That is a question I am now contemplating. I just blew up. I reached my limit of hearing the word of God perverted beyond recognition.
What caused Christ’s righteous anger?
His Father’s temple had been turned into a den of thieves.
The temple was designed to worship God. It was made for prayer and study and meditation upon the Word of God. The Pharisees allowed money changers and merchants of sacrificial livestock into this holy place. Why? To steal from the pilgrims that traveled long distances to fulfill their obligation to God.
The thieves you see were the Pharisees themselves, for they took a large percentage of the profits as their “fees.” It was their hypocrisy, their false interpretation of the Bible that caused His righteous anger.
Hearing the polluted garbage of the false analysis of God’s Word I just couldn’t stand back and hear it anymore.
To have God and His Son so falsely represented. To hear the Jewish people and Christians alike be denigrated and defamed any further. I just couldn’t stand by and allow it in my presence any further.
Was I right to explode?
All I know is that to hear someone say they are “Christian” and live their live and say their insight into the Word of God was so completely and absolutely opposite even a poor interpretation of the Holy Bible. To have them say with absolute conviction and sincerity that their belief were the true translation of God Word; when even a seven year old would question what is read in the pages of the holy manuscript compared to the statements that left this person’s mouth.
I just don’t know for sure. The part of me that knows the Bible says no, yet at the exact same time it says.
All I hear in my head is:
Galatians 1:6 – I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. 8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.
I understand the anger. I understand where it is coming from. I am angry myself, but when making important decisions you must get the anger out.
James 1:19-20 – Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.
Right now people are voting their anger.
THIS MUST STOP!!
Right now, due to anger, people are supporting and voting for someone who is all show. He has no true values that are what can really be called “Christian” or for that matter “conservative” and has shown this with his lack of knowledge of the Bible when he said “Two Corinthians” not “2nd Corinthians.”
Now I just heard the other day an important fact from the exit polls of the South Carolina primary. Those that are true believers in God and follow the teachings of the Bible DID NOT vote for Trump. They voted for Cruz and Rubio. Why Rubio is something that I personally do not understand for I personally question his standing Biblically as well.
This is a wakeup call to those that call themselves “Christian” and voted for Trump. For the exit poll states that those that are NOT strong followers of the Bible DID vote for Trump. They by their own actions have declared they do not truly follow the Bible. Not only to the world, but to God.
Revelation 3:15-19 – “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 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. 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. I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.”
The Bible is against anger. The Bible supports a servant mentality. Now let me explain this. It doesn’t mean cower it means to think of others first.
Matthew 20:24-28 – When the ten other disciples heard what James and John had asked, they were indignant. But 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. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 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.”
Trump does not reflect the actions of a believer. In fact he encourages and truly promotes that which the Bible says we are not to do.
So those that are truly committed to God should not support this person.
If you do there is an issue with your beliefs that you must address and pray upon. For if you support someone that is opposite the Bible, well you’ll figure it out……….. I hope.
The Bible says that God would use even the evil of man to accomplish his plan. This not only goes for the actions of those like Hitler which helped enable the re-establishment of Israel, but it goes to other things.
I mean look at the title of the new Star Wars movie: “The force awakens.” Yet even now more and more are awakening to the truth about the government of this nation. There are many though that are allowing anger to cloud their judgment. It is this same type of anger that allowed Hitler to commit the horrible acts that he and his followers did.
Yes awaken, but do not awaken to anger, turn to what is righteous and true. But what is righteous and true in the world we live within today? The answer is thousands of years old and has seen the rise and fall of many governments and countries. Always at its core is that which is true. To place all others before yourself, especially if you wish to lead them.
It is this which we must awaken to. It is the teaching of Jesus Christ and all that is found within the Bible. We must honor all life, but we must be willing to defend what is right and righteous. For too long those with the power have been breaking the First Amendment of the Constitution. The government cannot form a religion. Yet the government is shoving more and more Islamic teachings into our schools to the point of making our children copy Muslim text and play Muslim songs during the presentations designed to honor the birth of Christ. Now I have no problem with Muslim practicing their religion, for that is the next part of the first amendment, but on the same lines that the does allow the government to remove Christian or Jewish symbols yet allow Islamic symbols to stay.
It is this which many are awakening too, but they are over reacting as they do. We cannot over react or we will be going the way of 1930s Germany, but a line must be drawn that cannot falter or fail.
Now, to be honest with you. I do not see this going well for Christianity. ISIS is here to stay, it is too late to remove them and any that support them in the United Stated either with full knowledge or with a mistaken understanding of what they are truly doing will most likely be held responsible for their actions by God All Mighty Himself.
There are events that need to happen, per the Bible and the way things are looking we are heading down that road. Those with eyes will see and understand at least partly to what I am referring. Understand also that God still has a purpose for the United States, if this were not so what has happened in the last eight years would not have caused the awakening to begin. God punishes those He loves to force them to change their ways, for He truly loves the people of this nation. He that spares the rod hates the child, he that chastises the child loves the child and wishes the child to grow in glory and love.
The United States is being spanked and those that are natural citizens need to realize this and turn their face to God and hear what He is trying to tell them. Soon though things are going to get much worse if we do not fully and correctly awaken. The next election will be how we show where we stand with God.
If we elect another Democrat, those that deny there is a God, then we are lost.
If we vote out of anger and elect Trump again we are lost.
If we support and vote for someone that is a servant of God then we may have a chance to redeem ourselves. Could this be Dr. Carson? Could it be Senator Cruz? Could it be Senator Paul?
These are the only three that deserve our attention and of these I personally distrust Cruz the most. Dr. Carson as shown true Christian values. While Dr. Paul as shown real fiscal knowledge and understanding. Maybe a Paul/Carson ticket?
Whatever happens this next election is extremely important to those that profess to be Christian. It is time to stand and be counted. It is time to make sure that those that have been in office for more than twelve year to be removed from power no matter the party.
Pray to God and awaken. Pray to God and vote.
