A Fool and His Folly!

A Fool and His Folly!

For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly. Proverbs 5:23 NIV

All who are prudent act with knowledge, but fools expose their folly. Proverbs 13:16 NIV

The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception. Proverbs 14:8 NIV

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly. Proverbs 14:29 NIV

The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. Proverbs 15:2 NIV

Folly brings joy to one who has no sense, but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course. Proverbs 15:21 NIV

Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools. Proverbs 16:22 NIV

A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the LORD. Proverbs 19:3 NIV

The schemes of folly are sin, and people detest a mocker. Proverbs 24:9 NIV

I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. Ecclesiastes 2:13 NIV

At the beginning their words are folly; at the end they are wicked madness— Ecclesiastes 10:13 NIV

But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. 2 Timothy 3:9 NIV

The Word of God addresses the situation in the White House far better than I ever could. We have but to look at how actions led by the #WHidiot to see how The Word is revealed in all they do.

The end is not yet–we must be determined and persist and insist that Congress do its job and relieve us (all Americans) from the possibility of danger exacerbated by a fool and his follies. #Resistthefool and #Persist in pushing for the investigation of #trumprussia.

God is watching and He knows all there is to know and since He is truth, truth will be revealed for all the world to see.

If there was anyone in the White House or on Capitol Hill with integrity or honor, we would not have to suffer the foolishness of fools because they would simply admit their wrongdoing and we could all move on.

Foolishness!

Foolishness!

In the thirty-sixth year of Asa’s reign Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and fortified Ramah to prevent anyone from leaving or entering the territory of Asa king of Judah. Asa then took the silver and gold out of the treasuries of the LORD’s temple and of his own palace and sent it to Ben-Hadad king of Aram, who was ruling in Damascus. “Let there be a treaty between me and you,” he said, “as there was between my father and your father. See, I am sending you silver and gold. Now break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel so he will withdraw from me.”Ben-Hadad agreed with King Asa and sent the commanders of his forces against the towns of Israel. They conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel Maim and all the store cities of Naphtali. When Baasha heard this, he stopped building Ramah and abandoned his work.Then King Asa brought all the men of Judah, and they carried away from Ramah the stones and timber Baasha had been using. With them he built up Geba and Mizpah. At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him: “Because you relied on the king of Aram and not on the LORD your God, the army of the king of Aram has escaped from your hand.Were not the Cushites and Libyans a mighty army with great numbers of chariots and horsemen? Yet when you relied on the LORD, he delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.”Asa was angry with the seer because of this; he was so enraged that he put him in prison. At the same time Asa brutally oppressed some of the people. 2 Chronicles 16:1-10 NIV

Does anyone see the parallels from the past to the present other than me?

No matter how hard we try to leave God or His Word out of what unfolds on a daily basis, when we look–diligently–we find there truly is nothing new under the sun. The same wicked attitudes that prevailed in the hearts of those who turned from God (or never knew Him) exist today.

Despots–never have enough and are also willing to make deals with the devil. They don’t care about ruining a nation’s resources as long as they get what they want–attention and praise–but it all fails and God’s truth reigns.

Let’s see:

Who’s building a wall and is the wall to keep others out or us in?

Who owes megabucks to another despot who has no qualms in oppressing or killing people?

Who has incited provocation by another despot simply to create a distraction from an investigation in their involvement with the 2016 Election fiasco?

Who will not listen to those who present truth and instead relies upon those who will only tell him what he wants to hear?

God is not fooled by any of the nonsense and when it is all said and done–the truth will be revealed and those who dare to defy God and mistreat and misuse His children, will get their just reward. For The Word tells, “we will reap what we sow.”

For all the falsehoods and lies proclaimed against Hillary–we see now that the #WHidiot was merely projecting onto her that which resided in him.

He is the corrupt one.

He is the liar.

He is the warhawk.

He is the one who made money from the masqueraded attack on Syria that accomplished nothing.

He is the unstable one and unfit to serve the United States in any capacity unless he’s serving time in prison for all the heinous acts he’s committed.

