Where to turn for direction in life?
The Book of Proverbs starts out (in Proverbs 1:7) by telling us that the “Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge,” and it goes on to say that only a fool would despise God’s wisdom and discipline in their life.
Such as it is, that is exactly the state of our nation today!
In this political environment that we have today, that is both hostile and volatile against any view that goes against the grain of “Political Correctness,” which views are mostly morally incorrect according to our Bible, the fact is we as a nation have lost our way; and we have all but lost sight of our founding values and principals that once made our nation great.
In the midst of all the rhetoric and programming of the masses by the media and through a so called “Progressive and Humanist Public Education System” over the years that has removed the Bible, prayer, and the Ten Commandments from our public schools, it would certainly appear that most of our citizenry here in America today have lost their way.
Our nation no longer follows any moral compass, which is our faith in God and in His Word, as we once did, as our founding fathers set up our government, our Constitutional Republic, to operate.
I remember reading a book in college by Marshall McLuhan, entitled “The Media is the Message,” where he points out the immense power that the media has to change the values and morals in our society and culture; and the truth is the powers that be that have been in control of both our politics and our media for these last 70 or so years has used this knowledge and this power to their advantage in order to do just that… to change the morals and values of our society!
In a world that is controlled pretty much by those who hold the purse strings of the world, who control the internal banking and monetary policies of most of the world’s governments; who also are pushing this “New World Order” agenda towards a One World Government and one world monetary system, one in which they will control, for these people a strong, God fearing, and independent populous works against their objective; and counter wise one that has been dumbed down, and has been weakened to the point that many have become dependent upon big government, this serves their purpose. Howbeit that certainly was NOT the attitude of our Founding Fathers; and it’s not the attitude that made our country great!
It was in the early sixties that the decision was made to take prayer and the Bible out of our public schools and look what has come in to replace it today.
As one example, in the view of many of our young people today the name of “Jesus Christ” is only known as a profane expression of discuss, or you often hear the expression “Oh my God,” which I hear a lot even among Christians, but mostly by a people who have no knowledge of what the Third Commandment says about taking the name of the Lord in vain; and nor are they aware of the negative consequences they are unleashing in their personal lives by doing so.
Yet this is our culture today in much of America, in the cities and towns where we all live.
We also find this same profane attitude in most of our entertainment, on television, in the movies that we watch, in the situation comedies that are on TV, and all of it is designed to be irreverent and to cause people to laugh at and to accept things and situations that our forefathers would have been embarrassed to even watch, let alone laugh at; and yet this is what we allow into our homes every night, and it has over time changed our nation for the worse!
Every now and and again we hear these voices in the wilderness, voices of reason and wisdom, in the midst of all the confusion that is so prevalent all around us.
This is so needed today because for so many people today they no longer have a moral compass to follow, and most are just doing what seems right in their own mind, without benefit of, or even any knowledge of what God has to say on these matters.
Like Paul has said in the Bible:
But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
How does this prevailing attitude that is all too common in our society and culture today, line up against the attitude of our Founding Fathers, where the first act of Congress in 1782 was to print Bibles to be distributed in our public schools all across this young nation, so that this would never happen in America, where our young people would forget their God?!
In this vacuum that was left behind, after God and His Word were taken out of our class rooms, the world and the enemy of mankind (who is Satan) has certainly come in to fill that void, and to take over!
When I was in school the chief problems we had were walking in the hall without a pass, or chewing gum in class, and some skipping of classes.
Now look at our schools today, especially in view of these horror stories of recent events that have happened in places like Sandy Hook Elementary School, or the recent shootings in Aurora Colorado in the theater, or the Columbine High School massacre of several years back.
Could there possibly be a connection between taking God out of our education system and our society and what is going on today in our schools, in our politics, and in our families?
I think the answer is most definitely yes!!!
Obviously our nation took a wrong turn somewhere, and I am of the firm opinion that it happened when the church abdicated its position in society, in politics, and in the market place; and allowed the unbelievers and the atheists to come in and take over.
What else did we expect would happen, but exactly what we are seeing today?
A ship at sea that has no compass and cannot see to navigate by the stars is in trouble; and in the since that the powers that be, who control this country, have removed our spiritual and moral compass, which is God’s Word, our nation too has lost its bearings and is in trouble.
Fortunately every now and again we hear a voice in the wilderness, as it were, where God will send someone to attempt to speak some reason and wisdom to a people that have lost their way and have turned away from Him.
One such voice was this little lady, Mother Teresa, who gave a speech at the 1994 National Prayer Breakfast, held in conjunction with the National Religious Broadcasters’ Convention, where then President and Mrs Clinton were in attendance.
Here this little woman, who was a giant in so many other ways, even though she was barely able to see over the podium, she began her address by reading the scriptures, and she gave a message that virtually stunned this assembly of politicians and dignitaries, including the President and Vice President of the United States.
Here is the main thrust of what she said:
“..[for] if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell people not to kill each other?”
