At This Time in History  

At This Time in History
By Amanda Alverez

The words written by the Apostle Paul 100’s of years ago are so on point for the chaotic times we are experiencing in America, today.

“To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace and peace to you. We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.” 1 Thessalonians 1:5

If we pause to allow these priceless words soak into our brain, what America is confronting should resonate. Like Thessalonians, do you think America’s churches are out-of-step with God’s ways? As important, do you think Americans are listening to God?

Of course, we have to ask if anyone thinks most churches still understand the meaning of faith, love, and hope. Every Sunday Americans flock to churches to receive a quick “howdy” from mostly unqualified church leaders while God’s meat is nowhere to be found! If we are to teach people about Godly ways, then shouldn’t we be teaching God’s word – not just handshakes and empty smiles?

An old song about letting our lights shine instead of hiding them under a basket says it all. Republicans are normally spineless and prefer hiding their light under a basket. On the other hand, Democrats shine their blinding lights everywhere but only to blind the masses while hiding their corrupt actions. Sadly, both are disobedient to God’s word, aren’t they?

Most have been turned off by the “weak-kneed” Republicans tiptoeing around the Democrat crime scenes. They arrogantly proclaim superiority because fighting is beneath their dignity. Government corruption doesn’t bother Republicans because they can fellowship with criminals all day long. They even refer to them as, “The Honorable Senator.” The only word that escapes Republicans is courage.

On the other hand, Democrats are the first on the crime scene, shining their blinding lights to keep anyone from observing the crime details then successfully manipulating the media to promote the lie that Republicans are guilty. The only word that escapes Democrats is transparency.

Democrats falsely believe success comes from wickedness. Once they develop their evil plan, then like a nest of Hornets, they and their accomplices attack by lying, maligning, humiliating, and never stopping until they destroy innocent lives. Today, there seems to be no limit to what Democrats will do to gain power and money.

When meeting Democrats, I love to ask, “What is the one thing all Democrats cherish the most?” While it shouldn’t be a difficult to respond, their contorted speech and body language speak volumes! The Apostle Paul spoke about such people many years ago and it is still relevant.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:18-32

The lack of appropriate leadership from government agencies, employees, and leaders explains why Americans can no longer depend upon equal justice, the rule of law, and transparency. If America is to succeed, Government leaders, agencies, and personnel supporting anti-American rhetoric or regulations must be expelled from power.

Americans are going to have to awaken to the reality that America is now in the hands of “we the people.” Anti-Americans must now be dealt with in the harshest ways, quickly. We must back law enforcement and the rule of law – regardless.

America must get back to the basics, correct this downward spiral, and restore America to its place of honor among all Nations. There is only one way this will be accomplished. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
