The Battle!

The Battle!

This day the LORD will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:46, 47 NIV

Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes?Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. 1 Corinthians 14:7-9 NIV

The battle indeed is The Lord’s and I am so grateful that He spoke to the hearts of those who would hear Him and they did. Regardless of the reason for hearing Him, they heard Him and now millions of people can be assured of maintaining their health coverage–until the next round–and there will be a next round because the leadership in the White House is ego-driven and will not accept responsibility for the “loss” experienced by the Republican party at the hand of the Republican party.

Already he’s back-pedaling–saying he never said he’d “repeal and replace Obamacare in 64 days.” He’s right–his claim was that on “day one” he’d repeal it. How quickly he forgets when things don’t go his way.

As with so many other things that were supposed to occur on “day one” we see (and many of us saw it then) most of what he said was simply empty rhetoric because he had no clue as to how government works. Being in the White House as a leader is not the same as being the CEO of a private business. It is hard work as Ryan so aptly put it. “We’ve been the opposition party for ten years and it was easy. Governing–taking the lead–is hard.”

The Resistance remains committed to oppose any and all legislation that favors the rich and vilifies the poor. We will remain vigilant in watching the proceedings into the Trump/Russia connection and the increasingly clear “treasonous acts” committed by those in the White House. We will continue to pay bombard legislators with our concerns about all policy issues by phone, email, tweet and participation at town hall meetings. We are The Resistance and we will stay in the battle for the victory we know will be sustained because we know–The Battle is The Lord’s!

Thanking God for hearing and answering prayer and for the strength and the courage to be obedient when He speaks–no matter what the outcome or how many others oppose what I do or say. In the end–it is to Him–I give the glory for all things.

For more on the subject of the epic, “Trumpcare Fail” look me up on Medium where I will address the issues in more detail from a political platform.

The Need of Esthers!

The Need of Esthers!

That same day King Xerxes gave Queen Esther the estate of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came into the presence of the king, for Esther had told how he was related to her.The king took off his signet ring, which he had reclaimed from Haman, and presented it to Mordecai. And Esther appointed him over Haman’s estate.Esther again pleaded with the king, falling at his feet and weeping. She begged him to put an end to the evil plan of Haman the Agagite, which he had devised against the Jews.Then the king extended the gold scepter to Esther and she arose and stood before him. “If it pleases the king,” she said, “and if he regards me with favor and thinks it the right thing to do, and if he is pleased with me, let an order be written overruling the dispatches that Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, devised and wrote to destroy the Jews in all the king’s provinces.For how can I bear to see disaster fall on my people? How can I bear to see the destruction of my family?” King Xerxes replied to Queen Esther and to Mordecai the Jew, “Because Haman attacked the Jews, I have given his estate to Esther, and they have impaled him on the pole he set up. Now write another decree in the king’s name in behalf of the Jews as seems best to you, and seal it with the king’s signet ring—for no document written in the king’s name and sealed with his ring can be revoked.”At once the royal secretaries were summoned—on the twenty-third day of the third month, the month of Sivan. They wrote out all Mordecai’s orders to the Jews, and to the satraps, governors and nobles of the 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush. These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people and also to the Jews in their own script and language.Mordecai wrote in the name of King Xerxes, sealed the dispatches with the king’s signet ring, and sent them by mounted couriers, who rode fast horses especially bred for the king.The king’s edict granted the Jews in every city the right to assemble and protect themselves; to destroy, kill and annihilate the armed men of any nationality or province who might attack them and their women and children, and to plunder the property of their enemies.The day appointed for the Jews to do this in all the provinces of King Xerxes was the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar. A copy of the text of the edict was to be issued as law in every province and made known to the people of every nationality so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. The couriers, riding the royal horses, went out, spurred on by the king’s command, and the edict was issued in the citadel of Susa. When Mordecai left the king’s presence, he was wearing royal garments of blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen. And the city of Susa held a joyous celebration. For the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor.In every province and in every city to which the edict of the king came, there was joy and gladness among the Jews, with feasting and celebrating. And many people of other nationalities became Jews because fear of the Jews had seized them. Esther 8 NIV

There is a spirit of Esther residing in the land–through the many who are boldly standing up and opposing injustices towards all and we need more–Esthers (whether male or female) to stand against the evil emanating from the White House.

