The eighteenth chapter of 1 Kings is a very good chapter in the Bible to read. In it we see Ahab, the wicked king of Israel, addressing the prophet Elijah: "Is that you, you troubler of Israel?" The only trouble with Elijah was he told the truth. That is what we need now people who tell the truth. The truth is America is headed down the broad road to destruction.
I have said before, many times, over the past few years in different postings on Face Book, different articles on my Blogs, and articles in local newspapers that during my seventy years God has granted me on this earth I have never seen America in such bad shape. We, as a nation, are on the road for destruction and we are being lead down that road by our leaders. They are just plain lost without God or His Son. That fact is millions of Americans are in the same boat. LOST, without God or His Son.. They have sold America out for a free cell phone and a EBT card. That will sounds crazy to most people but the truth is the truth. As far as the preachers in this country there are a few who have not bent their knee to Baal.
When you can read in the local newspaper about a person who calls himself a man of God but puts his stamp of approval on homosexual marriages, abortions, and other gay rights you know that we are headed for trouble. You know we are headed for trouble when we have churches all across this nation that now have Muslims and Christians worshipping together, as they say to the same God. How can that be? One religion is one of hate and the other one is of love. How can bitter and sweet be together? You know we are headed for trouble when the president of the United States will not call the killing of innocent people in the name of Allah what it is; Islamic Terrorism. You know we are in trouble when our government is letting thousands in that are not vetted. How can this government properly vet them when they could not even vet one who killed or wounded over a hundred people in Orlando, Florida. Expect more of this to happen under this present leadership and also under Hillary Clinton if she is elected president. Both of these people are evil.
Hillary Clinton will keep with the same policy that Obama has had for nearly eight years. She has accepted millions of dollars from Middle East Countries and it is documented on several conservative web sites. It is not just talk. Hannity on Fox News showed exactly where she was getting her money from to finance her bid for president. It comes from the very people who want to destroy America. And we have people voting for her. They will believe a lie and in the end be damned. She has lied all her life from Watergate to the present on numerous things. Like when she said she was under fire as she got off airplane in Middle East and it was a proven that she lied, then there are her private servers. To be blunt she is a liar and she is deceiving the American people.
We have let a Trojan horse in our country, Obama and now we are paying the price for a free cell phone, easier to get EBT cards, and many other free things. Our country has been sold out by people who can only see the free stuff. This is very scary. The people who would vote for such people as Clinton and Obama are scary. They are listening to Obama and Hillary Clinton like Eve listen to the sly serpent in the Garden of Eden. They have sold their souls and if it keeps up they will face the whirl wind.
If our nation keeps on the same road it is on and elects Hillary Clinton as the leader of this nation then we are doomed for destruction. When any nation not only justifies but also promotes ungodly sins such as abortion, homosexuals, lesbianism, transgenders and excepts it as a lifestyle, that nation is in the last stages of moral corruption. The destruction of Sodom was the end result of the reprobate and degenerate mind. Sad to say there are too many reprobate minds in America even to the highest levels of our government. We all know what the end to this country will be if it does not turn around and repent. You know we are in trouble when we elect a Muslim to the highest office in our land. Oh Lord let my voice be heard, let me be one of your people that troubles America.

