Beggars Welcome

I love her. I don’t know how else to say it. Barbara is everything to me! I would be completely lost without her. My first wife, Julie, died over 20 years ago from a long battle with cancer. I was suddenly alone with 4 relatively young children. I was devastated, lonely, and utterly spent.  My world was shaken.

Although God clung to me and helped to strengthen my faith, I admit I was emotionally destitute. My nerves were shot. I know I was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress. The Migraines became like hammers. The minutes passed like days.

Each night after getting the kids in bed, I would retreat to my upstairs bedroom. The loneliness was unbearable. It was a type of pain I had never felt before.  A few times, I sobbed and wailed so hard that I started to actually “soul groan”. It is a gut-wrenching cry from deep within my chest….the kind that I would almost pass out from.

Out of necessity, I began to beg God. I begged Him for mercy and nothing else. I had never begged anyone for anything up until this point. What I learned during those lonely nights at my bedside was that begging is done by beggars.

Someone who resorts to begging has become destitute. His or her pride is gone. He or she no longer cares what people think. Beggars are unable to right themselves. Friends, although this is a truly painful place to arrive at, it became the best place for me. I knew the only One I could turn to was the God of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Every night for at least a month, I would pray to the Lord, seeking His face, and begging Him for mercy. I read my Bible and looked up Old and New Testament references where the word “mercy” was used. I met weekly with my Prayer Buddy, Tim Flynn. He prayed with me often over this.

In the New Testament,  Blind Bartimaeus  (Mark 10:46-52) cries out for Jesus to help him. “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (verses 47 & 48)  Bartimaeus knew no one could help him but God Himself. When you are destitute, you don’t have the luxury of doubting. Neither did Bartimaeus. Jesus asked him what it was that he wanted. Bartimaeus simply said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” (verse 51)

In verse 52, Jesus says, “Go, your faith has healed you.”

One day, Tim, my Prayer Buddy, told me he had a very recent dream about a single mom whose name was Barbara. She happened to be his child’s Kindergarten teacher. He asked me if I knew of her. I said, “No.” He then said that he and his wife Sue felt that perhaps God wanted them to mention Barbara to me.

After singing “Match Maker, Match Maker, Make Me a Match”, I patiently waited for 20 minutes, then I called her. The rest is history. What is amazing is that God knew I desperately needed mercy. I begged Him for mercy. God gave me Barbara!

Trust me, friends. The God of the Bible is real! Jesus is alive and He answers the sincere cry of those who know they are destitute. Psalm 102:17 says, He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.” He moves swiftly to those who realize they, in and of themselves, have nothing to offer Him…nothing that would impress Him.

With Jesus, sincere, lowly beggars are always welcome.

May God bless you as you learn to love, follow, and obey the Lord Jesus!

Beggars Welcome

Peace in your Marriage?


Tom wept in my office last night.

Marita, Tom’s new wife of less than a year, lives six states away. There are some road blocks hindering them from being together.  They are on two different sheets of music when it comes to understanding roles in the marital relationship and submitting unconditionally to the Lord Jesus and His inspired Word, the Bible.

Tom and Marita are in crisis.

 

images (6)

 

There is no peace in their relationship.

No peace and surrender in their fellowship with the Lord Jesus, means there will be no peace and oneness in their marriage.

This morning, I was stumbling through the Psalms when a certain passage that I had highlighted months ago caught my eye.  “Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”    Psalm 119:165  (NIV)

I believe the main crisis in Tom and Marita’s lives is that neither of them loves God’s Word nor consequently God Himself. They both profess to be believers and followers of Christ, yet, there is an utter absence of peace.  Where is their unity, tenderness, and oneness? It is washed down the gutter of self-centeredness.

They each want God to meet their needs. Who doesn’t? Do they not realize that if they are truly saved children of God, they belong to Him? He is a good Father to them meeting every legitimate need they will ever have. Do they understand their chief aim is to glorify Him, love Him, serve Him, and depend on Him?

They each want God and consequently the other to revolve around their respective life, their expectations, and their world.

 

images (2)

 

 

They want God and mate to serve them…to be in orbit around them!

They do not long for one another because they do not long for Jesus. They do not seek Him, thirst for Him, or pour over His Word, the Bible. They love the things the world has to offer more than sacrificing their lives for their great Friend Jesus.

