Jesus said to "Watch and pray" (Matt. 26:41a). God told Ezekiel to be a "watchman" (Ezek. 3:17b). Scripture warns us to watch out for "the trickery of men, by craftiness with deceitful scheming" (Eph. 4:14).
This really is a red alert emergency, and time is running out. Controlling the presidency, House and Senate, the radical leftist Democrats are acting swiftly with their first bill, H.R.1, deceptively called "For the People Act," which should be renamed "For the Corrupt Politicians Act."
Contrary to our Constitution, this legislation takes away every state's right to govern/regulate elections by basically giving the reins to Nancy Pelosi. It overrides every state's rules and reverses over 100 years of the secret ballot. What is hidden in this 800-page monstrosity (already passed by the House) makes it easy to cheat and eliminate the speech of anyone objecting.
Democrat extremists want to ensure one party rule as in communist countries through this cleverly designed strategy wherein one can't question the eligibility of any voters or enforce our laws. Marvin Gaye once sang, "What's goin' on?" and Alexander Hamilton would join him on stage as leftists trash our Constitution and the integrity of fair and free elections. Hamilton famously said, "If it be asked, what is the most sacred duty and greatest source of our security in our republic, the answer would be, an inviolable respect for our Constitution and laws."
How is This Happening?
Ask yourself, "Did strange and mysterious things happen in the 2020 election?" Did Democrat-run cities enforce the law during racial riots in 2020? How about blatant disregard for immigration laws in their so-called "sanctuary cities?"
Jesus warned that lawlessness would increase at the end of the age (Matt. 24:12). When anti-God, anti-marriage, anti-family, anti-sanctity of life politicians gain office in large part because of pastors' cowardice and subsequent people's passivity, should we be surprised? Many of these leftist politicians are power-hungry, hypocritical and have no moral code.
Their ambition is to tear down traditional America established upon Judeo-Christian principles and replace it with their socialist model. The destruction and devastation they bring to America is reprehensible. What we're seeing with the chaotic situation on the southern border is tragic and Mr. Trump nailed it: "Biden turned a national triumph into a national disgrace."
Manipulating the Masses
Democrat strategists working in lockstep with the mainstream media perpetuate lies like, "Republicans make voting difficult because they are racist" ... "These white supremacists are calloused toward the poor and minorities who struggle to get to polls" ... "Republican fat cats want to purge voter rolls" ... "All the unnecessary requirements and restrictions suppress voter turnout" ... "All this nonsense about voter fraud doesn't exist"... "Stand for social justice!"
Recently CNN's Jake Tapper, a Democrat activist (like ABC's George Stephanopoulos), propagandizing gullible and uninformed viewers with numerous lies. Read for yourself recent articles in the Epoch Times about repeated, verified reports on voter fraud in cities. Or watch Tapper or anybody try to enter the CNN building without proper identification and a required badge.
Check out how strict the Democrat party is in protecting Gavin Newsom in his recall election currently underway. Everything they screamed about as legitimate in the 2020 election is off-limits when it comes to one of their own.
A Refresher on Election Integrity
Over the past century numerous measures were put in place as safeguards against fraud and to protect election integrity. Then unscrupulous leaders, capitalizing on the COVID crisis, upended voting historically conducted in a lawful and orderly manner.
My dad and mom didn't have much. Dad never finished high school and was a custodian while mom scrubbed floors on her knees three days a week despite a severe disability. We had no automobile, yet they never made excuses about voting, instilling in me deep respect for the process. They were patriotic citizens (who previously voted Democrat) and joyfully volunteered to serve in the nearby voting precinct.
All citizens registered to vote, went to polling places usually 10 to 15 minutes away (rides could be arranged if there was a need). Voters stood in line usually 10 to 20 minutes, showed IDs while workers checked the precinct book to verify information. Voters were given a ballot, proceeded to the secure section to privately vote, deposit the ballot into a lock box then proudly receive an "I Voted" sticker to return home or back to work.
Did it take a little time and effort? Of course. But when you think about the precious freedoms we enjoy and all those who sacrificed their lives or were disabled in wars to protect and preserve our freedoms, we should be thankful to God for what we have. Is it right to simply enjoy these freedoms yet give nothing back to our nation in return?
My dad served in World War II as part of "The Greatest Generation," and my aunt returned from the war so traumatized that she spent almost all her days in an institution.
How about the brave people in law enforcement and fire departments who risk their lives daily, most making modest pay, and upon leaving in the morning don't know if they'll return home that night. Think also of the disrespect, defiance and abuse they encounter. And how about the the magnificent souls serving in the medical realm on the front lines caring for us and our families? It would do us well to reflect on the words Lincoln said concluding his Gettysburg Address in 1863 as he looked out on the battlefield where 6,650 soldiers died and almost 30,000 were wounded.
"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
We all have a moral obligation as Christian citizens to be "salt" as Jesus instructed. May we hold back decay as we pray for our leaders, respect law enforcement and veterans, stay informed and carry out the stewardship God entrusted to us in a democracy by voting and not complaining.
Stop H.R.1—The Misnamed Monstrosity
While maintaining legitimate provisions for handicapped and out of country/overseas citizens through absentee ballots, I appeal to you to immediately contact your senators to tell them to vote no on this deceptive bill which would institutionalize fraud, advance a massive influx of ever dependent Democrat voters and guarantee control of America by one radical party for our future.
— Reject the notion that going to vote is too hard; unfair to minorities because they lack abilities, transportation, a driver's license or proper ID; it's too expensive (states give free IDs!) or voting requirements reflect "systemic racism" and "social injustice" by "white supremacists." This is race-baiting and must stop.
— Reject the idea that there does not need to be specific voter ID and signature verification; ballots should be mailed out to all people in spite of lists containing deceased and relocated individuals; mail-in voting be the practice nationwide; votes allowed to be tabulated for weeks; include illegal immigrants, 16-year-olds and felons in prison with voting rights; make provisions for multiple registrations; permit harvesting of ballots being collected in neighborhoods (telling people how to vote) then brought unmonitored in baskets to precincts.
— Reject undermining our Constitution by overriding every state's role in governing elections plus granting people the ability to walk into any polling place with no ID and be able to make up a name that cannot be challenged then vote.
Here's the Deal: God directs us to be faithful with our stewardship responsibilities which include exposing deceitful schemes and corrupt practices by radical leftists. "If we don't vote, we are ignoring history and giving away the future." If we don't stop this kind of deception, then our future and that of our children and grandchildren will be a disaster. We must never let this happen! Contact your senators today.
