The wonder of our day here in America is that people have forgotten how uncivilized people behave and they are wondering what is wrong with people because of their lapse of memory about our history.
From the time of children, we respected the ability of parents to enforce discipline upon us and we know that it is part of the power of God reaching down to us to teach us to obey. America has gotten confused on who is God.
The people we think are the worst people are still souls that God love and want to redeem. Regardless of how bad we think a person is, God is still the Creator of that soul and loves and finds value in His creation. His goal is always redemption and therefore we are told to pray for the person.
We are no longer under an evil overlord to rule us if we are indeed a Spirit-filled child of God. As children of God, we are to deal with evil that comes against us on various levels (Eph 6:11/Luk 10:19); and we are told by our Lord to “throw Jezebel down off the wall.”
Proper authority has been surrendered, abused, and overthrown as mankind has proven incapable of handling great power because of an insatiable personal greed. The God that gave man authority has observed its abuse and set a plan in motion to redeem earth and mankind.
In its greatest hour of wealth, power and dominance in the earth, who has America honored? Men without God’s approval and glory seek to bring glory to themselves because their failure to recognize, honor and give glory to God leaves them naked.
The dirty little secret that America kept in the closet is that it does not really want freedom for everyone. There was a type of elitism in the nation at its beginning that never left.

Judgment is one of the ways God disciplines, cleanses and reorders His people. It is a serious time where believers should … Continue reading Judgment on Leadership
March 2020 Have you ever been using the hairdryer to dry your hair and the power just stopped? I have and I had to wait for the dryer to cool down before hitting the “reset button” to finish drying my hair. Many of you had that experience within the last week or so. Everything changed. … Continue reading God Hit the “RESET” Button
Many people recognize this time as the season of Lent (Feb. 26-April 9, 2020). It is a time when some people, particularly of the Catholic faith, will spend this time in reflection with fasting as they prepare for the celebration of Easter. Christians, in particular, know that their sins are already forgiven through Christ’s death and they may take this time lightly, feeling as if they are ready for the season. Worldwide we are seeing the devastation of the Coronavirus as it takes the lives of mostly the elderly, whose bodies are too weak to resist the devastating virus. That alone is a reason to begin to pray and seek God for ourselves and others.
