THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS! by Earl Sutton

 

In 1996 a grain ship, “Bright Field,” was heading down the Mississippi River near New Orleans, when it lost control, veered toward the shore and crashed into a riverside shopping mall. The impact demolished parts of the wharf and injured 116 people. According to the Coast Guard investigation, the ship’s owner and crew had failed to repair long-standing engine problems. This is a clear example of not doing what you should do and receiving the consequences of bad decisions.

            The Devil deceived Eve into thinking that there would be no consequences for eating the forbidden fruit (Gen. 3:1-7). God said, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, ye shall not eat of it lest ye die” (v.3) The Devil said, “Ye shall not surely die.” (v.4) Eve dilly-dallied with the temptation and contemplated the possibilities that the Devil had suggested and threw away all restrain and ate the fruit!  Why?  The Devil deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for sin.

            The Devil continues to lie to us today and tells our society that a little sin won’t hurt, a little indulgence is not a problem, a little transgression will never hurt anybody! The Devil tells us that we are only human and go ahead and enjoy sin. The Bible says, “The way of the transgressor is hard.” ( Prov. 13:15)

            Our society believes that it can live in disobedience to God’s will by practicing homosexuality and never suffer the consequences. The scriptures teach that there will be consequences for our actions. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth unto the spirit shall of the spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:7-8) This basic principle applies to the physical world and spiritual realm as well. The word, “mocked” is a Greek word (mukterizete:) which means to turn one’s nose up at God. The point is that if a person sows to the flesh (homosexuality and sinful living) and turns up his nose at God, he shall go the way of all flesh, -- die and face the judgment of God where there will be consequences. (reap destruction – Gal. 6:8)

The scriptures emphasize the consequences of sin in other verses. Ezekiel said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ez. 18:4) Paul said, “The wages of sin is death.” (Rom. 6:23)  Over and over, again and again, the Bible under all circumstances, emphasizes that we reap what we sow and that sin is always followed by consequences.

            There is rebellion in the hearts and in the behavior of many people in our society today. In view of the fact that sin will always have consequences, what can we predict for the future? According to the basic law of sowing and reaping, the answer can best be given in the words of the prophet Hosea, “They sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hos. 8:7) There is one time of sowing (while alive), and there will be two times of reaping. We reap in this life and also reap beyond this life in the hereafter. Sin brings forth its consequences both here and hereafter.

            People may do things without realizing the consequences of their actions, but one day there is going to be an accounting! (Rev. 21:8)                                                                                                                                                                                           

HOW SATAN CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF US by Earl Sutton

HOW  SATAN  CAN  TAKE  ADVANTAGE  OF  US!

 

Satan has no concern whatsoever for our welfare and is actually out to hurt each one and condemn our souls. Satan is cunning, crafty, subtle, deceitful, and all of his pills are sugar-coated. He is very shrewd in his tactics and so polished in his approach but has never been able to keep a single promise, yet people continue to be deceived daily.

          The Bible says, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (II Cor. 2:10-11). Satan is trying to take advantage of us; and if he ever gets the advantage, it will be because we give it to him.

          The Apostle Paul was ever mindful of Satan’s intentions, and over and over he warns us to be on our guard against him. “Neither give place to the devil” (Eph. 4:27). This grave warning suggests to us that Satan can have a place in our lives and suggests that he wants that place. It also suggests that Satan can’t have that place unless we give it to him.

          We don’t have to give Satan that place, but we will unless we are mindful of his tactics. It is entirely up to us as to whether or not Satan fulfills his purpose in overtaking us. Jesus said, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man: and then he will spoil his house” (Mark 3:27). This is true with Satan. Before he can enter your heart and spoil your goods, he must first bind you. He does this by slipping into your life; and then after he has gotten a foothold, he will take advantage of you.

          How does Satan get an advantage over us? The Lord gives us the answer: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from  you” (John 4:7). When James told us to “resist” the Devil, he used the Greek word, Antistemi, which means to set against, stand up against, oppose, resist. It is clear that we are capable of standing against the Devil and are not helpless before him. As free, moral agents, made in the image of God, we have the capacity to choose to do right and refuse to do evil (Joshua 24:15).

          There must be a constant resistance of the Devil. When he tempted Christ it was said, “And when the Devil had ended all the temptations, he departed from him for a season” (Luke 4:13). The Devil departs from us for only a season, but we can be assured that he will soon return. For that reason, we must constantly watch and be on guard against him!

          The primary reason for Satan’s taking advantage of us is our ignorance of his devices. Ignorance is the arch enemy of Christianity. If Satan can keep us in ignorance, he can keep us away from God. Knowledge is referred to as the key; and with this key, we can  unlock the door in coming to God (Luke 11:52). Satan realizes this and, therefore, seeks to keep us in ignorance.

          My friends, only through a study of God’s word can we show ourselves approved unto Him (II Timothy 2:15). God, today, no longer will excuse ignorance of His word! (Acts 17:30) Our society doesn’t realize that some day vengeance will be meted out to them who know not God and that obey not the gospel of our Lord! (II Thess. 1:8)

          Remember, it is through ignorance that Satan takes advantage of us!                                                                                                                           

LEFT vs RIGHT by Earl Sutton

A moral difference between the left and right concerns the way that each group seeks to improve our society. Left-wing beliefs are liberal in that they believe that society is best served with an expanded role for government. They have the philosophy and believe in one for all and all for one, looking to government to support everyone, looking to government as your god.

People on the right believe that the best outcome for society is achieved when individual rights and civil liberties are paramount and government power is minimized. Most people on the right are conservatives and believe that the best way to improve society is through the moral improvement of the individual.

Those on the left believe that the way to a better society is always doing battle with society’s moral failings. The left concentrates its efforts on combating sexism, racism, intolerance, Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia, and many other evils they consider wrong. Christianity and the U.S. Constitution are so-called evils they are working to eliminate.

The consequences of these left and right views are that the left is preoccupied with politics as the vehicle for societal improvement, and the right is more interested in fixing society through moral improvement.

Those on the left want spending on social programs and strong regulations on business. Those on the right want less regulation on business and reduced government spending. Those on the left support universal healthcare, and those on the right oppose it and favor competition from private insurance companies. Those on the left want amnesty for undocumented immigrants, and the right oppose it and want stronger borders.

Those on the left favor abortion rights, and the right oppose it. Those on the left support gay marriage, and those on the right oppose it, because such laws conflict with religious beliefs and restrict freedom of religion. Those on the left favor gun control laws, and the right oppose it and support the Second Amendment.

Conservatives have no interest in fundamentally transforming the USA into a one world government controlled by the globalists. Conservatives are against transforming a society that generally believes in God and Christianity into an atheistic and materialistic society which is going in the wrong direction. Conservatives believe that we must work on the moral transformation of each citizen, thus character development should be at the top of our list.

How does the Bible describe those on the left and those on the right? The Bible describes the final judgment  in Matt. 25:31-46, “And before Christ shall be gathered all the nations: and He shall separate them one from another. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left” (Verses 32-33). The sheep on the right represent genuine believers in God and following His word. These believe that society is changed through moral improvements and character development. (This group represents about 38% of Americans.)

The goats on the left represent about 23% of Americans which are described as wicked and are always pushing a social revolution against God and Christianity. Very large portions on the left identify themselves as atheists or agnostic.

