Shall We Compromise?

Compromising with God's desires can lead to great sorrow and even death as seen throughout man's history. It seems as though it is everyday we hear our elected officials screaming that we must compromise if we are going to accomplish anything.
To compromise on some issues can be productive but most always when man begins compromising therein follows the corruption of man moral values, which can and does eventually leads to death.

There are certain things that a real man never compromises on... With the fear of the LORD he will never compromises on his love for God's statutes and they shall guide the man to be a godly husband to his wife, a godly Father to his children, a godly neighbor to his neighbors and a godly leader/employer/employee in other words, a godly citizen hopefully with no acceptations.
Man's compromising on critical personal issues has given us approx. 56 million deaths through abortion and a nation that has bathed itself in sexual perversion and divorces.
Compromising on God's WORD has driven God and prayer out from or schools, universities, businesses and this too has brought about death and destruction.
Compromising on our moral integrity has given us the most corrupted government leaders not only in Washington, DC but also in our state and local governments at nearly every level.
For all of this we have no one to blame but ourselves, either for remaining silent for to many years, choosing to be wicked or from supporting the corruption by being an uninformed voter.

Read Numbers 32 – 33 (NIV)


Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh settle east of the Jordan; a summary of Israel’s 40 years in the wilderness

More than 40 years had passed since Moses, while still in Egypt, foretold that God would lead the Israelites to the land He had promised to Abraham. While moving forward with great anticipation and almost in view of the promised land, two of the twelve tribes, those of Reuben and Gad, which had a very great multitude of cattle (Numbers 32:1), decided they would be better off if they remained on the eastern side of the Jordan. So they said to Moses: The country which the Lord smote (conquered) . . . is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle: Wherefore, said they . . . let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us not over Jordan (32:4-5). Moses replied: Wherefore (Why) discourage ye the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the Lord hath given them? (32:7). They were joined by half the tribe of Manasseh (32:33). Humanly speaking, it was a wise financial decision; but, spiritually, it was an act of compromise. The unity of the nation and being able to worship regularly in the presence of God at the Tabernacle should have been uppermost in their desires.

Over a period of years they gradually became involved in idol worship and ignored the Lord’s instructions: These words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up (Deuteronomy 6:6-9).

The two and one-half tribes typify self-indulgent Christians who foolishly allow financial, social, or physical advantages to overly influence their decision making. Like the two and one-half tribes, allowing worldly interests to influence anyone to neglect weekly worship is a slippery slope that will ultimately lead to eternal tragedies as the prophet foretold: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge . . . I will also forget thy children (Hosea 4:6). Christ is to be Lord of every Christian’s life. Whatever the faults of the Church as we know it, the Church is Christ’s Church and Christians are to be responsible members of a local body of believers. If we neglect the Church, we shall eventually drift into secular ac-tivities and a loss of spiritual values. Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. . . . For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (Matthew 16:24,26).

Thought For The Day:

Are you content to do God's will? The Lord says godliness with contentment is great gain.

A Nation In Distress

I do not take this likely to display a symbol of our "Freedom and Liberty,' The United States of America' Flag upside-down, thus meaning that our nation is in great distress.
I therefore say, "I believe the life, liberty and property of US citizens are in dire danger and distress,” I am heart broken to see our nation in such turmoil and with the direction that this nation is going there is great destruction lying directly in our path.
If you don't believe we are in danger of losing our freedom and liberty then you have surely been out of the country, in a coma or blind and deaf for the past several years.
Today we are living in a society that shows very little respect to God's WORD or for that matter to anyone else. Parents are killing their children, children are killing their parents, children are killing children and strangers are killing with little or no discretion in the least. But why should anyone be amazed at this since we have allowed the murder of approximately 4,000 children per-day through abortion for the last 40 years here in America and now with an estimated death tow of over 56 million babies.

They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters..........., and the land was desecrated by their blood. Psalm 106:38
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, Proverbs 6:16-17 (KJV)

For the last 50 years or so we have stood idly by allowing our leaders in Washington DC to get away with numerous offenses that none of us would never have allowed from our neighbors or co-workers. The corruption in Washington DC today is truly mind boggling and it is in all three branches at every level.
The corruption in our states and county governments is nearly as great within most offices. To make matters worse if that is possible there has been very little accountability if any at all by federal, state or county officials for most of these offenses.
For the first 200 years or so of America's existence the citizens could rely upon informative and truthful media outlets in aiding and informing the citizenry, but today most of these organizations have traded their morals and integrity for a story that will either fill their pocket or heighten their own career.
Please keep in mine that it has always been the Conservative Patriots that has protected the sanctity of the America symbol of "Freedom and Liberty," and it has always been the Liberals that supports their rights to burn the America Flag while protesting.
The Liberals have fought and advocated for the process of no identification required at the poling centers and there is only one reason that they would advocate for this and that is allowing for easier voter fraud. There is absolutely no integrity within these people.
In today's society we are required to provide identification nearly everywhere we go. We know there were numerous incidents of voter fraud all across America and in addition, a large portion of the absentee ballots from soldiers overseas were delivered a day late, therefore excluding them from being counted. This is totally unaccepted and I feel that felony charges would be appropriate for those that were responsible for this happening.

Flying a flag upside down has military origins and the U.S. Flag Code permits this use of the American flag as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property. Displaying a flag in this manner has been used as a statement in the belief that there is distress in civic, political and social discourse and grave disagreement in the nation.
Under the First Amendment, Supreme Court rulings protect this form of expression. As the liberal United States Supreme Court Justice William Joseph Brennan, Jr. noted, the "principal function of free speech under our system of government is to invite dispute; it may indeed best serve its high purpose when it induces condition of unrest, creates dissatisfaction with conditions as they are, or even stirs people to anger."
The distress felt by millions of Americans today is because of the direction that this administration is leading America. We not only believe but know the Democratic Party’s current direction is literally destroying our way of life and our children's future. When a government proceeds with virtually no consideration for the people's health and wealth having no concerns for an incomprehensible and growing national debt that can never be repaid, which is the financial obligation of every tax payer; therein, creating a danger of life, extreme danger to our property and our existence.

Title 4, Chapter 1

§ 8(a)The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Most individuals who have served in military service of our nation should recognize this signal.

Example: To protest the economy, an election or against a war. The Flag Code states it should only be displayed upside down when there is extreme danger to life or property.
It is recommended that people who wish to make a protest in this fashion and to do so is respectful of the flag. We must remember that our flag represents the government of the United States and all of its policies. It also stands for our freedom of speech, our right to practice or even not to practice the religion of our choice and it represents one united nation in all its glory and the American values. And most importantly it stands for the sacrifices made past, present and in the future to protect our freedoms.
