Unfolding Lies!

Unfolding Lies!

BREAKING NEWS!

Most people are so tired of that banner that many are not paying attention to the content discussed. So let me point out this glaring tidbit of information and if we all just “think” it through, we can see light at the end of this very tiring, dreary, tunnel.

Fact: Jared Kushner had a number of meetings with Sergey Gorkov who was appointed by Putin to head a bank in Russia.

The Russian banker Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner met with in December is viewed by U.S. intelligence as a “Putin crony” and a graduate of a “finishing school” for spies who was often tasked with sensitive financial operations by Putin, according to multiple U.S. officials and documents viewed by NBC News.

Sergey Gorkov, 48, graduated from the FSB Academy, which was chartered in 1994 to educate Russian Intelligence personnel. He has long served Russian President Vladimir Putin in critical economic roles. Most recently, Putin chose him to head of the state-owned VneshEconomBank (VEB). As the Russian state national development bank, VEB has played a critical role in blunting the impact of U.S. sanctions against Russia by finding other sources of foreign capital.

Before that, Gorkov was the deputy chairman of Sberbank, Russia’s biggest bank, also state-owned, and also under U.S. sanctions since 2014. NBC News

Fact: Kushner inquired of the Russian ambassador in how to get a “secret line of communication with the Kremlin.”

Fact: Kushner made inquiries about manipulating data analytics which helped to rig the election.

Fact: Most of the trump team were confident in a win because they knew about the Russian hacking and promotion of false propaganda.

Fact: All of the trump team will lie–even when the truth is obvious and right in front of our faces–they will present their “alternative facts” which are blatant lies.

Fact: The surrogates speaking on trump’s behalf are actually his enablers, covering up his deficits and mental instability.

Fact: The entire GOP leadership in Congress is complicit in the situation which is why they won’t agree to subpoena trump’s taxes or uphold their oath of office in all of the ethical violations–nepotism, conflicts of interest, treasonous behavior in proclaiming the press, “the enemy of the people.”

Now, the “Facts” as listed are all a conclusion based upon media reports and for the most part, can be verified with a simple search.

Here’s the conclusion that needs microscopic investigation. If Gorkov was trained to spy and to recruit and Kushner met with Gorkov on a number of times, and Putin appointed Gorkov to handle sensitive (possibly illegal) banking transactions, it would be a logical to suspect that Kushner had been recruited as a spy and used to undermine the democratic process in order to gain access to loans for his business. Since we know that trump trusts Kushner implicitly, it’s not a far stretch to believe that Kushner convinced trump to go along with the election rigging.

The other alternative conclusion would be: Putin has something on trump that is terrifying him and he agreed to go along with the entire election rigging to keep from being exposed.

Either way–however it happened–watch them all lie to cover the lies already told. Kushner is not an innocent, naïve player here. He’s a calculating, manipulative traitor who is only concerned with getting what he wants. He wanted Comey fired, he got it. He wanted Bannon out of the way, he got it. He wanted a position of authority in the White House, he got it. He doesn’t care how he gets what he wants as long as he gets it.

By now–it is an established fact that trump is a pathological liar and prefers those who pledge loyalty to him become as pathological as he is in lying. They have and they will lie–under oath, not thinking about the fact that when a good prosecutor asks questions–they already know the answers.  There will be no spinning in the last days.

Comfort Is Ours!

Comfort Is Ours!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves we receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 NIV

As I read this, I am reminded of the daily struggles and uncertainty many feel with our current situation in Washington. But I want to encourage all to know, that no matter how dark and ugly things get, know that there are millions of people working to right the injustice that we have endured with a rigged election.

From the beginning–I understood when trump screamed, “it’s going to be rigged! They’re going to steal the election,” I knew he was referring to his team. I didn’t know how, but I knew it would be those who supported him who would help with the election rigging. And I said so, though there were some who tried to convince me I was wrong.

Now, we see unfolding, daily just how it was done. It has already been determined that Russia was involved because they favored trump and hated Hillary. The players–Flynn, Manafort, Page, Ryan, McConnell, Kushner, Burr, Sessions, DeVos and others are all being exposed, one-by-one and it will be revealed how trump conned 63 million people into believing he cared about them.

Don’t despair! Be comforted in the knowledge that truth–not alternate facts–will prevail and even many of those stalwart surrogates are beginning to cave. I watch their body language and even though they try to defend the indefensible, it’s beginning to wear them down. Kingston, Miller, McEnany, Scott, Dennard, and others look frayed as they try to convince–there is nothing to expose in the #trumprussia investigation. We all know by now when they’ve reached the end of their delusional defenses, when they leap to…”but Hillary, …but Obama” refrains.

