POLICE STATE, BANANA REPUBLIC – Demise of The Republic…


What I am going to say may infuriate some, trouble others, and get an acknowledged Amen from a few.  I believe that I see all the earmarks of America being ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a Police State, Banana Republic, and the demise of our Republic.  I pray that I am wrong, but I do not believe I am.  I believe I see the handwriting on the wall and the proof is in the pudding if we care to observe and are willing to honestly address what is going on.

Did you ever dream that you would see a wall or fence with razor wire atop it surrounding the Capitol in America?  Did you ever envision a time when there would be a virtual quarantine of the entire nation, as we have witnessed over the past year?  If you envisioned that did you envision it with almost no pushback from the populace and almost sheep-like or lemming following of the public to the edicts, directives, and orders?  Did you ever dream that we would endure that lockdown for more than a year, watch our electoral system be dismantled, and our borders eradicated?  I did not and I have seen some very dire things in my spirit over the past decade or so.

The intense hatred exhibited by the Left and some on the Right for the man Donald John Trump for over four years and continuing is beyond anything I ever dreamed I would witness in America.  The power grab by local, state, and national officials during the pandemic panic are eerily similar to those of Police State Banana Republics stripping citizens of the Freedoms they are deemed to have a right to and have enjoyed.  What I am seeing in America sends shock waves down my spine and causes me more trepidation than I can muster words to describe.  I do not live, in fear, but I am petrified for my nation!

We have witnessed riots, looting, the takeover of government facilities by BLM, ANTIFA, and other Leftist groups with nothing more than crickets from the media and the Democrats in Washington.  We have heard the calls to ‘defund the police’ and watched the incredible chaos and destruction that ensued as the police were hamstrung in the carrying out of their assigned duties.  We have watched citizens forced into facilities that almost guaranteed their deaths by Governors such as the tyrant from New York.  It is deeply troubling, and I wish I could say, the wave is past, and we are returning to normal.  We are not!  We are heading down the road of despotism and the implementation of a Police State making us another Banana Republic run by an Oligarchy or a Dictator.  America, imagine that!

If anyone dares to question the 2020 Election, they are deemed an insurrectionist, anarchist, domestic terrorist, and un-patriotic.  But the Democrat-controlled Congress can move to strip a Republican of their duly won seat in Congress because they don’t like the outcome and deem that justifiable.  We have seen the Guam national Guardsmen march to the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as a demonstration of their claim of the legitimacy of Guam as a U.S. entity.  We have witnessed the complete and rapid overturning and de-legitimizing of all Trump policies both domestic and foreign.  It is troubling!

We have a transsexual at the highest level in the Health and Human Services Department.  We have the encouragement and demand that there be a re-imaging of the police in our major cities.  We have observed the non-enforcement of our federal immigration laws and law that pertain to our national security.  We have watched as the Woke, Revisionist, PC Police, and Cancel Culture attempt to sanitize our history by taking down statues they dislike and burning history books they deem lacking the message of their woke-ness.  We have observed our educational system revamped so that nothing of our true history is taught and only the agenda of the Police State is taught.

This is not simply an attempt to change a few things and make adjustments in our history or direction. This is a war on our culture, conservatism, the constitution, on white men of European descent, and on the Christian Faith that does not embrace the new biblical interpretations of the adherents of the Woke proponents. 

Our Founders were keenly aware of the requirement of morality and reason in the pursuit of ‘Keeping the Republic’ and ensuring it did not become another Despotic Police State Banana Republic.  They are summarily dismissed by the Left as is the Constitution when it clearly restricts them.

For example, in his First Inaugural Address, George Washington made this connection quite forcefully, including a broad allusion to the Bible:

“[T]here is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained [see Proverbs 14:34]: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

Likewise, President John Adams made this connection explicit:

“We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by morality and Religion. Avarice, Ambition Revenge or Gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a Whale goes through a Net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Simply put, a Constitution for a free people, necessarily assumes they will exercise a degree of self-control that doesn’t take place in other societies.  The drift and shift away from morality, honesty, and integrity destroy the social fabric of a nation. It lends itself to disorder in everyday life.  It opens the door for sexual license, laziness, dissipations of every kind, heightened criminality, perversions, diluted respect for private property rights, and disdain for acquiring truth and knowledge.  That allows the nefarious seekers of transforming America into a Police State the path to achieving that objective.

We are facing the dangers of H.R.1 which seeks to provide the pathway to one-party control of our government and legitimized electoral fraud.  H.R.5 would legitimize the federal government’s definition of sexuality rather than science, history, biology, or the Bible.  Those two bills defy human reason and are in direct conflict with our Constitution and the Bible.  Everything is dumbed down to make the lowest level student equal with the achievers. That will translate into slothfulness in the workplace and the destruction of our Free Market System of Economics.

The time is coming when the federal government will seek to tell us what we can eat, what we can wear, what we can drive, where we can live, work, and travel.  They will seek to monitor what ministers preach to their congregations and close the doors of the violators and incarcerate the ministers who object.  You may insist that cannot happen in America because it would cause another revolution.  I say, “You are not watching what is happening.”  The dismantling of our military the federalizing of law enforcement provides the government a formidable force to quell any uprising by poorly organized citizens. 

We would need another group of leaders like George Washington, John and Sam Adams, James Madison, Thomas Paine, and Benjamin Franklin to emerge.  Do we have that?  If not, America’s days may well be numbered as the Free Constitutional Republic.  I pray that I am wrong.

What are we to do?  We are to Seek God with a Whole Heart and return to our moral moorings as a nation.  We are to Seek God with our Minds and become informed biblically, historically, and societally.  We are to Seek God with our All and invest ourselves in the fight for Freedom.  We are engaged in a war for Faith, Family, and Freedom, will you enlist?

God bless you and God bless America!

AMERICA’S ILLNESS IS IT TERMINAL?


Yes, I said terminal illness, and that will not be received well by some, but it is what I see and hear in my heart of hearts.  The terminality of which I speak does not mean that America cannot be healed and revived.  Rather, it means that America cannot and will not survive if we continue the path we are on. 

I have spoken for many years on some things that could cause America to exit the stage of World Superpower and become more of a follower nation than a leader.  Again, I am bullish on America and patriotic to my core, so don’t assume that I am folding my tent and washing my hands of this Republic.  I will fight for her as long as I draw breath.  That is an absolute!  Yet, I see the signs of terminal illness in our nation. 

When a nation abandons God’s Word, His Righteousness, and Holiness you get what we are seeing in America today.  The sacrifices to our modern Baal in abortion reveal a moral breakdown that produces death, not life.  The political correctness, the woke mentality, the cancel culture, the insistence on ethnic wars, and the assault on the Bible, Christianity, the home, and marriage reflects a mental, moral, and spiritual condition that can only lead to decline, declension, and judgment.

