Six weeks ago, I was at a Louisville Christian Writers meeting and when we got to the last segment of our meeting which was a critique group session. A friend of mine sitting at the group said that she’d been SOOOO MAD about the stuff about the current administration is doing. Then another friend who wasn’t trying to chastise her said that we need to quit getting all hacked off about the political situation and pray. Here’s he other issue another friend was writing about the same thing. ho could 2 women be writing about the same thing? Who knows, but I can tell you this- the conversation that was to follow really jerked a knot in my rear-end!
That doesn’t mean don’t go to a T.E.A Party that means we are to turn these T.E.A parties into a prayer opportunity not a gripe session. By the way those of you who are of Judeo-Christian background, we need to fast and pray, not just pray. This is a situation like in Esther- we are here for “such a time as this.” We need to fast and pray for this President If you’re diabetic and you’re thinking “Oh no I can’t!” Oh yes you can, it’s called a Daniel fast read Daniel chapter 1 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego or for those of you who grew up on Veggie Tales Rack, Shack and Benny. The Daniel fast consists of fruits, vegetables, and water. Check your blood sugar regularly to make sure you don’t go into insulin shock or diabetic coma. You need to be doing that regularly anyway. If you’re nor you oughta know better than that. by the way, this is only going to be for a few days like a week or so. This is not something you do over a long period of time unless directed by the Holy Spirit (The third person of the Godhead e.g. God the Father God the Son (Jesus), God the Holy Spirit. They are not 3 gods for those of you who’ve had a bunch of weird junk shoved in you head READ THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF WITH SOME GOOD STUDY MATERIALS!
Leave the teachings of the Mormon Church and the Jehovah’s WItnesses out of this they are inaccurate. The Quran doesn’t have anything different as a matter of fact Muhammad transplanted Christian End-Times Theology and twisted it. So Solomon was right, “There’s nothing new under the sun,” Ecclesiastes 1:9.
Read the following Scriptures:
THE END TIMES- THIS NO LAUGHING MATTER!
I Thessalonians 5:1:1-11
Matthew 24, Mark 13:1-2, Luke 21:5-6,
Mk. 13:3-13, Luke 21:17-19
Mk. 13:14-23, Luke 17:23-24, Luke 17:37, Luke 21:20-24, Mk. 13:24-27, Luke 12:41-48.
The Book of Revelation
Daniel 1, Esther 4:16, Is. 58:1-12, Matt. 6:16-18, Acts 13:2
I know what you politicsl types are thinking- “We need to CRUSH the other political party!” News flash- I don’t think so. Jesus told us to love one another and if you are a Christian that’s EXACTLY what you willl do! I’ve gotten sick of all this HATE AND VITRIOLE JUST STOP IT! The Scriptures tell us to pray for our leaders even if we don’t like them. This is a command not a suggestion! So, start praying for one another and by the way don’t pray the way Ms. Sykes prayed for Mr. Limbaugh, that will BACKFIRE on you! you cannot pray destructively and not expect it to not hit you. What she did even if it was funny may boomerang on her she should’ve kept her mouth shut. I don’t care how funny it is- WORDS MEAN SOMETHING AND THEY HAVE POWER! People do the dumbest things I’m telling you. I will be praying protection over Ms. Sykes health since she seems goofy enough to unleash that kind of junk in the world. Nobody needs this junk! Jesus said it straight up in Matthew 5:44 “Pray for your enemies.” This doesn’t take a Ph.D in Christian theology to figure out, just some common sense. So don’t let yourself fall into the trap of thinking that this is some joke that she came up with. We all do it- whether tongue in cheek or dead serious. Be careful what comes out of your mouth even if it’s a campaign promise! It’s part of living a fasted life as well.
There’s a time to speak truth to power and there’s more than one way to do it. We can either take the kind of route that people like Bin Laden do or we can take the example of Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr. and Ghandi- take your pick. so to those of you who show up o the T.E.A Party on the 4th of July remember FREEDOM IS ULTIMATELY IN CHRIST JESUS! If you don’t know Jesus, we can take care of that too.
