when I consider the OT prophets, that they were watchmen on the wall who prophecied of the corruption of the day and God's judgment to come, like a sword, as we say the Word of God is like a sword, with that kind of precision...
and then I compare it to the ignorance displayed today whereas cultural Marxism is accepted by the churches...
then I would say we are in drastic need of the prophetic voice now.
and that there has been a lot of edifying but little accountability for our idolatry to the world..
hence the problems we find our churches in today.
where they know to love thy neighbor, but they don't really know what it means to love thy neighbor.
dispensationalism has reduced the animal down to its bones.
and the meal leaves those who come unnourished.
our nation is the biggest exporter of chemical reproductive medicine in the world, you could call us the greatest distributor, under Obama we made other nations deal with us on the basis of them accepting gay rights and marriage.
where are the prophetic voices of pastors to condemn these evils and speak of its implications on us? --
Ladybug, I share your concern. marriage is sacred, the covenant is sacred, to enter into their wedding process is blasphemy because marriage represents the covenant Christ has with His Church.
we must not give over what is sacred to the world. the problem with differentiating political spheres with moral and religious is that the bible does not distinguish. rather the spiritual is manifested in this physical world.
he also taught at one point that the tribulation Jews would be saved after seeing Jesus with their eyes -- this is due to his dispensational holdouts.
I respect him for his stand in this article, at the same time, when we turn aside from the brethren being persecuted, what good is it to be half way right and then in the end, help the world prosecute the brethren?
scripture would indicate that each persecuted saint is the apple of God's eye, so very precious....and to see their conviction lived out, not just spoken in the safety of the church walls... is a testimony to the world.
apologia on youtube has an interview with one Chrsitian who had been drug through court and I was blessed to hear that he felt the Lord had opened many doors to witness to Christ through this ordeal.
JMac may miss out on such blessings by not being one of those persecuted

with false videos such as you posted that showed a miserable melania frowning and being abused during the inauguration, there's no doubt why one would go there.... but the video was manipulated and untrue.
will you acknowledge this?
there have been 3000 arrests of child rings since he came in, sessions is serious on the things you care about (minus the hemp issue)... and there are many who will do anything to stop people from exposing their trafficking.... even confusing people at home with manipulated photos of melania.
high percentage of people coming illegally through border..... the state is lawless...
some places have the illegals taken over city boards and meetings on how illegal people can manipulate the legal system? politicians openly admitting that illegal family gets free services?.... these same ones advancing agenda 21 initiatives which they then get their buddies into money moving for these initiatives?...
....and even having meetings that are secret, outside of sight of the citizens attached to agenda 21 initiatives...
while many are demanding that the state "return" to mexico....
creating an apartheid environment.
silicon valley loves the lawlessness because their elites have openly stated their goals are depopulation.... a neofuedal system.
see bringing in of islam in schools
see how social media in Europe is used to prosecute concerned citizens about Islamic violence in their cities but ISIS seems to be out in the open with no problem

Christians need to change the laws for more creativity in homeschooling...so communities can come around these families. what happens when one of the spouses dies? or one of the spouse goes rogue and leaves or both have to work because the job the husband trained for is gone? (jobs have been so feminized and socialized it is often easier for the woman to find a job) .... church has to see reality for what it is...many families homeschool until the famous "wellness check" and child becomes autistic and cannot be handled without help...
this is why it is the Body of Christ and not the Bodies of Christ.
not all who have their children in public school do it by volition.
as some in Chinese church has said that putting the kids in their schools can be like a little bit of hell.
JY and I meant it too. It is hard to find work when there is debt and frailty, I know many men in your position and do not find it unique in the least, even more so to cling to Christ and to shed any idols. Good day to you.
John Yurich USA wrote: Filing for bankruptcy would pay off the debts. Can't you grasp it that most of the wages would be garnished to pay off the debts and leave no money to pay rent on an apartment and leave no money for groceries and leave no money for hygiene products. I applied for a job last fall but they did a background check and when they found out that I have debts I did not get the position as the company does not want the wages of their employees to be garnished. No company wants that.
I'm sorry you are going through all of this John Y.

very edifying, in a time when our churches are bringing in cultural Marxism here on the US side.... one really must create that "cell" between them and the Lord, to keep on His PLAN and Purpose and not the WORLDS. the media is so strong here they've created a narrative of reality based on fiction and the "church" is not onto it, generally speaking.
when the communists rolled into Romania, they did so with tanks.
here it is happening and happened but do so with lobbies, chants, university professors, and media.
there are those who are drawn into it, and a growingly aware remnant.
they invite Chinese prosecuted leaders to America, and the weak American leaders speak of how "free" we are and how "easy" it is to live here.... and the Chinese leaders lecture americans on how "easy" it is here....
propulgating the myth, I call the "exemption clause" of the weak, that is that, "I don't have to suffer for the gospel because I'm American"...
I hope our Chinese brethren can see through this as I see Christians suffer here as their "Joel Olsteen's" pontificate their "best life now"...
the Romanian pastors met with their congregations in secret while others
thank you Mr. President for not bowing to the pressure of the globalist bankers to collapse the west and rise up the east.
we know the Satanists are at it full time right now, but we still thank you for doing what you can and our prayers are with the churches who are letting the same movement move right in because they are too afraid to name it.
....which, if they continue, will put themselves on the wrong side of history.
Our God is powerful and mighty and He hears the prayers of the redeemed.
