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.

The Virus, Vaccine, and God’s Truth (Video)

What does God say? We have not done extensive research on the subject as scientists, doctors, and conspiracy theorists have done over this past year. On the other hand, we have turned to Almighty God, seeking His answers on this hotly debated subject. We come before God with a clean slate with no preconceptions and with no predetermined agenda. Our only interest is to receive the truth for God’s precious children and for the world at large if they are interested. After watching this very important video, please share it with others.

The Virus, Vaccine, and God’s Truth

What does God say? We have not done extensive research on the subject as scientists, doctors, and conspiracy theorists have done over this past year. On the other hand, we have turned to Almighty God, seeking His answers on this hotly debated subject. We come before God with a clean slate with no preconceptions and with no predetermined agenda. Our only interest is to receive the truth for God’s precious children and for the world at large if they are interested. There has been a lot of debate about where the virus came from. Did it come from a live food market or a Laboratory? Was it simply an accident or was it a biological weapon? Perhaps a bigger question and more importantly, at least for believers, is why did God allow it to happen in the first place? To answer that question, of course, we need to listen, really listen, to God alone (See Jeremiah 33:3). Although we can learn from God’s previous dealings with fallen humanity since the beginning of time, it’s essential to let God speak specifically to this one question that we are asking Him now concerning the virus and later in this article concerning the vaccine.

So, what does God say? His words come loud and clear. They come from the indwelling Spirit as we bend our spiritual ears to listen and also from God’s anointed Word, which are both in agreement. God has not changed in how He deals with fallen humanity. God is not an angry God sending forth bolts of lightning from heaven to sear the pants of His rebellious children. No, He is a loving God who sent His Only Begotten Son to show us the way. Unfortunately, most of fallen humanity has not listened to His Son, then or now. Nor have they listened to all the true prophets coming along and saying the same thing. Fallen humanity is reaping what they have sown (See Galatians 6:7). They are sinking deeper and deeper into the consequences of their sins, which is exactly how God’s wrath works (See Romans 1:18-32). So, hopefully, as you are beginning to see, it makes little difference as to where exactly the virus came from. The point is, fallen humanity was doing something or not doing something that they should have been doing that caused the virus to wreak death and destruction upon the world. It has always worked that way from the beginning.

Instead of following God in His righteousness, fallen humanity has followed Satan in his rebellion against God by walking in all manner of wickedness (See Isaiah 14:12-15). The virus along with the many other diseases are taking their toll upon humanity. Everything we do has an individual and corporate consequence, from polluting the air we breathe to polluting the water we drink and from administering chemicals and toxins into our bodies. We are destroying the earth (See Revelation 11:18). Remember, that when our planet was young with no toxins and chemicals to be digested into the body, some of the ancients lived close to a thousand years (See Genesis 5:27). Unfortunately, even if we decide to live a holy separated life, we will still rest under the same consequences of a dying world that’s polluted with chemicals, toxins, and natural disasters caused by planetary neglect. We now feel fortunate to live beyond seventy-five years in our dying ecosystem. So, let’s be clear, God did not cause the COVID-19 virus, but He did not stop it either, allowing humanity to reap the consequences of their many sins.

Ok, now we turn our attention to the hotly debated vaccine. What is it, really, and should I take it? Let me say upfront, I don’t believe the world is attempting mass suicide because even those in power, making decisions about the vaccine, have children, grandchildren, and love life just as much as you do. This is not some massive plot to turn everyone into zombies so that they can be easily controlled. Nor is this their grand opportunity to put a chip in every person making them worship the coming beast. Fallen humanity has faced this disaster the same way they have faced every disaster since the dawn of time. They had called forth their wise men, their sages, and even their gods to help them solve their problems. Even now, in our modern age, they will still seek the counsel of their learned professors, scientists, and doctors to solve their current dilemma. Have you noticed who’s missing? No one is calling upon the One true God to seek His counsel (See Jeremiah 33:3). They are doing their research, but they are not asking God.

So, what does God say? Thus, saith the LORD of host, “I know that some of you are trying to partially do the right thing. You are trying to clean up your environment by reducing some of the toxins and chemicals that are killing your planet and my children. I know that you are way over your head with this virus because everyone knows that you have changed your methodology in creating this vaccine. It’s not a secret. I must tell you that it will have limited success because every soul’s biology [and DNA] are not exactly the same because of all the toxins from your environment, the chemicals from other drugs they have used, along with many other factors. I don’t fault you for trying to find a cure, but I do fault you for not seeing the major problem that has caused the virus in the first place.” From listening to the indwelling Spirit and my study of Scripture we know that each person must decide for themselves if they want to take the vaccine because as stated each person’s chemistry is different. It should be a choice. However, I believe it’s essential that we do one more thing if we ever hope to survive these plagues descending upon fallen humanity.

We must repent or the plagues will only get worse. I believe we are partially trying to do the right thing by cleaning up the environment but there’s one thing we lack causing things to go from bad to worse. Fallen humanity is still promoting their many prescription drugs for God’s children that have harmful side effects because their bodies were not created for all the toxins and chemicals. Fallen humanity must repent of all their gross immorality even if you attempt to justify it by legalizing it. Just because you have legalized abortion, homosexuality, the transgender, theft, corruption, along with many other sins does not justify them. If you think this virus is bad, what’s coming soon will horrify you. We must all repent before our most Holy God seeking His forgiveness, while we still have time. Please stop debating this topic, putting forth additional conspiracy theories, and get busy calling everyone to repentance. That’s the only true thing that will help. Repent now and seek God’s direction on taking the vaccine, it’s not for everyone, and may not be for you. Let it be your choice alone and then stand firm trusting in God’s mercy.

Please join me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray for all of your children to stop their endless research for the truth by following the methods of the world. We pray that they will stop their endless research on Google, news media, and social media as if they were their gods. On the other hand, we pray that they will call unto you, the One true God, who has all the answers they seek and so much more. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the indwelling Spirit that always speaks with a soft voice of clarity, that’s so unlike the many confusing voices in the world. As you speak, for those who have studied your holy Scriptures, they will often receive the memory of a verse of Scripture that’s in total agreement with what you are saying in the Spirit. When you speak you always open up the Scriptures to a deeper, often hidden, meaning that we did not see before but so majestically aligns with the rest of Scripture. Thank you, Lord, for not changing but always being the Constant in the universe allowing your beloved children to see the deeper truth if we just ask you and stop our ridiculous research. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).
