It should seem obvious to even the casual observer that homosexuality appears to be on the increase in America, both in numerical growth and acceptance.

My Dad was a pastor of a number of churches, and he was a missionary in the USA, Africa, England, and Ireland. From the day my memory of my childhood first kicks in, I recall Dad making sarcastic and biting references to men who climbed into the seat of power in Christendom.
I have been in the company of high toned doctors, scholars, "students of the Greek", fathers, monsignors, bishops, presidents, moderators, chairmen, reverends, the VERY reverends, world evangelists, "America's pastor", field directors, general directors, general secretaries, great pillars of the faith, mighty men, keynote speakers, directors, on and on ad nauseoum. I have yet to have the privilege of being in the company of a Pope, though I have known preachers who behaved like Popes.
They are ALL piled above, not below, the New Testament leadership: elders, deacons, apostles, teachers, evangelists, and pastors. These late great inventions are all an abomination. These men prey on the true leaders in the Lord's Church and demand that these valid church leaders exalt these Nicolaitans in order to keep their place in the order of the peck.
Most of you popelette preachers are exalting some jerk on high in violation of biblical truth, and the reason is terror-- terror that you will be rejected by the high tulimuck's cake walk above. Your résumé be damned. Who gave you permission to flatter men of any status anyway? God hates flattery.
Here is what the only real friend of Job, Eliab, said,
"Job 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man."
Eliab also said, "Job 32:9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment." Now, that is a young man whom I would be delighted to have as a friend and advisor.
And David said,
"Psalms 5:9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue."
Consider THAT the next time you are called upon to give the windy introduction of the "Keynote Speaker" at the plenary session of your denomination. Flattery is ALWAYS of the devil.
So, I now intend to do as much damage to the political rats who rule the Lord's Church as I possibly can. For the record, I am not mad because I was passed up long ago. I have been offered power on high. I hated it then, and I hate it now.
Mark 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
40 Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
The Scribes and Pharisees craved one thing, and that is what they craved from one another. Men who take power over people crave that other people around them will surrender their allegiance to them. The Pharisees in particular wanted Jesus to join the club and surrender to their elite guild of micro-managing Israeli people in every detail of their daily lives. Men in power all crave submission of some other men to themselves.
When a pastor teaches "pastoral rule" as the New Testament model of leadership, he is a precise carbon copy of the Pharisees in Jesus' day. The doctrine of pastoral rule is not found in the New Testament. The Head of the Church, whether universal or local, is Jesus. The Pope hates this, and he craves power over the masses in the Catholic Church. Modern popes have gone beyond this and tried to unite all religions under their power through ecumenical gatherings, and modern popes try to capture world leaders who will submit to the Pope's edicts on various social and political issues.
So, if you are one of these pastors who crave absolute rule over the people in your local church, when I learn this, I will do everything in my power to destroy you and your power base. I hate your religion, which is the religion of self-exaltation.
Finally, this spirit of craving power over people is the driving force of all political inventions. Even democracy, which is ostensibly based on the people choosing their leaders, is ALWAYS corrupted by men who connive and campaign to win the confidence of the masses so that they will exalt them to the top. From there, they manage the masses with favors and powerful speeches to keep the masses from finding another man to exalt. When this creeps into the Lord's Church, the results are total destruction to the local church, Bible college, or missionary organization, whatever entity in Christendom which you can imagine.
There is no better example before us than President Donald Trump. In his campaign, he pushed the button of millions of Americans who felt they had been thrown under the bus and made the enemy by Liberals, the media, and the political correctness mob. Trump's speeches were incendiary and designed to light fires and reward rage in the hearts of the hearer. Once elected, President Trump has mastered the art of keeping his base loyal. He has done this by putting people back to work and bringing American businesses home from around the world. But, more than the favors he has done, Trump has kept his base, and that may include you, loyal by his raging and hate filled Twitter posts. He has rewarded Americans for hating Liberals, and so his base keeps worshipping him. And, it is worship, whether you agree of not. There are many people calling Trump God's man, God's anointed, and even hinting that he is the Messiah, or at least a harbinger of the Messiah. The mob he rules have totally forgotten that this is the man who tells us to win the ladies over by grabbing them by the private parts. Never mind, God can forgive anyone, so God has to forgive Trump, even though Trump has openly rejected confession of sin as a Christian virtue. Here is the video of Trump rejecting confession of sin. Trump's pastor, Norman Vincent Peale, was a 33rd Degree Freemason, and he too rejected sin as a biblical issue.
To whatever degree you have pledged loyalty to Donald Trump, that is the degree to which you have cursed Jesus Christ. Donald Trump has shown no spiritual fruit unto righteousness. Don't get me wrong, there have been nearly no Presidents in American history who gave convincing evidence that they were born again. But, the tolerance of the vanity, pride, and arrogance of Trump by some of you is clear evidence that most American Christians are not truly born again and refuse the examine men by the measure if Jesus Christ.
Let me remind you of the story of Pandora.
In an ancient Greek fable or the gods, Pandora was the invention of the gods and was the first female human. She had a box which she eventually opened, and out of it came all the evils known to humanity. This was not the day of political correctness, and women were blamed for most of the troubles of humanity.
One of those evils was the aspiration humans have to climb above one another in power and wealth. This is easily seen in the world around us, and it is the reason Democracy is the worst form of human government. You see, if you have a king, no one can climb above him. He is absolute ruler, and there is no discussion about it. A king does not have to campaign for his office, he inherits it because he was born into the right family. There is no need for a "balance of power." The king decides everything, and there are no political battles. For you who are now about to vomit at my thoughts, tell me, are you really looking forward to the reign of Messiah in Jerusalem in the near future. Under his reign, there will be NO democracy, no voting, and no political parties.
On the other hand, democracy lets every beggar in society become a mighty power equal to all his neighbors. He may be a lush and refuse to work to provide for his own, but he is CO-regent through the voting box. Eventually, when the majority of voters are lushes and crave to legislate the wealth of the prosperous working man into the hands of losers, the democracy will crash.
