Police State of Christians Coming

Matthew 24:7-11 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. (NIV)

Matthew 24:15-25  “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.” (NIV)

          Recently in the news a Sudanese woman, Meriam Ibrahim, sentenced to die for being a Christian (although the government declared her to be a Muslim) and marrying a Christian man. This was considered to be an act of adultery for which, execution is the law of the land where she is a native. Her sentence to be administered consisted of receiving 100 lashes and then being hung to death. At the time of her arrest, she was 8 months pregnant with the couple’s second child and had to deliver the baby while being chained in prison. However, she was released only to be imprisoned once again and then released after many prayers and criticisms from the public.

          Many Christians in China have been persecuted as well for their religious beliefs. According to an article in Christianity Today, numerous Christians within China have been subjected to arrest, short-term detention, rape, confiscation of property, beatings, fines, police intimidation, and much more. Many have had to have home churches due to not being able to have a church in a building. Even these are considered as illegal and those involved have been subjected to jail time. Unfortunately, this is to be expected in the last days according to the Bible. 
2 Timothy 3:12-13 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. (NIV)

                       Just the other day, a congregation of Chinese Christians were tearfully saddened when their government had the cross, that was on the top of their church, removed. They had been threatened to not have petitions or talk to the media with regards to its removal. 15 other churches with crosses are facing possible removal by the end of the month. Many churches have been demolished in the middle of the night without proper paperwork and other appropriate documents necessary by law. Everyday persecution is being carried out by other countries who are anti-Christian. The United States and other prominent nations will soon face the same challenges. In many ways, the United States is quickly heading in that direction under the anti-God leadership that is overtaking the country and soon the entire nation. 

          The United States seem to be preparing for something big. It seems that they are preparing for an all-out war against its own citizens. Could it be that it expects an uprising from those whom they have sworn to protect? Could all the anti-God laws be the cause of them preparing to imprison those who do not believe and agree with their New World Order and Lucipherian agenda? Isn't it strange that while our nation has agreed to allow open borders for immigrants coming from other nations that they are constantly passing laws to limit the freedoms of their own citizens? In recent news, various governmental agencies have purchased weapons and ammunition for what some think could be preparation for civil unrest on US soil. Here is a list of some of the governmental agencies who have and are trying to purchase ammunition and some of what was purchased.

A.) US Social Security Administration is stock piling 174,000 rounds of hallow-point bullets. (Designed to spread out in the body and fragment to cause maximum damage.)
B.)  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) requested 46,000 of hallow-point bullets.
C.)  DHS
E.)  Department of Education
F.)  US Fish and Wildlife Service
G.) US Postal Service
H.) FBI (100,000,000) hallow-point bullets
I.)    Homeland Security

J.)    Department of Agriculture

           Does this look strange to you? What does the IRS and United States Postal Service--just to name a few, need with ammunition? What is the US not telling their citizens? Here are a couple of excerpts form Fox News in regards to who is considered the enemy in the US.

Excerpts taken from Fox News:

“Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”
“A soldier who attended the October 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.”

          I think that it is quite interesting that evangelicals could be considered the enemy while the United States has been said to have helped fund Al-Qaeda organizations. The open borders allowing access to illegal immigrants are being welcomed while the US is demolishing the freedoms that we once had. Those freedoms consisting of religion, speech, healthcare, guns, and much more are increasingly coming to an end due to an administration who seems to have one overall agenda in mind and that is to protect the religion of Islam, homosexuality, and overthrow God. 