The bottom line is those on the left follow sin and evil; those on the right follow the moral high road and abide by the principles of God’s word. Those on the left have the Devil as their leader, and those on the right have Christ as their leader.

Who is going to win this battle? Rev. 20:1-6 shows the victory of Christ over Satan!                                                                                                         

 

GLOBALISTS vs GOD by Earl Sutton

GLOBALISTS  vs  GOD

 

Ahab, King of Israel like the globalists movement, was wicked with a wife, Jezebel like the deep state, was cruel and determined to destroy the religion of God. But Elijah was determined in a bold, decisive move, to demonstrate to the people of Israel the foolishness of following such a movement as a one world government of Baalism.

          Elijah arranged a great contest to take place on Mount Carmel, a ridge extending for about twelve miles along the side of the city of Haifa in the North of Palestine. This would be similar to our national elections with each side giving their platform goals.

          When Ahab, like Obama, saw Elijah the King said to him, “Is it thou troubler of Israel” (I Kings 18:17). Ahab, instead of recognizing his own sins and the sins of his party, sought to place the blame on Elijah. It has ever been true, some of the best and most worthy men in history have been charged with responsibility for conditions brought about by the sins of their accusers. The accusations made by the last administration about Russian interference have now been proven to be their own wicked plan to hide their sins and blame the new administration.

          Elijah answered, “I have not troubled Israel: but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of Jehovah, and have followed the Baalim.” The truth is the last administration and their new, proposed leader were pushing the one world government which would do away with our worship to God and religious freedoms in America.

          Elijah continued, “Now therefore send and gather to me all Israel unto Mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal, four hundred and fifty, prophets of Asherah, four hundred, that eat at Jezebel’s table.” The purpose in ordering this assembly was to demonstrate to the people the power of God. This would correspond to our up-coming election in November 2018 in which the people can choose to follow the god of Socialism and pursue the path to a one world government or choose to return to the principles of the Bible.

          Elijah said, “How long go ye limping between the two sides? If Jehovah be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.” He challenged them to decide one way or the other. Elijah directed their attention to the fact that he stood alone, as a prophet of God, whereas, Baal’s prophets were 450.

          Certainly, the globalists out -number the Christians in the world today at about the same ratio. In our society, the globalists are supported by our FBI, CIA, DOJ, radical left, biased mainstream media, big bankers, central bankers, Islam, LGBT, crooked judges, some state and local police departments, and Satan, himself. The question is, will they be able to outdo the Almighty in November, or will God put them in their place as He did in the last election?

           Elijah won that contest and gave God the glory! The effect was tremendous: “And when all the people saw it (fire of God consumed the burnt offering of Elijah), they fell on their faces and said, “Jehovah, He is God.” It was into such a situation that Elijah boldly came to turn the people back to the one true God.

          Our upcoming election will be for that same purpose, to restore Christian values in America. I believe that our president defied the pundits, biased MSM, corrupt politics, lies of radical left and won a stunning victory with God’s help.

         It is our prayer that God’s will be done always in America!

                                               

CAMPAIGN TO CONFUSE YOUNG PEOPLE by Earl Sutton

 

Disney has decided to create a live-action adaptation of the classic children’s book, A Wrinkle in Time, with the left-leaning socialist actor, Oprah Winfrey. The book focuses on the battle between good and evil. This film removes all Bible references and replaces them with language about being part of the universe and having it inside of us. (Oprah believes that we are our own god, and there is no right or wrong.) Without the Bible grounding of the deep themes in A Wrinkle in Time, the fantasy novel promotes a new-age, self-worship and no need for a higher being. (This will be the one world government’s one religion.)

          Also, Hollywood is releasing the movie, “Corpus Christi” in June. It is a disgusting film set to depict Jesus and His disciples as homosexuals. It’s a revolting mockery of our Lord! As Christians we need to stand up for what we believe in and protest this wicked plot and filth to mock Jesus Christ.

          Today, when our children watch television and movies, they are being told that boys can be girls, and girls can love each other in a romantic way. This plot by Hollywood and such sick people as Oprah Winfrey is to confuse and harm this generation of young people.

          There is no doubt that this generation is being bombarded with twisted and perverted versions of morality. For a long time, Disney has been promoting the LGBT agenda. Up until now, the Disney movies have had subtle references to homosexuality in their cartoons.

          Homosexuality and immorality are now being introduced to children in Disney movies. This includes “Beauty and the Beast.” Also, the Disney Channel cartoon is featuring same-sex kisses in the episode of “Star vs the Forces of Evil.”

          God takes seriously this business of teaching sin to our children! “But whoso shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it is profitable for him that a great millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be sunk in the depth of the sea” (Matt. 18:6). The little ones that believe in this passage is a reference to Christians and could also describe our children.

           Jesus is showing how wicked it is for someone like Oprah Winfrey and Hollywood to cause our children to sin and fall away from God. It is evil when they commit such sins, but is worse when they, on purpose, cause our children to be placed in the path of enticement to do wrong through beguiling allurements!

          For Oprah Winfrey and Hollywood to lead our children into sin, it would be better for them to be cast into the bottom of the sea with a great millstone around their necks. The great millstone was the one the donkey pulled. If this millstone was around their necks, and they were cast into the sea, it would take them to the bottom and certain death.

          However, the real punishment for causing our children to sin is going to be much worse! God does take seriously this business of teaching sin to our children. “Woe unto the world because of occasions of stumbling” (Matt. 18:7). The world is those who are opposed to god, like Winfrey and Hollywood. This verse is saying, woe to that person who opposes God for they will not escape the punishment of God. They will be cast into eternal fire (Matt. 18:8).

                                                         

THE GREAT MORAL DIVIDE by Earl Sutton

 

Hollywood actor, Robert De Niro, had the audacity to curse our president on stage, on air, at the 72nd annual Tony Awards. Those in the audience should have walked out on such a vulgar and blatant display of disrespect. The unbridled hate that so many in Holly wood have toward this president is a sign of the great moral divide in America. Truly, a battle is being waged for the direction and future of our nation. Truly, there is a battle between the good (Christianity) and evil (globalists).

          We are rapidly reaching a tipping point in the USA with irreparable schism between the left and right over the great moral divide. Those on the right in policy circles didn’t like as the left redefined marriage and then human sexuality. They bitterly went along with this charade of calling a man a woman. Such moral and intellectual bankruptcy is reflective of enveloping half of our country.

          This great moral divide reached a fever pitch a few weeks ago over the most basic principles of right and wrong with Hamas vs Jews in Israel. This great moral divide is seen by the left trying to keep our borders open so that criminal aliens like MS-13 and drug cartels can come in. The MS-13 violent street gang’s motto is kill, steal, rape and control; and radicals on the left say, “We stand with you.”

          A similar great moral divide gripped the country in the lead-up to the Civil War. Those on the left felt the political and economic benefits of slavery were so valuable that the institution and all of its evils had to be defended at all cost. Those on the right, including President Lincoln, saw very clearly a divide that could not be sustained.

          Our country cannot continue like this with one side shedding crocodile tears over waterboarding but unflinchingly champions the practice of dismembering babies limb from limb while their hearts are still beating! We cannot continue to have one side (left) that violently opposes capital punishment for murderers but embraces murder for babies. We cannot continue to have one side supporting illegal immigration to support their voter registration program. We cannot continue to have one side coddling criminals while ignoring law-abiding citizens. There is an irreconcilable difference in our country when one side is insistently merciful to those who are cruel (Muslims) and cruel to those deserving mercy (Christians.)

