‘MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’ SERIES – COMMENTARY ONE – MARRIAGE

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Juanita Holloway-Walters

This is it; the one that caused writer’s block. The subject matter has done much to divide America, and all the way down to the family and close, warm, personal, friend level in society. A question: Why should I turn my back on my centuries old Christian beliefs of marriage, to pretend to embrace someone else’s beliefs – JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT ME TO THINK SOMETHING I AM NOT HARD WIRED TO THINK? It is a ridiculous proposition. I am praying the emotional blackmail of deceitful Political Correctness has run its course, and failed in America. We may be surprised at how fast certain aspects of the Politically Correct model of America may change over-night, if American Christians turn away from Secular Christianity fraught with agnostic, and even pagan beliefs.

It still confounds me as to how such a small segment of our population was hijacked by the enemy within, using the truly evil practices of Political Correctness to insert counter-culture ideals into the very core of our American Culture. The “latest estimate shows that 3.8% of our population actually identify as LGBT,” as per Gallup. (1) We can scarcely turn on the big or little screens without having the gay lifestyle crammed down our throats. The fabric of our Christian nation is weak to have allowed this content to be in the realm of 100% saturation of our children through school, through television, and through music.

SKREEEEECCCHHHHHHH! STOP! NEWS FLASH! THE LIONS SHARE OF BLAME FOR OUR POLITICALLY CORRECT BROKEN AMERICA IS NOT THE 3.8% OF OUR POPULATION — IT IS A LARGE PORTION OF THE 75% OF AMERICANS WHO SAY THEY ARE CHRISTIANS – but, do not follow the Commandments Jesus gave us; nor do they follow the Ten Commandments handed down to Moses from God. No Christian precept may have been violated more than the scriptures telling us about Marriage. How many married Christians are following what the Word of God says about marriage? What Baby Boomers passed down to our children, and grandchildren is a lack of respect for our heterosexual Christian marriage. If the institution of marriage had not been sorely abused, we would be a wholesome America not needing to “Make America Great Again.”

How many marriages failed because The Lord was not present in the marriage? I can tell you that The Lord was not present in my failed marriages. Then I got on my knees and asked the Lord to forgive me for having a victim mentality when it came to relationships with men. I did not know my scriptures well, and therefore, I had no reference of what life was all about. Because I did not know my Bible, I was totally without any real help. We exist for God’s glory, and if we are here for God’s glory, then we should know what pleases God. One day I prayed to understand the scriptures, and it was as if a light had been turned on in my soul, and in my mind. Not only do I understand the scriptures, but I also understand who is in the scriptures and why my understanding is so important to a happy life.

Not long after that, I prayed on my knees, and asked The Lord to pick me a husband who loved The Lord, would be faithful to me, and who would love me in all the ways I love. My marriage with John for two decades has been a miracle to me every day. The love and respect in the beginning has grown over the years. Hardships came and went without much fuss, because we had something bigger in our lives than teen aged children testing us at every turn, careers, wealth, or health issues. I look back and see much love and laughter every day of our marriage ordained by God. We pray to be an example to our loved ones, and to others . . . even to be a catalyst for others to improve their marriages. John and I see other good marriages, and we are further strengthened in the purpose of the gifts God has given each of us to be a help to you when we are able.

For Americans to “Make America Great Again,” America’s Christian population must renew their relationship with Christ, and renew their commitment to great marriages. Great marriages make great families. Great families make an involved citizenry that looks to local schools, churches, and community institutions with The Lord’s Christian Absolutes in mind. WE DO NOT CHECK OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH AT ANY DOOR, FOR ANYONE. If we are Christian, who we are is Christian to the bone.

Sadly, only a small percentage of today’s American Christian population has read The Bible. Because they do not know what their Bible says, they have nothing of encouraging value when it is most needed.
“Today, about one-third of American adults report reading the Bible once a week or more. The percentage is highest among Elders (49%) and lowest among Millennials (24%).” (2) The Word of God, contains the Moral Absolutes Christians need to live a wholesome life.  ‘All come short of His Glory’ (3); and when we have fallen short of His Glory, we are to repent, seek forgiveness, and move on in life without the need to keep going back to learn the same lesson over, and over again. We are to grow spiritually, for which there is much help in studying The Bible.

Satan, and his minions, exist to trip you up by giving you the Big Lie of Moral Relativism. It means that my faith is the faith of life, and someone else’s is the faith of death. Moral Relativism says that they are equal and both true. It also means that the death crowd believes their views should be taught to my children, and it is only fair for my children to be exposed to their minority faith. I do not believe in Moral Relativism, and cannot abide by such negative and lethal forces to be allowed anywhere near my children, and grandchildren.