In order for their to be true peace in the world, the world must stand together against evil where it finds it and that’s not just against North Korea, China or Russia or even ISIS. For the evil we must first fight starts in America–against those who plot evil against all Americans with their limited views and perspectives of life because of their hatred of others. “Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.” Proverbs 10:6 NIV

When the head of anything is rotten or evil, only the stench of being rotten will flow downward which explains all the “rotten” we see and smell in the White House. And the one who could have been an “Esther” won’t even dwell in the presence of evil. Since there is so little respect for his wife, he probably wouldn’t pay attention to an appeal from her anyway.

Now it is up to all who know the story–or are least willing to read it in its entirety–to rise up and sound the alarm, making sure all know the drill to get ready to fight back and know victory in the Name of Jesus!

The edict has been written and promoted for all to see and a date has been set for the evil to strike at the hearts of all who know compassion and love and we are ready to fight back–and totally decimate the evil that dares to approach those who belong to God (in deed and not just words) so that our victory will be heard and felt around the globe–we #TheResistance and we will never give in or cave to the dictates of evil.

The Enemy!

The Enemy!

The faithful have been swept from the land; not one upright person remains. Everyone lies in wait to shed blood; they hunt each other with nets. Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire— they all conspire together. The best of them is like a brier, the most upright worse than a thorn hedge. The day God visits you has come, the day your watchmen sound the alarm. Now is the time of your confusion.Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend. Even with the woman who lies in your embrace guard the words of your lips. For a son dishonors his father, a daughter rises up against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. Micah 7:2-7 NIV

There are seemingly more enemies surrounding us than friends, but the most despicable enemy are those influenced by deceptive persuasion. Satan–will don the garment of the righteous in order to deceive and when their hearts are not right with God, he is successful and then will things fall apart, they stand in wonder as to how it happened.

Everyone saying, “Lord, Lord” is not a follower of The Most High God and in fact, we are cautioned in The Word that many will stand before Him and He’ll say, “Depart from me, I never knew you.” Let’s look at what Jesus said:

Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ “Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matthew 7:20-27 NIV

So are we building our house on a rock or on the sand?

It would appear that with all the upheaval and chaos emanating from the White House that the 2016 Election created a situation in which the presidency and the credibility of America was built on sand and when the storms continue to rage, it will soon be washed away.

Historically, not many have ever seen such turmoil in the White House or such disdain from other countries because of the leader in it as we see right now. The enemy–those who gain access or entry into situations by deceit and cunning through the auspices of wrong doing and outside interference should never expect peace for there will be none. Whenever a “dictator” sets out to beguile the people using false propaganda and outright lies, they may have persuaded the masses for a moment, but the moment passes as soon as the blinders fall off and people realize they’ve been duped.

Ironically, not once has there been an evil judge or king or dictator who did not fear for his own life, yet they had no qualms about destroying others.

Karma bites and it’s about to take a big bite out of those responsible for the madness resulting from the rigged election.

But it’s not only those who rigged the election who will feel the pain, but all those who pretend to be Christians–the pseudo-christians who because of their own agenda–lied in order to bring about a desired result.  They won–but what did they win? Based upon what I’ve seen posted by various people from across the land, the pseudo-christians have won the disdain of many who now see them as hypocrites and that includes the entire Republican party–that so-called party of family values who have endorsed and embraced the very epitome of ignorance and evil and condones the wrongdoing in the White House.

Anyone who does not do the will of God, “defend the rights of the poor and needy,” and cannot love as God loves–unconditionally, is the enemy. Did not Jesus tell us that there are but two commands by which we must live and will be judged by? “Love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind and love one another as we love ourselves.”

Where is the love of a the fake-president residing in the White House? There is a love of greed and power, but those are also covered in The Word–practices of evil. When a confirmed and publicized “white supremacist” is sitting at the table with others because he “tricked” the president into signing the order, but the president won’t rescind it–what does that tell us? Can we see any good fruit in that action?

