What sort of legacy are we leaving to our children?

What sort of legacy are we leaving to our children?

What is our history and what is the legacy our forefathers have left us?





The Bible says:

“Do not remove the ancient landmarks which your forefathers have set!

(Proverbs 22:28)

What Has America Become?

by Ken Huber of Tawas City

Editor,

Has American become the land of the double standard?

Let’s see: if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony and if the Congress lies to us it’s just politics; if we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black person dislikes whites, it’s their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work; we all support eh Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

As we look at Washington DC today and the sad state of our economy and government, as Christians we have only ourselves to blame.

Consider for a moment that Obama was elected to office by the American people who voted for him; and according to the polls that have been taken, anywhere from 76 to 86 percent of those people who voted claim themselves to be Christian.

So here we are today, we have a man in the White House who has openly proclaimed to the world right after assuming office that America is no longer a Christian nation (imagine that, and him not even an American citizen); and though he claims himself to be a Christian, his expression of faith in Jesus Christ is at best lukewarm; while out of the other side of his mouth he declares an overwhelming endorsement of Islam, the Koran, and in Allah.

Well, as anyone knows, who knows the Bible, that cannot be… for you cannot worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and at the same time worship a demon god!

For more information on this subject, on what the history is behind Islam and the worship of Allah click here: http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/moongod.htm.

So let’s not be mad at Obama or Congress for being who they are, which are mostly unbelievers and pagans; and as such they are no different than most of us would be, had it not be for the influence of Jesus and the Bible in our life.

As the Bible says, as Christians we ALL are saved by grace (meaning unmerited and undeserved favor), through FAITH, and that not of ourselves, least anyone should boast!

I know personally I have all I have to do in dealing with my own stuff, in the log I have in my own eye (to quote Jesus’ parable), than to even begin worrying about any speck my brother has, or worse, what an unbeliever is doing!

We ALL need to remind ourselves that, as Christian Believers, the ONLY righteousness we have comes from Jesus Christ; and it is our mission to reach out to those people who don’t yet know Him, and that includes politicians.

So these people in DC really don’t need our wrath; but they very much need our prayers; as does every soul who is unsaved.

Even as we can read in the Bible how the Apostle Paul witnessed and prayed for King Agrippa II (read Acts 26), the man who was the son of the Herod Agrippa, who was the one responsible for the killing of all those babies when Jesus was born; after the Wise Men had mentioned to him about the new King and Messiah of Israel!

Also let us not be so naive as to think that the very people who caused our very serious problems, economic and otherwise, or at least did nothing to prevent them, that these very same people are going to be able to fix them; because they won’t… and they can’t!

They don’t have a clue how to fix it, because our root problem is spiritual and moral, not economic.

The Bible clearly teaches that the wisdom of man is foolishness, and without reverence and respect for God and His Word, and this is true for every nation who turns away from God and forsakes His ways and His laws, that what you see happening today in America is what you get.

As the Bible says, “God chastens those whom He loves,” and so God’s chastisement for His wayward children in not to destroy us, but it is to bring us to repentance.

The Bible also tells us that the reason why God chose father Abraham to be the patriarch of Israel and the father of faith is because he would raise his children in the ways of the Lord; and so based on that fact, I think if there is any one reason for this moral decline in our nation, I think it would be in our failure as born-again Christians to pass the mantle or baton of our faith on to succeeding generations, which is also a problem that Israel had quite often, as we can read in the Bible.

So even with Israel, God every so many years had to bring about an adjustment, in the form of some national calamity or disaster, to get Israel’s attention and to call them back to repentance; and by the way, quite often He would use Israel’s enemies to do that.

Likewise, America’s moral decline and slide away from the faith of our forefathers did not just happen overnight either, but we are where we are today because Christians, over the years, have abdicated their responsibility and stewardship in government, and also in the market place.

When Jesus told His disciples to go out into ALL the world and disciple all nations; and to preach the Gospel (Good News) to them about the Kingdom of God; that term “Good News” entails much more than a message of salvation and what happens inside the four walls of our church one day a week on Sundays!

This term that Jesus used, called the “Good News,” was also used by the Romans; because when the Roman soldiers would conquer a new land, they would first send messengers to the conquered people, pronouncing what they called the “Good News,” that there was a new king coming to town, and a new government; and that lawlessness was at an end.

So likewise, when the children of Israel in Jesus’ day heard this message of the “Good News of the Kingdom of God,” to them it meant that the long awaited Messiah was at hand, that would return to them their sovereignty as a nation, and reestablish to them the throne of King David; which had been stripped from them 627 years earlier, by King Nebuchadnezzar.

