God of the Living

Jesus never did a Funeral he is God of the Living because he has given all who come to know him as Lord and Savior eternal life in the precincts of Heaven. We live in a world steeped in sin, a people who want only to fill a void in their heart. Drugs, alcohol, sexual pleasures, none of these will fill that void. Money, you can’t take it with you into eternity. Jesus offers what Satan cannot give, his fate is sealed, you as long as you are still alive, can choose eternal life in heaven, or, eternal darkness in the lake of fire. Please listen to what I say in the video. I implore any who hear to act if you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord. If you think this world is hard, it is going to be much worse! Choose Christ or choose Hell!



Hatred against Christians

It seems that the Democrat Party really hates Christians because they take every opportunity to rid our society of all references to Christ, the Cross, and of course our belief in the sanctity of life. In the book of Matthew, there is a conversation between Jesus and a Pharisee.

Mat 22:36-40 ESV  “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”  (37)  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  (38)  This is the great and first commandment.  (39)  And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  (40)  On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Now Jesus has just said something that I think a lot of the people in the Democrat Party have forgotten, I say this because I do not see a whole lot of love between them and those of us who are citizens of this nation. What has transpired this past couple of weeks has been nothing short of horrifying. Insane people taking innocent lives with unspeakable violence. that goes without saying a terrible act. What followed, however, was even worse simply because the Democrat Party especially those running for President blamed the President of the United States for the violence. Some even went so far as to say he was directly responsible, as if, he had ordered the death of all those people.

This President has worked to be the President of all the people, not just some of them. He has also acted in ways that work to preserve the reality of the Republic. Sanctity of life, love of country, reverence for the Constitution. He has worked to change laws where he could and to mitigate wrongs, such as a life sentence for a minor drug conviction. Yet we hear from the Democrat Party, that he hates blacks, Hispanics, women, and Muslims. Yet he has not acted in any way against any of these groups. Yes, he has limited immigration from certain countries, yet those countries don’t have any way to tell you who is or is not one of their citizens. He has tried to block terrorists from using the chaos in the middle east to gain entry into our nation.

As for as being against blacks, women or any other group, where is the evidence of that? Each of the groups in our nation now have full employment and are enjoying the fruits of their labors. As for Muslims, I have not seen any animosity by this President against this group, I have seen him calling out Muslims who have been attacking our nation, and himself, but then he does that to others as well.

So, to get back to the main topic, hatred against Christians in our nation. I find it very difficult to see why the Democrat Party hates God, the people in the House of Representatives, have done away with “so help me God” in the swearing in ceremonies, which of course is another indication of wanting to get God out of the way of what they are looking to accomplish. They seem to want dead babies, even after birth in some states now. This nation was founded by men who believed that God was an integral part of their lives. We find Jefferson inviting clergy to come to the Capitol to bring the word on Sunday mornings. The Congress even funded the publication of bibles to bring to the Indians to show them about God and to perhaps bring some to Jesus.

Now here we are today, the Democrats are working to remove God from everywhere they can, from the walls of State and City buildings, school buildings, even many courthouses. I cannot understand why that is, Jesus said that we are to love our neighbor as ourself and yet here we find hatred for over 50% of our nation. President Obama talked about people who cling to their guns and their Bibles. Hillary Clinton called us deplorables, as well as homophobes, and other names. There are many who are against homosexual persons, but we don’t hate them, we see them as in need of Jesus just as we ourselves have needed Jesus Christ to show us how to live.

There is evil in this land, and as a Christian man, I will fight evil with all my strength. I believe that the hatred I see in our land is evil, and is spawned by Satan to destroy our nation. Just as I look on socialism as an evil and vile type of violence against the people of this great nation. We fought the cold war to end the scourge of socialism in our world. We fought WW II to end the socialist nations of the Axis in Europe. Germany and Italy were both socialist nations, just as Russia was.