The endorsement by this administration regarding biological males competing in women’s sports is not an example of inclusiveness but the expulsion of reason and sanity.  It is an affront to the Bible and God Himself.  It is reflective of a condition of heart and mind that dates back to the fall of Lucifer from Heaven and the repeated failures of man throughout history. 

We are witnessing a purge in our military and the prime targets seems to be skin color and political ideology.  No, it is not an assault on minorities but a demand that all white males acknowledge the fallacious and fictitious white privilege.  The push in the business world, education, the military, and even in the church for those whose skin pigmentation identifies them as Caucasian to fall on their faces in repentance at the altar of Woke-ness and Political Correctness.  It includes the idea of reparation for some sin of someone in the past by anyone resembling those who committed those sins.  That speaks of an illness that can only lead to destruction thereby qualifying to be deemed terminal.

Who do I blame for the condition that exists?  I do not lay the blame at the feet of the politicians, although they are blameworthy.  The pursuit of their ideological agendas and the quest for power is inherent in the beast.  It is who they are, so we should not be surprised when they violate the constitution and our wishes in the pursuit of their inclusion in the pinnacle of power.

I do not blame the activist, although they are worthy of their share of the blame.  However, like the politicians, they are blinded by their rabid ideological positions and driven to destroy everything that does not align with their belief.  It seems they truly believe they are right and everyone else is wrong and therefore have a mandate to vilify and destroy everything and everyone who opposes them.  I do not justify their antics or activities, but insist they are not the reason for our condition.

I do not blame the anti-religious, the atheist, the agnostics, and those who do not follow, believe or accept the precepts of the Bible.  They are assuredly part of the problem and share the blame, but they are not the reason for our decline.  They have perpetuated it and enhanced it, but they are a symptom, not the root cause.

Who do I blame?  I blame the followers of the Bible, the preachers, the prophets, and those who identify as Christians.  Yes, that includes me, for I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, believe the Bible IS the word of God and inspired, and have preached the gospel for over 50 years.  How, is it our fault that we are in the condition we are in?  How can I blame the followers of the Judeo-Christian faith for our terminal condition?

I say it because we slumbered and took the easy road when we should have been watchmen on the walls and sounding the alarm.  We allowed the educational system to be hijacked by ideological activists. Those who were not advocates of moral rightness, the constitution, our American system of Republican Representative Government, and the Free Market.  We allowed politicians to strip us of our liberties, infringe upon our inalienable rights, and impose restrictions on matters of morality and religion beyond their legal, moral, and constitutional boundaries.  We sat in silence, fat, happy, unaffected, and lazy and they stole our nation.

We adopted the mistaken idea that our Founders and the Framers of the American Constitution wanted everything of God, Religion, and the Church removed from Government.  The phrase, ‘separation of church and state’ became the guide, and many preachers and churches were either silenced either by belief or intimidation and the foxes were allowed to guard and ravage the hen house – America! 

We became complacent and some were more concerned with the identity of the ‘Man of Sin’ (Antichrist) than the ‘Sin of Man’, (Condition of Hearts).  Some adopted the view that faith was personal, and our lives were compartmentalized.  We have our religious lives, our home lives, our business lives, and our political lives.  I’ve said many times, “We are not cats, we do not have nine lives – WE HAVE A LIFE!  All the facets of our lives reflect who we are.

America is in a dire state today and if we continue in the direction we are headed we will soon see an economic collapse that will remove America from the world stage as a superpower.  With over $28 Trillion in debt not to mention the unsecured debt in the $100s of Trillions, our condition is terminal.  This administration has suggested stimulus checks for people on death row without family.  That is beyond nonsensical, it is diabolical.  Money does not grow on trees and we are insanely spending money we do not have to fix a problem that spending has caused.

The draconian and tyrannical actions of some political figures during the pandemic have revealed the fragile nature of our freedoms.  The alarming silence and willing compliance of the public reveal the fruit of the labors of decades in brainwashing and reeducating the masses.  That suggests the existence of a disease or condition that is terminal.  I hesitate to go to great length but feel I must mention a few things that could easily render America an afterthought on the world stage.

If we were to have a massive war and with the current purge and revamping of our military, we might not survive an assault.  An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) would render America or any nation defenseless in a great measure.  The aforementioned economic collapse would render us incapable of contending or competing on the world stage and propel us to the back burner on the stove of world economics and power. 

The Scottish historian and professor Alexander Tytler wrote in 1787: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse [generous gifts] from the public treasury.  From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years.  These nations have progressed through this sequence:  Bondage to Spiritual Faith > Spiritual Faith to Great Courage> Courage to Liberty > Liberty to Abundance > Abundance to Complacency > Complacency to Apathy > Apathy to Dependence > and Dependence back into Bondage.” 

Another, I would be remiss if I did not include some predictions that came in various forms in letters and writings to Jefferson and others:  “Your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians not from without but from within your own institutions.” 

A moral collapse demands divine judgment and judgment is not always direct as with Sodom and Gomorrah it can be indirect.  That would be the removal of God’s protective hand and allowing the hordes to impose their will on society and render the nation powerless and ineffective.  I believe we are headed in that direction if we are not already there.

I also believe that America can be revived and although we may not be a major player in the end times as a superpower we can be a superpower spiritually and impact the world for the Kingdom of God and thereby see multitudes preserved and rescued from earthly and eternal destruction. 

The views I have expressed are mine and I believe they are birthed from what I am hearing in my spirit.  I have much more to say but have gone too long now.  I pray that you will join me and multitudes like me in intercessory prayer.  Believers and lovers of Freedom let’s accept our responsibility for the condition, repent, and become involved in restoration not just in politics and name-calling.

God bless you and God bless America!

ACCORDING TO THE AOC/BIDEN CONSORTIUM, I Am a Denier and a Member of the Flat Earth Society…


I am not ashamed to state that I am among the many who do not believe that man is causing climate change, at least not to any degree of significance.  I believe that God knew what He was doing and knew what we would be doing when He created this orb upon which we live and the environment surrounding it.  I do not believe the Earth is as fragile as the Climate Change, Global Warming, Climate Disruption Activists are shouting.  I do not believe that the most serious threat to the world is Climate Change, certainly not of the man-made variety.  I believe there are far more serious matters facing the world, the planet, and the people living on it now. 

Former President Obama fired every scientist who disagreed with his view.  The Leftists and Activists for Climate Change openly call those of us who do not buy the company line on Global Warming, Climate Change, or whatever they are calling it these days, deniers and deem us, ignoramuses.  The matter is not settled science.   The data used is like much data used by the government and activist groups, skewed to suit their argument.  It frequently omits pertinent data that would counter or call into question their assertion or hypothesis.  They are advancing a theory not a fact and I am not sold.  Therefore, I fall into the category of being a denier, in their view.  I am most assuredly am skeptical of their research.  My views are formulated through my interpretation of the Bible and the research I have been able to conduct. 

