Jesus said in Matthew 22:21
Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
Who does America belong to? Look at our coins. The statement above was made by Jesus and it is a reminder of what the Founders determined their nation to be--a nation under God. The founding fathers left us with a guideline for this nation for their posterity to receive the blessings of God. But unfortunately we have strayed far away from their intent that today we hear Obama applauding a lifesyle that the Founders considered an abomination for their standard was the word of God. When the word of man becomes the standard then the path becomes very crooked indeed.
Today the President (along with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi among others) is very proud to have signed the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell as if today marks their freedom when in truth all it did was give glory to this lifestyle. Did he just forget that recently Bradley Manning of this same lifestyle, a traitor, just gave our nation's defense secrets? Of course not. What a sad day today is in America when what God calls evil and an abomination --is being held up with pride by some of this nation's highest leaders. But at the same time we have to remind ourselves that God is sovereign and he will not be mocked by the ways of man.
Thank God there is a new Congress coming up--there is hope that again some maybe many in the halls of Congress will be using the right standards again. DADT may have been repealed but I daresay in the hearts of many Americans this will be a rally cry for 2012 especially in light of how the lame duck Congress and those senators did not even want to have proper hearing on this most important issue. Standing up for our military will be the least we can do for those who died for us.
Also, the unkindest thing we can do to those under the bondage of the homosexual lifestyle is to not point out that the price of that sin is hell for eternity. That would be the unkindest thing of all. Their so-called friends in that lifestyle will never tell them that but just like everyone else that death comes too--we will not wake up on the other side to our friends but before Jehovah. Read the Bible and find out what happens for it means forever and I pray our leaders will realize God will not be mocked--He will have the last Word. The Founding Fathers whose wisdom is unequalled by anyone in our nation's leadership today--knew that-- and that is why our national motto is "one nation under God."
In Nahum Chapters 1 and 2--God had his way with Nineveh--though they listened and repented when Jonah spoke--eventually they went back to evil and is no more. God is sovereign and he will have his way. We need to learn from the past so that we can know how to behave today as a nation, as a people.
The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.
The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