Today this evil is raising its ugly head in Russia, China and other places in our world. China is working to eradicate Christianity from their land, but making Churches take down crosses and rid themselves of Bibles, and worship the State. They are also imprisoning Muslims as well, in re-education camps.
So this is to be the future for those nations, and the Democrat Party is trying to make it the future for us in America. I see that if they win power in the House, Senate and the White House they will run roughshod over all of us.

Is God still blessing America?
June 20, 2019, 12:59 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

We sing the song “God Bless America” and I wonder how many actually know what it is all about, or if they even believe there is a God who will bless our nation. I find myself thinking that the God who has blessed our nation for over 200 years, really cannot bless us any longer simply because God cannot abide sin. I would ask you to hear the words of the Apostle Paul as he writes to the Church in Rome.

Rom 1:16-17 NKJV  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.  (17)  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”

Powerful words from this wonderful Apostle to the Gentiles, that is us of course, you and I are the Gentiles, we are not Jewish therefore we are the Greeks or Gentiles. Paul wants all to be ‘saved’ from sin and so he writes to the Church in Rome and tells them what is to come as time progresses, he also tells them why God cannot bless a people who practice sin as a way of life. Here is what Paul indicates are the things that will destroy nations and even empires. Just as an aside history tells us that these are the things that destroyed the Greek civilization, and later the Roman.

“Rom 1:26-32 NKJV  For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.  (27)  Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.  (28)  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  (29)  being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,  (30)  backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  (31)  undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;  (32)  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

This, of course, fits our society to a “T”, we can see these things all around us, we have the “Me too” movement showing the sexual immorality of our society, but we also have those who are haters and who will do anything they can to destroy rather than to build up. We have those who continue to kill human babies because they are an inconvenience, or they are not the right sex, or perhaps, they have a disease and so must be killed so they won’t suffer. We also have the violence of a place like Chicago with daily shootings and many deaths. Boasters, a wonderful word which notice, that it follows “proud” I see it in our politicians. There is of course much more to be seen and understood, there are those who are so proud of themselves that they will boast about their own greatness. One politician running for President has even stated that he was born for this.

God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their wickedness, he sent Israel into exile a number of times in history, the last one was for almost 2000 years. Israel is now again in the land that God had promised to Abraham, this says that it is almost time for the gentile world and the so called Christian religion to end and a time more terrible than even what we are experiencing today. Yet these things have been prophesied for a few thousand years, especially in the book of Daniel. We who profess to follow Jesus Christ as Lord, need to be concerned, not for what is to come, rather we are to be concerned for those who do not know Jesus as Lord.

Can God still bless this nation? I believe that the answer to this question is NO, simply because of how far we have gone into sin. The House of Representatives has now taken out the need for people to speak the oath of truth when testifying, or when becoming confirmed in office, “so help me God”. This next year I do believe that the Democrat Party will take God out of their platform. Can God bless a nation that celebrates the death of babies? In New York State when the bill passed to allow abortion up to the moment of birth, the politicians gave a standing ovation to the Governor after he signed the bill into law.

I know that some who read my blog will not agree with the things I have said in this issue, I also know that I need to get back into the habit of writing more often. If you have a comment please do write it. I do try to look for comments when I can. If you want to know more about Jesus Christ, let me know, I will be glad to have a conversation about this as well. Have a blessed day all you who read my words.

Man and Wife – God’s plan
May 8, 2019, 10:15 am
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

Gen 2:22-24 NKJV  “Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.  (23)  And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”  (24)  Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Man, a created being, and woman also a created being, become man and wife and it then says that this is God’s plan for men and women. God in his infinite wisdom created all that there is, including people. He set things in motion, and, made it clear that men and women were sexual beings, that were meant to join together in the marital bond and through the sexual act, procreate. They were to be God’s proxies in that they would create more human beings through the act of coitus.

Since God set this in motion, we are not to change the set that God has ordained. The Bible talks a lot about sexual immorality, mostly about sex outside of the marriage bond, and more about men with women other than their wife. It is also important that we understand, that concubines, or, other relationships which are sexual in nature are not in God’s plan. In other words, marriage between a man and a woman, is the plan, and as it says the man shall set up housekeeping with his wife, and it is supposed to be a forever bond.

