    Ezekiel's Temple Vision

    Thread Starter: Bryan Pergola

    Ezekiel's temple vision has come up in another post and I thought I'd start it on its own, no being sure if it has been covered in long past posts. I have no firm notion in the interpretation of his vision, but do have my leanings. I did have a...

    The Preterist Gap

    Thread Starter: Cyberseeker

    I’ve been somewhat surprised to learn that some Preterists finish Daniels 70th week in AD 70. They postulate a 40 year gap between the “cutting off of Messiah in the midst of the week” and the destruction of the temple in AD 70. We might expect...

  • Is the U.S. still a Nation Under God?

    As same-gender marriage gains momentum in the United States, and more people begin to accept the idea of these unions as a matter of civil liberty, the issue is being discussed more frequently. As with abortion, the topic of homosexuality and same-gender marriage will continue to be an emotionally-charged, controversial, and divisive issue—even among Christians.

    From a Biblical standpoint, any type of "marriage" between people of the same gender is as wrong and contrary to the natural order of things established by God as their unnatural sexual relationship is. Yet, in the final analysis, Christians have little say regarding same-gender marriage becoming just as sanctioned by the state as traditional marriage, as resistance to it steadily wears down. It has transcended the realm of the absurd to that of the inevitable--from a matter of moral turpitude to one of civil rights. Eventually, two men and two women exchanging vows at the altar will no longer be an uncommon spectacle.

    Yet, look around. We see God and His Christ being legislated out of the public square, divorce ending half of all marriages--often followed by additional divorces, an ever-increasing number of illegitimate children being born, more couples choosing to forego marriage altogether, Girl Scout leadership promoting abortion rights at the UN, boy scouts becoming girl scouts; and laws that sanction the killing of unborn babies, while while making it a crime to harm a dog. Should we really be surprised to see that we’ve come to the point of homosexual weddings? This modern perversion of the sacred institution of marriage is nothing more than the most recent symptom of moral decay in America.

    Today, it’s becoming ever more apparent that our society has succumbed to the dark spiritual powers around us that oppose God and His Christ. This should not come as a great surprise either, since Satan is the god of this present world system--until his time runs out, he and his minions are banished to the lake of fire together with Christ-rejecters, and the true God begins to reign over His eternal kingdom.

    With regard to same-gender matters—and all others related to morality, we must remember that the world is not obligated to abide in God and His precepts nor adhere to Biblical standards of morality. Nor should we expect it to, since it is at enmity with God. Jesus came to transform and save individuals from among the nations, not to transform and save nations. Yet, while God does deal one-on-one with individuals, rather than nations, all nations will come under His judgment when they embrace and represent ungodliness. And if the US continues on the path that it is presently on, it will become such an ill-fated nation, disgraced and swept into the dustbin of history.

    We cannot alter the course that our nation is on, or its descent into ungodliness and depravity. But we can steadfastly hold to our opposition to it, live our testimony, use the ballot box to vote for elected officials who still reflect our values, and most importantly, pray for both our nation and its leadership. Remember that God heard and answered Daniel’s prayer and supplication on behalf of his wayward people. God honors prayer when we pray in accordance with His will and purpose.

    For now, we must continue to shine the Gospel light into the spiritual darkness, and accept the fact that many will simply choose the darkness over the light. And we must hold fast to the uncompromised, immutable, everlasting truth of God's Word, as revealed through His Son; knowing that we, like Daniel, can but stand in our lot, and await the fulfillment of that which is ordained by God. Until then, let us pray that our country, which we once proudly declared to be “one nation under God,” does not instead, become a nation under God’s judgment.

    The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
    (Psalms 9:17)

      Ya know... forgetting God comes in so many ways and one of them, He calls being: "double-minded".

      Marriage has been established by God and is ONLY for a man and a woman to be ONE flesh. Anything else is against what God established. To even think otherwise... is to be double-minded.

