Our legal system seems to be usurping our rights on every front.  First, it was activist judges ruling according to their own political beliefs and setting legal precedents  (thus ‘legislating from the bench’).

Recently, in Indiana,  Justice Steven David ruled that Indiana citizens have

“no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers. We believe however that a right to resist unlawful police entry is … incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.” “

Can this be right–a judge has ruled that Indiana citizens do not have the right to resist if police violate their constitutional rights by barging into their home when they wish?

This led to  Newton County Sheriff (Don Hartman) making comments to the effect that he would conduct door to door, warrantless searches if he deemed it necessary!

Let this be a reminder that there are people, especially in law enforcement, who find it . . .  inconvenient . . . for us to have Constitutional rights.  Now that things have started to go their way, they are going to push it as far as they can.

People in Indiana had better treat this like any other type of bullying–fight back and don’t stop until they cry for mercy!  Meaning:  resist, and use every legal means to bring these plans to a halt!

Every time I turn around, I hear of another incursion against our Constitutionally protected rights.  Let me repeat again here–yes, there are threats of terror, etc.  But the case is being overstated, exaggerated and used as a rationale for stripping us of our rights.

As I’ve said in many other posts, I believe America is being judged by God.  Lets remember that the laws our nation was founded upon originated with God, and He wants us to uphold them.  (It’s another matter when the laws of men run counter to the laws of God.)

We have become a nation of law breakers, and we think little of it.  It is no longer a mark of shame to be a felon.  Look at all the celebrities that are, and no one seems to think any less of them!

By becoming lawless, we have disrespected God and opened the door to tyranny.  In large part this growing ‘police state’ is the consequence for our misbehavior.  However, not all of us are misbehaving.  And, as they say, ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’.  Just because the people are not following the law does not make it right for the government to break it too.

We still have (some of) our Constitutional rights, but we are losing them fast.  Those who are creating the police state are using the argument that the Constitution no longer fits the reality of today.   This broad shift to lawlessness, over the past few generations, is making their case for them.  (Notice Judge David’s use of the word ‘modern’, above.)

I see two things that need to happen, and quickly, if we wish to turn this around.

  1. Repent–in other words, do your part to return to behaving lawfully.  Show respect for God’s law.  Don’t only obey when you think you’ll get caught if you don’t.
  2. Resist.  Know your rights and use them.  Patiently and calmly resist tyranny.  Stand on your rights–the ones you voluntarily give up today will be legally taken from you tomorrow.

I’m going to include links to a couple of videos because, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  I want you to see how the mindset of law enforcement personnel has changed.  Somehow, in the last few years, they have begun to view the American people as an enemy.  From the things I am seeing lately, the attitude appears to be widespread.  It is an attitude that is very confrontational, intimidating, and arrogant.

As you watch these videos (and please do watch them!),  notice the bullying attitude of law enforcement.  Also, please pay careful attention to those who are standing on their rights . . . firmly, but respectfully.

Here are a few notable quotes from the first video.

‘Citizen ignorance of the law sometimes allows police to get away with more than they otherwise would’

‘Not everybody knows what the law is and sometimes not even all the  police officers know what the law is’

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Eugene Volokh, law professor, UCLA  (http://volokh.com/)

I probably wouldn’t even be writing this post, except that I watched the entire second video last night (2 hours, it moves kind of slowly).  What I saw there is what I want you to see–the relentless attack on our freedom, by police who were standing on their self-vperceived authority, but not standing on the law.  (They forget that the only authority they have is that which is granted by law–and that WE hire them to protect US. )

Even if you disagree with the ideas presented in the second video, I hope that you will watch to see what I am talking about–to see how our rights are being infringed on and how, today in America, people who have different views are being demonized.

(The whole point of the second video is that there are people whose questions are not being answered, who are being ignored, and who deserve compensation for injuries that they are not receiving.  The video shows their quest to be heard.)

Again, back to a very important point made by Eugene Volokh (law professor, UCLA ):

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Sometimes this is intentional–when police deliberately cause people to believe they have authority backing them up.  I saw a quote from Don Hartman (the Indiana sheriff that wants to do warrantless door to door searches).  His point was that he felt people would be glad to comply if they felt it would help law enforcement find a suspect.

This is sad because it’s true–and because the people we are supposed to be able to trust are deliberately misleading us into surrendering our rights.

Most people would open the door and gladly let them in.  But your Constitutional rights say you don’t have to, unless you are presented with a search warrant.  I advise that you don’t.  Even if you have nothing to hide. 