The truth is that our marriages are a reminder of the relationship Christ has with His Church here on Earth. When we dishonor the millennium old tradition of Christian marriage, we are also dishonoring our relationship with Christ – we are The Church – Christ’s Church. Our marriages should be an example to all the goodness of Holy union with our spouse, and with our Lord as members of His Church. There are many scriptures about marriage, but this is the most excellent in my view:

“EPHESIANS 5:
“20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto The Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church: and He is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as The Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by The Word,

27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as The Lord The Church:

30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and The Church.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Not that John and I have the perfect marriage, for there is no such thing under the sun; however, we stand on 20+ years of the closest thing to it that either of us have ever seen. We have seen other good marriages, but ours is almost supernaturally excellent. The Lord matched us up – two givers. The love and mutual respect is a part of the success. I think that we like our male and female roles, and we enjoy being male and female as God made us down to the DNA in our cells. We have also been blessed beyond measure, and our prayers have all been answered. We do not forget to ask Him to help us attain needed medical help, as well as help for others. Some say we are lucky. I don’t believe in luck; I believe in recognizing the blessings in our lives without ceasing.

Solomon was the second son of David and Bathsheba. His mother worried that his father had taught him to be a womanizer. Bathsheba’s pet name for her son is Lemuel and we see in Proverb 31 the advice she imparts to him regarding a wife – a wife worthy of a King!!

PROVERB 31
10 
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

We have witnessed in America the deliberate masculation of women by certain factions of our population, and the counter emasculation of men in that process. For every movement under the sun, there is a counter movement that occurs. Women hit their forties and wondered at their biological clocks tick, tick, ticking away, and the absence of available marriageable men. Many of these women became bitter and angry, without recognizing if they had played a part in the sad outcome . . . without asking for forgiveness for the error of their ways, and their biological clock alarms stopped ringing. Many men who turned from women, have not found the peace they were seeking. The saddest part in all of this is the effect it has had on the next two generations.

The studies of children in America is a hotbed of information. It matters not who did the study, or how scientific, there is always a group of naysayers. “Dr. Mark Regnerus is a University of Texas Sociologist who rocketed to fame – or infamy, depending on one’s views of homosexual parenting – in 2012 with the publication of his study about how well children are doing.” (4) Other studies from the LGBT crowd have proven to be “fixed” by the subjects in the study. Dr. Regnerus’ study skyrocketed because of his actual random sampling of a large study group. BUT, we can look to studies of children from broken homes, alcoholic homes, abusive home, welfare homes, and homes of any extreme element, to find that children from these homes are in an emotional pickle, just as the children in the Dr. Regnerus study.

Children need boundaries for themselves and their friends (so important), for their siblings, and for their parents – the rules of acceptable behavior – or Moral Absolutes. To find success in our lives, we need only look to our Lord and Savior, and what He tells us in the scriptures. My favorite place for Jesus advice is the book of Matthew, but they are found in all the Gospels, as well as the letters Jesus wrote to the churches in Revelation, and on every page of the Bible. The most important and widely read book since Jesus death and resurrection, is sadly not being read by all Christians. It is the only book that will help heal our Republic; and it is pivotal in American’s “Making America Great Again.” Without a return to Biblical Christianity, any attempts of restoring the Republic would be weak at best. This is where the healing must begin.

I KNOW WHO THE “P.C. POLICE” ARE, AND WHAT TO DO, AND WHY

When I was about seven years old one of my friends, who we will fictitiously name TrueBlue, told me something that would temporarily devastate me in that singular way children can fixate on a very bad secret. What TrueBlue had told me is, “My Mamma told me that your family is going to hell. While your daddy is barbequing on your driveway, he drinks beer.” Being a tender-hearted child, I went home and cried my heart out.

Even at that young age, I eventually reasoned the whole thing through, and made a little headway to my eventual discovery that there is a difference between faith and man’s religions. What triggered the beginning of me developing my faith, instead of one of man’s religions, came by surprise a few months later. I was asked to get the lettuce out of TrueBlue’s refrigerator while sandwiches were being made for our lunch. There, in the back of the large vegetable crisper, was a six pack of beer.

I now know that I had been upset over something said by the unthinking “P.C. Police.” Who knew that the “P.C. Police” was alive and well in the late fifties? In my experience it went like this: From erroneous pulpit, to a parent, to a child, and on to my young ears.

Shortly after that incident, I asked a neighbor if I could swing on their swing set that was never used. I could see how pretty their back yard was through our common fence. I was seeking a pretty place to be alone and think. This is unusual in that I was normally too shy to ask an adult pretty much anything, much less, ask for what I perceived to be a favor.

I remember swinging on that beautiful, windy day just as clear as if it were yesterday. As I was swinging I was singing what was in my heart and mind to a presence I could feel. We are to know The Lord / God in the very least through His Creation. Why I could feel this truth at such a young age, I cannot begin to tell you. In hindsight, I know that God had a plan for my life, and The Holy Spirit was with me from an early age on – long before I would completely understand. I believe that during traumatic events in my young life, I would pray – and my prayers were not only answered in the VERY long run, but I felt protection from the Holy Spirit – in the meantime – from childhood forward.

