"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
With the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against state Marriage Amendments, the stage is set for the removal of religious liberty for those who believe the Bible to be true. This is satan’s aim in using the homosexual agenda to destroy marriage. By destroying the next generation’s opportunity to hear the Gospel in public, he can easily lock most of them in darkness.
Is there any hope left? Yes, there is! God is still God; He is unchanged and He is still on the throne. He was here before America was birthed; He will be here if it ceases to exist. But having said that let me emphatically say that God’s promise is still the same:
“If my people, who are called by my Name, shall humble themselves and pray, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14, emphasis added)
The message couldn’t be clearer: Repentance brings healing and the postponement of judgment! So whether liberty is preserved to get the Gospel to the next generation is dependent on the people of God. Continue reading →
Did you know that if you started reading the day you were born all the laws passed by the national government you could not read them all in a lifetime? No one knows how many laws there are! Law has become so complicated that even the lawyers and judges don’t know what’s there. Why has this happened? Or perhaps you’re asking, “So what? How does that affect me?” Well, I assure you, it affects you a great deal!
Once you have so many laws on the books that the average man doesn’t know what the law requires of him he can no longer be sure of his natural, God-given rights. He lives in confusion as to what his rights and responsibilities are. Furthermore, a judge (who interprets the law to him) could tell him things that are not true and the individual would have no way to argue his rights with that judge. Thus, a people can move into tyranny being ruled by a handful of judges who conspire to make the law say what they want it to. Continue reading →
With more disrespect being shown to our flag, even within our own borders, it would do us well to revisit our heritage! Fort McHenry (where in 1812 a battle raged which inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star Spangled Banner) was named after a man who served as a medical soldier in George Washington’s army, and later signed the U.S. Constitution. His name was James McHenry. While unknown to us today, James McHenry was one of those men who laid such a firm foundation for America that during the 1800’s it would grow to become the greatest nation on earth. James McHenry got his foundation from the Bible. In addition to his achievements just mentioned, he also served as a member of the Continental Congress, his state legislature, and the U.S. Secretary of War—and President of the Baltimore Bible Society! He had this to say about the Bible:
“…public [usefulness] pleads most forcibly for the general distribution of the Holy Scriptures. The doctrine they preach, the obligations they impose, the punishment they threaten, the rewards they promise…can alone secure to society, order and peace, and to our courts of justice and constitutions of government, purity, stability and usefulness.
