I am thrilled that the marriage amendment passed in California, Arizona and Florida, but I am especially troubled by the percentage of Californians who voted against Prop 8. Are there really that many godless people in the Golden State? I lived in California for forty years and love the state and her people. I cannot believe that 48% voted to allow two men or two women to call what they do marriage. How did so many get so confused? I know that millions of Californians are Christians, Jews and other moral people. How many of you who claim to honor God voted against this proposition? How many Christians could vote against what the Bible clearly defines as an abomination in the eyes of God? The sin is the target, not the people. Those who live the homosexual lifestyle are blinded to the health risks and especially the spiritual consequences of their choice. NO research has ever proven that gays are genetically different from heterosexuals. To support homosexuality is also supporting heterosexual immorality. How many pastors in California bothered to preach messages to their congregations about what the Bible says about this issue? Many men stood tall in their pulpits and taught the Word of God boldly, while others just preached ‘feel good’ sermons to tickle the ears of those who show up on Sundays. God is upset with irresponsible and self-centered shepherds, as the following passage tells us.

“Then the word of the Lord came to me saying,  ‘Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to those shepherds, “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock?  You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock.  Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them.  They were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and they became food for every beast of the field and were scattered.  My flock wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill; My flock was scattered over all the surface of the earth, and there was no one to search or seek for them.’ ” Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:  “As I live,” declares the Lord God, “surely because My flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for My flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock; therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will demand My sheep from them and make them cease from feeding sheep. So the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore, but I will deliver My flock from their mouth, so that they will not be food for them.’ ”  For thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.  As a shepherd cares for his herd in the day when he is among his scattered sheep, so I will care for My sheep and will deliver them from all the places to which they were scattered on a cloudy and gloomy day.  I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries and bring them to their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the streams, and in all the inhabited places of the land.  I will feed them in a good pasture, and their grazing ground will be on the mountain heights of Israel. There they will lie down on good grazing ground and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel.  I will feed My flock and I will lead them to rest,” declares the Lord God.  “I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick; but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with judgment.”  Ezekiel 34:1-16

Dr. D. James Kennedy preached one of his most powerful messages about the 400,000 pulpits of America and that 300,000 of them are silent on moral issues of the day. How sad, when the intended purpose of the Christian church is being largely ignored. Conviction comes before salvation. Without this there is no salvation. We must know why we need a savior in order to recognize our need for one. Sin is our problem, Jesus is our solution.

All is not lost to the extremists in our nation. God is still on His throne and He is waiting for His people to get right with Him and then He will act on our nation’s ills.

“Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, ‘I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  2 Chronicles 7:12-14

Repentance is ground zero for believers who want to see America restored to her godly foundations. So, what will you do with God’s words? Will the pastors, preachers and people of God choose obedience to God’s word or will they choose the ways of the world?

Dear friends,

This article is long and comes from a heart that is broken for this once great nation. Far too many are caving in to lies spun by a media who no longer cares to report the truth. God has put this article on my soul like a flame and I am trying to be faithful to pass on what He has impressed on my heart. I write this out of a heart of love for humanity and our nation. I pray for the ones I write about and genuinely love them. I find that I can no longer tolerate what they are trying to do. Ike

 

I would like to challenge all Christians, Jews and all moral and decent citizens of America to stop and think before you vote for Obama or any other liberal politicians on Tuesday. The long list of outright lies to illegal associations is staggering to my mind. How can this man, and many of his fellow liberals, with all these strikes against them, gain the votes of anyone who honors the God of the Bible?Obama voted four times in the Illinois legislature not to protect babies who were born alive after a botched abortion. In other words, he voted to protect the right for the ‘doctor’ (butcher) to let these babies just die outside the womb, yet he has the gall to call for universal health care for all citizens. He has voted consistently against banning partial birth abortion and says that he will reinstate this gruesome procedure if elected president. 50,000,000 innocent babies have been murdered in America since Roe v. Wade was passed, by the Supreme Court, in 1973, all in the name of sexual freedom without responsibility. What of the freedom of these babies? Doesn’t the baby have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness like the rest of us? We give citizenship to babies born to illegal aliens, but for those who should have the benefits of citizenship, they are murdered before they breathe their first breath of American air. What if Obama, Clinton and other supporters of abortion had been aborted themselves? What if your mother and mine had done so? We love being alive and so do the unborn. They retreat when the butcher’s blade comes to kill them in the womb and they suffer immense pain. This has been proven by research! These citizens are literally pulled from the mother’s womb in PIECES!

Obama has also consistently voted to push homosexuality into the faces of those who oppose this behavior and into our public schools. They have the guts to call this a civil rights issue. This should be a huge slap in the face to all black Americans! What does sexual preference have in common with what black Americans went through to be set free from slavery? I hope that black Americans will remember which party it was who fought to set them free, the Republicans. Democrats fought to keep slavery legal.

Godless judges have overruled the people of California and made sexual perversion a legal right and call it marriage. For all of history, marriage has been between a man and a woman. God commands us to love all people, and I do enough to write this strong piece, but He never commanded us to accept sin as normal. Obama has said that he would immediately push for the bill to force all employers to hire homosexuals regardless of what they personally believe on this issue. What happens to the freedom to choose for the employer, landlord, merchant or restaurant owners? The freedom of the gay person overrides the personal freedom of the one who says no to them. Is this what the freedom of speech and association is about? My rights only extend to the end of the other person’s nose and no further! Political Correctness needs to be banned from public life once and for all! It is destroying this wonderful nation. It is nothing more than a license to manipulate people into submitting to an evil agenda. We are on the verge of making America a Socialist nation. Does this even matter to you? I pray that it does!

