Not By Me, Says the Lord
This is my dog, Rinti. I never have a good reason to include her in this blog, so I decided to show you her new harness. It’s (supposedly) escape-proof. We’ll see. She’s a Jack Russell and knows how to shuck off a harness.
She loves it. She thinks that it’s a bullet-proof vest. (Don’t tell her, if you see her.) After all of the rioting and looting last year by the Democratic Party’s terrorist arm – Black Lives Matter, she began to feel a little anxious when we walked in the park every day. (It’s really a cemetery, don’t tell her if you see her.)
Now with her bullet-proof vest, she walks boldly and proudly.
Security is important to all of us. And now that the Democrats have stolen the election from a legitimate president, Donald Trump, and have illegitimately taken power in Washington (along with stealing the Georgia Senate seats), we can be excused if we all feel a little insecure.
Christians, particularly after thousands of years of misinterpretation of the Bible, feel confused about what to do next. The confusion comes because the church has taught (for those thousands of years) that governments are instituted by God, and therefore, you MUST obey them. Notice that the church has taught this while it has been in league with those oppressive governments. Notice also, that here in America, so-called Christian ministers taught Black slaves that they must obey their masters, and used the Bible as support for that. (That infuriates me.)
Look at Hosea 8:4 “They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not:”
Israel (the northern Kingdom; Judah was the southern kingdom) had raised up governments that were illegitimate. God said that they were “not by me”. And see what the result would be: Hosea 8:7 “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind:”
One of the things we can expect, then, is that January 20, 2021 was the first day of the last times for the American leftists and the Democratic Party. The end may not come soon, but they have set in motion the whirlwind which will, one day, sweep them from history and our great nation.
Let’s look at one more “not by me”:
Isaiah 54:15 “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.”
Those enemies who gather against the righteous are not gathered by him. Therefore, fighting them will NOT be fighting against God, but will be a righteous act. And what will be the result of that righteous action?
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
After two “not by me’s” notice one “of me” in that verse: their righteousness is “of me”. The righteousness of the fight is “of me”, says the Lord.
It’s important to know WHO to fight; any fight against evil is a righteous fight. Leftists, Socialists, Communists (those are synonyms) are evil. However, timing is everything. It’s important to know WHEN to fight.
It isn’t, yet, the time to make war, but it IS the time to make ready.
Rinti’s ready, with her bullet-proof vest.
