I sit here watching the commentaries and news stories about all the most hot topics today. What is amazing and mind boggling is the fact, today, people 'talk' about freedom of speech, but when it comes to free speech, that is only for some groups. Some sects of people. It is "against the law" to have your own opinion today and people are ready to act as arresting officer, prosecutor, judge, and jury, if you voice an opinion contrary to the masses. You are not given the same right to what you believe, no, if you say you support Trump, or support marriage is supposed to be between a man and a woman, that the unborn baby needs to be protected from evil corporations like Planned Parenthood, or that the US needs to fix the immigration system and set up COMMON SENSE regulations to protect America from those who clearly and have verify-ably stated their goal is to infiltrate the whole world and take over the whole world, and they enter into 'free' countries under the guise of "peace" but back in their homeland, they are cutting off people's heads, hanging people, burning people alive, destroying property, cutting off women's breasts, kidnapping young girls raping them and forcing them into marriage, all under the name of ISLAM or some other false religion- oh, but the one's leaving their country are the 'good' Muslims and they just want to be able to practice their belief in peace, but is that a fact? Is it fact that when the Muslims come to America or any other western country do they just practice their religion in peace, or do they start to ask for Sharia Law instead of the law of land they are residing, or do they start to demand special privileges because of their religion? or do their 'members' engage in killing sprees, unprovoked, on unsuspecting innocent people all in the name of Islam?
Why are the stories of 'refugees' raping and terrorizing those towns overseas and now those countries are trying their hardest to get them out not on every news channel? Germany declared a crisis on Islamic refugees raping of German woman AND CHILDREN, a breakdown in social order. Surely these stories are not really happening, because if it was, the people in America would rise up to protest placing the country in harm...no this it not the case, they are marching to let them in, under the belief that America is different than Germany or any other country, that America can control them or the unrealistic belief that they are 'peaceful'. And if you are someone who supports keeping those kind of people out, get ready to be called every kind of derogatory name, vilified, ridiculed, and hated on even to the point of physical violence. "Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas, anymore." I feel like a character in a fantasy movie, because I can't help but think, are the way things are now real, surely we are not this far gone left, actually beyond left, we have entered a new dimension of ridiculousness. If you are 'dark skinned' in America and you support Trump, you are automatically lumped in with the Klu Klux Klan, every hate group, a bigot, 'uncle tom', and they do all they can to attack your 'intelligence'. If you support the Constitution of America, you are 'stuck in the past' and need to 'get with the times'.
The "times" I see are the democracy of America is becoming the Socialist America. The masses believe the lies from the evil media, the government reports that the unemployment rate is 4.7%, that 96% of people in America are working. Oh, we can believe what our government tells us, because they are trustworthy, they are honorable, they don't lie, they don't cheat...oh wait, that is my fantasy, we have a government full of backdoor illegal deals, the good ole boy system, the more money you have you can get your way, lying, cheating are the most common virtues to be a government official. If you believe that 96% of people are working/or financially supported, you need to check yourself into a psychiatric inpatient facility.
Right now on Fox, they are showing the protests at the airport, with signs, "We love our Muslim neighbors". They love them because they are not shooting them or cutting their heads off. Do we have current proof of what happens when those who believe in Islam take over a town/country? Yes we do, Muslims as a group are not 'inclusive', it is covert to Islam or die. RIGHT NOW any other religion that is not Islam in Egypt is nearly extinct, and those who remain, largely Christians, are systematically persecuted, harassed, abused, their daughters kidnapped, their property confiscated, houses burned down, but Islam is a religion of peace. It is so sad how many are so blind. Their goal is to spread Islam around the world, but I am no surprised because the bible tells us that Satan will deceive many through 'peace'. The Muslims coming to America are the "peaceful ones". There are millions of refugees all over the world, that are supposed to be 'running' away from the 'bad Muslims', but something that has been repeated over and over, IF the majority of Muslims are 'peaceful WHY are they not fighting back against the 'smaller' bad Muslims? And why are their own practicing Muslim countries not taking their own people??