…The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion.”
Mother Teresa,” wrote Charles Colson after the event, “was invariably polite and respectful. She did not flinch in speaking the truth. She demonstrated civility wedded to bold conviction, confronting world leaders with a message of biblical righteousness.”
Being that this speech was heard by people all around the world, clearly Mother Teresa viewed this breakfast as a time to speak God’s truth before an unbelieving and even antagonistic audience and world.
This also happened once again this past week, when another noted Christian, Dr. Ben Carson also talked at the Annual Prayer Breakfast, where President and Mrs. Obama were in attendance, along with Senator Jeff Sessions, and other dignitaries.
For those of you who may not know him, Ben Carson, who also has had a movie made about his life (which was quite good btw, called Gifted Hands) is a Christian doctor, a neurosurgeon; and he is currently the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
In the above video, we see seated (in view) to his right are Senator Jeff Sessions, President and Mrs. Obama; and they aren’t looking very happy. You know something of importance is about to be said when Dr. Carson starts off by saying, “It’s not my intention to offend anyone. But it’s hard not to. The PC (Political Correct) police are out in force everywhere.”
Dr. Carson tossed over the PC police years ago. Raised by a single mother in inner-city Detroit, he was as he tells it “a horrible student with a horrible temper.” Today he’s director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins and probably the most renowned specialist in his field.
I thank God we have at least a few voices that are telling it like it is; and we need many more of people like these two who are not afraid to speak up; and that is especially true in our Federal Government, our State governments, and in all the local municipalities around our country. Our government needs to quit lying to us and cheating us!!!
From my youth, I was taught that we should always respect the office that a person holds, whether it be the President of the United States, or a parent.
I was taught that we should do so regardless of the person who holds that position, regardless of whether or not they were worthy of such respect, and truly I have always tried to do that;and in those instances where the person was not worthy, I have prayed for them.
Whereas I still think that this is wise advice, but I have changed somewhat since having been made aware that our nation’s government today is no longer established upon the same foundation that our Founding Fathers laid, and neither are we today following our organic U.S. Constitution either.
There was a fraud that was and still is today being perpetrated upon the American people that started over 140 years ago, in 1871, when our only de jure (lawful) form of government was changed from a Republic for the united states of America, into what is today the de facto UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION.
This was done at the behest and instructions of a group of international bankers, with the cooperation of several prominent and corrupt politicians and some very wealthy families in our young Republic; and over the years, ever since then, these people have used their immense power and wealth to further corrupted our media, our politics, and our public education systems all across the land, in order to bring about, ultimately, a One World Government and monetary system, which they have called “The New World Order.”
It is the love of money that the Bible says is the root of ALL evil, and the motivation behind these people (by their own admission) is to force their will upon the American People, and force us into submission to this “New World Order.”
To me, any person who would knowingly, due to personal ambition and/or greed, change their allegiance and loyalties to their country; violate their oath of office to preserve, protect, and to defend our (organic) Constitution; and then knowingly perpetrate this fraud upon the American people, in order to undermine and destroy our Constitutional Republic is not worthy of my respect!
Nor are these people representing our interests, but rather because our nations has changed from a Republic to a Corporation, ever since 1871 these politicians in Congress and and also the man who sits in the Office of President, by definition of what a corporation is and how it operates, they are all officers of the corporation; and as such their first loyalty is to the Stockholders of the corporation, and they answer to the Board of Directors of that corporation, neither of which are “We the People!”
The people they answer to are these same Globalist Bankers that control the FED and who are attempting today to take over the world.
Also, as a corporations our organic Constitution is no longer in force, but it has been changed into a Corporate Constitution, and as such our president no longer has to be a natural citizen of the the united states, according to our Constitution and the laws of our land, but now he can be a foreign national, as it is believed (from all available evidence) that Obama is.
In addition, neither are our courts today operating under Common Law, as was the intent of our Founding Fathers, according to our Constitution, but rather we now operate under Admiralty Law, as it is practiced on the open seas, where the citizenry are manipulated into forfeiting their Constitutional Rights when they go before a court.
As an example, the Seventh Amendment of the US Constitution is a provision regarding when jury trial may be appropriate in civil suits.
The text of the amendment is as follows:
“In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”
This Right is categorically denied today by the courts of our land and they make no apology for doing so! Your question should then be… why is that and how can they do that?
In fact if you have ever had your home repossessed then you know this to be true, because in most cases it is the judge who rules on the disposition of the case, and not a jury!
The reason is as I have said, this de facto Corporation is operating under a completely different legal system and constitution, from what our organic U.S. Constitution authorizes; and the American people over time have been programmed and conditioned to accept it.
This entire legal system, as it is practiced under this Corporate structure, has been set up to protect and support the interest of these Bankers and not the interest of the American people.
