Authority of Christians

Are we our brother’s keeper?… Hmmm…What about the body? What about Christians in other countries?

We see in the world many attacks on fellow Christians, who we must remember are part of the same body of Christ as us….but some Christians are hurting and die needlessly. Like those the Lord said who slept early. (1Cor11:30) You see sometimes “we” could change, or do something to prevent it, and continue on here serving the Lord. Sometimes we have the choice. ( Philippians 1:23-25 ) As Paul seems to have thought, having almost lost all hope…but deciding it better for their sakes to remain and help them. Who sent him help in his distress….Hmmmm…
And sometimes one nation’s Christians do not do all they can to assist other nations Christians as they should, as it is just a different location in the body….If “we” are of one body…then we should care for “all” our body, and keep it strong and more useable… As Christ does the church.
( Eph 5:29 )- “After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church–”
Or we will be rendered limited in our scope to reach out more effectively to the lost…which is part of the devil’s plan since the beginning.
And sometimes “we” do not go assist when a brother falls attacked by satan, to raise them up again…instead just accepting what we see as final. As Paul taught by this example to the church, when he did not accept circumstances, and went and raised up the boy who fell from high window, restoring him to the body. (Acts 20:9-11 )
Many would have accepted those circumstances and said sadly, “God took him home, it was his time.” Not Paul. Because we are all one body… And Christ works through “us” on this side of the cross! So “we” are to equip, strengthen and protect the body we have now, as much as is in our power to do so…and not just focus on seeking to add more to the body daily. Because many Christians are under attack in the world, and need all the assistance they can get, anyway they can get it.
Not everyone is called to be a martyr…but all are called to die to self.
Is there something …anything “you” could do here to help a brother somewhere else under attack? Yes we must pray ! And sometimes, also make a phone call perhaps? Or send a email to your congressman?
Because sometimes the right hand, must help, and care for the left arm, so it does not “needlessly” get amputated from the body, simply because of a lack of attention to the circumstances affecting it. Think on that.
The Lord has called “us” to help His body “and” also reach out to the unsaved. ( Prov1:24 )-“I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.” And the voice of the attacked comes to us in those words as well…because WE are the body of Christ. The bible says when YOU have done “all”…then you can stand.( Eph 6:13 ) Have you done all yet? Have you done anything?… to try and help those Christians under attack in other countries?…
Notice the armour is to be PUT ON by “us” over the whole body “for protection”, and “also” to allow the body “to fight” victoriously over the enemy. We “believers” in Christ are one body…So ask what you can do here now, and find something for your hand to do for the Lord… because i believe some die needlessly. … Have you done all for them? Have you thought about the power you do have from your “current” position of safety here in this nation? Well think on it. Maybe you were called for such a time as this. ~ Rev Ernie Harpster

Saturday or Sunday does it matter?………… Just make it in Spirit and Truth!

Saturday or Sunday does it matter? Ok.. So I was asked strongly ( I am being nice) to give my personal, but “if possible” biblical opinion of a born again Christians being required to “worship” on Saturday or Sunday. Which in my opinion “we” are not required to worship on Sunday either! But I was told “biblically” we must on Saturday, as we are to now fulfil the law because of Jesus. But did the bible really say or show this to us “Christians”?
My answer was .” we” as Christians only live on this side of the cross… not the other side.
So now having prayed and read and studied some more I will answer more biblically.. I do not like to “argue” but like Paul did, I will debate my scriptural position as I believe we are only “alive” in Christ on this side of the cross. And the law on other side of the cross killed us, as law only gave strength to sin.(1Cor15:56)

But I was told Paul taught on Saturday in the synagogues… And did so after the cross. And so I found plenty of info “scripturally” in bible, and online, some that I have quoted here too, regarding this subject which agrees with Paul’s teaching in Romans, Galatians, Hebrews, and this in (Ephesians 2:13) that we are “not under law or ordinances”, but are as Paul clearly taught under grace through faith, while “in” the resurrected Jesus Christ. Saying that is how we got saved.(Eph 2:8-9). So then how does Paul teach this and seemingly do opposite by going to synagogue on Saturday ? And remember Paul had also confronted Peter in Acts for going back to other side of cross in “life style”,when Peter was saved.(Gal2:2-16).

