December 2011 Outcry

               The day I got saved, I realized the Bible was the most amazing book ever compiled.  The Author of Scripture came to live inside us to interpret it, and most importantly, apply it.  Romans 1:20-32 outlines man’s rebellion against God in different forms and the end result being death.  This is perhaps one of the most sobering passages in the New Testament because it continually unfolds in manifestations in our news.  The Pastor of the largest church in America stated at the inauguration of the lesbian mayor of Houston that she was God’s choice for that office.  Proverbs 29:2 says ”When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”  Does God rejoice in the rule of the wicked?  The latest news from Houston is that two street preachers face a bench trial for preaching against the sin of homosexuality before a lesbian judge in that city. Freedom is under assault by the wicked.  God and His Word are one and if His Word condemns lifestyle choices as sin and calls them wicked, then He does not choose the wicked to rule as mayor or sit on the bench.  If the pastor is confused, what will be the condition of His congregation?            

               If the pastor thinks it is OK to vote for the wicked will the people think it is OK to vote for the wicked?  How much compromise flows from the top all the way through the congregation?  The same passage in Romans 1 condemns nature-worship as worthy of death.  Through the Endangered Species Act, liberal activists are attempting to shut down all oil and gas exploration in America.  They want $10 a gallon gas to eliminate their manufactured issue of global warming.  As the data was examined, it was discovered that nearly all the temperature collection stations at higher altitudes were eliminated creating the results they wanted, the appearance of warming.  When man accounts for less than 2% of the carbon emissions on earth only the deceptive would pronounce man responsible for global warming.  The educational elites, the lunacy fringe dominating one political party and the current administration in DC all govern with a philosophy that brings death to jobs.  President Obama just killed the Keystone XL Pipeline worth 200,000 jobs.  The President of the Laborers International Union of North America said, “The administration chose to support environmentalists over jobs”.       

                Fish and Game in Texas has been pushing the listing of the Sand Dunes Lizard on the Endangered List.  But why?  The only reason is to initiate a moratorium on all drilling and exploration in the Permian Basin, historically America’s greatest producer of oil.  New technologies are reviving production in old fields by discovering unforeseen layers of gas and oil.  If your motivation is to kill all fossil fuels then we see why environmentalists are pushing the endangered species issue which for them has nothing to do with endangered species.   When the wicked rule, the righteous groan.  How much groaning will it take for America to realize the people in many regions of the country we are electing to the highest offices in the land are the most perverse ever?    How do we pray when we realize we elected the wrong people to office?  We pray them out of office!  We pray the Psalms!  We pray sowing and reaping asking God to kill their campaigns in the same way they have brought injury to America.  Paul asked God to do to Alexander what Alexander did to Him.  What Paul did is available to us-we should be doing it.  Next year is one of the most important ever in American history and what we pray can make a big difference.  The US Senate just decriminalized homosexual and beastiality.  The House of Representatives has to make that vote.  Romans 1 says every yes vote deserves a Psalm 55:15 prayer.  Please pray accordingly!
