'for such a time as this'

"...and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"

(The Book of Esther 4:14C, KJV)

Dear Friends,

The famous 19th century Dutch theologian and Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Abraham Kuyper, is quoted as saying: "When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battle is your calling, and peace has become your sin; you must, at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith."

I believe we are living in such a time that we need to lay all our convictions bare and fight with all the fire of our faith for a Christian Republic. Just one look at the headlines in the news should be enough to convince even the most hardened skeptic that our nation is in dire straits.

Even those who are not of the Christian faith must admit that the violence and injustice being perpetrated against American citizens is wrong. The streets of America are no longer safe. Totally depraved men and women prey upon children to fulfill their perverted desires, which includes sexual abuse and murder.

Homosexuals, whom the Bible refers to as sodomites, flaunt their unnatural desires in the faces of American citizens through perverted movies, television shows, and sexual parades. They have not only come out of the closet, they demand that we watch them simulate their vile sex acts on parade floats. They have no shame.

The headlines of today remind me of Founding Father Patrick Henry's words in the speech "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death" first spoken on March 23,1775:

" is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it."

I believe that we can no longer shut our eyes to the truth that something is terribly wrong with America. We must do as Patrick Henry advised and seek to know the whole truth of what is happening to our country and then provide for it.

I made this covenant with the Christian Constitutionalists of the Constitution Party on November 8 of 2004:

I am totally committed to a vigilant and proactive approach to restoring our republic to the jurisprudence of its Biblical foundation.

I, Angela Wittman, make this covenant before you, the Christian Constitutionalists of the Constitution Party, and before the KING of all nations, Jesus Christ, with the full acknowledgment that a Covenanter will go to their grave willingly before breaking covenant with Lord Jesus and the Brethren.

A promise made is a promise I will keep.

When I made this covenant I did not know the LORD would direct my steps outside of the Constitution Party of which I had been an officer from May of 2001 until my resignation of January 2005 and into the American Heritage Party. (1) While I am still honoring my covenant, I am doing it independent of the Constitution Party.

I implore those of you reading this to investigate our national history, especially the Colonial period when the Puritans first founded our nation. You will see that our founding documents were for the most part written by Christian men who believed in God's law as the standard for civil government. Men, women and children shed their blood to settle this untamed land for the glory of God. And we have through apathy and negligence allowed the ungodly to spit in our God's face with their violence and immorality.

I pray it is not too late for America to repent... Please, come let us join together with fasting and prayer asking for God's forgiveness. Then let us put aside our differences and seek to make this an explicitly Christian nation with a return to God's law as the standard and a national constitutional amendment that will acknowledge Christ as LORD as advocated by the National Reform Association since 1864.

Kent State, the Summer of 1970 and the Grace of God

  Me in 1975 - Seeking God. Al Baker recently wrote an article on the tragedy of the Kent State demonstrations and the killing of four students in May of 1970:  Four Dead in Ohio ( FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS )  . I remember being 12 years-old at the time this happened and the disagreement between my father (a full-time Air National Guardsman) and myself. I could see that he was pained over the event, but he defended the soldiers who fired on the students and I was shocked at his defense of their actions. I also remember that my friends and I embraced the rebellious culture of the time and soon found ourselves acting like our "heroes;" while we were only in our early teens we became somewhat jaded and mistrusted those in authority. By the time I turned 17 years-old, I began to have a yearning in my heart to become a Christian - I wanted to become a new creation, but I didn't know how. (As a child I remember watching televangelists and reciting the "sinner's praye

Is Satan Real? Here's My Story.

Is Satan real? I think so and here's my story of a frightening experience that drove me straight toward  Christ. My story begins in the early 1970's while visiting the Wisconsin Dells area with my parents, I had brought a friend on vacation with us and she and I decided to walk around the local town square while my parents shopped for food and other items for our two week camping trip at Castle Rock Lake .  Historic Juneau County Courthouse on the town square in Mauston, WI Image Source:  Juneau County Courthouse - Juneau County Courthouse - Wikipedia My friend and I were both in our early teens; but we looked older. So, we were quite flattered when some local teenaged boys sitting on the lawn of the Courthouse noticed us, and we stopped to talk to them. We told them we were from Missouri and would be camping at Castle Rock Lake for the next couple of weeks.  Source:  Castle Rock - Juneau County Government ( I explained that my dad was in the Missouri Air National Guard

Dementia - Seeing through a glass darkly....

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  ~1Corinthians 13.12 KJV ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I came across this article by Dr. Barry York written in 2014 and posted at Gentle Reformation , which I never read until today. If you have a parent/spouse/friend etc. with dementia and you aren't certain of their salvation, please read this. I think you will find it encouraging. It gives me great hope as my father suffered from dementia before his death earlier this year and who assured me he had asked the Lord for forgiveness while being ill. Salvation in a Dementia Ward Walking down the long hospital hallway, I approached the room in the emergency area where they had told me she would be found. As I came near the door, I found a security guard sitting there. He looked at me with sympathy as I identified myself and, with a warning and sad shaking of his head, gave me permission to enter.
