Heaven Help Us

This week has been a huge set back for America as a civilized society. How long can anything exist when it chooses to destroy it’s own. Many are crying out against the new abortion law that pasted this week. It has been said that now an “abortion” can be done up to 15 minutes AFTER birth.

Christians are the majority of those crying out against this new law. The sad thing about that is that Christians are the majority of those Getting The Abortions according to the article link below.

18% Are Born-again/Evangelical. It breaks down like this

31.3% Catholic, 37.4% Protestant, 1.3% Jewish

Total of 70% of women that say they believe in God have abortions

8%  Are – Other religions

23.7% had no religious affiliation

We visited my wife’s Aunt Rosie who’s 91 at the nursing home some time ago. We were talking about relatives that just walked away from their children leaving them to someone else to raise. Aunt Rosie said, “they are like animals today.” In not knowing the difference between love and lust she was right. But don’t get between a mama of most animals and her babies.

I had a pet cat years ago, Jill. She followed me around everywhere. One day I was working in my shed about 200 feet from our house. Jill’s kittens were there when she saw the neighbors big lab walking up to our house. Jill took off wide open running straight for that lab. She didn’t stop until she was on top his head and was clawing at him. The lab got the message and took off for home. It’s sad when our animals have more compassion for their young than many so called Christian mothers.

Bishop Drew at “My Church” Faith Cathedral in New Iberia read 1 Corinthians 13 with a change of the word Love to Jesus today. We definitely need MORE of JESUS in us today!!!

1 Corinthians 13 NKJV

The Greatest Gift is JESUS

 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not JESUS, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not JESUS, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not JESUS, it profits me nothing.

JESUS suffers long and is kind; JESUS does not envy; JESUS does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 JESUS never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope,  JESUS, these three; but the greatest of these is JESUS.

Too many people that call themselves Christians have never really had a real encounter with Jesus Christ. If the Holy Spirit of God has been birth in you, what being “Born Again” really means, shouldn’t it have the power to influence a person to radically change their thoughts and actions. Christians without the Holy Spirit in them lack the power and influence of that spirit to be “conformed into the image of Christ.”

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

If you said a “sinner’s prayer” one day and never experienced a change in your desires, thoughts and actions in ways that are bringing you closer to Jesus Christ pray that prayer again and again and again until you do. How small do you consider God to be that His Spirit could be in you and have no effect on you. Think about it. It’s not hard to live the Christian life without being truly Born Again, it’s impossible. That’s why those horrendous stats are what they are in the Christian church today.

I told Bishop Drew a few years ago when I first started going there that I believe when God finally pours out His Wrath on this nation it will be because of His “so called people’s” sins, not the nation as a whole. Think about what this scripture that many Christians pray for our nation says,

2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Again I ask you, Is THE Church Changing the World, Or the World Changing THE Church?

The True Church of Jesus Christ that has the Holy Spirit living inside them, revealing to them Jesus, WILL BE Victorious over sin in their lives, Jesus said so.

Matthew 16:15-20 KJV
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

John 3:6 KJV
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
