WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore
August 9, 2020
Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 3:4 “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God”
We are living in a world that is up-side down in its moral activities. Do you remember George Floyd? The individual that was supposedly murdered by the Minneapolis police, after which many riots and protests began. He was supposedly cooperative, he couldn’t breathe when the officer had his knee on his neck for over eight minutes, he said that he was not on drugs, which were all false. But, do you know that the police camcorder video, which was just leaked to the Daily Mail, shows just the opposite.
Floyd resisted arrest:
He said he couldn’t breathe while standing up breathing:
He refused to go into the police’s SUV squad vehicle because he claimed he was “claustrophobic” even though he was seen sitting comfortably in his own SUV just minutes earlier,
He asked police to place him on the ground and lied, telling the police he was not on drugs despite being high on fentanyl and met, and
He claimed his mother just died to try and avoid arrest even though she died two years earlier.
The media has been silent on this for months…they just promoted the wrong view for their own communistic viewpoint. What is happening with the Floyd murder case, anyway? There has been no news on it for months. What would happen to the BLM movement if Floyd was not killed by a knee on his neck?
And can you believe what happened in New York City this past week? We have for a long time said that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Jewish socialist Margaret Sanger, was a flaming hot racist. In fact, she was a proponent of eugenics, which is the belief that those with undesirable genetic traits should not be allowed to reproduce. We have taught this, but nothing happened. It was like no one was listening.
But now Planned Parenthood of Greater New York has admitted what we had been saying about its founder for years is true! State board chair, Karen Selzer, said that the organization will change the name of their building in Manhattan, New York, that is currently named the Margaret Sanger Health Center. She said:
“The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color.”
She further went on to say:
“Margaret Sanger’s concerns and advocacy for reproductive health have been clearly documented, but so too has her racist legacy.”
Margaret Sanger had quite a life. Briefly, she ended her first marriage, dumped her children on her estranged husband and fled to England from New York City. Upon arrival in England, Sanger had intimate relationships with sexologist Havelock Ellis, H. G. Wells, [the famous author] George Bernard Shaw [the famous socialist playwright] and others in the Fabian Debating Society.
After she spent a short time in England, she returned to the United States and explained that she was an escapee from an insane asylum. She got herself remarried to a Jewish millionaire, Mr. Slee, owner of a petroleum products company. She retained the name of her first husband, Sanger, after she married Mr. Slee. She maintained her sexual independence [You know what that means]. For more than 20 years until he died, Mr. Slee financed her activities, apparently without complaint.
Wouldn’t it be great if they believed what we have said in the past about their organization? Why don’t they believe that Black Lives Matter should include those black babies who are in the womb, too? Don’t they matter?
Margaret Sanger, a socialist, helped change the laws and culture of the world. Don’t you think that the whole world of birth control and unborn murder should be eliminated, or at least made illegal.
DESTRUCTION OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
A former civics high school teacher in Atlanta, then a staff preacher at Total Grace Christian Center in a suburb of Atlanta, founded his own church in 2008. His new megachurch, with Shaun King as its founder and pastor was called Courageous Church. As the congregation of Courageous Church grew, so then did King’s public persona. He left the church in 2012 after his fund raising was questioned as to who got the money. He kept most of it for himself.
Is he white or mixed? His birth certificate has his mother and father both white, but his mother told him that his real father was a negro. Would you say that she was correct?
Jeffery Shaun King (born September 17, 1979) is an American writer, civil rights activist and co-founder of Real Justice PAC. The former mega-church pastor-turned-citizen journalist has leveraged heavy doses of charisma into 218,000 Twitter followers and a column at the New York Daily News to chronicle instances of suspected injustices carried out by police in predominantly non-white communities. King counts a flurry of A-list celebrities and largely left-leaning politicians among his most ardent fans.
Now get this recent statement: Well-known agitator, and Black Lives Matter spokesman Shaun King claims that the next step in so-called “social justice” is to tear down all white people’s churches. White churches are little else but “white supremacy”.
“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.”
King is voicing exactly what the terroristic Black Lives Matter movement wants to do. They have already nearly finished taking down all the statues of white people regardless of what those whites did to earn a statue. Next, they will be coming to burn down your churches and outlaw your religion. The Portland Oregon rioters have burned Bibles. None of this is about “racism.” It is all about destroying the United States of America.
