Waking Up the American Church

Yesterday, Kim Davis of Kentucky was jailed for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Citing an authority that is greater than any sitting judge or judges, she was ultimately penalized for exercising her religious freedom and the order was given to place her in jail.

This is a sad day for the church and all Americans as the religious freedom fought and paid for by our forefathers has been taken hostage by a minority of people who will stop at nothing to advance their agenda.

And, while many in the place of Kim Davis would have given in, she has stood firm in spite personal attacks on her character, mockery and even death threats. Just read the comments following the new stories about this. They will make you sick to your stomach, they are so vile. You would think she was a baby killer …. not someone exercising her right to religious freedom. But, oh that’s right …. if she were a baby killer, she would be a hero working at Planned Parenthood packaging baby parts for shipment while the big checks roll in.

Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. This train has been coming down the tracks for a while and is now full steam ahead. The enemy (the evil one, the devil, Ha Satan) smells blood and thinks he has the church on the run but nothing could be further from the truth. He should know better.

For the martyred church is a strong church!  Not in terms of physical strength but of growing up spiritually and getting our priorities straight. And, if there is anything that will wake up the sleeping Laodicean church it would be this. Start jailing Christians and you will finally see some people getting serious about their faith.  And, as a result, the church will begin to grow exponentially in a way seeker friendly programs could never produce. For its been said, “the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church” – just ask our brothers and sisters in places like China, they will tell you.

I had originally titled this “Waking up the Church” but realized my mistake and changed it to waking up the American church.. My apologies to all my non-American readers. We tend to be a little myopic in this country. Instead, I would like to ask your prayers for us, the American Church …… as we finally begin to grow up a little.

One more thing … the name Kim means “brave or noble”  …. and, Davis a derivative of David. The mightiest of Israel’s Kings.

Take heart Kim, the Lord is with you and so are we.

And, as always,

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee”  Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!   Cindy

  1. The atrocities that have been allowed to culminate and crescendo to this point has happened right under the “churches” nose, largely in part to it’s unwillingness to depart from evil.
    I agree all these things have happened but they did not just happen, people have allowed it, and their tax dollars in part have payed for it.
    Who is more evil, the one who commits the act, or the one who stands by silently?

    Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    The train has left the station for some.
