In the present Congress session of the USA, there is much talk about leadership and change.There is a lot of bragging going on about who is now in charge. I have lived long enough to see all this before. People in leadership get drunk with power as if the only reason they got in that position was their own effort, and they seem to feel, now that they have this power, they will keep it forever. Congressional leaders, senators, bureaucrats and even presidents, prime ministers, kings and queens, popes, archbishops and all manner of preachers and religious leaders should read this scripture: “He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding”(Daniel 2:21). And as God told Pharaoh: “And in very deed for this cause I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power: and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth”(Exodus 9:16).
At best, the position of power in both houses of Congress is precarious. In the Senate all it will take is three less Democrats to put the Republicans back in power. There are 53 Democrats, and 47 Republicans. In the House, the majority is 242 Republicans, and 190 Democrats, but there are House elections for various states every two years, so that power doesn’t necessarily last as long.
In my judgment, the Republicans would still have their power if those who vowed to be conservative had held their ground. Then there is the disappointing corruption among many in both parties. Congressman Foley, as disgusting as he was, wasn’t the only sinner. The difference being the largely biased news media which pounded on the Republicans while largely winking at the sins of the Democrats. But all this is only on the surface. Behind the scenes is God, setting history as He has decreed it. Could it be that the reason He has permitted the largely liberal, antichrist, immoral, anti-American, one world government crowd to prevail in America, is because the land is under the righteous judgment of God? Think about it; how long will the holy God Jehovah allow a country that professes “In God We Trust” and “One Nation Under God” to continue down the slippery slope of ungodliness?
So many open sins, now like open wounds! Must I name them for you? Ironically, many heterosexuals want to live together without marriage. This is not new, but is now a rampant epidemic! This is while homosexuals want to get “married” and have their marriages recognized by the states! Of course, the main reason is so they can get insurance benefits and other privileges of marriage. The major TV networks, print media and advertisers in the marketplace are pushing the homosexual agenda, and these sodomites largely control Hollywood, so they also push it.
Then there is the abortion industry that continues unchecked in spite of the stretch of 12 years of “conservatives” in power. Babies are murdered every day. Of what marriages there are, over half end in divorce. The murder rate is sky high. Robberies and violent crime are up. Every outward vestige of Christianity is under attack, yet because of “political correctness”, Muslim teaching is being allowed in many public schools. I don’t even need to talk about the added burden to taxpayers because illegal immigrants can come here and get as many or more government benefits than can a US citizen, all because our politicians won’t enforce the laws we presently have!
The point is, this is a sick nation. A sin-sick nation! If you were God, what would you do? I am thankful that neither you nor I are on that High throne of heaven! “How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord?”(Psalm 13:1) Remember the sermon I wrote She Hath Done What She Could? What can we do? All we can do is humble ourselves, pray, and cast ourselves on the mercy of a just God. 2 Chronicles 7:14 can, and must be applied! Oh how we need revival, for our nation’s survival! Brethren and sisters, seek God for it!

It was 2008, when we started placing audio sermons online Some of the sermons we have at that site ( and now here as well), are from old tapes converted to MP3, but the quality is pretty good. Now we have also added newer ones by others, as well as myself, that are mastered digitally from the start. So we have a mixture of old and new. I hope they are helpful. It is a growing ministry still committed to the Old Paths of the true gospel. There is not another gospel!