          Could it be that those who believe in standing up for God is a threat to the government because it makes them face the reality of their wickedness? John 15:19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. (NIV) The world considers those who will stand up for God to be a threat to their freedoms and beliefs. They will call people standing up for Christ as religious fanatics, over conservatives, bigots and the likes. Even those who are self-proclaimed Christians do not fail to join in on the anti-Christian propaganda with ridiculing other Christians who have decided to take a stand for God instead of straddling the fence. 
           However, we are not to back down from what we believe regardless of who does not like it. We are to stand boldly before others even when they persecute us and say all manner of things against us. When Jesus was healing the sick and casting out demons, the Pharisees dared to call him names. Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, "It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons." (NIV) Imagine Jesus, the Son of God, being compared to the demonic host. They were blinded by their hatred and contempt for Him and the things of God that He stood for. Regardless of their ridicule, Jesus continued to do what God had sent Him to do and that was to relieve a world from the debt that they owed because of sin. How much more are we to do, which falls nothing short of Jesus' sacrifice? 
          There is coming a day in the United States and other nations where we will have to decide for Who we are going to stand. It will not be a day of freedom, but a day of bondage and earthly enslavement. It will be a day when families will turn on each other and friends will become quick enemies for the cause of Christ. We will suffer the same persecutions that have befallen the other nations of the world. Jesus prophesied this in the Bible and all prophecies given will come to pass. We are nearly in a Police State within America. We have allowed our freedoms to be taken away by process of a vote. We as a nation have turned our backs to God and therefore, the judgment is quickly approaching. However, just as there were some saved in the flood and Sodom and Gomorrah, there will be those who will stand for God and will be rescued. This is not to say that some of us will not face death, but all who die for Christ will receive their eternal reward in Heaven. 
2 Corinthians 4:8-12 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you. (NIV)

Being an Uncompromising Warrior for Christ!

Ephesians 6:10-13 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have down everything, to stand. (NIV)

          The days are quickly approaching and may even be here where all who profess the name of Jesus must take a stand for what they believe. The world has become so wicked that wrong is the new Right and right is the new Wrong—even within the body of Christ. People have become settled and complacent with the evils that are taking place in the world. To see ungodly acts being passed in legislation, transpiring in the media, and even within the church no longer raises eyebrows, but are ignored just to keep the peace.  To make a stand against the things that are not of God will have one labeled as a Pharisee, bigot, and as “judging.” Even amongst Christians, a person who dares to defy the popular, misguided compromise and deception of some teachings will be isolated, black-balled, and rebuked for the sake of righteousness. To stand for truth is not only unpopular, but it can lead one down a road of loneliness. 

          Despite not winning the “Popularity Metal” when it comes to standing for the things of God, never think that God leaves you to stand alone. He will always guide you and even send people your way to go alongside you to keep you encouraged. The apostle Paul had to face this issue when he was once a persecutor of Christians. I am sure that it wasn’t easy leaving behind the people who he had been in league with. However, Paul knew that it was more important for him to follow Christ than to follow what was popular. Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God. (NIV) Paul was set apart; therefore, he could not fit in to the status quo. This meant that he could not follow tradition. He had to come out of what was considered as normal and take a stand for what was right. The Romans during that time did not like the Christians and they persecuted those who followed and preached the teachings of Christ. However, the apostles kept preaching even at the expense of their own lives. They knew that nothing could keep them from God’s love and teaching that love to others. Romans 8:36-39 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIV)

          Let’s start by first understanding the meaning of living for Christ. Many people have the misconception that living a life for Christ means one of boredom, sadness, and mediocre living. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)  God wants us to fully enjoy the life that He has given us with all the beauty that it has to offer. Sin and death was never part of God’s original design for man. However, due to the fall of Adam, we are now in a world where hardships and pain are a part of life. Despite the obstacles that life has to offer, God still wants what’s best for His children. He desires for us to live a life that represents Him. In that life, we are to laugh: smile, work, play, build wholesome relationships, and honor Him by enjoying the life that He has given us. Even when the Children of Israel were to be punished because of their idolatrous living, by being taken in captivity by Nebuchadnezzar, God still wanted them to build houses, marry, have children and continue to thrive as a nation. He did not desire for their destruction or He could have easily done so. God wanted His children to never forget about Him as their Sole Provider, so that He could bless them abundantly and have a relationship with them. It was the Children of Israel who turned their backs to Him and not the other way around. 
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (NIV) 

In living for Christ, we are to live a life of righteousness. Titus 2:12 It (Salvation) teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age. (NIV) We are to follow the example that Jesus did while on earth. 1 Peter 2:21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. (NIV) We are to pray to our Heavenly Father and have frequent communication with Him. Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (NIV) We are to treat each other right and pray even for our enemies. 1 John 4:20-21 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, who they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother. (NIV) We are to witness to others and tell them about the goodness of God. Isaiah 63:7 I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us—yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses. (NIV)

