The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

OBAMA BESTOWS AMERICA'S HIGHEST CIVILIAN AWARD TO DESTROYERS OF MORALITY
On November 20, President Barack Obama bestowed America's highest civilian award to 16 people, including Bill Clinton and Gloria Steinem.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom, founded by John F. Kennedy, recognizes individuals who have made "an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."
Bill Clinton was honored for his "public service in the White House." That would include, of course, turning the White House into a near brothel and morally degrading the office of the presidency in unparalleled ways.
As for the feminist Steinem, Obama commented that she is a "game-changer" who has helped women "afford the respect and opportunities that they deserve." What he failed to say is that Steinem is an avowed enemy of biblical morality. She has said that "you become a semi-non-person when you get married" and "a liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job after" ("Obama Gives Radical Feminist Medal of Freedom," Breitbart.com, Nov. 20, 2013). Of her own abortion, Steinem said, "I knew it was the first time I had taken responsibility for my own life."
Two more of Obama's Medal of Freedom recipients are homosexual socialist Bayard Rustin and lesbian astronaut Sally Ride ("Obama Honors Gay Socialist and Lesbian Astronaut," CNSNews.com, Nov. 21, 2013).
Also honored by Obama with the Medal of Freedom was Oprah Winfrey, who has been instrumental in popularizing the mythical god of the New Age. In the book Live Your Best Life, Oprah described her philosophy that everything is one, man is divine, and man can create his own reality. Her gospel is that man is not a sinner, God is not a judge, all is well with the universe, and I just need to surrender to the flow. In a nutshell, Oprah's gospel is ME. She says, "God wants you to love yourself. It starts with you." She says that gurus are here "not to teach us about their divinity but to teach us about our own" ("Why We Love Gurus," Newsweek , Oct. 20, 1997).
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (Isaiah 5:20).
