Patriot of God and country unwound … And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. ~ Romans 1:28-32

Considering that the Apostle Paul penned those sentiments in A.D. 60, he pretty well had it all pegged out as to where we would be (and are) today in this day and age, wouldn’t you say? Mighty prescient of him if you ask me. A Patriot even.

Godly Patriot Jonathan Edwards and “Sinners in the hands of an angry God”…

The true fact of the matter is that we are far, far, far down the road from the Christ admonition in Matthew 7:13-14 to “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”.

A couple of weeks or so ago, FB friend Greg Williams (a true Patriot, believe me) posted one of the most heartfelt and responsive cries for repentance that I have arguably ever witnessed. Certainly up there with “Sinners in the hands of an angry God” from Patriot Pastor Jonathan Edwards in 1741 (link provided below), and very much in tune with where we are today spiritually, emotionally, and physically, not only in America, but worldwide.

Check out the Patriot and his opener for instance:

I find myself more discouraged than at any time in my entire life. I am utterly broken-hearted, and although I face some of the most trying personal circumstances that I have ever encountered, they are not what grieves me. It is the condition of our country – MY country, being literally destroyed right before my eyes, and seeing the world getting darker, and darker, as so many of my fellow-Americans have completely lost any sense of right and wrong, and are being literally carried by the seduction of demonic forces that have revealed what apparently has been lying latent beneath the surface, and they are making expression of so much hate that far transcends racial lines.

Patriot James Davison Hunter…

Race is, I’m afraid, an EXCUSE for other underlying issues that can’t be civilly confronted, because of the shaming, and literal terrorizing into being intimidated to speak honestly, and freely, lest you get labeled by some new term that is designed to silence us, and becomes a hindrance to any chance of real reconciliation on many levels. The orchestration goes far beyond the MSM, and hate groups like any white supremacists, or ANTIFA, BLM, or whatever else keeps emerging day after day, as we all end up pointing fingers at the ‘other guy’; whatever that means to you and me. The things I see and hear, coming from ALL ‘colors’, literally brings me to tears. The orchestration is of course, by the spirit of the anti-Christ in MANY forms, but what grieves me is WHY!

The Patriot then goes on:

The real reason WHY is that God is withdrawing His restraints from our culture, society, families, economy, churches, and even our very hearts and minds simply because we have ALLOWED it! Abortion, sex trafficking, pornography, and yes, the newest form of perversion, which has come on the heels of our sitting idly by while we allowed the legalization of same sex ‘marriage’, attempts at normalizing and legitimizing gender ‘fluidity’, and the down-spiraling towards complete reprobation by applauding gender dysphoria, which USED to be correctly identified as ‘gender identity disorder’, along with numerous other departures from the simplicity of – ‘male and female created He them’.

Our ARROGANCE in redefining everything, including the true nature of what it really means to be LOVING, has devolved into an entitlement-enabling SICK counterfeit that calls anyone with convictions and the real capacity to love, ‘haters’ for simply speaking the truth! The people hated THE MOST in our culture are those who have the audacity to BE HONEST! Charlottesville, and now Houston, and the reactions by the widening gaps of divisiveness that ensue along racial, political, sexual, and every other perfunctory, myopic, imaginary lines of demarcation have NOT caused any of what we see, but it has revealed what was ALREADY simmering underneath our collective DESENSITIZED psyches, so calloused toward evil that we only gratify OUR OWN special interests; and I don’t mean political lobbyists!

The Patriot and his closer:

The tolerance of ‘The Church’, and no, I do NOT mean the RCC (although many RCC are certainly a part of THE Church) into a gradual drift into acceptance of what offends God’s sensibilities so as NOT to offend the culture, as well as an allowance of heretical (and I do know that term can be, and is, used too loosely) teachings that make the very name of Jesus a BLUR now, because we have lost TOUCH with the worship that Jesus spoke of that is in Spirit AND IN TRUTH, which literally means that many people who speak of Jesus, IN THEIR conceptual IMAGES IN THEIR MIND are worshiping an IDOL – not The Christ, the SON of the living GOD!

The Patriot calling out for God and Jesus Christ…

This my friends, is the starting point, where we got off track, and ALLOWED everything else to gradually suck up our very hearts and minds to the point where we now find ourselves wallowing in the grieved PIGSTY of an immoral abyss. It is also the starting point of where we get BACK ON TRACK, and the responsibility falls on US – NOT on political, social, cultural, economic or any other human constructs, but plain, old-fashioned REVIVAL, and a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit that will certainly come to OPEN HEARTS and MINDS that return to the simplicity of FAITH and REPENTANCE! Don’t give me any grieved religiosity of some invalid naysaying that there is no such possibility. Who was it that Jesus was speaking to when He said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock?”

It was the churches IN NEED OF A RETURN TO THEIR FIRST LOVE! If you can’t see any possibility of such a new work in the Church that overflows to the world, feel free to continue to wallow.

I refuse to!


The Bible predicts that between man’s “sin nature” and Satan’s desire to “kill and destroy” God’s creation, lawlessness will one day engulf the world. In fact, it predicts that the world will be completely controlled by a person it describes precisely as the “lawless one” – the Antichrist.

The only thing that prevents that from happening today is the presence in the world of the “restrainer of lawlessness” – the Holy Spirit. But someday soon, God the Father will decide that the world has finally chosen “lawlessness” and He will remove the Restrainer.

Don’t miss that escape. Trust me, you do not want to be on this earth when lawlessness reigns [unrestrained]. I believe the start of this terrible time is near [according to prophecy timelines, history and current events], so my friends, do not put off receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and accept the gift of pardon, for which he gave his life to purchase for you.” ~Hal Lindsey Report 10/21/2011

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. ~ Romans 1:24-27
