We are facing a war, a war of ideas and the outcome will be life changing for all of us. I do not elect to remain silent, even though many will think this war is too political and Christians should be only concerned with the spiritual and confined inside the four walls of their churches. That however, was not the attitude of early preachers. During the revolution well over 50% of sermons were political and they clearly showed the effect of the spiritual on the political. It has been a trick of the devil to mussel preachers of the Gospel by telling them to not endorse a political candidate or speak on controversial topics. So here goes! The Bible states – Continue reading
When John the Baptist came, he came preaching the message of repentance. He said he was –
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the LORD;
Make His paths straight.’ ” – Matt. 3:3
What did men have to repent for? Jesus Himself gives the answer –
“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” – John 3:19
Jesus was and is that Light and everyone who turns away from Him is a lover of the darkness, because their deeds are evil (opposed to God). While I could chronicle many wickedness’s being committed, I want to focus on the turn to the false god of Islam. While it likes to portray itself as a religion of peace, it is anything but peaceful. This following video will highlight its wickedness. Continue reading
Our nation was not founded to be a Christian nation but, it was founded upon Christian principles. Our founding fathers were all believers in God and for the most part in the Bible as His word to mankind. Here are quotes from the first three of our Presidents –
“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
—The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
“Now I will avow, that I then believe, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System.”
–John Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, excerpt from a letter to Thomas Jefferson
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…”
—Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.
“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
—The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385
There is much talk about the ‘invasion’ taking place on our southern border but not much talk about the Islamic invasion taking place in our country. Immigration is a fine thing but, it must be controlled and the immigrants must assimilate into our culture, not the other way around. Muslims do not intend to assimilate to American values, they intend to overcome them with population and change them to Islamic values. I read one article where an Islamic woman threatened to leave the country unless halal food was served, to which I thought – ‘There’s the door!’. The following video shows Muslims demanding Islamic holidays being observed by a school board.
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
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
