"They make ready their tongue like a bow, to shoot lies; it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. The go from one sin to another; they do not acknowledge me," declares the Lord. ~Jeremiah 9:3
Jeremiah was a prophet; he's a good friend of mine. I listen today to all the words he said, and he surely defines these times. Yes, he surely defines these times. ~Brazenly and unabashedly adapted from Three Dog Night's Joy to the World
Jeremiah didn't name it as such, but this prophet saw it coming.
Lies couched in innocuous language. Deceit lying in wait, ready to pounce upon the unsuspecting.
Truth? It is only in the ears and eyes of the elite, who promulgate hatred, division, strife, and derision toward anyone who disagrees with their pounding and relentless message that America is NOT the shining city on a hill. It is, instead, a cesspool of racism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. And the guilty? Those deplorables who cling to their guns and religion, and believe in America as founded.
So, what's wrong, I ask, with believing in the first and second amendments of our Constitution? These are God given rights that our founding documents declare government cannot infringe upon or deny. Why are so many, then, striving to cancel our inalienable rights under God?
In a word, they are jealous. Envious of the power over the people of these United States that they cannot ultimately control, but will pull out all the stops to try and do just that. And it is power and greed that motivate every legislative move they make.
They have removed God, the Sovereign Lord, from the public square.
As House Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) recently declared, "God's will is no concern of this Congress."
"They go from one sin to another and do not acknowledge me."
What we witness happening in our nation is a complete disregard for the will of the American people, their protection from foreign influence, their God-given rights to worship as they choose, and the heart-stopping realization that election reform and integrity are long overdue.
Jeremiah is calling us once again to name those who would pervert and disdain God's will and hope for these United States of America. Let us pray that the Lord would silence their lying tongues and allow the truth of God to triumph in this blessed land once again.
