In Which We Live!
The Weight of Generations To Consider
Growing up in the 50’s, I had the blessing of being raised in a whole different culture then we are experiencing today. The mindsets were different, and family was solid and cohesive. Everything revolved around family. We ate together, we partied together, we cried together, mourned together… I knew my family from generation to generation. Through this communion of family I learned respect for my elders, and they loved to pass their wisdom and stories on to my generation. Older cousins, and youthful relatives grew up together, sharing a bond of fellowship that still works today, many years later. It was important to leave a legacy… passing on from generation to generation. Mothers passed on recipes, jewelry, pots, furniture, pictures and how to keep the home. Fathers gave wisdom, shared instruction on how fix, fish, hunt… and shared their passions for sports, and hobbies. Mom stayed home, and Dad was the bread winner.
Everybody desired more for their generations than they themselves had. There was a desire to preserve and protect, so that the next and following generations would live better than the preceding one. But, somewhere along the line America has lost these important cultural traits. We have become the “Me” generation, leaving no thought for what will become of our generations to follow. Selfish desires have outweighed what would be good for the next generation. What legacy are we leaving to our children or children’s children?
While we have been busy making a comfortable place for our generations, we have lost the real legacies of generations. God is a God of generations. Every example of Biblical instruction leads us to understand we have the job to preserve the next and ensuing generations. When we forget, there are great consequences that will follow. Right from the 3rd chapter of Genesis, Adam and Eve gave up their generational covering by forgetting who held the power of generations. To enrich themselves, they gave up the blessings of God, and have caused sin to dwell in their generations to this very day. When we give up the land, then the devil will take possession. Demons rule by ruling the land. Ephesians chapter 6 tells us about rulers, and powers and principalities of spiritual darkness. In Daniel, the archangel Gabriel had to summon the warrior angel Michael to battle the prince of Persia so he could get through to Daniel to bring the prophetic word.
All through history we see how lands are taken over by governmental forces that oppress and dominate the people living in the land.
Israel had to win both in the spirit and in the natural to regain the land to maintain their heritage. When they were defeated spiritually, they lost the land and so lost their voice. The consequences have always fallen on the generations that followed.
The Russians had a choice… they chose Lenin… Germany had a choice… they chose Hitler… Cuba had a choice… they chose Castro… Venezuela had a choice … they chose Chåvez… All have sold their generations into bondage. These godless politicians robbed the culture of God, and sold the people into a bondage of slavery to the system. The list is endless…. The land is the key. If the devil can possess the land, he can possess the people.
Let’s look further at this. The devil cannot possess people that easily. Those who give themselves over, can be possessed…. but that’s not usual. He can possess land and occupy land, then he rules by oppression. When evil besets the people, it becomes much harder to win them back. Look carefully how much our inner cities have been beset with poverty, drugs, crime, depression and broken families. Those areas are much harder to win back. Consequently, generations have been lost under the rule of these evil politicians, because they are controlled by rulers and powers. If we look at the governmental oversight in those areas, they are oppressive, manipulative and controlling. The system of corrupt politics works to keep those people in the grip of neediness, rather than being productive and self-fulfilled. People have sold their heritage into generations of poverty and pain by choosing poorly in their politics. They bought the lie of self, rather than freedom of truth.
Joshua said it best, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” and then he went out and took the land. We, as Christians, have a great responsibility to take the land, and keep the land. Israel failed to keep their land, and has spent 2,000 years trying to get it back. It has been at a great cost, accompanied by much pain and generations of death. That has been the legacy of the Jewish people. When an opportunity for freedom came to Israel, their leaders said, “We serve no one but Caesar. ” They made a poor choice, choosing man over God.