The end is near (but near is relative in a timeline controlled by others) and we will all be able to breathe a sigh of relief when we get all the con artists out of the White House and put into prison. While we wait–know there are millions praying and actively involved in making sure this type of travesty never happens again. Our phone calls to legislators, emails, postcards, tweets, are making an impact and we will not be ignored. Now is not the time to give up; now is the time to dig in, taking a firm stand against the wiles of the enemy who governs from the WH and reigns on Capitol Hill (the high places Paul warned us about).

Comfort is available for all who stand firm in their beliefs and their actions to fight against tyranny and fascism. We will win–one way or another!

Persist With Righteousness!

Persist With Righteousness!

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment? Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance? But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.”To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism. Romans 2:1-11 NIV

The Word speaks for itself–when people have a heart to receive by allowing Holy Spirit to reveal it. But then, there are some–who think they know and don’t.

Karma is about to play a big role in our government. All those who wrongly judged President Obama and Hillary Clinton are about to see what the Hamanesque effect is all about.

This is not my judgment against anyone–though I have been speaking for months about the crisis in the White House with an incompetent leader at the helm. It is notable to see how God’s Word applies to every aspect of our lives–whether we realize it or not.

I encourage folks to strengthen a right relationship with God–not religious institutions or political party–but in assuring access to Heaven through Jesus Christ. When we fully understand how powerful love is–we’ll be able to live in peace and harmony–defending the rights of the poor and needy.

We see the results of those who have apparently “pledged their allegiance and loyalty to an incompetent leader” in order to faithfully represent a political party ideology, rather than faithfully representing their constituents in positions of leadership in our country. Greed for power and money changes people and see it every day in Washington, DC. No longer do those elected leaders care about the voters who put them there; they only care about their own agenda–to make themselves richer.

It’s time for a change and we must persist in righteousness in all we do. We can and we shall change the landscape in this country and elect people who care more about their constituents than they do about their own personal agendas–driven by hatred.

Power of Truth!

Power of Truth!

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 8:29-32 NIV

When we have done all we can do–the only thing is to depend on God and the power of Holy Spirit giving courage and boldness to all who speak truth.

For today, with the testimony of those who know truth–when truth is spoken and received–it has the power to destroy the lies and plots of the enemy and set us all free from the debacle that resides in the White House.

On the road to freedom–truth will be the foundation on which we rebuild trust and respect in the world.

Repent!

Repent!

“Now, fellow Israelites, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. Acts 3:17-20 NIV

You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.” Acts 8:21-23 NIV

In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.” When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, “We want to hear you again on this subject.” Acts 17:30-32 NIV

When we completely turn away from things that we know God does not like, and turn to Him, God honors our repentance and forgives our sin. If we do not repent and continue in the ways of ignorance and wickedness; He does not forgive us and will hold us accountable for our actions. 

For all those who think they have no need to seek God’s forgiveness–they have only themselves to blame for the judgment that is sure to come.

Get into God’s Word, know how He wants us to live and treat others–loving unconditionally, and defending the rights of the poor and needy and whenever we fall short–quickly repent and seek His direction and forgiveness.

Truth–The Great Divide!

Truth–The Great Divide!

Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.“Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.“Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”Matthew 12:22-37 NIV

Every day, brings new challenges, new insights, new bizarre behavior–all keeping many of us, just shaking our heads.

Whenever anyone in the Republican says foolish things–they confirm what I’ve already concluded–based on the things they say and do. If “truth” is desired in the situation, then no one should fear or rail against an investigation that should reveal truth. However, it would appear with statements made by Rand Paul and some others that, “Investigating your own party is a waste of time” (They spent millions investigating Hillary with one committee after the other–but she was a Democrat). What I glean from that statement is, “Even if we discover truth, we’ll not reveal it because we’ll all be exposed.”

Now, some may argue the conclusions of my premise and that’s their right to do so. But I have said from the beginning there was something fishy–rotten fishy–in the mix with the campaign run by the Republican party. But the smoke is clearing and soon, everyone will be able to see what I see.

It is now established by the intelligence community that members of the Trump campaign were communicating with Russian operatives–a year before the election. After the primaries (or even before), a deal was made with the devil and the Republicans. “Nominate me and I can guarantee a straight ticket win.” Some didn’t believe it, but eventually he was able to convince them as to how he could make such a statement. They knew–they all knew and that’s why they don’t want an investigation into the truth of the matter. For the truth–when known–will create a great divide–one greater that what we already see in this country.

