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to the Bible and as a follower of Jesus Christ it is my duty through peaceable and legal means to see that this law is rescinded and that ALL live is honored from the point of conception till natural death.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.

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.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: the shallow Christian


Yesterday, after the primary results were released about Arizona and Utah a blaring fact was made clear. Christianity is no longer a true faith, but a group of people living within a machination that they use as an excuse to feel they are redeemed, saved and able to be welcome in heaven.
I decided to make a small comment on a radio personalities Facebook page. It was clear and to the point. That point being that Mormons, a group of people that have been convinced by another book that their founder added to the Bible, in other words a cult, showed more knowledge of the true Bible then those that profess to be “Christian.”
Let’s just look at this last Tuesday’s primary results. Per Pew Research, 53% of the people of the state of Arizona say they are “highly religious” (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/29/how-religious-is-your-state/?state=alabama). Now Utah is said to have 64% that state this, but we must also note that Utah is the home of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and as was point out above have added to the Bible, which is seen as a cult by Christendom (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/29/how-religious-is-your-state/?state=utah).
Now as I have pointed out in a previous post. Donald Trump fit the description of a false teacher (https://dreamwalker1960.com/2016/03/07/a-true-reflection-of-2-peter-2/). Now as was shown to me yesterday there are those that think just because Mr. Trump does not profess to be a religious person he cannot be called a false teacher. Is his actions those of the world? Yes they are, then he is of the world. Does he profess to be knowledgeable and command your attention? Yes, then he is a teacher and since he does not follow the Bible he is a false one. A false teacher is a still false even though he is not of a religion and turns you away from the truth of the Bible.
Now that we have the ground work established. Here is the percentage of the vote for a Donald Trump the false prophet and for Ted Cruz the man who is human, but is a better reflection of Jesus Christ than Mr. Trump ever will be.
47.1% or 249,916 people voted for Mr. Trump in Arizona.
24.9% or 132,147 people voted for Mr. Cruz.
Now this is from a state as shown above is said to be 53% “highly religious.”
Now let’s look at Utah with a Mormon population that is 58% of the state per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Utah.
Donald Trump got 14.0% or 24,864 people
Ted Cruz received 69.2% or 122,567 people
This is how the polls should look when all those that call themselves “Christian” vote for the person that is the closest reflection of Jesus Christ.
NOTE: Since Mr. Kasich has shown he supports Homosexual marriage (see first Republican debate) he is on par with Mr. Trump and not Mr. Cruz.
This vote is both a blessing and curse. For God has given the citizens of the nation the ability to show their belief in God and their faith in Him by choosing the leaders of this nation. When we do not vote our belief in God or His Son the Lord Jesus Christ but for our personal wants, desires and lusts; than the voter is voting for sin and the world and are showing the curse of the vote, not its blessing. So they are showing that they are shallow Christians, or as the Bible says that which they are, which is hypocrites.

Through willful ignorance a nation shall judge itself


It is nearly twenty years since Jesus Christ emerged from the tomb alive to walk amongst us once again for a short time and to give His final instructions to those disciples that were still alive in the forty day window.
Now Christ’s last known hand chosen disciple, Paul, once Christ greatest enemy and now one of His greatest servants in the New Testament was in Athens. His teachings had caused a great stirring throughout the people of this city. He was taken to the council of the city and here he spoke to them of the teachings and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Within these words came a reaffirmation of a truth that many in today’s world wish to forget, deny or in many cases have really never even thought about, and here is that teaching:
Acts 17:22 – So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, 23 for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about.
24 “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, 25 and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. 26 From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.
27 “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. 28 For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ 29 And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.
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.”
Some laughed when He mentioned the resurrection of Jesus, but others did not and became saved, and so the great tree of Christianity grew that day and has continued to this day.
In March of 1944 the Second World War still continued, but within Washington D.C. someone listened to God and stood before the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church. His sermon this late winter day was like all true messages; it is black and white and never grey (the full transcript will be included at this end of this article). His opening statement set the context of his message. A message that today few want to hear let alone listen to: “My text is taken from the first book of Kings, Chapter eighteen and Verse twenty-one. If the Lord be God, then follow Him. But if Baal, then follow him.”
Dr. Peter Marshall saw within this nation, caught up within a war against evil, the same corruption that had plagued Israel when Elijah was that nation’s prophet. At the end of his sermon the pastor of the church in this nation’s capital made a very clear pronouncement:
IF THE LORD BE GOD, THEN FOLLOW HIM!

