Straining Out The Unconstitutional Gnat To Swallow the Unconstitutional Camel.


 Matt 23: 24  Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

The brouhaha  with the constitutionality or lack thereof of government initiated prayer or religious symbols on government property made me think.

It’s amusing that those who raise up this stink only have a constitutional problem with the things of God.

What about the unconstitutionality of government officials lying under oath?

And the unconstitutionality of scandals, or penalizing the exempt status of conservative groups, based on doctrinal differences with the government?

What about the unconstitutionality of Benghazi, or Fast and Furious?

Or  the  unconstitutionality of taking private donations to fund Obama care?

Or the unconstitutionality of news organizations being wire tapped?

Where is their voice then?

If  they are so focused on guarding the constitutionality of our Constitution, they should be the vanguard of these bigger issues. I never hear them complain about the corruption, lies, or scandal plaguing our government.

Matt 23:23  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Well said it Jesus. These folk deliberate  the conflict with prayer and omit the weightier matters which encroach  our Constitution.

The one thing that can fix the scandals and lies is changed hearts by repentance to God. Yet this is the thing that they attack as unconstitutional.

Matt 23:25  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

26  Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, which the outside of them may be clean also.

These folks want the veneer of  clean separation of church and state to adorn the outside of the government cup and platter, while winking at the  extortion and excesses within them.

They  don’t care about unconstitutionality.

If they did, they would be in pandemonium with all the unconstitutionalities being perpetrated.

But no, the issue is not unconstitutionality.

It goes deeper.

There are unfortunate experiences with a church, pastor, or parent , which has caused wounds so deep that now it must be projected upon the rest of us.

It’s not their civil rights, but ours, which they try to silence.

These folks need to come to the very God whom they try to make unconstitutional.

He is the only one who can set them free.

Matt 23: 24  Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Amen to Jesus!

These people strain out the gnat of  unconstitutional government led prayer, while swallowing the unconstitutional camel of scandals, deceit and extortion.

This is not only hypocrisy, but ulterior intentions and motives with agenda, many times, political.

If you want to talk to me about the unconstitutionality of public prayer let me see you take charge of the unconstitutionality of these weightier problems.

You say that the Constitution is of great importance  to you?

Let me see it first with the matters of corruption before the matters of the One who can set us free from them.

It seems like you have things backwards, my friend.

I am sorry to say, if you are not willing to tackle the bigger constitutional issues, while attacking prayer and religious symbols, I am not very much interested in talking to you.

The Sink Hole, The White House, and Wall Street


About eight years ago, our family was invited to the home of Pastor Lalitha Rachur, in New Mexico to pray in the New Year. During this time I had a vision of the map of the USA with a caved in hole around the area of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Since that time I have been puzzled and disturbed by the vision, never getting an answer from the Lord as to what it means.

Last night (11/25/2008)  I was praying and I re asked God for the interpretation.

What He revealed me left me so troubled that I could do nothing more than ask Him to have mercy on our great nation, the USA.

The caved in hole was being progressively dug by several bulldozers. The bulldozers just kept repetitively digging up dirt and flinging it behind them. There was no rhyme or reason to their digging. The thoughtless dredging of the earth represents our American mindsets. It is a zombie like, robotic, unthinking consumption.

It was a wasteful, non-stopping, digging, excavating, grabbing and dumping, over and over and over.

A lustful need for more and more, without discernment, or thankfulness to God, or thinking of our neighbors, or our future, or of our children, was what I saw. Just a digging, grabbing, and dumping, a digging, grabbing and dumping, ensued throughout the vision.

If you have ever seen the phenomena of a sinkhole, as the hole widens, suddenly homes hundred reds of feet away,  lose their foundation and sink into the hole.

I suddenly saw the White House and Wall Street totally lose their foundation and collapse in into the loose soil near to the hole. By all effects, there was no more Main Street or Wall Street.

I realized then that America had not foundation except soil. I cried, O God, bring in some cement into the soil so that our White House or Wall Street do not collapse into the sink hole.

I realized that the cement must be brought in by the church. As I cried, it seemed like bits of cement were being injected into the soil around it, but it seemed too little.

We the church have been so asleep. After I got off my knees and went back to bed, I wonder if it is too little too late or of we still have time to awaken and place enough of the foundation of God into this land to prevent a total collapse of this country. I will continue to pray.

The Kenyans say, “Where God reveals God deals. “ I am thinking about my children and the generation that we are mentoring!

This Vision Came On