I read an article recently by a Nobel Prize Winner who will assuredly garner the ire of the activist and be placed high on the activist’s list of enemies to be destroyed.  Nobel laureate Ivar Giaever openly rejected Mr. Obama’s and the activists’ assertions that man-made global warming is causing climate change.  I happen to agree with Mr. Giaever, you may disagree and that is your prerogative.  Mr. Giaever has been a naturalized citizen of the United States since 1964. He has been in America for more than half a century.  He was born in Norway and won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1973.  Amazingly, he endorsed Mr. Obama in 2008 but then offered public criticism of Mr. Obama’s stance on man-made global warming and climate change.  That made him persona non grata to the Leftists.

I also agree with Mr. Giaever that global warming has its roots in two people: Al Gore and former UN Head Pachauri.  They advanced the curve to measure global warming.  In this formula, they take the average temperature of the world for an entire year measuring it to a fraction of a degree.  Let me suggest that if we consider the data from 1880 to 2015, the temperature increased from 288 K [degrees Kelvin] to 288.8 K or 0.3%. That suggests that the temperature for the past 135 years has been incredibly stable.  Isn’t that interesting?

That kind of statistical data suggests that global warming is a money-driven pursuit.  It has its roots in the agenda of the United Nations Initiatives which seeks to CONTROL people and uses this as a tool to achieve their end.  The hysteria and paranoia that our planet is on the brink of destruction and mankind on the brink of extinction due to man-made global warming are dangerous, destructive, and diabolical.  I have seen reports of murder-suicides over this issue by people becoming so deranged they cannot function believing that life, as we know it due to climate change, is over. 

Al Gore and others have become multi-millionaires due to this diatribe and hype.  I believe, as Mr. Giaever and many scientists that it is a non-issue and if we leave it alone the cyclical nature of the climate will take care of itself.  We go from hot to cold, from one extreme to the other and over time it balances out.  The recent storms in Texas and much of America reveals the cyclical nature of our weather.  We have extreme cold, extreme flooding, extreme heat, and extreme drought from year to year.  Yet, somehow the planet magically survives and thrives. Imagine that!

I would like to ask the scientist and activists who are using this issue to create hysteria, “What is the optimal temperature for the earth?”  The push to outlaw bovine flatulence and carbon dioxide emissions is beyond ludicrous, it is inane and insane.  Plants need CO2 to grow and we need plants to maintain our atmosphere.  If we could somehow stop CO2 emissions, we would destroy the planet in short order.  Is that the objective?  The objective like most things pushed by the powers that be is CONTROL not CONCERN for health and safety.

I would remind everyone that during the past 100 plus years, the temperature has only risen 0.8 degrees.   I do not believe that things have become so dire we must seek shelter to survive atmospherically.  Statistically, we live better, have better work, and better health today than 100 years ago.  Therefore, it is reasonable to say that with the 0.8-degree rise in temperatures we have not produced a negative effect.  Yet, if we listen to the alarmist, we will find ourselves paralyzed by fear and in a state of panic.  After all, if the temperature goes up another 0.8 degrees we will surely die! 

You may find my assertions repulsive and uninformed, but I find them refreshing and have renewed my confidence in God and His creation.  I have lived through winters in Texas where there were sub-zero temperatures (2021 is the most recent) and winters where it hardly reached freezing and then the cycle repeated itself.  The same with summers where the temperatures soared to well over 100 degrees and then summers so mild, we wondered if we were living in Texas and the cycle repeats itself. 

I believe that God is still in control! I am all for conservation and being good stewards of the planet, however, I do not believe it to be as fickle as the alarmist would have us believe and recognize that the political elements of this movement are about CONTROL, not CLIMATE! 

I do not trust the government or those who seek to control us through their legislative efforts and executive fiats.  I am reminded of James Madison’s article in The Federalist Papers, No. 51, published February 6, 1788.  He said: “It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”

Therein is the problem, men are not angels, and those seeking to control us use fear, paranoia, and seize upon every crisis to advance their agenda and increase their power and control.  I believe in and trust God not the government.  I believe that God created a planet well capable of sustaining life until Jesus returns, and He creates the New Heaven and New Earth.  I stand on the words of Genesis 8:22, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, and day and night Shall not cease.”  Amplified.

            God, bless you and God bless America!

WE DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLY – Although We May Die as A Result…


Let me begin my post by saying, “Thank You” for your continued prayers for me and my family as we navigate the troubled waters of grief in the loss of my earthly treasure, Bonnie.  She was my angel, my gift from God, and I miss her more and more every day.  She was faithful in all things and faithful to the end.  She never lost hope in God or me.  I told her that her confidence in God was warranted, but the confidence in me was often too generous and gracious.  She loved me dearly and I loved and love her more than words can express.  She wanted me to continue doing what I am called to do and shout from the rooftop what I hear and see in my heart.  She desired that I remain faithful to God and the call He placed on my life.  Therefore, I continue, even when I don’t feel like doing anything but sit alone and weep.

I realize that my title is somewhat inflammatory when standing alone.  If you will allow me to expand upon my statement, I will endeavor to express my concerns and the biblical and constitutional way to deal with the new normal the Left seeks to impose.  I am not sure that I can achieve that objective sufficiently, but I will give it the old college try.

The Media, which are nothing more than the propaganda arm of the followers of toxic liberalism or Democratic Socialism, seeks to confuse and indoctrinate with the rhetoric of the purveyors of the new normal.  Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines normal as “conforming to a type, standard…”  It also defines it as “occurring naturally.”  What does that mean?  I suggest that it means that ‘normal’ is defined as whatever society deems it to be. 

The Left and the Establishment Republicans are often peas in the same pod.  They were different hats, have limitedly different rhetoric, but at the end of the day, they are members of the old boy system and make up the Swamp and Deep State.  They are, largely, Statists and their view is not limited government but authoritarianism and control.  We are useful only to the extent we contribute to their coffers and follow their mandates.  Step outside the fence and you immediately become a threat that must be eliminated.

The utter lunacy of defunding the police and fanning the flames of discord and racism only serves to divide and weaken the fabric of our republic and society.  I am 100% in favor of positive police reform and would prefer that the police departments police themselves rooting out all the bad apples from the barrel.  Destroying the entire system because of a few bad actors is beyond insane and endangers everyone including those who want them defunded and dismantled.  In those areas where this is being attempted the crime rates are skyrocketing.  The exodus from those neighborhoods and cities will only expand in the days to come. 

