Wake Up America!Transcript from the Radio Series : Who Do You Choose To Serve?
To All Who Call Themselves Christians in America:
According to the latest Wikipedia poll in 2014 approximately 247 million Americans call themselves Christians. That about 70% of the population. If you are one of those 247 million; then when you identify yourself as a “Christian” are you proclaiming and declaring by this title that you are a believer in The Lord Jesus Christ.
Are you a person who believes in Him, and identifies with the criteria He clearly and plainly gave us in His Word.
In the Book of John we hear:
“The Lord Jesus Christ said unto them “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
And then again John 3:5-7 again quoting Him directly:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
These are His exact Words answering the direct question of Nicodemus. He clearly says without exception no one can truly be a follower and believer in The Lord Jesus Christ and have eternal life unless that person is Born Again.
Do you know what it means to be born again?
By His Word it means that one, as an individual, must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son Of God who came to this earth to die and pay the penalty for our sins. We are born into this sinful world separated from God because of our sin and stand in judgement already for the sins committed. But He so loved the world, (you and I) so much that He sent His only begotten Son that we may have eternal life.
Eternal life available to all, if they believe, if they have faith, if they trust Him, if they are willing to Love Him and Obey Him, this is what “to believe” means.
Does this mean that we can live a sinless life, or must live a sinless life on this planet in order to have eternal life? No it is not possible, “there were none found righteous not even one.” His grace, mercy and love abound and are openly and freely given to all who ask. But they must be willing to do one thing and that is to believe in Him. Believe that He is the Son of God, believe that came and died for our sins shedding His own blood as the only acceptable sacrifice to The Father. Yes to believe that we are sinful beings and believe that His Word is truth because He is Truth. To believe in Him, means to Love Him and to Love Him means we must obey Him.
We as individuals or as a society cannot throw out His Word as wash water and then create our own set of rules, regulations and morals. We cannot willfully, defiantly and with purpose sin against our God and then expect His shed blood to wash us clean. He tells us this again and again in His Word.
Christians of America: Why do you choose to serve this world and the things of this world? If you are born again, then do you not know that this world in not your home. Do you not know that you are in this world but not of this world? I am speaking to all of you that are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Go and read John 14: – 17. Those who believe in Him, those who say they are born again. It does not matter what earthly church you may attend, or into what earthly church you were born, baptized, confirmed, married or currently attend, or for that matter what any church may teach.
Ask yourself these three simple questions:
Do you love Him?
Do you truly love Him?
Do you love Him and honor Him as Lord?
If you Love Him; then do you obey Him and His Word? If not; why?
If you Love Him then do you love your neighbor as much as you love yourself?
Please take a moment to stop, and consider your own actions. Actions are what we actually do in our life. The decisions and actions we make determine and show the world exactly who we are, speaking louder than any words we may utter or anything we may write. So do your actions show that you love Him? Do your actions show that you Love your neighbor as you love yourself?
We as humans can in our desire to have our ears tickled about the things of God get very tied up in different doctrines, theologies, self-examination and self-help philosophies, along with all kinds of “feel good” ministries and charismatic speakers. In our carnal minds we can get behind most any movement and justify almost anything as being from God; if it is presented in the right way. Simply look at recent history.
So here you and I stand today in one of the most turbulent and rebellious time in history as it regards the Creator of the Universe. Yet many of us calmly live our lives and embrace what is being presented as a new standard as simply disregard His established order and Word as meaning nothing. As if He does not exist. In fact our society bolds claims He Does Not Exist, we not only teach this to our children but then penalize and degrade those who disagree.
We are a nation that claims to be Christian, a nations that prints on our money the Slogan “In God We Trust”, a nation with over 300,000 stone and brick supposedly Christian Churches. And yet we as a nation have very little or no regard for Him or His commands.
The main genre of the music we listen to glorifies brutality, sex, violence and every unholy thing that is out there.
Our television and movie entertainment embraces violence, death, mutilation, the occult, with graphic pornographic sex, and we call this fine art and worship it by bringing it in our home every day not only exposing our children to this but drenching young innocent minds in the sewage.
In the disguise of loving one another we have annihilated our morality and compromised our respect for any of His moral commands. We defiantly shake our fist in His face telling Him “we know better than He because we are now enlightened” and then we condone sin and call any that speak out against such sin as being evil and hateful when they do not embrace, condone and rejoice in the deviant, immoral and barbaric lifestyle we are trying to make the norm.
Many of us kill our babies from the womb because they are inconvenient and will burden our lifestyle; or we purposely have more children from various fathers to increase our income from the public coffers, with many times very little regard for their wellbeing once born.
We have told our children there is no right of dignity in being male or female. And now force them into this mold by the way we treat and educate them. We cry from the pulpit that we are not to judge, calling it hate and then hold no one to any standards including our clergy. Their personal lifestyle and choices are really not ours to judge as long as they simply tickle our ears on Sunday and be there when we have a personal crisis to console us.
Deviant behavior, that which the Lord calls evil and an abomination, is forced upon us at every level and we are now under civil and criminal penalty if we disagree. It will soon it will be a “hate crime” to hold to any standard that does not embrace this immoral sin in every conceivable way.
Where is the Christian Church today in America?
Where is the Outrage?
