Are We in the Twilight Zone?

Posted on April 15, 2016 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)


Just when you thought the world could get no crazier with the redefinition of marriage, now we are having a bathroom debate.

I firmly believe that common sense is enduring a slow and painful death. At first it sounded like a bad joke but the decision to protect clergy and businesses from the perversion of our culture laws are being debated.

My friend I have problems coming to grips with the idea of my granddaughter going to the restroom only to find a hairy man with a dress and a wig on in the next stall. Hollywood, the NFL and other companies are all crying alarm to what they refer to as laws that discriminate against the homosexual community. I believe it is time to draw the line in the sand, enough is enough!

Excuse me, but our identity is not in your feelings but your biology. I can't believe there is actually a need to say this, but many on the Left are living in their own invented reality and they are demanding that we live in it too. The reason we've always had separate bathrooms is because of biological sexual differences, not because of feelings or "gender identity."

How could this possibly be controversial? Are we to risk the safety of millions of women and children in public restrooms because an extremely small number of people are experiencing a mismatch between their psychology and their biology? Good public policy does not risk the physical safety of women and children so an extreme few have a preference for a different bathroom.

These new laws simply say that people will use public bathrooms that align with their biological sex as found on their birth certificate. During this upcoming election it's time for Christians to truly vote their convictions and get us out of the Twilight Zone!

Is this what America is coming to – men fighting over their “right” to use the lady’s restroom, shower with girls, enter the female dressing room, and homosexuals insisting the government be used as a hammer to force a baker to bake a cake for a gay ceremony? Preachers being jailed for preaching the gospel or refusing to perform marriage ceremonials that are contrary to Biblical principles or their belief’s?

As a former civil rights advocate in the 60’s I will not sit on the sidelines and allow liberal media and establishment politicians to distort matters of public policy. It’s time for the church to the stand for righteousness and the fight against progressive liberalism or be rolled over by LGBT agenda. Which will you choose?

Wake up church, the coffee is burning!


 

We Are At War!

We are at War

 

Just a couple of weeks ago the world was rocked once again by Islamic radicals. As France now joins in the battle with Russia, the United States and others that are part of this coalition the key to winning any war is to know and understand your enemy. Although our government will not admit this is a war, it is really a battle of ideology. Beloved you can never defeat an ideology with bombs and tanks.

 

Although we left the nation of Iraq in the hands of their government they have to desire the type of government we have paid for with the precious blood of our soldiers and Marines. “It’s not going to go away, because we have to understand the ideology of those who are committing what we call acts of terror.” In their minds they are fulfilling the will of god and their desire to have establish a true Islamic State, in actuality “They want to establish a caliphate.”

 

“When you get down to it, there is a deep hatred for Christianity and Judaism.” Europe as we know it is virtually a secular state spiritually. Many of the churches have closed and there is little evidence of true Christianity present especially in their governments. We are seeing the Bible come to life right before our eyes.

 

The book of Ezekiel in the Old Testament shows the similarities between modern events and prophecy. In Ezekiel 38, the prophecy writes of two lands known as Gog and Magog. The prophecy is that these countries will join others, including Persia, to storm into Israel. While there isn’t anything certain that identifies the modern version of Gog, many biblical scholars hold the view that Magog is Russia. Persia is modern day Iran. So, a prophecy that links Russia with Iran is causing chatter among the faithful because of the unusual collaboration between the two countries in defeating the Islamic State and Syria rebels in Syria.

 

Some biblical experts also state that prophesies in Isaiah 17:1-3 and Jeremiah 49:23-27 indicates that Damascus, the capital of Syria, will be destroyed and left in a “heap of ruins.” “Wait a second, Bible student, pay attention. There’s a scenario in the book of Ezekiel 37, 38, and 39 that talks about the massive force to the north of Israel marching on her and the force is identified as Magog.” Most prophecy teachers and experts believe that Magog is modern-day Russia one of the allies that marches with Magog is Persia.”

 

We must pay attention to scripture that compares the last days to the days of Noah. The main point we must notice is that no one will be expecting Christ to return just as no one believed Noah when he talked of a coming flood. We are facing the most biblically illiterate culture in modern history.

 

Ready or not Jesus is coming back.
