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
One of the most interesting aspects of being involved with those who fight for justice against those who attempt to oppress or tyrannize people is the fact that we don’t give up and all we do–is transparent, open to public scrutiny, see in the light–not plotted in darkness or secrecy.
Though there are those who would take the side of the oppressor and rail against us–we keep going–never allowing the banner of freedom and truth to fall by the wayside as so many have done in “giving Trump a chance.”
Many of those who “gave him a chance by voting for him” are now experiencing “buyer’s remorse” and the saddest part of all is to see those who have said, they regret allowing their emotions–“their hatred of Hillary” to lead them to vote for a person who is so thin-skinned and vindictive that he can’t see why he lost the popular vote.
With the decision to move forward with the pipelines–many have expressed–directly to him through his Twitter account–have disgusted they are with him–to ignore the Native Americans right to protect their land. But don’t take my word for word it. All of this can be seen on the Twitter Page dedicated for those with Trump Regrets found @Trump_Regrets.
Aside from those who are experiencing regret–there are those of us who did not trust him from the beginning because we saw who he really was–long before now.
And those executive orders he’s signing–are simply his way to get back at President Obama–because his insecurities lead him to believe he has to exceed–go beyond–anything President Obama did in an attempt to make himself superior to Obama. His obsession over surpassing President Obama is obvious to anyone with eyes not covered with blinders. I’ve said before that Trump suffers from a cognitive disability that drives his personality disorders and every day–he proves how right many are in drawing the same conclusions. And nothing he does or says will make him even half the man President Obama is. The difference being–President Obama had a heart for all Americans and it showed–even in those things I didn’t agree with him.
Interviews with those who thought he was going to save them–coal miners in particular who need the healthcare accessible through the ACA, are now worried. And so are others who see “executive orders” issued that will affect their rights.
His moves to blatantly support discrimination are obvious and have ignited a fire under a number of groups who will not allow him to turn the clock back on their rights.
Whether people want to believe him or not is their business, but any time a person in authority has to create “distractions” to keep people off focus to what’s really going on is a sign that we are no longer living in a democracy, but spiraling into the depths of a fascist regime–where one person–Trump–thinks he is the final authority. For those who worship him as their god, so be it.
For those who believe in the God of Heaven, the creator of all things and without whom, nothing was ever created–our trust is in God and we will do all He puts on our hearts to do. We are the true Believers–the ones who live by The Word–loving all unconditionally, no matter what the circumstance. Those who resist Trump do not hate him–we simply recognize him for the despot he is and are rising against him as people have done for centuries.
We The People–all Americans–no matter what our skin color, politics, religion or gender–will fight to make sure the constitution is upheld by every elected official and no rights are violated simply because of petty vengefulness.
For those who don’t want to see truth–but are giddy with excitement over the “alternative facts” presented–do your thing and just remember this: When there is a ship in the middle of the sea and there are no lifeboats available when the storm rages and overturns the ship, all aboard will suffer the same fate.
The colonists left England to get out from under the thumb of a monarchy. We do not have a one-person or even one-family order of rule in this country and we won’t. The ax will fall and when it does, it will do what an ax does.
