From December 7, 2017- I came to my computer this morning to start the day maintaining my pages on facebook, and once again found myself blocked out, and obstructed. Sometimes it's from them doing updates, and I know this. But, sometimes it's because of things I post here on my website, and the facebook page. Over the years there's been quite a bit of interference, obstruction, and harassment. If I tried to explain some of the stuff that is done by those behind the scenes who control Google, and facebook, only those who are making stands like I do would believe it, or understand it. It has not been easy maintaining these sites.
That being said, the events this morning has caused me to open up and say some things about what I see coming at us as a people in this country; with sadness.
In the Constitution this is what the first and second amendments tell us:
First amendment-Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Second amendment-A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Since a small girl, I've been for the underdog, the one getting the raw deal. I've been there, and know what it's like. I've found that with God; I'm not the underdog anymore; I'm walking in victory. But, the battle hasn't ended, it's just changed direction. I'm already on the winning side, but those who are living for the devil and his crowd are the opposition. The weapons of our warfare aren't guns and weapons of the world, it is the Word of God. The right to bear arms for the believer in Christ is only for the purposes of defending our families, and friends, and fellowships from those who live in violence and cruelty; and inflict their hatred on the rest of us. Freedom is not free, and neither is peace. Sometimes those who want to destroy you, and blow you away, need to see your not made of jello, and your willing to do whatever it takes to defend yourself and your family from them.
As for freedom of speech, this is a very serious and tremendous battle now. The only ones it seems that have free reign to say whatever they like and promote their propaganda is those who want every perversion to be right out in your face now. The homosexuals, transgenders, pedophiles, religions promoting terrorism, Islam, every immoral perversion going. Television, the internet and social media is a cesspool of filth; and I only have sympathy and pity for anyone who gets caught up in it, because it's being shoved down your throat everywhere, with no restrictions anymore. But, I'll add that if you cry out to God, the Lord can and will help you get free of it, and help you stay clean. If we want to change, He has the power to help you get free.
Anyone out there that's speaking out the truth in the news media, or as a Christian is being consistently harassed, and obstructed. Yes, there's fake news coming at us; most of it is the mainstream media. But, freedom of speech is meant to ensure that what someone is saying or promoting can be freely seen and evaluated be the individual, you are able to make up your own mind if what your hearing or seeing is the truth or a lie; and can take it or leave it.
There's a lot of people in power who want that freedom shut down. it's up to every one of us to face this, and decide if these freedoms are worth fighting for; again.
If there's not enough people left in this country to stand up to what the elites, and those in the government are doing to try to destroy these freedoms; it will not only be an end to this nation, but to a way of life we've known and taken for granted, and it will never return.
As I watch the college kids today who can't tolerate anything that they disagree with, snowflakes that have to have "safe places", who wear the nations flag and defile it, step on it, burn it. This tells me they certainly won't defend it, and have no convictions to do so.
As this year comes to a close, and the new year begins, I will be paying attention to what happens politically, but most importantly the laws that are upheld, changed, and how it's going to affect you and I. I've also had to make up my mind once again, to keep making a stand, speaking up when I know I should, no matter what the consequences, and exercise my freedoms, while I still have them. Let the chips fall where they may. This is my stand for the coming year. The blogs posted here will reflect that.
Who do I think I am in doing this; nobody, just an average American citizen, who cares about this country, faith in God, and righteousness. Maybe it will get a few people to make some changes in their lives, and stop allowing the mainstream propaganda, and pablum fed to them on TV to keep them brainwashed. For the record; I don't care what people think of me. Over the years, I've had so many lies told, and false accusations made, that one more isn't going to matter to me in the least.
There's coming a day when we may not have even these freedoms still left. Look back at history, and then at what's going on today. Be willing to do some digging, and be willing to accept the truth of what you learn. Yes there is truth, and those who really want to, can find it.
Time magazine posted on one of their covers again this year, "Is God Dead"-No He isn't dead, and He's not asleep. He's patient.
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
But, one day He will say "enough", and when that happens, I just pray people will be ready.
2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
In John ch.14:6 Jesus said about himself that HE is the way, HE is the truth, HE is the life; no one comes to the Father, but by Him.
If you do not know Christ as your Savior, I hope you will open your heart, and allow Him in your life. Then, regardless of what happens, the peace and security only He can give will rule in your heart.
