Live Peaceful

February 14, 2017

EVERYTHING in the Bible must be fulfilled. I am convinced; we are living in or perilously close to the last days and perilous times. It is time and past time that we come together as one body in Christ. Daily news reports repeatedly remind us of the present administration are constantly seek to bring evil and division to America. Racism, hate, and evil are just a few of the strategies the enemy continues to use to destroy the unity and peace many have fought so hard to achieve. The Bible teaches us to “live peaceful with all men”. (Romans 12:18)

It is distressing, and more than a little alarming, that we as a united America would allow one man with a hidden agenda to divide a nation. He and his cabinet, a collective group of corrupt of billionaires (who have nothing in common with middle-class America), are systematically dismantling the constitution, its flag, and all “for which it stands”. As American’s it is time that we stand up to governmental greed and self-serving executive and congressional orders. A good place to begin would be to impeach every politician from the White House down to County level of government and replace them with people of integrity. Then, we could truly “drain the swamp”.

We do not have to accept this chaos, confusion, and corruption as a way of life. There is a way that this country can be whole again. There is a way to bring peace in a time of trouble; to bring calm in the midst of the storm. We MUST stand firmly on the word of God. We must return to a basic principle stated in the pledge of allegiance “one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. There must be uniform and consistent laws if there is to be any law. There can never be true justice until the laws of justice are equal for all. We have had more than enough politicians in office with the singular purpose of lining their own pockets.

The CNN News report of “New Orders by Trump Make Law and Order a Key Priority” is nothing more than a law intended to target people of color. This law will ultimately give those officers who are less than honest and corrupt more opportunity to abuse power. Their abuse of power will be backed by the Justice Department and common sense will have taken a vacation. In this day and time, many officers have been issued a ‘get out of jail and free pass’ for gunning down citizens of color. All lives matter in the eyes of God. Trump wants to give officers more power, but he failed to realize there’s a Power higher than his executive orders. God’s word will not return void. Officers and citizens will reap what they have sown and so will every wrong-doer. However, no mention was made by Trump, of the hundreds of people who die at the hands of law enforcement every year, according to the Washington Post.

Regardless of Trump plans, God is still in control. “God knows the plans He has for us. “Plans to prosper us, give us a future and a hope”. (Jeremiah 29:11) God will never leave us nor forsake us, though “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed”. (2 Corinthians 4:8) “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb”. (Psalms 37:1-2) While Trump argued President Obamas’ citizenship and required him to produce a birth certificate as proof, maybe America should require Trump to provide a certificate of mental competency and his tax returns.

Prayer: Father, we need you like never before. While this earth is spinning out of control and being divided, we know that you are able to put the pieces back together again. This Country suffered a great fall by turning away from you, but we ask you to “heal our land and forgive our sins”.