The idiocy of releasing criminals back onto the streets while incarcerating hairdressers, restaurant owners, and private citizens for observing their constitutional rights is not a ‘norm’ anyone should favor.  However, it is becoming the new normal of the Leftist-controlled cities and states.  We can call rioting, looting, mayhem, burning of buildings, and battering citizens mostly peaceful but that does not make it so.  You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.  You can call a skunk a house cat, but I suggest that you want to avoid the business end of that creature.

Allowing big box stores such as Walmart to remain open while shutting down churches, restaurants, and small businesses did not curb the spread of the coronavirus but destroyed morale and is destroying the economy.  It has created a much larger dependent class of citizens who are beholding to the government for their subsistence.  What the government provides for, it controls.  If they send you a check, they expect compliance with their edicts in return.  If you fail to comply, they are more than willing to watch you die. 

I watched with dismay at the politicization of the so-called ‘COVID Relief Package’ debated in Congress.  How in the name of human decency and sanity can any politician justify making the national debt of Sudan or the education of women in Pakistan more important than the seniors, veterans, small businesses, and Americans? 

I recently came across something that William Randolph Hearst wrote in 1924. I said, 1924 not 1994 or 2004 or 2014, but 1924!  I read it and wept as I reflected on the current state of our society and government in 2021.  He said, “The day when this nation ceases to shape its foreign policy primarily for the safety and welfare of the American people will be the day on which its national doom is sealed – and its international doom too.”  That was a warning scoffed at then and the fruit of that policy being reaped in America in 2021.  We have done this to ourselves.  We do not have to comply but failure to do so may mean we die.  Where is the patriotic spirit of 1776?

When I review history and recall things I have seen in my life, around the world, I am sorrowful for my nation.  The reeducation or brainwashing of multiple generations via our modern educational process is bearing fruit and that fruit is not healthy or helpful for Liberty and Freedom.  During the Cultural Revolution in Communist China, there were hordes of Red Guards rampaging through the streets of Beijing and much of China.  They attacked everyone they deemed to be non-compliant to the Communist mandate.  Those victims had placards hung around their necks denouncing them for their crimes against the state.  Millions were murdered during those episodes.  One has to wonder, with the direction of America, how far are we from this type of Brown Shirted Jack-Booted Gestapo antics?

America was moving forward in re-establishing itself as the key player in the world economy and as the World’s Greatest Super-Power.  We are in grave danger of becoming a nation on the downhill side of progress as the Leftists take more and more control and seek to enforce their new normal on us.  I doubt that the average Russian in the 1990s would have believed that their country was on the verge of imploding.  Those of Rome would never have dreamed their empire could collapse. 

When a nation loses its connection to its moral moorings it is heading for destruction.  A corrupt society cannot long exist and as John Adams prophetically declared, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  We need to rehearse that warning and realize that the direction of the Leftists pursuing their new normal which is the opposite of that condition is destructive. 

Although our Founders were adamantly opposed to Direct Democracies and sought to establish a Republic John Adams made a succulent point in his letter to Abigail Adams.  He said, Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”  America is aging but age alone is no reason to become dead.  I conclude with the words of President Warren G. Harding from 1920.  He said, “America’s present need is not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration. It’s time again for Americans to assert normalcy and restoration. And then, yes, America can and will be great again.”

America, we either comply and die or we resist and live.  We either exhibit the Spirit of 1776 and once again and reclaim our Republic or we become serfs of the state?  Will the last line of the Declaration of Independence once again become our rallying cry and evidence of our commitment to Liberty and Freedom?  That last line is, “And for the support of this Declaration we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”  We the People are the rightful owners and overseers of this republic and its government.  It has been stolen from us by politicians.

God bless you and God bless America!

HEY, JOE, WHAT’S UP?


What I am going to say will possibly, no likely, make some people angry, but the Joe Biden that the Unions, the Never Trumpist, the Progressives, and Socialist in America voted for has revealed who he and the agenda are really all about.  They are not Pro-America and that was exposed on Day One and continues to be exposed. 

 I heard that some of the Unions were having ‘buyer’s remorse’ over supporting him in the 2020 election.  Day One Executive Orders including destroying the jobs of well over 11,000 people in canceling the Keystone pipeline.  The peripheral jobs and collateral damage will continue to domino for years to come.  Many of us warned this was who he and they were, but those on the Left and those who hated Donald John Trump so passionately refused to believe it.  Let me draw from an old cellphone commercial, “Can you hear me now?”

One of the incredibly alarming aspects of Biden’s Green Energy Agenda and the canceling of the Keystone pipeline for environmental reasons is the duplicity he has shown. While canceling our ability to have clean oil pipelined from Canada to keep us Energy Independent his administration seems to have brokered a meeting between the Turkmenistan government and the Taliban for a Trans-Afghanistan pipeline to bring Turkmen gas across Afghanistan and Pakistan to India. 

If that sounds remotely familiar and is a slap in your face, remember that this is the same deal that now-Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad sought to make with the Taliban in the years before the September 11 terrorist attack on New York.  He was a consultant for the Unocal Corporation at the time.  It was a bad policy two decades ago and a bad policy in 2021.  Yet, the Biden administration is showing the same ilk as the Obama administration, the Muslim world first and America last.

If we dismiss and toss out any environmental concerns and hypocrisy in Biden’s proposed deal the economic and potential graft cannot be dismissed.  But, isn’t that the norm for Biden and his family?  Money from foreign governments and corporations being funneled into their pockets has been the history of the Bidens for decades.  Nothing has changed and nothing will change so long as he is not held accountable.

 Let me add another element in the equation that should cause the hair on the back of your neck to stand up and make you snarl.  Freedom House’s latest Freedom in the World report ranks Turkmenistan as among the world’s worst offenders, below even North Korea in terms of freedom and civil liberties.  Wait?  I thought that is what the Left opposed and insists is one of America’s greatest ills.  Part of the deal is to pay the Taliban protection money or transit fees for the pipeline transiting Afghan territory. 

Consider the reality that that action severely undermines the Afghanistan legitimate government and rewards the Taliban for their insurgency in the tune of tens of millions of dollars if not billions every month.  One could ask, “Who needs Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers when the American State Department under Biden has crafted a scheme to reward our enemies in the Taliban beyond their wildest dreams?”

Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy?  We want to help those who hate us while we allow the destruction of our oil and gas industry and the related fields.  We support those who chant ‘Death to America’, those who loot and burn, but the Left insists that Donald Trump and those of us who support his agenda and the constitution as the most serious threats.  No, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the Democratic Establishment are America’s greatest threat. 

Joe Biden and the Democrats want a permanent wall in Washington, D.C. to protect the Capitol from Americans but want the destruction of the wall on our Southern Border.  Biden has taken a position that eradicates our borders, weakens our national security, diminishes our national sovereignty, and it is going to get worse.