BLACK LIVES MATTER CONTROVERSY
And this takes us to what is happening today. I just can’t believe it. How could anyone vote for Joe Biden. He is an international criminal (see my past sermons). His whole family is criminal along with him. He is totally incompetent. Any vote for him, is a vote for Bernie Sanders (a communist), AOC (a communist), Ilhan Omar (a communist who gives her candidacy money to her “consultant husband”, Nancy Peloski (a communist), Chuck Schumer (a communist), Jerry Nadler (a communist) and the rest of the far-left Democratic Party.
It should be obvious that all the large cities in the United States have been run by the Democrats for decades. Many of the mayors, governors, senators, representatives seem to be more interested in keeping their power rather than keeping the people of America’s freedoms and liberties.
And then there is the popular Black Lives Matter organization that has swept America off its feet. Founded by three black lesbians, who were trained by hard core Marxists. They are/were organizers who really believe that black lives only matter if they are killed by the police wrongly. They don’t care about black lives that are exterminated by abortion or shot by other blacks.
So, who is against them? They are supporter by over 200 large corporations, many multi-millionaire athletes, many very wealthy entertainers, most of the politicians, bow the knee to them and have given them millions of millions of dollars. They are the politically correct organization that is communistic.
The Democratic mayors have their cities burned, their businesses ruined, taken over by the radical left, and then they allow the “mob” to take down many of the Confederate and other national statues. The National Football League will have two national anthems; the first one is for the blacks, the second one is the Star-Spangled Banner; the National Basketball Association will play two national anthems; one is “Lean on Me” while the other is the traditional anthem. The United States Baseball League plays the national anthem with all the players kneeling … well almost all of them.
Take a look at the following photo:
Twenty-nine baseball players on the San Francisco Giants team are kneeling, while only one is standing. All thirty Los Angeles Dodger ballplayers kneeled, plus the managers and coaches of both teams--all kneeling. Who is standing, and why are all the others kneeling? What is going on? They are kneeling to show solidarity with the Marxist movement, Black Lives Matter.
San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod was the only player who refused to take a knee during the national anthem Thursday, nor did he bow to the Black Lives Matter agenda. In fact, leftists are going nuts as the pitcher “took a stand” for America and blasted BLM by pointing out the glaring truth.
Sam Coonrod was the only player, manager, and coach on both teams who stood. All the others knelt. They gave their knee to Black Lives Matters, a Marxist organization. A recorded message from Morgan Freeman played over the stadium PA system as the players kneeled and held a black ribbon. Why did Sam Coonrod not kneel? Because, he said, “I am a Christian.”
Major League Baseball along with all the other professional sports, football, soccer, golf, race car racing, basketball, etc. are pandering to the hardcore leftists. They are also actively working for the Marxist Black Lives Matter.
Coonrod also explained that Black Lives Matter “leans towards Marxism [Communism] and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family.” He also said the he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.”
What would we have done? Would we have knelt or stood? When the odds are 1 out of 80 of your peers, it is hard to do. But if you are on the same side as your LORD God, you are not the minority, but the majority.
FUNERAL OF JOHN LEWIS
Then there was the death and multiple funerals of civil rights leader John Lewis. First of all, why did he have all those funerals when funerals were off limits? The inhabitants of this country who have died in the last four months have not had a funeral, except, of course, for John Lewis and George Floyd, who had a multitude of them.
Lewis died at the age of 80. Like George Floyd, his corpse was paraded in several cities giving him an outstanding send off. The media and the majority of politicians of both parties gave glowing reports of the civil rights leader.
And like with George Floyd, there was no mention of any of his bad points. For example, the media and funeral service didn’t tell of what happened to George when he was 16 years old. He appeared on the Judge Judy show.
George wasn’t the accuser; he was the defendant. He was accused by a black woman whom he had pushed to the ground, and then taken her car keys, and got in her car and attempted to drive himself home.
His motive for stealing her car was, he said, “I was going home from my girlfriend’s house and it was cold outside.”
The police began to follow him, and he eventually wrecked the car. Judge Judy asked him, “Who should pay for the wrecked car?”
Floyd answered. “If the police weren’t following me, I wouldn’t have wrecked.”
Judge Judy then said, “So, the police should pay?”
George Floyd answered, “Yes.”
Judge Judy then asked George’s father, “Should the police pay?”
George’s father answered, “No, he [George] should.”
The mainstream media didn’t say one word about the drugs that were in George’s body when he died either; drugs that either caused him to be defiant or ill, or both; which may have had an impact on his death. And his family are now multi-millionaires and much of the country is in ruins.
