Rush Limbaugh Just Asked The One Question About Obama’s Mosque Visit He Wasn’t Supposed To

In light of President Obama’s first official visit to a mosque while in office, he has received widespread criticism for both choosing a facility with links to Islamic extremism and thanking those in attendance for their purported contributions to national peace.

Some of the fiercest backlash came from syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh during his program Thursday. The veteran broadcaster used the controversial address to highlight some questions about Obama’s self-professed Christian faith.

“Why did he choose to become a Christian?,” Limbaugh asked, after painting a picture of the way Obama has characterized both Islam and Christianity.

“Barack Obama, he goes into this radical mosque in Baltimore [Wednesday],” he said. “He talks about how Islam has always been part of the fabric of America, and I stopped. I said, ‘Really?’ I didn’t know that.”

Not only does the president talk “about how awesome Islam is all the time,” Limbaugh continued, “at the same time, he’s out there, and look what he says about Christians. He says he is one. Look, he talks about them as bitter clingers and they hold on to their guns when they’re nervous.”

In light of his dichotomous position on the two faiths, the host wondered why Obama would have chosen to follow Christ.

“I’ve always wondered that,” Limbaugh concluded. “He’s such a defender and promoter of Islam, and, on the other hand, he and his party are constantly denegrating Christians. I don’t care what the issue is — whether it’s guns, whether it’s gay marriage, any cultural or social issue, or the ‘bitter clinger’ comments.”

 

They Asked, He (Jesus) Answered!

“It remains to be seen what God will do with a man who gives himself up wholly to Him.” -D. L. Moody

America, can you imagine what this country would be like if 78% of those who claim to be Christians actually loved God (John 14:21) enough to obey Him (Titus 1:16; 1 John 2:4)? I can! If only the American people would meet The Lord on His terms (Jeremiah 29:11-13).

John Adams, the second President of the United States, wrote an entry in his diary dated February 22, 1756,

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God…What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

With all the lawlessness that is abounding in America, genuine Christians know that grace does still abound over sin (Romans 5:20; 1 John 4:4). The Scriptures tell us, “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37). We are also told, “Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4), and that Jesus Christ is “the author and the finisher of that faith” (Hebrew 12:2). Those who have that faith, the faith of the Son of God, are crucified to the world, and the world to them (Matthew 16:24; Galatians 2:20; 6:14).

Yet, there are some that simply do not hear (1 John 4:5-6).

D. L. Moody, the Chicago preacher, said: 

“It remains to be seen what God will do with a man who gives himself up wholly to Him.”

In Matthew 4:9, the devil offered Christ the world when he said, “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.”

Yet, Christ created all things (Colossians 1:16-17).

Scripture tells Christians to ask of God, and He will give the heathen to them for their inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for their possession (Psalm 2:8).

That is the heart of God, and His objective is to “seek and save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10; Ezekiel 33:11).

Feeling within myself the life and the leading of the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14), and given that my objective is aligned with The Lord’s (Psalm 37:4), if the devil has the world to offer those who bow to him, what might the Lord offer to His children for His glory when asked (Daniel 3)?

He said that we are to open our mouths wide so He can fill them (Psalm 81:10).

He asks, “Who has believed the report of the Lord? And upon whom is the arm of The Lord revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1)

The Lord tells us that those whose hearts are perfect towards Him shall do great exploits (2 Chronicles 16:9; Titus 3:5)!

We are to call unto Him, and He has promised to show unto us great and mighty things (Jeremiah 33:3).

Jesus told His Church that they would do greater things than He did (John 14:12). Scripture goes even further to tell us that if all the things that were done by Christ were written down, all the books in the world could not contain them (John 21:25)!

Therefore, what God did for others in their day, He promises to do such, and more, in ours (Malachi 3:16; Hebrews 13:8). He is faithful to a thousand generations, which includes ours, Christians (Psalms 105:8).

I love to talk of the “cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12). Remember the God of these men?

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of Moses, Joshua, David, The God of Gideon, The God of Samson and The God of Elijah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, The God of Amos, The God of my Lord Jesus Christ “The Lion of the tribe of Judah, etc….

I also love to talk about the presence and power of God that abode upon our fathers of the faith: Martin Luther, John Knox, John Calvin, John Bunyan, Charles Spurgeon, John Wesley, George Whitfield, William and Catherine Booth, etc….

These men and woman were those who responded to the Lord, and they found Him! The results are that the world saw the Most High God in action and in demonstration through His Church (1 John 5:12).

It is one thing to talk of these men of God. Yet, it is another thing to know the God of our fathers, to walk with God and to be known of God. These that I mentioned proved Him and found Him to be exactly what Scripture declares of Him!

To do otherwise is to limit The Holy One of Israel.

“Those that teach that the day of miracles is past, teach the most disastrous lie ever told… Such lies are responsible for the prevalent lack of faith in God and have robbed Christianity of the power to demonstrate itself.” -John G. Lake

In America, how can anyone deny the divine hand of the Living God? They cannot! Where our forefathers left off, it is for the American Church to pick up.

Michele Bachmann Just Revealed Why She Thinks Jesus Is ‘Coming Soon’ With Unexpected Biblical Warning

Every now and then, a conversation regarding the separation of church and state presides in the media. Sometimes, politicians go to extremes, attempting to relate scriptures from the Bible to current events.

This is one of those times.

