Recognition of Today

          “They asked Jesus, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? And what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
 And he said, Take heed that you are not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draw near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation (ethnos), and kingdom (country) against kingdom (country): And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, and deliver you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.”[1] “All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”[2]

          While watching “Doo Wop generation” on PBS, I realized that it was the generation just before America lost its soul. The progressive movement had been working, insidiously in the back ground since the 1920’s. Part of that movement was to change Rock And Roll to Rock. The effect of the change from Doo Wop to Mick Jagger was to wash away the morality of our youth. It is easy to trace the moral and spiritual decline that started in the sixties. these are the beginning of sorrows.

Political Correctness    
            Tolerance leads to more tolerance, to more and more tolerance, until there are no standards left. Our country was tolerant of other religions and even atheism entering into our country. We had no idea that our tolerance would lead to us loosing much of our religious freedom. This is not conjecture, this is fact. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
This should be read and understood by all Americans Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To all 535 voting members of the Legislature
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years 
to get it right and it is broke. 
b... Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it 
right and it is broke. 
c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right 
and it is broke.
d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; 
$1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the 
poor" and they only want more..
e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years 
to get it right and they are broke.
f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence 
on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey .. And now Pakistan ......previous home of binLaden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour 
Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries! We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. 
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?”[3]

Tech explosion  
          It is estimated that over 70% of the world’s population have mobile devices. The liberal elites control the tech industry in the same way they control scientists, educators, the news media and Hollywood. Fear of isolation, job loss, not being hired, not advancing in the company and ridicule are all methods to keep them in line. Their politics and religious views are not welcome if they vary from the elites.
Our struggles are not with our fellow humans; they are with - 
1. Principalities that control governments
2. Powers – demonic spirits
3. Rulers of the darkness of this world – shadow government
4. Wicked spirits in high places
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another

Information explosion
          Knowledge is exploding exponentially. We will be able to watch the two witnesses in real time, anywhere in the world. ye shall hear of wars and commotions

A divided country and world
          Because we, and God, elected Donald Trump as our president; according to the prophets, all the powers of Hell have been unleashed upon us. Now do you realize that there only two powers at work in the world. Be sure to realize the consequences of deciding which side to be on.
There are many Christians who don't understand what God is doing with President Trump. Most Christians, an estimated 80 percent, have not studied enough, to show themselves approved. The Christian's, in our Christian country, have been sitting quietly in the pews, while our God given religious freedoms have been chiseled away, little by little. 
President Trump is the sign that the final "Great Awakening" has begun. 
The Globalist, Progressive, New World Order people (otherwise known as The Swamp), include republicans as well as democrats. President Trump is being judged, by the left, for the things he did when he was one of them. They liked his immoral behavior, his profanity and the money he used to buy politicians. Since these people haven't the faintest idea of what a Born Again experience is all about, they can not understand what has happened to him. Suffice it to say that, since his detractors don't understand him, they hate him. God said that would happen to us Christians in the end times. The anti Trumpers are as much fighting God as they are President Trump. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come Please remember that the democrats hated both of the only successful presidents we have had in the past 50 years. Both are/were loved by the average American (silent majority, forgotten man, middle class working American).
Both are/were married to classy, intelligent, stylish, independent thinking women). Both are/were men of the biblical God. Both men are/were friends of Israel. Both men are/were responsible for bringing the country back from horrible previous administrations. Both men are/were responsible for recovery of terrible economy’s. Both are/were hindered, in every way possible by the leftists. Both are/were hounded, unmercifully, by the Main Stream press. Both are/were loved by the average American and despised by the elitists .Both are/were successful in restoring America’s respect in the world. Both men’s detractors will hate the truth revealed here.

Deep state and liberal press  
          All nations now have Deep States and political swamps, because they are all demonically influenced to set up the New World Order. then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another

Consequences of mocking God                                                                
          There were 69 major earthquakes in the Pacific’s ring of fire, within 48 hours. If you don’t believe the New World Order, Socialist, leftist movement are responsible for the fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and multiple other tragedies, you need to read Eye To Eye, by William Koenig. 
Our treatment of
Israel, our killing of our children and many other immoral actions have brought God to the point of using horrific warnings to bring us into repentance. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences

Recently, Russia, China and Mongolia aligned with war games. Russia and China also had joint training operations. kingdom (country) against kingdom (country): Remember who the Bible says who is supposed to attack Israel from the north? How about a joint operation with Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Gog, Magog, Rosh, Meshech and Tubal?

