Like it or not, Robert De Niro is probably the most recognized and celebrated male representative of the anti-Trump “Resistance” movement here in America. His latest obscenity-laced outburst at the Tony Awards last week was both painful and pathetic. And still it drew a standing ovation from the crowd of Liberal New York Democrats all suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome. But there is something going on here that begs a deeper look…
A Catholic priest is called Father for a very good reason. Adam was appointed by God to be high priest and father of humanity. He was called by God the Father to minister and offer sacrifice in the temple of creation by serving and protecting the sanctuary of that temple, namely Eden. The Pope is called the Holy Father. We all know about The Fall. Here’s where it gets interesting…
Man, as a result of original sin, will always be tempted to want to become like God without God, to use his free will in such a way that he is no longer truly free, but a slave to sin, a slave to his own wants and desires, a slave to his instincts and passions. This means being more animal-like.
Most of the men I’ve known who have become good fathers have raised sons to become good fathers as well…by serving and protecting the sanctuary of that temple, namely Family. But something has changed. The Patriarch, under vicious and ruthless attack by radical Feminists on one front, and Globalists on the other, is softening, giving in to his own wants and desires, sitting in silence as the temple is sacked and plundered, and literally beginning to self-destruct.
These Drudge headlines from yesterday alone: 17 killed in nightclub brawl…Moscow Taxi Driver Mows Down Fans…Another Cash-Strapped Cabbie Commits Suicide…The Hitler of South Africa Tells White People He Won’t Kill Them…Yet. These are all signs that the “serving and protecting” qualities, so crucial to our fatherhood, have been abdicated by the general population of mankind for quite some time now.
De Niro and Trump are the modern-day Babel and Nineveh passing one another on the vertical plane. Trump’s Nineveh (#MAGA) is in its ascension as De Niro’s Babel (Swamp) is…draining. Both realize it too. De Niro’s rage is real…he isn’t acting. Trump has been anointed for something far greater than himself…and he knows it. Which brings us to the point of today’s message…
The difference between the good shepherd and the sheepdog…By God’s grace, we are blessed with a window of time in which to act for the sake and salvation of our eternity. The qualities-gone-missing in us are re-manifest as shepherd and sheepdog. Some are called to one, while those of us like myself are called to the other. My history of being gaslighted by a Liberal caused me to experience my shepherd as “focusing me away from the enemy” in last week’s SMTU, when in reality he was strengthening me for the fight. Happy Fathers Day!
OH, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds. My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart.
God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day. If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready. He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.
Behold, the wicked brings forth inequity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High. ~ Psalm 7:9-17