I decided to do some investigation into all different denominations of Christian churches that my friends and their parents attended. Children have very active imaginations about many things. Several years later, it seemed to me like all of these families belonged to different Christian clubs, that made them superior to me in some way. In my imagination, it went like this (since I had candidly asked my Mamma why we didn’t attend church on Sundays), “Poor girl, her father was raised Episcopal, and her mother was raised Presbyterian, so they decided to not take her to either church.” This imagined sentiment just made me dig in for more research. Erroneously, I thought they were closer to The Lord than I could ever be. None of us deserve the Grace we receive, and through much Bible study in my adult years, I came to understand that.

FAST FORWARD to the present and I am still concerned about this thing we now call the “P.C. Police.” In America, we attribute the failures of our Christian Faith and culture in very general terms to the “P.C. Police.” Faith and culture failures affect: children /schools, families / communities, community / churches, adult’s / work places, all of the above / entertainment. How many Christians talk about the need to do something about the whole “P.C. Police” that no one effectively does anything about – and now call it the “P.C. Police Culture.” Today, Americans have become accustomed to being a society of excuses to explain their failure as an individual, a family, a community, a state, and a nation to the monstrosity we are saddled with:

1. Ignore it, and live in my own little bubble, because someone else will better know how to fix our society, and do something about what our children are exposed to.
2. Participate in un-Christian activities, to get along – TO BELONG, because I am strong enough to do these small sins and not let them truly affect me . . . surely God will understand . . . after all, we are all sinners anyway.
3. Buy into the lie that everyone, but Christians, deserve the right to change our American culture, into the failed cultures that have come to America – not as immigrants – but as infiltrators.

I looked to the scriptures for help in understanding what we are dealing with. It just so happens that I am studying the book of Acts. No sooner did this question come to mind, then I read the answer. Funny how these things happen to appear exactly when I need them. There is a plan for my life and the more I study my Bible, the easier my life’s plan seems to unfold. I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe in purpose, the Gospel, and faith in my Lord, Jesus Christ.

I would like to present from The King James Version of the Holy Bible, the first 26 Verses of Acts Chapter 3 to set the groundwork in order to learn something about the “P.C. Police”. It takes 4 minutes of your life to read this scripture. I promise you will not have wasted a second. Our lives are always enriched by learning in the scriptures. I can only testify to you that it is true for me. Highlights of scripture, and words / highlights between [ ] are my doing.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee:

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And all the people [Acts 4:4 about 5,000 present] saw him walking and praising God:
And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people,

Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.

But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.

But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.

Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

After this, Israel’s elders and priests, and the Sadducees had Peter and John held. Since so many people had seen a previously extremely lame man (from birth) healed in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, they were in a quandary as to what to do to convince the people that they held the power, and wanted the business with disciples stopped. They needed for the spreading of the Gospel to be squashed – period.

Because so many had seen the miracle involving the lame man, they could not charge Peter and John with anything. They decided to beat Peter and John, and ordered / threatened them to stop spreading the Gospel.

Here we have the “P.C. Police” ordering men to lie, and forbid them to tell the gospel regarding Jesus Christ. Peter and John understood that these synagogue leaders would tell the people over and over again that there was no miracle, it was a trick of some kind. They did punish people for telling the truth. But Peter and John were men of faith that had the Holy Spirit alive in them. They continued to spread the gospel for decades, and true to the scriptures, feared not.

Peter died 33-34 years after the death of Christ. According to the early writers, he died at or about the same time with Paul, and in the Neronian persecution, A.D. 67,68. All agree that he was crucified. Origen says that Peter felt himself to be unworthy to be put to death in the same manner as his Master, and was, therefore, at his request, crucified with his head downward.

Because of who Peter was, he is a martyr. Peter promoted life, and salvation through Jesus Christ. Today, much of the world has it backwards, they declare themselves martyrs, and blow up innocent life as well as their own. They promote a culture of death.

In overwhelming majority, American Christians, because they were not true to their faith, allowed the enemy within to divide and conquer. They did not stand firm, as The Body of Christ, and say no to division, and every kind of selfish activity imaginable – at the cost of our children, the family, The Church, the schools, the community, and the Republic.

Every ‘Milk Christian and Apostate Christian were the weak link that used the words and actions as the “P. C. Police” to change our culture and our religion. Inviting all to become submissive to the idea that there is no personal responsibility to any action, and there is no right or wrong – they believe it is all subjective.

