And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32.
Since French Humanists elected to the first Parliament claimed all seats on the left side of the chamber and declared themselves “Leftists” to show symbolic solidarity with the goats of the Bible, hatred for all things and all people Christian is the hallmark of every Leftist movement and political party since 1789.
Let the Hero born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel, since my God is marching on.
More than forty years have passed since the rise of the Jesus Movement, a phenomenon that successfully turned back the Leftist madness of the 1960s. The Jesus Movement planted the seeds for today’s civilizational conflict pitting Free America against Free-Stuff America; those intent on preserving (or conserving) the legacy of the American Revolution, against those that wish to transform our republic into a Venezuelan-style Socialist dictatorship with all the honors and benefits occurring thereto.
Most, if not all, of the long-haired friends of Jesus during the 1970s remember the discussions, the books, the songs, and the movies that claimed we were facing the End Times, and most of us believed it. Some of us even dismissed Leftist hegemony on American culture and Leftist hatred of and hostility toward evangelical Christianity as just the way things had to go before the Messiah pierced the sky and the Leftists fled to the caves to hide from the face of the One who had come.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
But, a funny thing happened on the way to Armageddon. Yes, someday the Messiah will come. However, contrary to what most of us believed then, the Self-Existent One (Yehovah) revealed that He was not yet finished with either the United States or Israel. His hand was upon the foundation of both nations, and despite the evil both societies have allowed to flourish in their midst, I am reminded that God employs his goodness, not his wrath, to draw people to Himself. For the sake of ten righteous, He will not destroy the city.
In the final analysis, we must always remember that Leftists are themselves, first, and foremost, victims of an insidious deception that preys upon the half-educated, the weak-minded, those susceptible to covetousness and petty jealousies; in short, cannon fodder brainwashed to believe they’re foot soldiers for progress. As happens after every successful progressive revolution, the foot soldiers are murdered first to prevent them from rebelling against the New Order as they had against the old.
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
Two years ago last month, Donald John Trump descended to the lobby of Trump Tower to announce he was running for POTUS. The Left jeered and laughed, so certain they were such a one as Trump had no chance, or about as much chance as Ross Perot had of winning during the 1990s.
He has loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword.
The more The Donald talked, campaigned, and debated (unlike the mealy-mouthed elite political class in both parties) issues of greatest importance to the masses, the more his ranks of supporters swelled. The clueless political class stood by stupefied as the Working Class of America united behind a single candidate that spoke their language and assured them he believed in the same America as they, and with God’s blessing they would help him make America great again.
His truth is marching on.
Now maybe Trump won because he colluded, not with the Russians but with the Self-Existent One who seems to have let loose again His terrible swift sword against the descendants of the same Democrat cabal that crumbled while His truth went marching on to Appomattox County Courthouse.
Make no mistake, however, today’s reality was planted all those years ago when half the country either became Jesus People or were influenced by friends and family that became young Christians, people that chose to sit on the floor instead of padded pews and play fifty dollar guitars in lieu of fifty thousand dollar organs. That decade when the hippies yelled, “Yippee, I’m saved!”
So, if you love America, and you voted for Trump, maybe tonight you can give your grandparents a hug for daring to say yes to Christ all those years ago. Despite all our flaws (and they are legion) we really had no idea back then what God had in store for those that love Him.
Remember, God is not mocked. Whatever seeds you plant will produce a harvest after its kind. God chose to spare the righteous and condemn and destroy the Left, for the Left challenged the LORD, and He accepted.
His truth is marching on.
