Servants of Christ First - Conservatives Second









There is a massive power shift underway in Washington D.C. today, which is leading our nation to abandon our Judeo/ Christian heritage and founding principles at an alarming rate. Many evangelical Christians are seeing the exponential change in this country toward a secular, socialist state – especially in the last five years – which is, quite frankly, scaring them to death.

This concern is noteworthy and quite merited in light of the significant changes that are now happening, but many Evangelicals are IGNORANT of the Scriptural prophecies (predictions) describing these very events. They are stumbling over and wondering what Almighty God has been allowing to transpire here in the U.S.A. This rapidly shifting social/ political environment combined with a lack of understanding of what Almighty God’s Word clearly teaches about the day we live in HAS MADE for great confusion.

Many Evangelicals today are doubting and becoming offended in Almighty God’s providential management of the current status of the United States. It has also unified political evangelicals with other apostate "Christian" conservative groups under the "Name" of Jesus Christ bringing together both groups relative beliefs of who Jesus Christ is. This apostasy and ecumenicalism is bringing to the fore front the realities that many DO NOT truly have a saving relationship to the Christ of Holy Scripture. There is absolutely nothing wrong in working with other apostate "Christian" conservatives for the here and now but when they UNIFY under the Name of Jesus in a relativistic way there can only be confusion and the horrific ETERNAL ramifications that will follow (Matt. 7:21-23, 2 Tim. 3:7, 2 Peter 3:16, Rev. 20:11-15, 22:15). In light of our day, the Holy Scripture explains quite clearly what the Last Days would be like, and Almighty God expects His dear children NOT to be ignorant and foolish but wise and understanding about our day in which we are living in (Matthew 24; 1, 1 Thess. 4:13-18, 2 Thess. 2:3, Timothy 4:1-3).

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 3:1-7)."

We as Evangelicals and Conservatives here in America should do all we possibly can to slow the decaying process of this “dying corpse” of a once great nation by being the salt of the earth and light of the world, as Christ taught (Matt. 5:13-14). However our faith and hope should NEVER rest in Washington D.C., or the Constitution, or even in practicing our Judeo/ Christian conservative ideology (Jer. 17:5-9). Our faith and hope needs to be ANCHORED and ROOTED in Almighty God and His precious ETERNAL promises. The days of seeking to restore America to its former glory are well over. Wake up my Beloved! Our nation - and the entire world - has been decimated from the ongoing transgressions against the spiritual and natural laws of Almighty God (Isaiah 24:5). We are at the point of no return, the bottom of the vortex like it or not. This is a hard pill of reality for many Evangelicals and Conservatives to swallow, but it must!

These days in which we are living in are the catalyst leading to the soon approaching Day of the Lord, the Battle of Armageddon and Lord Jesus Christ's glorious second coming to earth to establish His 1000 Year Kingdom!

Praying (petitioning) for our nation (1 Timothy 2:1-4), having Tea Parties, calling our representatives and elected officials, being up to date on the issues, living out our Judeo/ Christian ideals, etc... is all fine and dandy, but DO NOT deceive yourselves into thinking that all of this effort and wishful thinking will re-establish a “Christian” conservative America or a “Christian” conservative utopia here on earth, with the gullible imagination that we will all live happily ever after. Again my friend, we have passed the point of no return in this regard. The steak has been left out in the sun too long and is totally spoiled.

This delusional reasoning is the Satanic Kool-Aid of the day that is being peddled by “religious” conservatives (Rom. 10:2-4, 2 Cor. 11:13-15) who do not honor or know not Almighty God in Spirit and Truth (Matt. 7:21-23; John 4:24; Jude 1:3-4). Many Evangelicals at present are drinking this poison and passing the jug around. Many are departing the faith and sound doctrine and apostatizing into many subtle isms. (1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Peter 2:1). Warning, Be not deceived!

Sadly, many Evangelicals today are oblivious to this Biblical reality. These have submersed themselves into the current events of the day and the restoration of Washington and it has absolutely consumed all of their time and energy. They have constructed a wall of worry, ignorance and temporal foresight so high that they cannot see and comprehend the hour and day in which we are living in. These days in which we are living in are the catalyst leading to the soon approaching Day of the Lord, the Battle of Armageddon and Lord Jesus Christ's glorious second coming to earth to establish His 1000 Year Kingdom! (2 Thess. 2:2-3, Rev 16:13-16, 19:11-21).

My friend, there is a Big Bad Tribulation headed our way and nothing is going to stop that event from transpiring.

My friend, there is a Big Bad Tribulation headed our way and nothing is going to stop that event from transpiring. These have set their “tent pegs” deep in the world reasoning and system, and their affections are on the things of temporal time. These have given a distant second status to their position in Christ and the Gospel proclamation to all the world (Matt. 28:19-20; Rom 1:16). They have lost their ETERNAL vision and focus, and the Heavenly calling given them by Almighty God, which is needed so drastically for today for our nation and world (1 Cor. 2:5; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Eph. 1:3; Col. 3:1).

