There are many angry men in my nation, and the number is increasing. The anger is almost palpable. Kea is sensitive to the spirit of God and the spirit of this time, and she is troubled. I see a lack of trust in those who lead us. Not many believe them, and when we are shamed on television for our unbelief it is reinforced.
We do not consider the vaccine will save us. We feel, instead, that we have been lied to. And we get angry. But this is not Godly.
A clear manifestation of demonic influence—or even possession—is a vengeful wrath, because it negates the existence of God by making you a god who judges and enacts punishments. If you encounter someone who is quick to punish others for misdeeds, I would expect that person to not even declare a belief in God.Roosh V.
Yes, the times are difficult and telling the truth puts you at risk. Yes, our leaders lie to us. Yes they are mockable. Yes, the human thing to do is to bend their regulations to meet the needs of those around us, and to not dob in those we see breaking the regulations they produce.
But above all, we are to live for God. If this generation is not worthy of God, it is their issue. We have to live by faith.
29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned. 30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days. 31 By faith Rahab the prostitute did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.
32 And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets— 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. 35 Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life. 36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two,[a] they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated— 38 of whom the world was not worthy—wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.Hebrews 11:29-12:2
I was too gentle about the leadership of this generation. They are actively evil: when there is an attempt to reform a national shame, they double down, because they rely on the funding of the sex industry, of which the abortion industry is a part. They do not care about women’s bodies: they are quite happy to make the current mRNA vaccines compulsory, negating “my body my choice”. It’s cruder than that. It is all about the money.
Got that? Texans are “un-American,” according to Bill Kristol. He repeats the Left’s distortions about the law which, as Carrie Severino explains, “allows private citizens to file suit against any person who provides an abortion or aids or abets such an abortion.” How that gets twisted into an “un-American snitch-on-your-neighbors” scheme, I don’t know, but CNN isn’t going to ask Kristol any tough questions about it. The Court went out of its way to emphasize that its denial of an injunction against the Texas law was not “substantive,” but rather they ruled that the challenge to the law was procedurally flawed. This won’t stop the hair-on-fire liberals from running around waving coat hangers at protests. What the Texas legislature has done — and quite cleverly — is to set up a scenario in which abortion providers could go bankrupt trying to defend themselves against lawsuits. Awww, wouldn’t that be a shame, if Planned Parenthood were forced to spend money defending its gruesome business in Texas courts, instead of spending money to help elect Democrats?
You think Democrats are too stupid to see this threat for what it is?
No, Joe Biden and his friends aren’t concerned about the “rights” of Texas women, they’re concerned about the millions of dollars in campaign cash they get from Planned Parenthood. There is a symbiotic relationship between the abortion industry and the Democratic Party, and Texas has put itself in a position to destroy that lucrative nexus.The Other McCain.
But, you have deviated from the passage, and this is a lectionary post!. What we forget is that the sins that so easily beset us are the ones that society approves of: they have great pleasure in debauchery and promiscuity: they hate families that have children, and then raise them well.
The rebels now are those who choose to raise their children. The rebels are those who shun the sins that they are vulnerable to, and choose instead to love God, their spouse and their children. The rebels are not those who are screaming hatred at the approved progressive demonstrations, but are growing gardens.
The rebels are leaving the cities: the rebels are building communities and creating an infrastructure that is not vulnerable to financial panic or twitter storms.
And in this we need to always look to Jesus. He will give us the courage to stand.