          Living for Christ does not have to be boring. However, we are to be leaders of the world and not followers of ungodly trends. Therefore, because we are set apart, there should be a noticeable difference in the way that we look, act, speak, and live. We cannot dress provocatively like the world and expect them to run towards the cross. We cannot act crazy like they do on these reality shows and expect to save souls. We cannot not curse someone out in one sentence and praise God in the next. We cannot sing and listen to all of the music they do when it is leading people to hell due to the satanic and sexual content most contain. We cannot live any old kind of way and think that straddling the fence to fit in will get them or us into heaven. Joshua 24:15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (NIV) We must make a choice either for God or for man. Whatever the choice is, we cannot do both. God wants us to decide that we will stand completely for Him and not compromise our standards even if that means being ostracized. Revelation 3:15-16  I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one of the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. (NIV)

Now what about when you face opposition? It is normal to face it from the world, but what about from within the body of Christ for standing up for what’s right? Sometimes, the church are the main ones who persecute you for what’s right. They love to quote the text about judging. However, what does it mean to judge? Does that mean that you never tell anyone what is right because you may have fallen victim to sin in the past? NO! Matthew 7:1-5 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” (NIV) What this text means is that if you are living a sinful life yourself, you cannot point out the sins of someone else. You must first evaluate yourself and get things right between you and God, then you can lead someone else to Christ. This doesn’t mean that you have to be perfect in order to tell someone who is living in sin that they are on the wrong path. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (NIV) However, do not be like the Pharisees who were giving the law and yet did not have love or compassion for others. We are to tell others the truth in order to save their souls and keep them from error; but while doing so, do it in a loving manner, so that they can be won over to Christ. 2 Timothy 4:2-3 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. (NIV

As a warrior for Christ, we must stand up no matter what. Souls are at stake! There are a lot of souls on the highway to hell, but with every soul we witness to is another soul we can possibly keep from the enemy’s camp of eternal damnation. The devil is real! Hell is real! And unfortunately, the reality is that many are going to be lost both Christians and non-Christians. If you could save just one, wouldn’t it be worth the try? Stand up for Christ just as He stood up for us. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. (NIV)

Secular Church

Romans 12:2 Do not confirm to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. (NIV)

            The church is a hospital for the sick. Those who have been born in a world of sin (everyone) are welcome. We are the patients and God is the Chief Physician who invites all to come. Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (NIV) Inside the hospital, there are people who have diseases of all kinds. However, there is no disease that God cannot cure. There is no ailment that He hasn’t an antidote for. He never runs out of medicine, and His hours of operation are always open. Within this hospital, He has placed Physician Assistants (PA)—(bishops, pastors and elders) to assist the patients with whatever ails them. Unfortunately, many PAs are sick themselves and therefore, transfer their illnesses onto their patients. Even more so, they allow germs to creep into the hospital; therefore, causing the hospital to become even more infected than it already is. What am I talking about? I am speaking of Secularism within the body of Christ.

            Many of us, in an attempt to be like the world, have compromised the standards of God that we once so boldly stood for and have become limp like noodles. In a desire to straddle the fence, we have allowed all kinds of ungodly things creep inside the church. Pastors have become the Donald Trumps of the church. They have become the CEO’s of the boardroom and anyone who stands up for the traditions of God, they say, “You’re Fired.” Yes, pastors wanting to be in the presence of those with influence and money have compromised standing up for what is right in accordance to the word of God. It’s easier for them to compromise than to evangelize. 

            Some of them say anything and everything in the pulpit--in the house of God. From swearing to cursing there is nothing that is sacred with regards to being in God’s house. And yet, when you call these things out, saints are so quick to say that you are judging. Well, we are held up to a standard that is different than the world’s. However, if there is no difference between us, then what is the purpose of truly being a Christian? 1Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (NIV) The world should see that we are set apart. They should be able to tell that there is a major difference between us and them. We should be a light in such a manner that it will draw them to us like a magnet. However, in many ways, the world is drawing the church to it-- the church has compromised itself to blend in instead of setting the trend.

