These are not my words but very accurate and disturbing! Unfortunately I have no clue who composed them. Feel free to copy and paste. I did!

I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so filled with hate that they will agree with opinions that if the were in their right minds they would never express as their own. It’s absolutely unbelievable. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone…..then I saw this and I think that it’s pretty close to describing how I feel.

I’m not starting a fight, but it is something to think about. This may open up a ton of outraged comments by some. Many who will argue how “wrong” this post is. My suggestion, save your time and effort! You’re not changing the reality of what we are living by trying to somehow justify this insanity. Nevertheless, I couldn’t resist because we are becoming the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

• If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
• Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.
• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.
• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
• Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right, where darkness is light and light is now darkness.

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast. There’s only one life boat that can save you, and that is Jesus Christ. You can either get in or go down with the ship into the deep dark sea of eternal death. The choice is yours to make. What will it be? Time is short, make your choice wisely!

Don’t waste your time trying to debate me! This is my opinion and you have yours so keep on scrolling!

Here’s an excerpt from my book Hearts are Trump:

Gary nodded. “OK. Tough question here for you, Wade. You’ve been on the Trump bandwagon for about four years. What happens to our country if he loses? Give me a list of at least five.”

“Why don’t you put me on the spot?”

Gary grinned. “I thought I just did.”

Wade laughed. “Wow! That question calls for me to cast aside all the optimism and positivism you just tried to instill in me. Well first of all, I don’t think there is any doubt that if the democrats take control that everything Trump has done that can be undone will be. Number one: the wall that has been constructed so far will be torn down. People will flood into America until they discover that America is not the paradise they had thought it was in the past. Number two: the conservative judges who have been appointed will be replaced with liberal ones wherever possible. Number three: Relations with Iran and China and North Korea will be transformed as the new administration takes us to the brink of becoming one of the rogue nations in the world. Number four: Abortions will be totally tax payer funded and easier to get than an honest lawyer. And five: Homosexuals will not only have equality status in our society but will receive benefits beyond what normal people get. Any organization or church that fails to hire a candidate professing homosexuality will be hit with a lawsuit for discrimination and forced to hire that person. Churches who preach that homosexuality is a sin will be boarded up and pastors imprisoned for hate speech crimes.”

“That didn’t seem so hard to list,” Gary said.

“Really. And I’m not done yet. “Six: The war against drugs will end in and many drugs will become legal. Seven: Voices such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Alex Jones of Infowars, Mike Adams of Natural News and those who rail against liberal policies will be silenced, one way or another. The mantra will be that the only good dissenter is a dead dissenter. Our first amendment rights of free speech will only apply if we condone all policies of the current administration. Where am I?”

“That was number seven.”

“Thank you. Eight: Euthanasia will become commonplace and it may be applied in situations where the government deems someone a threat to them. It might very well be applied to senior citizens who no longer offer society anything tangible and are drains upon the public coffers. Nine: Gun control will be a big push by the government, to the point of setting up people to utter Patrick Henry’s words of ‘Give me liberty or give me death’ as they have shootouts with officers of the government. Ten: the local police staffs such as the Sheriff’s Department will be replaced by national police. Eleven: Many people who have committed real crimes will be released from prison and their beds taken up by political prisoners. The crime rate will skyrocket throughout the country as law and order become about as emphasized as chastity before marriage. Twelve: rape laws will be loosened to the point that the crime is rarely prosecuted. Thirteen: Sexual contact with minors will be allowed and the rape situation will come into play in this arena as well. Fourteen: Openly confessing Christians will be disqualified from certain arenas such as strategic jobs or schools. Fifteen: Homeschooling will be outlawed and parents who resist will have their children taken away from them and raised by the state or given to a good family who will send them to the government brainwashing school. The same will happen to parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated.”

“Holy Cow. I’ve unleashed a monster.”

Shawn shook his head. “I don’t think this is a matter for attempting humor. I think he’s right on most of these and they are downright scary.”

Wade nodded. “And I’m still not done. Sixteen: judges, even Supreme Court justices will mysteriously die, perhaps to be diagnosed as suicides, allowing them to be replaced with those loyal to the liberal cause. Seventeen: Seniors who fail to give lip service to the government’s programs will have their social security payments suspended. Eighteen: People who report suspicious activity by their neighbors will be rewarded by the government if that activity is deemed to be anti-government. Nineteen: Some private properties will be taken over by people who have proven to be loyal to the government through court actions. Our landscape will resemble the south during reconstruction with the carpetbaggers and scalawags. Twenty: Marriage will become a discounted practice and people will be encouraged to have open relationships with partners of both sexes. Twenty-one: the Bible will be banned or revised to take out all offensive passages. And twenty-two: Freedom in America will become basically a word that has come to have no meaning at all. There you go. You happy?”

Gary sighed. “I kind of wish I hadn’t popped the question.”

Wade shrugged. “I know that sounds a bit paranoid and hopefully it is way over the top, but I can certainly see much of it happening, although I would predict it would be a slow moving process with the frog-in-hot-water technique applied so that none of it appears to be so jarring as to scare people into taking action to halt the progress. Probably all of it wouldn’t happen in the next four years, but the foundation will be laid for everything that is not accomplished in that time frame.”

