We all have God-given rights. 


 The Bill of Rights is protection to preserve


our God-given rights.

God gave us freedom to choose Him as the Lord


and love of our lives. May we reap the goodness 


God made us for... through our devotion to Him.


God's Will was for us to have joyful lives without 


misery, evil, confusion, and suffering, but in 


rebelliousness, opposition, and open resistance to


His authority... we allowed sin to enter the world. 


This waywardness is what brought death, pain, 


struggling, and all things that come simultaneously 


with sin.



God also gave us freedom (a power in and of itself 


to do what we ought to do), which means we have 


the power to choose our actions. We are not bound 


by some predetermined plan for our lives. God 


graced us with the freedom to choose and be 


responsible for our own actions; however, this 


did not mean we could do what we wanted to 


do with this freedom... as long as it didn't hurt 


anyone. 



With great power, such as this, comes great 


responsibility. Many self-absorbed, defiant


individuals have abused their own power. 



The government does not give 


us our freedom. Our freedom 


comes from God,


 and the government was established to 


protect that God-given freedom.



Our nation's unity and freedom


 depends upon being one nation


 under God. 


"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all 


men are created equal; that they are endowed 


by their Creator with certain unalienable rights;


 that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit


 of happiness; that to secure these rights, 


governments are instituted among men, deriving


 their just powers from the consent of the governed; 


that whenever any form of government becomes


destructive of these ends, it is the right of the 


people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 


new government laying its foundation on such


 principles…"


No king or emperor, no president or congress,


 no court or crowd gives us our rights. They


 come from God Himself and are unalienable. 


God is above all nations and all kingdoms. So, 


every nation and every kingdom is under God. 



Every nation and kingdom were formed by God, 


uplifted by God, and will be judged by God.



In the beginning, God created out of one... all 


nations of men from one blood to dwell upon the 


whole earth. God, the Creator of all, determined 


our appointed times and bounds of our habitation.



Man's government and the long arm of the law 


decided to remove God and any discussion of 


God from public forums. 



How can one lead our country 


without seeking God's direction?



Though the government denies Him, and the state 


claims to be increasingly all-knowing and 


all-powerful...


God is still God.

It is a crucial time for our nation


to collectively seek God's divine 


intervention.


When you look at where we are as a country it


 is apparent that we are headed for some dark


 days in America. 


God, the most powerful being in the universe, 


created everything! No one is greater than God. 


God didn’t create the world to maliciously lord 


over us; God created the world to share with us,


 out of an abundance of love... so that we might 


share in the delight of life and creation. 


In April 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote 


a letter from the Birmingham Jail. He argued that 


“There are two types of laws: just and unjust.” 


Dr. King stated: “A just law is a code that 


squares with the moral law or the law of God. 


An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony


 with that moral law.”



Dr. King stated, “Any law that uplifts the 


human being is just. Any law that degrades 


human beings is unjust. All segregation is unjust 


because segregation distorts the soul and 


damages the human being.


Scripture is history. When we speak of Scripture’s


historical events, we refer to the truthfulness of its


factual claims. Scripture is also textual, consisting 


of words that inscribe sacred experience.

Scripture seeks to bear testimony while it 


seeks to preserve events.

Pontius Pilate freed Barabbas


at the Passover Feast in 


Jerusalem while keeping Jesus


a prisoner.

Are we choosing


Jesus or Barabbas?



“What happens when you are faced with


doing something you believe is right; but


may cause many to be upset with you, or 


even turn against you? 



When have you said or done things aimed 


at satisfying the crowd? 



When have you remained silent when you 


should have spoken out?”



The governor's custom each year during 


the Passover celebration was to release


 one prisoner... whomever the people 


requested. Which would they free, Jesus, 


the Messiah  or Barabbas, the murderer?



Barabbas was a well known, hardened


 criminal. He was a blood-thirsty 


revolutionary, who committed murder 


during an uprising. Barabbas was 


condemned because of his own sin. 


Barabbas was facing the penalty of 


death because of his insurrection 


against the Roman government and 


the murders he had committed.



The crowd pushed forward and asked Pilate 


to release someone, as he regularly did.


Pilate answered them, "Do you want me to 


release to you the King of the Jews?"



The chief priests stirred up the crowd to have 


Pilate release Barabbas to them instead. He knew 


that the chief priests had handed him over because


 of jealousy. Pilate replied, “Then what do you want 


me to do with the one you call King of the Jews?”



They shouted back, “Crucify Him!”


Pilate said to them, “Why? What wrong


 has He done?” They shouted even louder, 


“Crucify Him!”


Pilate wanted to satisfy the crowd, so he 


released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus 


whipped, then handed Him over to be


 crucified.


Mark 15:6-15



Mind you, the city was filled with people 


Jesus had healed. The eyes of the blind had


 been opened, the deaf made to hear, and the


 lame to walk. He had awakened within the 


people the hope, the flaming desire, that this 


was indeed the Messiah, come to deliver them 


from the yoke of Rome. All their ideas of 


messiahship centered around the thought that 


He would be the one who would set them free 


from the hated bondage of Rome. Now, when


 they saw Him standing helpless before the 


Roman governor, saw His apparent 


unwillingness or inability to make any defense


 or to do anything against the Romans, all their 


loyalty to Him collapsed. In anger and 


disappointment, they turned and chose Barabbas, 


who lived by force... Barabbas, the known


murderer was set free at the trial of Jesus. 



The crowd voted for the killer to be released, 


not the man who said, 


“Love your enemies.” 