The wicked end of this, in the western world where Christianity has prevailed for 2000 years, is that all churches, from the smallest group meeting in a store front, to the Vatican, make democracy the method used to exalt its leaders into power. There was NO democracy in the New Testament Church. But now, we live in a world of intrigue in Christendom where men move and shake around the world seeking attention, interviews, consultations, and finally great power. And, "we the people" in the pew are convinced it is of God because they get to vote on it, and all men love to think that God is helping them vote. This is why, after voting on some agenda item in a local church business meeting, the pastor asks one of the leading men to pray and ask God to bless the results of their exercise on their man-based democracy. This way, if things don't turn out like the majority expected, they can blame God and claim that he lead them to vote for the thing. What blasphemy.
VERY few men in the Lord's Church resist the rush of power. It borders on sensual, and I am sure I have known men who got the same rush from being exalted by church house idiots that they got from a sexy lady walking into the foyer. I have even seen both in the same event when the "Keynote Speaker" came to the pulpit right after the sexy ladies' quartet sang, and he made suggestive comments about them. For the record, he was a Baptist, a King James only Fundamental Baptist. That was the day I walked away from Fundamentalism emotionally.
Testosterone is not left at the door in Baptist and Charismatic churches. Also, the evidence of lust would not be so easily hidden by the Roman Catholic "fathers" if they dressed in street clothes like the rest of us. And, I must add, that the higher up the pyramid a tin horned leader rises, the safer he is when he hustles. The Roman Catholic Church is under siege for it's pedophile priests, and even a couple of bishops. But, you will never hear the media news people call for an investigation of the Pope's sexual excuses. He is immune. How handy!
Do you really want to finish this article? I am on a roll, my friend, and I do not give a fig where the rounds land. I am at war.
So, the evil which escaped from Pandora's box, which is actually the most virulent manifestation of human wickedness, is the lust to take a place of rulership above the masses and the peons. This is, without exception, the most destructive force in human society. It is the reason wars are waged. It is the reason well placed men throw away two wives in order to keep a porn queen on their arm to wow the voters. And, tell me, my pious friend..... do you like the First Lady more as the President's wife or as a porn queen?
So, how did the Lord's Church come to have its nauseous pyramids of power. Virtually all organized churches have some offices of power that cannot be found in the New Testament church, that is, in the New Testament of the Bible. Leaders and theologians all find a way to justify them, and no organized church or denomination has EVER rejected the order of the peck. Martin Luther tried, and then he became the guru-like lord of the Lutheran denomination. There was NO Reformation as to church government, and this one thing guaranteed that the Reformed denominations would one day come to their place in the Slough of Despond. They lust for the top of the hierarchy. If you don't believe me, got attend a coffee call at Calvin Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan some time. Watch the climbers massaging one another's egos.
There is no substitute for openly exposing these creeps and the power pyramid which claims its heritage in Jesus Christ. Like Pandora in the graphic, you cannot put the evil back. So, tell the world about it so others will not join the party spirit and the political slop hog circus.
3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.
11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
There is another saying from old England-- "Who let the cat out of the bag?"
Long ago in England people went to market to sell and barter their produce and farm animals. The method of carrying a young pig to market was to put it in a poke, a gunny sack. This is where we get the expression, "a pig in a poke." Dishonest people would grab a cat from the neighborhood and put it in a poke sack and offer it at the market as a young pig. If you were gullible enough to buy the pig without looking into the sack first, you were said to have bought a, "Pig in a poke."
So, if someone nearby knew the scam and wished to expose the deceitful trick he would, "Let the cat out of the bag."
YOU are the only one who will let the cat out of the bag. Like Pandora, Adam and Eve let the evil out of the box long ago, and it is impossible to put evil back where it came from. It is enshrined in the human heart at birth. So, do us all a service-- expose those who feast on their ego-- Mark them which cause divisions and offenses.
Church potentates and high muckety mucks will never expose themselves. It is always someone who rejects the political system who is the most likely to expose it. If you are last in the order of the peck, what do you have to lose by being a whistle blower?
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Isaiah 57:14 And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.
So, you want to serve God, do you? Well, here is the will of God for you as you look at the pyramid of self-exalting church leaders:
Ezekiel 21:27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.
Go see if you can overturn one of these creeps. One final warning though..... NEVER pull down a pastor, evangelist, teacher, an elder, or a deacon unless they are doing violence to the Lord's Church and the Word of God.
In the Bible text above in 3 John you read how the Apostle John took charge of a political insurrection from the pew in which Diotrephes tried to make himself lord and savior of the church which was meeting in the home of Gaius. No further insurrection in the Church is reported, that I know of, until about 300 AD when Constantine handed power to the Catholic Church in Rome.
Constantine was the last Caesar of the Roman Empire. He inherited a real mess, and he cleverly managed to make it worse. Finally, Rome had lost almost all of its empire, and the Barbarians were just north of Rome trying to reach Rome where they hoped to kill the Romans and pillage their wealth. It is reported in historic records that Constantine, though he hated Christians, realized that they were the only sane force left at his disposal, but only IF he could convince them to help him.
Like politicians in all of modern history, the state went to the church to recruit them for national deliverance. Well, the Catholic Church in Rome saw a great opportunity to rule the world, and they convinced Constantine to give the Roman Empire to the Church in what was called "The Donations of Constantine." It was probably the largest offering ever given to any church in history.
And, the Pope and his bishops said, "Constantine is going to make Rome great again."
Indeed, "God sent Constantine to save Rome from disaster." This God did in spite of, not because of, the personal life of Constantine.
Well, the priests of the new Holy Roman Empire went to work and composed a message from God to the Barbarian Chieftain in which they claimed that God flattered the Barbarian Chief and was talking to him personally. They delivered the letter to him, and when he read it he became convinced that it was a letter from God designating him a great deliverer of the Roman Empire. He was suckered in, and he at once called off the invasion and declared himself a faithful disciple of this new God.
