‘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.

My God Is Over Governors; They Aren’t Over Him

Americans, and specifically Americans who claim to be Christians, are quick to blame politicians and public figures for the state of affairs in America today.  But, these blamers are blind to the painful truth. It’s not the elected and it isn’t the public figures; it’s We the People who are to be blamed and specifically those who claim to be Christians.  Which brings me to my point.

The godless, amoral progeny of Satan have instituted a zeitgeist that conceals the fact that the real threat is not a flu virus that has a nearly 99 percent rate of recovery. The real threat is fear and the lengths Churches will go to satiate same.

As a Minister, it’s troubling that so many supposed believers are paralyzed with fear by this manufactured global fear and hysteria called Covid19.  I cannot stress strongly enough that God’s Word is immutable, i.e., it’s unchangeable.  God doesn’t say one thing in the Bible and authorize disobedience to it in our daily personal lives.  I find nowhere in scripture that disobedience to God’s Word was given an okay because of fear.  As born-again Christians, our first allegiance is to God and we’re to let nothing and/or no one prevent us from obeying God.

Fear has caused the Church to betray God and the people of God who were/are willing to be participants. Biblical atheism has done the rest, and is rampant among churchgoers.  A biblical atheist is one who claims to believe in heaven, hell, God, and Christ; but they don’t believe in the power of God.  They’re quick in claiming to pray, but praying without belief is powerless praying

Moses stood on the bank of the Red Sea with an uncrossable expanse of water in front of him and Pharaoh’s horde behind him.  But armed with faith, he confidently told the Israelites: “Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD which he will show to you today.” (Exodus 14:13 KJV)  Hours thereafter the Israelites crossed the Red Sea on dry ground specifically because they trusted God.

The Apostle Paul writing to the Corinthian Church admonished them: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)  Paul reminded Timothy: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV)

In God we trust is more than a saying on our currency that reprobate atheists find objectionable. It was the essential belief of our Founding Fathers as they labored to create a “…nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.”

At a time the people of America need the witness and testimony of the Christian Church, the leadership and people in most of same are cowering in the corner afraid of their own shadow.

Out of an abundance of caution, I’m unable to share the name and/or location of the following missionary work; but suffice it to say I’m aware of a missionary organization that has many years of faithful ministry in a foreign country now being sanctioned by Muslim interlopers.  They and those they’re ministering to are under intense threat to their very lives. The country’s government has unleashed an onslaught of terrorism in an effort to silence this ministry.  But as the missionary families refuse to succumb to fear and intimidation they’ve seen God answer their prayers and sustain them in miraculous ways.

In some countries people face literal death for even owning a bible, not to mention for going to Church. Yet Christians in these countries won’t be deterred.  They trust and believe God and are committed to being obedient to His Holy Word.

How many Churches in America have closed their doors without even a whimper?  The Church in America has allowed the progeny of Satan to dictate how services are conducted and who can attend.  Instead of exampling obedience to God, many invoke pablums justifying disobedience to God’s Word.

America is indeed under attack, but it isn’t an attack from outside.  America is being overrun because the one constant against tyranny has been neutered by fear.  The Church, which should be the shining candle of “Hope,” is being shuttered because of fear.

Throughout the ages and specifically in America the Church has been a place of refuge, moral authority, and a symbol of the work and ministry of God.  No longer can that be said.

The late Bible teacher, Dr. J. Vernon McGee, once famously declared: “In olden days we had wooden ships and men of steel; today we have steel ships and paper dolls.”

This isn’t a call for a social ministry; it’s a call for the Church to be what God intended.  As a man of God my example will be fearless obedience to God’s Word.
