On the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 my heart is filled with anguish and pain. The memory is burned into my consciousness and I cannot forget! My heart weeps for the families of those who lost their lives in this terrible event. Their pain has been exacerbated by the forgetfulness of much of America and most of our government. The most recent events in Afghanistan must be tormenting to them. The flood of unvetted Afghanis coming into our country and scattered across the land has to be painful for them and should be for all of us. Vetted refugees is one thing, but unvetted which opens the doors for terrorists to enter unimpeded is something that should never happen.
I refer to “Two Wars” but am not referring to Iraq and Afghanistan, I am on a completely different front and realize that some will call me an alarmist in what I will address, but I believe it is current reality and a future danger. We had a literal Civil War in America between 1861 and 1865 and from all historical accounts, it was horrific and incredibly divisive. In fact, for some, it still divides today and that is tragic. We have had more than a few volatile civil uprisings in America since that war including some during the 1960s that pressed us dangerously close to a full-blown race war and had the potential of becoming a second Civil War. Thankfully, they did not escalate to that point.
In more modern times, since the election of Donald J. Trump, there have been groups such as Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, ANTIFA, and Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. It has, largely, been one-sided but the heat of anger, the fire of animosity, and blindness of prejudice are being exploited by those who want to inflict a ‘death blow’ to our Constitutional Republic, the United States of America.
Sadly, we are anything but UNITED and have ceased to be “One Nation under God, indivisible…” Some would argue that is because there is not “liberty and justice for all.” But those arguments are frequently rooted in a blind bias, prejudice, and hate rather than concrete realities. That makes the issue even more dire. When facts and truth take a back seat to prejudice and hate, there is usually no resolution short of bloodshed. That I do not want! That I Resist with all that is within me.
The Two Wars of which I refer are The Coming Civil War and the Spiritual War that is now being waged in my beloved America. The original anarchist, rebel, and protester was Lucifer (the devil or satan) himself. From the time of his eviction from heaven and fall to the earth, he has waged war against the children of God, God, and everything right, good, and moral. He is, as is reflected in numerous passages of Scripture (Genesis 3:4-5; John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 11:3, 14; Ephesians 6:11; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 19:20 to list a few). Paul warned in 2 Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers will wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
The scripture of the blind leading the blind comes to mind because in this hour we are witnessing the deceived deceiving. No wonder both Jesus and Stephen could pray, “Father, forgive them…” Jesus added, “for they know not what they do.” You may not believe in God and consider those of us who do, as fools, but One Day, you will come face to face with the reality that GOD IS! It may come after you have experienced the destruction of Evil and suffered loss beyond your imagination.
I believe the devil, the great deceiver, has gained inroads into the minds of men and women, most of whom would be appalled at the idea they are being used by the devil. They have been indoctrinated by the media, politicians, Hollywood, and most of all through our Educational System.
That tool became readily available to the destroyers because we slept when we should have been carefully watching! Parents for the past several generations placed unwarranted trust in the Educational System and failed to carefully filter their children’s education or indoctrination. I am not declaring that All Teachersare bad, they assuredly are not. I Am declaring that the objective of far too many within the System has been to reshape the thinking of generations and thereby achieve the stated objective of Barack Obama, “fundamental transformation” of America.
Not only have parents been negligent but so has the Church or more specifically the Clergy. Much of the Church world bought what the liberal, progressive, globalist was selling and took a “hands-off” approach to matters of government or politics. We sat silently as the curriculum shifted to a revisionist position, stripped our schools of any offering of moral foundation and biblical truth. Too often, we lamented the change to our congregations but offered no clear-cut warnings or pathways to combat the atrocity we were witnessing, and our children have been deceived.
It is my firm beliefthat without divine intervention we are witnessing the demise of our Republic. I believeit is critical that we get out the vote, go to the polls and cast our ballots, inundate our elected officials with email, text, faxes, letters, and phone calls expressing our desires. I believe it is vital that we speak to everyone we have any influence with and to those with whom there is a door of opportunity, presenting truth, facts, and reality with civility.
I believe it is imperative that we demonstrate a willingness to listen and have an open discussion regarding issues, problems, and solutions. BUT I do not believe that we currently have the level of involvement, enlightenment on a large enough scale, or the manpower to stem the tide of evil without God’s divine intervention. That may sound “doom and gloom” to some, and all I say rejected as a result. BUT, please, please, please, Hear Me – I believe that we win this war if we follow some basic guidelines.
First, those who are given to prayer must become Intercessors. Without prayer, we will find that our efforts are like rain on a tin roof, noise with little substance. Prayer energizes with supernatural strength, endurance, courage, and wisdom like few other things we can do. Therefore, the first step in turning this tide is Prayer!
Second, we must Invest ourselves in the War! We will not do that until we fully believe there is a war and grasp the intensity and reality of that war. I declare to you, that if the Left succeeds in their proposed agenda, we will watch our Liberties and Inalienable Rights including Freedom of Speech, Right to Keep and Bear Arms, your Right to follow the Convictions of your Faith and demand at the threat of prison or worse, be taken from us illegally, unless we COMPLY!
I sometimes feel that my warnings are falling from my lips or my pen and going no further than my lips or the page upon which they have been written. You are not simply becoming involved in politics but the Fight for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. This is the Second American Revolution and could become the Second Civil War if the spiritual forces of darkness are successful in heating the pot to the point of boiling over.
Third, we must Return to our founding principles and our national moral moorings. Parents, you must reassert your parental authority and assume your parental responsibilities. You are mandated by God to oversee the upbringing of your children. Proverbs 22:6 instructs parents to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” That is not the government, the educational system, or the community’s job It Is Yours!
Pastors, you must once again become “Watchmen on the Walls” and Sound the Alarm when there is a danger. You must not only inform of the danger but detail a strategy and provide a shelter for the people to run to and to stand firm against the flood tide of darkness that is coming. We are not to hide behind the four walls of the church but take up the armor and weapons of spiritual warfare and Stand using those weapons to pull down strongholds. I realize that some may take exception to this strategy, but it is what I believe and if it resonates with you embrace it and join those of us fighting for America and for Faith, Family, and Freedom!
I do not vote for the Republicans simply because I believe them to necessarily be godly or of impeccable moral character. I vote for them because when I view the platform of the Democratic Party, I find it impossible to reconcile my faith with that party platform.
If it were only the issue of abortion, that would be enough to repel me and prevent me from voting for the Democrat, but if you want any hope of limited government, secure borders, Freedom of Speech, Religion, and the Right of Self-Defense, you cannot vote Democrat. If you have any desire to see the federal bureaucracies brought to a place of accountability you cannot vote Democrat. I pray that the blindness that has afflicted many will be healed and the scales and blinders removed. My prayer has been for a long time, “God expose the corruption in Washington.”
Please forgive me for this lengthy article which some will call Roy’s Rant, but please take to heart the dangers we are now facing in America and join the fight for freedom. I am concerned that we will see another 9/11 or worse shortly. It is time to awaken from our slumber and take our place in the trenches in the fight for freedom! America needs her patriots more today than possibly anytime in history. What Is Your Freedom Worth?
God bless you and God bless America!