In our society today, we find all sorts of relationships, we also see trio’s as well as homosexual matchups, and of course polygamy. None of these are acceptable in God’s eyes. The sad part of this world in which we live today, is, that the Church is also supportive of many of these relationships. One that I am aware of is a Lesbian married to her wife, and, is a bishop of the church. Male with male and woman with woman, these are not acceptable in or out of the Church. If we profess to follow Jesus Christ as Lord, then it behooves us to act as He would act in these situations. We must point out that God is not pleased with those who are living in sin, Heterosexual or, homosexual. The scriptures just talk about heterosexual sin more than homosexual sin, but, it is clear in the scripture that neither sin is acceptable to God.

Jesus talks about the wide gate and the narrow gate: Mat 7:13-14 NKJV  “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  (14)  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” What is meant here is that walking down that road that is easy will lead you into Hell and you will spend eternity with Satan and his angels in the lake of fire. The narrow gate is the difficult path that leads to heaven, and, eternal life in heaven with Jesus. It is difficult, because, the world in which we live hates those who will follow Christ, and work out their salvation by walking in his footsteps. Those who do so will stumble and even fall, but, Jesus is there with you and will help you get back on that narrow path.

Your friends and relatives who do not know, do not have a relationship with Jesus, will work hard to discourage you. They will do all in their power to get you back on that wide highway that leads to destruction. How many people on that wide road are still searching for the million dollars, the mansion, the big car, and all the other things that are supposed to bring happiness? How many are actually happy with all the things in life? Most keep on wanting more, because, what they have is never enough to fill that void in their lives. The void can only be filled by the presence of God, never by material things.

If you are reading this and you do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior, please contact me, and let us have a conversation. Your eternity depends upon your acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. If you do not know him, or if you have rejected him, then your eternity will be spent in hell. If you do have a relationship with Him, then heaven is your destination.

The Gospel or Socialism
January 24, 2019, 3:37 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

The Gospel of Jesus Christ, is that which sets man on a path to heaven, Socialism sets one on a path to Hell. The teaching of Jesus Christ, is that we are to show love not hate toward our fellow man. The teaching of socialism is that we are to hold down all who disagree with our teaching, and if they will not go along with our rhetoric, we destroy them. Socialism is that which brought us Communism, Nazism,and other forms of hatred for anything that could not be controlled by itself.

Let us look at The Gospel first. What does it teach us about living our lives? First it says that if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, then you are to be one who loves your brothers and sisters in the faith. It also says that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind, then to love our neighbor as our-self. That last one is pretty hard to do sometimes, especially when that neighbor might just want to slit my throat because he or she considers me to be an infidel. Pretty hard to turn the other cheek when your head is no longer attached to your body. In the early church, Christians used to help their neighbors, when there was someone sick, they would go with food and pray and anoint and whatever else might ease their suffering.

We are also told to visit the sick, the prisoner, and others who have a need to hear the gospel that says, Jesus is the way, truth and life, the only way to healing of your soul. He is the way to eternal life in heaven.

OK lets take a look at the alternative. The socialists in New York State have just passed a law that says it is OK to kill your baby for any reason at any time up to the point of actual birth. Socialism brought us Hitler, killer of over ten million people, his own and others. Socialism gave us Stalin, killer of over 60 million people, Mao killer of untold millions of Chinese. In this country it has brought us Planned Parenthood, an organization that was responsible for killing over 300,000 babies in 2018, and over 60 million since its inception. They have actually killed more people than Stalin.

Socialism brought us Castro in Cuba, a man responsible for Hundreds of Thousands of deaths, Maduro in Venezuela, don’t know his death toll yet, but he has raped his country of its assets and, his people some of which have starved to death, because there is no food in any of the stores. He took over for Chavez, also responsible for death and destruction in that country.

