As I wrote my last post, I mentioned about pushing a reset button on my life – something I am sure many of us would like to do. Well, it got me to thinking along those lines and here I am.
While it is easy to see there is no such thing as a “reset” button for our lives, I've seen many people write articles and such as if one existed for our nation. It ain't gonna happen.
One of the most prevalent proffering of this idea is Trumps “Make America Great Again” theme. Granted, this concept can be taken to mean something like: “regain what made this country great”. But what we really seem to want is to return to a time when our nation was, well better. There are two things wrong with this concept besides the fact that turning back the clock is not an option.
First is my notion that we've all be deceived about how “great” this nation ever was – or at least until the civil war. Don't get me wrong – even despite the lies and double-dealing from our government, no other nation can equal what we have here. However, true justice (and by this I mean the courts not that “social justice” crap) has always gone to those who can afford it. Meanwhile, the ruling class has continuously consolidated and expanded their power base to achieve what they have today. And that is nearly unlimited power.
Government has grown into an insatiable monster intent on devouring nearly every scrap of fruit we are able to produce. Meanwhile, it has fenced us in and continues to move us into smaller and smaller pens like the cattle we have become. And there is no going back to some “better time”.
The second reason America cannot be made “great again” is we've screwed the pooch. Our nation has drifted from the constitutional republic our forefathers constructed. We are so far from a representative government, the path back to that place in now overgrown and no longer accessible. In other metaphors – we cannot put the genie back in the bottle.
Like I said – there is no reset button.
So where can we go from here? At the risk of sounding like a well-worn record – we are headed towards a place few of us really want. However we no longer have a choice. It is only a matter of time before this nation offers up our sovereignty to a global entity. The question is... what will that nation look like?
While I cannot say for sure, I suspect the globalists will take title to a severely broken nation. It will not be “our America”. Whether this is by their design or our resistance, I do not know. Will we adopt a “scorched earth” approach? Will they? While I can ascertain the ultimate goal of the globalists, I dare not look too deeply into the blackness of what they would call hearts. What I can say is from their own admissions, they desire to reduce the world population by some eighty percent. While I have seen no indication of their intent for the remainder, it's not hard to guess anyone left will either be ruler or slave. I have no desire to be either.
Pretty bleak, huh? For the world... yes. Yes it does look bleak. However, I am not of this world and I will not bow to the globalists. No matter what they think they are going to accomplish – they are mistaken.
As my previous post suggests, there is an underlying rot to this election as well as all that is happening in the world today. The adversary, the devil, is corrupting every mind he can and prevent as many people as possible from turning to our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus the Messiah. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, I urge you to reconsider. He gave His life to save us from the wrath that is to come. While there is no “reset” button to bring any of us or this nation to a previous time – there is a way to “reset” your life – cleanse yourself from sin and turn to the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
This “reset button” ushers in a new man as God creates His spirit within you and allows you to receive the gift of eternal life.
Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest [token] of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If you have not already confessed Jesus as Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead – consider doing so now. If you have already, I urge you to speak the truth to all who will listen. This is the only resistance that matters.
