What Are We Doing?

What Are We Doing?

In the LORD’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart. To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. Haughty eyes and a proud heart— the unplowed field of the wicked—produce sin. The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right. The way of the guilty is devious, but the conduct of the innocent is upright. Proverbs 21:1-8 NIV

The way of the devious:

  • Lie
  • Distract
  • Avoid
  • Deflect
  • Deny
  • Project
  • Subterfuge
  • Blame
  • Hide

The way of the innocent:

  • Integrity
  • Honor
  • Compassion
  • Openness
  • Truthful
  • Responsible
  • Accountable
  • Trustworthy
  • Honest

Fanfare and distractions, always grandstanding to distract from the ever-revealing incompetence. If a person doesn’t know what they’re doing, but wants others to believe they are hardworking and competent–they grandstand–showboat–put on airs for optics because they have no evidence to prove their worth.

That was the show the entertainer provided for Washington yesterday--spending tax dollars to grandstand–7 buses to cart 100 Senators from Capitol Hill to the White House when it would have been more expedient (and physically healthier) for 5 people to walk to Capitol Hill–especially when 4 of them went to Capitol Hill to address the House. How foolish was that and how foolish does the #WHidiot think the American people are?

All the drama from the drama queen for what? According to a number of Senators and most of the Republican–nothing new was learned and most concluded the trip was simply for optics--to give the appearance of something extremely important being imminent, but it was more a show–summoned by the “wannabe dictator” so the world of television would see the kind of power (he thinks), he wields. Of course, the security for a classification discussion was hurriedly modified since there is no such place in the WH that would accommodate the size of the crowd. Not much thought went into what was done. No evident planning or consideration given to the nature of the conversation.

And on top of all the buffoonery, we’re told it’s all about N. Korea–who the #WHidiot has provoked, but is now trying to sell the idea that N. Korea is an imminent threat to America. Bullying and blustering tactics to distract from the FBI investigation may eventually cause the loss of millions of lives, and all this–because we have an idiot in the White House who would rather risk the lives of Americans and those within range of N. Korea’s missiles than to tell America the truth about his involvement with the Russians and their meddling in the 2016 Election.

People (many on television) are saying that Kim Jong-un is a crazy man, but he can’t be any crazier than the bullying idiot we have in the White House. And I’ll keep calling him an idiot until he leaves the Oval Office–in shame or on his own. Kim Jong is right–the United States is being aggressive in its tactics to send warships to the area in an attempt to get N. Korea to back down. They consider the action a threat and are prepared to defend themselves. If another country sent an “armada” to settle off our shores, we’d consider that a threat and prepare for battle as well. The United States is in the wrong and no matter what the idiots– who will lie to the American people on behalf of the head-idiot-in-charge, say–I know they all lie to cover his behind.

Foolishness, foolishness, all is foolishness as we discover with his “tax reform” that bilks the poor and inflates the bank accounts of the rich, and will blow up the deficit and put us into a vulnerable economic position for decades to come. But the idiot doesn’t care about us–he only cares about how much money he can make and the gullible–thought he cared about them. Oh how I wish I could inspire gullible people to think for themselves or at least get information from credible, reliable sources other than Fox News (the ultimate in fake news). They are an entertainment network, not a news network and that discovery is easily made with a search online.

So, what are we doing to counter the foolishness? Some are sitting back complaining, some are wringing their hands, some are rejoicing (the rich who own the munitions factories), some are contemplating suicide, some are just walking zombies–not knowing which way to turn, and me–I’m planning to run for president in 2020. That’s what I’m doing! What are you doing? I’ll leave it to you to determine who is devious and who is innocent based upon the above-mentioned traits.

Provocation!

Provocation!

But am I the one they are provoking? declares the LORD. Are they not rather harming themselves, to their own shame?“ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: My anger and my wrath will be poured out on this place—on man and beast, on the trees of the field and on the crops of your land—and it will burn and not be quenched.“ ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go ahead, add your burnt offerings to your other sacrifices and eat the meat yourselves! For when I brought your ancestors out of Egypt and spoke to them, I did not just give them commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices, but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you. But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward.From the time your ancestors left Egypt until now, day after day, again and again I sent you my servants the prophets. But they did not listen to me or pay attention. They were stiff-necked and did more evil than their ancestors.’“When you tell them all this, they will not listen to you; when you call to them, they will not answer. Therefore say to them, ‘This is the nation that has not obeyed the LORD its God or responded to correction. Truth has perished; it has vanished from their lips. Jeremiah 7:19-28 NIV

Wow! This pronouncement against all who do not seek God and obey Him and is just as relevant today as it was then!

TO THE EVANGELICAL LEADERS WHO TOUTED THE #WHidiot AS GOD’S CHOICE:

Do you see what happens when God is not consulted? Do you see what happens when truth perishes from your lips and you promote lies? Do you understand–yet–how your lies and promotion of this idiot can bring irreparable harm to Americans–all over the globe? If you do not understand the danger your lies and promotion of an imbecile then you are just as responsible for what he does as he is.

