I don’t know if you are aware of it or not but America is in the midst of the greatest landslide in history. The seismic shift I am referring to has nothing to do with election totals or opinion polls, but rather a culmination of events that will forever alter the lay of the land. It is time to buckle up.
So much of our lives are programmed by others. It is subtle, but a quick glance over your shoulder will confirm what you are about to read. People are finally beginning to awaken from a self-induced slumber after generations of permitting others to make their life choices for them. Both the sheep and the goats have been imprisoned by their desire to be led.
From the school house to the church house Americans have forgotten how to think for themselves. Hitler is reported to have said “tell a lie long enough and loud enough and it will eventually become the Truth.”
For over twenty years I have been awake to the lie that there are two political parties operating in Washington. Their entire plan has been to convince you that there are two sides to every issue and one of the parties is on your side and the other side is the enemy.
Two legs of the same bug is the way I described it back in 2008. It would be worth your time to read this prescient article.
Jesus came into my life in 1988. He changed everything about me. I know what a wretch I was and what a wretch I could be today if it were not for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. I know, even today, what evil I am capable of in the darkness of my fleshly heart.
Some of you know what I mean, some of you have no clue what I am referring to. That is the great divide: redeemed and not redeemed…not Republican and Democrat.
Imagine you are elected to Congress with a very weak moral compass. Imagine the frills and benefits that accompany that position. Imagine how hard it would be to keep your nose clean. Imagine how hard it would be if you were part of the protected class and that your debauchery would never be in danger of exposure. Imagine you had friends in high places in the Justice Department who would be willing to overlook your foibles. Imagine it didn’t matter what political party you were a part of because it was all one big club.
Imagine an outsider gets elected and an upsetting of the apple cart.
The apple cart is about to be rolled over and we will see the folly of the two-party system. Things are going to get messy. The Swamp will not go quietly. To paraphrase my brother, Donald Trump ain’t no saint. Will God’s team be ready to pick up the pieces?
It is time to buckle up.
