The Church of Today

The world is changing so fast, even right before our eyes and yet there is one thing that will never change! The Blood that Jesus shed will never loose its power.  As the song says it will reach the highest mountain and the lowest valley. That is so true, but the problem is some Christians are putting  a damper on that precious blood which was shed for us on Calvary. The Lord paid a debt that He did not owe and a debt that we could not pay. That same blood that was shed two thousand years ago will still do the same things today that it did then. Ninety percent of the church world has gone the way of the world.  

The modern church will tell you that healing is not for today, the casting out of demons is not for today, and other things. They are just like the Pharisees and Sadducees of Bible times. They would rather make laws, church doctrines, and other things than what the true church is really for. If the church wants to win souls for Christ in the last days they must call the church to prayer and fasting. They would believe the whole Word of God instead of picking and choosing what they want to believe. There was no picking and choosing in the Bible days as to what Jesus could do. He was the great "I Am" and He will always be the great "I Am".  If he could save you then, He can save you now, if He could heal then He can do it now, if He could raise the dead then He can do it now, if demons had to go then by His power they will have to go now by that same power. The Blood of Jesus Christ has never lost its power.

The answer to that is plain to see. They have replaced Seeking the Lord, The Holy Ghost, prayer meetings, revivals, and the power of God's anointed Word with soup kitchens, chicken dinners, yard sales, fashion shows and many other things that the church was not intended for. Everything that has a dollar sign attached to it, you name it, and it is there in most churches of the living God. When a church has to sell chicken dinners, have yard sales and other things to help the finances of the church then something is wrong. Where is the faith of that congregation? I'm not saying that it is wrong to have a fellowship meal or gathering of the saints to fellowship or to feed the poor, that is scripture. But all these  money making schemes is not!  Lean on Jesus and He will supply all your needs, your personal needs, the churches needs, and the needs of all people. Put your hand in the nail scared hand of the Man from Galilee. It is not the things that I have stated that wins souls. It is the pure raw word of God preached under the anointing that brings about the victory.

Now I know that some of you might be disagreeing with me, but I am convinced that to make a church to be what it ought to be we need something else in place of those things. and that is the Holy Ghost. You have that in your church you need none of those other things. Our eyes most be focused on the true purpose of the church. That is to save souls, heal the sick, cast out demons, and do all the other works of God.
It hurts me so bad when you ride by a church and you read on the sign out front: "chicken dinners for sale" or "yard sale this Saturday" or "fashion show soon".  How is that glorifying God? What Glory does He get out of that? Once I was at a church of a large denomination for a service on a Sunday night and one of the deacons stood up behind the pulpit and told all the ways the church was making money. It seemed that it took forever. He finished his speech by saying that they were not only a church now, they were also a business. HOW SHAMEFUL!  I was there to hear THE PURE RAW WORD OF GOD! I was there to see people saved, healed, and a moving of the Holy Ghost. (Which never did happen) I was there to have my soul feed. The business of the true church is entirely different than the business of that church and that is to win souls.

Let me give you one more example. I belonged to a small denomination that was headed by a man that was filled with the Holy Ghost and had much wisdom. We had camp meetings where all the churches came together, along with a lot of other people to worship the Lord. The Lord was always there and you could just feel His presents as you walked over that Holy Ground. People were saved, healed, delivered, and baptized in the Holy Ghost. The Lord moved. you could just feel the presents of the Spirit as you walked across the camp ground. The preachers who spoke were anointed and there was something burning inside them as they spoke. There was no charge for eating in the dinning area between services, ( a very small charge for staying in a cabin and a very small charge for campers to park. God was just there. When the leader died and was replaced things changed. The doctrine began to change, the preaching started to change, and soon There was no more free meals, prices were raised for cabins and campers. WHY? the needs were no longer being supplied. The answer is the anointing was gone. They went from being a church on fire to a dead church. They had to start charging money for the once free meals, the crowds dropped off till there is no more camp meetings. This is what happens when you get off the path that God has put you on. I read the following in a local news paper this morning and I'm yet to understand it:

 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) XXXXXXX  XXXXXX  praised the election of President Barack Obama but said at their national meeting on Wednesday that they oppose his views on abortion and other social issues. Leaders of the nation's largest Protestant denomination voted in favor of a resolution to "share our nation's pride" in Obama's historic victory. (The name of the denomination was blocked out by me) In my opinion this is sending a mixed signal to the hundreds of thousands that are in that denomination. As a Christian you do not give praises to a leader that goes against Bible principles and claims to be somebody he is not. The majority of the saints in this denomination did not vote for this man, but just look at what the leaders are saying and you wonder why the churches Of our Lord are in the shape they are in. You can not praise a man that is always quoting from the Muslim koran, but said the Bible is outdated and some of it is not for today, a man that is already going against most Christian principles and against the very word of God.

