Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your 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.""

A Curse or a Promise; You Call It!

It seems like America is home to a nation of whiners.  Specific whines that I detest are so-called protected classes of people who feel somehow affronted by someone else's words.  Some of these include being told one is a homophobe or Islamaphobe as we espouse the truth to these types out of a sense of love for our fellow human beings.    I mean, it is the truth that will set one free.  Islamists ought not pretend their feelings are hurt when the civilized world does know of their domination ambitions and their goals to force Sharia Law on America are stymied.  While Islamists view Jesus Christ as a lesser prophet than even Mohammed, they are unwittingly closing the door to salvation that is open to all of us thanks to the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the atonement of our sins.

Homosexuals or abortionists (doctors and female patients alike), ought to know there is forgiveness for their particular brand of sin...that Christ died for us all while we were yet sinners.  It is this truth and the willingness to ask Christ to come into our lives that finally gives us the strength to stand up to the temptations of the flesh, the devil and those who would continue to prey upon the innocent.  "Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (Satan)".

As a Christian, of the born again in the Spirit (John 3:3) variety, I have no choice but to continue, as I draw breath above ground, to espouse the gospel of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins.  Because this is true I can share God's promises with you.  Here is a good one: "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:...."Deuteronomy 30:19.  Includes family provision, and considering fathers are to be held accountable for the spiritual well being of their young children, it is a great promise.

Christians will be around until the rapture and I know the word 'rapture' is not to be found in the bible while the theme is prominent in I Thessalonians 4:13-18 and I Corinthians 15:51-57.  While we are around, we will keep on preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, we will keep on defending our nation against the usurpers trying to destroy the fabric of our Republic.  We will resist President Obama, his czardom and all the elitists/progressives, on both coasts, trying to turn us into a socialist nation.

Something some of you Christians who have not come out of the closet yet....have not been intitiated into sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ ought to know is that we do come with a promise and for those who would do us harm, we also come with a curse.    In Matthew18:2-6 Jesus tells us: "And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

Let us quit being ashamed of the only good gift we could possibly ever give one another.  For you macho types, obviously it is becoming less and less wussy-ish to express belief in something greater than ourselves.  Soon, Christians will be into serious battles in America very much like the assaults that are ongoing throughout the world.

Who noticed that Jesus said 'convert or else'?  Christians know that God said "Vengeance is mine, I will repay" and therefore, I will not cut off your head if you fail to convert...this indeed is between you and God and I am not a muslim.  Now don't get me wrong, I know how to pray and I know the 'prayers of a righteous man availeth much', and I know how to 'bind and loose' and that not one single word of God returns 'void'.  The sword I wield is not for cutting off the head of a non-believer, it is the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places".  Ephesians 6:12. Washington, D.C. is one such 'high place'.  We know the influences of our enemy and these, for those who would believe, have been defeated over 2,000 years ago.  Don't get sucked in by Satan at this late hour by taking the law into  your own hands and endangering your soul.  His time is short and he knows it.

This I will do as Jesus tarries....keep on, keeping on, as they say.  What will it be, a curse or a promise?