           One of the major ways that this is happening is through the music that is being passed over as “Gospel” because it mentions God.  One example of this is the song “Clean this House” by Isaac Caarre featuring R. Kelly. Now, I am not saying that listening to this song is a sin, so please do not take this as if I am saying that it is. The song is actually nice and has good lyrics. However, when Christian artists collaborate with secular artists to do Christian music rather it is gospel, rap, or some other genre, does it still have the same "anointing" as is would if it were by a truly anointed voice of God? R Kelly just recently made an album titled, “Black Panties” but he is on a song titled, “Clean this House.” I suppose he’s going to clean this house with his black panties….Come on people. Is this really where we are going as a church today? Are we so desperate to be part of the secular realm that we want to have the endorsement of just anyone as long as the dollars rack in?

          Former Destiny's Child musical artist, Michelle Williams, just made a song, “Say Yes” with her former group mates, Beyonce and Kelly. Now, even though it is nice that she wanted her former sisters with her on her album, we all know that Destiny Child was not a group glorifying God; even more so, Beyonce and her alter ego, Sasha Fierce, has pretty much gone over to the dark side. How can this glorify God even though it is on a gospel soundtrack? It is like having the devil direct the choir (and in many cases he is) and calling it worship. It is impossible! Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." (NIV) The Bible tells us that we are not able to have 2 masters. Therefore, if you are singing about casual sex, but then singing about God, the two will not mix. Therefore, the 2 should not mix in the church as well. Again, this is not to say that listening to this song is a sin for only God can convict you of what you should do. However, do not be fooled as to what is of God and what is just secular. 1 Corinthians 10:23 "I have the right to do anything," you say--but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"--but not everything is constructive. (NIV)


          Another thing that has come into the body of Christ is Pastors and Bishops cursing and saying all manner of things in the pulpit. There are many leaders who have no tact or regard for the house of God in the things that they say. They quote ungodly lyrics from songs that would make Jesus leave the building, and they dare to have God and a curse word in the same sentence. The amazing thing about it is that many within the congregation are agreeable to it as long as the sermon sounds good. They don't raise an eyebrow to what was said just as long as it comes from the mouth of the pastor. They are blinded by their willingness to hoop, holler and shout as long as the music is playing, which also in many cases, play on their emotions. No wonder we are considered as sheep--sheep are dumb animals in need of a GOOD shepherd. 
John 10:11-14 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me--" (NIV)

          Another thing that is facing the body of Christ is that too many are being willing to accept ungodly practices such as homosexuality. Instead of making a stand against it, many well-known leaders are afraid to confront the issue head-on. When asked what their stance is on the matter, they dance around the topic as if they are walking on burning coals. Leaders within the body of Christ, as well as the church as a whole, may have contributed to the passing of many anti-God laws due to their silence, which will come back to bite the church later. Instead of standing up for what is right, they encourage their members to close their mouths, take a seat, and avoid the appearance of being confrontational. No one wants to make a stand. No one wants to rub others the wrong way. No one wants to be labeled as a troublemaker. No one wants to stand for God--with the exception of a few. If the church isn't careful, as some churches have already done, they will compromise their way to hell for not standing up for what's right. 

          Another thing that is affecting the body of Christ is the prosperity gospel. What is the prosperity gospel? It is the teaching that God wants to prosper you, but it is often mixed with error. Many pastors teach that if you give this much, sign this pledge, or plant a seed to your pastor that God will miraculously increase your financial status. However, God does not bless people based upon the amount of money that they give. He blesses based on the faith behind it. I have heard some pastor use scriptures in the Bible to guilt people into giving when it is actually for them to become a mega church. This is not to say that God doesn't want the church to grow, but too much focus is placed on the money coming in and not on the growth and preparedness of the saints for Christ imminent return. The only time that many teach about Christ return is at a home-going service. It seems that they do not want saints to know about the times that we are living in and therefore, they prefer to do remixes on money rather than the coming persecution of the body of Christ. They have deceived many into thinking that they will be raptured  away and will not have to face persecution. However, if only the saints would open their eyes and study for themselves, they will see that they are being deceived. Persecution is taking place all around them in other countries and it will soon be in the United States of America. Look at all the anti-God laws that have been passed by the Obama administration alone--the time is getting near. 

