Are Christians Making Kim Davis Their New Idol?

What a well written thought provoking post! A must read article especially for Christians, take the time and rounder it awhile Christian. I totally agree with everything written, though I did post thing in favor of her. I too didn’t feel right about it, something was off. Was probably the Holy Spirit nudging me. Once again take the time for this one.

Exposing Modern Mugwumps

My comments: It’s running 5 to 1 in agreement with my article on another website. I am truly appalled at what Kim Davis, Huckabee, and Staver have done, and they all call themselves Christians. The 5 to 1 means the believers in Christ DO HAVE GREAT DISCERNMENT! Who will Kim Davis ever win to Christ? Certainly NOT any homosexuals, she has made them hate us. And in staying in her job, rather than resigning, she doesn’t remember the verses, BE YE SEPARATE, WHAT DOES THE LIGHT HAVE TO DO WITH DARKNESS, COME OUT OF HER, We are to be the salt and light…and when we point fingers at someone and scream SINNER, there are 3 fingers pointing back at us. Of course she probably doesn’t want to give up the 80K she’s allegedly making either. 

I was never a Michele Bachman fan, but I give a lot of credit to…

Whatever Happened to John 3:16?

Great read and point, “attributing, the ultimate reason for these evils to the very fact that we are living in a world which is ruled by the prince of the power of the air, and the rulers of darkness of this world, which is of course, Satan and his demons.” To those that say why did God create a world like this? He didn’t, He had something entirely different in mind. H/T to http://www.christiansanonymous.info/ for leading me to this post.

EvenSoCome

Quite literally, every day we learn of another example of man’s inhumanity to man. News organizations, both traditional and Internet-based, daily report on the atrocities and unspeakable evil which permeates, affects, touches, or in some way influences the lives of nearly every person on planet Earth. We are being constantly made aware of new and terrible diseases, or the resurgence or mutations of age-old maladies which are increasingly affecting numbers of peoples all over the world. And, weather events and natural disasters continue to increase in severity and frequency.

However, those of us who consider ourselves to be a part of the True Church, the Body of Christ, point to prophetic Scripture and declare that the Bible says these things are to be so as we approach the end of days. We of course do so by sharing these things from our pulpits, or in our weekly Bible studies, or…

He came for the common folk.

I wanted to share my devotional read for this morning with you. No one is more for, understands, relates to the common man better then Jesus.

The great physician and friend

“Why have people been so attracted to Jesus down through the centuries? The bible answers that question in a simple phrase, “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). As you look at the special relationship Jesus had with so many people, you must be convinced that Jesus is on the side of common people. Anybody who was heart, sick, mistreated, lonely, disenfranchised or condemned-people like you and me-where the ones Jesus came to help.

Mathew wrote, ” when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your eat with tax collectors and sinners”? On hearing this, Jesus said, ” It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick” ( Matthew 9:11-12). In essence, Jesus was saying, “My job hear on earth is to get sinners back to God, not to worry about the good people.”

  Jesus does not present himself to us as ” holier then though”, but rather as a friend. He said, ” I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15).

We are not second class citizens. The bible says we are part of God’s family. Hebrews 4 records that Jesus, who is now in heaven, intercedes for us that He understands our weaknesses. We are encouraged to “approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). AUTHOR: Jim Conway

The passage of the day, that goes with this reading is Hebrews 4:14-16. I read the whole chapter for context and the beginning starts with “Therefor”. I was taught when I see “therefor” I have to read before the verse to see what “therefor” is there for. I started in Hebrews 3:12-19 and then Hebrews 4:1-16.

Hope you enjoyed and got blessed like I did. NO politician, no man or woman or anything else understands or has your back like Jesus does.

God bless America and you.10258766_547987208655516_2510133947547482093_n

The good news.

I was reading in my devotional this morning and some of the scripture that was part of the reading took me on a refreshing journey. The scripture I’m going to share just really spoke to me and was a good reminder to me and just screamed needed to be shared, especially in the time in history we find ourselves in.

The scripture is taken from two great sites. Bible Hub and Bible Gateway .

My reading was in John 16. I always try to read the part before my reading for some context so I looked at John 15:19-27  and it was really just refreshing I guess you’d say and I thought I need to share this as a reminder to others believers and a explanation to the world and-or none believers of why they act as they do towards Christians and GOD. John 15:19-27The Message (MSG) Keep in mind this is JESUS talking.

Hated by the World

18-19 “If you find the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me. If you lived on the world’s terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I picked you to live on God’s terms and no longer on the world’s terms, the world is going to hate you.

20 “When that happens, remember this: Servants don’t get better treatment than their masters. If they beat on me, they will certainly beat on you. If they did what I told them, they will do what you tell them.

