There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what is not true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true!
Because of corruption, we have open borders, open skies, derailment of trains, contaminated waters and poisonous atmospheres! There has been no accountability so far! Sadly, our government has no solution to these problems. When the Word of God was eliminated from our society, our nation began to crumble. Lawlessness, crime and indoctrination erased the foundational teachings that made America strong and GREAT! We are responsible for placing these corrupt individuals in office! If a leader is irresponsible, unjust, or immoral, we must accept accountability for allowing this person to continue in his position!
America is still subject to God’s expectations, authority, and judgment! God holds us — citizens of the United States — accountable for the actions of our leaders! When our nation’s governmental decisions continually and consistently defy God’s priorities, He holds us directly accountable! We empowered them to make immoral decisions, contributing to our moral crisis!
God demonstrates His desires and expectations in His Word. When we know His desire but neglect our responsibility available to us to prevent massive civil immorality, we sin! When we fail to contact our senators and representatives to ask that a bill be blocked, we are neglecting our responsibility! Anyone who knows to do good and fails to do the good he ought to do, sins. When we see government activity or policies that allow or advance moral decay and darkness, we must do all in our power to restrict or eliminate that activity. We are to be salt and light!
We need pastors who know God’s clear expectations in key issues of civil government that are immoral policies to speak out! God never intended for us to withdraw from our civil responsibility, but called us to stand for His moral civil priorities, even if it offends church members! Remember how the people of Judah were ignoring the destruction of innocent lives by the heinous sacrifices of babies to the pagan deity Molech? Those who helped had blood on their hands and the leaders who failed to enforce God’s standards by keeping silent had blood on THEIR hands as well! It may be that we have come to the point like in Zechariah 7:13 where God said, “When I called, they would not listen; so, when they called, I would not listen.”
The Bible and our Christian heritage have been removed, leaving a void of the knowledge of God’s Word. People feel purposeless and have no desire to change or assume accountability — void of a conscience as their guide! We now have citizens voting for criminals and traitors to run our country! Our children are being taught in a very different classroom. Even though they are our nation’s richest treasures, they are rapidly being deceived and propagandized! Atheism, socialism/communism and barbaric slaughter of infants have replaced literacy, patriotism and Godly standards! The UNINFORMED citizen is a dangerous citizen!
How many of the 45 Communist Goals for America have come true? These are a few: “Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put party line in textbooks. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. Eliminate prayer of any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of ‘separation of church and state.’ Discredit the American Constitution,” and more!
The Socialist/Communists are using a technique called, deceiving, distorting, dividing and destroying! We must be bold and speak out against what’s wrong and do our best to change it. When moral character of a people degenerate, their political character must follow! “The ultimate TEST of a MORAL SOCIETY is the kind of world they LEAVE THEIR CHILDREN!” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
It appears that China is eating our lunch while President Biden is eating ice cream! Biden seems very confident that he is in full control! No! Our AWESOME, ALL-POWERFUL GOD is OMNIPOTENT; He rules! There are many miracles where God has intervened in the lives of His people who have called on HIM!
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
