“Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. “If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:14-15, NASU)
As I have walked around the city of Charlotte, North Carolina this month, it is prevalent all over – in public shopping centers, movie theatres, on social media and local news. The word “pride” is being pushed in our faces and celebrated as the new accepted way of life.
The biblical and historical symbol of the rainbow, historically given by the Living God as a promise to Noah and all mankind since, to never destroy the earth again by water, is being lifted up as the new symbol of “freedom”.
Let it be known loud and clear, that “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” He, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is the only Way, the only Truth, the only Life. We will not be deceived and fall to the agenda of others.
If I don’t stand against the lies and deception, my grandkids won’t know the Truth. Therefore, I will, and am, standing in the face of this onslaught.
As is also popularly said in sports venue around the country, when the other team comes into town wanting to claim the victory, “NOT IN MY HOUSE!”
“The wisdom of the sensible is to understand his way, But the foolishness of fools is deceit. Fools mock at sin, but among the upright there is good will. The heart knows its own bitterness, and a stranger does not share its joy.
The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish. There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
Even in laughter the heart may be in pain, and the end of joy may be grief.
The backslider in heart will have his fill of his own ways, but a good man will be satisfied with his. The naive believes everything, but the sensible man considers his steps.
A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is arrogant and careless. A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, and a man of evil devices is hated.
The naive inherit foolishness, but the sensible are crowned with knowledge. The evil will bow down before the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.” (Proverbs 14:18-19, NASU)
The evil and wicked acts of men and women who seek to parade and flaunt their “freedom” in our streets will not prevail. This country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and on those we will stand. Not on the false agenda of the few who seek to destroy our biblical way of life.
Politicians, teachers, even so-called “pastors” who spread non-biblical words of death will be held accountable for their actions.
There is a God. He rules in the heavens, and on earth.
No one will cast aside His rule and authority without paying the eternal price.
As for me and my house, WE will serve the Living God. We will not fall to the lies and deception of those who lift up and push in our face another god.
“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He will also hear their cry and will save them.
The Lord keeps all who love Him,
But all the wicked He will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.”