Did we, as Christians, learn to love the least among us? No, and due to the guilt the enemy within the “P.C. Police” used our guilt to elevate the least among us to high places in our courts, in our politics, in our schools, and even in our churches. We are supposed to love each other as Christ loves us. We are not supposed to lower our moral, educational, and political standards so everyone on the planet is poor and ignorant – except those evil enough to exempt themselves from the culture they push upon us.

If our “denominational religions” had been doing God’s work, they would not have diverted their congregation from the parts of the Bible that require us to be moral. If every Christian – and Americans are still claiming to be 85% Christian – would take their Bibles and their families to the local schools their children attend in their neighborhoods, and simply put on the door for the day, “The Body of Christ,” and left the man made opinionated part of denominational faith behind, can you imagine how different our faithful would be from coast to coast – loving the least among us, but elevating human activities with hearts and minds God-ward. Neighbors would again know who each other are, and be willing to help each other instead of depending on the government – which gives the government the reason to tax us severely. Legal Immigrants would be welcomed into whatever neighborhood they lived in. (There is that whole thing of obeying our laws that Americans would be able to control.) Healing our land must start at a local level, and in short order we would find those among us who are natural leaders. Being 85% of the nation, the Christian vote would once again prevail in America.

If American Christians were striving for the sustained worship of our Lord together, neighbor with neighbor, the results would be overwhelming. . . I hear you – doing what is right is not always easy, but it is always superior than doing nothing, or the wrong thing. ‘Evil needs nothing to prosper, but the inaction of good men.’ Our enemies picked up the “P.C. Police” banner from our failing culture, and used / infiltrated our own “P. C. Police” to bring us down to our failing status. Even now we look among ourselves and find no willing decent people to be our leaders. This is a reflection of the sad state of the majority.

I am sick of hearing people say that the Bible’s truth is outdated. I say not. They have not read and studied the entire Bible, and learned what was actually said, and who it was said to. Christians have made the exact same mistakes Israel did – and therefore, did not [deserve to] know their King when He was among them. Just as Israel put their man-made traditions over God’s law, so has much of Christianity in America.

[Jesus is talking here (He)]
Mark 7:5 – 23: Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. [Do you have ears?]
And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

Are you a Jesus worshipping, and Bible based Christian; or are you a Christian for show only? Being the “P.C. Police” means we are judging all we come into some kind of contact with; and are hypocrites because we do this against our Christian faith. THINKING WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUDGE in God’s place is the root of the “P.C. Police.” WE EACH NEED TO ASK OURSELVES, IF WE ARE THE “P.C. Police”? Are there so many American Christians who are the “P.C. Police”, that the enemy within – also the “P.C. Police” – are entrenched, and easily hidden among us? If the answer is yes, what are we going to do about it? It is never too late to get on our knees and ask for forgiveness, and for help. Let God see hundreds of thousands on their knees, unified by our Christian faith. Do it every day. Read and study your entire Bibles, and welcome your neighbors in, as The Body of Christ, and pray on your knees together. Turn away from those things that make us weak, and easy targets for Satan. Time is growing short, for any window of opportunity for Christian America to take back our nation, and once again enjoy the prosperity and protection that God provided. And for Heaven’s sake – never turn this ship erroneously toward the same direction as Europe did – from persecution – to persecution – why our Christian ancestors came to create America.

SO MANY PROBLEMS . . .

So many problems.
#3 There is no political party for Christians to get behind.
#2 The word Democracy has been our Conservative, Constitutional Representative Republic’s death knell for decades. Democracy is synonymous with Socialism. Period. Thanks to Americans not knowing what kind of government we are supposed to have, and why – we have a nation of “Democracy” lovers.
#1 The Conservative right is a relatively small number of voters. The “Republic” is swarming with citizens who are not self-governing. Not only that, but the citizenry is swarming with greedy people who want to be given stuff they did not earn – and adding the illegals to that mix has become a mind-boggling government fail. A Constitutional Representative Republic does not work without a self-governing citizenry.
In prior times the citizens were self-governing due to their Christian faith, and endeavoring to live by the Commandments God gave us / Jesus explanation of what He expects in Matthew – including an explicit definition of marriage.
Those believing in the Constitutional law of the land is no longer the majority, and the current citizenry need, and swarm to anyone who will lie to them, and then they lie to themselves. “It wasn’t my fault; I was not the person responsible for ________ .” They will hang the problem on anyone whom they care to destroy. It is a fill in the blank sentence for everything that has gone wrong – and today’s citizen is not only not taking responsibility for everything going wrong – they want someone else to magically fix it. When they elect from among our citizens, those who lie and cheat by some self appointed right to do so, it validates any lesser or greater thing they may do themselves.

