I was praying about how to open this article. Unfortunately, my prayer has been answered. Four unarmed marines and a sailor were murdered in Tennessee by a Kuwaiti-born Muslim. Just hours after the attack, Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, and Michelle issued a “Happy Ramadan” message to Muslims worldwide.
This on the heels of a sell-out of Israel, the United States and the world by Barry’s administration in a nuclear deal with Iran. The treaty will have the US pay Iran billions of dollars so they can once again violate whatever provisions they choose as they finish developing their nuclear weapons program. Want another punch in the nose? The US will also help Iran protect its nuclear facilities from attack.
Yep, we’ll be obligated to protect our stated enemy from Israeli attack. Iran recently held a “Death to Israel” day. I’m not kidding, it was an official day. To show their good faith during the negotiations, Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei also called for death to America. Maybe Traitor of State John Kerrey can offer a few billion dollars more to sponsor a “Death to America” day in Iran.
How one-sided and inept is this agreement? Here’s an excerpt from an article from WordPress, titled “Iranian Defector says U.S. Speaks for Iran at Nuclear Talks.”
Amir Hossein Motaghi, who is a close aide to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, defected while he was in Lausanne, Switzerland, covering the nuclear talks between Tehran and the West. Motaghi said that “The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal.”
The level of appeasement here dwarfs Chamberlain’s infamous deal with Hitler. Any peace deal with Iran, or with any Muslim group isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
What a snapshot of living under judgment: Jihadists roaming our streets, Iran moving full-speed ahead to WWIII while their treasonous enablers occupy the highest levels of US government.
It would be obvious to state that we have a Muslim problem (the entire world has a Muslim problem), yet our woes are more deeply rooted than Islam. We have a sin problem, an addiction to wickedness. As a nation, we don’t just tolerate it, we revel in it, fixate on it, and obsess over it.
Even export it.
As official US diplomacy, homosexuality is being aggressively pushed on other nations around the world by way of offering financial incentives to legitimize this perversion or threatening sanctions to those that don’t.
“Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” (Matthew 18:7).
The recent Supreme Court opinion on homosexual marriage is the latest pièce de résistance of moral depravity. In hell-ebration (oops, getting a little ahead of myself) in celebration, the White House was illuminated in “gay pride” rainbow colors. What a terrible shaming of this nation before Almighty God.
Sundry other landmarks were likewise transformed, amongst them Niagara Falls, the “Freedom Tower” in NYC, the Cinderella Castle at Disney World and various state houses and city halls.
The images of defiance and defilement. God saw it all.
I’ve read and heard from those whose souls are vexed by the wickedness around us that God/Jesus must be weeping over our nation. I understand this lament but I must tell you that whatever heavenly tears that have been shed for this once Christian nation trickled down angelic cheeks decades ago when court rulings took God and prayer out of our schools and allowed for the killing of innocent babies through abortion.
More sorrowful than those decrees is the fact that we as a people have accepted these evil rulings as legitimate law. They are not!
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:8).
A court opinion is not law. Only legislatures, within the limits imposed by their respective state or federal constitutions have the authority to make statutes, not governors, presidents or judges.
Said authority is derived from: We the People.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” –Preamble to the US Constitution.
We the People, established the Constitution, and therefore the framework of government, not we the politicians, bureaucrats and unelected appointed judges. As such, government by both establishment and declared function is subservient to We the People. But that’s not how things are, is it?
Because Christians have in large part abdicated our moral authority, duty, faith and nation to the perverse and profane. As a result, we live in a time and place of our own making, where reprobate minds simply make an assertion to the adoring approval of “tolerant” buffoons, no matter the contradictions of basic biology or common sense.
“Name it and claim it” isn’t just for fraud prosperity preachers anymore.
A sickening and sad example is Bruce Jenner. He was once a national hero, winning the 1976 men’s Olympic gold medal in the Decathlon at a time when the US/USSR rivalry was paramount. He wasn’t just a man, he was the man.
What’s changed? Nothing but the times.
Bruce Jenner now claims he’s a woman. What’s mind-boggling is how many confused people believe him and refer to him as “she.” The power of demonic influence should not be underestimated or taken lightly. Only the indwelling of the Holy Spirit can overcome this terrible presence. If you’re not saved, you’re not only at risk, you’re under that dark influence, however it manifests.