BUT IF BAAL, FOLLOW HIM . . . AND GO TO HELL!

Now also in this message was the following statement:
“Now, I suggest to you that America needs a prophet today – a prophet that will set before the nation the essential choices. In the words of that great poet and essayist, J.D. Holland, ‘God give us men – men whom the lust of office does not kill – men whom the spoils of office cannot buy – men who have honor – men who will not lie – men who can stand before a demagogue and damn his treacherous flatteries without winking – tall men, sun-ground who live above the fog in public duty and in private thinking.’”
But why the need for a prophet? Dr. Marshall explains in the part of his sermon:
“Millions of people in America live in moral fogs. They move in a sort of spiritual twilight. Modified morality; modified dishonesty is the practice of millions more. Surely the time has come for us to be honest about it. If we have thrown away our national heritage. If we no longer believe that this nation was founded under God. If contrary to what is stamped upon our coins, our trust is not in God, but in Baal, LET US SAY SO!
Let us at least not be hypocrites. Yes, like the ancient Hebrew nation, America needs a prophet like an Elijah – a prophet who will have the ear of America and will say to her now:”
These are the word that led to the two sentences above in all capital letters. The thing is most never listened, and many more never knew these words were ever spoken. Living in blissful ignorance and their fates they were making for themselves.
Five years after this sermon though. The same year this man passed on to be with our Lord (January 26, 1949), a prophet did come into recognition upon September twenty-fifth upon the opposite side of the country in Los Angles. His name is Billy Graham, even though I feel he will not acknowledge this title.
Millions over the years listened. Yet, still, as was pointed out by Dr. Marshall many continued to live in a moral fog moving in a spiritual twilight lost within the grey, the lukewarm. In all honesty it can be stated that the moral decay within became self-evident to those with eyes just after the First World War. A time that came to be known as the roaring twenties. This resulted in the wrath of God that came to be known as the Great Depression.
It took another World War to awaken many and so this nation partly got back on the right track, but as we can see from Peter Marshall we did not full accept God. So a Prophet was sent to us and due to this prophet many listened and this nation started down the right path, for a while.
Most though did not listen to the prophet, and so God once again sent His wrath upon this nation which came to full awareness in an act that all knew, but few realized the full meaning of on September 9, 2011. This was the wakeup call sent by God, but still the nation did not listen. So more trials hit all within this nation.
Now it is here we must come to an important understanding form the talk that Paul gave to the council at Athens in the winter of 51-52 AD. That being this:
Acts 17:26 – From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.
God, through His servant William Penn, granted this one nation, which is different than any other throughout history. Gave this nation, the second nation created for those that call God Lord; not for His bride, which is Israel, but for His Son’s bride, which are the Christians. Gave this nation, the one thing He gave no other nation. The true ability for each adult within this nation to pick it leaders. This did not happen at first and was not fully realized until August sixth in 1965.
It is a gift that most do not fully understand and many do not participate in due to this lack of knowledge and so as is all that come from the heart of humanity in their ignorance becomes corrupt and evil.
In 2008 God unleashed His judgement upon this nation to see if we would awaken from our materialist ways, but as a whole this nation still continued in its depravity. So His judgement was released upon the United States and we began to go into decline faster than what occurred during the great depression.
In 2012 God gave the people of this nation the ability to show their repentance, but this required that they show true humility and surrender the power of this nation over to someone that followed the teachings of a known false prophet. They had forgotten the words of Daniel though, that being:
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.”
And so in pride and arrogance, as well as ignorance they left this nation in the power of the one that God has sent as His wrath upon it. So the wrath continued and became even more severe. So acute in fact that those that the nation itself was given to came under attack to the point that it was obvious that God was displeased with the bride of Christ.
In fact, so upset is God that the wrath left the boarders of this nation and spread throughout the entire world. It grew to the point that martyrdom and genocide of those that called Jesus Savior became more evident than it had ever been in centuries.
To a degree many have awaken to the truth, yet again God sends us a test to see if our awakening is real or is laced with ignorance.
As of the writing of this article the answer is it is still filled with ignorance. For we are again in the cycle given unto us by God to pick the top leader of this nation. It is again time to see if this Christian nation, yes CHRISTIAN NATION, has truly awaken to the fact that we that live in this nation are here by God’s design, not fate, but by and for His glory and His glory alone.
So our vote is to reflect the glory, and for the honor of God. It is to be given not for our materialistic gain, but to show that we are His children, His servants.
What many do not realize is that these temporal riches they seek after are nothing. For they are only here at this moment and tomorrow they will be gone. So why seek them at all? The answer is they should not, but they do.
They listen to someone that fully fits the description of a false prophet from 2 Peter 2, but they forget or do not know what else this chapter states, which is:
2 Peter 2:18 – 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.”
“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.”
Our task as servants of God is not to follow after the lusts promised unto us by false prophets, or after the lies of those that love and prefer sin over their Creator.
Our task is to look and support that person that best reflects the Son of God. Will that person be perfect? No, but they will acknowledge and say in knowledge that God is first. They will know that materialism is a path to destruction. If any promise you things of the world then they love the world, and any that love the world hate God.
The time for willful ignorance is gone. It is time to live in full awareness of the facts that were stated in that sermon in 1949. It is time to remember those words spoken by Peter Marshall and the true black and white choices that are open to us and to accept our fate that we not only chose in our hearts but in the ballot box as well. It is:
IF THE LORD BE GOD, THEN FOLLOW HIM!

