I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.
– Ronald Reagan

The Rev. Franklin Graham said Saturday that President Donald Trump has been right on many issues about how he has been treated during his presidency, and when he says the election was rigged or stolen, “I tend to believe him.”
“The President has been maligned, falsely accused, and attacked on every front since before the election in 2016,” Graham posted on his Facebook page. “When President Trump says that this election has been rigged or stolen, I tend to believe him. He has a track record of being right.”
Graham commented that in 2016, when Trump told Americans the government was spying on him, “the media said that he was paranoid.”
“The Obama administration and the Democrats said that this was an absolute lie and that Donald Trump was not fit to be president, only for us to find out later that the U.S. government did spy on Donald Trump, and what he had said was in fact true,” said Graham.
Then, for the next two years, Trump was under investigation for collusion with the Russians, but even though he said there was no collusion, “the media and the Democrats” said there was.
“After an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it turned out to be false — there was no collusion,” said Graham. “President Trump was right again. Then the Democrats impeached him over a phone call.”
He concluded his message by asking for prayers for Trump, Joe Biden, and the nation “that we will get through this, and for God’s will to be done.”
So, do you believe that America is a prize being fought for between the forces of Good and EVil?
Then you haven’t been paying attention.
Former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang caused Twitter to explode earlier today when he suggested that Americans should show proof that they’ve been vaccinated against the China Virus.
“Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated – like a bar code they can download to their phone,” he asked. “There ought to be.”
He added that it’s “[t]ough to have mass gatherings like concerts or ballgames without either mass adoption of the vaccine or a means of signaling.”
Yang is not the first to call for some type of verification system for vaccinated individuals.
Of course, many states have already set up registries and databases to keep track of those who have taken the vaccine.
USA Today reports every state with the exception of New Hampshire and some larger municipalities like New York City and Philadelphia operate an immunization registry.
Yang’s suggestion drew controversy on Twitter with some saying it sounded like the biblical Mark of the Beast or something from 1930s Germany.
“This is Nazi talk Andrew,” wrote director Robby Starbuck, while someone else added sarcastically, “How about yellow star attached to our shirts?”
11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.- Revelation 13:11-17
It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.
Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.
From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.
Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, if the Far Left Democrats have their way, so it would lead to America’s downfall.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Marxists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary (those of us who still get to g and are not “quarantined” at home).
“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”
Because believe me, Americans…we are in one.
Pray for our President.
Pray for our country.
And, “rage against the dying of the light”.
Until He Comes,
