Ignoring the obvious
The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:11-13: "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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 you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." The order of wickedness emanates from the devil. His minions are established in spiritual principalities, extending to those who are placed in the hierarchy here on earth-those of this world. We need to recognize this and understand it, especially as it relates to our leadership.
On October 22, 1962, President John F. Kennedy faced such an example with the Cuban missile crisis. Kennedy addressed the nation, saying "This Government, as promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the Soviet military buildup on the island of Cuba. Within the past week, unmistakable evidence has established the fact that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on that imprisoned island. The purpose of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the Western Hemisphere. The Soviet leadership lied about the missiles up to the very day of Kennedy's address. It was obvious, even though many did not want to suspend their disbelief to see the imminent threat of death or surrender that was facing our beloved country.
This is no different than the current Administration. It has been revealed that the White House and its minions deliberately lied to the American people and the news media, misled them intentionally, about dealing with the world's foremost sponsor of terrorism-Iran. According to a Washington Free Beacon investigative report, the Administration lied to the media, lawmakers and the citizenry for over nine months as it reached agreement to release $1.7 billion to the very Iranian bank that funds the country's ballistic missile system. Instead of curtailing Iran's nuclear program, the White House has accelerated it. For over seven years, the White House has appeared to work against the best interest of Americans.
We, as a law abiding people, chose to right these types of wrongs peacefully rather than with bloodshed. We do it through elections. We cannot ignore the obvious. Continuing the takeover of our nation by those who wish to destroy it in the name of change is ignoring the obvious. Continuing this is detrimental to ourselves and our offspring. The scriptures say that the devil wishes to steal, kill and destroy. That is what is facing us with this election. We can either chose peacefully to begin to change it with this election, or ignore the obvious and reap the consequences as children of disobedience. It will lead to more theft, death, and destruction. As for me and my house, we chose to take a course where us and our seed may live. We have to draw the line in the sand somewhere. We must repent, pray, and most certainly, ACT.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Guten Tag ! ---Good Day !
The article that I cut and pasted today is super food for thought... and scary. But I feel the need to tell you about something very important, in my mind. It's kind of like an 'illustration' or parable, but includes the pure History of Israel, too.
In Exodus, Chapter 19, verse, 25, it says that, "So Moses went down unto the people, and spake [spoke] unto them." And then, Chapter 20, begins with the 10 Commandments, along with 300 other legal, important, BINDING laws. Most people in the world, and many so-called 'Christians' don't even know [or care] about this significant fact/ record ! ! But the Power and Authority in those following chapters and verses are, for instance, that, 'If a son/ child at the "age of reason" raised his hand against his parents ---the law called for the DEATH PENALTY ! That's right, the 'child' would be stoned to death outside the city gates ! That's nothing to sneeze about, friends ! Do I have your attention now ? This just serves to let us know how important the Law Covenant was, so that it was the parents' J.O.B. to 'TEACH their children well.' That last phrase is part of an old song of the 1960's..... You must see and understand that IGNORANCE of the Law is no excuse! OK, we as Christians, today, are NOT under that Old Law Covenant Code. We are under the New Law Code that Jesus Christ gave us shortly before He died for all mankind, in the year 33 CE [or A.D., if you prefer]. But the 'penalty of sin is still death !' But if we truly KNOW God, and confess that Jesus is our true Lord and Savior with our lips, we can know for sure that we are Saved. See, Romans 8: 35, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness or peril, or sword?" And verse 39 says that 'Nothing can separate us from the love of God, which is the Lord Jesus Christ.' But that doesn't mean we can live the wicked, dark, sinful life style ! Even though we sin every day of our lives, doesn't mean that we can willfully practice sin.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING IN MY LIFE, especially right now, in October, 2016, is [with all the dire, important, scary, disturbing News and threats of World War 3, etc..... and the Rapture could also come at any time...] --- is being Saved and going to heaven ! Hey! I've already had a super, adventurous life, full of danger, hard work and so many disappointments, loss of beloved family, a wife and a son !! Would I really like to cap it all off with eternity in HELL ??? Remember, it's like the 'Roach Motel...' the bugs can get in --- but they CAN'T GET OUT ! The KJV Bible tells us that, YES, we can and should know for sure, that we are Saved and going to heaven !!