The issue here is not whether there is something or someone in your home that shouldn’t be.   The issue isn’t about being nice, respectful, and cooperative.  The issue is that law enforcement has become a bully who is now bent on taking away your rights–so you’d better stand your ground!

You may not need to use your 4th Amendment right, but you had better stand on it anyhow–because if everyone starts surrendering it voluntarily, it will make the case that the citizens no longer feel it is relevant, and it will be much easier to legally overturn it.

The other point made, in the first video,  is that some issues (such as who, what, where, and when you may videotape), still have no firm legal precedent.  The way that the law will be written (either to protect our right to videotape, or to deny it) is by having a legal precedent set.  Then lawyers will carry out the debate and a judge will decide.

Legal precedent is set when someone goes to court over an issue–in other words, someone gets in trouble over the issue, and they fight back in court and say they have the right to do what they did.  Then lawyers carry out the debate and a judge  decides. The judge’s decision is usually appealed  and the case then moves higher and higher through the court system until it is finally decided.

So, do not be afraid of getting in trouble for standing your ground.  If the police cannot give you a specific statute that you are violating, or they give you one that you know doesn’t fit the circumstances, stand your ground.  If you do get in trouble, in a case like that there are organizations that will provide your legal defense (I believe it’s usually free), for the opportunity to argue the subject in court in order to set legal precedent.  You can also publicize your case by notifying the media, or organizations that are trying to raise public awareness over the issue.

Remember, this is how bullies work: by intimidation.  (It is the same tactic terrorists use.)  They prey on people’s fears.  The only way to deal with a bully is in the same vein.

Notice, in the videos, that when people stand firm (and have videotape evidence!), the police will retreat to the bounds set for them by the law–but it only seems to happen when people persist in standing their ground.  In other words, they will eventually stop bullying you, when they realize it isn’t going to work and they can’t trap you into doing something wrong.  (I can’t stress enough the importance of being courteous, calm and non-threatening!!)

People, whether we like it or not, things are changing.  Even Amish dairy farmers are being bullied!  Allowing yourself to be intimidated will not buy you peace!  (And there is a name for those who cave to intimidation:  cowards. )

The more you surrender, the more a bully will demand.  If you want to have any freedom and liberty at all, you are going to have to find the courage to stand for what you know is right.

If you aren’t up for the fight, you had better find a big rock to hide you and your family under–and good luck to you.

It used to be that you could just mind your own business and you’d be ok–but times have changed.  This is not a case  of people having confrontation because they ‘went looking for it’, or lived a life that pushed the limits.  Now, confrontation comes to those who are obeying the law and doing things that the Constitution says we have the right to do.

If we don’t stop this in its tracks, it will get worse.  Then you will see the day when confrontation overturns every rock just to find you!

Jesus predicted Islam (emphases mine):

“All this I have told you so that you will not go astray.  They will put you out of the synagogue;

in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God.  They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.

I have told you this, so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you.”  (from John 16: 1-4)

I was sent a link, as part of a comment to a previous post. In that link, passages from the Bible and the Koran are twisted together to make a case for the opinion that Jesus foretold the coming of Muhammad–that Muhammad was the one referred to as ‘The Counselor’ or ‘The Holy Spirit’.  One of the passages quoted from is John 14, another is from John 16.

I recently wrote posts on John 14, John 15, and John 16, giving correct interpretations.  In this post I will summarize the passages from those chapters that speak about The Counselor aka The Holy Spirit. Hopefully it will be apparent to you that these passages do not foretell the coming of Muhammad–or of any man.

Here are the passages in John 14, 15 and 16 that speak of  The Comforter/The Holy Spirit:

“If you love me, you will obey what I command.   And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever–  the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”  (John 14: 14-16)

“All this I have spoken while still with you.  But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”   (John 14: 25-26)

“When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.  And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.”  (John 15: 26-27)

“. . . It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.  When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:  in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.

“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.   But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.  He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.  All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.”  (John 16: 6-15)

According to the article (that puts forth the twisted assumption that Muhammad is The Holy Spirit that Jesus promised would come):

“This prophecy clearly lays down that:

1. The Comforter will come after the departure of Jesus.
2. When the Comforter comes, he will reprove the world of sin, truth and justice.
3. He will guide the world into all truth.
4. The book revealed to him will contain no human word.
5. He will foretell things to come.
6. He will glorify Jesus and clear him of all charges.

