It never ceases to amaze me…

Have you ever noticed how that certain topics will stir the masses to action while other, equally important topics barely draw a whimper?

Consider for example the President. Any time his name is mentioned one of two things is sure to happen.

  1. His followers will defend his actions no matter how questionable
  2. His detractors will demonize his actions no matter how beneficial

Love him or hate him, very few remain on the fence about him.

And so it is with any number of controversial topics, people, or subjects. Everyone has an opinion, and most are only too willing to share theirs with the world. Except for one distinct group of people, that is.

It seems that the only group that remains consistently silent in the face of controversy are those who call themselves Christians.

As sheep being led to the shearer, we Christians have a peculiar propensity to remain mostly mute, content to watch from the sidelines while the spirit of AntiChrist marches towards ultimately criminalizing Christianity in America.

Think about that statement for just a moment.

  • It is the Church that is supposed to be Christ’s representative on the earth.
  • It is the Church that has been charged with leading men out of darkness into the light.
  • It is the Church that is supposed to be leading by example in all areas of spirituality and morality.

In other words, the Church is supposed to be heard from!

Yet it never ceases to amaze me that when the Church needs to rise to the occasion, it is as if someone pushes a ginormous MUTE button and she remains silent.

So it is with the recent House of Representatives “Equality Act“. This bill, which passed by a margin of 236-173, is one of those that if it ever becomes law will forever change the way that you live in America.

Simply put, this “Act” makes no allowance for communities or individuals of faith who hold traditional views of marriage and gender. In other words, if you hold to a Biblical viewpoint, you will find yourself on the wrong side of the law.

Personally, I absolutely believe this bill we eventually become the law of the land because once those who currently oppose of it are disposed of, there will be no stopping it.

If by some chance you have never heard of this legislation, you owe it to yourself and your family to read it. You need to know what is coming and the impact it will have upon your life, because life as you now know it will be over.

For a “plain English” summary, simply Google “Equality Act and the Church” and you will find all you care to digest on the matter. The link above will take you to the first post in the search engine.

I have searched for an official response from the Church to this atrocity of legislation but other than a few comments from fringe denominations such as the Seventh Day Adventist church and the LDS, I haven’t found much from mainline Christianity

Which in itself is an abomination.

It never ceases to amaze me how legislation that is diametrically opposed to all things “Godly” can be proposed, and the Church will step aside and allow it to become law without any resistance.

Then again, we’ve seen this movie played out before, time and time again. The tens of millions of lives destroyed by the likes of Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Kim Jong Un, and more recently Saddam Hussein all took place with barely any organized resistance from the Church.

How any rational person can remain oblivious to the fact that the Church is in an epic battle with “spiritual wickedness in high places” is quite simply beyond me. [1]

All that is left is for individual Christians to pray and seek the face of God. Pray for the strength to stand in the face of the severe trials that are surely coming upon this nation. Pray that we will be given the grace to to hold fast to our convictions, no matter the personal cost we must endure.

Those are the words spoken by God through His servant Jeremiah concerning the impending destruction and captivity of Judah.

The book of Jeremiah was written between 585-580 B.C. (approximately). Roughly 2600 years ago, the prophesied Babylonian siege and captivity of Jerusalem was about to commence.

Unable to find a man who executed righteous judgement or who sought truth, God was bringing His own judgement upon the nation of Judah because she had utterly rejected the Lord.

The sins of Judah and Israel were great and many.

  • They had refused correction (verse 3}
  • They refused to return unto the Lord (verse 3)
  • Their backslidings increased (verse 6)
  • They committed adultery (verse 7)
  • They had lied about the Lord (verse 12)
  • They prophesied falsely (verse 13)
  • They had a defiant and rebellious heart (verse 23)
  • Their houses were full of deceit (verse 27)
  • They would not plead the cause of the fatherless (verse 28)

Sound familiar?

These (and many more) are the reasons why God was going to use the Babylonians as His instrument of correction in the hope that Judah would once again return unto God.

So exasperated was the Lord with His people that He declared:

“An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end”?   Jeremiah 5:30-31

“But what will you do in the end”?

I believe the Lord would ask this same question of America today. Now that we have rejected Him in nearly every way possible, what now?

What now, now that we are killing babies right up until the time of birth?

What now, knowing full well that it will not stop there? We have “progressed” from abortions at the beginning of term to now killing them in the instant before they draw their first breath outside of the womb.

This lust for killing and savagery is unparalleled in the history of man. The only thing close to this level of barbarism is the Nazi war machine and it’s stated goal of genocide against the Jews and other undesirables of Europe.

To be sure, our politicians and financiers of such demonic activity use much more discretionary tactics than did the brutal SS of Hitler’s regime. The results, however, are the same: annihilate those deemed unwanted, unloved, unfit, or unworthy to live.

All decided of course, by the degenerate, sadistic, and morally bankrupt individuals who are now running this country.

Only a fool, or those who have willingly buried their heads in the proverbial sand, could say that America today is any different than the Judah and Israel of 2600 years ago.

It is a farce to hear the song “God Bless America” today. We would have the audacity to ask for God’s blessings when this nation has turned into a killing machine of the innocent?

So, the question that must be asked is “what will you do in the end”?

When God withdraws completely from America, what will you do?

When God turns a deaf ear to your cries, what will you do?

When God refuses to send the rain, what will you do?

When our cities are on fire, and no amount of police protection is enough to keep us safe in our homes, what will you do?

Will you cry aloud to the gods who have murdered the innocent?

Will you make your petitions known to those who place no value on human life, especially the innocent and unborn?

What will you do in the end?

I’d say you would be wise to figure it our today, because the end in coming, and it’s not going to be pretty.
