I am very pleased to see that many Americans are standing up for the US Constitution, Freedom, Liberty, Morality, Spending Restraints, Taxing Restraints, Personal Responsibility and many other principles that have made America great. I have not voted by Party for almost 20 years because I placed a value on my votes. I have to live with myself more than I have to live with any politician who may win an election. I believe the scriptures apply to now more than at any time in history because they were written for sustaining us against the worse that Satan can throw against us with all of 1/3 of the hosts of heaven’s pre-mortal existence.
Consider this verse from Revelations 3:16 “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” I have seen the Presidents Bush and many Republicans as the very people talked about in this verse. They were taking America down the road to a New World Order, or whatever you want to call it this year, and selling our rights and freedoms away as surely as President Obama is. They were moving much more cautiously and under more cover of deceit and secret combinations. Is President Obama a part of the secret combinations that are prophecied about? You can judge but I recommend that you decide, only after reading all of the Scripture references and praying to really know, by the power of the Holy Spirit or the “Spirit of Truth”.
Bible Dictionary“He is miserable in his situation, and “stirreth up the children of men unto secret combinations of murder and all manner of secret works of darkness” (2 Ne. 9: 9). He tries to imitate the work of God by transforming himself nigh unto an angel of light (2 Cor. 11: 12-15; 2 Ne. 9: 9; D&C 128: 20). He is also a worker of miracles, by which he deceives many upon the earth (Rev. 13: 1-15). In fact, the scripture says he deceives the whole world (Rev. 12: 9). He can cite scripture to make his point seem plausible (Matt. 4: 1-11). All of this is his scheme to make man miserable like himself. Protection against the influence of the devil is found by obedience to the commandments and laws of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The message of all the prophets and apostles is that truth, righteousness, and peace shall in the end prevail over error, sin, and war; the faithful shall triumph over all their afflictions and enemies, and shall triumph over the devil. There shall be a complete and lasting victory of righteousness over wickedness on this earth, which will be done by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Many people were lulled to compliance by the “lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot” offerings from both parties these last 20 years. Lukewarm could be stated as Moderate Republican or Moderate Democrat, both of which did a lot of damage by not following the US Constitution. They always were just far enough down the road to destroy America that nobody really guessed they were selling America out for their own gains and power and prestige. From an interview 23 April 2009 on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity”:
….”These guys are winging it. And they’re spending trillions of dollars winging it. They’re empowering themselves. You saw Congress last week and this week. That is a mob. It is a mob, a frenzied mob. The founders would be absolutely appalled by it.”
….”Without — the problem is we need to embrace our principles. They’re great things, and I’m not talking about a bunch of talking points. This is life and death stuff. This is liberty and tyranny stuff. Embrace what? A $53 trillion debt that these entitlement programs have created? What? A $9 trillion new debt that’s been created in the last six months?”
….”There’s no limit to the power they want to take. How can you confine what the leftist wants to do, what the statist wants to do once you’ve abandoned the constitution. You have to rely on their judgment? They have no judgment. This is why they talk about a living and breathing constitution. They want to get away from the limits on government, and you see it right now in spades.” These are Mark Levin quotes from the Hannity interview.
We need to keep on top of things now and make necessary changes to return to being God’s Country, living by His standards as best as we can or we will see the next terrorist attack be an enemy invasion for the first time in These United States of America. We already have Red China owning Panama Canal and Russia moving Air bases as close as Venezuela and Cuba. We have a government moving helter skelter towards Communism, Totalitarianism or Socialism of some decadent sort. I for myself and all I can control will serve God and I pray that all of America does the same. I pray that all of the world follows the God of our birth and creation as we have been blessed by Him and owe all we have and are to Him. Happiness is what God desires for us, as the scriptures so often remind us. This earth is a joyous place with much beauty and regenerative powers and it is obedient to it’s creator, even God our Heavenly Father.
8 Now, the decrees of God are unalterable; therefore, the way is prepared that whosoever will may walk therein and be saved.
9 And now behold, my son, do not risk one more offense against your God upon those points of doctrine, which ye have hitherto risked to commit sin.
10 Do not suppose, because it has been spoken concerning restoration, that ye shall be restored from sin to happiness. Behold, I say unto you, wickedness never was happiness.
11 And now, my son, all men that are in a state of nature, or I would say, in a carnal state, are in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity; they are without God in the world, and they have gone contrary to the nature of God; therefore, they are in a state contrary to the nature of happiness.
12 And now behold, is the meaning of the word restoration to take a thing of a natural state and place it in an unnatural state, or to place it in a state opposite to its nature?
13 O, my son, this is not the case; but the meaning of the word restoration is to bring back again evil for evil, or carnal for carnal, or devilish for devilish—good for that which is good; righteous for that which is righteous; just for that which is just; merciful for that which is merciful.
14 Therefore, my son, see that you are merciful unto your brethren; deal justly, judge righteously, and do good continually; and if ye do all these things then shall ye receive your reward; yea, ye shall have mercy restored unto you again; ye shall have justice restored unto you again; ye shall have a righteous judgment restored unto you again; and ye shall have good rewarded unto you again.
15 For that which ye do send out shall return unto you again, and be restored; therefore, the word restoration more fully condemneth the sinner, and justifieth him not at all. (Alma 41:8-15)
