even a smattering of Bible knowledge
Most people with even a smattering of Bible knowledge know about the parable of the Good Samaritan or have at least heard the term. Some hospitals even have statues of the good samaritan.
Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
In this parable there was a decent ending. The third person, the good samaritan, decided to help out; the one who was beaten and robbed received mercy at the samaritan’s hands.
But what if there had been another ending? What if the good samaritan was a “bad” samaritan that day and also walked on and did not bother to help? What then?
Life is a continual test and we are always challenged in one way or another as to what we will do with what is presented to us. God watches and we reap what we sow.
Ecclesiastes 5:8 If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.
Here is an opportunity to be a good samaritan for the United States, and also for the nation in which you reside which might have similar problems.
The United States, and many sovereign nations, have been beaten and robbed.
You can read, understand, and pass on this information. You can attend this summit.
I really try to stay out of the second coming prophetic realm because I feel the way it is preached has made a lot of complacent, “why do I care,” “why should I bother,” “why should I fight because I’m going to take flight” attitude.
However in this case, all I will say is that you are still here, on the earth, and what happens on the earth has consequences. Be careful what you choose because God will let you experience the effects of your choices.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
What is iniquity? It is the refusal to submit our wills to our Father which art in heaven. It is what operated in satan which contributed to his fall from being Lucifer, the light-bearer, to being renamed the serpent, satan, devil, serpent, Beelzebub. This fallen created being named the serpent showed up in the garden of Eden and tempted Adam and Eve to their fall from their appointed place in God.
[emphasis added below]
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.
23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the Lord of hosts.
24 The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.
27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
This is not a popular viewpoint. It is more popular to sit back and say that we don’t need to do anything, we don’t need to vote, we don’t need to bother with politics, and that Jesus will take care of everything in the Second Coming. All I can say is that Jesus is not yet fully here, except in the presence of his people and that his people have been given the power and authority and task to obey him. And I would conjecture, or strongly believe, that the freemasons and satanists and globalists who want to control things are more than happy for the Christians to sit at home and be complacent because they have been taught well to do that by those that are the propagandists who teach them to sit back and be complacent.
Look at the fruit, look at society, is what the Christian church overall doing working?
The viewpoint below comes from a speaker at a presbyterian denomination. I don’t get too caught up in the denominations other than see them as different parts of the body of Christ. But this is one of the few denominations that recognize that the Christian church cannot and should not retreat from society. Personally, I think the Reformation was a bad idea, and that corrections should have been done in-house, and then there would be greater unity in the church. But the Reformation happened and we have to deal with things as they are, not as we would wish them to be.
There is no place for “the pot to call the kettle black.” Whatever transgression of one denomination, there can be found a failing in another denomination. The Protestants were against the Catholics for certain things, but now there is a protestant denomination that says same sex “marriage” is acceptable (which it is not, God created man and woman as the marriage unit). The point is, the Reformation might as well have been made in “in-house,” as the split did not solve all problems. It took 1500 years before there was a split in the church becase of “issues.” It has taken only 500 years for the protestant break-aways to degrade into “issues.”
Regardless of the church’s problems, the fact is, the message that Jesus Christ gave the church to deliver, the message of Jesus Christ as the only hope of salvation, and redemption, still comes through the imperfect vessel called the church. That is the hope of the world.
But if the church hopes to continue to preach the gospel, then it needs to re-engage in seeking to keep elections and nations free of satanic, atheistic, globalist overlords who will gladly fill the halls of government if the Christians don’t want to be bothered.
