Removing God and prayer from public schools, court rooms and government buildings in the name of “separation of church and state” has done just that. It has separated the church, the body of the LORD Jesus Christ from all walks of life. And now, we are reaping what we have sown.

Slashing and shootings in public schools and on military bases. Terrorist threats, the unexplained disappearance of aircraft, Islam methodically moving ahead with their plans for total dominance.

Pastor Bill Randles writes ~
“Jihad, Shariah, al Taqqiya, terms once foreign, now all to familiar. Through the combination of the folly of immigration policy and multiculturalism’s destruction of western civilization’ confidence, Muslims have never seen better prospects for their long coveted subjugation of the western world.

Billions spent on security, countless hours spent waiting at checkpoints in airports and other transportation hubs, removing shoes, having magnetic images made of our naked bodies so that we won’t have to profile the adherents of a murderous ideology.

Violence has always been a factor in human history, but several factors contribute to my [Bill Randles] sense that the Red Horse is riding across the world. The heavy levels of immigration, legal and illegal contributes to increased levels of ethnic violence, crime, and the overall balkanization of whole populations, especially in the west. The entertainment media is saturated with violence. Children can soak themselves in vicarious murder and mayhem through the various video games, which are often a virtual orgy of violence. Even our athletics are hearkening more and more to the gladiatorial days, as cage fighters, the obscene parody called pro wrestling, and Ultimate fighting becomes ever more popular.

The acceptance of abortion as birth control is itself a phenomena of immense violence. Why should any be surprised by a Kermit Gosnell, whose “clinic” was raided after he botched one too many abortions and killed two of his “patients.” It was discovered that he had actually brought eight babies to term and murdered them with a pair of scissors. His squalid “women’s Health center” was overlooked numerous times by Philadelphia health inspectors. Why? They wouldn’t want to inhibit abortion in any way, thus this animal was allowed to practice “medicine” for years on the poor and ignorant.

Should we be surprised at the judgments overtaking us? The crime waves, terrorism, illegal immigration and the lawlessness that it engenders, are all manifestations of the Red Horse of violence who takes peace from the earth. The homo-sexualization of society on every level portends violence as well. In spite of the best efforts to disguise this unseemly aspect of the perversion, the truth can’t be long hidden. Sexual perversion is violent, even murderous. The Bible doesn’t portray homosexuals as ‘poor, oppressed and bullied minorities,” but as violently depraved sinners, who will stop at nothing to fulfill their lusts.

There will be no “Age of Aquarius” or any sort of humanistic utopia fashioned by our godless elite in spite of their best efforts. Already the Red Horse of violence is riding, and the only relief will be found in the new Ark, the person and work of our LORD Jesus Christ.”

What am I here for?  Why was I born?

The heart cry of tens of thousands as they search for meaning and fulfillment in their lives. The problem ~ “I” continues to get in the way.

We were created in His image, the Image of God, The God of all creation. Why? To worship, praise and honor Him. It has nothing to do with us, and everything to do with Him.

“The original song of worship ~ ancient and universal. You are worthy O Lord to receive glory, honor and power…! The basis for the worthiness? “For Thou hast Created all things…”. This is the song of worship to our Creator.”

God created us. He created and sustains the world in which we live. He created the sun, the moon and the stars, Galaxies rejoice at the mention of His Name. Skies erupt in expressions of praise through sunsets, sunrises, rainbows and Northern Lights.

But man wants more. It is not enough to worship, love, praise and adore our Creator. Of all of God’ creations, it is man alone that remains silent, turning a blind eye to the things of God and refusing to rejoice in the God of our Salvation.

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. [Romans 1:21]

…And for Thy pleasure, they/we are created…

It’s not about me.

Tragedy surrounds us.

Daily we face man’ inhumanity to man.

Another shooting at Ft. Hood, TX. Murder of the innocent continues, performed by government supported “Planned” Parenthood. Mudslides in Washington State, with many dead and missing. Noah hits $55.2 million in box office sales its first week. [Noah, a genius piece of propagandizing that is sure to lead many away from God under the mistaken belief that through left-wing environmentalism they are coming closer to Him. breitbart]

Evil, slowly, surely, steadily consuming the unsuspecting among us.

The evil of unrepentant hearts and minds. The evil of sin.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night... - and therein lies the problem.

Man walks in the counsel of the wicked. Man stands in the way of sinners, and sits at the seat of scoffers. Man’ delight is not in the law of the LORD.

