THE LAST RESORT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST…


I had someone tell me that God was our Last Resort regarding America and our Republic.  I paused a moment and said, “He should have been our first.”  That was not well received, and I was castigated with, “Well, you know what I mean.”  No, frankly, I do not know whether you meant that after exhausting all other avenues we should now turn to God or having trusted Him all along and exhausted all other avenues He is now our only hope.  I hope it was the latter but for many, it was the former, and therein is part of the problem.

My friend Dale Gentry said, “We trusted the ballot box and that did not save us.  We trusted the courts and they did not save us.  Our only hope is God.”  Dale is right!  In a measure, we put our confidence in people, the voters, the courts, and Congress and each of those seems to have failed us. 

Obviously, if you believe God was so repulsed by Trump that he had to go, then my argument is moot to you and probably offensive.  If you have been paying attention, watching the antics and activities of the Left, and are tuned in to the dangers it should ignite a flame inside your heart.  We are in a place where we MUST not need to but MUST place our total trust in God.  No man, no court, no Congress, no Media, nothing, and no one is going to save this Republic but God.  He is our Hope.  In that sense, He is our Last Resort.

Some have asked me if I believed there were enough incidences of voter fraud and irregularities in the swing states to shift the election to the Democrats.  The simple and short answer is Yes!  I do not know the details and will not get into the wrangling of what happened.  It happened, the courts refused to hear the arguments and evidence, and Congress certified the election.  Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America.  In that sense, the election is over.  What we do now, is the key and will determine if there is a republic in 2022 and 2024 for us to fight for a new administration.

I have had people tell me that whatever God wants to happen happens and there is nothing we can do about it.  His will is always done.  If I accept that premise, then God becomes the blame for the evil in the world.  If I accept that premise, how do I explain abortion, murder, rape, pedophilia, terrorism, and things like that?  I believe that God is the Living God, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent.  I believe that He can do all things.  I believe He could mash us all like bugs if he chose to.  However, I believe that He gives us choices and out of those choices we either follow in obedience or we engage in rebellion.

I don’t want to make this about what God can and cannot do, but if we are going to consider God as our Last Resort, we need to determine His authority and power.  The Bible informs us in 2 Peter 3:9, “The LORD does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” The sad reality is that all do not come to repentance, therefore, it would seem logical that all God wants is not etched in stone as an iron-clad guarantee of transpiring.  He makes salvation available to ‘whosoever will come’ but all do not come. 

We are repeatedly enjoined to pray, intercede, stand in the gap, and do spiritual warfare.  If everything is done as God wants it without any involvement from us that would seem unnecessary.  As a parent, I want my children, and now my grandchildren to be productive and successful.  I would hope that every parent wants that, yet we know that all are not.  The prisons are overflowing with those that did not achieve that condition or state. 

I am deeply concerned about our Republic.  We are more divided than I can recall in my lifetime.  There are more bitterness and anger than I have witnessed in my 70 plus years on the planet.  We are nearer to a second civil war than we have been since the first one.  People on both sides of the issue are filled with anger and anxiety and that has become a powder keg waiting for the right spark to set it off.  Will it within the next four years?  I hope not but have a lot of trepidation about where this is going.

The Democrats are chanting that it is time for healing and working together in one breath and in the next, they vilify those on the Right.  There is the ignoring of the mayhem, rioting, bands of marauders burning, looting, and doing physical harm by groups on the Left and branding those who committed the terrible act of entering the Capital without authorization and five souls lost their lives.  I consider it something to be condemned but so are the other events over the past year. 

When BLM, Antifa, or whoever it was, took over a police station and isolated a segment of the city declaring it was no longer the United States and outside the jurisdiction of America that was not called insurrection or sedition, but the events of January 6th were.  That is beyond hypocritical, provides no impetus for healing, and further divides.  The rhetoric by Joe Biden calling them thugs, insurrectionist, domestic terrorists, etc. but insisting that Antifa is just an idea does not bring healing but division.

America, if we are going to survive as the Free Constitutional Republic, we have been for over 240 years we must return to our founding principles and moral moorings.  We must hold all violators of the Law and the Constitution accountable.  That includes members of Congress, Presidents, Judges, Media types, and private citizens.  Everyone must be held accountable for violations of the Law and the Constitution.  If we do that, we will begin the process of healing and restoration.  If we do not, we will continue in discord, disharmony, and disruption.  The choice is ours!

I do not believe we can heal without divine intervention.  I do not believe the level of hate, misinformation, and deception can be simply talked out but will result in blood in the streets without a change of heart.  There are no laws that can be passed that will heal our nation.  There are no entitlements, freebies, or concessions that can be made that will produce healing and reconciliation.  The only thing that will bring about peace is a change of heart and that will only come through a move of God.

I realize that what I am saying will be considered more preaching than a presentation of a political argument and plea.  I can live with that for I believe in America and believe that if those who truly love God and are followers of the Bible and the Christian Faith will follow the directive of 2 Chronicles 7:14, we can see the healing of our land.

