Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph. Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skillful of lamentation to wailing. And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the LORD. Amos 5:14-17 KJV
Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the LORD God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph. Therefore this is what the Lord, the LORD God Almighty, says: “There will be wailing in all the streets and cries of anguish in every public square. The farmers will be summoned to weep and the mourners to wail. There will be wailing in all the vineyards, for I will pass through your midst,” says The Lord! Amos 5:14-17 NIV
No matter what others may say about the responses by people who feel cheated and robbed by the rigged election results, they have a right to express themselves–without doing evil. And before any think I’m whistling in the dark about a “rigged election” they might want to pay attention the events of the past eight weeks or so. I finally had some insight about some things that were said–by the Trump campaign team–and sought The Lord for understanding. Careful analysis reveals that plans were underway to manipulate the election before election took place and the president-elect told us it was going to be rigged. Most just weren’t listening because he made it sound like it was going to be rigged against him, not for him.
This is not a proclamation for anyone to hate others, but it is an admonition and encouragement for anyone who thinks that voter fraud or suppression were responsible for the election results, call or write the Justice Department immediately before the electoral college votes are certified. This is our right to question the legitimacy of an election when we suspect the rights of others have been violated.
I know that some who will bother to read this will think I’m just a sore loser about the election results. That would not be true. I am a person of integrity and when I feel that an injustice has been committed in order for others to make claims that are not true, I will and have joined in against the evil–which is what I hate, not a person. For I understand the evil that resides within a person is not necessarily that person, but the evil must be combated and that means–the evil must be confronted. I am confronting the evil and challenging that spirit to remove itself from our atmosphere so peace can reign.
Just as many of us are guided by Holy Spirit who resides within, we must acknowledge the evil spirits that also reside within a person and we know they do for Jesus cast out legions of evil spirits in a man. Those legions of evil spirits took up residence in the hogs and led them to drown themselves. We cannot allow the evil spirits that reside in people to cause chaos and destruction for the rest of us.
We are told that we shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set us free and right now, I’m declaring freedom from spiteful, hateful, misogynistic, racist, megalomaniac rule over America. For if we allow that spirit to reign, we shall suffer destruction for that is all evil can do–destroy.
Perfect love–of all human beings–regardless of their religion, gender, ethnicity or skin color–or even their poor behavior–cast aside fear. So this message is not about instilling fear, but encouraging love so can defeat the evil before it destroys. We have to remember that Love will always trump hate. We must fight for justice, while fighting against evil, with Love ruling and guiding the way.