Man gives no thought to God or the things of God. Man is happily content in his prosperity, position, pomp and power. Man gives no thought for tomorrow, clinging to manmade values - he who dies with the most toys wins. Man continues to ignore God even though the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament the beautiful work of His hands. God continues to call man to repentance, but man is not interested.

We no longer have time to grumble about the sad state of our nation or our world. We no longer have time to complain about the government or its leaders. We can ill afford to ignore our calling to compassionately pray and share the good news.

Seeing the people, He, Jesus, felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. “Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

We are all ministers of the gospel, all of us.

We are all called to evangelize, all of us.

As we approach Passover, the time which our LORD celebrated with His disciples. Before His betrayal, the last supper, His final words of encouragement and commitment to them. Let us always be mindful of all that He has done and continues to do for us as He stands before the Father, ever making intercession for us.

Mike Gendron/Proclaiming the Gospel’ recent article reminds us:

The world calls the greatest day on the Christian calendar "Easter" in an attempt to obscure or dismiss the supernatural miracle that took place 2000 years ago. As Christians, we should call it "Resurrection Day" in celebration of the glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He "was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead" (Rom. 1:4). We can rejoice in His triumphant victory over death, sin and Satan. However, we must never forget that the battle for the eternal souls of men continues throughout the world. Only the truth of God's Word can slay the lies of the devil. It is the duty of every blood-bought Christian to be actively involved in the Lord's army, to expose all forms of deception and to warn victims who are embracing a false and fatal gospel. Let us have a greater compassion for people who are committed to a religion without any real understanding of the Gospel of Christ.

According to God's great mercy, "He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" (1 Pet. 1:3). As ambassadors for the resurrected King of kings, let us emulate the apostles who gave "their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all" (Acts 4:33). Let us sow the seed of God's imperishable Word and pray, in God's providence, the seed will fall on fertile soil.

The Gospel is the greatest news anyone could ever hear because it is about the greatest gift ever given.”

Barack Hussein Obama met Pope Francis at the Vatican ~

“Wonderful meeting you. I’m a great admirer, “I bring greetings from my family.” Obama said.

Obama presented Pope Francis with a chest - inscribed: “Presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by Barack Obama President of the United States of America, March 27, 2014.”

The United States’ first African American president and the first Latin American pope both sharing messages of hope and change.

Since both men profess faith in a false religion, embrace the idea that all serve the same god and hope to see change in Israel, I wonder….

"Just as they have chosen their own ways, And their soul delights in their abominations, So will I choose their delusions and bring their fears on them; Because when I called, no one answered, When I spoke they did not hear; But they did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I do not delight." Hear the word of the Lord, you who tremble at His Word; Your brethren who hated you, Who cast you out for My name's sake, said, 'Let the Lord be glorified that we may see your joy,' But they shall be ashamed." Isaiah 66:4-5

 "An amazing thing is happening across the land. Jesus Christ is being 'reinvented'... right in front of our eyes and hardly anyone seems to notice or care." Warren B. Smith, False Christ Coming

Various religious organizations throughout the country bought out screens and distributed tickets to groups of thousands of people for "Theater Take-Overs" where Son of God was being shown..

Other theater buyouts for Son of God were held at Cinemark locations throughout the country. Mega-church pastor Rick Warren bought out theater screens throughout Orange County.

"In churches across America, the awe and holiness of the Scriptures are fading fast. While countless "born again" believers still delight in His Word, share His love, and pray for each other, the vast majority of church members have chosen a more secular form of "worship." Many feel free to interpret the Bible according to their own liking. Consequently, a widening gap is separating God's timeless Truths from the world's more culture-friendly adaptations." Berit Kjos/Crossroads

"We hope, said Roma Downey, that audiences leave theaters feeling they know Jesus more and also that they are reminded of how deeply he loved us," she said.... "At the end you feel incredibly humbled and loved – reminded that we are all children of God....  
We have felt support across all denominations … businesses are buying out whole theaters and donating the seats to churches, encouraging folks to come opening weekend and to bring a friend and to bring the whole family," she said. "We believe this message of hope and love will touch the lives of millions."
“I am the way and the truth and the Love”  Roma Downey
"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, nor take from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you." Deuteronomy 4:2

"If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.... For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I should not be a bondservant of Christ." Galatians 1:9-10  
"For if he that cometh preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit which ye have not received, or another gospel which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him!" 2 Corinthians 11:4  [i.e. don't tolerate heresy]   The Word, Jesus Christ