Pilate, was morally weak. He chose to satisfy 

the crowd, by killing Jesus Christ, 

an innocent man.



Jesus suffered unjustly.


Prayer:


Father God, help us not to 


look away from times when 


injustices happen, but to pit 


ourselves against


injustice with all our minds,


 hearts and strength. 


Amen.

The Scriptures are overwhelmingly historical, 


presenting factual accounts of things that happened


in time. The meaning of history is: Creation, Fall,


 and Redemption.



The lessons of Scripture are those of history. 


In Solomon’s time, many advances took place 


in society, but, from the larger perspective of 


life, human nature has remained and always 


will remain the same.


For whatever was written in former days 


was written for our instruction, that through


 endurance and through the encouragement


 of the Scriptures we might have hope. 


Romans 15:4


According to an article, written by 


Beth Schwartzapfel, in the Marshall Project, 


nonprofit journalism about criminal justice,


 she writes, 


"After years of focusing efforts on private prisons,


mandatory sentences and money bail, people trying 


to change the criminal justice system have identified


 another target: prosecutors."


In an influential book last year, Fordham University


professor John Pfaff argued prosecutors were the 


main driver behind the soaring U.S. incarceration 


rate — 


almost always unwatched


and unopposed.

Criminal justice should be the 


delivery of justice to those who


have committed crimes.

Sadly, this kind of warped mentality constructs and 


plays a role in our moral decline. Far too many


people can't tell the difference between good and


 evil. Satan, the gatekeeper and ruler of this world


 has purposely waged an all-out assault on morals,


values, and common sense.


Lynchings, for some, were considered as fun for


the whole family. Murder was celebrated in postcards.


Some wanted others to know they were there... and 


Satan is having a field day being the grand 


puppeteer of the sheeple.

Could this be a new low?

Murderous racism is celebrated?

How pro-life is this? 

Should this devilish sense of 

reality and morals shock or 

surprise us?


Barabbas, the known murderer


 was set free at the trial of Jesus. 



The crowd voted for the killer 



to be released, not the man who



said, 


“Love your enemies.” 

The U.S. criminal justice system plays a big part


 in our society. Keeping communities safe should 


be the number one priority. Their goals should


include the rehabilitation of offenders, preventing


other crimes, and moral support for victims.



A truly great government with antiquated, and 


undesirable outcomes can and should 


acknowledge its failures. 

Lady Justice is depicted as blindfolded 


and holding balanced scales. 



Is justice blind? 



Are the scales balanced?

The criminal justice 


system is morally 


bankrupt. It was built 


broken. 

The Criminal Justice System 


has historically treated Black


defendants more harshly. Blacks 


are more likely to be physically 


harmed and arrested by police... 


and be both convicted of crimes


 and sentenced to longer jail terms


 than whites... 

The Declaration of Independence couldn’t be


 more clear on the source of our rights and the


action to be taken when governments infringe 


upon them:


“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that


 all men are created equal, that they are endowed


 by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, 


that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit 


of happiness. 



 To secure these rights, governments are instituted


 among men, deriving their just powers from the


 consent of the governed. Whenever any form of


government becomes destructive of these ends, it 


is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,


and to institute new government, laying its 


foundation on such principles and organizing its


 powers in such form, as to them shall seem most


 likely to effect their safety and happiness.”



Notice who gives us our rights: God, our Creator. 


They are “unalienable.” Governments cannot and 


should not try to take them away. What is the 


purpose of government? To protect these rights, 


among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of 


happiness. What right do the people have when a 


form of government becomes destructive of its 


God-given duty to protect God-given rights? To 


alter or abolish it and form a new government to 


effect our safety and happiness.


Unfortunately, the American Justice System has


many subtle and very blatant biases and prejudices 


that threaten America's judicial system. There are


many legal professionals and judges who are not 


fit to serve and should not preside over certain 


cases.



It is time for the people to question the two-tiered


  laws and lawmakers. People, regardless of position, 


are human and are prone to not treat some 


individuals in a fair and impartial manner... 


especially when there is bias, racism, and 


discrimination coming from the bench. If we 


are to be honest, we all know there are many 


cognitive failures and intrinsic flaws that 


undermine the search for truth, in our 


Criminal Justice System. Countless Black


 men, in many cases, have become victims


of America's Criminal Enterprise.

We've all heard stories of people who served 


decades in prison for crimes they didn't commit. 


We like to think such miscarriages of justice


 are rare, but many routine procedures in the 


criminal justice system are bound to lead to 


mistakes and unfair outcomes because they 


rest on false assumption and common police 


practices which has encouraged falsely 


identified suspects.

Criminal justice (as a system) is made up 


of law enforcement, courts, and corrections...each 


with their own ideas and agendas of “justice.” 


The criminal justice system is comprised of 


three major institutions which processes a case 


from inception, through trial, to punishment. 



A case begins with law enforcement officials,


who investigate a crime, gather evidence to 


identify and use against the presumed 


perpetrator, and make arrests



The case continues with the court system, which


weighs the evidence to determine if the defendant


is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If so, the 


corrections system will use the means at their


 disposal, namely incarceration and probation, to


punish and correct the behavior of the offender.

On paper, the criminal justice system is designed 


to deliver 


“Justice for all.”


 which should mean protecting the innocent, 


convicting criminals, and providing a fair justice


 process to help keep order across the country.


 In other words, on paper, it is designed to keep


citizens safe.