Does that sound anything like Donald Trump and Paula White and Kenneth Copeland?
HERE ARE THE RELIGIOUS GURUS OF AMERICA DEMANDING THAT GOD BLESS TRUMP
Trump even got some of the Shakhina in Hebrew. That must be solid gold.
THE DONATIONS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON
The first political church in America was when Thomas Jefferson held church services in the Rotunda of the US Capitol Building. His intentions were good, but the precedent was not biblical. The Lord's Church started out, in the days of the Apostles, meeting in homes, and that is the ideal place for a group of Bible believers to meet and BE the Church. Jefferson's intentions were not to start a state church, like the Pope and the Reformers had done in Europe. He simply thought the idea would be good form in honoring the deity of himself and other Americans. But, good intentions to not make good doctrine.
The Apostle Paul preached the Gospel in the market place, the temple of the Jews, and to kings and rulers. But, Paul founded the Church of Jesus Christ in the homes of the believers, and it stayed there until the church at Ephesus built a church house about fifty years after the last Apostle John died. And, the church in Ephesus at once died spiritually and disappeared, just as Christ warned them would happen if they did not get back their first love.
The meetings in Jefferson's day, in the Capitol building, were bringing the church into the hall of Caesar. The end of this politicized church is that church members become drunk on democracy. They soon dilute the authority of the Word of God with the US Constitution, and I know Christians who would probably give up their Bible before they would give up their Second Amendment rights. This pattern of corruption keeps these political Christians lusting for more democracy in church affairs, and many a church is busted wide open and destroyed as democracy plays itself out in rancorous business meetings and virtual campaigning for office. I have seen men campaign in the church, and I have seen men campaign on the missionfield in order to be exalted to leadership on the "Field Council." There is absolutely nothing more revolting than to overhear some man telling a member what he will do if he is elected in the next church election.
God hates democracy, and you need to believe that before it poisons your soul.
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had a dream one night. He sent for Daniel to interpret the dream for him, and God gave Daniel the interpretation. The dream was a primer on all the empires that would dominate the world scene in the future. Babylon was the first empire, and it was represented as made of gold. Nebuchadnezzar was an absolute ruler as king, and he could make any law, and he could break any law himself, and he could revoke any law.
The next empire was the Medo-Persian empire, and it was still a monarchy, but it was lowered in value as made of silver. The king of the Medes could make any law, but he could not then break that law, and he could never revoke it. The power of government was no longer absolute.
The next empire was the Greek empire. It was made of brass which is not a precious medal. Greece was the first world empire based on democracy. Laws were initiated by councils, and the ordinary people voted on the laws and approved of rejected them. Power was taken away from men at the top and given to the citizens. God's view of this sort of government was that it was cheap, as brass. The only redeeming quality of the Greeks was that the leaders were sensitive to the masses.
The next empire was the Roman empire, and it was made of iron. It had two legs which represented the eastern and western areas of the Roman empire. This empire is made of iron, which, in the Bible, is symbolic of brutality and war. Rome was a perpetually warring empire. Power was still given to the people in democracy, but the rulers became evil, immoral, and perverted. The Caesars were deeply corrupt, and they tinkered with the Roman democracy and found ways to prevent the voting masses from exerting their will on the leaders.
The last empire comes into existence at the end of the Church Age. During the Church Age God did not comment, and the whole world slowly drifted from kings, chiefs, dictators, and thugs to democracy. The final democracy is the restoration of the Roman empire in Europe. It is the most corrupted form of democracy ever existing in history. The people are said to be free and can vote, but the rulers have totally corrupted and compromised any decent principles of democracy. This last empire, the European Union, is made of iron and clay. Power is used to subject and torment the masses, as we see before our eyes.
The final part of the dream of Nebuchadnezzar was to see a Stone, carved out of the mountain, which came down and struck the image in the feet, and it was totally destroyed. Prophetically, that Stone is Christ, and the next empire the Bible tells about is the Messianic Kingdom of Christ. THERE WILL BE NO DEMOCRACY DURING CHRIST'S KINGDOM. There will be no Senate or House of Representatives, and no one will vote on anything. The Bible tells us that Christ will, as Nebuchadnezzar long ago, be an absolute monarch. He will make laws, he will be free to break those laws, and he will revoke laws, and no one will debate a bit of it. The rule of Christ will trickle down from his throne in Jerusalem to be administered by his hand chosen appointees. These associates of the Messiah will enforce his laws with absolute authority.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
These are the saints of Christ from the Church Age, along with those who believed the Gospel during the Great Tribulation. They will enforce the rule of Messiah for a thousand years, and no one will be asked his opinion.
Now, what has this all got to do with the Church today?
Answer: If you crave democracy in church business meetings, and if you think you need to mix national politics of our ongoing democracy in the USA with your church pulpit message, you are a FOOL. You are mixing the most mongrel form of government, ACCORDING TO GOD IN DANIEL, with the function the the Lord's Church. All of your democracy is filthy rags. God hates it. God has no pleasure in your voting to determine what his will is. In fact, most of your decisions, and the men you raise to leadership by voting, are an abomination to God. You are dragging the most wretched form of government into the life of your church, and you are making certain that almost all the time the Holy Spirit has no place in your ongoing affairs.
Thus, the next question....................
DID GOD SEND DONALD TRUMP TO SAVE AMERICA?
The only Savior of the world, or America, is Jesus Christ. And, Jesus does not save nations. There is no way to show from the Bible that America can be saved at all. Ah, you will tout the great revivals of the past that seemed to save nations. That is true, but Jesus did ALL the saving one by one, one sinner at a time. The bars of Wales closed during the Welsh Revival because the drunks got saved one by one. Nowhere in the Bible, and in world history since the Cross, can you show me that Christ saved a nation. This would imply that Christ died for America, and all the sinners in America are saved because they are Americans.
