PEOPLE, PEOPLE, WE THE PEOPLE — THE TAIL IS STILL WAGGING THE DOG!

In the two prior elections, 50% of Christian America sat on their collective rears, and made a huge difference in electing Obama to office by way of not voting. Having learned something of value, the pulpit activated itself and its flock.  Christian America got out, voted, and made a huge difference in electing Trump to office. Post-election, Americans have gone back to the daily song of their lives.
Trump, surrounded by the enemy in Washington, has been abandoned by most of his Christian base; therefore, he is not conquering our conservative checklist of issues each day, and not claiming victories for us. As I keep saying, only Americans can make America great again. Trump never said he could do it without our help.

WHY?
BECAUSE THE TAIL IS STILL WAGGING THE DOG.

As a conservative group of Americans, we are numbered in the tens of millions. If we had the foresight, planning on all levels of community, and fortitude of our political foes, each of our voices would be heard on a daily basis (peacefully), and then politicians would be lining up to support us and our issues. We cannot send a few good men to the evil swamp of Washington politics, without our help, and expect results good for us, our families, our employers, and America in general. When we go to political dormancy, we are consequently leaving those we sent to Washington to flounder. Because we have been silent for so long, it will take tens of millions of Christians speaking up daily to be taken seriously. We still have our First Amendment Rights – barely.

The gay caucus has the dog wagging the tail. The reason you have gay people on television 24/7/365 is because they are verbal, and make sure their message is out there every day, frankly being crammed down our throats. I have no problem with gay people having the same rights as I have; my problem is that they are disproportionately seen everywhere on the boob tube, the radio, and in the commercials for hundreds of industries we shop with every day.

THIS PHENOMENON POSES THIS QUESTION:
WHY ARE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS NOT ORGANIZED, EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR.

Why are we not organized as The Body of Christ, in such large numbers, that the politicians would be following us around trying to please us in our schools, employment, entertainment, and even in our churches. Most of the churches I have visited in the last 35 years, were full of old people. As parents and grandparents, we must do a better job of activating our Christian offspring! Christians, as a huge group, can not only better our lives here in America, but rescue the persecuted Christians, Jews, and so many others all over the world.

At the end of the day, Christians will only affect the medias, our schools, our workplaces, and the family when we have a PR department equal to or greater than those active on the left. Visibility is the key to having this dog wagging its own tail. When a Christian majority speaks as a unit, we will be the largest group in America, and served by our government again.

My heart, mind, and soul sees the possibility of America’s Body of Christ living peacefully together, and being a light for the world as an example again with such wisdom to guide us as Proverbs Three below. It is written beautifully. I have read that The Hebrew, The Greek Septuagint that Jesus quoted from, and The King James Bibles were all deliberately written as beautiful prose. My heart sings when I read the King James. If you can put your hands on Dr. Chuck Missler’s (“rocket scientist”), or Lee Feldick’s (rancher) study of Proverbs 3, you will be delighted when you learn what some of the phrases mean. One must go back to the Hebrew and the Greek to obtain a proper understanding. Such Bible study in small groups of five to ten produces the best in personal Christian growth. As Christians, Proverbs 3 should lift our hearts and souls for God’s glory (why we are here in the first place); and should lift us to service – even political service for our Lord, and King.

Proverbs 3 (KJV)
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of
thine heart:
4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:
12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than
fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared
unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the
heavens.
20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall
be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do
it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it
by thee.
29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.
33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Remember as you journey to different books of the Bible:
2 Timothy 3: 16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Another awesome place for understanding of how our lives should be lived in love and hope is the following, Deuteronomy 6 . . .

Deuteronomy 6 (KJV) 1 – 25:
Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
(For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers.
To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken.
And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you?
Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
And the Lord shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.

BAT CRAP CRAZY?

Because of much scientific discovery in the last century, we know several axioms to be true. When I bring these up in conversation, people look at me like I am Bat Crap Crazy. Not me; oh noooo. Sadly, information that should be common knowledge, may not be for all groups, and possibly not most groups. There are, however, some scientists on the other side of the world who just might be Bat Crap Crazy.
They are looking for the original information that made creation . . . the “glue” of creation. They are trying to re-create God’s “Big Bang.”

Our Lord spoke a word, and His Creation came into being. I, with my comparatively miniscule information storage in my brain, just picked up my telephone and spoke, “define axiom,” and the information was forthcoming. (It is so easy to check your words, so they match what you are trying to say.) We talk to our telephones, televisions, microwaves, and cars expecting them to perform verbal commands. Why would we doubt for a second that God, with His obviously HUGE knowledge, would speak words and have actions occur.

