Crisis in America

What type of spirit has been unleashed in America and why?

Recently a church in Florida, no a mega-church, saw two girls who had been connected by their youth group hung themselves, one on one day and the other on he next, for no apparent reason other than possibly being depressed.

There have been a couple headline making shootings in the USA recently. In El Paso, the male shooter was a racist and the other a Fauxcahontas Warren supporter from Ohio; both were left-wing liberals. The media tried to portray them otherwise but the facts could not remain completely suppressed for long. Both of those individuals were demented enough to kill innocent people.

Many people are asking “Why” and there are some leftist politicians almost gleefully claiming that guns are the problem but that is a pretty lame claim, not to mention dishonest on their part. We have a MORALITY CRISIS in America; not a gun crisis. Prior to the rapid moral deconstruction that began in the early 1960s mass shootings were rare, very rare. Psychotropic drugs, violent video games, Molech worship, and Political Correctness are all common threads, not to mention power-hungry leftist politicians, connecting threads pushing the social breakdown that is sending people over the edge.

We need a spiritual awakening from coast to coast, as politics never have and never will solve the challenges of a soul that is darkened by sin and possessed by demons.

Ephesians 6:12

The church has collectively sat on their hands and allowed the ungodly to sow their seeds of immorality throughout our society. The ungodly fruit is rancid. It is time to throw of the shackles of political correctness, pray to the Lord of the harvest and take a stand against the evil forces that have come into our country.

That fake journalist knew he was lying throughout his whole “report” and it is well overdue for libel charges to be brought to bear on these fake journalists and fake-news organizations. Their slanderous actions have severely hurt many people and they should have to make full reparations for purposely lying in order to promote their agenda without regard for truth.

WHoly Christian, Wake up Call part two

Excerpt from my book “WHoly Christian”:

Pray for wisdom.  We are once again living in a time when it is not particularly popular for people to speak up for their faith in Christ Jesus or be so audacious as to say the Bible is true and it is God’s message to humanity.  Openly mock Jesus and His followers? No problem.  Dare to proclaim Jesus as the one who has changed you life and can positively change the lives of others?  “Houston, we have a problem.”

In his day, G. K. Chesterton commented on the prevailing attitude of that day regarding Christianity.  Middle aged and older Americans can remember when the pendulum had swung in favor of Christianity and the prevailing attitude had changed from Chesterton’s day because folks recognized they were reaping what they had sown by pushing God from the public square.  But the lesson has been forgotten and the old attitudes have returned, the pendulum is in the far left’s arena once again and they are trying to keep it there in spite of the consequences of their policies which we are already experiencing.  One may say: Ozzie and Harriett have moved out and Ozzie Osborn has moved in.  Most of us are longing for the return of Ozzie and Harriett even as some on the left are trying to erase the proof that those days ever existed.  “Houston, we have a problem;” of course, this metaphorical “Houston” is the command center of Heaven and we have been given permission fro God Himself to request wisdom at any time.  Actually, not only do we have permission but God is waiting for and encouraging us to look to Him because He alone has the knowledge, ability, and power to set at naught the Adversaries’ schemes.

  He who refuses to learn from history is forced to repeat its mistakes – George Santayana

All new news is old news happening to new people – Malcom Muggeridge

You are free in our time to say that God does not exist; you are free to say that He exists and is evil; you are free to say (like poor old Renan) that He would like to exist if He could.  You may talk of God as a metaphor or a mystification; you may water Him down with gallons of long words … and it is not merely that nobody punishes, but nobody protests.  But if you speak of God as a fact … as a reason for changing one’s conduct, then the modern world will stop you somehow if it can.  …it is now thought to be irreverent to be a believer. – G. K. Chesterton

The heights of Christian attainment are available to every person.  It’s a shame to live a life short of what God intended your life to be.  Despite appearances, everyone lives forever; the and the bad, the difference is the quality which is directly linked to the presence or absence of God.  Despite whatever protestations may be offered to the contrary; you do not believe what you do not live.

It is quite possible that improper activity and beliefs regarding the arena of politics may potentially have a profound effect on your forever as well as your now.  If a man’s religion and his politics don’t mix there is something wrong with his spiritual condition and his politics, to say the least.  Therefore, if a person chooses to support or refuses to condemn something God condemns then that one may count on enduring the consequences of that choice.  If that person is fortunate the consequences will be experienced in this life, thereby affording an opportunity to repent and begin making reparations.

