America's Future Social Media


It seems to me, as I pray for the pastors in Houston this week, the verse that comes to mind is Eph. 4 – “speak the truth in love.” Of course, we know that Jesus was ALWAYS the perfect balance of these two. “When you speak, speak the truth … and always speak the truth in love.” But, as followers of Jesus Christ as our Lord … we cannot IGNORE this most recent outbreak of an abominable lifestyle and expect it to just go away. When you study SODOMY in history and more specifically in scripture, you find that these people DO NOT merely wish “to be left alone,” to live in their choices. No indeed, they, by nature become aggressive, militant, self-promoting, & “in your face” determined that you must accept & approve of their sinful habits, which of course, if we are to be true to the Bible and TRUTH … we cannot! They have twisted and perverted TRUTH to justify their sin & want you to tell them … “that’s okay!” You simply CANNOT DO THIS! As the scriptures state in a declaration of FINALITY, “Let God be true and every man a liar.” In other words, TRUTH MUST WIN OUT! And if anyone is going to change, it must be US as human beings … not God, doing the changing.

What have they,  the sodomites – (some call them “Gay,” there is nothing gay about their lifestyle) done with TRUTH? First the truth was SUPPRESSED (Rom.1:18), then it was DENIED (Rom.1:19-22), then they CHANGED it into a lie (Rom.1:25), then all along the way of course they DISOBEYED it (Rom.2:8). Paul gives us our answer as TRUE BELIEVERS how to respond to this: “the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be GENTLE unto all men, apt (ready) to teach, patient (forbearing), in meekness instructing those THAT OPPOSE THEMSELVES; IF God peradventure will give them REPENTANCE to the ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH; and that they may RECOVER THEMSELVES out of the snare of the devil, who are TAKEN CAPTIVE by him AT HIS WILL.  (II Tim. 2:24-26)

This entire downward spiral begins with how an individual, then a community, then a country responds to God’s TRUTH! I don’t expect sodomites to understand what I’ve written here (which of course is just the Word of God in plain and simple words), but my great concern is for professing followers of Christ who are believing a lie & rejecting the truth about God’s view of this abominable act. We don’t need another “Panel Discussion” on this sin, we just need a clarion call from the pulpits of our land, and then a response of loving confrontation and sharing of the gospel (good news) of forgiveness & peace being available! REPENTANCE IS REQUIRED in order for this issue to CHANGE … (but somehow, I don’t see God being the one who has to change His mind on sodomy … that is NOT going to happen). God has spoken … mercy, grace & salvation are available to everyone who repents and believes the gospel … but the lifestyle MUST be stopped. You cannot “hold on to your sin” and receive salvation at the same time. As Jesus told the woman taken in adultery (Jn.8:11) … “GO … and SIN NO MORE.”


America's Future

Now That We’re Past the Election … Now What?

Many people will not care for my “bottom line” assessment of this election, and are of course free to disagree. I TOTALLY believe in the Sovereignty of God in placing leaders over us & that God indeed “rules in the affairs of men.” I never felt or believed that Mitt Romney was our “answer,” only that perhaps he might be ‘a reprieve’ from the downward spiral we as a nation have been gaining speed on in the last 4 years. It was not meant to be. Prayerfully, we all individually did all we could to open the door for that change, should God decide to grant it – I know I did. God did not grant it, it did not happen, so we move on. There is, however, one point which the numbers are showing us already in the early voting returns concerning a statement made by Mitt Romney and exploited by the liberal news media to blast him, which has proven to be true. When Romney said, “47% of the voters are already in his back pocket” (or something to that effect) he was right! The numbers show that the president received 11% higher of single women votes (Romney won the married women vote), 44% higher of the Hispanic vote & 88% higher of the African American vote. Further evidence that you can “buy” votes … under Obama’s first 3 1/2 years in office, Welfare went up 32% & Food Stamps increased 71%. As our Founding Fathers warned us (Alexander Hamilton & Thomas Jefferson), they said “when the Public Treasury becomes the Public Trough, we (the voting populace) will only send to the government people who will promise to bring back to us the bigger piece of the pie.” That is what returned him to office … and these ARE the groups receiving the largest entitlement checks (don’t call me “racist” or “uncaring” for that statement … check the facts, you will see it is true). I am not saying some of these people do not need help in this present economic system … just saying, like it or not … Romney spoke the truth. President Obama “bought” a second term.