I hear some that are so disheartened they will no longer be involved in the political and that is suicidal.  I hear some who are so angry they will no longer vote for anyone calling themselves a Republican for they believe they are the same as the Democrats.  I believe that is wrong if you look beyond personalities to platforms and political platforms.  The Republicans, for the most part, are pro-life, pro-military, pro-law enforcement, and pro-constitution.  The Democrats are the party of abortion, desire to dismantle the military, and want to defund the police. The constitution has been an afterthought to them, and they ignore or reinterpret it to fit their purposes.

I plead with everyone to stay engaged and become more involved.  I urge all who pray to commit to intercessory prayer for the elected officials, the segments of society that are at odds with each other, and for our republic.  My desire is to seek ‘first’ the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.  I refuse to hate and desire to exhibit the Love of God to everyone.  I may not agree with your position or your actions, but I refuse to hate you based on actions, political views, or ethnicity.  You are a fellow human and therefore created in the image of God.  We are of the same family.

God bless you and God bless America!

AMERICA DESTROYED – By Hate, Fear, and Apathy…


I have lived long enough to see the America I have known and loved literally destroyed and is in the process of being ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a Socialist nation.  I acknowledge that we are not fully there yet, but with the whole of government in the hands of the Leftists, we will be in a very short time.

I predict that, within the next two years, there will be, at a minimum, an attempt to add Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico as the 51st and 52nd States in the Union.  That would mean an immediate increase of 4 Liberal Leftists Democrats in the Senate.  It would also mean the reapportionment of Congressional Seats affording them their allotted number.  That would mean states such as Texas and Florida would lose at least one Congressional seat.  The balance of power would be shifted to the Left possibly irreversibly.

I also predict that there will be an attempt, which will likely become a reality, to increase the number of Supreme Court Justices.  With the Democrats in control of the Senate, the likelihood of any Democrat breaking from the Party Line is remote.  That would mean that those new justices would be political activists calling themselves jurists.  That would shape the agenda for America leftward for the next several decades if not permanently. 

I am stunned that the America I have known and loved has drifted so far Left and appears blinded unable to comprehend the damage and danger coming.  The question that is echoing in my mind is, “What Caused This Condition?”  Although I am incapable of fully expounding on why I do see several things that are key elements that helped bring us to this place.

On January 5th or I should say in the wee hours of January 6th I was awakened to the thought in my mind and words in my spirit that made me weep.  As I awakened from sleep I heard in my heart of hearts, “America has been destroyed by Hate, Fear, and Apathy.”  I sensed that the LORD was speaking to my heart and mind and as I mused on that statement, without the benefit of any news I knew the fate of the Georgia Senate Elections. 

Godlessness and greed have plunged this nation into a deeper state of darkness than I would have believed possible.  Yet, I have been watching it transpire over the past few years so it should not have come as a surprise, yet it has.  I believe that this election was more a referendum on God than Donald Trump, Conservatism, Constitutionalism, Liberalism, or anything else.  That may not resonate with you, but it is what I believe.

LET’S CONSIDER THOSE THREE ELEMENTS – Hate, Fear, and Apathy.

If you will give me the liberty, I will take these one at a time, then collectively, and hopefully offer a small ray of hope.  I see those three elements or conditions as incredibly powerful.  The Bible directs us to Love but love is not the norm today.  The Bible leaves no doubt that a person cannot call him or herself a Christian and hate other human beings.  We are told in 1 John 4:20, “If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.”  There is nothing ambiguous in that statement.  If we love God, we also love others and if we do not love others, we do not love God.

I am stunned at the level of Hate prevalent in America today.  Hate blinds and is the culprit in virtually every discord between people, groups, and ethnicities.  Hate is a learned condition!  There is generational hatred taught in the homes, schools, and even churches.  The reality that there have been abuses of any people by others of a different ideological position or ethnicity is undeniable.  However, that never justifies hate.  It cries for repentance and reform but not hate.

Politicians and the nefarious souls who seek to control and dominate the world have learned that fanning the flames of hatred is a method of winning elections.  I suggest that there would be no ‘racism’ if love had a stronger hold on the heart than hate.  The Democrats, Media, and Activists have spent the past four years engendering a level of hatred for Donald Trump that has blinded millions to truth and reality. 

Hate has created coalitions politically for the express purpose of defeating Donald Trump.  The potential or real dangers presented in allowing those following the toxicity of liberalism and Socialism are unseen because of the blinders of hate.  Unfortunately, for them, those who joined the seekers of American Transformation to defeat Trump will suffer like those of us who supported him.  Most Americans will suffer the same fate and be subjected to the tyrannical agendas being advanced.  We will suffer in more ways than I have time to enumerate but suffer we will.

Fear is another element in the disintegration of our Free Constitutional Republic.  The Fear of which I speak has many elements.  It is a Fear birthed out of the blindness of Hate.  It is Fear that has believed the lie that Trump and Conservatives are seeking to eradicate them because they are different or disagree.  It is the Left that has sought to punish people for disagreeing, not the Right.  Then there is a Fear that grips the hearts because of an intense desire and the need to be accepted.  Many Fear being labeled a racist or some other derogatory designation.  That Fear blinds them to the dangers and forces otherwise rational people to comply fearing that if they do not, they will die.

