SHOULD AMERICA’S CHRISTIANS SHIFT INTO THE ATTACK MODE?

What’s happening to Christians around the world …

may well be a forewarning of what is planned for America’s Christians, including our children and grandchildren.  Almost every day the media reports new horror stories about ISIS and it’s unspeakable hatred for and atrocities against Christians, including children, and how such anti-Christian movements are building throughout the world.

The cover of the April, 2015 issue of World Net Daily’s magazine “Whistleblower” refers to the horrors as The growing abuse, imprisonment, torture and murder of Christians worldwide.

The 12/26/14 Wall Street Journal describes it:

There is an onslaught against Christians in the Middle East, who are being butchered, crucified, and beheaded in Syria and Iraq, and persecuted and threatened in subSaharan Africa, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, and elsewhere…

How could the above possibly be an onrushing fate for America’s true Christians, especially if “God is in control”, as our nation’s clergy have so long contended? Their net effect, of course, “Dont worry about it; God is in control”,  has been to confuse and neutralize  millions of well-meaning Christians so they are incapable of even defining the enemies of our God-given freedoms and thus of their concept of Christian duty in our crisis world.

Bear in mind that just a few of the priceless gifts God has given us: the laws of life; the laws of happiness; the laws of government; the laws of liberty; the laws of marriage; the laws of order and design… are all set forth in the Bible, and we Americans have been given the sacred right of “choice” between whom we will obey and serve: I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,  that both thou and thy seed may live (Deut 30:19; Deut 30:15).

His Word makes it crystal clear that freedom is not free – rather, freedom carries with it huge responsibilities and calls for eternal vigilance in freedom’s defense and perpetuation.

Enemies of our God-given freedoms

Here are a few biblical descriptions of the ongoing nature of the enemies of our freedoms:  Their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace they have not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes (Rom 3:15-18).  ALSO…your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet.5:8).  The thief [Satan] cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy (John 10:10). [NOTE: Our Creator’s examples of our choice between life and death span the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. Only a few are referenced in this writing.]

God’s reminder of Who is in control

One of the most serious contemporary examples of God’s position on our choices relates directly to the raging issue of the legalization of homosexuality and lesbianism, and the consequences from Him if we insist upon disobeying Him, as did the people of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah which He burned to the ground. Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire…(Genesis 19:24).

Homosexual and lesbian “vile affections”

Regarding same-sex marriage

…who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator…for this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (Romans 25-28). Current manifestation of the above:  Same-sex marriages (an increasing rage in America today) are abomination to our Creator.

Pending Consequences to America – God is not mocked…

Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Gal 6:7).

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalms 11:3),

1962 Engle v. Vitale : The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that any kind of prayer, composed by public school districts, even nondenominational prayer is unconstitutional government sponsorship of religion; 1948 McCollum v. Board of Education: the U.S. Supreme Court ruled:  the Court finds that religious instruction in public schools is a violation of the establishment clause and is therefore unconstitutional.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalms 11:3)

George Washington, founder of America and first U.S. President

“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible”.

Clergy strips U.S. electorate of vision and power to fight

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he (Prov. 29:18).

How has this happened? By their inverting the term “love” to one of passive turn-the-other-cheek tolerance even of recognized evils; thus stripping away the action and duty elements from the faith. Thus the American people (voters in the upcoming elections) will have no comprehension of how to vote on biblically based substance, especially God’s laws of liberty.

This is love

…that we walk after his commandments (II John 6).  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth [Christ- ed] is not in him (1 John 2:4)

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword (Mat 10:34).

The Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).

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 (Eph. 6:12).

Samples of God’s biblical mandates that we go on the attack

Preach the word; be instant in season, and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine (II Tim 4:1-2).

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God  (Eph 6:17).

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth (Rev. 3:15,16).

I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land… (Deut.30:16).

Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man (Eccl.12:13).

Occupy till I come (Luke 19:13).

The righteous are bold as a lion (Prov 28:1).

Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? (Ps 94:16)

Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free (Gal. 5:1).

Ye are the salt of the earth… Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Mat 5:13-14,16).

ARE THE ABOVE FOR OLD TIMES – ONLY?

Heaven and earth will pass away, but the word of the lord endureth for all generations Mat.24:35

his truth endureth to all generations (Ps 100:5).

I am the Lord. I do not change (Malichai 3:6).

CONCLUSION

Issues and events change with time, but the laws of liberty do not change. God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

SOLUTION TO AMERICA’S COLLAPSING GOD-GIVEN LIBERTIES

AMERICA’S DILEMMA: “Obama’s… new world order spells death to liberty and a complete conversion into a socialist fascist state.”  (Tea Party, 2 May 2015)

I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you (Leviticus 26:17).

The solution- YES – AMERICANS WHO PRIZE THEIR GOD-GIVEN LIBERTY MUST SHIFT INTO THE ATTACK MODE

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (II Chronicles 7:14).
