A Timely Warning

          Do you realize that there are many in this world looking forward to the downfall of the United States of America?  The Lord is in the process of lifting the hedge of protection He placed over us, because of our rejection of Him.  911 was a shot across our bow (in the navy, a shot across the bow of a ship was a warning of impending danger).  The economy is the second sign that the hedge is missing, or at least being lifted.  Over the years, it seems obvious that many politicians, and other subversive groups (such as the ‘ACLU’ and ‘Freedom from Religion’), over the years, have purposely seen to it that our Godly country has moved farther and farther from its foundations.  Jealously, envy, demonic influence, and greed may be the reasons why the ungodly are against us.

          Those who believed that they knew better than God and our founding fathers didn’t have a hammer to hold over us, until the 1940’s.  A position paper was presented to the Supreme Court by a member of the ACLU misquoting the words and intentions of Thomas Jefferson.  Thus was established the doctrine of “separation of church and state”.  Our country, and its relationship with God, was never intended to be separated.  Even cursory research into the writings of our founding fathers establishes this fact.  The very foundations of our country were based on God and His principals.  Truthfully, without the principles of God in our laws, there is no reason to obey them.  What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.[1]

          As I have said before: “Jesus is an absolutist and so am I.  There is nothing wrong in believing in absolutes as long as you are sure that the absolute you believe in is absolutely true.  Yes there are such things as absolutes and facts that cannot be disputed.” “There is a lot of distortion, misrepresentation, political correctness, misdirected information and revisionist history as well as blatant lying being heaped on us from all directions.  As far as I can tell this is all coming from those who want God out of our lives and to bring about fundamental changes to our country.”[2] 

          If we don’t put godly men in office, we will be lost entirely.  Our nation without doubt, by those who have studied it’s founding, realize that God had the guiding hand in setting the course for our country.  We have, slowly but surely, removed God from the marketplace of ideas, our schools, our daily walk and our hearts.  Our Constitution was founded on the Declaration of Independence and the Declaration of Independence was founded on the Bible; under the inapiration of the Lord. 

          The Bible was presupposed to be the document most revered by our founders.  The Bible was the book that was read by anyone who could read and the founding of our school system was for the ability of our citizens to be able to read and study it.  We can see from the early writings that biblical reference was an everyday occurrence in conversation and literature, even the deists of the day spoke of the Bible in reference to government as well as daily life.  To not have the Bible taught in school is a slap in the face of our founders; both the religious and those who were not.  The Continental Congress, in 1777, directed the Committee of Congress to import twenty thousand copies of the Bible, “the great textbook of patriots”[3][4]

          The insidious movement to the left started long ago in the Wilson administration, although some of the roots go back to Teddy Roosevelt.  These people with their extreme leftist outlook have worked their way into the educational system to the point that most young people have no idea what this country is supposed to be.  One example of this is that many people believe the lie of “separation of church and state”.  A lot of people think that it’s in the constitution.  Ask most young people if this is a Christian nation and they will answer no, despite the fact that we were set up as a Christian nation, which was confirmed by the Supreme Court.[5] 

          A revival of the truth is absolutely necessary to set us, once again, on the right track.  Regardless of your political leanings or your overall world view, you will be subject to the lessening and diminishment of your freedoms and lifestyle, caused by the rejection of the Lord.     

          “Anyone who cares to research the facts will find that the Bible, and Christianity, was the foundation of our nation as well as our schools.  Just as the Israeli’s wandered from God on a regular basis, we in the United States have done the same thing, although it took somewhat longer.  Each time the Israeli’s were restored to good standing with God when they repented.  We in the United Stated are in great need of repentance because of our separation from God.[6]  We have what we have because of the God of the Bible, but we won’t retain it without Him.”[7] 

          Do you think you can be a born again Christian and play with the new age movement at the same time?  There is only one way to salvation and one way to stay in the good graces of the Lord.  If you choose to reject the salvation of Jesus you can still be blessed by the Lord for the way you live your life: you simply won’t get into Heaven.  Helping your fellow man, protecting children (born and unborn), feeding the hungry and loving your neighbor as yourself are all parts of a lifestyle that pleases the Lord.  You simply can’t work your way into heaven, which would give you a reason to boast.  By faith, and not by works, we are saved.

          In order to accomplish their goals, they must discredit both God and our founders.  Just look at the record of Marxism (Socialism, Communism, Progressivism or whatever you want to label it), and you will find the history of death and destruction it has caused.  ”Government is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”[8]  Our Marxist friends are trying to accomplish the task of changing our government from servant to master.  The United States and its Capitalist system may not be perfect, but it is undoubtedly superior to anything else devised by the mind of man.  One of the biggest lies being told is that we are a democracy.  We are a republic, not a democracy.  I won’t go into the details of the differences here.  Suffice it to say that democracy is no better than mob rule. "Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."[9][10]

          Thomas Jefferson said, in essence, that if the people with little to loose ever found out how to vote themselves that which belongs to others would cause the foundations on which this country is based to shrivel and fall.  This in my opinion was why this country was set up as a republic rather then a democracy.  We, for instance, are not guaranteed happiness, but rather the pursuit of happiness.  We are not guaranteed success in business, life or love, but rather have the right to try.  In our country, stupid politicians and other career government officials apparently have decided that the pursuit of their happiness takes preeminence over the welfare of our country, our citizens and our constitution.  Many of these people have never had a real job or have spent very little time in providing for themselves and their families.  Those who have been nurturing at the fount of government plenty have, in their infinite wisdom, decided that they know better than we how we should live our lives.  This has been referred to as big brother.  As I have said in the past, our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principals and removal of these principals destroys the country.[11]

          I guess it could be said that I show anger in my rants.  I would rather refer to this condition as righteous indignation.  When I see that there are those who are out to steal, kill and destroy, it is a call to action and these rants are that action.  I am not saying that we are at the point where we need to use force of arms.  “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government,”[12]  The vote is by far the best method of retaliation against those who would destroy the country.  “If we don’t use our freedoms to fight for our freedoms we will loose our freedoms.[13][14]

          Remember the words of the Preamble to our Constitution?   Note, it does not say ‘we the politicians, the government, the President, the Supreme Court, or the United Nations’.  It says, “We the people of the United States”.

The Declaration of Independence established the basis for our country and the Constitution states how it should be run.[15] 

          "To the distinguished Character of Patriot, it should be our highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian. The signal instances of providential Goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labors with complete Success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of Gratitude and Piety to the Supreme Author of all Good."[16]

          When I say God, those who know me know I mean God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  When our founding fathers said, God, our Creator, Providence and other terms, everyone knew which God they were referring to.  In those days, faith and Bible knowledge were part of every day life.  Just as ignorance of the law is no excuse, ignorance of our heritage is no excuse.  The truth of our heritage is available to anyone who cares to seek it.  Not the revionist history that our children are taught in the government indoctrination centers known as public school, but history based on the original documents.[17]  Our government was not set up to keep God out of our decision process.  In truth, our founders intended God to be an integral part of political life. 

          We can’t expect to long reap the benefits of God if we reject Him at every turn.  “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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”[18] There is nothing new under the sun, but, we must realize that we are all under the Son. 

          My wife has greater wisdom than I do.  When I get all upset about what I see happening, she reminds me that these things must take place before the Lord can return.  Isn’t it amazing how the Lord provides for us in our hours of need?  We don’t like to see what is happening all around us, and yet it may all be part of the plan.  I can’t see where the United States is mentioned in the end time writings of the Bible.  Perhaps what we now see happening will continue, and diminish us to a point of insignificance in those times.  If that is what must be –so be it.[19]
