Not trying to bring politics into the forum. But I just cant help to see how these laws which seem beneficial and harmless, are but pushing us closer to the national sunday law.
Keep studying your bible and do as God inspires you.
I wish you well in your Time of Jacob's Trouble experience.
May we meet on the sea of glass!
New International Version
How awful that day will be! No other will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it.
Yes,Terri,may we meet in the sea of glass.
Until Jesus Christ comes and setup the government of God (this I believe) the only government that exist in the world is the governments Satan have built, he is the God over this world system.
5The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7If you worship me, it will all be yours.”
There are people, as well as multi-million dollar corporations that like government handouts; it’s funny how a lot of people tend to shine the spotlight on those that are in real need, but turns a blind eye to others. God’s people are pilgrims, sojourners and they have to abide until the kingdom of God comes.
The First five minuet ofColbertNation really tells part of the problem, many people just want this effort to fail. Man’s efforts will always fall short, ALWAYS, but when Jesus comes things will change for everybody!
@Terri, The sad thing is, within seventh day Adventism,no one should have to go to the government for help,and here's why:
When all has been done that can be done in helping the poor to help themselves, there still remain the widow, the fatherless, the aged, the helpless, and the sick, who need sympathy and care. Never should these be neglected. God Himself has committed them to the mercy, love, and tender care of all whom He has made His stewards.
“As we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10.
In a special sense, Christ has laid upon His church the duty of caring for the needy among its own members. He permits His poor to be in every church. They are always to be among us, and He places upon the members of the church a personal responsibility to care for them.
As the members of a true family care for one another, ministering to the sick, supporting the weak, teaching the ignorant, training the inexperienced, so is “the household of faith” to care for its needy and helpless ones. Upon no consideration are these to be passed by.
The widow and the fatherless are the objects of the Lord’s special care.
“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.”
“‘Your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
I trust wholely in Jesus Christ.
I believe in more personal responsibility for self-reliance (for the able-bodied) and less government interference in every area.
Sadly.....three generations have been 'trained up' to depend on their Uncle Sam for almost everything- even things they could fully do for themselves, but refuse.
It's a topsy turvy world...and I'm hoping that it ends SOON.
Time to stop pretending.
The King is coming - READY OR NOT.
People speak of 'get ready'....it should be BE READY.
His righteousness is what covers us.
HE IS ABLE...
