GOP: HIDING BEHIND GOD

In truth, for all of the GOP’s religious posturing, they do not believe the Word of God. Their politics and policies are the antithesis of Christian doctrine. Since when have the Catholics been the sole driving force of God’s wisdom and the depository of knowledge? A very limited theological understanding is on display from alleged “Catholics” in the Congress, Senate, Fox news and Right wing talk shows. It is an abomination to despise the poor, afflicted, sick, elderly and the least among us. It shows an flagrant lack of charity. The apostle Paul states that the greatest virtue is charity. “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” Ist Corintihians 13:1   “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son…”  This is because God is love.

What is on display is “another gospel” being preached. It has no value or virtue. It is devoid of power. It shall not be allowed to prevail. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7 The sowing of fraud in the name of God shall not go unpunished. Do these deceivers think that God is sleeping?  “Behold He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 121:4  The very thing to which the GOP have committed themselves will turn upon them and devour them. 

Their money shall not buy them the White House, for their purpose is power for the sake of power and not for the good of the people they claim to represent. They do not offer a vision of justice or unity. The have no vision.  “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased in goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind and naked:…” Revelations 3:17  Misrepresenting God is an offense for the which judgement must be administered.   Do not be angry or dismissive of the true Word of God you claim your policies are based upon.  Obey the Word of God and turn from the propagation of a false gospel or stop hiding behind God while you violate His Word. The choice and the judgement that follows is yours.

THE PALINITES

The Palinites came from far and wide
to anoint their Northern queen and
sit her upon a throne of great power.

She left the Northern lights and fled
into the desert. There she lived like
a queen; lavishly. Far from the poor.

She was anointed the standard bearer
of a truth that neither pitied the poor
nor visited the widow. There was no
compassion for those appointed to die.

She charged much gold for others to
behold her and to be in her presence.
She preached the gospel of Sarah. She
peverted the true gospel of good news.

She prepared her caravan. Pomp and
ceremony went before her coronation.
The Palinites waved their fronds bowing
at her display of great wealth and power.

She chose as her crown rare, costly jewels.
Our Savior wore a painful crown of thorns.

The Lord has not blessed her coronation…

GOP DIABOLICS IN PLAY

Photography by Stony River/AU

The GOP fueled by the erratic Tea Party rose to power in 2010 based on
repetitious lies. The promises that they said were their priorities were fictitious.
They swept in countless GOP governors to do the work of taking away rights, services
& sustenance to the families over the which they exerted control in a plethera of states.

In a bizarre campaign promise contradiction, they led with their social agenda. Trying
to destroy unions, women’s rights & college education. All of this done in the name of
Christian values. They are false Christians, not having understood the Beatitudes.

They are so full of hate for President Obama that they have sold their souls in the hating.
It is written, “But he that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness and
knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness has blinded his eyes.” I John 1:11

Imagine denying a woman the right to choose, forcing her to have a baby, then denying
her the assistance she may need to feed and provide for her child. This will happen if GOP
governors are given “block medicaid funds.” Corrupt governors will just give the money to
their rich donors. How will these children of “rape & incest’ be fed?

Imagine the super rich fortified in their mansions with an arsenal of weapons to shoot any
hungry, roaming masses that have become their victims. Shall we see massive death in
America? Shall we see the middle class homeless? Shall we witness snipers in the ivory
towers of the rich shooting down hungry protesting people? The GOP/Tea Party future
for America is sick and dark.

How long shall the blinded stay blind? How long shall the racist hate, voting against his
own interest? What baby boomer does not have elderly parents on medicare, in assisted
living or nursing homes? These middle-agers will have to pay for the medical care of their
parents who have paid into the social security system their whole lives & got cheated
on medicare to give tax breaks to the rich.

Be afraid. Be very afraid if the GOP have their way. Children, women of reproductive age,
college students, baby boomers & the elderly have to let go of their “fear of a black man”
and begin to see the alternative for what it is: guaranted increase in income for the rich and
for the politicians that make it possible. Heaven help us all, for despair & death is on the
doorstep in America.

PROPHECY: ENOUGH ROPE TO HANG THEMSELVES

It is almost time for the pendulum to swing again. When it does, the Republican/Conservative/Tea Party Movement will start to pay for their deeds of treating the first black President of the United States as a leper. They will pay for treating Hispanics and Muslims as lepers. They will pay for treating the despised, disenfranchised, dispossessed and poor as lepers.( Proverbs Ch 22 vs 16.) Their actions have nothing to do with God. (Isaiah 58 vs 6,7) Who would want to serve their Christian God? They have become a stumbling block for the gospel of Jesus Christ. They have kept countless thousands of people from experiencing a personal relationship with God. If they knew God at all, they would know that it is His express desire that all men would come to dwell with Him.

