A few months ago i saw on DVD the movie, For Greater Glory, starring Raul Julia. Excellent movie something every Christian especially Catholic should see. Around 1926 the President, Calles, decided the Catholic Church to be his political enemy and tried to suppress the faith. Churches were invaded and priests captured were executed on the spot. Mexico was a Catholic country, the last place you would expect this, much more Catholic than the U.S. is presently.
Think about it. If it happened in Mexico it could happen here. Look at the way this country is going. Our last president considered us to be his enemy and did every thing to oppress the Church that he could with his contraception mandate. And we let him get away with it. He was reelected with around 50% of the Catholic vote. How stupid can we be!
The Catholics in Mexico refused to sit by and do nothing. They fought back rebelling after peaceful protests failed. They with political support from the U.S. thanks to pressure from the Knights of Columbus forced Calles to give in and allow the churches to reopen and mass to be said.
We need to follow their example and fight back. Despite the change in the presidency the church is still under attack. The Little Sisters of the Poor are still being forced to pay a penalty or pay for abortion and contraception coverage. President Trump issued an executive order stopping this but the attorney generals of 5 states sued and a Federal Court threw out his order. They don’t care what the Constitution say. They don’t care about the results of the last election. They are still pushing the culture of death and immorality, still going after the faithful. The Lord help us if they actually win the next election
This Christmas I became involved in a discussion about how bad the world was getting. The gentleman I was talking to felt the world was going to keep changing so we might as well accept it. Accept the increased oppression of religion, the decline in morality, push for unlimited abortion, everything. Obviously I disagreed.
His attitude was you can win so why bother. No matter what you do the world is going to get worse. I felt we might slow the decline at least and save some people. I also feel that based on the Old Testament God might get fed up if we don’t repent. I also know from history that there have been periodic revivals in America.
Yet to me the best reason to fight is that someday I will have to face God. I don’t want to have to tell him that I just sat there and watched the destruction of society and did nothing that I ignored his call to fight with everything I got. To quote Trace Bailin I want to hear Him say well done. If I lose at least I will have fought and stood up for my God.
The presidential election was definitely miraculous. God gave us a miracle in response to the millions of prayers offered by people of faith. Now what are we going to do with it? The war for our country is not over. As we can tell from the demonstrations going on against the government Satan, the media and radicals are not going to give up. They will fight tooth and nail. We can not win this battle politically. We have to fight spiritually as well or we are fighting the enemy unarmed.
People of faith need to pray desperately now for the conversion of our nation. With the Election God has given us only 4 years. We don’t know what will happen in 2020. We don’t know how many Supreme Court justices, President Trump will get to make. it is a real possibility that justices will choose to hang on until another president takes office.
We need to pray for divine guidance for the president, pray that he make the right decisions, pray that he put aside his ego and listen to his advisors and that he pick the right advisors. We need to pray for his conversion.
We need to pray for Congress, that its members put aside their egos, their desire for publicity, to go on to higher office so that they may work for the good of this country. Pray that the parties work together.
Pray that the members of the Democratic Party turned back to their faith, that they experience God’s love and mercy. Pray by name for the conversion of those who have lost their way, the Obamas, the Clintons etc. These are people loved by God and for whom Jesus died. He desires their salvation.
Pray for the conversion of the media. Pray they stop their service of the evil one with the trash they put out.
Pray for revival in this country, that we recognize our own sinfulness and turn back to God. All of us have fallen short of God’s desire for our lives.
Again the war is not over. We desperately need to pray and pray until miracles happen.
Yesterday, November 8, 2016 a miracle happened in this country with the election of Donald Trump as president. I call it a miracle because it is what so many Christians prayed for. Over and over again I receive emails with prayers related to this election. Christians were deeply concern about the Democratic candidates statement that deep-seated religious beliefs must be changed and turned to God praying for her defeat.
She was supported by the mainstream media and outspent her opponent about 2 to 1. Yet she lost a close election in the Electoral College. So many people told me they could not vote for Trump because of his rudeness, appeal to bigotry, divisiveness and his sophomoric treatment of women. Yet they were moved to vote for him. God had to be at work; no question about it.
