America's Future

          Some explanation is necessary before I begin this rant.  First of all, Replacement Theology is not based on a true interpretation of scripture, but rather a distorted rendering that is made to fit the plans and wishes of men.  For one thing, it asserts that the Church replaced the Jews because of Jesus.  Jesus said that He had not come to destroy the scriptures, but rather to fulfill them.  A covenant of God is irreversible, irrevocable and stands forever.  An example of this is when the Lord said He would give the Promised Land to the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as an inheritance forever.  Jesus did not negate this promise to the house of Israel, but rather confirmed it.  The Lord looks on replacement theology as prostitution[1].  An example of innocent blood being spilled would be abortion on demand.  Making our people financial slaves of the state would be the government taking control of various industries and healthcare along with making us dependent on the government for our subsistence through entitlement programs.  The banishment of ‘The Lord God Almighty’ from the public discourse has been taking place slowly but surely for the better part of the last fifty years.  The right of free speech and religion seem to be the major stumbling block to the progressives.  If the foundations of our republic, such as our rights and freedoms can be treated as if they were granted by the government, rather than as is the case are granted by God, they can be taken away by the government.


          As I write this, I fully expect to be ridiculed as in the days of the Lord’s prophets.  When they brought word from the Lord that the people didn’t like, they were ostracized and beaten.  They were ridiculed and killed because they trusted in the Lord.  “O LORD, you persuaded me, and I was persuaded; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long;
everyone mocks me.  Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction.  So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long. But if I say, “I will not mention Him or speak any more in His name,” His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones.  I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”[2]    It’s not that I am a prophet of the Lord, but rather one who has recognized the error of our ways.  As the ‘Chosen People’ (the Israelites) of the Lord fell into and out of the favor of the Lord, we too have removed His protection form our country because we have abandoned the foundations, inspired by God, of our nation.


          Just as the ‘Chosen People’ went astray and worshiped man made gods, we have abandoned the Lord to worship the man made gods of progressivism, Socialism and Marxism.  Replacement Theology(including Black Liberation Theology, collective salvation and social justice), the shedding of innocent blood, making the people financial slaves of the state and denying that it was the Lord that set this country on the right course as a Judeo-Christian nation are what the rest of the world touts, as well as our own political leaders.  Even those professing to be Christian, such as Rev. Jeremiah Wright (the president’s former pastor of 20 years), Rev. Jim Wallace, the president’s current spiritual advisor and even the Catholic Church, along with the lack of the commitment of many of the main line denominational churches, have run away from the ‘One True and Living God’.  If you don’t believe in what He has said, then you don’t believe in Him.


          The president’s men are false prophets.  “The doctrine of Replacement Theology makes God a liar. It is a heresy that is straight from the pit of hell.”[3]  The following are some examples of this abomination.


1. “There are 2500 verses in the King James Bible about poor people.  One time in seminary we cut out of the Bible every reference to poor people, every single one; it took us a long, long time, when we were done that Bible was in shreds. It was falling apart; it was literally in holes….a Bible full of holes.  I would take it out and say brothers and sisters this is the American Bible, it’s full of holes.”[4]  Rev. Jim Wallace said this; he believes in income redistribution as well as other non Biblical teachings.

2. Rev. Jeremiah Wright seems to hate our country.  He, despite all the evidence to the contrary, espouses Black Liberation theology (the theology of the Black Panthers), social justice and collective salvation.

3. “We Christians cannot speak of the Promised Land as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people.  This promise was nullified by Christ.” “There is no longer a chosen people – all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people.”[5]  I can’t think of a better example of revionist theology than this.  We Christian’s have not displaced the Jews but rather have been joined to them, grafted into the vine, through Christ.  “The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”[6]


          “Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.  They make you worthless; they speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of the LORD. They continually say to those who despise Me, ‘the LORD has said, “You shall have peace”’; And to everyone who walks according to the dictates of his own heart, they say, ‘No evil shall come upon you.’” For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD, and has perceived and heard His word?  Who has marked His word and heard it?”[7] “Thus every one of you shall say to his neighbor, and every one to his brother, ‘What has the LORD answered?’ and, ‘What has the LORD spoken?’  And the oracle of the LORD you shall mention no more. For every man’s word will be his oracle, for you have perverted the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God.”[8] 


          Do not listen to what the politicians tell you. They will tell you that we Christian’s need to be more open minded.  As far as I can see; those people’s minds are so open that their brains have fallen out. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man puts forth, that shall he also receive back.”[9]  “Proper respect for the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but those that are morally deficient despise wisdom and discipline.”[10]  Try being informed instead of just opinionated.  


