Where Are The Watchmen? (Part 1)

Where Are The Watchmen? (Part 1)

Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their head. Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchmen accountable for their blood.‘ Ezekiel 33:2-6

Every born-again believer is called to be a watchman for the rest of the world. When we see danger coming, it is our responsibility to sound the alarm and warn the people. When we don’t do our job, and people are harmed, God will hold us–who refuse to sound the alarm, making sure the people are warned of impending danger–accountable for all loss of life and any harm to others.

I take God’s Word seriously and have been sounding the alarm for months. Some have derided my attempts to warn, some have listened, but many have ignored. The time is coming and it is soon approaching where every man, woman and child will have to make a decision in resisting the impending doom about to fall upon America and our democracy. We can submit and succumb to the fascism looming, or we can resist and remember how we came to be in the first place–fighting back to protect our freedom.

I won’t belabor the point, but I would encourage any and all reading this post to read all God said through Ezekiel and to understand the importance we all play. I don’t mean shouting from the rooftops, “The sky is falling.” I mean exclaiming to all you meet and greet and interact with on social media that a plot is afoot to deny Americans basic rights–freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to vote for our choices, without interference. Don’t take my word for it, read the independent publications as well as the Main Stream Media publications. Knowing is half the battle; how we win depends upon what we do with the knowledge we obtain. If we do nothing, we get nothing; if we act upon what we receive, we make the world a better place for all.

So, what are you going to do? I’m going to continue fighting back, alerting everyone that the Republican Party has been compromised by white supremacist groups and they desire that no brown or black people reside in this country. They are fearful of having “white skin tones” obliterated and are in dire straits to protect and preserve “white privilege” at the expense of the others–without regard to the fact that we are “one human race” established by God, not men. They are guided by hatred and bigotry, not love and they observe religious activities, but do not have a relationship with Jesus.

I’m Living to fight all the way to the White House so everyone will know–there is a voice speaking out and up for the Everyday American who loves all and recognizes all life as precious–regardless of the outer complexion.

Are We Still Free?

Are We Still Free?

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:31-35 NIV

Our Liberty Is At Risk! (original posted on medium.com)

There are numerous ways a person’s liberty can be risked and most of us — with functioning brain cells, understand that liberty — in it’s truest sense — always comes with a price and that price has often cost lives.

America — this land in which European immigrants came to escape the persecution of English Rule — this land that was inhabited by natives who lost their own freedom and liberty at the hands of those who “took” more than they ever gave — to anyone — this land on which two wars were fought — Revolutionary War — pitting settlers against England and the Civil War — pitting brother against brother to end slavery.

The Revolutionary War ended with those immigrating to this land defending their right to be free from English Rule and taxation and in establishing Independence from English intervention in whatever they decided to do. Though many lives were lost — America gained it’s liberty — and we now celebrate that on the 4th of July — our Independence Day — breaking the chains that bound us to England. France celebrated with us by giving us a gift — Lady Liberty — who stands in the harbor of New York as a beacon to everyone entering the sacred portal of American freedom. Now, we may have to give “Lady Liberty” back to France since our liberty is at risk.

The Civil War — the north against the south — primarily about liberating enslaved human beings from the dictates of cruel slavemasters — ended with the Emancipation Proclamation — signed by Abraham Lincoln. Another war — costing lives — ending in the liberation of slaves as an ideology, but not a practicality since “Black People” were still not viewed as equal to their white counterparts and were not treated as Americans with the same rights as others. Another venue to obtain liberty for Black People — who had been imported to this land to build it as “free labor,” resulted in the fight for Civil Rights. Notice that both fights involve the term — civil — and yet civility has yet proved, elusive to our society.

As long as there are those who allow superiority-complexes and hate to drive them — there will never be liberty for all in this country and we see it played out in our political system that is eroding on a daily basis. Though we have a constitution — written by those who declared the first leg of freedom from English rule — those in Washington now, apparently feel it has no purpose and it is certainly being ignored by the GOP Congress. If Congress will not uphold its oaths of office, there is no democracy or liberty and we are all left to deal with the fallout of idiocy that reigns in the White House.

There are no excuses — aired or unaired — through any venue or platform that can justify the continued support of the GOP congress for the unfit, temperamental, toddler-in-chief who makes a mockery of hard-fought freedoms that allowed him to be elected in the first place. He avoided serving in the military with phony deferments, lied to his “supporters” about caring about them, and continues to ignore the Constitutional policies put into place to save us from tyrannical rule and financial destruction. But Congress won’t act and as long as they won’t act — the liberty — which cost lives for over two hundred years will be gone and in its place — a Russian agent will dictate per the orders received from Putin.

