Foreknowledge does not equivocate Damnation.

The Lord gave free will to man and dominion over the earth. When man became subservient to Satan during the fall from the Garden of Eden, then he and Satan took dominion over the earth instead. It is a testament to the Sovereignty of God, that he is able to work “all things for good” Romans 8:28 – to those called according to his purpose (even despite a fallen world)! Providentially, out of all of humanity, God foreknew (the ones who would come to him) and to those he chose, called, and elected, to be conformed to His Son, partaking in his glory.

The below passage does not show that “all” couldn’t come, rather it merely shows that God foreknew (before the foundations of the earth) those who would come. The Lord is not in violation of his decision to give man free will, or in choosing damnation for some, yet not for others. As all of humanity is openly (yet passively-if you will) given the chance by grace to become the Sons and Daughters of God.

2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Yet like in the days of Noah, most will reject the grace of God towards salvation, in putting their own desires above God.

New American Standard Bible – Romans 8:29-30
29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.

King James Version – Romans 8:29-30
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

New Living Translation – Romans 8:29-30
29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.

Young’s Literal Translation – Romans 8:29-30
29 because whom He did foreknow, He also did fore-appoint, conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be first-born among many brethren;
30 and whom He did fore-appoint, these also He did call; and whom He did call, these also He declared righteous; and whom He declared righteous, these also He did glorify.

I call it Debauchery

The United States has gone from a Judaeo-Christian nation in its founding, to a state of debauchery. This has been the downfall of Western Civilizations throughout the ages.

Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ was at the heart of many settlers within the new world, and up until the latest generations, the Bible was the biggest selling book in America.

After the Second World War, the United States was suffering from a teacher shortage, the pro-socialist / humanist movement in Europe at that time had influenced education and started slipping away from its Christian informed moorings. The importation of European teachers was the start of what was to become the National Education Association and was rooted in this new humanism, often called today Cultural Marxism.

By 1962-1963 Bible reading and prayer in schools would be abandoned primarily because of the work of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, who would become the President of the American Atheist, and by 1964 was daubed by Life magazine as “the most hated woman in America”.

This terminology about O’Hair would never hold true today, as our education system has systematically and deliberately thrown any mention of the Lord and the reading of Biblical texts out of our schools and colleges. Also coupled with the Feminist and homosexual movements of the 1970s would change the culture forever.

The Obama administration was active in championing pro-Marxist viewpoints in our school systems and universities, coupled with a leftist (man-made) Climate Change indoctrination in the sciences, (designed to weaken industrialized nations) with a reinterpretation of the history that had been traditionally taught about the founding of America. These teachings have permeated young minds as truth, and many have a wrong understanding of the principles of the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. The result is generations of “Woke” indoctrinated children, many of whom are now adults, and have been indoctrinated by the humanist school systems to dismiss even “religions” as they call them, as irrelevant to the modern culture and their morality.

Now many younger Americans are ashamed of America, for having never been taught classical Western Civilization in our schools. Amazingly in every aspect, not excluding even the hard sciences like mathematics and of course English, and history, which was replaced by cultural diversity (Social Studies) by the late 1980s. Since then, the idea of a “Racist America” who are also intolerant of “alternative lifestyles” (LGBTQ+) has been forced to the forefront by lobbyists like the “Human Rights Foundation” located in Washington DC, which equate the union of one man and one woman in marriage, to other unions holding to a pluralistic viewpoint of any sexual union which makes “anyone” (no holds barred) happy and fulfilled as a human right. Many of whom are openly hostile towards the old “Moral Majority”; coined for use during the Reagan administration by Jerry Falwell.

This majority of American parents were opposed by what I call these debauch-erst activist groups, who are in opposition to the traditional nuclear family structuring and yet, who are but a minority of the population. These viewpoints are being assisted by mass media, advertising, cartoons, children’s shows, and even our federal government which calls themselves “representatives of a democracy” (Republic) and supposedly ruled for the best interests of the majority of people, which is the very definition of a democracy.

Representing the majority of people is what a good government is supposed to do, but money and pressures from special interests and even foreign nation’s governments, have destroyed the strength and security of America, including our borders, language, and now culture, to a point of no return to the principles we were blessed with beyond measure!

I really don’t expect a Civil War or Revolution in America, but rather the continual gradual takeover by governments like the UN or China, who are more committed to their oppressive rule of Communism, than the United States has been to the freedoms found in the Lord, who allowed the birth of this new Nation.

THE GREAT SEPARATION

I made this graphic to explain the “holding places” of people’s souls after death. Hades actually includes “Lower Hell” as some translations describe it, yet Hades and Hell are still not Heaven. I did an extensive study on this, (I was asked to) and have upgraded my findings in this graphic. The late Johnathan Edwards, I have found, has a greater understanding than most contemporary teachers.

A graphic expressing the Biblical “spiritual” paths; that humanity will choose.
Revelation 20:14  (Original 1611 King James Bible)

And death (Hades) and Hell were cast into the lake of fire: this is the second death.

“Sheol means ‘The place of departed spirits.’ Sheol/Hades was the abode of the spirits of the dead. Before the resurrection of Christ, both believers and unbelievers went to Sheol/Hades.  Unbelievers still go there.” – This updated graphic took a lot of Bible studying to get this correct; and research from men like, Johnathan Edwards was the best help.

Independence Day

We hear a lot about the “Separation of Church and State” today, that term written by Thomas Jefferson in the light of the great awakening. Today we have a reversal of what was intended for this new nation, primarily because of religious persecution from the State magistrates.

An example of this was The Puritans, who fled to America as they were often persecuted for their faith by the crown, and not being subservient to the Church of England.

In our earliest form of government, religious groups “Constituted” the amount of control to be placed over them by the law. Later we would get our term Constitution from these same constructs.

John Adams has his hand on his hip in the center of the picture.

Freedom to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ was at the core of this new nation, and a “Declaration of Independence” was driven forward by men like John Adams on July 1st, 1776. John Adams was willing to sacrifice his all for this new liberty so that his children might have the opportunity to hear the truth of the Gospel in every area of life.

Most today are not taught that it was the Colonial Pastors who inspired their church’s thinking. Also, the Federalist Papers (debate) printed in the news helped bring about the American Revolution.

The Battle of Lexington and Concord, which began the Revolutionary War, was led by Jonas Clark, Pastor of the Church in Lexington, twenty years before the Revolution. Other Clergymen like Jonathan Edwards, James Whitfield, and countless others supported this new form of Liberty; primarily for the sake of the Gospel, without the heavy foot of tyrannical government being oppressive to personal liberty, and what the founders saw as God-given freedoms from the Creator.

This is what our Independence Day (the 4th of July) represents.
