Frank L. Hoffman Interviewed: God Bless America

Re: If we REALLY want God to bless America and the earth, GO VEGAN!

As regards the idea above...(not the vegan part...the part preceding it) You might find it of interest to note the following passage:

NKJV Daniel 2:44 "And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; IT SHALL BREAK IN PIECES AND CONSUME ALL THESE KINGDOMS, AND IT SHALL STAND FOREVER.

I understand this to mean that ALL human governments will cease when God's kingdom takes full control.

Why? Because despite the good intentions of individuals in positions of authority all these kingdoms belong to Satan.

Note

Luke 4:5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for [this] HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO ME, and I give it to whomever I wish.

(Jesus did not contradict that they had been given into his hands in the same manner as Job was given into his hands)

also,

2 Corinthians 4:3... But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds THE GOD OF THIS AGE has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

(the God of this age blinding people is obviously Satan)

AND

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and THE WHOLE WORLD lies [under the sway of] the wicked one.

(Obviously Satan again... THE WHOLE WORLD doesn't exclude any country)

AND of particular interest is this passage in Daniel...(an angel visits Daniel and speaks of opposition by a demon backing the Persian government for twenty-one days)

10:12 Then he said to me, "Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 "But THE PRINCE OF THE KINGDOM OF PERSIA withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, MICHAEL ONE OF THE CHIEF PRINCES, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.

(You can be sure Michael the archangel is backing God's Kingdom and not any of mans kingdoms or governments...So which demon backs the present administration unbeknownst to them?)

This Michael is the same as the archangel Michael spoken of in chapter 12 and likewise in the book of Revelation. He comes and aids this angel so that he might come to Daniel.

So Christians are IN this world but no part of the governments invisibly manipulated by Satan behind the scenes.

Note Jesus prayer at John 17

14 "I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because THEY ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, just as I am not of the world. 15 "I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 "They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

They're sequestering or sanctification comes from following Gods word. As a result, they can remain clean in his eyes.

You can both be confident that the Lords prayer WILL be fulfilled.

Let your kingdom come, let your will take place ON EARTH as it is in heaven.

"These words are faithful and true"

Rev. 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.

The sooner God's kingdom takes control the better.

All the best

Patrick