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”  John 15:13  (NIV)

There is a great difference between knowing the Truth and loving the Truth.

“Truth is so obscure in these times and falsehood so established that
unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.”

Blaise Pascal (1623—1662)blaise_pascal

French Philosopher, Mathematician, and Scientist

They say they know Jesus, but do they love Him? The devil knows the Word of God, but he will never love it!

Tom is not grateful for Marita because Tom is not grateful for his Savior. It is quite probable that Tom has taken his eyes off of his First Love, Jesus, the Provider, and has mistakenly lowered them onto Marita, Jesus’ Provision for him.

This is a Christian Marriage’s disastrous mistake! It is also the devil’s plan.

Once Tom takes his eyes off of his Lord Jesus, he soon forgets that it is Jesus who gave him Marita.  In time, she will not measure up to Tom’s needs or wants. He will slowly and subtly begin to reject her and, if not repented from, begin to hunt for another.

 

Remedy? Focus on the Provider; not on the Provision.

 

She is God’s custom designed gift for him just as Eve was “just right” for Adam. The reason in Genesis Chapter 2 that Adam did not reject Eve when God presented her to him was because he trusted the character and integrity of His Provider. Otherwise, instead of stating excitedly:

“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”  Genesis 2:23a  (NIV),

Adam might have said, “Ya know, God, she’s not bad…but…do ya have something back in the stockroom that is, say, a redhead, a little thinner, and a wee bit less moody?”

I do not want to throw stones at anyone.

If anyone deserves to be stoned for falling short of God’s perfection, it would be me!  In fact, I would make a good poster child for Romans 3:23:

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

images

Instead of pointing out where people are failing, Barbara and I want to help couples fall in love with the Lord Jesus, live by faith according to His Word, and experience joy, hope, and oneness. We want to help them become Gospel Lights who will shine Christ’s love and truth to a world steeped in darkness. Only God can accomplish this. We cannot. We want to help them to enter into:

“The Selfless Life.”

What we will be challenging Tom and Marita to do is first, embrace Matthew 6:33:

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

The litmus paper test of whether or not they are serious about this is:

Do they have teachable, grateful hearts? Do they desire to bless their mate more than having their mate bless them? 

If not, they are not filled with the Holy Spirit. They are filled with self.

Next we will try to help them learn to be filled with the Holy Spirit. www.campuscrusade.com/downloads/SFL.pdf

Finally, we will be helping them to humbly embrace Ephesians 5:21:

“Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”   and, of course, the verses in the rest of this chapter that so clearly flesh out what this “submitting” looks like.

Submission is a military term that means “to voluntarily come under the authority of”. In essence, I believe it means for each person in the marriage to “reverently and respectfully look out for the best interests of the other person.” The wife does not do this because the husband deserves it. Heavens no! The wife does this out of what?

She does it out of reverence for Christ.

She must remember (Romans 5:8) that while she was yet a sinner deserving of Hell, Christ died for her, took the Hell sentence for her, and gave her forgiveness, His perfect righteousness, new life, and Heaven instead. Do you see it now? She is to give her husband Heaven knowing he deserves Hell the same way Jesus gave and gives continually Heaven and grace to her instead of the “other”. She is to go out of her way to affirm him and defer to him. She is to believe in him.

The same applies for the husband and how he is to prize, treasure, and lead his wife: Heaven given when Hell is deserved. This is the only way a couple can experience peace in their marriage. When a couple decides to love the Lord, forsake self, be filled with the Holy Spirit, and submit to one another of of reverence for Jesus, oneness is achieved. Then life gets rather exciting even in light of the expected increase in spiritual warfare.  (See Ephesians 6:10-18)

Why?

Because when one of God’s married couples has eternity in their sites and Jesus at the helm, souls will be drawn to them. And when souls are drawn to them, they will catch a glimpse of the One who is “the way and the truth and the life.” (See John 14:6)

Look closely below… What do you see between the 2 lines?

__________________________________________________________________

.

__________________________________________________________________

If you are like me, you see a small black dot. Right? When Jesus sees you, His beloved, He does not focus or dwell on your black spot(s): Where you fail, mess up, or struggle with imperfection.  NO!

