"Nothing is too difficult for the Lord!" (Luke 1:37) And Psalm 23 says "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." Therefore I KNOW today is going to be another GREAT Day ENJOYING God!! Wish I had known sooner such a thing could be had---daily FRIENDSHIP with Jesus (God)!

"Nothing is too difficult for the Lord!" (Luke 1:37)
Jesus Loves YOU!!
REMOVE Rep John Boehner! REPLACE him with a righteous person! Soteria Allen 1-5-14
IMPORTANT for Believers to be informed. We need to be able to PRAY based on accurate information regarding, among other things, important upcoming events in our government, to be able to "STAND steadfast against the spiritual forces of darkness" that influence and cause the lying, evil-doing, hypocrisy and cruelty of ignorant people to do things Christians would never dream of doing! (Ephesians 6:10-18)
As the Bible says "our battle is NOT against flesh and blood." For an excellent example exposing the devil, consider: 'who is the Allah that Jihadists are influenced by, even evilly controlled by? But it is not just Islamists who are so despicably deceived!
People need to know Jesus, the TRUE GOD, and His Word (Bible) in order to BE ABLE to stand against the wiles of the enemy! (Ephesians 6:10-18; Romans 12:2)
And it is very important to know that God tells us in His Word:
“For lack of knowledge My people are destroyed!” (Hosea 4:6)
Particularly what God has to say in His Word.
America and all the world are suffering very much from that very thing right now.
But REVERSING what caused our problems WILL BRING BACK the Love, Peace, Joy and Prosperity to America and anywhere else the Word of God is known and practiced. HURRAY!!
“Nothing is too difficult for the Lord!!” (Luke 1:37) who LOVES us all!!
Also, often God calls us to do more than just the most important thing, that being PRAYER, such as signing online petitions to our elected officials to help them know what we think about issues and about certain relevant people; and that we are behind them and grateful when they do right. God may have us give money to certain groups such as Tea Party groups, Pro-Life groups, or to specific godly candidates, etc. Offer ourselves to help godly candidates or run ourselves for local, or higher, governmental positions. .
"When the RIGHTEOUS are in the authority, the people REJOICE; but when the UNGODLY (or wicked) are in the rule, the people MOURN!!" (Proverbs 29:2)
CHRISTIANS IN THE GOVERNMENT IS VERY IMPORTANT!!
Besides praising and encouraging people, including “eating and drinking with sinners” Jesus spoke publicly against ‘evil doing’. And also John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul, and many prophets (eg, Daniel) and other godly men in the Old and New Testament, spoke up publicly against those doing wrong (not minor things) in government at the time.
Government, a creation of God, is awesome WHEN the "righteous are in the rule'!
People who are 'under God' are people who pray and spend time in God's Word and gladly rule in accordance with God's will. But, "when the ungodly are in authority, the people mourn!!" (Proverbs 29:2) Tyranny and cruelty are NOT of God!!
It is true, government was and is established by God. As it says in Romans 13:3-4,6 “For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good.”
But ungodly, evil men are not serving God---not even close; and therefore ARE NOT MINISTERS or SERVANTS OF GOD!! Shown throughout the Bible!
Just as those who crucified Jesus and cruelly killed many of the prophets before Him, were, in their ignorance, of the Devil (John 8:44) and were continually opposing God, evil and hostile toward Him and the Word of God; so are many (NOT ALL!!!) who are in authority in the US Government, and in governments in other countries today!! I believe God wants His people to work with Him to bring HIS BEAUTIFUL RULE all over the world!! It takes having the RIGHTEOUS IN AUTHORITY!! Christians!!
"When the righteous are in authority, the people (even the criminals and those in prison are much better off) REJOICE!! :) YEAH!!
As a young believer I wrongly thought for years, even very strongly believed, Christians are never to go against or even speak against anyone in authority. But the Bible shows that is a LIE of the Devil himself!! That belief clearly OPPOSES GOD'S WORD! (I didn't know, of course)
It is NOT of GOD to refuse to, or decline from, speaking against evil! And also to not speak to and/or not speak about those who do evil, particularly if they are in a ruling (ruling over people!!) position. Rather, it is a LIE of the DEVIL, so he can cruelty rule INSTEAD of God!! Communism, Nazism, Islam, (Marxism, socialism=communism) or any anti-TRUE GOD and/or Bible 'ism'!! It's really all anti-humans!
It is the DEVIL ('Allah') who DECEIVES people into 'Not speaking against Muhammad, Allah, the Koran, or Sharia Law! There was no speaking (dissent!!) against Hitler, Stalin, Lenin and other evil rulers when they got in authority (Nazism, Communism) in the past!
It is the SAME of evilly deceived leaders of our day!!