He’s also the one who lacks stamina (a claim he constantly lodged at Hillary) and can’t get through a month without retreating to one of his golf clubs.

And with all the negative “Tweets” lodged at President Obama, we see further evidence of what he projected about himself. Yeah, he’s very “instinctual.” He’s not very “presidential” and no matter what he does–he won’t be.

But foolishness doesn’t stop with him–it continues on the back of those who supported him in the election and those who refuse to uphold their oaths in Congress. They, too shall know the wrath of God when they are “unseated” never to be seen in a public office ever again.  His base supporters will discover they voted against their own interests, if they have not figured that out, yet. The biggest losers will be those who believed the pathological liar about–non-existing good jobs with good pay, repealing ACA (hatefully known as Obamacare), re-opening coal mines and lowering taxes. Instead we get the decimation of everything established to protect the consumer.

If taxes are lowered–there will be no funding for schools, the poor, the undereducated, the veterans who served this country well, the seniors who worked most of their lives to support the governmental path, and the military will suffer when taxes don’t exist to pay for the costly results of an idiot. The only way, our country survives and thrives is for the most wealthy to pay more taxes so the needs of every citizen are met.

To do things any other way would be pure foolishness. But then–that’s what fools do. But don’t believe the one telling the truth–like Asa did and got angry instead. Anger will not repel God’s truth or prevent the inevitable from disobeying.

Just Watch

Just Watch

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;  they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.  “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91

“Call on Him, call on The Lord!”

When we call upon Him, acknowledging Him for who He is–The King of Kings, The Lord of Lords, the Great I Am, The Alpha and Omega, Our Rock, The Truth, The Light, The Way, Our Deliverer, Our Healer, Our Refuge–just watch and see what He does for those who love Him.

The terrorist in the White House will fail and all those surrounding him with all the lies and buffoonery will be the shame of the world, for they do not know God so they will not hear Him when He speaks. And those who support him shall know the wrath of God–measured by what they say–those who claim to know Him will suffer the most for when they say, “I know The Lord,” and yet will not live as instructed by The Lord, they lie and their punishment will be even greater.

Some of the Christian leaders who reluctantly supported 45 are now waking from the delusion and see him for who he really is and are backing away. Is it too late to repent and regroup–now ready to tell people the truth? They’ll have to try and see while the rest of us–just watch!

Those in Congress who are ignoring their oaths of office–will see just how much God does not like those who use and abuse the poor and the needy and yet support a pathological liar. Their time is coming–just watch!

Once a con man, always a con man. 45 conned his way out of paying contractors and conned banks into loaning him money by running a smooth sales pitch that made it appear that he was a successful business man. Watch closely at how he ran his businesses–especially the 17 failed ones. And then consider–how the others are only for  the rich;  for those who support him–his base supporters–the middle-class workers cannot afford to play on his golf courses or sleep in his hotels–they were conned. They bought the bull without close inspection and ended with a barren cow.

Because of his attempts to run America like one of his businesses–there will be many failures and loud screams and cries because he does not know that America is not a business and cannot be run like one.

Is there any hope for him? Only God knows. Is there any hope for the rest of us? There is always hope for those who call upon The Lord for He hears our cries and sees our plights and knows those who truly belong to Him–we can count on His Word!

Though things may appear chaotic, the truth muddled and minds deluded–just watch and see how God works on behalf of those who love Him. For God is not the author of confusion and He requires that all things be done decently and in order.

Where there is order–there is no confusion and peace reigns. Just keeping watching!

 

 

Waiting–For God’s Intervention!

Waiting–For God’s Intervention!

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5

Waiting to exhale–hoping every breath will not be our last–since the crazy just won’t stop!

Since God is not speaking to 45’s heart or if He is–45 is not listening, we can pray for those in Congress to hear God and obey and grow a pair.

So many adjectives–none with a positive connotation–were used in describing the press conference reporters were subjected to yesterday. “Unhinged, crazy, bizarre, off meds” are just a few terms used to describe the maniacal, dishonest comments made by 45.

