Welcome To Another Great LORD’S Day Courtesy Of God!!!!
A Great Storm Is Brewing!
This may sound more like a Soapbox than a Message! Please take the time to read it!
Our faith is being attacked from every direction! The government, the atheist, the ACLU, and every heathen organization you can think of! We have churches giving up crucial parts of their Christian faith, so they can fit into the Worlds view of how people should act and live. We actually have churches in this country, who have bars in their church basements! They use the excuse, that this will bring in the lost, who would not normally attend church! We have churches that are made up entirely of homosexuals, this includes the preacher!
We are giving up a little more of our faith each and every day! We are just giving away our religious freedom! When you give something away, how often do you get it back? The answer is NEVER! Every time we give in and make concessions to this ungodly world, we loose them forever! We are just sitting back and watching this Satan controlled world take away what GOD has given us! Every time we give in, every time we let them win, we loose another piece, another crucial part of our religious freedoms forever! The world will never let us have it back!
They have taken GOD out of our schools! They have taken GOD out of our government (which by the way was founded for religious freedom)! They have taken GOD out of our businesses! They have taken GOD out of almost every place in America! The only thing really left, is our churches! And they are already under fire!
Did you know that there have been bills sent to every legislative branch in our government, proposing to make it illegal to worship God in our homes! So far, these have not been allowed to be voted on, or even considered! But listen up, the winds are shifting in that direction! There may come a time, possibly in our lifetime, that we will have to do like some of the 3rd world countries! We may have to hide our Bibles and hold secret meetings to worship GOD! Now I know that there are a lot of you reading this that are saying to yourself, this guys crazy! Think back 30 years! Look what we have lost in those 30 years! Then tell me I’m crazy!
Deep corruption is eating away at every level of American society like cancer. We can see this in our families, we can see this in our businesses, and we can especially see this in our government. We have the highest rate of divorce in the world, we have the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the world, we have the highest rate of obesity in the world, and nobody has higher rates of cancer, heart disease and diabetes than we do. The suicide rate is soaring and our economy is falling apart. Meanwhile, our politicians seem absolutely clueless and we have piled up the biggest mountain of debt that the world has ever seen.
Today, the U.S. ranks only 51st in the world for life expectancy even though we spend far more on health care than anyone else on the planet does. Sadly, our health care system has become a giant money making scam that is not really concerned about whether most of us live or die.
The LORD is slowly but steadily being expelled from every public venue. It started in the public schools, and has spread to public places, court houses, our coins, our pledge of allegiance, and on and on to the point where today we are fighting battles about what we can even say in the church! It is no longer just about the separation of church and state but rather the separation of America from the GOD Who founded her and has so blessed her!
America has defiled the land.
We’ve done this in many ways, but perhaps the #1 way is found in the spilled blood of aborted babies.
GOD took away His glory from His people Israel when they did such things. And I believe He is in the process of removing Himself from the good old USA. We need a national revival. We need a moral and spiritual awakening. I don’t know what it’s gonna take. What do we know about the generation of Israel that entered into the Promised Land? Under Joshua, Israel was given, by GOD victory after victory. Walls came tumbling down, and kings were subdued. They won victories they never could have apart from the power of GOD.
And that’s just how it is with America. Go back to our first war, the Revolutionary War. Britain had more men, more money, better machinery…it was a truly a David and Goliath scenario but GOD was on our side and we won!
Patrick Henry gave the speech which sparked the revolution in 1775. He said, “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty GOD! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death!”
It was ’game on.’ And we won that war, and George Washington became our first president. When he took office he placed his hand on the Holy Bible. He finished taking the oath and kissed the Bible. His first official act was to lead the entire congress in a 2 hour worship session. I wonder what the ACLU would say about that if they were around during the Revolutionary War!
In one of his inaugural addresses George Washington said, “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people 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.” In plain English he said, it is GOD Who got us this far, and we had better not forget it!
Our founding fathers made it abundantly clear that this land was founded on GOD and the Bible. The Bible was the first and only book to be used in public schools for years.
Fox News took a survey of Americans who do not attend church on a regular basis, most Americans said there is no such thing as absolute truth. They said that right and wrong are not clear…what is wrong for you is not necessarily wrong for me. If that doesn’t scare you, consider the fact that they did the same survey in Evangelical Churches, and among Sunday morning attendees, 52% said the same thing! Imagine, Christians saying there’s no black and white, right and wrong! They said that the Bible is just a guideline, not meant to be followed, just more or less suggestions as to how we should live, what is a sin to you, may not be a sin to me!
We are giving in more and more everyday, to the immorality of the world! Many parents are surrendering in the area of sexual promiscuity. They throw up their hands and say, well, you’re not gonna be good, so just be careful. Here, wear protection. Now what message does that send to a young person? We are putting ambulances at the bottom of the cliff when we are supposed to be putting fences at the edge of the cliff to prevent the accident in the first place! And we wonder why the abortion rate is out of this world! Most Americans are under the mistaken conception, that Abortion is not a sin! It’s not only a Sin, it’s MURDER!
It’s time we get back to confronting our culture with the truth of GOD and His Word. Young people, GOD wants you to be pure and chaste. He wants you to be a virgin when you get married, not passed around like a bottle of Gatorade in a football huddle! We’ve become afraid of the confrontation, and way too sensitive about how we might offend someone who has gone too far. Well, whom shall I offend? Man, or GOD? The truth is offensive, but it is our only hope.
We’ve become so politically correct about homosexuality that it has become wrong to say anything about it. We say we personally are against it, but leave it as a personal decision and ok in our society in spite of what GOD says and in spite of what always happens to a society when they go that route. And we give them more than just equal status, but exalted status! They have more rights in this country than we as Christians will ever have! The cry of our day is, There’s nothing wrong with being gay. What they do is their business. I don’t see why they couldn’t be married or adopting children. And they should have rights of their own, after all, they most often make good neighbors…why can’t we all just get along? I’ll tell you why we can’t get along, GOD says they are an abomination and will be our downfall as a society. If we tolerate it we are begging for His judgment. He’s done it before, and He May Just do it again! Remember Sodom and Gomorrah?
What about America today? Legalized gambling, the lottery, and such things. Look at the gain we can find from something that many consider only to be bad. Why, we’ll build roads and schools, and generate lots of tax dollars! Those tax dollars are really being used to line the pockets of the very politicians who voted it in the first place! Isn’t it sad that our government has turned itself into a pimp! Think about it. A pimp puts women on street corners to lure in men, in order that he, the pimp, might profit from their vice. And our government now encourages its citizens to participate in a vice so they can profit. They say, look at the revenue we can generate! America, It’s time we stop saying look at what we can gain and start asking, what we are loosing by doing the things we are doing!
If you see your child doing something wrong, and you know he saw you watching, if you just let it go and don’t chastise him for doing what was wrong, you just told him it was right! That’s what is wrong in this country today!
The Rock we call Religious Freedom is being chipped away, bit by bit! One day we are going to wake up and find that that Rock has been ground to dust, and the winds of Adversity has blown it away!
Wake Up America! The storm is no longer brewing in the distance, it’s here! And it is already at Hurricane Force!
WE NEED TO BE IN CONSTANT PRAYER FOR GOD TO BRING REVIVAL TO THIS ONCE GREAT NATION! (And Yes I Said Once)
MAY GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! AND MAY GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU!
I got a little long winded this morning! My Apologies!
Have a Truly Blessed Day!