TO THE SUPPORTERS OF THE #WHidiot:

Are you still giddy with excitement of his illegal win of the election? Do you see him promoting or acting on your behalf? Does eliminating your healthcare make you scream with joy? Does the possibility of losing your loved ones–both male and female–in another war excite you beyond belief because of his reckless rhetoric? Aren’t you just tickled pink that your tax dollars are paying for his weekend excursions, his children’s security detail, his wife’s security detail, the construction of a helipad at Mar-a-largo, and the launched missiles that have cost over $200 million dollars? Are you happy yet? How about those good paying jobs–have you gotten yours and aren’t you just thrilled that only the rich will benefit from his proposed tax reform? Doesn’t that make you want to just jump and shout with joy? Did you know you were also “electing” the offspring of an idiot to be in charge of policy decisions? Well, did you?

Since you chose to believe the liar-in-chief–are you ready to accept responsibility for the fact that America will never be as great as it could be because of the madman at the helm? I know you believed the lies he spouted because you voted for him and promoted all the “fake news” about Hillary–aren’t you just super-proud of yourselves?

TO THE RESISTANCE:

Don’t get weary in doing what is right in order to save us from the idiocy brought upon us by lying “religious-pseudo-christians” and the “gullible, frustrated white middle class workers” who simply didn’t know any better.

Stand firm in pushing elected leaders to do their jobs. Call, write, Tweet. Never let them forget how they got their jobs.

Stand firm in pushing the Department of Justice to dig as deep as need to dig to make sure truth surfaces about all the involvement by those in the White House that manipulated the 2016 Election.

Stand firm in your resolve to make sure, when one gets weary, another encourages and  keeps up the pace.

Stand firm in your resolve to push the media in staying focused on the investigations and not all the distractions #WHidiot is creating to delay the process.

For those of us who know–and have an intimate relationship with God–we know the truth and we will continue praying that truth will save us and will not promote false news, provoking all the other crazy imbeciles who would love nothing more than to “show us” their might.

The Word tells not to provoke God, for fathers not to provoke children and we should know better than to provoke the enemies of America with foolish rhetoric. If we’re going to provoke anything from God–let’s provoke His protection in our obedience to His Word.

Hold Onto The Word–No Matter How It’s Obtained!

“So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.” (2 Thessalonians 2:15-17 NIV)

In the days of the prophets–those used by God specifically to speak what God wanted them to say, they encouraged the Children of Israel to hold onto God’s Word and obey.

Beyond the prophets of old–Jesus and those who followed Him–said the same thing–hold onto the Word and obey.

Near Paul’s end, he encouraged all–not just those in Thessalonica, but all who would believe and obey the Word–whether they heard it directly from Timothy or others sent to them or by the letters he wrote to them.

Today, there is no excuse for anyone to claim they have no access to The Word. The Word is being preached on television, preached in churches on just about every corner, taught in bible studies in homes across America, and streamed on the Internet. Bloggers who are faithful Believers are constantly explicating The Word in order to break it down so all who read can and will understand. Bible apps are available for every type of digital technology, anyone could own. And yet–so many either won’t believe or obey The Word of God.

For those of us who will continue to proclaim God’s Word–we know and understand the consequences of our actions. People may not like us or follow us on social media, but God is pleased and our goal–to please God is obtained.

I’m always amazed at some who follow me on Twitter–especially when my profile clearly identifies me as a Believer and Follower of Jesus Christ. I guess some don’t bother to read the profiles or the posts before deciding to follow me and then quickly unfollow me when I post something that contradicts what they believe or rather–reveals the foolishness of unbelief in the Most High God.

The unfollows don’t bother me–I simply shake my head and smile. But no matter how many people unfollow me–I will hold fast to The Word and continue to explicate it as God directs me. If something is said that convicts others of sin and wrongdoing, Amen! The Word–if taught correctly–should convict all of sin and encourage us to live to please God, and that includes the one who writes the blog. I know what I’ve written has often hit me over the head and made me realize just how much growing in grace I have yet to do. And that’s okay–The Word–sharper than a two-edged sword–cuts going in and out. What He gives me to say is not just for those who read it, but for the one who writes it. Ouch! I’m not immune to convicting power of The Word.

Now, even though I study The Word and profess it, gladly with the least provocation–I realize just how much I have to learn. I don’t think I could live long enough to reach a place where I could legitimately think–I’ve learned it all. So, even though what I write may sting others, it has found it’s mark in me, but I will hold onto The Word, no matter how it’s obtained and allow The Word to wash me, thoroughly cleansing and igniting desire to know more.

This day, I am encouraging all to study The Word, hold onto The Word and obey and get ready to receive God’s promises, fulfilled in your lifetime.
