Who But The Ruler Of The Winds

clip_image001[4]It always fascinates me To read what the founding fathers and the people of old have to say about our country. Nearly every article that I read has always given God the Glory for the greatness of America. As I was reading this morning I found this article that was written by Ezra Stiles  He was the president of Yale College from 1778 to 1795. The article is a speech that was delivered to the governor and the general assembly of Connecticut in May 1783

 

In our lowest and most dangerous state, in 1776 and 1777, we sustained ourselves against the British Army of sixty thousand troops, commanded by the ablest generals Britain could procure throughout all Europe, with a naval force of twenty two thousand seamen in above eighty men of war.

Who but a Washington, inspired by Heaven, could have conceived the surprise move upon the enemy at Princeton, that Christmas eve when Washington and his army crossed the Delaware.

Who but the ruler of the winds could have delayed the British reinforcements by three months of contrary ocean winds at a critical point of the war.

Or what but “a providential miracle” at the last minute detected the treacherous scheme of the traitor Benedict Arnold, which would have delivered the American army including George Washington himself,, into the hands of the enemy.

Or the French role in the revolution, it is God who so ordered the balancing interests of nations as to produce an irresistible motive in the European maritime powers to take our part.

The United States are under peculiar obligations to become a holy people unto the Lord our God.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT - The True Christian

The true Christian is the true citizen, lofty of purpose, resolute in endeavor, ready for a hero’s deed, but never looking down on his task because it is cast in the day of small things; scornful of baseness, awake to his own duties as well as his rights, following the higher law with reverence, and in this world doing all that is in his power lies, so that when death comes he may feel that mankind is in some degree better because he lived.

Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed. We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals; all the standards toward which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves

From a statement by Theodore Roosevelt, twenty sixth president of The United States (1901 – 1909 ) The youngest man to hold the office.

Wolf, PA (my hometown)

It was eleven days before Christmas, around 9:38,

when twenty beautiful children stormed through Heaven's gate.

Their smiles were contagious and their laughter filled the air,

because they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

They were filled with so much joy they didn't know what to say,

and they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.

"Where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse;

"This is Heaven," declared a small boy, "and we are spending Christmas at God's house."

When what to their wondering eyes did appear,

but Jesus – their Savior – and the children gathered near.

He looked at them and smiled and they smiled just the same,

as He opened His arms and He called each by name.

In that moment was joy that only Heaven can bring,

when all those children flew into the arms of their King.

While they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,

one small girl turned and looked at His beautiful face.

He knew fully all the questions she had,

so He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."

He looked down on America so far below,

and saw all of the hurt, the sorrow and woe.

He closed His eyes and stretched out His hand,

"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!

May the country be delivered from the hands of fools,

and allow my presence back in the nation and back the schools."

He and the children stood up without a sound,

"Come now my children and let me show you around."

Excitement filled the space as some skipped and some ran,

all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.

I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,

"In the midst of the terrible darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

Strife Among Believers



As we read the story of Abram and Lot in the Bible we can see that they were surrounded by hostile neighbors who were not friendly, hospitable, or sympathetic, in any way, to them or their families. It would seem that in a situation like they were in, they would pull together and there would be no strife between them. This was not the case with Abram and Lot. Instead petty jealousy was tearing them and their families apart. Abram, because he was close to God, saw the strife and discord and decided to do something about it. Thank God for people that are close to Him and have a spiritual eye!

Abram had love in his heart for Lot and his family, so Abram gave first choice of which way to go to Lot. Notice how Abram turned away wrath with a soft answer, “I pray thee (please)”.  Abram, being the oldest, had the right to decide which way the both of them were going to go, but he gave that choice to his nephew, Lot. What a peace maker and man of God he was. As we read we can see that Lot’s heart was full of greed and he looked at the material things. He saw Sodom and the country where that city was located. He reasoned it would be a good place to live. His decision was a great choice from a worldly point of view. In such a place with all the good water and ground he would certainly thrive there and become prosperous.

