Spiritual Warfare

          It is fun to go to a church service that has all the trimmings. A place where you can feel the beat of the music and a preacher who tells you how God is going to supply everything you ever wanted. All the money you could want, never having a day of sickness, the new car you have had an eye on, as well as that new house that's the pride of the neighborhood is a distortion of the Gospel[1]. The Bible says to always test the Spirits.

          As you leave the church, climb into your old junker and drive to the run down house you live in, you try to decide if you can afford both gas and a six pack of Pepsi. Quietly and tenderly you say to yourself: why can't I have the lifestyle the preacher was talking about.

          I am not saying that there are not Christians who are well off, but I am saying that the love of money is the root of all evil. The money is not evil, the love obsession with it is. Seek ye first, the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you. Too many churches today, are teaching that God "wants you to have it now". What good would it do to have all the things you want, if you don't have the ability to keep them? "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world's darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."[2] How are you going to keep what you've got, after you've got what you want, if no one has taught you how to do battle. Feel good preaching is not the "full Council Of God".

          You know that church down the street? Not the one you have been going to, that is so lavishly decorated. Where the building is in need of repair? You might give it a try. It just might have a preacher who teaches the complete council of God. Sometimes the Holy Spirit of God works better in a less raucous atmosphere. Rock bands are for concerts and celebratory church services. If you are seeking the direction that the Lord has for you, what is needed is an open heart, and a teachable soul, and the quiet, gentle presence of God's Holy Spirit. 

          Yes, you are going to have a perfected body and all the things you could want. Freedom from disease, despair, lack of pain and tears. All you have to do is die: that is if you are a born again Christian. Otherwise you will be jumping from the frying pan, into the fire. Once you pass over to eternal life, this is your reward. "I believe the best explanation I have heard came from a bible teacher who said that we get sick because of sin, and also because there are germs in the air.  We will not live in a perfect world until after the return of Jesus."[3] 

          Let's consider the lives of the early Christians. You see what is going on in the mid-east. That's part of the early Christian experience.  Study what the lives of the apostles were like[4]. Only one died of old age, and that was after he spent time banished to the Isle of Patmos. Genocide is being waged on our Christian Brothers and sisters around the world.

          If you really listen to what the voices of the democrat and republican  parties are saying, you will see that they have no idea what the American people are really like. It is a real shame that the 10 percent of the country that is progressive, has silenced the liberals of ancient history. In the 50's and early 60's the liberals were still dedicated Americans. The progressives snuck in due to the apathy of the majority of the people, both left and right. Not recognizing the difference allowed the Globalists (secular humanist New World Order folks) to usurp the ideals of the liberals. One of the sure signs of a corrupted liberal is that they don't admit they stand by their democrat platform. Even a quick read of the DNC platform will show that no decent person would want to be associated with it.
          God cannot be included in this liberal/progressive/new world order  movement, because the constitution and the Bible are diametrically apprised to it. Pay close attention to the wording used and the innuendo implied when they make their political points. Political correctness is Lucifer's way of silencing godly people.

          There really is a war raging within the boarders of our country. It is a spiritual war. The forces of good, verses the forces of evil. Ex president Obama has set up a shadow government to try to bring down President Trumps presidency.  UNREAL! Obama has an army of tens of thousands of paid instigators attempting to destroy Donald Trump's presidency according to a new report! What more proof do we need that Obama is committing acts of treason? This is a video that everyone should see.[5]  Lou Dobbs : Paul Sperry - Obama's 'shadow government' is organizing to sabotage Trump. This is not a conspiracy theory, it is a full blown conspiracy of the New World Order.

          "When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change."[6]

          Keep in mind that Obama is the only president in history to make the ridiculous statement that our country was not a Christian nation. For all of you who reject even the slightest inference that God is in control, please do not call on me as a character witness when you are standing before the Great White Throne Judgment.

          "It's interesting that the media, which got everything wrong, will now tell you all the things that will happen as a result of the thing that they said would never happen."[7]

"The Catholic Archbishop of Erbil has denounced the hypocrisy of those protesting President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration, wondering aloud where all of the demonstrators were when Islamic State fighters were slaughtering Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.
In an interview with the online journal Crux, Archbishop Bashar Warda said that from his perspective in Iraq, he couldn’t help but ask “why all of these protesters were not protesting in the streets when ISIS came to kill Christians and Yazidis and other minority groups.”
Warda also criticized the policies of the Obama administration, which offered no financial assistance to displaced Christians in Islamic State territory and instead favored Syrian Muslims when it came to accepting refugees into the United States.
“They were not protesting when the tens of thousands of displaced Christians my archdiocese has cared for since 2014 received no financial assistance from the U.S. government or the U.N.,” he said. “There were no protests when Syrian Christians were only let in at a rate that was 20 times less than the percentage of their population in Syria.”
“I do not understand why some Americans are now upset that the many minority communities that faced a horrible genocide will finally get a degree of priority in some manner,” Warda added.
The archbishop also suggested that the inconvenience posed by a three-month moratorium on visas is nothing compared to the suffering of minorities in Iraq and Syria during the past several years, and yet no one seemed to think that was worthy of a protest.
“Most Americans have no concept of what it was like to live as a Yazidi or Christian or other minority as ISIS invaded,” he said. “Our people had the option to flee, to convert, or to be killed, and many were killed in the most brutal ways imaginable.”
“But there were none of these protests then of ISIS’s religious test,” he said.
In his lengthy interview, Warda underscored the hypocrisy of protesters who are willing to side with Muslims but won’t lift a finger to aid Christians facing genocide in the Middle East.
“Our people lost everything because of their faith—they were targeted for their faith, just like the Yazidis and others too,” he said. “Now these protesters are saying that religion should not matter at all, even though someone was persecuted for their faith, even though persecution based on religion is one of the grounds for refugee status in the UN treaty on refugees.”
“From here I have to say, it is really unbelievable,” he said.
Warda also blasted the careless journalists who have called the order a “Muslim ban,” noting that this label is not only false but also dangerous to Christians and other minorities living in lands dominated by Islamic terrorists.
“All those who cry out that this is a ‘Muslim Ban,’” Warda said, should understand clearly that they are hurting Christians and “putting us at greater risk.”
“Here in Iraq we Christians cannot afford to throw out words carelessly as the media in the West can do,” he added. “I would ask those in the media who use every issue to stir up division to think about this.”
“For the media these things become an issue of ratings, but for us the danger is real,” he said.
The Archbishop said “it is very hard for me to understand why comfortable people in the West think those who are struggling to survive against genocide, and whose communities are at extreme risk of disappearing completely, should not get some special consideration.”
“We are an ancient people on the verge of extinction because of our commitment to our faith. Will anybody protest for us?” he asked."