Because of His loving Grace, He focuses on the white space: Where you are winning, hoping, and trying to live honorably and pleasingly before Him. He knows you mess up and stumble at times. He knows you are weak, have wounds, personality quirks, and sin bents. He knows and He understands. He loves you and will help you.  (Read Isaiah 41:10) Quite frankly, He does not even see your black spot or spots. He wants you to confess sin and failure because he wants the best for you and wants unhindered, unbroken sweet fellowship with you.

Suggestion? As Jesus graces, affirms, and believes in you, do likewise with your mate.

Focus on where he is winning, even partially winning. Don’t focus on her shortcomings or where she let you down. You love him. Let God change her. You build him up. Thank God for her!

Jesus was and is selfless. When a couple’s passion is Jesus and His Word, they gradually become more and more selfless. They will want to serve and support each other. They will look out for each other. They won’t want to be apart from each other. Other people will see this. At the grocery store, the ball game, at work, and at church, others will see Jesus being represented in this humble, teachable, selfless couple. Others will want what this couple has.  Eternal life, joy…and great peace.

Where will you be 100 years from now?

Do you lack full assurance of your Salvation? Christianity is not Christianity without 100% assurance!
If I am not eternally secure in Christ, then I am eternally insecure.
images (1)

I Do. 

Any other view, for me, spells doom and despair…for every second of my life I am the glad receiver of His continual font of grace and forgiveness. Apart from Christ and His saving life, grace, and shed blood and His “can never be removed” robe of His Righteousness (Isaiah 61:10), every second of my existence would require condemnation, judgement, and damnation.
imgres

“I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels.”    Isaiah 61:10

 

Apart from His eternal, covenant promises, I would most assuredly and quickly slip off the cliff of being Heaven bound and would profoundly plunge into the depths of darkness where hope will never hear my screams.

If eternal insecurity exists in Christianity, then this is what those who embrace Islam believe. They are all eternally insecure……with the rare exception that those who blow themselves up to kill infidels most likely will be “assured” of heaven with 72 Virgins in paradise. Even Mohammed was unsure.

Note the following printed from  www.BlueLetterBible.org

Morning and Evening
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)
June 16th
Morning Reading

 

 “And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish.” — John 10:28

images (3)

 

The Christian should never think or speak lightly of unbelief. For a child of God    to mistrust His love, His truth, His faithfulness, must be greatly displeasing to Him. How can we ever grieve Him by doubting His upholding grace? Christian! It is contrary to every promise of God’s precious Word that thou shouldst ever be forgotten or left to perish.If it could be so, how could He be true who has said, “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I never forget thee.”                         Isaiah 49:15

 

 

 

What were the values of that promise?”The mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.” Isaiah 54:10

 

Where were the truths of Christ’s words?”I give unto My sheep eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand.”       John 10:28

 

Where were the doctrines of grace? They would be all disproved if one child of God should perish. Where were the veracity of God, His honour, His power, His grace, His covenant, His oath, if any of those for whom Christ has died, and who have put their trust in Him, should nevertheless be cast away? Banish those unbelieving fears which so dishonour God. Arise, shake thyself from the dust, and put on thy beautiful garments. Remember it is sinful to doubt His Word wherein He has promised thee that thou shalt never perish. Let the eternal life within thee express itself in confident rejoicing.

 

“The gospel bears my spirit up:

A faithful and unchanging God

Lays the foundation for my hope,

In oaths, and promises, and blood.”

(Boldness Added)

I add this small note: Jude 1:1 says I am “preserved or kept by Jesus Christ”.

The New Living Translation renders Jude 1:1:  “This letter is from Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and a brother of James. I am writing to all who have been called by God the Father, who loves you and keeps you safe in the care of Jesus Christ.”   (Bold Added)

Thank God I am not kept safe by me or my dim faith or dismal track record. Romans 8:1-2: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
This gracious, great news is that, as His child, I am the forever recipient of God’s unconditional and uncondemnable love and favor! Rejoice and be glad, oh confessed, repented Child of God! The attitude of the follower of Jesus needs to be:

GRATITUDE!

Do others see you as a grateful person? Please let us know if this article helps or encourages you.

May God bless you as you learn to love, follow, and obey the Lord Jesus!

Becoming a Gospel Light Marriage

 

Three_Strands1

 

 

1. Maintain your First Love

2. Be Devoted to your Mate

3. Find a Foxhole Buddy

 

While I was a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York going on 40 years ago, our trainers decided they wanted us to excel in character development and combat readiness. What fun they had planned for us! On a hot, sunny August morning, they trucked us out in the middle of nowhere to a mountainous area with very high cliffs.

