As you know I am a pastor and evangelist, not a politician or political activist. Glory to God! However, we have all been called to be a witness and to present our testimony to all people and all nations. I also believe it is our duty to be the salt, light and voice to our generation.
I am often asked about issues were facing today and where should we stand regarding them. I am also directly asked what my beliefs and opinions are concerning what's going on in our world today. I'm happy to tell all my major belief. My only disclosure is that it's rather boring, as I look to what God has to say and mirror Him.
First, let me share my heart with you and some of my influences. Obviously my all time hero is Jesus Christ, followed by the Disciples of Jesus. My more recent influencers are Martin Luther and Reverend Martin Luther King for their stance. They were persecuted for their stand. They were banished or killed for their stand. There stand was the love for Jesus, God's Word and People. Likewise, let's follow their example. It's time to make our voice be heard. The gospel says to preach from the rooftops, to be the light on a hill. My beliefs are:
I believe in Jesus Christ is the only way, truth and the light.
I believe in the Holy Bible, Word of God and Word of faith.
I believe in the life, death, resurrection and eternal life in Christ Jesus.
I believe in healing, miracles and the Gifts are for today.
I believe speaking in tongues is the primary evidence of receiving the Baptism of Holy Spirit and Fire promised by God, given to us by Jesus Christ.
I believe Christians should be the light, salt and the voice of righteousness in ministry, but more importantly secularly throughout educational, entertainment, economics, industrial, scientific, commercial, legal, political and judicial positions throughout our world.
I do NOT believe or stand for any kind of our constitutional freedom to speak hate or participate in any form of bigotry, racism, division, lying, elitism, prejudice, profiling, politics, abortion, infanticide (lawful abortion of full term babies), inequality (regarding position and wages), LGBTQIA, same sex marriage, pornography, legal prostitution, divorce, socialism, religion, new age, illicit drugs or fornication.
Many have asked me how I feel about guns. Well, let me answer the question. I believe in background checks, education, testing, licensing and registration PRIOR to owning guns (similar to our driving laws). Godly wisdom.
It's time for pastors to be relevant, stand up and be a voice. I hope I have brought inspiration, exhortation and encouragement to you to step out and let your world know what Christians stand for, and make your light shine to all men. Arise sleeper. Let our voice be fixed upon Jesus in unity, repentance and prayer ushering revival!!!
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising" Isaiah 60:1-3
Who else will arise and shine? Who will be Jesus' voice for our present generation? Let's not allow the voice of evil to drown out the good news gospel of faith, hope and love. When evil speaks up, we the righteous must stand up against evil by communicating God's plan to others with grace, diligence and determination.
It's time to arise, shine, for your light has come.
Love you and God richly bless you,