BUT IF BAAL, FOLLOW HIM . . . AND GO TO HELL!

“Trial By Fire” Sermon “America Needs A Prophet”
By Dr. Peter Marshall (1902- 1949)
Pastor of New York Avenue Presbyterian Church
Washington, D.C.
My text is taken from the first book of Kings, Chapter eighteen and Verse twenty-one. If the Lord be God, then follow Him. But if Baal, then follow him.
The leaders of ancient Israel (including the king) had come together to make a great decision. It was a national emergency. Elijah the prophet had summoned them to meet on Mt. Carmel to settle no less a question than whom they should worship.
William Penn has said that men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants. Here then was a Hebrew prophet facing the very same issue and making his people face it with him. They all knew the history of their nation. How God had led their fathers out of bondage into a new land as pioneers. How His Holy Law had been written into the nation’s Constitution. How The Ten Commandments had become a Bill of Rights and a Declaration of Dependence. But something in the nation’s life had begun to fade. Moral decay had set in. They had begun to love things more than principles. They had become materialists. And materialism had a god – a god of the flesh. And his name was Baal.
Now Elijah saw the danger. He saw what would happen to the nation when its moral fiber was weakened. So he summoned the 450 prophets of Baal, the king and the nation’s leaders. It HAD to be either/or. They had to get on one side or the other.
You remember the dramatic test – the trial by fire. How on the parched, sun-baked slopes of Carmel, Elijah announced his proposed test. Let sacrifices be laid upon the altar. Let him be god who would send down fire and consume the offerings. And let Baal and his priests have the first inning.
Then began the weird, pagan performance. With Elijah jibing at them with pointed sarcasm, “Cry louder why don’t you? Cry louder! He is a god you’re crying to isn’t he? Perhaps he’s gone for a walk. Perchance he’s asleep. Cry louder! Wake him up!”
All day long he taunted at them, until hoarse with their shouting, wearied with their paganistic dancing, they were exhausted. Yet no voice spoke. No voice answered.
Then Elijah went over to an abandoned Jehovah altar, set upon it a sacrifice, and offered his prayer to Jehovah – not ranting or foaming or shouting. And the answer came in fire, which consumed the offering. Then the people looking on cried as they fell on their faces, “The Lord! He is God! The LORD! HE is God!”
Now, I suggest to you that America needs a prophet today – a prophet that will set before the nation the essential choices. In the words of that great poet and essayist, J.D. Holland, God give us men – men whom the lust of office does not kill – men whom the spoils of office cannot buy – men who have honor – men who will not lie – men who can stand before a demagogue and damn his treacherous flatteries without winking – tall men, sun-ground who live above the fog in public duty and in private thinking.
Millions of people in America live in moral fogs. They move in a sort of spiritual twilight. Modified morality; modified dishonesty is the practice of millions more. Surely the time has come for us to be honest about it. If we have thrown away our national heritage. If we no longer believe that this nation was founded under God. If contrary to what is stamped upon our coins, our trust is not in God, but in Baal, LET US SAY SO!
Let us at least not be hypocrites. Yes, like the ancient Hebrew nation, America needs a prophet like an Elijah – a prophet who will have the ear of America and will say to her now:

IF THE LORD BE GOD, THEN FOLLOW HIM!