In case you are unaware of it, there is a big argument going on between Christians right now. Well, that’s nothing new, but this particular dispute is certainly unique. A gaggle of prophets issued decrees that God told them that Donald Trump was going to win the election. When the Electoral College votes were confirmed, some prophets apologized for being wrong. They received some condemnation for waffling. When Biden was inaugurated, other people started pointing fingers at the prophets who said that God was still waiting in the wings for His cue and in the meantime was letting all of the evil expose itself. Some of those unwavering prophets indicated that the spokesmen/women of God who had abandoned their previous claims were perhaps without faith to the point that their ministries would be diminished as a result. And then there were people who rushed to cuss out and even issue death threats against the prophets who punted on 3rd down. I suspect that those sending nasty hateful notes to the people of God are not truly children of the King. He who hates his brother does not truly know the Lord, according to scripture. The latest development is that some people think the prophets who still cling to the notion that God is going to swoop in and restore Trump to the presidency need to get some kind of official rebuke from the prophetic community in order to keep the prophetic arena pure. There is a crisis here. I have a personal problem with this because people on both sides have been my heroes. I don’t want to see these people fighting with each other, and I don’t want to see my respect and admiration for people to wane because of their words and actions. I realize that we cannot put our total trust in people, but it is nice to have role models who can strengthen our testimony through their own.

In the struggle between Charismatic Christianity and cessationist Christianity, things are very explainable. Cessationists don’t really believe that God is putting Himself into the equation whereas the Charismatics vehemently insist that God speaks to them. If they’re right, then there is a logical explanation for the division. And when both sides state something that is diametrically opposite, it’s a safe bet to go with the answer that comes directly from God.  That’s been my theory any way. However when two groups of Charismatic prophets have conflicting views, how do you reconcile that situation? Both can’t be hearing from God.

My first inclination is to send them all a pink slip and go back to believing in a God who intervenes very little into our world situations. But something (perhaps hope that springs eternal in the human breast) causes me to pause. Do I or we have to move forward at this point? Is it possible that we just all suppress our personal opinions, put our fingers back in their holster, and follow the admonition of 1 Samuel 12:16? “Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes! If God is simply biding his time for one reason or another to act on our behalf, then those who try to censor the prophetic voices that cling to their claim that God has spoken to them will cause great damage to their own credibility when God’s hand is revealed. I’d certainly want to err on the side of faith if I’m going to be mistaken. I’ve chosen to keep hoping and believing until the end of April. At that point I’ll have to decide what course of action to take. What I do know is that among the cacophony of diverse opinions in our world, we really need to hear the opinion that matters most, that from the Father himself. And who is to deliver that voice if not prophets?

Deprogramming the Trumpster Cult

Politicians and media pundits have called for the deprogramming of Trump supporters, as if they constitute some kind of cult. That word has actually been dropped into the conversation. Are you freaking kidding me? Do those people truly believe that Donald Trump entered stage right and began to blow his magic flute and mesmerized people into following him down the devious path of conservatism? Earth to Liberals. Donald Trump did not create patriotism nor values based on the Bible. Those pillars have been the norm in this nation for over 200 years. People have embraced the liberty of free speech, the right to own weapons and to protect their own lives and property, and the idea of loving our country for a long time before Trump entered the picture. Somewhere along the line the Democratic Party seems to have deserted such ideals, unless they are the recipients given those rights and that their version of love for America is the one accepted. Make no mistake about it, the left will have their freedom of speech to belittle and marginalize those who honor God’s blueprints for human life. They will have armed guards to protect them after they take away the guns of the citizenry. My guess is that such a snatch of arms will not be a shotgun operation (pardon the pun) but instead laser focused to remove just the weapons of those who show an inclination or even a tolerance toward conservative beliefs.

We’ve seen some major cities run by Democrats state they were not going to prosecute people for committing certain crimes. They are going soft on real crime, but I can assure you that any violation of what they consider hate speech will be vigorously punished. So woe unto those who try to fight the homosexual/transgender agenda or abortion. These liberal politicians have championed the cause of legalizing drugs. It appears to me that they’ve been using the products and the infernal chemicals have destroyed their brains. Even the Scarecrow in the wizard of Oz had more brains before the Wizard arrived on the scene. One can only wonder how can such a radical departure from human and American mores have occurred, and so quickly? There is only one explanation, although most will reject it out of hand.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing. Never in my life have I seen such frothing at the mouth by people of supposed intelligence and of influence when they trash Trump. And their rhetoric points accusatory fingers at President 45 for everything he says or does, no matter how virtuous or innocent.  When I see and hear the vitriol that pours out of their mouths, it reminds me very much of how the demons manifested when Jesus approached their victims. My friends, this political warfare we have experienced is actually spiritual in nature. I might go out on a limb and say this is the warm up for the final war between good and evil.

