Where I am By Billy Graham – My commentary 4


Chapter six showed me an insight into the people of this nation and Samson the judge. A discernment that is amazing in its refection of the people of this nation. I am in awe of the just how much the two do compare. At the same time I am saddened by what this means for this nation as a whole. Here is the quote given by Mr. Graham:
“Our present society isn’t much different. Too many people today feel that the old moral standards are useless and out of date. They believe they ought to be free to make up their own minds about what is right and wrong, thus doing what is right in their own eyes.
“Worldly thinking is, ‘if you expect to get ahead in life, you’ll need to adapt to worldly living and learn to fit in.’ that’s where compromise slips in—that little voice that urges you to lighten up, to give in, whispering that it’s okay to go along in insignificant acts. But this is the voice of temptation that comes from the devil.”
This leads me right to Revelation chapter three:
14 “Write this letter to the angel of the church in Laodicea. This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginning[e] of God’s new creation:
15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. 19 I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.
20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.
22 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”
Compromise is the trend that is popular today especially in those that say they are “Christian.” They unwittingly become the “lukewarm” the “grey” the hypocrite. Jesus makes it clear they fate of those that willing being the lukewarm.
“16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
Jesus the glorified Christ spit will spit them from His mouth which means from His body. Casting them to men to then be gathered and burned. But there is only one place that burns and that is the pit of fire.
I also like this paragraph from Mr. Graham’s book:
“Samson was strong physically but weak in every other way. He broke the first commandment, to but God first in everything. Instead, he put himself first and ignored God’s rule. Samson broke the second and fifth commandments and worshiped the shrine of lust by taking a Philistine wife against his parents’ wishes. He broke the sixth commandment and murdered. He broke the ninth and tenth commandments because he lied and coveted (Judges 13-16). “
The United States was strong once but the people become weak in every other way. Most have broken the first commandment and worship themselves over God. He made his Philistine wife to be an idol of lust and defied his parents by marrying her. Americans lust after beauty and worship those that they consider beautiful. Millions of dollars are spent daily to help people to look beautiful to themselves and others. Most ignoring the advice of their elders that try to teach them that looks are not everything. He killed those that had tricked him to gain answer to a riddle he had posed thus he committing murder out of greed and lust for worldly possessions.
Many in the United States covet what others have and seek it for themselves and go to whatever extreme is necessary to acquire it even through lying. Billy Graham continues:
“We look at Samson’s life and can see ourselves in the mirror. We make life-changing choices for good or bad. When we choose the bad, it is because the seed of sin is within us. It can only be rooted out by salvation in Jesus Christ.”
Luke 12:48 – But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.
“This was Samson’s profile; he had been given everything life had to offer. But instead of treasuring it and being responsible with it, he decided to ‘live it up.’ Samson was bored, and boredom often leads to discouragement or, as in the case of young Samson, mischief. He chased after whatever pleased him and was headed for a catastrophic fall. When he let his guard down, he was bound up by the enemy.”
Well the people of this nation have everything life can offer and they get bored with it and turn to mischief. They chase after whatever pleases them and as a result this entire nation is head to catastrophe, for they have let their guard down that the enemy, Satan, is about to bind them and throw them into devastation.
The warnings are being shown to all, but few are listening and even viewer are attempting to take action. However this is something that the few can fix. It will take a majority to address this issue.
What is the starting place to correct this issue? What is it that a majority can make an effort to show they wish to change the course of this nation away from collapse?
It is the election that is occurring at this very moment. Not only for president but for the senate and congress. You cannot vote for someone that acts like Samson and that would be Trump. You cannot vote for the Philistines which is the Democratic Party. You must vote for the only person left that at least makes an effort to show his belief in God and that is Ted Cruz, since you have removed those that would have been better suited due to greed and selfish desire. You must also remove any one from office that has been in Washington for more than 12 years.
Turn to God and pray to Him asking for His help and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. For eternal salvation will be all that can save us from the troubles this world is soon to get into.
