A Peculiar People

February 3, 2009

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

Obama ends ban on U.S. funds to aid abortions

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has signed an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option.

The New York Times

Published: Tuesday, February 3, 2009

I did not vote for Obama. I pray for him to make God honoring decisions and to protect our nation; I also pray to prevent him from making un-Godly decisions. I’ve never heard anyone say Mr. Obama lacked savvy in dealing out a liberal death sentence. President Obama delayed signing the order to permit funding for family planning (abortion) until after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the Right to Life march.

I now see a scalpel being skillfully maneuvered into the flesh of this nation. Slicing ever so thinly at first; I fear these cuts, will not cause the nation much blood loss. Over the course of time, a short time I imagine, we will continue to see the flesh removed from a living and breathing U.S.A. The life blood of this nation will appear as droplets at first, and Americans will consent and submit.

The process: Step 1: Make the funding available for abortions. Step 2: Nationalize healthcare. Step 3: Include abortion under the healthcare umbrella. Step 4: Require healthcare professionals to perform abortions.

The process steps above are for abortion; I expect there will be other process steps for national bankruptcy, same sex marriage, pornography, and finally Christian and Biblical practice outlawed as hate speech.

I would prefer the scalpel cut deep raising the righteous indignation of a once Christian nation; now in the throes of decline and eventual passing. The capacity for liberality is reaching the limit of forbearance; to the epitome of all that is self indulgent. No one mentions the fact that great liberty requires even greater responsibility.

The appearance of invoking God’s blessing, to sustain this blot, is an offering to appease Christ’s people. Appeasement has become the acceptable payment to any voice of opposition where Godless decisions are made. However, God is holy and will not accept tongue in cheek reverence. There is no savor in offerings given with the expectation of a more liberal application of depravity.

I expect it will be much too late, when the full depth of flesh is removed and our nation’s heart exposed. I can’t say the final thrust will be from Obama. The recent decision for abortion and further depravity promised or proposed enables future abstinence from God, acquiescence by Christians, and God's righteous judgement. I'm not a poem writer but...

The smirk of a man Scalpel in hand His mouth with froth awaken

The smile of a man Scalpel in hand His strike is nearly taken

The laugh of a man Scalpel in hand His muscles tense does thrust

The surprise of a man Scalpel in hand His reward from God is just

I can’t imagine anything less than God’s righteous judgment on America. I envision that fatal stab, heart pierced, the world’s shock or pleasure, as the life blood pours from the body of our nation. Christians have the opportunity to change this event. The unjust have no vision or knowledge of what is required or for that matter that anything is wrong. If you were to ask someone if they think America is doomed, what response would you get back? The average citizen “their foolish heart was darkened,” can never see beyond self and their hope to continue and expand upon self indulgence.

If we want change in the USA’s outcome then Christians must get up and move. Yes, we can rest on knowing the final outcome is assured; or, we can obey all the Word and go forth proclaiming God’s grace and the Lord Jesus Christ. The word OCCUPY in Luke 19:13 is an action word. Here are two commentaries on this scripture:

"negotiate," "do business," with the resources entrusted. (Jamieson, Fausset, Brown)

Or, as it might much better be translated, trade till I come, Pragmateusasthe — be busy. So the word properly signifies. "You are sent forth to preach the gospel, to set up a church for Christ in the world, to bring the nations to the obedience of faith, and to build them up in it (Matthew Henry Complete).

Are you negotiating and doing business to turn this nation back to “…worship the Father in spirit and in truth…”? Do people know you and I as a peculiar people?

We must write articles to any column which will print, we must speak out through any media which will give us voice, we must get up, out, and occupy. The problem with you and I Christian brothers and sisters is 714 not 911; because, 911 belongs to the lost.

We can listen and obey the words God gave to Solomon… 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.

…or, we can accept Jesus revelation to John. Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

This may be our final opportunity to occupy in this present world. Will Christians acquiesce and deny the power of God?

Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

We are not supposed to be a silent majority.

KEYWORDS: americans; christians; responsibilities
I pulled this together early in 2009 just after President Obama released our tax dollars to fund international abortion. Obviously, there have been other processes since Feb. 2009.