The dangers involved in the open borders of the Biden agenda touches every dimension of American life and impacts millions of legal American citizens.  The economic impact is catastrophic, the strain on our educational system, healthcare system, and economy are enormous.  The COVID pandemic that has paralyzed America and much of the world will be expanded by this policy of allowing anyone and everyone to cross unimpeded.  No tests, not assurances of being disease-free or non-terrorist is the new norm and that is bad for America.

We have endured only a few days of Biden-ism and while I do not believe he is calling the shots he is the one with the pen and phone.  He is the one with the title, President of the United States of America.  It is painful to watch him stumble and bumble trying to read the teleprompter.  It is painful to watch what could be compared to a child wandering around seeking attention and doing whatever comes to mind. 

The Democrats, in their continual attack on Donald Trump, have revealed that their agenda is not simply stopping Trump but stopping all of us who are unwilling to become docile anti-American sheep.  Their intent is to send a message to all present and future seekers of elected office, “Dance to our music or you will pay the piper.”  They have threatened Trump and his family in every way possible.  They have called for the ‘deprogramming of all those who voted for Trump.’  Their intent is to make anything contrary to their agenda and ideology illegal and all speech ‘hate speech’ that disagrees with them.

They have suddenly become concerned about ‘Our Democracy’ and the ‘Constitution’ while seeking to fundamentally transform us into something other than a Republic and a Representative Democratic Union.  They have sought to be allowed the privilege of reinterpreting the Constitution to mean whatever they desire and protect speech for Leftists but deny it to Conservatives and most Christians.

Hey, Joe, What’s Up?  Are you going to destroy everything that America has been and was intended to be?  Are you going to enact policies, agendas, and issue edicts that will totally destroy the American Dream?  Are you so intent on gaining total power that you are willing to destroy us all?  I fear the answer is, Yes!   I cannot believe the delusion that exists, but then I could not believe it with Obama was elected twice.  I guess I should not be surprised and the saying, “Don’t Confuse Me with the Facts, My Mind’s Made Up” is apropos.

If you voted for Uncle Joe and his anti-American, anti-Capitalism, and anti-Constitutionalism, how do you like him now?  If you are comfortable watching America and the American dream and republic destroyed, I am sad for you and the rest of us.  We will all suffer the longer this goes on.  Only God can change this, and I keep asking, “How Long Lord, How Long?”

God bless you and God bless America!

LET’S PASS A LAW THAT MAKES EVIL ILLEGAL…


I hope your first response was, “That’s dumb!”  I hope you quickly dismissed that idea and said, “You cannot legislate morality.”  I hope you did, but I am cognizant that there are myriads of voting aged people who believe that is possible.  Millions believe the government can fix any problem existing by more legislation.  Sadly, there are scores in Congress that believe that too. 

I am going to address this from my Christian mindset, my understanding of human nature, and the outworking of government.  In Ezekiel 34, God spoke to the prophet Ezekiel and instructed him to prophesy against the spiritual leaders (shepherds) and call them out for amassing their fortunes, building their empires, and neglecting the flock of God.  That could readily be applied to members of Congress and other sectors of society.

A scathing declaration is found in (vv.3-6), “You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock. 4 “Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them. 5 “And they were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and they became food for every beast of the field and were scattered. 6 “My flock wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill, and My flock was scattered over all the surface of the earth; and there was no one to search or seek for them.”

In the previous chapter, the LORD informed the prophet that his responsibility and calling was to be a Watchman and to sound the alarm when evil and danger approached.  In America today, the church has been fragmented and far too many shepherds have abandoned or forgotten that their call is to be watchmen and to tend the flock of God.  The watchmen are not sounding the alarm, and some are calling evil good and good evil.  Because of the silence, complicity, and deception, I believe that Judgment is either on or impending for the Church and then it will be on the world.

It is time that keepers of the flocks of God and elected officials get back to the basics.  Preachers, it is time that we return to the simple Gospel of Jesus Christ and preach the precepts and principles of God’s Word.  It is time that we recognize the Holiness of God. We must rekindle awareness of the requirement that God’s people are to live holy lives and live as examples of righteousness, rather than seeking to assimilate with the world.  We are to be salt and light not corrupted by the corruption of the world.  We are to be those with answers, not those creating problems.  We must return to ‘Seeking First, the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.’

There is no law, no legislation, no politician, and no political edict that can solve the problems in America.  The root of the problems facing our society is in the heart and the heart can only be changed by God.  Things may get better or worse, depending on one’s perspective, via the pathway of legislation, but the heart has not changed.  We may prevent someone from committing certain acts and become compliant with the demands of the law, but we have not solved the problem.  We may stop them from doing evil, but if evil is in their heart, they are still evil and given the opportunity will act out that evil.  We put a band-aid on cancer we did not bring healing. 

We cannot solve the problems of humanity by making people who are not like us the enemy.  That solves nothing.  Lamenting over the injustices existent or that we have incurred solves nothing, it only ferments in the heart and produces hate and deepens the wounds.  Only God can change the heart and until the heart is transformed the problem remains as a seething caldron.  Only as we Seek God with Our Whole Hearts can we hope to bring about the desired change in our world. 

In Romans 12 we find a powerful truth that I wish I could make all politicians, political activists, and religious leaders embrace.  I can make no one do anything but I can expound on the truth and hope it resonates.  I can sound the alarm and make the plea, hoping it takes root and produces fruit for this and future generations.

The writer, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, reminds us in (v.4), that we many parts in the human body and the family of God.  He brings to mind that although there are many different parts each part has a part (function).  In the human body, each part has a role to play and beneficial to the other parts.  The feet have a role, the eyes have a function, the nose is essential, and even the armpits have a purpose.  In the human family, we are all created in the image of God and that makes us related. 

We may be of different skin pigmentation, ethnicity, religious belief, or political ideology but we are all members of the Human Family.  We can, as does the natural body, benefit from the input and function of the other members if we will allow for working together.  Legislation cannot achieve that!

The insanity of what is happening today in our American politics is beyond ridiculous.  We have opted to choose sides and make those not ascribing to our personal views the enemy.  Sadly, some not only consider those who differ their enemy by worthy of annihilation and in need of ‘deprogramming’ or ‘reprogramming’. 

We have made our personal grievances more important than the Republic.  We have lost sight of the founding principles our Republic was established upon. That being, “All are created equal and granted certain unalienable or inalienable rights by God.”  If we compared various parts of the body as ethnicities, we could possibly see how destructive segregation and isolation is.  If the feet refused to acknowledge the hands, we would become incapacitated.  The feet cannot do what the hands do nor the hands what the feet were designed to do but together they are a force to be reckoned with. If the lungs refused to cooperate with the heart, we would soon perish.  That can be applied to our ‘race relations’ in today’s America. 