I must also say that the enmity of the world against Christians has caused millions of deaths as well. In the first 10 years of this century, already there have been more Christians murdered in the name of Islam than in all the centuries before this one. Yet it is alright for someone who practices this religion of “peace” to talk about our President as a Mother F***** and she threatens to impeach him. It is also alright for our politicians to jump on the bandwagon and wish that some high school kids wearing MAGA hats and their parents would jump into a fire and die. This is socialism as its finest. Oh then we have a group who says it is anti-fascist, and goes about beating people up and shouting down any hope for discourse. Fascism is Socialism by another name and these people are the Socialist/Fascist brown shirts of this era. Do not be fooled by the rhetoric, they are indeed fascist/socialist brown shirts of Hitler or black shirts of Mussolini.

So which one do you want to lead our nation? Socialism or Christianity? Tell me your preference, let us have a conversation on this topic.

I Am Not Ashamed of the Gospel
October 23, 2018, 12:18 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: ,

In the summer of 386, a young man wept in the backyard of a friend. He knew that his life of sin and rebellion against God was killing him, leaving him empty; but he just couldn’t find the strength to make a final, real decision for Jesus Christ. As he sat, he heard some children playing a game and they called out to each other these words: “Take up and read! Take up and read!” Thinking God had a message to him through the words of the children, he picked up a scroll laying nearby opened it and began to read: not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires (Rom_13:13-14). He didn’t read any further; he didn’t have to. Through the power of God’s word, Augustine had the faith to entrust his whole life to Jesus Christ at that moment.
Rom 1:1 NKJV  Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God.

In this letter of Paul to the Church at Rome, there is a tremendous concentration on God, unlike other letters that Paul wrote, this one is all about God and what God wants for the Church. The word God appears 153 times in this letter, Christ appears only 65 times, this letter has much to do with what God wants from you and I today, as much as it did for the Church of Paul’s day.
Paul was concerned about being able to get to Rome when he wrote this letter. He was in Corinth and getting ready to go to Jerusalem and had been warned of the trials he would suffer there.

Paul now introduces his gospel message to the Church at Rome.
Rom 1:2-6 NKJV  which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures,  (3)  concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,  (4)  and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.  (5)  Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,  (6)  among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ;

Paul was not bringing something new, this gospel was from the very beginning God’s message to the world, they just got tied up with the law, and forgot the rest of the word that God had given them through the prophets. Sounds like today, people always looking for the next new thing. Right now people are looking to the new I Pad, and I Phone and I Watch, or the newest version of Android or Windows, on and on. Here is just one prophets word that spoke of how God wanted his people to be in the world. Hab 2:4 NKJV  “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.” These are things that had been forgotten in the world that Paul lived in.

He was a Pharisee which translated means one set apart. He had been set apart to the law, now he was set apart for the gospel, the good news of God’s salvation for all people everywhere.

Paul points out that His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is God in that he uses a term in the Greek which is translated Yahweh, which is the name of God. Next in verse 5 we see that Paul in speaking of his own ministry says: “we have received grace and apostleship”. First and foremost, this gave Paul and those who followed him obedience to the faith, and therefore ability to deliver to all the world the word of the Lord God which brings eternal life.

In verse 6 we come to the crux of the matter, you and I are the called of Christ, we are the Church today, just as those in Rome were the Church of Paul’s day. Now what does that mean for you and I today? First and foremost it means salvation, it means we are now children of God through the grace of God in the death and resurrection of Christ.
Now, what do we do with our salvation? Rom 1:16-17 NKJV  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.  (17)  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH’.” This verse Romans 1:17 struck a Monk right in his heart: “In August of 1513, a monk lectured on the book of Psalms in a seminary, but his inner life was nothing but turmoil. In his studies, he came across Psa_31:1 : In Thy righteousness deliver me. The passage confused him; how could God’s righteousness do anything but condemn him to Hell as a righteous punishment for his sins? Luther kept thinking about Rom_1:17, which says that in the gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, “He who through faith is righteous shall live” (Hab_2:4). The monk went on to say: “Night and day I pondered until . . . I grasped the truth that the righteousness of God is that righteousness whereby, through grace and sheer mercy, he justifies us by faith. Therefore I felt myself to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise . . . This passage of Paul became to me a gateway into heaven.” Martin Luther was born again, and the reformation began in his heart.”

