Revival & Restoration

America is in desperate straits. I have stated many times that we have fallen so far we could never recover in our own strength and with our human efforts. Only a true revival and reformation will save us. America the Beautiful still describes us on the outside. Internally, however, we are ravaged by spiritual death, societal disease, and moral decay. Like Canaan in ancient times, we have become a stronghold of giants.

Contending for the Faith Part 1

Commentary writer Matthew Henry said “a traitor inside the church is worse than a thousand outside the church.” Many times those of us who strictly contend for the faith are looked upon as hard liners or too conservative, but in society today fundamental truth needs to be shouted from the rooftops. When so called Pastors deny any part of the Bible as the word of God, or try to minimize or throw away what God has said, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Shepards are called to lead and feed the flock of God. Today not so much. (Isaiah 56:10-12) Pastors need to speak out on issues from their pulpit! Don’t be a sissy. Don’t be afraid because now is the time for men of God to be leaders not follows. We should change the atmosphere wherever we go. Find a man like that to support. Brave and strong in the Lord. By the way, get involved in what is happening today politically as well. Get out of the Church and do something. Preach issues from your pulpit. Tell your parishioners God will judge your vote. Vote Biblical values!

Most of our moral issues plaguing us today stem from nonsensical interpretation of the scriptures. Pastors, of which I am one, drive me crazy with the their fear of losing members. Preach the word, be a good Bible teacher. Don’t compromise. An old Preacher told me this over 40 years ago, “Son the people who are with you can’t leave you, and the people who aren’t with you can’t stay.” What he meant was those who want the truth will be drawn to you and those who want their ears tickled will leave. Great advice for any endeavor, just be yourself and say what is right and true and be passionate.

If you have as good Pastor, encourage him constantly. He needs it. If you go to a dead and dry church, get out of it. Christian’s don’t need junk food, they need to be fed from the Word. Rh

A Raging Battle

A phrase that I and many others have voiced on many occasions, “we are in a battle for the soul of America.” Truer words were never spoken. I write this short blog to lay out my feelings and more importantly my deeply held convictions.

First, I am an ordained Pastor who believes that righteousness exalts a nation, but evil rulers are an abomination to a people. At the present time we are ruled in both parties, but more so in the democratic socialist by demagogues. Ruling class pols that have no desire for the good of our nation.

Our battle is one of a spiritual fight, (Ephesians 6:10-18) and needs to be conquered as such! Years ago our Congress would debate and fight over spending and programs to help the poor or how to increase economic development and military spending. Not anymore.

Every issue that comes to the forefront today is a social construct. Each and everyone is a fist into the air against traditional values or Biblical values that America was founded on and churches and moral people accepted. The only way to defeat this enemy, and it is an enemy of the people, is to go full fledged into spiritual warfare. It’s not flesh and blood, but spiritual forces we are up against. Prayer is our weapon, but not the only weapon. We must use the shoes (Ephesians 6:15 to get out and do the work of an evangelist to save our country. God wants us to partner with him.

The battle is the Lord’s, but we are the foot soldiers. Hooray!

Happy New Year

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, most of which we break long before Valentine’s Day. But I am big on the Biblical concept of putting things behind us and looking forward. The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that “old things are passed away, behold all things are new.” The only time I look back on ‘22 is to rejoice in the victories God has wrought. Flipping a school board to conservative majority, and building my organization to where Christian Conservatives is now a part of the vernacular of our community. The new year is a clean slate of abundant possibilities. A clean slate to make it what we will. For me I want to drive a state into the ground and say I will not go back to any former issues, sin, or attitudes. I am here and I am only going forward, getting better and realizing the abundance that God has for me. New year means new challenges and new demons to conquer. Issues are before me and I am asking for direction on what and how to tackle them. I am asking for three things, 1- Revelation to grasp the hidden, 2 – Vision to know my focus, and 3 – Wisdom to apply knowledge to the problem. Let’s do this, 2023 you better know my name cause I’m going to conquer you!! Rh

Well It’s Almost Over

2022 has been a horrific year. More stolen elections and more illegals gaining entry to our wonderful land. I am still amazed that this is the America of today. As I look back to where we were as a country 45 years ago I am shaken that our lack of freedoms and governmental heavy handedness is accepted by so many. We as Americans were free and happy going about our business in everyday life oblivious to what was probably going on behind the scenes. .

Look back on various events and see through the eyes of what we know today. The assassination of President Kennedy, (yes I remember where I was on that fateful day) which ripped our tranquil nation with fears not realized before. Soon after the escalation of the Vietnam War, one we never intended to win. Robert Kennedy shot in LA. Hippie culture that promised free love and drugs to escape the new reality. Riots in Detroit and LA and the hatred of one tribe against another. But, on the west coast we soon saw a Jesus People movement that ushered thousands into the Kingdom of God. Movements that started them are still around making disciples for Jesus.

