Start your day in His Word

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.

The Day After

500487286_640
We will not stand

The day after election day 2016 we will be in mostly the exact same place we are today, divided.  Division already at an all time high will be pushed further to the brink, moving this country in my opinion in  acts of civil disobedience beyond anything we have ever see. I would not be surprised to se us break down into complete anarchy or even civil war. The scary part? is does not matter who wins. Nether Trump or Hillary have ran on any kind of unity platform, from the name calling between the candidates to the extreme hate of supporters on both sides for their counter parts.

Hillary

Obama, perhaps the most divisive President in history at least lied when he ran and pretended while campaigning to be everyone’s candidate. The Clintons are well known for the ability to hold grudges and skirt the law, I have no don’t that her administration will attack the constitution , Christians all of our rights with a special interest in taking our gun rights away.

Trump

Trump is a big unknown, in full disclosure I support him, I am a typical right leaning independent, I will not be rioting just because Hilary wins, as messed up as the systems is that is not what you do, however BLM (Hate Group), the “new black panther party” and the Soros supported occupy thugs are violent and based on the leaked e-mails so are the Hilary people. So even if Trump tries to run from the middle and give everyone a seat I can totally see the Obama/Hillary hate machine starting violent civil unrest and forcing the hand of typically calm patriots to defend against such actions.

The People

ca. 1980-2001
We the People

 

Finally it will come down to we the people, we know without a doubt the racism has increased in the last 8 years, the current party in power has used it to promote its agenda by keeping the people separated. This has continued into the election and to the supporters.

I like Trump so I am a Racist , If you like Hillary you are a socialist. These statements are NOT universally true in fact the far right and left of each party is really the minority in my view, but between the media helping full the racism and the Obama hate groups out in full swing those of in the middle do not get heard, we do not matter. That battle is lost we are a house divided and on the 9th no matter who wins unless we unite we will fall, our Constitutional Republic will be gone and the only winners will be the 1% and the ruling class. The day after we the people need to stand as one.

The Media

free-press

Kudos to the media they have fueled the anti-American movement for years, they love socialism. You can see it in their ads, interviews they don’t even pretend anymore. What really makes me wonder is how so many of us are to stupid to see what they have done, and really worse yet what they have done to themselves.

The First Amendment has been hack away little by little, again you may like it, for now but sooner or later it will be your speech they limit. Hate speech in my opinion is a made up word the 1A is not intended to protect  speech everyone agrees with, why would we even need the right? The problem with calling everything “hate speech” is in doing so you prevent legitimate debate, and it miss proportionality  affects religion.

As an example the Bible I follow is clear on homosexuality, it is a sin. That same Bible also tells me that to hate a person is a sin, and to hate them for a sin? well that’s just hypocrisy. The media however calls this hate speech, I suppose the media and politicians hate the word sin because it includes lying and stealing that said as a Christian I to sin and fall short of the glory of God, with these facts in hand hate speech becomes instead my ability to worship my God as I am commanded. I will not get into the cake baking argument but preachers should have no obligation to perform a ceremony that they are taught is a sin.

But I am trailing off, in short the media one of the only companies where their product is protected by our bill of rights has become blatantly dishonest and Bias, a fact that should worry us all. The day after the media could make our break us as a nation.

Hope

First and foremost I want to be wrong, if Trump or Hillary wins I want us to once again to start to unite, it is not impossible. Hillary could be using Obamas ability to give a speech and mobilize the vote and may actually try to unite the country. Trump when you listen to the entirety of his speech’s is not a bigot , between media snippets, loaded questions and his tendency to think everyone gets what he is trying to say. He may through his actions prove to be able to unite, something Obama has not only failed at, he has failed intentionally.

As I stated I am for Trump, his abortion stance and first and second amendment rights stances best fit my believes, the fact that Bush and Romney hate him is a plus.

In the end it is we the people who need to take control because without that not only will the winner fail, we might just lose our country. Besides the end of commercials I will be praying for the day after.

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.

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