The Bible calls us to take up the cause of the

 defenseless and to care deeply about the 

brokenness of the world. Social justice is one 

of the ways we join God in the work of 

redeeming creation and restoring it to what 

He intended in Eden. 

"We the people"should make sure that we are 

approaching social justice from a 

Biblical perspective.

God spoke through the prophet Hosea, 


"My people are destroyed for lack of 


knowledge." Whenever God's Word 


is hidden or disregarded, there will be 


certain destruction.



God's Word is our moral Guidance. 


God's Word can bring harmony 


and peace to our sin-sick world. 


Feasting on God's Word, daily, 


is the difference between spiritual


 life and death, faith and fear, 


strength and weakness, 


fulfillment and discontentment.



The Bible has been burned, belittled 


and ignored. It has survived many 


vicious attacks, but it remains 


unchanged and applies explicitly to us 


today. 



Despite its many enemies and 


criticisms, the Bible is living, active


 and it guides us through the vital 


issues of life.



The Bible gives illumination, revelation


 and inspiration. 


God's Word is not an elementary collection of 


interesting writings from antiquity, but it is 


God-breathed. In other words, it is the Word of 


God... God’s very own words to us. 


God's sovereignty is not limited to a single nation or 


certain people. God's love extends far beyond imaginary 


man-made barriers and worldly designations, i.e., race, 


tribe, creed, color, gender, language, age, culture,


disability, political beliefs, educational background, 


or socio-economic differences, experiences, or realities.


God is the Lord of all the world, 


and God is the Creator of all.


It is absolutely absurd and delusional to hold on to the

 idea that there is some supreme race that has the right 

to dominate others. This is a belief or impression that 

is contradicted by reality and/or rational argument. 

The philosophy which holds one race superior and 

another inferior is completely incorrect and unrighteous 

both morally and scientifically. 

Scripture makes it clear that caring for the


 defenseless is central to true faith. 


We, as Believers, are commanded to take up 


the cause of the defenseless by fighting injustice 


and keep ourselves unstained from the world.

If we are to live as Jesus modeled and called us

 to live, we need to be concerned about the needs

 and welfare of the least of these. 
Jesus wants us to serve others for Him, as if 

we are serving Him directly. To do that, we 

need to see the image of God in each and every

 person we serve. 

God dwells within each of us. No matter who

 we are or what we have gone through, despite 

our corruption, God still remains in us. 


Within each of us is a fountain of good. 

Regardless of where we have been, what we


 have done, how many failures and frustrations


we may be surrounded by... how wealthy, 


influential, fruitless or futile we are or 


have been... no matter how profoundly deep


 the hurts and struggles have been, regardless


 of how astute, shattered, worldly-wise and 


polished, or religious one may be... no matter 


what we have done in the past... God loves us


 and is under no illusion about who we are, 


where we have been, what we have done or


 acquired. 

We are all flawed, frail, and sinful. We all have


 sinned and cannot undo what we have done. We 


have all done, thought, or said unrighteous things, 


which the Bible calls sin. The fallen man is a 


sinner by birth and by choice. 



God knows we are not perfect. 


Some may think their works, perfection and 


performance driven, people pleasing lifestyle 


makes them right with God, but...


they need to think again. 


A truly democratic, community-controlled justice


 system would be accountable to marginalized 


and working-class communities, and it would be


life-affirming rather than punitive and criminalizing.


 There can be no economic justice and worker power


 without true democratic community control of the 


public institutions entrusted to uphold justice.


This is not a good look


for American justice.

Rittenhouse was acquitted of fatally shooting


 two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during The


 Black Lives Matter racial justice protests last year. 

There's no fair justice if one belongs to a 


certain"social society". The question becomes, 


if Rittenhouse had been a Black male, would we


 have seen so much effort by the judge to help


the defendant?

Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two of them, 


with an AR-15-style rifle during a chaotic protest


 against police brutality in Kenosha last year. A 


jury deliberated about 3 1/2 days before finding


 Rittenhouse not guilty on Friday of five felony 


charges, including a murder charge that could have 


carried a life in prison sentence.

This is really disturbing. What has our country


 and government become where an armed 


murderer with his private agenda can freely 


perch over the shoulder of the judge. Had he


been of another hue, do you honestly feel


 he could have gotten this close to the trial judge?



Rittenhouse is the Illinois teen who traveled to 


Kenosha, Wisconsin, as protests broke out 


following a police officer’s decision to shoot


 29-year-old Black man Jacob Blake in the 


back seven times. There, having taken it upon


 himself to “protect” a local business, carrying 


an AR-15, Rittenhouse shot and killed two men 


and wounded another. 


Were the local police too incompetent to handle


 the affairs in their jurisdiction without this 


17 year old AR-15 carrying boy? 


 

During the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, that 


ended in an acquittal, Judge Bruce Schroeder 


prevented Kenosha County prosecutor Thomas


Binger from using the pinch-to-zoom feature on


 an iPad while showing drone footage, from the 


night of the fatal shootings in Wisconsin. The 


trial judge also threw out gun charge. That jury 


never got to consider the gun possession charge. 



Rittenhouse was 17 at the time, 


and was armed, the night of the


shootings, with a Smith and 


Wesson AR-style semi-automatic


 rifle strapped to his chest. 


Hours before closing arguments began on 


Monday, Judge Bruce Schroeder granted a defense


 motion to toss out the weapons charge. Rittenhouse


attorneys pointed to an exception in the law that 


they said allows minors to possess shotguns and


 rifles as long as they’re not short-barreled.  They


 acknowledged that Rittenhouse’s rifle’s barrel was


 longer than 16 inches, the minimum barrel length


 allowed under state law, Schroeder dismissed the 


charge.