           There are many issues that are affecting the effectiveness of the body of Christ to witness to others. Many of which is keeping people from being prepared for Christ return. We are not supposed to be like the world. There is supposed to be distinction between us and them. If we are saying everything, doing everything, and modeling everything that they do, where is the room for Christ to make a change in them? However, it seems what we must allow God to make a change in us first before a change can be made in them. We are set apart and rather we like it or not, it is our job to act as such. Jesus is coming after a bride who is without spot or wrinkle. Many of us need to take out the ironing board and get to pressing. We have too many wrinkles where we should already be starched and ready to go. May God bless you to stand out and set the trend rather than follow one.

Godless President+Godless Government+Cowards of the Gospel=Perfect Storm (God's Judgment)

1 Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (NIV)

            There is a lot of Godlessness taking place in the United States. Leaders in government are taking the nation in a downward spiral towards a pit of sin and various abominations. They want to abolish Christian principles for evil practices that coincide with their demonic New World Order, ungodly legislation, and homosexual agendas just to name a few. Their attempt to destroy and eliminate all aspects of God is proving to be quite successful, while many within the Christian community remain asleep at the wheel. The outcry, which the Christian community should have with regards to various laws, court orders, and new restrictions prohibiting freedoms of religion and speech, is remaining silent for fear of being too judgmental and critical. Instead of sounding the alarm when the country is falling like a stack of dominoes, the Christian Community has buried its head in the sand with the belief that if they ignore it long enough, it will go away. If they preach “ONLY” love and be accepting of the world’s belief system, then this is the will of God. However, this problem that is facing the United States and in particular the Christian Community is not going away. As a matter of fact, it is only going to get worse.

            Too many Christians and their leaders are oftentimes afraid to offend others and tell the truth about the errors of our nation and government. They choose to water down the gospel in an effort to keep the members of their congregation happy. As long as you offer many of them hopes of prosperity, longevity and guaranteed entry into heaven, they will shout, dance, and run around the church. The offerings will pour in and the praises will definitely go up. 2 Timothy 4:3-4  For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. (NIV) Now, this is not to say that God does not want our praise, worship and admiration.  This is not to say that God is not in the blessing business and will not prosper His people. However, as in the Days of Noah, all of this is going to cease. Mathew 24:37-39  As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. (NIV) There is a time of judgment that is quickly approaching America that many Christians are unprepared for because of their lack of studying the scriptures for themselves and being lead blindly by leaders who only care to pump them up instead of prepare them for the trouble that is about to take place. Some leaders may not know or understand the trouble that is approaching, but for those who do, the blood of many will be on their hands. 
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will what their actions deserve. (NIV)
These words, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation—at least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of non-believers,” were spoken by our commander and chief, Barrack Hussein Obama on June 28, 2006.  Yes, our commander and chief no longer considers us a Christian nation. Maybe he never did and just wanted to ensure that other nations knew that we have allowed the nation to be overrun by godlessness and self-serving men such as himself. A leader who is more concerned about the sensitivity of the Muslim brotherhood than of Christ. A leader who is will allow innocent children to be murdered at alarming rates rather than protect the lives of the innocent. A leader, under whose administration has allowed for God’s blessing of marriage between that of a man and woman, to become against the norm, and for our country to become even more like Sodom and Gomorrah due to the passing of gay marriage laws. Jude 1:7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality an perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (NIV)

            I am not saying that he is the only leader that we have had who has helped to take God out of our nation, but he is delivering quite effectively the promise of change that his campaign ran off of—sorry to say, that change has been for the worse. You may say, “I got a free government phone. I have healthcare. The troops came home. There are more educational programs and funding.” Well, let’s not be deceived. Where the devil gives, he also corrupts. You may have gotten a free government phone, but you are under constant surveillance, therefore, your phone isn’t free. You may have healthcare, but written in the fine print is the allotment for RFID chips (Mark of the Beast) to be inserted into your body, and Christian organizations, whose beliefs are against birth control, are being forced to offer it. The troops may have come home, but new fires (wars) are popping up all over the place, therefore, the troops will never be in peace. You may have more educational benefits, but your children are being taught that they have to accept the likes of homosexuality and anyone who opposes it is considered to be a bigot. Is this what God wanted for our nation to become? Jeremiah 12:17 “But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it,” declares the Lord. (NIV) America is going to be judged!
            Let’s look at some of the Godlessness that is being allowed in our nation.

