The Only Way Back to God May 29, 2018

If Jesus is the Son of God, if God became man and walked among us, if the incarnate deity suffered and died to pay for the sins of the world, if He descended into hell and took the keys of death from the devil, if He rose again from the dead justifying all who become one with Him, if He rose into heaven and anointed the ultimate altar with His blood offering up the payment for the fall of man what is there that can be of more importance than that?

If out of all the millions of books ever written God wrote one book, one set of writings infused with His Spirit, and alive with His Word what can compare with that?

I remember back when I first began to walk with Christ.  As with most new believers I burned with passion and devoted myself as exclusively as I could to the study of His Word.  I couldn’t get enough.  I read His Word every chance I got.  I devoured it.  I lived and breathed it.  Nothing else mattered. I just had to get His Word into me, into my life.  And it changed me.

Reading God’s Word led me to Christ.  Reading His Word taught me to love. Reading His Word taught me that I shouldn’t pollute His temple (my body) with drugs, tobacco, and other things.  It healed me of addictions I had accepted as a normal part of life, cleansed me of sins I hadn’t even known I was committing, and it gave me a love for God’s people, and His church.

Being a self-centered substance abuser, a street-fighting loner, and in general a morally bankrupt reprobate gave me a lot of running room in my search for holiness in Him.  I was working forty to eighty hours per week and spent every waking hour not at work in the Bible.  It was a wonderful time and a joyous time of getting to know my first love.

For many of us as the first blush of love fades, as the joy of Christian fellowship becomes an everyday event, as we learn that many Christians shoot the wounded, crucify pastors, and leave their love at the altar the supernatural becomes mundane and love fades.  Slowly we become colder until we wonder, “Was it all a dream?”

The cares of this life seem to cauterize the faith of believers.  We strive to walk by faith and not by sight but most of us are peeking.  We still have one eye on the world, one ear to the ground, and one hand in the cookie jar.  That’s what trips us up.  We can’t walk through life divided.   If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  You see no one can serve two masters.  For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and the world.

I have made that mistake.  Like Frodo looking into Mount Doom I peeked at the news until it consumed me.  My daily study of “What was going on” became an exercise in naval gazing: a worthless pursuit that gave me the ability to speak like an expert and live like a fool.  For a fool has said in his heart there is no God.  And I know there is a God and I invested my intellect and my attention in that which is not God.  For this I repent.

I remember when I was a new believer reading through the Bible for the first time.  When I read the book of Judges I wondered why God kept saving those Israelites over and over when after a few times it became evident they would just backslide again.  Then I had my first stumble, and my second, and my third, and I am forever grateful that God does not shoot the wounded.  Instead he binds the broken hearted.

As Unspoken puts it,

YOU CAN NEVER FALL

TOO HARD, SO FAST, SO FAR

THAT YOU CAN’T GET BACK

WHEN YOU’RE LOST, WHERE YOU ARE IS NEVER

TOO LATE, SO BAD, SO MUCH

THAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE

WHO YOU ARE

YOU CAN CHANGE WHO YOU ARE

If the world has caught you in its web once again, if shiny objects glittering in the light have captured your attention turn away from the world, cast your eyes upon Jesus, keep your thoughts upon Him, and return to your first love.

You may ask, “How do I do that?”

There is only one way back to God. …

Get back to God.

President Trump Stand by the Constitution May 4, 2018

This is an open plea to our president.   Mr. Trump stand by the Constitution or fall for the Mueller persecution team’s perjury trap.

The only body that is competent under our Constitution to indict (impeach) or try a president is Congress, not a prosecutor, not a grand jury, not the regular courts, not even the Supreme Court.

If Mueller and his team of Democrat donor Hillary supporters get a subpoena from a Grand Jury send them a ham sandwich and refuse to comply.  If the swamp dwellers and their Star Chamber get a federal court to rule that you must comply ignore it.  If they appeal it to the Supreme Court and they order you to comply ignore it.

You are the President of the United States.  According to Article Two, Section Four, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”  And according to Article One, Section Three, “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.”

The way it works is that the Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach an official, and it makes the Senate the sole court for impeachment trials.

After all these months of digging, of intimidating people trying to get them to offer damning testimony in exchange for the end of relentless persecution they have come up empty.  They don’t have anything or they would be moving forward with impeachment and now even crazy Nancy Pelosi is trying to talk Maxine Waters in off the ledge.  There are no grounds for impeachment.

So stand strong Mr. President.  Don’t let the Lilliputians get the threads on you in an obvious perjury trap that any interview or any other form of interrogation would entail.  They would be asking questions that they already no the answers to and expecting you to answer them by memory.  Even the slightest slip will be called perjury.  Having failed to find evidence of the imagined crime they were empaneled to investigate they are seeking to ensnare you in a process crime.

Don’t fall into their trap.  Don’t allow these minions of the Deep State to overthrow the results of a legally constituted election.  If it turns out that there is no chance to elect someone who doesn’t meet the standards of the nomenclature we have truly become an effective oligarchy disguised as an effective federal republic.

Mr. President, the people who voted to make America great again stand behind you.  Rise above these statists who seek to cling to power.  Drain the swamp and we can all watch the flowers of freedom grow.
