God is Faithful and keeps His Covenant.

Constant Allegiance

“O E’phra-im, what shall I do unto thee? O
Judah, what shall I do unto thee? For your
goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the
early dew is goeth away.”  Hosea 6:4.

We the people need to give continual thanks to Our Lord! The list of our blessings would be long once we begin to write and name all the fruits that our nation possesses. Wonderful things happen to us every single day. Even though we act as if we deserve all that comes to us. This itself, is an act of arrogance.

Even though the list is long, for the purpose of discussion – the following are some thoughts of what has been given to us. So much of what is ours has come about because ONLY a few people decided to make a change in society. In many situations, it happened because these roles were of a mindset of one person.

 

One area of dramatic improvement is our transportation. The common person can move from one place to another in a few hours. There is not a place on this planet which cannot be reached. In the next decade, it’s obvious this time frame will improve to even faster times. We’re all taking advantage of this process. Less than 200 years ago animals pulled wagons for commerce and travel.

It seems one of the blessings has been the road systems in the United States; and now, in the rest of the world. If it were not for roads and streets there would not be fast foods, malls, long vacations, and goods being moved from place to place. When in your car – notice the large number of various trucks going from place to place.

 

Another area that has come around is politics. In the last two decades one can see the abrupt change. Politics is more open now. Secrecy was a way of life in the past.

 

People like John & Tony Podesta, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the other liars – have been exposed as frauds and thieves.

* There is also reason to believe that they have participated in Ritual Satanic Abuse against children. *

 

* ALL mentioned in this blog are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Any assignment here is made allegedly. *

The use of the Open Records Act and the Freedom Of Information Act have exposed these sub-humans for what they really are. In the past, we knew very little about the moral affairs of our leaders.

What a great change! We should receive even more information in the near future. This is a marvelous change. We have a long way to go, but this change has been uplifting.

 

In addition to the acts set out above the increase of our food supply has been a marvelous event. We can now receive food from hundreds or thousands of miles away. Fish taken from the Bering Sea can be on my plate in less than 72 hours. The movement of fruit and vegetables, from South America to my kitchen is astounding. In fact, there are no barriers to the food supply unless it is caused by manmade barriers.

The production of food has been industrialized since now great farms are on every continent. The variation is awesome in our lives. Once food was seasonal; it is not now. We have fruit all year round.

 

There is another area which must be discussed openly that has proven to be beneficial for all of us. This is the fact of a freedom of worship. No longer can only one person, a council or select group tell you or I that we must belong to this group.

The Roman Catholics cannot dominate the Protestants and vice versa. This has not always been the way society worked. We can choose our manner of worship or not and follow a set petition to worship God. It seems that our own free will can govern what we want to do. The results of this decision may cause a disaster but it is still a free choice.

 

There are other ways which could openly be brought up but the idea has been set forth. Change has come about. Intelligent people will look at the past for what it was and the evolution of what is now. That will probably be in the future.

 

HISTORY

 

There is a serious problem with ALL of this though. Mankind has a propensity for self-destruction.

 

We are intent upon not using what is meant for good. We have been known to use our free will to do bad things. When Hosea 6:4, brings up the fundamental flow people would rather not hear the comment.

“O E’phra-im, what shall I do unto thee?
O Judah, what shall I do unto thee?
For your goodness is as a morning cloud,
And as the early dew is goeth away.”

 

In the past, prosperity was a sign of coming horrors. We run well for a season or so, and then the FALL happens.

 

This may sound negative but it is not. When mankind begins to prosper – then the fall is not too far from happening. It is as if men are doomed to eternal bad decisions. At this very minute, many in this nation have revolted against Jehovah. It is not open knowledge, but the signs are present for a passive rebellion.

Basically, the people merely say it is just best to do nothing and thus no one can blame me personally. Look at how the Church Body reacts to the issues of their time. Relief is not coming.

It is common for some people to do well for a season. Then Satan persuades these people to cling to non-functioning former members of Christ. Few can see what is happening all across America. This is true in my belief. There are more Methodists, Presbyterians, Disciples of Christ, Baptist, Roman Catholics and Lutherans who do not attend Sunday morning services in this locality than those who do.

