If Only Christians In America Today Would Sing Louder!

When the hypocrites and accomplices to Adolph Hitler (Matthew 7:21-23) would sing praises to Jesus in the protestant churches in Germany, they would sing louder to drown out the noise of the Jews, Gypsies, and dissidents who were crying out for help while they were being hauled off in cattle cars to concentration camps–or even worse, extermination camps (Psalm 78:9).

When church services were over, they would find their cars toppled with the ash of the bodies that were burned in the incinerators.

To further the atrocities of these traitors to Christ, they were the ones handing off their youth groups to do Hitler’s killing for them.

These professors loved Jesus so much that they simply disobeyed His commandments with every opportunity they had (1 John 2:4).

I am sure most of you have heard:

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

– Martin Niemöller

Martin Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for this quotation. I have heard this quote many times before, but it was just recently that I learned that the man who said it was a prominent protestant pastor during the time of Hitler and the Nazis. It was learning this fact that made all the difference in the world in understanding where this quote stemmed from.

This quotation stemmed from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. His point was that Germans and, in particular, the leaders of the Protestant churches had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of millions of people.

Martin Niemöller was one of the first Germans to talk publicly about the broader complicity in the Holocaust and guilt for what had happened to the Jews. In his book, published in English as “Of Guilt and Hope” in January of 1946, Niemöller wrote:

Thus, whenever I chance to meet a Jew known to me before, then, as a Christian, I cannot but tell him: ‘Dear Friend, I stand in front of you, but we cannot get together, for there is guilt between us. I have sinned and my people has sinned against thy people and against thyself.’

Although he did suffer, spending the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps, he still recognized his own guilt for not speaking out against tyranny.

In fact, we could rewrite Niemöller’s quote quite well for today’s church leaders. It would probably go something like this:

First they came for prayer in school, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a student. Nor did I ever look into the fact that the Supreme Court is not above the law (Article 3, Sections 1 of The United States Constitution (Ephesians 6:18)).

Then they came to murder the unborn in their mother’s womb, and I did not speak out— Because I was not an unborn child. After all, I was told that the Supreme Court could sanction the murder of the innocent in the womb by simply calling it a woman’s choice (Proverbs 6:17).

Then they came for the legalization of two men or two woman getting “married” to upend America’s sovereignty and I did not speak out (as if to say the Supreme court injustices have a God given right to redefine what God Himself designed)— because I did not want to be called a hater or a bigot (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, Romans 1:24)

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me, because I never spoke out for anyone else (let alone God) (Ezekiel 3).

It is disgraceful what we are not seeing from the pulpits in America today. Rather than seeing a thunderous barrage of righteous indignation against murder of the unborn, and zeal against tyranny, injustice, immorality, we are hearing virtually nothing from over 300,000 pulpits…silence (Zechariah 1:15).

“To sin by silence, when we should protest, makes cowards out of men.”

We hear Church leaders (1 Corinthians 12:28) say, “Well, I don’t speak out against anything political.” The murder of innocent children, political? Homosexual marriage, political? A corrupt, wicked, and lawless administration that means to destroy your country and religious freedom, political?

Here we see in Niemöller a man who could not change the destruction that took place in the lives of millions of people. Prevention would have been better than curing. He could not go back in time and right the wrongs, but America still can.

If not now, then when? If not you, then who?

Together, we can turn this destruction around; but if you choose to remain silent, don’t be surprised when they come for you and there is no one left to speak out. And at that point, you can rest assured that others may sing loud enough to drown out your cries.

Supremes Contemplate Making War Against Heaven

The Supreme Court declared, “We are a Christian people…according to one another the equal right of religious freedom, and acknowledging with the reverence the duty of obedience to God.” –United States v. Macintosh (1931)

While there are some American people who are ignorantly anticipating the Supreme Court’s decision on what its definition of marriage is, it is important to remember that the job of the Supreme Court justices is to discover written law and apply written law. They are not there to legislate or to activate; nor is it their business to redefine what they do not agree with when it come to the One who gave law.

In essence, they have no business attempting to redefine marriage (Ephesians 5:31).

The people in this country are not ruled by the Supreme Court.  We are all ruled by the Lawgiver, and that includes the Supreme Court (Exodus 18:21; Isaiah 9:6).