Now when we take this prophecy point by point, it is unmistakably proven that it applies to none else but the Holy Prophet Muhammad. He came after Jesus. The Comforter was supposed to reprove the followers of Jesus. Obviously, he could not be a Christian or a Jew .The prophecy must relate to one who would belong to another people but should respect Jesus and promote reverence for him. The Holy Prophet was neither Jew nor a Christian. He was an Ishmaelite. But he defended the honor of Jesus.”

Let me restate these points, with my own comments added:

1. The Comforter will come after the departure of Jesus.
2. When the Comforter comes, he will reprove the world of sin, truth and justice.

A subtle twisting of words, but what the Scripture says is that

“When he comes, he will convict* the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment”

*convict: expose; show one his fault; cause to feel shame

3. He will guide the world into all truth.
4. The book revealed to him will contain no human word.

No such thing is stated.  What IS said is that the Holy Spirit will not speak His own thoughts, but only what He hears from the Father, and what He has heard from Jesus–and He will teach the meaning of Jesus’ parables.

5. He will foretell things to come.
6. He will glorify Jesus and clear him of all charges.

Clear Him of all charges?  No mention of that here.  He will glorify Jesus by opening the eyes of His (Jesus’) followers to the meaning of His words.

All it takes is a little twist to give words a completely different meaning.  Words are necessary to convey thoughts, but if thoughts can be conveyed directly, words are secondary.

When a Christian reads Gods Word (the Bible), the Holy Spirit conveys its meaning to his heart.   When nonChristians read the Bible, all they have are the words–hence the many disputes over the meaning of words and passages, and the habit of  taking things out of context.

When someone uses Bible passages to convey a meaning different than God intended, the Holy Spirit alerts the believer, bringing to mind both God’s intended meaning and other relevant Scriptures.

Here are some other passages that speak about the Holy Spirit:

“I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.  After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

. . .  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.”  Acts 1: 1-9

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God‑fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.  Utterly amazed, they asked: “Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language?

Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome  (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs–we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine. ”

“Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.  These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning!  No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

” ‘In the last days, God says,

I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy,

your young men will see visions,

your old men will dream dreams.

Even on my servants, both men and women,

I will pour out my Spirit in those days,

and they will prophesy.

I will show wonders in the heaven above

and signs on the earth below,

blood and fire and billows of smoke.

The sun will be turned to darkness

and the moon to blood

before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

And everyone who calls

on the name of the Lord will be saved.’”   Acts 2: 1-21)

“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.  This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.  But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”  (Acts 2: 22-24)

God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.  Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.  (Acts 2: 32-33)
“”Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.   The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.””  (Acts 2: 36-39)

Speaking of the passage in John 16 the article says:

“Now when we take this prophecy point by point, it is unmistakably proven that it applies to none else but the Holy Prophet Muhammad.”

How so?  And “unmistakably proven” by whom?  Here the author uses an authoritative tone and words to convince the reader that the matter has already been settled.  This conclusion has been drawn by taking one passage out of context, twisting its words and excluding other relevant Scriptures.

“He came after Jesus. The Comforter was supposed to reprove the followers of Jesus.”

Whoa!  Didn’t you just say

“2. When the Comforter comes, he will reprove the world of sin, truth and justice.”

So, in the end, the author has twisted the Scripture which says

“He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.”

to

“The Comforter was supposed to reprove the followers of Jesus”.

Either from this misunderstanding, or out of thin air, the author draws the conclusion that

“Obviously, he could not be a Christian or a Jew .”

Not only is it not ‘obvious’, there is nothing to support this conclusion.  But all that is beside the point, because the Holy Spirit is not a human being!!

“The prophecy must relate to one who would belong to another people but should respect Jesus and promote reverence for him. The Holy Prophet was neither Jew nor a Christian. He was an Ishmaelite. But he defended the honor of Jesus.”

Jesus warned us about false prophets, saying that many would even say He was the messiah, yet would deceive many.  So, simply ‘defending the honor of Jesus’ does not qualify one as a true prophet of Jehovah.  Especially when one goes on to say:

“Here the Holy Quran specifically says that Jesus was saved from that accursed death designed for him by his enemies. However, they only suspected that they had succeeded in crucifying him. But Allah had not only saved him but admitted him to the circle of His favored ones.”

Yes, you read it right–Islam denies that Jesus actually died on the cross. Therefore Islam denies Jesus’ resurrection, and invalidates the Bible’s promise that His death served as a substitute and payment for our sins.  It also denies the truth of God’s Word, saying that Jesus’ death was a hoax.