            Our country is divided on social issues and the role of government in our lives. The bottom line is we have reached the tipping point. As long as one side believes that a man is a woman, right is wrong, a border is a doorway, criminals are civil rights groups, abortion is sacred while interrogating terrorists is evil. The animosity between the other side gets worse with this great moral divide. We are living in a time when people are saying that there is no universal right and wrong, but that it varies with the circumstances.

          We are living in a time when people seem to be pleasure-mad, constantly seeking some form of entertainment rather than some worthwhile work. We are living in a time when drunkenness and excess are called gracious living, while cheating, deception and lying have come to be regarded as smart maneuvering.

          We are living in a time when moral and ethical values are blurred and confused. We are living in a time when the words of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah are especially appropriate concerning the great moral divide in our nation: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

          Some people in our topsy-turvy society cannot tell right from wrong. It reminds me of what takes place when the head of a chicken is cut off. Its body is in a state of complete confusion. It does not know what it is doing or where it is going. The world today is full of wicked people, like that chicken with its head off, who are in rebellion against God, who think that drunkenness and illicit sex are a mark of freedom. Their spiritual chaos is unimaginable.

          The answer to what is right or wrong and the solution to the great moral divide lies in the word of God  --  the Bible (Psalm 119).

                                           

 

FAR MORE THAN JUST A CAKE ISSUE by Earl Sutton

 

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The false media (controlled by the globalists) said the 7 – 2 decision was a narrow victory. At issue was Jack Phillips’ moral belief that God designed marriage to be between a man and woman.

         The LGBTQ advocates greatest fear is that this ruling will open the door to claims from those who engage in professional services, that their religious liberty would exempt them from public accommodation laws applicable to other businesses.

         The Trump Administration sided with Mr. Phillips in this case, and the Solicitor General argued for the defendant, who won this case. The bottom line is that this case is about far more than just cake. It is a battle between returning Christian values and free speech rights vs LGBTQ rights. In this case, the First Amendment rights were on trial along with the Bible view, not Jack Phillips. The LBGTQ movement is simply about trying to destroy Christianity in America.

         The California pro-LGBTQ Assembly Bill 2943 threatens free speech and freedom of religion for Christians. It used the state’s consumer fraud statue that could make it illegal to “distribute or sell books (such as the Bible) or direct someone to a Biblical source about homosexuality.”

          Many Christians have accepted the LGBTQ movement’s lie that they seek only Christian love and acceptance. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The facts show that the LGBTQ movement seeks to destroy Christianity by bullying everyone into silence and extinction. Some Christians want to remain neutral on political and cultural issues for business purposes, and leaders in the church fear making someone unhappy enough to leave the church. LGBTQs have a soul, and we want them to come to the saving blood of Jesus Christ. But don’t try to force Christians to accept this lifestyle as normal.

          How long are we going to sit around and let sin, with all of its consequences, run rampant, because leaders in the church don’t want to make anyone unhappy? When is the last time you heard anything from the pulpit about sins of homosexuality, pedophilia, pornography, evil intentions of globalists, Islam or political corruption?  It is high time that we awake out of our slumber, stiffen up our backbone, and fight against these evil practices which have destroyed the moral fiber of our nation.

          The time to protest the infringement of our religious freedom is now. We need to follow Mr. Phillips’ lead, because for too long our religious leaders have given a free pass to evil and evil doing.

          It should concern all Christians who allow themselves to be bullied into not speaking Biblical truths and using common sense to fight the immoral platform of the LGBTQ movement. This wicked Jezebel group is using every weapon in its arsenal to punish, humiliate, and destroy Christians, with the ultimate goal of wiping Christianity off the face of the earth.

          This Jezebel group is using these tactics in order to force their agenda down the throats of the masses as portraying themselves as the victims. They are aggressive and tyrannical in their movement which is steamrolling across our country, flattening anyone who disagrees with their redefinition of marriage. They have been allowed to hijack public education, placing their homosexual plan above reading, writing and arithmetic.

          The Bible says, “And be not conformed to this world” (Rom. 12:2). This word means to “fashion alike” or “follow the same pattern.” Let us stand up and speak up and forevermore refrain from being members of the silent church majority!                                 
 

STANDING UP FOR AMERICA by Earl Sutton

 

Standing up for America, I believe, means standing up for God who has greatly blessed our nation. God has blessed America far above other nations. Will God continue to bless America in her present condition and current immoral condition? It is possible that within just a few more years, the United States of America will cease to exist?

          God spoke 3,000 years ago, “If my people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chron. 7:14). This passage is teaching that when people have displeased God to the point that He finds it necessary to chastise them with calamity, there is a means of appeasing Him. The people must humbly accept His commandments. They must turn from their evil ways (homosexuality, lying, stealing, murder, adultery, transgenderism, worshipping false gods such as Mohammed and Mary, etc.). They must pray for forgiveness, and then He will hear their prayers and forgive them.

          This passage shows that national judgments could bring famine, pestilence and war. In order to avoid this calamity, national repentance, prayer, and reformation is required. God expects that His people, who dishonor his name by their iniquity, should honor it by accepting the punishment of their iniquity.

          For the last 30 years, there has been a breakdown in the home. In a divided home, many heartaches have come to fruition which include no parental guidance that we are now seeing in the mass school killings. This passage shows that people must humble themselves under God’s hand and pray for the removal of His judgment. They must seek His favor and turn from their wicked ways. National mercy is then promised that God will forgive their sin and then heal their land.

          This principle remains true today, because God rules in the affairs of both nations and men. Will America have to bow a knee before her enemies, before she learns to bow a knee to God in the 21st Century?  The depravity of man is on full exhibition in America today (homosexuality, transgenderism, pornography pedophilia  -- immorality of every kind). The true picture of America’s moral condition is paralleled only by Paul’s description of the Gentile world (Rom. 1:18-20).

          Today the Bible and Christianity is being scoffed at. Modernism and liberalism have invaded the Lord’s church and refer to faithful saints as traditionalists. They downgrade the Bible and brand scripture quoting in sermons as old-fashioned. They substitute a social gospel off the Internet for the gospel of Christ. We must not be deterred by the liberals who brand conservatives as five-steppers when we preach the plan of salvation found in the New Testament  -- hear, believe, repent, confess and be baptized to be saved. Neither when they scoff at the five items of worship  -  sing, pray, study, observe the Lord’s supper and giving.

          The bottom line is that the world cannot be saved through intellectual snobbery, hyper-intellectuals, but must return to the old paths! If America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great in the eyes of God. The hope of America lies in Christians standing up for God and restoring Christian values in our society which are being removed by social engineering.

          Don’t hesitate to cry out against that which the global elites are trying to destroy with a one world government, because the very foundation of which our nation rest is at stake! (Deut. 4:7) 

                                                         

DEEP STATE SUBVERSIONS by Earl Sutton

DEEP  STATE  SUBVERSION

 

The great Roman statesman, Cicero, told the Roman Senate, “A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within.” That warning is as applicable today, in our society, as it was 2,000 years ago. Cicero went on to say, “An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banner openly against the city. But the traitor within moves among those within the gates freely. The traitor appears as no traitor for he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the heart of all men.”

