So How Do We Wake People Up?
I Wish I knew the answer to such an important and urgent question, but I must confess I don’t. That truly rests in the hands of God. God is still in control although it may seem like He is doing nothing, He is. In the case of conservatives who slumber, or perhaps, are simply cowering in a shadowy corner with millions of “evangelical” Christians who have a great time on social media complaining about the serious sins of the world, such as Homosexuals, Abortion, sexual misconduct of politicians, celebrities, TV and movie violence, fornication and who will fire a preacher for preaching against liberalism and socialism invading our nation and Church, for fear of losing the tax exempt for their congregation. I know what I am talking about, more than half of the big tithers would stop tithing if they could not claim it on their taxes, whatever happened to “give unto Caesar which is Caesars?”
Liberal Christianity has offered a safe place for the Christian congregation and many embraced liberal theology, and of course mega-churches started growing like weeds out of control. You because many preachers stopped preaching the Word of God and not addressing the issue of sin, some even went to preaching from the New Testament only, to avoid calling sin, S-I-N. Can you see why I have written several articles on the Seven Churches of Asia Minor (Rev. 1-3), along with some other Old Testament sermons especially dealing with sin and the Law, Law that Jesus told His Disciples that He had not come to abolish nor to change – not one tittle.
While Jesus came seeking the sinner, seeking with the grace of God and the gospel of repentance forgiveness of God, from all sin and unrighteousness. And like the Apostle Paul wrote, that without the Law we would have no sin, which is true, without the Law we would not know what sin is and what sin is not. But God gave the law that His people would be obedient to Him and to manage to live with each other and all of humanity.
The Ten Commandments were given so as the first four pertain to man’s relationship with God, the creator of all. The subsequent six pertain to man’s relationship to man, that we might live in peace with each other.
Because human nature is corrupt and sinful, we all have a nature filled with all sorts of desires or appetites for evil, and God has been the one who has attempted to offer a way from eternal damnation and the final estate of hell. I cannot preach enough on the love of God, and one of the reasons is how God loves us so much that He sacrificed His Son to fulfill the Law. But nearly half of “postmodern” Christianity, falling in after various interpretations of the Bible but not the versions which all say the same thing just in familiar English, personally it depends what my application is, with all versions, sin is still sin and in the United States, we once had moral values, integrity, and Christian freedom. Now we have chaos, hatred, all sorts of corruption and evil in our elected officials and in the leaders of liberal theological churches.
But Satan, yes Satan exists just as surely as hell. Satan, his devils, and demons cannot coexist with moral values, integrity, and people who are trying to live their Christian faith – all a constant threat to his work to claim souls and not all allow God to succeed reclaiming His creation to Himself. Satan has made great gains in the world and well should he have, after all, he is the prince of the air and controls the air and municipalities. It is Satan that walks to and fro upon the earth seeking those to devour and as Satan can make our lives miserable, he can only own those who follow him and those who reject God’s grace and reject the work of our Lord Jesus. Satan will never own the soul of a saved-born again Christian.
Now let’s get back to our beloved nation. Let me not be mistaken about the fact that the United States is and always has been a Christian nation, the one thing that our citizens need to understand really should reestablish, it has taken Satan over two centuries to convince, deceive, destroy the nation and the people in it. Speaking of Satan, I read an article I found in The Vigilant Citizen concerning the Satanic Temple, apparently, it is a well organized nontheistic religious and political activist group based in Salem Massachusetts and has chapters in 13+ states. Among putting a monument in the Rotunda of the Michigan State House, and Illinois on the Capital lawn, (all legal) and created an after-school program for children called “After School Satan.” It is up and running in cities across the U.S. including Atlanta, Los Angles, Salt Lake City, Pensacola, Washington D.C., Tucson, Springfield, Seattle, and Portland. I have not found the media outlets, but I will.
My problem with this is: How the officials let the Satanic Temple do legally what they will not allow Christians to do? As a matter of fact, they (officials) have banned crosses, Christian decorations, cross memorials in cemeteries – anything, anything at all that symbolizes Christian-Judeo religion, even had some private business’ remove them usually through some sort of lawsuit from an individual activist group who target Christian businesses. Satan has a big political foothold on our nation. Mainstream Media, Social Media platforms, and the political bias Judicial System.
Now, biblical Christianity has been under attack for decades, it is known as modernity or Modernism. Started early on during the late 19th and early century. It is a philosophical movement along with the cultural trend. Trends rising from wide-scale and far-reaching transformation in Western society. Industrialization grew cities into mega cities where they developed their own culture, their own free thinking and it spread with the help of our education system with the gentle propaganda, (At first), within the school administrators, Teacher’s Unions, and liberal state legislators.
We are experiencing a full-blown liberal public-school system, (In most part), and the loss of a generation. Under the façade of liberalism, we now have a liberal-socialism sweeping the nation and continuing to divide and remove our constitutional rights and freedoms. Brainwash the majority of two generations and socialism has an open door. No moral values, integrity, and Christianity (biblical Christianity), will be of no measurable consequence, except for Christians. And until Jesus Comes, we will probably be holding worship services in caves, but we will persevere in the might of the Lord Jesus.
Comcast Xfinity 200 plus channel and costs nearly as much a month with only one Christian channel, local affiliates of the MSM perhaps six or seven tolerable broadcasts and some oldies, the rest are ad channels milking the uninformed with junk. However, there is no option other than Dish which is nearly the same. Liberalism control what we are able to watch and that at the best subliminal propaganda (like global warming/climate change on “The Weather Channel” just to mention one so you can understand how socialist subliminal propaganda messaging works, all the way across our media networks starting from program writers and how they manipulate dialogue in script to set management to advertising, the media networks are the controlling source for our information, with the exception of our public school system. And that is for the next blog, as President Trump put out his EO for Freedom of Speech on campuses of our great colleges and institutions of higher propaganda. Now infested with liberal-socialist professors and administrators.
Back to the question at hand, “How do we wake people up?” and as I said, it will take God. And those he called to be His children. Are you up to the challenge? It is my studied opinion, that every conservative patriot and citizen who cares about our nation, Christian or non-Christian, Atheist, Jew, brown, red, yellow, black and white including anyone legally here trying to become a citizen of the USA, you are all called to help. Help wake up those who slumber, those who are afraid and huddle in a shadowy corner in fear of liberal-socialist ridicule and the bullying press. Time to at least wake the slumbering and afraid to stand and boldly proclaim Jesus, our Christian nation and our Christian principals, and if it offends the corrupt and evil, so-be-it let them pack up and find a more suitable country.
You are also called as a citizen to stand against what the Democrats and establishment corrupt snakes in Congress keep trying to do, you are called to do your own research and determine to go to the poll and vote liberal, progressive, socialist globalist out of office! From dog catcher to Senator … they have no power over you except that which you yield up – so instead of telling the conservatives in Congress to grow a spine, you might grow one and go about waking people up and making sure they know what is going on. Most of those slumbering and cowering in the shadows know what is happening but have not had the encouragement to wake up.
Courage and commitment is what God needs of our citizens and his church to encourage and support people to expose the vile politicians and vote them out of office before they destroy the Constitution and the Christian church. Empower the people to stop and overcome the vile septic state we are finding we are slopping around in.
God bless you.
