There is a need for clarification in the “Lying Ted” label, Biblically.


This is a label that has not gone away. It is a label that was spoken of by the presidential nominee for the Republican Party, Donald Trump.
It has to do with Dr. Carson heading home for a change of clothes. A staffer in Ted Cruz’s election committee released a false narrative on why Dr. Carson was doing this. This action was not known nor supported by Senator Cruz. When the senator became aware he addressed it quickly and fired the staffer and then publicly apologized to Dr. Carson. Dr. Carson did not accept this apology, which is not how the Bible instructs us to act, but we are all human and flawed.
Donald Trump took advantage of this situation and so labeled the senator as “Lying Ted,” even though there was no factual foundation for this label, thus it was a lie.
Millions of voters jumped upon this bandwagon and to this day this the label has stuck.
Now that the facts of reality have been established let’s look at this from the Biblical point of view.
Let’s start with the point that Mr. Trump assigned a label to someone in a false narrative.
When someone calls someone a liar yet the very act of doing so is a lie, is per Matthew 7 hypocrisy.
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. 6 “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.”
So per the Bible the Republican Party nominee for the Presidency is a self-proclaimed hypocrite. There is nothing we can do to change this now so we are stuck with this choice, which bring us to Daniel 4:17.
“For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”
But back to the main purpose of this article.
So we have per the Bible established three facts.
1) Mr. Trump lied.
2) Mr. Trump has made himself a hypocrite
3) Mr. Trump has publicly stated he has never felt the need to repent his sins unto God or His Son Jesus Christ.
So what is to happen to liars per the Bible?
Revelation 21:8 “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
John 8:44 – For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Proverbs 13:5 – The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace.
Exodus 23:1 – You must not pass along false rumors. You must not cooperate with evil people by lying on the witness stand.
1 Timothy 1:8 – We know that the law is good when used correctly. 9 For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders. 10 The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching 11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.
So that lays the foundation of what God thinks of liars, now let’s move on to hypocrisy.
James 1:26 – If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. 27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
Romans 2:1 -You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things. 2 And we know that God, in his justice, will punish anyone who does such things. 3 Since you judge others for doing these things, why do you think you can avoid God’s judgment when you do the same things? 4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
1 John 2: 7 Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before. 8 Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining. 9 If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is still living in darkness. 10 Anyone who loves a fellow believer[b] is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.
Think that covers that, so let’s move on to repentance.
1 John 1:8 – If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.
Luke 13:1 – About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple. 2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered? 3 Not at all! And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God. 4 And what about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them? Were they the worst sinners in Jerusalem? 5 No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.”
Acts 17:30 “God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him. 31 For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.”
So here is how the Bible see the actions of Donald Trump at the time he called Ted Cruz “Lying Ted.” As of now he has made no public attempt to apologize for his actions. There are those that say he has asked Christ to be his Savior yet we must remember the Bible also says this:
James 2: 14 – What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? 15 Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, 16 and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? 17 So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. 18 Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” 19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless? 21 Don’t you remember that our ancestor Abraham was shown to be right with God by his actions when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. 23 And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. “He was even called the friend of God. 24 So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone. 25 Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road. 26 Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.
But what are works?
First and foremost to place God at the center of your life and in every single aspect of it.
Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
This does not just apply for each and every person that professes to be “Christian,” but also for nations.
When doing this you place all the teaching of the Bible at the core of your everyday life. Yet millions that profess to be “Christian” do not do this.
It is rumored that he is new to Christianity, yet this does not excuse his past behavior. In fact it is required as was read above in repentance that he amend his past behavior whenever possible.
Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.’ 22 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. 23 “So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God. 25 “When you are on the way to court with your adversary, settle your differences quickly. Otherwise, your accuser may hand you over to the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, and you will be thrown into prison. 26 And if that happens, you surely won’t be free again until you have paid the last penny.
So with this foundation we see that Donald Trump is in the wrong and his action speak more of the world than of Christianity, yet millions of those that profess to be “Christian” flock to this man and say that Ted Cruz as wronged him. They insist that he is still “Lying Ted.” So they have born false witness against their neighbor.
So let’s look at how Donald Trump does behave. He is arrogant, he looks upon others and calls them evil names and parades himself to be better than any other person.
2 Timothy 3:1 – You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
Gee that describes Donald Trump to a tee. So Christians are to stay away from him, yet millions gather about him and hang upon every word. Yet since we are to stay away from him does this not mean he is of the world? So what does the Bible say about those that call themselves to be the bride of Christ yet they seek out the world?
James 4:4 – You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. 5 Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him. 6 And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. 9 Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
You have made of yourselves adulterers to Christ.
Yet due to this adultery we have only two real choices in this election, since the adulterers rejects those that were a better reflection of Christ. Both that are left are the lowliest, yet we must choose one. Is it the one that denies the very existence of God and thinks of herself as above the law and so above God? (Titus 3:1; Daniel 4:17) Or is it the one that knows there is a God but shows no real repentance.
Unfortunately we must choose one, but we must choose even though it is onerous and goes fully against our faith as true followers of Jesus Christ.
It must be Donald Trump, but unless he shows that he has changed truly for the glory of God we must replace him in the next election cycle with someone that is a better reflection of the Son of God.

