I know my pea-brained get confused at times, but it seems that I recall somewhere in my education experience that in a democracy the majority is supposed to rule. Hmmm, there is something wrong with the picture I am getting out of Washington. Oh, excuse me, we are a republic. Well, a republic is a type of democracy in which we elect people to vote the will of the majority. Hmmmm, still something wrong with what’s going on in Washington.
Folks, you better listen and listen tight–you ain’t seen nothing yet. Things will be happening right fast up until January of next year, and if Hillary gets elected they will continue. With this Oval Office and the way it is, there is nothing to fear from outsiders invading as the country has been given over to the liberals and their agenda.
Have you ever noticed that Christians can stir up animosity among those in the world? Conflicts and persecution will come and that’s a fact. There are difficulties from all quarters of life. Now our own stupidity can cause up severe problems but there are some other reasons why Spirit-led people may suffer. I came across the following by Elliot Johnson.
1) Our message of the cross is foolish to lost people who refuse to repent. (1 Corinthians 1:18)
2) Lost people hate Jesus and the Father without reason. If they hate Him, they will hate those who follow Him. (John 15:18-16:4)
3) Lost people disobey Jesus and the Father. Saved people obey God’s Word. Those who obey God are an indictment to those who reject Him. (1 John 3:21-24)
4) Lost people don’t have the same spiritual Father as Spirit-led people. Their spiritual father is Satan, the father of lies and of unbelief. (John 8:42-47)
5) Lost people who dismiss Jesus as irrelevant can’t see the Kingdom of Heaven. They want everything now, without denying self. Saved people postpone gratification until the rewards of Heaven. (1 Corinthians 2:14)
6) Lost people don’t comprehend their imminent peril of eternal separation from God. When warned by saved people, some think we are fanatics. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
7) Spirit-led people don’t belong to the save evil world system that dictates to lost people. Our marching orders come from above.(1 John 2:15-17)
8) Spirit-led people smell like death to lost people. They don’t like being convicted of their sin by the lifestyles of saved people. (2 Corinthians 2:15-16)
“More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of.”
–Alfred, Lord Tennyson
With all the depravity and the tension and the terror and the evil continue on with the fight. Continue on with the high calling of Jesus Christ. And have you ever thought of thanking Him for the situation that is happening around you? Who is in charge of your life anyhow?
“Keep on thankin’ and fightin’.” –Zane Grey
