HEADS UP – THE FLAW IN THE AMERICAN AWAKENING

America has been in dire moral straights for a long time. “The enemy within” our government continued the policies of several prior Presidential administrations: DIVISIONS of color / racism; of political parties; of sex / gender; of Antifa getting by with violence against the Middle and Upper Classes, and others. Most important, Christians have divided, divided, and sub-divided The Body of Christ into thousands of denominations designed with man-made agendas. America is divided, both sides cannot be right – well, one of them IS left. The truth is that those who are on the right claim higher moral ground, but it is often a false claim. Their patriotic hearts are in the right place, but what they believe is flawed. The problem with America is her Christian Faith; it is broken.

The Christian right is praying, but they are not a cohesive group under Christ, as The Body of Christ, as they should be. Americans have become desensitized to evil and are no longer able to look evil in the eye and call it evil. The “Great Awakening” is primarily a political awakening so far, and not a spiritual one. Dozens of YouTube sites that are reporting the truth to Americans, are missing the necessary boat for success. The “Great Awakening” must take Americans back to their Christian roots. The Lord is in the wings waiting for Americans to not only come back to Him, as their “First Love,” but to be loud in sharing their rekindled Christian Faith – via witnessing to all that ‘have an ear.’ There is no testimony on this earth stronger than the TRUE witness testimony of Christian Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Founding Documents, including our Constitution, were based on Judeo/Christian Faith. How are we to make America Great Again (MAGA) without our true King, Jesus? America is not to bend their knees for any other faith, or political substitution for our faith. Our Representative Constitutional Republic requires a self-governing population. Let there be no mistake, self-governing Americans are Christians who endeavor to live the Lord’s Commandments for humans. In the successful years of our Republic, most of our population endeavored to live up to these Commandments written in our hearts and minds. Of course, there were those who were not Christians or Jews, but most in this category of Americans considered the Commandments to be good for them and their families. God’s natural laws are written in every human DNA but is only truly activated when Christian Belief is in exalted play.

It isn’t as if Christians do not know that only the truth will set our course straight and good, the following is one of the most quoted passages in The Bible – AND WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US.

Ephesians 6:10-20 Holy Bible KJV
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
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.
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.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
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,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

If the Christian right, that came out to vote for Trump, were solid in their Christian Faith, and loud about their Christian Faith, as well as supporting President Trump, the lies and betrayal we are witnessing would quickly be handled by a DOJ that is in tune with the majority of Americans.

75% of Americans say they are Christian. 20% of Americans say they have no religion. Religion and Denomination are interchangeable in America.  I have no Religion / Denomination; I have FAITH IN THE GOSPEL REGARDING JESUS CHRIST, which makes me a Christian BY FAITH, AND GODS WORD. Even family members have argued with me about my Christian Faith. When asked if they have read Jesus words in The Bible, they say “no.” I ask them, (and you if applicable), to hold your opinion of the Bible until you have read it and studied it by prayer to God before and after each study session.

Another fine point regarding Christianity, we all know that many who claim to have no religion, are mad at God for some reason; and many return to their Christian Faith when they need God. When America reconnected historically in her Christian Faith, evil slithered behind a rock until the next time in the future history when America becomes weak in their solidarity behind their Christian Faith. We the People do have it in our power to turn the country solidly around today (MAGA) if we would live in The Word as we have done in the past. This will be a day when “The Great Christian Spiritual Awakening” will be described in our National Pledge:

I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic
for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES

Congressman Hon. A.S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist Goals into the Congressional Record in 1963 – 55 years ago. This was a wake-up call to the up and coming Baby Boomer generation of the United States of America. There are many reasons why the Boomers did not heed this call:

~ Blue laws were overturned, and many raised up in a Christian Church, could find reasonable excuses to shop on Sundays, take the family out to eat, go to an indoor movie, and a hundred other reasons to find fellowship outside the Church. Instinctively, I believe many Boomer Christians were very Bible savvy, and understood that THE CHURCH is the ‘Body of Christ’ (the people), and not the man-made rules of thousands of Christian denominations. They famously, “threw out the baby with the bathwater.”

