Not only did Elijah flee, but after a day’s journey, he sat down in the desert and essentially asked God to kill him. “But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a [f]juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers,” (1 Kings 19:4). Why this change? Why did Elijah all of a sudden go from a tremendous high to a point where death seemed to be the only answer?
But apparently, Pastor Stan Mitchell takes direction from God’s “divine wind” in determining God’s will in matters of life and faith. In spite of the fact that God has made it abundantly clear that all sexual sin (not just gay sex) is an abhorrence to Him and that people who indulge in sexual sins cannot serve in leadership positions, Pastor Mitchell now believes that God has shown him something that is actually opposed to the clear teaching of God’s Word. How did Mitchell and other parishioners arrive at their new conclusion? Through emotional virtue, though they would certainly not acknowledge that at all. To them, it was a “divine wind.” I believe to God, it was nothing more than emotional virtue, the very foundation upon which Cultural Marxism is built.
Satan – using a garden variety snake – simply focused Eve’s attention on the command and then asked a question. “Did God really say what you think He said?” This caused Eve to start thinking and rethinking the whole thing. Well, gee, the tree sure looked good for food. Smells good too! Maybe we misunderstood God. Eve obviously did when she added that God told them they couldn’t even touch it, which is something God never said.
By having control over all these areas, Satan can control people in this realm. We can be brainwashed, just as many other societies and empires have done before us. The Roman Empire was well-known for its “bread and circuses” that kept people occupied with the basics foods and lots of entertainment. It kept people from thinking too much because their bellies were filled and the desire for entertainment was satiated.
But let’s be clear here though because in making these types of statements, it also means that what applies to Islam does not necessarily apply to any other religion. This is the full meaning of Obama’s statement. It does not matter that he referred to Christianity or Judaism or any other religion in his same speech to the UN. The fact that he specifically held up Islam as requiring special handling tells us a great deal.
n both cases – the passage from Revelation and the one from Mark, Jesus notes that the people of the house (of Israel) do not know when the master will return and because of that, they should stay awake and prepared. There are many today – mostly in the Preterists and Reformed/Covenant camps who believe that Jesus already returned spiritually in AD 70 when God judged the nation of Israel by causing Roman armies to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The problem with this interpretation is that it is simply not Scriptural. Jesus said when He returns, every eye would see Him (Matthew 24), and in Acts 1, the disciples are told (after Jesus is taken up to the clouds physically) that this Jesus would return the very same way, meaning in the clouds and physically.
America is a country that is being profoundly attacked from within. The fact that there is a very good possibility that a statue of Baphomet is being constructed and may very well be placed in front of the Oklahoma State House is not only perplexing, but grieving. There is no excuse for it and the only reason that can be offered is that America has sunk to this point through a constant posture of pushing God away.
