Rivers of Life in a Wasteland of Deceit

I’m the first one in line to die
When the cavalry comes

Yeah it feels like the great divide
Has already come

I’m wasting my way through days
Losing youth along the way…

Ted Cruz 2016


Do we, who claim to be Christian, stand upon our firm foundation or are we heading toward the exits? Are we pressing forward or merely planning our retreat?

Most days I feel like a soldier without a sword… or even a battle plan.

Exchanging Godly truth for carnal lies is not a task for the lukewarm or the meek. The timid need not apply.

Woodrow Wilcox


We are weak in the flesh but does our spirit ever lead?

The great Christian reformer, Martin Luther,  struggled mightily with self-pride throughout his life (even if he was reluctant to admit it) but he could never be accused of lacking boldness in matters of faith and the gospel of Christ…

“If I profess with loudest voice and clearest exposition…the truth of God except that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be… Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved”

Babies are being murdered and their body parts sold to the highest bidder. How shall we allow the God-haters and the deceived to dictate the boundaries of truth and normalcy?

The Godly standard is very clear on all matters of moral righteousness. No matter how much the servants of Satan try to trivialize the absolute nature of good and evil, the normalization of sin can only lead to death. This is why fabricated science, manipulated polls, deceptive policy, forceful intimidation and unreported governmental lies have become so commonplace. This is also why most Republicans are part of the wider one-party global agenda that proceeds to support Obama every step of the way. Theirs is a plan that leaves no room for Christ. If you follow them please understand that you will be checking your Savior at the door.

There are no good guys left. They’ve all sold their soul.

If it seems that the whole world has gone mad you can be certain that it’s not just a bad dream. What we are clearly witnessing are demonic forces using everything at their disposal in an attempt to annihilate the necessity of Christ.

See the signs and stand for what’s right…

If God is on my side
Then who can be against me *
