This is a letter to our friends –

God has not given you a Spirit of fear …

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” [2nd Timothy 1:7] In military combat, my experience has been that adrenaline kicks in and training takes over. There is no time for fear. Early in my Christian life I was called upon to deal with what appeared to be a demoniac. A wise mentor advised me, “Rebuke fear. It is the enemy’s weapon.”

Today, we are pressured from every side with temptations to be afraid. Will North Korea attack? Will the economy collapse? Are the swamp critters overwhelming the drainers? With power, love, and a sound mind there is no time for fear! Faith and training kicks in.

Evidently God is saving America for His glory, else we would have long since been disbursed by the sword, famine, and pestilence! I believe that if we could see the world as He sees it (That is – the real world including the unseen battles.) the good guys are winning for a change!

Every day hidden truth is fighting to the surface. Every day corruption, and just pure evil is being exposed. It is not to be negotiated with, it is to be dealt with! We negotiated with a divided Korea in 1953, now we must deal with it! We are negotiating with a divided congress, now we must deal with it in the primaries next spring.

In my opinion, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, should be the poster boy for evil swamp critters. He has spent mountains of money in behalf of crony candidates vs. their betters. In the current race for Alabama’s open Senate seat, McConnell is backing crony candidate Luther Strange against Roy Moore the “Ten Commandments judge”. I believe this is a spiritual battle the Alabama voters must deal with.

What makes this an extra special race – Trump went with McConnell and endorsed Luther Strange. I suspect Judge Moore will win the primary. It will be a valuable learning experience for the President and a valuable humbling experience for Donald Trump!

In the light of all America has done to deserve God’s wrath, it is an illustration of God’s grace that she still exists! I sense an army of mighty men of valor, prayed up and ready for spiritual battle. Sunday. September 3 has been designated a “National Day of Prayer.” It is a good time to enlist!