~ Christianity and family go hand in hand; when Americans drifted away from the church, they drifted away from knowing their neighbors – and even knowing their own family members. Divorce became common. Children no longer had the foundation of the church, and local fellowship to give them a sense of belonging.

~ Christianity and our Constitution go hand in hand; Constitutional law being replaced by the ever-elusive case law created an atmosphere of anything goes in our legal system. Boomers became less and less confident in our government, and our legal system.

~ Vietnam. Boomers lost their friends, brothers, and fathers to this “police action” that had zero support in most of America. Instead of directing our anger where it belonged, many Americans placed the blame in error on our Armed Forces. The divide between America and our Armed Forces would grow wider with time.

~ Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood has continually to present day worked to achieve her goals for the reduction of poor and ignorant minorities. “Her goal, for the United States, was to increase the representation of the “native white strain”, which did not include first or second generation immigrants in her mind.” “Blacks have been aborted at about 3 times the rate of whites, according to Statistically Abstracts of the United States 2012.”

~ Hippies turned into Yuppie’s, and America’s love affair with careers, homes, cars, lavish vacations, and corner offices would do as much to wreck America’s families as divorce.

~ When we turn on computers in our schools, and when we turn on our iPhones we see an apple with a bite out of it – this representation of original sin should have given us a warning of what was to come. For every good we can name for our computerized world, we can name an endless list of evil. One huge example is internet pornography which is an epidemic in our world.

~ The war on drugs. The war on poverty. Two domestic wars that are dismal failures. Both are infested with drugs and poverty.

Below is the list of 45 Communist goals to infiltrate America and destroy her from within. You will see how far down this rabbit hole America has fallen. Americans can partner ideologically with Trump and our Military for a last chance to turn this around, with a “Great Awakening.” Americans who state their faith is Christianity has been holding the line at 85% of our population for many years. I pray for our “Great Awakening” to be defined by our Christian FAITH:

“2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version
“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.”

THE MOVEMENT TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FROM WITHIN is defined by the goals Congressman Herlong quoted from Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist:”
My remarks are all in [brackets]  . . .

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

[As long as man has a sin nature, it would be foolish for the U.S. to disarm, because our enemy is Satanic and would never actually disarm. Our enemy among us prides itself in telling lies that Americans want to believe.

“Ephesians 6:12 King James Version
“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.” ‘Spiritual wickedness in high places’ – even in our own government.]

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and
s   regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

[DONE – YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY IS GOING TO OUR ENEMIES. HOW DID YOU (AMERICA) LET THIS HAPPEN WITHOUT A FIGHT?]

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

[As one of my childhood friends says: Snicker, Snicker]

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in
1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

[Is it possible that America affects the outcomes of elections around the world? How can we, with a straight face, accuse anyone else of this crime?]

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to
suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

[More of that snickering behind my hand.]

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand
that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
(Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as
by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now
doing in the Congo.)

[My nightmare is that I wake up and find either Gore, Clinton (either), or a Bush as the Secretary General of the UN. Can you imagine the out and out fight to take over America?]

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by
claiming their activities violate civil rights.

[LOUD SNICKERING]

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current
Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations.
Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which
are under Communist attack.

[Done. But, we are fighting back, and are reversing Agenda 21 across the country. It is just taking too long because parents are too busy with their lives to realize how important this is.
Newspapers recently talking about children who are demanding to by-pass parents, and affect law making directly should have scared the crap out of Baby Boomer children who have lost control of their children to the idea of Communism and Socialism. Where did they learn this? In our public schools that our tax dollars support 100%.]

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing,
policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression.
An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks
and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness,
repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation
of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity
in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

[How many shades of gray? My ex once told me, “That most of the world lived in the gray areas, not the Black and White that I lived in. Why, if I didn’t know about his promiscuity, because he would be careful, it really doesn’t hurt me, does it?”]

