    Why the heavenly robes are white

    ‘These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’ Revelation 7:14
    SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: 1 Thessalonians 2:13–3:5

    I do not think that the text refers to some one great persecution, but to the great conflict of the ages in which the seed of the serpent perpetually molests and oppresses the seed of the woman. The strife began at the gates of Eden when the Lord said to the serpent, ‘I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.’ Satan takes care to nibble at the heel, though his own head has been broken by our great Lord. There is an hereditary conflict, a great tribulation, always to be suffered by the saints below, for ‘as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.’

    The enmity takes all sorts of shapes, but from the beginning even until now it is in the world. The white robed ones had come out of that continuous and general conflict uninjured, like the three holy children who came out of the furnace with not so much as the smell of fire upon them. Some of them had been slandered: men of the world had thrown handfuls of the foulest mud upon them, but they ‘washed their robes and made them white’. Others of them had come out of remarkable temptations from men and devils: Satan himself had poured his blasphemies into their ears, so that they truly thought they should themselves blaspheme; they were tried by the most defiling of temptations, but ‘they overcame … by the blood of the Lamb’, and were delivered from every polluting trace of the temptation by the efficacy of the atoning sacrifice. Some of them were cruelly persecuted and trodden down as mire in the streets, yet they rose to glory white as snow. They went through fire and water, wandered without a certain dwelling-place, and were made to be as ‘the offscouring of all things’, but they came uninjured and unspotted out of it all.

    FOR MEDITATION: Tribulation cannot separate Christians from Christ’s love, but in it we through him can be ‘more than conquerors’ (Romans 8:35, 37). It is unnatural to seek tribulation, but in it the Christian can glory (Romans 5:3), be patient (Romans 12:12), be comforted (2 Corinthians 1:4) and rejoice (2 Corinthians 7:4).

  • House Passes National Defense Authorization Act

    For Immediate Release: September 23rd, 2021
    Contact: Cassandra Sebastian (719) 520-0055

    Washington, D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R.4350, the Fiscal Year 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, with the support of Congressman Doug Lamborn. The bill will fund the Department of Defense with a topline of $778 billion (including nuclear activities at the Department of Energy) throughout FY22. Upon passage, Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:

    “This bill will provide our warfighters in harm’s way with the resources they need to deter conflict or win it decisively if deterrence fails. That said, there are many provisions conservatives will find troubling, and I am dedicated to removing them in Conference Committee with the Senate. As President Biden’s reckless and nonsensical foreign policy blunders sow chaos abroad and endanger American interests, this legislation strengthens our military readiness. It also continues the Department’s much-needed modernization efforts to deter or defeat our increasingly aggressive near-peer competitors. Although I strongly disagree with several provisions in this bill, I could not vote against legislation that is vital to the needs of the Fifth Congressional District and our armed forces. For this reason, I was pleased to vote YES for the NDAA.”

    Congressman Lamborn was able to secure over 40 provisions in the base text of the bill, and added an additional 16 provisions as amendments during the committee markup and on the House Floor.

    This bill:
    -Prohibits U.S. Space Command from locations until reviews of the basing decision by the Government Accountability Office and DOD Investigator General’s Office are completed;
    -Creates a Space National Guard (Colorado has the most Guardsmen conducting space missions of any state in the Union);
    -Reverses the reckless defense budget proposed by the Biden administration which did not even keep up with inflation by adding $25 billion to the topline to fully fund the majority of the Services’ and Combatant Commanders’ Unfunded Priority Lists;
    -Authorizes a 2.7% pay increase for service members;
    -Begins holding the Biden administration accountable for their Afghanistan withdrawal fiasco (over 20 provisions on Afghanistan accountability);
    -Provides over $300 million for collaborative U.S./Israel missile defense programs;
    -Establishes administrative, medical, or religious exemptions to the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine for members of the Armed Forces, including antibody tests;
    -Prohibits labeling service men and women “extremists” for their conservative political beliefs and disciplined for their online/social media activity;
    -Provides over $34 million for military construction projects in the district, including a vehicle maintenance facility for U.S. Air Force Academy and a fitness center on Schriever Space Force Base;
    -Requires the Army to produce a plan for demilitarizing the Pueblo Chemical -Depot and responsibly returning it to the community;
    -Develops of a plan to identify the remains of the remaining unidentified servicemen who perished on the USS Arizona;
    -Enhances DOD use of commercial satellite imaging;
    -Directs the Chief of Space Operations to develop a long-term plan for maintaining American space dominance over the next ten years, including what new capabilities are needed to compete against Russia and China in space successfully;
    -This requires USSF to develop a plan to establish propellant reserves in outer-space to dramatically enhance the capabilities of our space assets;
    -Expands and increases the capacity of the satellite control network through public/private partnerships;
    -Amends the bylaws of the Board of Visitors of each of the three military service academies to allow the members to call a meeting at any time in response to the Biden administration illegally suspending BOV meetings and firing the Trump appointees;
    -Fully funds the nuclear triad modernization;
    -Fully funds the defense of Guam;
    -Authorizes $6.2 billion for the Pacific Deterrence Initiative to deter China;
    -Calls for a report on how to mitigate space debris;
    -Strengthens and maintains the Missile Defense Agency’s unique acquisition authorities.

  • France says “non!” to gender ideology!

    In an article published in the French newspaper L’Express on September 20, 2021, more than 50 signatories expressed grave concerns about how gender ideology is influencing gender-questioning children and leading to their medicalization.

    Several French-speaking Genspect parents have kindly provided a translation, which we reprint below.
    Sex change in children: “We can no longer remain silent in the face of a serious societal shift”

    About fifty psychologists/psychiatrists, doctors, and intellectuals speak out against the “ideological hold on children’s bodies” made in the name of the emancipation of the “transgender child.”

  • SHOULD WE STILL HONOR OUR PARENTS IF THEY ARE ABUSIVE?
    Bible Study / Daily Devotional
    Daily Devotions
    Average reading time is about 5 and a half minutes
    Amazing Facts Audio Daily Devotional
    All of the commandments are a reflection of God’s loving character, so I don’t believe we can safely ignore any of them, regardless of the circumstances.

    However, we need to understand what honoring our parents really means. It doesn’t necessarily mean condoning all their actions. Abuse in any form is wrong, evil, and against the principles of Scripture. That said, there is a certain inherent respect that should always be shown to a parent. Even when we disagree with them, we can do it respectfully.

    I do believe that where abuse is involved, a person can respect a parent and still take action against that parent, such as the time King Asa removed his mother from power because she had set up an idol (2 Chronicles 15:16). Obviously, if a parent asks you to break one of God’s commandments, you should decline. God must be honored above a parent.

    Sometimes it might be necessary for adult children to keep a distance for a time, especially if the parent continues the abusive behavior or if you’re clashing continuously. Separation is also appropriate when parents are meddling, perhaps trying to interfere in the raising of a grandchild or in the marriage (see Genesis 2:24).

    However, we should avoid cutting off all ties with our parents if it’s possible to retain some type of cordial relationship. “I never want to see you again,” is pretty harsh and usually unnecessary. People change—they change and we change. As a Christian, you want to have a redemptive relationship and learn how to resolve conflict.

    Being a Christian means sometimes you have to be kind and loving to people who aren’t lovable. Jesus said, “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you” (Matthew 5:44). Through the grace and power of Christ, the Christian can show mercy even to those who “spitefully use” them.