This was all that Lot was looking for. God’s people must realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side. It will always bring heartache as it did Lot. How many Christians, today, jeopardize their souls for the prospect of worldly advantages and worldly gain? In today’s world to many Christians, churches, and denominations, often fight and bicker about small things with other Christians or other denominations, while the devil is at work all around them. Rivalries, arguments, contentions, and disagreements between God’s people can hinder God’s work. Some Christians will still strain at at a gnat and swallow a camel. These kind of things make a person self centered rather than love centered. Not only will strife hold the believer back it can open the door for other things as we can see as we read the story of Lot and his wife. It all happened with strife.

We can clearly see that Lot had choices. He selected the very best of the land, even though it meant living close to Sodom and all the evil that was in the city. This is the same problem that some Christians face today. Greed and the thought of living close to the world (Sodom) causes a lot of Christians not to focus on the true issues in todays world. The very issues of life. Lot had the paradise, the best of the green grass, much water, and happiness, such as it was, but Abram had the promise. The promise from God that something would be done for him. Lot was looking at the material things, but Abram was looking at spiritual things.

Spreading The Gospel


The purpose of Evangelism is to share and instruct in the Gospel and to witness to others about the Lord. Spreading the Gospel was one of the last commandments of our Lord before He went back to Heaven. We do not have to go all over the world spread the Gospel as some are called to do. Most people cannot afford that. All over America there is a great number of people that need to hear the Gospel. There are more people all over America, now, that know not God than ever before in the history of this country. We have almost become a godless nation. A nation without God or His Son. There are other countries around the world that now send missionaries to America to witness to a lost generation.

The church that I attend use to send hundreds of Bibles all over the world, including Russia, South America, The Middle East, Africa, and many other places in their native language but now our church put most of its resources in the spreading of the Gospel here in the United States while there is still time to do it. There is always people to see and places to go to spread the Gospel of Christ. This country did not turn its back on God over night and it will not come back to God over night.

We need rivals to spread all over this land like fire. We need anointed preachers that are not afraid to preach “What saith the Lord.” We do not need spineless preachers preaching a spineless Gospel in the churches of America!  If the preachers in this country would have preached hell fire once in a while along with the message of the cross we would have not seen the rise of so much sin in this country. The Word of God is like a two edge sword that can cut both ways. The Gospel message is not a prosperity message or one of just love or one of just sin.  It is a well rounded Gospel centered around the cross and the Lord Jesus Christ. A well rounded Gospel is needed today more than ever.

 Every Christian must recognize the sinful condition of America and remember that there is no forgiveness outside of the Grace of God. If we renew important things in our life such as, our driver’s license and wedding anniversaries, and close relationships on a regular basis, shouldn’t we also renew the most important relationship of all and that is our relationship with Jesus Christ?

