It's Not Easy Being Green
Well, the Presidential election is over, thank heavens.Now, we know what we’re dealing with and
pretty much what to expect for the next four years.Strange thing though; when I got up this
morning, my skin had a greenish cast to it.Head to toe, as I looked in the mirror, I could not believe my spiritual
eyes!I’m as green as can be!
Notice I said my ‘spiritual eyes.’Of course, I’m not actually green.If I were, I wouldn’t be sitting here
writing, I’d be on my way to the emergency room!No, I see a BIG change that occurred last
night when Bronco Bama was reinstated as king.
Here’s a question: What color do most people associate with
aliens?Think about it.They are always referred to as, “little green
men from Mars,” right?That is precisely
what we are now.More than ever, we are
aliens, living in a world in which we do NOT belong! The differences between
our way of thinking and our character as Christians are going to become very
stark in the days and weeks ahead.
I am as disappointed as anyone else who had hoped that
Romney might, at least, slow down the demise of this country just a little
bit.He was not our savior, but it might
have been nice to be lied to by a different face, if nothing else.Make no mistake here; The United States of
America officially died last night. Born: July 4, 1776 --- Died:November 6, 2012.
The America our founding fathers lived and died to institute
is now going the way of the dinosaurs; a thing of interest in the history books,
unless they’re completely re-written as progressives are wont to do.In the next four years, and you can write
this down, we will see our dollar collapse, our liberties continue to vanish, a
communist police state emerge in all its charming glory and a move to abolish
American sovereignty in favor of a New World Order.
And this is precisely what is supposed to happen.We Christians are going to start REALLY
feeling persecuted and hated now.We’ve
never fit in, even from the days of the early church, but, boy oh boy, it’s
really gonna hit the fan now. Why should we expect anything else?We are the ones who are aliens.We do not belong to this world anymore.
In the early days of this republic, the ones who were
ostracized were the ones who refused to attend church or who got smashing drunk
at the bar.The woman with the scarlet
letter “A” applied to the front of her gown, denoting she had indulged in
adultery, was a major scandal.Thieves
or blasphemers or those who bucked the authority of their parents, were put in
stocks in the public square to be humiliated.And murderers were put to death. I don’t know if anyone even dared to
breathe the word ‘sodomite,’ so ghastly and aberrant that sin was.
Nope, now WE are the ghastly, green, alien aberrations
walking among the living dead on this earth.WE are the oddballs who refuse to accept homosexuality, corruption in
our government officials, lying, murder and treason.WE are the ones who expect our pastors to
actually lead us in the ways of God instead of concerning themselves with image
WE are the ones who resoundly say “No!” to gay marriage and the
demise or the traditional family unit.WE are the weirdo’s who are angry that Islam is being accepted and
taught in our public schools, yet a student would be suspended for wearing a
t-shirt featuring a cross, or for praying at lunch before eating.WE are the little green men now.
And as much as the general public is fascinated with aliens,
if you think about it, they are absolutely terrified of them.They think it’s cool to see a UFO, but the
thought of real, honest-to-goodness aliens from another world actually visiting
earth freaks them out! WE freak them out too; that is, if we’re living before
Christ like we’re supposed to. They are scared
of us and that is why they hate us.
1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore, preparing your minds for action
and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought
to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (ESV)
What do aliens travel in? Space ships, right?It takes a little while to prepare and outfit
a space ship, like the shuttles America used. But, once that ship was ready to
go and sitting on the launch pad, the astronauts were strapped in their seats,
life sustaining equipment ready and the engines were fired up with a resounding
Our Savior has been preparing and outfitting our space ship
for 2000 years now. And last night, He strapped us in, handed us the life
saving equipment we will need for the journey, His Word, and flicked the switch
to start the engines.That roar of our
engine was literally heard the world over when the results of the election were
Let’s continue with 1 Peter 1: 14-21.“As obedient children, do not be conformed to
the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you
also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for
I am holy.’ And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially
according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughoutthe
time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways
inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or
gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish
or spot.He was foreknown before the
foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of
you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave
him glory, so that your faith and hopeare in God.”(Emphasis mine)
Folks, I completely understand why you would feel depressed
and hopeless this post-election morning.You feel like we’re all doomed and you fear for what the future might
hold.I get it, believe me!I’m human too. But give careful consideration
to this: We are literally on the launch pad, strapped in and ready to go, with
engines roaring.We are SO close to
liftoff, I can hardly stand it!
Yes, there will most likely be some bumpy roads ahead.Yes, we’ve never traveled roads like these
before, and we are going to feel fear.Duh,
we’re human.God doesn’t expect us to
not feel fear.He expects us to trust
Him, even though we’re scared, as we keep walking with and living for Jesus,
one day at a time.
These days are going to get very dark, very quickly, and the
glow we aliens project is going to seem brighter and more irritating to the
eyes of those who are blind and accustomed to living in darkness.We are going to irritate the living snot out
of our co-workers and neighbors and lost family members, and if we don’t, we
had better double-check to see if we truly are strapped into our seat in the
vehicle that’s ready to take us home!
Chin up, people!You
have the most incredible secret mankind has ever been given since Jesus returned
to heaven.We are going home very, very
soon and when the engines actually engage, they will be… silent.Completely silent and that ship called Jesus,
will whisk us off the launch pad faster than the speed of light.And all hell will be free to break loose on
this degenerate, lost, blind, reprobate, wicked world.
Nah, let’em have Bronco Bama.Let them suffer the consequences of their
selfish choice.Sit back and let them
celebrate and stick their tongues out and dance around like a bunch of idiots
as they’re handed their Obama phones.Let them live in the horror of the soon to come police state.They wanted it, they’re gonna get it.
But WE aliens are going home very, very soon.WhooHoo!!! Our redemption draweth nigh!
