“Know this day, and establish it in your heart, that Adonai is God in heaven above and on earth below – there is no other” (Deuteronomy 4:39). We are tempted in times of great challenge to look elsewhere for counsel and guidance. Unlike early America whose leaders publicly proclaimed seeking the wisdom, the direction, the assistance of God, America today appears to be greatly void of such faith, of such submission to the One and true source of all authority – The Lord Himself! The public declaration of God as a source for anything, other than slang, can bring an entire room of thousands to a screeching silence (as witnessed during the recent Academy Awards when Matthew McConaughey said he gives thanks to God). How sad and how far we have fallen as a Nation who once proclaimed “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
There are cruel leaders across the globe who have not an iota of concern for the well-being of their people; North Korea, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, Russia are quick examples where such punitive despots reside in grandiose and wealthy splender – all at the expense of the citizens trapped under their dictatorships. These Machiavellian (amoral, unscrupulous and expedient for selfish purposes) Rulers are not content remaining within the boundaries of their own countries, but feel inspired to impose their behaviors on countries established conversely away from such heinous philosophies. The United States of America has been a target for elimination almost from our inception. Within our first 60-years of existence, darkness was at work in the hearts of those who detested what America’s Founders publicly proclaimed – that we are a nation not afraid to stand alone for the rights of men, since we were born that way, as the only nation on earth that came into being “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” Our Founders stated unquestionably that our liberty is under God and can be found nowhere else. When we lose sight of our relationship with God, we will lose our liberty. The despots of the world detest America and what we stand for as a culture, as a nation. Those who detest the God of Israel and the same God of America, also detest our standing as the leading force for good in a world filled with cruelness, with evil intent, with leaders who only care about themselves and their ideologies, and desire to impose both on everyone else.
I wrote in my previous Olive Branch Report article “Ukraine in Civil War – who cares?” (Feb. 20th); Americans have not come to terms with living in an America no longer feared and respected; an America with a weak president still ignorant about world affairs, seen as a liar, and a staunch leftist ideologue. The despots across the globe know this, and more about Obama, and they know the only people who need to fear the suit occupying the Oval Office are the American people! While America has made many mistakes in foreign policy matters, for the most part, America has remained committed to the foundational ideals scripted by our Founders as I stated above. We tried to remain on the right side, to correct the wrong side from imposing tyranny everywhere it stepped. The Soviet Union has murdered millions of its own citizens (look at the incomplete list of countries I mentioned above, they all share this diabolical and heinous fact); the Soviet Union enslaved entire nations removing any resemblance of freedom, and it has undermined democracy throughout the world, including here in America.
Why should the Ukraine crisis matter to U.S.? Once again we witness the clash between two economies; good v evil. This depiction is repeating itself in countries across the globe that American media is deliberately not airing. You are fortunate to watch snippets of the Ukraine crisis. The collapse of economic stability; the collapse of provisions and modicum of security; the imposing of even heavier-handed tyranny on citizens; the loss of livelihoods, homes, lives are representations coming for the citizens of the United States of America from those in positions of power and authority in our country who detest what our Founders created under God’s guidance and counsel. A sophisticated and well-coordinated assault has been underway for several years now by those who waited a life time to get into position and accomplish what they are rapidly succeeding by tearing down and shredding – this nation separate and exceptional built as a light on the hill for the world to see. Our weakness on the international stage is not by accident; it is a planned event, and the consequences will have a terribly sobering and damaging effect across the board – just like in Syria, just like in Egypt, just like in the Ukraine – and soon in Iran and China, as these latter two countries step in to threaten us and fill the void of leadership. America is being weakened by design; domestically and internationally. The Rule of Law, our form of representative government, the inalienable rights so magnificently laid as our foundation are to be shredded and discarded. A New-World Order is to be introduced – one where the God of Israel and America will not be welcomed!
“Therefore, you are to keep his laws and mitzvot (commands) which I am giving you today, so that it will go well with you and with your children after you, and so that you will prolong your days in the land Adonai your God is (has) given you forever” (Deuteronomy 4:40). Don’t look to the church; however, find a fellowship of Believers who understand what it means to be a Remnant People. Do not look toward another for guidance and answers. Begin now, while there is still precious time remaining, to submit to the Lord for His counsel and guidance in all matters. The preponderant majority of our elected officials no longer demonstrate “fruit of the Spirit” showing they walk in submission and humility to the Lord. This world is quickly fading away, and the events you may hear about or catch glimpses of through some media outlet, are examples of this truth. Begin to walk as Children of the King! Begin to live in submission to the authority and teachings of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In this manner, you shall never walk alone.
