Why Does Man Seek To Make God In His Own Image

There was a time when men would seek God by searching the Scriptures. Men would humble themselves and submit to the will of God as they discovered the thoughts of God within the Bible. Men would re-direct their lives based on what the Word of God said and if that Word conflicted with what men believed, the beliefs of men would change.

America was a haven for those who sought the true living God; because in America, God was still on the throne. Refugees of God dishonoring nations would kiss the ground of the United States, because not only could they freely worship the Almighty, they knew that God blessed America. God always blessed nations which respect and honor Him, but curses await nations that dishonor the Almighty.

Today, America is approaching the edge of destruction. Yet she claims to still “love” God? Unfortunately the god she loves is not the one revealed in the Bible. This god was formed in the reprobate minds of men, seeking to fashion a god from their fleshly desires.

This god has the appearance of the Biblical God, but manifests the power of Satan. His followers avoid Scriptures which denounce homosexuality, fornication, adultery, divination, sorcery, damnation and other perversions. He promoted beliefs which are completely antithetical to the biblically revealed will of God.

This god honors the logical concepts of man and the prevailing wisdom of the lost masses. This god has always demanded the destruction of biblical marriage. He views abortion as a choice to be “enjoyed” by all and proudly proclaimed throughout the nation. Whereas, the biblical God forms the unborn in the womb, this god rips them out of the womb.

This god alters and minimizes the Word of God, just like he did in offering the fruit to Eve. He seduces all who listens to him and gives them false assurances. He convinces them to NOT read the Bible regularly or submissively, but to read it sparingly and within ‘limits”. He wants people in the church house, but he doesn’t want the church inside people. His strength is in the large numbers he convinces. By gathering and sharing is mutual destruction, they convince each other that what they believe is good and acceptable.

Prov 3:5-8
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. (KJV)

It is not too late for America. God is merciful and He listens to the cries of His children. But He will not be mocked. America must fall on her knees and repent! If we fail to acknowledge the Almighty with truth and righteousness, we will pay the price all other nations paid which turned away from Him. He cannot spare America and remain true to Himself.

I call on all believers to seek God. Pray for America. Turn away from satanic influenced beliefs and practices. Turn away for marginalized worship. Turn away from “partially” serving God. We must show God how we really feel about Him. Let’s give Him all we have; because He already gave His all to us. How can we do any less?

One Flesh

One flesh he calls it. One flesh it’s been since our time in eternity.

Two became one. Bone to bone, flesh to flesh, the foundation of life, the example of love, holy, honorable and ordained from above.

When two become one, they are never apart. Though their bodies are un-joined, their hearts beat the same. Their minds think different thoughts and yet united they remain.

The miracle of marriage is not the vows, license or seal; it’s the power of God that makes it real!

The enemy hates God and he hates man. Death and destruction has always been his plan. He said he wants to be like the Most High. Rest assured that this one time he didn’t lie.

The enemy is defeated, even this he knows is true, yet he will still if allowed, make fools out of me and you.

Since he is condemned to eternal torment with his entire horde, he wants all of us to join the discord.

His plans are very subtle, some think logically sound. He uses all available tools to bring man down. A plan many cannot see due to lust, idolatry and greed.

He places the lost, naive and foolish on the frontlines, demanding imaginary rights. Since when has a man the right to be a woman or a woman the right to be a man? He makes the truth hard to understand.

His legions pound on politicians demanding a new call: calls for perverted justice and false liberty for all. They write evils laws which never stand, because the people reject them time and time again.

So they found judges who abandoned their rightful place, and took it upon themselves to decide our fate. Unconstitutional they said with the swipe of a pen and committed an eternal sin.

Have they become Gods? Are we do what they say? Shall we forsake Christ and do it man’s way? Never will we bow at Satan’s feet. Neither submit to the other enemies we meet. We’ll stay clear of Satan’s path and all other lining up for God’s wrath.

One flesh he calls it and one flesh it remains. Counterfeits and liars are playing a losing game. They think they’ll be normal if they gain the name. Satan feeds them false hope and security, but marriage is only marriage if God ordains.

True happiness is the gift of living God’s way. Man and woman were meant to be one. One flesh he calls it. One flesh it’s been since eternity began. One flesh it will be until he comes again.

What are you, Canaanite or Christian?

You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices. Lev 18:3 (NIV)

When God brought the Jews out of Egypt, He warned them to avoid the practices of the people in the land He was giving them. The ten plagues and the forty year trek to the promise land are well known to Christians. Less discussed is why that land was made available.

The 400 years of Jewish captivity was also 400 years in which the Canaanites could have turned away from their evil ways. During the harsh years of captivity, the Jewish people petitioned God for deliverance; whereas, the Canaanites engaged in every vile detestable form of perversion the human mind could devise. Unbridled sexual sin didn’t satisfy the principalities and powers ruling over the minds of Canaanites. It took the death of first born Canaanite babies to appease the palate of Molech.

Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. Lev 18:21 (NIV)

With the discovery of the Ugarit tablets, we have a greater understanding of why God demanded the destruction of Canaanites. Like the Israelites, they were herdsmen and farmers depended on the land. They believed that human sacrifices are required to have fertile crops, animals and people; therefore, they willingly killed their first born. “The children were to be offered without any display of emotion. Should such a display be made, then the sacrifice was worthless.”

Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. Lev 18:24-25 (NIV)

The failure of the Jewish people to completely destroy all of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites resulted in a seduction of the Jewish people away from the Lord. They started to engage in the evil practices of the inhabitants. By ignoring God’s warning, they created problems which ultimately got them cast out of the land until 1948!

You may ask how stupid could they have been to witness the miracles of God, receive His blessing and still allow themselves to worship false gods and sacrifice their children? I suppose it could be the same reason that we Americans ignore the blessing we have. God gave us a land filled with Milk and Honey and unlimited resources. He filled the land with people from all over the world. He in trusted us with the greatest country in the world and we are behaving like Canaanites!

It is estimated that we have murdered over 54,000,000 babies inside the sanctuary God created to nourish them. We continue to do this without remorse. We do not allow public protest of this sin on the airwaves. It is not polite or politically correct to complain about this procedure. After all, it is a woman’s right to choose! We probably sacrifice our unborn more efficiently than the Canaanites did. While many “real” Christians protest this evil, there are “so-called” Christians who walk into churches every Sunday praising “some god” with hands held high, while quietly supporting the ongoing slaughter of innocents.

We allow our young to be taught in schools that unmarried sex is fine as long as a condom separates them from the other person. It matters little if that person is male or female. The time may come when the age of the other person will no longer matter. Marriage is no longer required; however, if one is to marry, they can marry male or female. The president said the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. He ordered the attorney general to stop defending the law. Many states are allowing same sex couple to engage in what they call “marriage”. While real bible believers are against ungodly unions, you can always find certain so-called “ministers” ready to justify it.

The United States was created by the sovereign grace of the Almighty. This country was a blessing to the world and a beacon of hope and light. Godly hope has faded and the light of a once righteous nation has dimmed. America is slipping into the pit, and needs to repent NOW! God gave the Canaanites 400 years. They didn’t repent and the land vomited them out. America has already used up 236 years. I doubt if God will give us another 164 years, before the land vomits us out!

Christianity versus Political Idolatry

I asked ten members of my black, democratic Christian family members to participate in a small survey. The survey was a test of loyalty, but loyalty to whom? The survey consisted of the following questions:
1. Are you a Christian? If the answer is no please stop. If the answer is yes please continue.
2. Do you believe that abortion and homosexually are sins against God and man? If the answer is no, please state why they are not and then stop. If the answer is yes, please continue.
3. Did you vote for President Obama and other politicians that support abortion and homosexual relationships? If the answer is no stop. If the answer is yes, the final questions are as follows:
4. Why would you vote for people that openly support evils that God condemns when you could have voted for people that supports God’s values?
The survey responses are followed by my comments and commentaries on the responses.
M: I’m a Baptist cuz. I tell everyone I love them.
Sam: I do not understand your response, but thanks anyway.
Commentary: He did not answer any questions. He seems to be a fence sitter. He doesn’t want to offend anyone. Maybe he doesn’t know that Jesus came specifically to separate believers from unbelievers.
Matt 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. (KJV)

L: Yes, yes, I (not God) wanted to see a black man in the office as president of the United States.
Sam: That’s an honest answer.
Commentary: While L shared his true reason, he hasn’t explained why he votes against his beliefs. He claims to be adamantly against abortion and homosexuality. I do not believe that his decisions are based solely on voting for Mr. Obama. If that were the case, he would not vote for other pro-abortion and pro-homosexual politicians. L has been voting against his interest before President Obama came on the scene. No L also seems to be seated on the fence. He apparently doesn’t understand that fence sitters in up with splinters in their posteriors.
Rev 3:15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.16 “So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. (NKJ)

J: I think that a lot of people voted for Obama including me because he is the first black President. God does forbid homosexuality but he is also a forgiving god and we are not to judge.
Sam: If you’d like, I can give you some insights on the judging thing. But I do have a follow up question. Isn’t repentance required before forgiveness? J did not respond to my follow up question.
Commentary: J spoke of God’s forgiveness, but never responded to my inquiry about repentance. She knows that Mr. Obama still holds anti-godly moral positions and has no intention of abandoning them. She apparently has no problem voting for politicians who support ungodly policies.
She also fails to understand the biblical principles of judging. How did she come to the conclusion that I was judging the president? How do you determine biblical fruit?
Matt 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? (NKJ)

S: Yes, yes, I voted for Obama and honestly I voted for him not knowing that he supported either on those issues.
Sam: I did not ask S a follow up question.
Commentary: I wonder how S will vote in the future now that she knows what she knows. If given a choice, will she vote for the prolife and traditional marriage candidates?
B. I truly love you, but we are not having this conversation.

Sam: I did not ask B a follow up question, because my survey was not welcome.

Commentary: How can a loyal faithful Christian refuse to discuss the will, teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ? Which Jesus is she following?