They made us walk up this one mountain side and peer over the cliff. The ground was over 130 feet straight down! The plan that morning was for us to learn and practice the art of repelling down the side of that cliff. Now for someone from Wisconsin who did not even like rock climbing, I knew this activity would be a challenge. I was genuinely scared!

 

Parachuting out of a plane would not be my idea of a Sunday picnic either but at least you have a main chute and a back up chute. With repelling, you live or die based on the ROPE. There are no back up ropes. If it fails, then d-o-w-n you go.

 

A key Scriptural verse is found in Ecclesiastes 4:12.

 

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

 

I have worked with marriages, families, mentoring, discipleship, and evangelism for 32 years now. I find I do best to survive and thrive on the face of the steep cliff of life by applying a relationship equation from the above mentioned verse.

 

Relationship Equation:

 

First Love + Devotion to Mate + Foxhole Buddy =

  

A Gospel Light Marriage for Christ

 

 

I want to challenge you today. Think for a minute. Why are you on this earth? There is a reason. The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, wants to save you and commission you to be His Ambassador. He wants to reach, save, strengthen, and equip other people in this world through you! Your marriage is to be a cinematic representation of the love and forgiveness of Christ to others. He wants to increase Heaven through your marriage. Now you know why the devil is bent on crippling and destroying traditional marriage. He has a plan to ruin yours.

 

Read a sample from our book by going to:   Remember The Rowboats .

 

 

The Lord Jesus of Nazareth wants to give you His heart passion for the lost, the lonely, and the hurting. He wants Heaven filled. In straightforward terms, Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, desires passionately that your marriage becomes:

 

A Gospel Light Marriage!

  

In Matthew 5:14, Jesus says, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”

Please observe the lighthouse in the storm. What do you think is its purpose?

 lighthouse-in-storm

 

 

In a similar way, The Lord’s marriage is to shine for Him. The people in this marriage are to be yielded to the power, presence, and leading of the Holy Spirit. They are to be in the Word of God, the Bible, individually and together. As a result of others observing this marriage, the lost and lonely would want to seek Jesus and find Him too.

God’s love is to be contagious! Gospel Light Marriages open their homes often to show hospitality. They see it as their mission to serve those with legitimate needs. They possess the desire to be involved in a Christ-honoring, Bible believing church. They find it essential and natural to be mentored by or to mentor other couples who love God’s Word and want to follow the Lord Jesus no matter what.

Just prior to Jesus ascending into heaven after His resurrection, He charges us with His Great Commission: With absolute authority, He commands all true followers of His. In Matthew 28:18-20 He says,

 

18 …All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make  disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”   {Bold added}

 

What Jesus is saying here is while we are going about our life and going to locations and people He leads us to, we are to constantly share the name and love of the Lord Jesus Christ, His message of redemption, His desire for a personal one on one relationship, and His forgiveness of our sins. With tender humility, we are to model the Christian faith and teach God’s commands from Scripture to others.

We are to witness to people and share our spiritual journey. We are to talk of Jesus, our True Friend. We are not to be ashamed of this. It is not our job to convince anyone. Rather we are to share His love. We are to share what we believe and why. We are to stand for truth and honor. We must then leave the timing, the quality, and the quantity of all results up to God.

We are to be patient and kind in the grocery line or at the airport when delays and difficulties occur. We are to be controlled and empowered by the Holy Spirit at all times. We need to be the same person outside of our homes as we are inside our homes. It is called being a Congruent Person. 

 

Your marriage is to be a Gospel Light and His Ambassador to win, build, and send out as many souls and marriages as we can to, likewise, be Gospel Lights to others.

A great website to help you grow in faith and to help you mentor others is:

 

Growing in Christ

  

Passion!

 

Do you, as a married couple, want to follow the Lord Jesus? Then ask Him to give you His passion for people. If you are going to be serious about following and abiding in Christ, Barbara and I want to challenge you to adopt three closely linked priorities as you are led by the Holy Spirit.