The church of all denominations must repent and get back to the foundations of their belief if they want to do anything for the Lord in these last days. It is important for all the churches to pray for this country and the world. Our time should be spent on our knees or in our private prayer place praying instead of all the things that are happening with most churches today. The only thing that can change the course of this country is the Hand of God.

Muslim or Christian?

During his years in the White House President Clinton was nicknamed with admiration as "America's first black president" by some black people. Applying the same standard of distinct politics and pandering to the special interest groups that earned Mr. Clinton that distinction, Barack Hussein Obama would have to be considered America's first Muslim president. That is the way it would seem by all the speeches and catering that he is doing to the Muslim world. This is not to say, necessarily, that Mr. Obama actually is a Muslim any more than Mr. Clinton actually is black. After his five months in office, and most especially after his just-concluded visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt, however, a stunning conclusion seems increasingly reasonable by many people: Barrack Hussein Obama is now happy to have his Islamic-rooted middle name given a major position in his title (This was something that was not allowed during his campaign) and he has engaged in the most significant say one thing and do another since Adolf Hitler fooled Neville Chamberlain at Munich, Just before World War Two. As Christians our eyes should be ever more open to the possibility that we have a man that could be someone other than what he wants us to believe he is. Things are not as they always seem to be. We have a president that said one thing during the election and after he was elected is showing signs of being someone else. This is very scary. He presented his self, during the election, as a angel of light and hope. Most Christians saw him as a deceiver.
What little we know about Obama's youth certainly suggests that he not only had a Kenyan father who was Muslim, but spent his early, formative and decisive years as one in Indonesia. We still do not even know where he was born. He is yet to produce a certified birth certificate. As the president likes to say, "much has been made" in this case by him and his campaign handlers, of the fact that he became a Christian as an adult in Chicago, under the now-notorious Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright. That is a big enough scare. All the vile speeches that was spewed out of this preacher's mouth does not come from a true believer in Jesus Christ. The Christian religion is based on loving Christ and your neighbor, not one of hate. The Muslim religion from what I see is one of hate. Does this say anything about the Rev. Right? When Mr. Obama's unbelievably advertised and publicized very loudly and firmly in his address in Cairo to what he calls "the Muslim world" and his Muslim upbringing, there is mounting evidence that the president not only identifies with Muslims, but actually may still be one himself. Consider the following indicators: The proof as, some would say, is in the pudding. He has been to two Muslim countries since he took office and has yet to set foot in Israel! That says something in itself to all Christian people and Jews alike. Mr. Obama referred four times in his speech to "the Holy Koran." Non-Muslims, even the pandering ones -- generally don't use that Islamic expression unless they want something. Now like never before is the time to be in prayer for Israel and our country as well. Obama established his first hand knowledge of Islam (without mentioning his reported upbringing in the faith) with the statement, "I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed." The word "revealed" is a illustration and a demonstration Muslims use to reflect their conviction that the Koran is the word of God, as dictated to Muhammad. He gives the Koran thumbs up, where ever he goes, and yet he made the statement when he was campaigning, before the election, that the Bible was out of date and also some parables' are outdated. He needs to be corrected. The Bible says that: " Forever Oh lord thy word is settled in heaven", "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever", "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words will not pass away" and there are many more verses that will tell you there is nothing out dated in the Bible. Now as a Christian (as he claims) what part of that does our president not understand? There is nothing outdated in God's Word!
Then the president made a statement no believing Christian (certainly not one that reads their Bible regularly) would ever make. In the context of what he called the "situation between Israelis, Palestinians and Arabs as offensive ," Mr. Obama said he looked forward to the day when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story, when Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them) joined in prayer. (Where did Obama get that. I cannot find that in my KJV Bible!) Now, the term "peace be upon them" is relied on by Muslims as a way of blessing deceased holy men. According to Islam, Muslims believe all three were dead prophets. Of course, for Christians, Jesus is the living and immortal Son of God. He is the great "I AM" He was and is, and evermore will be the Son of The Living God. So how can Obama consider Jesus as a dead prophet. Now how is Obama looking with his Christian faith? What is his score? He