Finding Grace In The Eyes Of God

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. (Genesis 6:5-8) NKJV

Noah Found Grace In The Eyes Of The Lord
During Noah’s time on this earth God had him build the ark for his safely and the safety of his family. Why? Because God was getting ready to withdraw his mercy from the earth, because the cup of evil was full to the rim and running over. The earth was filled with violence and corruption. Men would not believe God. Still the world in that day rejoiced in its pleasures and sins all the while the ark was growing larger as a witness to the coming judgement of our Lord. The people refused to believe in God. Perhaps the people thought of Noah as a narrow minded bigot or religious nut, because he would not give into the pleasures of sin with the rest of the people. Noah was a party of one. He believed and obeyed God. The flood came and destroyed everybody except Noah and the ones who went into the ark with him. Whoever was not shut in the ark, by the Lord, was shut out.
It was too late for those people just like it will soon be too late for the unsaved people of today, “they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterwards came also the other virgins saying. Lord, Lord, open to us” But it was too late. Today people reject God’s word just as bad as they did in Noah’s time. The violence and sin was really bad at Noah’s time but what is it now? What will it be? Soon and very soon the anti-christ will come on the scene and reveal his self. The news media no sooner report one act of violence, when they are on the scene reporting another act of violence.  Peace will soon be taken from this world. God’s grace has been extended to the world for thousands of years and people could not live in this world without it. How much longer will God’s mercy and grace last no one knows, but it will soon stop and be no more.
God by His grace and mercy has brought America through many conflicts, world wars and dangers. We have a group of people who wants to destroy us and they have killed many and are still plotting and killing, but most of the American people still turn their back on God and refuse the truth of His word. They refuse to have any part of God’s love or His salvation plan. They are lost without God or His Son. There is going to be a lot of sorrow when people realize that Jesus has come for His own and they are left behind. People need to face the facts that they are living in God’s last hour of Mercy.
America is seen by the rest of the world as a Christian nation, but that is hardly the case. The truth is America is far from being a Christian nation. There are so few Christians in this nation anymore. But the few Christians that are left in this country can exert such a great influence on our Lord. If only ten people were found in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha those cities would have been spared. The leaders of this country want the people to believe that a well informed democracy is the way to solve all the problems of this country. America’s leaders will tell you democracy is the foundation this country was founded on and it is what made this country great. This is far from the truth for two reasons. This country is not a democracy. It is a Republic that is governed by a rule of law. The foundation this country was founded on was, and still is, Jesus Christ. Now that foundation is eroding from our republic and sin is becoming more and more prominent. Are you one of the ones anchored in Jesus. Who, today, will find find grace in the eyes of the Lord. Lord count me worthy to go back with you when you come.

The Falling Away Of America


 Now that the presidential election is now behind us and we are faced with another four years of Barrack Obama we are hearing all kinds of reasons why he was re-elected. We wonder why a known liar who has been the president for the last four years can be re-elected. People offer up all kinds of reasons and excuses for this but there is only one reason why. For decades the American people have turn their back on God more and more. There is a order in which this happened. It did not just happen over night. Many people did not like Richard Nixon because of Watergate, but he made a statement once that was true then and is still true today. Nixon said the family unit is what makes or breaks America. This is a statement that I agree with 100 %. The conduct and the behavior of the family unit filters down and made our society what it was then and is now.. Lets look at the facts which we cannot deny.
THE EARLY 1960's AND BEFORE: America was a Christian nation with families that attended church together, prayed together, had meals together around the dinning room table, parents taught their children right from wrong and kids were taught at a early age the value of work, faith, and what made this country strong. There was Bibles in the houses of most Americans and they were used. When most of us grew up we were taught respect for our elders and the public in general. Everyone in that family unit had a togetherness and a thankfulness for what the Lord provided. The roots were strong and the children in this generation became strong leaders for what was right. When families came together with the same purpose in mind they made a strong America. The schools were a place were kids could go and be safe. A place were they could become educated for the adult stages of their life. Here also they were taught the basic concepts of being a Conservative Christian. By this I mean every morning the school day was started with prayer, Bible reading, and pledge allegiance to the flag. They were taught in their studies what made this country great. They were taught about the founding fathers and the principals they handed down to us. There was no doubt in the students mind that America was a nation founded on God and His laws. These students had a sense of right and wrong. The hallways was a safe place as well as the school grounds. Because of all the correct teaching and love in the home and in our schools the students turned into a productive society and the process that was point out in the above comments should have started over again with their children. People looked out for each other and the church cared for the people in need. People worked for what they received. What the churches could not do the government had a well administered welfare program that took care of the basic needs for people until they could get back of their feet. Homosexual and Lesbian life styles were not recognized as legitimate life style and people did not come out in the open with this unnatural life style. Even though Gays were around they never “Came out of the closet” because of the shame.
The Year 1963: Prayer and Bible reading was ended in public school by the supreme court. The Bible and prayer was no longer allowed in our public school school system. The Year 1964 The federal government under the leadership of president Lyndon Johnson and the Democrat party decided that they wanted to make a great society. A different society than what was put forth by our founding fathers. Laws was past and put into place, paid for by the hard working tax payer. These new laws included government housing, food stamps, money allotted for other things such as to pay electric bills, telephone bills, doctor bills, and in some cases even cable TV Bills. Johnson and the democrat party made away for people to get on different programs mentioned above, but in all their planning they never made away for people to get off these programs. So at least two generations which are on these government programs do not know other way, Thus becoming the new family unit. This new family unit expect everything to be given to them by the government. As the 1960's move forward the family unit begins to come apart. The parents now send their kids to church instead of going with them. Family time becomes involved more and more with doing what each one wants to do, instead of doing things as a family. The Year 1973 The killing of unborn babies, called abortion, was made legal by the supreme court in a decision called Roe verses Wade. That decision has shape the political climate in this country ever since.
The Years 1975 thru Present: The federal government recognizes homosexuals as a excepted life style and gives them special rights. Homosexuals get married in our churches and preach behind the pulpit at the sacred desk. Babies are now being killed in the last month of pregnancy and in some cases as they are being born. The Great Society becomes the society of takers and expects the government to supply them with everything. The democrat party does not want God as a part of the political platform. The president calls the constitution outdated and also puts forth the idea all of the Bible is not for today. Same sex marriage is allowed in a lot of states. People who call their self Christians vote for a man that goes against God's laws. Drugs, violence, and police officers are now apart of the public school system. And there are a lot more things that could be named.
The blame for the American downfall stems from the family unit. When a child grows up he only knows what he is taught in the home and in school. The family as a unit left and forsook God over the years little by little. The seeds of right and wrong, that was planted in our children's heads are gone now and our nation, as we can see everyday, has turn into a depraved people and nothing is sacred anymore. America has become like Sodom,Gomorrah, and Nineveh. Every imagination of the human heart is okay with people. What will America's out come be? Will the nation repent and call on God like Nineveh or will she face destruction for her sins like Sodom and Gomorrah? The time clock is running out for America.

