Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Godless America

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse." Rom. 1:18-20.

In order for America's god to exist and flourish, the only True God must be thought of as non-existent, a figment of a demented mind, a crutch for the mentally ill, an illusion of the imagination. Efforts by these so-called "atheists" have been successful in convincing nearly 100% of the population that the Creation account in Genesis is a myth and therefore the God that did the creating must be a myth also. This is suppressing the truth in unrighteousness. For the "evangelical" who is reluctant to buy into the whole Darwinian lie, a mix of "creation" and evolution is offered as the first step to the ultimate goal of denying Genesis. Without a public repudiation of God as the Creator, a door is opened for the alternative to Him being the Creator as accounted in Genesis (the seven days of Creation). We are expected to believe that "His work" was done over billions of years and that He employed evolution as part of the 'process' of creation, all of which directly denies Genesis. All of this is neatly packaged in the appealing garb of "reason" and "logic" and "scientific proof" yet science, by their own admission, has yet to "prove" evolution on any level. Recently, the folks at CERN searched for the "god-particle" which they claim to have found, but to their dismay their search completely destroyed the fantasy that was perpetrated by these same "scientists" namely the "big-bang" theory. There was one public declaration to this new finding. Yet they continue to spout the lies that end up in God being non-existent. And America loves to have it so.

There is seemingly no end to the hatred for God exhibited by these self-proclaimed "atheists." They curse Him, mock Him, deny Him all from their proud heart. But when calamity strikes it's time for a moment of silence, a tacit "prayer" is offered, and the demand "God bless America" rings out for a day or two (remember 9-12-01?). But all of this is a stench in the nostrils of God, compounded mockery, more wickedness, all of which leads to even more harsh judgments. No where to be heard are the words "we have sinned," "our wickedness is great," or "please have mercy on us." Instead, America arrogantly demands that blessings be poured out us because we are poor, innocent victims of someone else's sins. "We don't deserve this calamity, this terrorist attack, we deserve more of what we demand from You" (the One they just declared yesterday does not even exist). For "success" in any endeavor the mere mention of God is strictly forbidden with an increasing number being removed/arrested for their audacity. "Churches" are no longer just complicit in this evil, but leading the charge with false gospels numbering in the thousands of varieties. Jesus Christ is just a name to them, no longer the Son of God, no longer One to be feared and revered. His suffering has been declared to be worthless, unnecessary, of no merit, His Father accused of "cosmic child abuse" with no voices raised in outrage. All the while these same God haters demand to be "blessed" not knowing what they request. There is only one way to any blessing from God, that is through Jesus Christ. They don't want such a blessing, but rather seek relief from the consequences of their life of sin, still such a relief is found only in Christ Jesus the Lord---the One whom they hate. For them to seek forgiveness would mean that they must acknowledge not only the existence, but the all powerful sovereignty of the God they so dearly love to hate; such thinking is repugnant to them therefore they are repugnant to God. [Yet God, in His mercy and compassion still saves such men, and makes them a new creation in Christ.]

As for those that consider themselves to be "atheists" it is you who do not exist. There are no atheists. Everyone who claims to be an atheists lies to themselves and the rest of the world. It is a badge of arrogance and stupidity. As plainly stated in the above quote, God has shown to every man "His invisible attributes" making all "without excuse" for their claim of the nonexistence of God. God calls the atheists by name: liar. America loves it's "atheists" from the "scientist" to the politician, to their favorite "preacher" who declares another "Jesus" to their audience. It is this denial of the existence of God, His acts as the Creator that have opened the flood gates of judgment on America and all other nations of similar beliefs. Romans 1 continues on to say that "God gave them over" basically to their own evil desires with the end being described in verses 28-32. This is a perfect description of American life: totally devoid of the ability to think straight, to be humble before God, all the while knowing that judgment looms (V.32), but people just don't care. They just want more of the same.

God forgive us.

Here in England, it's exactly the same, not fear of God whatsoever. Even when disaster strikes, they pray, but they don't mention who they pray to.

God will have His way.

A world wide 'thing' no doubt. It is refreshing to hear those who still hold our Lord in highest regard, though it seems the ranks are dwindling.
