Good for North Dakota! Love North Dakota! Great people, worked in radio there in the early 80’s in Williston at KEYZ/KYYZ Radio! Where is Congress? Where is New Mexico? Where is my home state of Minnesota?
This has been coming for years, America leaving God out results in chaos and hell on earth!
When you look at the pictures from FOX NEWS, it is so very tragic……….armed troops inside our Capitol, preparing for the worst. Looking at the pictures in the FOX NEWS report and they are also all over twitter made me very sad for our Country and our children and fire generations. This is not Iran or Syria! This is América!
Pastor Leonard Navarre in Lubbock, Texas texted this to me just as I was writing this post………
Satan is having his way with many in America, so many are off the track and blinded by Satan, walking in such evil and darkness, many do not even know it!
Why is the World full of evil?
“So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts” Eph 4: 17, 18.
The Scriptures call the mind of the natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4, “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim. 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan and can never please God because it concentrates on things of the world and not things of the Spirit. The natural mind walks the road of hopelessness and self-destruction.

House Democrats voted last night to call for President Trump’s removal from office through the 25th Amendment. Vice President Pence declined to act on their request, stating that the amendment was intended to address medical emergencies or presidential incapacity and that using it as a means of punishment would set a “terrible precedent.”
In response, the House is set to vote this morning on a resolution to impeach the president.
Currently, 82 percent of Democrats support impeaching Mr. Trump, joined by 47 percent of independents and 15 percent of Republicans. In a radio interview yesterday, I was asked, “Do you believe the president should be removed from office?” This question is on millions of minds across our country today.
My purpose in this article is not to offer personal opinion or political or legal commentary. My nonpartisan mission as a cultural apologist is to help people think biblically about contemporary issues so they can use their influence to shape the culture for Christ.
In that context, let’s look at biblical principles that speak to the issue at hand.
Biblical arguments for removal
The Bible speaks at great length about the priority and practice of accountability. These principles are related to the impeachment issue to the degree that President Trump was complicit in the January 6 riots. Let’s consider two especially relevant examples.
One: Presidents and all people are accountable before God and others.
The Bible teaches that “each of us will give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12; cf. 2 Corinthians 5:10, Hebrews 4:13). Jesus was clear: “On the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak” (Matthew 12:36). When people sin against us, we are to hold them accountable (Matthew 18:15–17). Leaders are clearly accountable for their actions (1 Timothy 4:12; Hebrews 13:17; Luke 16:10–12; James 3:1).
Two: Accountability is vital to society.
After condemning sexual immorality between a man and “his father’s wife” (1 Corinthians 5:1), Paul instructed the church to remove the man from their fellowship (v. 2). Then he warned: “Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump” (vv. 6–7). We must hold people accountable for their sake and to prevent the escalation of sin and its consequences (see 2 Samuel 12:1–14; Luke 17:3; Galatians 6:1–5; James 5:16).
Ethicist Russell Moore is right: “The governing authorities do not have a choice as to whether or not to hold people accountable for inciting and carrying out insurrection. To do otherwise would be to cease to be a just society, and to empower future evildoers to do the same. Everyone who attacked our Capitol or planned or directed such a storming of the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
Biblical arguments against removal
Two biblical arguments could perhaps be made for refusing to remove the president before his term ends next week.
One: We are to work for peace.
Jesus taught, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God” (Matthew 5:9). Paul taught, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all” (Romans 12:18). Seventy-four million Americans voted for President Trump, the largest number for an incumbent in history. Will some percentage feel that their vote was overturned by Democrats? Will such an action only exacerbate the partisan tensions in our country after the president leaves office?
Two: We should keep the greater good in mind.
Jesus asked, “Which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?” (Luke 14:28). It could be argued that removing President Trump from office a few days before his term ends will distract Congress and the country from issues such as the pandemic, the economy, China, Russia, and the other grave challenges we face. For example, President-elect Biden is concerned that impeachment might keep the Senate from moving forward with his cabinet nominees and larger agenda.