And what about John Lewis? His roots are filled with the movement of the communist party. Lewis himself wrote for communist periodicals, fronted for communist groups, received an award from a socialist organization; and has supported socialist candidates.
Lewis was a chairman in the SNCC, Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, which was a communist organization. He hated white America. His record was one of all talk and no action, when it comes to fixing the mess in the inner cities. But his supporters whine about Lewis being a civil rights “hero” fifty-two years ago. Lewis’ socialist solutions hardly make him a hero unless chaining his people to poor schools, fatherless homes, and generations of government dependency is heroic.
John Lewis’ hearse stopped by the Rainbow Crosswalks in Atlanta, Georgia one last time on his major funerals journey. This painted crosswalk is in Atlanta’s first gay neighborhood. Lewis, a Democrat who represented a Georgia district in Congress since 1987, was a longtime ally of the LGBTQ+ community. John Lewis was an early forerunner of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
Do you think that our God approved or disapproved of what John Lewis did in regard to the LGBTQ+ movement and opposing segregation? Crowds cheered and sang “we shall overcome” as Lewis’ hearse passed through Atlanta, stopping at the Rainbow Crosswalks at the intersection of 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue.
John had attended the American Baptist Theological Seminary as well as the Methodist Church.
CONNECTION TO THE METHODIST CHURCH
John Lewis was also a vice chairman of the Communist Party USA from 1962-1964. John Lewis, like many other radical Communist Democrats was birthed out of the Methodist Church. Lewis attended training sessions in the basement of the Clark Memorial United Methodist Church, which is associated with the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church. Clark Memorial United is the oldest United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
It should be noted that both Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren subscribe to the Social gospel of Methodism. Hillary was radicalized in the Methodist Church where her Communist and Luciferian mentor, Saul Alinsky, was also a member. Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and Saul Alinsky all were members of the Methodist Church? What a disgrace!
The social gospel of the Methodist Church is a false gospel of Secular Humanism. The Social Gospel movement is a Protestant Christian intellectual movement that was most prominent in the early 20th century United States and Canada. The movement applied Christian ethics to social problems, especially issues of social justice such as economic inequality, poverty, alcoholism, crime, racial tensions, slums, bad hygiene, child labor, inadequate labor unions, poor schools, and the danger of war.
Basically, Social Gospel is applying the teachings of the Bible in a psychological sense. Do good works, be a good person, help others and all will be okay. This is what the Methodists believe, so it’s no surprise Hillary adheres to that false doctrine.
Hillary Clinton discussed her Methodist faith and her dedication to the social gospel while speaking to nearly 7,000 women at the United Methodist Women’s Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky. She encouraged all Christians to help those less fortunate than themselves because “we are all in this together.”
Hillary does not practice what she preaches. She wants her liberal views to be forced on all of us. When have you seen her under a bridge helping a homeless person, out in a food line serving the hungry, or spreading her wealth she has accumulated? You haven’t and you won’t! It’s the old adage, “do as I say, not as I do”.
Yvette Richards, board president of the United Methodist Women, praised her. “She is the daughter of the United Methodist Church and the daughter of the United Methodist Women. We are paired together; we are connected. She is one of us.”
She promotes abortion, the murder of unborn babies. I wonder if she would support her daughter aborting her first grandchild? She embraces homosexuality and sodomy just as the Church does. She wants nothing to do with the real gospel of Christ. She is a sheep in the Methodist fold!
This should be a wake-up call to all those in the Methodist belief who have any true Biblical adherence to get out. Anything the Clintons are involved in is corrupt and a lie. Bill is mentioned in Ghislaine Maxwell’s papers as being involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s underage girl sexual island.
And add Elizabeth Warren’s name to the social gospel of the Methodist Church. Both Elizabeth and Hillary are witches. Witchcraft has donned a new mask of respect in many places. The perception of a witch being an ugly old hag has lost out to the glamour and deception of Hollywood. They no longer are portrayed riding on broomsticks, as you see in the TV series Bewitched. Books, movies and television have played a tremendous role in the acceptance and the reduction of fear. Hollywood is making witches more appealing to a very large and easily influenced audience.
