Jesus concluded His teaching in the Sermon on the Mount by revealing a yardstick by which we can measure the veracity of public figures like a minister or politician. He said in Matthew 7:15-27, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Jesus made it clear what we do reveals who we are, not what we say. Our actions are the fruit of what we believe! If a politician claims to be a Christian but acts like a Muslim, his actions betray his words.
This yardstick measures reality by looking at what men do, not just accepting all men say. If we were to judge the president and his political party by what they have done as opposed to what they said we would have to rethink any support! Nancy Pelosi told her party, they had to pass the healthcare bill to find out what was in it. The more we find out, the more the president looks like a classic closet-Muslim who is using America’s power of promote radical Islam in the earth!
Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through Jihad. They tax non-Muslims for tolerating their presence and implement this coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam. Obamicare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the US. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance and from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers Insurance “gambling,” “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned for Muslims. Muslims are specifically granted exemption from Obamacare’s mandated insurance and penalty taxes based on this and yet our hospitals are mandated to treat them if they walk in. Who pays for their care? Everyone else forced to carry insurance will be paying so Muslims can be treated without ever having to contribute. Obamacare is Muslim Dhimmitude in action!
As a Christian, I find comfort in David’s prayers when he realized he had been betrayed by his friends in Psalm 55:12-15 and Psalm 109:1-13. Psalm 109:1-13 says, “Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer. Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. Set a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is judged, let him be found guilty, And let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few, And let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow. Let his children continually be vagabonds, and beg; Let them seek their bread also from their desolate places. Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder his labor. Let there be none to extend mercy to him, Nor let there be any to favor his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off, And in the generation following let their name be blotted out.”
When I survey the damage done to America over the last three years, I can only memorize Psalm 110 and pray it as led by the Spirit! Psalm 110 says, “The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’ The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. The LORD has sworn And will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.’ The Lord is at Your right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries. He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head.” The Lord can lift up our head and I trust He will!