          His people, whom He established in the United States of America, have sinned against Him.  They have worshiped the gods of Progressivism, Socialism and Marxism.  Therefore, He has turned His back on them.  However, “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.”[11]  How long this will take will depend on the motivation of our hearts.  Lip service will not be enough.  The Lord can see into your heart and knows your thoughts.   “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the LORD.”[12]  “I, the LORD, search the heart; I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”[13]


          “I warned you when you felt secure, but you said, ‘I will not listen!’
This has been your way from your youth; you have not obeyed me.”[14]  We have had things so good for so long we became complacent. 


          Because the Lord deals with us individually as well as nationally we still have the hope of salvation.  We may not be able to get our nation saved but we can, through Jesus, get ourselves saved.  We do not have to suffer throughout eternity for the sins of our nation.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”[15]  The world can be saved; however, it is done one person at a time.  There is no such thing as collective salvation.  To say that Jesus is the only way to the Father and Heaven is not hate speech but rather an invitation that is open to anyone willing to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.  In addition to the individual salvation, we need to get our nation healed.  This we cannot do without the cooperation of our politicians.  In the Old Testament, the Lord punished or withdrew his protection from a nation based on the actions of its leaders.  How long will the Lord contend with a wicked people like we have become?  The Philistines are within the gates of our government.  We must expel them.  Because of this, we need to turn to Him as a nation in mind and deed.  It seems that this will be difficult since our president says we are not a Christian nation.  It is my belief that he has no idea of what a Christian nation is, much less what a Born Again Christian is.  It would seem that since the president surrounds himself with like minded people as advisors, we may need a new administration before we can request justice from the Lord.  Although the Lord didn’t promise us a rose garden, he has given us one.  Perhaps we should take better care of the garden by removing the thorns (the godless), and the weeds (the progressives).  “The respect of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”[16]


“Be still. Be patient. Wait for the Lord to act.  Don't be upset when other people succeed.  Don't be upset when they carry out their evil plans. Keep from being angry. Turn away from anger.  Don't be upset. That only leads to evil. Sinful people will be cut off from the land.  But it will be given to those who put their hope in the Lord.  In a little while, there won't be any more sinners.  Even if you look for them, you won't be able to find them.  But those who are free of pride will be given the land. They will enjoy great peace.  Sinful people make plans to harm those who do what is right. They grind their teeth at them. But the Lord laughs at those who do evil. He knows the day is coming when He will judge them.”  Remember that the Lord is in control and He doesn’t want us to resort to violence.  He does want us to pray and to take our rightful part in our government.  Use the Vote instead of the fist.  If you are slapped on one cheek, turn the other.  I know that the progressives have said they would use violence and that the Socialists and Marxist have been responsible for the deaths of millions but they are no match for our God. 


          Remember that where sin abounds, righteousness does more abound.  In the sixties the hippie movement (Progressives) caused a lot of contention in our country.  At the same time there was another movement called the Jesus people.  Throughout His Story, His people have repeatedly gone astray.  Each time however; when the people returned to the Lord, they were restored.  When the Rapture takes place, if I am still alive, I want to do what Mike Warnkie said he was going to do – grab a heathen in both hands and when I reach 40,000 feet ask them if they believe in Jesus. 


          How long the Lord will wait for us to return to His values I do not know.  How long we have left on this earth I have no idea.  I do know that the Lord is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  I also know that he would not like anyone to perish or be lost to the Devil.  I do know that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.  Our trials help us to grow in the Lord.  The progressives may be a test from the Lord.  We proved that our faith was strong enough to overcome the progressives in the 1930’s; let’s see if our faith is strong enough today.
