Judgment must begin at the household of God…

Judgment must begin at the household of God…

1 Pet 4:17

For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God

Below is an article from WorldNetDaily, entitled: It’s time to impeach Obama for high crimes against U.S!

This is a serious problem, in our country today, that was originally founded by mostly Christian men and women; where we have long since strayed from our path, and have removed the moral boundaries, and requirements set forth by God, that have been set by our founding father’s covenant which they made with God.

However, for those who have yet to even have a relationship with God, in our present culture, any message that references the necessity of our modeling our lives and conforming and reprogramming our minds, through reflection and meditation upon the Holy Bible, as the inerrant Word of God (meaning without error, as written in the original tongues), any talk of this kind is but a fallacious argument; and to those people who have yet to be Born-again through the Holy Spirit, any such talk seems as foolishness to them!

Hence we have a man sitting in the White House today who has openly ridiculed portions of the Bible; and has even mocked the Sermon on the Mount, and yet he calls himself a Christian! I don’t think so.

While at the same time he has referenced the Koran many times publically as the “Holy Koran!” While at the same time in most every speech he continues to speak more as a Muslim; and certainly he seems to champion their cause, even at the risk of exposing the duplicity of his supposed Christian faith.

Well the Bible says that we can’t serve the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the god of this world; and nor can we serve a demon god called Allah either!!!

The message of the Bible is very clear, in Romans 3:23: For all have sinned (and have missed the mark of God’s requirements for salvation)!

All roads and all religions DO NOT lead to salvation and reconciliation with God, as both Obama and Bush have publicly confessed!

To believe such a thing even contradicts the words of Jesus, who is the Creator of ALL things, where He said He was the ONLY way, the ONLY truth, and the ONLY source of life!!!

God is sovereign and as members of His Creation we need a road map and instructions as to what He requires of us… and we find that in the covenant or contract, which He left for us, and that is the Bible!

However for the skeptical person, of all those who would doubt that to be true, God has provided ample proof, in the many prophecies that are contained in Bible, which are without error; and also there any number of other things; but all of these things require that we take the time to read it, in order to discover them.

One message that we find there is that as members of the human race, of those who are of the seed of Adam, we have nowhere from which to boast, because unless we make our peace with God through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross of Calvary, there is NO avenue for reconciliation with God; and that is not an opinion, but it is the message of the Gospel and of the Kingdom of Heaven, which Jesus came to earth to preach, to all mankind!

The Bible also says: For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Pet 4:17)

Our government was originally set up as a Constitutional Republic, that was modeled after the Holy Bible.

This was done at a time when the Great Awakening happened (between 1730-60), and that revival had a definite affect on the formation of our government!

Since that time Christians have abdicated any major positions in government and have allowed people who have no relationship or experience with the God of the Bible, who don’t even respect the Christian faith, nor the Bible, to come in and set up shop!

The results are everything you see all around you today; in that we have our country positioned on a slippery slope, as our morals and everything else are spiraling down the drain of history!

Well the road home, according to God’s operations manual, the Bible, starts as Christians take the ball and begin, and take responsibity by humbling ourselves and praying; as we turn from OUR wicked ways and repent (and in the Greek repent means literally to change the way we think); and then as we begin to seek after God’s face (meaning seeking relationship before anything else); then and only then can we expect God to heal our land!

In the mean time, as would happen in any family, when you have outsiders calling the shots, and making laws and are governing what goes on inside your household, which for the purpose of this analogy is our government, then the Bible calls that an “unequally yoked” situation; and such is the case with not only this Obama Administration; but it has been true of many other Administrations of the past as well… in both Democratic and Republican!

The point is we cannot rebuild our nation without we first start at the foundation, and rebuild on a foundation of Truth, and true repentance!

Folks it is impossible for us to do that as long as we remain in an unequally yoked situation, as we are today!

So whereas judgment of necessity must begin in our house, in the household of God, as we repent and see to our individual relationship with God; we cannot just stop there and expect a pagan unbelieving government is going to do any different than they have always done.

If we are going to turn our nation around, then we, as citizens of this great nation, must demand accountability from our government officials; because it falls to us, “We the People,” to do so and to hold our politicians (who are not our masters, by the way, as some think they are; but they are our employees).

For that to happen, however, it is our responsibility to hold them accountable before our Constitution, and also a court of law; for all their self-serving, corrupt, and illegal behavior (where they have exceeded their powers; and have taken to themselves powers not granted to them by the Constitution; and have therefore violated an oath which they all took before taking office, to preserve, protect, and to defend our U.S. Constitution!

If we don’t do this, folks, then pray tell who else will?

Our country today is in a serious crisis, where our very future is in question; and we have no where to look but to ourselves, as citizens of this nation, as to who is the blame; because we still have a vote, and it is we who elected these people into office… so the buck stops with us!

And so does the road home… which starts on our knees, in repentance!

