A lot of times, those who have the most struggle with sin are those who yell the loudest when you talk about stopping behaviors that strengthen ‘the flesh’ and its lusts.  They defensively proclaim that they have ‘liberty in Christ’.  Well let me ask . . . if that’s YOUR mantra: how’s it working out for you?

Hypothetically it sounds great, but how about some honest self examination . . . in real life, how is your walk? Are you walking in purity, holiness, and righteousness? If not . . . is it just MAYBE possible that living according to your ‘liberty in Christ’ is your downfall? Could masturbation or listening to secular music be making it harder for you to walk righteously (or even some so-called ‘Christian music’)? Are these activities perhaps doorways to strongholds you’ve had (or are now developing) in your life?

When we walk away and shut the door on our past sins (and we must!!), we should understand that playing with the door itself is likely to cause us to want to walk through it again. Don’t even touch the doorknob!

Jesus said:

‘And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast [it] from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.’ (Matthew 5:29-30)

If Jesus advised removing BODY PARTS that led us into sin . . . how much more should we remove BEHAVIORS that lead us into sin? Even Paul noted:

‘All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.’
(1 Corinthians 10:23)

We all like to think we’re the STRONG Christians who can walk in liberty . . . but is that really how it’s playing out in your life? Isn’t it time to be honest with yourself?  Don’t wait around for Jesus to deliver you from sin . . . WALK AWAY!!

This is great!  Check it out!  Pass it on!

“At times some people use force or fraud to take from others without voluntary consent . . . the initiation of force or fraud . . . to take liberty is slavery.
You  have  the right to protect your own life, liberty, and justly acquired property from the forceful aggression of others.
(Elected) officials have no right to murder, to enslave, or to steal.”

Speaking Of Free Speech . . . Are We Listening?

It’s Not About Race At All.  It’s About FREEDOM!

Searching for an article I had previously read, I did a Google search of ‘America Empire’.  It yielded twenty six million hits!  It’s right in front of our eyes, yet hidden in plain sight!

People: ‘Actions speak louder than words’, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’–put aside everything you have been told (about America promoting democracy or protecting its ‘interests’ throughout the world), and let actions speak for themselves!

Here is a picture that’s worth a thousand words:

US military bases

We’re told that we are hated because our enemies ‘hate our way of life’ . . . really?  These people hate freedom and prosperity?  Education and opportunity?  Technological advancement?  Good medical care?  Nah, I’m not buying it.

The few that really DO hate our way of life seem to be opposed to the sexual depravity (and materialism?) that we export worldwide via Hollywood!  (It’s really a shame that the American Church is less discerning, with regards to sin, than the ungodly!)

I believe what our enemies hate most, is to be subjugated!!  They hate our imperialism.  Most Americans are blissfully unaware of that aspect of America.  Who the heck gave us the right to determine what other countries should or should not do if they are living peaceably within their own borders?  By what authority do we create ‘regime change’ or assassinate people in another country?  These are just a couple of the things America engages in, that you may have already heard of.

Do I hate America?  I don’t know–I don’t think so.  I do believe America was chosen, inspired, and established by God–that America I do not hate.  The American people–I do not hate.

The corrupt, depraved, imperialistic, tyrannical beast that America has become, backed by multinational corporations and wealthy elite (this must be what they call the ‘military-industrial complex’)?  I am no fan of this.  Our hedonistic culture–This I hate with a passion!

Do I sympathize with our enemies?  With terrorists?  To the extent that I understand why they hate America–yes. As far as understanding their anger and desperation at being subjugated–yes.  Do I condone their actions? NO!!  EMPHATICALLY, NO!!

Would I be just as frustrated as them, if America were under Soviet or Chinese occupation?  I would imagine so!!  Wouldn’t you?

Under Obama, our dear empire has begun using the same tactics to topple America as it has used to topple and subjugate other countries.  We are being relieved of our ‘favored nation’ status within the empire.  We are being brought down to be on par with the rest of the citizens of this new global empire.

Our economy, our independence, and our pride, will be destroyed–and God will allow it to happen.  The people who are dismantling America are being used as the hand of God, to bring His judgment upon us.  Chaos will overtake America.  But, rather than cry out to God in repentance, we will most likely ‘cry Uncle’ (Sam!).  Once we are totally broken, the empire will create a solution that will be our ‘salvation’. We’ll no longer demand special treatment, our ‘entitlement mentality’ will be broken.  We’ll be humbled and willing to sacrifice everything that was our birthright–just for a bowl of soup.

