With our latest fear of terrorism in America along with the latest movement to pray together as our country "reunites with God", if you watch closely, you will see the new American terrorist emerge in our daily newscasts AND in your neighborhood and in your next family reunion.
This new terrorist has been around this country for years - in fact, this new terrorist was not ever even considered a terrorist until these times. In fact, it seems that a majority of Americans were in these shoes in early America - but now, these 'old fashioned' folks will soon be considered terrorists.
Right now, this is only 'talk & thoughts' among the masses - but
soon, & mark my words, this person will become the new 'official' terrorist
If this country would ever figure out who the real enemy is, then this
country could actually be 'rescued.'
1) believers in evolution;
2) they have been satisfied with new bibles and most are satisfied with no Bible in their lives;
3) they have been satisfied with no Bible and no God in the schools;
4) they are Harry Potter fans;
5) their children probably haven't been to Sunday School in years, if ever;
6) their children have not been properly 'trained' to grow up to be a God fearing man or woman.
Along with these and many other ungodly & unscriptural facts that represent the modern American, most of those 'praying Americans' also accept homosexuality as just another lifestyle their kids can choose from - and they even believe God accepts it, too.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come ... having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth... so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith ... evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived ... But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core ...These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage ... there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit ... They that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition ... For the love of money is the root of all evil, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
That is the modern 'religious' American!
Just like any lost person of yesteryear, they are just deeper into their
deception today. Their conscience is more seared than ever before!
Unfortunately, most of those folks wouldn't even know where to look to see who the REAL enemy to America is. We look to Ephesians 6:12!
In fact, if any American would actually seek out this information, they would also see how it is that we are to fight that enemy.
How do I mean, "without God"? The answer is simple: over the past 100 years or so, they have had God's very words stolen from them by their pastors, pastorettes and seminary professors & scholars and replaced with an imitation bible and imitation pastors, preachers, apostles, prophets and teachers - Dead Bibles with Dead Pastors! Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans 1:21-25 There are over 400 various modern bible versions - and they all say things differently than the King James 1611 Bible - the Bible that has been in America since it's beginning. Even the so-called 'New King James' isn't even close to the King James 1611 - proof again how modern marketing deceives Americans. The Authorized King James 1611 Bible is fast becoming the most hated book throughout the entire country.
So America blindly goes into this war without the wisdom and understanding that is available only through God's mouth! Deut:32:1: Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. America continues on but without God's marvelous protection that He so wonderfully gave to America in its early childhood. (Read some TRUE American history for a change - see how God stepped in to rescue this country over and over!)
... with their loins being girt about with lies!
... with a breastplate of self-righteousness!
... with the wrong gospel of peace shod on it's feet!
The way of peace they know not; and there
is no judgment in their goings:
they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
... with a shield of scholarship & opinion!
... with a 'hat' that they make themselves!
... with the sword of the antichrist!
...with prayer and supplication
to a God who won't hear them!
Their description of these worldwide terrorists:
They live on the fringe of society yet still exist within society.
They speak with a 'final authority.'
They claim it to be their religious 'belief'.
They believe their beliefs are right and the world's way is wrong.
Their beliefs are very radical compared to all others.
They have a single spiritual book & they follow it closely.
They can be considered 'religious fanatics.'
They have left their own families.
They reject the American school system.
They teach their own children in their own homes.
They own guns & carry guns where they travel.
They have a soldier mentality.
They are very serious in their beliefs.
They believe they should fight over their beliefs.
They live strongly in what they believe.
They live look & live differently than everyone else.
They have no love for anyone else.
They speak with a hatred towards the American way of life.
They don't participate with the ecumenical uniting of America.
So, do you see it? Can you see that each of those characteristics can be applied to Bible believing Christians? I do - and I hear them already being applied!
Other folks are trying to build a physical kingdom and obviously will kill to do it. We are trying to build a spiritual kingdom - the likes of which does not mean to harm or kill anyone. Why are we such a threat?
A note from two committee members of the Republican GOPNews&Views online outfit have told me that we are more dangerous than Benny Hindladden! The chairman said that we should go back to the closet with our prayers, etc. One quote states: Fundamentalism . . . be it Islamic or Christian or Jewish . . . is frightening. You people scare me more than bin Laden - 'cause you're HERE.
How do your friends handle it when you want to use your Bible when you talk about this war on terrorism? How about when they want you to pray with everyone - celebrate the 'greatness' of this ecumenical movement with them as they say, "Isn't it wonderful how everyone is so united in prayer over this situation?"
Then, when you mention about the country being void of the words of God - the spirit of the antichrist being in the nation - false teachers, false prophets, wolves in sheep's clothing, the deep things of God that are no longer deep for you, etc... you know - all the stuff that prompts folks to 'turn us away', 'shut us out', and now, even more are actually getting angry at us - and soon, wanting us OUT of their way.
To everyone around us, we are truly becoming the Christian Extremist in America. We will be considered Religious Zealots. (Zealot - One who engages warmly in any cause, and pursues his object with earnestness and ardor. - It is generally used in dispraise, or applied to one whose ardor in intemperate and censurable) We preach One God, One Saviour, One Spirit, One Book and One Church and then the importance of the local church. We don't pray with everyone; we don't go to their churches; we don't take communion with them or even like they do; we don't do music like they do; we don't raise our kids like they do; we don't teach our kids like they do; we don't dress like they do in church or in the home; we don't 'appreciate' the news media & Hollywood like they do; we don't play the games and activities that they do; we don't; ... we don't; ... we don't, etc.
Ok, What DO we do?
Nothing anymore abnormal than what they do!
We go to church, too.
We pray with folks, too.
We do the Lords Supper.
We sing in our church and listen to music at home, too.
We train our kids (try to, anyway), too.
We have our kids in school, too.
We wear clothes, too (we just usually leave a little less uncovered).
We play games and activities, too.
Being a Christian can still be 'fun'. We pose no physical threat
We are Americans as much as anybody!
...we are willing to separate ourselves UNTO God...
So, these folks who say they 'love' God - those folks are our friends & family members who are concerned enough about America to be willing to 'throw out their differences' & worship God together. What can be so wrong with that, anyway? I mean, they are all holding hands, singing together, praying, hugging and being so united - after all, we are suppose to be the UNITED states, aren't we?
It's simple! It Goes Against the Scriptures! It always
has - it still does - and it always will!
Read the Ecumenical Movement for details within the scriptures themselves. Is your sword marked for battle?
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Matthew 15:9-14
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. John 9:31
It is God's will that EVERYONE be saved. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. I Timothy 2:4 If we follow Paul's pattern, God will draw them to Him through our witness with His words in the Bible - and we can just trust that God means it well when he says His word will not return void. (John 6:44, John 16:8-11, Romans 10:13-15) Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
If we truly 'love' our family and friends,
we will speak the truth to them!
Ephesians 4:15-19 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
Our love is more than just 'action' - it is
I John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
Their very salvation depends on that truth!
II Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And yet, to them, we are their enemy!
Galatians 4:16-18 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
II Corinthians 12:15 And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.
We will soon be considered the new terrorist in America - you just wait
