What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10 NIV (read all of James)
There is indeed a need to resist the devil in our midst–the evil that comes from the White House–connected with Russian ties.
What causes someone to want to fight and quarrel and only see the negative side of anything that doesn’t pertain to them? What resides inside the person who thinks that as long as the news is about him and all he does–it has to be positive and favorable or otherwise it’s fake news?
What we see–on a daily basis–is an attempt to subvert and circumvent elements of laws and constitutional policy to push a political agenda that can only end in either civil insurrection or war.
The lies and liars are playing a leading role on the American stage and the world is watching, shaking their heads in total wonderment and some–who didn’t like us anyway, are gearing up to take on the bully–who is actually a cowardly lion who’s making a lot of noise, but has no bite.
What we have in the White House is an illiterate person, who cannot read and signs Executive Orders for show, and doesn’t really know what he’s signing because no one consulted him about the content. He’s just giddy with power and having an opportunity to make something of the optics when he’s shown signing his name which he proudly displays, pretty much like a third-grader, just learning how to write in cursive.
The “reality tv” king is exposing for all the world to see, not only does he not have on a royal robe, but he also lacks the intellect and stamina to sustain and maintain a position of leadership–without the world laughing at his efforts.
It is truly sad that he has never learned the art of being friendly for friendship’s sake, but has always eyed a situation in order to see how he could best benefit from it. Yesterday, with the Prime Minister from Japan, who he made quite uncomfortable with a prolonged jerky handshake–attempting a photo op–made it clear for all to see, he’s not sincerely likeable. And that was not the first time. Apparently, no one has coached him on how to “shake hands” without make a nuisance of himself.
Even during the joint press conference, while Prime Minister Abe was speaking, 45 never had on the earphones by which he could have heard the translation, but stood at his podium nodding like a fool, never understanding anything. Had he worn them, he would have heard the Prime Minister attempting to give him some sage advice about leadership.
But since 45 thinks he knows everything, not many can offer him advice and those who do, are not playing nice--since they’re the ones who want him out of the way so they can take the reins and lead this country backwards.
If there was any integrity or honor in 45, he would have seen with open eyes–the chaos he created with all the lies and propaganda and stepped aside–admitting he is not the legitimate president.
And yet he persists with his mythical twist of lies about voter fraud and considering how he projects onto others what he is guilty of–someone should look into it–and discover just how fraudulent this election really was since it favored him.
Now, those of us who know the truth have a job to do and do we must to show the world there are real Patriots in the land, more than just one man who lies, and we will persist and won’t desist as we continue to resist the devil in the White House.