The government, in the view of the founding fathers, was simply a very generalized pursuit of common security.  They even expressed that the government was, at best, a necessary evil because of the flaws of the human heart.  They distrusted anyone politician who sought power through the government, rather than serving their fellow citizens and they implicitly distrusted and rejected them.  We should do the same today.

Alexander Hamilton in a speech before Congress on June 21, 1788, said, “It has been observed by an honorable gentleman, that a pure democracy, if it were practicable, would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved, that no position in politics is more false than this. The ancient democracies, in which the people themselves deliberated, never possessed one feature of good government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.”

Thomas Jefferson declared in a letter to W.C. Jarvis  on September 28, 1820, “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform them their discretion by education.”  That has been a failure on the part of modern government and education.  They have sought to indoctrinate, confuse, and control.  They have sought to take control from us and impose their will on us believing they are our benevolent benefactors.

The Human Heart is the Problem!  The need is for a return to moral principles taught in the Bible and allow God to change our hearts so that we are not selfish and self-serving but people who love life, liberty, and want everyone to enjoy happiness through their own ingenuity and accomplishments.  Divided we fall, united we stand, thrive, and survive.  What will we have?

God bless you and God bless America!

HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY…


THANK YOU is not enough to express my gratitude to all my fellow, veterans for your service and sacrificeToday, November 11, 2020, is the specific day that we have, as a nation set aside to say, THANK YOU to those who served in our Armed Forces. 

The term “armed forces” is appropriate because it expresses a force that has both the manpower and firepower to protect and defend this great nation from all enemies.  Foreign enemies, such as ISIS and the Islamic jihadist are a real threat as are nations such as Iran, North Korea, and our perpetual adversaries Russian and China. 

But also domestic threats and those petulant temper-tantrum throwing leftist taking to the streets, airwaves, social media, and calling for and actually doing damage to property and person are asking for a taste of what our Armed Forces are capable of.  I do not want to see blood flowing in our streets but sadly it seems that is the objective of the Soros-led organization, BLM, New Black Panthers, SEIU, and many others.  It is tragic that we may soon ask our men and women in uniform to place themselves in harm’s way against fellow citizens and non-citizens treated as citizens. 

BUT that is not my desired focus for Veteran’s Day it is to say THANK YOU and show the RESPECT and APPRECIATION you deserve.  I served in Vietnam and spent 1967 in that part of the world and came home to a nation that spit on me and my fellow, veterans calling us every derogatory name they could imagine. 

I am so deeply moved by the realized real sacrifice those in 1776 and beyond made to secure a Free, Independent, and Sovereign United States of America.  I am deeply appreciative of the sacrifices and service of those in our two World Wars as well as those in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf Wars, and every other war and conflict our men and women have been thrust.  Many may not have fired a shot in combat and they are no less to be respected and appreciated because they are part of this illustrious and needed body designed to PROTECT and DEFEND this nation.  THANK YOU!

If I could exclude myself so that no one considers my remarks self-serving I suggest that our veterans “are the backbone of Freedom in this beloved nation.”  They are those who are out front in the line of defense for the freedom that even those who hate them are afforded. 

My love and appreciation for our Armed Forces only grow stronger each year and in each situation where they are required to defend this nation.  I salute you and your service.  Thank you to all my fellow, veterans the Marines, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, and Navy. 

THANK YOU!  May your day be joyous and may the entire nation show you the honor and respect you deserve as well as remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice!

GOD BLESS AMERICA and GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!

AMERICA, WHAT HAVE YOU BECOME?


Proverbs 14:34 – “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”  NASB

Some may be offended or take exception to my usage of Scripture and citing the moral decline of our republic as the most significant problem we have.  If you do, that is your choice, but I believe that from America’s inception as a republic family, faith, freedom, fidelity, and morality have been key cogs in the wheel of our success and greatness. 

John Adams addressed the military on October 11, 1798, and said, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.  Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net.  Our Constitution was made only for a moral and a religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The father of our nation and our 1st President, George Washington declared, “The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by the attitudes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world.”  He also said, “Tis substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.  The rule indeed extends with more or less force to every species of free Government.”

Another signer, Charles Carroll said, “Without morals, a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so subline and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”

Thomas Jefferson an oft-maligned founder said, “I know but one code of morality for men, whether acting singly or collectively.  He who says I will be a rogue when I act in company with a hundred others, but an honest man when I act alone, will be believed in the former assertion, but not the latter…if morality of one man produces a just line of conduct in him, acting individually, why should not the morality of one hundred men produce a just line of conduct in them, acting together?”

Politics has evolved into a nasty cut-throat nefarious and diabolical organism.  It has a life of its own and exists to perpetuate itself elevating the professional politician and statist to a place of preeminence and power.  It has become about control, manipulation, and promotion of ideologies, agendas, and sects desirous of dominance and control.  American politics have lost the view of the value of morality and many have adopted a ‘cat mentality.’

What is a Cat Mentality?  I call it that because people attempt to compartmentalize their lives and justify bad behavior in one area while claiming piousness in another.  I had a man in a congregation that I led who was a very prosperous businessman.  He had gone from being penniless to a multi-millionaire through his ability and the favor of God.  He was a faithful member of our congregation and generous to a fault if there can be a fault in generosity.  He believed, as do many that his business life, social life, family life, political life, and church life were different compartments and one did not impact the other. 

The reason I know this is because I was sitting in his office and overheard a business deal, he was conducting.  His deal was, in my view, questionable for a Christian and although not illegal or even immoral it did not advance the testimony of a believer exemplifying Jesus but focused on the bottom line and his benefit.  When he concluded the phone conversation, I questioned him about some specific points.  He said, “Preacher, that is just business and my business life is separate from my religious or church life. I do what has to be done to get the deal done and make money.”  I sat there a few minutes not saying a word then looked at him and said, “You are not a cat.  You do not have separate lives you have a Life!  What you are in business, the social world, home, politics, or in church you are!  You are the sum total of all those activities they are expressions of what is in your heart and who you are.”

America has ignored the basic teachings of the Bible and abandoned morality on many fronts.  We justify abortion claiming it is about women’s health or a woman’s right to choose.  What happened to the unborn baby’s right to choose and its health?  Politicians get away with fabrications and people brush it off as ‘politics’ because we too are guilty of engaging in our own distortions, and questionable handling of the truth.  We excuse in politicians what we are guilty of or deem acceptable in getting the deal done.  That reveals a massive deterioration of our moral moorings and foundation as individuals, families, and a nation. 

I do not justify moral failings in politicians.  I accept the fact that they have them and the lacking a saint to guide our government we must deal with that reality.  I believe that America had the favor of the Almighty in our beginning because we had a strong moral foundation as a nation.  You may find that objectionable because of things like slavery, but the vast majority of our citizens believed in God, the teachings of the Bible, strong family, honesty, and basic morality. 