I’ll be frank; Bruce Jenner is a male transvestite, not transgender. “Transgender” is a politically correct manufactured term to replace the word “transvestite,” which has a rightfully deserved reprobate connotation attached to it. Mr. Jenner also says he’s not a homosexual, yet he’s dating another male transvestite. His recent attendance at a “gay pride” event in New York is completely unrelated, no doubt.
Am I picking on Bruce? No. It’s he who has placed himself at the center of the public discussion, utilizing the media ad nauseam to crown him as the poster boy for transvestite acceptance. Do you understand that this is an “in-your-face” attack on morality, our culture and nation? I have a God-given right and Christian obligation to respond.
So do you. And you better.
The degenerates aren’t finished, they’re reinvigorated. Practitioners of pedophilia, bestiality, incest, and polygamy need their “rights” too. The ultimate goal is to censor any dissent of evil. No free speech, no freedom of religion. You must accept or be persecuted. It’s happening to Christian business owners around the country. All Christianity is the ultimate goal.
For God’s sake and your own, stand up. We’re under judgment and under attack, not six feet under.
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses” (1 Timothy 6:12).
Need more motivation to live your faith? Jesus stated this truth:
“Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire” (Matthew 7:17-19).
The disciples didn’t look to one another in bewilderment, wondering what “good” and “evil” meant. They knew, as do we. Pretending otherwise doesn’t alleviate one’s responsibility before God. Every good tree brings forth good fruit, according to Jesus. What does our personal fruit look like? Is it good? Is it evil? Or is there no fruit to compare? Only the tree producing good fruit is spared from being cut down and burned.
No fruit makes your only worth as firewood.
In the Garden of Eden, Satan lied to Eve, telling her that she needed to know the difference between right and wrong. Today he lies to the unsaved and tells them there is no right or wrong and to the Christian that we’re not supposed to know the difference!
We’re living under judgment because many who claim to be Christians are buying into and promoting this anti-biblical heresy, including pastors. We can’t judge they say, we can’t stand up to those whose moral decay is rotting our society. We don’t want to offend anyone (except God). We’ll just quietly and passively love them to heaven. Open your eyes and Bibles, this is the devil’s counsel of surrender to secularism.
Then there are those who claim the faith but openly embrace, support and encourage all things homosexual.
Be warned: When you find common ground with Satan you’re sinking in quicksand. Every time.
In Massachusetts, an 18 year-old woman has been charged with manslaughter in the suicide death of her friend. Why? Because she encouraged him to commit suicide, texting him even as he was in the process. A couple of times he wanted to back out but she kept reassuring him. The young man followed through and killed himself.
If even flawed man’s law provides for culpability when a person encourages another to do something unlawful, what do you suppose God’s holy judgment will be against a person who “accepts” and encourages a lost soul to remain in the sin of homosexuality or any sin, to their eternal damnation?
“My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,” (Psalm 44:15)
Singer Miley Cyrus can’t decide her gender. Sometimes she’s male and sometimes she’s female. Just depends. Former Spokane NAACP head Rachel Dolezal is white but identifies with being black, so obviously she’s black; immutable genetics notwithstanding. Unrepentant and “proud” homosexuals claim to be Christians.
These are the children of disobedience, not the children of God.
“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person (inclusive in this is homosexuality), nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them” (Ephesians 5:5-7).
So we struggle with this latest abominable court decision; an affront before, and mockery of, Almighty God. Did your pastor even mention it in church? If he did, was it in passing, then on to the usual pabulum? If it took an evil ruling to prompt a first time address of this subject from the pulpit, such dereliction of pastoral duty serves as an indictment of that ministry. To many a churches’ shame, Bruce Jenner’s not the only one lacking in testosterone in these latter days.
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things” (Philippians 3:18-19).
Find another pastor or find another church. We need strong shepherds, not weak hirelings.
I mentioned earlier that some believe God is weeping for our nation. Friends, go back through the Bible. As history proves, at times such as this, God is not overcome with grief. He’s provoked to anger.
“Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Thus saith the Lord God; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come” (Ezekiel 7:3-5).
What exactly is judgment from God? How is it manifested? What can be expected? The Bible provides us both history and prophecy to answer these questions. Join me for the second part of this article titled, “Living Under Judgment, Part II” coming soon, as the Lord allows and directs.
“See then that ye walk circumspectly (cautiously), not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16-17).
Yes they are.
