For some reason, the Hi-stats page that records visits to my former Talk Wisdom blog are showing searches for an explanation of the Lifehouse Everything Skit. My original post on this was done back in 2008.
Before I share a copy of that post, I wanted to say that there are so many millions of people here in America who are frightened over what they see happening via our current corrupt government, as well as the chaos, turmoil and wars going on around the world.
America used to be known as THE superpower (earthly speaking) – after all, when WWII happened, we came in and along with the allies conquered Hitler’s Third Reich rise of terror, Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor and their Kamikazee pilots, and during the Reagan years, brought the Berlin wall down; which led to freedom for the states that were under the hammer and sickle brutal control of Communist Russia (known then as “The Soviet Union”).
Today, we see what some are calling a “weak” pResident (I think that Ozero and his evil administration are complicit in the matter – recall 0bama’s off mic scheming? ) making “red line” threats that don’t amount to anything once crossed by the various enemies out there. Look at the awful track record! The BHO Badministration continues to allow the Muslim terrorist slaughter to continue in Syria! The recent invasion of Crimea by Commie and KGB thug Putin (as Charles Krauthammer mentioned – without even a stubbed toe against the Russian army – that came in taking over that formerly sovereign nation within the Ukraine) was countered by the pResident with silly sanctions against a few individuals. Is this any way to run the U.S.A.? No wonder people are scared, angry and confused!
However, I look at it this way. No matter what damage the BHO regime is doing in America and around the world, our Sovereign God is upholding our beloved Nation from falling completely apart.
The goal of this Soros “behind the curtain” billionaire wizard, with the ugly assistance of Iranian ValeriEVIL Jarrett who puppeteers BHO in all he says and does – IS to collapse America. Everything being done by this evil BADministration is for nefarious purposes. [Also see ValeriEVIL Jarrett part 2.]
I continue to pray that God will have mercy upon us and uphold our nation from complete collapse; and help us to get relief from the utter despair that Americans are experiencing today.
Now to the Lifehouse Everything Skit.
My original post’s explanation of the Lifehouse Skit:
The Message and Passion behind “Everything”
The drama focuses on the spiritual warfare being fought for our souls.
At the beginning of the skit, the young woman indulges in the pure joy and innocence of finding her first love in Jesus, as He shows her all the wonderful things He has done and has in store for her.
But this blissful moment becomes tarnished by seemingly harmless distractions, which turn into temptations and ultimately into deadly sins.
The fallen spiritual forces at work begin their relentless attack on the young woman, who takes her eyes off Jesus and sets them on the world.
She finds herself overcome by all the vices made to look so attractive in life: sexual impurity, greed for money, drinking, bulimia, and cutting.
The lies that she has been told about her worthlessness and inability to measure up lead her into depression, attempted suicide, and ultimately into a desperation that spurs her to once again seek her first love.
Only after the woman hits rock bottom does she remember the true source of her joy — a relationship with Christ.
But she’s not alone as she battles to regain the abundant life Jesus has given her. Unable to fend off the enemy’s spiritual attack on her own, she puts her eyes back on Jesus, who is waiting for her call for help.
Eager to step in and fight the battle for His bride, Jesus fends off and defeats the demonic attackers who are after her very soul and life.
We are reminded that Christ already won the battle for our souls on the cross, and that we have victory over our sins through our hope and redemption in Jesus.
It affirms I John 4:4: “You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
You see, salvation of the soul is an individual matter. It is between each and every human being and God’s Son, Jesus Christ. We cannot be “collectively saved,” as the leftists claim that they want to achieve. What they REALLY want is everyone collectively dependent upon their nefarious and evil government!
“Social Justice” may be “social” (more like Socialism=Communism=Tyranny); but it IS NOT JUSTICE!
Let’s examine the definition of the term, “justice”:
jus·tice [juhs-tis] Show IPA
the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness: to uphold the justice of a cause.
rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of ground or reason: to complain with justice.
the moral principle determining just conduct.
conformity to this principle, as manifested in conduct; just conduct, dealing, or treatment.
the administering of deserved punishment or reward.
What the left is attempting to accomplish, could more accurately be labeled as a “do justice” ploy with one caveat; their true goal is complete control over everyone’s lives!
to act or treat justly or fairly.
to appreciate properly: We must see this play again to do it justice.
to acquit in accordance with one’s abilities or potentialities: He finally got a role in which he could do himself justice as an actor.
But this current government does make us feel like the young girl in the Lifehouse skit! Americans today are feeling pushed, pulled, prodded, and forced into things that we never even dreamed would have been done by our government years ago! The BHO collective mantra of “spreading the wealth around,” “forcing individuals into a socialized health care system that MOST DO NOT WANT,” making claims for “equality” which are being interpreted incorrectly as equality for some, (i.e. abortion rights advocates, homosexual marriage advocates, contraceptive/abortifacient drug coverage forced on Christian or other faith based businesses) inevitably tramples on the free speech and religious freedom rights of others which are guaranteed in our Constitution!
The leftist idea of “utopia” is a fairy-tale! It’s something that cannot be achieved without suppressing, and depressing those who don’t agree with their world view agenda – most of which is evil – when you compare what they advocate. Most of it goes entirely against the truth, goodness, and righteousness included in biblical standards. Therefore, one side is allowed “tolerance,” while the other side is silenced, called disgusting names, unfairly judged, ridiculed, hated, sued out of business, and in some cases, killed for their religious beliefs.
I think that many Christians here in America are waking up to the fact that we need to stand up for our rights; otherwise we may lose them. God’s Word does not tell us to just lay down and “take it.” We are to fight for our rights – all the way until the time of Jesus’ return!
Ephesians 4 informs us how to walk in our faith.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
What’s more, despite the political “chains” that our nation is currently enduring, we are to continue our work and do as Paul stated:
for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
