We are living in the days of deception as time grows short. It is sad to watch as a lie has now been declared the truth. Most people have been blinded by the lies of the enemy. They have no idea that judgment is upon them.
In Matthew 24:37-39, Jesus talked to his disciples concerning his return saying, “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man“. These are the times we live in now. The road to destruction is wide and many are on it because they believe they have a lot of time to make a decision for Christ. They are dead wrong.
With the increase of evil on this earth, sin has become the new norm. Recently, Wendy Davis, a Democratic lawmaker from Texas, filibustered for 11 hours to prevent a vote that would disallow abortions after 20 weeks of gestation except for the life of the mother. At 20 weeks, the unborn child could conceivably live outside the womb. However, in a godless society, women are demanding their right to kill their “inconvenient” child through abortion for whatever reason they choose. Ms. Davis acted as though she should get the Nobel prize for her work to stop this vote and thus allow thousands more children to be murdered by abortion. She is not only blind to the evil of her action, she is a puppet for the enemy. She is being used to pervert the laws of God. Jesus said, ” For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” (John 3:18)
The picture above is of the sign I have in the front of my yard. It reads, PRAYER – AMERICA‘S ONLY HOPE. I also had placed this sign in front of a business I had owned. I was appalled when the police showed up one day to say that they received a complaint from a citizen who was offended by my sign. The officer said that the sign was okay to leave up but they had a duty to respond to a complaint. Imagine the mindless audacity of a person who would call the police to do something about a sign that was on my property! Our taxpayer dollars were used to take this officer of the streets of crime to respond to a sign that someone just didn’t like. People seem to think that first amendment rights are for everyone except Christians as even the mention of prayer has become offensive. Faith in God that was once the foundation of our country is now deemed intolerable. The forces of hell are at work.
We have turned from the righteousness of Christ. Instead of seeking to be transformed into the image of Christ, we are demanding that he bend to our image. Sadly, we have spiraled down from being a nation that was once mindful of God’s ways. Thomas Jefferson, 3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence said:
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event.”
My friends, I join with Jefferson in saying that I also tremble for my country. God’s justice cannot and will not sleep forever. We are heading for destruction as we continue in the path of rebellion toward our Creator. The darkness has permeated everything good we once stood for. In 2 Peter 3:10, the Apostle Peter warns us, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.” That day is coming soon. The only thing that matters is will you be ready?
( The sign above – Prayer, America’s only hope, can be ordered at www.fbctexarkana.org. I hope many will display these signs on their homes as a reminder that we must keep praying. It is our ONLY hope.)

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
