I get e-mails often where people are writing about what is happening, some are true and some aren’t, with our country that is temporal.

What do I mean by temporal?

The latest is the gun control issue. Got one today from a friend, written by “who knows who” because there is never a signature on the majority of those. The purpose is to upset, scare or cause some other emotional action from the readers.

These NEVER work on me because as with the Bible, I care what it says and why it states this at this particular time- at least I don’t have to look to see if the Bible is true or not- but I do with ALL other items I receive.

Back to the gun issue- seems people are afraid President Obama is going to take all our guns so he can take control of the country- by force, as did many prior regimes, latest being Cuba. Ok lest say he is heading that direction.

So what can you and I do? Nothing! Yep, nothing! Why can’t we just vote all the Democrats out of office and put those Jesus loving Republicans in and solve this whole issue? Sounds simple enough don’t it?

Again we have to look into the Truth- yep God’s Word to see. If you want to go some other direction then you are going the wrong way- God IS in control and if you don’t “truly” believe that- you need to go to Jesus, seek Salvation “with” His Lordship!

Daniel 2:21, He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.

Psalm 75:7, But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.

Romans 9:17, For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”

Exodus 9:16, But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.

Do you think, at the time the Israelites thought God was in control when they were slaves in Egypt, or when Judah was taken into captivity in Babylon? If they looked at thing from a victim issue of course they could NEVER see God at work.

See Judah had rebelled against God (like us) they didn’t want God telling them what to do (separation of church and state) they wanted to live without His guiding their children (no prayer or teaching of God in schools).

Gosh is there a comparison between America and the nation of Israel? Yes there definitely is, so the issue has NOTHING to do with guns, President Obama, Freedom, life or even death- the issue has everything to do with- Jesus:

2 Chronicles 7:14, if my people, who are called by my name, will 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.

When we look at the churches in America today, in many cases, it is hard to tell there is a difference in their members and those of the open sinful world. Even many of those standing in pulpits don’t speak the truth, but as:

2 timothy 3:1-5, But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

Read this Scripture carefully- this is “church people, this is pastors of churches, this is those “thinking” they are right with God but a LOST! We can, if we care, look around and see this in many places. Churches where pastors will not preach on sin, repentance, Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Then are good at preaching on feel good religion, great motivational speakers, so that people only hear what they “want” to hear- having a form of godliness but denying it’s power!