For example, 'IS IT UN-CHRISTIAN' to clearly SPEAK UP, loudly QUESTION things such as Obama's very questionable, shown to be fraudulent by expert analysis, Birth Certificate; proven fraudulent SS#; false school records, passport; or to ASK FOR PROOF of whether he is even a US Citizenship?
Is it UnChristian to PUBLICLY QUESTION MANY OTHER ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL and (according to the Bible, God's Word) IMMORAL RULINGS and LAWS of OBAMA'S and to POINT OUT and PUBLICALLY QUESTIONTHOSE HELPING HIM (complicit!)?
Is it UnChristian to PUBLICLY DISAGREE WITH those who are right there in our government, being those who CAN DIRECTLY make a powerful difference, such as Speaker of the House, Rep JOHN BOEHNER (Republican, but consistently CONTRARY to the Republican Platform voted on at every Republican Convention! 'Republican In Name Only'=RHINO)? Isn't that being COMPLICIT with evil??
In Representative John Boehner's case, it is much worse than not speaking up! Many times he went AGAINST the RIGHTEOUS in the Republican Party and the righteous outside of government crying out for their legislators to do the simple moral and legal thing and NOT FUND the IMMORAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ILLEGAL Rulings and Laws of unscrupulous Democrats and, or course, Obama himself!!
As Speaker of the House, Rep John Boehner had the POWER to PUT A STOP TO or else unscrupulously BE COMPLICIT WITH (Very Needed for Obama and the immoral, illegal laws and rulings to succeed!) EVIL, to the uttermost!!
As Christians, I believe God wants us to BRING CHARGES against the specific WRONGS and the specific people in government doing them, as Jesus did the Jewish Leaders (they included church and civil government):
Matthew 23:26-28 (NASB)
26 ”You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.28 So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”
Jesus was pointing to specific 'deceptions they had' and their cruel governing of the people---what they themselves would not do. Jesus wasn't name calling or 'attacking the person' without a specific clear cause or issue.
The same with John the baptist speaking out against King Herod's adultery. John got arrested, imprisoned and then beheaded for it, but obeying God is never a waste or failure, regardless of the immediate results.
King Herod, in his affair with his brother's wife and also in arresting John and killing John for speaking against him,was in a high position of government, but HE WAS NOT A SERVANT OF GOD!! (Maybe 'Allah's')
The TRUE GOD, JESUS, the Risen Christ, the Most High God is NOT like that!! Hallelujah!!
When and wherever Christians are in authority, then there can be Freedom of Religion!! Our Founding Fathers knew Freedom of Religion, and also close to it, Freedom of Speech, were God-given rights. The US Declaration of Independence states “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness...”
Bill of Rights - First 10 Amendments to the US Constitution:
1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or of the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
“Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and of citizens...Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?” --- George Washington’s Farewell Address
They also knew even if 'Freedom of Religion' allowed for false religions and false beliefs, that the character and lives of those who followed false religions could not compare to the excellence in morality, love, joy and clarity of truth that is apparent in every Christian who has a close walk with the True God, Jesus!!
IT CAN'T COME CLOSE!!
The problem then?? EVIL DOERS WINNING (or stealing) positions of authority in the US Government is BY DEFAULT!!
“My people are destroyed for lack of (esp Bible) knowledge!” (Hosea 4:6)
1. Christians not active in politics, often not even minimally or else just hardly, because either they believe wrongly (“lack of knowledge”) that “politics is dirty” therefore Christians should not be involved in it; a LIE of the Devil!! It gets dirty because Christians aren't in the ‘ruling over people’ positions---DIRTY because the UNGODLY are!! BUT even then, throughout the Bible, when things got corrupt and ugly,God has consistently led the righteous to get involved in politics, even enduring persecution for taking a stand for what was right.(Moses, Daniel, 3 Hebrew boys...)
2. Another big LIE of Satan's is “If it is the Gospel (tell about Jesus and how people can know Him) that greatly changes people for the GOOD, become moral and loving, then why not spend all our time in one way or another working to reach people with the Good News so that they can have a life of Love, Peace & Joy (& Heaven after this life) by giving their lives totally to Jesus, enjoying His Friendship and Lordship over them everyday. NO!!!! Also take time for government and politics! Because there is a Devil who is EVER WORKING to get the ungodly
('deceived by the devil' into becoming gradually more and more corrupt and wicked, and be very deceiving people; more and more controlled by the devil (esp with drugs/alcohol)---not having the Light of God and His Word that the Christian has!!)
into high positions all over the world, so he can very deceptively and cruelly rule man INSTEAD OF GOD!!
(I used to believe both of the above, along with my good Bible-believing Christian church, for years! Lack of knowledge!)
