When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.2 Proverbs 29:2 AV
There has been a lot of mourning over how our nation is being governed today. Here is another example of the wicked rule in America . This administration has quietly, a terrorist was released from Federal Prison in Colorado for good behavior.
This man was originally arrested as an enemy combatant but the Obama administration downgraded his status to that of a simple criminal. He was then placed in our normal court system, giving him every right as an American citizen.
I have been saying that God has raised up Islam as an instrument of judgment on America. Islam is not being handled as a serious threat by this administration. It seems that our government cant help itself and keeps making silly mistakes. It could well be that this is the hand of God bringing his judgment upon us.
Lets take a look at what happened in Germany in the 1930’s. The clergy started to see that there was something wrong and trouble was on the horizon. Many in the clergy chose the route of appeasement. This was a mistake. Had the pastors of the Germany spoken up and given leadership to the people there would have most likely been a different outcome. Christians have a responsibility to be salt and light in this world.
You will find much useful information on John Guandolo’s website http://www.understandingthethreat.com. John has published a great book which you can get from his website or from Amazon.com. The title of the book is “Raising A Jihadi Generation.” This is one of the best books you can read if you want to understand the threat we are facing today.
The agenda of the left and of the Islamists is to bring us to a fight. If we take the bate it would be a great mistake. I believe that this is exactly what Obama wants. He believes that if we do this he can declare martial law and put the Constitution to the side and remain in control himself.
We not only have the example of 1939 to warn us of the danger, we have the example of 1772 to 1774. Both of these times saw an oppressive government trampling on the rights of the people. The difference between the two is that in 1939 the clergy was silent, and in 1772-74 the clergy stood up and fought. The clergy was called the “Black Robe Regiment.”
We will lose the war if the pastors of America follow the example of the pastors of 1939. We need pastors who are willing to stand for righteousness, even at the cost of their lives.
I believe that the American people are much more intelligent than they are given credit. I think they know that something is wrong, but they don’t know exactly what to do about it. We need both religious and political leaders who will stand up for what is right and against evil and provide leadership.
One of the biggest weapons used by both the left and the Islamists is to silence us. They use name calling and threats of law suits to instill fear in the hearts of those who would dare oppose them. In Islam saying anything negative about Islam, be it true or not, is a capital crime. They are working trough the UN to try to get laws passed in all nations making it at least a criminal offense to criticize Islam.
The left in this nation, which controls the Democratic Party, is using this same strategy by cries of racism and homophobia. No one want to be called these types of names. They are tying to tell us that it is a crime to offend anyone. There is one exception, one group, which it is OK to offend, and that is Christianity.
We need to hold our leaders’, both political and religious, feet to the fire. This nation was founded on the concept that our rights come from God and the purpose of government is to protect those rights. Those of us who still believe in this are not going to go quietly.
We will finish up this subject tomorrow.
