1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 4Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Why do we marvel? There should be no expectation of salvation until there is real conviction, real repentance, and real belief in the salvation provided by Christ alone - not penance, not other intercessors, not repetitive prayers, etc.
It appears to me that religion and politics are inseparable. Liberals believe it‚Äôs right and loving to turn little boys into girls, they express that in their laws and policy - including politics. Christians believe it‚Äôs right and loving to protect unborn children from being aborted. They express it in their laws and policies - including politics. I‚Äôm looking forward to the day when those who say they believe God and His Word, consistently demonstrate it with their actions. Including law, policy and politics. Now, I‚Äôm no historian nor have I attained the years of my fathers, yet I believe America was once a God blessed nation because that‚Äôs what Christians did. We now cower in the corner pretending not to have opinions, while humanists take our taxes to abort our grandchildren and castrate our neighbors children. We are now under judgement.
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
Christ calls His people to go therefore, making disciples of all nations, teaching His commandments, including the part about not shedding innocent blood. As for prohibition, the earth is the Lord‚Äôs and the fullness thereof. Every herb is given for the service of man. Strong drink is not for princes, give it to those who are perishing, that they might forget their misery. As for Christ‚Äôs people - let‚Äôs not be ignorant of the Master‚Äôs warning: ‚Äúdepart from me you who practice lawlessness ‚Äú I continue to pray for those who are staggering off to death and the closure of PP St. Louis. May He grant their wicked hit men & women repentance - or wipe them out of their place.
I‚Äôm very thankful to God for giving the Center for Medical Progress and their undercover journalists the conviction, courage and endurance to stand against the abortion industry. I pray He will continue to sustain them. I marvel at His perfect timing too, PP vs. the State of Missouri starts October 28 in St. Louis (a few block from where the Dred Scott decision was made) and is open to the public.
And those who exposed this are subject to horrific and unjust treatment at the hands of Planned Parenthood and their corrupt activist judge Orrick (following is an excerpt from wednesdays proceedings in San Francisco): When defense attorney Paul Jonna attempted to merely question the witness about a StemExpress training document showing the bonus structure for different types of fetal body parts, Judge Orrick cut off the line of questioning, invoking Planned Parenthood‚Äôs attorney Amy Bomse: ‚ÄúSustained. The objection that Ms. Bomse was about to make by standing up is sustained.‚ÄĚ Bomse never made an objection‚Äďall she did was stand up.

No doubt. Our politicians have lost it. That doesn‚Äôt change what those who trust in the Lord should be doing. May the Living God raise up men who fear Him to lead our nation. May He raise up biblically qualified shepherds to shepherd His people. May He turn the hearts of the fathers to their children. May His kingdom come.
This is the tender mercy of the wicked... There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And whose fangs are like knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, And the needy from among men. In contradiction to the Word of God which says we will have the poor with us always. Far be it from God's people that we would believe the lie that we ought to promote the destruction of human life to wipe the poor from the face of the earth.
So thankful to hear how the Lord is raising up Godly men to do justice. Please pray for our similar situation here in Missouri. So far, those who have ruled have seemed to lack a sense of justice or reality. Next hearing in October!