Thoughts About The Election

Untitled

With much thought about the election I talked to several people today for their input, most of them are disheartened with the election results on Tuesday, others, had a “who care attitude”. Most Christians people that I talked to did not see the nation as choosing Biblical values with the continuation of the present Obama administration, and are deeply concerned about the direction America is heading. They are right in their thinking and have a right to be disheartened. I was just as upset as anybody else and perhaps even a little mad to think that our deceiver president got re-elected. I was even more upset with the people who re-elected him.
I even found my self asking God how it could have happened. But then I realized that the Scriptures found in God's Word do not hold out for any kind of a political hope for our country or for the world either. Jesus is the only hope! The political vision and the views of the president and other leaders will become more and more consolidated and drawn together by the evil powers to be. Things will  become much worse as our leader has a free hand in what he wants, which will in my opinion moves this country toward a system ruled by the anti-christ as we read in Revelation Chapter 13. We must remember it is not democrat against republican, liberal against conservative, or one race against another. It is good verses evil. Some people may not want to hear that, but it is the truth. Bible prophecy is getting ready to come to past.
Since our Lord gave us the great commission we are told to direct our attention at individuals. He said to go make disciples of all the nations, we should continue to focus on the individual lives which we can help to save before it is to late. Do not think that we are losing the battle because evil will still going to be in the White House. It was evil that voted him into the White House the first time and it was evil that voted him in the second time. I'm beginning to think these things must be, to fulfill scripture. The gates of Hell will not prevail against the Christian and what we do for Christ. His kingdom will most certainly come, as thousands and thousands have pray for. I read this story in an email I received and I believe it would be a good story to tell to make a point.
A young man once went to the beach. There, he saw miles and miles of starfish washed up on the sand. “If these starfish stay out here during the heat of the day,” he thought, “they'll die.” So he began picking up one starfish at a time as he walked, and threw them one by one back into the ocean. An elderly man also walking along the shore approached him and said, “Do you mind if I ask young man, what are you doing?” “I'm throwing these poor starfish back into the ocean so they don't die in the hot sun,” the youth replied. “But what difference can you really make,” said the old man, “Look at this beach -- there are thousands, maybe millions, of starfish here!” The young man smiled as he threw yet another starfish into the sea. “Well -- it made a difference to that one!”
The Word of God says. It is faithfulness in the little things that the Lord rewards. Every person on this earth is precious and valuable to God. It is just a waste of time to cry over the political scene in Washington because we can do nothing about it. But it is not a waste of time to address the spiritual, emotional, or physical needs of the ones who suffer and need help. We need to keep being faithful in the small things and God will do the rest. He will do what He wants to this country. We can never stop the sins of our leaders and the people who voted for them by ourselves. It is time for every true Christian to put on the whole Amour of God. It is not the leaders in Washington that we are doing battle with. It is who controls them. It is with Satan himself that we do battle with.

