I think its the highest form of pride to think that a political leader or his party can fix a world broken by sin. Every world leader to date, has tried and failed. Repentance opens our hearts to the Spirit of God, and allows is love, forgiveness, and grace to change us from the inside. Humanity needs Christ. Jesus taught, who you love you won't kill, steal from, rape abuse or lie to. This is call self rule, or Spirit rule. People like this don't need prisons or rehabs, which invite politics. Jesus taught us to give, this is the opposite of scamming, greed, and robbery. Jesus taught us to be faithful to our spouses and families, this protects children and keeps power hungry politicians from stepping in and mandating family issues. The Bible teaches that rules, laws, and mandates are needed for the lawless, but the gospel changes the heart and lifts mankind to a level of sufficiency and grace. Our world has seen every type of politician, now it needs to see men and women of God. Leaders with God in them, humbly obeying and serving with one ambition, to glorify God. Send us that man or woman, and we'll vote them in and pray God will hold them up.

The bible teaches that the world will end in an economic disaster, that will cause humanity in desperation, to turn to a false leader called Anti-Christ. Man's politics and wisdom will fail miserably. Jesus will come and prove once and for all, that God's way is and always has been the right way. Be wise, get on board with Jesus now, and serve him with your life. I Sam 12:25, God says, "if you do wickedly, you will be swept away, YOU and YOUR KING".
I was recently reading about a new High Security prison being built and got inspired. All over the world we incarcerated hundreds of thousands of men and women, who for what ever reason can't control their passions for crime, violence, and evil. Its also true that daily many people are powerless to control their appetites for drugs, alcohol, and perversion. It must be painful for God, to see what has become of mankind, made in his image.
The reason this inspired me is because, as a race, humanity has mastered so many things. Think about it; man has created massive ships to master the sea. What about space craft, planes and rockets, that master the sky. Skyscrapers, bridges and motorways have mastered the landscape. Large zoos that have mastered the animal kingdom. Its amazing the things that man has accomplished. Look at our many universities with great programs in science, medicine, engineering, agriculture, chemistry and computers. But with all of this learning and knowledge, humanity CAN'T master the inner man.
Greed has ruined the economy. Selfishness has destroyed families. Lust has caused pain, abuse, and sickness. Alcohol and drugs have killed and maimed millions. Racism and hate has divided many and caused war. IS THERE AN ANSWER?
Gods apostle Paul spoke about this condition in Romans 7:19-25. He said, the things I don't want to do I do, and the things I should do I can't do. The bible says our problem is THIS BODY OF DEATH (SIN), The only answer he says is Christ Jesus. The bible says.."Christ in you the hope of Glory".
Sacramento is the capital city of California. Herb Rubi has been pastoring a church here for a number of years now. Each time I visit to preach it's a good time in the gospel. This revival especially good because we had the Sunday night service in a local park. Visitors came out heard the gospel, and we saw a few in the services during the week. I was blessed with the quality of ministry in the church, and the vision the folks had to bring Christ to their community. Each of the services had a unique feel to it. There was joy, conviction, direction, hope and all the good things the gospel promises. Souls being saved is always the highlite.
I was blessed seeing the folks from Fairfeild come for a couple of the services also. The churches have a real heart to touch all of Northern California with the gospel. God is bringing people into the church from across the country to fulfill his plan for the city. As I spoke to people in the congregation, I could feel the faith that something is happening. This is what we prayed for years ago, for God to raise up local churches, with a heart to make a difference in their city. Sacramento is making it happen, one life at a time. Pray for California's capital city, as they turn to Jesus, may the entire state follow them into the presence of Jesus. Thanks to Sister Katrina for helping me with the photos.
