Blow the trumpet!
"...Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul." - Ezekiel 33:2-5 KJV
Let us sound the trumpet loud and clear... Danger that should strike holy fear into the very heart of God's people is at the door. I am referring to the wickedness of those in high places who push, shove and force their agenda upon the backs of hard working taxpayers in America. They think their thick boot heels can crush the Spirit of God's people, and for good measure they want to make law that which can never be right or normal on God's earth.
The sodomite agenda is marching steadily on in Illinois with the recent civil unions legislation passed by the Illinois General Assembly. As a wife, mother, grandmother, citizen, taxpayer and homeowner in Illinois, I have an interest and voice in the laws of this state that I refuse to let be denied me.
Now is the time to speak and stand for righteousness, and may God give all of His people the boldness and grace to do this. We can go back to making our homes and churches comfortable when this present danger has been averted and driven back into the closet. Your children and grand children's future is depending upon you.
Now is the time to sound the alarm and tell others what God says about wickedness and how sodomy defiles the land.
Now is the time to declare with all your being that Christ rules this nation and His Law is good, holy and right. It is not to be ashamed of, nor should we become discouraged at those who say God's Law is not to be the standard and rule for life. Let us be the ones to seek His face through prayer, repentance, and a renewed commitment to press the crown rights of King Jesus in all areas of life.
How can Christian ladies help sound the alarm and promote righteousness?
First of all, don't neglect your family. Train up your children in the ways of the Lord. Withdraw them from the government schools and teach them what God's Word says.
Secondly, encourage and help those men who will confront evil with the Word of God.
Thirdly, talk to your neighbors and friends about God's Word and show them what is right and true as found in Scripture.
Fourthly, pick up your pen (or keyboard) and begin writing letters to the editor and editorials. If the news organizations won't publish them, become a self-publisher by starting a blog and creating your own e-list.
And lastly, but not least - PRAY as though your life and the lives of your children depend upon it... Because they really do.
May God grant each reader of this editorial a renewed sense of purpose and urgency to promote His kingdom above all others. May you Seek Him as your only shelter in the storm sure to follow. But above all, don't stop blowing the trumpet until all is clear on the horizon. Amen.