          "U.S. included in top 12 nations where Christians experience persecution.The list is divided into three categories, The Christian Post reported. The countries that are deemed "worst of the worst" include Nigeria, Iraq and Syria due to the rise of Islamic extremism and terrorist attacks. North Korea is also included in the category for its ongoing crackdown against Christians.
The "core" countries, where Christians are often suppressed and targeted by blasphemy laws, include India, China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In India, ICC has documented over 272 attacks on Christians and churches in the first nine months of 2016. Saudi Arabia takes the "lead place" in the category for its part in funding radical Islamic movements globally.
The U.S., Russia and Mexico are listed as "new and noteworthy" nations where Christian persecution is on the rise.
"We felt it was very important this year that we highlight three countries where religious discrimination and persecution are deemed unusual but have reached a certain threshold of concern. These are Mexico, Russia, and sadly, the United States," said ICC president Jeff King."[8]
          Chanting "kill the cops", "pigs go home", "kill the rich", burning the flag, spraying the cops with paint and pepper spray. THESE ARE NOT DEMONSTRATORS - These are criminal rioters. Assault is a crime and these rioters are guilty of it. The people behind the scenes should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Progressives like Soros need to be stopped, just like their army of useful idiots.

          The politics of division is one of Lucifer's favorite tricks. Two of his favorite useful idiots are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Neither Trump, nor his supporters, are against immigrants. The key word liberals ALWAYS leave out is "Illegal" immigrants. Every nation has the right, even more a "duty," to protect their borders for the safety and security of the citizens of that nation; otherwise, they will no longer be a nation. Open borders is the goal of GLOBALISTS, or rather One Worlders.

          In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”[9] This guy claims to be the one who speaks for God on earth. To make the uneducated statement that Islam is a religion of peace is unbelievable. Robbery, murder, and slavery are among the things called for in the Koran.[10]

1. Is not courageous! To stand in agreement with mankind is easy, for it is the "route of least resistance." Taking a stand with God, as Jesus said, as He was hated and persecuted, so would those be who stand with Him.
2. Not believing in gay marriage doesn't make one anti gay; it makes one "for God," and agreeing with God's right to have authority over man.
3. Sexual immorality, whether it is of a heterosexual or homosexual form, is still sin, and sin will always bring harm to your life.
4. Jesus is full of mercy and grace. He offers forgiveness to those who seek Him. All are called, But not all will answer the call to receive His forgiveness.
5. Many will reject Jesus and His word, thinking they know more and better than God, the one who created the world and all that is in it.
6. God does give every man the free will to choose for themselves to believe in Him and His word, or to reject Him and His word.
7. All have sinned and fallen short of the mark.
8. Jesus did not teach us to love sin or declare evil to be good. He has taught us to love the sinner, but not the sin.
Each of us must choose: either "God's word is true to all generations & He alone sets the absolute standards of right & wrong,
There are no absolute standards of right and wrong, but all things are 'relative' and man can decide for himself what is or isn't sin, as it suits man's conveniences if man is wiser than God."[11]

          If you choose relativism, do you really think that you, out of all of the people in the history of the earth, are going to escape the penalty for rejection of God?           

          There are those "Christians" who either don't study scripture enough or don't understand scripture, who are mislead to the point the Bible says will believe the lie. These are separate from those in the apostate church. These are the people who will stand in front of Jesus, ashamed of their actions, who thought they were doing God's will, because they believed the lie.
          There are radical movements in our country, such as the KKK, the Skin Heads, the White Supremacist's, the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and others. The progressives do their best to paint all of our citizens as being part of these groups.

          Just as an example, these are some of the sponsors of the "Woman's March" in Washington, DC. Pro life women were not allowed to march.
American Humanist Organization
Planned Parenthood
Amnesty International
NARAL Pro-choice America
American Atheists
Code pink
Communist Party USA
Council on American Islamic Relations
Democratic Socialists of America
National Abortion Federation
Transgender Law Center
Occupy Wall Street
More than 56 sponsors, of the Women's March on Washington, were organizations that receive funding from George Soros.

          The religions of progressivism, secular humanism, global climate change, evolution, environmentalism, and globalism surround us. We must realize that all of these movements are designed by Lucifer, to distract and confuse God's people.

          Hopefully,2016 will be the year looked on where the progressive movement was summarily rejected by the American people. The 2016 election was the final event, in the grass roots movement, to renew our country and to restore the country to what God intended.

          God has given us what I believe is our last chance for revival. 
By His miracle, of the election of Trump and Pence, two Born Again Christians, to lead us in these last days, it becomes our duty to present the plan of Salvation to as many as possible in the time left.