21-25 “They are going to do all these things to you because of the way they treated me, because they don’t know the One who sent me. If I hadn’t come and told them all this in plain language, it wouldn’t be so bad. As it is, they have no excuse. Hate me, hate my Father—it’s all the same. If I hadn’t done what I have done among them, works no one has ever done, they wouldn’t be to blame. But they saw the God-signs and hated anyway, both me and my Father. Interesting—they have verified the truth of their own Scriptures where it is written, ‘They hated me for no good reason.’

26-27 “When the Friend I plan to send you from the Father comes—the Spirit of Truth issuing from the Father—he will confirm everything about me. You, too, from your side must give your confirming evidence, since you are in this with me from the start.”  The “spirit of truth” really stood out to me this morning besides the obvious sign of the times. I had forgotten I guess this name among others for the HOLY SPIRIT and why we are so dumbfounded why people can’t see the obvious.

For context on John 15:18-27 check out chapter 15 of John. I love the way it starts out, keep in mind again this is JESUS talking.

Aramaic Bible in Plain English

1“I AM THE LIVING GOD, The True Vine, and my Father is the vine dresser.” Read the whole chapter here. John 15
Now John 16. Check out both translations. Again, keep in mind JESUS talking with exception of parts of verses, 17, 18, 19, 30 and 31.
John 16 The Message (MSG)
16 1-4 “I’ve told you these things to prepare you for rough times ahead. They are going to throw you out of the meeting places. There will even come a time when anyone who kills you will think he’s doing God a favor. They will do these things because they never really understood the Father. I’ve told you these things so that when the time comes and they start in on you, you’ll be well-warned and ready for them. Read the chapter here. John 16 The Message (MSG)
And from the  Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1“I have spoken these things with you that you would not be subverted.” 2“For they shall put you out from their assemblies, and the hour will come when everyone who would kill you will think that he presents an offering to God.” 3“And they shall do these things because they do not know either my Father or me.” Read the chapter here. John 16 Aramaic Bible in Plain English 
Look at the world today. Look at Obama and his progressive administration, friends and agenda. The “Lame Stream Medea”.
Israel is the bad guy, Christian are being killed and persecuted, thrown in prison all over the world. To Americas shame and probably why we are not mentioned in prophecy. WE are no longer a factor in biblical history or history for that matter. We used to be with GOD’s help in a sense the “Watchman on the wall”. The craziness that is going on all over the world now can only be attributed to the absence of America and the silence of her Christian citizens as a leader and one that stands for good against evil for the innocent and needy. This administration, representing us, ( because we have set ideally by while the progressive agenda has been allowed to flourish and take root with it’s godless agenda. ) makes deals and helps the enemy’s of GOD and stands silently by while it all happens.
A few headlines for your information.
“Both Iran and Saudi Arabia maintain fairly poor reputations in the Western world for their approach to human rights. While Iran remains isolated through sanctions and is frequently vilified, the oppression of political dissent by Saudi Arabia is frequently overlooked by both their Western allies and the public.Not only has Saudi imprisoned up to 30 times more political prisoners, conditions in Saudi jails are also notably worse than in Iran.” Read more. Who are the ‘political prisoners’ in Saudi and Iran?“A conservative civil liberties group on Sunday accused the Obama administration of betraying an American pastor jailed in Iran for practicing his Christian faith.

Think about it.

Was reading in Mathew this morning. You ever notice that where JESUS first walked and where the gospel was first preached, Middle East, Asia, Magog which is Russia now, Africa… Are the most hostile, dangerous, oppressive places on earth right now.

Why? Because they all have denied CHRIST and have the most anti Christian-JESUS CHRIST, religious restricting policies on earth. With the exception of Israel who is still waiting for the MESSIAH, all part of GOD’s plan so that we ALL have a chance to except HIM as our LORD and savior, forgiver of our sins.

Now, take a look at America and the path we are on. The progressives have been taking GOD out of our society since around the 60’s, ( With our help as we silently stand by and do nothing )Before the 60’s actually but that’s when they got a little more open about it when they started taking GOD out of the schools, the courts and eventually especially today all mention of HIM in public or anything to do with Christianity. Their foundation is godless and they believe, man and science have all they answers. Do the research on them for yourself. it’s plain to see they think they are little god’s.
With this administration progressiveness is in full view. Remember the democrat’s convention in 2012? Going out of their way to reject GOD.

I remember in the 90’s I was at a mall in Riverside California and I found a cool t-shirt. It was like a concert t-shirt with the bands name and locations of the tour. This t-shirt was a Christian t-shirt. On the back it said the second coming and then had a list of all the country’s if I remember right. The young girl that helped me was probably in her 20’s maybe 21-22 I guess. She asked me what it meant? I remember I was shocked and just couldn’t comprehend how someone didn’t know what it meant. I was a pretty new Christian back then but even before I was a Christian I knew about this kind of stuff basically, thanks to my upbringing. I was just floored, I always remember it and needles to say I got a chance to witness that day.