Do we see good fruit or rotten fruit in those given positions as cabinet members who have ties with Russia and refuse to disclose truth?

Do we see good resulting from evil in establishing people who disdain government in government positions? Is that why those who knew nothing, know nothing, and don’t care, are guarded by others at taxpayer expense?

Every foolish decision has consequences and the cost–from a financial perspective is shouldered by the tax-payers who actually pay taxes and those who circumvent paying taxes keep are rewarded. Something to think about it.

Though Satan is the enemy of mankind, those influenced by him are the enemy of everything right and good. The media is not the enemy of Americans–the clown in the White House is the enemy with his autocratic notions and attempts to establish tyranny.

The Americans who did not drink the shake are not fooled (and there are more of us than those who drank the shake) and we are not standing by idly waiting for the storm to rise; we are establishing our faith on The Rock and He will prevail against all the enemy attempts to do to destroy a nation.

In order to defeat the enemy–we must know the enemy and how the enemy plans to divide and conquer. We do, for we see it on a regular basis and will not cave. We will resist the impulse to give in and we will be victorious over evil.

We Will Keep Going!

We Will Keep Going!

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.Moreover, no one knows when their hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so people are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them. I also saw under the sun this example of wisdom that greatly impressed me: There was once a small city with only a few people in it. And a powerful king came against it, surrounded it and built huge siege works against it. Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man. So I said, “Wisdom is better than strength.” But the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are no longer heeded. The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good. Ecclesiastes 9:10-18 NIV

Anyone who has ever run a race knows a runner doesn’t put their maximum effort into the first stretch, they hold back a little reserving their energy and strength for the final stretch. They pace themselves so they won’t run out of energy and can complete the race. Not everyone can win, but everyone can finish.

In this particular time in our country, the resistance groups must pace themselves so they’ll be able finish the task–and the win is for all, not just one person.

For with this administration, anyone with eyes can see–the leadership doesn’t care about all Americans, but only a handful–mostly wealthy people--who don’t need healthcare assistance since most of them have stock in the insurance companies–who are currently ravaging anyone who pays insurance for anything.

More and more, I see what people are saying on social media and many of the delusional who voted in favor of 45–for whatever reason–are expressing regrets. They did not realize the rhetoric they heard against the elites was spouted by an elitist–born into wealth, never having to work for a living, but used to having their way about everything and ready to throw a tantrum when defied. This is what children do who were never disciplined.

I mean really, just how many of the 62 + million who voted for 45–amassed wealth based upon their father’s wealth or from what they inherited? How many of them owned their own jet? How many of them filed multiple bankruptcies, leaving their creditors holding the bag? How many bragged about using other people’s money to invest–or risk? How many of them are so narcissistic they only care about themselves? Any of them suffering from megalomania?

I don’t know the answers to the questions, but I can imagine, that not even 1% of those who voted for 45, have a clue as to what wealth really is. Most–are simply hoping to have an income and have no desire to obtain wealth. With the exception of those in Congress, who have shown themselves not only to push their agenda that benefits the wealthy, but leaves the poor–in much worse shape than before this recent election, ever took place, they will never know wealth.

The lies told about “bringing good jobs back,” in coal mining and steel mills was a deliberate falsehood pushed to get votes, but will not materialize simply because the world is no longer dependent upon coal as an energy source, and steel is cheaper produced in other countries. But just for show–regulations against polluting water sources by coal mines was lifted, so now the poor–can drink poisoned water.

Those who voted for 45 out of hatred for Hillary are learning–too late–that it is never a good idea to allow emotions to rule in a person’s life. The real rub is–most are seeing that everything negative said about Hillary was a lie, but is really true of 45. Too little, too late the stage has been set, and there may not be any winners at all.

But there are some–resilient, committed, folks who are resisting and opposing the plans of the evil ruler and with wisdom, they will prevail as we are seeing the widening cracks of chaos that dwells in the White House.

We will not give up and daily we are growing in strength, diving into deep end of opposition, prepared for the battle and exercising wisdom every step of the way. For in the end, it will be wisdom that saves the day, though many may not understand it.