If Schroeder could be this biased and unfair in court, 


knowing that the case was nationally televised, just


 concerned that many people of a different hue may


 have been sentenced, under his watch, and are


 serving time; although they committed NO crime.

"14 Words"

"14 Words" is a reference to a white supremacist slogan:


"We must secure the existence of our people and a future


for white children." The slogan was coined by David 


Lane, a member of the white supremacist terrorist 


group known as The Order (Lane died in prison in 


2007). They feel the white race is doomed to extinction 


by an alleged "rising tide of color".

Analysis on “okay” hand gesture

[Transcript] The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a


Jewish-based group that tracks and fights against anti-


Semitism and hate groups, added the “okay” hand gesture


 to their “Hate on Display ™ Hate Symbols Database.”


The hand gesture has been used by hateful people to


display a “white power” symbol.


Naturally there was a reaction from some in the Deaf


community who felt like this was something that


threatened our ASL signs that have either the “F” or 


the “9” handshapes.


I will admit I had that initial reaction as well, I thought the ADL was inconsiderate of deaf people and ASL users, that it felt like an infringement on our language.

But after reading the ADL’s explanation on the gesture, it’s clear that they acknowledge that the gesture is an important part of ASL, as well as Hindu and Buddhist worlds, and yoga.

The ADL said the okay symbol in “most contexts is entirely innocuous and harmless.”

The ADL explained that in 2017, members of the website 4chan tried to start a hoax by promoting the “okay” hand gesture as a representation of “wp,” short for “white power.” They were successful because actual white supremacists or far-right individuals would flash the “okay” gesture, possibly to troll people or to actually express their views.

The symbol gained worldwide attention after the New Zealand terrorism suspect flashed the “okay” gesture in a court appearance in March. There were enough instances of people using the “okay” gesture in a hateful way that prompted the ADL to add it to their database.

The ADL said the overwhelming usage of the ‘okay’ hand gesture today is still its traditional purpose as a gesture of approval, so if there’s someone using the symbol, they cannot be assumed as trying to troll or showing support for white supremacy. The ADL encouraged people to not jump to conclusions.

I reached out to Dr. Julie A. Hochgesang, who is an Associate Professor at Gallaudet’s Department of Linguistics, to give some perspectives. She said context is key and explained that forms themselves — the written shape, the sound, or the part of a sign — have no meaning. The symbolic meaning comes from the people and their intentions. She said the Deaf community should feel confident with using the “okay” gesture because we have never viewed it as something hateful. Of course, if a Deaf person purposefully used the “okay” gesture in a hateful way, then the meaning of the gesture changes.

Thank you, Dr. Hochgesang for the analysis. So we see that the usage of the “okay” handshape is fine as long as the intent is within its normal use and not hateful.

Now, in related news, an actor at Universal Orlando who was dressed as a character from “Despicable Me” was fired on Wednesday because he made the “okay” gesture and placed it on the shoulder of a biracial girl during a photo opportunity. A video shows the actor asking the girl to stand near him, then purposefully placing the “okay” gesture on her shoulder.

[Video clip]

A Universal spokesman said what the actor did is unacceptable. The photo was taken in March but the family did not realize it until recently.

The entire trial was a mockery to the criminal


 justice system. Evidence was mishandled. 


The judge seemed biased. The temperament


 and behavior of Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder, 


who presided over the trial, drew scrutiny, mainly 


because some said he appeared to have a soft and 


lenient stance toward Rittenhouse. The judge had


a series of questionable decisions and comments


showing preferential treatment toward Rittenhouse. 


The two shooting victims, who the judge ruled 


could not be referred to as victims, were referred


 to as looters and arsonists - when they were 


protestors.



The judge became puzzled and defensive, at times. 


Outside of the presence of the jury the judge drilled


 down on the law. He told the prosecutors “I have


 been wrestling with this statute, I’d hate to count


 the hours I’ve put into it, I’m still trying to figure


 out what it says, what’s prohibited. I have a legal


 education.” He added that he failed to understand


 how an “ordinary citizen” could understand what 


is illegal. 



When you know someone committed a


 crime, but can cleverly remove the smoking gun… 


really Judge? It should be about the truth, but


 for many imposters, it’s always about finding 


the loopholes.


The judge eliminated the

 "smoking gun". 

Is it possible the judge sensed Rittenhouse's 

guilt from the start? 


This was a surreal moment for most. Even 


though most thought Rittenhouse was guilty...


 the handling of this case was atrocious. The 


judge may have sensed he was doing his 


“job”, but“morally”Justice wasn’t served. 


There was no moral (or real) justice served. 



One has to be a bit off centered to defend a 


psychopath when they know he’s guilty. 


The judge defended a monster. The murderer,


 Rittenhouse, gets away without incurring any


 punishment. A guilty man walks free because


 the bench was occupied by a bumbling, biased


judge that knew the truth from the gate… yet, the


 jury may have been influenced , from the bench, by 


a judge who turned a blind eye to righteousness. 



This case embarrassed the US Court System.  It 


was a total disgrace. This is why lawyers are 


generally viewed with extreme suspicion and


apprehension. 


We are a Nation of Laws.  Laws can, have and will 


always be manipulated. Clever Judge indeed???


No no one should, with a semblance of consciousness,


 separate moral justice and legal justice when we 


look at the crime scene videos. Throw in a Black 


Lives Matter protest and a murderer walks free. 