          Cicero called out the conspirators for precisely what they were: traitors, subversive, corrupters, and murderers. The conspiracy we face today in America is larger, more deadly, more sophisticated and more deadly engrained. Our deep state conspiracy goes back many decades and involves a self-perpetuating elite ruling class in the bowels of our government. Our government corruption of deceit and cover-up has been going on in America at least since the Kennedy assassination with both political parties involved.

          President Kennedy was killed in Dealey Plaza (Dallas, TX)  by a crossfire, meted out by shooters firing from multiple directions, from both the front and behind. He was killed by a conspiracy.

          Our government concealed and/or destroyed the most damaging evidence. The documents released by President Trump clearly show that the out-of-control shadow government did the dirty work. The CIA led the coup, because Kennedy said he was going to eliminate this department and close the Federal Reserve system  -- thus the motive.

          Another government corruption and deceit has been documented. A video from a camera near the Pentagon clearly shows a missile hitting it on September 11, 2001, instead of a plane. Experts fully agree that an airplane could not fly directly parallel with the ground into the Pentagon at such a high speed  -- it just doesn’t add up.

          Another government corruption and deceit has been compiled in a two-year study of the collapse of the World Trade Center’s buildings, which beyond a doubt, proves that it had to be a controlled demolition to bring it down. The 9/11 killing of innocent Americans by its own government should sound Cato’s warning, “In heaven’s name, wake up while there is still time and lend a hand to defend the republic.” His urgent appeal rings right down through the ages to our present day.

          America’s faith in government has fallen to an all-time low. Only 10% of its citizens say that they can trust leaders in Washington, D.C. to do what is right and honest. The deep state, controlled by globalists, will go to virtually any length to maintain the status quo of corruption by subverting the will of the American people. They are now working overtime to erode our Constitution and to destabilize our government for their own corrupt purposes of a one world government.

          The deep state completely control the mainstream media and push the Muslim, socialist, and LGBT agenda down the collective throats of Americans. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and give in to the sin of tolerance which accepts anything and everything that society is doing, regardless of what it is. It is high time that we awake, vote for term limits for politicians and fight against corrupt politicians and evil practices which are destroying our nation.

          These issues are not just political but are moral and biblical issues that adversely affect the morality of our nation. “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord” (II Chronicles 19:2).

                                                         

POWER WICKED VS POWER GOD by Earl Sutton

 

The same dysfunctional draft dodgers that spat on our troops in the 60’s and 70’s are today’s left-wing radicals that teaches and influences our children to carry on their dysfunctional agenda. Approximately 60% of our university professors in the USA are controlled by the left-wing, radical party. We have been dumbed down by our public education system and college universities controlled by radical leftists.

          We have been indoctrinated by the corporate-owned, mass media controlled by the elite globalists pushing a one world government. We have been socially engineered by Hollywood, pop culture music, and TV programming to accept trash as artistic entertainment.

           We have been drugged, brainwashed and robbed by Big Pharmaceutical and the American healthcare racket with the goal to keep us sick and on their unhealthy products. We have been tricked into thinking the USA is a democracy, not knowing it is a corporation  exercising control for corrupt and selfish purposes for its elite members of Congress.

           It is truly a government under oligarchy control. The Bible confirms this control, “The whole world is lying in the POWER (doo-nam-is, force) OF THE WICKED” (I John 5:19). Certainly, the whole world lieth in the evil one which means that all those who are opposed to God and work against Him are under the dominion of the Devil.

         How is our nation under the power of Satan? It means that Satan has brought corruption and deterioration to the world by his agents. Our society is literally deteriorating and will eventually be destroyed.

         It means that Satan has affected the governments and societies of the world. He has corrupted the hearts and minds, laws and rules of man by his agents. Therefore, Christians must respect and be loyal to God’s word and reject and stand against the evils of abortion, homosexuality, LGBT activism, ideology of Islam (which has the goal of destroying our religious freedom and Constitution). Christians must not love any organization or party more than they love God’s word.

           It means that Satan has injected and infected society with lust, evil, pride, and rebellion against God. The world today is full of sinful people -- people who are evil and full of lust and pride. The world today is also full of people who are in rebellion against God, such as LGBT, globalists, left-wing radicals, liberals, who are truly Satan’s agents.

          The word, “world,” (kos’-mos) means the present condition of human affairs. It is not the material universe in which we live, but the race of wicked men and Satan’s agents about us. These, because they have abandoned themselves to a life of sin, have as their goal to destroy all moral purity in the Bible.

          The children of God will not walk in darkness but in the light of God’s word. This is in sharp contrast to the walk of the children of the evil one with his agents who are of the world. They walk in darkness, and their general attitude is one of selfish pleasure with the end results of death and doom!

          By knowing that the world is in opposition to God, that it lies under the power of the wicked one, we know we must separate ourselves from the worldliness of the world and live for God. “If sinners (Devil’s agents) entice thee, consent thou not.” (Prov. 1:10)

                                                    

HOSTILITY TOWARD THE BOOK by Earl Sutton

 

California Governor Jerry Brown and their legislature have written a bill with language that will show hostility toward the sale of the Bible in that state. What will come next  --  ban Christian churches, then Christians, then ramp up the persecution of Christians? How can this be happening in America?

          This reminds me of old King Jehoiakim in Jeremiah 36:20-25 who took Jeremiah’s scroll and threw it into the fire, thereby, showing hostility toward the Book. The king had an opportunity to hear the word of God and conform his life to it; but instead of making restitution for past sins and adjusting his present life, he became greatly disturbed and offended by what he heard.

          We can almost see him as he sits in his winter home, every eye fixed upon him, and with a great silence among his lords and princes. The word of God is read, the king frowns, his cheeks burn, his foot comes down with thundering indignation, he grabs the penknife and the word of God is slashed to bits and thrown in the fire.

          God’s book, like His people, has been persecuted in every age. It has been tortured, pierced, and ridiculed, burned and banned; but it has quenched the fire of violence, escaped the edge of the sword, stopped the mouths of lions, and turned to fight the armies of the aliens.

          The dealings between God and this man portrays the dealings between God and a great mass of humanity now as in California’s plan to ban the sale of the Bible. Why take this action? It is because they want to practice sins of homosexuality, transgenderism, support the LGBT agenda and to completely destroy Christianity. The Bible condemns these activities. This proves that the world has always been disposed to mutilate and reject God’s will.

          But do their attitudes change the truth that they despise? The hostility that existed in that winter house long ago still exist today. The enemies of this Book have tried to marshal on their side chemist’s laboratory, astronomer’s telescope, geologist’s pry, and mineralogist’s hammer to run down this Book.

          This Book has been struck with many blows; the infidel has thrust at it with his sharp penknife; the modernist has beat upon it with his puny hammers of doubt and unbelief; religious counsels have sought to place bans upon its doctrine; and modernistic preachers have attempted to mutilate it, but to their own destruction. No other book has passed through such hostility, yet this book is today’s foremost piece of literature.

          Any fool could do what this king and Gov. Brown did; it doesn’t take a smart man to act like this. The king’s act showed his impatience with Jeremiah. It expressed an obstinate determination never to comply with God’s word given him.  It showed that he foolishly hoped to defeat the message given him. He acted as if he thought God would forget what the message was once he destroyed it. But he could not defeat the Almighty! Gov. Jerry Brown cannot defeat the Almighty with his ban of the sale of the Bible.