But it is also true Paul did go to synagogues and teach so….” What we do have, are frequent examples of Paul preaching to non-Christian Jews in THEIR synagogue on THEIR Sabbath day, that “they” are lost without Jesus! Should this surprise us? (Jesus did the same thing) Do Sabbatarian Pastors “keep Sunday” if they preach in a Christian church on the first day of the week?” …Of all the many passages…” None of these passages, or any other in the New Testament, ever speak of Christians worshipping on the Sabbath day.

If Paul preaching to Jews on the Sabbath day proves he kept the Sabbath, then it also proves Paul kept synagogue worship as well!” …..(As was required by law.) If Paul “kept the Sabbath” because he preached Christ to non-Christian Jews on THEIR Sabbath day in THEIR synagogue: then Paul also kept all the other ceremonial laws that the non-Christian Jews practised while he was there as well… So.. “then a Seventh-day Adventist pastor “keeps Monday” just because he preaches to Muslims in their Mosque on Monday that they are lost without Christ!

And…Then a Seventh-day Adventist pastor “keeps Sunday” just because he preaches to a church of “Sunday keeping” Christians on “Sunday” that they are breaking the Sabbath law.
“What proves too much proves nothing at all! ” as I learned…. And as we see in (Acts19:8-9)

Paul removed himself from going anymore to a synagogue for two years teaching in school of Tyrannus daily!
But we also see Paul taught daily, but teaching does not say keeping Sabbath either

And just because the very first preaching of the Gospel occurred on the day of Pentecost, does not mean a Christian must keep Pentecost! (Acts 2:1-38)
Even though Paul also rushed to get back to Jerusalem “on” Pentecost: (Acts 20:16)
and Pentecost always fell on a Sunday! ( Lev23:15-21 ) And as commanded to worship on it. “A holy convocation.”.
Does this mean he was keeping Pentecost feast?
No! It provided him a great opportunity to teach on Jesus grace!

No where after the resurrection is “keeping the Sabbath according to the commandment” said.”.. Although many things are repeatedly said, and reinforced..but not that.
I know some have said, But “In (Acts 18:4), Paul’s custom was to worship on the Sabbath with Greeks. This proves it was not a Jewish worship service but a Christ centered worship service separate from the Jewish synagogue worship. The Greeks were uncircumcised and did not keep the Sabbath or the Law of Moses ” … “Notice the word “persuade”. Paul’s work here was 100% evangelism. There is no example of Paul ever meeting on the Sabbath day for worship.

Notice also that these were “unbelievers” in Christ before Paul preached to them. Yes they believed in the Jewish system, but the Bible says in (Acts 14:1), that they BECAME believers proving Paul’s work there was evangelism not worship.
The Greeks were Jewish converts to Judaism known as “proselytes.” ..So they were not pagan Greeks but Greeks who “practised” the law of Moses and kept the Sabbath. just as if the Greek person was a native Hebrew. The only Greeks that were in the synagogue would be these “proselytes”. These Greeks certainly were “not Christians”.
(Acts 13:43) “Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God.”
(Acts 14:1) “In Iconium they entered the synagogue of the Jews together, and spoke in such a manner that a large number of people believed, both of Jews and of Greeks.”
(Acts 17:4) “And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women.
(Acts 18:4) “And he was reasoning in the synagogue every Sabbath and trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.”..