A redemptive path forward
This verse balances the two: “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). How can we help our leaders and nation do both?
The fact that this imperative is obvious makes it no less relevant. We are taught to pray for wisdom (James 1:5), forgiveness (1 John 1:9), and healing for our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Jesus was blunt: “Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).
Second, speak and act redemptively.
Whatever your position on impeachment, take the long view. What happens over the next week is urgent, but what happens because of the next week is vital as well. What we say and do reflects directly on our Lord (Acts 1:8). Seek ways to honor him and draw others to him (John 3:30).
Third, trust your King.
Our highest trust was never to be in a president, whatever his party or political positions. Scripture is clear: “Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation” (Psalm 146:3). Instead, trust first and foremost in the One “who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry” (v. 7a).
The psalmist continues: “The Lord sets the prisoners free; the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin” (vv. 7b–9).
Will you trust him for the justice, provision, freedom, healing, encouragement, love, care, protection, and righteousness we need?
Will you pray, speak, and act in ways that lead those you influence to do the same?
NOTE: In these difficult and divisive days, many are concerned about holding our leaders and each other accountable for justice and righteousness. What does the Bible say about accountability? Watch our latest video below.

THE WRATH OF GOD IS UPON AMERICA!!!
REPENT AMERICA!!! REPENT CHURCH!!! REPENT PEOPLE OF GOD!!!!!!!
The Wrath of God is not the favorite subject to preach on for many Pastors in America.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
My Daddy always told me to look into the mirror when trouble came, and ask myself if I am doing my best! Many Americans need to do this now! I expect myself to be a man of God always and follow God and not the popular culture of many Churches and society. I have always been one to go against the grain and we said in the day, I try not to blame others, I try to follow God in all ways and talk to Him constantly as to what He wants me to do in this time. Some may say I am hard on Pastors and the Church, if so, I am a Pastor, husband, dad, grandpa, I report the news daily for God’s Glory Alone, I expect much from myself
I was talking to man of God John Belew this week about what is taking place right before our eyes, ‘the wrath of God’. Many Americans and many around the globe to dot recognize it as such. It is not a ‘popular subject’ of today’s Church. Today’s Church as a whole, thank God for those that are solid in preaching the Full Gospel, does not preach Hell, Satan, Against abortion, the killing of God’s babies, Demons, I can only imagine everyday how this makes God feel! A friend said to me long ago, “If I was God I would have thrown us all away a long time ago.” Many Pastors put the salt on the shelf and replaced it with the candy jar. Many have not carried out the Great Commission. I always say “put a mask on and get out on the streets!” Sharon and I were talking about Mother Teresa months ago when COVID broke out, and thinking of her treating the lepers’ in the black hole of Calcutta. She did not have Facebook live or zoom, she went for God. Here at FGGAM we still hit the streets the best we can to minister, to carry out the Great Commission. The Church as a whole, loves to preach to the choir. The world will not change until the Church does what it is commanded to do by Jesus. Carry our the GREAT COMMISSION.
Also find the SALT!
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
The Wrath of God has been present for years in America, many are blinded by it, made it political, put politics before God and made it their god.
I have warned for years that many Pastors put the salt on the shelf and replaced it with the candy jar.
Written by Darlene Quiring
Notice these 4 reason that are given for the wrath of God. Romans 1:18-32
I. V. 18 MAN’S REBELLION TOWARD GOD
A. THE NATURE OF MAN’S SIN – MAN IS UNGODLY BY NATURE AND BY CHOICE. THIS MEANS THAT HE HAS NO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. BECAUSE HE HAS NO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS FELLOW MAN IS ALSO DESTROYED. MAN IS IN OPEN REBELLION AGAINST THE LORD AND THIS IS BY HIS OWN CHOICE! (ILL. THIS IS PROVEN BY VERSES LIKE ROM. 3:10; 12.)
