Sharpening the Iron of the Church

As For Me and My House

I wrestle with these words, but I am compelled to speak.

If a person in your community were to take a small animal, let’s say a kitten and with a pair of pliers tear this sweet little furry creature limb from limb, while it is still alive. ¬†What do you suppose would be the reaction of the community? What do you suppose the penalty would be. The outcry would be vehement and the calls for the stiffest of penalties would be demanded, and rightly so. ¬†Yet, this very act is repeated thousands of times a day in America on human babies in the name of “choice,” with no¬†repercussions.

Suppose, in your neighborhood, a person was caught with a powerful¬†vacuum¬†(24 times more powerful than a home vacuum cleaner) torturing a small bunny rabbit by attaching a sharp knife to the hose, cutting the limbs with the knife and literally sucking the body of this innocent creature apart. ¬†Of course, his perversity is enhanced by the fact that the animal is still alive while enduring this atrocity. What would be the reaction of your neighbors? Would the police be called? ¬†Would the agency which protects small animals be called in to file charges? Of course they would. Yet, every day that we live in this country thousands and thousands of human children die by this very method. And the “agency” that is supposed to protect them not only does not react to save them, but is found to be complicit in this heinous act – actually funding the equipment needed to perform this torture.

But wait, I’m not finished – what would be your reaction if someone in your community, an otherwise upstanding citizen were found to be taking tiny little puppy dogs and bending their neck forward, shoving a sharp pair of¬†scissors¬†into the base of their neck, severing the spinal cord and then with cold and calculating dispatch, the brain is sucked out of the puppy and his skull collapses as he dies? This vile act is performed on a living, cute and cuddly puppy dog. ¬†Any community would be horrified, enraged, driven to cry out for justice and yet – every day in American hospitals, doctor’s offices, and abortion clinics this is the routine. Funded by resources from our own government.

What kind of hypocrite surrounds himself with innocent children on national television like so many studio props and declares his undying commitment to guarding this precious national treasure Рour children; while at the same time holds a voting record throughout his entire political career that has protected, guarded, promoted, and funded agencies which perform such heinous acts?  Who would do such a thing?  Our President. He is currently on one hand presenting himself as the guardian of our children while with the other hand  facilitating the murder of millions of them.

What kind of government will make every effort to disarm its citizens while arming their enemies?  Who would commit themselves to take weapons out of the hands of law abiding citizens while arming murderous drug cartels? Our own government. 

What kind of men can declare their goal is to keep our homeland safe while arming the states that want to destroy us? What kind of rulers would proclaim their efforts to repair the terrible financial crisis of our economy while sending billions of dollars in aid to men bent on the death of America and our way of life? The executive and legislative branch of the United States of America.

What¬†hypocrisy states that the 2nd¬†amendment¬†doesn’t apply to today’s weapons¬†because they were invented after the constitution was crafted, but declares that the 1st¬†amendment does apply to a liberal media that is the best friend of those who would destroy our way of life, even though the television and radio were invented long after the 1st¬†amendment¬†was enacted; and in the same breath vilifies anyone who will stand upon that same amendment to proclaim values that honor righteousness and seeks to defend life? Who would do such a thing? Those who currently lead this nation would – and are.

¬†“This know, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to to parents, unthankful, unholy. ¬†Without natural affections, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.” 2 Timothy 3:1-4

I listened to our President on the¬†occasion¬†of his second¬†inauguration¬†and many high sounding words were used, but heed this warning – he may use the words of many of the great leaders of our past, but he does not use the same dictionary. He may use the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. but the same words don’t mean the same thing when they are in his mouth. I do not cast this warning toward the President and his party alone for that would not be accurate. ¬†The climate in Washington, D.C. is wholly unholy and its power needs to be broken by the mighty hand of God.

I am grieved by much I observe in our great land today, but most¬†grievously¬†wounded by the murderous spirit that prays upon our unborn. I believe that spirit is the defining spirit of a generation.¬† It will be the¬†epitaph¬†of modern America, written clearly upon our national tomb stone. It is clear to me that the mass murders exemplified in Colorado and Connecticut are ¬†the reaction of an “aborted” generation now seeking its revenge. ¬†The generation whose children suffered abortion at the hands of their own parents will be the generation that is¬†euthanized¬†by their own children. You can call it Karma – I call it “reaping what we have sown.” But, the generation that saw as much as one half of their brothers and sisters die at the hands of abortionist will extract their vengeance, and justly so.

The hand of the judgment of God is upon this nation and we will not survive unless there is a merciful and sovereign move of God upon the nation, causing us to turn from our wickedness, both confess and repent of our perverse and repugnant life style, and as a nation cry out to God for mercy and deliverance.  Anything short of that will seal the fate of this nation.

Those of us who love life and serve God must run to Him and hide our lives in Him. We must guard our families; our children from the perversity of this wicked nation and teach them the¬†principles¬†of Scripture, “showing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and His strength, and the wonderful works He has done…….that the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who will arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments. And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation” (Psalm 78)

God has set my lips on fire with this message, warning Fathers to take up their holy calling to minister life to their children, to sanctify themselves and then their homes before a holy God, and to drive out the wickedness of our nation that it might not abide in our lives, in our marriages, or in our children. While we must continue to shout it from the housetops that men hearing, might repent – we must not fail to remember that our homes are a precious trust given to us from our Heavenly Father – and we must guard them at all costs. ¬†Judgment may fall upon the nation, but with God’s help – it will not fall upon my household; for “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Discussion (1)

There is one response to “As For Me and My House”.

  1. If only people would listen. The perpetrators are the most deaf. In Isaiah 30: 10 he says to the people who claim to belong to God, “Who say to the seers, Do not see, and to the prophets, Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits, get out of the way, turn aside from the path , cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” I really hesitate to type the last eleven words of that quote. It is so scary.
