With this administration, everyday should be a National Day of Prayer!

Apostasy n. total desertion of one’s professed principles, faith, or party. —–apostate.

With that word in mind, do you see any similarity with what is happening to this Nation ?

Church’s are drifting away from the teachings of the Bible regarding gays and homosexuals.

They are allowing gays and lesbians to stand at the pulpit and preach to the congregation.

Some are even allowing same sex marriage to take place within the church itself.

This is an abomination as stated in the Old Testament in the book of Leviticus.

Leviticus chapter 20:13 reads,…

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

That is pretty explicit to me, so why are some churches allowing this ?

Similarly, our military is being attacked!

Not only the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ debacle, but open attacks on the Chaplains whose duty it is to administer to the troops Christian Principles.

Under the radical liberal progressive tenants that this administration promotes, our Country is being turned upside down.

Our law enforcement agencies have been told to remove any reference to radical Islamists from their training manuals.

The Muslim Brotherhood is embedded in our Government.

May 1, is National Prayer Day

993081_10201257418907996_724921225_n

With this administration, everyday should be National Prayer Day until we turn the tide on the direction this Country is headed in.

This has become an apostate Country due directly to the efforts of the present regime.

The Lord judged Sodom and Gomorrah, and I feel that he will judge US too.

Maybe He is doing it right now?

Maybe we are being judged for electing a man that is clearly against this Country’s Principles.

The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is being decimated right before our eyes.

It’s time to rise up and stop it !

 God help US.

Here are words that were written many, many years ago to give a warning to us today.

Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law ?
They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Yes that came from the Bible. specifically Psalm 94: 20-23.

Isn’t it pertinent to the predicament we find ourselves in today ?

Isn’t innocent blood being shed by abortions ?
Isn’t there an attack on the Christians in this country and across the world ?
Isn’t it obvious that we are being decimated by a lawless regime ?

The ones that are perpetrating these abominations on God’s people will not get away with it as the last verse states.

This Nation was founded as a nation that respects all religions and the practice thereof.
The persecution of one is not to be allowed.
Freedom of religion is a simple concept in my mind.

This Nation was designed to be a Nation of laws, not of men.

Too bad the men have overruled the laws that were initially set forth and essentially choose to ignore them.

We are not alone,….God is on our side.

O Holy Night

The Christmas Story of the

Birth of Jesus

By

The Christmas Story of the Birth of Jesus – Paraphrased from the Bible:

This Christmas story gives a biblical account of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ. The Christmas story is paraphrased from the New Testament books of Matthew and Luke in the Bible.

References:

Matthew 1:18-25; Matthew 2:1-12; Luke 1:26-38; Luke 2:1-20.

The Conception of Jesus Foretold

Mary, a virgin, was living in Galilee of Nazareth and was engaged to be married to Joseph, a Jewish carpenter. An angel visited her and explained to her that she would conceive a son by the power of the Holy Spirit. She would carry and give birth to this child and she would name him Jesus.

At first Mary was afraid and troubled by the angel’s words. Being a virgin, Mary questioned the angel, “How will this be?” The angel explained that the child would be God‘s own Son and, therefore, “nothing is impossible with God.” Humbled and in awe, Mary believed the angel of the Lord and rejoiced in God her Savior.

Surely Mary reflected with wonder on the words found in Isaiah 7:14 foretelling this event, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus:

While Mary was still engaged to Joseph, she miraculously became pregnant through the Holy Spirit, as foretold to her by the angel. When Mary told Joseph she was pregnant, he had every right to feel disgraced. He knew the child was not his own, and Mary’s apparent unfaithfulness carried a grave social stigma. Joseph not only had the right to divorce Mary, under Jewish law she could be put to death by stoning.

Although Joseph’s initial reaction was to break the engagement, the appropriate thing for a righteous man to do, he treated Mary with extreme kindness. He did not want to cause her further shame, so he decided to act quietly. But God sent an angel to Joseph in a dream to verify Mary’s story and reassure him that his marriage to her was God’s will. The angel explained that the child within Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit, that his name would be Jesus and that he was the Messiah, God with us.

When Joseph woke from his dream, he willingly obeyed God and took Mary home to be his wife, in spite of the public humiliation he would face. Perhaps this noble quality is one of the reasons God chose him to be the Messiah’s earthly father.

Joseph too must have wondered in awe as he remembered the words found in Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (NIV)

At that time, Caesar Augustus decreed that a census be taken, and every person in the entire Roman world had to go to his own town to register. Joseph, being of the line of David, was required to go to Bethlehem to register with Mary. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus. Probably due to the census, the inn was too crowded, and Mary gave birth in a crude stable. She wrapped the baby in cloths and placed him in a manger.

The Shepherd’s Worship the Savior:

Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.

There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.

The Magi Bring Gifts:

After Jesus’ birth, Herod was king of Judea. At this time wise men (Magi) from the east saw a star, they came in search, knowing the star signified the birth of the king of the Jews. The wise men came to the Jewish rulers in Jerusalem and asked where the Christ was to be born. The rulers explained, “In Bethlehem in Judea,” referring to Micah 5:2. Herod secretly met with the Magi and asked them to report back after they had found the child. Herod told the Magi that he too wanted to go and worship the babe. But secretly Herod was plotting to kill the child.

So the wise men continued to follow the star in search of the new born king and found Jesus with his mother in Bethlehem. (Most likely Jesus was already two years of age by this time.) They bowed and worshipped him, offering treasures of gold, incense, and myrrh. When they left, they did not return to Herod. They had been warned in a dream of his plot to destroy the child.
