When I first started writing my Blogs, I vented quite a bit of anger through my words, creating an angry person that was behind the keyboard. My words allowed me to vent the hatred and spite I felt deep inside. Those emotions, 9 out of 10 times (more like 99.999999%) were aimed at the political world and how corrupt, controlling, and how much they loved super venting our Constitution. Yeah, I'm a died in red, white and blue Consitutionalist. I love my country, at least the one our forefathers envisioned and wanted our country to become and stay. So, yes, you can see how much hatred I have for politicians, or had. I now understand how those feelings were eating me alive from the inside and how much they affected me and those around me. I became the voice of force in any conversation, overpowering any and all who opposed my ideals. In other words: I was becoming the very thing I despised, and to all who I hurt or drove off with my feelings, I sincerely apologize.
Still, I follow politics as much as I ever have, but understand what is going on is out of our control. Yes, I will vote my conscious (thank you very much, Ted Cruz). I know, by God's great design, all that is happening is in His control. For me to vent anger about the way our country is heading, is for me to vent anger at God. Stupid, and totally useless to do so! My youngest son is one of the rising ministers in these times. He is a being called upon to cross the country and globe to preach, not the feel good teachings and religions that are permeating Christianity, but a man (who I am so proud of) that is teaching what God meant for us to hear and know. If we are to be one of those who are the 'Dead in Christ' or one of those 'Alive and Remaining' that will meet Christ in the air when He returns, not 'a truth', but the hard truth must be spoken, heard and learned. Holiness before Him is essential. Accepting what the secular wants us to see as normal, and that God loves everyone no matter how sick of a lifestyle they live, is the biggest lie being perpetrated on humanity.
"You have to stand for something, or you'll fall for anything" is such a true statement, as well as a good song. If you don't realize that the stop watch of humanity has about reached it's last tick, and our lives aren't God led and Spirit filled, we will become dung staining the ground. As in the Early Church when Christians were being martyred (killed because of their faith in God and Christ) every day, so it begins again. As the Muslim hoard becomes stronger across the world, it will show its intolerance, not just for homosexuals (for them to hate homosexuals is the pot calling the kettle black...they rape boys!!) but for any religion that is not based upon the Qur'an and Islam, will find themselves either denying their faith to keep from facing an inevitable death. I know, as for me and my house, we will serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, He who told Moses to tell the Egyptians, "I Am has sent thee". I do not want 70 virgins, I want to be with Him for Eternity in what Paul said in Revelations 21:1, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
One may ask, "Does this mean you won't stand and defend your family against those who would do them harm in the name of their twisted beliefs?" My answer to them is, "Until the last drop of blood leaves my body, I will destroy any and all who would harm them." What? Didn't the early Christians sing and praise God as the lions tore them apart, as they were burnt on a cross or met death at the hands of the Roman horde? Why would you defend your family instead of just laying down your life? Even Christ told his Disciples in Luke 22:36, "Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Christ knew we would need to defend our families, but win or lose, we win.
I know this blog is not what you are used to from me, and I'm sure there are Blogs in the future when I attack politicians and world events that are occurring, but for now I want you to start thinking about why the world is changing, why Islamic Terrorists are doing what they are doing. What religions will fall to come into line with Islam to keep from dying at their hands, though that will just be a temporary stay. What I do want to warn you to watch for: what main...so called world church, will join ranks with Islam to kill Christians. Hint: Their government did it once, their so-called church will do it again. Draw your own conclusions.
If you should want to know who my minister son is, and what church he calls home and where you can see videos of his sermons, feel free to e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last question: Whom will you serve, and will you stand for Him even if it means your death to do so? Do you have that conviction, love and faith in God? If not, you might want to take time to meditate on what you do stand for.