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit
the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a
“religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground
that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

[PLEASE READ MY COMMENTARY DEBUNKING “SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE” FOLLOWING THIS LIST OF COMMUNIST GOALS IN THE UNITEDS STATES OF AMERICA.]

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of
step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide
basis. concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American
history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more
emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

[It is getting harder to snicker . . . The last three remind me of the last three or four Presidential elections.]

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the
culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the
Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

[Say what?]

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all
behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can
understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of
gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

[Definitely not snickering.]

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.
Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence
of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the
American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use
[“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

[OH MY!]

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-
government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court.

[The End.
How do you feel about our America right now?
Is it past time your voice was heard on Capitol Hill?
The voices of over 100 million American adults would change our nation into anything we decided we wanted to be.
Me too. Constitutional Representative Republic.]

My commentary from August 10, 2012 on “Separation of Church and State” . . .
originally published in webcommentary . com
where I wrote as a guest author from 2010 to 2013;
after which I have written commentaries under my own blog texasladyjuanita.com

I have taken a long vacation from writing while caring for my late husband, and best friend, the king of romance, John. He went to be with Jesus on January 16, 2018. I miss him so much it still takes my breath away. I didn’t realize how much time we each spent spoiling the other until he was gone. I don’t have someone special to spoil anymore. On the other hand, for weeks, I would sit in my car waiting for the door to be opened – he did that for 23 years. I do not wish losing the love of your life for anyone. Such loss is not for sissies to bear. Everyone keeps telling me that I am the strongest woman they know. I am starting to believe it.

I have a pile of writing that I have not published. It is time to jump in with both feet. I hope to publish some new work soon. In the meantime, I felt it is important to publish this information that I have published before, because it is very timely.

American Revival & Mr. Jefferson’s Letters

It never occurred to me before to read Thomas Jefferson’s letter that the phrase “separation of church and state” came from. The Lord moved upon my thoughts today to find and read the letter, and I am so thankful that I have read it. Prior to 1947 the phrase was widely believed to protect Americans from the government dictating which Christian religion Americans would belong to. Since 1947 the courts have seen fit to give the phrase a meaning which clearly was not the intent of Mr. Jefferson. The phrase has been used to divorce American life from America’s Christian religion.

I am sure you all know by now that the phrase “separation of church and state” does not appear in the Declaration of Independence or in our Constitution. It does not even appear as a popular phrase in preserved writing during the time of our Republic’s founding. The phrase must be viewed as it is in context of Mr. Jefferson’s whole letter. I believe that if Americans were to read the letter with an unbiased mind and heart, they would cry out in agony of the injustice and of the damage that has been done to American society as a result of court rulings based on the term “separation of church and state.”