OURS TO LOSE

As I study the first 2 chapters of Acts, I believe that the early Church, the Body of Christ, met in the homes of Christians, and in local Jewish Temples. I imagine that just as when America was young, the faithful knew each other by family, by name, and by faith. When family and friends worship together, it is more likely they will help each other through the joys and crisis of life.  Such Christian communities describe fellowship that would put a huge part of today’s government out of business. As Peter told the Jewish community, the faithful are born again in Christ – Jews, and Gentiles:

KJV Acts 2:38 – 40 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

Today, America’s population is barely aware of Christians being persecuted around the world; because the secularization of the faithful in America is well under way. We find ourselves swept up in the granddaddy “untoward generation” perhaps of all time. In Revelation, in the letter to Pergamos, Jesus tells us that he hated the “deeds” and “doctrines” of the Nicolaitans. Hate is a strong word, and Christians should not ignore the dire warning authored by our Lord. Pergamos is the church married to the world. The Nicolaitans had one foot in the occult pagan religions, and one foot in Christianity. It is an important lesson to any Christian; but in today’s world, where many Christians have not done “the first works” (Reference: Rev. 2:5), they may not even be aware of their dilemma. They may not be aware that they have one foot in occult pagan religions, and one foot in Christianity.

The message that came upon my heart and mind is this: Beware of any ministry (large or small) that is married to the world. To discern such a thing requires Christian Biblical study, Christian maturity, observation, and as always in such matters – prayer. Christian fellowship should be centered on God’s Word, worshipping God, and when filled with the Holy Spirit Christians are changed and are aware that they are no longer tied to this world.

One helpful thought. Christ brings believers to Him. We are correctly involved when we ask the Lord to use us as He will. We primarily encourage others by example. We each have our own unique talents and ways in which The Lord helps us to His service.

Those who brag that they brought “X” numbers of mankind to Christ are married to the world in the vanity of their own works. Such vanity is just one part of the denominational problem – mankind adding to God’s Word, and taking away from God’s Word, as man sees fit – twisting the scriptures into unrecognizable doctrine, and thus intermingling the ways of paganism and the occult, which has been the deception, and division of denominational thinking for centuries.

There is only one correct translation of God’s Word. Over 2,000 denominations have divided those that should be the unified Body of Christ. People often pick a denomination that has the set of man-made rules that they like the best, and many churches are behaving badly to bring in anyone who can put money in their collection plate. Sadly, at the other end of that scale, many choose to not participate in denominational churches, but are Christians outside of fellowship. Cafeteria style, false Christianity have turned off Christians in many instances, because these Christians are candidly seeking Bible based churches that are becoming the exception and not the rule.

Meantime in schools, businesses, and government, Secularists are banning the use of the word Jesus; because there is power in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They also ban The Ten Commandments, because the power of an electorate that is self-governing in endeavoring to live by The Ten Commandments, in and by our Christian faith, would result in elected officials governing within America’s faith for fear of being rejected. It wouldn’t matter if the elected were faithful, or pretending to be faithful – the positive result in living among the faithful majority would be the same. As I proved out in prior 2012 commentary http://www.webcommentary.com/php/ShowArticle.php?id=hwaltersj&date=120810

the entire “separation of church and state” is a false argument that wrongly changed America’s foundation.

Is America at a crossroads? Is America already lost? Is America on the brink of amazing revival? I do not know the answer to those questions, but they are valid questions that the faithful should be asking themselves. Should America fail, We The People will only have ourselves to blame, because the failure was of the faltered faith of Christians who leave their Christianity at the door to their work, at the door to their schools, at the door to their public life, and even at the door to many of today’s secular churches. Are you living your Christian faith 24/7/365; or are you leaving your Christian faith at the door to your life?

WHAT I BELIEVE

I have received some heat lately from friends regarding my attitude toward conservative candidates. How can I explain . . . I have been fighting the pro-American fight for decades. I do believe in the Constitution, and Conservative ideals. I have studied history, and the founders. America is one of a tiny group of nations originally created for Gods glory.

And then again . . . America is like the Civil War – fought primarily for the power of the dollar and control – disguised by the cause that captured the imaginations and heart strings from every good soul in America. The end of slavery is a noble cause. If only it were completely true. How do you explain millions of Americans working their butts off for 45+ years with little to show for it when they retire; and millions of Americans and Illegals living off of the workers. ALL of this mostly unproductive charity is government ordained, and government arranged. It has not made Americans better off, but has destroyed the fabric of what America was. American charity is defined as slavery for those who work to support their own family, and support those on the dole. It is also defined as slavery for those born into the nanny state – because the nanny state is designed to keep Americans living in poverty.

The tail has been wagging the dog in America, and we are just deceiving ourselves if we think the crap won’t hit the economic fan one day, as well as our spiritual fan. The current American economic plan, and spiritual-undoing plan, is designed to drain and destroy America.


SO, one day, in a recent year I began waking up from the American political nightmare, and I began to slowly realize there was no political party for Christians. All political parties lead to the same destination for America; and America is now speeding down the wrong path more rapidly with each year. The Holy Spirit in me said, be still – you need to understand God’s Word, and The Lord in you, before focusing on the changes in America . . . and realize it is going to take the majority of our American nation of primarily Christians, on their repentant knees, for America to change her path in history.