sound like a Muslim more all the time. In the final breakdown, for a lot of people that are not Christian it may be beside the point whether Mr. Obama actually is really a Muslim. In the Speech and elsewhere, he has associated and united himself with supporters or followers to what Islam calls Shariah (Islamic law based on the Koran) especially, the dangerous worldwide movement known as the Muslim Brotherhood, to a degree that makes Mr. Clinton's captivated likeness for blacks look really small by comparison. The way things are lining up all Christians need to really pray for this country, Israel, and even the entire world. We really do not know fully who this man is that is in control of our country. For example, Mr. Obama has, from his, well worded, inaugural address onward exaggerated the existing and historical importance of Muslim-Americans in the United States. In the Speech, he used the Brotherhood's estimates of "nearly 7 million Muslims" in this country, at least twice the estimates from other, more reputable sources. (Who knows? By the time Mr. Obama's friends in the radical Association of Community Organizers for Reform better known as (ACORN) carry out their trademark books (cooking the books) as deputy 2010 census takers, the allowed count may well claim by far a lot more than an 7 million Muslims are living here. Not once does he say anything about the founding fathers and their Christian beliefs. He claims to be one thing but is fast proving his self as something else. Now that the campaign glitter has gone we are seeing him as he is and it does not look good for the United States and the Christian who live here.
Even more troubling were the commitments that Obama made in Cairo to promote Islam in America for not once have I heard him promote Jesus. For instance, he declared: "I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear." How about the same with Christians in Muslim countries that are being murdered and persecuted everyday for their faith? Will that soon become the standard for America? He promised to make sure that women can cover their heads, including, in all probability, when having their photographs taken for passports, driver's licenses or other identification purposes. He also pledged to permit Muslims to engage in zakat, (the Muslim faith's requirement for tithing), even though four of the eight types of charity called for by Shariah can be and are connected with terrorism. Not surprisingly, a number of Islamic "charities" in this country have been convicted of providing material support for terrorism. Yet he has proposed to stop the tax credit Americans get for tithing and giving to their local church. There is another bell ringer. Above all what is really troubling is the repositioning and change Obama has announced in The United States policy and guidelines toward Israel. While he pays lip service to the "unbreakable" bond between America and the Jewish state, the president has clearly and distinctly signaled that he intends to require the Israelis to make defensive and other tactical concessions to Palestinians to accomplish the two-state solution. In doing so, he ignores the problematic fact that both Hamas and Fatah are still determined to achieve a one-state solution, whereby the Jews will be no more. Were the Jews will be exterminated. That is a well stated fact that has been said over and over again by them and their brother in arms. (Iran) and many other Muslim countries. Obama knows this. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Who is the man that is our president. Have the people who voted for him been duped? Whether Mr. Obama actually is a Muslim or simply plays one in the presidency may, in the end is neither here nor there. What is alarming is that in aligning himself and his policies with those of Shariah followers such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the president will greatly step up the already enormous pressure on peaceful American citizens to give in to such forces and increase the outlook, abroad, that America is caving in to the Muslim demands. We must be in much prayer to the Lord or our grand children will be wearing Burkhas!
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. ( Isa 59:19) Our struggles with the powers of darkness and the same with Israel with her struggle against the Muslim world will not end in defeat. The Lord will fight this battle.

Some people say that Obama is the anti Christ, some say he is the messiah, so say he was planted in this country, From his youth, to do exactly what he is doing, (TEARING THIS COUNTRY APART) and others see him for what he really is, a person who talks out both sides of his mouth, a person who says one thing and does another. Most Christians see him as a person that claims to be a Christian but his actions prove otherwise. He acts like, talks like, and in every way shows himself as a deceiver. As Christians we can see by his first 100 days in office that things do not look good. We never hear about his Christian up bringing from him. It is always about his Muslim upbringing. He has already did major damage to our country and more is to come. That is the bad news. The good news is that we serve a living God who fights our battles for us. In closing this article let us unite in prayer for the safety of our country and that of Israel. Let us pray for the soon return of our Lord (Our soon coming King). People with spiritual eyes can see that the battle is shaping up and it is now more than ever that we need to put on the full amour of God, so that we can stand in these last days.

