Pastor’s Blog 9.23.20
I stand amazed as I am sure you do as I look at the present day culture of America and the world. I am daily hearing the words of the Prophet Isaiah:
20 Woe to those who call evil good , and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man!
24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness, And their blossom will ascend like dust; Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. NKJV
For a lifetime I have watched the church fall deeper and deeper into a spiritual slumber that many will not awaken from. Thousands of churches remain dark as fear driven leaders hold their flocks captive to the narrative of the crazed politicians and media!
The so called “grace message leaders have now manifested what they really are; fearful and faithless. They went from fear of man and fear of not being politically correct to fear of sickness and death!
Half the people who call themselves Christian won’t even vote or vote for the Democratic party whose entire platform is anti-Christ. I keep seeing a picture of the late Justice Ginsburg standing before the judgment seat of Christ, with millions of spirits of aborted children bearing witness against her.
I would imagine a woman’s right to choose has a different outcome in the high court of Heaven! Who would have imagined it would take a “Donald Trump” to have ten times the boldness against evil than the average American Pastor?
Who would have imagined that it would take Donald Trump to appoint three conservative Supreme Court Justices and fill 300 Federal judgeships in
the Federal Government with conservatives. Jesus said it best “a tree is known by its fruit”, not its narrative or talking points!
I remember nearly four years ago now when Trump first took office, my Pastor called me and told me he had just gotten off the phone with one of the Pastors who had been summoned to the oval office to meet and pray for the President. He told me that the POTUS said this to them. “Gentlemen make no mistake about this, this is not a fight between political parties, this is a fight between good and evil!”
According to a recent poll on Fox News last night 54% of Americans still believe abortion on demand should be outlawed except in extreme circumstances. So where are they on election day? I know where I will be and I hope you will be, at the polls “making America accountable before God again!”
32 But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings: 33 partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated;
34 for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.
35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
37 “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”
39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. NKJV
We vote in heaven with our prayers, and then vote on earth with our authority at the polls. We must elect men and women who will uphold biblical standards, and we must see this through in prayer.
PS – From now until the election and maybe after, Gary Nangle is leading people in prayer for our nation every Sunday AM from 8:50 to 9:30 in the Youth Room. Let’s join our faith and release our faith as we pray for our nation to turn back to God!
