A Nation on the Brink

When this nation was formed it was founded upon God’s Word and Judeo Christian values. For almost the first two hundred years prayer was allowed in schools and early in our nation’s history the Bible was taught as part of the curriculum. We were “one nation under God”.

In the Twentieth Century things began to change. The Progressive movement, devoid of both God and values, began to try to take over. In many ways it has succeeded. The education system, the media and now even sports is being overrun by the Left’s ideology. What has become clear is Progressivism is filled with hatred for God, those who serve Him and for all that is good and right in the United States of America. Though some have not recognized it for what it is and others have dismissed it we are and have been in a full-scale war to save our nation from Progressivism and its ungodly ideology.

This has now become abundantly clear. In all the years I have been following politics I have never seen anything quite like what the Democrats did to Brett Kavanaugh. They willfully tried to destroy a good man to keep him off of the Supreme Court. Since they were unable get President Trump to withdraw his nomination or to convince Brett Kavanaugh to withdraw his own name they chose to use the playbook of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Without rehashing what everyone already knows I will simply say the depths to which the Democrats sunk could only be demonically driven.

When I watched the Martha McCallum interview on Fox News with Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh I noticed their faith in God was playing a role in their decision to stay the course rather than folding under the pressure. Of course it also helped that President Trump was standing by them but it was their faith I noticed which came shining through the cameras.

It also took great courage for both Brett and Ashley to withstand the onslaught of the sheer evil that was coming against them and their family. Unfortunately, this is what Christians now face if we want to be in public service. Christians are not welcome, especially if they have the ability to change the Left’s ungodly agenda. Having used the courts to accomplish their goals in the past, Progressives had to find a way to stop Brett Kavanaugh from getting onto the highest Court.

As Christians, the Lord desires us to be involved in the public square, and if called by Him to serve to do so. We cannot allow the ungodly to stop us or stifle our voice. We must stand strong in the Lord and “in the power of His might”. There is only one acceptable answer when faced with a battle such as Brett Kavanaugh’s and is written in Psalm 118:5 – 9.

I called on the LORD in distress;
The LORD answered me and set me in a broad place.
The LORD is on my side;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
The LORD is for me among those who help me;
Therefore I shall see my desire on those who 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.

It was also in this interview I knew Brett would be confirmed. How? God will never abandon us if we don’t abandon our faith in Him. This means no matter how sorely Satan comes against us, if we trust the Lord He will bring us through and on to victory. As written in 1 Cor.15:57 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

It is the Lord’s desire we be bold in Him and have the courage to withstand whatever Satan throws at us. We have God’s Word, His Blood and His Name but it is for us to use them to not only stay the enemy but to defeat him in battle. Ashley Kavanaugh did just that when she asked everyone to join her in praying and standing on Psalm 40.

Over recent years I have watched the Democrat Party become more anti-American and anti Christian. From Obama’s condescending remarks about clinging to Bibles, guns and religion to Hillary saying Catholics must change what they believe there has been an assault on Christians and the devaluation of religion. However, it doesn’t and hasn’t stopped there. Now, there are Democrats who want to change our Constitution and increase the number of Supreme Court Justices to eleven. In their minds the Constitution and the rule of law are both expendable if it fits their purpose.

The Democrats are desperate and desperate people resort to desperate tactics. They have become so rabid in their desire to regain power they are willing to destroy this country to do it. Some like Maxine Waters, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton are now calling for violence against Republicans. During the Kavanaugh hearings we saw mobs disrupting the Senate and banging on the Supreme Court doors like lunatics ready to be taken away by men in white coats. It was beyond the pale and so has been the media’s attempt to protect them by refusing to call them what they are; a mob hell-bent on getting their way.

So, what is really going on? Hell’s forces have unleashed their venom through these unwitting individuals. Just as God will use us to further His Kingdom in the earth so will Satan use anyone he can find to further his own purposes. We must remember we are not fighting flesh and blood but forces of darkness. Therefore, we must pray for all those who have been taken captive by Satan at his will. This does not mean we are to ignore what they are doing. We cannot allow anyone to incite violence nor can we allow people to participate in it.

We are a nation on the brink. The battle lines have been drawn and it is for us to decide which path our country will take for the foreseeable future. I am not saying the Republican Party is the answer because it is evident they cannot be trusted to do what they have promised. However, right now, they are the only ones in the earth who stand between us and the ungodly agenda of the Left.

This is why it is of utmost importance for everyone to vote on November 6th. We cannot allow the Democrats to take control of the House or the Senate. They have shown their true colors. Many of their candidates are running as Socialists and their platform is more at home with the hammer and sickle than with Old Glory. We are at a critical time in our nation’s history and the Lord has given us the opportunity to keep our nation how it was founded, as a Constitutional Republic.

I know there are many who were so disgusted by 2016 and politics in general they have decided not to vote. If that is you I ask you to reconsider and to get to the polls. If it is someone you know I ask you to talk to them and impress upon them the importance of this election. The Lord will appreciate it and so will I. Thank you.

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
