It is no secret that the Founding Fathers of this nation were Christian through and through. There have been reports lately that try to disprove that. But if you look at the personal letters they wrote (which have survived) and the public letters and speeches they wrote – they are filled with scripture references!
Not scripture references like you hear some people today quote. You know, when they try to quote the Bible to make a point. They are attempting to “wow” you that they know a scripture or two, so you should vote for them.
No, our Founders knew the Bible better than any Masters of Theology professor today! Remember, this was before radio and tv. So many of them would spend the early mornings and the late evenings reading the Bible! Some made a habit of reading the Bible completely through, three or four times in one year! They KNEW the scriptures!
They would lace scriptural references throughout their writings, in examples and just plain talk. Some speeches contained as much as 75% scripture references! You never see any politician do that today!
But they did not have to say, “As the Bible says in “such and such” scripture…” No. The people of that day knew the Bible’s also! So when these leaders would simply talk and reference the scripture in their messages, the people knew what they were talking about!
Well, it’s not like that today. Even life long church members do not know how to find scripture in the Bible anymore! That is why almost all the churches post the scriptures on the big screen in the sanctuary! You rarely hear a preacher today say, “Turn in your Bibles to such and such and read with me…” Because the people are to Biblical illiterate to understand what that means!
But, these are all signs of the end times as detailed in the Bible. The Bible is very clear about the “falling away” that will take place today…I mean in the last days…which we are in TODAY.
To help us talk about this situation and to offer the ONLY solution to this problem, is our good friend, Tom Donnan. Now, if you have been listening to us in our past interviews, you know as well as I do, that we have no clue where the Lord is going to lead this conversation! Praise God! We just kind of “flow with the Spirit” when Tom is here! Amen!
But one of the main cultural changes that has happened is the liberal progressives want to keep Christianity “boxed up” within the confines of the church. Right?
There have been pockets of the “manifestation of God” in various places around this nation. Most denominational churches just brush it off as emotionalism and other such things. But I know I’ve been in a few services while traveling around where the presence of God was so thick, it was like a heavy fog in the room. But it wasn’t fog or smoke or anything like that. And to this day, I’ve never experienced anything like that in almost 20 year now. Do you know what I’m talking about?
In the service I’m talking about, there were people healed. There were many that went rushing to the platform to receive Jesus – even without an altar call. Have you experienced or heard of anything like that?
And there are pastors that have never, ever experienced the presence of God like that!
You have a couple of examples where you have had a few pastors experience these things. Would you share those with our listeners?
Folks, you know what Tom and I are talking about is true. It has to be true. It’s in the Bible. You may not understand it. You may not WANT to believe it. But that does not change facts! For example, you may not have thought you were driving 70 mph in a 45 mph zone. But when the police officer pulls you over and hands you the citation, you still may not believe it. So, you go to court. You tell the judge you do not believe it. The judge then asks the officer to testify as to what happened…and the officer will detail how he observed your car driving at what appeared to be an excessive speed for that zone. How he then activated his speed tracking device, either radar of lidar (laser) and your speed indicated 70mph. How he pulled your car over and identified you as the driver, and issued you the citation. The judge says, “guilty.” You still may not believe it. But at that point – it no longer matters. The decision has been rendered and it is finished.
That is where we are at as a nation. The decision is about to rendered. And there is not one thing that any politician can do about it. There is not one thing any pastor can do about it. There is not one thing your momma, grandma, aunt or your doctor can do about it.
The ONLY thing that can change the ultimate destination, which is only going to be one of two places, is how YOU react to the what Jesus did on that cross almost 2000 years ago.
In the example I gave about the speeding ticket, what you should do is just admit to the judge you are guilty and ask for mercy. I’ve seen judges do so most of the time. The One Great Judge, will also grant you Mercy. But only if you ask for it. IF you go before Him, telling Him everyone else is wrong and you are the only one who is right…well, it will not turn out well for you in the end. It is 100% a decision ONLY YOU can make…
Tom, I sense there is somebody listening to us right now, right now, that wants to be saved. They now understand the importance of receiving the forgiveness of sins and the gift of everlasting life. Would you do the honor of leading them to Jesus, right now?
Amen. Tom, if someone wants to get in touch with you, to ask a question or maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you?
Folks, if you prayed that prayer with Tom Donnan, why don’t you let someone know. You can email me at email@example.com and let me know. You can go to Tom Donnan’s email down below or on his Facebook page and let him know. But let somebody know, amen!