2 Timothy 4:1-5

A child’s mistakes


I was reading the other day where someone talked to Dobson about Trump’s “recent” acceptance of Christ as his Savior.
One sentence just got a hold of me and I have not been able to shake it.
“He is a babe in his faith.” I maybe paraphrasing this, but this was the point Dobson was making about Trump not appearing to act like a Christian.
Why it bothers me is this. The Bible makes it clear that when you accept Christ as your Savior your entire “self” changes. Is it a 100% change overnight? In most cases no it is not. I myself have been growing in my faith for thirty-one years, but I did make every effort to reflect my faith in Christ as best I could. Was I right in some of my perceptions of how someone should act and behave once saved? The answer is the simplest of all. No.
Why?
Because I was taking my faith and how it should appear by what I heard from humanity and not from the Bible. This a failing that most that call themselves “Christian” are now living themselves. They are living a life that is not Biblical and so in not truly “Christian.” That is why we now live in the era of the lukewarm. That is why those with eyes see and those with ears hear what is true and see the errors thousands if not millions that call themselves “Christian” are suffering from.
In the piece I read Dobson made no statement on how he is helping Trump to grow in his supposed new found faith. In fact from the way it was described Dobson had heard the confession to follow Christ as a second-hand statement. He himself never heard Trump ever confess his salvation to him in person.
Once in the courts this would not even be allowed. This was when the law meant something in this nation.
So why didn’t Dobson stand up to the plate and offer to take Trump under his wing and offer to guide him in learning how to grow in his faith? He could have, but the article did not mention it. This, however, is the problem with many in today’s clergy. They ask people to accept Christ, but it is extremely rare to see them guide them through these newborn steps toward an understanding of their new found belief that Christ is their Savior. Yet this is exactly what the Bible states MUST be done and it is to be done by church leaders, for if it does not these newborn babes in Christ falter and fall away truly becoming the lukewarm. A class of faith that is worse than the denial that there even is a God.
This is the very reason it took me nearly most of this last thirty-one years to reach a place that I feel I am on a solid foundation of the scripture and understanding in context the true message of Jesus Christ my Savior. This is why we now live in a time where there are more lukewarm than true and solid people that when they call themselves “Christian” it would be a reality, not a word spoken that has no meaning even to those that profess they are. Unaware of their own blindness to the true concepts of the teachings of Christ, which state clearly that you must place all others before yourself as an example.
Most that call themselves parents strive for the most part to guide and scold their children when required so that they grow into an adult to be proud of. That is the desire of Jesus Christ for those that ask Him into their hearts. Yet I see no true growth in Trump at this time. I still see the lies and the misguided statements that remind me more of a “Democrat” than of a “Republican.”
Now there are those asking why I had to mention the Democratic Party. That is simple. They removed during a previous convention the very mention of God from their platform. They have officially rejected that there is a God. Is it possible that one day the Republican Party may do the same? This could happen.
Why do I think this?
Because people no longer read the Bible. A majority take the words of other humans and accept that they are telling them the truth. Why? Because they have a title or a degree that says you must listen to their words for they have studied and learned the Bible. Since they have spent so much time studying how can they be wrong. Yet they are wrong. This is shown in the mere fact that there are so many factions within the “Church” itself. If we all knew the Bible we there would be no Baptist, no Catholics, no Presbyterians, there would be just Christians of one mind and one body.
That is why the Bible says we must learn the word of God ourselves and never to take the word of others at face value, but to confirm that what they say is true and accurate. This is how a child in their faith can grow into a spiritual adulthood. They need a mentor, they need to be instructed in the correct ways to learn the word of God and then when they make errors, which we all do and will continue to do till we are called into heaven, they will be corrected. Either in a calm and gentle manner or if need be scolded when they do something that is totally opposite the true teaching of the Bible which many do. An example of this would be getting a speeding ticket. For when you speed you are in violation of Titus 3:1. Yet people will say: “I was going with the flow of traffic.” So they were going along with other humans that are breaking the word of God as well and this is their justification for disobeying God? Yea I don’t see that holding up well when they stand before God one day.
This is why they need to read the King James Bible for it is the closest to the original message that was finished being penned 1900 years ago. Then we should strive to learn the original meaning of the words in Hebrew and Greek with the aid of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, which can be found online by the way. This is how someone grows in their faith.
Yet it is not just knowledge of the word of God, but it is applying it to everyday life. It has been said that the best study of the Bible is Satan himself. This is extremely true. You can know the word of God from cover to cover but if you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ than all your knowledge means nothing on that day you stand before God and His son.
Ponder and think upon these facts.