I’m sorry but the judge has created a legacy that


will always be that he helped a cold blooded killer


 walk free. What a despicable legacy!!!


After this debacle... makes one wonder how many 


injustices and wrongful convictions, i.e., 


constitutional rights violations, victims' rights or 


ethical rule violations, could take place in  


courtrooms where no one is watching. It is painful


 to think that If a high-profile case could play out 


this way, then what are judges and those with the


 most power in the courtrooms doing when no 


one is watching? 



No one can escape God. GOD'S Justice will 


eventually prevail. The judge, gets the murderer 


off knowing full well the defendant is guilty, and


 Rittenhouse, someday you will have to answer 


for all your crimes. Including your lawyers. 


Rittenhouse was and


 is guilty! 


The judge and Rittenhouse will have to live


 their own Hell and reap what they have sown.

Could this justice system be a huge 

departmentalized and hierarchical 

 illusion so vast that it escapes 

one's perception of being white 

supremacy warmed over differently

The criminal justice system, as it stands 


continues to operate by subtly complicating, 


deceiving, oppressing, disadvantaging,


 trying to control and destroy


African Americans. 



The structure of the criminal justice

system often expresses that the 

system is broken. It is obvious that the

 system is working as intended and as


 originally designed. What is written and


 what is actually executed are totally 


opposite.

Just because the processes 

performed as they were built 

does not mean they operate well. 

The system is the only constant, 

and system disasters are

everywhere. 

To make worthwhile change, we must

seek out and speak to system debacles, i.e., 

over-criminalization of African Americans

and sentencing rules.

It is a crucial time for our nation 



to collectively seek God's divine 



intervention.

Psalm 33:12 reminds us,


God always wants the best for us.


The nation who acknowledges God


is a nation God can bountifully bless.


We must eminently determine 


that our nation is...


under God.


So in everything, do to others what you would have them 


do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."


(Matthew 7:12, NIV)



Jesus wasn’t simply giving us a rule to follow. He was 


unveiling the purity of God’s love and the depravity of the 


human heart.



 Jesus said: To“Do unto others,” as the Bible instructs, 


means to receive love from God and give it to others—


also known as The Royal Law 


(James 2:8).

The justice system has failed 


people of all races.

The divide and conquer approach is as old as politics 


and war and has no relations to decency, uprightness


 or scruples.


It would be beneath a true leaders dignity to employ 


"divide and conquer" tactics which pit different races


 and ethnicities against each other. 



What could go 


wrong?



"Divide and conquer tactics can instigate 


dissension and turmoil and further divide 


humanity.


It would be beneath a true leaders 


dignity to employ "divide and 


conquer" tactics which pit different 



races and ethnicities against each 



other... it instigates dissension and 


turmoil and divides humanity.

Is America honoring God for 



Who God really is?


Are we as a nation demonstrating,


through our words and actions, God's 


glorious character or deeds?


As one nation under God, are we 



more concerned about fulfilling 



God's agenda... God's plan... or are 



we trying to fulfill our own agenda?


It doesn’t take rocket science to sense 


that the soul of America is wounded, 


and it is in a very unhealthy place.



We are now witnessing the painful 


wounds of COVID-19, systemic


racism, natural and man-made 


disasters, injustices, inequalities,


divisiveness trickling from the top 


rungs, police brutality, hatred,


senseless incarcerations, propaganda, 


endless malicious, cunning, cruel,


controlling and deceitful lies from


people who should be honestly and 


fairly governing. These wicked and 


deeply hurtful ills have been and are 


very damaging to the soul of our great


country. 

Satan, the antagonist, loves to see 


others in shambles, distracted, 


uncertain, and at the edge of the cliff. 


He has had a field day performing 


just about every ugly deed he could 


in order to traumatize our land and 


perplex our souls... thus, leaving


America in a very fragile state of 


disorder.


In times of trouble... if our eyes are 


fixed toward the world, we will run 


in a worldly direction seeking help. 



Trust, comfort and safety does not 


come through the power of the flesh. 


May we, individually and collectively 


lift our eyes to the hills and remember 


where our help comes from. 

It is a crucial time for our nation 



to collectively seek God's divine 



intervention.


From an acutely conscious and



comparative perspective... our country 



is a blessed and exceptional nation.


To leave God out of all that we do or


attempt to do... leaves us all with an


 impoverished existence.


God, in His great wisdom, has put 


hedge of protection all around 



the United States. America is still 



the land of opportunity, abundant 



natural beauty, freedom, unlimited



resources, and possibilities, but



sadly, it appears we have taken 



God's constant outpouring of blessings



and developed this "all about us" 



attitude and have selfishly refused to... 



bless God in return.


When God’s existence is removed 


from the equation...


there is no absolute basis for morals,

 


and that deficit takes a toll on the 



whole!



A country that takes God out of 



schools, government, and public 



places can easily stray from godly



 ways and plummet from righteous 



living,prosperity, and success to



brokenness,frustration and utter



despair.


 It is beyond a coincidence that every 



social barometer took a nose dive



once God was banished from our 



 government, and public places.

The single most important part of 


any building... is the foundation. 



Can the values and liberties of our 


nation be thought secure when we 



have removed the Highest Authority 



and Lawgiver...our only firm 



Foundation... 

God's standard of truth has always 


helped us recognize right from wrong.



God will always lead and guide us



to our greatest good...yet, God is being 



kept out of our schools, government,



 and many other public places.



