• There WILL Be A Test

    October 2, 2015

    “America has retreated from the world,” Cruz says. “Every bad actor on earth has taken the measure of President Obama and determined that he is no credible threat whatsoever. For the next sixteen months, we are in a Hobbesian state of nature, it is like Lord of the Flies, where the only limit on misconduct and aggression of bad actors is the limit of their own strength. (Boston Herald)

    From the time the final vote was counted in the 2012 elections, I could feel the dread of the second half of the current resident’s second term bearing down. I have had the premonition that this period was going to be THE absolute most dangerous period in America’s entire 240 years of existence. No wars, no bombast from warlords or crime bosses, no natural calamities have ever threatened it like this administration has done in just seven and a half short (LONG!!) years. Every gun in the hands of every villainous group, every weapon in the arsenals of militaristic cults or hubristic nations is now pointed at the heads of America’s people, for the very reason that we exist.

    What the current resident has done to our national strength, reputation, and integrity around the world is leave it in unconscionable ruin and destruction for no reason beyond jealousy. As a convinced Marxist, he is jealous of American thrift, wealth, living standards, and happiness, and he is determined to do absolutely anything it takes to drag us down to third-world status as long as he has the power to do so.

    If and when we are ever to undo any of it, it is going to require not just the strength and determination of American citizens, but a sovereign miracle of God’s intervention. Should we be blessed with a real Conservative in the White House as a result of this next election, I pray that Americans will understand our dangerous position and will elect down-ballot officials who also have America’s best interests at heart and will strive with prayer and strength to return our country to something like it was before this second civil war in which we find ourselves.

    Our children and grandchildren will be the ones who pay for this administration’s profligacy and revenge. They are the ones who will be left not only to shoulder the crippling burden of debt forced on them by the criminal enterprise of this administration, but they will be faced with the prospect of beating back the tides of militants who, convinced by our weakened position, our silence so far, and our battered world reputation that we will be easy prey, will stop at nothing to finish us off.

    I pray to Almighty God that Americans will scrape together the shreds of their patriotism and pride and stand fast against the tidal wave of destruction that will descend upon us to test our strength and resolve.

  • Excuse Me…?

    June 13, 2015

    Excuse me, but exactly when did it become necessary to be “loyal” to Obama? Reading about the House Democratic Caucus mentions this condition, which smacks so much of idolatry and tyranny that I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around the concept. I know it occurs,of course, but always thought it was more or less a personal choice (if such there be in the democrat world).

    I can understand loyalty to country and crown. Those are normal attitudes. But a “loyalty” to a particular leader that is monitored and not deviated from is a sick form of hero worship. The only people I can think of who required this loyalty were despots and tyrants.

  • Land of the Lost

    May 2, 2015

    I’ve noticed a “theme” running through the topics I post about on here, namely, a sense of lamentation over what we have driven from American society. Most frequently, the lament is over lost freedoms, lost joys, lost prosperity, and a sense that America was the best that could be had (which she was — and still is, warts and all), and a moral guide that brought out the best in the largest majority of Americans. We have allowed those lost things to be replaced by a millieu of regulations, compliance, embarrassment, toothless inspiration, ugly arts, sanctimony among our media representatives, and a dangerous sublimation of patriotism.

    Along with those lost things, we’ve lost our place as the motor that drives the world’s economies. We have lost our sense of where we belonged in the world, and allowed uninspired and mediocre people in power to push America to the debit side of the ledger of national pride.

    We lost our posterity in a lot of ways. We began to murder them for their inconvenience before they had a chance to breathe the air of American opportunity, and since Roe v. Wade, we have the shameful record of slaughtering over fifty million of our own people before they were born. Those we allowed to live we condemned to a life of guilty sanctimony, brainwashed foolishness, forced them to prefer worship of the earth to the worship of its almighty Creator. We substituted real worship for a spurious, tv commercial dream-world in which we exist in the land of immaculate white kitchens with spotless floors, 2.3 children, a dog that is allowed on the furniture, and a hybrid minivan in the driveway.