Where are those who call themselves Christians?
Where are the Born Again Believers?
How can you meaning anyone call Him Lord if you are not willing to obey Him?
Wake UP !!!! Don’t you see we are backstroking and playing games in this vile cesspool of sin thinking we are in at a luxury spa undergoing exotic treatments?
Have you not read the scriptures? Is His Word any part of your life? Do you not know that those who condone these activities are just a guilty as those who do them? Go and read the Book of Romans, start with Chapter 1:
Our God does not change. We have brought all of this upon ourselves and have condoned it by direct action or inaction and for the most part are not even willing to speak out against that which is evil. This generation has become absolute filth in His mouth and He will vomit us out.
Is there a remnant? I pray that there is and His world tells us that there will be, but if they exist in this country they are doing a very fine job of not showing themselves or speaking out against what is happening in any numbers.
Where is the repentance?
Where is the sackcloth and ashes?
Where is the absolute shame for our abominations?
Who today in the America is even willing to call sin – sin or evil – evil? I certainly don’t hear it from the popular media; I seldom hear it from the Christian media to any extent. And tell me where is it being declared from the pulpit? Why are the Christian Churches that claim to be followers of Christ not up in arms? Please pick up your Bible and read Isaiah 5: all and pay attention to verses 18 through 25. Go and read it for yourself. It says in part “Woe unto those who call evil good and good evil”.
Have you ever taken the time to look up the definition of The Word “Woe”: it means grief, great sorrow or distress, misery, heavy calamity, wretchedness, despair, regret
What is difficult to understand about Proverbs 8:13 when it says “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverted mouth, I hate.” Please go and read the entire chapter.
Yes, this is a spiritual war. He tells us the battle is not against flesh and blood, but in the heavenly realm. But don’t you see the god of this world has been unleashed upon this nation. God’s hand of protection is being removed and it seems no one has even noticed. We continue on in our lifestyle, our causes, and our man-made religions and doctrines and boldly declare ourselves to be Christians, but we don’t even read His Word or know what it truly means to be a Christian. We have no respect or fear of the Lord.
We are a nation that was raised up, blessed, protected and provided for. Now, we have with vile anger, literally spit in the face of our creator, our provider and our protector?
Do you not see? Do you not hear? Isaiah 6: We have eyes but we don’t see, we have ears but we don’t hear.
God gives every human being on this planet a built in sense of right and wrong. Even the heathen have this. Go and read Romans chapter 2: it is right there in black and white. The Lord tells us He will punish sin wherever He finds it. He further goes on to say that salvation is not given to those who know what to do, unless they do it. We stand without excuse.
We blindly race forward at breakneck speed to brainwash ourselves and our children teaching them and convincing ourselves that good is evil and evil is good.
Are we just too fat of heart to realize what He did on the cross? His blood was shed for “whosoever will believe in Him”. You cannot believe in Him if you do not love Him, and you cannot love Him if you don’t obey Him. His Grace and Mercy do not give us a license to sin, nor does His blood cover the sins of those who willfully continue in sin.
These are not my words. They are His. It is right there in Hebrews 10: go and read it. Look very carefully at verses 26 – 31. His Blood as payment for yours and mine salvation is not an open license to willfully sin and reject Him.
“ There will be a terrible punishment for those who have trampled underfoot the Son of God and treated His Cleansing Blood as though it were common and unhallowed, and insulted and outraged the Holy Spirit who Brings God’s mercy to His People.”
That is a direct quote from Hebrews. Go and read it.
He loves each and every one of us.
With love and respect don’t you see and know these are eternal life or eternal death issues. They are detailed and explained in such simple terms in His Word that even a child can understand. Yet those who claim to be born again believers seem to be blind to all of this. How can this be?
The Book of John clearly tells us that “as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” John 1:12 and then read John 6: all. It is so clear!
Do we claim The Lord Jesus Christ to be our Lord and King, or do we do as those who approached John the Baptist and claim to have Abraham and the religious teachings of man as our father.
We are standing in the filth and uncleanness of our sin, already condemned and sentenced to death by our actions, and by our transgression of His Law. It is only by the New Covenant, the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ shed on the Cross that an acceptable payment is available for those who “believe”.
So, if we claim the new covenant, if we stand under the cross, if we claim to be a son or daughter of the King, then our actions speak louder and with more truth than any words we may utter revealing to all who we actually do serve.
Each one of us needs to examine our own lives, actions, motives, the words we speak and intentions of our hearts.
If you have declared Him as your lord and Savior and if you have chosen Him in such that you regard yourself as a Christian, then the question is “Who do you choose to serve?” The answer is shown to all not by your words but by your deeds and actions.
The Lord Our God, is the creator of the Universe, loving us so much that He sent His Son that those who believe in Him should not perish but may have eternal life. Wake Up; Repent and go to Him on your face. Confess your sins and ask Him into every facet your life. Change your actions, your thoughts and your words such that they honor Him. Believe in Him. Love Him and be obedient to His Word.
By simply looking at the actions and the deeds of the people of this nation it is The God of this World who this nation serves. We have embraced this evil into our society, our government, our education system, our churches, our homes and our hearts.
May God have mercy on us. Please cry out to Him, repent and turn away from sin before it is too late.
All to His Glory!
