Be Ye Steadfast, Unmovable, and ALWAYS Abounding in the Work of the Lord!
One could argue that WE the People of the United States are engaged in a great Civil War: Christians versus the anti-Christs. According to this article, for example, an “almost ready to retire” grandmother may lose her business, her home, and her life savings as the defendant in a discrimination law suit. This type of persecution of Christians began as a result of Pres. Barack Obama’s legalization of homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered “rights”. Despite her being a devout Christian, Mrs. Stutzman does not have a legal right to deny her services to members of the GLBT community. Ergo, has freedom of religion become passê? We hold these truths to be self-evident that Biblical prophecy is rapidly unfolding in a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Jesus Christ soon shall return for His Church without spot or wrinkle. Yet, most Americans unabashedly have unplugged their irons and have dared Mrs. Stutzman, Jesus, or anyone else to challenge their ungodliness. Of course, atheists and spiritually blind Christians will fail to see a correlation between wickedness in government and the paradigm shift away from Biblical morality. Yet, Jesus admonished members of the Body of Christ to endure until the end and to inherit eternal life. Seldom heard in many churches today in this hymn bearing the same message: “Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? No, there’s a cross for everyone and there’s a cross for me…”
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [Romans 8:28-39]
