"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Ephesians 6:11-12 (KJV)
Last Sunday, we were re-convicted about something we've discussed many times in the past: Keeping God where He belongs in the affairs of Texas.
Over the past year, Texas has done well on this front. While our leaders spend waaay too much money, they have also protected the unborn and blessed Israel. Those are HIS issues.
Without dwelling on past hits, this website exposed the true nature of our political opponents:
In December 2012, we wrote:
Conservatism as political idolatry will never beat Marxism as political idolatry. Conservatism as political idolatry cuts off our roots. The Declaration of Independence ... is built on a view of man first articulated in Genesis 1:27.... In other words, the foundation of what the American right seeks to conserve is a saying of God. Conservatism as political idolatry, by contrast, couldn't beat Lena Dunham and Sandra Fluke.Conservatism as political idolatry can probably beat Wendy Davis, but it will NEVER change business as usual in the Texas legislature, nor will it beat Julian Castro. As illustrated above, Marxism is a Satanic ideology. You eliminate your foundation when you ignore the fact that free enterprise is uber-Biblical.
We can't do it alone, but if our activist core humbles itself, prays, seeks HIS face, and repents, Texas will be fine.