Matt 10:33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. (NIV)

D. Yes, yes. No I did not vote.

Sam: D was a senior in college at the time. He was pre-occupied with his academics.

Commentary: Like many young men and women, D is trying to find his place in the world. He has definite prolife and anti-homosexual opinions, but he is not politically astute. Once he decides to venture into the political process, hopefully his moral compass will guide his political decisions

JE. Yes, yes, yes. I believed the whole hype about the first African-American President, and promises of a better economy sounded very promising for me living in poverty. I realize now that I should have educated myself more before deciding so quickly, because I want to be sure that my morals and ethics align with who I vote for.

Commentary: The failure of President Obama’s economic policies caused JE to reconsider her vote. But what if those policies produced a robust economy? Would she still reconsider her decision? Would she still make sure that her morals and ethics agreed with her vote?

If we are firmly grounded and rooted in the word of God, neither good nor bad economies will influence our decision. Our decisions will be based solely on our understanding of God’s will.

Deut 6: These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. (NIV)

No responses were received from Sh, R or G.

My short unscientific family survey provided some interesting insights:

1. One member voted for politicians who support abortion and homosexuality without knowing their position on practices. Therefore, 10% voted against God out of ignorance.

2. One member did not vote, but claims to hold a strong pro-life and anti-homosexuality position. Therefore, 10% did not vote against the will of God.

3. One member knowingly voted for politicians who advocate policies against God, because of promises of prosperity. This member belatedly regrets the vote. Therefore 10% voted against God out of greed or perceived necessity.

4. One refused to discuss the issue. Another obfuscated by claiming universal love. Three others never responded to the survey. Therefore 50% of my professing Christian family members surveyed would not present a witness to Christ.

5. Two proudly defended their presidential votes based solely on the color of the candidate. L admitted his selfish reasoning; whereas, J express the necessity of our tolerance and God’s forgiveness. Both acknowledged the political sins against God and man; however, neither seems to be troubled about their continued support of politicians who stand against God. Therefore 20% gave unbiblical defenses for voting against God’s will for mankind.

No one took a biblical approach to voting. How can followers of Christ cast Him out of the voting booth? How can true Christian believers, vote against their beliefs? God never changes (Hebrews 13:8) and neither should we!

Christians must always defend God, protect the children and marriage. How can we allow for the destruction of God’s creation and expect Him to bless us:

Ps 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. (KJV)

Mark 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. (KJV)

God made man for woman and woman for man. Who are we to change that?

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (KJV)

1 Cor 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders (NIV)

Who are we to condone evil? If something is evil in God’s eyes, it must remain evil in our eyes. At all times must we see the world through the lens of Jesus Christ.

Woe unto the American Church

With the legislative passage of homosexual marriage in New York, and the continued judicial insertion of homosexual marriage in California, the final destruction of Christianity in America has commenced from sea to shiny sea.
Who will support biblically based marriage? Not the Federal Government. President Obama ordered the attorney general to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act. The president said it was unconstitutional. Not the schools. They teach our children that homosexual relationships are normal and should be accepted by everyone. Not the media. When was the last time a major publication defended Christianity? What major network presents Christian characters in a positive light?
There are positive homosexual articles available for the reading public to purchase everywhere. Homosexual portrayals have become standard on television, but not Christians. A true representation of Christian life or Christianity in general is not allowed on the airwaves. This may not be an official ban, but it is a consistent one. Christians are portrayed as narrow minded bigots, sleazy con men, intolerant preachers or wing nuts!
Although Christianity is constantly assaulted, it is still fashionable to be a Christian in “name only”. The overwhelming majority of American politicians claim to be Christian. They appear in churches or on the campaign stump professing their love for Christ. The dishonest ones are honored by the media; whereas, the ones who take a firm stand for Christ are vilified by the same media.
What a strange contorted society we’ve conceived. We are encouraged to embrace those who pretend to love Christ, and ruthlessly attack those who actually love Him. This twisted logic did not escape the word of God.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (KJV)
I do not fault the homosexual community or their supporters for promoting their concept of life. I do not agree with them, but I understand their desire to be considered normal. Nevertheless, my opinion is irrelevant. Real Christians are obligated to obey God’s commandments. Those who do not believe in God may consider this position out dated, but their opinion is irrelevant as well. God makes the rules and those washed in the blood of Christ must to follow His rules.
The Bible states that those who engage in same sex practices are offending God and their own bodies. The redefinition of marriage is an abomination which cannot be ignored. Christians cannot pretend not to see that middle finger pointing in the face of God. We must resist marital redefinition efforts on all fronts: word by word, line by line and step by step.
We are in a war in which only one side can win. Jesus said that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church, but He did not say the church in America will prevail. The church in Europe is all but dead. Shall we join them? There was a time when we sent missionaries to Africa. Now Africa would do well to send missionaries to America.

The homosexual community with the help of secular politicians, the liberal media, progressive academics, and lazy apathetic Christians are pushing the church into the basement. If the church remains apathetic and doesn’t rise to the battle, asking God’s forgiveness will not be enough. We may also need to apologize to Judas, because apathy is far worse than treachery. At least traitors take a side!
