Independence Day 2016

As  America celebrated Independence Day 2016, the two hundredth year of her independence, her people stood at a Crossroad that will define the future of America; the America that has been the envy of peoples and nations throughout the known world, will either be blessed based upon her repentance and returned to God or condemned because of her denial of God and her choice to live as slaves to idols of immorality, worldliness, greed and corruption. My question is, “Which road (Crossroad or Path) will America and her people choose?”

The Crossroad is not whether or not Hillary or Donald wins this coming Presidential election. In reality, it really will not matter which one wins as the “die has been cast;” America’s government and her people have strayed from her founders’ ideals as later expressed by Abraham Lincoln, “A government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Our great nation and its people have chosen to walk in the humanistic desires of wanton pleasure “doing what each desires in their own hearts.” America and her people have denied the Creator God, and the survival of America’s representative democracy hangs in the balance.

The future for the world, however, has already been laid out in the prophecies found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Jesus Christ at His Second Coming will rule the earth with a “rod of iron.” The evil that we presently know will no longer exist, and there will no longer be Democratic, Republican or Libertarian political parties of self-interest.

Those of us of who lived (my opinion) through the “best of times,” the 1940’s and 1950’s, were fortunate to learn the truth of America’s founding history and to have studied the writings found in America’s founding documents. Sadly, this generational group is slowly fading away. It is unfortunate that those who lived during this period, I include myself, allowed through their silence, the years to pass without passing the torch of liberty and freedom to their children and grandchildren. But, it is still not too late to begin teach our families the true values of a Godly America; but that teaching must begin today. Why not start today by reading The Declaration of Independence.

America was founded as a Christian Nation—a Nation of morality, integrity, public prayer and a belief in the Creator God of the Bible. The liberal progressive left would have you to believe otherwise. Read for yourself the Godly inscriptions that can still be found written on / in the buildings and monuments in our Nation’s capital, before those who are trying to transform America’s Republic into a godless, secular, humanistic governmental “system” with a common pigsty trough from which all will feed to erase them. The America I knew is gone—gone forever unless spiritual repentance comes!

Yes, I personally believe it is too late for repentance from America’s current plight of immorality, godlessness, greed, sexual and materialistic lust, Executive, Legislative and Judicial corruption (How can those who hold elected positions in public office claim Christianity and remain silent to all that has gone on in the public and private arenas?), apostate houses of religion, human sacrifice in the abortion mills and a judicial ruling that marriage can be other than between one man and one woman. There is no doubt that there are others that could be listed, but I will stop as I am beginning to become angry (that would be righteous anger) and cry out the line, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore,” from an old 1976 film entitled, NETWORK, staring Howard Beale; visit, http://en.m.wikiquote.org for more information.

So here we are at The Crossroad that I would like for all to understand; It is time for those who are professing Christians to step outside their “institutions of faith” and tell others of the Hope in which they live? This is America’s only hope for a future of liberty and true justice for all. But first, to step out you need to know your real standing in Christ Jesus? Consider the following questions:

  1.  Are you truly saved and know it?

2.   Do you profess salvation but in your heart are not sure?

3.   Do you think you are saved but have no proof?

If God’s elect—those who are indwelled by His Holy Spirit, read and meditate upon His Word (the Bible), pray and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit—will escape from their closets of silence, God may listen and change the hearts of America and in turn, America’s future. Otherwise, there is no future for America and her people. By the way, question number 1, above, was the answer that was sought.

The God of the bible only listens to the voice of His sheep (His Bride, the Church). His gift of salvation is free and was paid for by the blood of His Son, Jesus. There are no works that you need to do to earn salvation. It is a gift.

If you are of another religion, you should continue to worship your god and do the things he or she commands of you, unless of course, the God of the Bible calls you to Him.

My words are given in LOVE. As the saying goes, “Love the sinner but hate the sin.” After all, we were all born with the humanistic sin nature. Only by being born again—spiritual rebirth—can you find the newness of life and no longer be a captive to the sins of the flesh.

Before you past judgment on me please consider the following: I am not anyone’s judge nor is this Blog an attempt to discredit you or your religion. I consider the contents of my writings and myself to be non-judgmental.  I do not discriminate nor do I believe or condone any acts of discrimination against any person no matter what race, sex, color, national origin, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, Veteran status or any other status or condition protected by law.

While my policy statement reflects my non-discriminatory ethical belief, I do believe I should be allowed to exercise my freedom to speak and my freedom of religion (Biblical Christianity) without prejudicial judgment, just as I believe you also should be allowed the same freedom. I just want to tell you about Jesus, and the love He alone can give to you if you will only come to Him as He calls.

America must turn in true repentance to her Judeo-Christian heritage and belief in the Creator God of the Bible, or face the future of God’s wrath. That is the Crossroad where I believe America presently stands. Which road will America travel, and which road will you be on?

Those are my comments for today. I would love to hear from you. Please comment.

I am not a proponent of today’s secular, humanistic Politically Correctness doctrine, I do not believe in the COEXIST bumper sticker that pacifists whiners place on their cars and their view that we should all “just get along,” nor do I believe in the “Global Community Socialist / Communist” doctrines, “Diversity Quotas,” “Social Justice retributions,” “Participation Trophies,” “Darwinian Evolution,” liberal judges with their own agendas, and too many other doctrines and agendas of the extreme progressive liberal left and elitist proponents of the Godless Democratic Party that are not in keeping with America’s Constitution and Bill of Rights.