 

1.      Maintain your First Love with the Lord Jesus.

 

a)      Seek Him daily. Yield to Him fully and unconditionally.

b)      Confess and repent of any sins He brings to light.

c)      Spend quality, uninterrupted time with Him.

d)     Read, study, and meditate on His Word, the Bible. The book of John in the New Testament and Psalms in the Old Testament are great places to start.

e)      As your first priority, by faith, choose to yield to the Holy Spirit each hour of  the day. Think of yourself as a baseball glove and the Holy Spirit is the hand that wears it. You belong to the hand. The hand has the right to wear you. You have no will of your own; only that of the hand’s choosing. He lives within every follower of Christ. When you yield to Him by faith (a choice of the will) and obedience, He, then, allegorically speaking, can fill you, wear you, and use you in Center Field, Third Base, behind Home Plate, etc. If He so  chooses, He could toss you into the dug out for awhile. He does not have to explain “Why?”

 

stock-photo-very-old-brown-leather-baseball-glove-49626877

 

As Major Ian Thomas, author of The Saving Life of Christ, once told me over lunch: “It is our job to avail ourselves fully to God each morning. It is then God’s job to place us in whatever field of endeavor He so chooses.”       (Paraphrased + It sounded a lot better with his British accent.)

 

f)       Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all  these things will be given to you as  well.”       NIV

g)      John 15:5 says, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”      NASB

h)      Matthew 5:18 says, Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,”        NLT      If you would like to know how to be filled with the Holy Spirit go to:

 

How To Be Filled With The Holy  Spirit

http://www.calvarycommunity.net/

 

 

 

2.      Be wholeheartedly devoted to your mate.

 

a)      Be honorable in all relations with the opposite gender.

b)      Never be alone with the opposite gender, not for coffee, not for lunch.

c)      You must be accountable on the use of all computers, PS3’s, and cell phones; wherever you have internet access. The fool will refuse to do this.

d)      We strongly recommend  www.covenanteyes.com . The website states:

 

*   More than 1 in 8 web searches are for erotic content.

*   67% of children admit to clearing their internet history to hide their online activity.

*   79% of accidental exposures to internet porn among kids take place in the home.

*   56% of divorce cases involve one party having an obsessive interest in online porn.

*   29% of working adults accessed explicit websites on work computers.

 

e)      Psalm 86:11 states, “Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I  may fear your name.”        NIV

If your heart is divided toward the Lord and toward some other idol or Giant in your life, then you will most assuredly share the devotion pledged to your mate at the marriage altar with others: Co- workers, friends, porn,  sexting, sexually stirring movies and books, chat rooms, dating sites, strip clubs, prostitutes, etc.

Pastor Chuck Cervenka, from Calvary Community Church in Williams Bay, WI. shared in a recent sermon that he and his wife were at the mall. Out of the corner of his eye, he could make out the 14 foot tall poster of a Victoria’s Secret model.  Chuck said he chose to look straight ahead. He shared, “If it is supposed to be Victoria’s secret then why is the photo 14 feet tall?” He then humbly shared with us, “My wife’s secret is enough for me.”

3.      Find a Foxhole Buddy!

 

a)      Have you ever been alone or lost in a woods at night? It is better if you have a trusted friend with you. If   you are in a foxhole with another soldier, you become very thankful you are not alone. The trust and bond that forms cannot be  described well other than: You’ve got each other’s back. 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 is clear:

 

9 Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their labor:

10 If either of them falls down,

one can help the other up.

But pity anyone who falls

and has no one to help them up.

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

 

 

b)      Who do you think the third strand is here?      -   The Holy Spirit.

Go to:  By the way, who is the Holy Spirit and why did He come?

c)      I meet almost every week at a small restaurant in my home town, Elkhorn, Wisconsin, with a trusted confidant, my FoxHole Buddy. Bottom line? We have each other’s backs. In the military, they say, “six’s” like the bottom number of a face clock.

 

 d)     There are three verses FoxHole Buddies live by:

 

1)      James 5:16

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”     NLT                                                                                                                                                                                                               

2)      Galatians 6:2

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”     NIV

 

3)      Hebrews 3:13    

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”     NIV

 

e)      Read  Battle Casualty and maintaining strong moral fences:

Troubled Heart this Easter?

  Troubled Hearts

As you know, we are facing very challenging times. There is trouble in the land.

God’s holy, sacred, and ordained institution, marriage, is under direct broadside assault.