Hate and Fear are incredibly powerful elements that imprison a person and doom them to a life of defeat, dissatisfaction, disappointment, and despair.  The prison of Hate and Fear prevents a person from attaining the stated objective of our Founding Fathers, Life, Liberty, and Happiness.  Hate is reactive and seeks to crush those disagreeing or look different.  Fear keeps everyone and everything at arm’s length and makes trust and cooperation a virtual impossibility. 

The third element is Apathy.  In some ways, this is the most destructive of all.  When I speak of Apathy in America, I speak of it from several fronts.  One is a mental attitude that helped produce the condition existing today politically.  Many, for decades, adopted the attitude of “Let the politicians handle the politics.”  They have but have not handled the political in the interest of We the People but the interest of Partisan Ideological and Personal Agenda.  We have, are, and will pay the terrible price for that failure.

Another aspect is Apathy on the part of the Church.  I blame much of the condition in America on the Clergy.  Preachers, Pastors, Teachers it was and is our responsibility to be ‘Watchmen on the Walls’ and sound the alarm when danger comes.  It is our responsibility and assignment from the Father to teach and train people in righteousness and God’s Law.  By Law, I mean His Word of God, not some list of rules and regulations but the Heart of God.  Jesus taught in John 15 that we are to abide in Him and His word in us.  We are told in Proverbs that as parents and shepherds we are to train the young in the right way. 

Apathy toward the politician has allowed the enemy to blind minds in the church and opened the door for evil to advance.  Any preacher that supports Abortion, speaks of hatred for people of different skin pigmentation, or advances causes that are in direct conflict with God’s Word is not a true shepherd.  Any preacher that refuses to address the wrongs in society and politics breeds Apathy and creates a slumber in the Church that leads to inactivity and opens the door for evil to advance.

I cannot adequately address any of the three, Hate, Fear, or Apathy in a short article but I pray that you will ask the Father to forgive you and me if we embrace Hate for any kind people.  You can genuinely dislike, disagree, and detest what they do but you must learn to Love as God Loves and resist the temptation to Hate.  If you are filled with fear and that fear causes you to distrust, embrace hate and block your openness and willingness to view reality, pray for forgiveness and deliverance.  If you are apathetic I remind you of the Words of Jesus to the Church at Laodicea, “…you are neither cold nor hot… because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.”

My prayer is, “Lord, help me to Love, not Hate.  Help me to be Courageous, not Fearful.  Help me to be Hot and Invested in Life not Apathetic or Lukewarm.  Help me to seek You first before and above everything.  Help me to forgive everyone and forgive me of everything.  Make me a vessel you can use and use me to manifest You to those around me.”  We can save America but only with repentance and prayer!

God bless you and God bless America.

HAS THE ENTIRE WORLD GONE MAD?


I wish that were simply a rhetorical question filled with sarcasm and parody, but I am earnestly serious.  I have, with enormous chagrin watched the sweeping moves of the Biden administration, the Democratic Establishment, and the RINOs posing as patriots.  Virtually every action they have taken, their rhetoric and spin have been destructive, divisive, and dangerous.  The anti-Republicanism and pro-Totalitarianism and Oligarchism are painfully evident. 

If it were the politicians alone engaging in these acts, I would be less concerned and have greater hope for the nation.  Unfortunately, there are millions of people who either do not think or do not think past their personal animus and the immediate who not only buy the spin but spread it like manure on a garden.  I truly wonder if there is hope for the nation and if the Whole World has gone mad?  I hope I am being overly dramatic and overreacting, but I have a sense I am not.

There are so many things being advanced and implemented by the Left that I hardly know where to begin and find it impossible to enumerate them all.  Therefore, let me cherry-pick a few and see if they give you cause for angst and concern. 

Joe Biden is committed to the agenda of granting amnesty to the 11-40 million illegals living in the United States.  Imagine that? During a time when there are over 17 million legal American citizens jobless, this is his plan!  The CNN town hall event led by Anderson Cooper in Wisconsin was incredibly revealing.  It was not encouraging but revealing of the true agenda and the willingness to openly pursue it by Biden and the Left.  I did not watch it all, but saw portions of it and have read the transcript.  It makes me tremble with deep concern for my beloved nation.

The plan is to immediately grant ‘green cards’ to all the illegals who will step forward.  He wants to and has ordered the immediate implementation of reversing the order for the hundreds of thousands of illegals to be turned away or deported.  He chooses, as did Obama, to ignore those that evade the federal authorities or release those apprehended into the interior of the country.  Give them a court date and expect them to show up, is the plan.  While we are at it, why don’t we simply order criminals to stop committing crime and I’m sure that since it is a Democrat ordering it, they will comply, right?  Watch out for the Unicorn poop where you are walking.

Not only is he desirous of the eradication of our borders and thereby our national sovereignty but he has made other ludicrous statements.  Joe Biden says, “White Supremacy” is the greatest threat to America, not ANTIFA, BLM, ISIS, or any other Leftists or radical Muslim or foreign groups. 

The incredible reality is that Mr. Biden believes that ‘White Supremacy’ has resulted from actions by military veterans and former police officers.  That’s right, Mr. Biden believes that the men and women who served in uniform and wore the blue as police officers are threats, not protectors.  He calls for Unity but that is nothing more than ‘hot air’ when he casts dispersion upon our veterans and our police officers.  He claims to have gotten into politics because of civil rights, but history reveals that some of his closest allies were Klansmen and devoted racists.  His political actions did damage to blacks and hampered racial relations more than they helped.  I believe Mr. Biden speaks with a forked tongue and he got into politics for fame, power, and money.

