‘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.

D-day FDR prayer. (two steps from hell, heart of courage)

Our Christian Faith was our greatest strength. Our Christian God was our protector and definer of who we are as Americans. FDR knew this. Our parents and grandparents knew this. The phrase “Separation of Church and State” is only a quote from one letter, and taken out of context – never anything to do with our Constitution and our Law – A LIE AS IT HAS BEEN USED BY OUR ENEMIES WITHIN TO DESTROY US. What have you done to defeat Satan in this lie? To do nothing is to render all our war heroes to have served in vain, and many to have died in vain.

LIFE CHANGING QUESTIONS – CATEGORY TWO . . .

  • Because there are now, and there have ALWAYS been mostly arrogant politicians who consider themselves American royalty, superior to the American citizen, and believing they are above American laws . . .

  • Because our government is instrumental in funding the destruction of the American family through the promotion of abortions, and alternate lifestyles . . .

  • Because our government keeps throwing money at the problem of education – when graduates in the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s in a drastically less expensive school system received a significantly better education . . .
  • Because our government forced millions of Americas to participate in Social Security, and Medicare for their entire careers, but have raided those funds instead of having the funds earn money in safe investments, and even distributed those funds to persons who did not put any funds into the system, and continue to fund the fraud instead of putting a stop to it . . .
  • Because our government uses a calculation for the increase of Social Security and Disability payments by calculating the increase in expenses as compared to the payments – AND THEY EXCLUDED FUEL / ENERGY AND FOOD in the cost of living equation – and they use rents instead of actual mortgage payment averages . . .
  • Because our government has not only devised to destroy our faith and culture, but terrorize the American citizen by not closing our borders . . .
  • Because our government refuses to target terrorists as examples unto our laws and justice by purposely not naming the enemy, and even protecting the enemy by erroneously calling the Ft. Hood Islamic Terrorist Mass Murderer – a “workplace incident” . . .
  • Because our Internal Revenue Service has targeted American Citizens for bureaucratic abuses to the extreme that the last presidential election was very likely affected . . .
  • Because our government controls newspaper and television news media . . .
  • Because our government is bribed by lobbyists into an unrealistic view of what Americans need . . .
  • Because our elections are compromised by rotten voting systems, when there are secure systems working successfully in other nations who are not supposed to be as advanced as we are, but have surpassed us in reality . . .
  • Because our government actively stopped dead people from being removed from the eligible voter lists . . .
  • Because our government officials and bank corporations have conspired to steal the wealth of the American citizens . . .
  • Because this list is meant to make an important point, there are likely other items that belong on this list – please realize exactly how large and cumbersome the violations from American government upon its citizens is mind boggling in how bad things have actually become . . .

THEREFORE, AS IN OUR HISTORY, THE ONLY REMEDIES FOR The United States of America as has been proven in our history:

  • When the Administrative, Legislative, and Judiciary are SEVERELY BROKEN . . .
  • When our government no longer follows the Constitution of the Republic . . .
  • AMERICANS MUST OWN ALL OF IT, AND ACTIVATE OUR 4TH BRANCH OF THE GOVERNMENT

–          THAT IS “WE THE PEOPLE”

–          PEACEFULLY

–          BUT VERBALLY ACTIVE BY THE MILLIONS

–          DEMANDING THE IMPEACHMENT OF JUDGES
AND ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO ARE ANTI-                  AMERICAN

–          A MINIMUM OF 24 MILLION OUT OF APPROXIMATELY 245 MILLION ADULT AMERICANS MUST BECOME VERBAL AND VISIBLY INVOLVED IN THEIR LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

–          THEY MUST FIND THE BEST AMONG US TO RUN FOR OFFICE

–          THEY MUST VOTE FOR THE BEST AMONG US

–          THEY  MUST STOP WITH THE 400 SPLINTER SPECIALTY GROUPS AND COME TOGETHER FOR A POLITICAL PLATFORM THAT GETS RID OF or OVER-RIDES THE BAD LAWS QUICKLY, REPLACING THE MOST IMPORTANT ONES EXPEDIENTLY, AND THEN SET OUT TO CLEAN UP THE ENTIRE SYSTEM

Today’s FB post of interest:

Now . . . bear with me . . . I received a commentary from a pastor, and I read the following article, which inspired my response. If you have a faint heart this is not for you! (but it is – sadly)
PASTOR COMMENTARY:
Revelation 13:17 speaks of the mark of the beast — commonly known these days as the Antichrist: “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Often prophecy is revealed a layer at a time, seemingly to give God’s people more understanding of what is about to come.
The tiny island of Cyprus may well serve as a modern petri dish for what could happen under a “beast” empire. The European Union has required Cyprus to shut down its state-owned bank and raid 40% of accounts above $130,000 to raise about $5.5 billion in exchange for a $13 billion bailout. Leading up to the deal, Cypriots were only allowed $130 per day in bank withdrawals.
Cyprus is divided into two parts — one is recognized by the United Nations as a “democratic republic” and the other part is recognized by only Turkey. UN peacekeepers provide a buffer between the Muslim and Christian sides. The Communist party controls the politics in Cyprus.
Cyprus is a popular destination for “Arab” visitors. Sex trafficking and slavery are a problem in Cyprus, according to the U.S. State Department Trafficking in Persons report. It is also considered a “Casino” economy. In other words, Cyprus, like the United States, is in a fallen moral condition as well as a debt-ridden economic state.
The Cyprus national debt is $21 billion, or about $18,000 per person living in Cyprus.
In comparison, the U.S. National Debt is $16.7 TRILLION. With interest, it is $59.2 TRILLION, which is $187,645 per taxpayer. This, according to U.S. Debt Clock, which obtains its figures via the US Department of Treasury.
If the European Union is willing to confiscate bank accounts over $18,000 of debt for every person living in Cyprus, what would the occupant of the Oval Office be willing to do over $187,645 in debt from each taxpayer — 10 times the amount in Cyprus? The US is a large reflection of Cyprus–a tax and spend socialist government and moral decay combining for a “beast”-type government takeover.
The EU action in Cyprus should serve as a stiff warning to all of what a powerful government can do when the people are unable and/or unwilling to defend themselves against it. For example, Cyprus has the same gun policy that the federal government is proposing in America — gun owners must be licensed and prove a genuine reason to possess a gun. The Cyprus population is essentially disarmed. It had no will nor ability to prevent the EU action.
While we cannot stop the march of prophecy, we can determine our place in it. As the people of Cyprus have determined their place in the EU, the citizens of America can look at this example and decide — beast submission or self-determination.
Best decide before it’s too late.
Bill Wilson — Pastor
===========================
I read several articles all over the place. This one is spot on . . .
http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2013/3/21_Sinclair_-_Lagardes_IMF_Disaster_Forces_Bernanke_Out_Of_Fed.html

==========================
AND SO I WRITE . . . (because I am always able to talk about the elephant in the room . . .)
It is even more devastating in the immediate. What Bernanke and our leaders have done is make the American depositor believe it will all work out . . . ie. Bank deposits are up . . . stock market is up. Americans believing that their deposits are safe – but it is all smoke and mirrors. Those gullible in America (those same people with their head in the sand – about 250 million), because of this stunt by the IMF (which is based in Washington), Americans will start pulling their money out of the banks and the stock market . . . thus making all the quantitative easing smoke and mirrors null and void. To me this means that everything is accelerating. We could wake up in the middle of a huge disaster any day now, when internationally they are not dumping the dollar discreetly any more – it will be an international dump coupled with Americans pulling money – which will shut the central banks down – and our currency will be dead in the water. Americans would panic. Blood will be shed.
All the pretty Americans are preoccupied with the rotten Supremes and Gay Marriage, while the other hand has sold America out. Russia is behind what happened in Cyprus – that is why they are saying Russia is winning this battle in the war. Bernanke wants out before it all collapses around him. He has played HIGH stakes poker with our stock market and dollar – went “all in” – and lost.
What Pastor Wilson is describing from prophecy is already a done deal.
I don’t see any reason to believe the banks will keep functioning for long.
The Emperor has no clothes – and suddenly everyone will admit it – and the illusion
of hope that we can work out saving the dollar will be gone. Russia, China, Iran . . . how long is the list of our enemies who are working together to see the end of the petro-dollar – thus the American dollar. Masses will quickly sell their souls for a bowl of mush, when the price of a bowl of mush is suddenly $200, and the banks have closed to the general public – but open for those who will say or do anything to be fed. War? Hmmmmmm Those that hate us outnumber us in such large numbers, and our open borders by land and by sea and by air . . . we will fight, and there will be no place to hide with today’s technology. This is what happens to a Godless nation – it becomes irrelevant – not even to be found in the Bible prophecy of what is to come.
I thank the Lord for each day of peace with my family. If I could take our young (kids and grandkids) away from this place that no longer resembles the America I grew up in, I would do it in a heartbeat. But we cannot run from reality, even if we are too old and disabled to be a viable force. God help us all – the wise and the ignorant. I will not be afraid, for I expect the Lord to take us up soon.
=========================
I understand that my response came from pure emotion, coupled with facts presented. It is a possibility. We are the watchmen . . . we were told to pay attention, and we do . . . it is just that it seems that there is too much bad stuff happening right now . . . where it leads I cannot tell you for certain . . . I have a crystal ball – but it has never been anything but a large pretty bauble on the bookshelf. I set out to understand the Bible, the world and money, history, science . . . and now I wish I didn’t. Did I tell you about the toy ponies I bought the Grandgirls for Easter?
