I’ve been listening in on a lot of talk shows lately, mostly to see what’s being done and said as a way of learning how to make my own show better. I’ve learned a couple of things of great importance that disturb me.
- People have no desire to hear what they need to here, and
- People flock to the voice that tells them what they want to hear.
You may feel as though I may be wrong, but I am not. And this is one of the greatest problems this country has today. At least to my way of looking at things. Take religion, for an example. There are many folks who claim to be Christians, Jews, Muslims, and adherents to other faiths. But are these people true believers? Are they true adherents? Or do they claim alliance to their favored faith because it is convenient, or of some benefit to them? I’m not going to make an argument as to whether any of these religions that exist today are valid or not, because if you really think about it, there is no one valid religion. The only valid belief system is faith. And the only faith that is true is the faith that Jesus Christ is our Saviour. All other beliefs are false.
But allow me to present a couple of arguments here. I consider that many who claim to be true believers are not. Take the Jewish religion, for instance. My understanding is that pork is not allowed to be eaten by the Jews. How many times have you seen a Jewish person wolfing down sweet and sour pork ribs at a buffet? I’ve seen plenty of them in my time. Islamic law supposedly prohibits Muslim’s from imbibing in intoxicating beverages. I’ve seen notes in local papers of Muslims having been arrested for DUI. And the Christian faith is no different.
Remember Jim and Tammy Baker? Jimmy Swaggart? There’s a long list of offenders, and they may have asked for forgiveness and repented, but the example is there. So where does that leave us in the world of Christianity today? Hard telling, by some accounts. But I bring to mind the feeling by some claiming to be believers that they believe that God has abandoned America. They listen to the ideological rhetoric of hate that prods listeners to despise those who chose to live a life contrary to the standard Biblical theology. And it is true that these people are in fact sinners, and God finds their actions abhorrent, but who is the greater one at fault, the adulterer or homosexual, or the one who claims to be a Christian, but refuses to allow Gods will to be completed?
In point, I call attention to those who seem to live by the credo “If you love God and your guns…” If one is a true believer, they will love God, and all else matters little. God’s will becomes more important than the desire to fondle your guns if you are a true believer and you love God. And we have to stop and ponder if it is in God’s will that America be destroyed. Has God abandoned America? Not at all. God never abandons anyone. He is always there for us. But all too frequently, we abandon God. We wander away from the flock and hide from the shepherd, but the shepherd is still their looking out for us.
I believe that if we were to start praying that God’s will be done in this country, and start turning to him enmasse, instead of flocking around those that tell us what we want to hear instead of what we need to hear, we would see a change come over this country. We need to join together to combat the secular world, and defeat all of those things that God finds abhorrent. We need to join together to fight the rise of the spirit of the Antichrist in this country.
Because we have been lax in our faith, and ignored correct teaching, we have allowed the election of Barak Obama. Many people have climbed aboard the bandwagon that wants to see his birth certificate. Perhaps he is indeed not eligible to be the lawfully elected president of this country. But why haven’t these people attacked his position on issues such as gay marriage, welfare reform, the economy and more? We need to remember that he was placed in the position he holds because God allowed this to happen. But why?
Perhaps we are in fact entering the end times, and his election will pervert this nation enough that it will easily bend to the will of the beast, as we read in Rev. 17:17; For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.(KJV) And yet many of these supposed believers claim the United States will never bow to the coming political hierarchy. Foolish people. God’s will will always be fulfilled, in spite of our interference. And it will be filled according to his time, not ours. We need to stop and reassess our positions, and whether we are in fact true believers of Jesus Christ.
There are those that claim to be believers, but unless you have repented of your sins, and accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you cannot be born again, a true believer. The first thing we should pray for enmasse is that God’s will be done regarding this country, and the second is that that will, and the power of God be revealed to Barak Obama, and that he be shown the way to salvation. The Holy Scriptures, the Word of God, says that we should pray for our rulers. Do you?