AMERICA - Has Left Her First Love

When America was first founded by men of faith there was a great love for our creator. When they first stepped on shore of this new land the first thing they did was to give thanks to the Lord. The Lord was recognized by these men as the great provider and the savior of their soul. He was the great “I AM”. Down through the years since the birth of this country the needs and the protection of the people was provided by the Lord. America was prosperous and she became strong and the people trusted in God as our currency so declares : "IN GOD WE TRUST" The people believed God and stood by His laws and statues. America was a Godly nation. God was found in our court rooms, in our schools, in our government buildings, and in most everything the people did God was there. Nothing of any importance was done without God being recognized for His kindness and grace. He was in all and was all.

Then slowly and steadily the evil one creep in and America slowly turned her back on God and His laws and statues. What was once evil in the eyes of the American people is no longer evil. The killing of millions of unborn babies was once a crime and against the law in the land, but now it is called pro- choice. In the past being a homosexual was regarded as sin, but now it is called “gay rights”. God have been removed from all our public buildings and public places. He is no longer wanted in the platform of one of our political parties and in some of our churches it is “God damn America” instead of “God bless America”. Our leader speaks of getting even and promotes ungodly acts and laws. God has been taken out of our schools and replaced by condoms, drugs, and police that guard the hallways. America has lost her first love and if she does not return and repent destruction will come. America has turned her back on God.

Years ago families went to church together, prayed together, and God was in the house holds of the people. Parents taught their children and put into practice the true and tried ways of our Lord. Now an ungodly government tries to dictate what parents can and cannot teach their kids. Ungodly things are being taught and practiced against the wishes of Godly parents, because now there is a generation that knows not God and sin abounds in this country. America will never rebound to her greatness or to her former glory unless her people repent and return to their first works and their love of God.

People think that we are in serious trouble now. Gas prices are high, people going hungry, loosing their homes, no jobs, crime and terrorism are getting worse everyday. We have leaders that scoff at God and His word. Our president said the some of the Bible is out of date and not for today. National day of prayer by him was canceled, crosses are coming off churches and they are now being called campuses.

As for this writer, I am a Christian and I will not call no one my president or leader that goes against God's laws, nor will I condone any law or action that is against my God or His word. I will follow an elected leader as long as he follows Christ and His teachings. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. God bless my fellow Americans, God bless America, and Even so come Lord Jesus!

You Are Accountable To God

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness,And light dwells with Him. (Daniel 2: 20-22) NKJV


Today will most likely be one of the most important days of our lifetime, as the American people go to the polls and decide the future of this country, The United States Of America. Your vote, my vote, and the vote of our fellow countrymen will decide the course of this great nation. It will determine the course of the country. This is a very important election, so let us make sure we know the issues and let us also be sure we know what we're voting for. Let me give you a example of what I'm saying. I read the following paragraph from another blog.

In 1938, Kenneth Simmons, a democratic mayor, wanted to prove a point. So he hauled a mule, that he named Boston Curtis, down to the courthouse, and placed its hoof print on all the documents necessary to run for political office. Although Boston Curtis never ran a political campaign, the citizens of Milton, Washington voted for Boston Curtis – not realizing that they had actually voted for a MULE! Kenneth Simmons wanted to demonstrate that voters often do not who they support or for that matter their agenda." I would say he proved his point.

As Americans we have to make decisions today that will affect the world for decades and most likely beyond that. So when you go into the voting booth do not vote for a man for the free handouts, or the color of his skin, or what party he is a part of, vote for what is right in God's eyes. If you claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ then when you look at the issues you will see there is only one way to vote. This election is for sure one of voting for evil or voting for good.