Many who were duped into believing the great orange lie, or were just to angry so see clearly through red-hot emotions--voted for a manipulative, pathological liar whose only goal in running for president was to enrich himself. I’d be willing to bet–if truth is allowed to be exposed by the investigations–they’ll he suddenly be struck with dementia and won’t remember anything. I’ve watched him during a videotaped deposition to know how this is all going to play out. It will be just like his denying on Air Force One last week that he didn’t know about Flynn lying to Pence. He lies with a straight face, cold heart, and no conscience.

At any rate, he’s already decided to “campaign for 2020” this weekend for he needs constant affirmation or ego stroking to survive the day-to-day boredom of acting like a president when we all know–Bannon is actually the president and 45 is just doing what he’s told to do (because he doesn’t have the intellect to figure things out on his own).

And oh yeah! We finally figured out–(most of those watching unfolding events) that republicans are afraid to go against 45 because then he won’t sign their asinine bills. The deal with the devil is exposing all the demons and truth will indeed cause that great divide–of loyalties when they scamper to try to save their own butts.

I wonder how those hypocritical pseudo-christians feel now–knowing they perpetuated the lie that God chose Trump to be president. Deluded people chose Trump and voted for him; that was not an act of God, but of manipulation and deception. Soon they will discover how lying on God has devastating consequences.

Here’s to–the Truth–exposed for all the world to see!

No Excuses!

No Excuses!

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment? Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance? But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism. All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares. Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and boast in God; if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth—you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? Romans 2:1-23 NIV

We no longer have an excuse to condone treasonous behavior occurring in the White House. Of course, for those who still believe 45 is God’s choice for president–what can I say? Apparently, nothing that will convince that 45 is in the White House because of the will of misinformed, duped people who listened to the lies promoted against Hillary. How do I know?

Look–if you will–without bias–totally objective–at all the events unfolding at the White House. I have long ago determined that whatever comes out of 45’s mouth is projection about what he’s doing.

He called Hillary corrupt–when he’s the corrupt one–never hesitating to bully or bribe others to get what he wants.

He called Hillary a liar–if people don’t know by now that 45 is a pathological liar (with a straight face), I’d have to conclude they’ve been living under a rock with no access to unfolding news. He knew about Flynn from the beginning which is why Bannon chose him.  And to top it all off–every surrogate who speaks on his behalf is a pathological liar–must be criteria for working for it.

He blasted Hillary for a security risk to the nation–now that the truth is being exposed–his claims are laughable–especially in “light” of his handling a crisis call in the midst of a dinner with “paying” guests who had access to information intended for the president only.And there is his use of an “unsecured phone” and his aides, using personal email accounts. Where have we heard that being a problem–before? Right–Hillary’s emails–those hacked and released by WikiLeaks.

Ignorance of the law (or the constitution) is no excuse and should not be tolerated. The Republicans also knew about the hacking, but said nothing because it benefited them. Now, for everyone who promoted 45 as God’s choice–judgment awaits–because obviously, your agenda was more important that the security of this nation.

The end is near–but how soon all will be exposed will be determined by those who have a backbone and the balls to stand up against the republican obstacle wall.

We cannot count on the FBI to be truthful because of the conduct demonstrated during the election. We cannot count of the DOJ and the AG is part of the collusion because they’re afraid of 45. We can count on the ACLU to take the case to court–if necessary–and if Democrats pursue resolution to all the chaos in the White House.We also cannot ignore the threats or distraction by Russia now cruising along the East Coast–in an apparent attempt to help keep people distracted from demanding truth from the White House.

Now, we all understand why the Senate was pushed to rush through all the nominees for cabinet positions–to bring America to its knees as every agency created to safeguard, is now being demolished.

However, with all the unfolding evidence of wrong-doing by politicians, we who know The Lord and live according to His Word–have no excuse to not speak truth when we know it.

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!

Vengefulness and Greed!

Vengefulness and Greed!

But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and believing in him. John 12:4-11 NIV

Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over. When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.” Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?” Jesus answered, “You have said so.” Matthew 26:14-16, 20, 21,25  NIV (Read all)

When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. “I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.” “What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.” So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.” Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.” Matthew 27:3-6, 9, 11 NIV

Throughout the history of mankind, some have given into the urges that propel them because of jealousy, vengefulness and greed. This is the account of Judas Iscariot with whom most of us are familiar–his role in betraying Jesus and his demise, already prophesied before Jesus came.

In American History, we have our own Judas--Benedict Arnold–who betrayed America in 1780 by attempting to turn over West Point to the British for 25,000 pounds. Why? He was upset that Congress would not agree to pay him what he thought he was worth. He was not successful, and escaped to England, where though he served for the British, he was never counted a hero. He died from a disease caused by anxiety in 1801. His conscience probably ate him alive.

