Charting a Path of Unity Among Divisions and Hostility (Video)

Can we ever come together again? The divisions are ripping the world, the Nation, and God’s children apart. Of course, what will concern us most in this article is charting a path for God’s children to come together as one people, to overcome their divisions and hostility. If we overcome, it will be our strength in the coming days. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Charting a Path of Unity Among Divisions and Hostility

Can we ever come together again? The divisions are ripping the world, the Nation, and God’s children apart. Of course, what will concern us most in this article is charting a path for God’s children to come together as one people, to overcome their divisions and hostility. If we overcome, it will be our strength in the coming days. So, it’s essential that we overcome these growing divisions escalated by the Social Media echo chambers, taking their lead from the political left or right. It will be helpful to listen again to the Words of Jesus Christ, who said, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22:21). It was the opposing parties of the Pharisees and the Herodians that tried to trip up Christ by denying any responsibility to the government of His day. Jesus Christ never denied responsibility to the government, but only what they are due and nothing more. His primary objective in the lesson, then and now, is to teach all of His followers to render everything to God that is God’s, which is everything. This is such beautiful truth for our day, a day when the world is filled with half-truths designed to lead people astray. Jesus saw the hypocrisy of the two opposing parties then and I am convinced that He also sees it now with the political parties of our day.

My concern in this article is to gather up all of God’s children that are being led astray by both political parties of our day and bring them back to the truth; to bring them back to God’s magnificent way. As already stated, God’s way is to render unto God all the things due to God and only render unto the government the things that are due them. Until we do, we will continue on the path of unprecedented divisions allowing our political party of choice to lead us further and further away from God and His marvelous way. This is the one area that has tripped up most Christians in our day. We will demonstrate that Jesus Christ never directed His followers to utilize the government or their chosen political party to establish His Kingdom here on earth. This will be a hard pill for most Christians to swallow in our day because this “Kingdom now theology” has been so ingrained into the minds of most believers for nearly two thousand years. This dangerous thinking began with the establishment of the Catholic Church and has continued to this day with only a very few bright and glorious exceptions along the way.

So, what does the government expect? Simply put, pay your taxes and obey their laws. The only noticeable exception for the believer is to only obey the laws that are not in direct conflict with God’s higher Law. On the other hand, to render unto God the things due Him puts us on a much higher mountain. It’s time for Christians to come out from the valley of  division with constant bickering and infighting. It’s time to climb the mountain of unity and brotherhood allowing Christ to teach us once again how to bring forth His Kingdom that will reside in the hearts and minds of every believer. As Christ stood before Pilate, the government’s representative of His day, “Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”” (John 18:36, ESV). So, if Christ’s Kingdom is not of this world and only resides in the hearts and minds of transformed believers then how should we confront a world of divisions and hostility?

We confront a world of divisions and hostility by not aligning ourselves with a particular political party. Remember, we only render to the government what’s due them, taxes and obedience to their lesser laws that don’t disagree with God’s Law. As we render to God the things due Him, we will learn together how to gloriously confront the world. Our first lesson is we don’t use the weapons of this world. The world may tell us it’s ok to protest in the streets by carrying signs and yelling our slogans knowing full well that it could easily turn into physical confrontations with counter-protesters. What does God say? The world may tell us it’s perfectly ok to have a peaceful protest in front of the Capital knowing full well that it could easily allow immoral groups to join in going much further than we intended. What does God say? The world may tell us that we have every right to choose other like-minded friends on Social Media knowing full well that it can turn into an echo chamber of aggressive rhetoric against one party or another. What does God say? God’s way is completely different from the ways of the world. Stop following the ways of the world! Listen to hear God’s beautiful truth on how to confront a divided and hostile world.

God’s truth can only be properly understood by His transformed believers in Christ. That must be the starting point. Without transformation in-Christ, then it will be no different than joining any other party in the world. The transformation will open our eyes to a beautiful truth that we can overcome evil with good and not by using the weapons of this world. Attempting to do this without transformation in Christ will end in dismal failure. We can all begin today by putting off the old life through repentance and putting on the new life in Christ by obeying all of His beautiful commandments. This too will be impossible without faith believing that Christ died on the Cross for our sins and rose on the third day to give us a new life in Christ. Furthermore, we must step out in this faith following Christ’s lead through the promptings of the indwelling Spirit allowing Him to bring forth Spiritual growth. The good news is we are not meant to do this alone. We must join with other believers who want the same thing, to see God’s Kingdom manifested in their life and the lives of every believer.

We will soon discover that our rules of engagement are completely different from the world. We overcome evil with good, not through hostile rhetoric. We immediately see the great power of forgiveness, of turning the other cheek and going the extra mile. I am still amazed every time I see this happen. We immediately see the great power in love breaking down barriers and removing the weapons from their hands. We immediately see the great power in the Cross to bring conviction to a dying world leading them to repentance and the brotherhood of love. We immediately see the great power in the transformation that’s completely changing others from the inside out. How amazing it is to see great sinners weep in repentance and witness their lives completely change right in front of our eyes. We immediately see the great power of God’s Kingdom coming and His will being followed on earth as it is in heaven. This power is greater than all the armies that have ever fought, all the navies that ever have sailed, all the books that have ever been written, and all the sermons that have ever been preached. Dear children, let’s stop trusting in our favorite political party to change the world and allow God to do it through us, one person at a time. How glorious are God’s ways. Onward Christian soldiers.