Mr. Biden insists that former President Trump refused to denounce the ‘Proud Boys’ and that has been debunked so many times it needs no mentioned.  Mr. Biden has trashed police and our military while former President Trump praised and honored them.  We are a nation of laws and without those who protect our national security and provide national defense and enforce our laws, we become a lawless society dangerous for everyone.

I don’t like to use this language, but I remember Mr. Biden referring to American service personnel as ‘stupid bastards.’  We watched the Obama administration use our intelligence agencies and the FBI to screen our troops under the pretense that those loyal to Donald J. Trump were potentially dangerous and domestic terrorists.  How much effort has gone into screening those loyal to Islam, ANTIFA, and BLM?  Biden’s new Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has launched an effort to purge the military of all conservative, constitutional supporters.  When we have a military that is filled from top to bottom with Leftists, what will prevent them from becoming the muscle of a Fascist Dictatorship?

I am going to say this, and it may get me kicked off social media and make me anathema to many.  Joe Biden is despicable and unfit to be commander in chief!  His disdain for our military and our police makes him a threat to our system of government and the safety and security of our Republic.

Joe Biden insisted that he would not speak to the Chinese Leaders regarding the genocide in that nation.  He said, “Every nation has a different set of cultural approaches to things.”  He considers the Uighur genocide as part of “China’s different norms.” Seriously?  Genocide is okay if it is a cultural norm?  Well, I can understand that since you and your family are owned by the Chinese government and you support abortion on demand.  Genocide and infanticide, to you, seems to be a normal way of life.  I’m sure if it touched you personally, you would view it differently, but you envision yourself as a protected class.

The architect of Obamacare, Ezekiel Emanuel has been tapped by Joe Biden as a ‘health care advisor.’  Emanuel has declared his view that senior citizens who are not actively contributing materially to society and the government’s coffers, should ‘get out of the way.’  Out of the way?  Yes, he meant DIE!  He believes that anyone living beyond 75-years-of-age is atrocious.  Therefore, he disdains medical care that prolongs life and is opposed to aggressive measures such as chemotherapy.  However, he is also against the widespread use of antibiotics for basic care.  I guess, he believes that if one gets sick the best thing for society is for them to die.

Joe Biden and the Democrats want to destroy the fossil fuel industry and make us totally dependent upon foreign oil and the alternative energy sources advanced in the New Green Deal of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Left.  He wants to tax us into oblivion and implement regulations and restrictions that make it an impossibility for a mom-and-pop small business to operate.  His plan will make energy unaffordable for many, healthcare virtually nonexistent, jobs scarce, and our inalienable rights revoked or infringed upon to the point we all become criminals for speaking our minds. 

The Left finds everything about God and the Bible offensive.  They want to force us to comply with the gender lunacy and allow men to go into the bathrooms and locker rooms with women and girls.  They want to make political correctness the law of the land and everything that does not coincide and comply with the toxic liberal ideology will be hate speech.  They want reparations for those who were never slaves paid by those who never owned slaves.  They want to divide this nation to the point that such civil unrest breaks out that imposition of martial law and total control becomes acceptable to millions.

I ask again, “Has the Whole World Gone Crazy?”  America, please wake up and help those of us who are putting our lives on the line in speaking out reclaim the republic!

God bless you and God bless America!

EXTINGUISHING THE FLAME OF FREEDOM…


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!

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!

WHAT IS A BELIEVER TO DO IN THIS WAR?


I am serious, what is a believer to do in this political, social, and economic war that is transpiring in America?  Does the Bible give any guidelines as to what we are to do?  Are we relegated to just accepting what transpires and hope for the best simply riding out the storm?  Are we to engage in the political dialogue and invest our time and energy in the political realm or confine ourselves to matters spiritual and leave the politics to the politicians?  Is the Church mandated to divest itself of all matters political and allow the world to decide what transpires politically? 

I have been castigated by believers calling themselves ‘true prophets’ and others who believe they have the answers and my involvement in the political is in error.  I had one tell me, “This war is not natural but spiritual therefore a believer should not be involved except in prayer.”  I would love for that to be the truth but find it incredibly difficult based on numerous passages of scripture and what I see in this world.  I want to be obedient to God and His Word.  I do not want to be in error therefore I ask the question, “What is a believer to do in this war?”

Please understand, that while I welcome all input and can take criticism and even being vilified over my views, I am not trying to create a debate.  I desire to present what I believe and if you believe it valid it can give you some peace and comfort.  If you believe it in error, hopefully, it will cause you to delve into the Word of God and research the matter more deeply.  If you are totally convinced that I am heretical, then reject it and pray for me. 

One of the passages that I felt the Holy Spirit wanted me to consider was in Luke 19:13 where the nobleman went into a far country to expand his assets.  He gave his servants a sum of money and instructed them to do business until he returned.  I believe that his parable was an illustration of what the church was to do until Jesus returns.  The King James Version uses the words, “Occupy till I come.” 