Confusion in politics
          It may surprise many of you to hear that I don’t believe we have a two party political system. It is my studied opinion that we have a four party system, surrounded by a number of splinter groups. The political breakdown seems to be the Democrat Party, the Republican Party, independents and the New World Order advocates. The splinter groups would be the Black victims (Black Lives Matter, among others), the white supremacists, the Antifa type (anarchists included), and the died in the wool Socialist/Communist types. nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation (ethnos),

Dangers of equating dissension with hatred.
          In these times of political correctness, dissension or disagreement with the politically correct viewpoint or agenda is being used to demonize, marginalize, ostracize and eventually silence all those who refuse to walk in lock step with that agenda.  We can no longer have discussions of differing opinions based on the "gentleman's agreement" that we each have the right to "agree to disagree." Instead, now, anyone disagreeing with the PC agenda are depicted as haters, intolerant bigots, and persons who are of lower intelligence. Christians are depicted as persons who have a lack of sensitivity and  whose conscience has not yet been raised to come
into alliance with the prevalent standards of acceptable thought, which is determined by the thought police of the times.  So if you are in disagreement, you are necessarily declared to be both uncompassionate and unloving towards others.  
Example: because a Christian believes that God has said that adultery and homosexuality are sins, and they are to hate sin, the Christian then must not only hate the sin, but now also hates the sinner.  That is the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches.  Yet our secular society is demanding that we must, forget what God says about hating sin but loving the sinner; now we must, in order to be seen as loving others, according to PC standards, we must condone, accept, and celebrate the sin, as though it were both right and good.  Whoops, that which God has said was sin, is now, by mans' eraser, no longer sin.
     Watch out Jews and Christians, the concentration camps may soon be built, opened , and ready for business, and filled, not with Islamic jihadists, but with all, especially those dangerous Christian "terrorists," who
Insist on obeying their God, instead of obeying the much wiser wisdom and ideology of what is thought to be right and good in the eyes of man.  If The Lord tarries, it will be deemed as necessary, not only to silence us, but to remove our corrupting influence and perhaps eventually eradicate our very existence from society all together.  Is the readying of the furnaces once again, not in Germany, but right here in the U.S., in the near future?  Do you think it's not possible? Laws are already established which are laying the very foundations for the criminalization of the doctrines of our faith.  Christians may be increasingly persecuted and even martyred for no other reason than their faith, just as they are already in the Middle East, while the world watches and does nothing about it - just like Nazi Germany.  "Never Again?" I submit, it has already begun, and if you think not, you must be wearing blinders.[4] before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, and deliver you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake

The true progressive agenda for 2018/2020 is revealed by their own candidates. (Note: "Progressive" is a politically safe term substituted for Communist)
Impeach President Trump - Maxine Waters / six others 
Remove federal laws against Marijuana – Chuck Schumer
Abolish the 2nd amendment
Government paid medical insurance for all (paid for by ?)
Provide basic income for everyone whether they have  job or not – (Keith Ellison)
Open borders
Decriminalize sex crimes 
Sanctuary cities
Close prisons
Abolish ICE - (Matt Haggman and 10 others
Free college for everyone – What, to make up for what they didn’t learn in high school?
$15 per hour minimum wage
Reparations for slavery
Regulating pay disparities between CEOs and other employees. Not between average workers and politicians.
Unending amnesty for all illegals
Eliminate electoral college
Allow all residents to vote, regardless of citizenship
Take back tax reductions and raise corporate taxes by 40 percent
Jones-Wright Democrat candidate for District Attorney "has fully embraced his [Soros's] positions on
Decriminalizing sex crimes, closing jails and eliminating bail
The leadership of the democrat party have continually demonstrated their lack of morality and even common decency. Why would anyone want to be involved with such people? they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, and deliver you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake

Satan’s Power
          “We the people gave Satan the office of King of this world. That gives him legal rights since, HaShem gave it legally to man, man has the legal right to give it to the devil. The Devil now starts his war against HaShem. He can't get at HaShem so he goes after His creation. Creation not only is man, but earth, the planets and the air. And so it goes. As long as man continues to deny HaShemen mankind gives in to their base nature, they continue to worship the Devil and keep voting him in as king. So when you wonder why we have wars and plagues and cancer and child molestation and all the other stuff we blame HaShem for. We the G-d fears, can protect ourselves if we know how. We are not of this world, we are in the world to help those that are put in our pathway. So all you self proclaimed atheists and agnostics, the more you bitch and refuse to give HaShem entry through prayer, until Judgment is called and everyone including the devil will be judged, the human race will keep blaming HaShem and living their darkest nature. Boruch HaShem!”[5] Take heed that you are not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ
          Why would Satan concentrate so much of his efforts on the United States? The United States is the last bastion of Christian thinking left in the world. You will notice that I didn’t say last bastion of Christianity. My reasoning is that there is so little true, biblical Christianity, left in the United States that we probably can’t reasonably call ours a Christian nation any more. All of Europe is in its post Christian phase. The rest of the world has succumbed to one pagan religion or another, such as Islam. The United States is the last great military power left that can keep the world safe from tyranny. Therefore we can see that, realistically, the United States is the last stumbling block to Satan setting us his New World Order.

