CLEVERLY DONE!

 

{{Twas the month before Christmas, When all through our land, Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand.
Why the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas – no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say; December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday’.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit; Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod; Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa, In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down; At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was nowhere to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears, You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter; To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith; Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded; The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’; Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say; Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet MERRY CHRISTMAS. Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!}}  

 

 Cleverly done is exactly right and I might add, cute too! BUT, is this ‘plea’ coming from our God and Father? Is this what Father wants us to be occupied with, when He knows that this celebration is the work of Satan from its beginning? Google it saints! Christmas is not that old. Even in America, there was a time when it was against the law to sing Christmas carols.

 

 Satan knows the true state of the Body of Christ better than most, if not all, Christians. Satan knows that his trickery has made the Body of Christ a greater testimony to his world and its ways than it does to The Christ they claim to know and love. Satan’s trickery has also made saints of God better ambassadors of Earth than of Heaven.

 

 On the other hand, most professing Christians are in total ignorance; thinking that they are doing exactly what Father wants them to do. Sadly, too many of those who profess to know Lord Jesus do not possess Him, which makes their ignorance understandable.

 

 Even more sadly, far too many saints who do possess Lord Jesus are still “milk of the Word” sucking babies, who don’t know the Holy Spirit from emotion.

 

They are oblivious to the exceeding deceitfulness and desperate wickedness of the satanic human nature within them.

 

 They are just as oblivious to the power of Father’s Holy Spirit within them to overcome their satanic human nature. So, they quench and grieve Father’s Holy Spirit every day.

 

 They think and say that their trust is in Lord Jesus, but, their actions, loyalty and devotion says that their trust is in themselves and the man they call “pastor” or some other prideful title; and their devotion and loyalty is to ‘the man’ and the religious organized business that he oversees.

 

 It amazes me, how many of us are willing to receive and pass on cleverly written sayings in email, that do little to nothing for the purposes of God our Father; even to the point of making people feel guilty if they don’t pass it on.

 

 I wonder how many of these same saints would be willing to  write to other saints  and urgently ask and exhort them to urgently contend for and defend our faith, which was once for all handed down to the foundation saints of old.

 

Surely, it does not take a genius or deep thinker, to see that “church” today looks absolutely nothing like “church” in the Bible; neither does the saints of God today look anything like New Covenant saints in the Bible.

 

 Is this not a greater cause worthy of fighting for?