In the 21st Century, we have a president-elect who openly requested the Russians to hack into American email systems–though he declared it a joke, many are wondering. Considering his vengeful character–and the fact that he hated President Obama’s joking about him in 2011, was he joking? It would appear that his entire plan to become president is a joke since he’s too busy running around thanking people (and bribing them) for an election win that is suspect–for many.

On November 9, 2016–the first two people to congratulate him on his win were David Dukes (KKK) and Putin. The tweet from Dukes reminded him that the south helped him to win (with probable voter suppression). And now–he (PE), thinks the United States and Russia can get along, “famously.” Speculation has been made before about Russia’s involvement with the election results and Julian Assange has admitted he released hacked emails–intentionally on a timeline– to discredit Hillary.

And now, on December 10, 2016–the Intelligence Community is confirming Russia’s involvement and interference with America’s election. With all of the false news and propaganda (also tactics used by Benedict), gullible people believed the lies and promoted them–creating a hatred for Hillary Clinton she did not deserve. And before anyone asks–yes, I am biased in this situation because I hate lies and liars and abhor those who perpetuate destructive propaganda. It’s my nature to promote truth–whether people want to hear or not.

Reminder–PE said, when questioned about a donation to a Florida official, that he gives money to officials to get what he wants. So, is there any reason for us to refute the possibility that he bribed officials during this election to get what he wants? Syllogistically speaking, this is how it would work.

If a man says he will pay off public officials to get what he wants,

                 And said man wants to be president and eventually, wins an election,

                 Then said man, paid off public officials to get what he wanted.

While there will be those who are loyal to a fault to this PE–some may actually begin to stop and think–reflecting upon events of the past few months and put two and two together for themselves and realize–we have a traitor headed for the White House. And when they realize the role of the “chief priests and elders” (modern day church leaders), they will realize how some were willing to sell their souls in order to promote their agenda. I pray their collective consciences will eat them alive and they will repent before their congregations–openly–admitting the falsehoods promoting.

I’m also praying that our Electoral College is paying attention to all the unfolding events and will adjust their plans for voting–so that the true winner–who had no help from an interfering foreign actor will be given the votes she rightfully deserves. As for the PE, I have no idea if he even has a conscience, but I pray it won’t lead him to hanging himself, but he will be alive and well–reminded forever of his role in history in mocking our democratic process with a  heart of vengeance and greed propelling him.

Lord, we need Your help and guidance right now before the enemy can cause any further damage to our nation.

Mature Disagreement!

Mature Disagreement!

Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you. But we must hold on to the progress we have already made. Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your lives after mine, and learn from those who follow our example. For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. Philippians 3:15-18 NIV

As much as I’m tempted to preach this message, Paul has already done a better job than I’ll ever do because if we who profess to believe God, do The Word, there is no other example for us to follow other than Him.

The concept is applicable to any situation we encounter–in our homes, in our communities, in our churches, in our government–no matter where we are–we must learn to disagree, agreeably–without hatred governing our thoughts or our deeds, but we simply acknowledge the points of disagreement–open the door for discussion and find solutions to problems–we don’t create problems because of our disagreement.

Disagreement doesn’t mean that we ignite or fuel hatred to draw others to our side by name-calling or taunting chants–that really only emphasize insecurity and immaturity.

While we have riled up hatred for one candidate by chanting erroneous thoughts of “lock her up” we have seen a deluge of defamatory literature, logos, and other paraphernalia demonstrating a “huge” lack of maturity of the part of anyone participating in the malaise of insanity.

And then–there is the “call” for foreign powers to conduct espionage against a political candidate that sounds like treason to me. The fact that Trump made the statement (and later back-pedaled with a lame excuse) is enough to make many wonder what he will do with the security briefings he’ll sit in on. Will he sell what he learns to the highest bidder? Someone needs to get a muzzle for this man before he has missiles pointing at us from all directions.

I haven’t strayed from my point of mature disagreement; I’m simply making a point as to why we must look at the level of maturity of any candidate attempting to do anything. I’m not alone in my assessment of the situation and though my sphere of influence is limited, I have to speak to issues that bear no resemblance to a person knowing Jesus Christ and certainly not having a relationship with Him. “Out of the abundance of the heart (whatever resides inside a person) the mouth speaks!”

I pray that no one (in their right mind) will ever consider Donald Trump an example as to how we should live or treat people. Trump is not a savior and he cannot fix anything–he cannot even fix his impulses to say foolish things.

I’m not in total agreement  (there are some points of disagreement) with Hillary Clinton or the progressive movement, but I’d rather see her in the White House–someone who cares about people–rather than a self-deluded person–who only thinks about himself, leading this country.

Everyone has a choice to make and I would urge all to exercise maturity and wisdom in deciding who can best handle being the leader of this country–caring about all Americans!
