Nearly half of those who bother to vote will support Hillary Rodham Clinton. Even if the final tally is “only” forty percent – it should give us pause for thought. As I indicated before, we ARE at war. The “we” being those of us who side with the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The real war is spiritual and vies for the hearts and minds of the people of this nation and the world. From there stems the underlying rot of this election.
As a nation we are turning from God. Some would say we already have turned from God and I am hard-pressed to debate this. For decades, our hearts have turned away from God and toward the pleasures of this world. Do not think I am pointing fingers. I am no better than anyone here. I look upon my own life and find myself wishing for a reset button. But I am who and what I am and I have to live with it. Fortunately, God is gracious. He has His purposes and His ways. And I could not write this today if I had taken a different path. And before I allow myself to become to complacent – only God knows what I COULD be writing had I been more faithful. That said, it is what it is. God accepts me where I am and so must I accept myself.
This election is a vivid demonstration of a nation rejecting God. Look at who represents the ungodly: Bernie Sanders. Jill Stein. Hillary Rodham Clinton. I included Sanders because he would be running for the presidency if the Democratic playing field was leveled. As a dedicated Socialist, he represents the far left. Let's face it: he would embrace communism if he thought he could get away with it. Jill Stein is the “Green Party” candidate. For some reason people fail to correctly associate the Green Party with the Communists.
And then there is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Make no mistake – she is NOT a communist. She is a statist... a globalist. The primary goal of her kind is a world government. Open borders is the key to this concept. No borders equals no nationality and that translates to no sovereignty. This is the reason she wants to strip away our second amendment rights. While I'm convinced she is and always has been a money grubbing weasel, money is not her prime motivator here – power is. Power is what drives all the globalists. They will stop at nothing less than total control. And then they will fight each other for control of the globalists. Do not be fooled, there is not one “master plan” - at least not by any group of globalists. There are several groups vying for this prize. They are all motivated by the god of this world – the devil. He might have some overall “plan” but I doubt it. I think he prefers to play all ends against the middle. If liar is his first name, confusion is his middle name. By the way, I will not name him. All the globalists bow to him whether they realize it or not. HRC is, for now, content to be on the “winning team”. She has no idea what is to come. Few, if any, of them do.
The devil himself is the source of the rot of this nation and mankind. He has dedicated his being to destroying man while at the same time aching for man to worship him. In many cases he has succeeded. Often he at least manages to corrupt those to turn to God instead. II Timothy could well be describing the world today:
2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
“Lovers of pleasures” is the phrase that caused me to think of this verse. Are we not like the Athenians on Mars Hill who did nothing but look for some new thing?
Acts 17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)
Yet another phrase from II Timothy jumps out at me: “despisers of those that are good”.
Clinton called half of who support her opponent as “deplorables”. She later qualified this saying she didn't mean “half”. She never offered her opinion on the rest, but I cannot imagine her thinking highly of that group either.
Today free speech is replaced by approved speech. The president himself proposed a “Ministry of Truth” so to speak – suggesting people should only access information approved by the government.
Chris Cuomo, son of former governor Mario Cuomo and brother of current NY governor Andrew Cuomo and a paid talking head for CNN stated “it's illegal to possess these stolen documents (emails) – it's okay for the media...”. So the bottom line according the elite Cuomo crowd is – let the grownups spoon feed what you need to know.
The elite despise the good, as do their minions, the rank and file. Keep in mind, by definition, the elite are above their own subjects and likewise despise them also, but not as openly.
Back to the point about the good being despised. While “the good” is not limited to Christians, I'll use this group as an example. Christians are no longer allowed to freely practice in this nation. Think about that. Christian bakers (I think there are at least TWO individual instances here.) cannot refuse to decorate a cake with images or words that blasphemy their beliefs. Christian churches are being told they must allow men and women (or men and little girls or women and little boys) to use the same bathrooms at the same time. Christians are singled out has being “intolerant” of other religions or beliefs if one dares to disagree with someone who believes differently. On the other hand, someone may kill or attempt to kill another while screaming “Allah Akbar!” while the press and government officials attach any religious significance to the matter.
While “the good” are despised, the entertainment industry promotes a smorgasbord of pleasures for our enjoyment. From shiny new cars to the latest cell phone to that new game app to the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NASCAR, and oh look at what the Kardashians are up to now! We can hardly wait to get up to turn on the TV, fire up the computer, access our cell phone or, if all else fails, turn on the car radio to get the latest gossip. And let's not forget Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and all the rest of our social media friends.
At some point the truth of all of this will hit you square in the forehead: the rot has infected our minds. This was always the purpose and the project is nearing completion. As a nation, we have nearly totally turned from God and have exported this brain-eating fungus to the rest of the world. Most of us could not discern truth from error if faced with raw and naked examples of both side by side.
This coming election will be decisive but, at best, the result may only be a bump in the road to the ultimate destination. And I'm not so sure about that at this point. Either way the underlying rot will continue no matter who is elected.