1.)  The demonic Grammy Award’s Show that was aired this year, 2014.

There were many instances of devil worship that took place on the show this year and it is only getting worse.            Beyonce, Jay-z, and the likes did performances celebrating their Illuminati themes and demonic possessions. Queen Latifa was appointed to marry gay and straight couples as their opening ceremony mocked the very essence of the church and God. Sad to say, but only 1 Christian was made mention of leaving that night, due to following her conscious, because of the ungodliness that was taking place. This is sad because every Christian present should have followed suit. Okay, I know that some of you will say that you are to witness to the world. Yes, this is true. However, let’s be real! The awards show is for glamour, prestige, and performance. No one is giving a sermon. No one is hearing the Word. And even if they hear you perform a gospel song, most are only there for a performance and not to receive Jesus. There are many ways to witness where the devil is not hosting. So to keep it real, Christians who go to this type of event, knowing what will take place so they can receive worldly awards and recognition, are falling into the trap of the enemy. Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (NIV)

2.)  Chaplains in the military banned from using the phrase, “In Jesus name” at the end of prayers.

November 14, 2013/ 11:36 p.m.
Two California military chaplains have filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs after they claim that they were forced out of a training program by an instructor who antagonized them for their Christian beliefs. (You can find more on this story at:
The two chaplains disagreed with the instructor saying that there was more than one path to heaven and using Bible verses and praying in Jesus’ name. The lawsuits are still underway. This is only one instance where Christians are coming under fire for their beliefs in the military.

3.)    Satan Baphomet may be placed next to Ten Commandment monument.

According to an article on Christian Today, a Satanic Temple is petitioning to have a Satanic Baphomet placed next to the Ten Commandments on the Oklahoma Capital’s lawn. They feel that if Christians can have their monuments, then so can they. They received over $28, 000 in donations to build this monument. They say that the monument represents our country being a pluralist nation built upon secular law. Their desire to erect this monument is only to be in opposition of the Ten Commandments that were placed on the capitals lawn in 2012. However, they would agree to disband the idea of the monument if the Ten Commandments’ monument is removed. You can find more on this at: (
The devil has always wanted to be like and imitate the things of God.
Isaiah 14:13-14 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” (NIV)

Obama Administration support Homosexual Marriage and has redefined the definition of “marriage.”
a.) Record number of homosexual appointments made by any U.S.        president.
b.) May 19, 2009--Kevin Jennings, founder of Gay, Lesbian, and          Straight Education Network (GLESN) admitted to covering up a        case of sexual abuse when working as a teacher--to Department      of Education. 
c.) Encouraged subversion of Federal Marriage Law April 14, 2010.      (Encouraged homosexual couples to report themselves as                  married in defiance of Defense of Marriage Act.
d.) Celebrated role of lesbian mothers on Mother's Day May 7,              2010.
e.) Extended benefit of homosexual partners June 2, 2010.
f.) Praised homosexual fathers on Father's Day, June 18, 2010.
g.) Reversed military homosexual policies December 22, 2010.
h.) Ended cross-dressing in workplace May 27, 2011.
i.) Endorsed redefinition of marriage May 9, 2011.

          There is much, much more that is affecting our country due to the Godlessness taking place. However, due to this being a blog, I will have to pick this subject up and continue it at another time. I recommend that if you want to know more about what is taking place in our country, pick up the book, "Godless America" by Todd Starnes available in Walmart and It goes into extensive details about what is taking place within our nation and the judgment that will befall us because of the evil that has befallen our nation. I pray that you are saved and do not be deceived by those who do not wish to teach the truth. I pray that you study for yourself and past the word on to others so that you and they will be prepared for what is inevitable--which is the judgment of America and Jesus' imminent return.

