I heard The LORD say this morning, “Many in My Kingdom are trying to “build up their own ministry” when they should just start ministering to the people to build them up… “
“But they kept silent, for on the road they had disputed among themselves who would be the greatest . And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all,” Mark 9:34-35 (NKJV).
The Old Man Who Wanted to Go Home
Around 1978 I was working in Orlando Florida at a holiday Inn restaurant near Disney World.
I was in my 20’s in those days. We had this older man who was then in his 60’s who was from Cuba.
He told us all a story one day about when Castro took over Cuba and made them a socialist country.
He said that he was a prominent Doctor in Cuba when this happened, had a wonderful practice there and had worked all of his life to create this life.
He said that when Castro took over, they took it all away from him and spread the wealth around and then he had to work for a meager salary for a lot more work and all of his property that he had worked for became the government’s property.
He escaped Cuba left his family behind hoping to get them here when he got settled and came to America where he could not speak English.
So he had to take this job as a Bus Boy in his late 60’s. He never got his family to America the last I knew of him.
What are we thinking?
I never will forget that story, and now when I hear of these young people wanting to follow a socialist because of everyone being on the same level and getting all things free, it grieves my heart.
Socialism kills and I mean kills creativity, which is what the enemy of our soul wants. If it is up to the Democrats, (and make no exception) they are all trending to Socialism, this is what will happen in America no matter what kind of face they try and put on it.
I just pray if this happens that these millionaire socialists like Bernie Sanders, will have to live equally with those that they are trying to control by making them dependent on the government… Just sayin’
So you say you want to be as Socialist?
I remember when I worked with that sweet old man that everyday this announcement would come on the loud speaker in the hotel saying “The bus is now leaving for Disney World, sea world etc…..”
He then would shout out everyday “And Cuba!!” God Love him, he wanted to go back to His old way of life in Cuba, but it was not to happen….
Are we seriously considering voting in someone who would take us into such a killer of dreams?
God help us!
I suggest we do a better job of educating our young people about the evils of Socialism and Communism and stop allowing these left wing professors pour this nonsense into their minds!
The Word of God says that we are suppose to be teaching the nations, not the nations teaching us….
It is time the church woke up! It is time America woke up! It is Kingdom time!
People of God, we can not lay down on this one and go into our usual apathy.
We can not, not be political this time! The soul of our Nation depends on it!
