“Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments and His ordinances and His statutes which I am commanding you today; otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them, and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.  He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint. In the wilderness He fed you manna which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end.  Otherwise, you may say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth.’  “But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.  It shall come about if you ever forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you today that you will surely perish.  Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so you shall perish; because you would not listen to the voice of the Lord your God.”  (emphasis added)    Deuteronomy 8:11-20


America was founded upon the Bible and Christianity and she has been blessed more than any nation on earth, BUT if we allow the atheists/liberals to remove God from the public life of this nation and replace Him with atheism, Socialism and every form of sexual perversion then what happened to Israel will also happen to us. He is very patient but His patience runs out at a point and His judgment comes suddenly. Those who love and honor God in their lives have the duty and responsibility to defend our godly heritage and to do all to restore the foundations laid down by our founders. PS: Our founders were not Deists or atheists; they were predominantly Christians who lived out biblical values and truths. It is time to turn America back to her God once again. This must begin in the local churches across this land. It is time for preachers to stop tickling the ears of people and begin to teach the whole Bible not just the Feel Good passages. Sin, hell, judgment, accountability, obedience to God’s word and removing sin from our lives and nation are rarely if ever spoken today from America’s pulpits. Heaven forbid that many pastors would ever mention abortion, homosexuality or immorality in general from their pulpits, it might OFFEND someone. Sin is offensive to God and should be to us who claim His name as well. If sinners are not told of their sin then how are they ever to see its devastating consequences on their lives and eternity? Pastors MUST preach the whole Bible, not just bits and pieces.
 
“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 7:13-14This formula has saved America in past disasters and it will work again today. Pastors need NOW to put these verses into practice in their own lives and then in their congregations. Compromise with sin and avoiding certain areas of the Bible in their sermons has gotten the church in the mess that it is in and the nation also.  As goes the church so goes the nation. The church is the thermostat of the nation. When the preachers and the church grow cold then the nation follows suit and falls into gross sins as we see in America today. “If we don’t stand for something then we will fall for anything.”

Rev. G. Campbell Morgan, of many years ago, made the statement, “The task of the church is NOT to catch the spirit of the age, it is to CORRECT it!”

This is the task of today’s Christian pastors across America. It is time for the pulpits of America to once again be aflame with righteousness. America’s only hope lies in her churches and if the pastors do not rise to the occasion and right now, then we will see the beloved nation that we have known go down the tubes rapidly. God will allow this to happen if His people who are called by His name do not follow His clear commands. It is time for ALL pastors and teachers to stand up for truth and stop the wimpy, cotton candy sermons of today. A good place to be reminded of what God expects from his preachers is to read Ezekiel chapters 33-34. If that doesn’t wake you up then you might question whether you are spiritually alive at all! It really helps to have your pastor born again doesn’t it?

Rep. Laura Richardson, D-Calif., was impressed that Castro knew her name and her district. “He looked right into my eyes,” she gushed, “and he said, ‘How can we help you? How can we help President Obama?’”                             Source: Townhall.com

Now, let me get this straight: Castro offered these members of the dream world Socialist state help doing what? Didn’t they see the devastation that Communism has wreaked on Cuba or were they on the “elite tour” of the banana republic?

I was on one of these tours in Communist China once. I was with a group of missionaries and we were visiting the ‘Official State Church’ of Red Chinas. This is the ‘authorized’ church which has Communist agents sitting in the back of the church during the preaching so as to make sure that the preacher sticks to the manuscript that he had to submit to the Commies for review earlier in the week. If he deviates fromt the ‘approved’ sermon text, they will immediately arrest him. This is the ‘authorized’ church in China. Turns out that the ‘tour guide’ was a Commie in disguise. He sang the praises of what China is like ‘now’ and how free the people are who live there. I have never been one to keep my mouth shut so I began to ask him carefully worded questions to challenge his statements. He had told us that the people could now buy their own homes, but his statement begged to be probed deeper. I asked him if when the people died if they passed the house on to their children. He tried to sidestep the question but said ultimately that the house went back to the government, not to the family left behind. Now, this simply means that the people are making payments on a house that the government owns and never really was theirs.

The one child banners were also up to remind the Chinese people that they could only have one child and if they tried for two they would force an abortion or if the child was born without their knowledge then the child would be put up for adoption.

This is freedom in Communist/Socialist states like China, North Korea, Cuba and many other such states. How can this group of congress persons visit such a place and not see the slavery to the government? It is like a group of evolutionary scientists who visited the site here in Texas where there are dinosaur and human tracks in the same strata. When asked what they thought of the evidence they said, “We saw no evidence of such a thing.” The problem was that as they walked about the site they literally looked up the whole time and refused to even look at the evidence right beneath their feet.

This has to be the case with this delegation. Castro wants to help them/us alright. They have been wanting to help us for a long time to become like them. If you ask the average Cuban citizen how they like living in Paradise they will tell you that they would rather risk floating across the ninety mile, shark infested waters to get to America than to live in such a ‘paradise’ as they have in Cuba.

America is a Republic, not a Democracy and as such we are ruled by the rule of law not the whims of a few left leaning Marxists in congress. It is time for Americans who love our freedoms to wake up and put these folks out of office and maybe even send them to live in Cuba or North Korea or Russia or China or or or or…  A few years of actually living in ‘Paradise’ might serve to restore them to what our founding fathers had in mind for us in the beginning.

There are too many freedom loving Americans to allow Socialism to take root, right???? I truly hope so my dear friends! I truly hope so!