Gold Diggers vs. Goal Builders

1 Timothy 6:10 for the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (NKJV)

A few years ago, musical artists Kanye West and Jamie Foxx made a song titled, “Gold Digger.” The lyrics go like this:

She takes my money when I’m in need
Yeah she’s a trifling friend indeed
Oh she’s a gold digger way over town
That digs on me.

          What is a Gold Digger? According to Google, a gold digger is a person who dates others purely to extract money from them, in particular a woman who strives to marry a wealthy man. There have been numerous women who have married much older men and have been accused of marrying them only for the sake of obtaining financial security. Although, this may be true, little is often said about the man who proposed to her. The women are often looked down on and scrutinized by the public because of their wealthy boyfriends and/or husbands. However, when it is in reverse, the woman is looked at as a cougar and the male (even though classified as a gigolo) is often not criticized. 

          Now many women may feel that there is nothing wrong with using the assets that God gave them to secure their future even if that means marrying a much older man. It may make one wonder if there is anything wrong with it in God’s eyes. Should women not seek security from a man or ensure that a man has his things in order prior to beginning a relationship with him? Is what many call being a “Gold Digger” nothing more than just ensuring that a life of poverty is a distant past? Could it be that society has changed in such a way where the expectations of a female being independent has changed with regards to traditional roles and therefore, the man is no longer expected to be a provider for the household? Let’s take a look from the Bible’s perspective. 

Genesis 2:15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. (NKJV) When we read the story of creation, we find that God had a work for man to do PRIOR to giving him a wife. Adam had to tend to the garden and name all the creatures that God had created. He did not give him the wife first, but God made sure that Adam had a JOB first. I view this to say that God intended for men to have themselves secure prior to finding a wife. That means if a man didn’t work and wasn’t able to support his family, he did not need to look for a wife until his affairs were in order. 

          Now some men may think that women need to have jobs as well prior to becoming involved with them. This is why many women get the title “Gold Diggers” because their ambition may have only been to find a rich man and settle down. Okay, well let’s address this. Is there anything wrong with a woman working? Absolutely not! As a matter of fact, this is how Ruth met Boaz in the Bible. Ruth 2:2 So Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, “Please let me go to the field, and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favor.” And she said to her, “Go, my daughter.” (NKJV) Ruth 2:6-8 So the servant who was in charge of the reapers answered and said, “It is the young Moabite woman who came back with Naomi from the country of Moab. And she said, ‘Please let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves.’ So she came and has continued from morning until now, though she rested a little in the house.” Then Boaz said to Ruth, “You will listen, my daughter, will you not? Do not go to glean in another field which they reap, and go after them. Have I not commanded the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink from what the young men have drawn.” (NKJV) Ruth went to work when she left her land and followed Naomi. In the process of working was when she met her future husband. She did not wait for a man to take care of her and Naomi. She took the initiative to go to work so that she could support the two of them. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with women working prior to getting the mate God has for them.

          Now, some men feel that they should receive certain services from women, while not being required to spend any money. Let me just say this, Women need to keep the "store" closed until there is a ring on it and a marriage license. Therefore, you will not feel that your services are not being appreciated through means of green. Second, Men, stop expecting freebies and keep your zippers closed if you don't want to give monetary gifts. If you don't want to pay when you "exit" the "store" then you need not "enter" it. Some women feel that men should "pay-as-they-go." Therefore, MEN, don't apply for credit if you're filing for bankruptcy. 


          The problem in today’s time is that people want to have the benefits of a relationship without putting the work into it. They want to live good, dress nice, and have the trophy on their arms just because of outside beauty. However, there is nothing wrong with wanting someone who has the same goals and aspirations as you such as college educated, good job or entrepreneur, nice transportation, and home. The problem lies with being materialistic and not goal oriented. Materials come and go, but goals obtained can last and be the foundation of a great relationship. If your goal is only to benefit off of the success of someone else, then you are a Gold Digger. However, if you wish to add to someone’s success based on what you can contribute to that relationship, spiritually, financially, and emotionally—just to name a few, then you are a Goal Builder. When choosing someone as a lifelong partner, first consult God, then allow Him to lead you in the selection process. God will give you the person with the right Goals to help you add or build on to the Gold.
