To the Citizens of the United States
The Covid-19 pandemic has officially surpassed the year mark in America. This last year has been extremely challenging for many of us. These challenges have manifested themselves in some of the most open-air attacks on our liberties, freedoms, and the Republic that any alive has ever seen.
During this last year, we have seen our country change in ways that were once only reserved for movies. Dr. Fauci has called for no masks, masks, and now two masks. Our Governors have mandated masks with no end dates. Our businesses, schools, restaurants, and recreational activities have closed and re-opened only with heavy restrictions. Our news sources, podcasts, radio, television, Netflix shows, and cable programs have been designed to slowly install thinking in terms of party lines, ethnicity, and hoaxes (covid, masks, politicians, etc.). Our country is being force-fed that it is a racist paradise and the only way to solve it is with a new legislative act or a new social submission ritual. We are told that assault rifles are killing people and must be banned. That our children need to learn new ways of thinking in schools and at home as not to become racist against people of color. That our police are hunting down black Americans in the streets. That choosing to not wear a mask is ignorant, conspiratorial, and endangers everyone’s life around them. That chaos and anarchy perpetrated by Antifa and other extreme ideologies in America are peaceful protests and the violence, damage, and loss of life they cause should be tolerated and accepted as heroism. That an entire demographic within this country, specifically the white population, is racist and the architects of systemic systems that must be immediately dismantled. That any sign, symbol, statue, or vestige of that said history or system is inflicting pain and suffering and must be removed or changed to a more polite and correct version.
Our ability to interact with other humans has been cut off. Our rights granted under the founding documents have been attacked and eroded. To question the cause of the division is hearsay. To question when any of this ends means you are not compassionate. To use critical thinking skills and base the current events against the rules and regulations of our Republic mean you are an insurrectionist.
The speed of the change is the most maniacal part of it all.
Within just one year our society has devolved into a mob rule, politically correct, godless, idealistic, cancel culture, ethnocentric democracy.Publius
These challenges, being as testing and omnipresent as they seem, are only small chapters in God’s plan for us and this country. As Americans, we must resolve ourselves no matter our political affiliations, personal beliefs on the pandemic, socioeconomic status, race, creed, color, and orientation; to uphold the founding principles granted to all citizens of this country. Our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence were written for man with concepts afforded to us by God and require protection for perpetuation and longevity. The founding fathers understood that God alone provided us with unalienable rights that needed to be constructed into an authoritative body governed by man and protected from foreign and domestic adulteration. Just as one needs to test the spirits to discern if it is self, the holy spirit, evil spirits, or angels; we must test our culture, our society, our politicians, and our national pulse against the charters of freedom.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1
What is unique about our country is that America affords all of its citizens and its guests, both legal and illegal, certain protections. These protections are written as rights for citizens but extend to all on our soil. They are the freedom to practice religion, protection from harm, to pursue life, liberty, and happiness, and many more.
Americans of all backgrounds need to remember that God is always speaking.
My sheep hear My voiceJohn 10:27
We must dedicate time, now more than ever, to listen for God’s word. Our lives are divided, distracted, and distant from the intention of this nation and for his personal plans for us. In order to set the nation straight, we must resolve to set ourselves straight first. We are the collective of this nation and his kingdom and until we individually decide to listen and obey can the nation course correct. The answers to our current national political, social, and economic problems can never be solved by the solutions of just man. God helped architect our nation and wants to enjoy union and fellowship with its citizens but that joy is only reserved for those who seek him first and listen.
Once we listen and spend time in his word we will start to see the path to exit the chaos and once again lay in peaceful pastures. The path will not be easy, you will need to test the spirits for authenticity, but once discovered your ability to navigate becomes illuminated and the journey becomes bearable.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”Matthew 17:20
What is the mountain you need to move to hear the Lord? Find it and start with the first pebble.