Under this system, unknowingly through adhesion contracts which we have all signed, in things like birth certificates, marriage licenses, drivers licenses and the like, we have signed over our rights and have willingly submitted ourselves, through our signatures, as chattel and indentured servants of this Federal D.C. Corporation, and as such our combined sweat equity has become the collateral for our national debt; with the consequence that our nation and others around the world are that much closer to becoming the slaves of this New World Order!
Let us remember what the Bible says about NOT borrowing, because we then become the slaves to those we borrow from.
Here we have gone from being the chief creditor nation, until today (with over $16.5 Billion in debt) we are today the chief debtor nation in the world.
Despite the way this de facto government is operating with all its spending today, the laws of economics will in the end also apply to us; and that can only mean one thing, eventually this house of cards has to fall!
This is the state of this de facto D.C Corporation as it is today.
The fact is, it should be obvious to anyone with eyes to see, especially since the financial melt down in 2008, what with the $700 Billion Bailout that was just given over to the bankers (40% of which is still unaccounted for today), that this de facto D.C. Corporation and the politicians who run it are as corrupt as the day is long, and that the people at the helm of this country, both Republican and Democrat, are doing their best, not to correct our problems and to build our nation up, but rather they are, on purpose, continually undermining our nation in order to achieve their ultimate goal of a New World Order.
The foundation is corrupt and consequently so is the corporate political structure, this two-party political system, that has been erected to sit upon it!
We need to first change the foundation of our nation back into what it was always meant to be, exactly as it was set up by our Founding Fathers, as a Constitutional Republic; and we must do that before we can change the direction of our nation!!! This would mean a complete housecleaning of the present leadership of our country.
The people, at least those at the top who control this two-part system in our nation, are all bought and paid for by the money interests, the International Bankers, and they are not at all serving the interest of the American people, no more than the Nazis and Hitler were serving the German people prior to them taking over Germany.
It was all a ruse and a plan to undermine the country, as is happening today in America, and to keep the people divided (between Right and Left); and all the while it was their plan to undermine the economy, and it was Hitler’s Brown shirts who were behind much of the terrorist acts that were going on, that eventually led to martial law and the lost of all their rights.
It ALL comes out of the same playbook, folks, and I for one DO NOT want to see that same thing happen again, here in America!
I believe these politicians need to choose sides, if they are Americans, then they need to act like it, first by representing our interest of We the People, and they need to start doing what is right for us, according to our original (organic) Constitution, and not against it.
That would start by our disbanding this de facto Corporation and going back to being a Constitutional Republic; and if they still refuse to do that, then they need to be brought up on charges and answer for all their corruption and things they have done as being the traitors that they are; either that, or get the heck out of Dodge and don’t let the door hit you in the back!
I would give most of these politicians a chance to repent, to be honorable, and to start doing what is right, because I have to admit that it is only by the grace of God in my own life, that I wasn’t on the same path, acting just as dumb; and if it were not for the impact which God and His Word, and Jesus and the Holy Spirit has had on my life over the years, I might just be right along side of them, doing the same dumb and dishonest things they are doing.
In the end we ALL are going to be held accountable by God and so I think we all deserve at least one chance to change our direction in life, once we have been been confronted with the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, and have been convicted of our need for Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
Obviously someone was praying for me; and so that is why I am praying for them, in the same way we read that Paul prayed for and even tried his best to speak some sense to Herod Agrippa, who was a corrupt potentate king (ruler) of his time.
28 But Agrippa did answer: “Keep this up much longer and you’ll make a Christian out of me!”
29 Paul, still in chains, said, “That’s what I’m praying for, whether now or later, and not only you but everyone listening today, to become like me—except, of course, for these prison chains!”
The problem with Herod Agrippa, as is the case today with many of our politicians, he operated under a different set of rules and system of loyalty then a Christian does, to where his personal ambition and greed caused him to only serve himself; and so it is today, in that much of the world today operates under that same value system!
It seems to me that in a Republic where the Constitution is the HIGHEST LAW in the land, it is those who knowingly violate their oath of office, who have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, who are the law breakers; and when these same people change their allegiance and are taking orders from foreign International Bankers and mega corporate interest groups, they are in fact traitors to their country! What would you call them?
I still pray for them, but I cannot support a corrupt system that is undermining today everything that our once great nation stood for!
Obama has called us a post Christian nation, and he might be right?
I hope that’s not true, but if it is, I pray we do some serious praying and repenting, and fast, because our time is running short!
If God could forgive Nineveh overnight, at the preaching of Jonah, then there is still hope for us.
I believe that we have to go back to where we began, as a nation, if we are to survive; and that means that we have to first humble ourselves, repent, and return to faith in God and to His Word.
Well I guess that is my soapbox speech for today and it is also my advise for our nation, as well as my prayer.
So for those who might be reading this, who are still looking for direction in their life… who are asking the question where do I go from here… I offer the following:
For those who are asking where we need to go as a nation, in order to change our government back into our only de jure (lawful) Constitutional Republic, well that has already happened, as of March of 2010.