The foundation of our society and 


nation is under a relentless attack by 


the usurper, Satan, who hates and 


rejects God. 




Satan, the perverter of truth, is 



attempting to root out God and the

 


moral foundations upon which our



nation was founded.


Satan wants to turn people away from

 


what is good, true, and morally right.

 

Satan wants us to become distant from 


God. He wants to remove and silence 


any mention of God and totally 



disrespect God's moral laws.



Satan has been remorseless in his 



attempts to keep God out of 



every institution of our society.



A nation without God...is a nation in

 


serious trouble! Without God...all we

 


are left with is despair.



There is no greater tragedy than 



abandoning God. When we abandon

 


God...our souls are left empty, twisted,



restless, and wandering.



Without God one begins to realize 



nothing short of sinking sand.



Without God...



our most basic beliefs and values



are lost in a downward spiral.


If God is not in the forefront of all of

 


our thoughts, work, will, words, and 



doings... nothing will last... everything

 


will crumble!


Can we leave the world better than we

 


found it... by leaving God out?


What some people may not realize is...



dozens of revelations are happening



right before our eyes!



These astonishing events and the

 


resulting consequences were foretold,



 by God, long ago.



In this world, with few exceptions... 



there is lack of respect and courtesy.



Some people feel like they should be 



able to do whatever they want, 



whenever they want... however they

 


want because they are unleashed, and 



unconstrained to do as they please.




Rampant narcissism, a sense of 



entitlement, and a lack of 



consideration for others is on the rise, 



and people are not being held 



accountable for their bad, crass, rude

 


and inhumane behavior.




Far too many people are acting as if

 


they can no longer tell the difference 



between good and evil.




Some have purposely waged an 



all-out assault on morals, values,



and common sense.




It is so unfortunate that in this great,

 


free country, where anything is 



possible, we as a society talk about 



crime and corruption, and don't realize

 


these societal ills are the consequences 



of poor behavior.




When the hub is not in place...



 the spokes run wild!



In other words...



When God is not in the forefront 



of all of our affairs...



Heart,



Homes,



Schools,



Government,



and Public places...



will implode.



Expelling God from our schools, 



government, and public places



has been a dismal failure.




Without God... 



there is pure darkness.


Without God...


our society and nation could not be 



properly governed.




In a world without God, 



people would not have any real sense

 


of good and evil.



Without God there can be no objective 



right and wrong. 



When we leave God out of our lives...



we become our own rulers and 



losers... simultaneously.



Without God there is moral chaos. 



Without God...



"People will be lovers of themselves,



lovers of money, boastful, proud, 



abusive, disobedient to their parents,

 


ungrateful, unholy, without



 self-control, brutal, not lovers of the



 good, treacherous, rash, conceited,



 lovers of pleasure rather than lovers

 


of God."


2 Timothy 3:2-4 

When God is left out of our lives...


the more we willingly allow the 


world’s thoughts, will, words, and 


doings to penetrate, pollute, and 


corrupt our hearts and minds.


Could it be that the attempt to remove 


God from the equation... has 


everything to do with our crumbling 


values? 


God is not confined, as we are, in our 


understanding. All that God is and all 


that God doesis beyond our finite 


knowledge.

God has all the answers. God is all 


wise. God's knowledge is limitless and 


can never be exhausted. 


God is the Solution to any problem


or concern we could ever have. The 


evidence is overwhelming and the 


solution is clear; God should be in the 


forefront of all that we think, will, say, 


feel, and do.



When God speaks... 


it shall be done.


.

⭐️ God is the Highest 



Authority of all of creation. 



⭐️God governs us all.



⭐️ God will always lead and 


guide us to our greatest good.



When an individual, a household, a 


neighborhood, a city, a state, and/or a 


country accepts ways of life that are 


forbidden in the Scriptures, its society 


will be seriously affected with 


darkness.


Satan has a field day when people 


become willfully ignorant and drift 


outside of God's will.

Those who refuse or drift from God's 


light... are opening themselves up to 


total darkness.

The Spiritual fiber of our society is on


 the brink of imploding. Extremely 


wicked and blatant Spiritual 


corruption is on the rise... causing


 people to drift further and further


 away from anything resembling a


godly and conscious culture.



This moral breakdown is corroding the 


foundations of our society. As a 


society, we are contaminated, tainted, 


toxic and decomposing from the 


inside out. If we are honest with 


ourselves... we see the evidence of this 


moral decay all around us every day.


Clearly, the startling decline in the 


morals of this world are screaming for 


something to be done.

.

Why aren't those who claim to believe 

that Jesus Christ is the Savior of 

mankind more concerned about 

pleasing God... than the president?


Jesus always begins with the heart. When He pronounced 

blessing on those who hunger and thirst for 

righteousness, He touched on the inner state of our hearts.
Is it righteous to mock the disabled or call veterans losers 

and suckers, denigrate women, engage in juvenile name-

calling?

Is it righteous to hold the highest off and take no 

responsibility, deflect, be dismissive, instigate and incite 

chaos, verbally attack people, give awful advice to 

supporters (which may be a felony) on voting twice, 

attempt to issue executive an order to ban mail-in 

voting, give hate speech, hurl accusations, disparage our 

Hispanic and Muslim neighbors, encourage Russia to 

hack our emails or devote one's life to the greedy

accumulation of as much money as is possible to accrue?


Jesus taught that one cannot serve both God and Mammon,


that is, money and material wealth (Luke 16). 