That in mind for those of you who have never heard of the “Gog and Magog War”  here is a nice little article on it, with a map of the region given the event’s of today with Russia and Israel.

“Ezekiel 38-39 reveals a fascinating and detailed prophecy about a future war campaign against Israel. This war is known as the “Gog and Magog War” because the people of Magog and their leader Gog will lead the attack. Scripture clearly teaches that this particular war will be a turning point for Israel, with regard to their relationship with God.”

“The sobering, yet exciting aspect of this study is that for the first time since Ezekiel penned these prophecies, the countries that will gather against Israel have built an alliance in recent years. The prophetic puzzle pieces are now in place. It is just a matter of time, that is, God’s timing before these prophecies find fulfillment.” Read more. The Gog and Magog War

With what we have allowed and are allowing today as we Christian cower and remain silent, is there any surprise America isn’t mentioned in the bible? We need to get our Christian balls back. Remember who it is that said,19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”  Luke 10:19New International Version (NIV)

And 7 “For God has not given us a spirit of [a]timidity, but of power and love and [b]discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7-10New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Think about the for-mentioned areas-county’s where Christians are really being persecuted, tortured and killed for being Christians and standing up and NOT denying CHRIST. As apposed to Christians in America where we are just basically called names and easily intimated . We should all hang our heads in shame and repent!

Make no mistake about it the LORD has been talking to me on this subject and I, with HIS help are in the process of making some changes in my life.

I have been getting  Decision magazine in the mail recently for free, ( Not sure how I got it but I plan on subscribing next pay day ) some articles are available on line. Anyways check out a couple of the articles. From Franklin Graham “Heaven is not for cowards! Recent comments I made while speaking at an event in Washington, D.C., have drawn some controversy. In a challenge to those who are afraid to speak out on moral issues addressed in the Bible, I referenced a chilling passage—a warning from God about the most catastrophic indictment the world will face someday:” Read more. Cowards or Overcomers? Standing Strong on God’s Word

A friend of mine shared this video with me before I read the article above.

Franklin Graham at Watchmen on the Wall 2014

And this one, I remember seeing it in some headlines but honestly didn’t pay to much attention to it.

“Five seconds. Maybe less. That’s how long it took identical twins David and Jason Benham to recover from the kick-in-the-gut feeling they had when HGTV officials told them on May 7 that their new show had been canceled amid complaints about their stance on biblical values.”

“All of a sudden it was like my back stiffened, and I kind of bobbed my head like a fighter who wipes away the blood (before continuing),” David said. “We knew instantly we were going after the bully.”

“The “bully,” they say, is the obnoxiously intolerant side of the gay and pro-choice agendas—not a cable network, or any person or people group.” I like this from the article, ““We’re not men who follow a purpose-driven life. We follow a Person-driven life. We let the Person of God take control of the purpose.” and this, “When you say ‘anti-gay,’ you’re saying anti-people because there are people who are gay,” Jason said.

“We’re pro-people,” David added, “because Jesus is pro-people.”

“One of the most critical lies permeating society is the redefinition of sin.” read more. No Backing Down: Benham Brothers’ Faith Firm After Losing HGTV Show

Have a good Sunday. GOD bless America and you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Conservatives and Christians.Now “Lets Roll”.

Happy New Year and as Paul wrote to Timothy, “Grace, mercy and peace from GOD the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS our LORD”!

2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version (NKJV) 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

I haven’t been social much last few days. Wanted to just take a step back, forget about the news and all the “Talking Points” for a little and the weather here has been so great just wanted to get out and enjoy GOD’s handiwork for awhile. I really enjoyed and related to this mornings devotional. Don’t read everyday but most days and when I do of course GOD speaks to my heart! Check it out

“SHOW AND TELL”

“I’m NOT one to wear my faith on my sleeve. Christians can do a disservice to unbelievers by being obnoxious or judgmental.

I’m a chapel leader and have been since my second year in the minors.

People know where I I’m coming from with out my having to harp on it all the time. I know that the message of CHRIST offends because it calls sin sin and says we are all sinners.

There’s no way to soften the truth. It’s jarring and can alienate people until they begin to realize that it’s true.

My pushing it down everyone’s throat will not make it any easier for them to investigate what it’s all about.

I just tell people about GOD naturally, when opportunities arise or when I’m asked. It’s amazing how many people notice when you’re straight.

If your not a carouser, not a womanizer, not foul-mouthed, not a gossip, it get’s around!

We’re far from perfect. We fail. There are people who may think we are insincere or who think we’re judgmental.

I can’t defend myself against people who say I’m phony. Only my family, my true friends and I know who I really am inside. I’ll have to answer for that someday.

