God is calling America to repent, turn from its evil ways and turn back to Him. We cannot continue to call evil good and expect to be blessed. And personally, I believe we are running out of time.
I tell my Bible study ladies all the time, we need to be bold, courageous and stand firm on God’s worth, no matter what’s going on in the world. The world will try to silence you and satan will try to stop you when you are standing with God.
It’s happening all around us, even in our own communities. For example, some person wanted to stop the tent revival in Roberta recently. They called the state patrol saying safety protocols were not being followed. That was not the case at all, in fact it was a big fat lie. Some self-proclaimed gestapo person didn’t like people worshiping together.
When God is working and people are seeing Him work, satan has to come in and try to stop that work. That sometimes is by using other people whose hearts certainly are not on God.
People it seems, have lost all sanity, but in reality, they are letting evil rule them. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people feel the need to tattletale on other people, whether it’s for not social distancing or not wearing a mask. That’s something little kids do when they don’t get their way. During Nazi Germany, Jews told on other Jews, so guess we really shouldn’t be surprised, but you just think this wouldn’t be happening in America and that we would have learned a thing or two since then.
What happened to mind your own business? We need to relearn to stay in our lane and worry about our own selves and let others worry about themselves. You won’t answer for them, only for yourself.
I also cannot believe so-called pastors have come out to condemn the President for standing with a Bible in front of a church rioters tried to burn down. We get more upset about someone holding a Bible than we do about businesses being destroyed or lives being destroyed.
I know some have tried to spin it and say he took advantage of the situation for a photo-op. That never, ever crossed my mind, nor would it, no matter who it was holding the Bible It’s certainly better than defaming a monument or looting a store.
Those same people tried to say tear gas was used to move protesters out of the way. That was not true either and if anyone would take time to seek the truth they would find it. First of all, if tear gas had been used, the police and security would have been wearing gas masks because the tear gas would affect them as well.
President Trump was making a statement. I got it. Faith over fear; the Bible is truth and God will prevail; one nation under God. It was okay for Clinton or others to hold a Bible up but not Trump.
I am not one of those who thinks Trump cannot do anything wrong because he does and doesn’t always say the best things, but I believe he is trying. He gets grief no matter what he does and has yet to keep any of his salary. He donates it to various things. Personally, I don’t know how he takes and takes everything that is hurled at him and keeps on going in trying to save America from those who want us to join the New World Order.
Because of the riots last week many missed other pertinent things going on. If they keep you distracted long enough, you won’t have a clue about what’s really going on around you.
Doesn’t it bother anyone that rioters or protesters are not social distancing and millions can attend a funeral because of national attention but we have had to bury loved ones without being able to attend the funeral or even visit them in hospital and we still can’t totally congregate at church? Just doesn’t make any sense. Pelosi wants you to stay on lockdown and obey authority but says rioting and looting is a good thing for the cause. There is something much deeper going on and we need to wake up people.
I have had to ask whose wisdom are most people following, the government’s or God’s? Sadly even leaders and pastors of churches are not flexing their faith muscles either and allowing the government to tell them what to do which is unconstitutional.
Church should be a sanctuary, a refuge from the world and bringing the world and it’s craziness into it, is not pleasing to God. People don’t seem to understand that wearing masks, etc. are just recommendations, they are not laws, nor are they mandated. I still say if you want to that’s fine but don’t let your fear extend into my freedom and respect my right not to comply with unconstitutional recommendations. It has been way to easy to get people to comply. Kudos to those churches which found ways to remain open this whole time.
If those people taking a knee for a cause would take a knee for Jesus Christ, we would start to see things change in our world. One day every knee will bough and every name confess. He’s the only way and the only cause truly worth fighting for every day. Blessings.
