‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

I’m Was Right Then and I’m Still Right Now

My 2013 eBook titled: ‘Random Rants: I Was Right Then and I’m Right Now’ could be retitled, ‘Nothing Has Changed, I’m Still Right’ and the publication date could be this morning.  The following are two chapters from the referenced eBook.  

If my math is correct, we’ve had a combined total of no fewer than 20 Presidential and Congressional elections since the first of the ‘Random Rants’ included in said eBook was written in 2011.  With the exception of President Donald Trump, what good have any of the elections done for us?  And yet Christians and so-called conservative voters have doubled-down in their determination to continue making the same quasi-good intentioned mistakes – refusing to realize the road to hell is littered with “good intentions.” 

I implore you to tell me what part of anything I said 10-years ago is still not true today, and if “I was right then and I’m still right now,” what will it take for people to heed the warning?  Or are we truly in days like those of Noah?  

If you believe I’m wrong and that I’m too heavily focused upon God just ignore me or write me off.  But if you agree with me, what are you doing in accordance with Matthew 28.18-20 KJV.  I await your replies.

America Is Heading In The Wrong Direction (Chapter 9: January 9, 2012)
As I was reading in the scriptures this morning, Psalm 33:12 jumped out at me. The Psalmist wrote, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (KJV) Therein you have it, I thought.

There was a time that ours was a blessed nation and that God was indeed our Lord. Non- essential stores and businesses were closed on Sundays. Ergo, people had time for church and family. There was a time that from television westerns to sit-coms to family programming, all had as their central theme a standard of morality based on Judeo- Christian principles. There was a time that families provided for themselves; euthanasia of the elderly was unheard of; crime rates outside of Chicago, New York, and New Jersey were low, and, despite what Planned Parenthood would have us believe, women weren’t lining up in back alleys to impale their unborn children on coat-hangers.

The United States of America meant something; we were proud to be Americans. “Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness” – truth, justice, and freedom – were key components to our way of life. For the most part, government understood its role and stayed out of matters that concerned the state. But, there is a reason man was expelled from the Garden of Eden, and that same willful disobedience has haunted man since.

So it has been with America. The greatest nation in the world, perhaps even in history, has reached a point that we’ve come to trust in men to the near complete abandonment of trusting in God. We have become a nation that celebrates the coarsest form of debauchery – and pagan ritualisms such as the government sanctioned murder of [60] million children. Schools are cesspools for the breeding of diseased minds; respect for personal property and property rights has been trumped by out-of-control government intrusion, and God is acceptable in the public square only if He is the prefix for profanity.

Pastors have stopped preaching Jesus and embraced those things that would have been unthinkable on any level not so very long ago. And even more egregious, these things have become so pervasive that current generations have lost all understanding of from whence America has come. And now we stand on the precipice of collapse.

America is facing collapse of not only our historic traditions but also of our financial institutions, the public educational system, our military, and every institution we can point to. Our healthcare system was the finest in the history of the world – but thanks to the corrupt and baneful logic of the Communist-inspired, complicit with those who embrace the idea of something for nothing (or at the very least something which someone else pays for), we face the collapse of medicine, in this country, as we have known it.

But, have we learned? I argue we have not. We hear people every day claiming to be praying for God to take back the country but not realizing we are doing everything in our power to ensure God has no part in our daily lives. We cannot continue to re-elect those who brought us to this level of destruction just as we cannot continue to elect those like them. Religion in this country has come to mean anything but Christ, and individual responsibility has been exchanged for that which is convenient.

The Psalmist was right, and the fact that the further we remove ourselves from God, the further we remove America from God. The end result of these actions assures us a place on the ash heap of history and we won’t be the first great nation to end up there for the same reasons. We’ll simply be the greatest to end up there.

I Was Thinking (Chapter 26: June 17, 2011)
Why is it that purity tests, as many derisively call them, are wrong for us to consider? Why are we as Christian conservatives and those who believe in morality, sanctity of life, family, and the constitution, always called upon to abandon our principles? Why doesn’t the Republican Party take the inflexible stance that they support these things? When will they admit that it is the abandonment of these principles that has led us to where we are?  They invoke God’s name when it’s convenient, but they deny Him in the public square. Having morals and standing for morality would make it much less likely the Republican hierarchy would lie and obfuscate when it comes to their base. It is time for us to reject what they stand for and espouse. For them it is about control and regaining power – it has nothing to do with us or what is important to us. They don’t give a rat’s tail about what’s important to us. Their actions are gotcha politics between themselves and Democrats. Count the number of times we have been shafted by so-called leadership – start counting backwards from [today’s so-called leadership inventing ways to compromise or cravenly surrender on matters of importance to us]

But none of what I have said has prevented Republicans from shamelessly and dishonestly using President Trump’s name to raise hundreds of millions of dollars that never finds its way to benefit you and I.
