Burning the American Flag Should be an Act of Treason

usflags_600x248

In my opinion, as a Christian, the burning of the American Flag should be counted as an act of treason. When one burns our flag they are making the statement that they are against our country and everything it stands for.   At the present time, in the name of freedom of speech, our country has allowed people to do this.   However, I believe flag burning should be considered as a crime, because it is a statement of renouncing our country’s beliefs and laws. It is also an act of desecration against the sacrifices of the many men and women who gave their lives and spilled their blood to protect our freedoms for which that flag stands!  Now I believe in the rights and freedom of our populace to be able to oppose certain things, such as we have done in times past, like slavery; but, burning our flag to me is opposing our entire country’s belief system because the flag represents all we are as a nation. Even the words of our national anthem declare what we believe.  I believe in free speech, but free speech does have its limits and boundaries.   What are these boundaries?  They are the laws and beliefs that our nation has established since the founding fathers wrote out the constitution and defined what, we as a nation, would corporately believe and support.   It also includes the laws that we have passed in our nation’s capital that should be upheld.

When people defy these laws there is also a penalty that goes with that defiance.  What has happened in our country, in many areas, is that we have good laws on the books, but we have not enforced them.   This is one reason we are having so many problems with illegal immigration.  The laws associated with immigration have been violated for years and the lawbreakers were not held accountable on both sides of this issue.  The illegal immigrant who was allowed to stay here and was given benefits of our legal citizens, along with the corporations and businesses who hired them for cheap labor, are both guilty of breaking the law. Guilty as well, are the legal authorities and agencies who allowed both parties to get by with doing this.   If businesses had not hired the illegals, there would be no jobs for them in this nation, so those people who did the hiring are guilty of not keeping the law, just as the immigrants are guilty of coming here illegally.  This has created enormous problems for all of our citizens.  The root problem is one of dishonesty and lawlessness, plus the irresponsibility of officials who failed to enforce our laws.  Motives on both sides were not right, but both were wrong.

Pray for Our Nation and Vote for Our Leaders
Fall 2016

By Betty Miller

We have diligently been praying about the upcoming elections, that we, as a nation, will elect the right person who will hold the office of the president of the United States. We are also praying that we will elect good senators and representatives to rule over us, as well. We know all Christians, have been praying as well. Many believers are divided and confused about the choices before us. As Christians, we should care about character, the Supreme Court, and social issues like abortion and traditional marriage and also the future of our nation. Yet, the Lord has not made it easy this time for us to be at peace about our vote. There are no easy answers. The Bible says as long as we are in this earth, we see through a glass darkly, so we are faced with the choice between two flawed candidates for the presidency. Regardless of the outcome, we are committed to honoring and praying for whichever leaders get elected across the board because the Bible tells us we are to honor the offices of our leaders. The next president will face enormous challenges and problems and will need our support and prayers. We are admonished in the Word of God to pray for them, as God wants us to have leaders that will make decisions that will allow us to live quiet and peaceable lives in an environment of godliness and honesty according to the scripture below:

1 Timothy 2:1-5
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

What Will the Next President Do?

Months ago, I started praying about the presidential elections. I even asked the Lord to show me who the new president would be, as I know He has revealed the future to some of His prophets and people. I told the Lord I would like to know since I have had such a burden to pray about this matter. My burden came with a lot of weeping and crying over our nation and the upcoming elections and over the spirit of division that is in our land. I have an intercessory prayer burden and maybe I just have a Jeremiah anointing on me right now, as Jeremiah was known as “the weeping prophet.” Anyway, God did not reveal to me who the next president would be, but rather led me to a scripture in Jeremiah and began speaking to me about what the next president would do. Here was the scripture He spoke to my heart:

Jeremiah 1:10 “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.”

Here is what He revealed to me about the correlation of this scripture and the office of the presidency of which either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will fill. We are going to have one of these people as our next president and one of them will be “set over the nations” for a very unusual purpose.

With So Much Confusion How Can We Know the Truth?

Overcoming Confusion, Knowing Truth

By Betty Miller

At the present time there is no lack of confusing things that are going on in the world and this includes the Christian world. There seems to be no end of information that is available, as we are being bombarded by all kinds of media influences from so many different sources including the Internet, TV, radio, books, movies and mobile devices. Knowledge is a good thing if it comes from a source of truth, but today, much of what we are receiving is misinformation that is based on individual opinions, lies from immoral people and even “out and out” Satanic messages and influences. No wonder so many people are so confused.

The Internet is filled with ungodly confusing information that is put forth by different kinds of people who fall into various categories. Some are:

  1. Well-meaning people that are deceived
  2. Prideful people that want to be heard
  3. False prophets spreading deception
  4. Satanists spreading occultism

Other people are truly called by God to minister on the Internet and have been commissioned to bring a true message from God to the world. We received that call years ago when the Lord told us to bring His light to a dark place. Back in 1994 the Internet was mostly used by pornographers. That has now changed, as God’s people have stepped up and used the Internet to minister to others. Read the Miller’s testimony at: http://bibleresources.org/about-us/the-millers/

We must ask God to bring us the messages we need to hear and ask Him to lead us into all truth. However, we must be very careful on the Internet, as the devil is using it to deceive people all over the world. Parents, you must supervise your children’s mobile Internet devices so you do not lose them to the enemy. If we read something that brings confusion to our minds, wisdom would dictate that we not go there, nor allow our children access either. The Internet cannot sin; however, people that use it do and there is much evil in the world right now.

“Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.” 2 Timothy 2:7

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33

God’s Word is Truth (Without It, We Perish)

The Bible talks about a time such as this, and also furnishes us true knowledge so that we can overcome the things that are bringing confusion in our lives. The Word of God is really the only source of truth, so if we want the truth, we must seek Jesus, Who is truth, and study the Bible which holds God’s written truths.
