But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. “For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I wake up sometimes with a word in my
prayers thoughts. This morning it was the word “autoclave.”
My son and I watched a M*A*S*H episode the other day. The autoclave was broke and they had no way of sterilizing the tools they used to operate with.
Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?
I don’t remember having heard of an autoclave before watching that episode, but as I meditate on it and the state of our nation today I think I’m getting some insight into what’s going on.
“It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. “Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.…
As you probably know The Supreme Court heard arguments on same sex “marriage” the other day.
But I have something against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. She teaches and misleads my servants to sin sexually and to eat food sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to turn to me and change the way she thinks and acts, but she refuses to turn away from her sexual sins. Watch me! I’m going to throw her into a sickbed. Those who commit sexual sins with her will also suffer a lot, unless they turn away from what she is doing.
I’ve heard that is takes one to two months to render…
…rend your hearts...
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
This is such an important verdict that several politicians and religious leaders have called for civil disobedience if the ruling comes back in favor of same sex marriage. Folks….this is
an exciting a crucial and pivotal time in America’s history.
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, blessed is he.
Civil obedience in the form of political correctness is a disease that has advanced to a majority of every cell and fiber of the U.S.A.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
America is pregnant with evil.
Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment…
…Then desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin.
Speaking the truth in love, several of the Supreme Court Justices, in their civil obedience to political correctness and not the Word of God, are
just a small part of the greater disease killing our nation.
Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
I also listened to Os Guinness yesterday for the first time….wow!….I had never heard of him before but he made my head explode! He has so much wisdom. One thing that struck me was when he said “You can be well meaning, but not well grounded.”
The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.
He also made the point that when people are saturated with capitalism they are so used to choosing things that religion becomes just another choice.
You didn’t choose me, but I chose you.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want anyone to get the idea that I’m against capitalism. I am not. I am just mentioning what Mr. Guinness says about the affects it can have on a society. Affects that we can see being played out in front of us and in the mindset of unbelievers and even many people who call themselves Christian.
Mr. Guinness went on to say that in that kind of
cold environment “Faith fades away and disappears like a mist.”
You say, ‘I’m rich. I’m wealthy. I don’t need anything.’ Yet, you do not realize that you are miserable, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
Is that where America is today? When you’re in a
fog mist it’s kind of hard to see.
Some Pharisees who were with Jesus heard this. So they asked him, “Do you think we’re blind?”
My thoughts turn back to that autoclave. I have heard from several strong and faithful Christians that there is a darkness coming. Is it possible that God is putting America into
the dark an autoclave to purge us of our iniquities? To sterilize us and purify us?
…Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
One other interesting point I want to make about the M*A*S*H autoclave episode is that Hawkeye couldn’t fix the door on the autoclave to seal it so that it would work. Kelly had to do it for him.
He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings
It was a woman who had to do it.
As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. Isaiah 3:12
If the Supreme Court, in its limited human wisdom, decide for same sex marriage,
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. .
will God, in His just judgement against such an abomination,
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
use a woman to seal the door of the autoclave?
….do not be terrified, for these things must first take place…