And some have also said  “Paul kept the Law”, therefore the Sabbath is still binding!” (Additional Sabbatarian proof texts: Acts 21:20-28; Acts 24:14; Acts 26:22; Rom 3:31)…Please look closely here…

” (Acts 21:20-28) “And when they heard it they began glorifying God; and they said to him, “You see, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed, and they are all zealous for the Law; and they have been told about you, that you are teaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses,… “telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs”… “What, then, is to be done? They will certainly hear that you have come. “Therefore do this that we tell you. We have four men who are under a vow; take them and purify yourself along with them, and pay their expenses in order that they may shave their heads; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been told about you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Law.
Acts 21:20-28: says forsake Moses & circumcise = keeping the Law

If Sabbatarians are right, then they better start also practising circumcision
But we do not “require” this either, as now our hearts are circumcised not the flesh!(Rom 2:28-29 ) We are not under law. (Philip 3:3)

“Paul understood that Moses had prophesied Jesus coming. To “give heed to Jesus” is how you KEEP THE LAW of MOSES! Think of it as the law of Moses’ own self destruct mechanism, it’s power was cancelled. Moses told the Jews to keep his law UNTIL Jesus came. Then they were to ignore the Law of Moses and listen only to Jesus. In that way,  Christian’s who exclusively obey Jesus could be said to be keeping the Law of Moses. This is what Paul means by the following verses:

(Acts 3:22) “Moses said, ‘The Lord God shall raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed in everything He says to you. ‘And it shall be that every soul that does not heed that prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.
(Acts 24:14) “But this I admit to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect I do serve the God of our fathers, believing everything that is in accordance with the Law, and that is written in the Prophets; having a hope in God
(Rom 3:31) “Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law”  (Only through faith in Christ)
(Acts 26:22) “And so, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He should be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and gentile.

When Paul says that he “kept the Law”, he was referring to the fact that Moses and the prophets foretold of Christ. and that being a Christian was foretold in the law. In a very real sense it was the Jewish “non-Christians” who refused to heed Jesus, who were in fact REJECTING WHAT MOSES SAID! …. For what the law could not do God did or us!..As God said through Paul.

(Rom 8:3-4) Amp-For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [[a]the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [[b]subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice],
4 So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit].”

And says ..
(Gal 3:10-18)Amp-” And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them.
11 Now it is evident that no person is justified (declared righteous and brought into right standing with God) through the Law, for the Scripture says, The man in right standing with God [the just, the righteous] shall live by and out of faith and he who through and by faith is declared righteous and in right standing with God shall live.
12 But the Law does not rest on faith [does not require faith, has nothing to do with faith], for it itself says, He who does them [the things prescribed by the Law] shall live by them [not by faith].
13 Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified);
14 To the end that through [their receiving] Christ Jesus, the blessing [promised] to Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, so that we through faith might [all] receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit.
15 To speak in terms of human relations, brethren, [if] even a man makes a last will and testament (a merely human covenant), no one sets it aside or makes it void or adds to it when once it has been drawn up and signed (ratified, confirmed).
16 Now the promises (covenants, agreements) were decreed and made to Abraham and his Seed (his Offspring, his Heir). He [God] does not say, And to seeds (descendants, heirs), as if referring to many persons, but, And to your Seed (your Descendant, your Heir), obviously referring to one individual, Who is [none other than] Christ (the Messiah).
17 This is my argument: The Law, which began 430 years after the covenant [concerning the coming Messiah], does not and cannot annul the covenant previously established (ratified) by God, so as to abolish the promise and make it void.
18 For if the inheritance [of the promise depends on observing] the Law [as these false teachers would like you to believe], it no longer [depends] on the promise; however, God gave it to Abraham [as a free gift solely] by virtue of His promise.”… We are only saved by grace through Faith! And only sanctified by Jesus too ! (1Cor 1:30).. An we cannot be separated from Him or His love (Rom 8:9 ) If I need any old testament proof of not needing to keep Saturday Sabbath. The law book is Leviticus. And as stated so well here I shall quote it. And may “biblically” prove we should worship as Christians on Sunday if I need to be picking a day. 

