(The joke is that US Christians whine about being ostracized while every US president so far has publicly claimed to be a Christian, although that claim’s validity is debatable for many. There are other groups that haven’t been represented in the position, including worshippers of any other religion, women, openly LGBT+ folk, and until 2009, non-Caucasians.)

I saw an ad for this article because I forgot to enable adblocker and clicked it to make them lose money. I needed to wait for it to get approved but they did not notice the satire.

The article, for the record, says:

[Stock photo of a cross with Bible quote overlaid]:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”
(Ephesians 6:12-17)

SUNDAY SERVICE

DOMINION OVER SPIRITUAL TERRORISTS 1A

March 26, 2024

There is a general lukewarmness in the Church today and it would appear to have started after the Covid 19 pandemic. It is not peculiar to this nation and it is not a good sign. People are now very lazy about the things of God; lazy to gather, they prefer virtual meetings instead. This is in direct violation of the word of God. How many people even participate in the virtual meetings properly? Many times during the virtual service, some people are busy doing other things in their homes. This is a lie of the devil, a very big one.

The Church is in dire need of revival. The Church in this nation is under the siege of spiritual terrorism. It is not just ordinary. The level of physical terrorism going on in this nation is not ordinary, there is more to it. They are getting bolder by the day and because they have noticed that there is no push back, they keep pushing for more grounds and take more territories.

Today, there is a very blurry of line between the world and the Church; tradition of the people (vain traditions) and the Church. It happens even in the Church. It is written in the Bible that a time will come when it will be difficult for anyone to be a Christian.

"You may as well know this too, Timothy, that in the last days 
it is going to be very difficult to be a Christian”.

2 Timothy 3:1 TLB

A lot of people are too encumbered. God’s work is a fiery work, only burning forces can move it forward. If you are no longer passionate about the things of God, it is an indication that something has gone terribly wrong. I pray that God will silence every voice of the adversary that is trying to put off the fire of God in your life, trying to dilute, trying to diffuse, trying to dislocate, trying to confuse, trying to deceive, trying to disrupt and trying to divert to direct your attention away from the presence of God in the mighty name of Jesus.

Nothing is better than being in the presence of God. The Psalmist understood it when he said, I was glad when they say to me, let us go into the house of the Lord. That should be our song; to be excited when we are called into the presence of God. It is only in the presence of God that you find meaning to life, that you find fulfillment, treasures and fullness of joy. That is the only place that makes sense.

𝐏𝐑𝐀𝐘 –

  • Lord, please help me. Do not allow me to get cold. I want to be where you want me to be at all times doing what you want me to do and fulfilling it all the way, all the time.
  • Hear my cry and attend to the voice of my supplication. Be not far from me. Do not allow me to put the things that should come last first and put the things that should come first last. Help me not to put the wrong foot forward.
  • Make me a person of your presence. I desire your presence more than I desire gold. Grant me grace to walk with you. Supernaturally empower me that I may operate in the highest in the name of Jesus.
  • Uphold me by your spirit and guide me. Shield me, O Lord, from taking wrong decisions. Help me to prioritize aright. For one thing is needful: your presence. Help me. I depend on you.
  • Do not allow me to get cold. Let the fire of your presence be intensified in my life in the name of Jesus.
  • Kindle the fire of your presence and keep me burning for you; keep me aglow in the name of Jesus. Thank you, Lord. I give you praise, in Jesus’ name.

TO BE CONTINUED.

Oh no, not the anti-Christian society of today! I pray I’ll live to see an openly Christian president in the US.

    My guess is that when they say “Christian” they don’t mean “following some version of the Christian faith” but “a Christian fundamentalist who wants to enforce their specific version of Christianity as the state religion”.

    I’m pretty sure that no American president to date is sufficiently Christian for them, nor is e.g. the pope.

        True, but in Republican circles that man has a reality distortion field that makes the one Steve Jobs had pale in comparison. Trump could tell them he’s the true god and Christianity is a lie and they’d scramble to find a way to rebuild their world view around that.

      “Christian” means “good”, which translates to “believes as Karen does I do”.

      Similarly for “patriotic”, “principled”, “integrity”, “has values”, “is reasonable”, “has ethics”, etc. - the list is quite extensive.

      Words don’t mean what they “mean” anymore. Tbf, it’s mostly among the uneducated, and the USA Is not the only nation thus afflicted, though it is very powerful thus affects the global situation.

      All we can do is ensure our own integrity, and try to reach out to anyone on the fence who might be listening.

      If it’s a joke, the website is way too committed to the bit. They appear to also have less ridiculous articles with no obvious signs of satire, host Sunday and Friday service, sell books etc. The “New Month” is probably just something to fill their WordPress template’s calendar widget that they never figured out how to delete.

    There was a delusional ‘President’ with religion-like structures in the government not long ago. It didn’t go well, and he murdered 6 million jews.