I have inserted my commentary between lines of Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist association, written in 1802. My commentary will be italicized and enclosed in brackets:

~~~~~~~~~~
Gentlemen,

The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which

[approbation = approval],

you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

[He is happy that his constituent’s opinion of his pursuit of his constituent’s interests is equal to his actual faithful and zealous pursuits on their behalf.]

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship,

[We owe an accounting of our faith, and how we worship, to no one but God.]

that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions,

[The government has its limited and legitimate powers spelled out in the Constitution. Those in government, once elected, should not be spewing their personal opinions as if they were law.]

I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,”

[He is in awe of the American people with their absolute power and authority declared that their law makers will never make a law establishing a particular Christian religion as the religion of the land. This is clearly in contrast to The Church of England, which they removed themselves from. They came here to have the freedom of whatever Christian religion they wanted to participate in. There were, to name just a few, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Quakers, Baptists, Lutherans and Methodists. All thirteen colonies had constitutions that protected Christianity as the state religion. Even today, almost every state in the union has our Christian God in their State Constitutions. Until recent diversion, oaths of office have always been taken on the Holy Bible, and saying the words, “so help me God.” Sessions of State and Federal Congress have begun with Christian prayer beginning with our first elected officials. Until modern times, Sunday has been honored as a day of rest; this tradition is peculiar only to Christianity. When I was a girl, almost all stores were closed on Sundays. Most families spent time with their family at church and at home on Sundays. Currently, one can barely tell the difference between Saturday and Sunday. The family unit has deteriorated with the decline of our Christianity being present in our daily lives.]

[The phrase “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” insures that no one can stop me from practicing my religion. Mr. Obama stating that “we are no longer a Christian nation” comes as a surprise of his ignorance that 85% of Americans are Christian.]

thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.

[Until modern times, this phrase was viewed in the context of the rest of the letter as declaration that the government will never be able to dictate what religion we belong to. This phrase lends itself to our religious protection from the state.]

[During the time of our Republic’s founding the term “rights of conscience” was a common phrase used for our Christian, God given rights and associated responsibilities. These rights belong to us every minute of every day we are alive. These rights define who we are. Who we are cannot be divided from our activities at home, at play, or at work – even if our work is that of politics – or, perhaps even most important if our work is in service to our citizens. Our Christian population is in dire need of returning to the “rights of conscience” that defined us in the birth of our American Republic.]

[To quote Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to the Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church at New London, CT, February 4, 1809, “No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience.” Mr. Jefferson is actually saying that there is provision in our Constitution that protects “the rights of conscience.” There is no better definition for something Mr. Jefferson wrote, than for him to define it for us in his own words, in this second letter.]

I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

[After the agonies of war and suffering borne in gaining our independence, it is quite natural to see Mr. Jefferson satisfied to see man restored in his natural rights. Those natural rights to man from God (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness), and knowing that these natural rights are in agreement with man’s social duties. Part of man’s social duties is exercising his voting privilege, or being voted into office to exercise the bounds of his “rights of conscience” in representing his constituents.]

I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem.

[It seems obvious Mr. Jefferson is returning good wishes in kind that he received from the Danbury Baptist association.]

Th Jefferson Jan. 1. 1802.

~~~~~~~~~~

It is time for the majority of American Christians to end their silence on this issue. The courts have been getting it wrong since the 1940’s. If we value the revival of our American Christian faith, families, education, Constitution, and Republic, this issue is central to revival.

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.

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.

MY CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2016

down-the-street

John and I are alive and still have our child quality in good working order. hehehe Christmas is first and foremost for us to joyfully celebrate Christ being born, and knowing the message of The Cross.
It is difficult for children to appreciate the concept of salvation and the work of The Cross. We make the Christmas holiday important to our children, so that when they become older, we can share the value of salvation, and the work of the cross. They will already know, because we did it right, that Christmas is a time to teach the joys of giving, and receiving love, food, and gifts.
Merry Christmas to all of my friends, family, and acquaintances I see in person and in FB every day; and a very prosperous new year.

P.S. If someone rags on you about your Christmas tree – remind them that it is for fun, especially for the children – NO ONE worships the trees – not even close.
We worship Jesus Christ. Can I Get An Amen?

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?

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?

VISITING HOURS

I cannot say exactly why my thoughts have gone to this topic today. Anyone who follows my blog, will soon figure out I am just as likely to write about what the Grandgirls or the Grandboy did today, as I am about my yummy Chicken and Dumplings, or religion and politics. But that is how life should be. When I see someone who writes only about politics, I wonder if they have a life that others can relate to. Are they happy slipping too far into only one facet of life? I wonder if they realize that it is in the ordinary aspects of our lives that we can correctly see the subjects of religion and politics.

Today, I am alive in every sense of the word, but that has just been a recent development. Thank you my friend D’Lesa for figuring out why I could not recover. For over a year, since two major surgeries a week apart, I could not fight my way out of the health hole I was in. Oh, I worked very hard at making my appearance as good as it gets, but one small outing could put me back in the bed for a couple of days doing much worse than before the outing. If anyone out there needs what I did, you can email me at wbs77777@hotmail.com NO, I am NOT SELLING YOU ANYTHING. I will just tell you where you can find it on the internet.