“LEVITICUS 23:5-11 – Look at verse 11: “‘And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord for you to be accepted; on the day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.'” The day after the Sabbath is Sunday.

Read on specifically looking at Leviticus 23:15 – “‘You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete sabbaths. You shall count fifty days to the DAY AFTER THE SEVENTH SABBATH; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord.'” This is the Feast of Pentecost. It was one of the compulsory feasts of Israel.

Note on the day of Pentecost, a Sunday God’s people were commanded to worship. God says, “On this same day you shall make a proclamation as well; you are to have aholy convocation. You shall do no laborious work. It is to be perpetual statue in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.” Leviticus 23:21.

If you think this is only applying to “ceremonial” days, Leviticus 23 starts out talking about the weekly Sabbath (see Lev. 23:1-4). It is called an appointed time and a holy convocation, along with all the other feast days of Israel. No distinction is made by God between these holy days and the weekly Sabbath. He includes them as being equally holy. This would mean that under the Old Covenant the First Fruits Sunday and the Pentecost Sunday were as holy and sanctified as Saturday.

Jesus by His Spirit (Gal 4:6) continues by “grace” to strengthen us (1Tim 1:14) along with faith and love! And love makes faith work ! (Gal 5:6 ) And God is love!(1John 4:8 )…. And so hopefully may “we” all come to the unity of the faith! (Eph4:3)Amp- “Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.”

I therefore say “focus” on and believe in, and follow the resurrected Jesus on “this side” of the cross of Christ Jesus. And worship Him on everyday you have breath! And rest “in” the Lord of the Sabbath. (Mat 12:8)which also was said..but said to the “Pharisees” who argued about law… before the sins of mankind nailed to the cross canceling them AND the decrees against us. ( Col 2:14 ) Establishing the New covenant, thus making the Old Testament power against us…disappear. ( Hebrews 8:13 ) … Because the law is not for the righteous. (1Tim 1:9 )..  and “we” as believers are the righteousness of God in Christ. ( 2Cor 5:21 )… I think Paul taught and lived clearly, that no Sabbath keeping is “required.”…But it is a honour to assemble ourselves together, and should not forsake it! ( Heb10:25 ) to worship our Lord and saviour, and to take a rest day to to honour the Lord our God, made possible by His Spirit in us. As we are now the temple of the holy Ghost. (1Cor6:19)… We are the place of worship!

May we all be blessed together in Christ Jesus and what ever day you “chose” to worship Him,…

and may it just be as God desired in Spirit and in Truth. (John 4:24). Amen.                                                                                                                      Let us “clearly” follow the narrow road, and stay in the light… Of Jesus!  Rev. Ernie Harpster

God is SOVERIGN and He decides who rules over us … But how did He decide?… He let’s YOU choose!

Before the last elections I had made some statements about how I thought “Christians” were to be involved more in the process of governing their nation, and as Christ ambassadors were to speak and vote for God. (Choose) But many said at the time I should really be quite, and that God alone decides who resides in all positions of authority. And quoted me this which you can touch (these) verses with cursor to read (Rom 13:1) But now read this verse carefully as written in the Amplified bible-“Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.”… His permission it says.

So I was thinking on this again lately, especially in light of current events, with regards to law making, and Supreme court judges interpretation of law. And it came to my mind that God gives permission to His people to do things that are not always as He desired them to be done. He allows us to go on detours to learn from them and mature to get us to His intended goal. And it is true earth is not His goal for us… As heaven is our home as the old song says.

But then I remembered when Saul became King over the Nation of God’s people, it was the people who really made the choice, as Saul was not God’s choice!(1Sam 12:13) But it’s true God anointed Saul King, but only because God “honoured the decision” made by His people, and God “allowed” them this choice, but it was not God’s choice… as the people made the choice based on their own hearts desires…but God wanted the people to trust Him as their King, and wait to be allowed to choose a man like David, a man after God’s own heart. (Acts 13:22 ) and God’s ultimate plan for mankind! (Jesus came from line of David!) And we see God actually warned them what would happen if they choose to have a earthly King, and not seek what was pleasing to God. (1Sam 8:7-9 ).