With the wisdom exercised by those who know and understand history, we can see elements of tyranny in the White House and we are alerting everyone we meet of the danger and evil that exists to isolate America from other countries so we are left to our own devices, stripped and left naked, exposed for the enemy to walk in and take over. And like those in the past who kept going–until victory was obtained–we too, will keep going, until all the evil has been exposed and routed into the justice systems, designed to keep a balance in our democracy.

We will not give in or give up–we will continue this fight–for justice and liberty for all–we will keep going and nothing the enemy does to discourage or dissuade will stop us. We’re keeping a steady pace, holding back until the last stretch and we will prevail.

We will–no matter what–keep going!

An Apt Description of 45!

An Apt Description of 45!

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. He boasts about the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD. In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God. His ways are always prosperous; your laws are rejected by him; he sneers at all his enemies. He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.” He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.” His mouth is full of lies and threats; trouble and evil are under his tongue.He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent. His eyes watch in secret for his victims;like a lion in cover he lies in wait. He lies in wait to catch the helpless; he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.His victims are crushed, they collapse; they fall under his strength. He says to himself, “God will never notice; he covers his face and never sees.”Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless. Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, “He won’t call me to account”? But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.Break the arm of the wicked man; call the evildoer to account for his wickedness that would not otherwise be found out.The LORD is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land. You, LORD, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror. Psalm 10:2-18 NIV

Thanks to the Psalmist, we have an accurate description of the despot in the White House–both of them.

Now, we can count on The Lord to do what He does best--use those who want to be used to His glory and not their own. We will defend the rights of the poor and the needy because we are commanded to do so in God’s Word.

We will move forward, standing firm, never wavering–speaking out against injustice wherever we find it.

We will continue encourage one another in the service of The Lord no matter how many times we hear “an evil report.” We will believe the report of The Lord. No weapon formed against us shall by any means prosper--not the threat of hindering others from entering into the land of the free and the brave; not the intent to gaslight–brainwashing the gullible–for they refuse to see what is right in front of them.

We will walk by faith and not by sight and see this battle through to the end and know victory in Jesus’ name.

We will stand against the wiles of the enemy for we are not ignorant of his approaches or strategies to commit evil or influence others. Nothing he does shall harm us and he shall be held accountable for all of his wicked deeds and those who follow him or are easily influenced by him to do evil, shall suffer the same fate.

The Lord is a strong tower and we will find safety and strength in Him!

Where Our Confidence Should Be!

Where Our Confidence Should Be!

Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint. Proverbs 25:19 KJV

Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.  Psalm 118:4-9 KJV

No matter what happens for the balance of this day, the year or my life, I know in whom I can trust and my complete confidence is in God–who knows the end from the beginning.

Though my confidence is in Him, I know that nothing worthwhile happens without active engagement. Therefore, I will be actively engaged in fighting injustice while I yet have the ability to breathe on my own and use my fingers to encourage others to stay in the battle until victory is won.

This was the attitude of the colonists who fought to get out from British rule and won forming the United States of America. These same Americans–those who resisted oppressive rule and domination–made provision for all who followed them to do the same–without reprisal from authoritarian leaders.

This is America–this is not a communist region under the thumb of a dictator and we will not be dominated by an ego-driven maniac who lacks self-discipline, wisdom and knowledge.

Every battle for justice has been won because people stood up and actively engaged in the process--for the Suffragettes, for Civil Rights, for Women’s Rights, to protest Viet Nam involvement and for so many other matters–we stand up and speak up when we see our rights being trampled upon by those who would attempt to rule by bullying tactics. 

Silence implies consent in matters where people submit and cave to the dictates of others. Resistors are always the group of people who make change happen–we will not be silent and we will not stop standing, speaking up, marching, and writing opinions–expressing truths and giving voice to those who think they are not heard.

We will maintain our stance  like Noah who was mocked for building an ark and talking about rain; like Moses in the presence in the Pharaoh; like David standing against Goliath; like Job who refused to listen to his friends; like John the Baptist crying in the wilderness; like Jesus who knew what He had to do to save mankind, like Paul who though once an enemy to those “in the way” became a lion in promoting “the way.”