Our Hope and future expectations are not to be found in this passing world but only in Almighty God and His eternal promises (1 John 2:15-17).

Our Holy admonition from Almighty God is that we are to be Christ’s servants (slave) first, and conservative patriots second. This is the proper order for the child of God (John 1:12) today.
.
Remember my Evangelical Conservative friends, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand and a big bad tribulation (Matt 24) is at our door step called "The Day of the Lord". May the Lord Jesus Christ have first place in our lives and may His glorious Gospel message be proclaimed in these Last Days (1 Cor. 10:31, 2 Cor. 5:17-21).

To God be the glory!

Yawn. Ignorant folk such as yourself have been predicting the mythical END TIMES for the last 2,000 years. LOL

And Peter told us about you nearly 2000 years ago - "scoffers who are willingly ignorant." And ignoring the fact that "...one day is with the Lord as a thousands years and a thousand years as one day."

What we've seen in the United States since the early 60's is the almost complete collapse of mainline protestantism.

That man will not look towards men but towards Jesus! said...

very good and insightful article.

the majority of mainline Evangelicals think that all they have to do is get out the "conservative vote" in 2010 to turn things back to a "Christian" Nation.

The sad fact is, our country has been stumbling in this direction for far longer than Mr Obama has been in office and it is because Evangelicals put their faith in pseudo-conservative politicians instead of God!

Yes the Bible does tell us of these times coming upon the earth. & I think we would all like to believe that if the Christians in this nation will do as God's Word says in 2 Chronicles 7:14:

humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Then this nation will rise again.

However I think the Christians of today are like the Jews in the time just before Jesus birth; looking for a messiah to be a great charasmatic military leader, rally the people to overthrow the "Romans" and re-establish a Theocracy based on what the people want not what God desires!

I would go farther and say that we need to be servants of Christ, period. Jesus told us that His kingdom was not of this world. ours should not be either.

Navyguns said...

It is sad to watch the "church" chase after political salvation. The Gospel is not political. You cannot change a nation unless you change the people. You cannot change the people unless they receive the Gospel. Our system of self-government demands our participation, but not our faith. Preach the Word and voice your opinion.

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

David and Navyguns, Well said! A lot of believers are drinking the Kool aid and taking their eye off of the great Commission.

Keep redeeming the time for God’s glory for the days are indeed evil!

hEY... Mr. Scoffer,
That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days SCOFFER, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;

(THIS IS WHY MR. SCOFFER) but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:1-9).

God loves you and is graciously waiting for you to turn to Him. Be sure not to turn your back on His love. For God so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him MIGHT BE SAVED (John 3:16-17).

I would love for you to tell me when the United States of America was a Christian nation? When exactly did we practice these Judeo/Christian principles you brag about? And by you combining Christian and Conservative in your diatribe I'm supposing you are saying the two are equal?

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

First of all.. my friend.... Read the Declaration of Independence... It is our Nation's birth certificate.

Also we were founded on the Judeo/Christian values... that are why we are the greatest nation in the world. Check out "the 5000 Year Leap".. This read will help you see why.

For those with ears that have been opened to hear and and eyes to see...
"However, the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath with which His anger
burned against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him. And
the LORD said, “I will remove Judah also from My sight, as I have removed Israel. And I will cast off Jerusalem, this city which I have chosen, and the temple (house) of which I said, ‘My name shall be there’.” “Surely at the command (mouth) of the LORD it came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, and also for the innocent blood which he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; AND THE LORD
WOULD NOT FORGIVE.” (All caps mine) 2 Kings 23: 26 & 27 and 24: 3 & 4.

This is even more appropriate...

Psalms 106:35-43 “But they mingled with the nations, And learned their practices (works), And served their idols, Which became a snare to them. They even sacrificed their sons and their
daughters to the demons, And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with the blood. Thus they became unclean in their practices (works), And played the harlot in their deeds. Therefore the anger
of the Lord was kindled against His people, And He abhorred His inheritance (people). Then He
gave them into the hand of the nations (gentiles); And those who hated them ruled over them. Their
enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their power (hand). Many times He
would deliver them; They, however, were rebellious in their counsel, And so sank down in their
iniquity.”

You are dead right. So many people claim thjat what you are doing is parroting previous apocalyptic doomsayers, while they deny what is happening before our very eyes, namely, the complete moral collapse much more promianent than any time in our nation's history.

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

Jimmy, the conservatives are the worse ones at this! It's all about fiscal policies while we are morally headed off the immoral cliff.

Conservatives see the BIG ETERNAL PICTURE… America’s days are numbered!!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
