Today is Your Day to Act


Rush Limbaugh asked the question of why is there no outrage over what has been going on in the United States in these last several years? Why is there no one standing up doing something about these attacks on the family and our culture? I had already touched on that subject before, but now I will delve into that very question with more detail.

When Moses was delivering his speeches to Israel in the book of Deuteronomy, he prophesied to them of what would happen to them sometime after they had conquered the land of Canaan and had begun to enjoy its riches. God said to Israel through Moses:

“For when I shall have brought them (the people of Israel) into the land which I swore to their fathers, that flows with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and become fat; then will they turn to other gods and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant (laws).” (Deut. 31: 20)

God’s people in the United States have become fat. They like the life they have now and do not want to be inconvenienced by protesting about what is going on in this nation. They will pray for change but will not lift a finger of their own to bring about change themselves.

In the Lord of the Ring trilogies, there is a spot in the film where Frodo says, “I can’t do this, Sam.” Sam responds,

I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.”

Another way of saying what Sam was saying here is that, “You were born for such a time as this. If you want to hold onto the good in this land, then you must take action and do it yourself, because you were placed here with this opportunity to set things right.”

Another scene has Frodo thinking, “I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.” Gandalf is then speaking to him in his mind saying,

“So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.”

We are in times just like the time depicted in the Lord of the Rings. However, in our case the forces are more spiritual than physical although physical manifestations abound. For example, gay marriage is now legal in all states and no state can so no to it. Dark forces are dominating the United States, today. The Christians of today were born for this time, and this is their time to stand up and fight just as Sam and Frodo did in the Lord of the Rings story. But, alas the people of God’s Church have decided they like the leisurely life more. They do not want to inconvenience themselves over moral issues. They do not want any disruption in their own private lives. That is a classic example of self being more important than God in a person’s life. That is why we are in this dilemma in the United States.

It is never hard for the people opposed to God to rise up in rebellion and outrage. Korah and many others rose up against Moses and Aaron wanting more power for themselves. God destroyed those rebels. However, when the community at large (which is the entire country in our case) sees evil gaining footholds inside of it, there are almost always only a very few who will rise up against the evil that is trying to seize power over the community. In one case in the Torah, Phinehas, the grandson of Aaron was the only person who rose up in a rage to put an end to the evil trying to get a foothold inside the congregation, i.e. the people of Israel. God honored Phinehas for standing up to that evil. We need Christians in the United States rising up in outrage to stand up against gay marriage, abortion and the removal of God from our society. Without this, the end has come for this nation. Is there anyone that has a will to fight amongst us?

Why are there no Frodos and Sams among us? Why do we let evil reign over us? Why do we think there is not a price to pay for letting evil have its way in our society? Alas, there is a price, and we will be paying for it very soon.

All of you who have decided that you do not want to inconvenience yourself in this matter and do not want any disruption in your own private life; beware. Because, God is going to cause there to be a total disruption of your life. God is going to judge this nation starting this fall, and nothing will ever be the same in this country again. Horrible times are coming, because God will cleanse all the evil out of it and drive millions of people out of this nation in the process. He will leave nothing in it that offends. No wishy washy Christian will escape the hard times that will disrupt his or her life. Things are going to be very bad. Millions are going to die in this judgment. After all, millions of babies have died by legal abortion, and the law of sowing and reaping is still in effect.

If you want to save this nation, then it is you who were born for such a time as this. It is you who has to take action. If you are waiting for someone else to do it, then it will not get done. Someone has to act, and it is going to take a lot more than one of us to do it. We all need to unite to save the United States. God has warned us, and if we do not act just like they did not act in Jeremiah’s day, then the end of the United States will come. There is no doubt that the end is near for us and lives of leisure are coming to an end in this country. Today is your day to be a Frodo and Sam and make a difference.