Some of the scientific axioms that I believe are important to understand God’s Biblical Word:
– We know the universe is finite (not infinite).
– Whether you are talking about length, energy, mass, or time – they are made up of indivisible units that cannot be further divided beyond a known point. At that certain point in the dividing, the thing being divided loses all locality, and becomes subatomic. This is the amazing stuff of Quantum Physics.
– We are therefore inside the boundaries of the microcosm, and the macrocosm.
– OUR REALITY – OUR SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM – IS INSIDE A LARGER REALITY.
– Everything in our space-time continuum is digital.
– We live in 4 knowable dimensions, and at least 6 that are not directly knowable. The easiest way to get a mental idea of the other six dimensions is to know that without them there could be no calculations done for a probe to go to Mars.
NOTE: Because of two personal experiences, I have previously documented, I believe that when Adam was expelled from the garden of perfection, where he was made in God’s spirit image – Adam lost the ability to see the other six dimensions, and became a changed and naked man of the flesh that had a need for covering. When Jesus came to save us, he took on the appearance of man in the flesh.
– There is no such thing as truly random anything. Computers can simulate pseudo-random; but by scientific definition of random, it simply does not exist. (So much for the Theory of Evolution.)

– TODAY, many are afraid of the experiments done at the CERN Hadron Collider in Switzerland, along the French border. The scientists experimenting with matter, and its opposite dark matter, are doing work that most informed people would just as soon did not happen. The internet is full of stories and videos claiming that the CERN scientists will destroy mankind, and our world. There are stories that they have invited into our world demons from other dimensions.

The first step to handle fear is to seek to understand the truth of what is happening at CERN.
This link is to a site that explains what we need to know in layman’s terms:

https://youtu.be/JnxFYS6PK9g

The second step, for Christians, is to read the many Bible verses that deal with our Lord, who created the earth, and holds the earth in a constant balance – until He replaces it with a new heaven and new earth. The last verse below warns us that The Lord expects us to know Him through His Creation – at the very least. It seems to me that scientists are in the precarious position to absolutely know on a professional level God’s Creation, yet many deny God’s existence. These same scientists who have turned their back on God, are influencing our children negatively.

There are so many verses I could have shared, but I try to not overwhelm. It takes time to study each verse in context. The diligent, and faithful will undertake such Bible study. The phrase that appears the most in the Bible is ‘fear not.’ Remember this instruction as our nation seems to be in freefall.

Many times, in the Bible we are admonished to not be deceived. The only way I know how to do that is to be in The Word every day, and look for Jesus and redemption on every page. It is there. Most who have studied with heart and soul on Him, learn the truth of His Word; that it is given through the Holy Spirit, from outside of our space-time continuum. I believe that we are living in a time of knowledge that makes such insight more possible than ever before.

Colossians 1: 16 – 17 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that
are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before
all things, and by him all things consist.

Nehemiah 9: 6 Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of
heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all
that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
[He will not let Global Warming harm us.]

Psalm 96: 10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be
established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

Revelation 11: 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of
the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy
servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great;
and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that
dwell therein. [Jesus’ Ownership]

Psalm 93:1 The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with
strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot
be moved.

1 Chronicles 16: 30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it
be not moved.

Romans 1: 19-22  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for
God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew
God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise,
they became fools,

When the people at Babel were building a stairway to heaven to know what God knows, God confounded them with many languages, and scattered them. Have faith that God will confound any who try to be gods themselves. I am not afraid of what is happening at CERN because I know that His Word tells me He will not let that happen.

I AM A WHITE WOMAN BY BIRTH; WHO ARE YOU?

I am a woman.
I am wife to a Marine.
I am a mother.
I am a grandmother.
I am a Christian, by belief and faith.
(Baptized by the Holy Spirit)
I AM A WHITE WOMAN BY BIRTH – DECIDED BY THE LORD
(Psalm 139, Jeremiah 29:11, Galatians 1:15)

I believe The Lord has a plan for my life that is good.
(Jeremiah 29:11 again.)

America is a super-majority white population. We are not bad people because our skin is white, by any sane definition. Isn’t this the whole idea of MLK (and many others), that our skin color does not define the measure of who we are individually, or as a group. Our media is involved in a reverse discrimination propaganda scheme for decades that is hardly to be believed by intelligent people in the 21st century.

