Blog #11 - The Silent Majority
When I say the majority, I’m not referring to the world but the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The majority of the church seems to be silent today about what is going on in our nation and the world. It seems to me that the majority of the church, (and a vast majority), expects to go to church and get some warm fuzzy message that makes them feel good and certainly not uncomfortable. They think preachers should never say or preach anything about governments because in the church we have many different political beliefs. And, why is that? They think the church is not the place for such talk. And, why is the church so divided on what is right and wrong? Simply because the majority have forsaken the Word. If we were in sync with the Word the church would not have so many different beliefs. And, I believe the church for the most part has accepted the notion of “separation of church and state” which is total hogwash. There is no such law on the books, especially not God’s book.
Eph. 5:17 instructs us to “be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”. Why can't we understand that the Lord is concerned about nations and countries and what is going on in these countries? And especially ours. Not just the Middle East. Sure God is concerned about Israel but that's just a very small group of people compared to all the nations of the earth. Sure there is the natural branch but there is also the wild branch which was grafted in to the olive tree. Galatians calls the church the Israel of God which is made up of the Jew and the Gentile. And, you cannot talk about end time events without talking about governments.
Let me tell you something about myself. First I am a Christian and then I am also a pastor. I have laid down my life for the gospel and for the people. I will fight for the children of God. If I had to I suppose I would even lay down my life physically for the “brethren”. But, I am also a patriot. I love my country and I am broken hearted about what has happened in our country. And, what is a patriot? A person who loves and strongly supports and will even fight for his or her country. Why even Maine and Massachusetts observe the 3rd Monday of April as Patriots Day. I also believe in the rights of the ordinary people as long as it does not defy the Word of God. I guess that would make me a populist, also. I do not accept the premise of some established elite group of people lording over the people. Jesus told his church to “occupy till he comes”. I also believe that the US is to be a free and independent nation and completely in control of its own affairs. I guess that would make me a “nationalist”. Any talk of Globalism only refers to a one world government and that is the government of the Antichrist which will be ruled by one man. Just read the book and you will see. The only man I trust to do that is Jesus Christ himself. I do look forward to that one world government Which we are told, the Church will rule with him.
Alright, what is my point? I stood up for God and country in the last administration and it cost me. I was judged falsely and called names and forsaken by many. Then, we finally get a man in the presidency who seems to fight for our country and God and the Church and immediately I lose more and the man hasn't even taken office, yet. I can't wrap my brain around it. What do “Christians” stand for? Hillary? I say, Lock her up! I'm not glorifying Hitler but listen to what he said, “How fortunate for leaders that the people they minister to don't think”. And, he used that for his diabolical plans. What are christians thinking? I guess, “How to win friends and influence people”. That may be good for your business but not for your Christian values or church. It gives you no place to make a stand for God or truth. Where is your fight (of faith) church? Where is your patriotism for truth? It's time to make a stand. Stand up for truth and fight for our country as long as we can. I believe and make a stand for Truth, Justice, and the American way as long as it's in line with the Word. That was not the mantra or guiding principles of the last administration. How can believers even think of voting for such people that have practically destroyed our nation? It's called “backsliding”! We need to repent and not be Silent any longer. Can you say, “Amen”?