Outlawing Christianity
Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, just like Jesus said!
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake

          President Obama managed to drive wedges between the white and black communities, the police and black communities, the wealthy and the poor, we and nations that used to be our friends, world leaders and our leaders.  All of these divisions are directly attributable to Obama, who was the figure head of the progressive snake. then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold   You, who worry about Democrats versus Republicans --relax, here is our real problem.  In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.  However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen.  In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.  
 The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, "What makes a natural 
born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"
 The BLM and Antifa movements, and the political protestors in the streets we have seen recently, are prime examples of the failure of our schools. The lack of education in morals, fair play and even common decency are being displayed for all to see. Because God and discipline were taken out of our schools, PC and immorality have taken over. 

          Why did president Obama do what he did to
Israel? The same reasoning applies to what he has done to the United States. Obama is a Globalist, and was doing his best to usher in the New World Order and the Anti-christ. Because of the populations of the United States and Israel’s belief in the One True and Living God; they must be eliminated as world powers of influence. These are the last two vestiges of influence in the spiritual battle for Satan's domination of the world. Let he who has ears to hear and eyes to see, be aware of what is actually behind what is going on.
          Despite what Obama, and the rest of the Globalist say, there is no such thing as a Palestinian who is not Jewish. Those claiming to be Palestinians are, in reality, Jordanians whose own country will not repatriate them. The name Palestinians came from the Roman emperor Hadrian, who used the word to insult the Jews. The "Two State" solution is ridiculous, since there is only one state involved. There is no Palestinian state, and no Palestinian people. It took the presidency of Donald Trump to get our embassy moved to Jerusalem. Many other presidents said they would, but only Trump did. he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

Our President
I wasn’t going to, but I voted for Donald Trump. My first choices were Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina and I donated to both. When they faded, I switched to Cruz and Rubio. They lost my vote by the unchristian way they acted. I started hearing of Trumps anointing. There were many Christian authorities that were saying that Trump was God’s man of the hour.
          Here is the thing you need to understand my American brothers and sisters; President Donald Trump is not a Democratic or Republican or a typical politician, beholden to any donors. He is the voice of the American people and his actions shall be for the best interest of all Americans.

He will not please everyone because many in this nation have placed their own self interests ahead of the average American citizen, in order to gain or retain power, prestige, fame, fortune, control over the people and those are exactly the people you hear on the news from all sides complaining and working against Trump right now.

Who he will please are the American people regardless of race, religion, creed, he will protect the citizens and see their best interests are protected. And if he meets resistance by foes on either or both sides of the political aisle then it is up to us to get behind him and push these enemies of the free men and women of this nation aside. 

It is a simplistic concept, bring back the voice of the people, protect the people, defend all their rights, restore law and order if there is a law or regulation that is unjust repeal it, seek peaceful resolution with all our neighbors world wide and if they want war be prepared to give them hell. Put all Americans back to work, leave none behind and once we have our house and people taken care of then anything left over we can use to help others in the world. No tricks, no back room deals. period. Perhaps that is why these evil ones like Obama, the Clintons, and the rest of the establishment crowd in charge now can't understand it. 
For the people, by the people, of the is that simple!”[6]
Very interesting, kinda hits the nail on the head for me. So much had been shoved down the throats of quiet middle America. It took a brash, unpolished, shoot from the hip kind of person to unapologetically fire back. In doing so, many who were previously blind to the bullying, tantrums, hypocrisy, hatefulness and blatant intolerance of the haughty progressives have had their eyes opened in a big, big way.