There are “monsters” in our near future if we do not wake up soon and start taking action to stop evil in its tracks.

Sibylline Oracles

There is the story of the Cumaean Sibyl who came to King Tarquin offering for sale nine books which she declared would be of great value to him in the government of Rome in that they held the destiny of the world.  She requested 300 pieces of gold which seemed an exorbitant price, and he would not buy them.  He did not recognize that she was a sibyl.  She left and in time she returned and offered him six books for the same price; 300 pieces of gold and again he refused.  She had also informed him at that time that she had burned three of the original nine.  After a time she returned, informed him that she had burned three more of them and 300 pieces of gold were required for the remaining three.  King Tarquin, the last of the Roman Kings was of a mind to forcefully expel her from his presence but his most trusted advisors prevailed upon him to purchase them lest she burn the remainder and in the off-chance that they were legit and contained that which she claimed.

Now, for us Christians, there is a moral to this story: The longer we refuse God’s overtures, the less these overtures contain, while the demand on us is still the same for the remainder.  Perhaps you are thinking, “C’mon, Pastor Ward, why are you bothering me with this old fable?”

Well, my reasoning goes a bit like this; have you ever stopped to wonder why the Romans treated the Jews a bit differently than most conquered people groups?  Well, it is a matter of record that after the King’s counselors studied the books and reported back to King Tarquin he offered the Cumaean Sibyl a very large sum of money if she would reproduce the other books, but she refused.  Those three books were venerated and studied carefully and kept in the Temple of Jove until its destruction by fire in 83 bc.  Those books had in them, among other things, a prophecy regarding the birth of Jesus The Christ.  Most of us Christians fail to realize that the Romans were expecting the arrival of The Messiah at about the time He did arrive.  Yes, I am trying to tell you the whole world was actually anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Holy one of God and yet the majority missed Him because He came God’s way, with God’s agenda, not ours.

It is not always easy to distinguish the truly pious from those who are destitute at the very core of the matter.  Then there is the illustration Jesus used regarding five who were wise and five who were foolish.  They all had lamps.  Outward form is one thing, inward life is quite another.

Every hour of the day and night there are souls going into eternity improperly prepared.  One lies at death’s door, he cannot get his light burning.  He comes up to the gate of heaven; he knocks, he cries:  “Let me in!”  He is not admitted.   He screams: “I want to see the bridegroom.”  The voices within say, “You cannot see the bridegroom, he is busy with His guests now.”  Pleads the man, “I must come in; my children are in there, my beloved mother is there.  I must come in.”  A voice from within says, “You refused the grace that would have brought you in where they are and now it is too late.”  The voice from within says to one outside, “You are twenty years too late;” to another, “You are a month too late;” to another, “You are a minute too late.”  As the outer darkness engulfs them, the mob outside takes up the anguished lament, “Too late, too late.”

pc vs morals

    The wise went wholly prepared.  The unwise probably didn’t want to seem to be too fanatical.  He who has the most religion has none to spare.  God calls everyone of us to be fully prepared by being completely consecrated Christians in this life.

The person who truly understands that he is an eternal being living a temporary human existence is the one who most understands his need to be fully prepared for when the transition from this world to the next is to take place.

Pray for America

America is in trouble.  It is time for believers in the Christ to stand up and take action to change the course of our nation.  The place to begin is prayer.  “The Lord was moved by the prayers for the land.” – 2nd Samuel 24:25

The first act of the U.S. Congress was George Washington, John Adams, John Jay, and others of the Founding Fathers praying in Jesus’ name and reading the Holy Bible.  Will you, are you willing, to help remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from our land and welcome God back into all our government?

Exodus 18:21 sets forth an example for us.  America’s founders warned us to choose only [persons] of high moral fiber for positions of public office.  Do not neglect 1st Timothy 2:1-4

“The spectacle of a nation praying is more awe-inspiring than the explosion of an atomic bomb.  The force of prayer is greater than any possible combination of man-controlled powers, because prayer is man’s greatest means of [harnessing] the infinite resources of God.” – J. Edgar Hoover

It is long past time to recover the great and powerful preaching of our founding era – a time when pastors did not fear to preach politics, resist tyranny, and founded their governments on the Holy bible.

The left doesn’t just dislike western values; they hate them.  To some that may sound a bit overboard but it is an observable fact.  Therefore, if you are a Christian you have no business being unequally yoked with the left.