We see latter as God warned, that it did not go well for the people with their choice of Saul, as the one the people had chosen to become “their King”,( by them really rejecting their God by their choice!) (1Sam 10:19), but whom God allowed them to have, so God anointed Saul for the “office position” God had granted the people the “authority to choose”…but King Saul failed. Because Saul did not lead the people by listening to God or God’s word, even though God gave Saul a prophet (Samuel) to hear and listen too, but he rarely seeks him, or listens to him!… Samuel who spoke the “Words of God” could guide Saul for God…But for Saul’s disobedience “rebellion” to the word told Him from Samuel.(1Sam15:23) God removed Saul’s “anointing of the office” and eventually removed Saul (Killed in battle).

Even though the people had voted Saul in as the leader of “their nation”, God had only permitted them this as a detour… but the choice was made by  “the choice of His people” because God allowed the people to have the authority, to see how they would “govern” themselves, “while they were waiting on their Messiah to come”, the one on whom Isaiah said the government would rest upon His shoulders! (Isaiah 9:6-7 )

But as we look back and can now see God brought them back on track to His intended plan with David (2Sam 5:1-5 ), as the “people learned”, and finally could now see for themselves, that they needed a leader in Government who was someone exactly like God himself would pick!…Someone who would honour God and His word above all else, men with integrity, and the people finally became “unified” as one nation under God…When all the elders now also voted for David to become King over Judah and not just Israel..unifying the nation again! …. David was a man who always agreed with God’s word even when he fell short personally…briefly. When he heard the Truth he humbled himself before God.

Today as I look back at this, and I see God was teaching them to govern themselves, but to govern in way’s that governing themselves would please God their master! And “we” are also to learn from this example! (Romans 15:4  ) And NOW on THIS SIDE OF CROSS “WE” are to do the same! “We”  have hope! As believers in Christ, children of God and as a holy nation, (1Pet 2:9) “we” are to do the same thing as back then, “we” are to build the Kingdom of God, being light in our nation, (Psalms 18:28) everywhere our feet touch, and posses the land.(Joshua 1:3) for God to rule and reign!..that means “Govern” (and vote) as closely as we can by our agreeing with God’s word, which were told to desire things done “on earth as done in heaven”! (Mat 6:10) Because “until” Jesus returns..God only works “through His people”…His people He empowered to build His kingdom now on earth as in heaven.

So prayerfully “we” as believers should choose people for an office, (vote) as would be pleasing to God. People whom we are told to also submit too in Romans. Someone to rule over “govern” us that God would approve of, who will enforce or make laws right for God’s people, and ALL the people! For God gives only good gifts. (James 1:17) And as ( Rom 13:1 or See amplified verse above at begining) it also means, by God’s permission… we are permitted the “authority” to choose them and be pleasing to God!… Nothing has changed since the lesson of Saul and David, as God does not change! (Mal 3:6) Why give us this authrority?

We are given this authority by God to also continue to prepare “us” today for Christ’s coming! When “we” will rule and reign with Him! (Rev 20:4  ) Under His authority alone, as the Government will ALWAYS and forever rest upon His shoulders. But right now… how “you rule now” determines how much rule you’ll be rewarded to have latter “with” JESUS! (Luke 19:16-17 ) in YOUR next thousand years of life with Jesus on earth! As YOU are right NOW in God’s eyes “practising” by being His ambassadors(2Cor 5:20) “here on earth” for Him now, with the authority he left you here to expand His Kingdom …while He is seated in heaven!(Eph 2:6) And like the people of God of old, “we” are to learn to rule on earth,(Govern” because as He is so are we to be on earth! (1John 4:17). The Government rests on His shoulders…now it is to work through us…Until our Messiah returns again.