B. THE SUPPRESSING NATURE OF MAN – ANOTHER SIGN OF MAN’S REBELLION IS THE FACT THAT HE KNOWS THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD. THIS WILL BE REVEALED MORE CLEARLY IN A MOMENT. EVEN THOUGH HE KNOWS THE TRUTH, HE “HOLDS”, OR “SUPPRESSES” THE TRUTH.
C. THE STUBBORN NATURE OF MAN – MAN WILLFULLY SUPPRESSES THE TRUTH OF GOD SO THAT HE MAY CONTINUE IN HIS SINS! MANKIND IS ABSOLUTELY ENSLAVED TO HIS SIN, EPH. 2:1-3! BEYOND THAT, MAN STUBBORNLY HOLDS TO HIS SINS WHILE HE SEEKS TO UNDERMINE THE TRUTH OF GOD.
I. Man’s Rebellion Toward God
II. V. 19-20 MAN’S REVELATION OF GOD
(Ill. What is this truth that man suppresses? It is the very revelation of God Himself. You see, God has a strong desire to reveal Himself to men! God wants them to come to know about Him so that they will come to know Him personally. To do this, God manifests Himself to man in millions of ways every day. Let’s notice some of them tonight.)
A. THE PLACE OF GOD’S REVELATION – NOTICE WHERE PAUL SAYS THAT GOD IS REVEALED – “IN THEM“. THE IDEA IS THAT MEN HAVE ALL THE TRUTH THEY NEED TO COME TO KNOW GOD WITHIN THEMSELVES. THE TRUTH OF GOD IS IN THE HEART AND IN THE MIND OF MANKIND!
(ILL. AS A VERY YOUNG GIRL, HELEN KELLER WAS STRICKEN BY A DISEASE THAT LEFT HER BLIND, DEAF AND MUTE. A LADY NAMED ANNE SULLIVAN WORKED TIRELESSLY AND SELFLESSLY TO HELP HELEN LEARN TO COMMUNICATE. EVENTUALLY, HELEN LEARNED TO COMMUNICATE THROUGH TOUCH, AND SHE EVEN LEARNED TO TALK! WHEN ANNE SULLIVAN TRIED TO TELL HELEN KELLER ABOUT GOD, THE GIRL’S RESPONSE WAS THAT SHE ALREADY KNEW ABOUT HIM – SHE JUST DIDN’T KNOW HIS NAME.)
ALL THIS TEACHES US THAT EVEN WITHOUT A BIBLE, MAN CAN COME TO KNOW ABOUT GOD! I PRAISE THE LORD FOR THIS TRUTH ABOUT GOD! HIS DESIRE TO REACH MAN RUNS SO DEEP THAT HE PLACES THE REVELATION OF HIMSELF WITHIN THE VERY CREATURES THAT HAVE TURNED THEIR BACKS ON HIM! WHAT A LORD!
B. THE POWER OF GOD’S REVELATION – THE POWER OF GOD’S REVELATION OF HIMSELF LIES IN ITS SCOPE! GOD HAS PLACED HIS TRUTH ALL ABOUT US. THE BIBLE BACKS THIS UP – PSA. 19:1-6. GOD’S REVELATION OF HIMSELF IS SO STRONG AND SO CLEAR THAT EVERY RATIONAL CREATURE ARE BOUND TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND WORSHIP HIM! (ILL. THE PRODIGAL SON – LUKE 15:17)
(Ill. Notice several areas where God’s Person is on display!
1. THINK OF THE SEED THAT BECOMES A MIGHTY TREE.
2. THINK OF BIRDS THAT ARE ABLE TO NAVIGATE BY THE STARS. EVEN WHEN THEY ARE RAISED IN A WINDOWLESS ROOM AND SHOWN AN ARTIFICIAL SKY, THEY ARE ABLE TO TURN THEMSELVES IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
3. THINK THAT THERE ARE GIANT TELESCOPES THAT CAN VIEW OBJECTS THAT ARE OVER 4 BILLION LIGHT YEARS AWAY. THAT IS A DISTANCE OF 25 MILLION SEPTILLION MILES.
