A lecture and Sermon by Rev. James Harrison Nixon
By now we have all heard of Kim Davis, to be honest I wish I didn’t even write her name down, she does not speak of the Gospel of Jesus; which is that of love. Yet the real attack on Christians in America is being led by a Wisconsin group called the Freedom from Religion Foundation, they are bullying schools and cities into doing what they want. They file lawsuits pressure cities into doing what they want in fear of a backlash from people on the internet that do not even live in that city. This year alone we have seen a Principal fired for leading prayer at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting (Meriwether County Georgia) a school system sued for football players and a couch voluntarily being baptized (Carroll County Georgia) a 25 year Christmas tradition School Choir tradition brought to a holt in Oregon and countless other incidences in between. Now why would they fight Christians yet allow other religious groups like Satanist and Islamist to practice freely? Simple it is the work of Satan; in Matthew 24 we are warned about this in the final days. We are told that we will be hated and delivered into the courts.
Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another.
(Matthew 24:9-10 ASV)
We are seeing this now; people are using an opinion made by a Justice of the Supreme Court in the 60’s to get away with this. It is a clear case of people believing something that is not so, if we had a law of Separation of Church and State then on our money we could not have a national motto of “In God We Trust” it would contradict and laws cannot be contradictory of one another. We are under attack in the United States as Christians yet we have been focused on the wrong attacks; we have allowed the true attackers to keep gaining power unchecked while placing those that are harmful to the teaching of God on a pedestal. Again that is something we are warned against by Jesus, we are warned of false teachers and doctrines yet many are falling for it.
And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray. And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold.
(Matthew 24:11-12 ASV)
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
(Matthew 24:24 ASV)
It is sad that many of us do not want to question what is being preached today, remember family if people did not question William Tyndale would have never translated the bible into English. He risked imprisonment to bring the Bible to the common English speaking person, translating directly from the Greek New testament to give an accurate translation. Most of which he did while he was in prison for doing just that, at the time it was illegal for anyone other than preachers to read bible. People risk their lives around the world either by death or imprisonment for the name of Jesus, yet in the country that claims it is “One Nation Under God” we have forgotten just that. Jesus suffered for our sins, Jesus endured torment for those of his time the past and the now. We claim to follow him yet we are turning over like dogs obeying our masters at the hands of these secular groups. Remember those that deny Jesus are worse than those that never knew him
For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in his own glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels.
(Luke 9:26 ASV)
So why should we keep allowing this to happen? Why should we be the beaten dogs? The laws that they try to hide behind protect us, they give Christians a freedom of Religious practice. We are not to be trapped inside of a building, a church is not a building but the body of Christ, the unity of those who believe and are worship. The Communist Revolution started and when they gained power they banned religion, or they controlled the church to the point it was watered down and not filled with any Gospel truth. It was by the work of men like Watchmen Nee and Witness Lee that the true message and establishment of home churches helped bring true Christianity to China. Yet in the United States we are seeing less true Churches and more statues churches that choose to look the other way and gain followers on social media than followers of Jesus, we are becoming a lukewarm nation.
So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
(Revelation 3:16 ASV)