The sales pitch is on.


I am reluctantly listening, when able to the RNC convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
So far most of those that have made it to the airwaves, and also the on air hosts have, for the most part, joined in the sale pitch to push and to glamorize and glorify the presumptive RNC nominee.
Now I have regrettably been forced, mainly due to the actions of the other party’s nominee and those in the current government, to already vote for this man. Again I hate that I have been forced into this predicament, due to the weak minds and gullibility, due to improper education of most of the voting majority of this nation.
The biggest failure has been with the so-called “church” itself. Those that profess to be “Christian” yet have no true understanding of true belief and of God, Jesus and the Bible. These were those that voted for this man.
They have seen a showman and have swallowed his used car salesman pitch hook line and sinker. And I do truly mean “sinker.” A weight that will pull them even further into turmoil.
I hear the salespersons on the radio and on the TV. They sing his praises as if they are sing a psalm to and about God.
He is a man. He is a human. He is not Jesus the Son of God who took human form.
He will let you down. He will disappoint you.
Has this not been proven a reality with Barak Obama? Yes it has.
I still remember hearing my co-workers in 2008 singing that man’s praises. Yet today you will not hear one even admit they voted for the man.
Christians are not to vote as looking to humanity for an answer. They Israelites did this. They begged and pleaded from God for a king. God held off as long as He could. He gave the Israelites the judges. One of these judges was Samson. A man who became vain and self-centered. A man who did not realize the errors of his ways till God cast him down to the level of an ox and allowed his blinding. It was not until he had no sight that he saw the truth.
How did he redeem himself? Destroyed a temple and the pagans within it as well as himself.
When the nation finally united under one king. That king, committed adultery and murder. Yet he too saw the truth, but at great cost to himself. He lost his son, he had his blessing from God removed and was not allowed to build a temple to God.
Humanity needs to stop seeking salvation from other humans.
Humanity will ALWAYS fail you. Humanity will always fall for corruption and destruction.
There is only one way to salvation and that is through asking Jesus Christ to be your Savior. Then once that is done, to fully read and seek to truly understand for entire Bible. Not a verse here or there, which can be misunderstood when stated out of context.
You must come to learn the Bible in context and with full understanding for only then can you learn the true way to full and complete salvation.
Don’t listen to the sales pitch, look to the quality of the product you are “buying.” If the quality is flawed and breaks then it is not worthy of your investment.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: Why I will now vote for Trump explained


