Lessons from Egypt and Communism

I was reading in the Bible this morning about Egypt Chapter 1:8-22 .  It says this:

Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.”

11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh.12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly.

15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. 18 Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?”

19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.”

20 So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own.

22 Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

Looking back on Obama’s reign I realized that Obama was much like this new evil ruler of Egypt.  He new of nothing about God’s ways and looked at the American Christians and decided there are far too many of them and decided he was going to marginalize us and oppress us through his executive orders and policies.  In essence he said, “We must make a plan to keep them form growing even more.  If we don’t and if war breaks out, they will join our enemies and fight against us, they will escape from the country.”  Christians have joined with non-Christian Americans to fight against the oppressive Obama regime.  Christians were tired of losing their jobs, paying taxes for abortion services, and being forced to go along with an ideology that went against their beliefs.  The non- American Christian who was equality annoyed by Obama’s oppressive taxes on the rich and middle class, moving jobs away from America, the loss of liberty and freedom to let others believe what they wish, and the lies portrayed by the media joined forces with the Christian population against this tyranny.

What was the Egyptian’s response, they made the Israelites their slaves.  They appointed brutal slave drivers over them, hoping to wear them down with crushing labor. The Egyptians worked the people with out mercy and made their lives bitter.

Obama made the Americans his slaves, and oppressed us by his continual policies.  Examples of this was the Affordable Care Act, making promises that everyone can keep their doctor and everyone would be able to afford health care.  And in order to be sure you pay for this oppressive healthcare he put a tax of $1200 if you did not buy into it, just to be sure you would.  Or his open boarder policies letting in millions of Muslims refuges with only a handful being of the Christian faith.  I have seen it was only 12 Christian Arabs that where let in to 200, but the numbers are still very small in comparison.  To make matters worse he allowed them to vote, gave them free welfare, healthcare, sanctioned cities, and free university tuition,  all off the backs of the hard working American people.  I am still paying for my tuition today of $40,000 it was $60,000 and still have not been able to get my degree because I don’t want to rack up more debt.  He also indoctrinated Communist and Marxist minded teaching in our universities and even in our own churches. This is just some of the ways he has oppressed our American people.   Allowing mosques to teach Sharia law and spread it’s hate to all Christians, Jews, women and gay people to which they teach are infidels, women are treated as not being worthy, as the scum of the earth.  This is how he has oppressed our people.

Then Pharaoh told the Hebrew mid wives to kill the boy babies to stop the growth of the Jews.  But they feared God and would not do it.  Why boy babies, because the are stronger then women and can fight back.  How did Obama participate in this?  Taxes payers once again where demanded to fund Planned Parent Hood!  They provide no prenatal care.  Not only did they fund abortions, but full term abortions and even killing babies after they were born.  All under the notion that a women has a right to her life but the baby does not.  The Muslim religion would also like to kill those who do not adhere to their ways and they have raped women so to produce offspring that would advance their race.  They used Planned Parent Hood as an “auto parts” store, except with babies body parts to make lots of money to one again advance their cause all in the name of “science”.  I believe we where very close to our government deciding who lives and who dies through this evil money making company. Pharaoh would eventually kill all living boy babies except Moses who God spared to delivered the Israelites out of Egypt.

Obama’s regime was indeed very oppressive, but God has sent us a “deliverer” in a sense that President Trump does not care about political correctness, he loves our country, with liberty and justice for all!  Not just the liberal minded communist.

But always remember Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  He will return some day and bring a New Heaven and a New Earth!

Don’t Blame Me, My Christian Friends, or My Children because You Take Your Life!

 

Proverbs 14:1-35 The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. Whoever walks in uprightness fears the Lord, but he who is devious in his ways despises him. By the mouth of a fool comes a rod for his back, but the lips of the wise will preserve them. Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox. A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies. …

After all the rhetoric I listen too from the Extreme Left I find myself very troubled by the undertones and manipulation they are sending out to the American Public.

By no means do I hate any person ever, but I do hate sin and I also hate the Gaslighting, manipulating (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity,  that has happened in our country.

