By Reverend Austin Miles

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA (ANS) -- "Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God." 3 John 11
"The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul." Proverbs 29:10
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John10:10
"He that lives by the sword, dies by the sword." Matthew 26:52
Scripture for secular America to consider:
Deuteronomy 28: 43: "The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low."
Scriptures for Christian consideration:
Deuteronomy 28:47: "Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
Deuteronomy 28:48: "Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
Deuteronomy 28:49: "The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
Deuteronomy 28:50: "A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young:
Deuteronomy 28:51: "And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
Deuteronomy 28:52: And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land; and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all the land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee."
Timely Scriptures that should not be ignored. It is not too late to reclaim our faith and commitment and the ultimate victory. To not do so is to face defeat.