      Please read and agree; according to Matt.18; Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth; shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth; shall be loosed in heaven;
      I say you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven; For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

      I Thank you Father; in Jesus name; that You said to be imitators of God; as dear children; And walk in love; as Christ also; has loved us and given Himself for us; as an offering; and a sacrifice to God; for a sweet-smelling aroma; and that we are putting away; all fornication; and all uncleanness; or covetousness; let it not even be named among us; as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness; nor foolish talking; nor coarse jesting; which are not fitting; but rather giving of thanks; For this you know; that no fornicator; unclean person; nor covetous person; who is an idolater; has any inheritance; in the kingdom of Christ; and God; that we will not let; anyone deceive us; with empty words; for because of these things; the wrath of God; comes upon the those of disobedience; do not be partakers with them;
      For Father; we were once in darkness; now we are in the light; in the Lord; that we walk as children of light; for the fruit of the Spirit is; in all goodness; righteousness; and truth; finding out what is acceptable to the Lord; And we will have; no fellowship with the unfruitful works; of darkness; but rather expose them; For it is shameful; to speak of those things which are done by them in secret; But all things that are exposed; are made manifest by the light; for whatever makes manifest is light; He says: Awake; you who sleep; arise from the dead; and Christ will give you light; see then that we walk; circumspectly; not as fools; but as wise; redeeming the time, because the days are evil; That we; do not be unwise; but understand what the will of the Lord is. that we; do not be drunk with wine; in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to one another in psalms; and hymns; and spiritual songs; singing and making melody; in your heart to the Lord, we will give; thanks always for all things to God; the Father; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; submitting to one another in the reveranuel fear; of God. Amen; so be it. parsonsmom.

      I guess is depends how you look at it, much of the government is run by wicked lying people, and they support minority groups like gays and the like, while having the money, power, and influence to do so. They control most of the media and education system brainwashing kids into becoming heathens. I think the majority of Americans are still Christian at heart, but I imagine it is declining.

      I don't think this nation has ever really been "under God". There have been countless attempts to be "religious"(lots and lots of cults) in one way or the other...but except for the Puritans coming here to worhip without being persecuted, America has had very little to do with Jesus Christ. The founding Fathers were loathe to mention Christ in most of their writings. True, even Ben Franklin could mutter a prayer over some serious need but as far as being dedicated to God, very few were.

      Its the same today. Notice how all the "God Bless America" stickers had disappeared just a few months after 911? Not sure that even getting nuked by Iran would change the devotion to secular/humanism in this country.

      America has definitely been blessed by God...but as you can plainly see...we have not returned the favor. The churches are the primary reason God is not known in this country. I would venture to say that fewer than 5% of so called Christians could even define what the Gospel is or tell why anyone would ever really need it. We have fooled ourselves into thinking God has to favor us as a nation. Give one reason why He should.

      I'm sorry that I only read a little bit of your post, but you (everyone) should do some research on the Illuminati agenda. Or if you don't feel comfortable looking into that too closely, just know that there are evil forces at work. Against God. Many people don't know (Don't be deceived).

      The media persuades and influences people to think a certain way. 50 years ago people would never accept what we see on TV today. They slowly push ideas into our mind until we accept them (i.e. the homosexuality), or until we hear about them so often we become jaded by the subject and we just think if as one more topic or headline.

      Open your eyes. All of you. I can't quote the bible, but I believe it. There are satanists and demons trying to turn the word of God upside down. They want us to take pleasure in evil things like materialism and vanity and money and forget about God and His good word.

      To answer your question bluntly, no. "America: Satan's Country"... A documentary worth watching if you want to know the truth about the world. Read the introductory warning carefully, and put your preconceived ideas aside for an hour.

      Best of luck down the rabbit hole. I'm only trying to save. God bless.

      I doubt that the USA was (or is) "one nation under God". After all, the peoples of other countries are also under God. Somehow, the article highlighted the problem of homosexuality, as if the problems with heterosexual promiscuity is not. But what about the mass consumption of different narcotics. The main population of the country lives in large cities and megacities. People in large cities generally forgot how man live in the woods in the midst of nature, everyone is chasing somewhere for money and a career, it's like in Madonna's song "American life". And are you sure that God likes this way of human life?
