|Proposition 8 - the great shaking - come Lord Jesus
PROPOSITION 8 - ELIMINATES RIGHT OF SAME-SEX COUPLES TO MARRY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
On 07 Oct 2008, the CBN reported that "Hundreds of California pastors are calling on their congregations to fast and pray in support of Proposition 8. The 40 day fast will culminate with a November 1 rally at Qualcomm Stadium". With their political and financial might, the Christian Rightt has joined in an unholy alliance with their traditional foes - the Mormons and Catholics to force the proposition to go through with massive advertisements and tons of money - more than 30 million. Whilst they claim that because of their faith they are for Proposition 8, they are really redefining their faith as being centered on an "anti-gay" platform instead of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. The bible warns us not to worship together in a common platform of faith causes, because ultimately, it takes away the main focus of our Christ centered faith. The Christian Right is willing to sleep with the Devil to come against Gays. Talk about sacrifices!. .
As the Christians gather in churches and stadiums in prayer meetings to support Proposition 8, to eliminate Gay marriages, it is not surprising that they are earnestly supported by the Mormons, and the Catholic groups. It was not much different in Hitler's Germnay, where Hitler, a staunched Catholic thought he was doing God's will, and Christians went along with it. Sixy years later, with much less support, Proposition 8, is on the verge of being defeated despite the unholy alliance between the Christian Right, the Mormons, and the Catholics.
We always thought that it would be "world peace" that would unite the religions to overcome their inherent differences. We were wrong, it was their common hatred against the Gay community. This common hatred overcame the fact that the Mormons and Catholics claim to be Christians and in fact the only true Christians whilsts worshiping not Jesus Christ - but Joseph Smith, the Pope, Mary, and the Saints. Since, Peter have all the keys to heaven and all, surely, we better not make him angry when we get to heaven's doors. Gay sex is seen as so immoral, and much much worst that worshiping pagan and man made gods.
We would have thought that the Evangelicals would have be careful in who they choose as bed fellows. Never mind that Mormons can have multiple wives and underage sex orgies, and the Catholic priests known for their abuse of children and other affairs whilst bounded by their vow of celibacy. The Mormons and Catholics must be so jealous of Gays, having so much more sex than them or at least is what the evangelicals project them as a hedonistic immoral group.
Proposition 8 must go through because we want to blame Gays for destroying the heterosexual marriages. Never mind that the Mormons having multiple wives, many children, and known for their very large compounnds where they have sex orgies as a religious duty. What part of straight marriages (95% of the time) has to do with gays? None. We have the greatest self righteous Christian religion ever seen in history, and we dare talk about God shaking the nations for their unrighteousness?
There is a common theme now going through the churches in Singapore about being shaken. They thought that it is the stock market, the financials, the economic activity of the nations that will be shaken. It is true, but when one looks at the roots of these activities, they linked to the Christian Right. The first banks were created not to help the poor, but to support the crusades. The whole financial system necessitate that we grow, otherwise it will collapse as it is over leveraged ie what is have as deposits is less than 5% of the loans given out. Growth became a mantra with the merchants going out to search for new lands for resources. Whilst the merchants and the army invaded, the priests on board the ships spread the religion as new colonial masters It is not surprising that the main backers of the Republican Party is the Christian Right and the large businesses. The same trio are the main supporters of war in Iraq.
.(1 Pet 4:17,18 NKJV) For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
There will be a historic shaking that will be starting - at it will start with the church against the excesses, its self righteousness, hoarding of wealth and power, and its worshiping of man and power rather than Christ. Why, for the sake of end time revival!. How could the Gospel spread if the church if full of crookes and worst sinners that the outside world!. There would not be a harsh shaking if we had preached of grace, but instead we have preached on God's Law, and by the Jewish Laws we will be judged and condemned.
Jesus is coming back, and He is becoming back for a beautiful bride, and when we have a world wide revival. We thought that in 1948, when the Jews got back Israel that the end times was near as the time of the gentiles ended in Jerusalem, but truly, the time of the Gentiles ended in 1967 when Jerusalem was retaken but the fact remains that new temple in Jerusalem where Jesus is prophesised to come back has not been built till todate and the location now sits the Blue Mosque. The word of God has not been preached to all nations, in the sense that revival as seen in the Gospels and as happened at Jerusalem in the book of Acts has not occured in many parts of the world.
Is Jesus coming back tommorow? No, because Jerusalem is not ready and billions of people are still trapped in worship of idols, and man made gods even most of those who claim to be Christians. The longest living man in the bible was Methusaleh, living a total of 969 years. His name means "When he dies, judgement will come....". When he died, the flood came. God is so great, full of mercy and grace, and was so slow in judgement that he made Methusaleh the longest living man. That was the ultimate shaking, which destroyed everthing except Noah. At the Cross, there was darkness and a great shaking, and never again God would flood nor destroy the whole world because of His Son. Noah's Ark went through the flood is a type of Christ, who took us from the depths of sin and death, to rise up above the waters of baptism.
There is a lot of talk about post trib and pre-trib and whether Christians will go through it. One side is saying that we Christians are the salt of the earth, and so once the salt is taken, then tribulation will come. However, the apostles suffered tribulation, the early Christians did, but we lost our saltiness as a church in the dark and middle ages when one can buy their way into heaven for crusade fund raising. How can the salt regain its saltiness? We have forgotten that it is Grace, the rainbow sign, that God did not send the tribulation as He did in the days of Noah. Christians have suffered tribulation for the last two thousand years when they contend for the true faith based on sole allegience of faith in Jesus, His death and resurrection. The early Christians did which was the main motivation for the book of Revelation, for Jesus to come back, and free them from their suffering and bring tribulation upon their oppressors. Two thousand years later, we mocked the Gay Parades, but look and behold, their rainbow colored flags. God is telling us, in the midst of those we so condemned as ungodly sinners, His grace towards us. Remember mercy, remember Grace, says the Lord of Hosts.
There was a great shaking in Oct 31, 1519, less than 500 years ago which changed the world. The Pope used to owned one third of the lands in Europe and controlled the Nations. That day, marked the start of the end. Today, the Church is the most powerful, and owns much of the power and wealth and even to decide who would be elected as President in USA eight years ago. There will be a shaking so powerful, the next reformation, hopefully that will not take another 500 years!.
Come Lord Jesus, come.