          ”A female friend told me, succinctly, why she voted for Trump. She said “I got tired of being told to be quiet, and to just do what you can, without ‘rocking the boat’.” I maintain that that is how millions of other Americans felt, including millions of Democrats. And, what this means, is that millions of Americans did not agree with the increasing persistence of the Leftist Progressive Democrat agenda. Neither Bush ‘fought back’. Reagan did fight back, but he was such a Class Guy, that he preferred to avoid the political gutter. Trump doesn’t avoid the political gutter, nor does he care what his opponents/critics think of him. Believe me, this a breath of fresh air, 30 years in the waiting, for millions of us. We simply wanted someone to ‘fight back’, against leftism. We got him...did we ever.”[7] 
          “I am only "sharing" my thoughts, not assuming that everyone has to agree with me. Not once have I ever said that Pres. Trump is a role model for morality, or even an example of good behavior. It is my opinion that his policies are more friendly and supportive for the Christian principles that I believe in. I did not vote for him because I thought he was personally perfect. My point is that each individual has the right in America to make his own decision to vote for the one he/she believes would be more likely to stand by principles that they think would be best for the country. We often often widely differ on what the best solutions are for different issues. I believed Trump would select Supreme Court justices that would be a constitutional originalist, and in that he has not disappointed me. I believe that for a nation to remain sovereign, our borders must be protected. In that, he is striving to do so. It's what he most often supports that I believe in. I do not expect him to be perfect; perfection is in Jesus Christ and no other. Again, that's my personal belief which I do share with others, but know it is not in my power to control the response of others. You support the policies and principles that you esteem as valuable. I do also. But you and I do not have to resort to calling each other immature, less intelligent, or whatever. Our views are necessarily different because we often have different foundational beliefs. That doesn't make you or I less able to make our own decisions. Neither do we have to view one another as though one is superior and the other is an inferior ignoramus idiotic person that is surely "smarter than that" (a back door way of saying someone is dumb.) Instead, if things were normal, we SHOULD be able to express our differing views without making a personal attack. I know you on the left are going to have your own beliefs and opinions. The same with me.”[8]
          For me, the important thing in my life is not whether I am right or wrong, but whether I bring my opinions and beliefs into compliance with God's standards of what is right and wrong. I know there are plenty of times that I fail in doing that, but with God's help, I do keep striving to "have the mind of Christ." That is what I seek- to view all things, even politics, based on His standards, not my finite knowledge that is so limited by the very nature of my imperfect human state of being.
That's my personal choice. Others must be free to make their own choice.
          We have been given another chance to have our country blessed.
Are we going to join together and receive the blessings of God, or are we going to wallow in the divisions set up by the previous administrations? The Lord has provided President Trump, to lead us into the promised blessings of a nation that will humble themselves and pray. Don't let the evil in the streets turn you from the path the Lord has set our feet upon. When the Israelites went in to spy out the land, they missed the blessings because of fear. Let us not fear to do right. Let us grasp what could be the last chance for our country to receive the blessings God has for us. We can do all things in the name of Jesus. Don't let the evil in the streets overshadow your faith. 
"The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascist."[9]

          All others please move on- you won't understand or appreciate it. 
 Prophesies, about Donald Trump becoming president, started at almost the same time he gave his life to Christ; about 8 years ago. It was truly an act of God, that he won the election. Since Lucifer had attained so much influence with the "powers that be" in American politics, we can now understand the demonic type protesting and interference against Trumps administration. You know the Bible, and therefore you know that it's hard for the progressives to "kick against the pricks", and that God is in control. We know that there is not much time left, before the "return of The Christ". We must take advantage of this delay in the destruction of our religious freedoms, to help bring about one last great awakening. "If God be for us, who can stand against us?" We know that all the satanic powers there are, can not stand against a move of God. 
We are warned that we have to come against - 
1. Principalities that control governments – deep state
2. Powers – demonic spirits
3. Rulers of the darkness of this world – shadow government
4. Wicked spirits in high places
Ephesians 6:12 
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many

White supremacy
          I feel extremely fortunate to have been exposed and associated with the people of color that I have known. According to what information I can glean from the progressive movement, the people of color I have known were the only people of color who were capable of being successful on their own. My white privilege seems to be responsible for the vast majority of people of color being locked down into a life of lack and frustration. I do have some trouble with the poor, uneducated whites in places like Appalachia, since they are burdened by white privilege. ethnos shall rise against ethnos   

