American Freedoms Take Down

I just finished watching a documentary named ‘Raid on America’ put out by The Epoch Times. Regardless of political persuasion every person that claims to be American should watch it. I recommend but do not get anything for this recommendation. But it stirred up something in my soul that I must share. These feelings have been swirling around for a while and now I must write.

I am a red-blooded American at heart. When I was growing up the Democratic party or the Republican party did not mean anything but the person’s moral fiber that was running for office was all that mattered.

Hmmm. Moral fiber. What did that mean? It meant that what a person said is what they would do. It meant that what a person did is what came from their heart and they would stand by it. It meant that right would always be right and wrong would just wrong. But what is today’s definition of moral fiber? Seems it has changed.

Moral fiber today seems to be whatever is politically correct is all that matters. If a person lies to get ahead that is acceptable if it has a political agenda. What a person does, whether right or immoral, is OK as long as they are politically correct. Life has no sanctity so if someone does another in, whether physically or mentally, as long as there is some greater political reason it makes it OK, and if someone disagrees with this nonsense then they are labeled a domestic terrorist.

This political correctness is a war on America, the American people and the freedoms that American used to stand for.

If I cannot speak what I believe because it might offend someone, my freedom is canceled. If I cannot listen to someone that does not think like me without wanting to harm them, my freedom is canceled. If someone who does not agree with me cannot listen without wanting to do me in then my freedom is canceled along with theirs, for at some point in time what they believe should be done to a fellow American will eventually come true for them.

We are living in dangerous times. Right now we are living under a dictatorial regime that will do anything to stay in power, and both sides are equally to blame.

Why do you think all Trump supporters have been put on a domestic terrorist list?

Why do you think that all registered Republicans have been put on a domestic terrorist list?

Why do you think every person with a registered gun has been put on a domestic terrorist list?

Why do you think that all true Christian churches have been targeted because the people within are domestic terrorist?

Do you think the statements above are false? Go google these things and begin to think for yourself. Yes, there are always way far left or way far right people that just don’t make sense. Beware of them but there are many God fearing Americans that are speaking the truth you just have to look with open eyes and open ears.

Why do you think the powers are targeting the freedom of speech? Because of this one fact: One person standing up for the truth and speaking out so the people hear will bring down a dictatorship. So they fight against the freedom of free thoughts and free speech.

Our founding fathers feared this power of a few so immensely that it is why the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written, to try to keep America free. We are one of a handful of countries that based our freedoms on our God given rights, given to us by the Creator. This is why America grew. This is also what the political powers want stripped from us, the knowledge that we all have been created by God so we are all equal, not just a few, not just the ones in power, not just the rich, not just the people with a certain education, not just a certain color. We are all equal.

So please, America, Americans, look up from your texting, look up from your social media, look up from your party choice and courageously say, “I will think for myself. I will reason for myself. I will respect your freedom to speak as you believe so that I can keep my freedom of speech. If one of us loses that freedom we have all lost.”

Pray for America.

If my people, which are call by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles :14

Soul Hunter

Circling round and round ever she searches looking carefully for the hapless soul that she needs to survive. Unknown below, the souls that roam the earth, good and bad, each give off their own particular aura. She likes the pretty ones, so she soars high above to spot them. When she finds one alone, it becomes her prey and that soul is taken hostage and will not be able to find rest again. Its energy of fear and confusion feeds her thirst for power, ever above, ever searching.

The soul hunter, esquisite in many ways when viewed on earth, seems to be gracious and full of wisdom and knowledge. She uses her wiles to get people to do her bidding. She keeps those who fawn over her close to her and protected from earthly harm. All those that follow her charms and her whims, their souls are allowed to stay because they are not worth much anyway as their aura has been darkened by their deeds. She holds out a promise that she can fulfill the meaning of life and grant people the peace they desire. Inside she is a boiling pot of poison and evil. No one that looks on the outside can see inside for if they did they would run in terror. In her own eyes she cannot be defeated. The One still sees.