None of this should come as a surprise to most people yet, undoubtedly, there are still some people who are mired in the lies told in defense of Islam–and who still believe that Christianity and Islam are compatible and that we serve the same God/god.

Muhammad was neither holy, nor a prophet of God.  The article goes on to say, about Muhammad:

“He led an ideal life, a perfect example to be followed throughout the future.”

By today’s standards, Muhammad was a pedophile, a wife beater, a liar, and a murderer, among other things.  If one is to pronounce him a ‘perfect example’ and say he led an ‘ideal life’, I have to ask: by whose standards was he judged?  How does he fare when judged by the standards of Jehovah?

Jesus lived a perfect life.  No sin was found in Him–ever.  He alone can be judged by the standards of Jehovah and pronounced ‘perfect’ and ‘without spot or blemish’.

Again, from the article:

“The prophecy had said: “He will guide you unto all truth”. Again Muhammad was the only prophet who claimed to have brought a universal and perfect law.”

And because he claims something, it is so?!   At any rate, Muhammad’s claim to have brought a universal and perfect law would have nothing to do with a Scripture verse foretelling that the Holy Spirit would guide believers “into all truth” (convey the true meaning of God’s Word to us as we study it).

Furthermore, God is the lawgiver–not Moses, not Muhammad.  Jesus lived according to all of God’s laws, thus fulfilling them.  He brought us a greater law–a law that fulfills all the others, if we live it: the law of love.

He who loves his brother does not steal from him, sleep with his wife, give false testimony about him, murder him, or covet what he has.  He who loves his wife does not beat her or break her heart by sleeping with another.  He who loves his children is not harsh with them, nor does he spoil them.  He who loves his parents respects and honors them.

He who loves God (Jehovah) will have no gods beside Him (nor make or worship idols).  He who loves God (Jehovah) will not use God’s (Jehovah’s) name in vain, nor use it in ways that would bring dishonor to Him.  He who loves God (Jehovah) will observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.

I defy any Muslim to convince me that Muhammad’s ‘perfect’ Sharia law is superior to Jesus’ law of love!

Sharia, as with any other man-made law, is a twisted web of regulations.  But, unlike western law, Sharia is enforced by draconian punishments such as amputations, hanging and beheading!

God (Jehovah) gave us His laws, not because they had the power to make us obedient, but in order that we would see that we are unable to fulfill them! His Holy Spirit works with His laws, to convince men of their sinfulness, and their inability to live a life of perfection–to lead them to repent and seek mercy from God, in order to save their souls.

Without the power of God’s Holy Spirit within us, none of us is able to keep the law.  We are all sinners and none of us is truly able to reflect the character and likeness of God by our own efforts.  Nevertheless, Jehovah is a God of mercy, and of free will.  Every single person is valuable to him.

Sharia is a system of regulations, based on fear of punishment, that seeks to dominate and control every human being on the face of the earth . . . a system that would cause a man to beat his wife into submission. . . or to murder his daughter to save his own honor . . . or to kill innocents for the ‘glory’ (and blood lust) of his god.  The god ‘Allah’ is the author of this cruel system of domination.

Contrast Allah with Jehovah, The One who grants us each free will, yet freely pardons those who turn from their wicked ways . . . Jehovah, the God who sent His own son to live a sinless life and die on our behalf–so that we can have peace, abundance, love, joy, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness and self control.  Jehovah, whose law is fair and just, and based in love.

No, Sharia law can’t hold a candle to that!  And that is why Allah must resort to deception, fear, intimidation and punishment.  Contrary to what Islam claims, NO ONE is born a Muslim.  Every child is born free, and each person has the right, and the obligation, to choose which God/god he will serve.

Islam, The Religion of Peace

What Is The Gospel?

Here’s The Deal . . .

You can’t be a follower of Jesus and be politically correct.

Q:  Who benefits from the whole absurd notion of ‘political correctness’?

A:  Those who practice and/or promote evil.

Political correctness is merely a form of intimidation meant to silence those who would speak the truth.  A form of intimidation . . . a provoking of fear . . .

‘For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self‑discipline.’  II Timothy 1:7

 

If you are so easily intimidated by societal pressure to be politically correct, then I seriously question your ability to endure in the face of real persecution!

In fact, I wonder about your level of commitment to Jesus Christ.  Did you decide to be a Christian because of your dedication to Jesus Christ and the truth and love He embodies–or because of  ‘what’s in it for you’?

