What would Jesus do? (Part 2)


 

Maybe the question should be, “What did Jesus do?”

The phrase, “God is rarely early, but never late” sums up the election results Tuesday night.

So what did Jesus do in America?

He showed up. He made an historic entrance. He shocked the world.

He invoked His presence and sent a clear message of hope.

He agitated evil. He thwarted the enemy’s attacks. He stopped many in their tracks who are now wondering, “What just happened here?”

Psalm 33:10-11 “The LORD frustrates the decisions of the nations; he nullifies the plans of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”

He forged a “bulldozer” through the middle of satan’s traps to lead this nation back to the Cross of Christ.bulldozer

He boldly made known that God is still very much on the throne and involved with our everyday lives.

In a nutshell, God intervened with a miracle and changed the course of history.

God laid it on my heart months ago Donald Trump would become President. I knew it had to be God because he was the last person I would have chosen to be the leader of the free world.

As the election results started pouring in, the devil tried to tell me I had not really heard God correctly. But I didn’t budge. I didn’t allow those thoughts to take hold even though it appeared early on numbers revealed differently.

Overnight, God performed an appointed moment.

He declared Himself King once again.

He let the world know He is in charge and the gates of Hell will not prevail.

Donald Trump is just a man, but God has anointed him to guide us back to Him. There is no other way President Trump would be President Trump now. I use that in the present tense because it is already in motion.

Many Christians still can’t believe God could, much less would use a man like Donald Trump to do His work, but God is God and he can do whatever He pleases. All you have to do is read the Bible. God explains Himself quite well.

Jennifer LeClaire, Senior Editor for Charisma Magazine posted on Facebook that Tuesday morning she awoke to God speaking to her. He told her, “A kingdom will be toppled today.” And so it was that a kingdom of darkness that has been hovering over America for decades fell in one clean sweep of God’s hand.

So where do we go from here?

After the shock wears off for many of you, go to God in prayer and He will show you. He has had this plan in the works since who knows when; He has the answers.

We must continue to pray for our nation and especially the leaders that are now in place. Pray for God’s protection, guidance, direction and that His will be done in all matters.

We must remain close to God for signs and wonders of what and how to respond to the evil that will rear its ugly head and try to fight back.

We need to pray for those who are lost in this battle of blindness and deception that God will speak to their hearts and they will heed His call.

We need to pray the church will wake up and begin to teach, and preach God’s word; not what people want to hear.

We should open our hearts to His goodness and thank Him repeatedly for His great mercy and grace in this awesome move He has made on our behalf as His children.

And most important, we must continue to repent.

We have been in the Year of Jubilee; a time when God restores, heals and gives back what the devil tried to steal which he has been doing for almost 40 years.

A new day has dawned. The atmosphere has shifted. Light has overcome the darkness.

God loves America and is not finished with us.

God wants to bless America so He can use us to bless others.

But more than anything, God wants our hearts to line up with His in a personal and intimate relationship with Him.

God is good all the time!!!!kings

How would Jesus respond? (Part 1)


I hope you read the post from Matt Walsh.

It changes the perspective of Jesus’s responses to people.

It revealed to me how we, as Christians over the last 4 decades went silent.

I can’t speak for Mr. Walsh, but I don’t believe he was intentionally leaving out how Jesus promoted peace. He is peace. But we live in a very fallen, evil world that isn’t peaceful.

Ecclesiastes 3:8 “A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”

In a recent conversation I was told I was a bigot, a homophobic, racist, hateful, and full of intolerance, hypocritical and a “white privileged American.” Never mind these people didn’t know I existed before this conversation yet they labeled me to be what they wanted me to be since we disagreed.

Add to the few angry cohorts who were obviously following this person’s lead, I was in a nutshell, what is wrong with America.

Why?

For telling the truth.

I could care less what people think of me.

Let’s throw everyone who thinks or tries to live a Godly life in a bucket and persecute them until they shut up. Or at least that’s what many who claim to be walking with the Lord are doing, but must be reading from a different Bible than I do.

The timing of my reading what Matt Walsh wrote and this connection to those who think I am their enemy, couldn’t have been coincidental.

I read it before this occurred.

Years ago I remember how my quiet, shy mother began to speak boldly about God. She had no problems reprimanding us as kids even to our grown up ages, but she was noticeably quiet about her love for Christ and all He had done for her. It all changed after God healed her. She began opening up about her faith. She spoke and quoted verses without hesitation. She began an exhibiting an authority in her words about her walk with God.