They have used God’s name as a shield to cloak their hideousness. They will pay dearly for these things; to start shortly but continue until Divine Justice has been satisfied. They created the rope and the gallows to hang others. Upon this same rope and gallows, they themselves, will be hung. They are the spiritual Hamans of our day. They plot for position and power, but are not sanctioned by God.( Esther Ch 7 vs 10.) Proverbs ch.16 vs 25 says that, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

God has heard the imprecatory prayers against the President. He has seen these same people sit in the pews where their pastors preached hate. He has heard their plans and conspiracies-not for what is righteous-but for earthly power. He has heard their racial slurs. He has seen their secret lives. He has seen their love of money. He has seen money change hands in order for the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. He has seen all the children of color upon the earth maligned. Did He not make all men? These afronts come before Him in the prayers of the needy, not the greedy. He had given those with dirty hands, a season to repent of their hatred towards their fellow human beings. They have not repented. He has spoken. The destroying angel has been dispatched and has marked those to be destroyed in God’s wrath. Watch, therefore, and see what the Lord will do.

THE REPUBLICAN CONFEDERACY CONFLAGRATION

What would the Republican Confederacy do without President Obama to demonize? What would they do without the Administration to castigate? What would they do without Pelosi or Reed? Nothing. They’ve got nothing. They worship at the altar of Ronald Regan’s economic vision. This is a vision which builds up the rich and creates more poor. They feign a sincere concern for the budget, but when it is time for a remedy, they reject the solution in lock-step fashion.

I propose to you that this anti-everything Obama is a ruse to deceive the people. Who made the second Amendment one of God’s ten commandments? They have taken the word of God and perverted it. They have not, “…loved their neighbor as they have loved themselves…” The Word of God says, “…those that live by the sword shall die by the sword…” Is that why there are so many militia in the name of God?  To the end that they themselves perish with the weapons of their choice?  They mask the Word of God with bigotry, while in truth,  it is the wealthy who fuel their outcries of, “steal, killl and destroy…anything Obama”  They have not known the love of God.

They de-legitimized Africans, forcibly removed from their lands, by calling them 3/5 of a person. This means even with the forced slavery of Africans, slave-owners could sleep at night. After all, slaves were not quite human. The Republican Confederacy has done everything within its power to de-legitimize President Obama. The Birthers… Believe me, had there been concrete evidence to the assertion that he was not born in America, everyone would know it. The lawsuits of Orly Taitz (with a thick immigrant accent) would not have been tossed out as frivilous. The state of Hawaii would have acknowledged that the President was not eligible for office. Why do the conspiratists insist that everyone is hiding the truth? The reason is that they have been lied to themselves. They are lied to everytime their faces are glued to Fox news. The lies are untruths mingled with some truth. This is mind control at its finest.  Some truth and then the lies. All will be received as truth. This truth has the capacity to destroy whomever, whatever.

Manifest Destiny helped Europeans steal, kill and destroy Native Americans: it was their God-given right to take whatever they wanted because the “red-skins” were heathens. The Native Americans were de-legitimized in this instance, as well. Believe me when I say that Apache curses still haunt Arizona. It is the bankruptcy state. There remains a glass ceiling. Most people make their money from elsewhere and spend it in their vacation/retirement in Arizona. Arizona itself is akin to the mythological Sisyphus who was punished by Zeus (due to his hubristic belief in his own cleverness) to push a boulder up a hill only to have it roll back down again. This eternity resulted from audacity.

Several months prior to The Battle Of The Alamo (Feb 23rd-March 6, 1836) Texans had driven all Mexicans out of Mexican Texas. Between 1821 and 1836 Texas had been governed by Mexico. Many of the Anglo-American settlers owned slaves. Mexican’s President Anastasio Bustamante ordered all slaves to be freed by 1830. In order to get around this law, many Anglos made their slaves indentured servants for life. By the year 1836, there were 5000 slaves in Texas. In 1830, Bustamante also outlawed immigration of the United States to Texas. In a convention of 1832, angry colonists started the protest with the intent that U.S. Citizens be allowed to immigrate.

 Although Mexico enacted laws to monitor immigration of U.S. citizenry to Mexico; violence ensued by virtue of a revolt against Mexican jurisdiction.  March 2, 1836, Texans signed the Texan Declaration of Independence. On April 21, 1936, the Texas Revolution ended with the capture of the Mexican leader Santa Ana. Then Texans (U.S. immigrants)  called the freshly stolen land, the Republic Of  Texas. Mexico refused to acknowledge its independence. The purpose of the mini- history lesson is to highlight the absurdity of the signs and the people who say, ” we want our country back.”  America is a stolen country. It is an epic tale of immigration. Now, border states cry and groan over illegal immigrants. No wonder history books will be re-written in Texas. The truth remains stained with blood, at best.