    We accepted mediocre educations for ourselves and our children because we were unwilling to demand excellence and brilliance in our teachers and schools, or to make them accountable for the superiority of their graduates. We taught our children to prefer the government as the source of their existence to the loving care of two opposite-sex parents in the home and substituted tv and videogames for supervision. And we did this by forcing parents into roles that were never meant for them.

    We allowed an elitist media class to tell us what and how to think. They chose the newsworthy topics and then they told us what to believe about what they told us. They mocked modesty, faith, and patriotism, and made honesty a crippled outcast from the public debate. Lies were smoothed over, cupidity was winked at, the truth was squelched, and the parade of propaganda marched through our lives from our tenderest years onward, selected and composed by sworn enemies of America’s way of life.

    Our churches, in an effort to merge with the new millennium, began the watering down of God’s message in an ignorant and rather tawdry attempt to be all things to all people. By desperate attempts to be all-inclusive, the churches lost the vision of Heavenly joy and settled for a squishy mush of kumbaya and “can’t we all just get along?” We drove out the Lord who healed the lepers and cleansed the temple, and settled for a nice guy who didn’t mind when we did the things the Real Savior repeatedly warned against in His Word.

    A lot has been lost, but those of us who are still young enough to fight owe it to our posterity to try to restore as much as we can of the lost exceptionalism of America before we hand it on to them.

    This is no longer our fathers’ America. We shouldn’t want to let it be the one the children of the future curse us for bequeathing to them.

  • “We Pray Thee O Almighty God…”

    July 4, 2014

    We pray, Thee O Almighty and Eternal God! Who through Jesus Christ hast revealed Thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of Thy mercy, that Thy Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue with unchanging faith in the confession of Thy Name.

    We pray Thee, who alone art good and holy, to endow with heavenly knowledge, sincere zeal, and sanctity of life, our chief bishop, Pope Francis, the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the government of his Church; our own bishop, N., all other bishops, prelates, and pastors of the Church; and especially those who are appointed to exercise amongst us the functions of the holy ministry, and conduct Thy people into the ways of salvation.

    We pray Thee O God of might, wisdom, and justice! Through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist with Thy Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude the President of these United States, that his administration may be conducted in righteousness, and be eminently useful to Thy people over whom he presides; by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality. Let the light of Thy divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge; and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty.

    We pray for his excellency, the governor of this state, for the members of the assembly, for all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, that they may be enabled, by Thy powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.

    We recommend likewise, to Thy unbounded mercy, all our brethren and fellow citizens throughout the United States, that they may be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of Thy most holy law; that they may be preserved in union, and in that peace which the world cannot give; and after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.

    Finally, we pray to Thee, O Lord of mercy, to remember the souls of Thy servants departed who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of peace; the souls of our parents, relatives, and friends; of those who, when living, were members of this congregation, and particularly of such as are lately deceased; of all benefactors who, by their donations or legacies to this Church, witnessed their zeal for the decency of divine worship and proved their claim to our grateful and charitable remembrance.

    To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and everlasting peace, through the same Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.

  • A Nation On Its Knees

    January 3, 2014

    fograysprayerkneelingFor many years, we have been told to fear becoming a nation on its knees, but I say, it’s time we diligently get on our knees daily. Not metaphorically, but actually and physically.

    The time has come for us all to join together in serious prayer for the restoration of our national righteousness and the freedoms we have yielded to the leftists. Time to beg the Father for what we need to stop the killing of our unborn children, our frail elderly, our sick and different; for forgiveness for wallowing in the trap of false largesse from the government (with OUR money), and for becoming weak and witless in the face of the kind of destruction that is currently sweeping the land. Time to repent most heartily to God for throwing away the sacred calling America has had for over two hundred and thirty years, to be the first with the most in times of disaster around the world. We have lost our righteous calling because we have yielded to the bribery of free “stuff” and monthly checks for years, and submitted to forces that wish to see us on our knees before them.

    But, no more should we fear the kneeling posture. Better to welcome it willingly, and deliberately get there ourselves. Better for us to call out to the Lord in repentance and submission than to cry in weak surrender before the forces that hate us.