Fast forward to today, we are experiencing hellish times now as I said in my opening paragraph. God is merciful, as He did something new then after such chaos and turmoil. He can do it again. Revival to awaken the Church, and a Move of God to transform us into His Image. However the spiritual evil we have today after turning our back on God in this nation will take effort and the empowering of the Holy Spirit. We are in a spiritual battle of demonic activity that has changed our culture. The fight is on for the very soul of America. It will be hard and long, but we must fight for our nation, a nation dedicated to God on the shores of what later became Jamestown Va.

We should ask ourselves two questions, Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footman, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you. Then how will you do in the floodplain (thicket) of the Jordan?

It’s been raining for a while now!

Republican Party is on Life Support

As I write this I just finished reading where the uni party in DC will be attempting to do an amnesty for illegals who have entered the country. Oh the angst of big name republicans and media who are so concerned on the lack of victory in general elections. Oh they say they were bad candidates, yes some were, others received no funding from the old fat turtle leading the RINO party. Conservatism works every time it is tried. Real conservatives will win elections! Republicans don’t vote because they fell it does no good. RINO leadership is weak and too scared of missing a photo op to support real conservative candidates. Trump screwed up in Pa. McConnell screwed up in Arizona, by the way is anyone talking about the fraud and theft? Nope.

We flipped a radical left School Board here in my hometown. How did we do it. We got true conservatives pushing family values! We stood up and promoted and fought for them. WE WON. Novel concept. Try it, it works. Conservative Biblical Values!! Rh

Chase Bank Cancels Nonprofit’s Bank Account: ‘Religious Freedom Is Under Attack by Corporate America’

10/12/2022 01:39:15 PM Talia Wise

A former United States ambassador for religious freedom says Chase Bank abruptly closed an account associated with his nonpartisan, faith-based nonprofit organization with little explanation.

The National Committee for Religious Freedom (NCRF), a 501(c)4 political action nonprofit, opened an account with Chase in April. 

According to Sam Brownback, the group’s chairman and the former U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom under the Trump administration, the bank decided to “end their relationship” with NCRF and close the account after only three weeks. 

“We were surprised at being canceled by Chase,” Brownback wrote in an op-ed published in the Washington Examiner. When our executive director called to see if this was an error, he was informed that ‘a note in the file read that Chase employees were not permitted to provide any further clarifying information to the customer.'”

‘Prostitution Is Not a Victimless Crime’: 160 Caught in FL Sex Sting Including Teachers, Deputy Police Chief, Disney Worker

9/12/2022 02:44:24 PM Steve Warren

A sex sting operation in Florida resulted in 160 arrests during a week-long human trafficking operation, including a Georgia deputy police chief, a correctional officer, two high school teachers, and a Disney employee.  

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office announced during a press conference Friday that the seven-day undercover operation, “Operation Fall Haul 2,” uncovered two trafficking victims. It also identified another five possible victims during the operation that began on Aug. 30. 

According to the sheriff’s office, those who traveled to engage in prostitution were screened by detectives and social services organizations to determine if they were being trafficked or exploited by others. A follow-up will be conducted with those victims who are suspected to be sex trafficked or exploited.

“The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked,” Sheriff Grady Judd said at a news conference. “Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (Johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings.”

“Prostitution is not a victimless crime,” Judd added. “It results in exploitation, disease, dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence, and broken families.”

Florida means business. rh

Politics or Religion

The answer is both. We as Christians are called out into the world. We are salt and light. When Christians sit in the church and say politics is too dirty, I don’t want to get involved, I’m just going to stay in my four walls and pray, God will do the rest. They are missing the main point of Christianity. God wants a partnership with humanity, he wants to use us as salt and light to tear down the strongholds of evil and plant the flag of freedom and liberty to all people.

Some churches are waking up, they realize that we have sat around and allowed evil to overcome good. If the gates of Hell, according Matthew 16, shall not prevail against the church, then why are we sitting around doing nothing. We have misunderstood the meaning of that verse. That verse means the Church will be coming against evil. Evil will not prevail as we make advancements and take our rightful place in this world.

We should rule and reign with Christ even now in the spiritual world. We have been given the authority of Christ. We are to go out and fight to reclaim our heritage as a Christian nation.

Every day, and just yesterday I had someone tell me the same thing that I hear over and over. We are in a spiritual fight for this country. So very true! I don’t know about you but I plan on winning this battle. rh