What Time is it?

    As every true born again believer knows there is only one enemy that threatens our entire civilization and that great adversary is, of course, the old boy Satan himself. He tries many things to bring the Christian world to its end. That is his goal and his purpose. The only way for a person to see what is unfolding before our eyes in todays world is to know what the word of God says and look at it with spiritual eyes. If you are not spiritual you will not see it. With spiritual eyes you can put the pieces together so easy. The End of time Is upon us.
    If you are a avid Bible reader like I am then you must see as I do that time will soon be no more. As you read and think out what the scriptures say and put the pieces together then you will know as I do that things in this old world are getting critical, real critical. If you are saved, blood bought, born again Christian then you have a responsobility to "Cry aloud and spare not". We must tell the world of the soon coming events that will surely be upon us. Some people will not agree with me I'm sure. They only want to hear of God's love. Let me say this if you love the Lord you will want to spread the word "Jesus is Coming and soon!" Bible prophecy has just about run its course and is soon to be completely filled at the close of Revelation. Listen we are just about there. We need to spread the word by the written word, tracts, preaching, testifying, and just plain crying out. Let me ask the reader a question: "When you go somewhere, anywhere, do you have a tract to leave?" A well written tract is all that some people will ever see. Do you take the new testament or the Bible with you so if you have the chance you can read from the word. As a Christian do you do all that you can do to warn the lost? If we fail to warn the wicked then we will have to answer to Christ. Blessed are those that are found doing when Christ comes.
    It is a fact that time is winding up. The end of time is closing on us fast and I'm looking for Jesus to come in the clouds of glory any day. I feel His mighty presence as I write. I'm sixty three years old at this writing and I believe with all my heart that Jesus will come in my life time. I'm looking for it and As I write this I cry out from the depths of my soul: "EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS" I'm so glad that Jesus found me! I was bought with a price and if you are saved, born again then you were too. That price was paid on Calvary long ago.
    As I sit and read (I can do a lot of that now since I have all but retired) I can see a lot of things that has caused the man of sin to come quicker. It is very plain to see the world is on the broad road to destruction. Let us look at some of the things that has put this nation there. There are many but I will just list and expound on a few.
    When you are a Christian nation living by God's laws and then you turn from those laws you are opening the door and giving place to the devil. We are not to give place to him, but rather rebuke him in Jesus Name. As we know this just is not happening. Our God is not allowed in our schools, court rooms, or any place of importance. America openly kill unborn babies, allow homosexuals to parade down our streets, be married in our churches, and preach behind God's sacred desk. The House has passed the controversial Hate Crime Bill which will stop pastors from speaking about homosexuality as a Biblical sin, and prohibit free religious speech against the homosexual lifestyle.The Bill is called “The Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act “and was introduced in the Senate last week just as the House passed its version in a 249-175 vote. The legislation is intended by its sponsors to protect homosexuals We only have to read from the Bible what happen to the nation of Israel when they turned from God's laws. We know what happen to that wicked city of Sodom. Will the same thing happen to the United States?
    Abortion has run rampant in our country for decades to the point that this country is now allowing full term babies to be murdered. This would not of even have been thought about seventy five years ago. It was considered wrong. What happen? My answer to that is this: "When you turn your back on God anything can happen." We, at one time, lived in a Godly society but now it is an anything goes society. When ever this happened in the Bible judgement always came and America is no different. Judgement will come. People can have the attitude: "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we may die." The only thing that is left out of that statement and their thinking was: "Then comes the Judgement."
    Because of abortions in this country the population and birth rate has fell to a all time level while at the same time the Muslim population is increasing at a fast rate. According to the link that I have provided , for you to view, A Muslim world, 20 years at the present rate of abortions and the declining rate of births there will be more Muslims in this country than All other religions combined. What does this tell you? If the Lord does not soon return our children and their children will be living in a Muslim world. And to go further it is the same with all the other countries of the free world. Some are nearly all Muslim now. So just like in Nehemiah's day America is fighting a battle from without and within. Most people can not see this because you have to see spiritual things with spiritual eyes. Our birth rate all over the world is dropping while the Muslim birth rate is greatly increasing. God has a plan for man and thank God I'm in that plan. But remember Satan has a plan for man also as I have tried to lay out to you. In the end God will win and Satan will be defeated so keep your heart in tune.
    This is just a small list of what Satan has put against us to bring us down and so far he is doing a pretty good job, but in the end we will win! He will never defeat God's plan for man and he will only be able to go so far, but we as Christians are still to fight the good fight. Even though we are to stand up to those who call wrong right and right wrong our battle is really spiritual. As I close this article I will leave you with these verses from God's word
    Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
    ( Ephesians 6: 10-18)

