When Evil Frustrates!

When Evil Frustrates!

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on the LORD. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous. You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad! Psalm 14 NIV

Where are the true Patriots in the Republican party in Washington, DC?

Is there one–just one Republican–who speaks truth any more?

Is there one–just one Republican–who cares about the poor and needy?

Is there one–just one Republican–who is more loyal to country than “pledged loyalty to a man” who has no values other than greed and power?

Is there one–just one Republican–who cares more about their constituents than their party agenda?

Is there one–just one Republican–who is bold enough to stand up and speak out against the atrocious policies being implemented that discriminate against the poor and promote hatred?

Is there one–just one Republican–who is courageous enough to convince the party to put an end to this charade of a presidency that has the world laughing at America?

If there is one–then where are they and what’s taking them so long to stand up and uphold the oath of office they took or does that oath no longer mean anything?

Have they–succumbed to greed and need for power over doing what is best for the entire country?

Where is the  moral outrage of the so-called christians who voted for all the “negligent, obstructionists” who put evil in the seats of government?

It would appear to me, that everything we say–as Christians and Americans–we value has gone out the window with our current leadership and no one seems to care about the people or what they need. No longer do we see integrity and honor ruling in the hearts of those in position of leadership. No longer do we see patriotism honored by elected leaders who have apparently forgotten–the voters who elected them. No longer do we see those who have publicly taken oaths of office–uphold them.

OTW

But we–who truly know God and live according to His precepts and are loyal to Him–understand how God will frustrate the plans of those who frustrate the plans of the poor.

For this reason–there is fear and anxiety–overcoming reason and logic by those who plot evil or won’t stand against it.

For this reason–instability and anger–rests upon those who do not know God and will not obey Him.

For this reason–many Republicans–are afraid to face their constituents and hide from them.

For this reason–the American people–will seek those who care about them and change the political landscape from the red of anger and frustration and greed to the blue of hope and integrity and honor.

The frustration felt by those who have been ignored will result in a tsunami of blue waves that wash across this country in upcoming elections–no matter how much money–the Republicans spend–unless they have chosen to “rig more elections” like 2016.

God knows and He’s watching and His purposes and plans will not be frustrated by evil, for He has overcome evil and evil will be overthrown and cast into the pit of darkness, never to be seen or heard from again. Watch for it!

No Hiding Place!

No Hiding Place!

“Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast?For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there.”Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people,to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and, “This is the place of repose”— but they would not listen. So then, the word of the LORD to them will become: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there— so that as they go they will fall backward; they will be injured and snared and captured. Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem.You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place.Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through.” The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror. The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you.The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon— to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task. Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier; the Lord, the LORD Almighty, has told me of the destruction decreed against the whole land. Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say. Isaiah 28:9-23 NIV

“…for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” Sound familiar? Lies and falsehoods–propaganda used by foreign actors to create chaos and disruptions in America and tactics employed by the idiot in the White House during his campaign and continues with the short tenure in office.

There has never been such a blatant use of lies and falsehoods by a president of the United States–in our 200 + years of existence as a nation. The idiot–because of his insecurities wanted to do something better than Obama–has succeeded with his lies and falsehoods.  He is the most prolific liar and promoter of falsehoods ever known to reside in the White House.

Now, I know there are those who would disagree with me and that’s their right, but simply put–factual evidence outweighs partisan opinion.

Once again, I have to point out the facts as publicized and noted by those who are in a position to analyze the data under microscopic conditions. I have to say again, with the promotion of a false tweet–that Obama had wiretapped trump tower--the tweet was actually a signal to Russia that they had been caught. There is no other logical explanation for that tweet (paranoia).

At any rate, most of the lies and falsehoods are easily debunked by fact-checking everything anyone says from the White House. Even throughout the campaign, the surrogates knew they were lying and promoting falsehoods and they didn’t care. It was the plan to beat Hillary and it worked because there are so many naive and gullible people in America who drank the shake–believed every negative thing they heard about Hillary. This is what happens when people are desperate and frustrated. They believe the lies as the only viable alterative to providing them relief from their desperation and frustration.

