You Cannot Claim to be Christian AND Support Abortion.

This title is similar to one I read somewhere on the Web, it was good, but there is more to it. Christians must be consistence in every part of our life’s.

Christians & Abortion

Child Praying

Abortion is murder, the Bible is clear on the subject, as I heard and wrote recently the difference between the born and the unborn is SLED.

Size – We cannot justify murder do to size, to we kill short people tall people when do they change the rules for children those who have been born.

Level of Development – This too does not justify murder, do we start to pick on those with birth defects after their born, would we kill them?

Environment – If this was justification should we murder those because of were they live, the poor or tribes in the middle nowhere, your environment does not give anyone the right to kill you

Dependency –   If we used this as justification for murder, the poor, old weak and sick could qualify.

Abortion is Murder, and if you vote for and support a a politician you support abortion and murder.

Christians and Sexuality

 

As Christians we cannot “be tolerant” of homosexuality, transgender or any other self proclaimed sexuality. We are not supposed to hate those who sin, if we are honest we are sinners and far from perfect, it is only the Grace of God that we are saved through faith that we can we forgiven, but we are not without sin.

Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

These and other verses are taken from the https://www.openbible.info

Again we cannot support candidates , parties or politicians that support these things and live a close honest relationship with God

  Christ Like, not Worldly morals

We can be fooled if we try to be moral especially when those morals are based on mans terms, we are told to be Christ like

2 Corinthians 4:4 In their case the God of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

We cannot live one way at work, one way at home and another at Church, as Christians everywhere and everything should be based on Gods Word.

Closing

Being a Christian is not easy, the world hates us, no matter how many times we say we don’t hate the sinner and just the sin the world will not hear that, they will call us bigots, intolerant, remember they hated Christ before they hated us.

John 15:18 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.

We are not perfect, we make mistakes, the difference is we admit them and ask for forgiveness, if we remember that and communicate that, they will still hates us, but our goal should be to be truthful, consistent in every aspect of our lifes.

How does one find Salvation

The question of salvation, becoming saved is for non-believers the only prayer God will hear, so how do we become saved.
My recognizing our sinful nature, accepting Christ as our Savior, as the one who died for our sins on the cross instead of us, believing that he defeated death on the third day and rose again ( he is a living God) and asking him to come into our heart, our soul and our life, yielding to His will and Word

Feel free reach out to us on this page there are 3 admins here that will talk with you, pray with you and help you get started going down Gods path, or see the link at the bottom of the paged.

In His Care

‘Til I’m resting with my Saviour
in yon heaven’s peaceful place,
I’ll strive to follow Jesus and
I’ll bravely run the race,

And when in the deepest valley
And no way out I find;
The mountain top is out of reach
And much too steep to climb.

No matter what tomorrow brings
Whether gladness, toil or tears,
I’ll trust my great Redeemer for
I’m always in His care.

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day

Washington, D.C.
March 30, 1863
Senator James Harlan of Iowa, whose daughter later married President Lincoln’s son Robert, introduced this Resolution in the Senate on March 2, 1863. The Resolution asked President Lincoln to proclaim a national day of prayer and fasting. The Resolution was adopted on March 3, and signed by Lincoln on March 30, one month before the fast day was observed.

Pray for America

A Christian Nation

Like it or not, our Nation was founded on Christian Judea values. President Lincoln (a Republican for all you who don’t know any better)  further proved this not only for his efforts to abolish slavery but for his faith in God.

Not only was it a republican but a man of faith who ended slavery, while the democrats founded the KKK, and all the laws that suppressed the rights of African Americans, and they still do it today.

Abortion, murder of babies affects a higher percentage of minorities, just as poverty ( remember the fake war on poverty, you can thank the democrats for that) murder and high unemployment rates. This is a direct result of racism, and the plantation owners are still democrats.  They will continue to give hand outs, to buy the votes of the poor and uninformed minorities and todays slave have no choice (in their mind) but to vote for their masters.

Break the cycle,  no race is better or worse than the other in the eyes of our God, we are all created in his image. Turn back to God, white, black, brown poor or rich it is time again for this nation to humble ourselves before God, acknowledge our sins and turn back to him, only then can we as a country become whole.

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln
William H. Seward, Secretary of State.

Christianity Same Bible Different Times Still NO Changes

Bible
Bible

Liberals, Christians of convenience and hypocrites all enjoy quoted the Bible when it suits their needs. They will take text out of context or worse yet ignore the fact that the Bible is the complete word of God and cannot be re arranged to suit their current wants and needs.

Refugees and the Christian “Responsibility”

Refugees or Invasion
Refugees or Invasion

People will quote Bible verses that point to the fact that the Bible , Gods word says that refugees fall into a class of people that Christians MUST help, love and protect. What verses don’t matter and many verses in fact support that statement.

But wait there is More

That same Bible also tells us that as Christians we must use discernment in everything we do.  Here are some verses to consider click the verse to follow the link.

So to blindly open the door of your home or your Country to anyone  use discernment. Just as it is important to love your enemies, to help the poor, to open your heart and home we must use discernment.

