For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Can there be any doubt what the major struggle in the world today is reallyt all about?
People, in my lifetime, I have seen a nation go from 'Leave it to Beaver', one of the most wholesome and principled shows ever, to 'I Love Dick', a show whose title literally is as disgusting as it is transparent.
The advent of modern communications technology has resulted in hundreds of cvable and satellite and streaming services, giving rise to some of the worst, most destructive, spiritually wicked and sexually deviant programs that evil mankind can dream up.
How is all this happening? It's simple, really. The church is failing. People are not praying. And for all of these "shows" to exist and succeed, there must be a market for them. In other words, people who claim to be Christians are watching these sick and perverse shows. People who claim to be good, God-fearing Christians are funding these evil programs and the channels they appear on.
People, we are now facing a crossroads as Christians. ou cannot serve man and God. You must choose. And those choices are not always going to be easy. You and I are creatures of habit, creatures that gravitate toward our favorite "guilty pleasures". But you cannot have it both ways. If you think you CAN have it both ways, you are deceiving yourself.
How can any real Chriostian pay money to companies that promote corruption of our young people, which encourages them to explore sexuality before they even know how to walk! If you are a cable or satelolite customer, you are funding this garbage. If you are patronizing strip clubs, you are funding human trafficking, and if you are listening to the grotesque evil music which glorifies evil, drugs, sexual deviants and angry defiance of God, you are not walking in obedience to God.
Now some of you may argue, "but JJ, we are no longer under the Old Testament law. We're forgiven, so we can do whatever we want to, as long as we ask forgiveness."
You know better than that. Jesus said "If you love me, keep my commandments". If you have had a true salvation experience with Christ, your life must change. It isn't a matter of opinion, it is written in scripture:
People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region of the Jordan.6 Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
People, America today is full of trees that produce no fruit. America's trees are flowery, but they are fruitless. And as such, they are bound for the great fire.
Your life must change if you are to be a Christian. Your life must be a testimony of your faith in Jesus, and it must reflect HIS righteousness.
If it fails to do this, you are fooling yourself.
America, today is the day for repentance, and for exalting Jesus, and rejecting worldliness. I do not know when the trumpet may sound, but I cannot say if you will ever have another chance to hear the word, and to have your heart moved by it. If you are afraid for the future for your children or grandchildren, then please hear the words: America, you are running out of chances to turn back to God, and to serve HIM with love, reverence and humility.
And a special note to President Donald Trump: Sir, for the sake of the cause, please refrain from childish, churlish tweets and tit-for-tats with lowlife "celebrities" who you are clearly allowing to get under your skin. Please drop the tweets and instead walk in the ways of Chroist, in humble service, seeking to edify, instead of argue./ Paul told us that to live is Christ and to die is gain. Paul also said he had to die daiuly in the flesh to allow the Holy Spirit to live through him.
So Mr. Trump, I implore you,. please move above the fray. It is beneath you, and it is beneath the office you now hold.
America, Jesus is coming. I cannot say when. But I know He is coming, and I know the signs of the season we now live in.
Look at the world around us. Loook at the strife, the evil, the floods, the famines, the wars and rumors of wars, the signs of this season mean we must walk faithfully in obedience to God's laws. We obey these laws not for fear of judgment, but because we love God, and Jesus, and we recognize the great salvation He procured for us. It becomes far too easy in this world to forget the great price Gopd paid for your salvation. We obey out of love and devotiuon to God who loved us so completely.
The clock is ticking, and we have between now and the trumpet's sound to be fruitful and fulfill our purpose, as ambassadors for Jesus in these extraordinary days.