A short time after Ted Cruz left the primary field of people running for the Republican Parties choice for President, I announced that I would not be voting for either the Democratic or the Republican nominees. I stated clearly that neither represented me and neither represented the Word of God. My stance here has not changed. Neither do nor do I ever see either of them doing so, which as I see it is a sign of the fall of this nation and an impending judgment if not a continued judgment from God against this nation for turning their backs as a nation away from God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
That being said I will now explain why I will even though very reluctantly vote for Trump.
To start we must begin with Titus 3:1:
“Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.”
Which clearly states that those that call themselves “Christian” must follow the laws dictated by humans given dominion over a people as long as those laws do not conflict with the Bible. An example of a conflict is seen in the legalization of abortion. This is counter to the Bible and as a follower of Jesus Christ it is my duty through peaceable and legal means to see that this law is rescinded and that ALL live is honored from the point of conception till natural death.
Now why are we to honor the laws given my humans?
This is answered in Daniel 4:17:
“For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”
This being said by the Bible, especially the very last part does not mean us, we as a people, are to just let those that are the “lowliest” come to power when we have a chance to choose who is to be our leaders.
This is the uniqueness of this nation.
Take for example the recent change in the Prime Ministers if Great Britain. The choice of Mrs. May didn’t come from the people, but from those within Parliament already.
That is not how this nation works. This nation has the special ability to choose the person that is to represent us to the world. Please note I did not state lead this nation, but represent us to the world, for that was the original intent of the Presidency. The Governors of each state were to run the matter of each individual state and to have some, but limited help from the federal government like for example a common currency and a national Army as well as a Navy for defense of all states within the Union.
We the people of this United States were gifted the power to appoint the person to be a symbol of our nation. As I stated before neither in the major parties nor any others in any other party fit this description.
What pushed me over the edge to go ahead and vote for Trump was the actions of the government in the last twenty days.
First you had the former president Mr. Clinton meeting in a jet privately with the Attorney General while an ongoing investigation of his wife was on going. This is a clear violation of the law. Then when so much evidence was made clear to the world and in this evidence even spoke clearly that people were being told by Mrs. Clinton herself on how to break the law. It came out a few days later after this private meeting that there would be no charges against her and those under her. This goes clearly and blatantly against the laws of this nation and show a total disregard of not only the laws but for every single legal citizen of this nation.
That being said and no power or nation can exist without God’s choice is an action of arrogance against the Creator of this planet and this universe. It is saying to God that they spit upon His glory and care only for their own desire to be gods themselves. Now who was it that did that before? Oh yeah, Satan. This was also done by Hitler, Napoleon, and Stalin, to name a few.
Yes, Trump has never ask forgiveness for his personal sins, but as of yet he has not, in such a public way, degraded or insulted God as Hilary Clinton has, and so since they have so publicly spit upon my God I can not support her and must vote for the person that has the best chance of winning against her. That being Donald Trump, may God have mercy on our souls.

The “me” culture.. the destroyer of nations


There are several cultures at work within the world, as there are several cultures at work within the church. Now I say “church” as a whole of all that say they are believes in God. In fact, in Revelation there are seven churches a.k.a. cultures listed.

The most dominate culture for all the cultures within the world and the church is the one that says, “Everything revolves around ‘me”.”

Yes, the “me” culture is everywhere. It reminds me of the age of Galileo Galilei, in which the culture of the time was also self-centered to the point of stating that the earth was the center of the universe and everything revolved about it.

It is also in this time that written material was available, but mainly to those of great wealth. My point in mentioning this is what I have been witnessing more and more in today’s schools in the United States. That being to teach the basics and to do that poorly and not teach knowledge. The “histories” being taught today are not complete or changed to no longer teach of freedom, but on reliance upon the state; simply socialism, which is a step below communism. Communism, which has been shown to be corrupt, self-serving to those in power and ultimately destructive to the very nation that practices it.

I have seen the news broadcast (when news was worth watching) of long lines for the ordinary citizens of the former U.S.S.R. just to get the basic foods to survive till the next week at which time they would have to stand in line once again. While those in powers or of import to the nation lived in luxury. This what is the citizens of the United States are now be led to do, by those that are in power at this time. Daily we hear of corrupt in various departments of the government. All by those that have been in office for their entire live. That is not how this nation was designed to work. Those that go to the government were meant to stay a few years then leave. That is what it needs to be returned to.