Everyone can have an opinion, as long as you agree with what ever they believe, but if you dissent, you are the enemy. If you are black but don't support Obama, you are traitor, if you are black and don't support the Black Lives Matter movement, you are a traitor. If you are Christian and say anything about sin-especially homosexuality, you are racist, judgmental, bigot. But if we were to respond in like kind calling those who disagree with us "white washed tombs, wolves in sheep clothing, wicked, lawless, anti-christs, selfish, haters, the damned, foolish, unnatural, abominations, worthless, stupid, naive, gullible" OH watch out! Now you, the Christian, are being judgmental, and hypocritical. Christians do not hate Muslims, Homosexuals, fornicators, liars, murderers, child molesters, rapists, thieves, Buddhist, Communists, Socialists, or any other sect or religion, but that does not mean we agree with their lifestyle and Christians are commanded to TELL THE TRUTH to the whole world. What is clear that the world is most definitely under the deception of Satan is the one religion that ACTUALLY that supports COEXISTING is the one religion that the world rejects. Hindu's, Buddhists, Communists, Muslims, fake Christians- kill in the name of their religion. True Christianity says to 'turn the other cheek, let yourself be cheated, used' and to SHAKE THE DUST OFF YOU FEET, meaning when you tell someone about the gospel, if they don't believe then you MOVE ON, you don't KILL them for not believing! It was wrong for the Catholic church to torture and kill those who would not covert to Catholicism, it is wrong for ANY people/person/government to KILL others in the name of their religion. True Christianity is the only PEACEFUL religion. But of course the world is blind to this fact, so we have what have, they hate Christians, and love those who have hurt/killed/used/abused others. Go figure.
I counsel many different people and a common response I get when I offer solutions to their problems, they say, "I don't want anything to do with God or the Bible". They are struggling with depression, anxiety, hopelessness, relationship problems, but they don't want the real answers to their problems. The fact is they want to learn how to be happy living in sin. There is no such thing. "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith and FOLLOWING AFTER DECEITFUL SPIRITS AND DOCTRINES OF DEMONS." 1 Timothy 4:1. The bible says that when you reject God, you are a slave to sin, and Satan is a hard task master.
Time is the teller of truth. When the war that is experienced in other parts of the world comes knocking on America's door, all those who were against moral standards, righteous rules, common sense regulations, please don't cry then. That is something I don't understand. You do what you want to do because 'it's your body', 'it's your life', but when the consequences of living contrary to God come, THEN you want to cry out, "God save me" or "Why did this happen to me?" When that time comes, God will have closed the door on His mercy, only His wrath for all the ungodliness and what is doubly/trippely sad, that even when God releases the demons from hell to torment those who took the mark of the beast, and sends down hail, and all the other judgments, the people will STILL reject God. The Bible written so long ago predicted the very specific things that are happening before our very eyes. The Bible says that in the last days, they will not endure sound doctrine-this prophecy is being fulfilled now. People will be lovers of self and haters of good-this prophecy is fulfilled. Anti-Christs will rise in the name of 'god' and kill those who disagree with them in the name of their 'god'-this prophecy has been fulfilled. Men will have sex with men and women will do they same-this prophecy has been fulfilled. There would be a form of 'godliness', but not really the real God, this has has been fulfilled. So many other prophecy's have been fulfilled. There is nothing left but the revealing the head honcho of evil, Satan. We could see Him in our life time. That is why if you call yourself a Christian, you must stay ready, you must stay focused on the main goal, run to get the prize, purpose in your heart now to stand up not cave in the pressure, don't give in to the pressure to conform. You may be the only 'sane' one in a crowd of a thousand, but that is okay, Jesus said that the world will hate His own, so don't be surprised, when they hate you, when they revile and gossip, and vilify you. They hated Jesus and what He said too.
There is going to be a Day of Judgment, and God will judge everyone who has ever lived, His wrath is going to poured out on all the wicked and ungodly. The eyes of the unrepentant wicked need to be opened and the ears unplugged so they can see and hear the truth. The Good News is Salvation is a free gift from God, you can't work for it or buy because the price has already been paid with the Blood of Jesus Christ and Believing in Jesus gets us into the Kingdom of God and saves us from the righteous wrath of God. But that is not all, He gives us a new heart and mind NOW, and we receive some of His blessing from heaven NOW and are equipped to be able to live a life that is holy and acceptable to Him NOW.
1. Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is real, He lived and died and rose from the grave.
2. Believe that you are a sinner, repent-turn from your sins and realize and accept you need Jesus.
3. Confess that Jesus is your Lord and God
4. Find a local Bible preaching church that does obey the commandment for water baptism for the remission of your sins and to identify yourself with Christ.
This is just the first step to a lifelong journey of growing in truth and love with the God who created this earth and everything in it, including every human being that has ever lived.