    For too long we have pretended we could “do it ourselves,” as we turned our backs upon our Father in heaven, and now, we see the consequences of that hubris as the evildoers close in for the final blows, and we cower sheepishly before them.

    The government wants us on our knees to them, but I believe it’s time for us to kneel to the only One in the universe who is truly Worthy. We should not fear being on our knees, but they should fear to see us there, for when we are weak in our own power, we are strong in God’s, and they will no longer be the ones who push us to and fro like toys. We will be God’s army, in formation to do real battle, and to call down His righteous wrath. The believers should be drawn up in battle array, waiting and attentive, eager for the trumpet’s blast that tells us to press forward against the enemy.

    This is no “regular” battle or warfare. This is the kind of spiritual warfare that the demons fear. Stand against them, one and all, and press in.

    The liberals/leftists/etc. had better fear a nation on its knees, for it might not have quite the effect they were hoping for.

  • Remember This?

    October 1, 2013

    Sarah Palin’s Acceptance Speech at the GOP Convetion.

  • Facing The Lions

    August 10, 2013

    America is burdened with a spiritual sickness that has drug it down for the last two generations, perhaps even more. Churches have stopped teaching traditions and rules and have embraced the dark side. Schools teach sexuality to kindergarten children. Is it any wonder that people have no way to judge morality? We are assaulted on all sides by porn, filthy talk, murder, abortion, and all manner of ugliness and evil. Television and movies are sewers of depravity. It’s not just in the culture, it’s in the government, as well, and it seems to have found a welcome place at the hearth in Washington.

    The sooner our political leaders accept the fact that they are being led astray by spiritual forces bent on the destruction of America as an authoritative force for good in the world, the sooner we will be able to begin the restoration of our national mandate, which is to be the flagship of God-given freedom in the world.  Sadly, I simply don’t see it happening any time soon.

    Every mention of spiritual causes for wicked behaviors and bad law are met with derision today by ignorant people who think they know what they are talking about; derision which, to seasoned spiritual warriors, is a sure sign that we are dealing with something besides clubs, bricks, bullets, and flesh and blood. 

    Spiritual degradation is as old as creation, as witnessed by Cain’s murder of his brother, Abel, in the early chapters of Genesis.  From then on, humans made up their minds that no dusty scriptures were going to make the rules for their behavior. We went out of our way to do everything the Bible admonished against, over and over, all down through history.  Things haven’t changed much since then.  As it is said in Ecclesiastes, “There is nothing new under the sun.”  Which is a way to say, “There are no new sins.  But there are a lot of new sinners.”

    Regardless of whether one believes in the actual events of the Bible, the stories are true portraits of the consequences of going against the rules of care of neighbor and modest, honest behavior, and striking out on our own without the guidance of our Creator or the love letter He left us in the Scriptures.

    Robert Oscar Lopez has a wonderful article on American Thinker this week. Read it to understand that the weapons we need are not what most people might think, and why I have been putting so much emphasis on Spiritual Warfare lately.  We have been at war for a long time against the forces of evil. They believe they are winning, and we are allowing them to do so because we fear being branded as “Believers.”

    If we are going to do anything about the rampant blackness that has taken over people’s hearts in the last 25 years or so, we are going to have to admit to ourselves that we believe, or admit that we cannot bring ourselves to do what must be done, for fear of being fed to the figurative lions in the arenas. There are no atheist martyrs. But the pages of history are filled with the shadows of people who willingly went to their horrible deaths for the sake of the God of the Bible. We aren’t called YET to march into the arena with the lions, tigers, and other beasts waiting to tear us apart. But the possibility exists more realistically now than at any time in the last twenty-five years or so.

    It’s a difficult thing to come to grips with our weakness in the face of apparently unbeatable enemies, but this is one time where even little old ladies can take up their claymores and two-fisted clubs and wade into the fray.

    I pray every day that God will strengthen the will and the power of the spiritual warriors who have committed themselves to this form of warfare.  I have nothing but the profoundest respect for the believers among us who dare to go against the evil forces in person and in public, and ask for the prayers of everyone who has been martyred.  May God protect the prayer warriors and strengthen their message, and may He send His holy angels to assist us all in this mighty battle.