What I’m wondering is what the media will do when Trump is no longer around to kick to the curb. What is CNN going to do to fill up the airwaves? I know much of the bandwidth will be spent in praising the democratic regime, but there will be a void in their lives if they don’t have someone to bash. Here’s my guess on that. If they were to attack quote unquote Christians, then those Christians who support abortion and homosexuality, etc, would be lumped in. To avoid painting them with the same brush, the bad Christians can be labeled as Trumpists or Trumpsters so they can be lampooned without restraint. And so we who embrace fundamentalist Christian values will become the new face of Trump and become the whipping boys of the mainstream media. Fasten your seatbelts, my friends. My advice to you is to not let your love grow cold despite the iniquity that will soon engulf us. The Bible did tell us the world would hate us and that we would walk the path of tribulation, even if we were not born in the era of the Great Tribulation.

To Be or Not To Be … Free?

            Almost two weeks ago a group of people stormed the Capitol building in Washington DC and caused a bit of a ruckus. Condemnation poured in on both sides, liberal and conservative.  FBI agents are proactively seeking to arrest every one that was involved and seem hell bent on prosecuting to the max. There seems to be some proof that this so called riot was a brainchild of the left in order to give them ammunition to point fingers at the right and give them reason to impeach President Trump once again. I don’t know about that, but it does seem to be part of their MO. Obviously, many of the people participating were Patriots, but were they perhaps egged on by members of Antifa or BLM? Mob mentality is not a good thing. And when an emotional situation, such as where people have been frustrated by the lack of governmental response to a potentially rigged election, individuals sometimes do things they normally would not do. And on the other hand, we have plenty of rednecks supporting Trump who don’t have any sensitivity against violence. Frankly it was not a good situation. BUT.

            Let’s examine the situation more closely. If China (and perhaps other nations) was/were involved in stealing this election, that would be an act of war. And if Americans were involved in election fraud, they would be perhaps guilty of treason. For Americans to accept those results in the pacifist and peaceful manner that we have pretty much always done in our history would be exactly what the enemy (internally and externally) wants us to do.  In other words, they would be taking advantage of our reticence to commit mayhem to grab control of our government.

            Let me state that I hate violence. I have never even been in a fist fight in my 71 years on planet Earth. What little fighting I do is with my computer keyboard when I fight for truth using words. However, I have to admit that without violence, America would not have won their independence from England back in 1776-1783. There were Americans who condemned the hooligans who pulled off the Boston Tea Party. Many Americans stood with the British and in some cases aided them by spying etcetera. Those Tories were not treated very kindly by the patriots when the war was over. The decision the Colonists made to demand that King George let his people go did not come lightly. It can be argued that America still would have been granted their independence in the same manner as Canada and Australia and other colonies of England. Perhaps, but it is also possible that our action set the precedent for those other emancipations.   

            I find it ironic that millions of our citizens have donned uniforms to go off to war, including in Vietnam where the threat to our freedom was not exactly clear cut. The true foe in that war was China. Ditto for the Korean war. Now we find ourselves in a position where those who are truly woke and see the incursions of the dragon into our society, to pull it down from within instead of by direct force, are labeled terrorists and those who accept that the election was without fraud and foreign intervention can brag about being patriots.  

Violence is not what we Americans normally do. And neither do we threaten and even punish people because they have supported a certain political candidate. The Dems have said they want unity. But from the comments made by media and some politicians, what they seek is total subservience. It will be their way or the highway. Trump supporters will be deprogrammed or else. What do you suppose the “or else” would entail? Could it possibly be violence?  

Here’s my dilemma. I don’t want to kill anybody. I abhor the thought of blood running in our streets. I truly do. I also do not want to see my government run by communists hell bent on bringing hell on earth to anyone who believes in a deity outside the communist party. We Christians often tout that God enabled America to break away from England so that all might have religious freedom. I totally can see that. The American military might was puny in comparison with that of the redcoats, who augmented their forces with Hessian mercenaries. Yet the colonists were able to defeat the British in the revolutionary war. Would those who froze at Valley Forge or were strafed by German machine gun fire on Omaha Beach, or gave their life at Iwo Jima look down upon us in favor if we allowed the torch of freedom to be extinguished in America because we were afraid? Would even God be pleased if He indeed did orchestrate the battle victories in the 1776 era?  Sounds like He would want us to fight again to keep that freedom.

On the other hand, when Jesus came to earth, he showed no inclination of disturbing the powers that were at the time, the Romans. The early Christians in the Roman Empire suffered from persecution and were belittled by Roman society. Perhaps that pacifist stance is intended for us as well-and not armed resistance. Tyrants are rarely stopped by goodness, unfortunately. I would hazard a guess that life under totalitarian rule such as we see in China is much worse than the life the colonists faced. I sincerely hope Americans never find out if that is true or not.  Every American, especially those in the military or police forces must face the big question, to be or not to be … free.  And no doubt the most difficult choice will be for those in the military who are ordered to fire on people who are fighting for the same cause that has historically been the responsibility of the military – liberty and justice for all. These truly are the times that try men’s souls.
