We saw the consensus of The Democratic National Convention Platform Planning Committee move to keep "God & Jerusalem" off the DNC Campaign Platform this election year. Ironically, President Obama told the DNC that he wanted to keep "God & Jerusalem" on the platform.
As the leader of America and the incumbent sitting president, Barack Obama is no different than the past historical political leaders of nations who made allowances for the worship of gods and God in the empires they ruled. But let's make no mistake, the United States of America and the world has been promoting the New World Order agenda.
President Obama is pro gay rights and gay marriage, pro contraceptives, Pro Choice and pro Palestinian State at the expense of dividing the biblical land grant of the Hebrew people. Barack Obama is following after his favorite president in history, Abraham Lincoln, who never declared his religious affiliation and who was thought by many secular and religious critics to be an infidel.
Regardless of any political parties' platform, the world at-large is begging to remove God and the talk of God from society.
On the other hand, Mitt Romney is pro the Book of Mormon and pro the richest 2% at the top of all American citizens.
Mitt's suggestion for young people is to become entrepreneurs by borrowing money from their parents' to start a business. Obviously, Romney's plan is out of touch with the other 98% of Americans.
I gained a new respect for Nuns this year, when they challenged the Pope over the issue of caring for the poor and sexually immoral. Just because Nuns care for homosexuals does not mean that they condone their lifestyle.
I wish more people would rightly divide the Word of Truth and explain to others that the Christian faith is not a sect, manmade denomination/doctrine or religion. Being a Christian is about imitating Christ's love, compassion and mercy.
Show Mercy and Compassion--Give Comfort and Care
Jude 1:23 (NLT)
"23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that
contaminate their lives."
So where can Evangelical Christians turn to this election year to decide who to vote for? Should they re-elect President Obama who believes in allowing people to have the Free Will of what to do with their bodies and the right to choose how they worship and who they marry?
Should Evangelical Christians vote for Mitt Romney who believes in a religious book that adulterates the Holy Bible?
We all have Free Will, but let's not forget that our choices bring consequences. Moreover God's Statutes and the consequences of deciding to act like our own god is clearly outlined in the Holy Bible.
Christians are called to be in the world, but not of the world.
1 John 2:15-17 (NLT)
Do Not Love This World
"15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever."
The social programs of the Democratic Party care for the masses, instead of leaving benefits only to those who can afford them.
I cannot focus on my financial gain as a businessman at the expense of those in need, hunger and poverty. I try to emulate Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul in having never taken pay to evangelize and write Christian apologetics. But it is not about me, it is about working to help people understand that Christianity is not a religion---it is a lifestyle and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ told us in Matthew 19:24 (NLT): "I'll say it again--it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!"
James 1:27 (NLT)
"27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you."
As Far as Religion and Politics and The Great Apostasy
"The apostle Paul, in his second letter to the Thessalonians, foretold the great apostasy which would result in the establishment of the papal power. He declared that the day of Christ should not come, "except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." And furthermore, the apostle warns his brethren that "the mystery of iniquity doth already work." 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4, 7. Even at that early date he saw, creeping into the church, errors that would prepare the way for the development of the papacy."
The Vatican initiated Tony Blair Faith Foundation and Faith and Globalization Initiative are the two leading organizations working in conjunction with the United Nations and international powers to make a Palestinian State in Jerusalem. Many people believe that if pre-existing Six-Day War borders are re-established and a Palestinian State is developed in Jerusalem that it will lead to WWIII. But again, the prophecies of the Holy Bible informs us that many horrific things must come to pass for the fulfillment of God's promises.
How Politics may Reveal the Son of Perdition--The Final Antichrist
The Faith and Globalization Initiative seeks to equalize and marginalize all religions. But obviously there would have to be One World Religious Leader to oversee religion in the world, and that person would be the final Antichrist.
2 Thessalonians 2:4-5 (NLT)
"4 He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God.
5 Don’t you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you?"
Revelation 12 tells us that the devil, Antichrist and his cohorts desire to war against Israel.
The final Antichrist will break the covenant with Israel during the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27). But here is the promise---God's plan for the world and earth will be accomplished and carried out as exactly written in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, Daniel, Zecchariah, etc., etc., and Revelation.
What Are Christians to Do?
All Christians have to do as we move to a time in the world, whereby the final Antichrist will be revealed is remain pure.
Romans 12:2 (NLT)
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."
I know that I have given you enough information on this Blog and the Web site xpknights.net for you to understand that Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism are the two major global religions that contradict God's Word. I strongly believe that these two religions are the divided kingdoms and make up the religious side of Babylon the Great that has fornicated with political Babylon and the rulers of the earth (Revelation 17:2).
First and Second Thessalonians---as well as Revelation 13, 14-18 is for you to read and study to allow the Holy Spirit to open your understanding and put the Holy Bible into a global context.
Paul’s Final Advice
12 Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. 13 Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other.
14 Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid.
Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.
15 See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people.
16 Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
19 Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. 20 Do not scoff at prophecies, 21 but test everything that is said.
Hold on to what is good. 22 Stay away from every kind of evil.
Godspeed, love and peace be with you,
Brother Johnson, XU