    The Day We Become Silent

    Inserts of this commentary are from a article that I wrote back in October 2008. I was impressed by the Lord to write that article and I used parts of it for the article that I'm writing today. I guess the reason is that article is always on my mind. As Christians we must have a spiritual awaking and wake up to what is going on in our country. Our country is on the edge of spiritual destruction and material destruction. If Christian people do not stand up now for what is right, and stand up now, then let them forevermore hold their peace. How has this country got in the shape that it is in? It did not happen overnight. Just think back how God use to bless this country and compare with how it is today and a person with spiritual eyes can see it in a minute. Those of you who cannot see the destruction that is coming I pray that God would open your eyes to the coming danger.

    When I went to school we had Bible reading, prayer, and pledge allegiance to the flag every morning and there was two words that I will always remember in that pledge, "UNDER GOD". Every student took their turn at reading the Good Book and they wanted to read it. I remember that on every teacher's desk was a Bible. That Bible was not in a desk drawer but out in the open on top of the desk for all to see. That book was a part of our daily lives and it was not hid. There was respect for the teachers and other kids in the school. The biggest thing that happen in school was getting caught chewing gum in class. The principal had a paddle and would use it real quick and so would the teachers. The students knew this. There was no violence in school, no drugs, and no need of a police officer roaming the halls to maintain order. Just one word from a teacher is all it took. The teachers was treated with respect and they were answered by a yes sir or no sir or a yes mam or no mam. This was the way it was then because Jesus Christ was the center of everything. Now there is violence in nearly every hallway, police in the halls of most schools, and then there is the students being disrespectful to the teachers. Why do you think that is? Some would say it is the signs of the times. My reasoning would be different. I think that this is what happens when you take authority away from the teachers, take God out of schools and replace them with birth control pills, condoms, and sex education classes for third graders. There are some things that are better taught at home. How kids that want to learn in today's schools ever learn anything I do not know. Why is this happening? Here is my answer to that. Some may not like it but it is the truth. When you take God out of the picture and His teaching and laws then there is nothing left but what we see today in our homes and schools. We are fast coming to live in a world without God. That to me is very frightening. The product of our society today is: "one of turning its back on God. This country harkens not to the word of God any more. What this country needs is spirited filled men of God cry out across this great land, as the prophet Jonah did to the city of Nineveh. The word was REPENT.

    When I was growing up there was a group of people living together and functioning as a single household, consisting of parents and their children called a family. There was a father who was head of the house and he was the bread winner. He was the priest (biblically speaking) of that family. Him and his wife taught moral and spiritual values, not the schools. The schools taught the three "Rs" He did not depend on food stamps or a government check to provide for his family. He depended on God's Divine Care and guidance. He believed what was recorded in that old family Bible. He taught his children how to work hard and to be responsible for their actions. Now in nearly half of the homes across this nation there is no father, to instill the things that are needed to bring about a successful child. There was a mother who put motherly love in the home and made it a home. There was family meals that you had better be to and before you ate the grace was said and you thanked God for what you had to eat, because we knew that all our blessings come from Him. You were a family and around the table while having that meal you worked out any or all family problems. At problems the children had were worled out at home, not by Guidance councilor at school. Now in most homes there is hardly a meal at home let alone a family meal. The kids are eating at McDonalds or some other place. You knew, when I was growing up, that if you did wrong there was going to be some type of correction. I had a father who would discipline me and I would see the light. He spared not the rod of correction and to this day I'm thankful of that. He did not send me to a councilor, or to a psychiatrist, or to group meetings. He did not send me to a doctor for pills for my problems, to slow me down and pick me up. He straightened me and my problems out real quick. He saved a lot of money and time in the process. That rod of correction was always given in love and it made a difference in my life. My father loved me with all his heart and still does to this day. You do not have to teach a child to do wrong. That comes naturally. You have to teach them to do right and that is just not happening in most homes today.