America is not at risk of danger from without its borders, but from within the White House and on Capitol Hill. I understand why Congress won’t do its job; too many of them knew about the Russian meddling and went along with it so they would win the majority in the 2016 Election and are afraid of being exposed. They have demonstrated that their oaths of office mean nothing in comparison to the “power” they think they have — because they have forgotten — 2018 and 2020 will yield a change in Washington and those who propped up the fake president will pay the ultimate cost — loss of their seats and scorn from their constituents.

The terrorists we should fear are not coming into the country from the Middle East — they are installed in positions of authority in Washington — and they are determined to undermine the stability and security of every American with their “misguided and hateful determination” to revert any policy established by President Obama to save lives, destroying lives in the process, but they don’t care! That’s what hatred does. That’s what ISIS does. That’s what the Taliban does and where I sit — I see no difference in the behavior of either terrorist group and our current Congress.

Of course — everyone is entitled to their opinion and I often air mine through social media platforms. I am not one who is willing to sit silently and allow events that devastate to pass me by without comment. In this current environment of chaos and foolishness, I refuse to be silent, and I will fight for continued liberties of all people and the best way I have determined to do that — is from the White House as President 46 in 2020. With our liberty at risk from the current administration, I encourage all to support me in this endeavor so we can remain “independent” from all foreign influence — especially Russia.

I’m Listening!

I’m Listening!

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to those who are simple, knowledge and discretion to the young—let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance—for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul; let’s swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; cast lots with us; we will all share the loot”—my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; for their feet rush into evil, they are swift to shed blood. How useless to spread a net where every bird can see it! These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves! Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it. Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings. But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you—when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD. Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.” Proverbs 1

ATTENTION ALL WHO BELIEVED A LIE AND FOLLOWED A MOCKER!

When we listen to God and know He speaks to us because we understand His Word, we avoid falling into the snares and pits plotted for us by those who choose to lie and make a mockery out of those things we hold dear and sacred.

Traditions–established to maintain continuity and stability–especially in how our nation functions–should not be abandoned for the sake of ego. Now we see the consequences daily of ignoring traditions and respecting those which keep us safe from harm.

Those in the White House have disrespected its purpose, its honor, and the history of maintaining order so all Americans can feel safe.

There is no order or stability in the midst of chaos.

There is no honor or integrity in lying and mocking the most important position of the land–governing the people–who will not tolerate a dictator.

I do pray that all the Republicans and Evangelicals, who are about to see how The Lord reveals truth and exposes wickedness thought hidden, can handle the repercussions of promoting a pathological liar whose only desire in obtaining access to the White House was to assuage his ego and to humiliate President Obama and all he tried to do for the benefit of all Americans. No true Believer would have taken part in this mockery of justice and who we are in Christ.

I am a true Believer and I’m listening to God and watching and warning! If people choose not to listen–that’s their prerogative and they will have to deal with the consequences of not listening.

It’s time for a change–a change in this country’s views and actions that can only led by an Everyday American who understands–what all need to survive and thrive in this nation.

Staying Focused!

Staying Focused!

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.Only let us live up to what we have already attained. Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do.For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. Philippians 3:14-21 NIV

At some point in time, we all need to take stock of our surroundings, pay attention to what’s important and determine within ourselves–to not let the menial incidents to distract us or keep us off focus.

If our focus is to live for Christ and live as He desires us to live–we cannot ignore the plight of those who are less fortunate than we are, nor can we ignore the attempts of those in positions of authority to demean or belittle others. All lives are important to God–Black, White, Asian, Latino, Brown, Red–no matter what a person believes or how they worship–we are important to Him. Since we are important to Him–we cannot sit back and allow mere human beings to disdain God’s plans for us for the sake of keeping political campaign promises that denigrate other human beings.

Therefore, as along as the current administration attempts to create hostile environments for others, we will continue to keep him aware of his shortcomings and fight for the rights of others to live in a safe, fearless environment.

Though I have yet to attend a march in protest of the decisions being made for others, I look forward to being in Washington in a couple of months. My presence in itself may not change a thing, but historically, it will change the way people view autocracy and it will certainly be a bookmark in my life, being on the right side of history, not the infamy of those who only had plans to lift themselves.

On a daily basis, I seek The Lord to see what He would have me say and I can say without doubt, that He is continually overseeing all I do to His glory and not my own. For I know, there is no glory I can seek for myself, but I can do all I can to encourage others to never give in to tyranny or a tyrant. So, my focus–on today like many other days, will to be make phone calls to legislators, tweet them, email them–doing whatever I can to make sure our voices are heard and to make a way for those who are living in fear–to know peace.