Shalom,

TAKING AMERICA BACK 2010

‘It’s time to impeach Obama for high crimes against U.S.’

President blasted as a Christianity-hating tyrant ‘working that anvil right now forging our chains’

MIAMI – An urgent plea to impeach a “Christianity-hating” President Obama for alleged “high crimes and misdemeanors” was issued today at the start of WND’s “Taking America Back Conference” in South Florida.

The call was announced by Floyd Brown, president of the Western Center for Journalism, who asserted in strong terms the commander in chief is deliberately trying to destroy the principles on which the U.S. was founded.

“The Obama presidency is a disease,” said Brown. “Article 2, Section 4 (the impeachment clause of the Constitution) is the cure. And it’s Obama’s hatred of America that makes it absolutely imperative that we take action now.”

“Barack Hussein Obama is not some do-gooder that has had his plans go astray,” Brown added. “He is not a person of good will just trying his best to make America go the right direction. He is not. Barack Hussein Obama is a liar that absolutely knows what he’s doing to the United States of America. He has a plan. He has an agenda. This man knows exactly where he’s taking us.”

A political innovator, writer and speaker, Brown is now running an online campaign to impeach the president.

“Barack Obama is a very dangerous man,” said Brown. “Over the last two years, we have been watching the slow progression of what I call a bloodless coup.”

Read all about the grounds for impeachment.

“For the international socialist movement of which Barack Obama is a card-carrying member,” he added, “the U.S. must be brought to its knees, and I guarantee you that Barack Hussein Obama is doing everything he can to bring the country to its knees. He wants to bring it to its knees.”

Brown warned that a counterculture has risen up, dividing America.

“They don’t have the same respect for you as an individual and personal property, and these traditional ideas in the Constitution. That’s why they’re at war with the Constitution. Everything our forefathers fought and died for to them is just trash to be thrown out on Monday morning.”

Brown responded to a common question about what specifically the president has done that rises to the level of impeachment by recalling President Gerald Ford in the 1970s, who indicated an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at any given moment in history.

The U.S. Constitution states a president can be impeached for treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Brown said the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” essentially means “bad behavior.”

He went through a list of what he considered bad behavior, saying Obama has “nationalized the banks. He nationalized GM and Chrysler. He’s attacked the 2nd Amendment. He’s taken over health care. He wants cap and trade legislation, so he literally taxes the air that you breathe. We breathe out CO2. He appointed czars to control your life without congressional oversight. He apologizes for us abroad. I find it personally offensive that he would apologize for this great land.”

Brown said the president has committed actual crimes, including offering jobs in exchange for political favors; firing Inspector General Gerald Walpin who was investigating Obama friend Kevin Johnson for allegedly misusing funds; and is now actively trying to bankrupt America, adding more to the national deficit in nine months than in the first 200 years of U.S. history.

He noted the Congressional Budget Office has warned that unless Obama can control his appetite for deficit spending, accumulated debt could spark a U.S. fiscal crisis similar to recent ones in Greece and Ireland.

Brown then turned to matters of faith, and blasted Obama’s contention that he’s a Christian.

“Obama hates Christianity,” Brown declared. “He is a Muslim. Others will say he’s just a godless atheist. The bottom line is that this man hates Christianity.”

He said at Georgetown University, Obama forced the school to cover the name of Jesus on the podium, and he paraphrased the president’s comments suggesting the U.S. was no longer a Christian nation, but could now be considered a Muslim nation.

“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of non-believers,” Obama stated.

“He said it!” exclaimed Brown. “Have you read about it in the New York Times, the Washington Post, or the Wall Street Journal? There is a conspiracy of silence in the mainstream media to cover up this man’s hatred of Christianity.”

He quoted American leaders of the past, including President Andrew Jackson, who called the Bible “the rock upon which our republic rests,” and Patrick Henry, who said, “It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains.”

“Obama is that tyrant and he’s working that anvil right now of forging our chains,” said Brown.

Brown admitted that there would have to be a change in the leadership of Congress in the upcoming November elections to make impeachment a reality, but said the issue was pressing.

“Do we wait until he’s totally ripped our country apart?” Brown asked.

He closed by invoking President Ronald Reagan, who was noted for saying, “If not us, then who? If not now, when?”

The “Taking America Back Conference” is a three-day event taking place at the Doral Resort in Miami, and includes dozens of speakers including U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., former presidential candidates Alan Keyes and Tom Tancredo, and authors Jerome Corsi, Aaron Klein and David Kupelian.

Other speakers include scientist and Bible teacher Chuck Missler; talk-show host Rusty Humphries, Michael Farris of Home School Legal Defense Association; Robert Knight and Jerry Newcombe of Coral Ridge Ministries; William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition and son of notorious atheist Madeline Murray O’Hair; RC Sproul, Jr., author of “Biblical Economics”; “Saturday Night Live” alum Victoria Jackson, author-columnist Erik Rush and author Judith Reisman.