4. THINK THAT MOST SCIENTISTS NOW BELIEVE THAT THIS MASSIVE UNIVERSE CAME INTO EXISTENCE AT A SPECIFIC INSTANCE IN TIME. DID YOU KNOW THAT AMONG MAJOR SCIENTISTS EVOLUTION IS VERY MUCH OUT OF VOGUE? MANY NOW SUSPECT THAT A HIGHER INTELLIGENCE HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT.
5. THINK THAT AT ANY GIVEN INSTANT THERE ARE OVER 1,800 STORMS IN OPERATION AT ANY GIVEN TIME. THE ENERGY NEEDED TO CREATE AND SUSTAIN THOSE STORMS AMOUNTS TO THE INCREDIBLE FIGURE OF 1,300,000,000 HORSEPOWER!
6. THINK THAT THERE ARE OVER 10 MILLION SPECIES OF INSECTS IN THE WORLD.
7. THINK THAT THE EARTH IS 25,000 MILES IN CIRCUMFERENCE, WEIGHS 6 SEPTILLION, 588 SEXTILLION TONS AND HANGS ON NOTHING! IT SPINS AT 1,000 MILES PER HOUR WITH ABSOLUTE PRECISION AND CAREENS THROUGH SPACE AROUND THE SUN AT THE SPEED OF 1,000 MILES PER MINUTE IN A YEARLY ORBIT THAT IS 580 BILLION MILES LONG!
8. THINK THAT THE HEAD OF A COMET CAN BE FROM 10,000 TO 1,000,000 MILES LONG AND TRAVEL AT A SPEED OF 350 MILES PER SECOND.
9. THINK THAT THE SUN’S RADIATED ENERGY COULD BE CONVERTED INTO HORSEPOWER IT WOULD BE EQUIVALENT TO 500 MILLION, MILLION, BILLION HORSEPOWER. EACH SECOND IT CONSUMES ABOUT 4 MILLION TONS OF MATTER.
10. THINK THAT LIKE FROM THE SUN TRAVELS AT 186,281 MILES PER SECOND. AT THIS RATE, IT WOULD TAKE LIGHT 125,000 YEARS JUST TO TRAVEL ACROSS OUR GALAXY, AND THE MILKY WAY IS JUST ONE GALAXY AMONG BILLIONS IN THE UNIVERSE.
NOW, IMAGINE THAT ALL OF THIS JUST HAPPENED! NO WAY! GOD DID ALL THESE THINGS TO PROVE TO MAN THAT HE IS REAL AND THAT HE POSSESSES GREAT POWER! NO WONDER THAT BIBLE DECLARES, “THE FOOL HATH SAID IN HIS HEART, THERE IS NO GOD.”
C. THE PURPOSE OF GOD’S REVELATION – THE PURPOSE IS TO FORCE MAN TO A MOMENT OF DECISION! GOD’S DESIRE IS THAT EVERY PERSON BOW BEFORE HIM IN HUMBLE REPENTANCE AND WORSHIP. HOWEVER, NOT ALL WILL! THEREFORE, GOD HAS GIVEN MAN EVERY CONCEIVABLE REVELATION OF HIMSELF AND HAS LEFT THOSE WHO REFUSE TO GET RIGHT WITH GOD WITHOUT ANY EXCUSE FOR THEIR CONTINUED STATE OF SIN!
(ILL. THE UNIVERSE IN THE LORD’S COURTROOM. IN IT, HE HAS PROVEN CONCLUSIVELY THAT HE EXISTS. THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BELIEVE IN HIM HAVE BEEN FACED WITH THE EVIDENCE AND ARE LEFT WITH NO EXCUSE FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR. THEY ARE GUILTY AS CHARGED AND WHEN THEY FACE JESUS AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE, THEY WILL HEAR THE CHARGES READ IN CLEAR TERMS. THEY WILL ALL BE FORCED TO BOW BEFORE HIM AND ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS LORD OF ALL!)
