|What The Bible Says Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice|
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When Ezra the ready scribe who came out of Israel's Babylonian captivity, saw that “the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands, yea, the hand of the princes and rulers have been chief in this trespass” (9:2), he rent his garment, plucked off hair, and sat down astonied. In the USA Christians have seen our leaders and media promote sodomites, transvestites, and now transsexuals to give them a revered place in our society! Ezra arose up from his heaviness, fell upon his knees and spread his hands unto the LORD his God and said, “O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens” (vr. 6). Apostate churches, having installed woman pastors in rebellion to God's word, are now installing these sexual deviants and boasting of their diversity. Bible believers are a remnant, not a majority: marching on a capital or into voting booths will not remedy our sin. We need to sit astonied until the evening sacrifice and then fall on our knees and spread out our hands unto the LORD our God. “He only is my rock and my salvation.”
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms writes,
Both Houses of Congress are controlled by the Republican Party. The United States Senate is currently composed of 54 Republicans, 44 Democrats, and two independents who caucus with the Democrats. U.S. Senators are elected to six-year terms. In each even-numbered year, elections to roughly one-third of the 100 Senate seats are held. This year, elections will be held for 24 Republican-held Senate seats and 10 Democrat-held seats. The fight for control of the Senate is expected to be hotly contested, and high-profile races are occurring in three nearby states. In Ohio, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) is being challenged by Democratic former Gov. Ted Strickland; in Pennsylvania, first-term Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) faces Democratic operative Kati McGinty; and in New Hampshire, first-term Sen. Kelly Ayotte faces incumbent Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan.
We may not be able to vote on these but we can certainly pray about each one of them. Let us fall on our knees and spread out our hands unto the LORD our God.
