Praying, O, LORD – this will touch the hearts of Your people and that they too, will be a light to others.
Ahhhh, Saturday morning. There IS no better day of the week to sleep in. Saturdays are the days in which we treasure and look forward to rest from a busy week. Maybe it’s that day that you just lay around the house with your pajamas on watching old movies. Unfortunately, this post is a plea for you to accept the reality that TODAY is no longer SATURDAY. TODAY is MONDAY, and it’s time to Wake up, O, Sleeper. We have lots of work to do. But first, our eyes must be opened to the truth.
In 1 John 1:5, the beloved disciple John writes:
“This is the message we have heard from Him (Jesus) and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”
To watch the news you might think the world is over as we know it AND you would be right. It’s sad, isn’t it? To let it all go. You know, the comfort and security. That utter dependency on self and our government to bring us happiness has always been our pride and “fall back.” Now the reality sets in that we have been led astray innocently into putting all of our trust into a system rather than GOD. Isn’t this what Israel did? This system, the American Government – the American dream, with all its freedoms to worship and to protect oneself from our enemies, and to speak out against the system if need be – is perishing right before our very eyes.
I saw a statistic yesterday that said that our President has an all-time low approval rating of 48%. My question is….who are the 52% that actually think he has done a fabulous job in leading this nation out of debt, supporting ALL peoples constitutional rights. (not just gays, liberal educators, and Muslims)? I also read an article in a National Security Administration manual that listed characteristics of a potential terrorist. I found it interesting that many of the characteristics on that list would have been considered admirable in this nation at one time. I am definitely considered a terrorist, people. Are you considered a terrorist to the U.S. Government and to the world? And if not – why not? Jesus said, “Since they persecuted me, naturally they will persecute you” in John 15:20.
Have you actually met me? What about my family? I am a bible believing Christian, who owns a gun who believes the bible is inerrant. I also believe what it says about the “End Times” (yes, that was listed on the Terrorist Watch List), and finally I homeschool my children, just to name a few. Notice what all these things have in common…no dependency on the government for my faith, my protection, my future or the education of my children. You mean to tell me that our government is threatened by those who depend on an outside source other than them? This outside source being our Creator God. So this is why my government and others are threatened by me? How could these things possibly upset a bunch of people in Washington? I suppose with the recent release that our government is monitoring FB, emails, and phone calls – I’m sure someone’s computer is dinging in D.C. right now, due to all the key words I’ve typed in this blog (i.e. president, homosexuals, guns, Christian, end times prophecy, homeschool, and Muslims).:) Wow! There are dark spiritual things going on here that we cannot even imagine. But I will not be intimidated. If I get audited, I’ll let you know. J
I used to think when I heard people talk like this years ago that they were conspiracy theorists and nuts. As it turns out – THEY WERE RIGHT! So who’s nuts now? I’ll tell you – those who refuse to see the most obvious and blatant abuse of governmental power we have ever seen in our nation. Also, if you call yourself a disciple of Jesus Christ then the eyes of your heart SHOULD be opened to these things. The eyes of your heart should take notice of world events in addition to U.S. news. It’s important that we focus on the happenings in Israel and those coming against her. Most biblical scholars agree that the events happening in the Middle East are very revealing in God’s prophetic time table. Aren’t you interested in knowing what time it is?
I have a feeling of loss here concerning this nation. Last year, my children and I got to go with my husband to D.C. on a business trip. As we sat in a theatre at the Museum of American History, I wiped tears away as I watched a beautiful and touching documentary of the history of our nation. The reason I wept is because I knew in my spirit that it was all over; the liberties, patriotism and the God-fearing attitude of most Americans. I still on occasions find myself mourning the idea and the loss of it all. Change is hard, isn’t it?
The Spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus Christ. We need to wake up people. Haven’t you heard the expression, “Wake up the ‘Sleeping Giant.’?” The sleeping giant, in
