I have a friend who eschews most of the editorials regarding government problems and the people involved. Indeed I confess I also feel somewhat overwhelmed by all the negative rhetoric that comes to me in the email and airwaves; as a result I delete or tune out a large percentage of it.
It certainly appears that between government chicanery and Conservative commentary there is little change from week to week; certainly nothing much to hear of an edifying nature, i.e. optimistic or hopeful. It is understandable that many would rather just tune out rather than be assaulted with a constant barrage of negative tripe.
Most all of us are largely fed up with what goes on in government at all levels, but ( and I say it in a positive vein, because the word in most circumstances negates everything that came before it) so again, but it is imperative that we remain informed, armed with truth, and are engaged in righteous doing. Remember that there has always been a battle between right and wrong, good and evil since the beginning of man. There is no denying the fact that, that battle appears more intense now than before any time in the past history of our nation with the exception of perhaps the events of the Revolutionary War. I am sure this is how it should be; it is always darkest before the light.
Most of us are of the mindset that Principle does matter, the constitution is and remains the Law of the Land to spite certain elected officers obvious contempt for it. We cling to the hope that our vote and diligent pursuit of right will prevail. It remains painfully obvious however that there is a ruling majority in offices that are in every sense of the word Marxist, and they need to be defeated.
There is a story of interest in the Scriptures of the Prophet Elisha who was a consultant to the King of Israel. When the People of Israel desired a more spacious place to dwell than they were previously confined they trespassed upon Syrian land and the King of Syria came to war against Israel by night and surrounded them. Elisha’s young Servant rose early in the morning to discover the army of Syria and with fear in his heart alerted Elisha., Elisha’s response was “Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.’ And Elisha prayed, and said Lord I prey the, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha” 2 Kings 6:16-17.
It is important for us to know that our course is true and correct, that even though it may appear our efforts are not bearing much fruit, the armies of the Lord are round about us, and will bear us up in our efforts; may we have our eyes opened that we might see as did the servant of Elisha that we are truly not alone in our efforts to restore and heal our great Nation.
