“THE TIME HAS COME FOR JUDGMENT TO BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD..” 1 PETER 4:17
First, I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who John and I have met and communicated with throughout the campaign. We want to thank you for your care and support. We have met so many wonderful folks, sharing the same heart for Godly government. We especially appreciate all your prayers throughout this campaign. Thank you also for your prayers and support through an unexpected emergency surgery and recovery. God is faithful and He is bringing me through and I am humbled by so many people who have demonstrated their love and concern for John and for me. We know how difficult campaigning can be and how physically and emotionally taxing it is. John and I want to thank each candidate in both political parties for their individual convictions and efforts to make this nation a better place to fulfill God’s plan of life. We are praying that God’s purposes will be accomplished at the end of the U.S. Senatorial race. We also want to send well wishes to every Congressional Candidate and to all others who are working so hard to seek public office locally, statewide and nationally.
But now, at the end of this race, I am compelled to share my convictions with Christians everywhere. What will it require for the children of God to finally wake up and realize that if we do not send God’s voice to Washington, there will be a judgment and it will begin with the house of God in these United States? I am shockingly and grievously astounded by the hardness of heart and deafness of ears and blindness of eyes of so many “Believers” and their election choices in this Republican United States Senatorial race. God has revealed to me, over the course of the past 15 years, that this very lethargy and apathy is influenced by the infiltration and influence of “the world and its ways”, its power and money. These worldly forces rule and control the hearts and souls and lives of hundreds of thousands of Believers, Christian Ministries and Churches. Yes, you are hearing me correctly and I will not apologize for this truth! Ministries and Churches, as well as many Christians, have fallen to such ploys of the evil one. The point is that satan (and satan does not deserve to have his name capitalized!) has poured profound fear and “the sense of entitlement” into the hearts and minds of many Christians, Christian Ministries and Christian Churches, to the point that many Believers, Ministries and Churches will not fully lay down their lives for Christ, if it requires sacrificing their possessions and positions and powers. VOTING IS MOTIVATED BY WHAT ONE MAY POSSIBLY GAIN OR LOSE, AND NOT WHAT GOD’S WILL MAY BE. Many Ministries and Churches “hide” behind Federal Regulation excuses to avoid being bold enough to point out the full Truth that stands before the very eyes of their souls. Many organizations have also created on and off line “gatekeepers” and “moats” to protect and guard themselves from the penetration of the full truth and Gospel of Jesus Christ. How much longer will God tolerate this “watered-down” and “self- serving” Christianity that permeates our nation today?
I am also sadly astounded by the lethargy and laziness of many Believers, Christian Ministries and Churches who continue to allow the majority media outlets, their editors and their reporters across Kentucky and the nation, to influence and control the Christians’ voting choices, INSTEAD of seeking God’s face for His choices. WAKE UP CHRISTIANS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!! It has never been more crucial of a time for Christians to FULLY UNDERSTAND that this world is not our home! The prince of darkness is using media outlets, editors and reporters to control political races, making choices for the general public, disregarding every filed candidate because “these candidates do not meet the media criteria”. When will you realize that media is not of God and will not show fairness or righteousness to every candidate? If you doubt what I am saying then let me encourage you to view last evening’s Republican U.S. Senate Candidate KET debate hosted by Bill Goodman. (SEE LINK.) This is a classic example of elitism, arrogance and control of media outlets who have decided who the “real candidates” will be and disregard any other candidate. Let me assure you, media will not, do you hear me, will not endorse or report on any Christian candidate that is running through the power of God. Why do you think John Stephenson is not being mentioned or his campaign covered by media across the state of Kentucky as are other candidates? Millions of dollars, Washington influences, and “the right sound bytes” are the answer. The John Stephenson Republican Candidate for U.S. Senate campaign embodies the truth of God for our nation to return to God for confession of sin for our allowing abortion to go on for too devastatingly long and for forgiveness and for restoration and for healing of our nation. This is only going to come through God and Godly principles. Ninety-Nine Percent of Media outlets refuse to print this or cover this campaign. IF YOU ARE A TRUE CHRISTIAN, PLEASE, WAKE UP before it is too late!!!
I am astounded that so many Believers cannot see that the United States of America is going to continue to spiral downward and falter and suffer and pull further away from God and Godly principles until the voice of God is COMPLETELY SILENCED in our country! UNLESS we try to return God to the throne in America, there is no hope for our nation. America will not return to God until we, as the people of God, send someone to Washington who is willing and obedient to carry the voice and Word of God to the halls of the Senate. John is not afraid to speak the truth in love, through God. Before it is too late, we need a bold voice in Washington who will demand, as his first Senatorial act, to introduce, through the power of God, and to push through, a Human Right to Life Amendment. Christians, please, I beseech you, stop voting for candidates based on political parties, endorsements and the influence of media outlets. Media outlets will not report the truth of God and Media outlets will continue to block any man or woman of God. If you cannot see this now, you will one day, when judgment comes upon you. “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..” Romans 1:16. My friends in Christ, we are called to not to be ashamed of the Gospel and yet, by so many Christians, there is such “discomfort” and heads are buried in the sand. Don’t be ashamed!
This is my final installment before Election Day, May 18, 2010. Please give heed, not to me, but to the Words of God:
+ “For the time will come, when men will not put up with sound doctrines. Instead, to suit their own desires, they gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the Truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and discharge all the duties of your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:3-5
+ ”For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness..” Romans 1:18
+ “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 3:3-4
+ “Therefore, let him who thinks he stands; take heed that he does not fall.” 1 Corth. 10:12
+ “Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ…In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found faithful.” 1 Corth. 4:1-2
+ “WHATEVER YOU DO, do your work heartily, AS FOR THE LORD, RATHER THAN FOR MEN….IT IS THE LORD CHRIST WHOM YOU SERVE.” Colossians 3:23-24
+ “IT IS BETTER TO TAKE REFUGE IN THE LORD THAN TO TRUST IN MAN. IT IS BETTER TO TAKE REFUGE IN THE LORD THEN TO TRUST IN PRINCES.” Psalm 118:8-9
My final words of encouragement to each of you are the following: When you enter the voting booth on May 18th, please ASK GOD WHO HE WANTS YOU TO VOTE FOR, not a decision based on impressions or feelings or influences. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. In ALL YOUR WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE GOD, AND THEN HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATHWAY STRAIGHT.” Proverbs 3:5-6 . Several years ago, God spoke to my heart the following Scripture for John and for me: “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” 1 Corth. 1:27. John and I have been “seen by the world” as foolish and weak. But let me you assure you, we love the Lord our God with all our hearts, with all our souls, with all our minds and with all our spirits. God, through Christ, is our strength. We will happily look foolish and weak and we will happily continue to be rejected and ridiculed for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Will you???
Because He lives!!!