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., made headlines today when she made comments relating to foreign affairs, arguing that the current state of ISIS, Iran, and Syria all are a prelude to the arrival of Jesus.

Late last year, Bachman made some biblical claims, stating that she believes that Jesus is “coming soon,” and that “we’re seeing the fulfillment of scripture right in front of her eyes.”

In a radio interview done by Olive Tree Ministries, the former congresswoman warned the public about the alliance between Iran and Russia, stating that their current presence in Syria can have great implications for the future.

“What we see, which is about to happen, I believe, with Syria … the prediction is that Syria has fallen apart, quite literally,” Bachmann said in the interview. “But on a political basis, they would be quote ‘partitioned’ in that, although Russia today has control of Syria, they would be partitioning it so that the eastern portion of Syria would effectively be considered disputed, occupied territory by the Islamic State.”

“I believe that Putin and Iran have an alliance so that they can control, not only the production of global oil, but the distribution of global oil,” Bachmann went on to say in the interview. “And I believe that they’re positioning themselves so that someday they can invade Israel to be able to take over the vast stores of oil and natural gas that Israel is controlling, with this very unique new partnership between Iran and Russia in Syria.”

Bachmann fears that the world is close to giving ISIS legitimacy, and that consequently, the Islamic State would assume total control over Iraq and eastern Syria.

“I think this lines up with scripture,” Bachmann said on air. She then went on to explain that the race for natural resources provides the motivation for an invasion of sorts, especially when one considers the natural gas that Israel has recently discovered.

“[Russia and Iran] would support a global world order to keep their game going into the future,” she said.

Before finishing the interview, Bachmann encouraged Christians to heed to eschatological scriptures, and preach the word of God to others.

“We know that there is more prophesy of Jesus’ second coming even than there was in the first,” Bachmann said on air. “We also should be encouraged and empowered as believers in Jesus Christ — now more than ever — with the Bible in one hand, the newspaper in another, to say to our neighbors and co-workers and people at church, this is about the Lord speaking to the world that, ‘I am coming soon.’”

Angry Atheists Tear Down Post Office’s Sign- They Never Expected The ENTIRE Town’s Response

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation won a battle in Pittsburg, Kan., but they may have lost the war if their intention was to rid the city of “God Bless America” signs. FFRF used the power of its organization’s legal team to force the Pittsburg post office to remove a “God Bless America” banner from the side of the office which angered many residents.

That anger quickly turned into action as a group of First Amendment loving Americans decided to flood the town with free “God Bless America” signs. A local business, Jake’s Fireworks, purchased and distributed 1,200 yard signs and 300 banners to give away to the citizenry, who were more than eager to get their hands on the age-old symbolic statement of America’s trust in God. Jake’s Fireworks quickly ran out of the signs and are currently printing more.

Local politicians even got into the giveaway by being the ones to personally distribute the signs to the throngs of people lined up to get them. Cars for two blocks were lined up for the drive-by giveaway of the patriotic signage.

“We have no problem whatsoever with private individuals displaying whatever they want including ‘God Bless America’ on their personal property,” responded FFRF spokesperson Madeline Ziegler. “That’s exactly the perfect place for religious sentiments.”

According to the Morning Sun, others were not so pleased with the forceful removal of the post office’s banner. “It is outrageous that some would aim to divide a community over a banner that has been proudly displayed since Sept. 11, (2001),” wrote Kansas Republican U.S. Senator Jerry Moran. “I commend the Pittsburg community for rejecting this decision and I stand with them. The Constitution guarantees a right to freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. This banner is not only an expression of faith, but of love for country.”

On Iowa Caucus Day, Franklin Graham Just Put Out An Urgent Call To ‘Every Christian’

Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and founder of the Christian international relief agency Samaritan’s Purse, just issued an urgent plea to all Christians in America. Graham wrote in a Facebook post, “The upcoming elections are important to the future of our country, and every vote counts. It is so important that every Christian register and cast their ballot. Join me in praying for our nation.”

When I was in Iowa a few weeks ago leading a prayer rally, I asked one of the state troopers helping with our event to…

Christianity Today, a London based independent Christian media company, also encourages Christians to vote. Christianity Today offers ten biblically-based reasons for Christians to vote, including showing stewardship of our God-given resources.

Christianity Today contributing editor Krish Kandiah writes:

Voting publicly recognizes that we submit to the authority of the political system in our nation as established by God. (Romans 13:1-7) Voting recognizes the equality of all people and their right to speak and be heard. (Deuteronomy 10:17-19) It is one way that we can obey God’s command to seek the good of those around us and our nation as a whole. (Jeremiah 29:5-6)It shows that we care deeply about who our leaders are as we are urged to offer prayer and intercession on their behalf. (1 Timothy 2:1,2) It is a simple yet significant way we can do something about politics in our nation. ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing’, Edmund Burke. (Psalms 34:14) It makes a difference the way a grain of salt makes a difference, and that is how we are to influence our society for good. (Matthew 5:13) It is a privilege not to be taken for granted. Those of us who reap the benefits of living in a democracy should play a part in upholding democracy.Not voting is a form of voting, as it will influence the outcome. We need to take responsibility for our actions, as well as our lack of actions. (Luke 10:25-37) Voting has biblical precedence for example Acts 14:23 describes that the early Christians elected elders by voting.Voting is part of our stewardship to use all the resources we have been given in ways that honor God; to waste a vote is to squander a gift.
