The hidden half of domestic violence

How to have eternal life

 

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Yesterday, I talked to a friend in Texas for over an hour. Although I know she is a firm Christian, I could sense a spirit of fear in her as we discussed the events of the past several months.

This fear as more noticeable as we talked about Glen Beck's recent reports on what is happening in our nation today. He has expressed serious concerns about the leadership of this nation and its key advisors. In yesterdays broadcast Glen stated that he fears all of his fears could become reality...overnight.

"If you watch MSNBC, I contend that you will see the future because they are laying the ground for a horrible event ... anything from the right, there's some awful event and I fear this government, this administration has so much framework already prepared, that they will seize power overnight before anybody even gives it a second thought"

Some of these fears is that with the "fairness doctrine, all dissenting views will be banned.

Glen recently stated:

"I have told you for a long time: Pay no attention to the Fairness Doctrine that would shut down voices like mine on the radio or voices like mine and Bill O'Reilly on TV. It's too obvious. They will do it through what's called "localism" and "diversity." The final piece of the argument will be against these giant corporate broadcast groups that have too much power (one of which will never be G.E.)

This has been my warning and my theory. A week and a half ago, I began to look into our FCC diversity "czar" Mark Lloyd. In his 2006 book, "Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America," Lloyd wrote:

"It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press.... This freedom is all too often an exaggeration.... At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies."

Freedom of speech... is a distraction?


Localism boards are being created. Our diversity "czar" has just proposed that radio companies pay 100 percent of their operating budget, yearly. A 100 percent tax which would then be transferred to the state-run radio of NPR. If you can't pay that, you'd lose your license and it would be sold to minority group. (In a completely unrelated fact, the FCC just approved the sale of another radio station this one on Long Island to ACORN.)

We already know the "hate crime" laws are intended to stop pastors from preaching the Word of GOD unless of course it comes from a "cotton candy machine" (1) and presents a watered down gospel that will be sweet to the taste.

Some of Glen's statements sound like a preacher.

Question with boldness
Hold to the truth
Speak without fear

"If you truly ask what Jefferson called honest questions, with a sincere heart,  the answers may take you to very uncomfortable places. Nobody wants to think our president is a bad guy; President Obama actually seems like a likeable guy. And he may be the greatest guy ever. But is he in step with you and what you believe this country is?

"When you hear the evidence, you have a decision to make: Will I bury my head in the sand, refusing to believe because it doesn't fit my agenda or my comfort level? Or will I hold to the truth whatever it is, so I may be a part of the solution and not an enabler to the problem."

My friend, those three points come right from the Bible. We are to hold to the truth, to question with boldness and we are told not to be afraid.

Could Beck's fears come to reality overnight? I firmly believe they could. I also believe it would happen overnight as key vocal people such as Beck and others who have openly voiced dissent would be rounded up in the middle of the night and taken into custody. Presidential "Executive Orders" have been on the books that would make this possible for the last several administrations both Democratic and Republican so it is not a party issue.



This is from the Declaration of Independence:


When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to  dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to
effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such
Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

My friend, I see many of these things happening today. Men are not being heard when they ask for redress for being victims of domestic violence. Our cries are being answered with reauthorization and strengthening of the Violence Against Women Act. Christians are being threatened and are being arrested for simply praying in public or exercising their Constitution right to express their faith in appropriate ways. Several men in Philadelphia were threatened with literally decades in prison for having a rally that they had permits for simply for stating what was said in Romans chapter one. They were not hateful in their
presentation such as the Westboro Baptist Church has been. (2)

We have seen from Glen Beck's statements above that any dissent is trying to be silenced. Conservatives and Christians are being called upon to be tolerant of everyone else but no one as to be tolerate of our views. (3)

The Bible also tells us destruction can come upon us suddenly.

1 Thessalonians 5:  2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction
cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not
escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake
you as a thief. Christians are told to be watchmen on the wall to sound the alarm when danger is approaching.

Ezekiel 33:7  So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel;
therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. (4)

There are a few that are sounding the alarm. Brannon Howse is doing this with "Code Blue" rallies (5) but few are listening.

My friend, Glen Beck said he is afraid. I am too! No I am not afraid for myself or for those who KNOW the LORD and have a personal relationship with Him, but for many reading this that are not ready because they do not really know the LORD. Let me address both of you for a moment longer.

As I started this out, the friend I was talking to on the phone started being fearful until I reminded her of the following scriptures.

Matthew 28:20b  I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

2 Corinthians 12:9a  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my
strength is made perfect in weakness.

Luke 12:4  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the
body, and after that have no more that they can do.

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be
afraid.

1 Peter 3:13:  And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
14: But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not
afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15: But sanctify the Lord God in
your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you
a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

John 14:1  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In
my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I
go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will
come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

There is some very good news for those who know the LORD:

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift
up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Someday the Eastern sky is going to break open and we will hear trumpets as the
LORD comes for HIS children.

 

The Midnight Cry

I hear the sound
Of a rushing mighty wind
And it's closer
Than it's ever been
I can almost hear the trumpet
As Gabriel sounds the call
And at the midnight cry
We'll be goin' home

When Jesus steps out
On a cloud to call His children
The dead in Christ shall rise
To meet Him in the air
Then those that will remain
Oh, oh they'll be quickly changed
And at the midnight cry
When Jesus comes again

I look around me
I see prophecies fulfilling
And those Signs of the time
They're appearing everywhere
I can almost hear the Father
Say, Son go get Your children
And at the midnight cry
The Bride of Christ will rise

I can almost hear the Father
As He says Go get Your children
And at the midnight cry
The Bride of Christ will rise
And at the midnight cry
The Bride of Christ will rise



My friend, this only applies to those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ for full payment for their sin. All others have a right and a need to be very afraid as there is no hope for them. You can find this hope in only a moment; right here:

It only takes a moment to change your eternal destiny. Do it today!

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

My friend, Jesus is only a whisper away!