Once there was a conversation at a dinner table with some Christian friends of hers she had been to college with. The only man in the room was a strong believer who had been a high school football coach and a high school principal for many years. He was very intelligent, handsome (a Yule Brenner look alike) and headstrong. Mom didn’t agree with something he said and she let him know. She had never done that with him. His wife, me and my daughter sat in silence observing this seemingly calm interchange become a demand from his standpoint that he didn’t approve of her new found faith and should keep her mouth shut.

She didn’t.

His male ego was shattered as she continued to speak the truth of God’s word because he was an upstanding man of God and she couldn’t possibly know something he didn’t.

We all had dessert and went on our way. They remained friends for many years after that until he passed away.

Isn’t that what Jesus did?

He spoke the truth even if it provoked people.

He walked in a spirit of authority that was noticeable but also offensive to some.

He was solid in His convictions and remained that way no matter how others responded.

Many in America today, including Christians are blinded from the truth. In their hearts is a rebellion against doing it “God’s way”. Instead they speak unwisely slamming that which they don’t understand because;

  • Their personal relationship to Christ is limited
  • It’s easy to dismiss what they don’t understand
  • They would have to admit they’ve been wrong and change
  • Reading and studying the Bible isn’t a priority

As I have grown in my walk with the Lord, I have noticed a boldness to speak about God that I never had before.

It wasn’t taught in the churches I attended.

Men were the head and we women were told to keep quiet, teach Sunday school and cook church dinners. Have I told you I didn’t inherit the ability to boil water?

The culture squashed speaking God’s word as evil has spread.

We allowed the enemy to tell Christians that we had to be “nice” as Matt Walsh wrote and remain doormats, therefore giving God very little voice.

And look where it got us?

Now having a conversation about the truth is considered unacceptable, narrow minded and repulsive. One woman told me I was exhausting her. Hhhhmmmm…I told her she didn’t have to read what I wrote. But she had no problem reading the very, lonnnnnnnnnngggggg comments from those who agreed with her.

There is a point to walk away as Jesus did, often. Say what He says and there is no need for defense because He doesn’t lie.

In this time we live in speaking out about Christ is needed more than ever.

But in order for it to be effective we have to do it “His way” and be Jesus to those listening.

To be continued…..mind

A Recopied post from Matt Walsh


This is so good I had to re-post it here on WordPress.

FROM MATT WALSH BLG:

Jesus deliberately did and said things that He knew would upset people. He stirred up division and controversy. He provoked. He didn’t have to break from established customs, but He did. He didn’t have to heal that man’s hand on the Sabbath, knowing how it would disturb others and cause them immense irritation, but He did, and He did so with ‘anger’ [Mark 3:5]. He could have gone with the flow a little bit. He could have chilled out and let bygones be bygones, but He didn’t. He could have been diplomatic, but He wasn’t.

He could have told everyone to relax, but instead He made them uncomfortable. He could have put them at ease, but He chose to put them on edge.

He convinced the mob not to stone the adulterer [John 8], and you’ll notice that He then turned to her and told her to stop sinning. Indeed, never once did He encounter sin and corruption and say: “Hey, do your thang, homies. Just have fun. YOLO!”

The followers of Nice Jesus love to quote the ‘throw the first stone’ verse — and for good reason, it’s a beautiful and compelling story — but you rarely hear mention of the exchange that occurs just a few sentences later, in that very same chapter. In John 8:44, Jesus rebukes unbelieving Jews and calls them ‘sons of the Devil.’ Wow.

That wasn’t nice, Jesus.

Didn’t anyone ever tell you that you can catch more flies with honey, Jesus?

Of course, you’d catch even more flies with a mound of garbage, so maybe ‘catching flies’ isn’t the point.

While we’re often reminded that Jesus said, ‘live by the sword, die by the sword,’ we seem to ignore his other sword references. Like when he told his disciples to sell their cloaks and buy a sword [Luke 22], or when He said that He ‘didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword’ [Matthew 10].

Now, It’s true that He is God and we are not. Jesus can say whatever He wants to say. But we are called to be like Christ, which begs the question: what is Christ like?

Well, He is, among other things, uncompromising. He is intolerant of evil. He is disruptive. He is sometimes harsh. He is sometimes impolite. He is sometimes angry.

He is always loving.

Christ was not and is not a cosmic guidance counselor, and He is not mankind’s best friend, nor did He call us to be. He made dogs for that role — our destiny is more substantial, and our path to it is far more challenging and dangerous.