My thoughts today actually went to my hospital room of three weeks in February 2011. My husband’s constant presence and help were truly what kept me from just giving up before I started my recovery. He has a way of not saying a word – I can just read things in his blue eyes. From our first date forward John and I, together, are like a fine old wine you just want to savor forever. (No, we are not winos, but do appreciate wine-thirty now and then.) I don’t believe this happens to other people every day, but what do I know. I can only tell you that I am blessed beyond measure. Jesus is my rock, and John is my excellent husband.

It meant so much to me when family members came to visit me in the hospital. It doesn’t matter if the visit is five minutes or five hours. However, often five minutes is best when there is a throne next to your bed, and that throne is a huge step up from the bed pan. I remember how hard – what a huge ordeal it was – to get from the bed to the throne. I felt like I had accomplished a tremendous feat. If I was silly enough to lie down in the bed once I came home, I soon remembered there were no nifty buttons to push my bed and me into a sitting position. I felt awful waking John from a sound sleep in the middle of the night to sit me up.

After I returned home I received a few calls from people who said, “I was meaning to get to the hospital the last week or so to see you, and I am so sorry I just never made it over.  Well, you weren’t in there that long . . .” Of course, I would say, “I was in there a little over three weeks.” They would feign shock that I had actually been there that long. Nothing makes a person feel worse than to hear I meant to come see you, but  . . . Hmmm But what? The only correct and logical thought for you to think at that point, is that they simply didn’t care enough.

This is a huge problem in America – being symptomatic – of America’s root problems. Besides it being important for my well-being, and improvement, for you to show up to see me (pretend I am your friend here), it is important for your well-being for you to care about your family and friends above all else on this planet. Most people do not have the spouse that John and I have, and you may just be at the top of their list of human beings they care about, and hope you feel the same way. You may never fully appreciate how important “visiting hours” are until you are flat on your back, staring at the door to your room for the duration of “visiting hours.”

Having said all of that, there is the occasional odd duck in the family who does not want visitors. We suspect that they do not want any of us to see them unless they are A1, 100%, their usual gorgeous self (and you know who I am talking to – the only person I ever knew who didn’t want visitors)! There are those people from Hollywood or New York City who don’t want visitors when they have their faces, butts, boobs, and God knows what else lifted. Like we don’t know what they did the first time they show their odd looking faces in public. (You people know who you are too!) I think it is safe to say that almost everyone we know would like for you to visit them in the hospital. If in doubt, do it anyway!

God created us for His glory; but he also created us with a huge capacity to love and care for each other. I think it is a requirement. Many of us have been a bit preoccupied with the evils within our nation. It is totally understandable. But, (always a but – huh?), it is in how We The People actually live our lives that determine how much evil does or does not filter into the Republic. Life is not about what the television is peddling today, or the violent computer games, or what scandals and lies our government is hypnotizing us with. Get off the television and the computer and live.

Visiting hours are between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., and all the other hours of the day! Americans are the kindest and most generous people on the planet – but we are in the process of being processed right out of our family and friend-friendly heritage. We need to get back to the habit of Visiting Hours. Other than work, and family meals together, Visiting Hours should be the most important thing in our lives. Why do our friends and family have to be in the hospital before you MIGHT go and visit with them. I know I am not describing everyone, but I am describing enough of America who can change our future in the span of 30 days.

Without our daily supply of love and companionship we become a nation that could be infiltrated right in front of our noses and never know it. The Boston Terrorist Bombing made this perfectly clear. If we were the people our grandparents were, those people would have been discovered for who and what they are long before they could successfully build bombs to terrorize us with. America is, and will be, the sum of the energy we expend today individually. We can individually be involved with those friends, family, and NEIGHBORS whom live near us, or we can be isolationists within our communities who can be infiltrated at any day the enemy wishes. America was not largely invaded during WWII because most homes had a gun for protection, and most people knew who was out of place in their community almost instantly. Changing America back to the safe nation Americans once enjoyed, is as simple as each of us individually changing our life-habits into the wholesome image we so desire. If Americans stop being isolationists tomorrow, our Republic could be vastly different in 30 days. The evil works are only working because we are not united in our families, and in our communities.
