremist views from the military, and by extremist views they include Evangelical Christianity. How have we reached such a condition in the United States, the land of Liberty? The main reason is because the Christian Church has failed to be the Light Jesus commanded it to be.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” – Matt. 5:11

And He also said –

“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” – John 3:20, 21

Christian Apostacy

Large portions of the church have been practicing evil and so doesn’t want to come to the Light! It has allowed abortion and homosexuality to feel comfortable in church. It has been to busy becoming ‘seeker friendly’, preaching a “I’m OK, You’re OK” doctrine instead of the Word of God, and all for increased numbers and increased money. Or it has simply taught manmade church doctrine instead of the truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus taught which states that you must live righteously. It ordained female pastors which allowed the spirit of Jezebel to get into the church just as the Church of Thyatira did. And most importantly, it was silent at the wickedness being displayed in society and government. It stood by and let them take down the Ten Commandments and take prayer out of the schools. And it allowed it’s members to vote for those politicians who were doing these wicked things without saying a word.

Jesus predicted there would be famines in the last days, and so there are, but the worst famine is a famine of the word of God! The prophet Amos predicted this in the last days –

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.” – Amos 8:11

Is all hopeless? After all, David wrote in Psalms, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3). Well, Hosea has the answer –

“Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” – Hosea 10:12

And –

“Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.” – Hosea 67:1-3

Remember what the Apostle Peter said, “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8). So Hosea is saying after 2000 years He will raise us up! He will come to us like the former and latter rain. These are the days of the prophesied latter rain! The prophet Zechariah said –

“Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.” – Zech. 10:1

No, not all is hopeless if we do what Hosea says and “pursue the knowledge of the LORD” and return the Him. Seek the Lord and cry out to Him for rain, the latter rain. If the Church repents and removes the bushel basket off it’s light and begins to be salt for society once again, we can recover with the Lord’s help. The story of Gideon is our pattern, if we break the pitchers, let the torches shine, and blow the shofars, the Midianites will flee!

On Religion and Morality

georgenov022017Our first President, George Washington, is quoted as saying, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert great pillars of human happiness.” By religion he meant Christianity and its tenants. But what do we see now in the Democrat Party and the Presidency? We see authority based on lies. We see the promotion of abortion, which is the murder of the unborn. We see support for homosexuals and lesbians and transgenderism. All of which are in exact opposition to the time honored tenants of religion! They cannot claim the title of patriot! Further more, by selling out to Communist China, which only the blind or liars would refuse to admit. they have earned the title of traitor as well. Then by opening the southern border to illegals flooding the country, which they are doing for the sake of a few more Democrat votes, They are earning the title of un-American! And at the same time they are flooding the country with disease and drugs. But, there is an even more sinister plan afoot – forced vaccinations for the Chinese virus, which is presently being discussed at the Whitehouse and several State capitals. This video was recently posted for the State of Oklahoma and may be seen on Facebook at the following link – https://www.facebook.com/kurt.nelson.9480/posts/793053391588256 . However, before you consider taking the vaccination, you should consider what this emanate doctor has to say about.

We are moving quickly into the end-times described in the Book of Revelation. We know there will be a Beast Kingdom coming that will try to rule the entire world. And even now the ‘globalist’ movement is gaining strength. Jesus said these days would be preceded with “famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” The UN predicts ‘2021 going to be catastrophic,’ UN warned it faces worst crises in its history –

“We’re now looking literally at 2021 being the worst humanitarian crisis year since the beginning of the United Nations, and we’re going to have to step up.”

But there is also another kind of famine on the land: Israel365 wrote – “MAJOR WORLDWIDE FAMINE IN 2021 ‘PRESAGING MESSIAH AS PROPHESIED BY AMOS’”

“A time is coming—declares my God—when I will send a famine upon the land: not a hunger for bread or a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of Hashem.” Amos 8:11 (The Israel BibleTM)

Pestilences are now upon the entire world in the form of the Chinese virus. And the globalist are using it to shut down freedoms of individuals, and shutting down economies around the world through fear. The so-called vaccine passports being talked about will put us in exactly the condition talked about in the Book of Revelation.

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” – Rev. 13:16-17

I’m not saying this is the mark of the Beast but, it certainly preparing us to receive it. Just like the wearing of masks, which do nothing to protect from the virus, is not preparing us for “herd immunity” but rather for “herd control”! Then there is the rise in earthquakes in various places.

Worldwide Surge in ‘Great’ Earthquakes Seen in Past 10 Years

The global rate of “great” earthquakes nearly tripled in recent years, but does that portend a problem for unruptured faults along the northwest U.S.?

This is also leading to the increase in volcanos around the world. All these are signs Jesus taught would accompany the end of the age. He warned us the persecution would increase –

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” – Matt. 24:9-14

This is the part of the Gospel of the Kingdom that many do not like to hear. But persecution is already at record levels around the world and it is especially high in China! But, it is growing in the West as well, where we see Churches being closed and pastors being arrested, as in Canada. And it is all over the Chinese virus! The vaccine, whether to take it or not, will cause offense for many and will divide Christians from Christians. And have you noticed the rise in prophetic voices being sounded throughout the land? Don’t be deceived, not all of them are of the Lord. But, even in the midst of this persecution, the true Gospel will be preached in all the world. As wickedness and evil triumph throughout the land, it will be easier for those who are called to see the truth of God’s word. God’s word is timeless and it is the embodiment of truth. It’s all we need to preach to win those who are being called by the Holy Spirit.