    I have a heavenly Father that loves and cares for me, also, and I have passed that very thing down to my kids and they to their kids. This is the way it was in homes across our land, but that is not the way it is now. Our children know more about who is on a certain TV show or the most important facts about a singer or actor, but very little or none at all about who the Vic president is, or the speaker of the house, what the constitution is, or any of the important history of this country. They know very little about the brave men who died for this country to keep us free. When I went to school if you did not learn you were held back until you did learn, but in today's world the children are sent on to the next highest grade not even being able to write their own name. How can children raised this way make the right choices in life? It is the same with our churches, or let me say the most of them. The people go to church these days and there is a program on the pew seat that tells you what songs that will be sung and a copy of the little sermon that the minister will read. The children go to their Sunday school classes and color pictures and then are sent home. They know no more than they did before they went into the Sunday School Room. Is this Church? No, God Forbid! Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Thank God that there is still a remnant of churches that still preach the truth and do the right thing. God will always have a remnant.

    We were taught as a family to give thanks to the Lord for everything. When we went to bed of a night we said our prayers unto the Lord for it was the right thing to do. We thanked Him for our daily blessings. We went to church as a family and sat together as a family in church. Our parents did not just send us to church, but they went with us. Now most parents do not even send their kids to church let alone go themselves. I'm a firm believer that it is the family unit that makes this country of ours what it is and that family unit in most cases is not doing to good right now. Some children today in this country do not even know who Jesus is. What was that saying that went around a few years ago," The family that prays together stays together." How true that is. Listen friends it does not take a village to raise a child, as some politicians suggest. It takes a Godly mother and father. In the end they will produce a godly child with in turn will lead to a godly Nation. THAT'S ALL! What is happening today is: there is no training in the home (spiritual or moral), and this leads to the violence that we have in our schools today. Training and spiritual guidance begins in the home. It begins with the family unit. In today's world we have banks closing, car makers going under, the housing market in trouble, and I could go on. The people and government are unset about this to the point of bail out money and loans, but for years we have seen a decline in our church growth and churches closing, but yet this new president wants to cripple our churches, and the spreading of the gospel even more, by taking away the tax exemption for tithing and giving to churches. Well what can you expect from a man who said we are no longer a Christian nation.

    We no longer, for a lot of the people in this country, have Christmas. It is now called the holidays because we do not want to offend people of other religions. But what about offending Jesus who came into this world and was born with one purpose in mine. To go to Calvary's Cross and die for our sins. No more nativity scenes are allowed. No more Christmas Carols in school that mention Jesus. No more Ten Commandments in Government Buildings. What would our fore fathers say. When George Washington was sworn in as president he kissed the Bible and said that this country would be governed by this Book. What Happen to that? Daniel Webster said, "The Bible is the Book of faith, and a Book of doctrine, and a Book of Morals, and a book of religion, of special revelation from God: but It is also a Book which teaches man his responsibility, his dignity, and equality." We need men like our fore fathers to govern our country today. If we want to see our country like it use to be or even better than it used to be Jesus Christ has to be a part of it. The part that is at the top, for He said, "I AM the way". Our founding fathers knew that! How can this nation prosper when our leaders will not let our Savior be a part of anything.

    We call ourselves a Christian Nation and we say we believe in God. But how many people in this country really believe in God? I sorry to say not many compared to the population. It takes more than just believing. Satan believes in God and trembles. The big difference is that true believers will trust and obey for they know there is no other way. Today as never before Satan is using people in all walks of life from the lowest to the highest to disrupt the Christian beliefs this country was founded on and to bring this country down to the very gates of hell. You may laugh but in your heart of hearts you know what I'm saying is the truth. You may say, "How so is this happening." Well let us just look at a couple of the things that deeply trouble me and if you are a Bible believing Christian, my friend, they should trouble you also..