BUT IF BAAL, FOLLOW HIM . . . AND GO TO HELL!

The vote, an instant snapshot of where you stand in your belief of God


“But that doesn’t tell anyone if they belief in God.” Will be the first thing people will say or think when they see this title, which is why it is entitled this way.
The vote is a snapshot into your state of mind. It shows how you were raised, it shows how you were educated. It shows if you have studied the person you are voting for or if you are just reacting to what is popular, what others are basically telling you is the way to vote. If this is not a look into your mind, then what is? The answer is there is nothing else that fits this description. So yes it can be said it is a look into your belief of God.
This election has shined a light on the beliefs of the voters more than it has ever before. It has shown that this nation is in dire need of returning to God and the teachings of the Bible.
The news pundits have made it very clear the importance of this very fact. They say that the “evangelicals” otherwise known as “Christians” are spit in their vote. But if you listen carefully that is actually not true, but at the same time it is true. They go on to say that those that practice their faith have not voted for Donald Trump, which is has it should be since he per the Bible fits the description of a false teacher (2 Peter 2). However, these votes have been split between mainly Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Those that are active in their faith are in reality the true Christians, because they are active in their belief of God and strive to follow the teachings within the Bible. Anyone can say they are “Christian,” but it is their actions, the way they think, what they say and how they vote that shows if they are truly a believer.
This is why the vote is an instant snapshot of where you stand in your belief of God.
Someone that does truly belief there is a God, and that this life we now live is merely a stepping stone to that which is greater and eternal will strive to reflect the Son of God and His teachings.
These teachings include calling a sin a sin, for He died upon a cross for these sins. We are told that once we accept Him as our Savior to continue to live in sin is an insult unto Jesus Himself, and those that do this are in actuality not a child of God, but of His adversary, Satan (1 John 3).
So then how a person votes shows how their mind is attuned to the teachings of the Bible, and how informed they are about who they are voting for and how willing they are to listen not only to God, but upon what they see with their eyes and hear with their ears.
Then when it comes time to vote, they will be voting as God desires, but if they do not listen as was witnessed in 2012, God’s wrath will ultimately come into play. As has happened in the last eight years with the destruction of this nation’s image throughout the world, amongst other things.
Those that truly know God, knows that He must be first in ALL that we do. Since the vote is included in “all” then we must think. Is this someone that reflects God? If the answer is no, then that person is someone we should not vote for. If they curse, are vulgar, support sin and declare that sin is more important than God, they are not “Christian,” and so should not have our support for how they act reflects upon us and in reflection upon us reflects upon God.

A Facebook reply


The other day someone posted a picture of aborted children’s bodies along with this statement:
“Someone asked me why can’t God be using Obama and Clinton. My response: Is God in the midst of people who support and promote this? This man voted many times that it was okay to leave in soiled utility closets to die, the ones who survived being dismembered, burned, and liquefied- thus denying them their 14th Amendment Constitutional rights. Hillary Clinton toots the same horn as Obama. By the way; this is the #1 killer of black Americans. So how much do black lives really matter? So IF God is using them; what is He using them for?”

This is my reply:
I have the answer to your questions, but first I must place a verse of the Bible in for your understanding:
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.
“even to the lowliest of people.”
That being made clear we must also understand how God responds when His children are disobedient:
Proverbs 13:24 – Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. Those who love their children care enough to discipline them.
God loves this nation, as He loves His chosen people, Israel. Did God not punish Israel many time as they turned their back upon Him? The answer is yes. One time leading Daniel into the court of Nebuchadnezzar, where he was able to not only prophesies of Israel’s return to Jerusalem, but of the coming of Jesus Christ.
This nation, the United States of America, has turned its back upon God, and as a result God has allowed this nation to be degraded, embraced and humiliated by the current president.
In 2012, those that called themselves “Christian” had the power and the means to tell God that they were sorry, but due to pride and arrogance, they could not “lower” themselves to vote for a Mormon. Over 53 million “Christians” stayed home or wrote in the name of someone that would hand the power back into the hands of someone that has snubbed his nose at Christendom since before he was even elected the first time.
The blood of every aborted child and ever Christian in the Middle East is now upon every single one of these people, not just the man in the White House, but they themselves. This is also true for every single person that calls themselves “Christian” and continues to support and vote for any person in the Democratic Party. A party that openly denies there is a God and proudly supports the sins of abortion and homosexuality.
This is why this nation is being punished by God.
Right now we are at a turning point once again. That is the greatness of this nation at this time. The people have the power, given to us by God to pick our President. Unfortunately, they have not supported the one that would have been best for this nation, and so we are left to pick the lesser of the evils once again.
Per the Bible, Donald Trump is a false teacher (2 Peter 2) and so any that calls themselves “Christian” should not be voting for this man. Yet they do. Why? Because they are the “lukewarm.” (Revelation 3:14-22)
God is giving them one last chance to redeem themselves before Him. If they fail this time. Well let’s just say this nation will most likely no longer exists. An example of God’s justice once again manifest.