But no matter how this election turns out we should never lose sight of the fact that the Lord still sets on the throne and He sets up leaders and He removes leaders according to His perfect will and purpose; so whatever the outcome of today's contest, let's be sure that the King of all Kings still sits on the throne and in the end it will be his will and none but His. The outcome of this election will not hinder His divine will. So when you vote today vote with a God given confidence, vote for what is right, and let your Righteous King do the rest.

THE ELECTION – Facing The Facts


RESTORE TO THIS NATION, OH LORD, A CLEAN HEART
The November Elections will soon be here and most likely with a big voter turn out, because of the many issues facing this country. We hear many people raising their voices about so many issues facing our country. I’m wondering where has all the Christian voices gone. The ones that claim to follow Jesus Christs. Where is that strong voices of yesterday that stood up for moral issues in this country.
One of the big problems we face is the economy and it is a major issue with a lot of American voters, but it is not the biggest problem we face. The problem at the top of the list we face in America is the absolute and total decline of moral values that are found in the Bible. It is time for Christians to speak out and make our vote count in this upcoming election. Let’s cry aloud with our voices. That vote should be based upon what God has said in His Word. If this country, that we all love so dearly, would straighten the sin problem out, then God would straighten out all the other problems facing this nation.
If the Word of God calls something sin then it it is sin and we cannot paint it no other way. To condone sin we are going against God. Same sex marriage is wrong and hard as a person tries they cannot redefine marriage at the ballot box. Same-sex marriage is wrong. It is sin! It does not take any intelligent person long to figure that out. Everyone should be given their individual rights, but marriage is between one man and one women. Not because the government, or me, or anybody else says so but because God says so. The government mandated health, called Obamacare that provides for abortion, is wrong. Not because I say so, but because God says so. It is wrong and we all know it but it is allowed to continue. Nothing will ever change in this country until this nation gets back to the true laws that has made this country great. I’m speaking about God’s laws.
As important as the economy is, no jobs, high gas prices, the cost of food going out of sight, it is no where or even close in comparison to the deeper issues facing this country. I’m speaking about our morality and of the Biblical values this country has held so dear for centuries. You can build the greatest looking house, but if it is not built on the right foundation, it will, in the end, collapse. You can have the greatest understanding of economics, but if you have no moral foundation all the greatest plans put forth mean and are nothing.
It is time for the real sleeping giant, the Christian Church to wake out of its slumber, shake itself, and cry out about the really important issue facing this nation. “MORALITY”. A person can not sleep with the enemy and come out not changed. You will change, but Satan never will. He is not only the enemy of your soul, but the number one enemy and concern of this nation. The economy, security, and other things are issues and concerns of all the people, but the game changer will be when this nation returns to God, on their knees and repents for the sins of this nation. 

The Truth And The Consequences


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14) KJV.

Since I have been old enough to know what is going on in our government I know that there is truth and there is consequence in the actions and decisions of their decisions. I have seen how decisions by politicians and their appointees can have devastating effects upon our country’s moral character. In my life time I’ve seen the truth of what our government can do and the consequences of their decisions. The truth is in June 1963 the Supreme Court removed God from all parts of government. The schools, court rooms, and government buildings.

The Consequence of this was Prayer, Bible reading, religious Christmas carols, Bibles on the teachers desk, and anything to do with Christ was removed from from the classrooms of our schools and replaced by police officers in the halls to prevent crime, condoms, and sex education that teaches homosexuality is okay, just another life style. School have now become a liberal institution for our kids to be indoctrinated with lies, non truths, and propaganda that goes against God's laws.

The Ten Commandments, along with the Bible, was removed from our courts and because of this the morality of America has suffers so much. America is coming very close to becoming a atheist country. It is only because of a few praying people that God has held back his wrath on this country. The truth is, in 1973 The Supreme Court legalizes abortion and the Consequences of that action was 54,000,000 unborn babies were murdered and the slaughter still goes on. What would have happen if there was legal abortion when Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King was in the womb? What a great price this country will pay for this legalized crime.