EVEN SO, all Christians should already know that Satan is ruling this earthly realm . . . the world is his yet, for another season. I am in God’s right hand. Satan cannot have me. But, seldom on this planet have Satan’s temptations been so prevalent, and in such a wide variety – to constantly tempt, and desensitize me and you. We live in an age different than any other before. In the privacy of our own dwelling we can have temptations on screens of many sizes.

How far has it gone? When a man who will have male DNA, as given by his Creator, for his entire life, is given a prestigious award for all of this Christian nation to see, for being brave by running around publicly acting like a woman (I read he still has a penis, and therefore classify him male, as God made him) – then I have to ask the 75% of Christians who live here in America, is this something a Christian nation would promote with national pride, and awards?

As Christians, all we can do right now is to let The Lord, by way of The Holy Spirit that is in us, help us to be the best Christian example we can be. In case you don’t realize it, I am talking to the 75% of Americans who claim to be Christian. Not perfect, for I am not, and you are not perfect . . . But, we do live by example, for others to see The Lord in us in every breathing human moment of our lives. IF that had truly described the majority of us these last many decades, we would have continued as a nation on a more righteous path. The enemy, Satan, would not own so many facets of our nation, our lives, and our children’s lives.

We are instructed to seek out Christian leaders. If we had done this diligently on local, state, and federal posts, we would not have been so severely deceived on so many fronts. We would not have a president elected that no one truly knows anything about. We would not have a castrated Congress of those elected from among a BROKEN us. We would not be entertained by such sexual and violent fornication of mind, body, and soul. We would not allow our youth to openly disrespect – their parents- their teachers – persons of authority – and THEMSELVES. We would not send our beloved family members to fight for our culture (mom, home, spouses, apple pie, and children), and allow them – the greatest troops – to fight at a deliberate deficit in the rules of war – against pure evil in purpose and deed. We are broken from coast to coast.

 

How did we lose the momentum in the noble directions of our forefathers? How did we lose our way? As a Christian Nation, we lost our faith. No one is supposed to judge anyone’s definition of Christianity. But know this. Without elevating God’s Word, we are Christians in word only. Less than ¼ of Christians today study their Bibles.

 

Without real Christian faith, belief in the gospel regarding Jesus Christ, belief in God’s Word, and God’s laws for man . . . There is no America. There are not thousands of correct interpretations of the Holy Bible.  There is only one correct meaning of the Scriptures. There is no true America if not defined by our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and held together by our Biblical Christian faith – we are just spinning our wheels with our insane and corrupt elections. We are silly in thinking that anyone voted into office from among a broken electorate, will turn the ship of America back on a righteous, Godly course.

 

Liberal judges of all political parties are writing laws all the way to the Supreme Court, instead of holding Americans accountable to our laws as written in our Constitution. Constitutional law was replaced by elusive case law that changes with the wind of political opinion. Now, we elect a president who declares his cronies above the law; and ignores existing laws.  We have millions of people in our nation that are not only here illegally, but they are coddled with money stolen from hard working Americans. America has become a lawless nation, full of liars and thieves.

 

Any child has the tools to tell you what is wrong with a system of a handful of political primaries that swindle me out of being able to vote for any good man I wanted on the presidential ballot . . . and thereby rigging elections long before this Texan ever had her vote. There is no party representing Christian Americans Period. This is the huge elephant in the room that no one wants to own up to, or talk about. We are a snivelly bunch of Christians who will not stand up for our children. As long as all the Milk Christians, the Lukewarm Christians, and the Pseudo-Christians silently agree to not talk about, and own up to the truth – Satan’s hold on this once faithful nation will not be broken.

Christian America, what say you? WHERE ARE YOU?

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Revelation 2:5 – Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

FROM THE HEART: THE WIDE DOOR OPEN TO AMERICA’S ENEMIES

As American Christians, who are the super majority, we should never leave our faith (which defines who we are) at the door to enter our homes, our jobs, our schools, or our government. It is amazing that true Americans have bought the lie, and allowed our government to adopt the lie of ‘separation of church and state’ – which is the wide door we left open for our enemies to enter. Have you noticed there is no separation of church and state for our enemies in America? This could not have been possible if American Christians were practicing their faith 24/7/365, and were educated to know what a criminal scam this ‘separation of church and state’ is that our enemies have widely used against us.
Here is a link to my Commentary at Webcommentary.Com of August 10, 2012, titled “American Revival & Mr. Jefferson’s Letters” for information regarding the truth behind the origination of “separation of church and state.” Needless to say, Mr. Jefferson is turning over in his grave – over and over and over . . . – because of a lie in the way the phrase has been used to divorce America from her primarily Christian citizenship.

