Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
People offer up many excuses as to why they will not come to Christ—why they won’t come to church with you—why they ask you to not even talk about Jesus.
Want to know what it really is?
They don’t want to turn from their sin.
John 3:19–20 says, “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed” (NKJV).
History tells the story of a castle-like prison in Paris known as the Bastille. They decided to destroy it, for it had outlived its usefulness. A prisoner who had been kept confined in a dark, dingy dungeon in this prison for many years was brought out. But instead of welcoming his new freedom, he begged to be taken back in! It had been so long since he had seen the sun; he was blinded by its radiance. His only desire was to go back and die in the murky dungeon where he had been a captive.
This pattern continues until eventually these people who hate the light become so hardened in their sin that they prefer the dark ways of eternal death.
As Oswald Chambers said, “Sin enough and you will soon be unconscious of sin.”