The truth is on June 2012 the Supreme Court imposed a tax (OBAMACARE) through judicial legislation and the Result of that was higher taxes on the American citizen by a branch of government having the least accountability or is answerable to the voters and could care less what most of the people thought or think. After knowing the majority of the people was against the new tax they still upheld it. Where is the voice of the people?

Of the nine justices who sit on the Supreme Court, Obama has appointed, and the Senate confirmed two liberal justices. The remaining seven justices of the Supreme Court are as follows, four are in their mid-70s or older. When a justice is confirmed, they sit on the bench for the rest of their life. The scary thing is this, if Obama gets re-elected and there is still a democrat majority in the senate it will most likely change the integrity of the Obama court (Which is what he wants) and liberalize the Supreme Court for the next generation. The integrity of that court will not be what most Americans will want. And if you are a conservative or a christian you know what that means. We must really pray for our country and the upcoming election.

We need to get down on our knees and seriously pray (touch the throne of God) for our children and grand- children that they will not be living in a socialistic and atheist society where the government, or even worse, a want to be dictator oversees, dictates and tells the people what they can or cannot do. The vote that people cast, November 6, will decide the very future of our kids and grand kids. Let us all hope and pray the future of our country will not continue the slippery slide toward communism and moral destruction.

WOMAN'S RIGHTS: The Big Lie








"

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
and before thou camest forth out of the womb
I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet
unto the nations."   (Jeremiah 1:5 )


Women have rights! Yes they do and I will be the first to agree with that statement. They have the same rights as men and should be treated equally. A woman should not be treated like a door mat, or a second class citizen. During my life time I have seen women abused and mistreated by their husbands and many other things that were not right. I will always stand up for the rights of women. The problem that I do have is one of the meaning of a woman's rights being used by our government called abortion and is being used by this administration for miss guided propaganda, because it goes far beyond the rights of any woman and takes away the rights and the lives of unborn children. If a woman aborts a baby, even in the ninth month, it is called her right, but if a person kills someone it is called murder. If a person kills a pregnant woman they are charged, most of the time, with two counts of murder. What is wrong with that picture? Just as God had plans for Jeremiah while he was still in his mother's womb He also has plans for all unborn children in the mother's womb.

As a Christian do you ever get tired of hearing and seeing our government and people go against God's laws? Laws that have stood the test for thousands of years. Do you get just plain sick of hearing statements like; “it is the woman's right to chose what she wants to do with her own body and it is her right to abort a unborn baby. The question that needs to be asked is when will those women who abort babies realize the unborn child has rights also. When will people understand that God has not changed, murder of a unborn child is not okay? Even though we are living at a different time than when the Bible was written, our Lord's Word changes not. The Bible is still our guide, although many have did their best to change that great book to met their needs and life styles. Nothing has changed as far as God is concerned. His Word is forever settled in heaven. We need to continue to live our lives as closely as we can as God tells us in His Word. We were all, once, sinners born into a world of sin, but we do not continue to "knowingly sin." Murder is wrong no matter if it is aborting a unborn child or shooting someone with a gun. It makes no difference if it is a unborn baby or an adult. Murder has always been wrong and one day soon (and very soon) everyone of us will meet the Lord and will be judged for our deeds good or bad. That includes the murdering of unborn children along with all the other sins that are found in the Bible. When a political party rejects God as part of their party's platform anything is possible and it is the Democrat party of this country that promotes this very thing. The killing of unborn children! Enthusiastically supporting the torture and murder of unborn infants is not that hard for people who deny the very existence of God like the democrats did at there party's convention.

