Perilous times are at hand that will affect true Christians. The Biblical Prophets foretold these things would come to pass. However, the last several generations of Christians in America seemed to have ignored the signs. This article will present before the reader, that Christians will indeed suffer persecution at the hand of evil. This article will also show the United States Supreme Court is supporting this evil calling it a constitutional right.
The issues of homosexuality, sodomy, bestiality, no self-control, the military and Christianity, the attack upon the religious businesses and possibly a few others will be included.
The problem could just well be that the Church has done too little for stemming the tide of immorality in America today. The possible outlook could be a fault’s security in their comfort-zone. Has the Church in America become just like the Church of Sardis proclaimed in the book of Revelation? The Church cannot continue to ignore the facts, and if a revival is to ensue, it must start with us now.
The United States Constitution was to guarantee each their religious freedom as stated in the first amendment.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
America has classified religious freedom today as a hindrance to progress. If religious liberty is a barrier to progress, then why not free speech, or freedom of the press, these two freedoms are in the very same sentence. One cannot remove any item from this sentence for if one does it destroys the freedom we so enjoy in America today.
One can look back in time see almost all the significant discoveries were by men and women who believed in the God of Creation. Now Christianity gets a slap in the face because of one’s belief in a high moral standard that one should live.
The United States Constitution is, but a document no longer held in high esteem as the absolute rule of law. Christians must face this new challenge with a fortitude that comes from the God of creation.
Christianity has no more sway over the politicians it once did. The politician’s goal is to receive votes only and will do whatever to get them to remain in office. The fact that politicians have opted for power, their religious affiliation is but “smoke and mirrors.” All this will lead the Christian Church into a time of persecution.
This persecution may just be a gift from God to weed out the individuals that have no root when the blistering Sun descends upon them. When one sees Fellowships with thousands of people, one must stop and remember what the scripture teaches.
In Matthew 22:14, it says,
14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
One almost never sees Christian Fellowships this large anywhere else in the world except in the United States. It is the author’s belief that is because the Church in America has been unchallenged for decades.
In Matthew 7:13-14, it says,
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 “For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
One should stop to think about the “many” that enter through the other gate? More than the few chosen have taken this other road to destruction. Please stop and think about this for a few minutes. After one has thought about this, it should bring one to their knees in humility with nothing but gratitude and thanks on their lips for what the God of Creation has done.
What the results of being a Christian no matter, the location on earth comes from Scripture.
In 2 Timothy 3:12, it says,
12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
If there is no persecution, we have weak teaching, and in the end, Satan will do all the laughing.
The depraved homosexual community has manipulated the government into believing they are the persecuted ones. These homosexuals are using the discrimination card to perpetuate their immoral acts as a Constitutional right. It is this discrimination that now brings about the beginnings of persecution in the Christian family. Their discrimination is a ploy by the homosexual community for social equality based exclusively on immorality.
Civil Rights & The Supreme Court:
Women wanted their civil rights to vote; they called their movement, “Women’s suffrage,” it came in 1920, far too long after the establishment of this nation. The American-African did not get their full civil rights until 1965. These issues are Civil Rights and granted at the signing of our Constitution.
Now the homosexual comes along, and their desire is civil rights to perform an immoral act that was at one time against the laws of the land. Homosexuality is the doorway to Hell and their father, Satan, and they are going through it happily believing that somehow that the God of Creation will let them into glory.
In the Declaration of Independence, it says,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
It is the “Pursuit of Happiness” the homosexual wants to be guaranteed by law. Their happiness is the sexual perversion of the young as they state in their Homosexual Manifesto. For the moral minority in America, one must only pursue happiness without a government mandate to guarantee us happiness.
In the Declaration of Independence, it says,
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
The United States Supreme Court has become a destructive power regarding the moral fiber of a once great nation. “Safety and Happiness” is being secured only for the immoral minority in America by the Supreme Court. Real Americans must demand the Supreme Court to stop making laws when that responsibility falls to our elected Congress. Americans must demand that Congress do their job that is to make our laws, not the Court.
There is no place in the Constitution or Declaration of Independence where homosexuality is a right guaranteed to them by law.
Violation of Human Rights:
What will the Supreme Court allow in the future? Will they permit the beating of a wife by her husband for not being a good cook? Will the Supreme Court allow child molestation? Will the Supreme Court allow rape; will they say it was the woman’s fault she got violated? How about murder for it seems if one has power and money, they walk free, look at Benghazi.
Will our Supreme Court, in the end, allow sex with minor children, it seems to be heading in that direction? One day, some pervert will come along making one of these issues a civil right. What would happen if the Supreme Court became entirely liberal? These perverts will claim their unfulfilled sexual desires are obstructing their mental and physical health. Therefore, claiming it is their Civil and Constitutional right to have sex with a minor because they only like children.
