Have You Heard?

Have You Heard?

Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust. Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings. Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing. With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him? As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it. A person too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot; they look for a skilled worker to set up an idol that will not topple. Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing. No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff. “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;  but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:15-31 NIV

We have seen with our own eyes,

The impact of hate and lies,

Why we cannot depend upon man,

To improve our lives and save our land.

Rolling back regulations that safeguard American consumers demonstrates the lack of concern with the quality of life for all Americans because the idiot in the WH is so consumed with hatred of his predecessor that he cannot think beyond his hate.

We have known for some time that he is thin-skinned and a cowardly bully. His criticisms of others in the same office were relentless, but now that the office occupied by him and the criticisms are directed at him–he can’t handle the criticisms or the truth. And all of a sudden, since the media prints and broadcasts truth, everyone is ganging up on him and it’s all fake news.

Have you heard about all the “fake news” he postulates?  Let’s look at some:

  • President Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
  • President Obama wire-tapped his phones at Trump Tower.
  • There was an act of terrorism in Sweden.
  • He is worth ten billion dollars.
  • He has no connection with Russia.
  • The Trump/Russia discussion is a hoax.
  • Climate change is a hoax.
  • He has a great brain and the “best words.”
  • He’s a great negotiator.
  • He “will be the president for all Americans.” (still waiting to see this)
  • He’s responsible for job growth indicated for February 2017.
  • He’s responsible for Ford increasing their production.
  • Obamacare is a disaster and will implode. (only if he sabotages with reduced funding)
  • “I and I alone can fix it.”
  • “I know more than the generals.”
  • “On day one…” (and then lies about what he said)
  • Hillary is corrupt (projection of himself).
  • Hillary is a liar (projection of himself)
  • Hillary is a murderer (projection of himself and the lives lost in two military events since January 20, 2017)
  • Russia is our friend. (He’s too stupid to see how he’s being used)
  • He’s a great businessman (not evident unless he counts all the people he stiffed not paying them or the bankruptcies)
  • Running the country is like running a business. (America is not a business)

This list could go on for another 2000 words at least, but my time is limited. We cannot trust anything 45 says because he is a pathological liar and has no acquaintance with truth in any form. His hatred of Obama is the driving force behind all the slashing of the necessary agencies in Washington and he and Bannon are determined to destroy our nation. Our hope cannot be in him or any of the GOP leadership who are obviously in cahoots with him to undermine the security of the nation by catering corporate interests and their ability to get richer without concern for the safety of others.

Our hope–just in case you haven’t heard–is in the One who created all things and without whom, nothing was ever created. We cannot get allow ourselves to be exhausted by the daily onslaught of foolishness coming from the White House or the lies promoted and parroted by Sean Spicer and other surrogates, who apparently either haven’t heard or don’t care, just how stupid they sound trying to defend the idiot in the White House.

Don’t stop paying attention to what’s revealed in Washington, but don’t lose hope because of it; use it to prepare for the storm and onslaught of health issues that are inevitable with the decimation of the EPA and the lack of appropriate healthcare if God doesn’t move upon the hearts of those in Congress.

Only The Lord can change the outcome of what buffoons do. He knows them and He knows they won’t listen to Him, but they will cave with enough pressure from those the buffoons seek affection. Remember–God has warned us through His Word what happens when fools are in charge of anything.

The Storm!

The Storm!

The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The LORD takes vengeance on his foes and vents his wrath against his enemies. The LORD is slow to anger but great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and dries it up; he makes all the rivers run dry. Bashan and Carmel wither and the blossoms of Lebanon fade. The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it. Who can withstand his indignation? Who can endure his fierce anger? His wrath is poured out like fire; the rocks are shattered before him. The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of Nineveh; he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness. Whatever they plot against the LORD he will bring to an end; trouble will not come a second time. Nahum 1:2-9 NIV

There’s a storm coming! Batten down the hatches and prepare to withstand the torrential winds of vengeance and hatred, with all the word salads flying about in the chaos that is bound to cause all sorts of destruction.

Twitter rants storming across cyberspace, buoyed by insecurities and hatred and incompetence.  Empty rhetoric designed to make people quake in fear, yet they are shaking and quaking with laughter that refuses to stay under cover of politeness and dignity.

“The fool, the fool,” cry those watching the whirlwind of words that are a mockery of the “great mind” espousing “great words” that only only a limited third-grader would utter. And yet, those who refuse to see the truth beyond the clouds of emptiness keep up their rallying cries, thinking that’s all they need to see a change in the pattern that’s about to upend their lives forever.

