Blurred Lines Made Clear

I’m having a really difficult time in this moment in history. I’ve wrestled with anger and hate these past few months, not because of anyone’s skin color or religion, rather their ideals. I’m not ashamed to admit that I have been in prayer A LOT MORE than before and have been watching a lot of sermons on YouTube; probably about 2-3 a day. I’ve had the pleasure and shame to discover John MacArthur in recent weeks. I feel pleasure because Dr. John MacArthur is probably the greatest theological and ministerial minds alive today. I feel shame because he’s been preaching for over 51 years and I’ve JUST discovered him a few months ago.

I just recently listened to one of his sermons and I had a few thoughts on what’s going on in the Government and on the streets. This upcoming election is probably the most important election in MY life and, almost certainly, the lives of everybody alive today. But the question is, what SIDE of the election are you? We’ve seen outrageous actions on BOTH sides of this arguments. Some of these actions are CLEAR evil acts and others seem to be a little “murky” as we haven’t gotten any real clear-cut answers.

Now, before I go on, I need to remind you that I, myself, am having struggles when it comes all this chaos. I have thought things and even said (and commented on) things that I am Ashamed of and wish I could take back. I’m imperfect. I’m a sinner. And I need God’s forgiveness through His Son, Jesus Christ.

We’ve come to a crossroad in our society, specifically America, that whichever road we take will either bring Prosperity as a nation, or Destruction. And I believe the lines are CLEARLY drawn. I don’t want to sit here and talk to the Unbeliever; this post won’t make sense to you and MAY even inflame you with rage and Judgement towards me which I understand. This is all Biblical(a). This post is for the Believer in our Lord and Savior.

Lately, and make no mistake, it’s not a coincidence that this is an Election Year, we’ve been worrying so much about being RIGHT in the argument of our Pride that we’ve failed to consider what is RIGHT in the eyes of The Lord. We sit here behind our keyboards, arguing to a computer screen and fail to realize that there is another human on the other side of the screen. We’ve lost the ability to conversate respectfully and politely. Again, I am the number 1 person of guilt in this area. And I ask for your forgiveness, and as hard as I want to stop this counterproductive action, I’ll do it again, I’m sure of it.

As I wrestle with my faith and my fellow Followers of Jesus Christ, I try to put myself in the shoes of the “Other Side”. I’m a registered Independent but am also a Conservative. I look at BOTH party’s platform and ask myself where would our God be if He were to vote this year. As much as I wrestle and try and squeeze myself into each platform as a Christian, I always come down to the same result, and the line is CLEARLY drawn.

I don’t want to make this a Political post; I really don’t. But, for a country to prosper as a nation, we MUST have The Lord, our God, as the Foundation of the structural government. Building a house on anyone other than the Creator, would mean sheer destruction and a complete collapse of a people and land(b).

Although BOTH parties have their problems, there is on party that has a Platform that the Lord DETESTS. As most of you have guessed from my previous posts, the platform that The Lord DETESTS is the platform of the Democrat party. Before you roll your eyes and keep scrolling, beloved, let me explain and please fight your pride back down your throat as I OFTEN must do.

Yesterday, I posted about Romans One and discussed how The Lord has “Given us over to evil” because of our Sexual Revolution, Homosexual Revolution and our Reprobate Minds. These issues USED to be a fringe belief that, we as Americans, allowed but didn’t necessarily endorsed. But now, these issues have been and are being celebrated in the Democrat party. If having sex with multiple partners is your thing, do it! Do whatever feels good! If you want to have sex with a member of the same sex, do it, and let everybody know so we can celebrate you! If you feel you’re a man in a woman’s body, or the other way around, chop off your maleness and let us know so we can celebrate it, oh, and if someone disagrees with you THEY’RE the bad guy and MUST be “cancelled”!

We know this isn’t a part of God’s plan. This isn’t what He designed us for. Unfortunately, these sins are generational as we inherited them from the very beginning of the creation of man. We have a Democrat party that has made Murdering the most helpless of us (Unborn babies) legal and even worth celebrating. Calling these unborn babies, a “Cluster of Cells” and even labeling pregnancies as a “Sexually Transmitted Disease”.

The Physician’s Association of Planned Parenthood is quoted as saying:

“Abortion is a treatment for unwanted pregnancy; the second most sexually transmitted disease.”

This is so far from what our God intended for us. We are made in His image and every life is precious in His eyes. John MacArthur says:

“Since the Bible says that the role of government is to punish evil doers and protect the good, you better have somebody in power who understands what is good and what is evil.”

Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamela Harris not only advocates for abortion, but believes that you can abort a baby up to the moment of birth and if the baby is born alive, the doctor can throw it in the dumpster and isn’t required to save his/her life. Loved ones, that is nothing short of Satanic.

The Pro Choice person will say something like:


“My body, my choice.”

Or

“A man shouldn’t have a vote in this topic because he’s not a woman.”

Well, to the first statement, I agree; my body, my choice. But the baby’s body is not HER body; it’s the baby’s body. And to the second statement; A man shouldn’t have a vote because he’s not a woman. I agree about with that statement. I’ve never been a woman, so I can’t speak for her, but I HAVE been a baby, and I speak for HIM/HER.

Folks, this is a CLEAR line that has been drawn. This isn’t the democrat party of your parents and their parents before them. This is the FURTHEST extreme left party that has ever existed up to this point in history here in the United States. Just look what’s going on in the streets today. We have law enforcement who, in most cases, must use deadly force to stop a potentially dangerous individual from causing great destruction, only for the PEOPLE to cause great destruction because of the action of the police officers…. And its celebrated. The term “White Silence is Violence” has basically been adopted by the left and the rioters and looters in the street. We’ve come to the point in this nation that looks at good as evil and evil as good. The Lord says WOE to the man who does this. WOE to them(c)! Blood will be shed in the future and many good men are going to do bad things to very bad people. This isn’t what our God wants for us. He wants us to live a FAITHFUL life and wants us to honor HIM first and foremost. We aren’t PROMISED a better life, but we ARE promised a promised prosperous AFTER life in paradise if we Repent, Confess and be Baptized.


“Yeah, but Trump is a crass, crude womanizer who only cares about himself!”


I submit to you that he is all those things. Although I DO personally think his heart is changing. Its subtle, but there IS a change going on. As Dr. John MacArthur says:


“You’re not voting for a pastor. You’re not voting for a spiritual leader. You’re voting for someone who has some sense of morality.”


I agree 100%. President Donald Trump isn’t my pastor or my spiritual leader, but he understands why he was elected, and I believe he has a deep love for this nation. He knows who voted for him and what these voters expect from him; to have a sense of morality and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Finally, as I close, remember, this nation was built of the foundation of God and His principals. To forget this means to forget your Master. We are all going to be held accountable for the actions we have taken on the day our Creator calls us to the other side. If you believe or you don’t, The Lord says that every knee shall bow, and every tongue will acknowledge God(d). We will be beaten, chewed up and spit out in God’s Righteous anger and judgment(e).

This is Biblical, it happened before, and I WILL happen again. Please pray that The Lord will open your eyes and we all will see where this nation is headed. We are dead in the water and the storm is upon us; the decision you make in the next few months will determine whether we WEATHER the storm or sink because of it.

Go, and workout your Salvation with fear and trembling.

Amen.

The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.

e) Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth! For the LORD has spoken: "I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its master, the donkey its owner's manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand." Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the LORD; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him. Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted. From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness- only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with olive oil. Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers. Daughter Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a cucumber field, like a city under siege.”

-Isaiah 1:2-8