He didn’t inherit a mess–country is in better shape than it was 8 years ago.

He didn’t win more electoral votes than anyone since Reagan–Obama won with 365 to his 304 (he said 306), and Bush with 425. Apparently his math skills are no better than his reading comprehension skills.

The White House is not running like a fine-tuned machine and we hear about all the chaos on a daily basis–if a person knows where to tune in–that is.

Every time he opens his mouth–insecurities are shown–he has to keep talking about the election win because he knows it was rigged in his favor and he’s fearful evidence will soon be produced. He’s getting ready to campaign for 2020 so he can keep the campaign funds raised for 2016. So much for his feigned riches–he garners by unethical use of other’s money.

His obvious lack of knowledge is continually demonstrated regarding other groups of people, and how he conceives what we know–so blatantly fascist–like he knows best for everyone, when he doesn’t know what’s best for him. We know fake when we see it and hear it–and nothing 45 says is true; it’s his alterative truth–lacking facts.

So, yes, I’m praying for Congress to get it gear and realize they work for Americans, not the president. Americans voted for them and Americans can vote them out! This country has been subjected to the greatest humiliation and embarrassment by a given leader since Bush. World leaders and their people are laughing themselves silly at him and us by proxy!

This is not funny--lives are at stake–all of our lives since he doesn’t think we understand the devastation of a nuclear war. I’d rather not find out and with all of the crazy he’s demonstrated, it’s possible that he’ll start a nuclear war because he’s so petulant and obnoxious, he’ll bully others into reacting rather than ignoring him. And since our republican congress members are reluctant to intervene (when they should), we simply need to ask for God’s intervention–stop the crazy.

Lord,

We’re waiting for You to intervene on behalf of those who love You and obey. We thank You for loving us enough to bring the insanity to an end and that right quickly. We thank You for exposing truth across Congressional members–and whoever is guilty of wrong-doing, bring it to the forefront so we can re-elect those who will care more about the country, than a political party’s agenda. We thank You for keeping us from the evil one and the evil residing in the White House and from those who promoted the evil–the pseudo-christians. Lord, shut the mouths of the liars and seal them with a hot sword–and bring repentance and peace to the land.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

God Hasn’t Forgotten!

God Hasn’t Forgotten!

I remembered my songs in the night. My heart meditated and my spirit asked: “Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?  Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time? Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand. I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed. The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth. Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the  earth trembled and quaked.Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen. You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. Psalm 77:6-20 NIV

No matter how disappointed we get with the seemingly ignored events of those in the White House, we must remember that God has not forgotten us. He numbered the very hairs on our heads, knows our thoughts before we ever think them, and has planned a future for us to prosper us, not harm us.

He did not promise we would not encounter obstacles on the journey to receive what He has in store for us, but we can be assured we will receive all He has for us because God is not a man that He should lie. Considering how he abhors lies and liars, telling a lie would never be a consideration for God. When, we read His Word and live it, we can count on His plans being fulfilled even when we don’t see how.

Just like He has not forgotten those who are waiting for deliverance from the evil in the White House, He has not forgotten those who perpetuate the evil and He will give them their due recompense for all the havoc and chaos they have created.

We may think we’ve gotten away with something when we shrug off the illicit behaviors that would cost people their jobs in a blink of an eye. God knows–and perhaps–He is allowing more humiliation to build before the fall occurs. Satan doesn’t have a problem with anyone rising to high heights because the fall will devastate. And he will take out his own army.

Therefore, if we trust God, we can trust that He is not ignoring the plight of America. He will deal with all those who are not acting like they belong to Him in Congress–all those Republicans who are “afraid of the president” and not the people who voted for them. They have forgotten, the “so-called”president didn’t elect them–the people did. God has also not forgotten those “church leaders” who promoted 45 as “God’s Choice” for president and they, too will reap their just recompense.

If we believe God’s Word is true, then we must know that none are exempt from receiving the recompense of their actions–no one–not the president or anyone else working in the White House–and violating the laws and policies of this land. The oath of office taken by the president, Congress, and cabinet appointees should have been taken seriously, for The Word tells, it is better not to  make vow, than to make a vow and not keep it. One would think–all those “so-called Christians in Congress” would know this. I guess they haven’t read it for awhile.