Animals and the fish in the sea have more rights and laws to protect them than a unborn child. It is alright to kill a unborn baby, (even in the ninth month) but it is against the law to kill some types of whales, animals, and fish. This twisted way of thinking comes from a reprobate mind. These people are depraved and no longer know what good is. They call good bad, and bad good. Animals has rights, murderers has rights, terrorists have rights, illegals has rights, but unborn babies, who cannot speak for their self, have no rights thanks to the congress and liberal judges who see killing unborn babies as okay.  One day they will stand before the Great Judge and answer for their actions. Satan through the hands of evil people (most of them in the Democrat Party) have taken positions at every level and in every branch of our government. Abortion Doctors kill unborn babies with the approval of the Democratic Party!  And the Democrat Party has covered up the murders, by calling this evil such things as pro choice, women health, reproductive rights, planned parenthood, and women rights,  All are lies from the very pits of hell. No true Christian, that believe in the word of God, could never be a member of this party. The Democrat party is not the same one as it was years ago. The leaders of this party are reprobates.

How do these people explain things like thumb sucking, responding to pain, and reacting to being touched while the unborn are still in the womb? If God knows of every sparrow that has fallen He surely knows of every aborted baby. These are the same people who, with their warped minds want to legalize same sex marriage, who want to give homosexuals special rights, and advocate this teaching in the class rooms of our schools, including the passing out of condoms in the class room. I have said many times in the past and I will say it again; “ANY NATION THAT PROMOTES THESE SINS IS IN THE LAST STAGES OF MORAL CORRUPTION”.

MARRIAGE: It Is A Union Between A Man And Woman

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth....[Genesis 1:27-28]    Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh  [Genesis 2:24)

For those of us that read the Holy Scriptures and believe in God's Word, It seems almost ludicrous and ridiculous that after centuries of recognizing and distinguishing marriage as a physical union between one man and one woman, as ordained in God's Word, some  people of These United States, would have the audacity and boldness to say that two persons of the same sex may unite in marriage and they believe there is nothing wrong with it. This stinks in the nostrils of God! God made Adam and Eve, Not Adam and Steve. Two people of the same sex are of two very different realities. The laws of nature have defined reality for us. We must call co-habitation between two persons of the same sex what it is, SIN! It stinks in the nostrils of God.  We can not truthfully call it a marriage. Marriage is inseparably unitized and procreative. It is intimate — two in one flesh, and it is life-giving. Marriage (Between one man and one woman) is, and has been, the foundation of a continuing stable society for thousands of years, recognizing the role that mothers and fathers play in the lives of children. Any nation that excepts homosexuality and same sex marriage as a excepted life style is in its finial days of moral corruption. Furthermore, religious liberty and protection should not denied to any religious organization that accepts federal or state funds because of their religious belief and their stance against this ungodly sin.

This nation was founded on God and His word but yet many people and some that claim to be Christians will deny the teachings in God's word about Homosexuals and marriage. Their minds are reprobate and seared. Our country will never turn to its formal greatness and splendor as long as this sin is being practiced and promoted by the American people. If God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with brimstone and fire for this sin what will he do to America for doing the same? God loves the homosexual but He will not tolerate the sin. If the American people want their nation restored to it's formal greatness then there must be a turning away from this sin and then God will heal this land.

Subject: Senior Version of 'Jesus Loves Me'

GRAB LIFE BY THE THROTTLE AND DON'T LOOK BACK

While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to
church, I watched a church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who
had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the
church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.
After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted
down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort
and a sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any
kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly
and slowly he began to speak....

"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you,
your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned
in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and
boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life
and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always
rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me...
The only thing that would comfort was this verse..............
images (1)
"Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong.....
Yes, Jesus loves me....
The Bible tells me so."

 


The old pastor stated, "I always noticed that it was the
adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of
course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest
because I could see they knew it the best."

"Here for you now is a Senior version of Jesus Loves Me":

 JESUS LOVES ME  (SENIOR VERSION)images

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.
(CHORUS)
YES, JESUS LOVES ME. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.

Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I'll go
On through life, let come what may,
He'll be there to lead the way.
(CHORUS)

When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song..

Telling me in words so clear,
"Have no fear, for I am near."
(CHORUS)

When my work on earth is done,
And life's victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I'll understand His love.
(CHORUS)

I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.
(CHORUS)



If you think this is neat, please pass it on to your
friends. If you do not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, but you will
have missed an opportunity to "reach out and touch" a friend or a loved
one.
God Bless Us All!!!