“The lies, the lies,” cry those who can see, but for some reason refuse to do anything to stop the turbulence rumbling closer to the surface and about to crack the earth wide open to expose all the hate and corruption created by a family of wannabes.

When all the corruption is exposed with all the players that stirred the pot of chaos and hate and disdain, then the world will watch the treasonous acts be paid in full and the cry heard will be the one urged against another, “Lock him up! Lock him up!”

And if people don’t watch their backs, the cry will be, “Lock them up,” and the house of cards in the heart of Washington, DC will collapse as Russia watches gleefully for the dust to settle and they can move in–tearing down any vestiges of integrity and honor that may have escaped to survive by bullying and derision, and if necessary–death by rebellious incursion.

The storm is coming folks and only those willing to know truth from fiction, resisting the alternative facts will survive the rumblings from all over–the Middle East and Asia to the Northern most points of Russia–calamity because the uneducated and ill-informed, and the pseudo-christians,  chose a mocker and enemy of God to govern in the White House.  The mocker who mocks the disabled and blasts cyberspace with lies against others, who cannot govern himself with even a modicum of discipline and this is why we are where we are–left to deal with the storm of stupidity.

Beware, be careful and be wise–prepare to survive the storm or be crushed in its path.

Are We Learning?

Are We Learning?

A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth. It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart. Frustration is better than laughter, because a sad face is good for the heart. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure.  It is better to heed the rebuke of a wise person than to listen to the song of fools. Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless. Extortion turns a wise person into a fool, and a bribe corrupts the heart. The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride. Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions. Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun. Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it. Ecclesiastes 7: 1-12 NIV

Does it make sense to go through life never learning anything? As imperfect, flawed human beings, we are all subject to making mistakes and God doesn’t have a problem with our making mistakes; He has a problem with our not learning from them.

Consider the toddler who wobbles when learning to walk. They are trying out something new and inevitably they fall more than walk standing upright trying to make it to a destination. Children–are marvelous human beings–they are determined and adventurous and most never give up.

I remember when my grandson first walked. The distance was short–from one person to another who was sitting at the dining room table. He made the first few steps–holding one finger in the air as his balancer, but miscalculated the distance in getting to his favorite person and in his excitement, tumbled forward and hit his head on the edge of the chair. Of course, he howled and we were quick to apply an ice pack after making sure he was not seriously hurt. He was held and coddled for about ten minutes until his squirming made me put him down. He stood by the chair and turned around–and made his way back to his friend, without falling this time. Excited, he plopped down on the floor, crawled back to me and stood up, ready to do it again and he did. Within an hour, his relentlessness inspired him to continue walking until he had made it from one room to another–still holding that one finger in the air, but he was giddy with excitement–knowing that he could do what the big people did. He learned–even though he fell a few times–he never gave up.

Determination and relentlessness is what gets most of us through life’s journey. We may fall, but when we keep trying–we eventually reach our goal and we learn along the way, how to do it better.

When I look at the news and see the anger and the foolishness that people exhibit regarding their choice in politics–I wonder when they’ll learn–hatred is not the answer. When people attack others simply because they don’t agree, there’s a lesson to be learned. When people keep doing foolish things and think they’re going to get away with it, there’s a lesson to be learned. When people do things they think are conducted “under cover of secrecy or darkness” and get caught, there’s a lesson to be learned.

Here are a few lessons that should have been learned by now by those in the White House:

  • Once your name is tainted, your integrity will be questioned.
  • When you lie about everything, you lose credibility about anything.
  • Thinking you’re a savior when you are but a mere-mortal, will bring you frustration and disappointment.
  • Having the mindset of a dictator and bully, will not earn you respect.
  • Trying to govern a country, is not the same as running a private enterprise.
  • When you don’t know how to do something, seek the counsel of those who do.
  • When you know you have obtained a position by corrupt and devious means, expect to be found out and removed.
  • Everything you do in the dark will be exposed in the light of day for all the world to see.

Of course, who am I that anyone in the White House would heed what I say? Nevertheless, the truth has been stated and if the truth is not received, the results are on the one who refused to accept truth–they end up being the foolish and unwise.

Pay attention to life’s lessons and make sure you learn from everything that happens and learn it well so you won’t have to repeat the lesson, before you get it right.