I. Man’s Rebellion Toward God
II. Man’s Revelation Of God
III. V. 21 MAN’S REJECTION OF GOD
A. A RECKLESS CHOICE – WHEN MAN HAS BEEN FACED WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD AND HE MAKES HIS STAND AGAINST GOD, HE HAS MOVED INTO THE REALM OF REJECTION. THIS REJECTION OF GOD IS SEEN IN 2 AREAS OF LIFE.
1. THEY GAVE GOD NO GLORY – THAT IS, THEY REFUSED TO MAGNIFY AND EXALT GOD AS GOD. THEIR PRIMARY GOAL WAS THE GLORIFICATION OF SELF! MEN FAIL TO HONOR GOD WHEN THEY REFUSE TO GIVE HIM THE PLACE IN THEIR LIVES THAT HE DESERVES. GOD DESERVES THE FIRST PLACE, BUT THOSE WHO WALK IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND OPEN REBELLION AGAINST THE LORD GIVE HIM NO PLACE IN THEIR LIVES. THEREFORE, HE IS NOT GLORIFIED IN THEM! AS A RESULT, HE IS FILLED WITH WRATH AT THE FOOLISHNESS AND SINFULNESS OF MAN!
2. THEY GAVE GOD NO GRATITUDE – WHILE THEY DENIED GOD, THEY TOOK ALL THE THINGS THAT HE HAD GIVEN MAN TO TEACH MAN ABOUT HIMSELF AND THEY USED IT FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH GAINS WITHOUT A SINGLE THOUGHT BEING GIVEN TO THE GREAT CREATOR
B. THE RESULTING CONDITION – BECAUSE THEY REJECTED THE LORD AND HIS TRUTH, THEY WERE GIVEN OVER TO WRETCHED LIVES. NOTE WHAT THE REST OF THIS VERSE SAYS ABOUT THEIR CONDITION.
1. THEIRS IS A HOLLOW LIFE – “VAIN IMAGINATIONS” MEANS A FUTILE EXISTENCE. THEY ARE LIVING FOR THEMSELVES, OR SO THEY THINK, IN REALITY, THEY ARE MERELY WASTING THEIR TIME. THEY FILL THEIR DAYS WITH THEMSELVES, BUT EVENTUALLY, THOSE DAYS WILL END AND THEY WILL FIND THAT THEIR TIME HAS BEEN WASTED AND ENTIRELY IN VAIN!
(ILL. WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF A MAN ACCOMPLISHES GREAT THINGS IN THIS LIFE AND IN THE END GOES TO HELL? THE ANSWER IS, IT MEANS THAT HE HAS WASTED HIS LIFE AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER FOR HIM HAD HE NEVER BEEN BORN IN THE FIRST PLACE! IF HE DIES WITHOUT JESUS, HE HAS LOST THE ONLY THING HE GENUINELY POSSESSED. HE HAS LOST HIS SOUL – MARK 8:36-37.)
2. THEIRS IS A HORRIBLE LIFE – THIS VERSES SAYS THAT WHEN THEY TURNED THEIR BACKS ON THE LIGHT OF GOD’S TRUTH, “THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKENED.” WHAT MEN SEEM NOT TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO LIGHT IS DARKNESS! AS THEY MOVE FARTHER AWAY FROM THE LIGHT, THEY MOVE FARTHER INTO THE DARK!
(ILL. THIS IS WHY I SAY THEIR LIFE IS A HORRIBLE LIFE. IT IS BAD TO THINK OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANYONE GOING TO HELL WITHOUT GOD. BUT, ADD TO THAT A LIFE SPENT IN THIS CRUEL WORLD WITHOUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LOVING, HEAVENLY FATHER! THAT IS A HORRIBLE LIFE! TO LIFE ALL THOSE YEARS TRAPPED IN A DARK DUNGEON OF YOUR OWN MAKING. LIVING THERE, THINKING YOU ARE HAPPY AND WHOLE AND ALL THE WHILE THE CANCER OF SIN IS DESTROYING YOU FROM WITHIN. THEN, WHEN IT IS TOO LATE TO REALIZE THAT ALL THE WHILE YOU COULD HAVE HAD A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND THEN WENT TO HIS HEAVEN AND SPENT ETERNITY THERE WITH HIM. THAT IS A HORROR BEYOND WORDS!)