YOU WANT TO BE AGGRAVATED AT SOMEONE?

I am working on a “From The Heart” series, and had not intended to post until I finished it. Today I saw some complaining about life, unions, and money, and just couldn’t resist THIS COMMENT:
Do you want to be aggravated at someone?
UNIONS are INTERNATIONAL, and being International have sold your jobs out of the country with the intention of bringing your salaries and benefits in line with the rest of the world – so it is their game – the Union and the International Business (ie. Crony Capitalism) all over the globe where they pocket the lions share.
IN CAHOOTS with government CAREER POLITICIANS who pass the laws and write the regulations (that no citizen actually votes for) that make them rich over and under the table.
BUST THE UNION –
BUST THE CAREER POLITICIAN – (with term limits for even dog catcher)
Who play the ignorant Americans like a fine fiddle, and have stolen their wealth
through the Unions, through the phony bubbles, through Crony Capitalism, through the propped up Stock Market.
EDUCATE YOURSELF AND PEACEFULLY RETURN CONTROL TO THE PEOPLE,
FIND OUT what real Capitalism is and strive for that,
AND stop believing every junk science that you are fed like global warming.
A handful of people have made massive fortunes on the junk science!
(DUH! The new age scientist will sell his soul for grants, and personal wealth. The ones who rise to the top are the soul sellers – yours and theirs.)
Our adult kids are pedaling so hard to keep up, they may not figure it out until they are all in the poor house.
MOST OF Our adult kids are without true faith – AND in the apostate church. The Mega Churches that tell them their sins are okay, and here are seven steps to being rich through faith . . . while the Mega Church becomes rich . . . well, we cannot say we weren’t warned. We were told to not be deceived.

SEVEN REASONS WHY I PRAY YOU WILL WANT TO STUDY THE KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE

Points of Interest: In 1604 King James I of England authorized English translation of the Hebrew and Greek Holy Bible. Political entities from Papal, to Puritans tried to influence the outcome. Perhaps due to Divine Intervention, none of them were able to be much of an influence. There were English translations already in existence, but they were discovered to not be literally good translations. King James was influenced to authorize the project to bring into existence a good English translation. He did perhaps have some influence to keep political commentary, as seen in the Geneva Bible, from the King James edition. Further influences kept Papal traditions out of the King James Edition. The first result was released in 1611. King James I of England died in 1625, and did not get to see the finished product that took many decades to complete. Like many of you, I was told by detractors that King James I had final say over the English translation that he authorized. That is amazingly not true. The scholars from several universities would work very hard to make the King James Version the best English translation possible.

# ONE

The type of ‘Kings’ English used in the King James Bible was chosen for its beauty. It not only maintained the integrity of the beauty in the written verse, but also maintained the integrity of the content / translation. If I were able to read Hebrew or Greek, I would choose to explore them because I have read of the sheer beauty in the sometimes poetic, and always literarily beautiful verses.

In the New Testament, Jesus quoted from the Hebrew about 10%, and from the Greek 90% of the time. The Greek translation of the Holy Bible is called the Septuagint (Latin for 70). It is called the Septuagint because 70 scholars translated the Old Testament Holy Bible from the Hebrew to the Greek.

We now have the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other modern archaeological finds which give us accurate dating and verify the amazing integrity of the scriptures. Many twentieth century Biblical scholars have experienced great intellectual pleasure in having dated the scriptures most accurately before the proof was found. You may find it an enjoyable exploration to search for yourself what science now knows about the parting of the Red Sea, and what lies at the bottom of that site. There is also a treasure of information in ancient writings other than Biblical that verify people, places, and even events that are Biblical in nature.

Similar to the Greek translation, a minimum of 74 scholars translated, and cross-translated from the Hebrew and the Greek to give us the King James Bible. The scholars came primarily from Cambridge, Oxford, and Westminster. The English of the King James Bible was more formal than the English dialect spoken during the many years of this translation.

I didn’t see the sheer beauty of the King James Bible translation in my early years. I prayed for understanding, and I soon began studying a few amazing Christian commentators. I remember praying for the understanding, but honestly do not remember how I came to know of the several excellent commentators that were instrumental in my theological education. One day I woke up and realized that every word, every phrase, every nuance of story, every single thing in the whole Bible (Old and New Testaments) were connected so intricately with the rest of the scriptures that I am confident the Lord by way of His Holy Spirit guided the 40 authors over thousands of years to write One, 66 Chapter, Bible. A single message system from our Lord.

Before I had prayed for understanding I had been trying to make something written deliberately for simple understanding, much – much – MUCH harder than it had to be. What it did require was studying the entire Bible, and not only popular or isolated verses as I have known some to do. Once I learned to read my Bible at face value, all of the prophetic scriptures, salvation messages, and the Lord on every page were finally there for the reading and discovery. It is important to understand that the rewards I have received from studying The King James Bible, came from frequent exposure to the scriptures. What you receive from the scriptures / blessings, is directly proportional to the time you spend in this activity. The rewards are HUGE.

