And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Right now as I am writing this I am on vacation with my wife visiting my parents on the Gulf Coast. This morning I was on the beach on the Gulf Islands National Seashore. The breeze was blowing and the waves were rolling on the shore with whitecaps as the sea was choppy. If you looked out on the horizon the sky was a dark gray and you could see the thunderstorm in the distance. The storm approaching was a heavy thunderstorm with lighting. It was a warning.
Right now we can see the storm approaching that is coming to consume and destroy our nation.
Our Christian culture and heritage along with the history of our nation is under attack. We are seeing everyday evidence that those on the left are showing their true colors when it comes to Christianty. They want to mold our faith into their image. They want to water down the Gospel and the Word of God into useless platitudes and new age humanist garbage. What scares me the most is that there are churches who are welcoming this with open arms.
But I know that below this deck on the ship of life is the “Master of the sea”. My Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. All He has to stand and say “peace, be still”. To be honest I’ve read the back of the Book and guess what, we win. Now that win will not be a walk in the park. As Christians you already know that the battle will be rough, but He is in control. Psalms 20:5-9 tells us
We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions. Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
What Man has meant for evil God will turn for good. Right now we need Christians to stand up and say that they will be counted in this fight against secular humanism that is plaguing this great nation that we hold dear to our heart and that was ordained by God.
We as a Christians right now should be praying that revival comes to the USA. God has blessed us as a nation for years. We have spit in his face and have turned away from Him. The Isrealites did that before and as we have seen in the Old Testament that their enemies ransacked them a few times ending with the Babylonian captivity. Do we not see what is going on here? Do we not see that the enemies of the Gospel are at our gates? We as a Christian culture have let the Sodomites in our house. They have just about taken over and we have just let them in the name of not offending anyone because of feelings. We have turned our worship services in to look at me shows. We have turned our preaching into a feel good talk and how to live your best life. We have taken the Bible out of our Churches and have let mammon run our Churches into the ground because certain groups have felt left out.
The Word of God is our instruction manual. The early Church is the laboratory. The Christian Church experiment worked for 2000 years. We didn’t need to change anything. Now we are reaping what we have sown by letting the secular humanists tell us how to have church and who to ordain.
Right now this storm is raging and we see it coming, but our Savior is here and He is about to stand up and say enough is enough peace, be still. The question is will be stand with Him?