Things to Grasp

Common Sense
Common Sense

 

Refugees are not new wars, oppression, genocide these are a few reasons why people flee their homes, their lives and their country. Typically these are the old, young, sick and vulnerable and especially so when it is a civil war such as we see in Syria, or in Countries that are being invaded by ISIS the radical Islam sewer rats. In our current world crisis this is NOT the norm, instead we see the young strong men of fighting age, running away from their country when if they really wanted to make a change the would stand and fight.

History Matters

When we had a civil war our young men did not run to another country they picked a side and stood up for it. It is the natural thing to do. When Barrack Obama got elected those who disagreed with him did not run, they stood up and got involved. Those of you who disagree with President Trump are you running? or are you fighting for your beliefs.

When our founders decided to rebel and start a new country they did not flee to France and leave the old, young and sick to fight for their freedom they stayed and fought.

Sayings that Don’t Matter

 

One of my favorite liberal sayings which they typically say when trying to deny our right to bear arms with yet another law is “If it saves one life it is worth it”

They lie, these same people kill babies under the guise of women’s health, or their choice but they artfully get around that my changing when life starts. Another example is illegal aliens the numbers vary and I don’t know the exact amount but it is a fact that illegal aliens often released back into society after committing a crime have killed Americans but if we try to enforce the law and deport them somehow the one life rule is yet again redefined.

If you cannot understand vetting who is coming into this country or worse yet don’t care stop trying to hijack the Bible to use when it is convenient to your desires.  Otherwise you are simply a lying liberal or a Christian of convenience.

The Good

Not everyone who wants us to bring refugees into this country because of their Christian values are doing so to be deceitful, or are just being Christians for a day. They are sincere they feel they have a conviction to from God to do so. But to not look at all of the Bible, the news all of the news in short not using discernment are ignoring or don’t know the whole Bible. Maybe the go to a “feel good church” never hearing or talking about the truth such as there are evil people, there is a hell and that we are all  sinners in constant need of Gods Grace.

The Bad

We also must recognize that some of these people are not Christian, in fact they will use parts of the Bible to make Christians feel guilty and shame them into joining their cause. They may even be that false prophet who is called pastor at that feel good church.

2 Peter 2:1

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

If you stay in Gods word, pray and use discernment you can have compassion and love and be safe, when Christ was preparing the Apostles (and us) to go into the world and spread his Word and his message of salvation.

Luke 22:36

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

In the End

You are still responsible for your actions,  you as a Christian have to do what you think is right. Remember though our Federal Governments main job is to keep US safe, and if they do all they can by vetting anyone who wants to come to this country in the process respect that, keep them accountable for sure because they no matter who they are cannot be trusted.  Use Google, Bing Yahoo whatever your search engine of choice is and see how many Christians from war torn Muslims countries were denied entry by the Obama administration into this country, did you know that, did you speak out about that? Are you able to see that even the liberals that use your Christianity hate the very thing they are using about you? They hated Christ long before they hated you, and if the don’t maybe your not doing it right.

Start your day in Gods Word

Proverbs 2:1-9

1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

Such a treasure wisdom is, and it is even laid out step by step how we can receive it, yet so many are living in poverty. As Gods children he wants us to have wisdom, and we need it more and more and the church age ends.

Ecclesiastes 10:10

If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.

As we study, grow in God’s Word and fellowship we are putting an edge on our Christian iron which we will need more and more as time goes on and Christ return grows nearer. Staying active as Christians and Patriots requires prayer and growth. Sharpen the blunt iron, make it a little easier.

Heavenly Father help us remember your Word each day, be with us as we fellowship whenever and wherever we gather. Lord help us to not only keep and edge on the Spirit but to remember to put on the entire armor of God as we face the challenges of each day.

Proverbs 1:23-33(KJV)

The consequence of not seeking Wisdom

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

 

We know that not listening to God has consequences, not being saved being the biggest of all. But it is clear that ignoring Gods Wisdom results is bad things, the one being that God will ignore us in our time of need if we ignore him.

Always seek wisdom, it comes in many forms and from many places and even many people. God always finds the tool to best deliver his words of truth, we just need to recognize it.

The news today shows us we must be prepared as Christians for what is to come. We have to be ministers of His Word without God’s wisdom we would not have a chance. We have seen but a small sample of the worlds desire to show and act upon its hate for Jesus and His followers here in America and there is no reason to think we will never be attack in the same manner as many other Christians are every day. This past election was more critical then we will ever know I believe that God will use Donald Trump to give us one more chance on the world stage to spread the word of God without fear, even here at home.

Heavenly Father please help us seek Your Wisdom in all we do. Let our lights so shine Lord that everyone around us knows there is something different about us. Lord be with us should the time come and persecutions increases that we proudly stand on you Word and Wisdom.

Amen

           Grace and Trials

 

When trials come God; gives us grace

He stills our hearts and helps us face,

the fiery trials that Satan sends;

He gives us grace the victory win.