Tomorrow’s primary vote…. PLEASE READ


In a previous post I showed straight from the Bible how Trump fully fits the description of a false teacher (A true reflection of 2 Peter 2). Now I am fully aware that many will vote for him. I wish they would not for the reason I just stated. I have also shown that no one that calls themselves “Christian” should ever support anyone from the Democratic Party (Stop falling for the propaganda [Biblical grounds for not voting Democrat]).
Will people listen to me? That in itself is laughable. Not because people do not read these post, but people do not truly believe in most cases what I am saying. Why? Because not enough people know the Bible.
The Bible clearly states that we are to place God first in EVERYTHING that we do. That includes voting. So if we place our Creator first, by using the teachings of the Bible we are to pick the person that is the best reflection of Jesus Christ. Someone that is servant leader.
At this time due to the number of delegates already won by the candidates. There is only two Republican candidates at this time. Since we as Christians should not vote for Trump or the Democrats that leaves only one person we should vote for.
Following what was just stated. Tomorrow do not vote for Trump, Kasich or Rubio, and never vote for any person for any position of the Democratic Party.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: My take away from Super Tuesday


First I must make it clear that I believe that no leader that is in power is there without it being allowed by God.
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.
We have experienced eight years of the “lowliest of people.” Now though we see the uniqueness that God has bestowed upon the people of the United States of America for as Abraham Lincoln said we are a: “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” This means that the “lowliest of people” can include every person that has the ability to pick the leader of this nation.
This was reflected in the 2012 presidential race when millions stayed home and handed the second four year of this nation over to the person that has disgraced and torn down and apart this nation. Any sins committed by the current president that added to the death toll not only in this nation but the world is now upon their hands as well.
We are again in a position of having to vote for the lesser of two evils. However we have not quite finished with picking which of the evils we are going to be forced to vote for. It is a vote that we must make. It is not something we can pass on for we are the people. This is the uniqueness of the United States of America.
It is clear that people do not wish Washington D.C. to continue to work as it has, and all I can say is it is about time. This election is not like any other in the history of this nation though. Within this election hangs the balance of not just the moral foundation principles this nation was founded upon, but its continued belief that it is a nation “under God.”
The primaries has exposed the true flaw within this nation at this time, for the most part, even in those that profess to being “evangelical” it is corrupt, sin filled and lost. No longer following the teachings within the Bible. As a result this nation is in decline, and why? Because God is punishing this nation.
To a degree it has worked. Those that profess to be conservative, which the core meaning of this term means to follow the teachings within the Bible, are coming out to vote. They are doing the complete opposite of what occurred in 2012. However about half of them are not following the precepts set forth within the Bible of what they should seek within their leaders. Now it is important at this point to say that we are all human and we cannot find the perfect leader. That will not happen until He sets foot upon the Mount of Olives once gain.
So we must seek after someone that comes as close as possible to a servant leader. This is not the way many are thinking though. Instead they are supporting a vulgar, arrogant as well as other traits that are totally opposite that which someone calling themselves “Christian” should even be proud to say they support. It is nearly as bad as someone who would call themselves “Christian” and support any Democratic candidate since that party openly supports and even encourage multiple sins within the Bible.
Still they support this person. Why? Many say and the same time professing to be “evangelical” that he reflects them. Not that he reflects Christ, but them. That is not placing God first. That is placing themselves first. If people are not willing to humble themselves and say: “because he reflects God.” Then in reality they are being selfish, self-serving, the Bible has a name for this. It is called sin.
We had people this year that were a better refection of God, but people ignored them. Why? Because these people were not angry enough to stand for them. They did not promise great rewards in the manner these people have come to expect to get their rewards; Here and now. Again this is not Biblical. For Jesus made it clear our reward is not in this live but the next and we are to look for someone that is humble and speaks truthfully.
Now as I stated, those men are no longer in the race. We are now down to who is the lesser of the evils. We have the man that is totally oppose the values of God and is all about getting the rewards due us here and now. We have the turncoat who came in to the senate under the promise to reform that body but in last night’s election came in a strong second in Virginia because Washington D.C. voted for him. And then we have a man that has faltered in parts of his campaign with falsehoods that may or may not have been to his knowledge. With him though it appears he has kept his word for Washington D.C. dislikes him.
So who is it to be? The person who is the opposite of Jesus Christ completely. The turncoat who sold out to greed, or the person that may have approved lies?
Per the Bible it can’t be the first two, then it has to be the last.