Throughout, the Bible shows both of the beliefs about Christians supposedly are not to be in politics; or else, hardly at all involved in politics, to not be true. A really good exposing of the devil, and his extremely clever deceit, attempting to rule man instead of God,besides Adam and Eve being deceived out of their AUTHORITY (by being 'under God') by the deceit of the lying devil (inhabited a snake) was in Jesus time on the Earth, “tempted by Satan out in the wilderness while Jesus was alone with God (indivisible triune God) in prayer and fasting 40 days, in preparation for His 3 year public ministry.” The devil tried to deceive Jesus, having given up His God abilities to become the Son of God, born from above, and living on Earth among men for His IMPORTANT work of Redemption of all mankind, but also as an example to us, how people can live AFTER (impossible while yet unbelievers) giving their lives to God (Jesus) which results in a supernatural experience called born-again. Immediate 'Light On', as well as able to experience daily friendship with God, having Him right within!! YEAH!!
One of the temptations the utterly evil devil (hates God and all good!!) brought against Jesus, to trick Him into sinning, was to cause a vision of Jesus seeing all the kingdoms of the world and telling Jesus (usually puts some truth in his LIES!) that he was controlling the people (esp by controlling their rulers!) and that he would let them go, free to be ruled by the Lord Jesus, if “Jesus would bow down and worship him.”
Like the other temptations to deceive Jesus (utterly EVIL!! the devil has no right to do such a thing!) into sinning, playing on His love and compassion for people, it caused a very difficult time for Jesus, as the Bible shows. But by the Holy Spirit, Jesus immediately came out with the Word of God (Bible) also our weapon against the enemy, and quoted Scripture against the devil, declaring,
“Thou shalt (speaking of men (Himself), not demons) revere the Lord thy God, and serve Him, and shalt swear by His name.” (Deuteronomy 6:13)
Declaring this scripture provided, for one thing, the Truth for Jesus, so He didn't get deceived and tricked by the devil! Also, the Word of God declared in Faith, (Bible is different than any other book) causes Almighty God POWER to go Mightily against the forces of Darkness (demons) as we stand and do not give in or give up, however long it takes! Jesus RESISTED the Devil with the Word of God, and eventually, Satan had to flee!
We who are born-again (available for all!! Often called 'the Gospel' ), called Christians, have the same 'devil running off' ability, by the Word of God, that Jesus had!! HURRAY!!
But, of course, Christians need to know what they got when they became born-again (ie, Believers or Christians). Read John 10:10 It’s GOOD!!
Also, suffering the “lacking knowledge” exists still quite a bit regarding the fact that we really do have an enemy! The devil is not just something fictitious, nor is he harmless, or irrelevant! 1 Peter 5:8 says that we are to be “Alert, sober ('sober' in regard to the enemy! Not fearful, but also, we do need to be aware of him and know what to do, just as Jesus did!) “Be alert, sober, for your adversary, the devil, is prowling about as a roaring ('roar' indicates 'hungry', ready to pounce!) lion seeking whomever he can devour (consume, as in 'getting total control of'!)!! “Resist it, STEADFAST in your faith (faith comes from meditating on the Word of God; just as Jesus had gotten it into His heart, and the Holy Spirit brought the scriptures to His remembrance).”
Yes, very important for Christians to know:
“When the righteous are in authority, the people REJOICE; but when the ungodly (wicked) rule, the people MOURN!” (Proverbs 29:2)
Please PRAY for the REMOVAL of Representative John Boehner from his position as Speaker of the House and also from government, and also that charges brought against him for his complicity with Obama and others in causing much great loss and great pain to MANY people in America!! And throughout the world!!
And please call or email your Representative, (and as many of them as you can) asking him/them to vote to have Rep John Boehner REPLACED as Speaker of the House when the Republicans in the House vote on this Tuesday, Jan 6, 2014.
Representative Louis Gohmert has made it known he is interested in filling that position. He is a very caring beautiful person, conservative, and an openly Christian man from Texas; which is also my home state. There was at least one other man, I don't remember his name, who also offered to be up to be voted on to take Boehner's place Tuesday, Jan 6,
I think you know this is VERY, VERY IMPORTANT! It has much to do with us succeeding in getting America back on the righteous foundation that it was begun on and has operated from for many years! Legally that is still America’s foundation, but the Constitution and Laws are more and more being evilly twisted and used wrongly, as well as ignored when desired, by ungodly and evil people in office!
The people of America have been, especially with the current administration, gradually, and more and more speedily, racing out of control toward a total, cruel dictatorship for their government, which always robs people of their God-given rights! Communism, Islam, Globalism, etc (often disguised with nice terms) are very cruel.
And the PEOPLE MOURN!! Tyranny is NOT enjoyed by anyone, including those ruling!!
With God, as He did for the lad David against the Giant Goliath (and a vicious army right behind him!) about to enslave Israel, VICTORY can be a SURE THING!! Hallelujah!!
With Jesus' Compassion 4 America! (& the world!!)
Love, Soteria Allen (& Jesus!!)