An enchanting sitcom about beautiful, nose-twitching witch Samantha Stevens, who moves to the suburbs to be with her strait-laced mortal husband, Darrin. The series became a critical and popular success after premiering on ABC in 1964, went on to win several Emmys and became one of the longest-running sitcoms in ABC history. The premise was retooled for the 1977-78 spin-off ‘Tabitha,’ which centered on the Stevens' daughter and starred Lisa Hartman and Robert Urich. Lasted for eight seasons.
A half-mortal, half-witch teen copes with high school and her newfound powers in this charmer, for a time the crown jewel in ABC’s ‘TGIF’ lineup. The series, which is based on the Archie Comics character, and a talking cat, won many of America’s youth. Lasted for seven seasons.
Popular Aaron Spelling-produced fantasy about three sexy sisters who happen to be witches living in the eerie San Francisco house where they grew up. Since each had different powers, they worked in tandem to fight evil and protect the innocent. Lasted for eight seasons.
A cheerleader is chosen to battle the forces of evil as she weathers the storms of young adulthood in an imaginative series that blends killer writing and performances. Lasted for seven seasons.
The world of the Salem witch trials is explored in this drama set in 17th-century Massachusetts. Lasted for three seasons.
There are over 30 television shows that have appeared in the past 60 years that involve witches. These shows are part of the surge of Americans becoming witches. And there are a multitude of movies that also have as their core witchcraft and sorcery.
Witchcraft is one of the fastest growing spiritual movements in the country. Many are young girls and teens. It is inspired by the feminist movement, which is part of the New age Movement.
Elizabeth Warren believes that “…no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.” But raising the minimum wage won’t do it. They raise taxes and levy fines, enact laws to keep the inhabitants of the country poor and enslaved to them.
Elizabeth also says, “We believe in equal pay for equal work.” Elizabeth sits in an air- conditioned office and may work a couple hours. That is not equal. There are many hard-working people who should make 10 times what Elizabeth does and don’t! That is not equal pay for equal work!
THE MAYOR OF CHICAGO
Lori Lightfoot is the first black female lesbian Mayor of Chicago. She married a graduate of Miami University in Ohio, who also is a woman. Her name is Amy Eshleman. After graduating from Miami University, Amy worked for the Chicago Library for 20 years. The couple have been together for 16 years and got married the day same-sex marriage was legalized in Illinois. The two women have a daughter. How did they do this? Can two women produce a daughter? No, but they adopted one. The one they adopted is now 12 years old. Her name is Vivian.
They both walked in the 2018 Chicago’s Pride Parade and expressed much appreciation for all the diverse and loving that they experienced in the march. She has rejected any help from President Trump as her city kills itself off every weekend—mainly black on black shooting crimes.
Do you think that they are supporters of Black Lives Matter? They are big time supporters. Why? Because they are all abominations to our LORD God.
Shouldn’t all “Christians” be and do as Sam Coonrod (the San Francisco pitcher) did when he didn’t kneel to BLM. He said that “He was a Christian” and BLM was started by sexual deviates.
Why would a Christian obey what the queers are saying? Why don’t they believe the God of the Bible?
Leviticus 20:13: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
Wouldn’t the reverse be true, also?
If a woman also lie with another woman, as she lieth with a man, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
The world is believing the individuals who are an abomination to Almighty God.
The three founders of BLM are queers;
The main financial lender of BLM is a Jewish, lesbian queer who was paroled from her 58-year sentence by President Bill Clinton; Susan Rosenberg.
Lori Lightfoot is the current mayor of Chicago. She is married to another female.
Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Robin Roberts, Rachel Maddow, Rosie O’Donnell, Ellen DeGeneres, Sara Gilbert, etc. are all sodomists.
Bob Avakian, founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, told his followers in a statement on Saturday (8/1/2020) that they should vote for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
In the 1800s, after the Episcopalians of New England had built churches, the Unitarians infiltrated the Episcopalian churches. There were no restrictions on who could be members. They first pretended to be faithful Christians. As soon as the old Episcopalian pastor died, the Unitarians, who had infiltrated the church, voted their own ministers into the pulpits of the Episcopalian Church. The true Episcopalians left the churches, as they could not stand to hear the heresy being taught in their pulpits. In this way, the Unitarians stole the property and building of the Episcopalian churches in New England.
This takes us to the recent Supreme Court Decision on the Bostock case. The case will allow the churches who are still faithful to the Word of the Bible to be sued by those in the LGBTQ communities if these churches don’t hire them or if these churches preach out against them and their sins.
