When your society seems to have gone mad with wicked depraved ideas, you are being challenged to make choices. Will you allow yourself to be herded like sheep to the slaughter? Will you go with the flow and take your family by the seemingly easy path into the net of destruction? Or will you gather the courage to seek out the truth that will set you free no matter what the cost?
I have no doubt that all of us are being motivated to pray for God’s help in our perplexing times of need. But are we praying in fear or in faith?
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
With spiritual eyes, it is clear that the outrageous corruption of politicians is demonically inspired. So, how are the righteous to respond?
The widespread deception of the news media is demonically inspired. The open dishonesty that has prevailed in this country’s indoctrination institutions that we call public education is demonically inspired. All this, now publicly obvious distortion of reality is crystal-clear evidence of a long-term war between Truth and lies. It can be a discouraging discovery of the spiraling conflict of good and evil – destroying liberty and increasing smothering captivity. It’s the very confrontation of devilish attacks against the kingdom of God, the King of all kings.
When surrounded by a prevalent spirit of fear and completely insane behaviors, can there be any doubt that now is the time for humble hearts to rise in their Lord’s strength, put on the whole armor of God, and take the courage of Joshua to face the enemies of God’s kingdom without hesitation?
Are truth tellers guilty of ignoring evidence that is suppressed by main stream monopolists of disinformation? Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, is the great discourse about the many extraordinary facets of the Jewel of God’s Word. The psalmist declares in verse 162:
“I rejoice at Thy Word, as one who finds great spoil” (like a hidden treasure of booty in the plunder hidden by a defeated enemy).
And verse 165 calms us with: “Those who love Thy law have great peace, and nothing causes them to stumble (or to be offended).” When I get upset about conditions as they are, the Lord often reminds me of that.
Have you ever dealt with the frustrated feeling that your civic duty of voting is a fruitless exercise in futility?
Most hard-working Americans are ordinarily so busy with their private lives that they give only little attention to the process of civic government, except for the complaining that all of us tend to do when we see policies enacted that we disagree with or that cost us something. Do you recall anyone asking for your vote to give more of your hard-earned money to bureaucracies to waste on programs that you think are foolish? Worse yet, we’re all aware of terrible civic outcomes. The election of Barack Obama (even twice); the court’s decision to re-make God’s ordinance of marriage; government’s interference and persecution of Christians for refusing to bake a cake; legalizing abortion, or whatever—it’s easy to get overwhelmed with a feeling of hopelessness.
Knowledge and Understanding amidst Face mask paranoia
There are lots of things I’ve learned, as I grew into adulthood and fatherhood. One that sticks out to me seems to be missed by a lot of people who have not learned yet how to avoid being dominated by fear. The present crisis in our world really seems to accent this fact. Simply stated it’s this: “what we don’t understand, we tend to fear.” It’s pretty common, isn’t it? If you don’t understand how to use a dangerous tool – like a knife or a gun – it’s perfectly natural to keep your distance from that tool because of an indescribable fear. Once you learn how to use the potentially dangerous tool correctly, you still maintain a healthy respect for the tool, but you don’t have a psychotic fear of it anymore.
This is one of the very best gentle evangelistic invitations to think about God that I’ve ever seen… a short 3-minute video with a beautifully written narration that sensitively invites listeners to personally connect with God through the Bible verse where Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life…” I think you’ll really like this and find it useful in sharing with others.
Will God’s People Fear God to the point of doing the work to defend their families while they can?
What does it mean to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart?”
“and lean NOT on thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Isn’t it perplexing how the more our ‘doubting Thomas’ society leans toward their own flawed understanding, the more they are swayed by the deception of ‘political correctness’ and refusing to trust in the sovereignty of God? And let’s be clear we’re talking about the Creator God, “Who upholds all things by the word of His power (Heb 1:3)” and “Who works all things after the counsel of his own will (Eph 1:11).” (more…)
Do you know what October 31st is besides Halloween? Hint: it’s one of the most important days in the history of the Christian church and it affects everything about your life today. Everything!
It was on the 31st of October 1517 that a Catholic monk named Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 Theses to the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany. By God’s grace, Luther’s courageous act of challenging corruption and unbiblical heresies launched the Great Reformation. But why is this legacy worth recalling and how does it affect us today?
