Well, here we go now. "Prayer and Action: Faith and Works." Bill, the author of The Daily Jot, has the results of a 'Christian' survey, and the people don't want to take positive action in the USA! OK, No body wants to exert himself, 'make waves,' or get his hands wet or dirty these days, and so EVIL WINS AGAIN ! And here I am plunking away at my PC [personal computer] on a cold Feb. day in Upper Michigan, happy to have food, shelter and clothing as I see a cloudy, day with more snow on the way. I am so very thankful that God has protected me these past chaotic months on a new adventure. And it's hard to meet new people in my age group around here. I have my own little circle of friends, but it seems that most everyone is a "user" of some kind, always with an outstretched hand and needy in some way. Seems like the 'old family unit' has been replaced by the Gov't 'Big Brother' entity and a coming World Wide Gov't and Religion Beast, that REAL Christians don't want any part of !
You see, we are really Soldiers in God's Army, and the devil has his own invisible and VISIBLE army, too. But how are we to remain strict, in training, prepared and ready if we don't know our Leader, Jesus ? He knew the OT., Old Testament just like any other Jewish boy back then, some 1900 years ago, in the Middle East, and could quote from Isaiah and other texts. But the devil did too ! ! In fact, the devil has an edge on many so called Christians, because they just HEARD IT THREW THE GRAPEVINE.... about the Kingdom and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Some/ part of the action talked about below could be getting the basic knowledge of the KJV Bible, and only YOU can pick up and open up that great BOOK. Years ago, I wanted the bible near me all the time while I used to write to others, and so I built an isle made of Oak and propped at an angle so that it was easy and comfortable to read the bible when I needed to, and it still serves me well today ! I am nothing without the Word of God.... that is to say, The Bible, and I am not ashamed.... Romans 1: 16. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Wow! that IS powerful ! But I need to memorize it and keep it in my heart and mind, forever. And to people, even at church now days, who poke fun [because they are ashamed that they are too lazy of STUPID AT US/ WE who know and practice our bible...], I saw, get behind me, you lazy dogs !! It's not about some goofy, "one-upmanship" or snobbery, or "holier than thou" sort of thing. But Soldier need to get ready and prepare for War ! If you are too lazy to pick up your ammo belts, ruck sack, rifle and gear, be prepared to get hurt, killed, and let you team down ! Shame is what it can properly be called, and don't let any smooth, serpent tell you differently, please !
I want and need to hang around people who HAVE THE SPIRIT, and there is a church dinner tonight at church, of which I already bought some sliced Ham.... [no Islamic people will be there.... lol.], pickles and olives, to help out.
I will see you there !