This should not surprise us. The devil wants to destroy the hallowed instrument God uses to pass on a godly heritage. The devil does not want Hell robbed and Heaven filled. He wants lost souls to remain lost forever.

The devil also knows that there is no greater tool in God’s plan to win lost souls, mend or prepare them, and then send them out to reach others for Christ than His ministering agent: MARRIAGE.   Chuck Swindoll says, “Home is where life makes up its mind.”

With all the turmoil, godless arrogance and nonsense that we see via our national media and     offices of political power, Barbara and I are focusing on just a few things:

 

  • This Easter Week we are focusing on Jesus and His Word. We read out loud together a Bible chapter of the Easter story each day this week. We discuss it. We pray together.

 

  • Because the Spiritual Warfare has been intense lately, Barbara and I are focusing on our marriage, not letting anything including family and ministry get in between us.  John 16:33

 

  • Finally, we want to focus on and thank God for you and we want to pray for you specifically by name. Please e mail us your chief, confidential prayer requests to  jgrunseth@centurylink.net

flat,550x550,075,f

Barbara and I ask the Lord to bless and encourage you this Easter.

Have a peaceful, blessed time focusing on Jesus. Let your heart not be troubled. He has overcome the world!    John 16:33

 

He is Risen!

Observations Regarding Two Bibles

I watched our President place his hand on Abraham Lincoln’s Bible and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Bible.

 

 

The Presidential Inauguration and the taking of the Oath of the Office of the President of the United States are supposed to be grand, momentous, and historic occasions for all who call themselves Americans. History is being made. Unfortunately, some of the President’s words revealed a disregard for the God of this fine nation and for the millions who love and honor Him and His Holy Word, the Bible.

 

I was surprised when the President correlated the struggle of the homosexual movement with the Civil Rights Movement. These two struggles could not be more different.

 

In the Civil Rights Movement, people of color courageously struggled to achieve rightful equality in all areas of life. This is pleasing and honoring to God and His Bible. All are created equal.

 

In the homosexual movement, people that are struggling greatly with strong tendencies toward same gender sexual perversion are trying to convince themselves and others that their behavior is acceptable, good, and not sin.

 

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” 

     I Corinthians 6:9-10                                        

 

If we truly trust in the God of the Bible, it follows that we ought to honor Him and His Word. Right?

 

 

What do you think people would say if the President had stated that the struggle of unrepentant, greedy, drunk, adulterers was similar to the cause of the Civil Rights Movement? These practices against Almighty God are equally offensive as the unrepentant, homosexual offender lifestyle.

The Bible, God’s Holy Word, says,

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”   Mark 12:30

I challenge our governmental leaders to decide to not just ‘trust in God’, but back that up with a decision to honor Him and His Word as well.

Maybe they should memorize I Samuel 2:30(b) which says,

”But now the LORD declares: ‘Far be it from me! Those who honor me I will honor, but those who despise me will be disdained.” 

Before our President placed his hand on those two Bibles, perhaps he should have read what Abraham Lincoln once wrote,

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God.”

       Abraham Lincoln 1863  (From Church and State in the United  States, New York: Harper and Brothers, 1950.)

 

 

Rather than attempting to diminish our God given freedoms and righteous standards, our President and all other Americans should heed what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said a number of years ago:

 “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

 

 

Question: Who determines what is evil and what is not: God Almighty or man?

Night in America. Darkness Prevails.

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God.”

Abraham Lincoln 1863
From Church and State in the United States
New York: Harper and Brothers, 1950.

 

Lincoln’s words ring loud and clear. We have forgotten God. Because of this, as the Apostle Paul declares, we have exchanged the truth of God for the lies of the devil.

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie…”

Romans 1:25

 

According to Carl Zimmerman’s research in his book, Family and Civilization, eight specific patterns of domestic behavior have signaled the downward spiral and imminent demise of every culture:

 

1.  Marriage lost its sacredness; it was frequently broken by divorce.

2. Traditional meaning of the marriage ceremony was lost. Alternate forms and definitions of marriage arose, and traditional marriage vows were replaced by individual marriage contracts.

3. Feminist movements appeared, and women lost interest in child bearing and
mothering, preferring to pursue power and influence.

