For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
Today is a time to grieve.
For those in America that cherished our biblical foundations and the liberties granted us by Almighty God, it is now a time to grieve.
America has chosen as it’s chief executive: a Marxist, with deep ties to Socialist and ethnocentric radicalism, upon whose stated agenda during the campaign is the greatest threat to your liberty that has ever come against it.
America has selected as President, a man who has said that America “Must break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution”.
This man has said that he will “fundamentally change the United States of America”.
This man’s entire campaign has been one of “change”. To “change America” into something it was never intended to be; a Socialist tyranny.
Obama has already taken two oaths of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States – two oaths he has never honored, indeed his own words prove that he will not honor this oath that he must swear, because he hates what America is and was. This is why he seeks to change it.
Along with the choice of Marxist for President – the Democrats now have a super majority in the legislature, which means that the Obama, Reid, Pelosi triumvirate can proceed unopposed.
Contrary to gentlemen who have no problem compromising principles to appear congenial, who advocate the nation to ‘unify’ behind Obama, let us note that Obama himself made no such similar gracious overture in his victory speech. Instead he said: “I may not have won your vote tonight, but I will be your president too”. So even if you did not vote for the Marxist, too bad – because he is now your boss in his mind.
This is a remarkable statement when the very people who lent themselves to his campaign spent the last 8 years trashing the current occupant of the White House, referring to Bush as Hitler and vehemently exclaiming that he was not their president, even while on foreign soil.
So, Marxists pushing Socialism won, and liberty lost.
America has chosen it’s fate.
In truth, our experiment with liberty is now over as it reverts to totalitarian Socialism and an oligarchy that will now proceed to entrench itself into permanent political power.
I have read a lot of loathing, fear and anger today over the results of yesterday. But let us face this truth: America wants Socialism. America no longer reveres liberty and responsibility, America wants a free hand out because they have been led to envy and hate those that have succeeded. America has succumbed to the delusion to worship a mere man as a messiah, and grant him the power to control their lives and take from those they envy, and have it redistributed to themselves by the power of government.
This truth requires us to reflect on how we arrived here and what was initially intended for us as a people and nation. This truth requires that we grieve. America has been transformed into a pure democracy, a mob that has elevated a narcissistic demagogue to president.
We have seen this before in history.
We should know where it leads.
Some say today that we should not give into any defeatism. Some say today that this is just a temporary bump and we will be able to restore whatever damage to liberty is done in 4 years.
To that I quote Founder John Adams:
…A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it…
- John Adams, Letter to Abigail 1775
Some of your countrymen see something that perhaps you refuse to allow yourself to recognize in your patriotic bravado: that this mob that has chosen Socialism sees you as the enemy. Soon your neighbors and family will share the sentiment for the promise of bread or security.
While some may grieve aloud – some of us stuff it down deep and pretend we can restore what cannot be restored once lost.
How can we expect God to hear and rescue the nation from our follies when we have turned a blind eye to the genocide of the unborn in our own nation?
Who the hell are we but Germans who looked the other way when millions were sent to gas chambers and ovens? In our generation, on our watch as a Christian people – we stood idle while an entire generation of infants were stabbed in the brain and sucked out with a vacuum.
Where the hell was the Christian church to stand against that holocaust? Where the hell were they to teach their children and their brethren to be chaste and virtuous??
Where were they to decry sinful sexual deviancy and adultery??
Where was the Christian church when God was banned and removed from school?
Where was the Christian church when God’s commandments were tossed from the public square?
I’ll tell you where they were: silent. Capitulators to the deviancy that destroyed our culture.
Can we be surprised if God is silent in a coming time when we are in need of His aid?
Where will the Christian church be when they come to remove the scriptures and criminalize our teachings?
I tell you where they will be – the same damn place they were when the culture went to hell: standing with the mob.
Some of us are resolved to fight.
Some, because of however the Spirit directs – feel the need to flee.
And such persons are grieving, and we need to look to their example today.
Are we so callous, so indifferent or in such denial that we will not afford ourselves to do the same??
We deserve what is coming.
Despite what you are about to experience, our robes will be made white in the flames of tribulation – because the Christian church has gone lukewarm in America, neither hot, nor cold - God is going to vomit us forth from His mouth – and we will undergo trial by fire to see what kind of mettle we are made of.
Grieve now, and show God your remorse for how carelessly we regarded His precious gift of liberty.
Grieve now and show God in tears our sorrowfulness for slapping him in the face by neglecting our duty to guard the culture which was the vanguard of the Republic.
Grieve now, and show God our gratitude for the blessings we have squandered and the liberty we are about to lose.
Perhaps if we all grieved, and we repented – we might hold onto what we have just a little while longer by the Grace and Mercy of God.
But do not deceive yourselves by thinking we are going to restore what is and will be lost.
We were warned.
We did not heed.
Now we must prepare to endure, and hold on to the Crown of Life God has blessed us with.
Do not be discouraged with what you will see in the future. Be steadfast and endure knowing that this judgment is a long time coming.
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever. – Thomas Jefferson