We are at a major crossroads in America. We made a poor choice of Presidential vision in 2008, and then we failed again in 2012. There was a chance to do something different in 2012… but millions of Christians stayed home, because a Mormon was running. In America, it’s more than the man, it’s the vision of the party that is maybe more important. We forfeited then what is ours by inheritance through Christ. Spiritually and politically, we are now in a more weakened state. All around us the giants are possessing the land. They have taken the high ground. They seem bigger than us…they may even be more than us. Some of us have looked and surveyed the land, and have come back with bad reports. But we can not give up the land of America. We are going to have to push back… now! There may be no 2020 election to try to do this again. If we lose…the demons will have possessed the land, and oppression will be everywhere. Our generations are at stake. My children…. your children… and grand children… and families are depending on us to hold the line. We are at the Battle of the Bulge for America. It’s 2016 or maybe never.
Giants are at the gates. They control all the mountains of power: Government, Finances, Arts & Entertainment, Education, Media… they continue to tear down Family… and want the power of Religion very badly. Once their political system is in place, there will be no turning back. They will possess it all! Power brokers like the Clintons, Obama, Rockefeller, Soros… and many more, desperately want to dominate everything. The devil knows whoever controls the political power mountain will ultimately control all the mountains. But God is exposing the hidden corrupt nature of our government.
I am now convinced that only Trump, out of the 16 Republican candidates, could have survived the onslaught of what the Clinton/Obama/Soros evil trinity would unleash on the final Republican candidate. God is giving us a chance… and this is our third chance … After this… I don’t know what will happen. We may not have elections in 2020…. They will go after the Church, our freedom of speech… our 2nd Amendment… our courts… what media we have left… what schools we have left… what family we have left.
They will own ALL THE MARBLES… ALL THE MOUNTAINS. And, the rest of the world will say, “where is your God?” We are known as the Christian nation. No other nation holds that precious title. If America goes, there are no more “Christian Nations.” There are none in Europe anymore, no one else in North or South America… None in Asia… None in Africa. Yes, there are Christians… but they are not known as Christian Nations. We hold that honor. Why do you think we are under such an onslaught?
Christians hold the key to preserving America in the face of the greatest attack on our culture. Why is immigration so important? Here’s why… The globalists want to dominate the land. They want to do this by importing thousands of people who do not reflect our culture and heritage. This would be like Israel letting the Philistines and Canaanites into their country. Are you ready to do this?
Obama/Clinton are looking to import thousands of MALE MUSLIMS. They do not want to integrate, they want to dominate. If we don’t close our borders, we will be doomed. Notice, these refugees are mostly male… not families… not those who want to become Americans… they are people who want us to become a Muslim nation, not a Christian Nation. Are you willing to give that up? Are you willing to turn over this nation to political and cultural ideologies that are evil, anti-semetic… anti-Christian… anti-family… anti-black… anti everything you hold dear? Are you willing to sell your children into financial and cultural and religious bondage? Do you care about your generations?
There are only two Choices in November… Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. We have to bring this nation back to its roots. We have to fight to keep the land, and preserve our heritage so we can pass on our culture to our generations.
Gary Johnson is not an option… He is Pro-Choice… Anti-2nd Amendment… Pro-drug legalization … Pro-prisoner release… Pro-TPP…. Pro-immigration… He is not an option… and certainly a vote for him is vote for Hillary… No Vote is also a vote for Clinton… and here we are, back to selling out our generations. Debt, Abortion… LBT rights… further reductions in military…. and selling out to Globalization.
Trump… pro-family… anti-common core… pro-2nd Amendment… anti-big government… pro-faith… We can rebuild under Trump… We can maintain the land… and we can preserve our heritage, to fight and take back more land.
Jesus is obviously the ultimate answer. No politician can do what God can do… but our ability to further the cause of Christ, here and abroad will be much stronger under Trump, than any other option.
Pray… Win souls for Christ… and Vote.
Every vote is important… If Christians stay home, like they did in the past… or sell out to a 3rd-party-do-nothing candidate… We will forfeit America and all we stand for to demonic influence. There are no choices. We have to do this. May America Bless God, Again.
