I watched a little bit of the John Kerry Speech on the impending deal with Iran today. I wonder out loud who could ever believe that it is a good deal to arm your sworn and avowed enemies. Almost every time the Obama administration comes up with a plan that is detrimental to the country, he can always take it to the last minute and have just enough votes to ram his agenda through - (Obamacare, budgets, Iran, etc).
Again I am reminded that God is in control, and his great plan is being unveiled. As believers we should continue to pray for our country, our neighbors, our friends, and our family. Remember to be light! The world is seemingly getter darker with each and every day, the light shines brightest in the darkest times.
Stay Strong, Trust Christ, and Be Bold For Him! Chris
None of us can know for sure what this month will bring. It certainly seems that many things could happen that may prove exciting for us as believers. It is at this point that I am reminded to give you a word of caution: We cannot put God into a box, nor should we attempt to - It is God who holds all things, Keeps all things, knows all things - We are here on this earth as believers for one cause: To spread the Gospel! This is our mission! This is our purpose to serve Him and be the light in the world we live in.
Today we see the stock market continued to swing wildly dropping 470 points. As we approach the end of the Shemitah cycle on September 13th (Alul 29 on the Hebrew Calendar). We could see another shaking of our economy. My advise is to first, trust God, and know He is in charge. Second, be bold and unafraid when it comes to sharing the Gospel as the Gospel means "good news", and it is precisely the good news that the world is desperately needing. Finally, we should prepare - I think it is wise to make sure you have basic provisions stored up such as food, water, etc. in case we suffer a interruption in basic services in our country.
What I am certain about is that God is bringing judgment to our country. Our society has become dark, our culture has grown pagan, our discretion has been careless, our leaders have become lawless, and our nation has turned their back on God. Our Supreme Court has put the death nail in our country by altering God's institution of marriage. I would encourage each of you to read 2 Timothy 3, and ask yourself - Are we there yet?
Stay strong, Trust Christ, and Be Bold for Him! Chris
