Monthly Letter - October-November 2012

November 30, 2012
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
Several years ago I gave a sermon titled “America is at a Crossroads.” At that time America had just elected a president that was a self professed Muslim. His ideology was totally contrary to the principles of the founding fathers. America was founded on the principles that “all men are created equal and they are endowed by their Creator with certain inaliable rights, among them was life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” In America, if you worked hard, you could become anything you wanted to be. There are many examples of this, i.e., Rockefellers, Carnegie, Vanderbilts, and Henry Ford to name a few.
 
This president initiated an ideology based on the socialistic/communistic system presently being used in European countries such as Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy among others, predominantly among the European Union. I might add that it was used by Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Under this system the government owns everything and “shares the wealth”. I believe the slogan in this presidential campaign was “pay your fair share”. Under this system individual initiative is destroyed. Witness what is happening in the countries mentioned above. I wondered if the American people would embrace this system. And now, after four years, the answer to that question is a resounding YES.
 
In the last four years this president has embraced same sex marriages, abortion, legalizing marijuana, and has engaged in a class warfare that has separated us as a country as never before. All this while campaigning in 2008 for unity and transparency. This year’s presidential election was unprecedented in negative ads filled with lies and slander. Amnesty was granted to illegal aliens in the country. Thus buying the Latino vote. Forty seven million people are presently on food stamps and advertisements have been heard on Mexican radio stations, paid for by our government, telling would be Mexican immigrants how to obtain food stamps. Taxes will be going up on the very companies that provide jobs for Americans. Colleges and universities have taught liberalism, atheism, evolution and introduced the socialistic system to our young people to the point that sixty percent of them voted for this president. Still believing in “Hope and Change.”
 
This president was elected while unemployment hovered around 8% for months. Our GDP (Gross Domestic Product) as a nation has been far below that needed to bring us out of recession, one half of college graduates cannot find meaningful jobs, our national debt is rising, now approximately sixteen trillion dollars, and growing every day. This administration has not passed a national budget in three years. And what is even more alarming, this administration has covered up acts that could be considered treasonable if all the facts were known. To stop the investigation into the “Fast and Furious” fiasco the president invoked “executive privilege.” On September 11, 2012 our Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by a known terrorist group while being watched in real time by “someone” in the state department. No one will accept responsibility! Requests for increased security, months in advance, were ignored and nothing was done to prevent the murder of these four Americans while help was within striking distance. The president would not address the subject, only to say, “it is under investigation.” The election was too important. On November 1, 2012 one of our American drones was fired on by Iran in international airspace, which is considered an act of war. This incident was not made known until after the election. And, nothing has been done about that either. Iran is continuing its quest to obtain a nuclear weapon. Everyone knows if Iran becomes nuclear it will attack Israel and then the U.S. They have told us that is their goal.
 
Yes, my friends, we reached a crossroads in 2008 and it is now clear what road we took. We took the path Satan the Devil has been pandering for nearly 6,000 years. Satan has succeeded in turning our nation from God and worshiping the “god of this world.” And, of course, that is him. (2 Cor. 4:4). This election proved that over 50% of the voting population embraced policies contrary to God’s Word. What is the result? Read Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 for the answer. The conclusion of the matter is that Christ will have to intervene in world affairs or mankind will destroy itself. (Mat. 24:21-22). I personally believe that will not be too far off in the future. We have been telling you for years to “get your spiritual house in order!” Of course, most will ignore that warning, but all God requires of us is to warn you. The blood will not be on our heads. Read Ezekiel, chapter 33. Bible prophecy states that the descendants of ancient Israel—English speaking peoples— because they have rejected their God, will face untold miseries in the “latter days” (Mat. 24:21-22). Christ told us to “Watch and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things…” (Luke 21:36). Are you praying?

My friends, as always, I extend the Church’s thanks and appreciate to all of you who support this Work of God by your prayers, tithes and offerings. Without your support we could not provide the spiritual materials needed to “feed the flock,” and “preach the gospel.”
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