I contend that we cannot call ourselves righteous when we allow the mass slaughter of the unborn and fail to love and tolerate others who are different.  I would never suggest that anyone violate their core convictions and conscience and embrace religions deemed by the Bible to be false.  I would not suggest that anyone abandon their convictions and embrace or call normal lifestyles that are anathema to the teachings of the Bible.  However, just because a person does not see things as we do does justify our failure to love them as created beings of our heavenly Father.

In our Declaration of Independence, the moral position of the republic was declared and defined.  “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  I would argue that today’s America no longer believes that principle base on the vitriol in politics and society.

The words of Proverbs 14:34 need to echo in our hearts and minds and we need to revisit our beginning history and examine the reality of the blessing of God’s providence through the years.  When we were a more moral nation, we had the favor of God and advanced greatly, even amazingly.  As we have become more depraved, we have lost favor in the world, watched the disintegration of strong families, and witnessed the increase of intolerance, hate, bitterness, crime, and corruption.  We were great, and I would argue still are, but we can be greater still but only if we return to our moral moorings and reestablish our moral foundations as a people.  This must be addressed individually, then collectively.  

Our elected officials are not examples, of moral standing, but if we as a people return to our moral moorings, we can create an environment where those of moral fiber will step forward and become willing to participate in governance.  Am I dreaming of a Utopia?  I think not, but each must evaluate and address this in their own hearts.  I stand firmly for Faith, Family, Freedom, Fidelity, and Morality.

God bless you and God bless America!

SOUNDING THE ALARM…


I am going to share this in my blogs and what I am going to say will resonate with some and possibly turn some off.  I am speaking strictly from my Christian perspective and the desire of my heart for a deeper relationship relationship with God and my love for my nation.  This is a different type of post I am placing in www.roybeaird.com but a more normal one for www.royscovenantcorner.com but I hope it is meaningful and helpful.

The LORD is stirring my heart more than He has in a long time over what is happening in America, the world, and the church.  I am shaken to the core of my being and drawn to seek the LORD more than ever.  I take the command and commission of Jesus extremely seriously and am seeking to understand and pursue Him with my entire being.

Jesus gave us some incredibly specific and pertinent instructions in Matthew 6.  In verses 9-13 we are given what we have called the “Lord’s Prayer” but it is actually the prayer that Jesus gave us an example or pattern for us, His disciples.  Then in verses 33-34, we are given instruction or our our mission and assignment in life.  This is paramount over all else that we can think or do.  I believe it is the key to success or failure.  It is the key to liberty or tyranny.  It is the key to life or death.  It is something that we mentally ascribe to but practically bypass.

The directive here and elsewhere in including a dozen or more places in the Old Testament is that we are to Love and Seek God with our entire being, body, soul, and spirit. Seeking God FIRST is critical but what is the purpose of seeking Him first?  Is it that we can feel good about ourselves, get goosebumps, have notoriety, or do some exploit? 

In order to answer that question, I ask that we go back to the earlier part of Matthew 6 and the prayer.  We are instructed to pray, “Thy Kingdom Come.  Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  We are to seek the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and our purpose is to bring the manifestation of that Kingdom to the earth so that God’s will is done here as it is in heaven.

How do I seek the Kingdom of God?  Is it through petition and prayer pleading for God to come to us?  I suggest that everything that Jesus did was for the purpose of action and was our example.  He was fully God and choose to live and operate as fully man.  A man totally obedient to God and filled with the Holy Spirit.  He thought with a heavenly mind.  Jesus revealed that He only did what He saw the Father do and only said what He heard the Father say. In John 5:30 our LORD said, “By myself, I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please Myself but Him that sent me.” 

What could Jesus do in His own power?  NOTHING!  Before you protest and say, “But He is God and God can do anything.”  Remember that Jesus chose to operate fully as man, a man dependent upon the Spirit of God and the Father.  Jesus is an example of what one person can do who is totally dependent, totally obedient, and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Jesus told us that with God all things are possible.  The Bible tells us that we are IN Him and seated WITH Him in heavenly places.  He has given us power and authority over all the power of the devil.  Therefore, we can do all things through obedience and faith.  NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE to them that believe (Mark 9:23).

THE WARNING AND PROBLEM:

We become what we focus on.  Our lives, thoughts, actions, and conditions are determined by what we fill our hearts and minds with.  Whatever most fills our hearts and heads determines who we are and what we do.  It determines whether we live and operate in faith, victory, and power, or fear, defeat, and bondage. 

If we hear what the Mainstream Media says more than what God says we will live in fear, anger, jealousy, envy, and defeat.  We will be unable to exercise the Christ-given authority that the Cross won.  We will not be able to bring the Kingdom of God into our present world or situation.

If we focus on the abuses or perceived abuses or other injustices of the world and any inequalities, we will live defeated and driven by our emotions.  On the other hand, if we realize that we have authority over the powers of darkness we will bring the Kingdom of God into the present situation, and through our lives and actions, we will bring peace and become a drawing light to Christ. 

Paul taught us the importance of our thoughts and instructed us to “think heavenly thoughts not earthly thoughts.”  There is no contest between God and the devil.  We do not have two all-powerful gods we have The Living God and the devil, a created being.  God could mash him like a bug anytime.  But God has chosen to operate in this world through our invitation and obedience. 

Let me illustrate it this way and hopefully, it will resonate.  If I own a home and rent it to you.  I am the owner and have a master key but without your invitation, I cannot enter that house.  While you are meeting the requirements of the lease agreement it is your home.  I own it.  I am ultimately responsible for it, but I have made an agreement with you to manage it.  God owns all things.  He created man but He has chosen to allow us to be fruitful and replenish His creation.  He has chosen to allow us to follow the desires of our hearts.  He has given us choice and we either live in obedience or rebellion.  We either trust the arm of flesh or the arm of God.

THE PROBLEM:

The problem with this present day is not people!  It is not even what they do!  The problem is the existence and operation of evil and our disobedience or ignorance of God’s provisions, purposes, and desires.

If we focus on what is wrong and what people are doing, or people, we will be controlled by earthly thinking and never see the full victory He has promised and provided.  God has invited us to enter into a relationship with Him where we can have the Kingdom of God live and manifest in us.  In that relationship, we view everything from the perspective of What Is in Him not What Is in the Present World.  We move from what we see with our natural eyes, hear with our natural ears, and experience in our natural emotions to a Kingdom Consciousness and a God Consciousness. 

The Spirit of God in us is not a Lake it is a River.  He is in us to flow out from us and impact those around us.  We do not have His presence to simply make us feel good we have His presence to impact our world.  We are salt and light.  We are the flavor the world needs.  When we walk into the room, things change, or they should.  Why?  Because of the presence of God in us and the Expectation that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

God has given us an Impossible Assignment.  A commission that we cannot fulfill in our own strength.  The only way we can complete our Life Purpose is in Total Reliance on God.  We must become totally obedient.

