If you know your KJV Bible, you have a firm grip on what has been happening in America over the last several decades. We—as a nation—have been and continue to be on a downward slide spiritually and it continues to manifest in tangible ways across every imaginable institution.
Politics is no exception. It has become only the latest, tangible example of corruption.
From a prophetic point of view, Jesus Christ IS soon going to rapture His church home. This comes from several places in the New Testament. There have been many signs of His second coming becoming more and more visible to Christians and non-Christians alike. Just as the Scriptures assure us that “it rains on the just and the unjust”, in these last days, high gas prices, supply-chain issues, recession and layoffs impact both the saved and the lost.
Before God lowers the boom on a nation, there are initial ‘warning shots’ to get the attention to the people in that land. Why? To get the inhabitants to repent, forsake their evil ways, and turn back to His ways through the Scriptures. Christians who are living wayward lives outside of the will of God need repentance too! After all, the Bible holds that “judgment MUST begin at the House of God (His Church). Sometimes, the worst enemies of Christianity are some of those who meet in churches every Sunday, amen?
Two decades ago, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were hit by our enemies. Result? More than 3,000 dead. The USA was stopped dead in its tracks to deal with its collective sins. There was a ‘social pause’ of about six to eight months. Economic and personal turmoil reigned supreme. People started going back to church and dealing with their sins. Unfortunately, once the economic and political smoke cleared, folk went right back to “Business as Usual”. September 11th became a spot in the rearview mirror as Americans soon forgot about the towers falling.
However, God had not forgotten us.
MEANWHILE, IN A VOTING BOOTH NEAR YOU:
Originally, this month’s column was going to hit on one party being on the wrong side of the street on several issues. Now that more and more of the ‘business wise guys’ officially used the “Recession” word in Mid-June, 2022, let me remind Democrats—especially Black Democrats—far and wide of one crucial thing: “Yes, You Voted For This!” But the true tragedy of the moment is how many ‘church going’ Black folk have traded away their faith in God for being bussed to early voting sites on the Lord’s Day and flipping the lever for people who have the worst of intentions.
Many Black Christians have done this with their eyes wide open.
Asians, Hispanics, and even Native Americans have huddled, discovered that Democrats ‘speak with forked tongue’ and are voting Republican IN DROVES. Why? Because THEY have discovered what Christian and conservative Blacks have been saying since the sixties: “Don’t be locked in with the same political party, year after year. Vote for those whom you KNOW will do their best for you and will work to EARN your vote!” Another reason why these—and other groups of color are abandoning the Democratic party is that God has made a serious comeback among these people.
So has a realization that their families are being attacked by spiritual wickedness in high places.
Unfortunately, in the urban areas of cities, we have Black folks who have a multitude of churches to attend, but the Christ of these churches never made it into their social and political lifestyles. We—the people who have leaned on Jesus through many a hard time—made a little money, had a little political power, and decided that we didn’t want to ‘rest’ on the Rock of Ages.
We’ve traded a sure foundation for sinking sand.
And the bill for our ignorance is coming due, day by day.
THE LIE HAS BEEN ENSHRINED:
Sadly, one of the proofs of what the KJV Bible states about spiritual wickedness in high places can be traced back to a simple device many of us should have been broken out of in childhood: Lying.
These days? You have people in a host of institutions who have been so corrupted in their quest for power, money, and fame that they not only enjoy lying…it has been enshrined as the normal cost of doing business. I mean that in education, social media, personal relationships, and yes--politics
Shocked? We really shouldn’t be. Once society ‘decided’ that standards had to be tossed overboard and competition was a bad thing, ‘The Art of the Lie’ has become a prerequisite for being regarded as being ‘truly successful’. We’re NOT talking about the existence of ‘The Easter Bunny’ or ‘Santa Clause’. We ARE talking about lies the size of battleships—and just as visible—before the public, and certain people who tell us not to believe our eyes or other senses.
The old adage regarding common sense and the truth has also been sacrificed for political power: “Fool me once, shame on you—fool me twice, shame on me!”
VOTING FOR SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION:
Blind loyalty to the Socialist wing of the Democrat National Committee, the “Mainstream Mess” media who mocks us, the public education system that keeps young Black men and women in mental chains with CRT, Abortion on Demand, and the sodomite alphabet gang (who are sending THEIR children to private schools to avoid this garbage) are responsible for ‘throwing this country back’ to the 1970s.
Is this ‘Black enough’ for you?
But wait…There’s more!
Think that the Republican party is going to ‘rush’ to the rescue of upright people? Sadly, this is NOT the case. Seems that the GOP—the party of Lincoln—is turning its back on Christians and the church. More and more ‘effort’ is being made to bring sodomites and transvestites into the ‘Big Tent’ of the Republican party and push out the Christian faith to achieve victory.
This is not only going on in conservative politics…but conservative media as well. Both “Fox News” and “Fox Business” networks have been quietly hiring commentators who have ‘been cleaned up’ for TV, but still are practicing sodomites and transvestites. Same can be said for Republicans who want to seek higher office. They have made peace with the enemies of the KJV Bible—which means that they have made enemies of God to attract ‘big money’ into their political coffers and campaigns.
BOTH political parties have a hatred of Israel. The Democrats are more overt, and the Republicans are more covert. Nevertheless, my Jewish brothers and sisters have been casting their ballots for those who want to see Israel destroyed! It hasn’t been that long since then-President Obama made it a point of disrespecting Israel, and now-President Biden has gone right back to the same blueprint of making peace with the enemies of Israel and paying out millions of dollars towards the destruction of God’s people.
THE SOLUTION? GET BACK TO BIBLE BASICS!
Black folk who ‘claim’ to be Christians and believe in church and the KJV Bible are going to have to stop being swayed by the ‘shinny baubles’ of political success and popularity and get back to a sound moral stance IF they would rather please God than man.
I realize that this column may be a bit hard for some to take, as biblical sense is being used to expose how we are being suckered by BOTH political parties. The bottom line is quite simple: IF you know anything about Bible Prophecy, you are well aware that we are living in the end times. It is high time for many of us to sober up and take a good look around at the destruction on our streets and the business closures in our suites. Bad politicians don’t come to power by themselves. God allows them to come to power because His people have disregarded His ways and have gone after the trappings of this world.
This summer is going to be a hot one. I know a place that is a LOT hotter, if some folks don’t wake up and realize that they are being played the fool by those who are anxiously practicing spiritual wickedness in high places.
