Let The Lord Lead!

Let The Lord Lead!

Listen to my words, LORD, consider my lament. Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong; you destroy those who tell lies. The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, LORD, detest. But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple. Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies— make your way straight before me. Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongues they tell lies.Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.  Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield. Psalm 5 NIV

Is the Lord leading our already great nation? Too many (without express guidance from God) are saying that God is using Trump to bring people back to Him! Does God need to use deceitful tactics to bring awareness of who He is? Does God need to take “choice” from us to bring people to Him?

If that was the plan (and I sincerely doubt it), it’s not working. More people are turning away from those bastions of religious ardor than ever before. In fact, the attitude of a number of people is borderline hatred for anyone claiming to be a Christian. I was told that I couldn’t be a Democrat and a Christian. When I asked the person who said this, “why not” they responded by saying Democrats don’t believe in the bible.

NEWSFLASH! From what I see of Republican behavior, they are the ones who don’t believe in the Bible. Oh sure, they “select” a few talking points to justify what they do, but the bible should not be used for talking points, but righteous living before God. If a person spewing forth cherry-picked scriptures are not living The Word, what they say means absolutely nothing. They are not letting The Lord lead them anywhere other than to “seize opportunities to control the masses,” just like the Pharisees.

The more I talk to Believing Christians (not the pseudo-Christians–who profess a form of godliness, but know not God), the more I realize that people are running from those who claim to be Christians but don’t want to love others.

Let me see if I can make a case for what I see and believe (based upon The Word). The first thing I look at in The Word is knowing what I’m supposed to do–Love God and love others.  God gives each of us the right to choose what we do and He honors our choices--and leaves us to receive the consequences of our choices–good or bad. This is why I am Pro-Choice (which does not mean I am pro-abortion as some are saying–promoting the lie that a person cannot be pro-choice and a Christian).

According to The Word–Christians are to defend the rights of the poor and the needy, those who are vulnerable and don’t have a platform to fight for themselves. I have been involved with non-profits and in volunteering for many years–making sure the rights of others are not trampled and that they have access to what they need. This is the Christian walk–always considering the needs of others above self. Do we see that from Republicans or the rats scurrying around the White House?

Do I love God? More than life itself and have enjoyed serving Him. If He called me home right now, I would not be concerned about His final words to me for I know, I’ll hear, “Well done.”

How do I know this? I say what God says and do what He tells me to do. When I allow Him to lead, I cannot go wrong. Does He always take the road I’d like to take? No, and I often wonder why I can’t go the way I want to go. I can–He doesn’t force us to do anything nor does He make choices for us. He has planned our lives (Jeremiah 23:11) and if we want to obtain what He has planned, we must believe Him and follow His directions, not man’s.

How about loving others? Not a problem–I know how to love because of the love He pours into my heart–unconditionally, even the unlovable. That doesn’t mean that I like what others do or condone lifestyles that are not of God. I discovered a long time ago that we encourage people to come to Christ by how we treat them, not by preaching them into hell. Christ loves the sinner–so can I–but I don’t become a sinner to show them Christ; I live what I say I believe. If people don’t want to change who they are or what they do–they won’t and that’s not on me. My responsibility ends with my representation of who Christ is, not whether they accept and believe it.

And herein lies the problem with the “representation” of who He is by Republicans who promote a liar-in-chief. Many who have straddled the fence in coming to terms with Christianity have now chosen the other side–alongside the non-believers and atheists because they want no part of “Christianity” as demonstrated by pseudo-christians. I refuse to be a hypocrite, listen to them or support them since they lie to themselves and others about who they are.

That is truly the sad part. When people have an opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ, they have chased people away with their attacks and delusional beliefs that God would choose a mentally incompetent pathological liar to lead millions of people–into total chaos, pulling apart families, making people fearful and obstructing justice to try to keep their wrong-doings hidden. That doesn’t sound like the God of Heaven to me and it certainly doesn’t demonstrate who He is.

Fortunately for me and a number of others, we won’t have to answer to God for this folly when we stand before Him. On a daily basis, I seek The Lord for guidance and implore Him to help me get through another day, without resorting to the tactics I see from others. That does not mean I won’t use every avenue open to me to point out the hypocrisy of those in leadership positions or to let them know–they lie and mislead and we see it. I thank God for Him keeping my words–civil (just barely, but He does rein me in) so I don’t come across as a hypocrite.