Jesus blessed the meek (Matthew 5). Meekness is not 


weakness, it is a virtue that draws courage, strength, 


conviction, and good disposition from God, not self-


centered human resources. 



Jesus blessed the poor (Luke 6). Jesus is speaking about 


the condition of the spirit. Let us acknowledge that we are 


spiritually bankrupt. We do not have the ability to redeem 


ourselves. God's free generosity to us was the only thing 


that saved us... not our socio-economic advantages.



Jesus condemned the rich (Matthew 19). Jesus even goes 


further and says “Woe to you who are rich, for you have  


already received your comfort”  Luke 6:24. 


Those who trust in their riches and place their happiness 


in their riches... in their opinion, they stand in need of 


nothing. They place their confidence in their own 


righteousness. Their god is the dollar. According to 


Scripture,"ye have received your consolation."


Comforts can vanish away; wiped out supernaturally by 

God: for there is no true solid comfort but in Christ, and in 

God's righteousness. It is God and God alone, not worldly 

riches, Who lays a foundation for everlasting comfort.


Jesus often had “Nowhere to lay His head” 


(Matthew 8:20), but He and His disciples were not 


destitute and never begged for bread. Paul was beaten, 


imprisoned, shipwrecked, stoned, and often economically 


hard pressed; but neither did he ever beg for bread. It was, 


in fact, a badge of honor for him that he worked in order 


to pay his own expenses in the ministry (Acts 20:34; 1 


Corinthians 9:6–18). Jesus and the apostles were accused 


of being ignorant, troublemakers, irreligious, and even 


mad; but they were never charged with being indigent or 


beggars.

 


Jesus taught that he who lives by the sword shall die by 


the sword (Matthew 26). The way of the world is always 


trumped by the truth of the Word. Jesus tells us in 


Matthew 5:21-22 that murderous anger can lead the angry 


man to judgment from God as quickly qw a physical blow. 


The violence he exhibits toward someone else can be 


brought upon himself by God.



When Jesus’s mother was expecting, she was denied a 


room at the Inn. It is recorded in Scripture for followers of 


Christ to "Welcome the stranger." How can a true follower 


of Christ have as their main campaign cornerstone, a wall 


which has topped $11 billion. This has become the most 


expensive wall of its kind anywhere in the world. All 


for the denial of millions, from war torn nations, room at 


the Inn? 


$11 billion and climbing, and there is 


no sign of construction slowing down, 


even in the middle of the Coronavirus 


pandemic, which needs our attention 


and resources. Many could have been


 housed and fed, here on the streets 


of America.    


How can we, in good conscience deny and shut out


 human beings from poverty-ridden societies?


How can we not welcome our neighbor to the most 


affluent country in the world?


How can one whose theology is not based on obeying 


God's Word, but based on culture, political beliefs and 


loyalty to the president... feel justified in imposing their 


beliefs on others? 


How is serving man... seeking God's Will?

.

Are we attempting to bring ourselves 


glory... rather than giving all the 


praise, honor, and glory to God?



Are we contributing to the decline of 


our society by refusing to take a good 


look at our standards and behaviors?

When we are about to make a choice, let us think of the 


consequences of that decision and ask ourselves, 


“How will this decision affect me and those around me?


Am I doing this for the approval of a secret society that's 


bent on restoring inequality and abuse?


Will the ripple effect of this decision glorify God or man? 


Am I asking for God’s will to be done or only my will, 


regardless of the consequences?”

Are we really putting our trust in God


as it relates to the Spiritual state of our 


nation?



Have we become so arrogant and


haughty that we think we are capable 


of disconnecting from God and fixing 


ourselves?



Have we become the highest authority?



Has our nation wandered from the


course God has set for us?



Is it possible that our nation has


 become rebellious to the point of


 deviating from God's will?



Have we become defiant toward


 Almighty God?



Are we walking with God according to


Scripture?


Are we attempting to bring ourselves 


glory...rather than giving all the praise, 


honor, and glory to God?



Are we contributing to the decline of 


our society by refusing to take a good 


look at our standards and behaviors?

Pharaoh’s resistance was a prediction by God Himself, 


when God spoke with Moses in the wilderness: “I know 


that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty 


hand compels him” (Exodus 3:19). Soon after that 


prediction, the Lord said to Moses, “I will harden his 


heart, so that he will not let the people go” (Exodus 4:21). 


From the burning bush, God spoke of two reasons for 


Pharaoh’s resistance to Moses: the king’s own 


stubbornness and a supernatural hardening of the king’s 


heart after Pharaoh exercised his own defiance toward 


God.


In those ancient days, the Pharaoh was considered a god, 


and his every word was law. There was no one who could 


stand against Pharaoh, so the Lord used him to 


demonstrate His own superior power. 


The Lord’s plan to use plagues and miracles to free the 


nation of Israel was not conceived in reaction to Pharaoh’s 


rebellion. God is never reactive; He is always proactive. 


God had orchestrated the back-and-forth with Pharaoh and 


the exodus from the very beginning (Isaiah 46:10). 


God used Pharaoh’s hard-heartedness to showcase His 


own glory and to show the world His authority over all the 


kings of the earth (Psalm 2:10–11; Ezekiel 20:9; 36:22).

The Scriptures are very clear that a 


stout-hearted country and its 


inhabitants will fall.



We have tried it man's way... 


how's that working out for us?



Our help always comes from God. 


May we allow God's light of 


compassion, empathy and justice to 


abide. Let us thank God that His 


promises still apply today. 