These are honest questions that moral people should ask for we can see that the Supreme Court is not protecting the morals of our women or children by what they have allowed thus far.
The immoral act of sodomy was at one time against the law. Now the sodomite also known as the homosexual has a civil right to commit this disgusting act granted to them by the immoral Supreme Court.
In Genesis 13:13, it says,
13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked exceedingly, and sinners against the LORD.
The homosexual does not believe the people of Sodom were homosexuals. The gay community claims that Sodom had some other sexual problem. God destroyed Sodom and other cities by fire out of heaven because of its wickedness.
In Genesis 18:20, 32, it says,
20 And the LORD said, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. 32 Then he said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the ten.”
Just because it does not state emphatically the word homosexual. The very nature of how the men in that city acted toward Lot’s words show what was in their hearts, a homosexual act on God’s servants.
In Genesis 19:4-9, it says,
4 Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; 5 and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.” 6 But Lot went out to them at the doorway, and shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly. 8 “Now behold, I have two daughters who have not had relations with man; please let me bring them out to you, and do to them whatever you like; only do nothing to these men, inasmuch as they have come under the shelter of my roof.” 9 But they said, “Stand aside.” Furthermore, they said, “This one came in as an alien, and already he is acting like a judge; now we will treat you worse than them.” So they pressed hard against Lot and came near to break the door.
The men of Sodom were acting on their lust for the two men who came within the protection of Lot. These men were a mob not, the “Welcome Wagon.” Sodom was the most perverse city known to humanity, and it needed destruction. Lot was willing, even to give his daughters to these men because Lot understood what was in their heart.
The United States is on a slippery slope and could be a target of God’s wrath for its sexual immorality. Unless there is a revival, this destruction will come, and even the memory of a once great nation will be gone.
Bestiality ran rampant through the known world and thus, why would the Scripture deal so harshly with the guilty and the animal? Since homosexuality is a perversion of morality, the author believes that bestiality is also on the list of perverted sins the homosexual was performing.
In Exodus 22:19, it says,
19 “Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death.
In Leviticus 20:15-16, it says,
15 ‘If there is a man who lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death; you shall also kill the animal. 16 ‘If there is a woman who approaches any animal to mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood-guiltiness is upon them.
These verses speak of the depravity of the homosexual way of life and what the punishment they received. The laws throughout the land today will allow this to run as an epidemic and unchecked by the liberal lawmakers who practice the same thing. The homosexual lifestyle is of their father, Satan, and he promotes this practice and the degrading bestiality way of life.
With the ease of access to the Internet, an individual could surf these vile, and immoral sites that depict homosexuality and bestiality as good. This decadence is also easy, even for our children to access. We cannot trust the Government to help us, so we must secure all the computers one has at home from this filth.
The morality of America has taken a dive into the pit of desolation. The government, removing Christ out of the American way of life is the results we see today.
By comparing the sexual revolution in the 1960s and the homosexual lifestyle is that we only see one thing consistent, immorality.
The liberal politicians ultimately sanctioned this immoral way of life. These politicians are not merely looking for votes; they believe this is a way of life that should be normal, and accepted so this depravity is now forced on all Americans.
The homosexuals with their desires to commit sodomy has become their right according to the Supreme Court ruling, and bestiality will soon follow. Therefore, discriminating against them in any way is to violate the law. What happened to morality in America today, for the violation of God’s moral law has no value to them?
It is the United States Supreme Court that has allowed sodomy to pervade the land as a civil, and moral right. God does not accept this way of life, but He will destroy it in His timetable. Thus, with a vote of only five unelected individuals, they took the Christian rights of morality from us with the stroke of the pen.
Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Anthony Kennedy.
These five justices were in the majority for legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.
These are the individuals who believe in their hearts that immorality against God is justified in their eyes, and they have the nerve to call themselves justices. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy who wrote for the majority vote for the court will stand before God and answer as to why he did this vile thing.
In Romans 1:28-32, it says,
28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
Today we call ourselves a civil society and no longer destroy evil. Maybe if we kept this practice, the world would be a better place to live.
Christians were the scapegoat for Nero’s problems. Nero murdered his mother around A.D. 59, so the killing of Christians was easy for him to execute. Nero used them as torches to light the way.
Look carefully, and one will see family members dying, for the cause of Christ.
Nero placed the blame on the Christian community for the problems of Rome. No one truly knows if Nero started the fire or not. What Nero did to Christians was on par with what Hitler did to the Jews during World War II. That was to blame someone for the problems throughout one’s country then destroy the problem using this as one’s justification.
The homosexuals are doing the same thing Nero and Hitler did, blame someone else then destroy them. The homosexuals are using the Christians and their moral values as their scapegoat in the hindrance of their civil rights. Christians must understand that no government will protect them. Christians will be persecuted and locked in jail or killed for their beliefs. It is a fallacy to put one’s trust in the United States Constitution supposing that it will protect us and our beliefs in God.
