… the Devil, taking him [Jesus] up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the Devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
from Luke 4
To every man there openeth
A way, and ways, and a way.
And the high soul climbs the high way,
And the low soul gropes the low:
And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A high way and a low,
And every man decideth.
The way his soul shall go.
– John Oxenham
Jesus never was the reason for the season. Santa or some other fantasy is what this present world covets.
The iPhone, the Golden Calf, Government, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Mickey Mouse, the Washington Monument Phallus, Mohammed, The Trinity, The Mother of God – they all make entertaining stories for children – not one of them will lead you or your children out of the land of bondage. Call them what they are: idolatrous beasts from the mind of man.
Republicans, Democrats, Roman Catholics, Mormons, Mennonites, Muslims, Atheists, and Evolutionists alike have raised their children to believe lies from the moment of their births. Now their children believe anything that’s told them without hardly a second thought.
Time to burn your idols, oh America. You may yet recover from your infection. Turn to the one, true God.
I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.
33 So Paul departed from among them.
34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
The State of New Hampshire, whose motto is “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”, chose Death yesterday along with a majority of the rest of the States. Since men have free will, they will get their wish. For those of us who chose Liberty:
“Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” and
“My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus“.
Keep looking up, to the one true God that is. Semper Fi.
This is the day which the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