By the grace of God, we can never fall 


so far that we cannot be revived and 


restored. 


If our hearts are blinded by racism, 


God can fix it. When wicked people


plot, terrorize and try to destroy the 


lives of other people, based solely on 


the color of one's skin, God can fix it.


Where there is injustice, immorality, 


bigotry, and hatred, God can fix it. 


Where there is dishonesty and 


divisiveness, God can fix it, and 


nothing can stop or hinder 


God's work.

Regardless of our endeavors... we can 


do nothing of lasting value... unless 


God blesses our work.



To exclude God out of our thoughts,



will, words, and doings is the greatest 



wickedness that can be.


Our nation cannot stay on its present course and


expect to continue experiencing God's blessing.


In these perilous times, with so many storms on the 


horizon, it would befit us to wake up and realize that the 


enemy, Satan, is still busy at work, more than ever


and he wants to divide, confuse, and stir people up.



He does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in 


him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own 


resources.


Satan is the father of lies. He is a deceiver and master in 


sowing discord and hate.


Lies, deception, divisiveness, and evil doings are all 


consistent with Satan's character. Satan is darkness,


and the darkness hates light.

It's time for our nation to 


repent 


of its evil and spiritual rebellion


 against God.

There is nothing God 


cannot do. 

The time is now for our nation to 


recognize that we cannot fix ourselves.


We cannot overcome obstacles


through simple perseverance, and


human ingenuity.   



If we trust in God,


we cannot depend upon our own ability


to understand everything God is doing.


We cannot abandoned God...and think 


it is wise to look to the government


to heal our land.



It is imperative that we humble 


ourselves and acknowledge our need


and dependence on God.


Our nation desperately needs to

  


REPENT!

America, 


let us anchor ourselves in 


God, 


again.


And let us include God in every facet


 of our lives. 


In order for us all to live the abundant life God has for us...


and clear a path for the next generations... we must, 


individually and collectively, make God and God alone...


our first priority, always.


Seeking God first and keeping God first is an 


experience that will revolutionize our hearts, minds, and 


lives!

Regardless of what your politics may be...


God has the capacity of speaking things into existence,


not just galaxies and life forms, but solutions to any 


problem we could ever have...individually and 


collectively. 



When God's hand is in it... when we let God abide...


and rest in God's sovereignty... we can be assured...


God will give us peace which surpasses all understanding.


We must eminently determine that our nation is...


under God.


Truly, the world is in trouble, our country is in trouble,


our neighborhoods, schools, and families are in trouble.


 Let us all, genuinely, pray for the revival of our families,


communities, cities, states, country, and the world.



As we surrender all to God, the Creator of all things,


Who is above all things, Who rules over all things,


and governs all things... then we will truly be blessed


with the security, freedom, and peace our country and this 


world consciously or unconsciously seeks.



May we, as a nation, pray and surrender all that we think, 


will, say, feel, and do to God.



God is able to change hearts and make not only our 


country, but our world a loving, peaceful, and healed land.

It is time for all God fearing


 individuals to be agents of change,


reconciliation, and unity.



Now is the time to lead our country


toward behaviors that will honor 


Almighty God.

Let us pray for God's guidance and blessing on our nation. 


Let us pray not only for our nation, but for our leaders, for 


all who govern us, and for all who are in authority in any 


way. Let us pray that they realize and focus on God's 


infinite goodness within themselves and within all 


humanity. Let us pray that the kingdom of 


righteousness be manifested in their hearts as they receive 


the wisdom of God.

May we lift up the current president to God almighty.


As the movement for racial justice and equity gathers 


momentum around the globe, may we continue to pray 


and know that... 


God and God alone is the ultimate Master of life.



Through the wisdom of God may all those in authority of 


this land be unified in thought and purpose so they 


may properly and uprightly govern and guide our nation, 


and do what is good and acceptable in the sight of God.



With so much conflict and mental, physical and spiritual 


poverty in the world... let us pray for godly people to 


occupy and lead our nation under God, indivisible with 


liberty and justice for all. 


May those in leadership lead with God fearing discerning 


hearts and wise minds. May God touch the hearts and 


minds of our nation's leaders and remove wrong people 


that are corrupt and living in opposition to God from 


every influential position. 


 May we pray for God's guidance and blessing on our 


nation and our world as we face these uncertain times. 


Let us pray that the kingdom of righteousness be


 manifested in their hearts as they receive the wisdom of 


God and lead our nation uprightly.


May all who are in authority realize and focus on God's 


infinite goodness within themselves and within all


humanity.


It is important that we keep not only the United States of 


America in our prayers, but the whole wide world in 


our prayers. 


And may we all be reminded:



 Jesus embraced others with a radical


 disregard for their race, tribe, creed,


 color, class, religion, language, age,


culture, disability, political beliefs, 


educational background, or 


socio-economic differences, 


experiences, or realities. 



"Jesus ransomed people for God 


from every tribe and language and 


people and nation."


Revelations 5:9


Let us pray that all who are in authority, world-wide will 


bear the marks of God's love, presence, and power, and 


not become susceptible to lies, chaos and evil 


undertakings, but advocate for peace, love and justice for


all.


May God bless our nation and our world as we return and 


follow God with God-fearing, humble hearts. May we, as 


a nation and world, act in obedience to Almighty God.


From this day forward...


May Divine right action guard and guide us all as we turn 


our hearts towards God, and may America's greatest

desire be to open our hearts and allow the Spirit and 


power of God to flow in our lives...


forevermore.
