The Cross is a sign of sin, of shame (because of breaking the law). It is not a symbol of beauty to hang around your neck. Nor a good luck charm. It stands for death, for shame (due to guilt of committing a crime). It became the means of payment for my and your sin. For Jesus could not (even being God Himself) forgive our sins. Being just and holy the penalty had to be paid. That ment that we would have to die for our sins (breaking God's Ten Commandants) which ment going to Hell to be punished forever. But God commendeth His love for us that He gave His Son JESUS to die for our sins, to pay the penalty for our sins. So we can now go to Him, REPENT for breaking His Laws, and ask for forgiveness. He knows our heart. So if we truly realize our sins and more than being just sorry, but grieved that we offended God by disobeying His Commandants, than He can and will then forgive us for our sins, because He can, for He is the one who paid for our sins. There is no one else can or has or will do this for us. No matter what religion you believe there is only one way. For it had to be one who was sinless, just, holy, righteous, and one who is God. So you see there is no way it could or can be no one else but Jesus the sinless son of God. Who left all the splendor of heaven to come to the earth, to suffer, to be our guide to show us the way, no to be our way to God the Father. He had to suffer in pain for our sins and it could not have happened any other time in the past or future but when it did. Come to Him now while you can. Ask Jesus to forgive you. That you accept His payment that He made to pay for your sins. So you will not have to die and go to Hell. You may not have another opportunity. So you had better do it now!
So what is sin? Have you ever in your whole life ever told a lie? Well sin is breaking God's Ten Commandants and you just admitted to breaking one. Have you ever lusted after someone? Then you have committed ADULTERY. Have you ever hated someone? Then you have committed MURDER. Need we to go on? Have you ever worked on Sunday, bought something, caused someone else to work on Sunday? (The Sabbath is actually Saturday that is the day that you should worship God). Then you have broken another by not keeping the Sabbath HOLY. What is the most important thing (possession) or person in your life? If it is not God then you have broken another. And again it is not if you are doing it now it is have you EVER. And there is still more.
National Sins: Abortion, Homosexuality, Adultery, HomoSexual Military We are going to be held responible for these.
Have you ever heard of the phrase "Broken Arrow" or FPF? This is where we are today! We are being over run by evil.
FEAR THIS! We are about to loose our freedom. This could happen at any time but will happen unless we REPENT! And I am speaking to the Christians. Why? We have forsaken God! You may say I have not. I go to church. What do you do after church? Do you go out to eat? YOU have and are breaking God's Commandants! What commandants? His Ten Commandants! He said to keep the Sabbath Holy. And if you study you will find what all He means by this. If you are breaking this one I know you are breaking more! So why are we going to loose our freedom? God will not put up with our continual sins. We are making our own gods by not putting belief and trusting and obeying HIS Commandants. We say it is little and it is ok. Everyone else is doing it. But what does He say about it. We have been living a lie! Our lives are not under the power of God so have no impact on the world, our country, where we live. So our little sin (Does HE think that it is little and does not matter? I know not!) that we condone takes away our witness, our power to witness, our ability to stand against evil. We must ALL REPENT! And NOW! Or else God is and will remove us or in another way to remove our freedom. We will then pay for our sin. For we will pay for our sins. For not protecting and preserving our country. There is still time. But it is about to run out. And then it will be too late and then will be no turning back. READ the WORD and see what God has done before for a disobedient people and country. Seek God, His Righteous, His Holiness, His FORGIVENESS. You will not escape. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the true and living God! FEAR THIS FEAR HIM AND REPENT! The fear of Jehovah God is the beginning of wisdom. And with fear of God we will not fear men nor their devises.

Suppose We Do Keep Christ - Christmas: Then What? submitted by rcbrown 12/25/2011
There are millions of people today rallying around the cry, "Keep Christ in Christmas". Many resent the subtle removal of Jesus from the holiday by using the replacement greeting, "Happy Holidays".
Growing up, I (and most of the people I knew), looked forward to having a "Christmas Tree", seeing baby Jesus in a nativity scene on a neighbor's front lawn, and really did enjoy saying "Merry Christmas", to everyone I met!
What is the problem? Who is the problem? What is the answer? What: So many people see and feel taxes are too high (and they are) and the high cost of living and problems with loss of jobs and loss of Constitution, and Country's debt, and -------. Yes this is a list of some problems and of course the government is too big, larger than it was designed to be. So many other things that we can add to this list but it is not the root of the problem. NO IT IS NOT. Yes this may be surprising you but the main problem that has created or allowed the these problems is sin. Yes Sin. Murder or we call it abortion or choice (read more & see the scriptures). Homosexuality is perversion yes sin, abomination (read more & see the scriptures). But basically it is breaking Jehovah's Ten Commandments (see these defined). This IS the problem. All that we see and people are pointing out are only the results of this problem. And God is allowing these situations to try to alert us, to warn us and to cause us search for the answer.
Who is the problem? Some will say the president. Some will say others but please let me reveal to you who it really is. I am the problem and you are the problem. All those whom are CHRISTians. What you say. Yes we have forgotten Yahovah God and lived our own way (breaking the 1st Commandment) rejecting His direction and obeying Him. We are why the country is the way it is. And is in the shape it is in. Hosea 4:6 "My People are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."
So are there any HOPE? Is there an answer? Can anything be done?
Answer to you is yes but. The answer is Yahshua (Jesus). He said in II Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and turn from there wicked ways, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, I will forgive their sins, and will heal their land". Here is the cure if we will hear and take it. Now let me break it down for you. Some of you reading this as you may say this does not refer to me. And you are correct. It does not refer to you if you do not know Jesus and are not surrendered to Him. Otherwise this does refer to me and you if you are a CHRISTian. For He says (my people who are called by MY name). Next Yahovah prescribes the answer. Humble themselves (we must realize how small and unrighteous we are compared to Him). Next He says we must turn from our wicked ways (REPENT). Oh you say I do not have any wicked ways. Lets look at the Law of God. Do you keep the Sabbath day holy (do you buy or sale). Sin. Do you hate people (this is murder). Do you lust? (adultery). Next step is to pray. This is not a small, short, little pray but one that we must cry out to God. We must add to this fasting. So this shows this is not a simple prayer but a enduring prayer, a prayer to pray through. Next we must seek His Face. With this He promises that if we seek Him we will find Him. He promised we will be rewarded if we diligently seek Him with all our heart. Turn and Repent TODAY!