The “me” culture is not what is taught within the Bible. Self-sacrifice is what is taught. Jesus completed the ultimate self-sacrifice, upon the cross. Another example is that of Job. A man who was rich and was reduced to a sick beggar in the streets homeless. He kept his faith in God and all was restored to him. Job always placed God first. Yes, he lamented about his suffering, but once he placed God first things improved.

Right now, the U.S. is suffering and many are lamenting, but recently there are some signs that people are starting to place God first again. Once most do this and return God to the core of this nation you will see this nation rebound.

We need to strive to remove those in powers that are so blinded by their “me” mentality that they do not see that they are doing anything wrong. When in reality they are. They feel they have broken no laws. What is worse the corruption has spread so far that is affecting those that in the past exposed this corruption to the world. Now they sing hand in hand that the world is better to have corruption rule the land rather than God rule the land.

This nation was founded upon religious freedom. People moved here to get away from a government that was the church. Now you have those that say there is too much God in the government and are forcing the true God out only to replace Him with the god of “me”

Which, to me is the ultimate form of corruption. As the statement says, “ultimate power corrupts ultimately.”

Why doesn’t God answer me?


This is the question many have asked, even myself. That was before I truly understood the teachings of my Savior Jesus Christ. The Son of God who placed Himself upon the cross for my sins, for your sins, for everyone’s sins.
The true light of understanding came to me this year during the primary season of the presidential election. Due to the corruption and betrayal of not only those in Washington, but of the man that currently sets in the oval office, the United States populous become even angrier then they were before.
They were angry, especially those that were sold a bill of goods by the Democratic Party in the 2008 election which enabled the person now in the white house to be there. On every turn he has accomplished his personal goal of tearing apart this nation and degrading it to the rest of the world. Why? Because God has had enough. His blessing given to our forefathers in the Revolutionary War and their fore runners that ran from the corruption of the Catholic Church and of the Church of England, has been removed.
For most they never even saw this, and most still do not. They are the blind following the blind to their eternal deaths and they don’t even realize it or even belief it. They laugh at these word. They call them foolish and stop reading, yet it is the truth.
Time and again God gave His chosen the chance to stay truly and completely loyal to Him, but every time they failed Him. God stopped answering their prayers. Why? Because He loved them and still loves them to this day.
God made a covenant with Israel. Jesus made a covenant with those that accepted Him as their Savior. These people became known as “Christians.” God promised the tribes of Israel He would give them a homeland. There is more than enough evidence to support that Jesus did the same for Christians and so the United States came into being.
The covenant was in effect as long as a majority of the populous of this nation acknowledged that it was a Christian nation. The man in the white house made it clear when he was elected that this nation was no longer a “Christian” nation, but a nation of pagans. That was the truth. That was confirmed in this last presidential primary.
Many that call themselves “Christian” don’t understand the true meaning of what is required for their “salvation.” This what Jesus taught:
Matthew 22:37 – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment.
This is what is required when you ask Jesus to be your Savior. He and His Father must be loved with ALL of our hearts, with ALL of our souls and with ALL of our minds. Yet this is not what is given. So why should God answer us if we don’t even follow this the FIRST and GREAEST of the commandments? We as a nation do not show Him the loyalty that is required, are we as a nation greater that the chosen people of God? No we are not.
Romans 1: 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Then this nation should accept that God is angry. They should accept that God is punishing this nation as a whole for its betrayal. Most in this nation stopped living a modest life and started seeking the glories and riches of the rewards we were promised from God. The problem with this is we were promised no rewards at all upon this earth. Yet millions rally behind an old man that promises free everything while the rest follow after an admitted adulterer and is obviously a conman because “he is the best hope for this nation.”
The best hope for this nation is only one being, GOD. You can only get to God by one person, His Son Jesus Christ. They were the only hope for this nation. I know without a doubt three candidates made it clear that they were “servant leaders.” Why is this significant? This is why:
Mark 10: 42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Here those that do not place God first in all they do with the heart, soul and mind will say:
“But that means to pick a church leader.”
Did you forget that “Christians” have a covenant with Jesus Christ? That was just restated above. Then those that call themselves “Christian” were required to pick a “Christian” leader, a “servant leader.” What to look for in them is stated clearly by Jesus Himself. The word “servant leader” were as I said above stated clearly by three men. All three were rejected by the majority. This is a clear statement of disobedience by the majority of the nation, yet they do not know it or accept it as fact. They live in a fantasy of their own creation. This is the same fantasy that the nation of Israel lived under till the City of Jerusalem was over run and destroyed. They lived in these fantasies till two temples were destroyed the populous was scatted throughout the world.
REPENT!!!!
Turn from your selfish lusts and desires for in reality this is how people actually read the words of Christ in Matthew. Most that call themselves “Christian” say the verse this way:
“I shall love myself with all my heart, and with all my soul, and with all my mind. This is the first and great commandment. For I must have what I want and nothing else or anyone is of importance to me.”
This was proven the moment Donald Trump their “savior” was chosen over those that called themselves and in most cases showed themselves to be “servant leaders,” which are the ones required by Jesus Christ Himself to be our leaders. For if they do not honor God with all their heart, all their soul and all their mind they can only server themselves and never God.
That is why God does not answer those that think they are “Christian” as they think they should be answered. For they have turned their backs upon God and His Son who died upon a cross for their sins.
Repent or accept that you are not Christian, but worshipers of your own lust and desires. No longer tarnish the name “Christian” with the truth that you are nothing but gentiles and pagans, worshippers of Satan.

