Why would we fall into this category instead of just believing? Why do we have any doubt at all?
God will always do what He said that He would. There's a lie that says we have to beg God to do something for us. The truth is that it's all been done already. Jesus finished it all (John 19:30).
Watching Spiritual Realm
There are so many gifts for us that were already bought and paid for. The more you and I renew our minds in Word of God (Romans 12:2), is more promises that we can see come alive for us in physical realm.
We have to realize that what we see in physical realm is not real compared to spiritual realm. It is temporary and is subject to our changing it by applying Word of God…
Peter saw that when he looked to Jesus instead of storm. We should too. We can safely walk through storms as long as we're focused on Jesus. You and I can avoid sinking by having faith. We can grow in truth!
Apply truth in your life! Apply more and more and more of Word of God!

HITLER’S POSITIVE CHRISTIANITY… Written by Doug Krieger
Continued from page 1
The problem was created by Devil himself—The Cabaret Society of Weimar Republic (They never represented true Germany!). "We'd been maligned by every creeping thing imaginable upon our streets: Socialists, Communists, radical Unionists, Jews, Secularists, Liberal Theologians, Homosexuals, Raunchy Entertainment, ad nausea—and this upon our wretched economic woes and that ‘Paper from Hell’ (i.e., Versailles Treaty)." Now—the Devil would provide solution to aforementioned problem. He would provide solution through a man, a party, that would reach down to common man and pull upon his heart strings—upon that which is made to respond to highest ideals of man: His religious conscience would be springboard to launch a fully consecrated and absolutely committed people, sold out to one who could uplift and empower them. Thence, this resolution to Germany's defeat must be ensconced within language of power and persuasion—it must carry fervor of EVANGELIST, power of PROPHET, message of APOSTLE! Yes, convoluted—but done with such passionate skill, that unwitting and desperate would believe LIE. Indeed, a true LIE is so close to reality that its frightening resemblance obscures all semblances to truth! Ultimately, a lie told long enough, and amplified to uttermost, resounds with familiarity—YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL! This original deceit confounded our original forebears. This is no ordinary lie—it is THE LIE. Godhood, ultimate UBERMENSCH, is final destiny of German race—of Hitler's "Religion." But first, people must be prepared, until they realize their supreme destination and status as DAS VOLK! HITLER—I CAN'T BELIEVE HE SAID IT! (Hitler/Nazi Comments in quotes) "We demand liberty for all religious denominations in State, so far as they are not a danger to it and do not militate against morality and moral sense of German race. The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not bind itself in matter of creed to any particular confession." (Item #24 of German Worker's Party "Program" cir. 1920s) At earliest formation of Nazi Party, Hitler expressed his Christian support to German people and soldiers. In 1920s, Hitler's German Workers' Party (pre Nazi terminology) adopted a twenty-five-point program with clear intent to persuade German people that "positive Christianity" was in full conformity to "moral" convictions of Party—i.e., Party fully embraced morality of Christianity and that Christianity was viewed as "singular" in minds of that Party—Catholic and Protestants were considered as foundation of German Christianity in its fullness and jurisdiction (the Party embraced both as one). "MY LORD AND SAVIOR . . . IN THE BOUNDLESS LOVE AS A CHRISTIAN . . . HE HAD TO SHED HIS BLOOD UPON THE CROSS. My feelings as a Christian point me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them. This is God's truth! He was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through passage which tells us how Lord at last rose in His might and seized scourge to drive out of Temple brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for world against Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before in fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have duty to be a fighter for truth and justice....
"And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.
"When I go out in morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people is plundered and exploited." [Note, "Brood of vipers" appears in Matt. 3:7 & 12:34. John 2:15 depicts Jesus driving out moneychangers (adders) from temple.] Adolf Hitler, in his speech on 12 April 1922 “We were convinced that people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken fight against atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.” --Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 October 1933 Indeed, Hitler's speeches and proclamations, even more clearly, reveal his faith and feelings toward a Christianized Germany. Nazism presents an embarrassment to Christianity and demonstrates danger of blending "faith with politics." Do you find it "spiritually disconcerting" to discover depth of Hitler's hermeneutic? How about his exegesis of Matthew 3:7, 12:34 and John 2:15? Hitler's depiction of Jesus as FIGHTER, not as sufferer, is a distortion of Scriptural intent of this reading; however, without knowing full contextual nature of Word, one could (as Hitler did) surmise a MILITANT JESUS is in view, and not a suffering Jesus. It has been said, "the Bible can be read to say anything!" Examples abound: "Judas hung himself . . . go thou and do likewise!" This classic piece of cut and paste, though stupid, is precisely what many so-called expositors do with Word of God—Hitler was no exception. But, shedding of blood of Jesus as ultimate payment for "truth and justice and German way" is frightening and turns true Christianity on its head! Note that Hitler claims to be a Christian and, as such, he has a duty to his own people—he too, like Jesus, must be a fighter for truth and justice—he must rid Temple of moneychangers, of abominable Jews who harass his people, like Jesus did. The German people, according to Hitler, were being "plundered and exploited" and he would be NO CHRISTIAN if he didn't do something about it.....
