"Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in." ~ Isaiah 58:12
Americans are angry about Obama’s edict for boys and girls to share common bathrooms, and they should be angry! A number of Governors have urged their school districts to ignore Obama’s command, and Governors should be doing that! Rev. Franklin Graham stated he hoped “school districts across this nation will defy President Obama and his administration’s radical, progressive agenda to promote and advance the sin of homosexuality…” (http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/president-obama-transgender-bathroom public schools/2916/05/13/id/728773) (By the way, “progressive” is now the word used in place of “communism”. New name—same murderous philosophy!) In Texas, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick said the Lone Star State was prepared to forfeit billions in federal aid rather than let the Obama administration dictate restroom policy for its 5.2 million students (Breaking News at Newsmax.com 2016/05/13).
But remember: As the church goes, so goes the nation. We get the kind of elected leaders which reflect the thinking of the majority of the population. It is as Abraham Lincoln stated Continue reading →
History really is just “His Story”—that is—God’s Story. And we are about to see His reason for everything He’s done in this earth—including creating America. The most important part of God’s whole plan is about to be revealed.
The unveiling of this centerpiece of “His Story” begins in an obscure village in Palestine called Nazareth. An unknown young maiden is startled one day by a visit from an angel who identifies himself as being no less than Gabriel himself. He tells Mary (for that was her name) that she will have a child and that this child will be called “the Son of the Most High” (Luke 1:32). It was further revealed to her perplexed fiancé, Joseph, that, “She shall bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). Mary is shocked! She? Bear the long-awaited “Anointed One”? She was to give birth to the One Who would pay man’s debt to God? She was to bring into this world the One Who would fix what we had messed up in the Garden of Eden? This seemed incredible! Yet, the credibility of this mighty angel standing before her is hardly debatable.
And then the realization hits her. She is a virgin! How can she possibly bear a child? She looks at the angel with Continue reading →
A very important election is close at hand. In Kentucky, May 17th is the primary election. This is where we will choose state and local government servants which will shape our state for generations to come. This is Kentucky’s most important election this year! Yet, probably less than 25% of Kentucky’s born-again believers will vote! Up until 1900, the Christian population of America controlled the outcome of elections. No candidate could be elected who did not acknowledge God’s place in our history. Actually, they had to go even further than that. In their speeches and writings, they had to acknowledge that Jesus Christ was God’s Son, and that the Bible was the best book to live by in this world. Had a candidate for political office in the 1800’s stated that he believed abortion was a woman’s choice, or homosexuality was just a different way of family life, he would have ended his political career then and there. What changed?
It all started when Christians backed out of the political realm in the 1920’s. When Christians lost the battle over legalizing liquor, many Bible-believing Pastors began to say, Continue reading →