Before 1973 homosexuality was removed as a mental health disorder.  The fact is that the suicide rate, drug addiction, depression, anxiety, obesity, sexually transmitted deceases, suicide rate is very high among the people who find themselves in this life style.  It’s around 47% depending where you get your sources.  This statistic has not changed much over the years even before it became so awesome to by gay (I remember when this meant happy).  Like wise the suicide rate and same issues are same for the transgender and other people suffering from gender identity or disorders.  This could also be said that people who suffer from addiction and anorexia also suffer with the same mental health issues.  Many times these people have experienced some traumatic event in their lives that makes them start to go down an unhealthy and destructive road.  Sometimes people just start to experiment with other genders (trying it on) to decide who might be a good “fit” for them.  You could also suffer from the same problems if you decide to “try on” drunkenness, gambling, pornography, shopping excessively, hording, working, eating lots of sugar, caffeine, pets, or what ever else you like to do to help you feel better about the bad day you just had.( I said pets because a 2 grader said her goal was to have 1000 cats and she thought this would be great as long as her dad took care of them…. I digress 🙂  I do know some people are just curious.   I also  know  if you practice an unhealthy lifestyle long enough it just becomes something you think is okay to do or at least you make peace with it.  Saying to yourself well I’m a good person in general I don’t see any problem with it.  Or for some of us we suffer from generational disorders and just except “this is the way my family is.”  Soon enough you actually think your sin is actually who you are.  This is very dangerous, keeping you stuck in your own sin here on earth, it’s a chain around your neck you think you could never break free from.

Okay so lets get to the problem.  I have been hearing celebrities and people suffering from these psychological problems start to blame Christians for the high suicide rate among people suffering from their sinful choices.  It is a very sick form of manipulation that I find very difficult to handle.  The mentality is, “If you don’t think my lifestyle is worth supporting there are many people who will commit suicide because YOU don’t support my lifestyle, making me feel so bad about my sin that I may not be able to live because YOU don’t except my choices.  Yes I do not think it’s a good choice to participate in anything sinful because of all the things that are mentioned above.  But they are trying to blame Christians for all their stinkin’ thinkin’.  The “If you don’t like me than I will kill myself, it’s your fault!”  This could be very devastating for our children and their psychological well being.  I had two friends.  One took his life and left a note to my other friend telling her that one of the reasons he took his life was because she didn’t like him.  How horrible for her!

I was listening to a transgender man on a radio interview who made a remark, “No wonder the suicide rate is so high when people like the Catholic hospital will not let us be who we are meant to be.”  This is sickeningly manipulative in my opinion.

Here is the excerpt:

And while Conforti received his surgery a few months later at a different facility, he said he still felt the sting of betrayal from the medical facility he grew up attending. Citing the problem of suicides in the transgender community, Conforti said he’s pursuing the suit so that no one has to face a similar experience.

Or during the women’s march Ashley Judd’s rhetoric.

Here is an excerpt from her speech:

“Conversion Therapy, the new gas chambers shaming the gay out of America, turning rainbows into suicide.”

These are just a few I have heard. This just breaks my heart.  We all suffer with our own demons, but to blame it on everyone else is very manipulative.  God loves all of us.  If you want peace repent of your sin ask the Lord to be the Lord of your life.  God is the ultimate Physician and Healer.  God is a good Father and he disciplines us as He sees fit.

I am asking that our children nor anyone else be the blame for someone taking their own lives.  That is not okay!

If you know anything about Spiritual Warfare Satan is having a great time deceiving all of us.  He is the master of manipulating. If you let evil take over your mind then you will be doomed!

I shutter to think about what our lives would have looked like at least for Christians who refuse to conform to this Evil World!  I think we would have found ourselves jobless, homeless, or in jail just for our beliefs. I think we could have been blamed and jailed for a suicide that was committed because we spoke the truth!  I praise the Lord that He has given us some reprieve from the road we where going down.  For know we have our freedoms and liberties.  But there will come a time we will not.  You will either need to wear the mark of the Beast or die.

James 5:15  And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Remember Jesus loves you and died your you on the cross!!! Repent and turn to Him.

No Time for Apathy and What Would Jesus Do?

Let’s face it the World is groaning under the weight of sin, especially our very own beautiful United States of America.  How did we get to this point?

Jeremiah 6:15 says this.   “Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the LORD.

Christians have once again ignored the small subtle signs of compromise and the chipping away of our culture.  We did not say anything when people where doing something wrong.  Why I wonder?  Was it because we didn’t care?  Did we think God would just work it all out?  Where we too caught up in our own selfishness to address things that are just wrong?  Or my suspicion if you are a little like me you didn’t want people to be upset with you and you just wanted to love people by keeping the peace. We have hoped that by just throwing up a prayer to God that everything would be ok?  Or did you think you would be ok that’s good enough?