4. Public disrespect for parents and authority in general increased.

5. Juvenile delinquency, promiscuity, and rebellion accelerated.

6. People with traditional marriages refused to accept family responsibilities.

7. Desire for and acceptance of adultery grew.

8. Increased tolerance for sexual perversions of all kinds, particularly
homosexuality, with a resultant increase in sex-related crimes.1

1 Family and Civilization: Carle Clark Zimmerman; edited by James Kurth; 2nd ed., rev. and abridged. Wilmington, Del.: ISI Books, 2007.
 

 

In light of the moral condition our country is in, read the following:

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common  enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader … If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security.”

Samuel Adams
Father of the American Revolution, instigator of
the Boston Tea Party, signer of the Declaration of Independence, member of Congress

I wonder what Samuel Adams and Abraham Lincoln would think and say now?

Where do you think we are as a nation on the ever worsening scale of 1 through 8 from above?

We believe we are in the final stages.

If we, as a people, do not turn back to God from sin and self focus, beg His forgiveness, and, once again, embrace the truth of Holy Scripture, our nation, our communities, our churches, and our families will sink into the mire of tolerance, mediocrity, and compromise. As biblical counselors, we know many marriages and families are falling apart. It does not matter who the couple is or what faith they say they follow. Disintegration of the family unit and a falling away from reverence for God are directly related. Few people look to God’s inerrant, inspired Holy Word, the Bible, as authoritative for all areas of life.

Chuck Swindoll said, “It is at home where life makes up its mind .”

Our nation is in crisis! People today are hurting and wounded in their personal lives. Many have simply lost hope. Many are living in sin and refusing to acknowledge their iniquity before Almighty God. They know they are in sin. They just don’t care! We live in an increasingly pagan land where barbaric values are replacing the godly, humble virtues that forged our country.

 

Here is the great danger.

When a nation rejects God’s truth, whoever is in power determines what is right. The ruling philosophy becomes:

Might determines Right.

 

This is what happened in Nazi Germany. Since Hitler had rejected God and had the power, he determined what was right. Millions lost their lives as a result! Roughly only 1 in 7 pastors refused to pay the required homage to Hitler and His 3rd Reich. They suffered dearly. Many were imprisoned and died from the harsh treatment.

America, as a nation, has rejected God. Politics has become a power struggle. The victor determines who and what is right. The victor also determines who and what is wrong. Money and image have become false gods. Christians who seek the truth found only in God’s Word must embrace it, love it, and stand up for it. If we don’t, who will? We have been lied to and many of us are in bondage to these lies.

“Truth is so obscure in these times and falsehood so established that unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.”

Blaise Pascal (1623—1662)    French Philosopher, Mathematician, Scientist, and Christian
                                                                                                                                      

 

 

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2Chronicles 7:14

 

The aging grandfather looked to his beloved granddaughter and asked her, “Do you believe that darkness will come into your life?” She thought for a moment and then said, “Yes, Grandfather.”

Then he looked deep into her eyes with a caring, steadfast love from God and asked, “And what if the darkness prevails?” The sadness on her face was slowly replaced by a smile of growing proportions. She took a deep breath, looked into his eyes, and said with resolve:

“Then I will light a candle!”

                                                                                                                                                      

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

When we choose to dwell in the darkness, we snuff out a lot of candles. Instead, Barbara and I want to light as many candles for the Lord as we can. We want to cheer the hopeless, encourage the crushed in spirit, and bring comfort, joy, and light to those still swallowed in darkness. This is our prayer!

We want to introduce as many people to Jesus, our Lord and Savior, as we can. We want to prevent souls from going to Hell and, instead, help them go to Heaven someday.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

Edmund Burke, 1729-1797, Irish political philosopher, Whig politician and statesman who is often regarded as the father of modern conservatism.

                                               

 

America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Both were fought for. Both must be fought for again, not with bullets, but with moral courage and conviction. These must be rooted in the eternal Word of God, the Bible.

We must ask God to help us become men and women of courage.

Courage enough to face ridicule, loss, threats, and marginalization. Courage enough to stand up for the honor of God and country, and for marriage and the family. Courage to defend our Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic. Courage to stand against the quickening currents of tolerance, disrespect toward Christian convictions, and celebrated gross immorality. Courage to pray humbly to Almighty God, the One who blessed this nation into being.

“Courage: the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.” 

Maya Angelou, American Poet and Pulitzer Prize Winner.

 

 

Let us pray for courage.

Then let’s stand and be courageous for the Lord and this blessed land.