And nice? Where does nice factor into this?

Nice: affable, peachy, swell.

Nice has nothing to do with Christianity. I’ve got nothing against nice — nice is nice — but even serial killers can be nice to people. They generally are exceptionally affable, except when they’re murdering. That means they’re nice to, like, 97 or 98 percent of everyone they meet.

I guess they’re following Christ almost all of the time, right?

And tolerance?

Tolerance is easy. Any coward can learn to tolerate something. Tolerance is inaction; intolerance is action. We are called to refuse to tolerate evil. We are called to get angry at it and actively work to destroy it.

Who’d have guess it — anger is far more godly than tolerance ever could be.

Obviously I’m not suggesting that anger is automatically, or even usually, justified. Christ exhibited righteous anger; righteous anger is the sort of anger that naturally fills our soul when we confront the depths of depravity and sin. It is wrong to seethe with rage because someone cut us off in traffic or gossips about us behind our back, but it is also wrong to feel no anger when babies are murdered and the institution of the family is undermined and attacked. Anger is good when it is directed at things that offend not us, but God. Just as Christ’s intolerance, like the intolerance we’re commanded to have, stems from a desire to save souls and defend Truth.

Even when we have righteous anger, we do not have carte blanche to act on it in anyway we please. But, according to the Bible, there are times to use strong language, there are times to cause a scene, there are times to hurt people’s feelings, and there are times when we might need to use physical force.

Jesus told us to turn the other cheek when we are personally attacked; He never told us to turn our backs entirely and let lies spread and evil grow.

So, enough with the niceties.

Christians in this country sound too similar to the the Golden Girls song, and not enough like the Battle Hymn of the Republic. There’s too much ‘thank you for being a friend,’ and not enough ‘lightening from His terrible swift sword.’

We’re all hugging and singing Kumbaya, when we should be marching and shouting Hallelujah.

We’re nice Christians with our nice Jesus, and we are trampled on without protest.

Enough, already.

I think it’s time that Christianity regain its fighting spirit; the spirit of Christ.

I think it’s time we ask that question: ‘What would Jesus do?’

And I think it’s time we answer it truthfully: Jesus would flip tables and yell.

Maybe we ought to follow suit.

Now where is that frog?


 

Last night I posted on FB a picture of a tiny green frog on our dining room wall. Edgar our, ferocious predator cat was determined to get this frog for himself.frog-1

With such a high ceiling there wasn’t any way any of us could have reached this wayward tailless amphibian.

Somehow I don’t think it stopped Edgar. Either he stayed up all night waiting to catch this little guy or ……. He ate it. There is no sign of the frog and Edgar has hardly moved from his sleeping chair all morning. If he gets sick later, then we’ll know what became of the tiny intruder.

The lesson here is that Edgar didn’t learn his lesson from the last time he caught a frog. If he actually did eat it this time he really is a slow learner. He is one to catch a critter and beat it, or torture it to death which I find totally disgusting but not eat it.

His instincts as a feline are to hunt and catch. Altho he is a spoiled baby who has been completely sheltered since he adopted us last June (2015) that instinct is proudly demonstrated in his big world of our back yard. Unlike Maxi our female cat who has left us many gifts, Edgar growls as he runs in the house with arms or legs hanging out of his mouth. He wants to show us his great catch, but don’t even think for one minute he will let you have it.

Aren’t we just like that with God?

We choose to hang on to that which isn’t good for us instead of giving it to God for him to deal with?

Old habits are hard to break. God may even want us to let go of certain habits that aren’t necessarily bad but God may have an alternative that is better.

Psalm 55:22 “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.”

Sounds easy, so why aren’t we doing that?

Maybe you should ask my cat.

Our Furry Friends: Unconditional Love


 

Watching the Annual American Humane Hero Dog awards the other night, I once again cried as each nominee was presented. The stories behind these brave animals are no less courageous than humans. Many risk their lives for us humans in various ways.

The Arson Dog, named “Judge” has worked more than 275 fires often bringing evidence leading to many arrests.

The Therapy dog helps the person who needs coaching in life skills.

The Police K-9 or Military Dogs are trained to find bombs, weapons or protect those in their command. “Layka” took shots and lost a leg while guarding her combat unit in Afghanistan.

There was one little dog who was what is now called a Hearing Guide dog. This precious little creature saved her human from getting hit by a bus because she can’t hear environmental sounds.

