“This is what the LORD says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.  But you said, we will not walk in it’.”  Jeremiah 6:16

           We knew that it would eventually get this way but we just didn’t know how long it would take.  The persecution of Christians in America is well underway and grows continually worse each day.  Yet, I am so thankful to be a Christian!  I am thankful to be a part of something infinitely bigger than man’s dreams, more important than any aspect of this life and more powerful than any government.  I am thankful that some 45 years ago, Holy Spirit prompted and drew me into a love relationship with Almighty God by faith in Jesus Christ.   It is the best time ever to be a Christian!  The darker the world becomes (it is becoming darker by the day) the brighter the light and hope of Christianity shines forth.  However, it may literally mean losing our life here for the greater cause.  Are we willing?

            Have you seen lately how quick corporate America and others are caving in to the demands of political correctness and greed?  The agenda has now become “if we take your money away, you’ll convert to our way of thinking”.  The sad fact is that it is working among those whose only goal is to obtain more and more money.  It works where people have become devoid of common sense.  It works where God has been kicked out and there is no understanding of our need for Him.  However, one day (sooner rather than later) it will all come crashing down.  We hate to here it but it is certainly true!  When that day comes, will the money we have so ravenously accumulated be able to buy us out of the chaos and confusion?  We have a very vivid reminder in the Bible concerning God’s people and their ultimate rejection of Him.  God constantly desired to draw them back because of His love for them.  Yet, the time eventually came when God’s wrath prevailed against them and He “gave them over” to their enemies.  How long will America continue to exist with the decisions currently being made?  What has really been the reason for our existence anyway?

             Jeremiah had one of the most difficult jobs as a prophet. He was called to proclaim and even demonstrate to the people exactly what was coming.  Then, as now, the people paid very little attention. Heck, they were involved in the “good life” which amounted to a little of God mixed with a lot of the world.  Sound familiar?  It should sound familiar as we see the same scenario playing out every day in our culture.  The time is now among us for the “world system”.  In fact, it appears that its implementation could be any day.  We certainly cannot know the exact timing of God’s prophetic events but we can easily see what is going on and feel the spirit of antichrist all around us.  May God’s blessings completely shower your life as you shine brighter and brighter in a very dark place.

                                                                                                We love you,