But here is another question, please.... Years ago they had "Match Makers" so that the parents of upper class people would 'arraign' future marriages so that their children could have some security and safety in marrying into the proper, right families... especially Nobility. I am just a "Common Man" and so love and feelings are involved and I can pick out the woman whom I like -- and she likes me, too. But still, we were probably raised to hopefully marry in our cultural and religious circles and status.
So, let's say that I found a nice lady on a 'Christian dating web site,' and we emailed, and talked to each other on the phone and exchanged photos of each other. People do that all the time, and they do fall in love with each other. But what IF a person never spent much time getting to know the other person, many miles away?? The other person might get the feeling that the man just didn't have much interest in her ? Or maybe the man only wanted the woman for selfish reasons, for good looks, for sex, for money, etc. And people can, and do become "actors" and are also predatory, mean, dishonest, and mercenary !! So, BEWARE ! You would THINK that people who call themselves "Christians" would ACT like Christians.... but most of them have not got a clue what that term means !! And they never even read the Gospel accounts of the Bible, either ! You see, marriage is like an "Investment." You have got to put in the time, to get to know the other person, inside out, to know and care for your mate. To be good at communication -- you need to practice. The Holy Spirit also helps us a lot, but again, MOST people don't even know about the Spirit, or what Jesus Christ taught.... so how can they really say that they are, "Christians ??" Yes, most people are just too dang lazy to 'make the investment' in time, to ever read God's Word, seriously, and too many churches fail to teach the pure bible, too. Shame ! And Women's Liberation has done a good job at destroying Christianity, along with many so-called, 'churches' here in the USA and abroad. Yes, our 'civilization' is almost destroyed as most of the world would rather throw in their lot with the NWO [the New World Order, of Satan the Devil].
OK, Satan is certainly responsible for much of the world's woes --- but we still have to make a choice, and soon !! God has the power to "see into our hearts" just as Jesus did when he was on earth... as it was recorded for us in the 4 Gospel accounts. So there is NO fooling Him ! And as I have said so often.... "Going to some church every Sunday no more makes one a Christian --- than standing in a garage makes one an auto mechanic !"
A smart pastor recently told me, that if my conscience bothered me about doing something, then it was a sin. I have recently prayed for something, and God heard me, and now that I have the cure for what ails me, I am truly lonely and depressed. 'Be care what you wish for, or pray for....LOL.' But at the same time, don't stick your head in the sand like a big bird. Remember what we said about being, "Willfully Ignorant." God knows our heart. And if we have a question, seek proper advice, from the BIBLE, or a bible-smart, honest, Christian, person. That is what I do. And there is a difference between committing a sin in ignorance --- and "Practicing Sin" on a daily basis. We will still be sinners until the day we die -- or get Raptured [which ever comes first]. But we can KNOW that we are Saved !
Just as it is SMART and WISE, to set some canned goods and drinking water aside in the knowledge that Hurricane Matthew is coming to the mainland, USA., and it might be best to even evacuate your homes.... it is also very important to 'get to know God, by reading His Word, the Holy Bible.
Soldiers are trained well, to 'know their enemy, his tactics, mindset, etc.' Believe me [and God], We Christians are now in the fight of our life --- against the 'machinations of the devil' -- the dark spirit of the world, and all false religion, and that includes the dark, evil NWO ! And, again... dear brothers, once we lose or give up our 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights --- it's all over but the crying and shame ! ! Hello FEMA camps! BTW, the large print, KJV Bible makes for 'great body armor !' It's bullet proof.
Have a great day!