Until the battle that will end her reign of terror, she will continue her divinations, her spells, and her soul hunts. Many people that believe in good have fallen under her spell and have become one of the wandering souls in her prison. Too early good people are gone. In her world the evil are protected and live much longer than they should. She does not tell those around her that she knows of a power greater than hers. For now, she keeps the secret close to her heart; for in her spells is her power and fear gives her greedy gains of power over the weak-minded. Perhaps the battle of power will not come.

In her folly and gloating over all her souls, she ignores the One that can cause her harm, so on she goes with her soul hunts. Delighted with each hunt, listening to the cries of her prey souls, her ego and the adreneline rush keeps her hunting. Daily she goes out. Sometimes she hunts in the streets of the city, sometimes in the suburbs and sometimes even ventures further afield, but the cities hold the most prey. The souls are so busy with life that they rarely look up to see the awful truth of her rein of terror. They do not lift their eyes to the heavens to see the real beauty that is there. They are so busy with what they think is important, they become prey, and the prettiest ones are often the ones who think they see so clearly. Oh so lucky they cannot see her coming for them! They are blinded by their own busyness. Yet One sees.

Then the day came when everything changed. The light was so bright in the skies she could not hunt from above. She was used to soaring in the dark skies but now flying was impossible. On earth she could not always see the aura she sought so desperately. Weakness was finding her because of the light. Fear now took hold of her heart and her fear was the same as souls that she held in prison.

The skies grew brighter and the storms became stronger. The waves crashed over her. She was loosing grip of all her decieving power. The prison that she kept her souls in began to shake until the doors began to open. Not just one-by-one did they open, but with each wave more and more souls were ripped from their cells and from her hands. Wailing in fear and terror, she now felt the wrath of the only One that could defeat her. She had hoped he did not see and would grow tired of caring for these people. She thought wrong. With sudden fury and strength with His outstretched arm and with the power of His Word she was brought down very low. No more souls for her to feed on. No more weak people to do her bidding. Defeated.

The grip she thought she had on her world was gone. The power she wanted was in the hands of another.

The Lion had been watching. The Lion did care what happened to these earthly souls. The Lion … He came. The Lion no one could defeat had come and overpowered her and now the souls she kept imprisoned were free to find rest. Now she would be the one imprisoned in her own cell.

Good story? Fantasy? Could there even be a little bit of truth to this story. The story of good vs evil. The story cannot possibly have a base in the Bible, the real Bible, the Word-of-God Bible? Check this out.

“Woe to the women who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of My people but preserve your own? You have profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live. ” ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord. Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked to not turn from their evil ways and so save their lives, therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from you hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.'” Eziekel 13:18-23 NIV

The Bible has stories, but this one is real. Woe to those who call good evil and who call evil good. Woe to those who lie and cheat and steal and cause harm to the righteous. Beware. God is still on the throne and He will come down and visit those who do evil. Take heart, righteous people. We may suffer for a time but He will never give us more than we can bear. Take heart, righteous people and never give up the name of Jesus. Keep it always on your lips for He has the true power over life and death, victory and defeat, peace and wars.

Written in love for those who follow the Lion. Take care in these darkening times, Jesus is near.

Scripture from New International Version.

Oh My People…

If my people,

Which are call by my name,

shall humble themselves, and pray,

and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;

then I will hear from heaven,

and will forgive their sin,

and will heal their land.

America, I pray for you. This great nation God does not want to judge harshly for our sins. We need to repent and return to our first love. We need to acknowledge that God loves us and then honor Him with our songs of praise and obedience to Him. His commands are not hard, love one another even as He loved us. But if we choose to leave blinders on, as a horse has blinders and sees only a partial view of his world, then He will not relent but bring on us all the disasters decreed for us because of His righteous judgements. But those who have not rejected His leading, who have not strayed but stayed strong, He promises to never forsake His remnant or leave us unprotected.