“No enactment of man can be considered law unless it conforms to the law of God.” – Judge William Blackstone

The black-robed tyrants are like a bunch of pigeons picking at peas. They pick the cases they do not want to hear and choose the ones they do. It is their duty and obligation to interpret law against crime, not promote crime (1 Peter 2:14).

Every step of the way, the states have combated and ignored the established laws concerning marriage in an attempt to overthrow America’s sovereignty.

We Recognize No Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus! [April 18, 1775]” –John Hancock

There has never been, and never will be, marriage that is based on sodomy. It is an institution that belongs exclusively to the Church and not to the state. God-ordained marriage cannot be changed regardless of what the people or the judges may say or what the people want if contrary to God’s moral law.

Furthermore, when you look to Canada, you can see this has everything to do with giving way to the sodomites while giving permission to attack and assail anyone and everyone who disagrees with their abominable behavior. This includes telling the Church whom they have to marry; telling homeschoolers that they can no longer teach their children that sodomites are an abomination; and even going so far as to attempt to lower the age of anal consent from 16 years old to 14 years old. What does that have to do with marriage? Nothing (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Roman 1:24).

As the Supreme Court looks at the issue of redefining marriage, the first “sodomite president” Barack Obama and his administration have already asked and gotten the Supreme Court to strike down the federal law defining marriage as a union between only a man and a woman.

Of course, to do that, Obama had to set the stage. He repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and placed 225 homosexuals in key positions. Then he appointed a radical lesbian to the bench of the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan.

Elena Kagan is the former dean of Students at Harvard. Contrary to Harvard’s founding mottos, “For Christ and the Church” and “For the glory of Christ,” Kagan is known for “Queerifying Harvard.”

During her tenure, she did the following:

  • Kagan hired former ACLU lawyer William Rubenstein to teach “queer” legal theory, in which he taught courses on taking up new identities such as bisexuality, transgender f**k, involving polygamy, sadomasochism, and the sexuality of minors.
  • Kagan also hired other radicals (a lesbian and a transsexual) to teach transgender law courses, as well as Cass Sunstein, who has written in support of polygamy and free-for-all marriage relationships.
  • Kagan viciously attacked our military in opposition to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” even banning military recruiters from coming on campus. Kagan’s attempt to ban the recruiters was unsuccessful; and even after losing her legal campaign, she encouraged students to continue protesting them.
  • Kagan’s radical activism on campus was so toxic that there was even a campaign to make the entire university trans-inclusive, using Harvard’s “gender identity” non-discrimination policy to spew gender confusion among students on campus.

Elena Kagan has never judged a case a day in her life. Yet, Obama, unqualified for office himself, has seen fit to “qualify” her for the Supreme Court.

America needs to come to terms and understand that no president, no administration, and no Supreme Court has a right to break God’s laws.

America, your only hope is responding to the crimes of those who believe that they are above the law, which they are not. Impeachment and indictment are the rightful remedies for such criminals, found in Article 2, Sections 4, and Article 3, Section 1 of our Constitution.

“If the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what the Constitution says, then we have ceased to be our own rulers (under God), and the Supreme Court is our ruler.” President Andrew Jackson

As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord (Joshua 24:15)!

To Spit Against Heaven

Are YOU The Next Braveheart Or Esther?

“Those Who Fear the Face of God Don’t Fear the Face of Man.”

I’ve got a question for you. When has God ever failed a faithful man or faithful woman of God or His Church?

The Bible takes just 70 hours and 40 minutes to read at pulpit rate, from cover to cover. The numbers of words in the Bible are about 622, 771 in the Old Testament, and 184,590 in the New Testament, totaling 807,361 words.

There are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament.

After all of the hours of reading these books, I have to ask you again: when has God ever failed a faithful man or faithful woman of God or His Church?

Can’t find it? Neither could I.

I know that many are afraid of what is going on in America today. However, remember that he who fears the face of God does not fear the face of man, and he who fears the face of man does not fear the face of God (Proverbs 14:26).

To those of you who love God, understand that there are more than 110 places in Scripture where we are told “Fear not,” “Do not be afraid,” and “Do not fear!”

To put this all in perspective as to what is going on in America (Psalm 9:17), it is men who are failing God, not God failing men (Psalm78:8-11).

