We are entering the age of despotism and revenge in this nation powered by those who have turned their backs on God and have embrace Satan and his philosophy. Satan tried an insurrection against God a long time ago and failed miserably. His entire existence now consists of trying to strike back at God in any way possible (the subject of the book of Revelation). If one reads the Bible and understands it, then one can see in the broad perspective of things, this ongoing battle played out by the characters now on stage. How tragic that even those that understand along with the ignorant masses are going to suffer horribly in a short while.
God help us all. Pray to God to help us all.
The concepts of living in harmony, forgiveness and righteousness have been thrown out the window. Christians would do well to remember Romans 12:16 - 13:8 ----
Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
Romans 12:17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men.
Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
Romans 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,"says the Lord.
Romans 12:20 "But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head."
Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 13:1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
Romans 13:2 Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.
Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same;
Romans 13:4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil.
Romans 13:5 Wherefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience' sake.
Romans 13:6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
Romans 13:7 Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.
Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
Spengler called it ‘Caesarism’
Obama is bitter because he was born of a race unto it’s own.
His book tells the tale if people read it and read just a bit between the lines.
It aint easy being born a Hybrid, and for Obama handed off to his Grandmother and mentored by a black Communist it turned him into what he is. A bitter ,hateful, spiteful narcissist.IMO his bi-sexuality makes it even harder.
We are being led by a man who hates us, is torn between races, torn between genders, torn between religious beliefs.
But he sure does enjoy the perks.
If you didnt see this one coming, you just werent looking. In our countrys recent history weve celebrated diversity in our population as if it were a good thing. However, one look at world history will show you that no country with a diverse population of different races, languages, and religion has long survived.
Countries dont naturally form with a diverse population, and when in the past theyve occurred its usually been as the result of armed conquest. These unnaturally formed countries have either melded together into a single population made up of one mixed race with one language and one religion or theyve come apart, and theyve usually come apart with extreme violence. The longer these diverse populations are forced to coexist with one another without mixing and becoming one, the more the hatred grows among them and the more violently they break apart, but break apart they will, or genocide will settle the issue once and for all.
Why is this and why cant we all just get along? The truth of the matter is that we (the human race) just aren’t as civilized as we would like to think we are. Genus Homo sapiens isnt that long out of the trees and the veneer of civilization is very thin, to non-existent, upon us all. We are all carrying the genes that got us here and some of those genes carry a very basic survival instinct that has allowed us to survive thus far.
This most basic of all survival instincts is the one that warns us to be very wary of those who are different than us, our family, and our tribe. Those who possessed this survival instinct survived and reproduced, and those who had no fear/distrust of strangers didnt survive. Over the years, this survival instinct has been referred to as tribalism, nationalism, ethnocentrism, racism, and various other isms, but it is an inborn instinct carried in our genes whether we like it or not.
This celebration of diversity in the American population was introduced in the 1960s and 70s as a deliberate divisive revolutionary tool wielded by Marxists like Bill Ayers and other radicals. It became dogma taught by Marxists in our universities, then spread by our leftist controlled news media and leftist controlled Hollywood. The intent was, and is, to split American culture along race and class lines and set off a “proletarian” revolution to destroy capitalism. The Left has now managed to elect a half-Black radical as President and their revolution is proceeding along very predictable lines, with him using every opportunity to stir up more division and discontent. A reading of the Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA at this link should make clear their goals and methods: http://revcom.us/Constitution/constitution.html
At the beginning of the 21st Century, the American people are about to learn the savage lesson of Communist Revolution that the Russian people learned at the beginning of the last century. Millions died in Russias Communist experiment before they learned that Communism doesnt work, as the concept of Communism (You didnt make that) is completely alien to basic human nature. Now its our turn to learn what Russia after a century of misery now knows.
However, the coming American Communist Revolution that Karl Marx and his acolyte Barack Hussein Obama is bringing upon us wont progress in the comparatively orderly fashion as it did with the Bolsheviks in Russia. The cursed diversity within the U.S. population will quickly turn this Communist Revolution into a no-holds-barred, and to-the-death, Race War. How our country, with its Constitution intact, could possibly survive such a blood-bath is a near impossibility. I once believed our country would one day become a mixed race people of olive skinned, brown eyed, black haired, Spanish speaking Muslims, but Barack Hussein Obama has started a Communist Revolution that will undoubtedly destroy any possibility of that ever occurring.
There is no expiration date on any of our survival instincts, and white Liberal Democrats in their Gun Free zones will be the first among us to be reminded of this. As we Americans continue to live out the old Chinese curse, May you live in interesting times.
His main accomplishment was Obama-care with the taxes in it.
The return to the Clinton tax rates for >$400K was not a big liberal accomplishment for the simple reason that the Bush tax rates always had expiration dates on them. In fact O extended them with no expiration dates for <$400K. Libs would have done much better if they all went up and Rs got the blame for it.
For that blame the Republicans of 2005 to 2006 who controlled the WH and congress and never seriously tried to make them permanent, if they couldnt do it how were House Rs alone going to do it 10 years later?.
You know, I have been exposed to the Bible since before I could read, my dad having read to me and my sister various parts and pieces since we were infants. And while I am grateful for the wisdom and the stories from many parts of the Bible, some specific parts you have quoted from Romans make absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
In essence, what those passages seem to be saying is that even if you live under a despotic, tyrannical regime, be a model citizen and do your best to get along by being compliant and subservient to the despots and tyrants.
If taken literally, which is not always a good idea with the Bible, then this country would have never formed, because Washington would have been trying to feed and build campfires for the Redcoats at Valley Forge rather than fighting them.
Maybe I am missing something, and I am willing to let the Lord have vengeance rather than trying to take my own, but those passages still make no sense to me in any context relating to tyrannical, evil leaders and government.
At what point should living under the iron fist of a tyrant become untenable to me and cause me to take matters into my own hands versus waiting for God to sort it out? God didn’t come to the rescue of the hundreds of millions who died in the past century at the hands of their own governments. At least not in this earthly plane. And I am disinclined to sit around being a model citizen while every right, supposedly granted me by God, is subverted and subsumed by power-lusting, valueless, amoral men.