I can only do and be what I think GOD want’s me to do and be. I never want to embarrass HIM or bring HIM shame.”

Author: Orel Hershiser

I can relate to this, it  just really speaks and encourages me and is how I feel. Remember GOD didn’t make us all pastor’s, evangelists so on. He made us all different, with different gifts and callings, our job is to be as faithful as we can to what HE’s called us to do and be.

As 2013 passes and 2014 begins there is a lot ahead of us. A couple of things I hope we all remember is what a few truly Conservative and bibles believing Christians did in 2013.

A handful of true Conservative with the backing of “The People” did some pretty amazing things if you think about and took a stand against “The Status Quo”, the establishment GOP and the Progressive movement that is dead set on the “Fundamental Chang of America” and the removal of GOD from our history, remembrance and country.

“The People” stood up, stood together and backed a man for his right to say in public the TRUTH of the bible. “The People” saw that it IS possible to take a stand against the progressive’s and the liberal GOD denying democrat party and the fewer then ( being generous here) 5% of the population that is hell bent on “The fundamental Change of America”.

2013 brought to light what a lot of Conservative had been warning about for years. The I.R.S scandal, Benghazi, the massive failure of the administrations foreign polices and more often then not siding with Americas enemy’s then her allies, N.S.A., election fraud the out right lying and miss guidance of the American people and of course Obamacare.

Let’s not forget the defining silence from this administration as Christian around the world are being purged from the earth and in this country being silenced and attacked by the very government it helped set up in the begging of this great country.

2014 is the year when we can start to take our country back. It will take years to fix what the Progressives and the most recently administration has done to this country but in 2014 we can start to finish what started in 2010 but has been paused because people believed the establishment GOP and the politicians that didn’t keep there promises to defend the Constitution and Conservative values.

“If we Christians banded together and took a stand, perhaps we wouldn’t be losing so much ground in what the media is calling the “cultural war.” However, it is not a cultural war—it is a religious war against Christians and the biblical truths we stand for. Some churches have fallen into the trap of being politically correct, under the disguise of tolerance.” Read more, Franklin Graham: Duck Dynasty and the Ducking Church

So, my hope and prayer for the new year is that people will remember, pray, stand together and start on the road to bring this country back to it’s former glory and the “Light on The Hill” status that set us apart from all others lead by GOD. There is a definite choice to be maid between the GOD denying Democrats led by the Progressive movement, the GOP establishment and RINO’s and the TRUE Conservatives and bible believing Americans with respect for all.

2 Timothy 1:7 New English Translation (NET) 7 “For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

GOD bless America and you.

Us solder should get all the help he needs.Let’s get out of Afghanistan.

For the Christian and non believer who might be curious.

I read this a few weeks ago in a devotional I sometimes read and it just really blessed and stuck with me. As I go through it again I still get blessed.

I was in one those valleys we all find ourselves in from time to time. Like always, HE’S there with us and brings us through it OK.

I thought it might helpful, encouraging to some and interesting to others, especially in the times we are living in.

It was a weekend reading.

“Recognize”

“Everyone that comes to know JESUS stumbles because of him. He fails to meet our wrong expectations.

HE calls us to do impossible things or to become something we think we could never become. This is HIS way of teaching us how much we need HIM.

HE breaks us into pieces so that HE can put us back together again in HIS image.”

Michael Card.

“Renew”

“The rule is this: Christians are people who remember their own weakness and failures.

They are under reconstruction. So they offer hope and forgiveness to people who fall and who need grace and hope”.

-Donald M. Joy

Saturday: 1Corinthians 1:20-31 Sunday: 2 Corinthians 4:1-12

Before reading  Corinthians 1:20-31 all good Christians know they should read it in context. 1 Corinthians 1

1 Corinthians 1:20-31

New International Version (NIV)

20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”[a]

Think about all the supposed “Wise” people. Especially in the times we are living in, this government, this administration. They sure think they are wise,( and have no problem telling us we are not, that they know better) but to me looks a lot like GOD is making them look pretty foolish.

Context: 2 Corinthians 4

2 Corinthians 4:1-12

We all know that when you see a “Therefore” we need to see what it’s therefore to make sure we are getting the full context. 2 Corinthians 3

New International Version (NIV)

Present Weakness and Resurrection Life

4 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

Ever wonder why it seems everyone is so blind as to what’s going on in our country, let alone the world?

4 “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

For the unbeliever that might be checking this out. If you don’t know who “The god of this age is” you might want to start checking out the bible and ask GOD to open it up to you.

I love this and it was a good reminder and comfort. 8 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

Never forget it Christian!

Here’s a good one to keep in mind I just came across. Check it out: The Mind of Christ

Enjoy the rest of you’re weekend. GOD bless America and you!