Zachariah 8:17  Don’t scheme against each other. Stop your love of telling lies that you swear are the truth. I hate all these things, says the LORD.”  I would venture to say that if you don’t say anything at all that is the same as lying.  I am not sure why we would lie to someone or not let someone know that what they are doing is wrong especially if it’s going to effect their Salvation!

Dear Christians we need to speak up in this culture!  People are no longer blushing under their sin any more!  Their is a spiritual war going on in our country and some of us are asleep!

Someone said to me, “It seems like you do not tolerate any sin?”  WHAT!!???  Of coarse I don’t!  God is a Holy and Righteous God and we can not be in Heaven with him if we do not humble ourselves before Him and ask for His FORGIVENESS!  We ALL need to REPENT of our sin.  We have spent too much time with wishy washy theology!  There are people in our culture who honestly think if you have a gay marriage, or smoke pot, or get an abortion, or commit lust in your heart, or hate someone, or lie, or slander, or curse, get drunk, etc….  what ever it is then it’s acceptable!  No it all separates us from God!  The problem though is not our sin, it’s that we have no more shame about it.  No guilt nor remorse.  God says this, “You are neither hot nor cold you are warm I will spit you out for I do not even know you.”  If you don’t care about your sin and say this is just me  the Bible says this, “People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart.”  Proverbs 21:2

So how do we deal with people who are Anti God?  Jesus said this, “But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.” Matthew 5:39.  (Please notice it does not promote not protecting yourself from someone trying to hurt you physically.  The Bible is very clear that we can protect ourselves if our lives are in danger.  This verse has to do more with insults.)

Jesus said this,

“Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.”  Matthew 7:6

So if you tell someone they are a sinner and what they are doing is wrong and that they need to be right with God in order to get to Heaven, they mock you and try to make you think your an idiot then do no waste your time with them.  They do not want to hear what you have to say.  This is where wisdom comes in handy.  There are also many proverbs about this.

Lastly, ” But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.”  Be sure dear Christian you do not call someone an idiot.  These are also Jesus’s words.  Jesus calls people other things like dogs, swine, hypocrites, blasphemer, fools, mockers, but he does not want us to insult someone by saying they are too stupid to understand.  Be careful your heart does not grow bitter to the unbelievers.  

Unity and Peace the New Deception

Image result for Freedom of religion

 

In our culture world unity and peace have become the focus of many nations.  There is not problem with the idea in and of it self, but for a Christian this evil deception has become the focus and the mission of some of our churches. We compromise what the Bible says in the name of unity.  The unity of the Bible has always been intended for believers not the unity of what the World is trying to achieve.

How are we compromising unity at all costs?  Here is a few examples; The Southern Baptist Convention is coming under fire for filing a legal document arguing for the construction of a mosque by an Islamic society in New Jersey.  While this may seem to be innocent at its face, the point that any Christian would help a mosque be built and to file a legal document for a Pagan Baal (Hell) worshiping goes against everything about what the Bible says is good.  This is a quote from Brent Walker, “It’s good when we can join hands with … folks we are sometimes on the other side of,” said Brent Walker, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.

The Bible says, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”  2 Corinthians 6:14  Even though we do have freedom of religion in this country and we have the right to worship how ever we please, Christians should never be promoting or helping any type of religion to develop their form of false religion.  I would dare say especially, such a religion that promotes murdering people in the name of their god Allah. It is something we should stay far away from!  What we should be doing with the Muslims is talking to them about as Jesus being the way the truth and the life, and no one gets to Heaven except through Him. And Jesus says this, “If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.” We talk to people about Jesus but we don’t force people to believe in Jesus.  

Another deception that is sweeping through our churches is the Emergent church.  What is the Emergent church?  The Emerging Church is a movement that claims to be Christian.  The term ‘Emerging Church’ is used to describe a broad, controversial movement that seeks to use culturally sensitive approaches to reach the postmodern, un-churched population with the Christian message.   Some Emerging Churches might use props such as candles, statues, and incense along with poems, open mics, and videos, etc.  EC services are sometimes extremely informal, while others are more formal.  (Matt Slick)

Emerging Church Characteristics

Following are some of the common traits I have discovered by reading through Emerging Church material.  But please understand that not all Emerging Churches adhere to all the points listed.

