God’s Standards

A storm is brewing over America. One that demands destruction, idolatry, and death. The best way for us to gain abundance, righteousness, and life, is to follow God’s standards…

And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD. Zechariah 8:17 KJV

But things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and of these make a man ‘unclean.’ For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man ‘unclean.’ Matthew 15:18-20 NIV

There is righteous anger, yes, but what I see happening is a far cry from righteousness. Americans need to get their hearts in check. We should all agree that racism is wrong, that includes the hatred for ALL races. However, the wretched sin of police brutality doesn’t give permission for MORE sin.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10 NIV

When you loot, riot, beat up and kill others, you are not doing the work of Christ, but of the devil. You are stealing, you are destroying, you are killing. There is no life in that.

Choose life, choose Christ to lead you in your outcry for justice, and it will be blessed. Everything else only hurts your cause.

The destruction, the theft, the violence, the hate, it’s all wicked.

Enough already. ENOUGH!

REPENT!

Repent for your own souls, before its too late.

O righteous God, who searches the minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure. Psalm 7:9 NIV

God isn’t just watching your actions, but your hearts and minds.

Renounce murder, and theft, and slander and all destruction from your minds and hearts!

Please, choose life. Choose life to the fullest!

Then there are the worshipers of political correctness, you lukewarm, weak Christians, who bow to man. My heart breaks for you, most of whom, I’m willing to bet aren’t even sincere in your display of human worship. You literally take a knee, and some of you are even making your children take a knee, when you know the Bible! You know our God is a jealous God.

Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; (for the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from the face of the earth. Deuteronomy 5:14-15 KJV

When you bow to another man, or the cause, or the trends of man, especially for financial or political gain, you are committing idolatry! And I don’t care how trendy doing so is, what’s trending on the media won’t save your soul!

I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven images, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Deuteronomy 5:6-10 KJV

I don’t care how many world leaders or celebrities kneel to this trend, Christians never should! My heart breaks every time I see someone bow to another human, because I know it’s their eternity they’re risking. Stop risking an eternity in hell!

If you have bowed to man, if you have made your children bow to man, get on your knees to GOD and REPENT!

No one should disagree with the outcry for racism to cease; racism is evil. We are all God’s creation and should respect each other as such. But now if someone says that all lives matter, the outrage mob demands an apology. Most cave to it, and appease the frenzied crowd with an insincere apology, by betraying their hearts and minds for what they know is right. Because it is true, ALL lives matter. That includes the lives of cops. Most cops put their life on the line to protect the rest of us. I’ve met many, and they come in all colors. The majority of cops are selfless, hardworking, devoted contributors to their communities.

The only way to get rid of racism is to appreciate that our God is a creative God, and has too many colors to stick with just one. We are ALL fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) and instead of focusing on the external design, which we cannot help–such as the skin pigmentation we were born with–we should all carefully examine our hearts and minds.

We were all created by God as individuals, with value and purpose. No one should apologize for the color God made them, and no one should bow to something God made. We should only bow to God and God alone.

All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor. Esther 3:2 NIV

If you think this action is not a big deal, you are mistaken. We must be on fire for the Lord. I cannot stress it enough; we should only bow to Him.

So because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16

No one on earth will stand beside you when you meet God. All the opinions and trends of man, won’t advocate for you. Stop allowing them to rule over you now.

The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that. Proverbs 29:25 MSG

Don’t let yourself be tempted to put your soul on the line, by bowing to political correctness, and the approval of humans. It’s not worth it. Turn off the T.V. log out of social media, whatever you have to do to turn away from this temptation, do it!

If sinners entice you, do not give in to them. Proverbs 1:10 NIV

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 KJV

We must always be on guard against any thought and feeling that could lead us into sin.

Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away. Acts 3:19 NLT

Only God can save your soul. Bow to Him, and Him alone.

There is hope for the future if we learn to love each other, no matter what we look like, or the color of our skin.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud, or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and keeps no record of being wronged. 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 NLT

I love my God, and I love my country.

I pray every American will feel the same.

Recently, memorials to our soldiers were vandalized, some even destroyed. What really struck my heart is how much it dishonored all the people of color, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our flag. How many of their names were desecrated in the D.C. riots?

Americans, stop the hate, stop the destruction, stop the idolatry, and seek Christ. Choose life, and life to the fullest. If we all choose God’s standards in our lives, everything in our country will improve.

I am a Christian, and know that God can restore anything and anyone. I am also a mom and married to the love of my life, who happens to be a solider. I’m a wordsmith, so writing is my passion. In no time or place should words ever be silenced. I love my country, and am thankful for my freedoms. I believe that socialism is evil, political correctness makes us weak, and dogs are awesome.