America is also 85% Christian, which also has a super-majority of white people. We are a good people as evidenced in our love of positive endeavor, family, charity, and goodness. We are NOT Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, KKK Members, or any other title others wish to falsely appoint to us.

I am appalled by the number of people in the above two groups brave enough to vote for Trump, who have since gone to sleep, and allow a group-think mentality to run amuck in our nation. Why anyone watches the – paid for by our enemies – news reports, is becoming beyond ridiculously sad. ONLY AMERICANS TOGETHER CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. This was Trumps whole campaign, and it requires the mental and physical activity of those who voted for him, to stand with him, and not let our enemies win the day – any day!

In prior generations, to be conservative thinkers, made us the backbone of a great nation. We were careful to raise our children to be responsible, productive and loving. It is the abandonment of knowing what it means to be a Christian nation that has so many allowing themselves to be called such vile names as White Supremacists. Consequently, we are now in for the fight of our lives to set our nation back on its correct Representative Constitutional Republic course. The more of us who wake up and join in, the quicker we will get rid of the insanity.

However, I always offer the caution: that does not mean that we become a nation of witch hunters. Learn from the history that tells people that turning 360 degrees from group insanity leaves you on the other side of the group insanity coin. Be humble in your self-corrections, and be strong in your faith. Take your prayers to your knees in your heart and mind, God will do the rest. (Also remember: “Matthew 18:20 (KJV) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”)

Face it. America is full of “luke-warm” Christians, and “milk” Christians who need to come back to the real church. The Church is not any denomination, but the Body of Christ – Period. Yes, we are to have fellowship, but that means as Christians – not divided into over 2,000 denominations. Divided we fall.

There are the true lessons in The Bible that must be learned. Here is a good one: You must love the enemy in your heart and soul; but you may have to defend innocents with The Lord’s help from your enemy. No, I didn’t even understand it for many years, but I know that there can be understanding – one step at a time until you get there. We, who have come to understanding the Bible on a deeper level, spent much time floundering before we got the insight as He means it to be. It came from much prayer before and after study, and the avenues opened to other people further in their endeavor to learn and understand.

‘Through Him All Things Are Possible. It is time for Americans who are Christian to come to the true church in the Body of Christ. When we do that, humble ourselves, have sincere repentance for our sins, and become changed after connecting, and being baptized in the Holy Spirit, He will start healing us and our nation.’ (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Taking you back to my childhood . . . so long ago . . . read the words . . .

“Onward, Christian Soldiers”

by Arthur Sullivan

‘This hymn is Sullivan’s most popular hymn. The hymn’s theme is taken from references in the New Testament of the Christian soldier for Christ.’
(II Timothy 2:3 (KJV): “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”)

1

“Onward Christian soldiers!

Marching as to war,

With the cross of Jesus

Going on before.

Christ, the royal Master,

Leads against the foe;

Forward into battle,

See, His banners go!

Onward, Christian soldiers!

Marching as to war,

With the cross of Jesus,

Going on before.

2

“At the name of Jesus

Satan’s host doth flee;

On then, Christian soldiers,

On to victory!

Hell’s foundations quiver

At the shout of praise:

Brothers, lift your voices,

Loud your anthems raise!

3

Like a mighty army

Moves the Church of God:

Brothers, we are treading

Where the saints have trod;

We are not divided,

All one Body we—

One in faith and Spirit,

One eternally.

4

“Crowns and thrones may perish,

Kingdoms rise and wane;

But the Church of Jesus

Constant will remain.

Gates of hell can never

’Gainst the Church prevail;

We have Christ’s own promise,

Which can never fail.

5

“Onward, then, ye people!

Join our happy throng;

Blend with ours your voices

In the triumph song.

Glory, laud and honor

Unto Christ, the King;

This through countless ages

Men and angels sing.”

Two good places to re-start your journey into your Bible:
Ephesians 3 KJV; John 1 KJV

God Bless.

‘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.

THE REAL WORK BEGINS WITH EACH OF US. ARE YOU READY?

Many have opined and prayed for several years for a miracle for America. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan is not a description of what we should expect any one man will do. I am sick of people announcing that they are going to sit back, watch, and give the man a fair chance of making America great again. Frankly, this slogan is not a referendum for one person to accomplish. It is NOT a referendum for one political party. In case you did not understand what is supposed to happen in America now, let me explain it to you. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN – OR THEY WON’T. Time will tell.