  1. An awareness of and attempt to reach those in the changing postmodern culture.
  2. An attempt to use technology, i.e., video, slide shows, internet.
  3. A broader approach to worship using candles, icons, images, sounds, smells, etc.
  4. An inclusive approach to various, sometimes contradictory belief systems.1
  5. An emphasis on experience and feelings over absolutes.
  6. Concentration on relationship-building over proclamation of the gospel.
  7. Shunning stale traditionalism in worship, church seating, music, etc.
  8. A de-emphasis on absolutes and doctrinal creeds
  9. A re-evaluation of the place of the Christian church in society.
  10. A re-examination of the Bible and its teachings.
  11. A re-evaluation of traditionally-held doctrines.
  12. A re-evaluation of the place of Christianity in the world (Matt Slick)

Here are some examples and starts:

The emerging church is a Christian movement of the late 20th and early 21st centuries that crosses a number of theological boundaries: participants are described as Protestant, post-Protestant, evangelical,[1] post-evangelical, liberal, post-liberal, conservative, post-conservative, anabaptist, reformed, charismatic, neocharismatic, and post-charismatic. Emerging churches can be found throughout the globe, predominantly in North America, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa. Some attend local independent churches or house churches[2][3][4] while others worship in traditional Christian denominations. Wikipedia

This is what the Apostle Paul says about this, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”  2 Timothy 4:3  These emergent churches purpose is the get people to come to a church building.  It is more about unity, peace, and love.  Just about everything is permissible to get people in their doors.  They seem to think popularity and filling up seats equals salvation.  The church is not for unbelievers although they are welcome to come and hear God’s word.  Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. The church is a place for believers to know and learn sound doctrine to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  The Emergent Church argument is that the traditional church alienates people and turns away people from the church.  The Word of God does turn people away because they just don’t want to live the Christian life.  Jesus said,  “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.You do not want to leave too, do you? Jesus asked the Twelve.  The Gospel is not an easy “pill to swallow.”  And Christianity does not live up to the world standards of fun, but I can promise it will bring you TRUE  Joy and Peace!  🙂   

This is an example of an Emergent Church

What would Jesus brew? Churches turn to serving beer to attract young flocks

Holy water: More and more churches across the country have taken to serving up pints  — or even holding theological discussions at the local pub.

What does Jesus say about Peace and Unity

1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

Romans 12:18 says “As far as it depends on you, if it is possible, live at peace with all men.” God says that there are some people you can’t get along with. Jesus frequently did things that the Pharisees disapproved of. They were hard core legalistic. He went ahead and did them anyway because it wasn’t an issue of being a stumbling block, but rather an issue of having people who were simply impossible to please.

The church has taken these passages and made them their mission for unbelievers.  I believe you can still disagree and live peacefully among all men.  This does not mean you compromise what the Bible says.  Christians are not supposed to be legalistic about food, performing religious tasks, lacking true joy, bondage to religious traditions, little or no assurance of salvation, or unloving and critical towards others.  Please do not confuse legalism with obedience to God’s word either.

Jesus said some things about peace.  This is peace and unity for the believer, the individual, not a nation.

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Matthew 10:34

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Luke 12:51

Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but division.

Revelation 6:4

Then another horse went forth. It was bright red, and its rider was granted permission to take peace from the earth and to make men slay one another. And he was given a great sword.

No, I am not forgetting that Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  But He never intended for the believer to pander or be disobedient to God’s word just for the sake of keeping the peace.  Think about all the immorality happening in our country from homosexuality to President Obama going against Israel.  Only if the Liberal left could make us think the way they want us to then there would be peace. I don’t know about you but my mind is captive to the Word of God not mere men.  As long as there is a Bible believing Christian around there will not be peace at least as the world should think it to be.

HE WILL RISE TO POWER THROUGH PEACE

The world will be looking for a leader and Satan will be quick to provide one.

The Antichrist will preach a message of peace. The prophet Daniel says that “he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue” (Daniel 11:21).

Revelation 13:2 compares him to a leopard because he will rise to power very quickly. The verse goes on to say that his feet are like those of a bear, because of his fierce power and strength and his mouth is like that of a lion, because of his domination over the world.

If there is world peace this will be your sign of the Antichrist and people who do not know Jesus will be intrigued by Satan and follow him because he speaks and talks with power that looks like it will bring “peace”,  and he will make promises of a unified and peaceful world but it will be to trick you.  The Christian believer knows that Jesus is the Prince of Peace who lives in their hearts and no matter what the world promises we know it is a lie.
