Re: California Constitutional Amendments - Religious Freedom

  1. Grace, peace and love from God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    Please pray for us.
    Ps 119:126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
    Ps 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
    Ps 119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
    Paul, the Apostle, speaking to the church in Ephesus said,
    Acts 20:26 – “Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
    28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.”

    The attack upon Jesus Christ and the Word of God has been steadily increasing with each passing day. It seems that the day is approaching, and is already here, when we as Christians, will be prohibited and prevented from declaring the full counsel of God’s word in this state and this country.
    Legislation is contemplated, pending, and already passed, (see attached), to make it a crime or hate crime for Christians from using all of God’s Word in and out of the church. It is considered a crime, in some places, to call certain behavioral actions a sin.
    The threat of persecution for stating that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation is even discussed now in some circles. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

    Isa 6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Send Us!!?
    I pray that Born again, evangelical, fundamentalist, Bible believing, Spirit filled Christians, will stand up, in love, in these last days, for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and His Word. There may soon come a day when we will be arrested for sharing the love of Christ and His precious Word.

    May our response be the same as Esther’s to Mordecai, “and if I perish, I perish.”God mercifully delivered Esther and the Jewish people, and I pray that by the power of His Holy Spirit, He will give us victory.
    1 Peter 4:14 “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”Phil 3:10 “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”.

    After much prayer, we are filing with the Attorney General and then to the electors, (voters), two Constitutional Amendments and Initiative Statutes.
    The Office of Legislative Counsel has entitled these Amendments and Initiative Statutes “Religious Freedom”. How appropriate? For what is at stake is exactly that: Our religious freedom, to worship, praise, share and teach about our great God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to rightly divide God’s holy Word in this great country.

    In brief the above amendments and statutes state:
    a) It shall not be a crime, hate crime, or otherwise unlawful for a person to use the Bible’s content as an authority, to speak, write, share one’s faith, etc., in any venue, or to communicate any view against abortion, sin, anti-Semitism, other religions, etc. in any communicative way, (speech, newspaper, TV, radio, internet, etc.), or in any public or private gathering.
    b) It also allows a person to use the Bible’s contents as authority to freely communicate, speak, witness, pray, publish, etc., and to freely communicate at any public or private gatherings, any view against sin, such as abortion, homosexuality, etc. in any public or private gathering, or in certain other places and circumstances.

    The legislative counsel’s office said I must be specific in listing the items, which is why I listed various media, communication, sins, etc.

    The confirmation, of the necessity of these amendments, from pastors and other Christians, has been encouraging, to say the least.
    One dear brother wrote: “Thank you, Bro. I am impressed with the Thoroughness and breadth of your wording. Would to God that this would be included in the Constitution.
    When I think of the efforts to expel God from our culture it awes me
    that God is so patient and longsuffering. Blessings to you Bro”.

    Many people are grieved in their spirit as they witness the erosion and abridging of our First Amendment U.S. Constitutional rights of freedom of religion, speech, or of the press, to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ and the full counsel of God’s Word.
    We are faced with the loss of our 14th Amendment rights, which states: “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    May the Lord help to safe guard us and these precious Constitutional liberties.

    And may our prayer be the same prayer of Nehemiah:
    Neh 6:15-16 “So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.
    16 And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.”

    Please pray for God’s will, His wisdom, His Holy Spirit to help and direct our every step. May all we do, glorify our dear Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and our Heavenly Father who in His great love gave, and sent His Son Jesus to die and shed His blood for us and our sins and was raised bodily from the dead.
    Phil 2:11 “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

    Perhaps, we have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.
    Est 4:13-14 Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews.
    14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

    Thank you and God bless you.

    In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

    2 Cor 4:5-6 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

    Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