A Nation Rushes into Darkness

This has been a dark day. Some brave souls tried to throw off the yoke of tyranny and stand up to the corruption that has occupied this country for a very long time. They attempted to follow the mandate given to them by the original signers of the Constitution. They marched in the streets, waved their flags, and mounted the steps of the capital. Their voices rang out from sea to sea crying for freedom. However, with the malicious broadcasting from a corrupt media and the senseless killing of a beautiful female patriot it all ended quickly and in vain. No longer was the country just slipping into darkness, it was now going full steam ahead preparing to reverse all the measures put into place by the previous administration. Controlling both houses of Congress and the presidency will hasten their path to all the evil we had feared most. God help us!

The grossest of sexual immorality and abominations will be openly displayed in the streets of our great cities for even our children to see. Legalized drugs will turn most into zombies or lifeless drones ready to worship every new leader promising a bigger stimulus check. Socialized medicine and abortion on demand will be glorified by those in power that limits expanded healthcare to only the elite and legalization to destroy new life from the dregs of society. Churches will be filled with the syncretism of different faiths and the open embrace of unconverted perverts that flag in their zeal. As capitalism gives way to socialism, the drive to succeed will be exchanged for a bitter life of normalcy where the bright colors of change will turn into the same ole stale color of drabness seen in the increasing number of homeless occupying our inner cities.

So, what are we to do? As believers in Christ, we can no longer put our hope in the political establishment. We must put our hope in the power of the Gospel that can still change people from the inside out; that still has the power of transformation. Although our dark dreary colors of socialism will remain the same, the bright light of God’s glory will shine forth majestically from our faces for all to see. Our true churches will be the gathering of the Saints holding tightly to the unchanging Gospel. We will practice our belief in the sufficiency of Scripture. We will stand firm in our belief in the exclusiveness of Christianity. We will cherish all life and trust God to supply all of our needs. We will reject the slavery to drugs, learning rather to cultivate the Spiritual fruit of patience and long-suffering that leads to a robust freedom in Christ. As God’s faithful remnant we will walk in love for one another, with great joy in our hearts, and a peace that truly defies understanding. We will not lose our hope for our true citizenship is in heaven.

We will no longer put our hope in the political establishment. We will put our hope in Christ who still reigns in the hearts of His children. We will continue to make every effort to share the eternal Gospel, not to just a select group on social media, but to all in whom we come into contact. Our Gospel will not consist of political rhetoric but will only be filled with the truth that God is ready to forgive anyone who turns from their sins and follows Christ in truth and righteousness. Our Gospel will demonstrate how people called by God can live beautiful, transformed lives in every political government in the world. We will not only survive but we will stand against the coming beast with this very powerful Gospel proclaiming it from the rooftops if necessary. As the nation rushes into darkness, we will stand firm in the light of God’s glory.

Please Join Me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we are seeing all the earmarks of the coming persecution against your beloved children. Our eyes are being opened to see how a few bad people and few other zealous souls inspired by conspiracy theories on the fringes of the faith are being lumped together with all of your beloved children. Many millions of your true children who were marching against the tyranny of a corrupt government in a peaceful protest are now being linked together with what the news media is calling an insurrection. The corrupt news media went quickly from calling it a peaceful protest, to calling us all a mob, to now calling us all insurrectionist because of a few bad actors. We pray that this will not open a door to the coming persecution of all of your beloved children. We pray that respected voices in the Christian community will lift up their voices against a corrupt media who are fanning the flames of discontent and paving the way toward open persecution against your beloved children. Let us only suffer persecution for living a godly life. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (II Timothy 3:12).

Hoofbeats of the Apocalypse are Growing Louder (Video)

Listen and you can hear the approaching hoofbeats of the Apocalypse. After watching this important video on my secure website, please share with others.

Hoofbeats of the Apocalypse are Growing Louder

We would need to be spiritually dead not to hear the hoofbeats of the apocalypse. It’s growing louder every minute of every day in the hearts and minds of all God’s precious children. It’s not fear mongering. It’s not a product of vain imaginations. It’s not just an opinion. It’s not even necessarily prophetic. It is reality. It’s happening now. Every believer should already sense the tremendous moral decline in our society, that’s almost beyond belief. It’s almost like waking up to a bad dream. We have seen the wrath of God being poured out on all ungodliness in this country and around the world for some time now. Although most will not see or recognize this wrath, it should not be so, for God’s elect children. We have been given eyes to see. The Bible clearly indicates what God’s wrath is, and how to recognize it. Three times in the Bible, specifically in the letter to the Romans, it says, God gave them up by allowing them to sink deeper into their sins and its inevitable consequences (See Romans 1:18-32). Yes, my dear friends, sin does have its consequences. Listen and you can hear the approaching hoofbeats of the Apocalypse. Continue reading Hoofbeats of the Apocalypse are Growing Louder
