I can be silent no longer
For years I have been silent, posting only encouragement and hope to provide comfort for God’s people. God spoke to me in 2016 and showed me the future that is today. When I would bring it up among family, I met resistance. One man couldn’t do that much harm. He couldn’t change everything that much. It’s only for four years. But I can be silent no longer
Two years later, the world has changed, not just our nation. The strong leader of the western world turned its back on our allies and welcomed our enemies. America stepped down. Because of the rhetoric of the campaign in 2016, the forces of evil were released in the world. The spirit of the AntiChrist has moved forward and taken over many countries, not just our own. It spread white supremacy throughout the western world. Money speaks louder than anything. Greed and selfishness are rampant everywhere.
The whole world has changed allowing evil to spread
How did we elect such a leader in a Christian nation? How do we have so many leaders willing to turn their backs on the poor, immigrants, people of color, and the safety of women and children? Do you wonder why the atrocities and the many lies of our current government are not being stopped? Our leaders are afraid. They are being bullied and scared to stand up to our president. That fear is tearing our country apart.
But it comes down to us, the individuals. We are unwilling to let go of our greed and selfishness. It is money we want so we vote for more money. We say we want to vote for righteousness but what we are voting for isn’t saving babies; it is killing women, children, poor, and people in danger. I can be silent no longer.
Meanwhile, we give more money to the rich. Even though his cabinet and people he has nominated are corrupt and not qualified for their jobs, some continue to say the president is not at fault. He is at fault.
I know there will be many who unfollow me or say my facts are wrong. But these are the words that burn in my heart from God. I can be silent no longer and let you think I agree with this.
These words burn in my heart
Our country moves closer to a dictatorship every day. This president has undermined the integrity of our justice system, our news media, our intelligence community, and has subdued the congress members who are to keep him in check. He has ridiculed and made belittling comments of people of color and of anyone who contradicts him even when he contradicts himself. He lies constantly. And our people, the moral majority, the evangelicals, believe every lie that comes from his mouth. He is not a Christian. The president says only what he needs to say to hook you in.
He wants to be the only one with power. And when that happens, he will hand us off to another, much worse, person. And then the end times will come.
When the prophet, Amos, spoke against the injustice of his day, he wasn’t welcomed, and few believed him. But he had to speak the words God gave him. His words ring true for our time today. Not just in America but in every nation worldwide. Justice matters. Helping the poor and needy matter. I can be silent no longer.
My heart hurts and I feel God’s dismay
According to Amos 5, God hates those who distort justice making it seem bitter. He abhors those who trample righteousness. The people in power hate the one who speaks the truth. They deceive God’s people and lead them astray. They succeed at the expense of the poor, and their wealth comes from taxes taking away the poor’s wages.
God sees the depth of evil the leaders have done. He sees the gravity of their sins. They persecute those who do the right thing. The leaders take bribes from lobbyists, companies, and in the form of donations. They push the poor to the side in the courts instead of helping them.
It is truly an evil time in which we live. Too many abhor the poor and displaced. The rich gather more to themselves at the expense of the poor and live in luxury. We fear instead of welcome outsiders and strangers. If someone is different, we ignore or prosecute them. I can be silent no longer.
Hate what is evil but love what is good. Apply God’s laws justly in the courts. Maybe God will have mercy on you.
Do you look forward to when the Lord comes again? Why? For you, it will mean darkness, not light. He rejects your religious ceremonies and has nothing to do with your gatherings. He does not accept your offerings. Your music is noise to the Lord.
Here’s what God wants!
Here’s what God wants! Let justice thunder down like a waterfall and righteousness flow like a river that never runs dry.
Are living righteously? Do you support beliefs in line with God’s will and purpose?
Are you pro-life? Or pro-choice? Are you for stronger immigration laws? Or for easier ways to citizenship? Do you give money to the poor? Or do you support jailing the homeless? Are you against murder? Do you lie? Are you serving angels unaware? Or do you complain about everything? Do you live in fear of what is coming? Or do you pray for safety and trust in God?
Micah 6:8 No. He has told you, mortals, what is good in His sight. What else does the Eternal ask of you But to live justly and to love kindness and to walk with your True God in all humility?
Matthew 22:37-40 “Love the Eternal One your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is nearly as important, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” The rest of the law and all the teachings of the prophets are but variations on these themes.
Proverbs 6:16-19 Take note, there are six things the Eternal hates; no, make it seven He abhors: Eyes that look down on others, a tongue that can’t be trusted, hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that conceives evil plans, feet that sprint toward evil, A false witness who breathes out lies, and anyone who stirs up trouble among the faithful.
Lying is the same as murder.
Lying is the same as murder. Arrogance and looking down on others because of who they seem compared to yourself is like a heart that conceives evil plans. Sharing social media posts without verifying the claims is bearing false witness and stirring up trouble among the faithful. Supporting a government or leader who taxes the poor while giving the rich a free ride is evil. Abortion and lying or gossiping about your brethren are the same in God’s eyes.
Join with me in praying for our nation, our leaders, our world, but mostly, for ourselves. Ask for forgiveness in allowing hate and untruth to divide this world. Pray for each other to bring the compassion of God to each individual in this world. Our world is hurting. The people are faltering. We need justice for the poor. And we need justice for people of color. We need people in authority to be judged and removed for harming those in their care.
I can be silent no longer, can you?
Lord, send Your avenging angels into our world. We fight against the powers of evil in this world. Take every person in authority everywhere who are only seeking their own selfish, greedy gain and remove them. Allow the journalists and news media to speak only the truth and use supporting facts that are actually facts. Show everyone who is lying to us and why. Protect us from evil and save us from the Evil One.
And forgive us for allowing this to come to pass. Help us to pray Your words and Your promises for this world. Send Your blessings to us and show us our path. Give us the words to speak Your truth for the hurting of this world. Heal our nation and heal our own hearts and minds. Cast out the fear the enemy brings to our minds constantly. Help us to reach out to others today.
