Resurrect the Republic

Folks, let's face it the Republic is dead. With a stroke of a pen, the fraud-in-chief signed America's death certificate this week. She died a slow, painful, and near her end, a pleading for life death caused by the cancer of progressivism, a disease of the brain that causes the host to believe the Constitution is no longer relevant, it has outlived its usefulness, and that Government experts know what is best for the people and nation.

When I tried to put my feelings into words, I had a strong sense of loss, a grieving, as if I mourned the passing of a dear, loved one. That's why I wore black clothes most of this week. Now, I never met a feeling I can trust so as rational thought regained control, I looked to God, the Supreme Ruler and Judge of the Universe. Re-connecting with my Creator in prayer has a way of grounding, stabilizing, and clarifying. God reminded me that He holds the future in His hands, and no matter how much the pretended leadership of this nation mocks Him and those of us who know the Risen One - Yeshua - we know He has resurrection power. In this truth, we have faith.

With this faith, I have to choose. Will I continue to serve a false hope that somehow we, who are finite, can turn the ship of state around? Or, will I follow the lead of the Infinite, Holy One? In a recent after-signing speach, the mocker-in-chief ridiculed those of us who opposed the death legislation and feared the loss of freedom in America. He laughed at the notion Armageddon would begin, asteroids would strike the planet, and great cracks in the earth would appear. He said he looked up to see if these things would happen and as it turned out, it was a nice day. The Lord reminded me of other self-proclaimed world leaders who mocked the Almighty: Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander the Great, and Caesar. God in His mercy gave them time to repent. However, while God deals with our proud leaders in Washington, what do we, the people do.

As I see it, faith leads me to choose resurrection life. How do we resurrect the Republic? People of faith, and specifically the Body of Christ, must begin in prayer. Most of us are keenly familiar with this passage of scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If . . . My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." For me, the sin of progressivism stands out. It is a slow destroyer, but a destroyer nonetheless. I reject progressivism in all its many forms, and specifically false compassion that believes Government can provide better for people than the Creator. I embrace the cause of liberty anchored by the Constitution. I choose to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with other liberty-loving Americans who look to our nation's new birth of freedom, re-founded on Constitutional principles, which protect our God given rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness - the guarantee that what He provides to His people is not taken away under the guise of redistribution by a government of, by, and for elites.