If prayer can change an election so dramatically what would happen if the same Christians prayed for the conversion of this country? Would God not answer those prayers if we prayed as intensely as long as necessary.
We don’t need the mainstream media. This election proves the power of social media. We can push this idea via the Internet.
Pray in whatever way you feel most comfortable for the conversion of this nation and pass this message on. Post it as often as possible.
When was the last time someone tried to scam you? When was the last time you had to worry about the possibility of someone stealing your identity? When was the last time the murder toll in a major American city was lower than the death toll for American military in war zones? We lived in a crazy time when more Americans get killed in Chicago than in Afghanistan. We have to worry about scams, identity theft and security at home. Our children have to be supervised constantly to protect them. We put up with all kinds of security measures to travel and have to worry about home grown terrorists.
Something is terribly wrong. I grew up in a time when My house was only locked at night. I never had a key and I could go to the library, shopping center, ball park, playground or into the woods without worries of my safety. Even the library was safe. You didn’t have to worry about the kinds of books I would be exposed to. I could walk to the movies and in eighth grade I walked to Sears in downtown Newark, NJ. Don’t you wish you could raise your kids in a world like that?
What happened to that safe world where we didn’t have to worry about our kids being kidnapped or shot in drive-bys or being cheated out of our life savings. What happened to not having to constantly look over our shoulders constantly? What cause that world to break down?
Could it be that you can’t throw out any of the commandments without throwing all of them out. With Roe v. Wade we threw away the commandment, thou shall not kill. Thou shall not commit adultery was deposed of and Planned Parenthood and its allies pushed the pill and the sexual revolution. A lot more than our sexual morals disappeared. All of the morals holding our society disappeared too.
Take a look at America today. Do you really like the way we have to live in fear, the constant stress and danger? Decide for yourself whether we need anyone pushing us further away from God.
Catholics have a long history of enduring persecution. We all know about the early persecutions by the Roman empire. In Islamic states and under communism it is to be expected. But in places like Catholic Spain, France, Mexico and England it was not expected yet hundreds became martyrs in each country.
The people of revolutionary France, Mexico in the 1920’s and Spain in the 1930’s did not expect persecution. They believed it could never happen in their countries. Don’t we believe the same? Religious persecution in this country would never happen. Yet the reality is that Christians have been arrested and prosecuted for standing up for their religious beliefs. Courts have ordered Christian pregnancy centers to provide referrals for abortions. Fines have been imposed on businesses that refuse to participate in same-sex marriages. This may only be the beginning. Planned Parenthood wants us to pay for abortions.
What else they will come up with should worry you. Are you ready to stand up for your faith? Are you willing to endure persecution because it is coming. The Catholic Church is the largest denomination standing against their modern Godless agenda.
The question that all taxpaying voters must answer this election year is whether they are willing to pay for abortions. The Democratic Platform calls for free abortions and the repeal of the Hyde Amendment that bans taxpayer funding of abortions. It is not enough that they demand the right to have an abortion the Democrats now insist that the taxpayers provide free abortions to everyone who wants one. We are not talking about cases where the life of the mother is in danger, there was rape or incest involved. No, they want you to pay for all abortions.
They don’t care about your religious beliefs or religious freedom. Hillary stated in April, 2015 to a women’s group that “deep seated religious beliefs” related to abortion have to be changed. Does that sound like a commitment to follow the First Amendment and protect religious freedom?
Ironically, Mario Cuomo and Tim Kaine among other Catholic Democratic politicians have long claimed to be personally opposed to abortion but refused to impose their religious beliefs on others. Hillary doesn’t have that problem. She is imposing her religious or atheistic values on the American people. She apparently doesn’t care about your soul. Perhaps she doesn’t believe in Hell or God.
She might not but we do. How can we face God if we vote for a candidate whose policies are so heinous? How could we justify electing someone who will force you to participate in the slaughter of countless innocent children, real babies not blobs of tissues?
It is obvious that Hillary believes that we don’t care about our faith. She thinks Christians are so pathetic that she can say and do anything and most Christians will still vote for her. Let’s prove her wrong and show that we have the guts to stand up for Christ.
Remember! A vote for Hillary is a vote to pay for Abortions. Is that what you really want?
