I would ask these same Christians this: Who did you vote for in the last election? Mitt Romney or Barack Obama? Not much of a choice, was it? But, I didn’t hear all the hoopla from conservative Christians about having to vote for a Mormon. Ah, yes, I guess because he looks all “holy” on the outside.
People have been so beaten down in America with our current “President” and Vice president going all over the world, especially the muslim world, bowing and apologizing for America.
We have forgotten that it’s a good thing to love our country and be proud of who we are. We have forgotten what it is like to have strong men…yes, MEN in positions of power.
We have been shamed into thinking that men should not really be men. They should be so careful to not speak a word that “offends” feminists. Men have been systematically feminized psychologically, and I do dare to say, spiritually, and it shows up even in the physical. You know, the whole thing about telling men “get in touch with your feminine side”…even in the church! Then, you tell them…go out and win wars! There’s so much that needs to be said about that. The church bears so much responsibility for the state our country is in.
My heart leaps to hear a candidate for President talk like someone who has a spine! I cannot stand politically correct politispeak.
The pendulum has swung so far to the left…politically, socially, and in every other way. We need a Samson! Using the jawbone of a donkey he slays 1,000 Philistines! Hmmm.. there must be some symbolism in there. A brash New Yorker using the jawbone of a dead donkey to slay the Philistines. Brings a lot to mind to ponder.
Another idol is being torn down.
We’ve seen idols of political correctness take a hit right between the eyes. Thank you, Donald Trump!
Someone (Trump) finally spoke up clearly for the American people, for our Veterans who have been treated with such disrespect, for Americans who have lost jobs to illegals, and even worse, those who have lost loved ones from being raped and killed by illegal immigrant criminals.
On to another idol. The media mountain.
Fox News always appeared to be the conservative news organization, relatively so. However, the owner, Rupert Murdock, is an Australian who is an activist for open borders (meaning the US wouldn’t be a sovereign nation) illegal immigration, H1B visas (jobs to foreigners instead of Americans, something Ted Cruz advocates) and amnesty. BTW, citizenship is not a right, it’s a privilege to those who earn it! Now, we find out that the Fox News debate questions are being framed by an executive at Fox who is the father of a top person with the Rubio campaign.(Rubio being the one who tried to push through amnesty a few years ago.)
This a clear conflict of interest, but they never bothered to tell the viewers about that, did they?
Fox is making a mockery of the Republican debates, making the candidates look like fools, clamoring like immature children for attention, hoping for a sound bite, while Hillary and the Democrat debates come across as “more respectful”.
Could it be that their agenda is still not exposed? Is it possible that there might be even more skeletons in the Fox’s closet?
I wrote this on Veterans Day but didn’t post it, although my husband, Michael Pink, read it and encouraged me to share it then. I just sometimes feel like a broken record complaining about the awful condition our country is in and the lack of involvement by Christians, especially leaders. However, if this encourages someone who feels the same way I do, then it’s worth something. May God bless our America once again., because of His great mercy and for His glory.
A friend of mine recently said, “I see that you’ve become political.” Yes, I know it shows in my public social media posts. Well, here’s why.
In December, 1973, I was gloriously born again in a little Baptist church and water baptized that same day. A few years later, alone in my bedroom, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit, as in Acts Chapter 2. I’ve been down many roads and experienced a lot of life, but since coming to know Jesus, my heart has always been devoted to Him. Being born again is a supernatural experience, not just a mental acceptance.
What does that have to do with politics?
This. I was blessed to be born in America, the greatest nation that God has ever raised up. Our freedom and the way of life that is ours is precious and must be guarded and protected. Men and women over all our history have given their lives for what we have enjoyed.
As America has more and more grown cold toward The Lord God Almighty, and Jesus Christ, His Son, we have more and more suffered for it. Those who have no clue about righteousness, scream out for their “freedom” from His love and guidance, and get their way, and our country becomes bound by their ignorance.
“So I will go and speak to their leaders. Surely they know the ways of the LORD and understand God’s laws.” But the leaders, too, as one man, had thrown off God’s yoke and broken his chains.” Jeremiah 5:5
Why has this happened? In my opinion, it is because the Christians, both in the pulpit and in the pew, have complained about it, but haven’t been willing to become engaged in the fight for the soul of America. How many, so called Christians, just didn’t show up at the polls in the last 2 elections, because their favorite candidate wasn’t the nominee, or because the nominee wasn’t a part time preacher? Maybe they didn’t want to “vote against their conscience.” Well, I understand that. But, if we aren’t careful, it will be more than your conscience that is violated.
The days of complacency are over, if we want to have any residue of what our God given America once was. You have chosen, by now, whether you will suit up or not. As for me, I cannot but speak.
I think that history will show who spoke up, who was willing to get their hands dirty to fight to save this nation. I have often thought about how Christians are happy to have the rough and ready, United States Marines, the Fighting Army and all other armed forces, to give their lives for us, but preachers aren’t willing to have the courage to speak up against the sins of our nation.
