Is There Not a Cause?
By David J. Stewart
1st Samuel 17:29, “And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?”
The Philistines were the enemies of God's people, the Israelites. The Philistines sent Goliath, a giant who stood 9' 6" tall to challenge the armies of Israel. Goliath dared any man to come out and fight him. No one dare accept the challenge, because they were too afraid.
A young lad who cared for sheep in a pasture, heard of Goliath's boastful words against the God of Israel and came to accept the challenge. The other men criticized David and wrongfully accused him of only coming out to see the battle. I love David's reply, “Is there not a cause?”
David said, “Look, somebody's got to do it, so it might as well be me.” David told king Saul...
1st Samuel 17:34,36, “And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock ... Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.”
David had killed a lion and a bear to defend his sheep, and now he was ready to kill Goliath or die trying. David said, “Is there not a cause?”
There is a Cause to Expose False Teachers
I don't like exposing false prophets, especially individuals by name. But somebody's got to do it. The Bible commands all believers to “mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the DOCTRINE which ye have learned” ...
Romans 16:17, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”
Clearly, there are true doctrines and false doctrines, and the Bible tells us to identify those in our churches who are leading the sheep astray.
Titus 1:10-11,13, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. ... This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
The Greek word for “sharply” means “with authority.” The Bible is an authoritative Book, because God is an authoritative God; and THE TRUTH is authoritative because it is unchangeable, irrefutable and intolerant. Thus, it is to be expected that when we expose false prophets and rebuke them, that we do so in an authoritative manner. This makes some people very angry. Truth is hate to those who hate the truth.
Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
The following Scripture instructs believers to refute (Greek: elencho, meaning “to expose”) all works of darkness.
Ephesians 5:11, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Many Bible teachers today have fallen into the Devil's New Age theology, merely teaching people to open their hearts to Jesus Christ; but this is a false Gospel which brings the judgment of God.
Galatians 1:9, “As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
False prophets have butchered the Gospel in so many ways, going to one extreme or the other. Some people corrupt the Gospel by saying a person is saved by surrendering their life to Jesus; others corrupt the Gospel by teaching that a person has to try really hard to stop sinning to be saved. These are BOTH false Gospels. Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23), paid for by Jesus' literal, precious, blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). Let the Bible speak for itself on this matter...
John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
The Scriptures instruct EVERY believer to contend earnestly for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). When a person is a celebrity and has millions of fans following them, it becomes necessary to expose them if they are teaching a cursed Gospel, or leading people into apostasy away from God. False prophets MUST be exposed. That is EXACTLY what Titus 1:11 teaches... Whose mouths must be stopped!
There is a Cause to Expose Evil Agendas
Feminism, homosexuality, abortion and divorce are modern-day evil agendas in America. Literally, the Masonic run CIA funded the Feminist Movement. The government pays divorce lawyers. There are hidden elite powers behind the planned destruction of America. Egyptian pyramids and the all-seeing eye are being shoved in our faces everywhere we go these days. They symbolize the Luciferian occult (hidden) powers that control the world.
2nd Corinthians 4:4 teaches that Satan is the god of this wicked world. As such Satan uses occult inspired men, demon-controlled, Luciferian worshippers, to do his bidding. This is the wickedness in high places that Ephesians 6:12 says every Christian battles against. Sadly, the average believer is woefully ignorant of these things, not realizing that there is an evil agenda to destroy one's marriage, children, church, Bible, nation and soul.
Look around you. Satan has given us hundreds of Bible versions to CONFOUND us. Whereas God confounded men at the Tower of Babel to prevent them from going to Satan; today Satan has confounded men to prevent them from going to God. Corrupt Bibles mean corrupt doctrines, which means you cannot find your way to God.
Divorce ads are being shoved in people's faces all over the internet, and they're filing left and right. America is a nation of liars, with a bunch of ambulance-chasing lawyers telling women to “strike first” against their husbands. It is evil beyond description. Hell will be hot.
Homosexuals have plotted and planned their infiltration of society for decades. The television and newsmedia have been instrumental in making homosexuality a way of life in America. It's a way of abomination and shame according to the Bible (Romans 1:24-32).
Abortion is commonplace in America. It's unfathomable to think that over 4,000 children are murdered every single day in the United States, while we hypocritically boast and sing about freedom. It's all a bunch of brainwashing propaganda. America is so messed up that Satan has women thinking they're actually doing a good thing to kill their babies, divorce their husbands, and choose a career over motherhood. And then they need a heathen shrink to help them cope with life. Feminism has crept into America's churches and is now commonplace. Wifely obedience to a husband is a mere novelty nowadays, an option that few women are willing to obey (1st Peter 3:5-6).
We are all guilty sinners according to God's Law (Romans 3:19-23). It is only by God's grace that anyone can be saved (Ephesians 2:8-9). That is why it is so ridiculous that anyone would teach that salvation can be lost by committing sin. How can you lose something that is out of your hands? Salvation is of the Lord. Those who teach that salvation can be lost have a totally backwards mindset about God and the Bible. The mindset of a true believer is that salvation is a gift; having no strings attached, no disclaimers, no exceptions, and no obligations. On the contrary, a person who believes that salvation can be lost, has the wrong mindset that salvation is conditional.
As with all false belief systems, Charismatics and Calvinists claim to believe in salvation by grace through faith; while simultaneously saying that salvation can be lost by committing sin. They are in denial, making contradictory statements that cannot be reconciled with the Scriptures. Likewise, Catholics bow and idolize Mary, but deny worshipping her. They are liars. Others claim to believe the Bible, while denying the very inspiration of the King James Bible. Again, we see the deception and denial that Satan puts in the minds of men. Someone needs to speak THE TRUTH. Someone needs to set the captives free! “Is there not a cause?”
Young David saw the need, stepped up to plate, and was ready to go to bat for God. David said, “Is there not a cause?” No one else in Israel wanted to go do the job, they just criticized David for wanting to go do it. This is so typical of people in general, i.e., to criticize others who are getting the job done, while they won't lift a finger. Whiners never do anything but whine and criticize, and they are the reason why our country is in the mess it is today. Don't be a whiner, do something about it. If the people who whine and bellyache the most would redirect that energy into serving the Lord, what a difference it would make in our nation today.
America has gone to Hell. What most people don't realize is that it was all planned to happen this way, by a group of evil people who have plotted to destroy and ruin our families and nation.
What is an agenda? An “agenda” is something that didn't just happen, it was made to happen. Homosexuality didn't just happen in America. Our society didn't just decide one day that God created Adam and Steve, instead of Adam and Eve. Abortion didn't just happen because a women named “Jane Doe” wanted to murder her baby. Feminism didn't just happen—indoctrinating women to ruin their marriages, kill their babies, and pursue a career working as a man. These are evil Communist agendas that were MADE to happen. The evidence is solid, concrete and irrefutable. There is a cause to expose such evils and defend our nation. When our nation is gone, we will be slaves of the New World Order, just like back in Nazi-Germany, only much worse because of today's advanced technologies. Thumb-scanning will be the norm, and a transparent mark in the right hand and forehead, which will be needed to buy or sell anything.
The New World Order is as Philistine, and their agendas are as Goliath challenging the God of Israel. Who will rise up and stand against the workers of iniquity for the Lord (Psalm 94:16)? Who will go out to fight the giant and take his head off?