In Romans 1:22-28, it says,
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 Moreover, just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.
The Homosexual has “No Self-Control,” thinks they are smarter than God. Their attempt to change what is in Scripture to justify their actions and make them right. What is evident is that Satan their father is hard at work corrupting everything they touch. Their father, Satan entirely controls the gay and lesbian person. For these individuals, somewhere in their lives turned total control over to Satan. This turning over control will be revealed in the day of judgment to them as to time and place they yielded their lives to Satan.
Therefore, brothers and sisters stay on one’s guard for Scripture teaches us that Satan is very sneaky.
In 1 Peter 5:8, it says,
8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
The Military is Hostile Toward Christianity:
General George Washington’s prayed for the protection of the United States of America.
– George Washington –
April 30th, 1789
“Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large. And finally, that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen”
According to NewsMax, the Military has become increasingly ‘Hostile’ to Christian groups. This hostility will only increase, so stay strong brothers and sisters. Here is a website that is just a small example of the Military’s hatred for the Christian religion.
It is a sad thing when a man or a woman in the military is being targeted for harassment because they believe in God. There is an old saying among the Infantry Soldier, and this is, “There are no atheists in foxholes.” Today it seems the military wants only atheists in the Service.
Christian Businesses Under Attack:
Christian businesses are under attack by the homosexual community because these companies will not serve them. The question is, why should a business compromise their Christian values when everyone knows that these homosexuals had targeted these establishments and knew what the results would be?
There many Non-Christian Businesses that they can work with, but they only desire to cause problems. This homosexual attack is exclusive, to destroy Christian Businesses because of their moral beliefs.
Where does it state in the United States Constitution that any business has to cater to anyone? One can almost say with a significant amount of accuracy that the politicians that have been in power will bend to virtually any particular interest group to get reelected. These two websites below shows what the attitude is toward the Christian Business.
Christianity at the Crossroads:
Christianity in America is at a crossroad, and one must make the same resolution as Joshua did as to whom will one serve. Joshua chose the Lord; I chose the Lord; will one choose the Lord or conform to the status quo prevalent in America.
In Joshua 24:15, it says,
15 If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD. Choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods, which your fathers served, which were beyond the River. Or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you, are living; however, as for my house, and me, we will serve the LORD.
In Romans 12:2, it says,
2 Moreover, do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. So, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
The homosexual community with the approval of the United States government is forcing the Church to conform to their ideal of liberty with its immoral values. Jesus paid the price with His life for the ransom for our life. Christians must stay strong, for the Lord will reward each of us in that great day of judgment.
14 In Matthew 22:14, it says,
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Remember what Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount concerning persecution.
In Matthew 5:10-12, it says,
10 Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for, in the same way, they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
We must speak boldly against the immoral homosexual agenda and the United States government for this evil and vile lifestyle they support. By speaking out who knows, we could have a new awakening in America and bring back morality as its cornerstone. Trust the Holy Spirit, for He will give us the ability to speak the right words at the precise time needed.
Evil is flourishing in America only because the Church has closed their eyes and runs to their comfort-zone. The reason the Church today seems to have the inability to work together with other fellowship groups is because of their failure to overlook the minor differences.
The Church family is overly worried about such things as will the building mortgage get paid or who can cut the grass this week before Sunday. Just think if there were no buildings, there would be no mortgage payment or grass to cut. Maybe the Church should return to the meeting of God’s people, in the homes as it did in the first century.
Could the size of the sanctuary be the size of the pastor’s ego? Could immorality be flourishing, to some extent, linked to how much we spend on the clothes one wears to the service trying to outdo someone in the Fellowship?
Is the Church worried about the number of individuals that were baptized or are they concerned about the souls that have not heard the Gospel message? Has the Church’s comfort-zone become so famous that it has forgotten who they are, and who their King is?
Message to Sardis:
In Revelation 3:1-6, it says,
1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 ‘Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. 3 ‘So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore, if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. 4 ‘But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 ‘He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments, and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
Could this just be the character of the Church in America today; this may be harsh, but sometimes we all need a good kick in the pants to wake us up.
The Church of Jesus Christ is in trouble today and needs to return to trusting in the God of creation. We must confess our sin of complacency and humble one’s self before God.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, it says,
14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Once healed now comes the preparation for battle. Every time one departs from the sanctuary of one’s homes one steps into the battlefield. Christians are not alone in their fight, for the power of heaven is on the side of righteousness. The battle is for one’s soul so put on the Armor of God to fight.
In Ephesians 6:13-17, it says,
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm, therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH. And HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. And having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE. In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. In addition, take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
In 1 Corinthians 10:15, it says,
15 I speak as to wise men; you judge what I say.