          Gov. Brown is like the drunken captain who cut to pieces the chart that told him of the rocks in the vessel’s course. He may try to arrest the sailors on the vessel who called attention to his stupid action, but this will not avert the crash that will surely come unless the helm of the ship is turned around.

          The king’s rejection did not destroy the message, because another roll was taken and all the words of the book which the king had burned were written again (Jer. 36:32). No man, including Jerry Brown, is done with the word of God when he rejects and tries to ban it. Unbelief will never make the word die (I Peter 1:25). Present day Jehoiakim and the LGBT will be on safer ground if they could recognize this.                                      

DEVOURING GOD'S PEOPLE by Earl Sutton

 

From the beginning of time, a hostile wind has been blowing. It began in the tranquil paradise of Eden when Satan launched his initial assault and gained a temporal victory over Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:1fff). Since that tragic day, this hostile wind has continued to rage with the globalists, working with Satan, to overthrow the faith of Christians.

To accomplish this damnable work, Satan has prowled the earth and found a group (globalists) to help him devour God’s people (I Peter 5:8). The Greek word for devour is Kapapiein which means to gulp down, swallow. The word, devour, found in this passage is the very same word used to describe the way the Red Sea swallowed up the army of the Egyptians when they were pursuing the fleeing Hebrews in the great exodus led by Moses (Heb. 11:29). This descriptive word paints a vivid picture of Satan’s ultimate goal to completely do away with and drown the faith of Christians.

Satan hates true Christianity, but allows other religious groups a pass. By using Islam, the globalists plan to destroy true Christianity. After that goal is accomplished, the globalists plan to destroy Islam.

Since that tragic day when Satan gained a temporal victory over Adam and Eve, a great struggle has been waged with the people of God (Christians). We are at war with the forces of evil (Satan, globalists, deep state) concerning the moral fabric of our society. America is now reeling as Satan, using his minions, works to destroy the moral fabric of our society.

We are facing the evils of abortion, homosexuality, LGBT activism, ideology of Islam, FBI and CIA (deep state) orchestrating murder at schools and concerts to promote gun control and overreach of government in religion and the home. These issues are a clear disregard for God’s absolute standard of morality. We have, “sown to the wind,” and are now reaping the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7).

Satan’s outrageously wicked work has led to a world filled with violence. In Genesis 6:11-13, the Bible describes the world of Noah’s day and time filled with violence. Twice in that brief text, we read how that man became corrupt, and the earth was filled with violence. Our eyes would have to be deliberately blinded to deny that Satan’s work to destroy the moral fabric of our society has led to a very violent world in which we live today. It should not be surprising to us that Satan’s attacks have been upon God and God-ordained morality as found in the Bible.

 Satan’s devilish work to destroy the moral fabric of our society has centered in directing people to other gods. The god of materialism, the god of pleasure, and the god of indifference are now honored above the true and living God. Israel of old, like the United States today, was not content to worship and serve the one God, but chose new gods, then there was war at her gates.

Our society is one in which people can work, live, prosper, and serve God; but if we chose new gods, that path will lead to sure and certain ruin. Satan’s evil work to destroy the moral fabric of our society has centered in attacking the idea of the fear of God. The wicked man does not fear God (Psalm 36:1). 

The wickedness and anti-American traits of the globalists have come about, because they have no respect for God. The globalists ruling elite hate that which is good and have a defiant attitude toward God. Satan’s constant work to destroy the moral fabric of our society has centered in destroying us with violent behavior.

Nothing could help the U.S. more than a good dose of Biblical morality. It is not gun control or drug control that we need today but character control. Until we, as a nation, come to recognize God, we will continue to reap the whirlwind of moral destruction.

                                                         

HOSTILE WIND BLOWING by Earl Sutton

 

A very hostile wind is clearly blowing against Christians by those wanting to bring in a one world government, MSM, LGBT, Islam and many liberal judges throughout our country. This religious hostility is the red light on the dashboard that tells us we have a major problem. The loss of religious freedom will come next if we remain silent any longer.

          What started out with Christian bakers, florists, and photographers has now blossomed into something much larger. It appears, in most media outlets, including our MSM which is owned by global elitists and even in some textbooks, that Christianity has a large bull’s-eye on it and is painted in a negative light.

          The global elitists are using Saul Alinsky’s plan to create a social state and bring in their one world government. The USA is the big domino which must fall before the one world government can be put into place. They must remove our belief in God and take it out of government, schools, and society. This also includes removing the ability to defend ourselves from the new government, so a police state can be set up.

          To say that Christians and Christianity are under a brutal attack in certain areas of the world is an understatement. In different parts of the Middle East, there is a genocidal cleansing of Christians being carried out. Here in the USA, Christians and Christianity is being mocked, belittled, smeared, and attacked on a daily basis. Hostility to religion in America is rising like floodwaters. This flood is engulfing ordinary citizens who simply try to live normal lives according to their faith.

          The “Survey of Hostility to Religion in America” is published by First Liberty Institute, which is a large, non-profit legal organization that strives to protect religious liberty. It documents more than 1,200 legal cases involving persons who believe they have been discriminated against in 2017 because of their religious beliefs.

          Religious liberty is our first freedom in the Bill of Rights. Once we lose it, then we lose our political liberty and all others. Those at the altar of political correctness, driven by global elitists, have deemed that Christianity should no longer be respected.  The MSM assails Christianity on a daily basis in order to try to weaken it and remove it.

                For example, The New Yorker magazine just described the opening of a few Chick-fil-A restaurants, owned by Christians in New York City, as “pervasive Christian traditionalism.” The California Senate (Bill 2943) would ban all transactions involved in stating Christian beliefs about homosexual behavior. This could open the door to banning the Bible and other Christian literature. Some communities in California are already banning Bible studies in peoples’ homes.

          In colleges across our nation, they now teach about the evils of “Christian privilege.” America’s Christian collages are under constant assault from so-called social justice warriors trying to strip their accreditation away and put them out of business. A high school football coach is fired for giving a Bible to a student who requested it. A Marine is court-martialed for not removing a Bible verse from her computer. Starbuck’s CEO says if you support traditional marriage, don’t buy their coffee. In Florida, a straight “A” student is failed for keeping her faith in the existence of God.

          How should Christians respond to a hostile society? We must stand up and be firm in our Biblical convictions! We must not compromise them. We must defend the truth of God’s word and stand up against the evils in our society. The time to protest the infringement of our religious freedom is now, because for too long, our religious leaders have given a free pass to evil and evil doing.
          The prophet told Judah, “Stand ye in the ways, ask for the old paths” (Jer. 6:16). Sadly, their response was often our response today, “We will not.” Christians must awaken to the global crisis which has the goal of destroying our religious freedom.                                

WHAT HAS AMERICA BECOME? by Earl Sutton

 

Mr. Ken Huber wrote an article about, “What has America Become?” He had the courage to say what many of the rest of us are thinking. He asked, “Has America become the land of special interest and the home of the double standard?”

          If we lie to Congress, it is a felony. If Congress lies to us, it’s just politics. If we dislike a Black person, we are racist. If a Black person dislikes whites, it is their First Amendment right. In public schools, you can teach that homosexuality is okay. If you use the word, “God,” it is not okay. You can kill an unborn child, but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer. You can have pornography on TV and the internet, but  you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas.

          We take money from those who work hard for it, and give it to those who don’t want to work. We only support the Constitution when it supports our political ideology. We still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct. Parenting has been replaced with video games.