I cannot for the life of me understand how professing Christians and other God fearing people can believe that homosexuality and abortion are acceptable to God! They are an abomination to Him, so is having sex outside the bonds of marriage of all heterosexuals. Many churches today are not only accepting these sinful behaviors in their churches, but many are ordaining them to the priesthood and condoning abortion. THIS ACTIVITY IS NOTHING SHORT OF BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD! How can mankind condone what God has condemned? I lay this insanity right at the feet of many preachers and pastors who refuse to teach on these issues from the pulpits of America because it might OFFEND someone. They had better learn to offend people with the truth or they will find themselves sending people into Hell. Most preachers today, but not all, have only one string to play from the pulpits today, that of the ‘feel good’ passages. They refuse to teach the whole Bible but pick out only the passages that would make people feel good about their sins. Conviction of sin is very uncomfortable. This is why God created mankind with a conscience. We naturally feel badly when we hurt others, lie to them or steal their stuff. We are not mindless robots, we are intelligent people. They are telling sinners that there is nothing to worry about.Don’t worry be happy is their theme song and they sing it every Sunday. Sin and sinners will be judged by God according to HIS standard, the Bible, not by what sinful people try to tell us. All forms of sexual perversion, murder and anything that God has forbidden, will receive God’s wrath in the judgment, after people have died, not a second chance to believe or a suspended sentence. All sinners will reap what they sow.

“But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:3-6

America has become the supplier of sleaze to the rest of the world and I believe that America is getting close to being judged for our blatant disregard for God’s commands. America has become obsessed with sex and sexual perversion. Even the miniseries ‘John Adams’, on DVD, which is rated TV-14, had a full frontal nude scene not more than thirty minutes into the movie, which we promptly turned off. Who in their right mind could conceive of a need for nudity in a historical documentary but the twisted souls of Hollywood? America was founded on the Bible, not perversion! God will not put up with this much longer. It is no accident that the porn industry has endorsed Obama and previously Bill and Hillary Clinton. The head of the industry proclaimed that the Clinton years provided them the most freedom that they have ever experienced. The Greek word for evil is porneia from which we get the word pornography. Perversion has made children the target for sexually twisted humans here and around the world. Kidnapping children to rape and murder them is far too common and keeping these children in ‘sex for pay rings,’ by the most perverse people in the world, is infuriating to God and should infuriate His people. The homosexuals lobby congress constantly to lower the age of consent so that they can molest them and not face any consequences for destroying the lives of the most innocent of our society. America is sex crazed and this must change and soon. When will real Christians, Jews and all moral and decent people stand up to this evil and demand life sentences for ALL who molest the under aged? Planned Parenthood (which should be called Planned NON-parenthood since no baby survives their evil hands) has deliberately shielded the adult molesters who get young girls pregnant. This is totally illegal and yet they refuse to turn these vile men over to the law. Planned Parenthood gets $300,000,000 a year from our tax dollars to murder the innocent and they made one billion dollars last year from murdering babies,  and Obama would continue to push for their support as he does today. They have contributed to his campaign and have endorsed him for president. Why do they need taxpayer support to do this?

 


A word to the wise for all reading this. The Bible tells us that a person will be judged by the fruit that comes from their life, NOT what they profess with their mouths. I have taught the Bible for almost thirty-four years now and can with authority tell you that I have examined the fruit of Obama and he comes up with a crop failure for his professed Christianity. The list is long where he directly opposes everything that God says and has followed his own agenda over and over. There is no doubt in my mind that he is NOT a Christian. Far too many Christians and other moral people have believed what he says instead of looking at the actual fruit of his life. NO Christian could vote to let babies die by the hand of an abortion butcher! NO Christian could support the homosexual lifestyle or heterosexual immorality and oppose God’s direct commands. NO Christian can live a secret life with his Muslim friends and in public say that he will support the Jewish people and Israel. LA Times, prove us wrong by releasing the video that you have under wraps! The Bible tells us that ALL liars will be thrown into the Lake of Fire/Hell.”Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”  1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB

“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”  Revelation 21:8 NASB

I feel like the voice of one crying out in the wilderness because so few seem to give a rip about this topic. Few, it seems, are willing to tell the whole truth. God is real, He will judge all sinners and He will also forgive any sinner IF they will turn from their sins (repentance) and make Jesus Christ the Lord of their life and seek to obey Him and serve Him. Too many will find this out too late and will find themselves condemned before a Holy God. This will truly be the most horrific thing that can happen to any human being. As long as you are breathing there is still hope. Let go of what sinful mankind has deceived you into believing and turn to God who alone can set all of you free. He did it for me a long time ago and He will also do it for you. This is an absolute fact!

So, when you step into the voting booth on Tuesday, who are you going to believe, God or sinful man? What you answer to this question will determine how you vote. The very future of this nation is in your hands. Think long and hard about this decision, and may you let God tell you what to do.

Thank you for hearing me out. This is as serious as a heart attack!