“Then [Jesus] called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life  will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.

What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.””    Mark 8:34-38

 

Is telling the truth, in the face of man’s displeasure, too great a burden for you to bear?  Is it too embarrassing to uphold the way of truth and love, when those around you are swimming in a cesspool of sin and perversion?  Is maintaining their favorable opinion of you more important to you than being faithful to God?

For example, God’s Word says:

“ ‘If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.’”  Leviticus 20:13

and

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.”  Romans 1: 25-27

 

Gay Couple

Gay Couple

(In Leviticus 20, there are many other practices which are mentioned and condemned.  However, homosexuality is the one I have chosen for an illustration, because it is one of the ‘freedoms’ that is so zealously guarded by political correctness.)

The passages above clearly spell out that homosexuality is a sin, a perversion, unnatural, detestable, shameful, indecent, and a capital offense.  It also implies that illnesses such as AIDS may be the ‘due penalty’ for such perversion.

Christian: are you ashamed that God’s Word says such things?  Have you become so influenced by political correctness that you feel more shame over God’s Word and His attitude towards sin, than you feel towards the sin itself?

If so, I hope you are jolted enough by the realization to hit your knees and repent!  It is definitely time to turn off your TV and start spending time with God.

One sunny morning, a pilot sets off across the ocean for a distant land. His fuel tank is just large enough to hold enough fuel for the voyage, and maybe a hundred miles extra. Early into his flight, it comes to his attention that he has erred in his navigation, and is a couple of degrees off course. When do you suppose that pilot will make the necessary correction?

If he corrects soon enough, he will only have flown a small distance more than planned. However, if he waits until later to correct, he will have to make a major change, and will have wasted much fuel going in the wrong direction. In fact, if he waits too long to correct, he will run out of fuel and meet destiny at the bottom of the ocean!

America is on the wrong course! As Christians, we are losing our freedoms and rights at an amazing pace! The assault on our liberties was designed to be a blitz attack–so that by the time we figured out what was going on, it would be too late.

We had better start using all the freedoms we have!! For too long we have been voluntarily coerced to refrain from speaking, by the doctrine of ‘political correctness’. Now, we are facing the likely prospect of ‘hate speech’ legislation. There seems to be a principle, that what you give up voluntarily, will later be ‘set in stone’ as law.  People, we can see the storm clouds gathering on the horizon–the time for denial is past!

If you are thinking that, by speaking out and exercising your liberties, it will just draw attention to you and create the persecution you would rather avoid, you may be right–but consider this: we have been quiet, we have been polite, we have been politically correct, yet we have been continually pressured to retreat, to ‘cede more ground’. Now we are expected to be silent in the face of all sorts of abominations!

The hour is late, but speaking out now is better than speaking out never!  Sure, there is much opposition now–but do you think it will lessen in time?

If you find it too hard to speak out now, when it is merely unpopular–how will you have the courage to speak out later, when it is illegal? Don’t count on being courageous tomorrow, if you won’t act with courage today! Courage is built, gradually, upon past experience in being courageous. Conversely, giving in to fear and intimidation only tend to reinforce your tendency to be fearful and intimidated!

And, as Christians, there is one other important factor to consider–the most important one–the God factor!  It pleases God when people act for truth and righteousness, against overwhelming odds, relying on Him for help!!  God can do amazing things!

Do you realize, that if enough people in America repent, and plead with God for mercy, He may relent of judging America now? Be it that He spares America, as an island in the midst of worldwide suffering, or that He postpones the inevitable–it is worth a try people!!  Do not give up hope in the mercy and compassion of our God!!  Have the audacity to trust in Him and ask great things of Him!!

We have failed Him and brought dishonor to His name!  Lets repent and act courageously!  Lets turn things around in America!! Lets wage war on ungodliness!  Lets make abortion illegal!  Lets turn the tide on homosexuality and the indoctrination of our children in the public schools!  Lets push back the unholy tide of Islam and restore Christianity to our schools and our courts!  God is big enough!! He is the God of David,  not Goliath!  He is with the small and weak, that are courageous enough to try great things for His glory!!  Let us go forth to battle, with faith in Him!

Even so, we may die–but better to die honorably, in His service, than to die as cowards and faithless!  Mark my words, the days are coming when you will either deny God (by your words or your actions) or you will be put to death.  Your silence and retreat will not hide you–they will only serve to hasten the arrival of that day.


We Will Turn The World Upside Down!!