          How do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes and tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their re-election campaign.

          What has happened to our country? America has become a nation of double standards, because our leaders apply a set of principles to each group differently. Our leaders use a code of morals and apply them to whites, straights, conservatives, and males more severely than other groups. We clearly see that the rule of law is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups.

          A double standard is a code or policy that favors one group or person over another. Certainly, double standards are unfair. The Bible says, “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8). A double-minded person cannot make up his/her mind and becomes unstable, because they cannot trust completely in God. A double-minded person is the one who will believe whoever has talked to him last. He will say one thing at one time and take a completely opposite position at a later time. Logic and truth are twisted and distorted to fit the occasion.  You cannot depend upon such a person.

If you lean upon a double-minded person for advice or support, you will find  you have placed your weight upon the broken reed which will collapse and injure you.

          When a leader in church becomes double-tongued (I Tim. 3:8), he is insincere and deceitful. When this leader becomes double-tongued, he does tell one person one thing and another person the opposite thing. When our leaders in Congress become double-tongued; their word is untrustworthy, and it is time to vote them out of office. We must set our own term limits, even if Congress refuses to do so.  It is, therefore, necessary that Christians engage in removing the crooked politicians who are double-tongued and speak out of both sides of their mouths. This grave fault is inflicting a deadly wound on our country and destroying the very foundation on which our society and nation should rest  -- Truthfulness!

          The prophet Jehu’s message applies to us today and emphasizes the fact that if we support wrong doing, God will not support us. “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord” (II Chronicles 19:2).

                                               

IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES by Earl Sutton

 

The term, irreconcilable differences, refers to an inability for two parties to resolve their differences in order to live together. This is what happened in the Old Testament with God’s people when Solomon died (I Kings 12).

                Solomon had exacted slave labor from the people in erecting great public buildings, and the people were determined to obtain relief from this servitude before declaring allegiance to Rehoboam, the new king. A man by the name of Jeroboam sympathized with the people and became their spokesman in the effort to obtain relief from the unjust demands of government.

                The people met Rehoboam at Shechem and asked for a lessening of taxes and forced labor. Rehoboam met with his advisors, and the old men urged moderation. However, the young men urged the new king to keep people in servitude and continue to oppress them. Rehoboam followed the advice of the young men and answered the people roughly in an attitude of arrogant disregard for any interests except his own.

                The kingdom divided, with ten tribes showing allegiance to Jeroboam (who they made king over the Northern Kingdom), and two tribes, Judah and Benjamin, showed allegiance to Rehoboam. They became the Southern Kingdom and continued to follow God’s laws. The ten tribes were without any constitutional rights in this matter, and their action was wrong!

                What were the steps that led to the irreconcilable differences between the ten tribes and the two tribes? Jeroboam, who was influenced by political expediency, conceived a plan of establishing a form of worship in his own territory to keep the people from going to Judaea to worship. The Law of Moses required every male Israelite to go to Jerusalem three times a year on the occasion of great feasts to worship (Deut. 12:11-14).

                To keep them away from Jerusalem, he made two calves of gold and said, “It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold they gods, O Israel” (I Kings 12:28). Jeroboam knew if the twelve tribes met back together in Jerusalem, they would work out their differences; and he would lose his kingdom.

                The people submitted thereto and were guilty of great sin (v. 30). The steps that led to irreconcilable differences were (a) idolatry, (b) disobedience, (c) division, (d) pride, and (e) ambition which would eventually bring ruin to the Northern Kingdom.

                What are the steps that have led to the irreconcilable differences between the left and right groups in our society? There is simply no common ground between these groups; and as a nation, we are hopelessly divided. We, as a nation, have polarized and separated ourselves from each other. The United States was founded on the principles of following our Constitution, Judeo-Christian values and a limited Federal government.

                The left stands completely opposite to these principles upon which our nation was founded. This group boos at the very mention of the word, “God,” and openly joke about killing anyone who will not turn in their weapons. This group is getting bolder with violence and have no interest in rational compromise. If  you believe in God and limited government, they hate you with a passion.

                The right, like the two tribes, want to follow the rule of law and the Constitution and continue serving God. This group believes in increased school safety, Federal enforcement of illegal immigration, increased border security and restoring Christian values in our society.

                What is keeping the right and left from working out their differences?  The same things as Israel: (a) idolatry, (b) disobedience, (c) division, (d) pride and (e) ambition.  This demonstrates that one sin usually leads to another when we leave God out of society and our lives.                                                                                                  

                               

WICKED MEN DO NOT FEAR GOD by Earl Sutton

 

New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Jerome Corsi, reveals in his latest book, Killing the Deep State, the secret plan of the globalists ruling elite to destroy, not only President Trump, but everything that America stands for. They are secretly operating behind the curtain of “National Security” and pull the strings. In fact, no government agency, department, or official inside Washington is immune from the powerful grip of the deep state.

                The reason so many people misunderstand so many issues going on in our society, is not because that are complex, but they simply do not want a factual explanation that leaves them emotionally disturbed.

Dr. Corsi offers the “smoking gun” proof that the FBI has now taken the lead to stop the president once and for all. He reveals evidence that Barack Obama and his faithful lieutenants are the ones orchestrating the deep state by relying on the ones who are still in the government. Dr. Corsi gives irrefutable evidence the FBI, CIA and DOJ are supporting the globalist movement to bring in a one world government.

In past years, during our founding era, that was a time when preachers did not fear to preach against politics, resist tyranny, and help found their government on Bible principles. That same zeal is needed today.

Why should elders, who are the leaders in the Lord’s church, speak out against this corrupt deep state? The reason is very simple; the greatest issue facing the Lord’s church and Christianity is the push by these ruling elite globalists to establish a one world government which would abolish our religious freedom in America!

Some feel that church leaders should never talk about relevant issues and controversial topics, especially those they consider to be political issues. They completely forget, that in today’s society, religious issues have been made political issues by our government sticking its nose into religious matters and declaring war on the home, family and church. Many religious groups and Christian colleges have accepted so much government funding that they dare not speak about these issues. Others fear the loss of their tax-exempt status. Others do not want to deal with intimidation and name-calling that comes with standing up.

The church and society are in a battle for our very survival, because if the globalists win, we loose our Constitution and all of our freedoms, include the right to worship as we please. The Bible says, “The wicked man does not fear God” (Psalms 36:1). The wickedness and anti- American traits of the globalists came about, because they have no respect for God. Sin speaks to their hearts and persuades them that lust, pride, and power promise them more than the restrictions of truth and honesty, which God has defined. The wicked man is arrogant. “For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful” (Psalms 36:2).

                The Devil uses man’s appetite for pride to deceive him. The Devil deceived Eve in this manner. He suggested that if she would eat from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, she would be as gods. Adam, then knowingly partook, and they were firmly convinced that God need never know of their defiance. When men, like the globalists, center their affections upon themselves, America will experience sin and death.

                The wicked man is a deceiver. “The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good” (Psalms 36:3). The ruling elite turn from the fountain of truth and drink from the poison of Satan. Their humanistic philosophy is opposite to the Bible, and they push a value system that is radically different from Christian values.

                The wicked man constantly thinks about the next wicked thing he can do. “He deviseth mischief upon his bed: he setteth himself in a way that is not good: he abhorreth not evil” (Psalms 36:4).  The globalist ruling elites hate that which is good and have a defiant attitude toward God. It is time for the church to stand up for the truth and help take our country back!                              