America, those who are called by His name, sound the alarm, cry unto the Lord our God, gather the people because the day of the Lord is at hand, and in honest repentance and prayer, stand in the gap for America. Call to the Most High and see if He will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind Him. See if He will turn away His anger towards us.

Love humbly – Kathy

Encourage My people…

Encouragement—can be a noun or a verb; the action of giving someone support, confidence, or hope (New Oxford Dictionary); words or behavior that gives someone confidence to do something (Cambridge Dictionary).

In this crazy mixed up year of 2020 that seems to have imploded with worsening scenarios of more lockdowns, fewer freedoms, more government control of everything, and less liberty, we desperately need encouragement. We face not enough of anything such as toilet paper, laughter and humor, connection with our friends and loved ones, and hugs and kisses. It has been proven that people get over an illness quicker with hugs than without, and we are barred from the people that depend on us when they are ill.

Burning, looting, killing, badgering, lying, cheating, bribing, and committing fraud in the name of greed and power have become the norm. We have lost the ability to see a smile, caress a face, or give a helping hand to someone without crossing our social distancing boundaries. The ones pulling the strings on our puppet world have divided us as a nation and isolated us as human beings. Our souls are weary. Our hearts are dismayed. Our hope is waning.

Then comes the word encouragement…support, hope, confidence. Do not despair. God knew we would have storms and hard times and troubles, but God’s word is still alive and active. He cares. He sees. He is the great I Am.

Encouragement from Psalm 33

Praise and sing to God in verses 1-3

We are to sing and praise to God. Worship Him because worship is the weapon that the devil cannot tolerate nor can he do anything to stop us as we worship. It is our choice no matter what is going on in this crazy world of ours.

Who God is – verses 4-5

The words of God are faithful and have power and justice in them. The world showcases His love if we choose to see.

The strength and power of God – verses 6-9

God holds the seas and the earth in His hands and can store them in His warehouse. Holy fear and reverence is what we are to give, for when He spoke, everything was formed.

God’s plans are sure – 10-11

God does not let the evil rule for long. He sees and His plans will be the ones that remain forever.

He sees the nations and the peoples – 12-15

God chose to bless this nation because we honored Him. He looks down from heaven to see how we are doing. He sees our hearts.

No one is exempt from God’s power – 16-17

No weapon formed on earth can compete with the power of God the Father.

He sees His people and is moved to action – 18-19

When the Lord sees us we are protected and delivered from the things that are attacking and even in dry ground we will bloom.

He sees us and we have hope – 20-22

We wait for Him. We believe that He is. He is our very breath of life, our Savior and our King.

We are God’s people trying to navigate this perilous time. We should choose to be quiet before Him and praise Him for He lives in the praises of His people. We should worship Him because the evil around cannot bear to hear our words of worship. The words of worship is our weapon. He is our hope. He is our salvation. He will never leave us. He has promised to deliver us. Let us unerringly remind our hearts and our souls, that our hope is in Him.

Psalm 33

1 Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; 
it is fitting for the upright to praise Him.
2 Praise the Lord with the harp; 
make music to Him on the ten-stringed lyre.
3 Sing to Him a new song;
play skillfully and shout for joy.
4 For the word of the Lord is right and true; 
He is faithful in all He does.
5 The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of His unfailing love.
6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
their starry host by the breath of His mouth.
7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;
He puts the deep into storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord;
let all the people of the world revere Him.
9 For He spoke, and it came to be;
He commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The Lord foils the plans of the nations; 
He thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever;
the purposes of His heart through all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people He chose for His inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down and see all mankind;
14 from His dwelling place He watches all who live on earth -
15 He who forms the hearts who forms the hearts of all, 
who considers everything they do.
16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him,
on those whose hope is in His unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in His holy name.
22 May Your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in You.

Written in love,

…and to the Republic

I pledge allegiance to the flag –

            But now we allow it to be stepped on, burned, disrespected, and touted as evil.