“Hooch” the French Mastiff who won has a story of his own. When found by Zach Scow 3 years ago in a rescue it was determined Hooch had had his tongue cut out. Emaciated from not being able to eat, he was rushed to a vet for treatment. He is fed by hand now.

2016-american-hero-dog-hooch

Ironically, Zach Scow almost died also from liver damage because he is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. The two are now inseparable and Zach owes a lot of his stability to this survival of the fittest.

Hooch is now used to calm non-verbal autistic children while learning social skills. He also cares for women who have been abused. His peaceful nature is contagious; so much so that some of the first words spoken by these children of autism is “Hooch.” 

How have we humans missed it?

How is it that the unconditional love and loyalty from dogs hasn’t caught on with people?

For the most part, dogs have a natural ability for qualified love. It’s not in us, and unless a dog is abused or neglected that instinct remains.

God is unconditional love.  Maybe He knew we would respond well to dogs so He placed a great deal of that love inside of them.

He also gave them the instinct to know when something is wrong. Out of the love they have for their owners, dogs respond by letting us know when to be alert, on guard or even move us out of the way of trouble we didn’t see coming.

Isn’t that how God is with us?

He is our guide.

He alerts us to danger.

He often removes us or removes that which He doesn’t want in our lives for our own protection, spiritual maturity and growth for the kingdom of God.

Psalm 27:11

Teach me your way, O LORD, And lead me in a level path because of my foes.

 

Dogs know automatically what their purpose is in the life they’ve been given.

Our purpose is to have and maintain a close, personal relationship with God.

Maybe we can learn from dogs how to be more obedient to our calling.

2 John 1:6 “2 John 1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

How much do you love America?


 

 

At my age you know the difference of the last 10-15 years and what life was like prior to that time. I have observed over my lifetime evil take a slow, but very progressive leap into changing this country to a nation that hasn’t been this divided since the Civil war.

Let me warn you of my candidness in this post. As a Christian who has been through Hell for decades, I know the goodness and grace of God to be one of the Almighty’s greatest gifts to mankind. He is now using that gift for America. 

We don’t deserve God’s grace. America left God in the wings of liberalism and far left ideology as many listened to the devil instead of the Holy Spirit. As a result, America is where it is now which is on the brink of destructing itself.luke

God has a mandate for America and that mandate is part of our saving grace.

Our founding fathers built the Constitution on Godly principles so that America could be the example for the world of who Jesus is.

We have a job to do as the church to bring that message to the world. That can’t be done if America is lodged in pure evil.

America was created to support Israel.  Our present administration is full of Muslim components who have set out to destroy Israel and anyone who supports them.

I have listened, read and observed many prophecies about the future of this great country.

As a prayer warrior myself, God showed me early on in this election that Donald Trump was His choice to be President. 

I wouldn’t have chosen him but I am not God and neither are any of you.  I grew up in a stoic church that would never have accepted Donald Trump except to take his money.

God does want he wants and chooses who he chooses to fulfill His promises.

This morning I woke up to the Holy Spirit telling me,

“Anyone else who was running for President couldn’t reach the voters that Donald Trump can.”

Why?

Because he hasn’t been a Christian long.

He employs diverse people to work for him.

He can cross the aisle of politically correct jargon and reach those who are wishy- washy in their thinking.

He can reach those who have been hurt, ridiculed and left for dead by the present government and church in the wake of a faltering nation.

He is bold, outspoken and as Lance Wallnau described him, “a wrecking ball.”

So be it. Isn’t that what Mary responded with when the angel told her she would be the mother of the savior of the world?

IF you don’t believe God can use Donald Trump to do the “Christian” work needed to rescue America, then read the Bible. It’s full of adulterers, murderers and frauds who became God’s handiwork.

Moses was a murderer. 
Abraham was an adulterer.
Samson was an adulterer who ate honey out of a dead bear which was prohibited by the Nazarene theology.
Solomon had over 700 wives and 300 concubines who led him astray.
David was an adulterer and a murderer. 
Elijah decided to quit his calling.
Matthew was a thief.
Peter denied Christ 3 times after spending 3 years with him.
Paul was a Pharisaical terrorist who regularly persecuted and killed many Christians. 
And we all know about Judah.
All of these men are examples of us. 
All of these men were chosen by God. 
All of these men changed the world.  
God gave a voice to a donkey.
He can use anything and anyone to accomplish his purpose.

 

Dr. Wallnau has written a book and spoken often in the last 2 years of his journey in this political arena which by the way he didn’t ask for. God chose him

 Donald Trump is running for President because he loves America, not because he chose to.

