“We ought to obey God rather than men.” – Acts 5:29
This last week my ministry team made national news (again) as we came under fire for seeking and saving the lost. A deranged “Constitution teacher” (right) physically assaulted my street team ministry leader for stating that “separation of church and state” is not found in the Constitution.
We were not breaking the law; we were obeying God and the laws of our republic. The “Constitution teacher” was breaking the law. How does one see this as a defeat in the face of an assault on the American way, when we simply need to stand and claim the right that God gave us? We have God and the law on our side.
For the life of me, my friends, I do not and will not ever understand why the American people (Christians and patriots) stand back and give victory to those who violate the laws of our constitutional republic on a daily basis.
I spend more time encouraging my readers and radio show listeners than not. When speaking of governmental corruption, I repeatedly hear such things as, “There is no sense. There is nothing that we can do about it,” in essence carrying a mentality that the government has a right to break the law.
The professed church is no better: “Do you see what the devil is doing?” I ask the capitulators, did Jesus Christ suffer Calvary’s cross to give POWER unto VICTORY for the church? Why, yes, He did (1 Corinthians 15:57).
It is a good thing that our forefathers, veterans, apostles and prophets did not give up their sovereignty through fear of the enemy (an enemy that today is less than 1.7 percent of the American population). (see video)
Instead of magnifying the crime, why don’t the 312 million people in this country say thank you with their actions (1 John 3:18) to those who gave their all for the gift of salvation and freedom we now possess?
America has the freedom – and a duty – to right the wrongs.
The great marvel in America today is the lack of Christianity and patriotism – which clings itself to American privileges and neglects freedom’s obligation.
At one particular high school lyceum in Missouri, I was advocating life by showing a picture of a little boy whose father and mother stood up for life by having surgery on their baby in the womb, rather than killing him through abortion.
The principal interrupted my presentation and gave students the opportunity to leave. When almost everyone stayed, the principal then forced the students to leave. The response was a standing ovation (in my favor) by the entire student body and staff for standing my ground.
A similar thing happened in Arkansas:
I am not going to ask for permission to magnify the American cause – especially from those who are traitors to the Bible and the Constitution.
Noah Webster, who wrote Webster’s dictionary, was known for teaching millions to read and not one to sin. He stated:
“The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all of our civil constitutions and laws. … All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”
It is time, America, to stand up, not to sit down. Not only is God on your side, but also the laws of our republic.