Believers, if we want to see America and the World saved we must change our mindset and worldview from what we see in the natural, what we can do in the natural to GOD, and become people who have a limitless expectation. 

I have so much I’d like to say but for the sake of a little brevity and the limitations of posting on social media, I conclude saying, “What happens in the world is up to the Body of Christ.”  We either become who God says we are and exercise the authority of Christ and enforce the victory He won on the Cross or we operate in our own strength and flounder from battle to battle often defeated and relishing momentary and temporary victories.  We win a few battles but not the War!

I am determined to become a vessel that He can use and allow the Holy Spirit to enable me to end my stinking thinking and become Kingdom and God-conscious.  I refuse to live in defeat when He has provided the Victory.  I refuse to allow the devil to steal, kill, and destroy when Jesus said, I have authority over Him.  I will resist the devil by seeking God and expect the devil to retreat.  IT IS UP TO US, IN AND THROUGH HIM!

God bless you!

WHAT IS THE REAL AGENDA?


Call me a conspiracist, I don’t care. But, I have an inkling deep inside my heart of hearts that something incredibly sinister is afoot in all the paranoia of today’s America and world.  I believe it extends far beyond the shores of the United States and has tentacles reaching into every nation on the planet.  I believe this agenda is not birthed in the heart of man but the bowels of hell and has its roots back to before the creation in Genesis.  That may be enough to cause some to stop reading, but I hope you continue even if from a desire to debunk what I am going to assert. 

The incredible paranoia over COVID-19, a real virus with a real threat, is beyond reason.  We have had other pandemics and health threats to America and the world, but we have never witnessed the rapid, extensive, and compulsive and willing shutdown that has occurred.  There is vast disagreement in the political, economic, and medical communities as to what we should or should not do, but the path chosen was a mandatory ‘shelter in place’ edict.  That lock-down destroyed our economy and disrupted the lives of multiplied millions worldwide. 

The efforts of the President and those wanting to help America return to some semblance of normalcy have been stymied and hampered by the Blue State Mayors and Governors as well as the Democrats in Congress and even some Republicans.  Yet, despite their efforts to keep the economy in shambles until after November, we are seeing hopeful signs of recovery and if everyone on both sides of the political aisle would work together, we would see it restored and Americans the beneficiaries. 

The Rioting and Anarchy that is being pursued and even encouraged by some politicians have a deeply sinister side.  I object to being called insensitive, a bigot, or a racist if I replace “Black Lives Matter” with “All Lives Matter.”  My assertion is not intended to ignore the reprehensible treatment of blacks or other ethnicities in our American history.  It is designed to acknowledge that ALL Lives Matter to God and should to us.  We will never achieve the purported objective of “equal treatment” if we segment or segregate society and insist that we only view the ill-treatment of one ethnicity.  If we cannot view everyone as created in the image of God, we cannot find a pathway to peace. 

When I read the research and websites of groups such as ANTIFA, BLM, the many Soros funded organizations I am deeply troubled.  Some of the declarations on their websites and the open statements of some of the leaders it further convinces me that my suspicions are right about the sinister evil behind this disruption. 

The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty lists the BLM founding principles as “guaranteed minimum income for all black people, free health care, free schooling, free food, free real estate, gender reassignment surgery, free abortion, and a global liberation movement [designed to] overturn U.S. Imperialism and Capitalism.”  What can we call that except Socialism coupled with revolution?  I vote no and say that is the pathway to destruction, not peace.

The co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors was a protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview she even said in 2015 that her fellow agitators were “trained Marxists.”  If that does not trouble you regardless of your ethnicity, then I am even more troubled.  It should be repulsive to everyone.

I am encouraged when some astute, clear thinking, and awakened members of the black community see the dangers and resist.  One example came from the president of the Englewood Political Task Force in the Chicago area as a group of black citizens were chasing away the rioters.  He said, “If your issue is with the police, take it to police headquarters.  Don’t come to our neighborhood.  If our people want to protest the police, they can do it.  But no one from the [White] northside or Indiana or any place other than Englewood can come here to protest.”  He was not opposed to protests but opposed to the massive destruction and rioting.  He is right.

The issues with ‘vote by mail’ are so undeniably dangerous, if we trust the postal system to conduct our election, we will destroy our system of elections.  I do not wish to charge postal carriers with fraud or make the guilty without a trial but when we have 300,000 active and retired letter carriers endorsing Joe Biden, I grow concerned.  I would be concerned if that same number endorsed Trump.  I want free and fair elections and when the USPS has already advised they are ill-prepared and unable to fulfill this task, we should listen and resume our customary manner of balloting.

Why the massive push to ‘vote by mail?’  Is it because there is genuine concern for the health of those getting out to vote?  If so, why are we allowing the protests, going to the grocery store, or any other place?  Why are we not experiencing a totalitarian martial law with mandatory house arrest for all citizens?  If voting in person poses that kind of threat, then no one should be allowed of their houses for any purpose.  Wait?  If we do that, how will we survive?  We won’t and the government will be in total control.  This is not about protecting citizens but shaping and shifting the election in favor of one side or the other.  I VOTE NO!

Let me cite an incident that exemplifies and amplifies my concerns and what I believe should be the concerns of everyone.  In Washington state, which has had mail-in elections for years.  In that state, the postal workers attach partisan campaign material to mail-in ballots.  Democratic candidate Alicia Rule, running for the 42nd Legislative District seat, was either dumb or had a brain fart when she posted on Facebook.  She said, “Ballots arrived today!  Mine was carefully tucked together with a flyer by our neighborhood postal worker.  I am reminded of just how much support we have because even that postal workers union has endorsed our campaign.”  That is being investigated by the USPS Inspection Service.  Am I hopeful this will be dealt with?  You guess!

The Democrats are not decrying this kind of chicanery.  Biden is peddling the fallacious rhetoric that failing to allow ‘vote by mail’ is somehow voter suppression and Trump is trying to steal the election.  The Postal Service has notified no fewer than 46 states that the sudden expansion required would be impossible to fulfill.  When you couple that with the reality that postal workers are anything but nonpartisan, you must see a potential danger.  I want everyone eligible to have the opportunity to vote.  I believe there are some cases where a mail-in ballot is necessary. However, for most, it is not.  We also need Photo Identification to better ensure that the person voting is the person at the voting booth.  One person, one vote, and that vote must be that person’s vote!

You may dislike or disagree with my concerns and assertions, but I believe there is a very diabolical objective and agenda afoot.  If the Leftist regain total control of the government, our Freedoms, Rights, and Liberties will be in jeopardy.  This is not a bump in the political road, this is a washed-out bridge, and failure to recognize it and defeat the agenda will mean doom for our Republic.

God bless you and God bless America!