The “Evangelical” vote


This is this great word that the media is using to define those that profess to be “Christian.”
Now when you listen carefully to those in the media they divide this group even further. They say: “those that are strong followers of their belief” and then “those that do not fully practice their belief.”
This is the important division in this statement. Because in actuality they are giving you a false image of the truth.
I have listened to or watched every primary to date as of Super Tuesday and every single time they give this division of those they are calling “evangelical and/or born again.” Every single time the will say that those that DO NOT fully practice this “evangelical belief” have overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump.
But those that DO practice their “Christian” values are split between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
What this speaks to is a complete misunderstanding of not only the media, but of the American public at large.
The term “evangelical” is defined per the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as: of, relating to, or being in agreement with the Christian gospel especially as it is presented in the four Gospels.
Now to be in agreement with the gospel or more accurately the Bible you say that your Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ and that you strive to reflect the teachings found within the Bible.
To endeavor to be a reflection of Jesus Christ you would say that you are practicing your faith. So those that they are calling “moderate and/or not following their beliefs” are per the definition given above are in reality what can be defined by the Bible itself as the “lukewarm.”
The “lukewarm” per the Bible (Revelation 3:14-22) makes it clear that in the eyes of Jesus Christ they are worse than an atheist and are spit out of the Body of Christ by Jesus Christ Himself. Simply they are not “evangelical.” They should not even be counted as that term.
What doesn’t surprise me personally is that they are showing the world what God already knows. They are not Christians. Why?
Look who they are supporting. Someone who is proud, arrogant, clearly states he has never asked forgiveness. He has been caught in lies. He is called a con-artist. He reflects everything that those that are true “Christians” would never even consider. They are voting from anger, again something that is against the teachings of the Bible.
So this misnomer that they are a reflection of the “evangelical” electorate is another attack on Christianity. An attack designed to belittle and dismiss not only Christianity, but what true Christians follow: The Bible and in so doing discount and diminish God Himself.
So per the media themselves those that practice their faith are the true “evangelical” and deserve to be called this. They though are showing their humanity as well. For there is enough evidence that shows Marco Rubio is not worthy of their vote. The biggest of these is the mere fact that those in Washington D.C. are supporting him. This says he has sold out to the greed that has corrupted this nation’s government. Does this mean Ted Cruz is worthy of their vote? There are factors that say no as well. This is why the vote is split.
What is clear is in reality we are getting a real picture of Christian faith in the United States of America. We are seeing in each primary in real time just how far this nation has fallen away from Jesus Christ. We are seeing that many who may honestly believe they are “Christian” are in fact in even worse shape spiritually than those that totally deny the existences of God.
We are seeing it is due to their hypercritical life style that they are why Christianity is failing in this once Godly nation. Now you need to understand what the word “hypocrite” means. It means to act, to play a role. This is what those that do not practice their beliefs truly are per the very definition of the word, because they do not “practice their beliefs.” Why? Because by saying they are Christian and not following the Bible wholeheartedly they are in essence playing out a role, acting as if they are faithful to Jesus. However by not following the teachings within the Bible they are just performing upon the stage of life. Then once they leave the limelight they return to their sins which are more important to them than God.
They are today’s equivalents to the Pharisees, which were the core conspirators in the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. If this one sentence does not send a wakeup call to these people, nothing ever will. This is truly a sad statement, but it is a statement that must be said. I will leave the readers here to truly think on what they just read.
