I recall once hearing a state legislator in Kentucky argue that there was no such thing as a The Gender Agenda1“homosexual agenda”.  However, David Gibbs, President of the Christian Law Association in America, tells how he was in a state government committee hearing about 30 years ago where an attorney speaking for the homosexuals related their plan to gain acceptance for their lifestyle.  We’ll share that plan in a moment.

But why should we question that there is a plan?  Since the Garden of Eden, satan has had a plan to keep man from becoming what God had created him to be.  Years ago, the apostle Paul revealed satan’s schemes to control man and this earth.  Paul wrote in Ephesians 6,

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

(Ephesians 6:12-13)

There is a war in the spirit realm that causes every action in this natural realm.  To deny that this war exists is to invite destruction to yourself and your nation. Continue reading

Four generations of Americans have now been taught that this nation was birthed out of ideas from many different cultures:  That America is the great ‘melting pot’ of ideas. While it is true America has descendants from many nations which make up her citizenry, the men who birthed this nation were very much alike in their basic view of life and the world.  The effort to hide from us their beliefs is designed to destroy the very liberty we cherish.

In 1843, Emma Willard, educator and historian, identified both the characteristics of the young republic of the United States and the reason for its emerging greatness.  Her words give us insight, which, if taught to our children, will protect God’s precious gifts to us of “life, liberty, and property”.  She wrote:

“The government of the United States is acknowledged by the wise and good of other Foundational Ideas of America1nations, to be the most free, impartial, and righteous government of the world; but all agree, that for such a government to be sustained for many years, the principles of truth and righteousness, taught in the Holy Scriptures, must be practiced. The rulers must govern in the fear of God, and the people obey the laws.”

“Revival Can Happen in Our Day”

On February 3rd in 1970, God worked a modern day revival in central Kentucky.  A Chapel service at Asbury College was invaded by the Holy Spirit of God.  His work Revival Can Happen in Our Day1would go deep in the hearts of students, faculty members and many others, for the next eight days.  Classes were cancelled as most of the college family waited in the Presence of God.  Honest confessions of sin, private and public, were the norm as one person after another made their way to the altar at the front of the auditorium.  After their surrender of every area of their lives, they would walk up onto the platform and give their witness to the whole group as to what God had done in them.  This was repeated in hundreds of individuals over the eight day span as there were always some people in Hughes Auditorium for every hour of those eight days.

Those days were characterized by deep repentance and, thus, lives being transformed.  One rebellious Senior’s testimony describes well what would happen to many.  In Robert Coleman’s book One Divine Moment, which recounts the story of the revival, this young man is quoted as saying,

“I’m not believing that I’m standing here telling you what God has done for me.  I’ve wasted my time in college…but Christ has met me and I’m different. Continue reading