God is willing to give the Church what it is willing to fight for (1 Timothy 6:12). Yet, if the Church is not willing to fight, neither will it continue to possess that which was fought for.

“Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.” -1 Kings 8:56

There once was a man who had to reach a certain destination at a certain time, but he was caught in a snowstorm. He came to a river that had frozen over and thought to himself, “How thick is the ice? Will it hold my weight?”

The ice felt solid. So, he reached a little further and tapped on the ice to test whether it could hold his weight. He took a branch from a tree and smacked the ice to see if it would crack….nothing.

As he crawled across the ice on his stomach, sweat began to fall down his brow; and he began to tremble with fear, thinking that at any moment he could fall through the ice and go to an icy grave. He took the branch that he had and continued to tap the ice in front of him as he crawled on. The man covered about forty-five feet in roughly forty-five minutes. He was absolutely terrified.

As he was crawling inch by inch, he heard a strange sound. He heard singing, and then a rumbling. He looked behind him to see another man with a cart full of coal whipping his horse in front of him, slamming across the ice, singing at the top of his lungs.

The man stood up and felt like a fool because the ice was solid right through to the bottom. The knowledge that he received from a demonstration of faith released him from all of his fears.

The point: don’t fear that God will not keep His promises. They are solid through and through. You can trust Him.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6

Sympathy For The Devil – A Means To Destruction

There was once a story of a merciful captain of a ship. While a passing ship shot at the captain’s ship, the captain showed mercy and warned him not to shoot again. The ship shot at him again, but the kind captain did not retaliate. His “mercy” ended up bringing destruction not only upon himself, but all those on his ship.  By allowing the enemy to attack him twice without retaliation, the passing ship shot a third time and destroyed them all.

This is the story of the merciful, American people who tolerate the crimes of those who serve “We the people.”

As I have often said, “Soft judges produce hardened criminals.”

What it comes down to is: “Sympathy for the devil, the devil that means to destroy” (John 10:10).

To illustrate my point, here are a few headlines from across America.

“Wall Street Analyst Uncovers Clinton’s Fraud”

“Jeb Bush Destroyed Education in Florida – He Owns Common Core”

“Marco Rubio Announces Presidential Campaign Even Though He Is Constitutionally Ineligible”

Marco Rubio, who is constitutionally ineligible to be president, has also revealed himself as an establishment guy who sympathizes with the sodomites.

I wrote last week that the people advocating and attempting to legitimize these individuals are the very ones who are claiming to stand against lawlessness. However, they are helping give these individuals in government a platform.

These people put up politicians who are alleged to have broken the law over and over again through treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors against “We the people.” Many of these criminals have been in government for 20-30 years.

If you were to do what the American people have allowed government to do, you would be thrown in prison. In their hypocrisy, they strain at the gnat and swallow the big camel (Matthew 23:24).

As much as the press magnifies these corrupt representatives to legitimize them, I stand on the opposite end of the spectrum to show you from history that to overlook the crimes of these individuals will be to America’s demise.

I know that many in America today are led to believe that, for some reason or another, those who represent the American people are somehow above the law. Many Americans believe these people can do whatever they want, without consequence of transgressing the law which they swore to uphold.

Yet, when reading the Declaration of Independence, which many believe to be the preamble to The United States Constitution, I extract that our representatives derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Put into perspective the presupposition that God is and that He is the giver of rights, as the Declaration of Independence clearly proclaims. Our rights come from God, and the powers of the government come from the people. Here are some phrases found in that document:

  • “The Laws of Nature and of Natures God”
  • “That all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”
  • “Appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world”
  • “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence”

When President John F. Kennedy stated, “The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God,” it sounded like he took the time to familiarize himself with this country’s founding documents.

We can see that those who serve “We the people” bear witness to this very fact by placing their hand on the Bible and swearing on oath, both to God and man, that they will uphold the laws found within the “Empire of Laws” (God’s moral Law found in Exodus 20; The God of The Mosaic institution; Common Law). Furthermore, they pledge that they will protect such from all enemies both foreign and domestic.

Knowing the above, I ask: where do the president, the Supreme Court justices, senators, and representatives derive the right to break the laws of God’s government?

