THE TWO PRACTICES THAT DEPOSE NATIONS

God tells us that two practices, when corporately embraced under the umbrella of government, will determine the fall of nations. The first is persecution of the Jews which may threaten their survival as a unique and separate people-group. The second is the sacrifice of children / corporately sanctioned murder A third practice that impacts the health of culture and has ended in major corrections via judgment is the worship of demons via false religions.  But that would be a blog for a different time. 

It seems no coincidence that on Christmas Eve, at this most holy time of celebration, elected officials, working in secrecy behind closed doors, and shutting their ears to every competing viewpoint, are working toward giving the United States a first provision for government sponsored abortion.

If state sponsored murder of the unborn becomes a reality every person of faith will be called to the point of momentous moral decisions that will have eternal ramifications for each individual.

CHURCH SANCTIONED CHILD ABUSE / THE MURPHY COMMISSION OF INQUIRY: Learning to Banish Denial as we Read Behavior

There are ministering, messenger, and warring angels.  Ministering Angels are there for us.  They have our backs, so to speak.  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation (Hebrews 1: 14). 

For He will give his angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.  They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone (Psalm 91: 11, 12). 

They are very interested in the calling and purposes related to God's great and glorious plan for mankind.  It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from …