God is to be the first in ALL that you do


This is the one thing that most either do not know or have chosen to ignore or forget. Why do I say this?
I say this because people have not realized what they have been doing this year when it comes to their faith and their belief. I will once again post a verse from the Bible that shows what I am referring to and explain.
Mark 10:42 – So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Now “Christians” state that they follow the Bible and in so doing follow Jesus Christ. Now you will note that this passage starts with “So Jesus….said.” Okay, so if people truly follow Jesus then they should in servitude listen intently to these words which are to follow. So what does Jesus say to do?
He starts by making a comparison he shows all what not to look for in a leader for Christians. Now if the United States of America is a “Christian” nation, which it originally was, than we should avoid any that fit the description of world leaders. So if someone that leads lords it over their people. If they flaunt their authority over their constituents then they should never be re-elected or elected in the first place. Yet that is how those in Washington and in particular all those that are now left running for the highest office of this nation are all doing. Then they should not be supported by those that say they are true followers of Jesus Christ. Because Jesus Himself makes it clear that this is not who Christians should support.
Jesus then goes on and states clearly who Christians should pick to be the leaders of a “Christian” nation. That being:
“Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else.”
There were at least three candidates that fit this build. The last was Ted Cruz. Yet millions that say they are “Christian” voted for the world and not the servant leaders. Yet millions rejected the teachings that came directly form Jesus Christ Himself. Those that call themselves “Christian” rejected with glee and joy the teachings of the person they call their “Savior,” and have embraced a human of the world that they now call their “savior.”
Woe be unto those that reject their eternal master. Woe unto to those that pick the things and the people of the world over their Heavenly Savior for they are adulterers to their Holy Groom.
James 4: 4 You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. 5 Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him. 6 And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. 9 Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 22:37 – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: The dilemma