I pray all like-minded will join the battle against injustice and white privilege that allows others to feel superior to those who don’t look like them. I remind all–especially those pseudo-christians who think that Jesus was white–to learn the geography of the region in which He was born, read The Word with a pure heart and open mind and know–that God does not discriminate against a person because of skin tones.

Is This The Journey God Approved?

Is This The Journey God Approved?

In those days Israel had no king. And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking a place of their own where they might settle, because they had not yet come into an inheritance among the tribes of Israel. So the Danites sent five of their leading men from Zorah and Eshtaol to spy out the land and explore it. These men represented all the Danites. They told them, “Go, explore the land.” So they entered the hill country of Ephraim and came to the house of Micah, where they spent the night.When they were near Micah’s house, they recognized the voice of the young Levite; so they turned in there and asked him, “Who brought you here? What are you doing in this place? Why are you here?” He told them what Micah had done for him, and said, “He has hired me and I am his priest.”  Then they said to him, “Please inquire of God to learn whether our journey will be successful.”The priest answered them, “Go in peace. Your journey has the LORD’s approval.”

In reading all of Judges (the entire book), we see what happens to various tribes when they forsake God and look to men to guide them. Even though the Danites inquired of the priest for direction, they misused the information to attack those living in peace. They were the peace-breakers, not peacemakers.

When the colonists came to this land, they were escaping religious persecution and though they were still under the authority of the King of England, they forged their way across the ocean and settled in the land, already inhabited among those who lived in peace, but not for long. They spied out the land just long enough to see that the land was good and the people conquerable. So that’s what they did. They became peace-breakers and later claimed the land as their own, when it was not.

The prevailing attitude of those who claim to be “white nationalists” or “supremacists” is one of hatred, in the guise of “a christianity” unknown to God. Their christianity involves them being fearful of being extinct and to prevent their extinction, they revile and belittle everyone who doesn’t look like them. What they fail to recognize is that the God of Heaven, who came down to earth in the likeness of man in the person of Jesus, is Love and will not teach hatred of anyone, simply because they look different.

What’s revealed in the attitude of those who hate “non-white” people is the fact that they haven’t read or understood the bible and have no relationship with God. If their relationship with God was right, their journey in the land would not concern them for He would lead them in righteousness and a journey into peace-making, not peace-breaking.

It is apparent from the comments I read on news threads and the video clips I view that there are so many people out there who don’t know the history of the journey by the colonists to this land. I’ve said this before, and I guess I’ll just have to keep saying it, “America was not founded on Christianity or built by white Europeans.” The land was not called America until the white Europeans “conquered” the peaceful people and virtually stole the land from them, resettling them in specific areas to control them. The Natives of the land were not Christians, the belief was forced upon them, just as it was forced upon the slaves who were imported to this land. It was the slaves who “built this country” and invented much of what was used to increase the wealth of “white slave owners.”

Considering the gift given to us by France, once “Americans” declared their freedom from oppression, the statue of liberty–that rests in the New York harbor as a beacon of hope for anyone coming to the land, I find it totally bizarre that people do not want immigrants coming here. What is more bizarre is the support by many for a ban against Muslims–a religion, not an ethnicity–when we claim to welcome “all.” I guess the welcome has become a lie, since we now act as though we are superior to every other group of people.

Newsflash Americans–and I am one–whose ancestors were imported to the land–we are not superior to anyone and our country is younger than most. We are now proceeding to the edge of the cliff where all the “ideals” of democracy are being brushed aside by the menace of “nationalist” ideology and this journey–of hatred–will bring us all to the end as we fall into the precipice of fascism and tyranny.

Isolationism is key in the effort to “control the masses”(in fenced-like concentration camps already constructed in various states) along with false news and propaganda designed to make people believe what is not true. Only those who are blinded by hate will fall for the nonsense, but their growing hatred will cause much irreparable damage to an entire nation–if not impeded. We have no king–we have an elected leader, who is subject to the laws of the land, like everyone else. When a leader of a free nation attempts to control what news is appropriate for people to hear, they have reached a point where they should be removed. It is time to begin the impeachment process of all in the White House.

Can we see the similarities between the Danites and Americans? If not, we simply need to take a journey into the history of our nation and other world governments to understand what we see right now.

America has been a nation of immigrants, all looking to have a better life, regardless of their religious beliefs or the color of their skin and all need to be treated with respect, and in recognition of the Constitution which we say is our guide.

