Political and Social Issues

Christians have all kinds of different political beliefs and persuasions today. Christians also adopt different views on many different social issues.

These things can be discussed, but it is not wise for anyone to insist that it is necessary to hold certain political views in order to be right with God.

In many ways, these issues are secondary to the Christian, because Jesus said, “My Kingdom is not of this world”.

Thanksgiving for Answered Prayer from Psalm 119

Thank you Lord that you do not let me wander from Your commandments.
(Psalm 119:10)

Thank you Lord that you teach me Your statutes.
(Psalm 119:12)

(Psalm 119:18)

Thank You Father God that You do not hide Your commandments from me.
(Psalm 119:19)

The State of Justice in the U.S.A.

I refer to the article at http://www.cnn.com/2007/LAW/06/08/winkler.sentence.ap/index.html

Of course, you never know how much of what is reported is true, but for now, I will write as if what is written here is true, and see what this might mean from a Christian point of view.

It seems that this woman, Mary Winkler, who willfully shot her husband to death might get off with 7 months jail time.

She was convicted of “voluntary manslaughter”. That term makes about as much sense as “involuntary murder”.

The Millenium – Pre-millenial view

THE MILLENIUM: We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up His millennial reign on
this earth – Zech 14:5; Dan 7:22; Rev 5:9-10;
Psa 96:10-13; Psa 11; Rev 20:1-10.

Introduction.

The Punishment of the Wicked

I do the will of my Father in Heaven. # Mt 7.21

I enter the rest of God and cease from my own human labours. # Heb 4.10

The works that Christ did I do also. # John 14.12

I do justice, love mercy and seek to walk humbly with my God. # Mic 6.8

By love I serve another. # Gal 5.13

I go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. # Mk 16.15

Satanic Tactics

“… for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11)

Paul and his close co-workers made it their business not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices. This does not mean that Paul spent a lot of time researching all the dark secrets of Satan’s kingdom. No. Paul said to the Romans, “I want you to be wise in what is good, but simple (innocent) concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly” (Romans 16:19). Honestly, we don’t need to be “au fait” with all the latest conspiracy theories and what Satan may or may not be doing (Isaiah 8:12,13).

The Kingdom of God

The central message of Jesus Christ was the message of “the Kingdom of God” or “the Kingdom of Heaven”. This message, when understood, is the most relevant message for the needs of humanity. It is a highly attractive message, and will produce the greatest results of any message one could give. This message must once again become the central theme of preachers and teachers in these last days.

When the message of the Kingdom of God is given correctly, the results will be dramatic, just as they were for our Lord and for the apostles of our Lord.
