JUDGMENT OF GOD “WORTH CONSIDERING” 1/13/21 From Ken Smith<><
Our experiment as a Constitutional Christian Republic may come to a close in just 7 days. If the lawless gain control of Senate, House and Presidency there will be nothing withholding from them. Gen.11:5-8, Romans 13. “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have [a] all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confound (mix up, confuse) their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from that place upon the face of the whole earth, and they gave up building the city.” Rom. 13:1-8 “Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment. 2 Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them]. 3 For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation. 4 For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience. 6 For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service. 7 Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due. 8 Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].” (This world in not our home.)
When Israel ceased to be guided by the prophets that God had sent they ended in slavery making bricks without straw for the Egyptians and Slaves of the Babylonian and their neighbors. As a nation our roots were once deep in the love of God, Country, Family and Apple Pie. I totally remember those days in Kentucky of real freedom. It was nothing thought about bringing your 22 rifle to school to try to find something for dinner on the way home from school. 10 Commandments were by the light switch, prayer, singing hymns and what ever, pledge of allegiance under God at the beginning of each school day. So besides our education we also were supported in the efforts of our parents to develop our conscience. A conscience to know right from wrong for our life time. Not much known about conscience today.
Seems to me that the Christian element of our Country went on vacation about 70 years ago after the 2nd World War. Gen. D. MacArthur wanted, 20,000 Christian missionaries for Japan after the war but never got them. And except for Billy Graham I have not seen much Gospel spread by Christians in these last 70 years. Most Christians today are very inhibited by fear in sharing the Good News of Jesus as LORD and SAVIOR. In fact today most of our schools are atheistic and teach Socialism that somehow the STATE is going to take care of us. As a type of Robin Hood. The problem is that “Absolute authority, corrupts absolutely.” And those who rise to the top in a socialism type of authority live like kings while the workers have less to live on before their revolution. And when they object to the broken promises, they are shot or are sent to work camps to learn how to better serve the state.
So we are coming into a time of either we get busy and pray for God’s Kingdom to be on earth as it is in Heaven in our country. Or we will suffer the whip of slavery like N. Korea and Venezuela and China. If Christians are not touching the world for Jesus, then they are being overcome by the world.. We need to often reflect on that scripture from John (1 John 2:14-17)
I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one. 15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. 17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.
So this nation that now sells more porn. than Bibles and murders it’s babies as in the way, may be in for some serious judgment from God, I certainly hope not. But we may know in a week, so be in prayer. Also start a “House Church” in your home: www.OhanaChurch.Life

Worthy Brief <email@example.com> A World Health Organization (WHO) team of international experts will fly from Singapore to Wuhan, China on Thursday in order to try and investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, Reuters reports. This mission has been relaunched following a setback last month when China denied entry to two investigators who were then forced to return home. US Vice President Mike Pence told House leaders Tuesday he does not support invoking the 25th Amendment process to remove Donald Trump, all but guaranteeing an impeachment vote against the besieged president. The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case involving a Georgia college student who was silenced, more than once, from sharing his Christian faith with fellow students on campus. A new report by a leading pro-life organization shows there has been an over 35% decline in the number of surgical abortion clinics in the US since 2009, Christian Headlines reports. However, the report shows, the number of facilities where abortion-inducing pills are distributed went up during the same period.
Be in prayer concerning the last election as to the validity as it has not yet had it’s day in court. There is still a week in which the Supreme Court could decide to review the evidence and disqualify the election on the basis of fraud and send the issue to the House for validation. One vote per state could give the win to Trump. Otherwise our Constitutional Republic is about to be shredded. But it is not a done deal till 1/20/21.
