Southern Baptist Convention ~ June 14, 2016 ~ St. Louis
President’s Address: Ronnie Floyd
Paul Ryan (Speaker of the House): “The stakes could not be higher.”
Message: The Stakes Are High – God gave Ronnie this message after twenty one days of fasting and prayer. In the midst of terrorism, we have called 1,000 missionaries home.
We want to save a gorilla and murder babies. Gay marriages are accepted. Rainbow colors fly over the White House. Our religious liberties in America are at stake. The Israelites were taken to Babylon.
13 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?
15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer,
16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.
We are here at the right time to accomplish the purposes of God.
If Satan cannot get us to do the wrong thing, he will get us to do the right thing in the wrong way. Both are sin.
America is in a crisis. We face either an awakening, or falling into an abyss. America is in an economic, relational and racial crisis. “All men are created equal.” Declaration of Independence. Dread Scott Decision.
1)Now is the time for Southern Baptists to come together.
John 17:21 King James Version (KJV)
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