That poses a very intriguing consideration, what does the world occupy mean?  If we follow the parable and the natural element, we realize that it was not simply ‘hold the fort, hide away somewhere and pray.’  No, the nobleman demanded from those he had entrusted with money that they were to account for what they had done or not done in His absence.  If we see that as an illustration of what God expects from us we will realize that through the Blood of Jesus and the ministry of the Holy Spirit we have been given gifts and talents and are to utilize them until the very day that Jesus returns. 

That suggests that we cannot sit on the sidelines and observe or simply command the evil in this world to stop being evil.  The apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 4 advised that we are the ministers of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.  I do not remember who said it, but it might have been Leonard Ravenhill, “The church wants to be raptured from its responsibility.”  Sadly, too many believers have believed the position of the secular world that there is to be an impenetrable wall of separation between the Church and the Government. 

Someone said, “We are what we tolerate.”  That is a powerful statement and reflective of the lack of involvement of the believers in the affairs of government.  Politics involves life and we are commissioned to be watchmen on the walls and war of wickedness.  Another statement I heard recently is, “When the church gets out of anything darkness comes in.”  We are to be salt and light!  We are to resist the devil while first seeking God!  We are to pray for the Kingdom to come and the will of God to be done on this earth as it is in heaven!

I totally agree that this is a Spiritual War, not a carnal one.  I totally agree that we have weapons of warfare that are mighty through God and we cannot fight this fight using only natural weapons and tactics.  According to 1 Corinthians 3:9, we are “Laborers together with God…”  The battle we now face is a spiritual battle, a war between good and evil.  However, if we attempt to confine ourselves to the four walls of the church and the prayer closet, evil will prevail. 

I was told, “God does not need man, so stop trying to do it for Him?”  I agree, God does not NEED man.  He could do everything without any involvement from us.  He could, but He does not.  If God says we are to be laborers TOGETHER with Him that reveals that He intends for us to be part of the process.

If I were to adopt the philosophy that a Christian should not be involved in anything political and that we are to sit back and wait for God to DO IT FOR US, I would have to change my doctrinal views on numerous fronts.  If there is no involvement from man, then what is the purpose of preaching?  God doesn’t need us.  If there is no involvement desired or required for us, then why pray for the Kingdom to Come and the Will of God to be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Bill Gothard said years ago, “What we allow in moderation our children will do in excess.”  That has proven to be a reality.  Edmund Burke is reported to have said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  I go to God’s Word and history to determine what role I am to play in the political process and the struggle for Freedom.  God’s Word is the ultimate authority and history reveals the views of our Founding Fathers regarding the involvement of religion in politics.  It reveals the views of the Founders as to the importance of God in our Republic.

In 1787, the year that the American Constitution was written and approved by Congress that same body of Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance.  In that ordnance, they outlawed slavery in the Northwest Territory.  But they also enunciated the basic rights of citizens in language similar to the Bill of Rights.  They emphasized the essential need to teach religion and morality in schools. 

Article 3: “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”  I call to your attention three things they declared that were to be included in formal education.  Religion, which they viewed as “a fundamental system of beliefs concerning man’s origin and relationship with the Creator, the cosmic universe, and his relationship with his fellowmen.”  Morality, they viewed as “a standard of behavior distinguishing right from wrong.”  Knowledge, “an intellectual awareness and understanding of established facts relating to any field of human experience or inquiry, i.e., history, geography, science. Etc.”

Jesus said in John 9:4 that we are to “carry out the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no man can work.”  What is a believer to do in this war or struggle?  What are we to do in this winter of darkness?  What are we to do to bring about a springtime of light? 

We must Pray and Seek the Face of God.  We must recognize who we are and whose we are.  We must understand the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but we have power and authority over the powers of darkness.  We are to be the Enforcers of the Victory that Jesus won at Calvary.  We must seek the Truth and seek to Educate as many as possible in that Truth.  Truth about God and the government.  We must proclaim that message everywhere we can.  We must Invest our Time and Energy in seeking to establish righteousness in all phases of life and that must begin in us.  We are to ‘seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.’ 

What are we to do?  We are to stand in the Gap and Resist the onslaught of evil and overcome evil with good.  We are to overcome lies with The Truth! We are to overcome darkness with the Light of God’s Love and Word.  We are to BE the manifestation of His presence and representatives of His purposes.  We must seek to Hear what He is saying and Do what He desires.  God is the Living God and the Living God NEVER fails.

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT I AM SENSING IN PRAYER…


I sense and believe that there is coming a ‘Damascus Road’ type encounter for some in high places in America.  It may be political officials, but I sense that it will begin first with religious leaders. I sense that many will have that encounter.  The Bible tells us that judgment first begins at the House of God and then extends to the world. 

Some religious leaders have been taken captive by the ‘Woke’ mentality, the Politically Correct ideology, and are enslaved by what can only be called the politics of religion.  I did not say the religion of politics but the politics of religion.  The religion of politics is an ideology devoid of God but makes man and government the supreme.  The politics of religion is where religious views are modified and adapted to fit a political ideology.

The person who had the “Damascus Road” encounter in the Book of Acts was a man who was a religious zealot, deeply invested in the politics of religion.  He was a defender of the Law, which implies government.  His encounter with Jesus on the Damascus Road transformed his life, freed him from ideological slavery, and emboldened him to become one of the most powerful witnesses for God and the Kingdom in the Bible.  I am declaring that is going to happen again, and it will touch men and women in all denominations, sects, and walks of life. 