Just go and read about the complacency of the church in Nazi Germany. What will be said of you, man or woman of God?
Where are the prophets who should be calling out the President, by name, and other leaders for their unrighteous deeds? Where is the one who went to David and confronted him about his sin?
No, the prophets are just caught up in giving some vague “word” to someone in the church, which has no power, means nothing, and doesn’t come to pass. I wish that some so called “deep” ministers would come up from the deep and go out and show the world what a strong fighting man looks like!
People are saying, we need a political leader. It’s leadership that is lacking. Well, isn’t it interesting that at the same time we are lacking leadership in the White House, we are lacking the same in the church? There are a few that I have seen, and thank God for them, but in comparison to the enormity of the problems that we are experiencing, the few are way too few. Is this a spiritual manifestation? BECAUSE it is lacking in the church, it is lacking in our nation?
Will God help us?
My husband often jokingly uses this expression, “You know what the bible says”, and then he’ll say something the bible doesn’t say. In this case, it would be “God helps those who help themselves”. The bible doesn’t say that, of course. But, guess what? It says, ” I have given you the Promised land.” BUT, they had to go in and kill the giants and take it! I listened today to one minister, Mario Marillo, who is saying the same things I am saying. Check out his posts at Mario Murillo Ministries.
So, on this Veterans Day 2015, I thank God for those men and women who have the courage to go in and take the land. Those who will actually do what has to be done to defend freedom and the right to worship the True and Living God.
Praise the Lord, who is my rock.
He trains my hands for war
and gives my fingers skill for battle.
He is my loving ally and my fortress,
my tower of safety, my rescuer.
He is my shield, and I take refuge in him.
He makes the nations submit to me. Psalm 144:1-2
Wouldn’t it be awesome, if, after all their sacrifice, those who enjoy the freedoms our brave soldiers have purchased and defended, would lift a finger to maintain the ground that was gained?
Back in the 1980’s…
I was just going about my business, when suddenly the Lord dropped on me what I called a “prayer burden”. I subsequently had encounters in the Spirit that were the most profound of my life. I was drawn into prayer and He taught me how to wait on Him, until He prayed through me. This was all new to me and I was like a little child, learning to obey. One of the things at that time that I was stirred to pray for was for the church to repent of it’s complacency. That’s a whole different topic, but not for this post.
The other thing on my heart at the time was to pray for the United States of America. Many things have taken place in my life since then, but still there is the call to pray for this nation. We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Israel. We went there to set our feet on the ground and pray for Israel and for their election. Thank God for the miracle outcome! After the election, I was praying at the Wailing Wall for family, for friends, for my husband and I and our future in the Lord’s purposes, and for our Israel. Then as I laid my hands on the wall and began to pray for America, the tears came, and the burden was there. The tears are not those of acceptance of “all is lost” but of intercession. There is hope, because there is God.
This afternoon as I went to have some time with the Lord. I had no agenda. But, I waited, and after a while, the anointing came to pray for America, once again.
The fight is the age old one…between good and evil, between the Lord and His enemy, the deceiver. The enemy who fell from heaven like lightening, still wants the worship that belongs only to the Lord God. So, he has turned many to a belief in a false prophet and called himself by a name they think is their god.
The battle for America is because the enemy of The Lord God Almighty wants to destroy this nation that the Lord raised up to be a beacon of hope and of freedom. America wears the name of Christ like no other. She was Providentially founded on the bible, on Judeo-Christian principles, for the Divine purposes of God.
Without going into all the details of my prayer, I just want to share this one part… I began to pray for the Father to send the Heavenly host of angels, and Michael, the Archangel, to fight for this nation. Even as when Daniel prayed, Gabriel came to him and told him that he had been detained until Michael was sent to fight against the prince of Persia. Read about that in Daniel chapter 10. I could see the hosts of angels being led by Michael, the Chief Prince, to do battle for the very soul of our beloved America. It’s not a movie. This is real.
After my prayer time, followed by a short snooze, I opened my computer and was led to a Facebook page, hosted by my friend Joanne Bush. https://www.facebook.com/groups/pray4keeps/ I haven’t had much time to visit her page recently, but as I looked around, I came across the following prophecy by someone I do not know. I was so encouraged, and you will understand why when you read it. God gives confirmation to His people.
Why does God work through His people as we pray? Why is this His way of acting in behalf of those He loves? We could give our answers, but suffice it to say, that’s just how it is. That is His system. So, our part is to get on board. I know there are many that are called to pray for America, to stand in the gap, to believe that nothing is impossible with God. If He calls us to pray, then He calls us to believe. When you pray, believe.
As I said to Him today, “All power and authority belongs to You, O Lord. You can do all things. After all, heaven is Your throne and the earth is Your footstool.” Isaiah 66:1
