Read at Your Own Peril

The Public ‘Prayers’ of the Facebook Faithful, in a nutshell:

Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, but lean on social media and conspiracy theories for your understanding.

Not Your will but mine be done.

If My people, who are called by My name, will humble others through shame, rhetoric and threats, and pray and seek My face and turn others from their wicked liberal ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive the world’s sin and will heal their land.

Vengeance is mine. Period.

My rights, my body (concerning masks)

The Word of the Lord:

Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool. -Proverbs 10:18

He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.- Job 2:10

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to TEST you, as though something strange were happening to you. But REJOICE inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted BECAUSE of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should NOT be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or EVEN as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to BEGIN with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? -1 Peter 4:12‭-‬17

God changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.- Daniel 2:21

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name …and will deceive many. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the Love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. – Matthew 24:4‭-‬5‭, ‬11‭-‬13

Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs. – Proverbs 10:12

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. – Revelation 2:4

And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son?
It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastens everyone He accepts as His son.”
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as His children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and EVERYONE undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. – Hebrews 12:5‭-‬8

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the church. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. – Revelation 2:7

The Political Circus

For my Christian friends: I cannot keep silent concerning the republican candidates and the past few series of endorsements. Please forgive me and be nice.

I sense that these endorsements and poll numbers represent a “revenge” vote. Anger over the past few years has created hate and fear that demands punishment. I pray that believers will realize that is NOT the heart of God and vote, not against political correctness, but for spiritual correctness, which is not mere words but always walks in Love. I pray that everyone else will realize that revenge always has unintended consequences (ask Robespierre.)

The vote should be about who is most qualified to lead this country, make decisions over the lives of individuals in the military (they are people not the borg), find a way to move forward honestly and peacefully in the midst of a chaotic world. We do not need a Barnum or Bailey.

Once again, for believers, blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. Not a political party, or a system, or horses and chariots, or even the president, but the Lord, YHWH. So the responsibility for a nation’s blessings comes down to a people who believe that when they seek, they will find; when they pray, they will be heard; when they repent, they will be cleansed; when they Love they will indeed spread God’s Light. And His Love and Light are needed right now more than ever.