It is high time the American people took back their country. To make America great again, will require a LOCAL EFFORT from coast to coast. Requiring every city in America pushing a winning agenda to state governors, state legislatures, and federally to both Houses of Congress. We have a President-Elect who will fight for our American jobs, American business endeavors, and all American families. WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE READY IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO MAKE KNOWN THE AGENDA WE WANT. If you want to start a business, already own a business, or work for a business, you need to tell our government what it is your service or industry needs to be successful, and provide jobs for all who want to be a part of THE AMERICAN DREAM.

Whether you are a farmer, shoemaker, clothes maker, cement maker, homemaker or builder of homes, computer maker, hospital, own rent homes or apartments, run a school or are a home-schooler, dress maker, pie baker, furniture builder, etc., etc., etc. YOU NEED TO LET YOUR POLITICIANS KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO BE — SUCCESSFUL – TO BRING OUR INDUSTRIES AND JOBS HOME!!!

Every American should start looking at what we import from other countries, and ask ourselves how do we start making these things in America.
AMERICANS NEED TO BAND TOGETHER TO TELL OUR POLITICIANS WHICH REGULATIONS AND LAWS HURT AMERICAN BUSINESS, AMERICAN INDUSTRY, AMERICAN FAMILIES, AND WHY.

Americans need to be networking on a scale that hasn’t been seen since before computers made us all lazy. Business used to be conducted at social enterprises such as golf clubs, Elks Clubs, Moose Clubs, Veterans Clubs, Kiwanis, Lions, PTA, Alumni, Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, Every Town Council meeting should be packed to the rafters, Petroleum, Pharma, Medical, School Board Meetings, Business Networking International, Women In Business, Convention & Business Bureaus for every trade and service industry, OPTIMISTS for crying out loud!, Think Tanks for every industry that exists or has left our nation, Local Merchants Associations, CHURCHES, etc. etc. etc.

It is shameful how membership in social clubs has dwindled to almost extinction since the computer made us all social couch potatoes. Does your town have a Junior League? Does anyone remember what it was all about? The Junior League is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism in any city, or town. Thriving cities can be gauged by the volume of active social and charitable associations.

John and I dressed to the 9’s Saturday night and attended a charity event. I haven’t felt that much alive in a very long time. We were in a ballroom full of people enjoying dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions with one thing in mind – raising enough money to make a difference in the lives of many people. The Health Alliance of Clinton County financially assisting with health-related needs in the extended community. We were so pleased to be able to give – and we are seniors on a fixed income. A community that involves itself in fulfilling the needs of the community on a personal level is an indicator of a thriving community. Instead of the government deciding how to spend your hard-earned dollars for “charity” (often not actually helping anyone in need), it is important for the well-being of all citizens to be personally involved in helping others.

The quandary in “Making America Great Again” is the double nature of money. Spending money – spreading it around locally – is what every economy needs to grow. At the same time, Americans will need to spend wisely to keep our families’ hearth and home safe from going under as we re-build Americas industries.

We must return America to that which our moral compass was anchored in when Washington and his Congress dedicated America to our Christian God. Christian Americans (80+% of population) got out and voted on November 8 in a unified effort to return America to its moral origins, which will in turn return America to prosperity, and God’s protection. We must abandon Secular Christianity rooted in the wrong idea of other religions being the same as ours. We must return to Biblical Christianity, and the Gospel regarding Jesus, to navigate America back on solid moral ground. The real work begins with each of us. Are you ready?

END TIME PROPHECY – SIMPLE TO EXPLAIN

There have been a lot of good sermons delivered in the last few weeks, because those in political / societal control are turning the American ship further into deep destructive waters – destructive waters that most Americans are not brave enough to stand up against. Washington is a reflection of the majority in America. For truly, if millions of Americans were keeping Washington in line with God’s traditions and laws, our entire existence would change for the better almost overnight. America would be the nation she once was, when other nations worked to emulate the overall positive existence of the American people. Our government would once again tow the line of the majority of the people for fear of losing their jobs. Satan would crawl back under his familiar rock to hide for another season.  But, I can sum up the reality of all Biblical wisdom, and end time prophecy in one question:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

It is the age old pattern of Israel, and it is the pattern of Christianity, of history repeating itself every time mankind forgets who our Creator is, starts behaving as if men are gods, and forgets that we live for God’s glory. This question above is one that we each must come to terms with, and be prepared to not only live with the consequences, but are forcing our young to also live with the consequences of our individual choice.