There are those in the Church today who are drunk on the hallucinogenic illusion of the Woke Philosophy.  I don’t know if they have adopted that view based on their interpretation of the Bible or out of a personal preference, but God is going to address it.  When that Damascus Road Encounter transpires, those so touched will realize that they have been living their lives like a tumble bug or a dung beetle.

TUMBLE BUG or DUNG BEETLE – Reflection of the Woke, Politically Correct, Leftists Politicians of Today!

What is a tumble bug or a dung beetle?  It is a bug that rolls up balls of manure.  It laborers tirelessly rolling a ball of manure larger than itself and will deposit its eggs inside the ball of crap.  When you see one at work you watch as it places its hind legs on the manure and rolls backward.  It is upside down and backward.  That is what some are doing in the Woke Mentality of today, they are living their lives upside down and backward.  At the end of the day, all they have is a ball of crap, no substance.

The Spirit of God is moving in the midst of the chaos.  I am sensing that the seat of satan is where the revival is going to be the most powerful and visible.  I believe that both coasts are going to be impacted supernaturally and dramatically.  The contrast of good and evil is most visible in California, along the West Coast, New York, New England, and is highly visible in some parts of the midsection of the nation such as Chicago.

I sense that those in the Bible Belt may not see the dynamic move initially, because many think they have it.  They are not expecting it because they are not desperate.  A move of God that contrasts the evil is beginning and will expand powerfully in the coming months.  If the Body of Christ returns to focusing on God and His Kingdom, we will turn the world upside down.  If we continue in sectarianism and division, evil will prevail, voices will be silenced, and darkness will cover the land.  We are in a Winter of Darkness but God desires to give us a Springtime of Light.

It is up to us!  God is calling a people to fully yield to His Spirit and Seek Him.  We are to occupy till He comes!  We are to Work while it is yet day for the night is coming when no man can work.   We are Co-laborers with Him.  We are the Enforcers of His victory.  

Despair, discouragement, and distraction must be guarded against.  No matter what appears to be happening we MUST trust and obey.  We MUST hear Him, say what He says and do what He does.  We MUST believe we are commissioned to destroy the works of the devil, pull down strongholds, and bind the strongman.  When we bind something, we must replace it with something else.  Binding demons must be followed by releasing the Spirit.  Love for God manifested in love for people is a mark of this move of God’s Spirit.

It is Harvest Time!

Motives are being exposed in every sector of our society.  The political, spiritual, and societal, in every sector!  Everything that can be shaken is going to be shaken.  That which repents and returns will be restored.  That which resists will be destroyed.  We decide the extent of the move and blessing in our lives.  God will give us as much as we will surrender to.

I am excited and encouraged regarding what I see God doing.  He wants to use us and if we, the people called by His name, will humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from wickedness He Will not only Hear us but Heal us.  America does not have to be surrendered to evil.  Until Jesus returns, it is our mission and commission to take the message of Hope and the Cross to every man, woman, and child on the planet.  We have not only been commissioned we have been given weapons of warfare that are mighty through God and are supernatural.

It is time to suit up in the armor of God, take up the weapons He has given, and destroy the works of the devil.  We must invest ourselves in Prayer. We must give ourselves to Truth and proclaim His Truth so that those who hear, and heed will be set free from the chains of darkness.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9). 

God bless you and God bless America!

C’MON MAN – Just A Dictator…


Snopes.com insists that Biden did not say, “You can’t legislate by executive order.”  They then acknowledged that he said, “there are things you can’t do by executive order unless you are a dictator.”  I’m not sure I see a significant difference, but I know, and I heard him say what he said as he was attempting to criticize Donald Trump’s actions.  Isn’t that peachy?

Joe Biden issued more than 40 Executive Orders and/or Executive Actions in the first days of his administration.  That smells of a mentality that says, “I am president, I can do whatever I want.”  I do believe that during Obama’s time in the White House he arrogantly declared in 2014 that as president “I can do whatever I want.”  Donald Trump was criticized every time he said anything about doing what he wanted but both Obama and Biden were given a free pass.  I wonder what is different. 

During the first ten days of the Bill Clinton Presidency, he issued 2 Executive Orders, 7 Presidential memos, and 2 Proclamations.  George W. Bush issued 2 Executive Orders, 2 Presidential memos, and 1 Proclamation.  Barack Obama issued 9 Executive Orders, 10 Presidential memos, and 1 Proclamation.  Donald J. Trump issued 7 Executive Orders, 11 Presidential memos, and 2 Proclamations.

Joe Biden, in the first ten days, issued 25 Executive Orders (now even more), 10 Presidential memos (now even more), and 4 Proclamations (now even more).  With those things in mind, who seems to be attempting to be a Dictator?  C’mon man!  By January 31, just 11 days after the Inauguration Biden had issued 39 Presidential Actions.

The Republicans in the Senate, including several RINOs, attempted to appease Biden and offer an alternative Stimulus package.  Biden and the Democrats said, “NO Thanks!”  The report out of the White House is that Biden and the Democrats will press full bore into achieving their agenda WITHOUT the GOP.  So much for Unity!  Unity clearly is not finding common ground but the Republicans bowing at the altar of liberalism and agreeing with the destruction or fundamental transformation of the Republic.  Republicans please do not comply, if you do, we die as a Republic. 

