I wish I could say that I do not believe that is the current state of affairs in America, but I do believe we are on the brink of losing the Republic. I have prayed and thought much about the condition of things political, spiritual, social, societal, economic, and in every dimension of our nation. In that time of reflection, I have concluded that our situation is not Republican or Democrat.
It extends far beyond who is going to occupy the White House for the next four years or four months. It is beyond simple ideological differences between conservatives and liberals. It is beyond the view of those who believe in Constitutional Originalism and those who believe that the document is living and evolving. I believe this is a battle for the soul of America and the Flame of Freedom. It is a battle to preserve our God-given inalienable rights. This is a fight between good and evil.
No, I am not saying that Republicans, Constitutionalist, Conservatives, or Donald John Trump are ‘good’ in the sense they are saints. I am not saying that those on the other side are ‘evil’ in the sense they are all diabolical and devious intentionally destroying the republic and stripping us of our liberties. However, there are those guiding the ships of both ideologies that are both diabolical and devious.
There is a commonality in the Deep State Proponents and the Swamp Denizens that believe those in power (elected officials and bureaucrats) are the rightful rulers of everything and everyone. That is frightening but it did not occur overnight and is not the result of the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President. It began long before that. The reality is that it began before the establishment of the United States in the late 1700s. It began in the eons past when Lucifer instigated a rebellion that drew one-third of the angels into his camp and resulted in his eviction from heaven.
For well over 100 years there has been an orchestrated, planned, and implemented agenda to shred the Republic known as the United States of America. The elevation of self to a preeminent place has facilitated the idea that each successive generation is smart enough to make the failed and flawed philosophy of Socialism and Communism work.
Human greed and the engendering of a mentality of entitlement have resulted in a society of brainwashed young citizens and some not so young. We have had at least three if not four generations of false information and historic revisionism promoting an Anti-Capitalistic, Anti-American, and Anti-Christian mindset. The indoctrination and constant bombardment by the educational system and liberal biased media have diminished people’s ability or willingness to think critically and engage in any deductive reasoning. We are in our current condition partly because the church has failed, the home has been weakened, and the government has become irreparably corrupt.
You may disagree but I see a concerted effort to use the COVID-19 paranoia and lockdowns to destroy small businesses. Why would anyone want to destroy small businesses but have a hands-off approach to mega-corporations and big businesses? I believe it is because if small business, which makes up the lion’s share of our economy, is destroyed then people become dependent upon Government.
Dependency upon Government means that the government or politicians and bureaucrats can dictate our lives. Why is that important? As long as the American Dream is alive, and people are allowed to think outside the box and fend for themselves producing wealth and a measure of power they are not controllable by the government. Big business has long been in bed with politicians and government and is part of the manipulation. I laugh when the liberals rant about corporations and the rich because the rich and corporations facilitate the agenda of liberalism. The Democrats have a long history of complicity with Big Business in control and destroying the mom and pop businesses.
It is imperative that the followers of the toxic liberalism of today’s Democratic Party and too many on the Right extinguish the flame of freedom. As long as we are allowed to ‘keep and bear arms’, maintain our personal and private property, and worship as we choose, we are not controllable. The moment we can no longer travel, defend ourselves, or provide for our own we become pawns of the benefactors. Those benefactors do not have our best interest at heart but control. Therefore, the flame of liberty must be extinguished, or they lose control.
We have transitioned from covert and undercover corruption and criminality by players in government to openly flaunting their corruption and engaging in their crimes. When we allow one set of rules and laws for the average citizen and another for politicians, we doom our Lamp of Liberty to become dark. What I see is a creeping darkness moving stealthily across the land. Can we prevent the total erosion of our liberty and salvage the Republic? I do not know, but I know that God is still God and His Promises are still true.
I am stunned at how easily the Government was able to make us sheep, destroy our economy, and strip us of our inalienable rights on numerous fronts. I am not surprised at the cries for barcodes, bracelets, or something to identify those who have been vaccinated. I am stunned at the willingness and even agreement of a large segment of our nation. I am even more stunned that men and women of the cloth who are guiding congregations of people would board that train and insist upon compliance. Has no one read the Bible, especially the Book of Revelation?
I am not saying that the vaccine, masks, or sheltering in place are the mark of the beast. I am saying that this is a test run to see what, how easily, and to what extent they can, without force, bring us into compliance. I do believe there are those who are devoted followers of this agenda who are willing to use force, even executions to achieve their goals. I do believe that this present darkness is birthed in the pit of hell and that unless and until the Body of Christ unites in prayer and commitment to God standing against this evil we will move deeper into the darkness. There is a point of no return when the Republic is lost forever. Are we there? I pray not but am concerned that we are dangerously near.
I beg everyone to consider the potential fraud in the election and what it will mean in elections to come. I beg everyone to consider the threats to our inalienable rights that are being proposed by the Left. I beg everyone to consider the horribleness of the genocide embodied in abortion. I beg everyone to THINK! If you earn something do you truly believe it is just and right for that to be taken and given to those who are unwilling to do the same?
We were given the Free Constitutional Republic where the Lamp of Liberty was lit and warned that it would be up to us to keep it burning. I quote a passage from Galatians 5. I know that its primary focus is spiritual, but it can be applied to every aspect of life. “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” We are Free in Christ and if we want to remain Free in our lives as Americans, we must not allow the Lamp of Liberty to be snuffed out.
I stand for Faith, Family, and Freedom and declare with joy and pride, God bless you and God bless America!