So, be encouraged as you see these things happening. I just means the coming of the Lord is close.

“Remember from where you have fallen” – Rev. 2:5

First Inaugural Address
In the City of New York

Thursday, April 30, 1789

“it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own, nor those of my fellow-citizens at large less than either. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency … since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” Continue reading

The Ground is Shifting

Transgenders

The concept of Transgender ism is much in the news today but what does God say about it? Jesus answers this question with a finality that should display the falseness of this concept.

“And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” – Matt. 19:4-6

Remembering our Foundations


King David asked a question that we need to ask again –

“If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” – Ps. 11:3

 In a time of attack upon our Republic from Socialists, Communists, and Progressives, we need to revisit our foundation principles. We have existed for over 200 years as a nation but, what was the foundation that allowed this? One of the earliest documents of those who originally came to found this country was written by John Winthrop, Pilgrim –

“We are a company,” he said, “… professing ourselves fellow members in Christ …. The end is to improve our lives and do more service to the Lord …. that ourselves and our posterity may be better preserved from the common corruptions in this world . … We must love brotherly without dissimulation; we must love one another with pure heart fervently. We shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all the people upon us.” – A Model of Christian Charity, John Winthrop

Deliverance or Disaster?

founding-fathers-quote

The United States is standing at the precipice, a tipping point, from which if it goes over it will likely never recover. It is not a financial or military tipping point, although they will certainly be effected but, it is a moral tipping point. Our Founding Father, George Washington prophesied about this point as he was inaugurated as our first President.

In fact, We have ‘disregarded the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven (God) has ordained’! We don’t even like to remind ourselves that such rules exist! We outlaw the 10 Commandments from being shown in public places, because it may offend. Well, who does it offend? I’ll tell you who – first Satan and his followers, and second those rioter-over-trumps-electionrebellious who don’t want to be reminded of their sin. We allow a public school system to train our most precious possessions against us and our historical culture and send them out to march and riot against our Constitution – and we pay the schools to do it! How stupid is that?

I probably do not need to remind you of the many ways we have disregarded God but, here are a few:

 

  1. Not only have we legalized divorce and remarriage, which God says He hates but, we call it ‘no fault’.  (Mal. 2:16)
  2. Legalize homosexuals and lesbians which is an abomination to God (Lev. 18:22, Rom. 1:26,27)
  3. Legalize abortion and selling of the baby’s body parts and pay those who do it! (Luke 17:2)
  4. Honor other Gods (Deut. 11:28)

Cali – the goddess of death

These are just a few, any one of which could bring God’s judgement upon a people or nation and we have done much more. But, the greatest danger is the falling away of the American Church because God will save a godless people if there are enough righteous people there, as we saw with Sodom in the Bible.  Do we have enough righteous people to save us? Here are some of the warnings Jesus sent to the church –

And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.” – Rev. 3:1

Many churches are just going through the motions but, there is no true life, no conviction of sinful habits or lifestyles. Remember, the church is not a building or an organization – it is people. You and the people you gather with to worship are the church. What about your church? When was the last time anyone went to the altar to repent of anything? Are homosexuals or adulterers comfortable in your church? Are liars or cheats comfortable in your church? They won’t be in heaven! Maybe your church is like the church of Sardis – dead, in need of a move of the Holy Spirit which will bring repentance.

Christian ApostacyThen there are those like the Loadocean Church giving lip service to a mighty God but not obeying His commands. They are OK with women pastors, even though God’s word is against them. They march to honor women’s rights to an abortion but will not speak publicly for God. They do not want to offend anyone so, they say there are many ways to God and Islam is just as good as Christianity. They stand for nothing, so as a result they fall for anything. To them “I’m OK, your OK” and “Judge not lest you be judged” are good statements. As a result, they cannot discern between good and evil and will be fooled by the spirit of Antichrist.

And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” – Rev. 3:14-16

The Harlot Church – Rev. 17:3

Can such churches as these bring us back from the precipice? I think not. I see this church already riding the Beast of Revelation and most of the members in it don’t even realize their condition. Jesus said of it –

 

“—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.” – Rev. 3:17,18

Jesus had but one message to those in such churches –

“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.” – Rev. 18:4

We in the United States are in a dangerous condition and darkness has almost enveloped the nation. England, who was once a beacon of light for the Gospel, has fallen and preaching the Bible now can land you in jail. Remember, only Christians have been given light that can drive back the darkness but, they must choose to not hide it under a bushel! If you are in such a church as described above – get out. Find a church or fellowship that honors God’s word – all of it. Let the Holy Spirit search your heart for any wicked thought and then repent. Resolve to be a soldier for Christ. Now is the time to work before the time comes when no man can work as Jesus said –

“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.” – John 9:4

This is the time when Isaiah’s prophecy is in force –

“Arise, shine;  For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” – Isa. 60:1,2

The Forgotten Sign of the Times.

left wing agenda“A Psalm of David.

To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.” – Ps. 25:1-4

Remember the story of Lot in Sodom? God was about to judge Sodom because of their wickedness, which went much further than just sodomy. But, as Abraham interceded with God, it was determined that if God could find even 10 righteous people there, He would not judge it. Now most know the result of those negotiations but, I want to draw your attention to another aspect of the story and that is the value of righteous people.  Sodom could have been saved if just 10 righteous people could have been found!