    When you allow and permit homosexuals to publicly march down the streets in this country kissing, holding hands and getting married in our churches and court houses there is something wrong. There is something wrong when homosexuals preachers are allowed to stand behind the sacred desk and try to preach God's Pure and Holy Word. I will tell you very quickly it is Blasphemy. There is my friend no other word for it. It is profanity to the highest degree, wickedness, and irreverence to the Lord. Please let me make it clear, God loves the homosexual, but he hates that terrible sin and as God's Children so should we. God says in His word that homosexuality is an abomination. In other words it is repugnant and a disgrace, but this nation says that it is okay and they are teaching our kids in our schools that It is okay for Adam to marry Steve. They say it is just a different life style. Are these people sick or deceived? Twenty or thirty years ago the homosexual hid his sexual preferences and his disgusting lifestyle in the closet for no one to see, because it was shameful. Any nation in my view that justifies the homosexual life style as a excepted life style is in its final stages of moral corruption. Remember this, Sodom was the end result of a reprobate mind. Must we offer that same prayer to The Lord for our country that Abraham did for Sodom. Must we pray: "Oh Lord God for 50 righteous people {just one righteous person out of every state dear Lord} will you spare this nation." It is not too late for God to spare and heal this land if we would only do as that great city of Nineveh did many years ago. REPENT!

    Another thing that saddens my soul is the murder of millions of unborn babies {Our leaders call it abortion}. It is sad when you live in a country that has one law that says it is okays and makes it legal to abort (Murder) unborn babies and yet that same country has another law that makes it illegal to kill a whale or some other endangered animal. To me they are putting more importance on the whale or animal than a unborn human being. This is what I call a reprobate mind. A person with the mind of Christ would not think the way these people do. These people will have to answer to Jesus for this great sin on judgment day and trust me my friend that is not too far off.

    We are now I believe in the most important time in Biblical and world history. I say this because of the things that I see happening in this country of ours. I hope that most Americans will wake up and see the same things as I do, before it is too late. Our freedom of worship and freedom in general is at stake. We have a man that is president and he is being called the messiah by many. This is pure blasphemy. He say a lot but in essence says nothing. He shouts change. Change What? The only change that this country needs is to repent as a nation and come back to the Lord. For some reason I do not think that this is the change that he had in mind. He calls himself a Christian but says that some of the Bible is out of date. That's funny because The Lord said "HIS WORD CHANGES NOT" and David in the Book of Psalms said, "FOREVER OH LORD THY WORD IS SETTLED IN HEAVEN!" How much clearer can that be, and remember Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! The new president also condones and believes that homosexuals are not wrong in their ways and the killing of unborn babies is okay. Even ones that are just born. The word for it is infanticide. The meaning for that word is the killing of a new born baby with the parents' permission. How sad that our country has come to that. The canker worm is eating at our very freedoms that made this country great.

    He said he would talk to Muslim terrorist without any preconditions. Talk about what? That great revelation of his to talk to terrorist is so absurd. How do you talk to people who tie bombs around their body and then blow themselves up and innocent people with them. You do not talk to people that want to kill you, to cut your heads off, to put you back in the dark ages, and destroy our very freedom. You destroy theses people before they destroy you. How soon we forget 9/11 and the thousands of people that were murdered and maimed for life on that day. The Muslims want a Muslim world and they will not negotiate that. They want to kill anybody that will not except the Muslim religion, which is evil to say the least, and is one of hate! That is a fact. Something is wrong with Americans when they voted for a man that says a lot but says nothing of importance. Something is wrong when you voted for a man that has sat under a preacher for 20 years and heard things in his sermons such as: "Not God bless America, no no, but God D**n America." He says that this preacher is or was his spiritual advisor. I wonder how he would advise him if he was a White House advisor? I wonder who is really his behind the scene advisor? Something is wrong my friend when someone voted for a man that is friends with domestic and foreign terrorist. These are people that would kill you or your family or friends to reach their objective, which is the down fall of our country and the Christian world. You do not bring change (the kind that is needed) by sleeping with the enemy. Something is wrong when any American will not put his hand over his heart for the pledge of allegiance and not salute the flag. Something is wrong when a person has voted for a man that is friends with one of the biggest crooks in Chicago. Something is wrong when a man's wife says: "America is a mean country" I can tell you what it is, the people of this country are being deceived. They are being deceived because they are turning away from God.