At any rate, all the world will see soon and very soon that though evil crept into the midst of things–God has not forgotten. Vengeance is His and He will repay–bigly!

Don’t forget–God has always used people-those who are willing to listen to Him and obey–to accomplish all of His plans. If God is speaking to your heart to get involved in the resistance movement (resisting against evil), don’t hesitate to act, while you yet have a chance.

Truth That Sets Free!

Truth That Sets Free!

So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.” Even as he spoke, many believed in him. 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.” John 8:28-32 NIV

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Galatians 4:16 NIV

My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins. James 5:19,20 NIV

There is truly something to be said about liberating truth. It sets us free–totally unencumbered from fear of being discovered in falsehoods–or as some are calling lies–alternative facts.

A Lie is A Lie

A Prevarication is a lie

A Falsehood is a lie

A Half-truth is a Whole lie

A White Lie Is an Ugly lie

An Alternative Fact is a lie

By any name you choose,

A Lie is A Lie!

Liars do, what prevaricators do—LIE!

There is no escaping the fact that those sitting in the White House at this moment–are liars all and there is no truth in them.

If they lie about the little things that mean nothing, what will say about the things that matter? They will do what they have practiced doing–lie and then try to spin the lie by lying more.

When we see the lies and recognize the liars for what they are–why should we even pretend there is anything honorable about them?

A lack of integrity–being truthful about all matters–leads to doubt and disdain of those promoting lies and when those promoting lies are advising others in leadership–in this case–the illegitimate president of the United States–who has already established himself as a pathological liar–what is the rest of America supposed to do?

We do what we’re instructed to do in The Word–we tell the truthcalling out the lies and the liars–no matter who they are and we publicize the truth–by any means necessary--so eventually–the scales will fall from their blinded eyes and they will see–truth as it is before them.

We have seen from the campaign cycle that we cannot count on the media to call out the liars when they’re being interviewed–though some are taking a different stance now–we still have to call out the liars–utilizing social media–and pushing the broadcast and print media to do the same.

What we have seen in the past few days is a concerted effort by those in the White House to distort truth because they know they are in the White House–due to the lies and rigged election. Trump is angry because he feels people are trying to delegitimze his presidency when in fact–he is not the legitimate president and he knows it–which is why he is so combative when confronted with the truth.

We have heard the phrase–“he won fair and square” which is a lie by itself. How is a win obtained by promoting false propaganda, lies and interference by Russian hackers a “fair and square” win? It would have been fair and square if Hillary had used the same tactics, but since she didn’t–who’s the corrupt one now? Trump and team of co-conspirators–including Putin. And if the Republicans are found guilty of collusion, they should all be set free from their collective positions in Congress!

There is something seriously wrong in our nation’s capitol–when the toddler-in-chief leads the nation, thinks himself above the laws and policies that have long established for the security of the country and to avoid the appearance of evil–refuses to abide by said policies and no one is checking him! The role of Congress is to maintain a balance of power–and unless Congress steps up and does their job–we now have lopsided government–and no truth shall ever be told by any of them because of their short-sightedness.

However, there is something we–the average American voters can do–we can re-call every elected official that refuses to do their jobmaking decisions that are best for all and keeping the toddler-in-chief in check. If they’re not willing to do their job, they don’t need to hold the position–pure and simple truth. And when they’re recalled, the people will be set free–to elect those who might employ more integrity and honor than those we see at the moment.

So gear up America–it’s time for us to take charge of our fate–by RECALLING EVERY ELECTED OFFICIAL WHO IS NOT DOING THEIR JOB! They are elected to govern according to the needs of the people, not their greed of power and status. IT IS OUR RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE AND WE SHALL!

From The Bible To Congress!

From The Bible To Congress!