Of the United States of America –

But we are not united anymore. Lies and corruption and more lies told by those who should be trustworthy.

And to the Republic for which it stands –

But it does not stand any longer.  The extremists of both liberals and conservatives have cut its throat. The officials have allowed greed and corruption to infiltrate every stronghold of the republic

One nation –

But we are not one nation. We are a group of people ruled over by those who believe we are not intelligent enough to make sound decisions while their decisions divide and destroy the American dream by annihilating freedom.

Under God –

But not according to those who kill, maim, and destroy anything in their way with hatred and power.

Indivisible –

But we are divided. We have been infiltrated by the enemy. The trap has been set and the last warning has been given.

With liberty and justice for all.

But no longer for all. The unborn are being killed. The old are being allowed to die because they hold no purpose. The workers that built America are being exterminated one small business at a time. The farmers that feed the American people are being persecuted without thought to the final outcome. We are told we have no rights because the Constitution is old and outdated, but those who are wielding power have that power because of the Constitution. We are labeled as non-humans because we believe differently than the corrupt officials.

In a republic, the citizens have the power and elected officials are to yield to what they believe. We have been stripped of this. Officials expect the citizens to yield to their power and, to a large extent, that has become the norm. For how much longer?

Liberals and conservatives alike are on the verge of losing the freedoms that allowed us to be different and still have the freedoms that made American the envy of the entire world. We are expected to speak only what we are told, believe only what information we are fed, go only where we are allowed, eat only what they decide is good for us, and take vaccinations without proper testing because they are more intelligent than the general public of America. If the liberal people think they are exempt from any of the tyrannical rules that are being set in place, they fool themselves.

America is dying at the hands of the elected officials that we the people elected—and they don’t care. They have power because of the terror we have allowed to grow. We the people made them rich, and when they get rid of us they will be made poor.

So, what do we as Americans and Jesus followers do as we see this inexplicable thing happening?


Take all of the concerns we have, all the fears, all the lack and loss, all the changes, all the regulations that allow us to be free to worship as we wish, and give them to the God who holds the key.


Then believe.

Pray some more.

And be encouraged, for God has not left this earth.  

Lay all our cares and worries of this earth down and pick up encouragement from the Lord. Pray the Word.

“You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; You encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.” Psalm 10:17-18

The wicked plot evil – “They encourage each other in evil plans, they talk about hiding their snares; they say, “Who will see it?” They plot injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!” But God will shoot them with His arrow; they will suddenly be struck down. He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin.” Psalm 64:5-8

Pray this against the evil ones – “Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds, and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord…I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.”

America is not without guilt. Christians in America are not without guilt. We have turned our backs on the homeless and weak. We have allowed God to be taken out of public view. We have closed our eyes to the atrocities that happen daily. But we are not without hope.

“If at any time I (God) announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned….Look, I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So, turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.” Jeremiah 18:7-8

God is gracious. God is good. God is merciful. God is trustworthy. God is holy. God is also a God of truth and justice and ready to forgive His people.

Return, America, to God.

Return, America, to Him who can change the trajectory of this land.

Return, America, and be healed. Repent of our ungodly ways and hatred and turn back to the only hope we have, the only light in the dark, the only encouragement that our souls and our hearts seek.

In humble love – Kathy

All scriptures NIV


Jonah was visited by God, Himself, and was told to go preach to Nineveh. That visit from God should have been enough for any normal person to immediately obey. Did Jonah? Nope. Not at all. He ran.

He did not want to go to Nineveh, a very-very sinful city. It was a large city because it was said it would take a person three days to walk across. He instead to jump into a ship to see if he could hide from God. Fat chance of that but he tried anyway.

After he boarded the ship, a storm came up and threatened to destroy the ship. What was Jonah doing? Sleeping.

