Licenses

April 21, 2015

In the U.S., the D.M.V. of each state requires people to have driver licenses to operate a motor vehicle. The Fish and Wildlife also require people to obtain hunting/fishing licenses. While fishing, it is illegal to keep a trout without a trout stamp.

If a person is caught without a driver license, hunting or fishing license, they are fined or hauled off to jail.  Most states reserve a certain time to hunt deer’s, squirrels, ducks, rabbits or turkeys.  officers the permission to kill anywhere and by any means. In the past, it was beating or lynching. Time past and the officers have graduated to using guns to commit murder. Now, they are using cruisers to run people down on side-walks, choking them to death on side-walks or breaking their spine. With the latest officer shooting of a black man with a knife in St. Louis, MO; the chief stated: his officer had no choice. We always have choices. The officer could have shot him in the leg or shoulder. A dash-cam captured an officer warning a charging Caucasian male to get on the ground. Officer replying: “I don’t want to shoot you”. Many black men have lost their lives because officers stated ‘he charge at me’. How many of these black males did officers constantly warn or did they just shoot?

Where are the leaders while all these killings and wrong-doing are taking place? Why is everyone silent? In the Old Testament, Prophets was sent with messages to kings and leaders. As the Lord lives, the man who has done this shall surely die!  And he shall restore fourfold for the lamb, because he did this thing and because he had no pity.” Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! (2 Samuel 12:5-6) God message for leaders today is still the same: ‘repent and turn’.

If murder was wrong back in the Old Testament, it is still wrong today. Have we gotten away from trading the Gospel to gossip? John the Baptist preached “repent” for the Kingdom is near. (Matt. 3:2) What messages are we sending? Are we pleasing God or man? God said to Abraham: “if you find ten righteous people, I will spare the city”. (Genesis 18:32) Can we find ten righteous people for God to spare this Country?

While we are sitting quietly and silent, Satan is invading the ranks and plucking Christians out one by one. We have become afraid to “rock the boat or speak out of wrongdoing” because we don’t want to offend a certain groups. We have got to return to teaching sins, forgiveness, repentance or hell. I recall growing up and listening to Dr. Billy Graham. People feared hell and respected God. Many of Dr. Graham messages were “repent, disobedience, sins and hell.”

Prayer: Lord, we lift You up, so You will draw men unto You. Forgive us of our sins and help us to see the wickness of our ways, that we may turn and live. We realize we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but the power of darkness in these last days.