 

BIBLE TRANSLATIONS by Earl Sutton

 

I had the privilege to hear Dr. Rodney Cloud, who is a scholar in Greek and Hebrew, speak on the subject of “Bible Translations” at the Woodbury Church of Christ last Sunday afternoon. Dr. Cloud was my Greek and Bible professor at Lipscomb in the early ‘70s.

          The issue of modern versions has become a controversial theme on the religious scene today. Dr. Cloud emphasized that the version that has accuracy (restore precisely the original words), clarity (easily understood) and dignity (reserve seriousness of message) is the one to look for and use in our Bible study.

          There are certainly extremes at both ends of this subject. Some view with suspicion anyone who uses any Bible translation other than the King James Version. Others, with an equal lack of discernment, exhibit little interest in textual accuracy. One truth that I learned from Dr. Cloud’s presentation is that translations that paraphrase are to be considered commentaries.

          Thus, the question: How do I decide which version of the Bible to use? If you ask this question of 25 different preachers in the church today, you might get about 25 different answers. The reason is that there is no clear-cut answer in the Bible. And that means the answer becomes a matter of human judgment. And human judgment, even if based on scriptural principles, will vary greatly from one Christian to another.

          I prefer the King James Version (1611) which, in spite of some errors in translation and bias in its scholarship, is still one of the best versions ever produced. The American Standard Version (1901) is one of the most accurate versions in English that is on the market today. Also, the New American Standard and the New King James have been produced by committees of scholars and are reliable versions.

          As to the New International Version (NIV), it is by far the most popular version today, based on sales. In my study of the NIV, there are some obvious mistakes. It mistranslates Psalms 51:5 to teach the false theory of total depravity. It changes “flesh” in Romans 8 to “sinful nature” teaching the false theory of original sin. It denies the deity of Christ by removing “begotten” from every text referring to Jesus Christ, including John 3:16. The NIV falsely teaches that sinners are “included in Christ” at the point of hearing in Ephesians 1:13. It further tampers with the plan of salvation in Romans 10:10 teaching that justification is reached at the point of faith.

          Many of the errors in the NIV goes back to Dr. Cloud’s point of accuracy. Those who served on the translating committee were Oral Roberts, Rex Humbard, and the Nazarene Church.

          The point of accuracy could apply to those who do not have scruples and promote virtually anything that sails under the name of “Bible” including such ridiculous versions as Clarence Jordan’s Cotton Patch Version.

Despite what you may have heard, there is no one version that is the only correct one. All of the early English versions of the Bible were produced well over 1,000 years after the original writing by the prophets and apostles. To declare one version better than another is to make subjective judgment. God doesn’t tell us.

Many preachers and members are no longer carrying hard-copy Bibles; instead they have downloaded e-bibles to their phones. Is this right or wrong? The word of God is not a book or scroll, letter or phone! The word of God is the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The bottom line is whoever is teaching or preaching,  you judge the message and man by the version of Bible that has accuracy, clarity and dignity and not by our customs of how things used to be done.

                                                                           

PERVASIVE DEEP STATE GOVERNMENT by Earl Sutton

 

Our pervasive deep state government, controlled by the globalist elites, is in a nose dive and spending binge unlike anything we have ever known. The do-nothing Congress gave itself a hefty spending package of $12.6 million and added $1.3 trillion to our national debt. This is pure waste and overspending for a nation that is basically bankrupted.

            Their actions clearly show that both parties don’t care about the American taxpayer. The Bible says, “The wicked borrows and pays not again” (Psalm 37:21). Where is all this indebtedness leading itself to? “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverb 22:7).

            The pervasive corruption of the deep state is in a nose dive with our eroded judicial system. Our law enforcement should be a force when it comes to holding the globalist elites accountable. No action has been taken to hold the past administration of crooks accountable and bring them to the bar of Lady Justice.

            It seems like our Attorney General, who is the leader of the U.S. Department of Justice, has become compromised to his very core. The DOJ is staffed with hold-overs of Obama-Clinton loyalists, and its sister agency FBI, have no interest in holding the globalist elite to the legal standards that apply to the rest of us. The American justice system is in a state of moral collapse.

            This corruption has come about in the Federal judiciary by being comprised by partisan hacks being nominated by presidents associated with the globalist movement. These appointments are the worst examples of intellectual corruption in our legal system. These appointments were gained as a result of political patronage and large contributions from special interest groups.

            About 90% of our current serving Federal judges were appointees of Clinton and Obama. It is no great wonder that they have illegally blocked nearly every one of the President’s initiatives.

            The bottom line is that criminals are going free, and there is absolutely no respect for the truth. Without truth, there can be no justice. In fact, our system now is a carefully crafted maze, constructed of elaborate and impenetrable barriers to the truth. It is difficult to fathom how anyone could be so blind as to be unable to see that America has flung truth and justice to the wind in deference to criminals.

            To some this article will sound political, to others it will be found practical. It deals, not with the politics of a certain party, but with the vision of our Founding Fathers who pledged when signing the Declaration of Independence that the new republic was to be a nation of laws and not men.

            This article deals with the battle for moral purity which is at the very heart of the pervasive corrupt deep state part of the government controlled by globalist elite and political corruption going on in Washington, D.C.  The globalist’s powerful grip on our government can only be broken by shining the light of truth upon what they are doing.

            It is, therefore, necessary that Christians engage in war against these evil forces and help bring in “term limits” to control these crooks. The deep state is destroying the very foundation on which our society and nation rests.

            “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverb 14:34).

                                                                                   

 

 

WHO IS BEHIND SCHOOL WALKOUTS? WHY? by Earl Sutton

 

Nearly 200,000 students and faculty participated in a National School Walkout on March 14, 2018. Those participating were encouraged to wear orange, the color used by many who support gun control. Another nationwide school walkout is scheduled for April 20, which is the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.

          The national student walkout is a protest of our leaders failure to pass laws that protect them from gun violence. The walkout was a call to Congress to pass legislation to keep them safe from gun violence at school. This march on March 14 was led by Linda Sarsour, who is a Muslim activist who hates America and promotes Sharia Law in America. She has called for jihad against our president and supports the Muslim Brotherhood front groups with known ties to Hamas. Some of the radical leftists who are behind the anti-gun national school walkout are Angela Davis, Harry Belafonte and Louis Farrakhan.

          Can 200,000 children in high school afford the transportation, lodging, meals and any other expenses on their own for trips to Washington, DC? The left-leaning socialist actors, George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Speilberg have donated $500,000 for the cause. Who is leading the charge for this march  --  the same individuals that have waged war against our elected president.

          The battle for moral purity is at the very heart of the political corruption going on in Washington, DC. The globalists believe that they are above the law and will go to virtually any length to maintain control of the U.S. government. George Soros is the front man for the global elitists who are trying to overthrow our elected president by funneling money into hate groups to destroy our government.

          It is the globalists who are pushing the gun control advocates (like Linda Sarsour) with the goal of complete gun confiscation in the USA in order to bring in their one world government. The gun control advocates, controlled by globalists, see each school tragedy as another opportunity to push for outlawing guns.

          Isn’t it time to ask who is funding these killings in our schools? Isn’t it time we determine the real cause of the problem of so much violence in our schools? It’s about gun confiscation. It’s about the globalists orchestrating situations to kill our children in order to promote control of guns and bring in their one world government.