Everyone else on this ship was crying out and praying to whatever god they chose to believe in. In desperation they woke up this sleeping person and asked him to pray to his god. He knew why the boat was in danger. He knew where the storm came from. He confessed to the crew that his God told him to do something, and he was running away. He also told the crew the only way to save the ship was to throw him overboard. They did not want to, but when the storm increased in strength, they had no choice. Overboard he went.

What happened next was not only remarkable but in my imagination totally yucky and gross. A fish, probably a whale, swallowed him whole. Now I don’t know about you but can you imagine the wild ride he had going from the sea into the mouth of this thing and sliding down the throat and into its stomach? Eeew. That would be the ultimate slime.

Now once he was in there, how would he stay afloat? My guess is this fish at some point in time swallowed a broken up ship and had pieces of wood that had not yet disolved and was just hanging out in there. So as one nearly hit him in the head with the water sloshing around (talk about sea sick) he grabbed onto it and hung on for dear life.

First miracle. He survived being swallowed by a fish. Second miracle. He was not being dissolved by stomach acids. It had to be dark in there except when the fish opened its mouth to eat something else. Even after all this, it took him three days to finally cry out with not only his voice but with his heart. He asked God for forgiveness for running away. He surrendered to the assignment he had been given. In this belly of a fish it still took time for his heart to change. Three whole days.

Then came the third miracle. God made the fish swim close to land and then – eew – the fish threw up – vomited, regurgitated – its stomach contents with Jonah in the middle of it onto the shore. I have seen a dog throw up and he has to work to get that done. Retching. Coughing. Yuk. So, I believe that this fish had to work up to it. It was probably the first time it had ever emptied his stomach contents onto land. So there was Jonah, on the shore, sitting in the middle of fish vomit. I wonder if he jumped back into the sea to wash off some of the yuck or just got up and said, “Not going back in there!”

So, Jonah walked to Nineveh. I don’t know how far away he was, but he walked. Dried off too. Hope he got to smelling better. When he got to Nineveh his message was short and sweet. “Repent because God is coming to destroy your city.” That is all that is recorded but it scared everyone like it was Covid19! Even the king of the city repented.

Jonah had given the message he was told to deliver. Secretly he was hoping, not for repentance, but a courtside seat to utter destruction. What a high he was looking forward to. He went a short distance from the city and waited for the end to come. He wondered if it would be like Sodom and Gomorrah? Would it be like the time God made the earth just open up and swallow all the people? He watched and he waited. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. He could hear the people in the city repenting of their sins and God in His mercy did not destroy the city at this time. He would destroy it 900 years later.

Jonah was visited by God, ran away from God, got swallowed by a fish, got vomited out by a fish, and gave the message of destruction to a city. When destruction did not come to the city he did what? He cried out to God again and said, “Just kill me. I am so disappointed that there will not be a show to watch! Just let me die. So disappointed. You canceled the fireworks. I knew you would.”

Have you ever been a Jonah? Did God ever ask you to do something that you really really did not want to do? Did that thing He asked you to do make any sense at all? Have you run away from your assignment and run away from God? I mean really, like God is not going to find you? I have been there.

You would think that I would know better than to think I could run away from the King of the earth, the maker of the heavens, designer of galaxies, and I was going the hide from Him? Nope. Not going to happen. No place on the face of this earth can you hide from God that He cannot find you. And your assignment, should you choose to accept His assignment, He will give you all you need to be successful. You cannot hide. You cannot deter what God has put into motion for you to fulfill your destiny. You can either be slimed, or blessed. Your choice.

In Christ’s love, Kathy

Open Letter to Nancy #5

Wow! A lot has happened since last time. I have kind of not wanted to get into some of this but there are some things that bother me and that I question. Oh, by the way, hello friend! I pray for you daily that God will guide your heart and mind to His truth.

The way I understand this new ‘culture’ is if you disagree with me you will be canceled from any further attention from me. Now, I don’t know about you but that really makes no sense at all if you think about it. What if it keeps being construed to mean more than it does now?