Luther believed in the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ and the salvation that comes through believing in him, and his righteousness is in us through the person of the Holy Spirit which is given when we confess our sin and ask Jesus to cleanse us and make us new. That message is still true today, it is the good news that we have received in our lives today. Yet our friends and neighbors around us, may not believe and they cannot be saved if they do not believe in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we who have been called, we who have answered the call and become sons and daughters of almighty God through his Mercy and grace, are called to deliver the gospel to those who need to hear it. Not that we can save anybody, but that the gospel will bring folks into the presence of God and he will open their hearts and minds to be saved. The person who has come into that place where they can do 1 of 2 things. Accept Jesus Christ as Lord, or say no and continue on to hell.

In May of 1738, a failed minister and missionary went unwillingly to a small Bible study where someone read aloud from Martin Luther’s commentary on Romans. As the failed missionary said later: “while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for my salvation, and an assurance was given me that he had taken my sins away, even mine.” John Wesley was saved that night in London. Wesley went on to become an evangelist who preached the gospel outside and inside, sometimes from a rock in a quarry, and sometimes from the pulpit in a church.

No matter where he went he preached, he was pelted with rotten tomatoes, and rocks, but he would not shut up. Many souls were saved by John Wesley and his preaching, because his soul belonged to God and no longer to a church or a belief system other than the belief that Jesus was God and Lord, and his grace was sufficient for salvation. If your heart has been warmed, if you have received the grace and mercy of God then you too have a calling, just as Wesley, Augustine, and Luther.

All who have become followers of the way of Christ, have also the call upon them to reach out to others. Jesus told his followers that they were to be his witnesses in Jerusalem, Samaria and in all the world. We live in that part of the world that he was talking about and we have the calling upon our lives to deliver the gospel to others that they too might be saved.

Spurgeon had this to say:
“I do not suppose that Paul guessed that he would be sent there at the government expense, but he was. The Roman Empire had to find a ship for him, and a fit escort for him, too; and he entered the city as an ambassador in bonds. When our hearts are set on a thing, and we pray for it, God may grant us the blessing; but, it may be, in a way that we never looked for. You shall go to Rome, Paul; but you shall go in chains.”

Our way may be easy, or it may be difficult, but as long as it is what God has called us to, we will have what we need to endure. Paul was called to the task of delivering the word no matter his circumstance. Today we find many who are doing likewise. Many of them have died, many have been imprisoned and tortured, yet, lived to tell the tale.

We in the United States are still able to worship and pray and read our Bibles, yet, there are signs that this is coming upon tough times, that our churches and our freedoms, may be lost as the battles continue in our nation. More and more people have decided that God is not real, that God is just a figment of our imagination and is no longer needed in our nation. One of our political parties even voted to take God out of their party platform. They did put him back, but I wonder for how long.

Satan is alive and well in this nation as well as in the world, right now he is working to destroy Christianity and Judaism. There is a work afoot that wishes to make a one world religion, under the auspices of the U.N. Or some other world government. There are plenty of people who relish this oncoming change in our nation and world. We see our institutions crumbling under the onslaught of Socialism, it has permeated our institutions of higher learning, and now our governmental institutions. Hatred for all things in disagreement with this idea is running rampant in many quarters.

Paul in his letter, tells the people of Rome that God has given the sinners who refuse to repent, over to their sin. It has taken a long time to become obvious but it is now running rampant in our nation. Pornography, same sex marriage, human trafficking, and other things that were unthinkable just 50 years ago. Now we have this caravan of people from central America, stopped for now at the southern Border of Mexico, but there are 4 or 5 thousand of these people, and the country they just passed through, Guatemala reports that they arrested 150 Isis terrorists in the crowds apparently heading for the U. S. A.

