This is a letter to our friends –
The primary war
President Trump just signed the Omnibus spending bill. Every news outlet in the world will be discussing it this weekend. I predict there will be an all-out effort to produce conflict, anger, confusion and chaos. A political “perfect storm” is brewing. Wall street is unstable, trade war is threatening, our military is over-committed, “gun control” is demonstrating. We are hanging by a thread over global economic collapse caused by debt.
We must avoid the temptation to “go with the flow”. Keep your head when all about you are losing theirs. “Be still and know that I am God.” [Psalm 46:10] There will be strong efforts to stir emotion that overrules reason. Panic, anger, fear are tools to start stampedes.
The root of our danger is ignorance! We have been purposely dumbed down for at least the past 4 – 5 generations. Our society no longer has a fixed standard by which to measure right and wrong. Many give lip service to religion, but how many hate the things that God hates and honor the things that God honors.
On the other hand – Those who have made a religion out of rebelling against anything Godly are motivated and dedicated. They lie in wait for individuals who stand against ungodliness. Such a one becomes the target for vicious attack. It is a lot easier to be intimidated and sit down!
We have forgotten that our Creator-God stands with the righteous! We have not lost our faith, we have forgotten it! In the context of studying the hand of God in human history, I believe God intends to use America as a launching pad for a wave of righteousness that sweeps the south-west Pacific, the Indian sub-continent, and the Moslem world.
Further – I doubt He will allow such a thing until America is restored. Goldwater in the 1960’s then Reagan, the Bushes, bought time for an unseen army of intercessors to pray for forgiveness and restoration. Trump, I believe, is the next step in that movement.
The true source of God’s choosing mercy over justice lies in that army of intercessors. The swamp critters believe they have achieved a humbling of Trump. Perhaps so, on the other hand they may have launched an outright war to use the Primary Elections this spring to re-staff the House and Senate with lawmakers who will support righteousness. Trump has already said he intends to travel the nation supporting candidates. It cannot be done with a national movement. These are local races. Each of us has a part. Beyond that we must pray and ask that the hand of God move upon voters in countless districts!
I have been disappointed in the level of understanding that our American liberty hangs in the balance. Please recognize that most of the news sources are in unrighteous hands. Their intent is to misguide and deceive. Pray that our Lord will lead you. “If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways. Then I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and heal teir land!” [2nd Chronicles 7:14]