IV. V. 22-23 MAN’S REACTION TO GOD
A. V. 22 HE REACTS IN FOOLISH REGRESSION – WHEN MAN TURNS ON THE LORD, AND CLOSES HIS EYES TO THE TRUTH OF GOD, HE REALLY THINKS HE IS WISE! HIS PERCEPTION OF HIMSELF IS THAT HE HAS ALL THE ANGELS FIGURED OUT AND ALL THE BASES COVERED. IN REALITY, GOD SAYS THAT WHILE THEY THINK THEY ARE SO SMART, THEY ARE NOTHING BUT FOOLS!
(ILL. SINNERS HAVE IT ALL BACKWARDS! LOOK AT 1 COR. 1:25-31. TO THE WORLD’S EYES THE CHRISTIAN IS THE BIGGEST FOOL IN EXISTENCE! HE MISSES OUT ON ALL THE PLEASURES OF THE WORLD. HE PLACES HIS FAITH IN A MAN WHO DIED 2,000 YEARS AGO, BUT LOOKS FOR HIM TO RETURN AT ANY TIME. FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVES, HOWEVER, THE WISEST DECISION ANY PERSON HAS EVER MADE IS TO PLACE THEIR FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. I WOULD RATHER BE PERCEIVED TO BE A FOOL TONIGHT THAN I HAD TO LIVE IN SIN AND PROVE THAT I AM A FOOL AT THE END OF THE ROAD.)
B. V. 23 HE REACTS IN FALSE RELIGION – YOU SEE, MAN SAYS “NO!” TO GOD, THEN HE TURNS AROUND AND INVENTS THINGS TO WORSHIP! TALK ABOUT FOOLISH! WHAT THE LORD IS TELLING US IS THAT MAN IS A RELIGIOUS CREATURE. IF HE DOESN’T WORSHIP GOD, HE WILL MANUFACTURE A GOD TO WORSHIP. IF THAT DOESN’T SCRATCH HIS ITCH, HE WILL FIND ANOTHER MAN TO GIVE HIS WORSHIP TO. IF THAT DOESN’T FIT THE BILL, THEN HE WILL ULTIMATELY SET HIMSELF UP AS HIS OWN LITTLE GOD AND WILL LIVE HIS LIFE ONLY TO WORSHIP AND GLORIFY HIMSELF.
(ILL. THAT’S WHAT A MAN DOES WHEN HE IS LEFT TO HIMSELF! HOWEVER, NOTICE IF YOU WILL THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL: MAN, BIRDS, ANIMALS AND REPTILES. IT IS JUST THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE ABOUT EVOLUTION. NOTICE THAT WHEN MAN STEPS AWAY FROM GOD HE DOESN’T EVOLVE, HE DEVOLVES. HE DOESN’T PROGRESS UPWARD, HE REGRESSES DOWNWARD. ALL OF THIS TENDS TO PROVE THE POINT THAT A LIFE WITHOUT GOD IS A LIFE THAT IS ON A DOWNWARD PATHWAY! WALKING AWAY FROM GOD DOESN’T PROVE THAT YOU ARE WISE, IT MERELY PROVES THAT YOU ARE A FOOL, AND IT PROVES THAT YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO BE A DISASTER AND YOUR ETERNITY A FAILURE. IT IS A SAD SHAPE TO BE IN!)
These are the four reasons why God is angry with sinners! If you ask me, a holy and righteous God has plenty of reason to be filled with wrath.
A Call to Repentance By Charles Stanley
Repentance is a concept that isn’t talked about enough in some churches today. Yet it was a key point in what Jesus preached and something He specifically instructed the church to proclaim everywhere (Matt. 4:17; Luke 24:47).