No doubt there are many people who are frustrated with the “politics as usual” stance taken by most politicians. The real problem is–there are people who are in politics to benefit themselves–not their constituents and we see it all the time. Every politician who has ever gone to Washington has managed to obtain additional wealth, power and status, but few have actually promoted an agenda that would benefit all Americans. I get the frustration of those who felt “ignored and forgotten.” However, no worthwhile decision can ever be made out of frustration or desperation–we must always think things through.

I also know that many people voted out of desperation because of unemployment and the lack of coal-mining and manufacturing jobs. Unfortunately, those same people–who voted for trump out of desperation are going to feel the brunt of his policies more than most. Coal-mining as a viable economic industry is not going to return. There is no need for the coal and though it may seem like a “boon” temporarily, those who own the coal mines know the truth and they’re only going along with the “hoopla” so they can amass more wealth for themselves–not those endangering their lives going into the coal mines.

The bottom line here is that though the White House idiots-all thought they could hide behind their lies and falsehoods, they’re about to discover what life is like when the covers are pulled off and they are left completely exposed to the light of day and truth and they will experience the wrath of those they deceived.

If we really know God–we know there is no place to hide from Him or the truth. He can see beyond the water in the deepest sea, over the peaks of the highest mountain, and into every nook and cranny that exists. He knows and sees all and He hates a liar.

So lies and falsehoods are only a temporary place of refuge because Truth is on the way, exposing every lie and every falsehood and all who promoted them. There is no hiding from God.

Not Easily Manipulated!

Not Easily Manipulated!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. James 1:2-8 NIV

When trouble comes–for many–they discover their vulnerabilities– and then others take advantage of the situation, manipulating those who are vulnerable and not thinking clearly. For the Believer, we are told that when events occur in our life that test our mettle–we should welcome it–and discover just how strong we are and incapable of being manipulated by those who would attempt to do it.

How do we recognize the manipulators? That’s easy–they smile in our face, telling us anything we want to hear, attempt to explain away any negatives about them or a current situation, and then they convince us–for a price–they can make things better. The price they exact from the vulnerable depends upon the situation at hand.

For those who proclaim they have great business acumen–listen carefully and then do your research. Are they that great and who is saying so? Is it just them or does the entire business community confirm their greatness? How did they achieve their wealth? Were they born into it or did they work–using sweat equity–to accomplish their achievements? Did they take advantage of legal loopholes to get out of paying debts–leaving others destitute and broken? Are they selling a bill of goods or do they live by what they proclaim? Is there any documented proof of what they claim?

The double-minded–who can’t make up their minds about what they believe or what they want–are unstable in all their ways. How do we know? When a person proclaims one thing–one minute and then ten minutes later–change their position, they demonstrate their instability because they have not determined one course of action, but are easily influenced to travel any path that appears to get them where they want to go. And as they go–down one merry path into another–they are always plotting–ready to manipulate any losers who dare to believe them.

The greatest losers at the hand of a master manipulator are those who buy into the rhetoric of greatness and hope for things that are literally not possible. Many women have been seduced into relationships by master manipulators to discover later, they were manipulated into a situation because of their own vulnerability.

We divulge our vulnerabilities when we are needy, desperate, and frustrated with our lot in life–without Jesus in our lives. When a smooth-talker comes along who appears to understand us and offer us false hope–we grab at it–thinking we’ve finally found what we need. Unfortunately, by the time we’ve paid the price–giving into what the manipulator wants us to do–it’s too late and the time cannot be recovered nor the trust we misplaced in people.

How do we avoid being manipulated? We trust in the Lord and seek Him for wisdom in all we do. We don’t listen to the smooth talkers, the ones who can read us like a transparent book cover–we investigate and research–before placing our trust in any person. We dare to look at ourselves and see us for who we really are and plan to change our lives based upon the guidance of The Lord. If we need an education to get the job we want–we go back to school–shedding the anger and frustration from past lost opportunities and make the most of the new ones.

We don’t allow anyone to play on our weaknesses because we work not to display them, so others won’t know, by drawing strength from our loving God. With Jesus on our side–He will alert us to anyone attempting to manipulate us.