If we insist–out of fear–to continue this journey of hatred and superiority, we will indeed become extinct as so many other civilizations have–before us.

Deranged Leadership!

Deranged Leadership!

A prophecy against Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles.  I have commanded those I prepared for battle; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath— those who rejoice in my triumph. Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together! The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war. They come from faraway lands, from the ends of the heavens— the LORD and the weapons of his wrath— to destroy the whole country. Wail, for the day of the LORD is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. Because of this, all hands will go limp, every heart will melt with fear. Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them; they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. See, the day of the LORD is coming —a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger— to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. I will make people scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Like a hunted gazelle, like sheep without a shepherd, they will all return to their own people, they will flee to their native land. Whoever is captured will be thrust through; all who are caught will fall by the sword. Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated. See, I will stir up against them the Medes, who do not care for silver and have no delight in gold. Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants, nor will they look with compassion on children. Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the pride and glory of the Babylonians, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations; there no nomads will pitch their tents, there no shepherds will rest their flocks. Isaiah 13:1-20 NIV (Read all)

Babylon has taken up residence in the White House in the United States of America–once known as “the land of the brave and the free.”

When the citizens of a nation are “barred” from speaking truth, to appease a tyrant, there is no freedom of speech. 45 has violated the constitution on so many levels that I’ve lost count, but I am thankful for those who have the expertise and the means to express the abuse of power we have seen. If not checked by the legislative branch of government or the judicial branch, there will be a greater civil insurrection within our borders. The uprising will be be more massive and probably more intensive than the revolt against the British by the colonists and the civil war.

We see the blueprint being laid out before us and we know from a study of history that whenever a deranged leader is allowed to have power and abuses the position–chaos ensues and people rebel. Most of us have read history books–unlike 45 who is only interested in books with his picture on the front as evidenced by reports of books being removed from federal agencies and replaced with those who “praise him.”

What most people don’t realize is that in less than ten days, the ship in the middle of the sea is taking on water and no one seems to have the presence of mind to start the process that would keep the ship afloat in the middle of the storm. There is only one predictable outcome when the leadership refuses to believe–water is rising and the ship is sinking. There are no lifeboats on board and everyone on the ship will sink unless someone with courage and integrity finally takes control of the situation and starts a chain-bailout–of the water determined to sink the ship.

On the surface, it would appear that lawmakers have been deluded and blinded by the “lightning speed” at which executive orders are being signed, but reality–not alterative facts–will soon shake them out of their reverie when Americans exercise their right to hold elected representatives accountable for their lack of action.

Our constitution does begin with, “We the people,” not “We the elected ones” and the people–not only the 261 million who did not vote for 45, but all those who are now awake at last and regret voting for him–will arise and do whatever is necessary, by any means necessary to get our country back on the right track.

The God I serve–the Creator of all that was ever creator–is not a God of hate, but of love and we who know Him, know that love will always triumph over hate. And now, I trust only in Him, not those who say they know Him and yet demonstrate hate of others simply because they are different. We are told in God’s Word to hate “sin” not people. As long as God gives me sight to see–both naturally and spiritually–and finger joints that work, I will speak out against fascism, imperialism and other type of authoritarian government that defeats the purpose of democratic process.

Greater is He who lives in me

Than he who is in the world.

Fools and Money

Fools and Money

A prudent servant will rule over a disgraceful son and will share the inheritance as one of the family. The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart. A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue. Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool— how much worse lying lips to a ruler! A bribe is seen as a charm by the one who gives it; they think success will come at every turn. Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. A rebuke impresses a discerning person more than a hundred lashes a fool. Evildoers foster rebellion against God; the messenger of death will be sent against them. Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool bent on folly. Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good. Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the LORD detests them both. Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor. Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper; one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble. The wicked accept bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice. Proverbs 17:2-20, 23 NIV

A Wicked Person listens to deceitful lips, a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue!

Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?

Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.

The wicked accepts bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice.

One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor.

If we lived according to The Word, how much better would the lives of all be? Since we don’t, we continue to have problems and make problems for years to come for those who have had no input into the workings of the world.

When those in authority do not understand setting priorities, they create unnecessary burdens for others to shoulder.

Americans–in order to continue promoting ourselves as a competitive nation and one who harbors concern for all of its citizens–need access to a quality education and healthcare; our older citizens who have paid into Social Security and Medicare need those resources preserved; we all need to be able to breathe clear air and drink clean water.

Taxpayers do not need to pay a wall they cannot use for daily living.

Politicians need to exercise wisdom in all matters–keeping in mind–they work for the people and every decision made should be in the best interest of the people–not their personal agendas–to control others.
