The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Today in America, hundreds of American baby boys and girls will be openly, systematically and “legally” murdered. They will then often be “legally” dismembered and “legally” sold piecemeal to “legally” protected (and often taxpayer funded) ghouls.
Today in America, the once-private conversations of American citizens are slurped up and analyzed by an Orwellian surveillance system so thorough in its invasion and obliteration of privacy that even the vague thought of such a system would have made even the most vile and authoritarian of gestapo or KGB agents weep with envy.
Today in America, we’re not even free to own our own home. The State owns ’em all. We’re just serfs renting from our master, the Almighty American State. Don’t believe me? Try not paying your rent (“property taxes”) and see how long it takes for your true landlord (the State) to remind you of your true position as a perpetual renter in practice.
It would seem that we’ve lost quite a lot of liberty and freedom here in “the land of the free” over the past 100+ years.
It would also seem that, at the same time, we’ve been spending our children (the ones we allow to live, anyway) into perpetual debt bondage under the weight of a massive military machine supposedly commissioned for the sake of “protecting our freedoms”.
So what’s the deal?
How can we have such a gigantic, globe-dominating military force and yet be losing freedoms and liberties hand over fist year after year and decade after decade?
How can this be?
How can heartbreaking pictures of children tragically murdered across the globe be held out as the reason for our latest step down the long path of American perpetual war…while thousands of American children are “legally” murdered in America each and every day.
Why is our right to own a home outright not protected?
Why is our right to a private conversation not protected?
Why are our children’s lives not worthy of protection?
Why is our massive, globe-spanning military machine not brought in to defend any of the innocent little baby boys and girls being butchered for convenience and profit here in “the home of the brave”?
Because it’s all a lie.
A very purposeful lie.
If the notions of “freedom”, “liberty”, and “bravery” that we’re encouraged to mindlessly sing about on cue like trained chimps had any real meaning to us at all, we’d be openly questioning what our military is doing spending a(nother) fortune attacking a(nother) country on the other side of the planet while our freedoms are being eviscerated right here and now at home.
Something to think about as pictures of terrible things done to Syrian children are used to drag us off to yet another war while thousands of baby boys and girls are murdered openly and “legally” each and every day here in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”.
America’s greatest need is a spiritual awakening!
There never will be a spiritual awakening in this country until we repent and believe the Gospel – obey the biblical God the LORD Jesus Christ and live in obedience to His Word. Without this, there never will be moral change or a cure to our nation’s countless social ills.
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