 

And when our body aches with pain,

He gives us grace to praise His name,

and look beyond our weakened state

to fields of glory that await.

 

Praise God for trials that come our way,

for God is molding us like clay.

He gives us trials that we may see,

that more like Jesus we will be.

Matthew 5-7New King James Version (NKJV)

Blessed

As taking from https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+5-7&version=NKJV

The Beatitudes

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

As the Church age comes to an end we need to not only spread the word of God to all any way we can. The Beatitudes from the sermon on the Mount are sometimes called the 8 Proverbs of the new Testament.  They are important to the end of the church age because they are a guide of sorts, simple yet deep in meaning.

As false prophets, apostasy and persecution are increasing it is important to remember what we as Christians are given by God.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Watching the news, see more and more church’s fall to apostasy it is easy to be down, to feel defeated yet Christ says that we get the Kingdom of Heaven. If we stay true to Christ those these things may bring us down God’s promise easily lifts the Christian Spirt, we GET the kingdom of heaven!

Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.

This verse has served us over many times of sadness, and although as the Church age ends we mourn, not for what will come for God promises us great things, but for those who will not hear his word, our comfort is his promise of what will come for use.

Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.

In the end times time Bible tells us that men will be boastful, as Christians we should be meek, not full of pride. It will not be the proud and boastful who will inherit the earth but the meek. And we will when Christ comes and sits on his thrown for 1000 years.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.

We long as Christians for righteousness , we see churches being burned and Christians being persecuted. We see abortions being accepted as a norm and sexual deviation. When the Church age ends and God calls us home, we will be filled.

We should be showing mercy to those who persecuted us, showing mercy that they may be saved, we will receive mercy for those actions when that time arrives.

Each blessing , each proverb will be fulfilled I would call these the 8 promises. Times will get harder I think before Christ returns. Persecutions that were once seen every but America are coming here, we have seen them already start and I would not be surprised if we see much worse before we are called home, we are promised that  we will not endure the tribulation, but I believe that what many Christians have seen in the world will find its way to us as the Church age ends.

We will pick up at verse 13 next time

When Storms Come

When things are rough as they can get,

You feel there is no way;

You feel that God’s forsaken you,

You find it hard to pray. 

But God is there beside you as

you feel so tired and worn,

but He has promised you that he’ll

protect you in the storm

When times of difficulty comes

your faith will get you thru;

Remember God is your refuge,

He’ll never forsake you.

by Lucille B. Lein

Storms of Life

When Storms Come

Storms come into our lives in many forms, sickness, sorrow, pain, money or lack there of, many things can bring turmoil to our life, it is how we get through the storm that can help define us and bring us wisdom.

Faith, the same faith that brings us to Salvation in Christ can bring us through the storm.

Mark 11:23 ESV

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

What ever mountain life has put in your path remember that if we go to God in prayer with the same faith that is the foundation of our Salvation He will move that mountain we just have to ask.

I am also reminded though we are saved through faith in Christ we are sanctified through our works, sometimes when the storm comes how we weather it will be a testimony to those people who to not believe in Christ. Works is not trust doing good things or being charitable but how we live our every day life and the storms it can bring, those works though you may never see the results may help bring someone to Christ.

Lord help us as we go through our day, help us to remember that the storms that life sometimes brings can calmed by our faith and pray found in your word.

I pray Heavenly Father that if there is someone reading this, stuck in a storm who does not know you as their Saviour that they will know that You sent Your Son, to die on the cross for our sins and just as he rose on the third day and defeated death, so shall we if we trust and accept him.

Amen

What WOULD Jesus Do? What We must Do

What Would Jesus Do?

what-would-jesus-do

What would Jesus do? It is a great question when asked in the moment. When at a given time we can ask, how would Christ act what would He do? But life today more often then not has us reflecting saying what would have Christ done?

Not surprising the Bible tells us, not just what to do but what to say.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Recommending Reading – Here

Mark 13 is perfect read for the times in which we live, but looking just at the question “what would Jesus do” is unfair for us, we are with sin, though we strive to be Christ like as sinners we will fail.

Don’t Fall into the Sin of Worry

If right now this election has you worried as a Christian you have already failed at what Christ would do, in the verse above Jesus tells the apostles that it is not them that will speak, but the Holy Ghost. The same can be said about what we do, do not look too far ahead trying to guess the future and then  asking what would Jesus do is wrong. We pray, study the word of God and trust that when the time comes not you or I but the Holy Sprit that will do and say. Through us.

Don’t Worry Ahead, Plan Ahead

The Bible gives us plenty to plan ahead spiritually from the Olivet discourse and in Ephesians 6 :14-20

14-Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15-And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17-And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18-Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19-And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20-For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.   

Being prepared is commandment, it is what Christ would have us do, if we are prepared then there is no need to worry.

The same is true for living, we should be prepared for emergencies, all of them. From natural disasters to potential war having food, water a plan items for self defense it is important. Think about this, right now somewhere in the world Christians are dying for Christ, some are fighting for their freedom to worship Christ, just as we should plan ahead as Christians but as American patriots.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