    As I was listening to a news program not long ago, I watched in horror and with great disgust, as this man (our president) made the statement with pride and arrogance: '"We are no longer a Christian Nation; we are now a nation of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists." As with so many other disgusting statements I've heard him (and his wife) make, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd heard something like that from a president of this country. This not only hurt me, it also offended me and I sure that it did the same to any other Christian that heard this and other statements that he and his wife have made. It is true that we have different religions in this country, but we are still a Christian nation and our founding fathers wanted it that way. To think our forefathers fought and died for the right so our nation could be a Christian nation--and to have this man say with pride and arrogance that we are no longer that. How far this nation has come from what our founding fathers intended it to be, ONE NATION UNDER GOD! We need to show this president and the world that we are, indeed, still a Christian Nation and we are standing on that solid Rock, "CHRIST JESUS " On that SOLID ROCK WE STAND and all else is sinking sand. This country (if the history books were read) was founded on Christianity. It was not founded on Buddha, Allah, or any other false religion. It was founded on that solid rock! I thank God that I'm founded on that solid rock.

    I personally believe that God will deal with any person who claims to be a Christian and votes for a man of this caliber because of the color of his skin or his political party affiliation, knowing in their heart what he believes and says in does not line up with the Word of God. We as Christians must line up with what we know in our heart to be right. I say this in love, because God forbid I do not want to offend any Brother or Sister in the Lord, but I have to speak my heart. If we line up with this man then we are not lining up with God. I believe that this man has a hidden agenda that will really do this nation and the nation of Israel a lot of harm before his term in office is over if we do as Christians do not get down to business and stop being the silent majority as some people say. Some people are saying he is the anti Christ or the fore runner of the anti Christ. I will not go that far, but I can say this he has no Christian principles with him and he does not show or use any Christian values that I can see. But still the news papers indorse everything that he has done or wants to do. Why is this?

    Rev. Jimmy Swaggart answered that question in a recent book of his when he wrote about this very thing concerning the news media. Bro. Swaggart said, "Satan cannot cast out Satan." Think about what Swaggart is saying here. If you are spiritual you know what he is saying. That was some pretty powerful words coming straight from the Bible, but how true they are. "SATAN CAN NOT CAST OUT SATAN" That is hitting the nail right on the head! A lot could be said about the people reporting our news, but that is another story. A lot could be learnt by the volumes that were not published that should have been. Today's newspapers for the most part are a tool for Satan. The American people want to hear the whole truth, not a twisted truth or a half truth. The only truth you can get anymore is what you glean from God's Holy Word. News papers come and go but God's word is sure and is everlasting. In the end I will put my trust in the man from Galilee.

    This country was founded on Christianity. What is that? We believe that Jesus died on the cross and spilled His Blood for the sins of this world and it is thru Him and only Him that we are saved and have eternal life. We believe in His teachings and His Holy Word which has all the answers for the problems of this world and for you and for me. It is not Buddha, Allah, Mormonism, The Catholic Church, or any religion that does not teach there is only one way to heaven and his name His JESUS CHRIST. It is not crooked politicians or a psychiatrist or how much money we have in the bank, it is Jesus Christ and what he did at Calvary that is the answer and will always be the only answer to all our problems. Listen, my friend as I close this article let me say this: " There is nothing any more powerful than Holy Ghost anointed Believers praying." God shed His Grace on this country and we must touch the throne of Grace if this nation is to survive that which is coming against it. We need to pray most earnestly for this country that we love so much until The Rapture of the true church or the Lord takes us home. Pray before it is too late! We need a Holy Ghost Revival to sweep this land. Dear God spare my country and heal this land!

    So in my closing remarks let me sum this all up for the reader. The problems that we are having today as a nation comes from and starts with the home (the family unit) as I tried to bring out earlier. We have a man that has been elected to the highest office in our land by a younger generation that knows not God. ( this is not judging) , but based on some of the statement and things that he has said and done. Some older people and people of his race voted for him because they were deceived, but he was elected by the younger generation that wanted change and believe me they are going to see plenty of change. This is only a small part of what is happening with our country, but it all ties together. If fathers and mothers would have brought up their children (this present generation) in church and taught them sound Christian doctrine at a early age when they were kids then this country would not be in the awful position that it is in now. That is a biblical principle that never fails. This may not be all the problems facing us as Christians but it is a good start. Let us fast, pray, and touch Our Heavenly Father for this country.
