America Today

As a Child of God, you MUST be mad.

We live in a Nation where we have "One Nation Under God," as a stated belief. "In God We Trust," on our money. Our Declaration of Independence starts out like this..
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
U. S. Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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. 
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.
Today? We do not even know who God is. We have removed Him from our schools. We have forbid Him in Government, and we have forbid Him in public life. We attack those that have faith in God, and the Gospels , as a simpleton, Racist, Bigoted, Chauvinistic, "Homophobes." Who are just too stupid to understand what is best for them and the country.

We live in a country where we call Sin good, and Good sin. We live in a country where we teach our young, that from nothing, came one single cell something, and from that, came all life as we know it today. Setting aside that the Theory of Evolution is both Scientifically and Mathematically impossible, there is no God.

As a nation, we also violate the Ten Commandments daily. So to recap. We violate God's Laws. Remove God from Public life. We have stopped teaching Him in our Schools. We attack those that are His children and those that believe in Him. We declare "One Nation Under God," and "In God We Trust." Yet, we do all these things, and we wonder WHY there is a moral decline in this country?

Again, you can find the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 5. Lets look at some of the ways, that we, as a nation that was founded on the Judeo-Christian belief system, has fallen so far away from it.

First, we are here for Freedom. The very first Amendment is Freedom OF Religion and Freedom of Speech. We came here because we were being oppressed by a tyrannical government, run by the Church of England. You had no choice. You had no free will. You believed as you were told to.

THAT is what the Amendment is all about. That is want the meaning is behind it. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." In other words Congress will not ESTABLISH a National Religion, creating laws for everyone to worship the way they say. It does not mean, never has meant, that if you allow someone to say a prayer to Jesus at a High School Football game, you are violating the Constitution. It is freedom OF, not freedom FROM.

Have no other Gods before God. Yet, we say, believe in whatever god you chose. If it is not "our God" it's OK. You have that right to worship the god you chose. Now, many years latter, Money has become some people's God. Banks, our churches. Many have chosen, through the lack of teaching the Truth, that there is no god to them. So they worship at the alter of self. They are their gods.

Do not commit Idolatry. We have Idols all over the place. Secular and Religious. We idolize people. We even have TV Shows the claim they will make you the next Idol Then, as God was telling us about Idols, He also mentioned this.

Astrology and Witchcraft

Deuteronomy 4:
19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which theLord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
Now, of course, Evolution is all part of this as well. The Universe just happened. The majesty of it just came about. We must worship at the alter of Mother Earth. That is why scams like Global Warming works. They have turned it into a Religion. Think about that.

Christianity has a God. Christianity has Heaven and Hell. To get to Heaven, you have to accept the Savior. Follow what He says. Do His will. Give of yourself. If you sin, and do not become repentant, you do not accept the key, the gift that is Salvation, you go to Hell.

GW has Mother earth. GW has a savior. Al Gore. You must do what he says, follow his commandments. If you do, you will go to heaven. A clean, and healthy earth. One that will grant you long life and life for your children. You have to give of yourself, your money. You have to buy carbon offsets from the companies that are being set up. Like the one Al Gore owns. The one he buys from. Then you can be absolved of your sins. But if you sin, say fail to change your light bulbs, then you are evil. You will go to hell. A dead earth that will destroy you and generations to come.

Both are absolutes. There is no questioning. No debating. Both are facts that the followers will fight to their dying breath to convert you. Neither will be swayed from their convictions. To true believers, it is insane that you do not see the "reality" of the situation. That is why it works.

How many of you know someone, that religiously checks out what their Horoscope says? They may even think twice before going out, if their Horoscope says it's going to be a bad day. What's your sign? Are these harmless fun things? Or is there much much more?

What about Witchcraft? Well, that's just silly. None of that is real. It nonsense. Is it? According to...
Deuteronomy 18:
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
Would you tell your child, please do not reach into the refrigerator, for you will get burned? No. Why. Because that is not true. It will not happen. Would you warn someone not to deal with the talking tree in your back yard? No. Why? Because it is not real.

God is warning His children to stay away from Witchcraft, not because it is not real, but rather, because it IS. Or else, why warn against it? What are ghosts? I have no idea. Are they real? I believe they can be. Are they deceased loved ones? I don't know. I believe the Word of God, when it says

2 Corinthians 5:8
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Yet? Remember when Jesus met and talked with Elias and Moses. 

Mark 9:
3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
So what are we to think then? Either one can pass between Heaven and Earth at Will, no longer being flesh, they would be spirits or ghosts. Or they are still with us awaiting the rapture. However, we also know that Angels can communicate with the flesh man, as there are many examples of this.

Remember also, "Demons" are nothing more than the third of the Angels that followed Lucifer. We know, that God works in supernatural ways. He IS supernatural. Jesus worked in supernatural ways as well as the Saints. The supernatural is VERY real. Remember...

