America’s War with America

Dry Bones America America

American Presidential election 2020, and the whole world is watching.

We are in the final week of the chaos election. I don’t need to list examples. But this cartoon really captures a profound reality. The American republic with 231 years of representative government, is at war with the utopian socialist dreams of actual Marxists. They dominate media, the Democrat Party, and public education. I am not saying all people in those categories are Marxists. I am saying they are dominated by Marxist theory. 

Similarly, the other side, while not largely Christian or Jewish, is highly influenced by the historic American heritage based on the Judeo/Christian standard derived from the Bible. In a certain sense we see ideas that have worked amazingly well for centuries strongly resisted by those who hold ideas that have never worked in practical application.

In the vast middle we have people who do not hold either idea intentionally. They go along with various winds of social change that appeal to random feelings at the time. That is why media is so powerful to influence the masses. The only defense against this onslaught is to think for yourself. Be well read, especially in history and Bible knowledge, which was normal for not only our founding fathers, but their families and indeed the wider population.

And oh, by the way, there is one other antidote. VOTE!

This election is in Yehovah God’s hands. He has the final say. However, in our republic, He will hold us individually accountable for our vote. The America of history is always “we the people.” God is on the throne, but He uses each of us in His Plan. We each have a place, a roll to fulfill, even as simple as one vote. I encourage you to read all of Revelation 5 at the link below.

He stepped forward and took the scroll from the right hand of the one sitting on the throne. And when he took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.”  Revelation 5:7-10 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, rain in Israel, and the U.S. election.

Why Phased Opening After Virus?

24 04 2020

Challis, IdLet’s take a more positive look at the phased re-opening of America. It is now time. President Trump has already released states to begin re-opening the economy. The virus is now manageable because of all the work done in less than two months. Also, it was vastly over hyped. If the original models of 2.2 million deaths had been correct, we should not re-open. But they were wrong by a factor of 30X more than the present prediction of 61,000 deaths. Still, why not open everything all at once? Perhaps it is more appropriate than you think. Perhaps this is exposing the evil intent of the “Haman spirit.” What if there is hidden wisdom in the phased plan?

President Trump released the governors to open on their own individual terms. Allow me to explain why this is critical wisdom and courageous leadership. His critics did not expect him to let the governors decide.

When President Trump gave the okay to begin with phased guidelines, it was wisdom. It  is already clear that blue state governors are stretching the phases out. They may be sincerely cautious, but it is also a political calculation. They believe they will have a better chance to defeat Trump in the election if the economy is hurting. The red states are moving faster. Since the people all over the country want to open, they will have growing frustration with the slow roll-out. Our state of North Carolina is an example of a Democrat prolonging the timeline. This is a swing state and frustration among the people will likely cost him the election.

Why am I spending my blog on this topic? I believe tough times require courage and wisdom. That is my prayer for all of our leaders at every level. Let’s take a deeper look at Joshua. Our country was built on faith and courage. We do cower before any enemy, including this “invisible enemy.” It is time to rise up with faith in God and the courage to face this enemy moving forward, not in retreat. Here are our marching orders!

After the death of Moses the servant of Yehovah, it came to pass that Yehovah spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying:“Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for Yehovah your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:1-9

Pray for America and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Rain is falling in Israel!