The famous Bible text quoted by preachers, and recently by Mike Pence and other politicians is:
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
This is recited, as some sort of religious rabbit's foot, to the American nation that God will save America if the nation "bows the head and bends the knee." That is not the message, and it was not when it was first given to Israel. The word "people," in the Hebrew, means a congregation of individual men. The offer was being made to the people of Israel one by one. When Mike Pence quoted this verse, it is instructional to learn that he left out "and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways." Pence was not about to tell American voters that they were wicked. Pence was simply making a play for the votes of Evangelicals and Conservative Christians. But, he was not about to imply that America could actually be wicked. He cursed his best effort in the hatching of it. HERE IS THE VIDEO OF PENCE
Any preacher in America who thought that some sort of mass turning to God was about to happen, especially if the Lord's people voted for Trump, is a fool and an idiot.
America did not raise Trump to power. His place in power is entirely the work of God, and it had NOTHING to do with the people repenting. It had everything to do with God knowing that Trump would be a vile filthy mouthed man, a man who "grabs them by the p_______," and a man who, as I write, is creeping ever more closely to having some massive evil part of him exposed to the world. God may well have lifted up Trump to destroy America. You do not like me talking like that, do you? Well, tell me what this means:
Daniel 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
But, you say, "This nation is a democracy, so we the people elected Donald Trump." Aside from the issue of the sovereignty of God in every detail of the functioning of earth, the universe, we the people, and you, the Bible teaches that democracy is NOT how God determines his will.
Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
When the ancient Jews wanted to determine this from that, meaning, to make a fair unbiased choice between two options, an older Jew would spread his legs, his robe would form a valley of his lap, and two objects similar to dice were thrown into his lap. We today would toss a coin. The possibility of pure chance was hoped to resolve whatever matter was being contested. The Apostle Peter called for this method of choosing the replacement of Judas who killed himself, and Mattias, by the luck of the toss, became the official twelfth Apostle. Jesus later chose whom he wanted when he accosted Paul on the road to Damascus. Peter showed the suspect decision he made by trying to find God's will by gambling.
Democracy is similar. It lets the masses make choices by the millions, and the claim is then made that the majority made the decision and, in the case of you idiot Fundamental pastors, found the will of God. The verse above in Proverbs tells us that the systems men use to find the will of God have absolutely nothing to do with the actual mind of God. Democracy is a rubbish systems at best, and the chaos and corruption of the process in modern America are making that quite clear. God is THE ONLY ONE responsible for the election of Donald Trump as President.
So, you will ask me how God managed to get Trump elected if it was really his idea from eternity past.
The answer is that God caused Americans, including many of you reading here, to be suckered in by Donald Trump's campaign, and his self-exaltation, and you did exactly what God made you do.
2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
While this text is talking about the Antichrist, there are many antichrists, as John said in I John 2:18. Trump is a very good example of what the Antichrist will be like. God let him talk the talk of a godless man who is pretending to be very religious, and God made sure YOU believed him and voted for him. There was no luck, and no democracy, about the God-given outcome. Your zeal for the Gospel and the Word of God has been so corrupted by politics and patriotism, that God CHOSE YOU to lift up this mongrel excuse for a Christian, Donald Trump. I truly believe that many of you who claim to belong to Christ are fake Christians who just want a bit of religion to fill out your social connections..... just like the fake Christian, Trump.
God set up Barak Obama as President just as certainly as he set up Donald Trump as President. You did not elect Trump. God is still sovereign in the affairs of men, and he may well want Trump to be the most disgusting President in American history to teach some of you preachers and Christian leaders to go back to your pulpit and cleanse it of politics. I am convinced that God is deeply enraged at Bible believing Christians of America for claiming that God is sending Trump to save America. America will soon be totally destroyed for her sins, and I suspect some of you will never admit you made fools of yourselves by promoting Trump along with the Gospel.
You will tell me that it must be of God because Hillary would have been far worse then Trump. Really? What do YOU know about it? God made Nebuchadnezzar eat grass until he repented and exalted God. You have no idea what a sovereign God would do with a creep like Hillary. Or, maybe you do not believe he has the power to make such a woman do his will. Is that it? How big is your God anyway?
THESE BE YOUR GODS, OH YE BASTARD PREACHERS.....
“When I drink my little wine — which is about the only wine I drink — and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed,” he said in July.
DONALD TRUMP PUTS THE VAGINA INTO THE CONCEPT OF HUSTLING
And, you preachers tell me you are now forgiving him. What happened anyway. Did you Fundamental Baptist preachers take holy orders from the Pope so that you could forgive sins on behalf of Jesus? BAH! Donald says he never confesses sin, so his recent playing of religion makes the whole soap opera a giant joke.
I will now make most of you readers here furious.
You have declared, with great confidence, that God sent Trump to save America. You may have even claimed that Trump is a "man of God" and that he got saved and born again because some political religious leader claims it is so.
I believe God has sent Donald Trump to the White House for the distinct purpose of making a giant fool of some of you gullible preachers.
There are two directions the Trump Presidency may well go:
FIRST, One day soon, something very ugly will stick to Trump, and it may be beyond anything imaginable in its filthy nature. Donald Trump is a buddy of the billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and Trump may have flown on the "Lollita Express" to Epstein's mansion in the Canary Islands. The whole process by Epstein is to provide children for his "guests" to sexually violate. This connection is history, and if Epstein ever is indicted for using children to amuse his guests, Epstein will sing like a canary for immunity, and it will make the Michael Cohen debacle seem like kindergarten stuff. And, Trump will be outed for what he really is, a pedophile. This is not a prophecy, but may be a prediction.
You fools who have justified the wicked, a wicked man whom God has lifted up to use him to embarrass blasted fool preachers like Kenneth Copeland and Paula White..... you will have no choice but to either apologize to your local church for leading them to cheer for a vile wretch, or you will have to defend a pedophile to atone for your gullibility. Many of you will defend Trump, even if he ends up in Federal Prison.