          I am 75 years old and I have so many unanswered questions!!! I still haven't found out who let the Dogs Out ...where's the beef to get to Sesame Street ...why Dora doesn't just use Google Maps... Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same, or how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? ...why eggs are packaged in a flimsy paper carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that's tough as nails, yet light bulbs too are in a flimsy carton... Ever buy scissors? You need scissors to cut into the packaging of scissors... I still don't understand why there is Braille on drive up ATM's or why "abbreviated" is such a long word; or why is there a D in 'fridge' but not in refrigerator? ...why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish washing liquid is made with real lemons ...why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections ...and, why do you have to "put your two cents in" but it's only a "penny for your thoughts?" Where's that extra penny going? ...why do "The Alphabet Song" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" have the same tune? ...why did you just try to sing those two previous songs? Just what is Victoria's secret? ...and what would you do for a Klondike bar? ...and you know as soon as you bite into it, it falls apart! And, why do we drive on Parkways and park on Driveways? Do you really think I am this witty??? ...I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from her brother's girlfriends, uncle's cousins, baby momma's doctor who lived next door to an old classmate's mail man... Now it is your turn to take it from me... Peace and love!

          I am ashamed that white people, black people and others bought the slaves that were kidnapped and sold by black Africans and Islamists, as well as the English that sold the Irish as slaves.( sometimes to the same customers)
I am ashamed of the white people, black people and others that buy the drugs smuggled, by the drug cartels, across our southern boarder, because there is a market for them in our country. Slavery to drugs is killing our citizens at a catastrophic rate. iniquity shall abound

Anti Christian
          “Obama was the one president who was personally responsible for encouraging more immoral and anti Christian policies ever to be produced as policies in our entire
US history. And this is the man that thinks he is fit to tell the people of America what is good or right? It is only because of the intervention of President Trump, under God's protective hand, that we have been given a reprieve from the sure judgment that have quickly fallen upon us if Hillary, the extension of the anti-Christ policies would have been allowed to be multiplied in our country. Remember, As just one example, Hillary was and is a champion for the killing of babies even up to and including the 9th month of pregnancy. Also, she verbally stated that we (Christians) must be ready to give up our fundamental beliefs.(my paraphrasing. Google both for yourself.). Of course, I realize that for secular globalist progressives the latter attitudes, even though they are against biblical teaching and values, are considered to be good. This is all further proof of the truth of God's word, fulfilling the prophecy that in the latter days good would be called good, and good would be called evil.”[10] before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, and deliver you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake

          After far too many years, our highest court, with the addition of Justices Gorsuch and Kazanaugh, has been returned to its original mandate to judge its cases by the Constitution and other defining original documents of our nation. No longer, will the will of some, legislate from the bench.

The mind of Christ
          Let me begin by saying that I have lost my mind. There are those who say that I have gone off the deep end, and there are those who know the truth about what happened. Jesus said I had to be Born Again and I have. Now I have the mind of Christ.
I know that there are some, perhaps many, that think these things about me-
Angry old white man
Deplorable, miscreant
Dreg Of Society 
Stupid, crap belief system
Intolerant, bigoted, unyielding, stubborn
Close minded
I would give more examples, but I don’t want to use that kind of language here.
But, Jesus just says: “thank you for standing up for me”.
I say “thank you for my Salvation”. ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
          First of all, there is a difference between becoming a Christian and living as a Christian. Humbling yourself, asking Jesus to forgive you for the sins you have committed, asking Jesus to come into your heart and become your Savior, making the promise to Him that you will do your best to live a sinless life from now on and love the brethren as yourself; this is the essence of beginning life as a Born Again Christian. Living life as a Christian, on the other hand, requires a lifetime of work. Life as a Christian requires involvement in the process of growing as a Christian.

          There are several types of “Christians”. There are those who are a little bit religious. There are those that are walking the middle of the road, with their moderate holiness. They are not very good or very bad, just medium. ‘little bit’ and ‘medium’ will get you a ticket straight to Hell. Only the righteous can enter the Kingdom Of God. Jesus said; you have to be Born Again, to see the Kingdom Of God. Now believe me, if you can’t see it, you can’t get there.
There is another thing you don’t want to be - self righteous. Self righteousness is very close to witchcraft (trying to control others with your power). It is difficult to relate to someone who is Holier Than Thou, because they are so filled with their own Holiness that they can’t recognize yours. This was the problem with most of the  Pharisees in Jesus day. They were the most learned people of the day, but they were unable to recognize God standing in front of them, because they were so full of their own righteousness that they couldn’t see the light because of their darkness.

Yeah, though I walk, daily, through the Valley of the Shadow if Death, I fear no evil, because my Fear of the Lord is greater. (fear of the Lord here means respect and trust in).
          The question now is, are we going to sit quietly in the pews, or are we going to do our fair share of the work of the Lord? 45 million Christians failed to vote, in the last election of 2016.
