Today, I would like to give you a bit of Scripture to think about. Let us start with the fact that you are either Gods or satan's, as is everyone, for no man, woman or child can belong to both.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon! (Matthew 6:24)
Matthew 6:24 tells us very clearly that you can not ride the fence, you can not claim to be Christ', while serving the god of this world, satan. Granted most of the men and girls in the Military are not Christians and never claimed to be, but, the Commander in Chief, George Bush the Second, has claimed to be a Christian. Yet, do his actions indicate such?
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. (Matthew 7:1&2)
In Matthew 7:1&2, we see the Lord telling us either not to judge at all or, if we are to judge, judge by the same standards that you would wish to be judged by yourself. Am I being to harsh in my judgement of the current administration and the US Military over the last 12 years? I don't think so, I would have no problem being judged as a coward if I stood by with 19 other men who were trained and armed and did absolutely nothing to stop the slaughter, but instead listened to the screams of 80 plus men women and children from pain as they were gassed and incinerated. I would have no problem being judged a communist and a liar when after taking and oath on televison to uphold and defend the Constitution of these United States, I instead defecated on it. After promising to end partial birth abortion, instead stood by and increased the funding for those who commit this horrendous crime. Not, in neither case would I have a problem being judged dishonorable.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto Me, "Lord, Lord", shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?" And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. (Matthew 7:15-27)
Now, using the above Scripture and any other you would like, being honest with no speculation, but only the truth and facts, take the space below and list the fruits of the military and the administration over the last 13 years and 5 months. Then tell yourself who they serve. For to pray for revival in this country, to pray for the president and his administration, the military and the courts, we must first know what we are praying for. I think that once you face up to how bad the last 60 plus years have been, and how with each year things have become more and more corrupt, you will see the importance of praying for our country and those we have put in positions of trust. To do that, you first must face up to what we have become.
The Lord be with you all and may you be so honest with yourself that your voice will join with mine in beseeching the Lord our God for true and plentiful revival in our country, starting with the pulpit. For the reason our nation has slide into it's current state is not on the shoulders of the corrupt office holders and the 20 men of Delta Company who stood by and watched or maybe took part in the slaughter of the Branch Davidians at Mount Carmel on April 19th, 1993, it rest squarely on the shoulders of those weak kneed cowards behind the pulpit. Let us first pray the Lord to restore our pulpits with men who fear Him, men who serve Him, men who put Him first and care not for the things of this earth. When was the last time your preacher preached hell and damnation? Has he ever painted a picture of heaven or hell? Has he ever preached salvation and the plan thereof? is he afraid of losing his 501c3 status? Revival must start in the pulpits and that will only happen when you men put your voices together and beseech the lord our God for revival and a cleansing of His church.
The Lord our God, Creator of all things, Messiah Yeshua, be with you.