SECOND, President Trump may do exactly what he said he would do. I have information to the effect that Trump was behind the arrest of 2500 pedophiles recently around America. The worst may be yet to come. I have another source that claims that Anonymous has captured all the crime history at the CIA from 1945 to the present. In the recent months, this history indicates that around 3000 famous Hollywood, business people, and political notables are to be indicted on pedophilia and child trafficking charges. This is to include recent Presidents, including George W Bush, Obama, and Hillary Clinton. If this happens, it is said to be at the behest of Donald Trump who wanted the thing busted wide open. The swamp WILL drain if this happens, CNN will go bankrupt, CBS and NBC, along with the New York Times, will rush into the arms of Trump, and the US Government will be in chaos. This will then result in preachers around America virtually raising Trump to become the fourth member of the Godhead. And, you who have already made Trump "a man of God" will fall in abject worship of Trump.
Those who are not chastened by God for exalting the wicked are bastards, not sons. Hebrews 12:8
When the Sudan Interior Mission entered Ethiopia, there were few if any truly born again Christians in the nation. That was in 1928. Ten years later, they had 100 Christians who had confessed Christ as Savior, and ten of those had been baptized. In 1938 Italy invaded Ethiopia, and Mussolini started at once to torment Christians, including the SIM missionaries. The missionaries were eventually evicted from the country, and they left heavy hearted for the tiny church they left behind.
When the missionaries came back after WW II, they had not idea what to expect. What they found were 10,000 zealous Christians. Thousands of believers would show up in some remote country location for a preaching conference, and the Italians completely lost control of this growing church. They had only the Bible books of Acts and Ephesians translated into the tribal language of the Walamu tribe where the most Christians were. They had used those two books of the Bible be teach, and they had adopted only one serious error. They forbid the Christians relatives from weeping at the death of a loved one. They took Jesus literally in Luke 7, and they thought he was forbidding weeping with the bereaved. The missionaries soon took them to Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. That ended the only error that church had.
From 1938 to 1941, the Italians intensely persecuted the Christians. Many were killed or tortured. In that era, they grew beyond anyone's imagination. That is what persecution does for truly born again sold out Christians.
It could well happen in America that George Soros would get his dream fulfilled. His hired mob could so destroy the peace by rioting and burning in the cities that Donald Trump would feel he had to declare a National Emergency and invoke the Executive Powers Act. Many of you deluded preachers would at once tell your people to support the President, and you would all breath out fire and damnation on Hillary Clinton and Maxine Waters. You, and many other political preachers, would turn your people into militants in the following civil war. This would result in the President making laws to curb the excesses of the Right as well as the Left. You would soon be told that you could only practice your religion in your church building, and you would be required to get a permit to gather.
When the Italian Military told the church in Ethiopia these same things, the church leaders sent out secret instructions to all the Christians to meet at a certain place on a certain date. When the day came, thousands of Christians covered the hill sides, and powerful revival and soul winning took place. The more the Italians hounded the church of our Lord in Ethiopia, the faster it grew.
Preacher..... would this be the picture at your church if this happened in America? If it is not under Trump, the next administration could well be rabid Progressive Liberals who dedicate themselves to outlaw all zealous Christianity. Would your church grow out of control, or would you kiss the ring of the Liberal Beast? Oh, my my, I suspect you can talk tough now, all about how zealous you would be, but as deluded as you are now in calling Trump a virtual copy of the coming Messiah, I know exactly what you would do if the persecution came. You would cut and run for cover at once and leave the sheep without a shepherd, like the hireling Jesus talked about.
The reason I can be so sure of myself is because I have seen you already wimp out on the Word of God. Most of you preachers no longer preach in the pulpit against sodomy and transexualism. Oh, you make tough sounding comments in the foyer to the men you trust, and at the church dinner table, but your pulpit has become watered down. Nor will you preach the literal teaching of Jesus who forbid divorce and remarriage after divorce. You have come up with clever tricks to escape from Jesus' teaching on that topic in order not to lose the cash flow from remarried divorcees in your assembly.
If you start buttoning your shirt wrong at the bottom, it will be wrong all the way to the top. You have started "fixing" the message now, and under intense persecution you will finish the job of wimping out on Christ. That is exactly what the German church did under Hitler.
Donald Trump may well be America's Hitler. When will you stop making him into a carbon copy of the coming Messiah? Lest you think this Trump picture is contrived, HERE IS MY BLOG POST ON THE TOPIC.
To you who have restrained yourselves and rejected the MAGA mob, thank you my friend.
Jesus says to you:
Revelation 3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Pride and climbing into the Inner Ring
This is my article on climbing and taking control of a group. Pastors in The Lord's Church should never be caught participating in this devilish art form. The ultimate climber was Lucifer. He set his sights high and declared he would become just like the Most High God. For this, God slapped him straight out of Heaven, and he is scheduled to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. If you are a born again pastor, and if you start exalting yourself in any way, God will slap you down also.
Order of the peck
In the barn yard there are usually two of three roosters. We had a flock of chickens some years ago here in Texas, and we had a banty rooster who thought he ruled the flock. He was a terror on the other two roosters which were much larger than the banty. This banty had learned that if he was mean as snot to those two roosters, they would cower and accept their roles in the order of the peck. We named the banty rooster Napoleon. He would fly up on a tree stump and crow his head off announcing his superior position. We finally got so tired of his meanness to the other chickens that we turned him into chicken dinner.
In the Lord's Church there are men who behave like that banty rooster. They are not really worthy of a high place in the order of things, but they assert themselves into positions of power and then prowl the local church looking for anyone who does not submit to them.
The worst of these are pastors. Pastors were given to the Church in Apostolic times for the edification of the Church.
Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
This text is the only place in the New Testament where pastors are discussed. This tells me they are not very important. Apostles, elders, and deacons get a lot more coverage in the Bible teaching to the churches. So, when your pastor starts promoting the notion of "pastoral rule" in the church, he is a heretic. There is NO place in the Bible where pastors are said to rule anything. They are to serve the church according to the text above. They have done their work well when church members are growing into the fulness of Christ.
Thus, when a pastor starts throwing his weight around, he is a pest. He is supposed to concentrate on teaching, not ruling. The hallmark of a ruling pastor will be easy to identify. He makes sure to belittle and slap down all the other men in the local church. This is done by false teaching from the pulpit in which he exalts his "ministry." His ruling power is seen as he stands in groups of members and declares this and that standard of conduct. It is also seen when he gives the final word on some member who left the church, and he curses them and orders the members to stop talking to that former member. It is all about the order of the peck, and it is entirely of Satan.
Greed and Comfort
Men who climb into the inner circle or inner ring will give themselves away by their greed for power, and in the case of banty rooster pastors, in their greed for the cash flow. They will preach on tithing frequently for one simple reason..... they want the cash flow to come to them. If they do not receive the lion's share of the cash from the offering plate, they will demand the power to see who does receive it.
Political pastors also want comfort. The way you can tell easily that you have a comfort craving pastor is to look at his belly. If he cannot see his toes when he looks down, that pastor is a man who craves comfort and luxury.
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Ecclesiastes 5:10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
If your pastor is big in the denomination and the pastor's fellowship in your area, and if he treats himself well and flaunts his toys before you, yet on the other hand, he does not show any instinct to help widows and orphans, he is a fraud. Run him off at once.
This is contributed by a brother pastor:
TEN MARKS OF A PROUD NOVICE PREACHER Although not absolute rules, these are some general observations that I have made through the years . . .
1. He's insecure, so he works hard at staying in touch and in good standing with shallow brethren like himself. Can't lose that support base.
2. He preaches a lot to the choir and to the "Amen" corner, since he is insecure and thrives on the attention and votes of confidence. A cheap "Amen" is always better than a silent moment of truth.
3. He uses straw man arguments to make himself appear valiant, usually overlooking or ignoring the real substance of a matter.
4. He rides the coattails of a few prominent Bible-believing preachers so that he can appear prominent as well.
5. He has never met a microphone or camera that he didn't like.
6. He's usually the biggest mouth in the room.
7. He promotes himself as an authority on the Bible.
8. He's not very strong on prayer, humility, faith and waiting on God . . . for obvious reasons.
9. When confronted about his flaws, he's shocked that you would say such things, but refuses to inquire WHY.
10. He often wrecks his church and feels "led" to either take another church or to enter "full-time evangelism."
"Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil." (I Tim. 3:6)
This list complied by Pastor James Melton, Tennessee
Pastor Melton nailed some qualities in Nicotaitan pastors that I seldom see discussed.
Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Christ was speaking to the Ephesian church. While they had problems, they were commended for hating the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. This article you are reading is meant to help you hate that doctrine also.
So, what is a Nicolaitan? The Greek is simple and defines the man well. Nico- Above.
Laity- The people.
A Nicolaitan exalts himself above the people. Oh my, he waxes eloquent on how much he loves the people and how precious they are to him. But, in actual life he only shines in joy on the people who exalt him. The church he pastors is a mutual exaltation club, and if you do not flatter the buzzard, he will shoulder you out the door soon.
Proverbs 25:6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:
Psalms 131:1 LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
Luke 14:8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
I have known missionaries and pastors who would enter a room and head for the obvious low end of the room. All you need to do to figure this out is to look for the head table where the elite and notable will sit, and head for the farthest table away. I am drawn to these men because I feel certain that they will be very good company.
Emperor Heile Salassie, the king of Ethiopia, had many banquets for his leading men. He also occasionally would ask his secretary to invite some beggar off the street to a banquet in order to show his care for the poor.
One time, Heile Salassie had such a banquet, and a beggar was invited. All the ministers of state, lawyers, and notable men of the government were there, and when the beggar arrived, one of these dandies escorted the beggar to the farthest seat away from the throne.
When the meal was to be served, Emperor Heile Salassie entered the room to welcome all the people, and he noted that the beggar had been shuttled into the far distance. The custom with the Emperor was that he would eat behind a screen because the king was not supposed to be seen eating. So, after the Emperor went behind the screen to eat, he ordered an attendant to go get the beggar and bring him behind the screen. The beggar was given the highest honor in that culture..... to eat with the king at his table.
The man who told me this story said he was part of the event, and he said all the powerful men in the room knew that the Emperor was very upset with his ministers for treating the beggar that way, and his actions were meant to shame these powerful men.
Who does your pastor exalt?
Do YOU enter a room and at once look for the power center of the room to place yourself near the high and mighty? If so, you are a BASTARD SON.
The surest way to destroy a local church is to show the other men, by your example, that climbing and seeking power is the calling of every man of God.
Church leaders have been trying to ride the coat tails of world leaders since the bishops of Rome used Constantine to turn the Roman Empire into the Holy Roman Empire. Sometimes it seems to work well. But, the end of politicized church is deadly. When a Caesar comes into power who hates the previous Caesar, the new Caesar attacks all the friends of the previous Caesar. Many a bishop, and some stupid pastors, have gotten all mixed up in politics, only to find themselves being targeted later be a Pharaoh who knew not Pastor Joseph.
GOD SAVE AMERICA
God does not save nations, period. The only saving going on in the Age of Grace, the Church Age, is the saving of lost souls, one at a time.
God is also not going to make America great again. This nation now murders millions of babies every year, and even the most conservative politicians do nothing about it. Oh, my my, do they not stomp their feet and rage about abortion during campaigns, but when Congress is in session, do they submit bills to stop abortion. Not lately.
