3. Nation Called To Prayer
I was sent this article just a while ago by a subscriber. It is very patriotic and heart stirring, and hard for me to make the comments I make about America at a time like this. But, folks, I have to be honest and truthful even though patriotism boils within me, I must prophesy AGAINST my country even in these trying times.
I AM THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
I am the flag of the United States of America.
My name is Old Glory.
I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.
I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.
When I am flown with my fellow banners, my head is a little higher, my colors a little truer.
I bow to no one!
I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped - I am saluted.
I am loved - I am revered.
I am respected-and I am feared.
I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years.
I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appomattox.
I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy, Guam, Okinawa.
The people of Korea, Vietnam and Kuwait know me as a banner of freedom.
I was there.
I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired, but my soldiers cheered me
And I was proud.
I have been burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free. It does not hurt, for I am invincible.
I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours. But my finest hours are yet to come. When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield, When I am flown at half-mast to honor my countryman, when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent at the grave of their fallen son or daughter, or in the arms of a child or spouse who will have to go on without one who gave their life in a national disaster to save the life of another, as so many did at the Pentagon or the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11/01.
MY NAME IS OLD GLORY, LONG MAY I WAVE.
[Editors Comments] I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
America cannot say honor, truth and justice. I know she still claims to stand for these principles but America is hypocritical.
America also proclaims. In God We Trust but this statement is a farce/disgrace.
The flag says, I am arrogant. I am proud. America is a Nation without the fear of God. America and her government and her churches have left the God of the Bible and have turned to the god of consumerism and emotionalism.
Prov 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Prov 18:11-12 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
America says; I bow to no one, but one day soon she WILL BOW and so will her people.
The tragedy of Sept 11th is a prelude of what is to befall America in the NEAR future.
Rev 18:10-11 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
NO-I am not touched in the head. Read my article, Mystery Babylon parts 1 & 2 and Mystery Babylon conclusion. Go to Bible Studies and then click on Revelation.
You will see-THESE ARTICLES MAKE SENSE.
America is a nation of fornicators; She is a Sodom of immorality. She is a nation proudly doing that which is unseemly. Men leaving the natural use of the woman, and the woman leaving the natural use of the man and burning in their lust one toward another. (Rom 1:27) America is a baby killer. The womb of a woman is the most dangerous environment for an infant in the whole universe. The #1 killer of infants takes place INSIDE the WOMB.
America is a nation of harlots. She is a nation of adultery and incest and idolatry and drunkenness and drug addicts. She is a nation without truth and honor. America is drawing her last breath as a great nation.
America, that great city/nation/country is about to fall. She has turned to other gods.
America has turned to the gods of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble. She has turned to the gods of merchandising of cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. The richest nation on earth that is clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls (Rev 18:12-16) is about to fall.
Americas churches are preaching another gospel. (Gal 1:8-9; 1 Cor 11:4) CHRISTIANITY has been replaced by DENOMINATIONALISM.
The Christian Church has become a whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones. (Matt 23:27)
The Shepherds have been replaced for the most part by Pharisees, and the wolves outnumber the Sheep.
Read my article God Bless America; for how long? in the December 1996 CNV Newsletter
Yes, I am glad that I am living in America. I am 63 years old and have not suffered the consequences of war. My children have not known a devastating war, and I pray that my grandchildren will not. But how long can these blessing go on?
New York City was a wakeup call. If THIS happens to America whom the Lord is continuing to bless because we are STILL allied with the Nation Israel; what, pray tell, will happen to us if the Lord should withdraw his blessings. And withdraw them HE WILL if we EVER turn our backs on Israel.
See, ALL of Gods promises concerning Israel WILL happen. The CHURCH is not ISRAEL. When the times of the Gentiles have been fulfilled (Luke 21:24; Rom 11:25-26) the Lord will again turn to Israel, and He will KEEP THOSE PROMISES He made to them so long ago.
Folks, I am sad. Let us pray for the LIVING and let the dead bury their dead. It is too late for them/the dead now. Let us pray for the survivors, that Christs labors may lead them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
One last note folks. Revelation was written to be understood. It is a Holy Spirit inspired REVELATION of what is to be/happen. Read MY understanding of Revelation and tell me what you think.
LOOK UP, the DAY is drawing near.
Even so; Come Lord Jesus
Ive been thinking. Ive been thinking thoughts.
We hear on the news that maybe we should be inoculated against smallpox and anthrax in case of chemical terrorism.
Ive been listening to news commentaries and reading Gods Word and thinking thoughts.
The thoughts that come to mind is that the solution is not to be found in the news commentaries, but in Gods Holy Word.
The conclusion of the thoughts I have been thinking is that folks SHOULD BE INOCULATED.
I have been inoculated against the VERY CAUSE of all the worlds unrest from day one, and DAY ONE is NOT 9/11/2001. (Gen 3:1-6) I have been inoculated against the DEADLIEST and the VERY FIRST disease ever know to man in the whole universe AND heaven.
