The Turning Point

 

I pray, that God will help me say what He wants said.  I’m terribly distracted by some of this ranting here on Facebook.  I normally add people to my friends list if they ask; even if I don’t know them personally.  If they are friends with other people that I’ve interacted with, I accept.  I am grateful for every person on the list.  Many seem so nice and even very Christian like; they talk about spiritual things.  Then, out of the clear blue, they decide to post their view on politics or other current events.  What a contrast, to how they normally come across.  One thing becomes clear; they are not a real friend; not to me and not to others.  They’re so critical.

My mother told me something when I was growing up, that I’ve seen to be true.  She said, that if someone is way overboard on one thing, you can be pretty sure, they are way off base on something else.  People think they can have the Holy Ghost [Holy Spirit], and rant and rave about things and show a truly ugly spirit.

I have no desire whatsoever to post anything on politics, or any other subject of debate.  People’s religious convictions and beliefs, and the way church people fight and argue over them, has tuned off a large part of the world.  If we are going to quote scriptures, we need to be big enough to quote it all; not just pick out the things that fit our own dogma or desires.

One of the best ways to defeat a people and a nation, is to get them to arguing and fighting one another.  There are some, who simply need to bite their tongue; you’re not helping anybody.  Our nation [The United States of America] is in more trouble at this point, than we have ever been in our entire history.  I don’t care what party you belong to.  What we’ve been doing for years, is not working.  You can blame whomever you want.  The die was cast a long time ago about certain issues; there never was anything we could do about some things.  Many things are coming to pass, simply because of the hearts of men.  The love of money, the desire for power and control, the craving for material things; it’s all about who’s got the most money.  We can’t even face that.

It grieves me to hear a lot of people talking, about things they actually have no knowledge about, whatsoever.  That’s in the scripture too.  They just trash people; only repeating what someone else told them.  They never even studied it for themselves; yet they know all about it.  There are some terrible things going on in this world; there really are, and I’m not trying to minimize any of it.  But there are some terrible things going on, right here in our own country; some awful evil things.

Most of it, is not even coming from the people so many are ranting about.  While we fight one another, and rave on about our favorite moral subject, the rich get even richer, the poor get even poorer.  We have less freedoms and rights today, then we ever had before.  Pardon me.  But if you blame it on a certain party or whomever happens to be sitting in some office we idolize, you’re terribly uninformed.

Principalities and powers.  The rulers of the darkness of this world.  And spiritual wickedness in high places.  And we are feeding those forces, by this constant railing on one another and serving our own flesh.  There is a decision to be made.  Are we going to wake up and see who and what is truly behind what we are watching unfold.

Tribulation, is likely the only thing that is going to get most people’s attention.  Which way will the church go?  Do people truly realize what the apostles went through; in what manner they left this life.  Jesus was crucified!  Most people do not believe that this is the beginning of sorrows; they don’t.  And our wicked ways?  Most don’t believe we have any.  Will we turn from them?  What, are we waiting for?
