Contending for the Faith. Part 2

The most important thing is to preach Jesus, and the second most important thing is to preserve the most important thing.

That is why I get involved in politics. The Church has been silent too long in allowing the degradation of society. Pastor if you’re not preaching about a Biblical Worldview or preaching on Biblical values you are missing a chance to change society. Do you preach on Pro Life Sunday? Did you know there was a pro life Sunday? What about voter registration Sunday? Did you know there is a big push to legalize drugs? How about speaking out to stop sex trafficking or gender confusion? Yeah I know stop being negative. It’s not negative, when we as the collective church have not been proactive in social issues.

We have been really good at getting people “saved”, but what about discipleship. If we are to be world changers, then what about impacting our world with Biblical morality?

39% of Evangelical Pastors Reject absolute moral truth

69% Agree life is sacred

37% say having a faith is more important than what your faith is

51% of adult Christians claim a Biblical Worldview

It’s time we as the Ekklesia of God should be the leading force to transform this wicked world. Be a world changer. Live on the edge of societal revolution, because we know Truth by name, His name is Jesus!

Pray for Revival!

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.

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

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

A Nevada aerospace entrepreneur has donated $10 million to support Florida Gov. Ron Desantis’s re-election campaign.

News of the $10 million donation was published by the Friends of Ron DeSantis Statewide political committee on its website on Thursday. The donation was made on July 7 and is the largest single contribution that DeSantis, a Republican, has received.

The donor is Robert Bigelow, the founder of Bigelow Aerospace, a “general contracting, research and development company” located in Las Vegas attempting to develop an “expandable habitat” in space.
