Hello, and welcome to Faith is Hope,
So, let me ask all of you one question; are you “woke” or awake?
There really is a huge difference. If you’re awake you can see what’s going on in the streets of our cities, our communities. You see and hear the lies being taught in our schools and colleges. You see what our once-trusted media and government are doing. If you’re awake you can see and hear everything that’s going on around you. And, if you’re awake, you probably find what’s going on not only offensive but ungodly.
But, if you’re “woke”. If you’re “woke” you only see yourself. You put yourself above and before everything, and everyone else. For some reason, people who call themselves “woke” believe that they’re better, smarter, and morally superior to everyone else because they believe the world revolves around them. And anyone who questions their superiority is an extremist, a fascist, a racist. An anti-government far right nazi member of the KKK. You’re evil, You’re dangerous, and a threat to society and democracy. And you don’t deserve to exist.
In Exodus chapter 20 starting at verse 1 God spoke these words.
1. I am the Lord your God, You shall have no other gods before me
2. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord, your God am a jealous God,
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
6. You shall not murder
7. You shall not commit adultery
8. You shall not steal
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
10. You shall not covet.
If you look at everything the “woke” left is telling people it goes against every one of God’s ten commandments. These “woke” individuals put themselves above and before everyone else. They have raised themselves up to sit on God’s throne. I mean think about this. If a teenager doesn’t feel comfortable in their body, no teenager feels comfortable in their body. But if you don’t feel comfortable in your body then God must have made a mistake. And since it’s your body, and you know more about your body, and your feelings then you can just change your gender. But you can’t. No one can change their DNA. Our DNA is determined at conception. Oh, sure you can change your looks, but that’s nothing more than telling yourself, and all those around you a lie. Let me ask you this, the “woke” go around telling people that you can change your gender. There are drugs and surgery you can have to alter your body. But what happens if later in your life you decide that you made a mistake, that you really are the biological gender that you were born as? You can’t change it back, you can’t reconstruct those parts of your body. Where are the “woke” Satanists then? They’re lining up to attack you. How dare you confront those who are morally superior. They label you inferior because you didn’t bow down to those who are superior to you.
These radical “woke” leftists tell people that it’s okay to steal because you’re oppressed. That it’s okay to murder an unborn child because it’s your body. That parents have no right to speak out about what their children are taught. Even though children are a gift from God, God instructed parents on what to teach their children. Proverbs 22: 6; “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Deuteronomy chapter 6 starts at verse 6; “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”
The “woke ” believe that being a Christian, and going to church makes you a white supremacist, a radical member of an oppressive hate group. That somehow Christians exclude or condemn others. But that’s the lie that the radical far-left woke children of satan want you to believe. Who has God excluded? Who has Jesus condemned? No one. Think about this for a minute. If we are all created in the image of God, and if God gave his only begotten son to the world as the only true sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. Why would God want any of his children to be excluded from heaven? Does God exclude or hate anyone, he hates sin. God gave us his son so that we could have a way back from sin, from the death of sin. That’s why Jesus gave his life for all of us, so we could be forgiven and receive salvation. Jesus didn’t give his life just for the Jews, or the Gentiles. He gave his life to everyone who will come to him and accept the gift that he offers all of us. Life. God excludes sin from being in his presence. God condemns sin. Jesus invites the world to come to him. Jesus doesn’t condemn us, he forgives us and all our sins.
Have you heard that saying; you have to “go along, to get along”? Well, before you decide to go along, to get along, you might want to find out where they’re going. Because where the radical woke with their anti-God, anti-Christ agenda is going, is to hell. And you don’t want to go there. We can’t stand up for truth, stand up for God, and bow down to the lies of satan. In Matthew chapter 7 starting at verse 15; “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Everything that we think, say, and do are the fruits of our heart, mind, body, and soul. And we will be known by God, by Jesus, by the Holy Spirit, and by others by those fruits.
Now jump down to verse 21 “Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?” And then will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”
Jesus is telling us, I will open my arms to everyone. I will die for you. I will wash your sins away with my blood because God will not accept your sins. God loves each and everyone one of us. It’s OUR SINS that God doesn’t love. But that’s not what satan wants you to know. That’s not what the “woke” agenda of satan wants you to know. They want you to believe that because you sin God hates you. Think about that. If you hated your brother, would you sacrifice your son to save him? My God people, God has offered all of us the chance to come to him, through his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ has offered all of us the chance to come to God the Father through his sacrifice; the shedding of his blood, his death, and resurrection to the right hand of God the Father.
And, because of the lies of the world, the world attacks you. It persecutes you, even to death for his name’s sake. But Jesus said in Matthew chapter 16 starting in verse 25; “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming into his kingdom.” That last line is for all of you who think that you will be raptured away and somehow escape the tribulation. Don’t be deceived.
This “woke” agenda, this “woke” ideology, all these far-left radicals spewing this evil are nothing more than mouthpieces for satan. The hate, anger, chaos, and confusion that flows from their mouths are like the venom of a serpent. The serpent is satan, and his agenda is the death and destruction of all that God has created, including each of us, if we let him. And satan is using the world to do it. You can follow the world, or you can follow God. But you can’t follow both.
So, are you “woke”, a mouthpiece of satan, or are you awake, to what God created you to be?
Hey, I’m Dave – I’ll see you at the Rest Area.