These outburts from the Tea party Movement, Conservatives and their prisoners; the Republicans are a smoke-screen for bigotry and separatism. It is a travesty both morally and spiritually. I suggest that those holding up the degrading signs of President Obama take the time to read the Bible and understand that God is NOT with them on this one. He hears the cries of the homeless, hopeless, hungry, sick and disposessed. He does not violate His word for the convenience of those who worship their guns. “…God is nigh unto the broken-hearted…”  I dare one of the tea party people to ask to sit at the table of the leader of one of their movements. To have a cup of tea. While there, if you ever get in, look around you. Their house will  look nothing like yours. Their lifetyle will not look anything like yours. Their motives are nothing like yours. See for yourselves. You have been duped by big money, afterall the rich must get richer no matter what. Regurtigate the lies spun by Fox and friends, separate yourselves from the hundreds of conspiracies out there that defame an Administration which was mired in Republican muck from day one. Think for yourselves. Let me see: Palin is rich, Limbaugh is rich, Beck is rich, O’Reilly is rich, Hannity is rich. For all of your defaming and sign carrying, are you rich too?

THE GREAT LAND GRAB

Who shall inherit the earth, where you have planted
your flowers and built your fences?

Whose bones are buried beneath your feet, although
unmarked, and un-flowered?

Do you suppose borders shall stop the progeny from
returning to the place of ancestors?

Who is now screaming about whose land is whose?
Where are the bones of your forefathers? 

That is your land; the land of your people.

No borders, laws, or penalties shall stop the trail of tears,
DNA leading to the homeland.

Why the flawed measures, the detention centers?
 
Why the table pounding? Don’t you  know that those
who pound the loudest are not the rightful owners?

Re-written books and  re-staged events attempt
 to” legitimize” what was and remains

the great land grab; a Manifest Destiny of annihilation.

It is all too convenient,  too flawed. Who will jump upon their

soap-boxes, filibuster immigration issues,

who will shoot with rubber bullets, and tow away the cars

of protesters? There are many,  but “…The earth is the Lord’s and
the fullness thereof…”

There are no absolutes, here,
since the Statue of Liberty was given the toss.

 As I sit upon my newly purchased plot of land, I know
 although it is not a bridge or highway, eminent domain

gave builders the right  to sell it to me. 
The previous owners, along with those before them,

cry out  from the ground; bloody and plundered.

Justifications fictionalize and fears mount. How will
we feed OUR children?  Not enough care was

given to the feeding of our neighbor’s children.
How then, do we expect to reap a harvest of food?

How do we expect to reap a harvest of righteousness?

WOE BE UNTO FALSE PROPHETS

There is a disturbing phenomenon taking place within the Church. It is the turning of true prophets into prophets of Baalim. This simply means that tried and true prophets are being seduced into using the anointing upon their lives to speak things that God has not told them to speak.  The lure is mammon; ‘filthy lucre.’  An entire ministry of integrity can be destroyed by stepping out of God’s instruction.  The penalty is instant judgement which will result in death to such a prophet. Yes, there are false prophets, but there are also true prophets who are ‘turning’ because they are lured out into the rocks of recognition. Ezekiel ch 22 vs.28 says it best, “…They say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says’–when the LORD has not spoken…” NIV.

The same Church which sat upon their hands in their pews now embraces deadly spiritual warfare in order to KILL people who do not share their ideological or religious point of view? What did Jesus ever do to make the Church think that it was their job to be “armed and dangerous?” Remember when guards came to take Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, Peter cut off the ear of one of the guards. It was Jesus HIMSELF who put the ear back on the guard and healed the wound. In Jesus’ time, there were those who thought that they were to take up arms ( with Jesus as their king) to overthrow the Romans. When He did not engage in violence, many were offended in Him.The Father’s plan was so much greater than this.  So, it is today. The many who follow the few do not know the Word of God. They do not know that everything in the Book is for instruction and reproof. Every accounting, every story every type & shadow is to the end that we might know Him. Why are there so many false notions about what it means to be a Christian?  

Christ never deputized the Church to be “armed and dangerous” save for the knowledge of  His Words. Why is there so much fear? The Word says. “…the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, even as the rivers of waters, He turneth it wheresoever He wills.” Why is there no trust in God, today? Those who feel that they have to take up arms should not use the name of Jesus in order to do it. They would be dead wrong. Everything they attempt would fail. How could it be otherwise lest they lead many astray?  Why are right-wing politicians trying to use prophets to curse what God has blessed? They and their prophets do so at their own peril. There will be  an implosion from combining what is Holy and what is profane.