Dr. Wallnau has described him as having the Cyrus anointing and has met with Donald Trump on many occasions. He has even spoken about how he feels the anointing of God on Mr. Trump when in his presence.cyrus

I hear the church screaming with that last sentence. Get over it.

And especially read Isaiah 45. King Cyrus was raised up by God to deliver the Jewish nation from who knows what. He wasn’t a follower of God.

“This is what the LORD says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut.”

That pretty much sums up what Dr. Wallnau says God is doing and I totally agree. It’s no coincidence that God used the 45th chapter in Isaiah to describe the wrecking ball who could very well be the next President. President #45. With your help.

The two platforms couldn’t be any more opposite.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the difference.

As Christians, you have no excuse not to vote. If you don’t you are in my opinion choosing to deny your faith.

If you aren’t a Christian, you still have a God given right to cast your vote even if you don’t know that.

Voting for a 3rd party candidate is voting for Hillary Clinton.

The key here is to seek God for the person He wants all of us to vote for whether you like the person or not. The reason? Because God knows what’s coming and He is giving us the opportunity to filter through the evil that the enemy is perpetrating on America. We live in a fallen world; one we can choose to be protected by and guided by God to overcome.

Leaving God out of this equation is a sign that we don’t believe God can do what He says He can do. It is a belief that God can’t change people which undermines His position.

How much do you love America?

Then vote. And vote for the candidate (s) God wants you to vote for.

God, why is this taking so long?


 

As I imposed that question to the Creator he reminded me of a few Biblical characters that waited and waited and waited for the dream he placed inside of them to come true.

Noah spent 120 years building the ark. I award him the greatest “builder” award in history.

ark

Abraham and Sarai waited for 20 years to have that child God promised.

Moses herded sheep for 40 years before God gave him the worst job on earth; putting up with the Israelites.

David ran from Saul and hid in caves for months at a time.

We know how Paul suffered multiple injuries and beatings, starvation, getting shipwrecked, imprisoned who knows how many times and for how many years….

Were these people slow learners?

Were they lacking faith in believing what God had promised them?

Did they waver in doubt and anxiety that maybe, just maybe what they thought they heard was a figment of their wild imagination?

I admit the struggle here for me has not been fun, easy or at all what my life would be at this point in time. Then I realize God’s sustenance.

My next big questions for God are, “as these great men of yours were pursuing this dream, destiny or what ever it was did you give them updates? Did you speak to them daily? or were you silent for months, or years on end without a word of encouragement?”

120 years to build a boat that entertained laughter from your friends about how crazy you are for thinking for one moment God told you to do it?

And that burning bush idea? Yeah, right.bush

“Abraham, you will be the Father of many nations….” Sure. Go tell your friends that one especially since you are what, 80 years old?

My point here is the test. God gives us a dream, a purpose or the destiny for which He created us for our time on this ugly, mean earth. Why? Because there has to be good in the midst of all the evil.

All of a sudden I received a download of revelation about why I’ve spent the last 19 years in and out of weird health issues. And I’m still dealing with them but now I know what’s taking so long; why this is happening and possibly my future in it. 

Not that I am Moses, Abraham or David or any resemblance but they possibly learned some of the same things I have while “waiting.”

We first learn how much God loves us which brings us to humble ourselves before Him in ways we never thought we would. 

We learn how to discern the truth from the devil’s lies. 

We are taught in the process how other’s feel going through their “seasons of waiting.”

We learn rejection and abandonment either brings us closer to God or further away.

Comparing ourselves to others only demeans the destiny and damages our character; therefore stop doing it.

Embarrassment becomes a non-issue so that persecution, being laughed at and bullied are the least of our worries.

We find out what is really important, and who is really in charge which results in total dependence on God for everything.

We are tested for our faith so that when God allows us to enter our “Ark” we are ready. That’s right. God often allows the fiery furnace to burn to make sure we can handle what will happen once that door of heat flies open letting us out into the world of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

Years ago God gave me Isaiah 40:43 “Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.”

God qualifies the unqualified. And if I have the idea of what He is qualifying me to do, I  respond as Moses did when he said to God, “why me? I am the most unqualified person to do what you are asking. Please get someone else!”

Graduation is always a great reward. God wants to make sure we are ready before He fits us for that golden cap and gown waiting in our closets.

The Trials of Testing


Do you feel beat up by life?

Do you feel your world is crashing around you only to engulf you with its demise?