# TWO

There are centuries of Biblical scholars who praise the integrity of the King James Translation.
There are a few translation problems with words that just do not translate very well. The most famous is the word kill that is more accurately translated, ‘thou shalt not murder’.  I have often seen scripture from the many, many modern translations. When I go to my King James Version and read the correlating scripture, and then read the entire chapter the scripture is contained in, I often see that there is a shift of meaning in some way from other translations. Sometimes, the change is minor, and other times it is major. A shift not only changes the individual scripture, but the link between it and other scriptures is then lost. In today’s world we are realizing that our history has been changed in our schools without our input. As time marches by I have noticed that the history we, and our parents learned is largely no longer found in our grandchildren’s education.

Just as those who are in control of nations decide what version of history will be taught, today’s Christian is bombarded with much misinformation to change Christian belief, and even to turn men from Christianity. We find ourselves in a Christian Nation where not only denominations have been divided and subdivided, but the “Christian” scriptures are often altered in many ways from the subtle to the ridiculous. There are thousands of “Christian” churches that are no longer Bible based churches.

I have read that our neighbor to the north, Canada, has passed laws outlawing parts of our Christian Holy Bible. If your evil goal was to bring the whole world under one secular religious umbrella you would necessarily change existing religions. If you are one who is sitting on the sidelines asking yourself, “what has happened to America?” I strongly suggest that a large part of our answer lies here. Americans have abandoned their Bible based faith at the door to their education, to their jobs, to their neighbor’s home, and in some cases – even at the door to their faith. If we are to be The Body of Christ / The Church, our values, principles, and beliefs come from the message system The Lord gave us, our Christian Holy Bible.

# THREE

In the King James Version of our Holy Bible we know some facts that are clearly defined for us . . .
–     The entire Bible is for our learning / understanding.
–     It is easy to know which chapters are written for the Jew, and which chapters are written for the Gentile (Christian). It is easy to understand who is talking, and who is being talked to.
–     God’s promises to Israel are supported through the New Testament. One would not believe in “replacement theology” if they have studied well the KJV Holy Bible.
–     God’s promises to the Christian are also easily found through the New Testament. A Christian should not believe in “social justice” as an Earthly Christian trait – for as long as men have their “sin nature” utopia / socialism is impossible. Vengeance belongs to the Lord, and therefore we have an “equal justice system” to help us live in peace with one another. We will live without a “sin nature” in eternity with our Lord, but at minimum that is more than 1007 “years” down the road.

# FOUR

The world is changing rapidly. Information is doubling, and eroding at the same time. Should The Body of Christ, The Church be forced underground by evil world agendas, it will be important for family members to be studying the same Bible . . . for fractured extended families across the nation to be studying the same Bible . . . and for a fractured world to be studying the same Bible. It would break my heart if we lost the beauty of the scriptures, as well as the integrity of the scriptures – maintained across The Hebrew, The Greek, and The King James English.

# FIVE

The King James Holy Bible is the Bible my grandparents, great grandparents, Et al. – the most widely used Bible of “The Greatest Generation.” This was the Bible my mother passed down to me, as her mother had given to her, and I gave to my daughter.

# SIX

The King James Holy Bible directs my husband and I as equals, but different in the ways the Lord created us different . . . promoting love, respect, faithfulness, and fulfillment.

# SEVEN

The King James Version of the Holy Bible is still the most widely purchased and read version in today’s market of hundreds of English versions. Why are there hundreds of English versions? It is my opinion that they are at least in part a tool to further divide The Body of Christ / The Church.

ONE SIMPLE PROFOUND QUESTION:

Sorry I haven’t been here much lately. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer almost a month ago and we have been in much prayer, testing, family time, his first Chemo last Monday, and first hormone therapy shot on the 24th. Above all, we have calmed ourselves in our love for each other, and our trust of God’s plan for each of us.

TODAY I come here to ask you to pass along my ONE SIMPLE PROFOUND QUESTION:

If you have read / studied the Bible, you should no longer have any doubt of Bible prophecies. When you are witness to the planet’s governments coming together against Israel, how could you any longer doubt that Bible prophecy is God’s truth? The Earth has a land surface of just under 196 billion square miles, and Israel only has, 8 thousand of those square miles. (God actually gave Israel more.) It defies all logic that the world would come together evilly against such a tiny state – except that the prophecies be fulfilled. That most of the world would ignore the fact that Israel is only defending itself against an unreasonable enemy makes the prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation bear the fruit of belief. It was mind boggling when I read the Bible prophecies decades ago that such a thing could come true. Even my beloved America has a government that is turning it’s back on Israel.