JESUS CHRIST the GREAT PHYSICIAN has inoculated me with the serum of HIS OWN BLOOD, against SIN.
Folks, we, as Christians, have this serum, and the Doctor, the Lord Jesus Christ, has authorized us his servants to dispense this valuable and LIFE SAVING serum to mankind FREE, as the LORD PROVIDES.
Some will take the vaccination and most will refuse, but then WE will not have THEIR BLOOD on OUR HANDS. (Eze 3:17-21)
Most of you know that I have been WARNING over the years since my salvation in Jesus Christ in 1991. Most of you know that I have been PREACHING the CHRISTIAN WALK, and REPENTANCE before God and FAITH towards the Lord Jesus Christ in my writings, but I have been SLACK in PERSONAL EVANGELISM.
Christ gave us Christians commandments before He went to sit at His Fathers Right Hand. Some emphasize on personal evangelism. Very few heed, or preach; WARN. (Acts 20:28-31) Some, including myself, preach the Christian Walk, (Rom 8:1; Gal 5:25) and obedience to God. (1 John 5:3)
I KNOW what God wants me to do. I can SEE it. The First Monday Trade Days have been a training ground for personal evangelism even though I have done SOME door-to-door evangelism here in Hico around two years ago.
For over two years now I have been thinking thoughts about preaching at the park one evening a week. There are seven surrounding communities where I could do this, and I though I needed a pulpit and a PA system, but Weatherford proved me wrong. It was there at Weatherford Trade Days that I learned to stand and lean on my walker and sit whenever I got tired. (my walker has a cart in the front and a seat in between the handlebars at the rear) It was there at Weatherford that I learned to speak loud enough so that those in the rear could clearly hear me.
The Holy Spirit of God trained me and equipped me. I now have no excuse. I must practice what I preach.
All I have left to do is pray for boldness. (Acts 4:29)
It DOES take a certain boldness to go out uninvited to people houses to witness the Lord Jesus Christ. Preaching to folks that have gathered to hear the Word is much easier, but the open air preaching and witnessing at Weatherford has been good for me and my wife Nita.
Thanks for all the prayer letters I have received. You keep on keeping on in your area, and I will do what I can in mine.
In Jesus Christ
Nation Called To Prayer
We hear about people of DIVERSE FAITHS coming together in prayer for America, but I dont fall for that.
A synonym for diverse is DIFFERENT, and things that are different are not the same. MOST of the prayers offered because of the New York tragedy are in vain. How bout that?
A news article I read talks of a woman who, knelt in the dead of Saturday night after the tragedy, after sleeping and waking again, and "I guess what I did was ... pray?" Pray with a question mark, because it's a foreign tongue. The idea of prayer had never occurred to her until she saw that man on TV jump from the top floors of the World Trade Center.
It came as a reflex -- "Oh God," she'd said, watching his white shirt billow. Days and dozens of mental replays later she doesn't have a much better script, but still she kneels. "Dear God? Someone?" she asks in that rising tempo once reserved for less profound questions, about a date or a boss or whether to stop at Starbucks. "You here?"
After the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, many people are asking the same question. It's not just that the faithful are flocking to houses of worship -- it's that people who've never been and still won't go, who passed all those candlelight vigils last week and kept on walking, are finding themselves praying.
Folks, THIS KIND of praying is to God as filthy rags. (Isa 64:6). Why? BECAUSE;
John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name (Jesus Christ), I will do it.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name (Jesus Christ), he may give it you.
Before someone comes to conclude that he can say the magic words, Jesus Christ, and then he can get his way with God; REMEMBER we must read the Scripture and let it interpret itself.
WHAT ELSE does the Bible have to say about praying for something? Lets see.
John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, (of the Bible) and doeth his will, him he heareth.
I Jn 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
All right now. It is CLEAR. Se must pray/ask in JESUS NAME according to GODS WILL.
So, what good does praying with those of diverse/different faith do? NOTHING. This sort of practice makes a mockery of my God and my Lord, Jesus, the Christ.
Folks, we have IMPOSTERS among us calling themselves children of OUR Father. Hey- they aint no kin of MINE.
The world and its religions want to unite in peace, and Gods Words DOES speak of unity in peace but it clearly describes the sort of uniting we, as Christians, should go about.
Eph 4:3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
This is the Holy Spirit of the ONE TRUE GOD and not a diversity of spirits.
Eph 4:4-5 There is ONE body, and ONE Spirit, even as ye are called in ONE hope of your calling; ONE Lord, ONE FAITH, ONE baptism.
ONE is not a definition of DIVERSE.
Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
ONE God and ONE Father of those who come to REPENTANCE toward God and FAITH towards the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21)
Sothese folks can pray and donate ONE BILLION DOLLARS (Fox News) for whatever reason and their prayer and donations are as filthy rays. One billion dollars! Folks, thats a LOT of dirty laundry/hearts.
Reminds me. I got to go. Mr. Mom has laundry to do
Hang in there. Things are LOOKING UP. Jesus is coming soon.
We Must Earnestly Contend For The Faith-Jude 1:3
