Over the past few decades, I’ve been in all kinds of unpleasant situations. Some them seemed quite dire at the time. Dire, as in broke, discouraged and in the middle of nowhere in a foreign country where I couldn’t even begin to speak the language dire. Worse, I ended up there fully believing God Himself had lead me there. Ouch!
Often I had to remind myself – God is in control. Even now. Guess what?
God IS in control – even NOW. Divine intervention is happening now. Where will it all lead? I have no idea. I have hopes and dreams and aspirations. I have a vision for this nation. Don’t get me wrong – this “vision” is what “I” would like to see happen – not what anyone would call a “Godly vision”. Know the difference! I cannot tell you what will and what will not come to pass. I simply do not know. Here is what I DO know:
Our nation remains a Constitutional Republic. WE HAVE the authority to self-govern. There are those who desire to strip this authority from us. They work towards this end as I write. Since the very start of this nation and even before, men, mostly men, have dedicated themselves to usurping our God-given authority. In many cases they succeeded. In fact, in the entire history of our nation, we citizens have NEVER fully realized the power and authority granted to us by Almighty God. It is safe to say, at best, we only scratched the surface. Why?
Ignorance, for one thing – a lack of knowledge. We’ve lacked knowledge of how our republic was divinely designed to operate. We’ve lacked knowledge of the true source of the gift and our birthright. We’ve lacked knowledge of our true authority. Worse, we’ve lacked knowledge of the true source of our authority – God Himself. If we, or our ancestors, had truly turned to Almighty God, we would only need to ask to uncover the truth. How do I know this? Because I asked. These writings are the result – the answers I received.
Note these writings are not “prophetic” as most understand prophecy. They are not deep spiritual secrets. These words I write, these concepts are neither hard to understand nor do they require massive intelligence. The wisdom I receive from God is nothing special – in other words – they are nothing any of you could not receive if you were to do just one thing…. ASK!
I asked and I received. Maybe you asked and maybe this is one way God is answering you. Just sayin’. The question I’m asking now is…. what do we DO with this knowledge? Now that I KNOW our Constitutional Republic is intact, that WE HAVE the authority along with stewardship – responsibility, what now? Well, this is where consternation sets in.
What if you were on a boat over deep water and someone was drowning? The problem is you can’t swim and there is nothing in the boat to offer help? Would you feel helpless? This is sort of where I am at now. All I can do is “shout” for help. It’s frustrating because while there are plenty of boats (citizens) around me, nobody is listening.
I am only one man with a very unique perspective. Worse, unlike the controllers, my very beliefs in independence abhors the very thought of forcing anyone to my point of view, much less forcing anyone to listen to my cry. The good news is, I am not alone.
Once again, I’ll refer to the 2A sanctuary movement here in Virginia. If there was an organizing force behind this movement, I am not aware of it. How did this come about? It was a reaction to events here in Virginia. From what I can gather citizens simply showed up. We need more of this – a LOT more!
This movement is a model for citizen action. While it may not be a perfect model, the power displayed was awe inspiring. The whole nation took notice! The best part is, it all happened with nary a word from yours truly. Sure I posted some stuff and even sent a letter of support to the local papers, but this all started without my input and would have continued if I had not participated at all.
Again, I am just one man, one voice. MY voice is not important. OUR VOICES are what count! This is what our Republic is designed for. For our Republic to be strong it takes many, rather than a few.
You do not need me to schedule meetings. They are already on the calendar. They are YOUR village, town and county board meetings. This is where YOUR LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES meet on a regular basis. If you go with someone or take someone with you, all the better. If you can encourage others to go – it would be great, but do not let the failure of others prevent you from doing what is right.
Each of us citizens have a say. We have stewardship and thus are charged by God Almighty to do our part in governing ourselves. It is not for you to “control” anyone else. You control yourself. If you are wise, you submit to Almighty God of your own free will. The foolish submit to ungodly individuals who usurp authority they have not been granted. They – the controllers and those who submit to them may enjoy some short-term victories and relief but the price they will pay is a hefty one.
As I am not responsible for your actions – or failure to act – you are only responsible for your own actions. No one answers to you or me. We all answer to God Himself. I urge you to turn to God now. ASK! Ask what is on your heart. Ask Him to show you what is true. He is faithful. He will reveal more than you could ever guess.
