A WAR ON “TERROR”?

We, as Americans, must understand that we are at a crossroads in our generation as were our fathers of the WWII generation.  The survival of America as a constitutional republic and Americans as a free people is at one of its most challenging and defining moments in its history. Political forces and parties of men and women have irresponsibly forgotten that we are a constitutional republic.  Some are, without a doubt, on a malevolent course to totally transform us from what we are (a republic) to what they would likes us to be (a socialist, Marxist or global state).

Liberal progressives are the worst of all.  Substituting “moral equivalents” for war, they have taken advantage of the culture’s desire to resolve its problems.  They have used these “moral equivalents” such as the “War on Poverty” and the “War Against Drugs” as opportunities to expand government power into the lives of all its citizens.  Americans, believing that it is a good thing to solve these problems, have been duped by an ever-expanding and ever-encroaching government.

The U.S. Constitution allows for the declaration of war precisely because there are times when individual liberties must be curtailed for the good of the whole nation and to better combat our enemies.  But wars are declared and wars come to an end.  The liberal progressives’ “moral substitutes” for war mentioned before have no end.  The “War on Poverty” has gone on for more than 40 years with no signs of success; all at a huge cost to Americans’ individual rights and liberties and the plunder of their wealth by continuous, burdensome and over-bearing coercive government taxation.

We now have a “War on Terror” – or Terrorism.  President Bush’s colossal failure in the beginning of this armed conflict, I believe, was declaring war on “terror” and NOT on Al Qaeda (who attacked us).  Following the foolish and misguided principles of political correctness, He “declared” war on “terror”.  Because He declared war on a tactic (terror), and not on a people with ideological ideas of terror inconsistent with our values, we have left ourselves open and vulnerable to attack from within, and without.  Our government also, under the guise of protecting us from “terror,” infringes daily upon our constitutional rights as a people. 

Fighting a tactic (“terrorism”) has left our borders open to our enemies.  The Obama administration has even used taxpayer funds to bring many of these “immigrants” to America, helped them find jobs and settle here.  But does he really believe that America has need of the abilities that can only be found among Somali, Yemeni, Palestinian or Hamas immigrants?  Something more sinister is at work here and is evidenced no less by the Obama Administrations’ Department of Homeland Security.

Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) task is to protect Americans.  Yet while they say they are protecting us from terrorism, they have identified the most likely potential terrorists for the American people: those who are principled pro-lifers, pro-second amendment, pro-tenth amendment, anti-tax advocates, limited government advocates, tea-partiers, opponents of illegal immigration and – of all people – returning veterans!  Which group was not mentioned in the security report?  You guessed it: Muslim extremists, muslim clerics or anyone who might help Al-Qaeda or their demons.

The DHS and other police agencies have sought to limit, watch, screen and snoop on us in ever-increasing ways.  By every other means available to them, they expect us to willingly give up our constitutional rights under the guise that we are at war.  But war against an idea or a tactic (“terror”) will have no defined end.  Fighting a tactic will only serve the federal government’s purpose because it gives them continuous power to limit our liberties.

It’s time for Americans to wake up and, in the words of the Templar Knight to Indiana Jones, “choose wisely.”  2012 will be our time to say to our political leaders once again, we will not give up our constitutional liberties; we will not go quietly into the dark; we will prevail and America will not be a socialist, Muslim, marxist or global state.  

Over our White House will always fly the “Red, White and Blue”.  As freedom loving Americans, we will never accept a crescent moon, a hammer & anvil or a UN flag to fly over our nation.  America will remain, though a melting pot of people, a constitutional republic.  And we, as a people, will never yield to any party, elite, foreign power or ideology, our God-given rights, American values and constitutionally-guaranteed liberties.  

´til next time,

He Will Save Us

“They set up kings without my consent; they choose princes without my approval … they make idols for …
their own destruction.”  
Hosea 8:4 NIV

Can there be any doubt that we are living in the last days?  These are the days of which the Holy Spirit expressly warns believers would be perilous before the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Tim. 3:1)

When politicians run on the idea that they will fix government; that they are the answer to America’s ills, we must be that much more determined to seek the Lord our God, whom Holy Scripture says is “our Judge … our Lawgiver … our King” because it is He who “will save us.” (Isa. 33:22 NKJV)  And although we have been entrusted with the right and privilege of voting for our civil leaders, we must not enter the voting booth before we’ve spent time in our prayer room.

The Lord warned His people through the prophet, Hosea, that choosing leaders according to their own ideas and preferences, without consulting Him was a sure recipe for disaster.  To make idols (whether of silver, or gold, or of people) for themselves was to move toward destruction.

This is a sober time for America and a wake up call for the True Church of the Living God to humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from any wicked way in us that is making us part of the problem instead of the solution.  We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.  We cannot – and must not – lose our commitment and loyalty to our King: the Lord Jesus Christ, ruler of heaven and earth.

We, who are bible-believing Christians, must never, by our vote, help “set up [rulers] without [His] consent” nor “choose [leaders] without [His] approval.”  Hosea tells us that there are rulers that God’s people can “set up” and “choose” that do not have His “approval.”  We must petition the Lord God to grant us a leader that He approves of to serve this nation.  We dare not vote in this election without serious prayer and with a full sense of faith and conviction that God is guiding our steps.  We dare not vote for any individual that would set aside the law of God and teaches others to do the same for such is the counsel of God’s Word. (Matthew 5:19)

In less than 30 days, we will be electing the next president of this nation.  May we seek grace from heaven, be informed on where those seeking office stand, repent for ourselves and our nation and trust the Holy Spirit within to confirm God’s consent and approval.  May we be willing to set aside all idols that may be consuming our life and commit ourselves to the True and Living God.

While we may belong to a political party and even subscribe to a political ideology, our ultimate allegiance is not to any particular party, candidate, or political platform, but to our only Lord and Sovereign King: the Lord Jesus Christ and His word.  “He will save us.” (Isa. 33:22)
