President Obama has let down a lot of people who trusted him not to yield to political pressure and support gay marriage; especially the African-American community who have been so proud to have this black man who represents the hopes of desires of our people as well as a nation of supporters.
President Obama professes himself to be Christian and I believe him; he is like many or even most of the modern, liberal Christians that are lukewarm in their understanding and commitment to God’s Word/Jesus Christ and to his commands.
He and so many of my brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ have given themselves over to a world view rather than a kingdom mindset. There spirituality is shallow and just below the outward surface is pride, doubt, unbelief, greed, self-reliance and the list goes on.
Don’t pretend that you don’t put your confidence in man’s abilities….you do it each and every time you vote for anyone who you think can advance your own agenda. You see the truth is….you really don’t believe God can or will “give you the desires of your heart”. You don’t really believe who and what the Word of God says you are and you really are not keen to submit yourself totally to the Will of God.
President Obama, Vice-President Biden and most if not all of the politicians who claim to be Christians, do not walk in the power and authority of Jesus Christ. They bend to the will of the political machine and interest groups who supply the finance to keep them in the position of power that they long for.
If only, any of them had the courage to stand for the Truth and not be daunted by the powers of the world, powers of darkness and rulers of darkness in high places (remember this is a spiritual battle), they could see the Power of God working against all of the lies and unrighteous works of the Devil.
Problem is….most of our political leaders bend to the will of the world and forsake their God given place in Jesus Christ….they are afraid to surrender to God. There’s a song by William McDowell titled “I Give Myself Away” and one of the verses is especially power that says “my life is not my own, to you I belong….” If only we could ALL believe that. “God help my unbelief” should be on the lips of every Child of God.
Please hear me saints….God is real and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him: Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Abortion and Gay Marriage will destroy the very fabric of our Nation, our culture and our society. Don’t turn a blind eye to what is at work here….it is the Devil’s handi-work.
The Day of Our Lord’s Coming is fast approaching, we must build ourselves and each other up on our most holy Faith. I want to share two Scriptures with you that are most important for us to study so that we can understand the times and seasons that we are in:
Jude 1 (KJV)
1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
1 Next the angel showed me the river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 Between the main street and the river was the Tree of Life producing twelve kinds of fruit, a different kind every month; and the leaves of the tree were for healing the nations – 3 no longer will there be any curses. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will worship him; 4 they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 Night will no longer exist, so they will need neither the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because ADONAI, God, will shine upon them. And they will reign as kings forever and ever. 6 Then he said to me, “These words are true and trustworthy: ADONAI, God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon.” 7 “Look! I am coming very soon. Blessed is the person who obeys the words of the prophecy written in this book!” 8 Then I, Yochanan, the one hearing and seeing these things, when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel showing them to me. 9 But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am only a fellow-servant with you and your brothers, the prophets and the people who obey the words in this book. Worship God!” 10 Then he said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book,g because the time of their fulfillment is near. 11 “Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly; whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy. “Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous; and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy.” 12 “Pay attention!” [says Yeshua,] “I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me to give to each person according to what he has done. 13 I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’ the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” 14 How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 16 “I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. 17 The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.” 18 I warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. 19 And if anyone takes anything away from the words in the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the holy city, as described in this book. 20 “The one who is testifying to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon!'” Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua! 21 May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all!
My dear brothers and sisters, God is not mocked and the Devil is a defeated foe….let’s walk in the power and authority of Jesus Christ and put our Trust in God….men will fail us, but God never fails.
Your Sister In Christ,
Minister Glenda Jackson