 

This form of Christian depth is very shallow. It is a fact that Matthew 13:20, applies directly to them

“But he that received the seed into stony places,
the same is he hereth the word, and anon with joy
recieveth it.”

It is an obvious remark that James 1:24, is about.

“For he beholdeth himself and goeth his way, and
Straightway forgotteth what manner of man he was.”

 

As soon as the light of our Savior appears these people are gone. I can liken it to the following metaphor.

 

We occasionally have foggy mornings. But, as soon as the sun wraps around the clouds – the fog disappears. This is how Christ should affect us!

 

The Holy Scripture tells us to be faithful to the end. There is no place for part-time Christians. In the history of people there have been those who stood first in the word. Some have had to give up their lives for their faith. This show us an example that death, itself will not erase their faith.

God is Faithful and keeps His Covenant.

Look at what the muslims have done in the Middle East by killing Christians as a sport that these demonic animals engage themselves in. Ignorant Christians comment that it cannot happen. Yes, it can. Luke 21:36, talks how we are to act.

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may
Be accounted worthy to escape all these things That shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

 

It must have been assumed that if bigger and more costly worship is constituted, that somehow this will give spiritual thoughts to the believers. There is not a word of truth to this statement. Steel, wood, gold and silver do not add one ounce of spiritual quality to the brain and to the spirit of a Christian.

In fact, it may be a hindrance. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world was Solomon’s Temple. As soon as he died, then all hell broke loose. The kingdom divided. The people did not remain true to the laws of Moses.

 

BREAK  AWAY

There are serious repercussions when people break away from the Lord. When God has approved of fruit that he expects and He doens’t get it – we will suffer the consequences. This was told by Moses. Isaiah 5;4,5, gives God’s condemnation.

“What could have been done more to my vineyard,
that I have not done in it wherefore, when I looked
that it should bring forth wild grapes?

“And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be trodden down.”

 

In fact, the modern Church is filled with the mourning for lost Church members. It is a form of desertion. The doctrine of once in a grace – always in a grace is a lie of enormous proportion. No matter what some Calvinist preacher who denies judgment, says, we must tell others that Judgment is a natural outcome of refusing to accept the Son of God.

 

It should not matter to us but, we must say it. Those who desert Christ are condemned to hell. Like it or not!

 

This is what the scripture teaches. At no time has this writer ever said that there is only ONE church that you must attend; but what has been stated is to stay close to His Church.

When we slip away from Christ then there are several things that takes place. Here are some symptoms:

  • Mind is depressed,
  • Heart is hard,
  • Feeling calloused, and
  • Like a worthless person.

 

As a Christian my responsibility is to lift up my fellow believers. This is a power that we possess. All of us desire to be told that others have noticed us.

 

Do not tear down a believer who needs help! All of us go through paths of depression, darkness and dependency. There are no exceptions.

 

In the beginning of this blog I listed areas where we have been blessed. There was one that was not brought up. This was God sending his Son into the world for one purpose. This was the gift of eternal life for all who accept him.

 

Jesus set this out in Matthew 28:19,20.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost.”

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”

This is a blessing beyond any comparison that we can imagine. Learn to thank God for the help he gives us every second of this life.

 

CONCLUSION

1. Be vigilant.
2. Rely only on him.
3. Be active on the use of what you have.
4. Live close to the Church.

God Bless Our Republic.

KEEP THE FAITH!!

 

I WOULD BE TRUE

“I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.

I would be friend of all—the foe, the friendless;
I would be giving, and forget the gift;
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
I would look up, and laugh, and love, and lift.

I would be faithful through each passing moment;
I would be constantly in touch with God;
I would be strong to follow where He leads me;
I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod.

Who is so low that I am not his brother?
Who is so high that I’ve no path to him?
Who is so poor I may not feel his hunger?
Who is so rich I may not pity him?

Who is so hurt I may not know his heartache?
Who sings for joy my heart may never share?
Who in God’s heav’n has passed beyond my vision?
Who to hell’s depths where I may never fare?

May none, then, call on me for understanding,
May none, then, turn to me for help in pain,
And drain alone his bitter cup of sorrow,
Or find he knocks upon my heart in vain.”