They can all be removed through the impeachment process, as well as be indicted for their crimes against the people.

Article 2, section 4 of The United States Constitution reads: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

This applies to The President (Barack Obama has at least 900 documented examples of lawbreaking, lying, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy & waste), Vice-President, and all civil officers (includes both the supreme and inferior Court justices, who hold their offices during good behavior). Our judges are to discover and apply written law, not create or legislate law (Article 3, Section 1 of the US Constitution).

These are not the type that can be saved; they are the type that must be stopped. America’s future depends upon it. Countries are destroyed for the lack of impeachment; and in many of these cases, indictment must follow impeachment.

Sympathy for the devil only goes one way. The devil does not play by the rules. He stands against them.

Where do you stand?

Don’t Put Your Hope In ‘Conservatives’

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” –President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Conservatives are continuing on in their venture of shamelessness and stupidity, debating over the next presidential nominees that have been handpicked. Furthermore, in many cases, their records have proven them to be corrupt and ineligible.

Yet, all of this is overlooked by those who should know better. They go on as if to ignore the crimes that have been committed or as if it is the norm for representatives to violate their own oaths and transgress the law.

I ask you: are the conservatives talking about bringing Hilary Clinton to justice? Or are they talking about her chances of becoming the first woman president?

Are they talking about Marco Rubio and his ineligibility? Or are they talking about his chances of becoming the President of the United States? (Article 2, Section 1 The Constitution of the United States)

How about Jeb Bush? There is no difference between him and what America is complaining about concerning the current administration.

Or what of Rand Paul, the libertarian (without regard to the law), who wants to appease both the sodomites who want to marry along with supporters of traditional marriage?

Rand seems to believe that man created government and that he has a right to erect a government in his own image.

It is as if The Lord is saying to America, “You set up Kings, but not by Me” (Hosea 8:4).

The conservatives get the American people talking about the wrong issues; then, they get the same results. All the while, the American people are trying to figure out why they are confused (Daniel 9:7). This process is insanity: doing the same things and getting the same results – while expecting different results (Hosea 8:7).

These are the same people who have helped turn America’s glory into shame because they have left off knowledge and common sense.

Do you want resolve? Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. Bring forth judgment (Amos 5:24)!

For those who realize that this current, criminal administration has done nothing but bring disease, disgrace, lies and deceit, racial division, hatred, huckstering, socialism, poverty, world embarrassment, an illegal healthcare system, tyranny, and economic downfall to this country, also realize that the only remedy for corruption is justice (Psalm 94:16).

America needs to realize that across this nation, we are all saying the same things because we are all rooted in the same principles (Hosea 4).

Shut the mainstream programming off, especially the conservatives; for they, along with their viewers, are responsible for painting America into a corner.

But, some may ask, “Why should I care anymore? There is no hope.” (Jeremiah 18:12)

Yes, there is. The hope is found in what you do with the truth that has been given to you (Colossians 1:27). Do all that you can do, and leave the results up to God. But you first have to do.

There is a story told of a mule that fell into a well. As it sat in the pit of that well, it whined and whined until it could whine no more. During that time, one of the farmers heard the mule, came over, and noticed that it fell into that well and knew that if he did not get it out, it would soon die. So, the farmer gathered some of the local farmers to see how they could get the mule out. Without any lengthy debate, they just decided to leave that mule to die in the pit of that well. It was worthless, or so they thought. Each of the farmers went back to their farms to get their shovels, headed over to the well, and started to scoop the dirt to bury the mule.

Each scoop of dirt that was thrown into the well would land on the back of the mule. In desperation, with each scoop of dirt that was meant to bury him, he would simply shake it off and use the dirt that fell from his back as a stepping stone to trot right out of that hole that they meant to bury him in.

To those who are shaking it off and are in the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12; James 2:18), to those who are bringing forth a labor of love (1 Thessalonians 1:3), to those who are bringing forth Judgment to establish righteousness (Isaiah 26: 9), and have come to the realization that we are overcoming this world (1 John 5:4) and are made more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Romans 8:37) and continue to stand in this warfare (Ephesians 6:12), I salute you.

Remember, God does not need a majority to prevail–just an obedient minority (1 Corinthians 1:29).

God is willing to give to His church what they are willing to fight for.