Then again, America is now economically totally dependent on war making. If we stopped making war in the Middle East, our economy would likely crash. This is because the war making equipment is our biggest commercial engine. If you think that God is impressed with your prayer requests for the killers in the US Military in the Middle East, you do not know who you are praying to.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Men who crave war are not peacemakers, and they are not the children of God. Oh, you may tell me all about some General or Colonel you know of who chatters about God, but I am a literalist, and Jesus says that a peace maker is a child of God. A war maker is thus not a child of God. I cannot explain what must be done with men who voluntarily join the military, knowing full well that they will be ordered to kill. I shall leave that between them and God. But, for me, a man who kills someone who never threatened him is a murderer. When I was drafted into the US Military, I determined to refuse to kill if I was sent to Vietnam. God honored my plans, and he made sure I was never put on the list to go to Vietnam. My Dad before me did the same during WWII, and God arranged for him to become a medic. It is very hard for me to feel any sense of accomplishment, or to accept honor, for being a US Military Veteran. I refuse to stand during any public meeting where Vets are being recognized. For one thing, all I did was push paper. I did not make America any safer than it was before I entered the Army.
The Christian Church in America has a long history of marching the Military up the aisle to be exalted as heroic. A hero in God's economy of the world today is the man who exalts Jesus Christ and preaches the Gospel to lost sinners. There is NO history of the Church exalting Roman soldiers in the early church era. Paul often used military word pictures and metaphors, but he NEVER suggested the local church make a fuss over any soldiers of Rome who became Bible believers. Neither did he curse them or scold them for their military vocation. Paul simply paid no attention to the mongrel ways and actions of the Roman military or government.
Thus, it is degrading to the Lord's Church to wrap the Bible in the US flag. It is very disorderly to have special days to honor American Military men or their accomplishments. It is also stupid to assume that we can pray, during our meetings and prayer meetings, that God will give America victory as our Military massacre a million civilians, woman and children, in the Middle East. The whole motive of the US Military, in its battles today, has NOTHING to do with liberating anyone. It is all about ending the war with the USA owning the oil and taking power over nations. Praying for this to succeed is like praying that the thugs on the streets of Chicago will liberate the South Side.
Preacher, stop taking your people on a journey into nationalism and patriotism in a nation that will soon be destroyed by God for the same sins that he punished Sodom for. If you don't stop waving the flag in the pulpit, you will one day look like a miserable jerk as you try to explain why America was destroyed.
Isaiah 66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
America is entering an era of delusion. Leaders and people are deluded and unable to reason about some of the most basic truths of life. Witness the folly of trying to make men into woman and women into men, or boys into girls and girls into boys. Who would have ever thought this could become a large issue in 1950? But, the juggernaut of social insanity is rolling, and people are jumping on and taking the ride.
Also, as in verse 4 above, God has baptized America in fear. The Democrats are in abject terror of the function of the system called democracy. They crave power so that they can invent a totally new social order and burn the national documents and wipe out law and order as it has been known. The wicked are not doing these things. You are a fool if you think that. God said above that he sends people delusion and fear. God is in the process NOW of destroying the mental health of millions in America. The US Military is hard at work trying to invent devices which can rob the adversary of his sanity, and they have accomplished their objective. They can not blast radio wave energy at the enemy and make them all wet their pants of vomit. The US Military think they are ever so clever, but God tells us that he will be intentionally trashing the minds of wicked people soon, and events in the world convince me God has pushed the "Start" button already.
For you who think you are conservatives, God has given you a man as leader who has a filthy mind, throws away his wives, and who rages nonstop against everyone he disagrees with. President Donald Trump is so unlike the man of God presented in the Bible that it is terrifying. It is especially terrifying to see America's pastor's fawning over this man as if he were a prophet of God.
So, in answer to our title above, "Did God Hack the American Election," the answer is yes. God gave America exactly the right men to destroy the nation, and this man is being promoted by thousands of American pastors as a model of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. How can these pastors be born again and exalt the man God chose to destroy America?
WAYS IN WHICH DONALD TRUMP IS UNLIKE JESUS CHRIST
Pride and Flattery- Donald Trump flatters men all the time, and he praises them for great things. He even flatters his enemies just before he attacks them. This is the MO of a manipulator. Furthermore, Trump is full of pride and self-exaltation. There is seldom any humility found in him, and humility is supposed to be very obvious in any real Christian.
Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Mouth- Trump's mouth walks through the world slapping one and all down on Twitter. His mouth angers many people, and even his supporters admit they wish he would get off of Twitter.
Luke 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?
Grab 'em by the p______- This is Trump's recommendation to young men on how to get to the ladies. This is in no way like Jesus Christ.
Jesus rescued the woman caught in adultery from being stoned and sent her on her way forvigen.
Jesus rescued Martha from the bondage of the culture that forced women to do nothing but serve men.
Jesus was followed constantly by women who learned his doctrine and contributed to his support.
Jesus taught Martha the doctrine of the resurrection at Lazarus' tomb, and he insisted that Martha give back to him her understanding of the resurrection. Women were to be totally silent in Jesus' day.
Jesus was never anointed by men, but two different women anointed him, and of one he said she anointed him to his crucifixion.
War- Trump is gloating in his war making, and he threatens war in North Korea and more war in the Middle East. He continued to supply the missiles that Saudi Arabia used to blow up the water supply, hospitals, and market places of Yemen. This has resulted in horrible famine and plague in that nation.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Divorce and Remarriage- Jesus taught very plainly, but 95% of all pastors, even Fundamental Baptists, have tried to change what Jesus said in order to justify divorce and remarriage.
Mark 10:10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
Spiritual Fruit Missing- We have yet to see a photo op of Trump attending church services. He has NO instinct to be in fellowship with Bible believers. We saw more photos of Bill and Hillary Clinton in church than Trump.
John 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Donald Trump NEVER asks his followers to love their enemies. Indeed he never commends anyone for being a person who loves other people. Donald Trump is a man who inspires ridicule, revenge, and hate in his voting base.