So I ask you to examine yourself, (2Cor 13:5) How have “you voted as a Christian” since YOU became old enough to vote as a Christian? Or how did you vote in last election, or did you even vote? Or did you just bury “His authority HE gave you” to be steward of for Him? Because when the “master”.. “your Lord” comes back, how you will rule with Him THEN, is determined by how “you rule” with your self governing authority NOW! That is this parable exactly, and it don’t end favourably for the one who hid it!  (Luke 19:20-27 ) Don’t hide it!

God has said “ask of me” and I will give you nations! (Psalms 2:8 Amp) Hey Church…How about our nation!? Are you asking? Are you following His word like a light to your path? And how about voting like you follow Christ,and His word for people that honour God’s word… and vote like YOU expect Him to come back, because He WILL take an accounting of “you” to see how well you use His authority! (That is what the parable is saying) Your rewards when He returns depend on it…. How well you live your NEXT thousand years is determined by you right now!

The people in the old testament failed when they picked Saul, even though God allowed it and “anointed him for the office” for a season, but He was not what God desired them to pick!.. “means vote for”.  But we are now equipped with the Holy Spirit and therefore we should not fail… God said He would guide us and show us things to come! ( John 16:13 ).. In this nation do you have ears to hear, and eyes to see? (Mat13: 15-16 )

I had posted some things in facebook before the last presidential elections, and said that some things could come about if we do not act like Christ’s ambassadors, and vote our bible, and use our authority to vote for someone close to what God would want. I was at that time told to be quite by some, and others said it did not matter, as God would take care of us, and He is sovereign to put in all positions of authority whom He wants, and it was not really my place to say these things it was a personal decision…Really? Still think so? (You know who you are).

So I ask you… can we please get off the detour now! And act like God’s own people, a holy nation who is being prepared to rule and reign with God when Christ returns, and start practice “governing” like we are supposed to be,  like Nehemiah and Daniel did,  as on this side of cross we are already given All authority in heaven and earth though Christ to live here now, and use His authority for Him over every weapon of the enemy! (Luke 10:19 ) And we are actually restored now though Christ, to what God intended in the garden, where he said multiply and rule over and “have dominion” over! (Gen 1:28) And subdue.

Start to practice now, cuz I’m sure Samuel was tired of enduring the lesson along with God’s people in His day after they were warned and still picked Saul…me too! Can we change this nation? God shows us in His word We can!..When we honour God’s word above all else. And not choosing our own way.

Practice governing now by agreeing with God as close as possible with your vote, and tell those in authority ruling now,  to agree with your opinion, (your opinion is supposed to be the bible) And God has even given us email access to your congress men and women, (who make our laws of this land.) It is time to take a firm stand church! And be one nation under God… AGAIN! Jesus is still coming…and your rewards depend on what you do now with the authority given you… Choose wisely! Choose you this day whom you shall serve! (Joshua 24:15)  Because if you can not rule this nation as Christ’s body, as His ambassadors… speaking for the one YOU say is YOUR true King of your life!…How shall He give you much more authority later? Like the parable said! ( Luke 19:17 )

God does not change I just showed you that, so do not be too short sighted… eternity is a long time, so is a thousand years (the millennium reign of Christ on earth!)…. And God is still preparing “us” now,(while you live on earth) as His people, His children…not just to advance His Kingdom and help others now, or prepare us to just barely make it to heaven, but for us to be prepared for living in eternity latter with Christ!

Now.. will you rule with Him..or not?…Then Choose (vote)for blessing or cursing…it is your choice(Deut 30:15-16) But Christians get to make the choice now for pleasing God…and He is watching to see if He shall reward you more… For the authority He already gave you!  God wants to reign through you now on this side of the cross! It is right NOW about YOU, recognizing the authority of a Christian here!

Church of America… God’s waiting on you, do not again reject God by your choice, with your vote. God had warned His people before, and they rejected it….are you listening now? Do your ears hear? I hope so. (Hosea 4:6)

Now…Clearly follow the narrow road…stay in the light of God’s word!