The Democrats have made it clear that they want to put Donald Trump on trial as a private citizen with the singular objective of preventing him from ever running for President again.  Why do they fear him so much?  Why do they fear those of us that supported him?  Why?  Because they know that we are unwilling to sheepishly follow the pied piper over the cliff like lemmings.  We have tasted freedom and nothing short of maintaining our Inalienable and Constitutional Rights, Liberties, and Freedoms is acceptable.  Therefore, the Dictator and his party, as have tyrants throughout history, must silence all opposition and destroy us.

Their willingness to use any government agencies to achieve their purpose was witnessed under Barack Obama and will be even more evident under this administration.  I am curious why Biden and company are acting as if they believe they have only a few days or weeks to implement their agenda rather than four-years.  I believe the reasons are multiple.  One is they know that once the full impact of the devastation to the economy is felt by the working class there will be a revolt.  The canceling of the Keystone Pipeline and the 11,000 jobs was only the tip of the iceberg.  The peripheral casualties are, to them, nothing more than collateral damage, and their unconscionable disregard for our plight is horrifying.

The potential threat of the Democrats in the next two-years packing the Supreme Court and adding one or more Leftist States to the Union is more than a remote possibility.  Someone said, “They’ve tried to add DC for decades and failed, this too will fail.”  I say, “Balderdash!”  It will not fail UNLESS we are able to put pressure on enough Republicans and Democrats in Congress to see the handwriting on the Wall regarding their political careers, they vote no.  The likelihood of that is slim. 

I keep hearing that Joe Manchin of West Virginia will hold firm and defend his workers.  However, Senator Manchin has voted in a bloc with the Democrats so often, I would never put my eggs in that basket.  With the Democrats in Republican clothing such as Romney, Murkowski, and the Trump-hating Nebraska Senator, I would not count on it.  When Biden is challenged, he makes his favorite argument, “C’mon man…”  The media fawns over it and defends him like a mother bear defending her threatened cubs. 

With the inconsistent and spineless John Roberts sitting as Chief Justice on the Supreme Court, the ineptitude of the GOP leadership, the propaganda arm of the Left, and virtually every Democrat holding elective office we are facing stormy weather.  I wonder how far down the tubes our economy will have to go, how rampant the breeching of our borders causing an increase in COVID and robbing citizens of jobs we will have to endure before people wake up?

If you hated Donald John Trump so much that you voted Democrat or didn’t vote you helped create this monster.  The monster is growing, and the finale of the devastation is not yet seen.  I am convinced it will take divine intervention and divine protection for America to survive.  We are, once again, in the clutches of the World Powers that want to advance the Agenda 21’s Sustainable Development Initiative.  We are watching America destroyed and people who hoped for a different outcome are either disillusioned, discouraged, or so defeated they are pulling back from the war.  WE CANNOT DO THAT!

I fully agree with those who are saying, “This is not a natural but a spiritual war.”  I agree that we will not defeat the diabolical designs of the Leftists at the ballot box alone.  We must become people who pray and people who know how to utilize the spiritual weapons we have been given.  We must be those who demonstrate the ability to enforce the Victory of Calvary through the Power of God.  Yet, we also must stay engaged in the battle and educate, illuminate, and seek to prevent the desired destruction. We are laborers TOGETHER with God!

C’mon Man, Biden is not just a senile old fart with a diminished mental state incapable of doing harm.  He is and will do harm by doing what he is instructed.  His diminished state makes him doubly dangerous because he appears totally devoid of reason.  He believes that he can do whatever he wants and knows that his 47 years in government have bought him much insulation.  He, like Hillary, knows too much on too many for the Elitist in Washington to turn on him.  He is a protected species and it is only as God pulls back the veil and exposes the designed destruction and criminality that people become incensed to the point of rejection will we find hope. 

C’mon man, he is attempting to be a Dictator, so what’s the problem?  That is the problem! It is time that we realize how near destruction we are and commit ourselves to God and America.  I plead with everyone to be informed, attempt to articulate your concerns to family, friends, and neighbors, and VOTE! 

God bless you and God bless America!

WINTER OF DARKNESS or SPRING OF LIGHT?


Recently in prayer, I heard in my spirit, ‘The winter of darkness and the spring of light.’  I sensed that the LORD was seeking to impress upon me the reality that we should be ready for some intense persecution because of our faith and our ideological beliefs politically.  I remembered the words of Psalm 30:5, “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”  As I prayed, I sensed that America is about to endure some incredibly dark days and almost simultaneously there would be the brilliant light of revival that obliterated the darkness.  I sensed that would come for many, after a season of serious lack and loss. 

I know people ranging from family, friends, to casual acquaintances who believe that Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States, was a virtual god and others that he was the incarnation of Lucifer himself. There were views that covered everything in between those two views.  Many of them can only hear what they believe and reject any view contrary to their own.  The chasm between the positions is literally impossible to span and that is deeply disheartening for me.

