News headlines: Obama backs Saudi peace initiative, but what are the consequences to this act? This peace plan requires that Israel must give up control of East Jerusalem, the holiest place on earth to both the Jewish and Christian believers, allowing the Palestinians to take control of this area. This plan will place Israel at a much greater risk for terrorist attacks than it already faces. America's backing of this plan will also cost her a great price as well. The Bible makes it very clear that the land belongs to Israel and that God will bless those who bless Israel and He will curse those who curse Israel. Obama' support for this plan reveals his alignment to supporting Islamic dictatorships and disregarding one of our strongest ally. This will most defiantly weaken our relationship with all our allies and show Obama' administration as appeasers with the terrorist organizations.
I can't believe that God will allow this to happen in East Jerusalem, so I think we are about to see a battle for control of this area... If this is the case, than I believe we may very well be at the beginning of the final Seven years; only time will tell...
Three or four years ago I was witnessing to and telling a Indiana State Trooper how 9/11 was the first of three major terrorist attacks for America and he says, "So you're a Christian?" I said, "Yes, I am!" Then he says, "You know I don't have any tolerance for a group that is so intolerant of others, like the gays and the pro-abortion people." I started laughing and said, "Sir, you should look in the mirror tonight when you get home and repeat what you just said, because in saying this you are being intolerant yourself." The State Trooper said, "You know, you better get back in your truck and get on down the road driver." Most of those who speak of the intolance of other groups are the most intolanent of all!
Many also refuse to consider that God is not only a God of love, but He also is a God of Righteousness and Holiness... A god can not be a Holy God without righteously judging man sins.
Whatever the excuse people give for disobeying God's Word and then thinking that God will bless their gifts of kindness, talents, time or money they are being deceived by the prince of this world. God can't bless partial obedience no matter how sincere a person may be, partial obedience is actually disobedience. To obey is better than to sacrifice and obedience will lead to holiness.
For the last several years I have been listening to at least six radio Conservatives talk shows, each of these hosts have said that they believed in God and most have said they were Christian... Each one of these hosts have said that "America is the last real hope for this world." A serious minded Christian knows that the only hope for this world lies only with the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Christ Jesus.
A Christian' life is governed by the principle of love; he sees the lost, who Jesus died for on the Cross, as one who will be forever separated from God. Being a Christian is all about having a personal loving relationship with God and also having a love that drives us forward to seek out, sharing and inviting those who don't know Jesus to accept Him as their Lord...
Jesus said,"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matt5:43-48
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god(Satan) of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6