It really is that simple to explain. I have recently been asked the age old questions that have been asked of every Christian who has studied the Bible for thousands of years:
1. Don’t all religions lead to salvation?
2. Where in Biblical history are we; isn’t the answer in Revelation?

I explain it like this. Milk Christians often go straight to reading Revelation to find answers. The answers aren’t just in one book of the Bible designed for Milk Christians. Salvation is through Jesus Christ, period. To study Revelation, you must go through every book of the entire (OT & NT) Bible to understand it – why Revelation is at the end. I encourage the masses who have not studied the Bible to do so. You will find answers to questions you didn’t even know you have. Only by studying the Bible will you receive the truth of Who actually wrote it. This is a truth that can only be obtained by your direct experience. I can tell you the truth all day long and give you fifty examples in short order to back it up – but – that will mean nothing to you. You must seek the truth to receive it.

There have been many “pre-tribulation” times throughout history. But, so far, each time, mankind turns the ship of earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory, and turns the ship away from the end times. One time, in the future, mankind will not wake up and turn the ship of all earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory. Only God knows which time that will be. For God lives outside of His creation (space/time continuum), and only He can see when that will happen.

Those of us who think of ourselves as the watchmen are absolutely saying, WOW, today does seem to be the season before the tribulation years – but, we do not know for sure. We are praying mankind wakes up one more time and strives to live for God’s glory. Yes, our nation (and most of the world) are being ruled by the Prince of Darkness – it says so in the Bible. His days are numbered. One day soon the end-time-prophecies will come true . . . or not, if mankind wakes up again. It all revolves around that one sentence – again:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

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?

PATIENCE IS FAITH IN ACTION

I dialed the IRS to change my address. The recording said my wait time will be about 40 minutes. I put the phone on speaker phone, set it down in front of my computer, and realized I had zero stress over this long wait ahead of me. That is amazing!!! Maybe older people really are wiser? It would seem that the great patience of my youth has returned to me in my retirement years.
I searched the KJV Bible regarding patience in my laptop’s search engine. James 1:4 – 8 came up via several different prompts in the search engine. After reading all of James 1, I realize that patience is faith in action. I wish someone had pointed this out to me many years ago. I am now shamed to realize that I had all but lost my ability for patience during the years that John and I raised teens. If I had realized that patience is personified as faith in action, I would have put myself in check every time I turned into an impatient-screaming-mimi!!

James 1 (KJV)
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

WHY WE ARE FAILING

Where is that pre-ordered line between right and wrong that I remember from my youth?
Without it we are living in Satan’s realm without our Armor;
The Armor that would have protected us.
But, too many have cast it easily aside –
Where lies and excuses reign as today’s truth.
And all the good people said what can I do against such evil?
Where murder goes unpunished.
And all the good people said, what can I do about such evil.
Where leaders are created by evil minion puppeteers.
[I will take a stand with the word minion – it means an evil entity which is used for evil purpose, by a greater evil entity that usually hides in the shadows. Gay actually means happy; I would like that word back too.]
And all the good people shuddered, and said I must pretend I cannot see such evil.
Even just men finally sell their souls to Satan to win elections; thinking they will fulfill their good intentions, in spite of who they now belong to. You know this one! The end justifies the means – except you and I know in our hearts that the road to hell really is paved with good intentions.
And all of his good people said, no, not my friend! I will support him as the lesser evil!
When the boob tube slowly made many women into whores,
Then we laughed with the emasculated girly men,
and then we laughed at all the disrespectful children . . .
THE FATTED GOLDEN SCREEN was then living in high evil cotton.
Where the bad guys win at the end of the show to make us more tolerant; and smear that line between good and evil into oblivion.
You know who they are working for . . .
And all the good people shook their collective heads and declared us insane for remembering our Armor.
And in retaliation to our remembered Armor the enemy within propped up obvious evil political systems, parading as religions of peace . . .
Even rogue anti-Christian Christians are preaching the gospel of YOU, instead of Him.
While Christians are being persecuted around the world, and par 4 smiles.
And Jesus definition of marriage was slain with barely a fight . . .
And our children are stolen and sold into slavery of deviant sexual intent.
And all the good people said it’s not my fault, what could I have done?
And all the good people said, I cannot remember what past generations did . . .
I am lost . . .
I need to be found . . .
What could We THE People have done?
The same as our forefathers
Ephesians 6 (KJV)
1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
