My week began on very somber and disturbing news from the land of my ancestors…
Scotland’s new odious hate crime bill would go so far as to criminalize dinner table conversations if their ‘offensive’ content is reported to police. Hate-crime bill-supporter Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf (pictured above), who has publicly lamented Scotland’s “whiteness” (sound familiar?) has said journalists, writers and theater directors could also be dragged into the courts if their work is deemed to have stirred up “prejudice.” ~ Death of Free Speech?
And it only got worse here, in an article exposing those plotting the death of freedom here…
As openly Marxist revolutionary groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa have burned, vandalized and looted America’s cities daily for months, destroying businesses, assaulting and sometimes murdering people, today’s journalists have routinely dismissed it all as “mostly peaceful protests” against “systemic racism” and “police brutality” – while complaining loudly that America is actually under siege by “white supremacists.” Those who dare point out that it’s really hard to find many genuine “white supremacists” in today’s America, let alone rampaging hordes of them laying waste to the nation’s cities, are of course immediately condemned as white supremacists themselves. ~ Guardians of the Swamp
I’m taking all of this in as the nightmare of 2020 continues to unfold, wondering how in the year of perfect vision (20/20), men grew so blind. I thought of two great quotes from two great men. One a statesman, the other a pastor (shepherd).
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke 1729-1797
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ~ Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer 1906-1945
And then as the week drew to an end, I read the words of a prophet from the past (520 B.C) whose name means “God remembers,” For the idols speak delusion; The diviners envision lies, And tell false dreams; They comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; They are in trouble because there is no shepherd. ~ Zechariah 10:2
…and one courageous shepherd of the modern day; We are witnessing a great collaboration between Archbishop Vigano and President Trump that is reminiscent of the divinely inspired alliance between President Reagan and Pope John Paul ll which ended (but did not eliminate) the advance of Communism in the last century. From Vigano’s Oct 25th letter to President Trump:
As I said when I wrote my letter to you in June, this historical moment sees the forces of Evil aligned in a battle without quarter against the forces of Good; forces of Evil that appear powerful and organized as they oppose the children of Light, who are disoriented and disorganized, abandoned by their temporal and spiritual leaders…The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against Covid-19 and Covid-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups. Beyond the enormous economic interests that motivate the promoters of the Great Reset, the imposition of the vaccination will be accompanied by the requirement of a health passport and a digital ID, with the consequent contact tracing of the population of the entire world. Those who do not accept these measures will be confined in detention camps or placed under house arrest, and all their assets will be confiscated. Open_Letter_to_POTUS
Vigano’s letter 100% corroborates The Darkest Winter breakdown of the evil behind the “Great Reset”.
…and as if this were not enough…from my dear friend Barbara;
Our enemies are trying to wipe us off the face of the earth, literally. Our enemies are not outside the gates, they are inside the gates. The enemies of Christianity are trying to ensure that Christianity has no future. Will you let them do that? How will we stop them? I’m not exactly sure, but I do know this. Either we will heal or we will die. Either we will unite as Christians despite our differences, or our enemies will win and our grandchildren and their grandchildren will live in a truly post-Christian world. Let us all pray for Christian unity because it is the key to our survival. It is time we need to all start praying for and working toward Christian unity. There is simply too much at stake. ~ Matthew Kelly, The Biggest Lie In The History Of Christianity
Add to this the amazing investigative journalism of Corey’s Digs, “In just three days we will witness a red wave turn into a tsunami. The energy can already be felt. I fully believe that no amount of voter fraud can reverse what is coming, and no level of legal challenges will hold up. A rise of insanity, chaos, and destruction will be met with force. Any plans to prevent this presidency from moving forward will be thwarted. This is the only way it can be, for what is yet to come is the dismantling. The world has spoken, all eyes are on the U.S., and united we stand with those across all borders who equally want the new world order regime to be removed, the Deep State to be demolished, and all whom have perpetrated evil on the people to be imprisoned.”
Last Sunday was a remarkable day of affirmation for those of us who see what is really going on in this great land of ours. I woke up to the Billy Joel song Second Wind and knew instantly what God was telling me. The dismantling Corey is referring to is, in a word, the lie. In essence, all of those who illegally conspired and schemed to destroy our country as prerequisite for the Great Reset. The greatest and most unimaginable crimes against humanity are about to be fully revealed, and those responsible brought to justice. And a grateful nation is already turning out by the thousands upon thousands to thank the man who finally stood up to put an end to the madness. There will be some serious house-cleaning ahead…
Those who do not repent after some failure—or who do so only for public show—often lose their positions. Some sins no doubt disqualify leaders from continuing in leadership, but more fail in leadership from their deceptions than from their mistakes. ~ John C. Maxwell
David went on to be an even greater and more just king…after God’s own heart.
Truth is bold, beautiful, and righteous all by Itself. It does not need us to dress It up, make excuses for It, soften, harden, or alter It in any way. Our second wind is God’s grace opening the door to our revival IF we learn from our mistakes, find a way to come back together (John 17:21) as one nation under God, humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn back to Him (2 Chronicles 7:14), then He will heal our land! Today marks day one of our three days of prayer and fasting for this very thing. Won’t you join us? Who would dare to suffocate our second wind?