Our currency will be replaced.  We’ll start out fresh, on a new, ‘level playing field’ with the rest of the world, economically.  Our people will depend on the government.  Our right to choose our own leaders, make our own laws, seek redress in court–will be curtailed.  Our personal liberties and individual rights will be surrendered for ‘security’.  Our laws will no longer have God’s standards and truth as their basis, but will instead be based on the good of the empire, the good of all.

In order to give us the best chance at freedom in a world of sinful men, God inspired a fairly elaborate form of government that depended on a series of checks and balances–this ensured that power was not concentrated in any one part of the government.  He  modeled it on Himself (The Father as law giver, the Holy Spirit as the convictor of sin, Jesus as the righteous judge).

In order to endure, this government would require people of upright character to participate and to make sure that the rules were followed.  This government would be able to withstand attempts by an individual, or even a few people, to bring it down.  What it could not endure was widespread corruption, and collusion in regards to looking for ways around the rules.

As our people became more and more corrupt, and looking for loopholes became the ‘American way’, cracks began to form in the foundation.  Before long, beady-eyed little vermin spotted the openings, enlarged them a bit and began to come in, then bigger ones came along and followed suit.  Soon the whole structure was infested and in danger of toppling. That is where we woke up to find ourselves in 2008.

There seems to be a universal principle that, if you will not show restraint, restraint will be placed upon you by outside forces; if you will not take responsibility, it will be imposed on you by outside forces.  So, if you are not sure what sins America is being judged for, look for what has been taken away, and there you’ll find what we misused.  Look for what restraints are placed upon us, and you’ll see what freedoms we abused.  When we forgot that we were ‘one nation under God’, that there was a God in authority above us, that’s when the trouble began.

While our multinational corporations, government, and military were out conquering and subjugating the rest of the world (under the guise of bringing peace and safety), America enjoyed the spoils.  Most of us weren’t concerned or turned a blind eye–if we were even aware of what was going on.  It’s not like our media was telling us . . .

In fact, for most of us, we were busy pursuing our own happiness and prosperity, and our concerns extended little farther than the boundaries of our own backyards.  Oh sure, we might have volunteered a bit, or written a check here and there–but how often did we protest about . . . anything?  When was the last time any of us spoke up, or protested, on behalf of someone else–even someone in our own community?

Like it or not, we Americans are basically self interested, laid back, ‘live and let live’ kind of people–although we can be compassionate and generous.  It is this laid back attitude of the populace that has allowed those of totally opposite nature to become powerful in America.  And it is because we see ourselves as laid back, ‘live and let live’ people who aren’t hurting anyone else, that we are absolutely perplexed as to why we are hated!  I’ll spell it out again:  it’s because those in power, the ‘elite’, are not like you and I.

Their nature is polar opposite to ours.  They lust for power and wealth and will do anything to have it!  Power corrupts and I would venture to say that many of them are beyond redemption.  We are hated because these are the people that have become the ‘face of America’ to people throughout the rest of the world.  Most of our enemies don’t distinguish the difference between the empire of the American elites, and the actual ‘American People’.  Therefore, Americans are hated all over the world.  (And ‘Christian’ if seen as synonomous with ‘American’, becomes an abomination.)

So . . . now some people are waking up to what is, and has been, going on.  Maybe enough people will wake up and repent, and act, to be able to slow down this train that’s barrelling towards destruction.  I sure hope so!

But you can rest assured that, even if we hold off their (the ‘elite’s’) designs on America for now, in 20 years they will be accomplished, regardless. That is because, they have stolen the hearts and minds of our children, right from under our noses.

It’s Time to Push Back!

Has my silence been giving the wrong impression?

For several decades I have been silent–a spectator. I may have written one or two ‘letters to the editor’, but I’m not sure. I never called in to voice my opinion on a talk radio show. I never held up a sign at a rally. In fact, I’m not sure I ever WENT to a rally!

I am starting to believe that my silence may have spoken louder than words. I think that my failing to exercise my freedom of speech may have given the impression that it wasn’t important to me. That by not giving voice to my opinions, it was assumed I was aligned with the majority.

Well, now I’m ‘going postal’ in the blogosphere. Realizing I might lose my right to speak out, I’ve decided to give my viewpoints while I still can.

Our rights have been eroding for a long time. At first it was our own fault. We willing yielded our right to speak by not exercising it. Later, it began to get a bit uncomfortable as ‘political correctness’ swept the nation, but we submitted to that too. The final stage will be to wrest away from us the portion of that freedom that we have held onto.

This is a pattern that repeats itself all around us. It is a principal by which things in this world operate.