Tell me, pastor, when is the last time you told your local church members that they must love Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton. The Lord's Church has no greater enemies than those two Christ haters. Did Jesus tell us to hate them or love them?
Wrong moves when Trump is with Christians-
HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS PERFORMING INSTEAD OF PRAISING GOD
Trump dances like a distracted two year old.
When Trump is hauled down and finally thrown to the dogs by God, will you blame God?
1. Stop wrapping your Bible in the American flag.
The US Constitution is not an appendix to the Bible. A true Bible believer does not want to be patriotic to any nation when he is meeting with the saints in a local church. There is NO place in the New Testament where any Apostle encouraged the Church to exalt Rome or Caesar or patriotic spirit.
We certainly are to pray for rulers, but with a view that we may have peace from those rulers. When the local church makes their pulpit a cheer leading forum for any political cause, that church is mixing the profane with the holy.
If your church is all embroiled in politics and exalting leaders, and if the foyer of your church house rings with cursings against Liberal Democrats, find another church to attend.
For the record, Jesus Christ has NO affection for the American flag. This flag now stands for millions of abortions and for the exaltation of sodomy. Virtually all political parties solicit the vote of faggots.
2. Stop exalting wicked men.
By allowing political pastors and Christian leaders to sucker us into church house politics, we are becoming the shills of the political parties. This is totally outside the teaching if Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, or any other New Testament writers. The Holy Spirit clearly does NOT want to be the master of ceremonies at patriotic and political rallies.
So, stop letting your pastor make your church services into political events. Call the pastor on this, first privately, and if he will not deal with it, rebuke him before all the assembly openly.
The Word of God is given for distinct purposes, and one of them is NOT to be a political work book:
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
The Bible is not an instruction book in how to win an election, nor is it an appendix to the US Constitution.
3. Spend more time exalting Jesus Christ.
Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
You can tell when a man is violating this Apostolic instruction. The man exalts himself. I don't care how seldom, or how humbly, you exalt yourself, you are a fraud, and probably not born again, if your instinct is to talk about yourself instead of about Jesus.
Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
4. Examine all things by the standard of the Word of God alone.
You are not called too overlook sin in any man, beginning with yourself. To say that Trump can be forgiven for divorcing his two first wives in order to get hot fresh flesh if wicked.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.
5. When it comes to human relations choices, stay away from the extremes.
The problem we have as Bible believers is that we mix up our Lord's teaching on the Narrow Way with our politics. In matters of the Gospel, Christian doctrine, and personal ethics, we are indeed to go to the extreme conservative side in all things. We are taught, correctly I hope, that a little immodesty is just plain sin. We would panic if we asked a pastor if he was faithful to his wife, and he said, "Well, yes, I would say 95% of the time." We don't want to allow any drift away from the holiness of God.
But, in politics it is not so easy to figure out. The classic example is in the Republicans, who are almost the only party of choice to narrow way Christians. Republicans are the champions fighting abortion, but on the other hand, Republicans are the ones who most vigorously promote war in the Middle East to never end. I trust you are savvy enough in the use of your Bible to agree that God does not like war for the reasons our leaders give us today.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
As I wrote this article, Senator John McCain, a leading Republican, died. He was famous as the most vigorous hawk in the Senate to promote more war making.
I used these examples to show you that, in dealing with the affairs of human activity, we may at times find that our Bible places us closer to the middle than at the extreme of the political population. The point is this..... before you decide where you stand on an issue, open your Bible, not the US Constitution, and not the official position of some political party.
In America the extremes are populated by Neo-Nazis on the Far Right, and Marxists on the Far Left. I hope you can see the folly of going as vigorously to the right in politics as you do in your Christian zeal for the Narrow Way.
Ecclesiastes 5:1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
I can tell who the banty roosters are in any gathering by looking for the big mouths.
These men take the corners of the foyer of the meeting place, and they talk and talk about their numbers saved, baptized, and how many buses they send out for Sunday School. There will be a covey of stupid and shallow boys around these men lapping up their words as if they just found the holy grail.
Then, right out in the center of the foyer stands the most arrogant and powerful man of them all. He has a full circle of worshipers around him, and he is clearly the most eloquent and self-possessed man in the whole mob.
You are a blasted fool if you are one of these power men, or if you are one of their worshipful warm puppies.
In the era of Donald Trump, we need one last discussion about Christian zeal and politics.
Finally, I want you to determine how you come across to people you meet, serve, or teach. The TED Talk is well done, but I am not suggesting you adopt techniques that promote you to power. That would defeat everything I talked about above. What I want you to listen for is the fact that appealing leaders project the body language of power, but they were relaxed. This means their Testosterone went up, but their cortisol went down. If your Testosterone goes up, AND your cortisol goes up when you come into the room or meet with people socially, you are a brute and trying to take the rule over people instead of serve them.
Please watch the video:
Some pastor is reading this article who has recently concluded he does not belong in a church in the role of a pastor. The power boys at the pastor's rally will quickly approve of you dropping out and selling insurance for the rest of you life. I am not going to ask you to fake being a good servant of Christ in the model of the TED speaker. You don't have to fake it. Where you are is right where you belong. The greatest Apostle started right there where you are. Watch this:
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
And, his answer to himself:
Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Start right where you are, sir..... whipped, no fruit to justify your ministry, and plenty of negative factors to look at in your local church. There is no condemnation from your Lord and Savior. Rather than fake it like the lady speaker suggested, go to Jesus Christ, and ask him to take charge for you. When Jesus takes charge, there is no fake about it. You WILL become what Christ wants you to become. And, what your pastor friends in the denomination, or at the preacher's rally, think about it does not matter in the least. You are NOT their servant, and their words to you come from their shriveled up soul dominated by pride and ego.
Grab hold, sir. You have fished all night and caught nothing. Cast your net on the other side of the boat please.
SEND N MAIL- Can I be of any help to you?