Take your child for instance, let’s say for this argument that you have tried to teach your child to say thank you when he receives a present. He absolutely refuses because he thinks he is owed the present so no thank you is required. Impasse. Will he be suddenly erased from your concerns? Will he suddenly be on his own?

Lets go the other way now. Say you mother, or close relative and you have a differing of opinions. Let’s say, for arguments sake, neither of you will budge on how you think. Do you just walk away and pretend they are no longer worthy of your attention?

Your religion is not the same as mine – you are canceled. Your political party is not the same as mine – you are canceled. You live in a different state and won’t move – you are canceled. You won’t protest with me about what I believe – you are canceled. The color of your skin is different than mine – you are canceled. I kneel only before my God – I am canceled. I am an American Patriot – I am canceled. I believe in life – I am canceled. This could go on and on, and still it makes no sense. If we are human and we claim to be civilized humans, then every person on the face of the earth has a right to his or her own opinion without being canceled by someone who thinks differently. They are just different.

Different is not bad. Musicians are different because they hear a music we cannot hear, but they share what they hear, it moves us to tears. Artists are different because they see everything through their lens of their eyes, and what beauty our eyes stare at when they make it visible to the rest of us. People in love are usually very different and when they give themselves to each other, such a magical change it makes. Different is not bad. Different is just different, and it does not mean we should fight, lie, violent protest and threaten with death others that do not see as we see or feel as we feel. What is wrong with different?

Now I know that some are going to say what about rights of others. If what I want would cause harm or death to another, I have no right to force what I believe on any other human. If what I want causes undue fear for life, causes any other human to feel belittled or shamed for the color of their skin, black or white, then what I want is not right. But here again, I believe in right and wrong, not shades of gray or that evil is good and good is evil. As humans, as Godly women, we should be able to distinguish the difference between lies and truths and see the worth of every human being in God’s eyes because in His eyes we all are the same. Jesus died for everyone on this planet because He see the worth of each and every one.

He did not cancel that one over there because they are cross-eyed. He did not cancel the other one in the corner because they have acne. He did not cancel the person down the street because they stutter. He did not cancel the person across the street because they look different. We should do the same. Reach out to the hurting and angry and frustrated and frightened and poor and rich and powerful and weak and show them respect as a human being. Maybe people have forgotten how to be kind, how to be thoughtful, how to show respect, how to honor, how to see people. If we looked into that treasure chest and saw each person as an expensive jewel, an work of art in gold or silver or precious stones, could we make a difference?

I know you and I differ on our outlooks on life because our history is different, but that does not make either of us wrong for being different nor does it give us the right to ‘cancel’ each other. I will still call you friend and I will still pray for you daily as I follow what His word teaches. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority…“1 Timothy 2:1-2

Bible reference from New International Version

Open Letter to Nancy Pelosi #3

Jun 03, 2020 · House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today that “the gift of faith tells us that we’re all God’s children.” “Now, faith is a gift, not everyone has it,” Pelosi said. “Sometimes people say to me, ‘How come you believe this or that.’ I say, ‘Well, I have the gift of faith,’” said Pelosi.

As your friend I applaud you for standing up for all of us as God’s children. In today’s world we have lost that conception that ALL of us, not just the black people, not just the Asian people, not just the white people, not just the American Indians, not all the other people that have come to America for one reason or another, WE are all God’s children. And it is a gift from God.

Anytime that we receive a gift from God, it is greatly to be appreciated and it is far above anything than we can even imagine in power and might. This gift is given to all people and manifests itself when we see that Jesus is the true Son of God. It is a treasure. I am so glad that you had the courage to come out and say, “I have the gift of faith…”

But I am a little conflicted by actions and words. Actions tell me that only certain people are important. Actions tell me that only certain agendas that require violence and death are important. Actions tell me that destruction and tearing down and rewriting history and calling all people one thing because of something that happened decades ago is OK. Actions and words are not really aligning.

