January 20, 2009 will be, no doubt, a day marking the beginning of some of the most significant political decisions this country has ever experienced — and, in my opinion, one of the saddest days in the history of this once great nation. I decided not even to comment on the planned events of the inaugural week — for some are so vile it’s actually shocking to read. I write this two and a half days before the actually “swearing in” of the next President of the United States of America… One nation, so divided, with liberty and justice for a lot – but not all. And the new President will likely sign into law legislation that will further prevent and deny liberty and justice for all. Some of the activities, the “prayers” and participants in the inaugural show truly are a grievous departure from what was once the government based on biblical principles.
Blessed is the Nation whose God is the LORD…”
Biblical prophesy foretold these signs of the times when men would worship the created more than the Creator and when men would be fools though professing to be wise and when men would not retain God in their thinking. Truly, this is an incredible time in history and has been known by the LORD from the foundation of the world. Even so: Come Lord Jesus.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” — Romans 1.16-32
God help us all.
