We as believers need to realize that we are not going to agree as a whole until the Messiah is sitting on his throne in Jerusalem and Torah is flowing from Zion (Isaiah 2:3). We cannot be cynical about who YHVH chooses to bless. I disagree with the Chistrian church on many things, but I recognize Holy conviction when I see it. In turn, I know the Hand of YHVH when I see it as well.
What is unbelievable about our God, is how He chooses to carry out His will. Mr. Cathy was asked about what he thought of Gay Marriage. He replied with a completely Biblical answer and was thrown to the wolves of this world. He was slandered and was threatened with boycotts and being banned from entire cities. They stood firm and I can assure you they prayed. As the waves crashed around them, individuals who hold the Bible sacred and some who were tired of simply being bullied with what they should think gathered and planned to show support. In time, the day came in which the individuals in this country had to make a choice. Were they going to submit to modern sinful thinking, or stand firm in their beliefs and convictions? The response was overwhelming. YHVH chose to bless those who stood for His Word.
Chicken sandwiches seems to be the manner in which this country displays its true heart toward the Bible and its definition of marriage. Chicken sandwiches. While it seems absolutely ridiculous that so small a thing as a restaurant would polarize this nation, we have to look at the back story and the nature of the players in this tale.
Chick-Fil-A as a corporation observes the Sunday sabbath every week. While I do not share their definition of which day is truly the sabbath, I do share their conviction in the manner in which it is kept. As a Seventh-Day Shabbat keeper, I can't tell you how many times my family and I have wanted to go to Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday and remembered as we were on our way that it was closed. I have to respect an organization that tries to do what is good as written in the Bible at least from their perspective.
The World stood by and watched as thousands upon thousands took their time and money and gave it to a business that took a stand from its core against sin. While it is easy for we Hebrews, Messianics, Torah-Observant, and Israelites who keep Torah everyday to be smug and say that Chick-Fil-A is doing what we do every week in standing against the sin of this world, their unflinching conviction showed through and rallied people of like-mind and heart. As the world raged against the truthful stand that this organization took, many people in this country finally woke up and realized that they were being slandered by the Enemies of Elohim and decided FINALLY to do something about it. Maybe the words of the Apostle James are finally starting to sink in. "Faith without works is dead," (James 2:20) . In order to illustrate your beliefs, you have to DO something with them. Also, we are seeing the world level false accusations against the Body of Messiah in every facet that they exist, be it Christian, Hebrew, or Jew. I personally am tired of being called something I am not simply because I think and believe differently than other people. I sincerely hope th
I do believe that YHVH chose his servants, the Cathy family, who have been faithful to His word in word and deed to illustrate His blessing. Yesterday, I heard that so many people came to the restaurants in support that many had to close because they simply ran out of food. I would most certainly call that blessing.