Well, you’re not alone.kneel

Many of us are being tested to the hilt.

Many of us are barely holding on to the next second.

Many of us are weary, worn out and sad.

Getting slapped over and over not only becomes old but it hurts.

And we who believe in God wonder, “Where are you?”

For me, it has been the last 6 years especially.

My father became very ill and then passed away in 2014. I was very close to him.

My mother has Alzheimer’s. She will be 87 on August 31.

It was time to move mom out of the house I grew up in. I had no idea receiving some of her prized furniture and possessions would make me so sad.

The lack of close family and friends has been partly due to where I live; otherwise it’s just the way it is.

And then my allergies to dust have been at times debilitating to say the least. If it’s not the reaction itself that makes me miserable, the meds make up for it. I have jokingly blamed my mother for making me grow up in an immaculate house.

This is a short list of my life and its deteriorating factors.  Add to that the surrounding world mess and it’s been a recipe for depression and anxiety.

The truth is I wouldn’t be writing this if God wasn’t pulling me up every second out of this grief.  Finally admitting to myself how sad I have been over the many different kinds of losses was a step God wanted me to make because without a doubt it led me to understand how He is in control and manages everything.

Zephaniah 3:17warrior

The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Arriving at this conclusion erased most of the past 61 years of thinking. In other words, my mind is being renewed to a constant awareness of His presence and that I really can’t do anything without Him.

Our dear friend Paul wrote in 2nd Corinthians 1: 9
“Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.”

I feel Paul’s pain.

I feel his words ripping through me like a sword.

I feel his gripping fear of the next move.

But as he found out, so am I that God is faithful.

I may not have arrived, but I left only because God is with me to make the next step or the shift into the next minute.  In the literal sense, God is holding me together.

Jesus is our hope.

Jesus is our future.

Jesus is the answer to our misguided efforts to get through anything.

Jesus is.

I can hear God’s heart breaking…


 

It wasn’t my intention to take a break from blogging but I have been dealing with an ear infection from hell. Thankfully the medication has worked but mostly I give God the credit for my recovery. I’ve only had one other ear infection this bad and that was almost 20 years ago. Don’t recommend it.

This is a break from my last post which I will pick up later.

America is in a mess we created ourselves.  

God is aching over the loss of lives lately.

God is hurting over the divisiveness of his people.

God is sad over the fact people blame Him for their own sin.

God’s heart is broken.

Most of my days I spend in conversation with God.

He listens very closely. He is always available and his phone line never shuts down.

It’s so wonderful for me to keep His words flowing because it gives me His presence.

Sometimes I hear Him tell me to just stop and listen.

Many days now, I ask Him, “God, what is on your heart today?”

That’s how I know He is hurting for our country.

humble

Besides the senseless loss of life recently, evil appears to be highlighted with such a large yellow marker you’d think Americans would wake up. Other countries see what’s happening here but our own people don’t.

Social media has become a sport for some and others use it to simply bully the innocent.

If you disagree it’s an all-out cyber fist fight. Never mind the truth, if it filters the lives of what others don’t want to hear, you become a gutless, mentally unstable fdkdgnlnglknglgng. 

Or at least that’s what numerous facebook commenters labeled me.

What they don’t know is I don’t get offended anymore. God beat that out of me years ago.

What they also don’t know is, I’m praying for them now and they can’t stop me.

What they don’t know is how they’re damaging themselves with their vile obscenities and harassing intimidations.

What they don’t know is how the devil has taken over their lives and is eating up their soul.

This sheds light on the heart condition of America as we have seen it played out in our streets of so many cities. Violence, persecution, hate, racism and division have plagued this country for too long.

I dare say what would happen if people could reach through their laptop or phones to strangle anyone who disagrees with them. It may not be a physical hit, but the representation of how so many are thinking is ever so evident.

But God is getting ready to pick up the piece of America and put it back together.

God is awakening the world to His truth that the secular media won’t reveal.

God is moving, shaking and stirring the pots of evil sifting the good from the bad.

Even in the midst of what appears to be “war” on our home turf, God is still here and very much in charge.

He is making sure we all know whose side we are not on.

He is making sure we all know those who are serious about God and those who aren’t.

He is making sure the church rises again but this time on His terms.

As my heart aches for the country I have lived in for 61 years, I believe God in His great mercy still loves America and wants to rescue us from ourselves.

I also believe as it darkens, He is raising up armies of all kinds to defeat this raging battle and be the light of Jesus everywhere.

It’s always darkest before the dawn.
