Are We Winking At Sin?

I said a long time ago that I would not bring politics into my blog but I am going to have to go back on that. This is NOT about politics it is about standards that we are expected to uphold. Not my standards, but the standards given us in the word of God. This is what I posted this morning on FB... I want to share it here.... ..


 God does not wink at sin (Acts 17:22-30) and if we are foolish enough to think that the sin which is running rampant in this nation will go unpunished then we need to think again.

    God is love yes, but HE is also just. Once we as an individual and as a nation know the difference between right and wrong then we are held accountable. If we think that the Father God is not watching and knows our heart and sees our vote then we are mistaken and we need to get into our bible and read.
   We as the body of Christ are responsible and accountable to HIM for how we vote. Many would say that this is not about Christianity or the cause of Christ but they would be terribly wrong. I am not voting my wallet or my thoughts of foreign policy, but both of which is in need of a strong and decisive man, but I am voting "as unto the Lord'.
    I want to be able to stand before my Father God with without the blood of innocent babies on my hands or the knowledge that I voted for a man that tramples under his feet the sacred institution of marriage between a man and a woman. Now you are free to judge me and many will do so, but I would much rather be judged by you than a merciful BUT JUST God.
    A vote for obama is a vote for all that is wrong and sinful in our nation. You decide.


This is a wonderful article that I found in Charisma today..take time to read it!

But His Favorite Song Of All

2012
A place of all things new. A year filled with wonder and excitement and expectations. Drawing closer to the Father and learning to hear HIS voice. Walking closer with HIM as I struggle to know HIS will. I will begin and in that new beginning I will sing, for it is in the praise of HIS people that HE dwells.
I was listening to my  music this morning as I worked and this song came on, it caused me to pause, it caused me to dance.
You see, we are spirits with a fleshly body and when our spirit man comes into contact with the Holy Spirit it reacts. It just rose up within me and I could nothing but worship. There is an anointing that cannot be ignore and it shows up in all kinds of places. Today, in a song... I danced.


Praise breaks the yoke of fear and shatters the bondage of despair.  It will calm the spirit of angry and dispel the darkness of loneliness. With the song of praise joy will come and you will find that peace will follow. The Holy Spirit of God comes wisdom and knowledge and understanding and all those things can be experienced just by the praise of the heart. 
I have some things that I need to overcome and I remember in the past years of my life, praise and a red tambourine delivered me. There is power in the anointing and there is escape in the praise.

I pray that year for you is  filled with the song of the Redeemed and .. I hope you dance.

----------- Listen, close your eyes...  do you feel that? That is your spirit man responding to HIM. To HIS presence.  HE is listening to hear you sing. -------



He loves to hear the wind sing
as it whistles through the pines and mountain leaves
And He love to hear the raindrops
as they splash to the ground in a magic melody
He smiles in sweet approval
as the waves crash through the rocks in harmony
And creation joins in unity
to sing to Him majestic symphonies

But His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothin' more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasin' to His ear
As His favorite song of all

And He loves to hear the angels
as they sing, "Holy, holy is the Lamb"
Heaven's choirs in harmony
lift up praises to the Great I Am
But He lifts His hands for silence
when the weakest saved by grace begins to sing
And a million angels listen
as a newborn soul sings, "I've been redeemed!"

'Cause His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothin' more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasin' to His ear
As His favorite song of all

Bridge:
It's not just melodies and harmonies
That catches His attention
It's not just clever lines and phrases
That causes Him to stop and listen
But when anyone set free,
Washed and bought by Calvary begins to sing

That's His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There's nothin' more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasin' to His ear
As His favorite song of all

Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Halleluiah, halleluiah