I have been in a quandary since the withdrawal of what I consider the last candidate that showed Christian values when Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. Now I am aware of what has been said about him and I have made it clear in the past I had my own reservations about him. However, I know without a doubt that there is none running that can truly say they are “Christian” now. There will be those that will challenge this belief, but I base my belief solely from the Bible and what it teaches. Again there will be those that will challenge this, but I will not be swayed in my understanding of the word of God.
I see time and again those that state they are one with God, but their words and their actions tell a different story. What the Bible makes very clear is that God is to be the center point of our existence. Then I hear people say “where does the Bible say anything about voting?”
Didn’t I just say that GOD is to be the CENTER of ALL that we do? This includes every action that we make. Every choice that we make. Does not “all” include voting? Yes it does.
This is the mentality of those that think they are “Christian” these days. They are so blinded by the words of others and their own lack of knowledge of the Bible that they do not see their own blindness. Why do you think it is called “blindness?”
2 Corinthians 4:3 – If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. 4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
Revelation 3:17 – 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.
This is the state of many that have stated their choice for those that are now left running for president in the United States. In the Democratic Party, a party that openly supports sin, condones human sacrifice and denies the very existence of God. There is a liar and criminal running yet most in her party have supporter her. The rest support a person whose beliefs is to take form others and give to those that the government deems worthy of it. This is slavery and those that are taking and wishing to receive are the new masters in this slavery. But again they do not see it this way for they are blind to the truth because of their own selfish desires and lusts. For to them they are their own god and all must revolve around them. They do not see that they are sinning most grievously against God. This is understandable to them since most of them deny there is a God.
Then we have the person that many that think they are “Christian” have voted for proclaiming him the savior of this once proud nation. They do not see that they have placed this human above God and above the true Savior Jesus Christ.
As “Christians” we are to place God at the center of ALL. Every action especially actions that affect how we are to be lead within a nation MUST be centered upon the teaching and values of those taught by Jesus Christ. This includes those additional teachings that were given to us by the apostles, those personally chosen by Christ Himself to spread the word of salvation and humble service to God though Jesus Christ.
Now what many did not see due to their blindness is that this last eight years has been a judgment by God against the United States of America. For this nation has sinned grievously against Him.
This election was God’s test to see if we have learned from His judgment. The answer was made very clear as one by one those that professed to be a servant of God were rejected by the primary voters in state after state.
Then we came down to Ted Cruz. A human, a flawed man. A man who did not commit adultery. A man who did not lie. A man that is accused of adultery by someone that openly admits to truly committing adultery and states plainly that he will continue to live in this sin. A man that didn’t lie is accused by someone that cannot say the same thing on the same topic and so in fact is continually lying.
Yet this sinner is who the people have chosen. This man that is a true definition of the word “heathen.”
It is clear now that it is more judgment that is going to come raining down upon this once proud nation. A more severe judgment. Yet still those that are blind attack those that are warning them that this is not going to end well for all.
Yet the blind are smug and feign righteous indignation. Making themselves out to be better and smarter than those that have read the Bible and see the signs of Biblical history once again repeating itself.
As I see this, hear this and read this, I can come to only one conclusion. I must vote for God. I must vote for Jesus.
Now comes the comment from the reader: “But you just said there are none that are Christian running.”
That is what I said. That means I must vote for Jesus. I will not vote for any in the presidential campaign. I will go to vote. I will vote for those that are running for congress, senate, state offices and local offices, but I cannot in good conscience vote for any that openly oppose God and His Son my Savior.
Does this mean I will be handing this nation over to the Democratic Party? Most likely, but it is not due to my actions that this will happen. It is due to every single person that calls themselves “Christian” and forgot to place God at the core of their lives. It will be the fault of every person that says they are “Christian” and voted for someone that is more a reflection of Satan than of Christ.
True Christians would only seek out someone that is a servant leader as is required by the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself.
Mark 10:42 – So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
The majority has chosen judgment over salvation. God has ask for our repentance and it has been resoundingly rejected. Now we are to enter into an even more harsh judgement. Does that require more of our freedoms to be taken from us? Yes it does. Does this mean we are to suffer financially? Yes it does.
For God is to be the center. Not ourselves, not our possessions, not humanity, but GOD. If this means we must suffer to awaken to the truth then let it happen. Then let those that say they are “Christian” really come to a realization of who it is they are really worshiping, for it is not God nor His Son.

I know this is a re-hash but it is that important: Why Christians should never vote for Trump


I start straight from the Bible:

2 Peter 2:1 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Trump has made it clear He is unrepentant. He has made it clear that he has committed adultery many times and would never stop committing adultery. Luke 16:19; Exodus 20:14; Proverbs 6:32
1 John 3: 7 Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. 8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.
Isaiah 29:13 – And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote
2 Peter 2:2 – And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
The other day John Boehner called Ted Cruz Satan and then turned his support to Trump.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
NLT – In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money
Trump tax plan – All other Americans will get a simpler tax code with four brackets – 0%, 10%, 20% and 25%. If you make less than $25000 … zero taxes ($0 to $25000 = 0; $25001 to $50000 = 10%; $50001 to 150000 = 20%; 150001 and up 25% but major corporation loop holes still in place). So since tax loop holes in place approximately 19% of the American public would carry the tax burden for the nation… those making between $50001 to 150000.
Cruz tax plan – Under the Simple Flat Tax, the current seven rates of personal income tax will collapse into a single low rate of 10 percent. For a family of four, the first $36,000 will be tax-free. The Child Tax Credit will remain in place, and the Simple Flat Tax Plan expands and modernizes the Earned Income Tax Credit with greater anti-fraud and pro-marriage reforms. As a result, the Simple Flat Tax will ensure that low- and middle-income Americans have greater opportunities (all major corporation loop holes removed) tax burden even across the board.

4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
NLT – Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done. They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight. They are a disgrace and a stain among you. They delight in deception even as they eat with you in your fellowship meals.
Trump delights and is proud of his lies and makes no attempt to hide them.
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
They are empty vessels filled with nothing but themselves and their lies. And what is the fate of those that call themselves “Christian” that continue to follow them?
NLT 18 – They brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. With an appeal to twisted sexual desires, they lure back into sin those who have barely escaped from a lifestyle of deception. 19 They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you. 20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
They are following the road to damnation and no longer salvation and as a result they shall suffer more for they once knew the salvation of Jesus Christ.
DO NOT SUPPORT TRUMP FOR YOUR OWN SALVATIONS SAKE!!

Understanding the word “conservative”


It is defined as this from the “Cambridge Dictionaries Online”-
“tending to emphasize the importance of preserving traditional cultural and religious values, and to oppose change, esp. sudden change”
Traditional – existing in or as part of a tradition; long-established. synonyms: long-established, customary, time-honored, established, classic, accustomed, standard, regular, normal, conventional, usual, orthodox, habitual, set, fixed, routine, ritual;
Religious values – Religious values are ethical principles founded in religious traditions, texts and beliefs. In contrast to personal values, religious-based values are based on scriptures and a religion’s established norms.
This is the core definition of what a “conservative” is and should be. However in two recent occasions I heard things that do not follow this definition.
The first was during a symposium on marriage during the 2016 CPAC conference. One of the people there supported homosexual marriage and yet called himself conservative.
The second was from a broadcast from Breitbart News on SiriusXM, in which the host of the weekday morning broadcast stated that religion had no place in conservativism.
This is counter to the definition of “preserving traditional cultural and religious values” so in my eyes this person at CPAC and host of Breitbart Mr. Stephen K. Bannon should not call themselves “conservative” but “progressives.”
Progressivism is a broad philosophy based on the Idea of Progress, which asserts that advancement in science, technology, economic development, and social organization are vital to improve the human condition.
Simply translated a progressive believes that humanity does it all and there is no need to include God into the equation and those that adhere to the belief in a God are out of touch with reality. This is totally counter to what a conservative is, but this is the mind set of those in today’s society since God has been removed from schools for fifty years now.
They have fallen for these misguided beliefs and feel that the existence of God is a misnomer due to all the corruption and ugliness within society. What they do not realize is that this corruption, even though present in the past has grown like a cancer throughout society today due to the mere fact that GOD WAS REMOVED.
Mark 7:20 – And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
When God is removed from the picture and they are not shown that God must be the center of their lives and they must accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. The result is corruption and ugliness for that is all that humankind is capable of causing. Look to the French Revolution, which led to Napoleon; look at Socialism which turned into Communism which led to millions dying in Siberian Gulags; look at Nazism which led to the Holocaust. These are examples of where God was removed from the equation.
So to be a true conservative you must maintain that there is a God and that the teachings within the Bible are to be followed.
That being said at this time many that call themselves “conservative” are following a candidate for president that totally opposes all the true “conservative values.” That person is Donald Trump. In fact if you listen to him, other than the fact that he has no true plans and how to accomplish ANY of what he states he will do, he actually talks like a “progressive.” This means he is opposed to God, this was proven when he stated his favorite verse in the Bible is “an eye for an eye,” the last verse any true Christian would ever support. Yet millions that say they are “Christian” support him. What does this say about these people? The answer to that is not one they wish to hear and it is not good.