Hebrews 13:
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
The problem is, if God does not arrange it, you have no idea who you are really dealing with. You may very well be opening a doorway to something you do not want. That may not be Grandma you are talking to. How serious is God about this?

Leviticus 20:
27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
I think God is pretty serious. Of course I am not advocating you go find the local Medium in your town and stone them to death. I would simply admonish you to stay away from them. Most are fakes and frauds to begin with. They are out to get your money. But then again, you never know.

Lets look at the change in our language. Remember when comedians were funny, because they were. Not because of the number of curse words they could throw in there. Remember when Parents admonished their children on who they should speak. Remember when Hell was actually a bad word, and Jesus THE Christ was Lord only? When if you said "God Damn You" you actually meant it?

Do not take the Lord Thy God's name in Vain.

Yes. He means it. "It's just words?" Nope. It's not. Remember the story in....

Leviticus 24:
11 And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)

12 And they put him in ward, that the mind of the Lord might be shewed them.

13 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

14 Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.

16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.
Just Words? Remember, when you reject God and His Godhead, you are also taking His name in vain. Look at how we have rejected God in our public school system. LOOK at our public school system. We went from talking and chewing gum being offenses, to now Rape and Murder is the tread. The problem with removing God, is something WILL, take His place.

What about the Sabbath? Remember the Blue Law? The Blue Law stated that no business could be open on Sunday. This was a time for Family and Worship. A day of rest. Then, in the sixties and seventies, people started protesting and, yes of course, suing, saying that these Laws, violated the Constitution. Which of course they don't, but some have been repealed, other have simple been forgotten. Businesses starting opening on Sundays.

Now today, we live in a twenty four, seven, society. In most cases, out of necessity, even if the children have two parents, both have to work to make ends meet. Some work during the day, some at night, some over night. Some on weekends, Holidays, ETC. Sometimes we are too busy doing stuff, we forget, we need to rest. To recharge. What happens when you run something too long without recharging it? It dies.

The Family? Honor your Father and Mother?

We have become a Nation of orphans. We have removed the importance of Marriage and replaced it with Do as you will. Sad number of people enter into Marriage saying this is my first. Ask many today, and they will tell you this is their second or even third. Gone are the days when "Til Death Do Us Part" actually meant it. Divorce is so easy nowadays. Even some of our Churches have a method where they can absolve you. Make it as if you were never Married.

The Feminist movement started to teach women that Motherhood was something to be looked down upon. That it was beneath you. They started teaching women that they should be equal to men in every way. That career was more important than family. More and more women decided that they would stop looking to "settle down" and started thinking that they didn't need a man. A Family. They could do everything on their own. Kids even started to, and still are today, seen by some Feminists and "Progressives" as a punishment, or a burden, instead of what they are, a Blessing.

Government, got into an area they should have never been in. Marriage is now, and always has been, between one man, one woman, and God. Period. Government has no place in religion at all. No place in Marriage at all. Now there is a move by some to include in the "Official Definition" of Marriage, Homosexual Marriage. They want it recognized by the Government as equal to actual Marriage. Again, One man, one woman, God. For life.

Government has created plans and polices, where women that have children, without a man in the house, can get "free money." Have more kids, get more money. Government has also slowly entered into the family. Interfering with the Parent Child relationship. Limiting the Parent's involvement in education. Telling kids, there is no god. Telling kids, it's OK for Suzy to have two mommies. Telling kids that they are not unique or different than anyone else. That we are all the same. If the kids do not have "good" Mommies or Daddies, no worries, Government will take care of all your needs from cradle to the grave.

They have just recently tried to take away the Parents Right to know if their Child has an Abortion. Your child can't get an Aspirin in school, but they want them to be able to Murder and innocent life without the Parents knowledge. We'll talk more abort Abortion coming up.

Even if the child is blessed with two Parents, it is all but expected that they will drop them off, from babies, to strangers to raise, so that they may make ends meet. Worse, single Parent homes are on the rise, mostly with just a Mommy. But that's OK. Government will be your Daddy.

This is why it is so very important for you as a Parent, to lay a solid foundation for your Child. The Word declares.... 

Proverbs 22:
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
What about Homosexuality? Society as a whole, is slowly, but increasingly accepting this as normal. People have attempted to equate Homosexuality to Slavery. A new Civil Rights Movement. It's not even close. People are attempting to FORCE people to accept it. FORCE, through laws, people to not only accept it, but forbid, even Churches from speaking against it. America, be careful.

How does God see Homosexuality? Both against Him, and Nature. And that, is what we will be talking about next time, as we continue in this series, America Today.

Until next time, be blessed, and Jesus IS Lord!