Most of them had completely missed the prophecies that said Messiah had to first come as our Passover Lamb, to deal with our sin; and then He would come back as the Lion of Judah, to set up His Kingdom.

The fact is, our nation was built on a Judaic/Christian foundation, and as David Barton points out in the above video, even our public school system, when it was first established in America, they used Primers with Bible verses and stories in them, to teach our children how to read and write; so that hopefully they would learn to read the Bible.

The reason our founding fathers did this, was even as father Abraham did, they realized the importance of bringing up our children in the ways of the Lord; because they knew, as they have stated in many of their writings, that the only way we would ever maintain our liberty and freedom, as a Constitutional Republic, would be if the majority of our citizens who vote were themselves committed to and in covenant with the God of the Bible.

However that whole history has all been rewritten and today it is even illegal to teach these Judaic/Christian values in our schools, even though some school districts today are teaching about Islam.

It was also Christians who wrote our Constitution and formed our government, not atheists; and so if you want to know what ails America today, don’t start by looking to the Halls of Congress, and don’t look to the White House either; because our real problem is not in either of those two places; but rather our problem starts on Main Street all across our land, among the citizens of our country.

There is much too much water that has gone under the bridge and our time is running short; for I believe we are today living in the last days, and that we don’t have very long until our Lord will return and set up His Kingdom in the earth.

What we have to be concerned with today is to first pray that even as the Great Awakening that happened (between 1730-60) that affected our founding fathers and our nation, that brought us our Republic and our freedom, we need another one to happen today; for that is the ONLY thing that address the root problem with ALL of mankind, and that is our relationship and love for God, and our relationship and our love for our fellowman.

That is our ONLY hope for our nation today, bar none; that God will have mercy on us and that He will allow us to restore our Republic and to preserve our freedom.  That is also what gives us the ability to freely preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to this world too.

As David Barton pointed out it is only in a Christian nation that those rights are protected for ALL people, regardless of what faith they have or what god they believe in and serve. That’s not so in a secular government, or in governments of other types of religions and faiths, who are not Christian based.

As Elijah on Mt. Carmel, who was but one man, who was facing all the priests of Baal; he just said you go ahead and do your thing; but afterwards just give me time to do mine; and we shall see which of the two, Baal or Jehovah God is the one true God.  By the way, Baal worship is the origin behind what we call Islam today, which involves the worship of the moon god–hence the crescent moon that is the insignia of Islam today.

It is our freedom that has given us the privilege and ability to take the Gospel to the world unhindered by our government; but given the present trend and mood in this administration and in congress today, that freedom is now in question, as is our Constitution.

Which leads me to the topic regarding the importance of our restoring our Constitutional Republic; and on that subject, if you haven’t already done so, please go ahead and registered on this website, and please do so today: (http://republicoftheunitedstates.org/).

This move to restore our original “organic” constitution and our republic  has already begun in all 50 states and is today progressing, as we are today setting up a legal Constitutional government, that will function as a Republic, just as our forefathers intended, and not as a CORPORATION, as it is today, which is TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

This movement, by the way, has also been endorsed (at last count that I heard) by some 86 countries around the world, though our news media here at home has remained silent.

Obviously these other countries can see the handwriting on the wall for the UNITED STATES CORPORATION and if the U.S Federal Reserve Note fails, as it will because it is worthless and is only fiat currency, then they know that they will be next.

We have but two choices today, as someone has so aptly stated, and that is once the U.S. CORPORATION fails, which it inevitably will and which I believe is in the plan of this present administration, in order to force us into this Globalist “New World Order;” at that point, we will have two alternatives, either we will get both the bayonet and the boot of martial law, and we can kiss both our Constitution and our liberties good bye; or we get the pillow of the Restored Republic, that has already been established and in place, ready to take over.

Question is, which one do you want to see happen?

I can tell you this, that former President Bush, the Clintons, and also George H.W. Bush Sr., all of these people have been working and are still working until this today, on behalf of the Globalist International Bankers, to force our nation into their “New World Order, ” which will ultimately become the One World Government, that we read of in the Bible, in Revelation 13, that will be ruled by the Antichrist; and as Christians and students of the Bible we all know what that means for our country.

I for one DO NOT want to see that happen to the country I love. How about you?

So consequently what we have to do, we must do quickly

Let us all continue to watch and pray for our country, and also let’s pray for that revival too.

Shalom,

Skip Barland
