Standing against big government and for the people!
Can we all agree to disagree in love for one another?
I wrote quite a response to another discussion that we had posted America: A Dark Vision and it was too long to post as a reply and therefore this blog is a response to Mary Allen, my sister in the LORD who has done so much to encourage each of us and uplift our spirits for the times in which we are now living.
The difference between what we see happening all around s in America today and what we have become as a nation is this: I am not a “Pretriber”, nor is my husband, Jake. I do not place my salvation on whether or not we are going to be raptured out of here, but on what Jesus did for me at Calvary.
It is hard to not accept the fact that RIGHT NOW our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and in the Sudan are being tortured and martyred for their faith in Jesus. Try to tell them that they are not living in tribulation ...I don't think they would agree.
With that being said, my hope, my faith and my desire to serve our LORD remain only in Him. It is from Him that I draw my strength from the darkness that we see happening all around us and from that which we know from scriptures is to come before the LORD returns in all of his glory and majesty.
I appreciate you ministry here because we need to be encouraged and uplifted so that we can continue the good fight and so that we can finish the race to which we have been called until the LORD takes us home to be with Him. Some, of us will be here to witness his triumphant return, while others will be martyred because of their testimony for Yeshua.
“When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained;” - Revelation 6:9
None of us wants to think that we are going to be one of the souls under the alter, but this is exactly what is happening to our brothers and sisters on the other side of the globe. Why is it that we, as Americans, think that God's judgments do not apply to us?
I was just reading and researching the scriptures this morning and the LORD led me to I Kings Chapter 11. Here we learn that the Hebrew people, who were then being ruled by King Solomon, were to be divided because:
"Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon."
Have we not also sacrificed our children at the alters of Molech? Was this not exactly the campaign that Obama won his election on ... gaining the votes of women who wish to sacrifice their children and the men who are grateful when they do because when they sowed their wild oats, they didn't get a crop failure?
Our nation is going to come under judgment and I honestly believe that America, like the children of Israel as a nation, will be divided. Is this not obviously the direction we are going in all of the secession movements we are seeing across our land?
David Barton, in his book Myth of Separation, tells the story of how our ancestors felt about being ruled by a tyrant king:
Not only from pulpit and town hall came the cries for liberty, but now the average colonist blended his voice in support of total independence from King George [Obama. Most Crown-appointed governors remained loyal to their king. One wrote to the Board of Trade in England saying:
"If you ask an American, who is his master? He will tell you he has none, nor any governor but Jesus Christ."
This may have been the incident which gave rise to the cry which was carried by the messengers of the newly formed Committee for Intercolonial Correspondence:
"NO KING BUT KING JESUS"
Let this now become the cry of our land once again! AMEN!!
I wish I could believe as the Pretribers do that we are just going to be "beamed out of here", but I cannot from what I have been given to understand from the scriptures in the final chapters of Revelation (which gives the exact chronology of the chain of events), and so we must proclaim the warning to prepare, first and foremost in our spiritual lives, because ... and on this we can both agree ... Jesus is coming soon!
If anyone reading this does not have a relationship with our LORD, now is the time to search out your heart and ask Him what you should be doing with your life. Ask Him to come in and make Him LORD and Saviour. This is my prayer for you.