          It’s about a generation raised to believe that truth and honesty are relative, there is no right or wrong, no consequences for bad behavior, no personal responsibility and being raised on gore and violence.  I firmly believe that as long as we teach our children that it’s okay to kill babies in the womb, we’ll never convince them it’s wrong to kill in the classroom.

          The Bible says, “Because sentence against an evil work (globalists) is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil” (Eccl. 8:11). The truth of this verse can be seen in the Muslim activists who are working with the globalists to overthrow our government with gun confiscation to remove gun resistance in order to bring in their one world government.

          These evil people are now using school tragedies and young people as their opportunity to achieve their goal. The rule of law and rule of God must be reinstated in America before it is too late!

          We ask the Lord, if it be His will, to help save this country from those who seek to destroy it.

                                                    

 

DID BILLY GRAHAM GO TO HEAVEN? by Earl Sutton

 

Conservative writer, George Will, said that Mr. Graham was neither a prophet nor a theologian in his recent article in National Review. He said that a prophet (God’s spokesperson) would take an adversarial stance against evil in their time, but Mr. Graham would not. Will’s most effective criticism was that Mr. Graham’s call to Christ, where his audience was exhorted to make a decision for Christ, was nothing more than an exercise in cheap grace (didn’t go all the way). Mr. Graham only preached faith and repentance. George Will made the point that it was a danger to put a human being upon a pedestal while ignoring the fact that he had clay feet.

                Batsell Barrett Baxter, Chairman of Lipscomb’s Bible Department, told his preaching students in 1964 that Mr. Graham was like a traffic cop who was leading people across the intersection and stops in the middle of the road, leaving them stranded as he runs away. (Mr. Graham did not go all the way with the plan of salvation.)

                There is no doubt that Mr. Graham had a positive effect on millions of people giving comfort and improving many, but did he bring them to salvation? Mr. Will’s main point of criticism was that Mr. Graham was not a true Christian preacher in his message, because he did not preach the full counsel of God. If that be true, did Mr. Graham go to heaven when he died?

                The Bible tells us very plainly that we need to get our names in the Book of Life in order to go to heaven (Rev. 20:15). After a brief and interesting ministry, the 70 returned with great joy and a glowing report (Luke 10:17-20). Jesus fully understood that their power to work miracles in His name had brought them much happiness, but He wanted them to know that they had a greater reason for joy than the ability to cast out demons. Jesus said, “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you: but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20). This language of Jesus clearly establishes the fact that the names of those who belong to God are recorded in heaven. Paul wrote of certain ones, “Whose names are in the Book of Life (Phil. 4:3). The Hebrew writer spoke of those whose names are “written in heaven” (Heb. 12:23).

                The real issue is how do we get our names in the Book of Life? The Bible says it is not by morality alone; because Cornelius was a devout person, God-fearing, a good influence, prayerful, steadfast, and prayed to God always; but he was in a lost condition and unsaved! (Acts 10:1-2)

                The Bible says that neither is sincerity alone sufficient in getting our names written in heaven. Saul of Tarsus killed Christians but felt that he was doing right and later said, “I verily thought within myself that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus” (Acts 26:9). In the religious realm, there are many who have made the same mistakes and have considered themselves citizens of God’s kingdom but have never truly obeyed all of God’s commandments. We know that only those who obey all of the Lord’s commands will enter into heaven (Matt. 7:21; John 14:15; Luke 6:46). The Bible is very clear on this issue of obedience (Webster: obedience is compliance with a command.) “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all that obey him” (Heb. 5:9).

          What is necessary for one to do in order to have his/her name recorded above? The Bible teaches that we cannot get our names written in heaven by faith only. The whole argument in James 2:14-26 is emphasizing that saving faith is an obedient faith. King Agrippa believed but died unprepared, because he didn’t put his faith into action and obey all commandments of the Lord (Acts 26:27).

          The Bible teaches that we cannot get our names written in heaven by grace only. We are saved by grace (on God’s part) and faith  (on man’s part) (Eph. 2:8-9). We must appropriate the blessings of salvation offered through grace. Titus 2:11-12, tells us what grace will do.

          The Bible teaches we cannot get our names written in heaven by prayer only or by a direct operation of the Holy Spirit. It can be written there as you, by faith and obedience, follow all of God’s commandments. If Mr. Graham followed God’s plan of salvation: Hear (Rom. 10:17), Believe (Mark 16:16), Repent (Acts 2:38), Confess (Rom. 10:10), Be Baptized (Acts 2:38) and remain faithful (Rev. 2:10), he died in hope of reaching  heaven by having his name written in the Book of Life. If not, he died in disobedience (I Thess. 5:21).                                                     

 

 

RED PILLED VS BLUE PILLED by Earl Sutton

 

The concept of the red and the blue pills originated from the 1999 science fiction film, “The Matrix,” wherein the main protagonist, Neo, played by Keanu Reeves is offered either the blue-colored pill or a red pill. In the background of the movie, humanity had at some point in the past lost a robot war, and individual humans were now used as bioelectric energy sources to power the robot’s world.

          To pacify the humans, they are kept sedated inside a virtual reality simulation known as “the matrix,” inside of which they are led to believe they are living in the real world. Taking the red pill would allow Neo to wake up and re-enter the actual real world in which only a handful of humans were detached from the matrix. This small group was fighting a rebellion against the computers. Taking the blue pill, on the other hand, would return Neo to his blissful, sedated life as a virtual-reality addled battery.

          This theme of the red pill vs the blue pill is a very good approximation of what we see in the church and in society today. Our society, as a whole, is in a sort of dream state on blue pills, where we are fed a false reality by the mainstream media. Our only concerns are sports, entertainment and having a good time, while leaving God out of our lives.

          Our being in this blissful and sedated life only feeds the globalists who are pushing for a one world government. In fact, the blue pill is just a bit of gelatin and has no function. So many people in society have never pondered the real issues of life. Where did we come from? Why are we here on earth? Where are we going when this life is over? If Neo had taken the blue pill, he would have merely continued as if nothing had happened. He would have been like so many in society today who are unconcerned about issues such as same-sex marriage, transgenderism, Islam, globalism, abortion, Christianity and our freedoms.

          In the Lord’s church, those taking the blue pill are those with no sense of urgency to change the environment but simply let the circumstances force their decision making. Those taking the blue pill have apathy concerning the Lord’s work by not letting their collective values be heard in the community, in the voting booth, and in public forums by confronting sin.

          Those taking the blue pill will not standup and fight against the unbiblical practices going on in the church, because of their blissful, sedated lives. They prefer to let sin run rampant with all of its negative consequences. Blue-pilled people are too busy with getting ahead financially, with sports, concerts, travels, etc. and feel no sense of urgency to turn those issues around. They are merely continuing to live as if nothing has changed in society. They simply float along without ever really thinking or questioning the reality of what they are being fed by the globalist mainstream media.

          In essence, the red-pilled person is simply being able to think for one’s self, to recognize, and be able to reject the false narrative that we are fed by the liberal-dominated information sources around us. To be red-pilled means to recognize falsehood when one sees it, both in the church and society. In summation, being red-pilled simply means this, being willing to speak the truth even when world systems (globalists) are against you, and being willing to wake up to reality, rather than continue in a blissful daze. Red-pilled people see the big picture of what is going on in the world today. Red-pilled people know who is behind world events.
