Great Sermon! Hello Pastor John,
this sermon is a spiritual, nutrional main stay, truly a Blessing!
Psalm 80:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
I thank Christ Jesus for everything, God the Father for every good thing and God the Holy Ghost for his comfort, Amen
Great Sermon! Thank you for such an edifying message, Pastor Weaver. During these troubled times, we are so thankful for your preaching and teaching. I found a quote from a book we have about the Southern Confederacy, and I had to share it here, because this sermon reminded me of it. God bless you and much love to you and yours in Christ Jesus
"Look at the South until you are filled with the love of her, and when you are filled with her greatness, reflect that it was acquired by men of daring who knew their duty and feared dishonor in the hour of action. All alike gave their lives and received praise which grows not old. I speak not so much of that in which their remains are laid as of that in which their glory survives to be remembered forever, on every fitting occasion in word and deed. There are monuments and graves for famous men, but the memorials we speak of today are not so much engraved in stone as in the hearts of men." ~ Dana Sheppard
States' Rights: Slaughtered at Appomattox The ruination of states' rights was stated by Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase on a year after the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox. Salmon P. Chase said that, "State's rights died at Appomattox." What Salmon P. Chase was saying was that the surrender of the Confederacy at Appomattox on 09 April, 1865 was the nail in the coffin to local sovereignty through state's rights. The erasure of state's rights on 09 April, 1865 resulted in the centralization of power in Washington, D.C. The fact is that state's rights was meant to restrain any power grab by the federal government intended on expanding the scope of influence in Washington D.C.
Centralized Power: Power To The Bad Guys As this sermon makes evident, any time that political power becomes centralized at the expense of segmented power, the bad guys win by default. This was evident in the American Civil War (12 April, 1861 â€“ 09 April, 1865), World War I (28 July, 1914 â€“ 11 November, 1918), World War II (01 September, 1939 â€“ 02 September, 1945) and the Cold War (1947 â€“ 1991).
Stumbling Blocks to Centralized Power Just as the Yankees referred to Confederates as "rebels" for defending local sovereignty through states' rights, so the globalists refer to defenders of national and local sovereignty as "rebels". In the minds of centralized power brokers, those who favor segmented power over centralized power would be referred to as "rebels". All of this shows that segmented power is intended on being a stumbling block to centralized power.
A Sermon About The Facts of Dixie The reason why Yankees referred to Confederates as "rebels" is because these "rebels" stood for states' rights. However, it is an evident fact of history that the Dixie Confederacy was a greater defender of our constitutional liberties than the Union ever was. Indeed the Yankees thought of the Confederates as outlaws, but only because these outlaws defended states' rights and personal liberty, something which the Yankee Union was not a defender of.
Abraham Lincoln: Admired by Adolf Hitler Here is historical proof from writings that Adolf Hitler admired Abraham Lincoln. In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler said that, â€śThe individual states of the American Union . . . could not have possessed any state sovereignty of their own. For it was not these states that formed the Union, on the contrary it was the Union which formed a great part of such so-called states.â€ť This was consistent with the statement made by Abraham Lincoln on his First Inaugural Address saying, â€śThe Union is much older than the Constitution. It was formed in fact, by the Articles of Association in 1774. It was matured and continued by the Declaration of Independence . . . by the Articles of Confederation in 1778 . . . and establishing the Constitution. . . . It follows from these views that no State, upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union . . .â€ť These quotes show that Abraham Lincoln and Adolf Hitler had a lot in common.
Local Sovereignty: A Stumbling Block Republican Union officer, Col. Robert Ingersoll said that, â€śThe great stumbling block, the great obstruction in Lincolnâ€™s way and in the way of thousands was the old doctrine of Stateâ€™s Rights.â€ť This sermon shows why local sovereignty is a stumbling block to national centralization of power just as local and national sovereignty is a stumbling block is a stumbling block to the regional and global centralization of power.
Finally!! I have been watching Pastor Weaver's sermons on YouTube for awhile now. I have been looking and waiting for the 14th one in this series. It still wasn't out on YouTube today. I have at least 100 of his sermons saved on there. But in one of the older sermons of Mr. Weavers I was watching on there today he mentioned this sermon site. And Bam it was here. And I found many more I didn't know he had on this site. I am excited he said something about this site.. What a blessing Pastor Weaver's sermons have been to me. I am looking forward to hearing all the ones I haven't. Please let Pastor Weaver know that I am appreciative of the way he explains and expands so many things in Gods word and how he keeps it so honest. There are some crazy videos online. It's been a blessing to find a real man of God that's about Truth and Teaching and the ible not money.. I'm in a wheelchair and it's hard to go into church and sit thru a sermon most times with my pain. So I looked a long time to find someone like Pastor Weaver online to learn from. I'm blessed and thankful for his teachings. I feel I have grown in my faith and knowledge since finding his teachings. Thank you and God's blessings. Reanell
Great Sermon! Here I am listening to this message for the first time 13 yrs. later and EVERYTHING has happened as you warned!! Things are far worse and for the life of me, I don't understand why we,the people, are willing to just stand by and watch this country implode! So many of our politicians do NOT have our welfare at heart. All I know is if America goes down, the whole world goes down.Even so, come LORD JESUS!
Yankee Hypocrisy Defeated by One Sermon This sermon defeats Yankee hypocrisy in terms of historical facts. There was far more slavery of people of Sub Saharan African descent under the Yankee flag than under the Confederate Flag. The ownership of slaves of Sub Saharan African descent under the Yankee flag dates can also be traced to the days of George Washington. It is ironic how the Yankee founding fathers like George Washington, professed liberty, but denied liberty to slaves of Sub Saharan African descent. This shows that the Yankee history is one rife with hypocrisy and irony. Even though we appreciate the liberties provided to use by the Constitution, the fact is that the founding fathers were not the heroes that people believe that they are. This means that many of the US presidents of the past like Millard Fillmore were the real bad guys. Because Washington DC has become highly centralized at the expense of local and state authority, there is little, if not, no doubt, that the present day US presidents show themselves to be more villainous than heroic in character.
Centralized Power: The Ends Justify The Means This sermon shows why centralized power is defined by the slogan, "the ends justify the means." To people who push for centralized power, the ends justify the means, but the means of reaching those ends are always wrong.
Confederate Flag: Symbol of Segmentation This sermon shows why the Confederate Flag is in fact a symbol of segmentation of power as well as being a symbol of the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. As we know, the 10th Amendment of the Constitution reads, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." There are versions of state's rights in other countries like Canadian provincial rights. Once again, this sermon shows why segmentation of power, not centralization of power, is the way to go. Also, remember Genesis 11:1-9 in which Jehovah scattered the builders of the Tower of Babel. While there is a push by today's political bureaucrats to centralize power, this push to centralize power, even on a global level, is about preparing the world for the coming Antichrist.