But what do we do now … the election is now history.  With the election now behind us, we  must also continue to warn against anti-Christ philosophy and godless laws & direction for our country. As long as that freedom is still there, then we must, by God’s grace, continue to warn, to discern, to point out and speak the truth, as we see it revealed in scripture. TRUTH IS THE ISSUE HERE. With deceit, lies, false teaching, narcissistic agendas all coming from the heart of men, as Jesus told us they do, they MUST continue to be exposed & shown for what they are. That is … we should and must, as long as the freedom of speech to expose godless agendas still exists in America. This is NOT a “hate” speech, this has nothing to do with race, I do not blame, as a person, Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is merely the product of a society that has systematically rejected God’s way of thinking over the last 50+ years in an education system based on the religion of Secular Humanism. Our president thinks as he does because of an intellectual reasoning process that was inevitable, once you take God as the Creator out of the picture. Our president is a master deceiver and that is the most polite way I know of to tell you he is a liar. Again, we have watched politicians for the last year ‘tippy-toe’ their way around that word, yet all the time, knowing that he has been caught in so many … yet he’s found a way to avoid them, long enough to get re-elected. If men of Congress have enough “guts” to bring them up again, they will eventually come out. Medicare theft (716 billion $’s), being able to “keep your own healthcare” (they can’t allow this and still fund Obamacare), abortion on demand paid for by us (Are you as a Christian going to allow this to pass?), “Gay” marriage legalized, 2nd Amendment rights restricted, higher energy prices, larger indebtedness – collapsing our economy, stimulus money GONE in mid-air because of being invested heavily in NOW bankrupt “Green Energy” initiatives, Bengazi cover-up, on and on the list goes. This IS and has been his agenda from the git-go. To systematically dismantle America as you & I have known her. [I do not say this to dishonor the position of the President. We believe and follow the scriptures … Fear God & Honor the King (that is the position God has placed over us in authority). I am merely stating that we have not yet witnessed changes that are already set in place to happen, shortly after the first of the year. Legislation already signed into law, that will begin to affect us as Americans. You will feel it in your tax increase, your health costs, & at the pump, not to mention a speedier moral collapse.]

The enactment of socialized medicine (Obama-care) in and of itself will not only bankrupt us, it will bring about “selective disqualification” for surgery & treatments that would lengthen the lives of those inevitably on a pathway toward imminent death. In other words, the “Health czars’ will decide if you are worth spending the time and resources on to extend your life. This will bring about more abortions & ‘justify’ euthanasia. [I encourage you again, if you have not read Dr. Erwin Lutzer’s book, “When a Nation Forgets God,” (7 Lessons we must learn from Nazi Germany) … you MUST get it and read it. He has done a masterful job of exposing history and teaching us what to look for in America as we plunge further down the slippery slope away from God.]

These are just, as the analogy goes, “the tip of the iceberg.” This election confirms the judgment of God on our nation. Spiritually, socially, politically, militarily, naturally (physical disasters), morally, economically – God’s judgment is upon us. I am not surprised that it is happening, only surprised it hasn’t happened sooner … actually it’s been growing for decades now. If you do not recognize this as the judgment of God, that failure to “see it” is actually a form of God’s judgment … when believers become desensitized to sin all around them. when we begin to call evil – good, darkness – light. (Isa. 5:20-23)  You cannot spend your way OUT of this national indebtedness by simply printing more money without capital backing. Our economic “house of cards” is coming down. I am not, however, a doomsday pessimist declaring the end of the world … not yet! The last Great Awakening of 1857 came as a result of a collapse of our economic system … and we are definitely heading that way again. It has been true in America’s past history, that IT TAKES SOMETHING  “EARTH SHATTERING” TO BRING GOD’S PEOPLE TO THEIR KNEES. God’s answer hasn’t changed (and it’s not going to). II Chr. 7:13,14 is still our answer, and though it was spoken to a specific group of His selected people, the principles of how He deals with His people throughout history still applies today. The remaining question to be answered is this … will WE HUMBLE OURSELVES, will we PRAY, will we SEEK GOD’S FACE (not His hand) and will we TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS?

May I end with this prayer for revival taken from Isaiah 64:

Isa 64:1-9  Oh that You would rend the heavens, that You would COME DOWN, that the mountains might flow down at Your presence, as when the melting fire burns, the fire causes the waters to boil, TO MAKE YOUR NAME KNOWN to Your adversaries, that the nations may TREMBLE AT YOUR PRESENCE! When You did awesome things which we did not look for, You came down, the mountains flowed down at Your presence.

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O God, beside You, what God has prepared for him that waits for Him. You meet him that rejoices and works righteousness, THOSE THAT REMEMBER YOU IN YOUR WAYS: behold, You are filled with wrath; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and WE SHALL BE SAVED. But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And THERE IS NONE THAT CALLS UPON YOUR NAME, that STIRS HIMSELF UP to TAKE HOLD OF YOU: for YOU HAVE HID YOUR FACE from us, and have consumed us, because of our iniquities.

But now, O LORD, You are our father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and we all are the work of Your hand. Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: BEHOLD … SEE … WE BEG OF YOU, WE ARE ALL YOUR PEOPLE!

Please dear people let’s cry out to God & ask Him to do “exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think!” God is able!