This is because most churches have a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Status with the IRS. Thus, they must follow the IRS rules. One of those rules is that churches can’t preach against “public policy”. Public policy is anything that the courts have said is legal. Homosexuality is now legal so the IRS rule says that 501(c)(3) churches can’t preach against it. So, the Supreme Court has ruled against the God of the Bible. The Supreme Court has said that no one can discriminate against what God says is an abomination to Him, because they are protected under the Civil Rights Act.
Remember that the serpents want the revenues (wealth) of our churches. So, here is what is going to happen. First, the serpents will file complaints with the Federal government and the Federal government will come against the churches. The churches that refuse to submit will have their properties taken away from them and given to the sodomites, or sold and the money given to the sodomites.
Second, the serpents will file lawsuits against churches that preach against them or refuse to hire them. And they will take the property of the churches that refuse to submit.
This will cause a division in many of the churches. The members who are more concerned about protecting their property will say, “We have to submit. We must obey the higher power.”
But the members who are faithful to Christ and His Word will say, “We must resist and be faithful to Christ even if they take our property.” But the faithful Christians will find that they are in the minority in most cases and just like the faithful Christians in the New England Episcopalian churches, they will be driven from their churches. If the faithful Christians try to invest in another new property, it too will be taken from them. So, this will ignite a small underground movement in America.
Our enemy (BLM) is attempting to destroy the Christian Church. Many “Christian” churches are not even meeting. Many are now united with other faiths. Many are now universal. Many are now saying that there is no Law of God to be obeyed.
In similar manner, Governor Newsom of California had recently ordered every Christian pastor to bow down and worship him. So he was enraged to find out that Pastor John MacArthur refused to bend the knee.
So, what has the governor done? The city of Los Angeles is threatening to impose a $1,000 daily fine if the church does not comply with Governor Gavin Newsom’s order for some churches in the state to be shuttered because of the coronavirus.
“The state has absolutely no power to impose the restrictions it is demanding,” Jenna Ellis, one of the attorneys representing the church, said in a report on The Federalist website. “This is not about health and safety it is about targeting churches.”
In mid-July Newsom ordered churches in 30 counties, including Los Angeles County, to stop holding indoor services, but MacArthur refused to comply, as Breitbart News reported, saying that Jesus Christ, not the state government, is the head of the church:
When any government official issues orders regulating worship (such as bans on singing, caps on attendance, or prohibitions against gatherings and services), he steps outside the legitimate bounds of his God-ordained authority as a civic official and arrogates to himself authority that God expressly grants only to the Lord Jesus Christ as sovereign over His Kingdom, which is the church. His rule is mediated to local churches through those pastors and elders who teach His Word.
Therefore, in response to the recent state order requiring churches in California to limit or suspend all meetings indefinitely, we, the pastors and elders of Grace Community Church, respectfully inform our civic leaders that they have exceeded their legitimate jurisdiction, and faithfulness to Christ prohibits us from observing the restrictions they want to impose on our corporate worship services.
“Now, the city of Los Angeles is punishing the church for its decision to continue gathering. In addition to fines and threats of arrest, Mayor Eric Garcetti has shown himself willing to use other tactics to keep residents from breaking shutdown orders,” The Federalist reported. “Back in April, he warned that he’d given the Department of Water and Power permission to shut off utilities for nonessential businesses that were operating in defiance of restrictions.”
John MacArthur has had enough of Governor Newsom’s commands. The pastor has said that he has overstepped his jurisdiction. He has no control over the church of Jesus Christ. Christ is the head of His church, not the governor. “We ought to obey God, not man” is what Pastor MacArthur has said. He is not backing down. Thank God for this brave pastor.
The government of California is in a battle against the Christian churches. If the churches don’t shut down they will be fined and their electricity and water will be shut off. My suggestion to Pastor MacArthur is if they cut your electricity and water off; stay open. Get portable toilets, get generators to create your own electricity; but stay open. Pray to our LORD God for protection and help.
What should we do? Who is the head of our churches? Isn’t the correct answer Jesus the Christ? Let us keep the commandments of God; for God will protect His church. Is God sovereign? Is it He that is sending hurricanes, fires, floods, earthquakes, riots, and the threat to be under far, far leftist doctrine?
Who are you going to believe? The mainstream media? BLM’s queer founders? Lori Lightfoot’s queer mayor’s rule? communist rioters and murderers? major league basketball, football baseball, soccer leagues? John Lewis’ legacy, Shaun King’s claim to destroy all the white churches.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