We will not be silent so don’t expect us to be quiet in the face of danger from a megalomaniac who does not know how to think and whose handlers are afraid to tell him the truth. 

The real impediment to peace in this country are those who think in boxes and never see the bigger picture. For one or two agendas, they promoted a pathological liar as God’s choice for president. They overlooked the welfare of all Americans to appease the few. And now, the welfare–of all is in jeopardy–the sticky wickedness held in the web of deceit.

But my God–the creator of all things and without whom nothing was ever created–is faithful and just and it is in Him, my faith and confidence will continue–in spite of having a clown in the White House whose only concern is what appeases his ego and those who stroke it.

Lord, thank You for giving us the courage and strength to stand and remain standing against the wiles of the enemy, being a voice for those without a voice, resisting the evil that tries to encompass and rule us. We praise You for all Your mighty acts and for victory in all things that honor You. In Jesus’ name I pray and thank You, Amen!

Not Crushed When Secrets Revealed!

Not Crushed When Secrets Revealed!

Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:1-9 NIV

Why is it that truth makes people nervous and anxious?

If too many people understand truth when it’s told by people who love truth, those who don’t tell truth, fear exposure for the lies they’ve told. Why do people lie? They lie to cover truth and to control others or situations. For if they did not lie, they would have no control over others or the situations.

I know the truth I write is getting to people and I always know when it’s hitting home. Why? They have nothing to say unless something I say nails them. And since so many people are upset by the truths I write, I’ll continue to write them the way God gives them to me and I’m guessing their consciences will continue to be pricked–by truth.

The travesty that many people witnessed yesterday (and it was a travesty), will soon be evident to all–in America–and is already evident to many in other countries. America has allowed a loud-mouthed, cowardly bully to become the tantrum-throwing-toddler-in-chief. His supporters are delighted–giddy with giggling and gloating–for now. They refused to see or accept truth when it was told and shortly, they will know because all the lies will be exposed and truth will reign whether we like it or not.

Evangelical leaders will be exposed for the part they played in promoting a liar and a puppet in debt to Russia.

The media will be exposed for the part they played in placing ratings before truth and industries will collapse under the weight of guilt.

Every elected official will be exposed for their greed and desire to control the masses when the masses have not given them a mandate to do anything. They forget–just as the enablers tend to forget–261M people did not vote for the lying toddler-in-chief.

american-mandate

If people have not recognized the seriously flawed, mentally unstable character that now resides in the White House, it is only because they refused to accept the truth and have made the toddler-in-chief, their god. He is not invincible and he will be exposed and all those who were colluding with him, will be exposed and the world will watch as our nation comes to a standstill watching the judgment take place.

cognitive-enablers

But hey, don’t take my word for it. Research always helps me to understand what I see and research The Word of God and for scientific and professional understanding, I research those areas as well. It doesn’t take a genius to see the writing on the wall. Toddler-in-chief is not going to make America great again because the only people he cares about is himself and his family. The “people getting back power” are all the old white men who will make sure they keep their millions and billions and the poor and the needy will remain in that state. That’s the simple truth.

For the complicated truth to be understood one would have to remove the blinders from their eyes and unstop their ears–see and listen–to what is being done and said. Then align it with everything going on in secret meetings and undisclosed investigations, knowledge that is being kept hidden, while our nation is at risk of being transformed into a Russian region.

patriotism

For those of us who are resisting the toddler-in-chief’s agenda, we know that we must stand up and speak out. If the colonists had not resisted the rule of England, we would not be Americans. If Dr. Martin Luther King and so many others had not resisted the slights against Black Americans, we would not have known opportunities or have received equity in treatment in so many areas. If Jesus had not resisted the Pharisees and the status quo of that day, we would not know salvation through His shed blood. No, we will resist and will not desist until victory is won and all has been exposed, with the expulsion of the toddler-in-chief.

But God knows all and I’m thankful for the insight He gives me to know all is not lost. Though we may be disappointed for a moment, the victory is His and we will all understand it by and by.
