|PUT GOD BACK IN THE SCHOOLS AND INPUBLIC PLACES
I’m offended that the words "politically correct" are upon
us. And I’m offended that Christians, whose Bible influenced those who built this nation, are among the politically
incorrect. Our beliefs are ridiculed and erased from public view wherever unbelievers find it possible.
Those who are offended by the Ten Commandments are guilty
of them, because to break even one make them guilty of all (James 2:10). One of our leaders has said he’s a Christian,
but his very acts deny it. Christ Himself, in Matthew 7:22-23 says, "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord…and
then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
The kings (leaders) of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together;
against the Lord, and against His anointed…but He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them
in derision (Psalms 2:2-4).
who ridicule and neglect Christ are having their day, but there’ll be no mercy on Judgment Day; it will also have had
its day and those who have hounded those who believe in God and His Son will find themselves in hell…yes, as they jokingly
say now, "with their friends."
O’Hair…one person…was "offended," and got prayer taken out of our schools. One of her quotes
was, "I want three words (on my tombstone); woman, atheist, anarchist. She was murdered and her body was found in a
shallow grave, but her soul is in an even worse place. And God will stand only so much of what’s going on in the world
today. At a time of His choosing, He’ll say, "enough," and Jehovah God and His Son, Jesus Christ, will divide
those whose Bible teaches love, from those whose bible teaches hate, and each group will receive its reward.
But the fearful, and unbelieving…shall have their part
in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone" (Revelation 21:8). Choose rightly.
I’ve noticed that some of my Conquest articles have taken on a new complexion since my wife
went to her new home. I don’t feel the same about passing from this life to the next. I like to use the
term “The Promise” that the Lord gives to everyone…that Christians will immediately be with loved
ones who’ve gone on, when our turn comes.
King David used that consolation we see in 2nd Samuel 12:23,
after his son by Bathsheba died; “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” And of course Jesus
showed the same comfort to us, as He hung on the Cross, when he told the thief hanging beside Him, who had become a believer
there, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
I’ve written about that in an earlier article, but for those of you who didn’t see it, I’ll give
my interpretation of those words by Christ. “Today” means now…assuring us that we won’t be
put in a waiting area until some time in the future. And “shalt thou be with me” means that He will go to
the same place with this person who’s dying at His side.
And the Bible clearly shows that the word “Paradise” and
“Heaven” are the same place. Revelation 2:7 is enough to convince us: “He who has an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which
is in the paradise of God.” And the tree of life serves double duty, also indicating that we’ll eat the
best of foods in Heaven.
The only ones who
should fear death, are those of you who haven’t given your heart to the Lord. I beg you to take care of that,
at this very moment. It’s the only time you’re guaranteed.