My criticism of those in White House and on Capitol Hill is justified and needed in order to bring them to a place where if they never respond to me or others; they will not be able to stand before God and say, “they didn’t realize they were wrong.” There are a number of us who remind them on a daily basis that what they’re doing is wrong. We can’t make them do right, but we can keep letting them know just how wrong they are and we do.

Whenever anyone attempts to violate a person’s rights–in Christ or according to the Constitution, they are wrong.  Using bullying tactics and deceitful strategies and bribery to get others to do what they want is wrong. Separating families who have committed no crimes and just want the opportunity to have a better life is wrong. Yeah, yeah, I know there is a “legal” way to obtain entrance into this country, but desperate people often do desperate things in order to save the lives of their family–especially when children are involved. So what happened to “defending the rights of the poor and needy?” With those who love Christ and have more love to share with others, we’re doing just that. It’s the others–the pseudo-christians–who are not being led by The Lord.

What Did You Miss?

What Did You Miss?

“Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness. “Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and do not show favoritism to a poor person in a lawsuit. “If you come across your enemy’s ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to return it.If you see the donkey of someone who hates you fallen down under its load, do not leave it there; be sure you help them with it. “Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.  Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty. “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the innocent. “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt. Exodus 23:1-9 NIV

ATTENTION: EVANGELICAL LEADERS/PSEUDO-CHRISTIANS

I guess you missed reading some of the bible when you chose to lie to people. I don’t have time to go into all the details, but just from what the world has seen–you stand to be judged for the lies you promoted about 45. How does it feel to know the world is laughing at America and the totally useless buffoon you elected as president? Do you feel good about lying to people, now?

We are watching a daily circus–a clown show in which the big tent is now the White House and all the players–lost sheep, looking for a way out of the madness.

The global buffoonery with his lies is not even funny. He lies about terror attacks. He lies about the media being fake news. He lies about the media being the enemy of the American people. He lies about his taxes. He lies about his connection and ties to Russia. He lies about removing himself from his businesses. He lies about his intellect. He lies about his business acumen. He lies about his role in creating job growth. He lies about “inheriting a mess.” He lies about being the “only one who can fix things.” The bottom line is–he lies and you promoted the imbecilic pathological liar to your constituents. Why? Just why?

Was it worth it? Now, we’re all going to pay for your stupidity and lies saying God chose him. You know you lied and the rest of us–who actually have a relationship with God–knows you lied. I would not want to be in your shoes in the end–when we must all give an account to God for the things we have done. “So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God” (Romans 14:12). I didn’t vote for a person who has no regard for the lives of those outside a womb in endorsing legislation for the mentally unstable to purchase guns. I didn’t vote for a person who cares nothing about the environment and deregulated all the safety precautions so people could have clear water and air and safe food production. I didn’t vote a person who who fires others simply because they dare to speak their minds–and not agree with him. I didn’t vote for a person who unilaterally wants to remove all people who are not white in America. Don’t bother to deny it–you know it’s true. You did this–now own it.

I’m so thankful that I know the first human being God created was a person of color and that God in His infinite wisdom cares about all of His creation–not just those who migrated to colder climates and their skin tones changed. But that’s what you believe right? You think that “white” is the right skin tone and all others are to be dismissed, right? Apparently, you missed a few history and geography lessons and totally missed what happened in Genesis. Don’t take my word for it–read it again with a map in your hand.

Your lack of understanding about God’s Word and His intent for all mankind is astounding! How you can call yourselves promoters of God’s Word when you lack understanding is–criminal. I’m guessing–the donations made to your respective churches or the promises made–had you feeling this was all worthwhile. You drank the shake and brain cells were scrambled. That’s the only excuse I see for what you’ve done. Fortunately, I do not have to answer for you–you do.

When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:7-15 NIV

Perhaps, you–the pseudo-christians are merely fulfilling your role in God’s plan–being the tool Satan uses. For God warned us in His Word that those who know and love Him–are not ignorant of Satan’s devices and how he does things. I guess you missed that or it was missing in your bible.

For long as I have breath in my body and the use of my limbs–I will continue to advocate for the poor and needy and rail against religious debauchery and its leaders who lead people astray--causing confusion and promoting lies to accomplish an agenda that is not worth all the destruction that results from it.

May God have mercy on your souls and all those you convinced to believe a lie.

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!