I believe that God used an incredibly flawed vessel to give America a window of opportunity to move back toward His and our Founder’s original intent for America.  I am not making Trump a savior nor a saint, he is neither and neither is Biden or any other human.  Only God is our salvation, not man and not human government. 

I believe that God used Donald Trump to expose the depth of corruption that was more expansive than many thought possible.  I believe that God intended to use Trump to inspire people of faith to return to Him and stand in the gap enforcing the victory that Jesus won at Calvary.  There are those who hate Trump so vehemently they snarl at my words and accuse me of being a cultist blindly worshipping a man.  They don’t know me, nor my heart, and I will not allow their vitriol to cancel, my faith in God or the American dream.

I will not attempt to enumerate all the good things I see that have transpired during the four-years of the Trump presidency.  That would require an article so voluminous that no one would read it through to the end.  Even if I did, it would be rejected by those who consider him the vilest person on the planet.  Among the many good things that were accomplished were a rekindling of the American dream, an invigoration of the economy, a strengthening of our national defense, and stronger security on our border.  There was a clear defense of our inalienable rights such as freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms, and our religious liberties.

I readily acknowledge that spending has been problematic and misguided. Sadly, that has been the modus operandi of politicians of both parties for decades.  Those in Washington and even many statehouses seem to think that money grows on trees.  They seem to believe that if we just throw enough money at any problem, we will solve it.  They have lost sight of the reality that you cannot borrow your way out of debt.  They fail to understand that it is only as we inspire people to solve their own problems, labor to succeed, and enjoy rewards from their labors that we better ourselves.  Personal responsibility and accountability must become a renewed part of the equation or we will create a dependent entitlement mindset that will render everyone serfs of the state.  If that transpires it will be an economic, social, moral, political, and spiritual disaster.

Many of us who supported, and support Donald Trump were drawn to him or became supporters did so with some trepidation.  He was not my first choice in the primaries but once he was nominated and as I listened to his proposed agenda I was moved to hope.  I did not know if he was going to be another of a long line of political hopefuls that promised things they could and would not attempt to fulfill.  I was hopeful but cautious.  However, when I compared the party platforms it was a simple choice for me.

As the Trump presidency began to unfold, I realized, as did many others, that he was a different animal.  He did not make promises he did not intend to fulfill.  He was different and his street fighter New York personality was sometimes grating.  His propensity to push back harder than pushed was both troubling and amusing because it was so different than the political norm.  He, like virtually all those who serve in elected positions in Washington, is egotistical and enjoys the limelight and praise.

However, I saw in Donald Trump a man that was a businessman more than a politician.  I saw a citizen of the United States that genuinely believed the country was in trouble and needed to be restored.  He won my support by demonstrating that he was willing to fight to fulfill his promises and that his heart was the betterment of America.  He demonstrated that he was tired of America being blamed for all the ills of the world and that he wanted the American people to enjoy the fruit of their labor rather than become pawns of the government.  You may disagree with that assessment, but it is one of the things that won my vote.

As I compared the views expressed and the actions demonstrated by Trump and Biden, Pence and Harris it was an easy choice for me to reject the Democratic ticket and vote for Trump/Pence.  If I had no other issue than abortion, I would have rejected the Democrats, but I have a long laundry list of reasons.  If there was no other issue than freedom of speech, I would have rejected them.  If there was no other reason than the right to keep and bear arms, I would have rejected them.  I could cite the borders, immigration, the oil and gas industry, the tyrannical approach to the pandemic, taxes, and many more as reasons.  For me, the choice was easy.

I have had some argue that if I voted on principles, I would be required to reject Trump because he was immoral.  I must ask, “Do we consider Biden and Harris examples of moral superiority?”  My principles require me to vote for the candidate or party platform that more closely aligns with my biblical beliefs and the Bible.  At this juncture, the Democratic Platform is anathema to my faith and what I believe the Bible teaches. 

If you are one that believes that Biden will do just fine because he has to impress the voters to win again, I hope you are right.  I pray that your deep political expertise will be accurate and that he will do what is right for America.  The sad reality is that he has surrounded himself with anti-capitalist people, anti-biblical faith, pro-abortion, pro-taxes, pro-amnesty, and open borders, and support abortion on demand.  Those are just a few of the realities.  Biden’s own promise is that he will take action to reverse everything that Trump did, which many of us believe are good and beneficial for America.  He will, in my view, be a train wreck as was the man he served with.

I worship no man, never have, and never will.  I see the flaws in others and God continually reminds me of the flaws in me.  I am praying for America that we will weather the storm of the winter of darkness and reach the spring of light.  I pray that we will not become so fundamentally transformed that no future election is safe.  I pray that there will not be a full-scale war launched against our inalienable rights, our Christian faith, and our republican system of government.  I believe those things will become realities far too quickly for comfort. 

To the American church, I say, we have been spared the persecution much of the world has endured for decades if not centuries.  I have deep trepidation that the planned destruction will become ubiquitous and we will battle on so many fronts at the same time many will despair and give up.  I recall a saying that was reported to have come from Reverend William Burton “Burt” McCafferty.  He said, “God can pull us through anything if we can stand the pull.”  That may be powerfully apropos to our present situation.  Can we stand the pull?

I urge you to pray for America and never, never, never, give up on God.  God bless you and God bless America!
