"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
During the Christmas season, much is said and sung about Jesus coming to earth. Many love the warm, gentle thoughts of a little baby being born and having His birth announced by angels. But how many actually ever ask the question: Why did Jesus come? We can only answer that from the Bible. Because, even though there is historical evidence that Jesus did live in Palestine in the first century, the only revelation to be found concerning why He came, is to be found in the Bible.
Jesus, Himself, declared His reason for coming in Luke 19:10. He stated,
“…the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
But what does “lost” mean? To understand that, we must first understand why God made man in the first place. Continue reading →
A journalist by the name of Heine, warned in the 1830’s what would happen in Germany if Christians did not stand strong in their walk and work of the Gospel of Christ. He warned:
“Christianity – and that is [Germany’s] greatest merit – has somewhat mitigated that brutal Germanic love of war… Should that subduing… [cross] be shattered, the frenzied madness of the ancient warriors … will once more burst into flame.
“This [cross] is fragile, and the day will come when it will collapse miserably… (Remember, he’s saying this 100 years before Hitler’s rise to power) Then the ancient stony gods will rise…and smash the…cathedrals.”
(The History of Religion and Philosophy in Germany, 1834)
Heine also warned:
“Where they burn books, they will also burn people.”
We now see the burning of books in the academic realm as Biblical ideas are more and more shut out of that realm. Continue reading →
Since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against marriage in the summer of 2013, we’ve seen many of the State Marriage Amendments, which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman only, declared unconstitutional by national courts. These rulings not only ignore the right of the people within their states to define marriage, they fly in the face of Biblical moral law which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman only. These judges “fear not God, nor regard man” (Luke 18:4).
So what do we do when we have a disordered national court system? We must do what the Bible teaches by the principle of interposition: We must appeal to our state governments to come “in between” our national government and the people. This is what Jehoida, the Priest, Daniel, and Queen Esther did to fix disordered government. We must fervently urge our state Governors, who have full authority to stop this attack on marriage, to do so. Not only do they have full Constitutional authority to stop this overthrow of state law, they have a responsibility to do so! They have taken an oath to uphold both their state Constitutions and the national Constitution. It is their duty to stop these renegade judges!
Maybe you’re asking where we get this idea. When Peter and James were told by the government authorities of their day to speak no more in Jesus’ Name, they spoke this principle when they stated, Continue reading →