Americans are one people. There is no color or creed that makes you American. Belief in justice, God, the innate goodness of people, and standing by our constitution makes you an American. It is earned by loyalty.

America was founded on the belief in freedom for all people. Blood was shed all over this land and in foreign lands to provide us with this freedom that America has right now. Enemies without and within now want her freedom killed. The blood that was shed is being stomped on and desicrated and abused and put to shame. It is this same blood that gives these people the right to protest and say we need change, so why in God’s earth are they so intent on destroying what gave them this right? I really don’t understand.

Now, friend, this is may be where you come in. You have power. That is evident. You have money. That is evident. So since you believe that we are all God’s children here in America, then maybe as a woman of the Bible once had the courage to stand up in faith and say, “If it cost me all, my people will not be destroyed and me stand by idle.” You too can stand up for all American people. Don’t let American people, God’s people, the people of faith be destroyed by hatred and bigotry and greed and power. American needs you to be a woman of faith. Our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren need you to stand on your words.

Quote from news blurb

God is Standing in the Gap

We are Christians. We are warriors. We should be strong, but there is so much fear and such anxiety that we search for a place to stand. There is no firm ground in this year of 2020. It has become quicksand for people’s faith and belief. The riots, the protests, the hatred spat across the media has no end. We have gone from murder hornets to killer worms and back again to some unknown future that is anything but bright. Will there be war? Will America die? Will churches ever be the same? What do we believe? Where is our peace? Who is in control? There is turmoil and trembling and fear. Where can we go for safety? The answer is in Psalm 91.

You can go to God Most High to hide. You can go to God All-Powerful for protection. I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in You.”

God will save you from hidden dangers and from deadly diseases. You can go to Him for protection. He will cover you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies. You can trust Him to surround and protect you like a shield.

You will have nothing to feaer at night and no need to be afraid of enemy arrows during the day. You will have no fear of diseases that come in the dark or terrible suffering that comes at noon.

A thousand people may fall dead at your side or ten thousand right beside you, but nothing will happen to you! All you will have to do is watch and you will see that the wicked are punished.

You trust in the Lord for you protection. You have made God Most High your place of safety. So nothing bad will happen to you. No diseases will come near your home. He will command his angels to protect you wherever you go.

The Lords says, “If someone trusts me, I will save them. I will protect my followers who call to me for help. When my followers call to me, I will answer them. I will be with them when they are in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. I will give my followers a long life and show them my power to save.

Trust in God. Trust in His promises. Trust in His Word.

In Christ’s love I write

Bible verses from Psalm 91 from the Easy-to-Read Version compiled by the World Bible Translation Center.

Stand in the Gap and Pray

The earth is in a world-wide struggle. We struggle and war against principalities, powers and rulers of the air. Yes, there is a war in the heavens for who will ultimately win earth forever. Yes, we can help combat the war with prayer. Prayer for our leaders. Prayer for our nation. Prayer for our friends. Prayer for ourselves. When we pray, God hears, God responds. The below scripture is Psalm 141, the Good News Translation, not in its entirety. I stand in the gap and intercede for our leaders, our country, ourselves.

I call to you, Lord; help me now! Listen to me when I call to you. Receive my prayer as incense, my uplifted hands as an evening sacrifice.

Lord, place a guard at my mouth…keep me from wanting to do wrong…may I never take part in their evil.

But I keep trusting in you, my Sovereign Lord. I seek your protection; don’t let me die! Protect me from the traps they have set for me…May the wicked fall into their own traps while I go by unharmed.

Standing in the gap is no small thing. Israel is a mirror image of our own depraved, sinful nation. We have sinned against God and against heaven, but there are those of us, those who are called by God’s name that can stand and answer.

“The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger.”

“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”

Therefore I have poured out my indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 22:29-31 NKJV

Who will stand in the gap? Will you? Will our neighbors? Will the Church? Will I stand or will I run in fear?
