Tonight we will witness State of the Union Address. On the show tomorrow I am sure that that will be the topic which Dan and I discuss during our BC Zone segment. I am also sure the James Williamson will weigh in on his thoughts on the subject. Over the course of the next few days and then the next three years we will be subjected to the issues that are going to be expressed during this speech. While I will probably spend sometime yelling at the television and shaking my head in disgust as he lies and lies and lies, I must also face the fact that his father, the father of lies is guiding his tongue. So I want to give you a few highlights and lowlights of what I see as the State of the Union.
Our nation is in crisis. We have an out of control federal debt issue. Scripture says be neither a borrower or a lender. We must reject the government take over of the role that the church was and is supposed to fill. The church is responsible for the care of its members and society at large. Not just in meeting the temporary needs of those who find themselves on difficult times, but by fulfilling the great commission. This includes sharing the gospel but it also includes raising up Godly men and women to lead their homes and their communities. We can not expect a turn around of this nations deplorable condition without a change in the hearts of men and the homes of those who call themselves Christian. Morality is a key component of our success as a nation. When our moral compass is pointing South as it is right now we are in trouble. The State of the Union would be drastically improved if this nation were once again behaving like a Christian Nation. There is not any part of our national dilemma that is not affected by the ideology of those who have rejected God and His values and have instead embraced Secular Humanism. A godless society, will not ever do the “right” thing because if we believe that bible is true we understand that man is evil. He has been infected by sin and without the intervention of Jesus Christ he is unable to change that nature that is in him. The state of our nation is revealed in our solution to population control. Abortion and euthanasia are not methods of birth control or population control, but they are forms of murder. We are living in a murderous and adulterous generation. The idolatry of self is running rampant and it is no more evident than in the man who will deliver a speech tonight. His actions show forth his desire to “change the fundamental structure of America”, he is the first President to reject the notion that this is a Christian nation. He is the first President to openly attack the family through his support of sodomy as a form of marriage. He is an avid supporter of abortion and has over seen the greatest funding of that endeavor in our History. He has also stated through his AG that homeschooling is dangerous to America and has directed members of his administration to attack Christians in our military. He has sent funds and weapons to our enemies in the middle east and Mexico. All of this and his continued refusal to answer for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi are symptoms of a sick heart. This is a man who is so completely lost in his delusional state and has so given himself over to the forces of evil that he truly believes all of his lies and has justified them by his hate for everything that America has stood for. He is a reflection of the State of our Union, a nation which was once founded on the ROCK and has now crashed up upon a rock. A nation that has lost is identity and is wondering in the desert. A nation that has left behind the promise maker to pursue the promise taker. We are where we are because we have chosen to be silent. We have been told to be tolerant, to deny the realities of the effects of sin because it might offend someone. To turn the other cheek and allow the rebellious, the lost and the blind to tell us what our faith is supposed to look like. We are guilty of trampling over the blood spilt by our savior and calling evil good and good evil. In the history of God He has used kings of foreign nations and evil men to force His people to come back to him through oppression and suffering. How much more suffering will we require before we recognize the State of the Union and repent and turn to Him. The low light is the place that we find ourselves. The highlight is that thi does not shock or surprise our God. He is bigger than our troubles and He has placed us here for such a time as this, therefore we must remember who we and whose we are and then walk out our faith and bring captivity captive, it is time to pull down every high thing that exalts itself against our God.
John Quincy Adams had this to say, “The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made “bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God” [Isaiah 52:10]
Tonight the man who speaks will speak for his father, the father of lies, tonight I will pray to my Father and ask that eyes and ears be opened to recognize the deceiver and pray for his salvation or his removal. Will you join me?
