Anyone who thinks that political action and a Republican majority is going to do anything, better think again. It was House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-KS) who supported NAFTA and the World Trade Organization. It was Gingrich, Rep. Richard Armey (R-TX), and Rep. Richard Leach (R- IA), who voted for HR666, which would allow for our homes to be entered and searched without a warrant. One of the principle tenets of the Bible, is that we are to put our faith in God- not man.
There is a segment of Christians who believe that with enough political action, they can bring this nation back to God, so it will be ready when Jesus returns. The Bible is crystal clear in regard to the last days. To believe that you can "take America back" is like saying that you don't believe what the Bible says. This nation, and this world, is on a collision course. Nothing is going to change that. Well, how about prayer, you may ask; can't we put it off, can't we delay it. It's been done. When the Illuminati made their first attempt toward world domination at the Congress of Vienna, Russia, then a Christian nation, prevented it. When the Illuminati made their second attempt with the League of Nations, the people of the United States, then a Christian nation, wouldn't accept it. But now, things are different. Now, the die has been cast. I believe, that when Israel became a nation, it was the beginning of the end. At that time, the sands began to slowly fall through the hourglass. And indeed, since then, there has been an accelerated effort towards one-world government. When Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, he said, "...if it is possible, let this cup pass from me," but in the end, he knew what God's plan was, and that it would be carried out. And that is where we are at right now. Christians know what is going to happen, and now they are praying for this cup to pass from them, by doing everything they can to turn this nation back to God.
Sure, I'm giving my interpretation. There are others who have their own slant. That is why you need to find out for yourself. That is what I did. That's how I got involved in all of this, because I wasn't going to accept what someone else said. This book contains an extraordinary amount of information, in order to bolster my contentions, and if you don't agree with it, or have some doubts; then you need to get on your knees, and get into the word of God, and seek answers and confirmation that will satisfy you.
So, what can we as Christians do? We can continue doing what we were ordained to do with the Great Commission. Christ told his disciples to go forth "and teach all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20)." We must not lose sight of this mission, because it is a key that will unlock the kingdom.
"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." [Matthew 24:14]
With the advent of modern technology, the Bible has been printed in every major language; and his Word is beamed via satellite to the four corners of the Earth. Where this technology is not available, missionaries have carried the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to these remote areas. By his very word, the end will not come until this Great Commission has been fulfilled according to the expectations of God. Instead of winning votes for some politician, you should be winning souls for Jesus.
Time is getting short. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled everyday, and there is no doubt that we are living in the last days. As is usually the case, people don't think about God until there is some sort of crisis. When the time of the Tribulation comes closer, and things become more apparent, I think that revival is going to sweep this land. It may be the last chance that people will have to come to the Lord; and as Christians, that is where our duty lies.
You may not be a Christian, and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Well, you need to look at yourself, and see what you're missing. You've heard the saying that 'money isn't everything, but it's way ahead of whatever's in second place.' The same can be said about salvation, but the difference here, is that Jesus is everything. Now, I am not a preacher, and I don't make any claims regarding the authority of my words. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and my theology is based on the truth contained therein. Through his Word, God is giving everyone a chance to come to him. You see, the Bible is a very unique book, because it is the complete story of mankind, from the beginning, till the end. It tells you how to become a Christian, and what will happen if you don't. There are no ifs, ands, or buts; there's no two ways about it, if you don't heed the warning, you will be sentenced to eternal damnation in the fiery pit of Hell. Jesus is coming back to rule and reign forever, and unless you are a Christian, unless your faith is in him, and unless you love the Lord, he will have no part of you.
Read the following Bible passages regarding Salvation:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." [John 3:16]
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." [Mark 16:16]
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." [Romans 3:23]
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." [Romans 6:23]
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus Christ, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." [Romans 10:9-10]
"...Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved and thy house." [Acts 16:30-31]
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." [Ephesians 2:8-9]
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." [1 John 1:9]
"Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." [Isaiah 55:7]
"I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." [Luke 13:3]
"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord..." [Acts 3:19]
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." [Matthew 5:16]
"For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels." [Luke 9:24-26]
If you are not born again, if you don't know Jesus as your personal saviour, you can not afford to turn your back. God sent his only son to this world to die for their sins, and yours. What an incredible sacrifice. What an incredible amount of love for mankind, and all he asks from you in return, is for you to follow him, and to serve him; and not to be a follower of the world. He is standing there with open arms to welcome you into the fold. Don't turn away. Won't you come today, right now. You may be having problems in your personal life, God hears and answers prayers. No problem is too big or too small to bring before the Lord. If you have come to the point where you don't know where to turn, know this: Prayer changes things, and it can change you.
You can pray, right now, right where you are. Just get down on your knees, and even if you think you don't know how to pray, the Lord knows your heart. You can talk to him, just like you would talk to your friend, because he is your friend, and friend that will never leave you, nor forsake you. If you need some help, here is an example:
"Dear Father, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus Christ, your Son, died on the cross for my sins, then rose from the dead so that I may have everlasting life. I repent of my sins and invite Jesus into my heart, and into my life. Cleanse me and make me whole with your blood. I pray for your guidance on my life, and for you to reveal yourself to me through the Bible, your living Word. In Jesus' precious name I pray, Amen."
If you prayed this prayer with all your heart and soul, you have just been taken out of the grasp of Satan and this world, because you are now a child of God. Now, you are walking with the King. As a new Christian, you need to cultivate your relationship with Jesus, and to further develop your walk with the Lord; and nobody expects you to do it on your own. You have taken the first step, which is the most important step. You need to get a Bible and start reading it, and you need the spiritual guidance that can only be achieved through the regular attendance of a Spirit-filled, Bible-believing Church. There, your spiritual life can be nurtured through fellowship with other Christians who can help you.