One witness is not enough to convict anyone accused of any crime or offense they may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse someone of a crime, the two people involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the LORD before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time. The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against a fellow Israelite, then do to the false witness as that witness intended to do to the other party. You must purge the evil from among you. The rest of the people will hear of this and be afraid, and never again will such an evil thing be done among you. Deuteronomy 19:15-20 NIV

Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free. Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of one who gives gifts.The poor are shunned by all their relatives— how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will perish. Proverbs 19:1, 5-9 NIV

For all those who say–they love The Lord and obey His Word–we cannot ignore the fact that much of our constitutional laws are based upon the foundations presented in The Word.

Today’s blog is dedicated to those in Congress–those elected to serve the needs of all Americans and not just a few; those elected to make wise decisions for all Americans and not just a segment of America–not vengeful ones. It is the people–Americans who vote–who determine who the lawmakers are in great expectation that the laws will be just and equitable for all Americans. We, the American people who put you into office, also have the right to recall each every person who is not fulfilling the oath taken to serve the needs of Americans.

“I,  do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” (Oath of Office)

“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
— U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3

Since I have never chosen to run for a public office, I cannot claim to have any knowledge or experience in the process, but as an ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I can claim and affirm knowledge of God’s and His intent for all people living in harmony and peace and do so–every time I write a blog or a book–testifying of His Goodness.

As a community activist for over 40 years, I also know that corruption runs rampant in public offices because people–mere flawed human beings–are not perfect. However, being a “mere flawed human being–is an understatement when describing the current PE–Trump’s history–lack of any public service or altruistic conduct for any length of time is appalling in light of his current rant against Representative John Lewis.

Quite frankly, his lack of judgment and decency regarding the democratic process should disqualify him from ever holding a public office and he is certainly not “the legitimate president of the United States of America” with his ties and affinity to Russia. His ties are yet to be determined by your standards, but it would appear that with his son bragging about the amount of money pouring into the Trump Organization and the Dworkin Report, you have the two witnesses that settle that matter. We know from Trump’s own lips–(though with his propensity to lie one never knows what is truth), that he admires a murdering dictator, has developed an affinity to re-model our democracy to align with fascism, and thinks that Putin will be our friend.

I’m not sure what the vetting process is or should be, but it is obvious that a psych evaluation is needed before 1/20/17 and preferably by a reputable psychologist who has no personal ties with him. The “medical letter” Trump has already presented as proof of his medical history–on the surface is a joke and so is the doctor who wrote it–as a long time friend.

I would not have thought that members of Congress–both in the House and in the Senate–would have tied themselves to such a despicable person as Trump–who by the way will never be respected by me or many others. He has not earned respect and every time he opens his mouth–he digs deeper into the hole of total ignominy (disgrace; dishonor; public contempt). With public contempt and that should include yours–he will never be in a position to govern America when he cannot “govern himself.”

Trump lacks impulse control and self-discipline; he’s a pathological liar and sensationalism entertainer who cannot separate reality from his alternate universe. His personality disorders are leading him into making a mockery of the entire process of taking the office of President of the United States. His involvement–and I’m just as sure he was involved with the rigged election perpetuated by Russian hackers as the reports proclaim–either with knowledge and we know with approval from all he said during the campaign–should be grounds for his immediate removal from the position.

In fact, since it appears from every thing that has surfaced that he won the election by unfair and unethical process laced with corruption–the 2016 Election should be nullified and a federal election scheduled as soon as possible.

I’ve dedicated this blog to you–Congress–in the hope that your conscience will be your guide and that you will uphold your oath of office to preserve and protect the rights of all Americans as prescribed by our Constitution. Trump will not keep an oath–and he has proven that by all he owes money–with a signed contract–and he has shown total disdain for all we–those who love America–hold dear.

I pray you will hear The Lord speak to your hearts and you will obey to please Him, not me.

Lord, speak to the hearts of every person in a public office and especially those who proclaim to have a relationship with You. Remind them of Your Word and the obligation they have to defend the rights of the poor and needy, to judge all matters fairly and equally, and to uphold the oath they swore in Your name. Move upon them to set all wrongs right before lives are lost and wars declared. In Jesus’ name we pray and thank You, Amen!