Sometimes as children we played “make believe” games a lot. It was always fun when we became a imaginary doctor, policeman, or teacher, with just a simple notion. We were pretenders. I wonder if any of us ever thought about the first pretender, who was the great pretender. Pretending is fine if you are a small child playing with others. But there comes a time in our life when pretending can become a very serious thing. For instants in the Bible we read in the book of Judges Delilah pretended to love Samson and we all know the end result. Sapphira and her husband pretend and said to Paul that they gave all the money when they sold their property to the Lord, when they held some of it back. That pretend game cost both of them their life. God knows all. We cannot pretend with him. Judas pretended to be Jesus’ friend and in the end look what it cost him. It cost him not only his life, but it also cost him his eternal home.
There are great pretenders who live in today’s world who claim to know God and His Son, Jesus Christ, but far be it from being so! Many pretending Christians will say when the Lord returns lord we have prophesied in your name, and we have cast devils out in your name, and we have done many wonderful works, or look how many thousands are in our church, but Christ will say to them depart from me you who work iniquity, (wickedness, evil, and sin). Satan is pleased when he can get people to play his deadly game of pretending. (1 Peter 5:8)
We have people in the Churches of the living God today that are pretenders. They pretend to be saved but are really not. We have people that are liars, some who commit adultery, homosexuals, and man pleasers, and you name it they only play the game of being a follower of Jesus Christ. They may have their names on the church books but are pretenders. Like the great pretender they will have a end some day.
Christ died for us so we do not have to pretend about anything. People need to stop pretending and be genuine in their trust and obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ our soon coming King.

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. (John 14:1-2)
A person may be poor; they may live in what they or someone else call a shack. Some may live in card broad boxes, and others may wonder why it should be thus all the day long, but there is one thing for sure for all of you that are saved you will one day live close to the throne of God. Do not despair, because there is hope beyond tomorrow. There will be a time when there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more burdens to bear, no more sorrow, no more trips to the graveyard. What a day that will be when our Jesus we shall see.
If you read some other literal translations that are on the market today they would read or Well, this is indeed a hard command because these days we have so much to shudder or tremble about. It is very easy for a person to be troubled in these unsettling times. Even much more as that day approaches. Think about it. We are troubled by the economy and how it is going to affect us. There are so many people out of a job these days, even in your own church congregation. The cost of everything is going up every day and it makes parents who do not have any source of income wonder how they can make ends meet. People on retirement worry about their social security and will it be there the next time. Worrying will go from one thing to the other. It is natural for man to worry about things that are out of his control, but worrying will get you no place in this life. There is only one way and that is to trust and obey, for there is no other way.
What is trust? Trust is knowing, with all your heart that God will answer your prayer. Trust is the conviction, the assurance, and the certainly that God will indeed work in all things that matter in the lives of His people for their good.
So let me leave you with this thought when you are worried, scared, or uneasy thoughts come your way, remind yourself of what Jesus said; let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Even when things appear the worse have faith because you are a child of God.

And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the shut him in. (Genesis 7:16)
Noah was shut in away from all the world by the hand of divine love. The door of election comes between us and the world in which one exists. We are not of this world, even as [Jesus was] not of this world. Into the sin, the gaiety, the pursuits of the multitude we cannot enter; we can not play in the streets of vanity fair with the children of darkness, for our heavenly Father has shut us in.
Noah was shut in with his God. "Come thou and all thy house into the ark" (Genesis 7-1) was the Lord's invitation, by which He clearly showed that He himself intended to dwell in the ark with His servant and his family. Thus all the chosen dwell in God and God in them. Happy people to be enclosed in the same circle that contains God in the Trinity of His persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Let us never be inattentive to that gracious call.
Come, my people, enter into your chambers, and shut your doors about you, and hide yourself as it were for a little moment until the indignation is gone. Noah was so shut up in that no evil could reach him. Floods did but lift him heavenward, and winds did but waft (blow him gently) him on his way. Outside of the ark was all ruin, but inside all was rest and peace. Without Christ we perish, but in Christ Jesus there is perfect safety.
Noah was so shut in that he could not even desire to come out, and those who are in Christ Jesus are in Him forever. They will go no more out forever, for eternal faithfulness has shut them in, and infernal malice cannot drag them out. The Prince of the house of David "shutteth, and no man openeth" (Rev. 3:7) When once in the last days, as the master house, He will rise up and shut the door, it will be in vain for mere professors of faith to knock, and cry "Lord, Lord open unto us," for that same door that shuts in the wise virgins will shut out the foolish forever. Lord shut me in Your grace.