This does not bode well for Mexico or ourselves if they break through and get here on our Southern Border will there be other caravans to follow? Satan is working to destroy not to build up. But we serve a risen Lord, God who is creator and sustainer.

We are called to make him known to our time and our place. Let us not be ashamed of the Gospel, let us speak of our love of God and of his love for us, of his grace and mercy. Of his healing power to heal our souls and our lives if we will but allow him to come in to our lives and help us to be all we can be in his grace.

Awakening?
April 21, 2018, 10:55 am
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , , ,

In the Bible we find these words: 2Ch 7:14 ESV  if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

In the last 50 years, our nation has gone from a nation of people who recognized that there was a God, that Jesus Christ had lived and died that people could come before the throne of grace and be forgiven for their sins. Now our land is full of hate for this or that group, hate for authority, hate for – you name it, killing is a pastime for many in our society. Gangs run rampant in many parts of our nation, and of course our political institutions are increasingly impotent.

In the history of our nation, many revivals have come and changed the course of our nation. Some have been called Awakenings, and they have swept across the land. As people were caught up in these revivals, our nation moved in different directions, we were people of Christ – Christians if you will. However, today, we have slid into an abyss of immorality, degradation, and hatred for Christ. We no longer see Churches growing, we see them in decline. We also see many denominations deciding that they will become relevant by becoming worldly. The United Methodist Church, has a married Lesbian Bishop, married of course to another Lesbian. The high court of the Church found that she could not be a bishop, and ordered her removal, the jurisdiction she is serving in said NO. The UMC now has given in to that jurisdiction and they continue their slide into apostasy. Of course this is not new, it is a part of the growing apostasy within the mainline denominations. All of them now celebrate abortion as something to be blessed by many of the pastors and even bishops, as well as homosexuality. The Episcopal has a “gay” Bishop.

So our society will not condemn Muslim Jihadists who kill and maim innocent people, but will claim that Christians need to shut up and do as hollywood directs. Even the Vice President of the United States has been ridiculed for believing in Jesus Christ as Lord of his life, and that he also hears God speaking to him in his prayer time. I too have conversations with my Lord and Savior, and I for one am glad to hear Vice President Pence speak of his prayer time conversations with the Lord.

In Psalm 85 the psalmist says this: Psa 85:6 ESV  Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? This should be the cry of those of us who still believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. An Awakening or Revival is sorely needed in this time of chaos. A time when children can walk out of school and parents and teachers and Lawyers think it is just fine for them to protest against, whatever they want to protest. These kids are being used by those who hate, the NRA, or the Police, or, whatever the group de jour may be.

We also have a political party who is trying to sue the Republicans, the President, Julian Assange and Wikileaks, and of course the Russians, for somehow colluding with each other to defeat Hillary Clinton in the last Presidential election. Of course the evidence to the contrary is ignored. Hatred again has blinded them to their own culpability in the chaos into which our nation is plummeting.

It is time, if you are one who still believes that Jesus Christ is Lord, I pray that you will join me in praying for Awakening/Revival. If the people who are called by the name Christ are not willing to stand up and cry out to the Lord, then our nation is lost. As the Apostle Paul says: Eph 5:15-21 ESV  Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,  (16)  making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.  (17)  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  (18)  And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,  (19)  addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,  (20)  giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,  (21)  submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

And again as I started this missive: 2Ch 7:14 ESV if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. If we do nothing, then Satan wins and this country will become a wasteland, because our God will not be mocked. Gal 6:7-8 ESV  Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.  (8)  For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Choose today, will you too follow the ways of the world to your own damnation, or will you fall on your knees in supplication to our Lord and Savior, prayer for revival is sorely needed. Your choice, hell awaits all who will choose Satan over Christ.