Repentance is prompted by the Holy Spirit: He brings conviction concerning sin so that we’re encouraged to depend on Jesus’ righteousness. When we commit to repent—that is, to turn from sin and toward God—the Spirit supplies the power for us to do so. He transforms the inner person and gives new desires for holiness and obedience.
While salvation involves an understanding of sin and a choice to repent, some people mistakenly think they themselves must clean up their life before coming to Christ. But that is actually impossible. No one can make himself righteous apart from the work of the Holy Spirit—only God can give a clean heart, holy desires, and a transformed mind.
For unbelievers, that false assumption can seem an insurmountable obstacle to salvation. That’s why God’s children must know the truth about repentance and share it, clearing the way for lost souls to trust Christ as Savior.
Bible in One Year: Genesis 26-28
As our Country fell further into the pit of hell this past week, we must realize this fall has been happening for many years. The Church has lost its influence on much of America. Many Christians replaced God with politics and the a lot of the Church fell in love with politics, not taking a Biblical Worldview. Church attendance continues to decline in America in these pandemic days and with government health orders. Too many Pastors put the salt on the shelf and replaced it with the candy dish. America has a Spiritual Problem, Americans are so foolish in saying, “God Bless America” its almost an insult to God…He has blessed us more than any Country in the history of His creation!!, but many have turned their backs on Him. I have said this for years and years, “America!!!!! BLESS GOD!!!!
A lot of Americans have become so very foolish in think there is no wrath of God!!! Only fools think that we are not experiencing the wrath of God for killing His babies! I was thinking this morning , why would God even bless us anymore?
It is horrific that I see many do not even mention that lives were lost on this attacks by those thugs, evil people…..filled with Demons….hell on earth and we make it a political issue??? Politics, politicians do nothing for the people. Politics is killing America. America!!! You got to big for your own britches and left God and fell in love with your politics, money, possessions, greed …..EGO!!! Edging God Out!!! That is what America has done….a deep price is being paid.
Every Pastor, Church leader….EVERY CHRISTIAN has got to look in the mirror…are you really who God created you to be? Are you really doing what God intended you to do for Him? Are you to comfortable in your world?
I have come to comfort the inflicted and inflict the comfortable.
From Roger Tetro: We live in a time when Satan doesn’t even hide anymore, and people still don’t see him.
|Billy GrahamPosted: 06 Jan 2021 11:00 PM PST
Ninety-five percent of today’s church activities would continue if the Holy Spirit were removed from us. In the early Church, ninety-five percent of all her activities would have stopped if the Holy Spirit were removed.
YEARS AGO ON KKIM RADIO THE LATE, GREAT MAN OF GOD CHUCK COLSON STATED “The American Church has turned into a high school pep rally.”
TRUTH!!! Too much flash and dance not enough salt.
How many Baptisms did your Church perform in 2020?
Are you growing the Kingdom of God? Are you producing fruit for the Kingdom of God?
I was on the road yesterday! I did a double funeral yesterday with my Pastor friend Jeanie from Paradise Hills Methodist Church in Albuquerque. Pastors must keep going, reaching out to their communities more than ever and face whatever is thrown our way. Wear a mask and get to work! I made some stops and loved on people as JESUS would!!!! People need the love of JESUS!!! SHOW THE PEOPLE THE LOVE OF JESUS!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!! GO!! GO! YOU CAN OLNY DO SO MUCH ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE!!! GO!!! GO!!! GOD BE WITH YOU!! GO IN THE POWER AND LOVE OF GOD!!! TIME IS WASTING AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOULS ARE WASTING AWAY! PASTORS IT IS TIME FOR YOU GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND GO, GO, GO, GO FOR JESUS!! HIT THE STREETS AND STORES!! IT IS CALLED THE GREAT COMMISSION!!!!!
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
Much of the American Church has lost its SALT!
Look in the mirror CHURCH!
