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

‘Quite the Survivor’: Micro-Preemie Given Only 10% Chance of Survival Celebrates First Birthday. Talia Wise CBN News

A Texas micro-preemie, who weighed just 1 pound and 5 ounces the day he was born, celebrated his first birthday on Tuesday, defying predictions of doctors who only gave him a 10 percent chance of survival.

Amandi Omokore-Allen defied all odds after spending 155 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) after his birth.

“He was under a pound-and-a-half and 23 weeks and two days,” Samantha Smith, a neonatal nurse practitioner at Pediatrix Neonatology of Texas and Ascension Seton Medical Center in Austin, told Fox News.

Amandi was only slightly more than halfway through the pregnancy, which is typically 40 weeks.

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

Word For Today

Do you ever get tired of fighting battles everyday? Which battle for the day is more important? Thank God there is diversity in the body of Christ. With that diversity we can join the fight in multiple areas that are of most concern to us. Where to start?

Abortion is always in the forefront. The WHO trying to destroy our medical freedoms. School boards need to be taken over by morally conservative parents. Primary elections are coming up, and the list goes on and on, but we can fight on multiple fronts.

Galatians 6:9 “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” That’s the word for today

New State Abortion Laws Put Supreme Court Under the MicroscopePro-life reforms in Arkansas, Montana, Arizona raise direct challenge to Roe precedent

A bevy of state laws restricting abortion are ratcheting up the pressure on the Supreme Court to reconsider the lawfulness of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

Arkansas passed a sweeping ban on any abortion performed in the state with an exception for those performed to save the health of the mother. The law marks the latest in a line of states considering or passing legislation intended to chip away at legal access to abortion. Pro-life advocates say that a conservative majority on the Supreme Court represents an opportunity for a post-Roelandscape in which abortion laws are returned to state governments, rather than established by the the federal judiciary. Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson (R.) said that his state’s legislation is directly intended to prompt the court to reevaluate Roe. “I signed it because it is a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade,” Hutchinson said. “I think there’s a very narrow chance that the Supreme Court will accept that case, but we’ll see.”
