Losing Hope While Maintaining Faith

As I sit, trying to regain the passion to speak out about the death of America that we are facing , I cannot grasp what is occurring. I love this country but I don’t think we will stand strong enough to hold her up much longer. My fire is slowly burning out and I am honestly ready for the next chapter already.

I turn to a second hand firearm sight to see if there are any deals worth looking at and all I see is fighting, price gouging and a lack of intellectual conversations taking place there. Like children fighting over toys, these grown men are making the worst arguments over sighting and zeroing a scope. We are headed for the end of times and we are going to go down over a scope?

Many fear the bombing of Syria will start the destruction of America and this will be the case, so the answer some individuals are posting is to NUKE the Middle East on every site I see. Sure, secure our death sentence. The Middle East is not going to take us down, but their allies are sure to do it for them. Using Nuclear weapons in a region so shattered from blood shed would probably be a blessing in disguise for them, but the end for us. When Russia and China storms our shores, who do we have to lean on? Nobody anymore, because we allowed our tyrannical government to seal that deal all while fighting amongst ourselves.

In my news feed, friends who are against immigration reform and amnesty make comments about marijuana usage. The hypocrisy of stating that if the world had more pot smokers, it would be a calmer place is the dumbest I have heard for a while.  If there were even more pot smokers, the drug cartels would have a larger market and more reason to kill each other. The illegal aliens that we do not want here are the same people smuggling in the drugs.

And that leaves us with the patriotic groups themselves that set out for monetary gain, using a time of crisis to profit the largest sums they have ever seen. Between T shirt sales and donate buttons all in the name of “growing” to spread the message. What message are they spreading? They are only spreading hate and hypocrisy. You try to exercise your right to free speech, it works fine until you say one thing they disagree with and see if they let you play along anymore.

I have heard too many times, we should sit and wait until midterms. Our government must have heard us calling upon that also and will take midterms out of the equation now by striking Syria. We are doing what we claimed we were tired of doing since the 1960’s and don’t even realize it do we? Did many of us not set out, vowing to never let us be pushed aside again? Did we not say we will now stand and fight these tyrants? I sure haven’t seen that happen.

Peaceful demonstrations they said, that will wake up the masses. Many set out to do that, just to be blindsided by attacks from “fellow patriots” who said the ideas and times were wrong. From February until current, we have allowed some PATRIOTIC GROUP to spoil any hope we have made to reverse these evil times. I have stated many times in many writings that we would sit and watch destruction, some of us out of fear others out of ignorance, wanting to try peacefully, but that isn’t working. Responses range from “give it time”, to “who will lead us?” Jesus would lead us if we were ready, but we cannot purify our hearts and allow him in no matter how many times we say we will.

War is a terrible thing. Some wars are more “just” than others, but war is always the result of sin (Romans 3:10-18). At the same time, Ecclesiastes 3:8 declares, “There is…a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” In a world filled with sin, hatred, and evil (Romans 3:10-18), war is inevitable. Christians should not desire war, but neither are Christians to oppose the government God has placed in authority over them (Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:17). The most important thing we can be doing in a time of war is to be praying for godly wisdom for our leaders, praying for the safety of our military, praying for quick resolution to conflicts, and praying for a minimum of casualties among civilians on both sides (Philippians 4:6-7).

Many scriptures warn us of the necessity of war, but we are stuck on Jesus turning the other cheek. God will not come down and resolve the evil from our eyes, but he has made those who accept him in their hearts strong enough to do it. David, small in size was given the power to take down Goliath. God led a small army against outnumbering oppositions to victory. Our founding fathers have spelled out in easy to read instructions about tyrants and the need to rid them.

I honestly do not know if I would want to be considered a patriot or a constitutionalist from this day on. I want to be a soldier for my savior Jesus Christ and to do so, the next chapter will have to begin I believe. It will take an invasion before any army, but mainly God’s army, to right the wrong.

I do not want to sit any longer, wondering when the next opportunity to exit poverty will be, or how long I can put clothes on my kids and food in their stomachs. The anticipation is exhausting and disheartening all at the same time.

We sit and wait for an easy to see sign while ignoring all the signs before it. If the poisoning of our children through vaccinations, fluoride in our water, chemtrails in our skies or GMO’s in our food hasn’t been enough; and death from cowardly attacks from hijacked planes, endless war, or the persecution of Christians all over the world hasn’t been enough, we will never understand the sign of the times until we are all on our knees finally trying to flood our hearts with true purity and the love of our savior.

God promised to never flood the lands again and many have taken that as a false thought of God never ridding the earth of his creations but make no mistake, God can be an angry god, and we know Revelations speaks of fire on earth. God will not flood us, he will burn us alive and he will do so without remorse for us not understanding the signs. He has already spoken of the signs through John, the ones we ignore while waiting to see our God come down and speak to us himself.

I am ready, whether or not God sees me fit to live eternally in the New Jerusalem or not, I am ready. I would rather be judged heavily by my Lord than spend years in hypocrisy. While we continue going backwards and doing circles, remember evil is on a straight forward path and many steps ahead of us.