We have realized this to some extent-as summarized by the popular phrase ‘if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it’. This is often referring to physical fitness or mental ability, but it applies across the board. What you don’t use, you will ultimately lose.

Take another example from nature. Things have a way of encroaching. If you take time to notice, many weeds creep into your lawn, or garden, from around the edges. Let’s say you take a laid back approach when you mow. You hate to do it so you rarely do. When you get around to it there are thick weeds and small saplings around the edges. So, being laid back, you don’t feel like confronting them and you mow around them. Each time you mow, you give up a little more of your yard because they keep encroaching, pushing further and further in.

Freedom is not a natural state. There is always something encroaching. If you aren’t willing to risk a confrontation, you will end up ceding more and more of your liberty. Our founders knew this and they put in place checks and balances. They realized that, being most closely woven into our lives, our government would be our first greatest threat. Outside enemies come in second. The greatest threats to our liberty are going to come from within.

To keep your freedom you must, at the very least, hold onto the territory that you already have. In America we have certain rights, but if we don’t exercise them, we will find them gone. Most of us probably thought it was enough to put our rights up on a shelf–handy and close, if the occasion should arise that we needed to exercise them. Now, if I leave my car parked in the driveway for twenty or thirty years, I’d be foolish to expect it to work properly when the need arises. So it is with our rights.

If you prize your rights, you’d better use them! Even if it just means taking them down off the shelf every few months, and using them to keep in practice. When you don’t exercise your rights, you imply that you may be willing to surrender them.

It’s time to fight back against the encroachment. It’s time to push back! And this time, lets not be content just to preserve our original boundaries. While we’re at it, lets push farther and take some new ground!

Our first & second Amendment rights are the most in peril right now.

“Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

‘Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.’

It’s time to hold a ‘fire drill’! Please:

* Choose a religion and exercise it!
* Speak out boldly!
* Support the press that tells the truth.
* Assemble peacefully.
* Petition the government as often as necessary.
* Buy a weapon for self defense.

Even if these are things you don’t ordinarily do–in fact, ESPECIALLY if these are things you don’t ordinarily do-do them now! Let me give you some good reasons to:

* You care most about what you are invested in. If you choose a religion, speak out, watch the news, assemble peacefully, sign petitions and buy a weapon, you are going to notice when someone attempts to take that right away from you, and you are going to care!
* Our exercise of our rights makes it clear to those who would take them that: we value our rights, we will notice if they attempt to take them away, and we will probably fight to preserve them. Using your rights can be a powerful deterrent to those who would think to take them away.
* If anyone DOES attempt to rob us of those rights, a great cry will go up, that people all around the world will witness. Most evil prefers to operate in secret!

Let’s push back–hard!!

America–Hijacked!!
Is The Transformation To Communism Already Well Underway?

 

 

(Continued from Part 1, ‘Oh Yes He Does Get It’)

You know what, this world is not my home. I’m just a traveler and this is a brief stop on my way home. A rest stop on the way to eternity. If everybody really wants a one world government, and I can see some justifications for it, then let them have it! But they should be careful what they wish for! What we first submit to willingly, becomes a yoke of iron upon our necks!

There WILL BE one world government. I don’t want to see it happen, because I’ve read the end of the book–I KNOW how that turns out! But, if that’s what the people are ready for, so be it. This has been a free country. If the last free choice made BY THE PEOPLE is to surrender that freedom, then fine.

But I am MAD AS HELL, that it is being foisted upon us! This is not what the majority of Americans want! And may I be so bold as to say, if that is what you want, then leave! We wish to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave! I still have the right to speak, the right to vote, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. How dare you try to take that from me!

Most of the rest of the world loves your ideas–so go somewhere else and join them! Leave those of us who prize our freedom to live in our own little country and mind our own business! (That’s really what we should have been doing all along! Instead, we seem to have initiated this whole global domination thing, but in a benign way, of course . . . ?)

As I said, there WILL BE one world government, but NOT IN MY BACKYARD! If that is what you want, do it somewhere else! You are not going to have my help to begin it here in America!!

People, please wake up and exercise your rights while you still have them. Obama is not the antichrist, but he foreshadows him. The antichrist will be like Obama but bigger, faster, more charming, more cunning, more deceptive, more popular, more powerful, more audacious. And he WILL be the leader of this world government that is coming.

If you can’t see beyond Obama’s facade, how are you ever going to recognize the antichrist when he comes? If you are a little uncomfortable with the changes now, but not enough to act–how comfortable do you think you will be when the antichrist takes the reigns? Unless God intervenes, with the path that we are now on, the antichrist will be our next leader!!
