We Murrays have lived here in New York since my 4th Great Grandfather Andrew Murray settled here after moving from Scotland. He enlisted and fought in Col. Van Schaick’s NY Battalion after things became unsettled under the oppressive thumb of a foreign king. Six generations of us have lived and let live since Andrew passed at the age of 66 in New Scotland up in Albany County in 1824. 195 years later, things have become unsettled again. Albany has become the monster not even our Founders or Forefathers could have imagined. Under the corrupt reign of our domestic king, Albany has devolved into a den of the most un-American vipers…the modern version of John’s men who “love darkness”.
A midnight vote…without debate…secret police…so the king could steal a $70K pay-raise for himself…here in America. This is so far beyond the “unsettled” state of Andrew Murray’s day. This is the exact evil John describes in 3:19…and growing worse by the hour!
I wrote to a dear friend mired in the grip of losing faith this past week, (Part 1) “Fear is the poison bad kings use to kill the joy and the hope of the people.” I included a poem I had come across that very same morning:
Ah, Love! could thou and I with Fate conspire
To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire!
Would not we shatter it to bits — and then
Re-mould it nearer to the Heart’s Desire! ~ Omar Khayyam’s Rubaiyat
Have we grasped this “sorry Scheme of Things entire”…entirely yet? Let me help…
“OSU is intent on silencing or driving away parents, employees or volunteers who believe that there are only two sexes, male and female, and that homosexuality and ‘transgenderism’ are inappropriate subjects for impressionable children and have nothing to do with 4-H. Indeed, interim director of Ohio 4-H, Kirk Bloir has clearly said: ‘If parents or volunteers don’t like that, then we are not the program for them,’” the report said… as Christian students are targeted at Yale in the same week:
The school will no longer provide financial support for students and graduates who work at organizations that discriminate on the basis of “sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.” ~ Yale Law School, under “pressure” from the LGBTQ Outlaws
Also, in the same week:
“I chose to kill that young man because he looked happy. And I couldn’t stand his happiness,” ~ Said Machaouat, The Muslim killer of Stefano Leo
Where this is all going:
Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They
were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping
the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. ~ Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, under his pen name “Psychedelic Warlord”
The same Puppet Master behind the bad king in Albany, pulling the strings of OSU and the Yale Outlaws, is the very same one pulling the strings of Said Machaouat and Beto O’Rourke.
And what, you might ask, do all these puppets have in common?
Diabolical Narcissists are “people who freely choose to purge all love from their souls. All that remains after the purgation of love from the soul is an emotional palette of ANGER, HATRED, JEALOUSY and FEAR. Diabolical Narcissists’ fuel, just as with the demons they emulate, is SPITE.” ~ Ann Barnhardt
Is it any wonder that we Christians are the #1 target of all DN’s and their Puppet Master? How do we answer this evil? How do we live with the misery-loves-company-crowd who live to devour our souls? Judging by what I see when I look 360 degrees around me, it would seem the answer for most people is to ignore, pretend, and not nearly enough…pray the evil away.
Surely, we can be honest enough with ourselves to see there is a comfort and convenience for us in the ignore-pretend-pray model by letting God do the heavy lifting. Nice…no conflict…head down…eyes straight…mouth shut. To you I say, have a little Revelation 3:16 ~ So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
I went to see the pro-life movie “Unplanned” on Friday. I urge you to take a pro-choice friend, and/or ideally…a young women faced with the decision. There was a scene in the beginning that modeled God’s instruction to us of how to stand and fight. The movie depicts two unrelated groups of protesters outside the Texas Planned Parenthood Clinic; the angry anti-abortion group, and the loving pro-life group. My Bible (Revised Standard Edition) contains 66 books on 981 pages. On Thursday night, our pastor led our men’s bible study into a discussion on God’s instruction in 2 Chronicles 7:13,14 with the open-ended question. “Why is our world so messed up?” On the very next day, I hear the exact same scripture passage movingly recited by one of the young actors on the big screen as part of the conclusion in the movie “Unplanned”. Someone, please calculate the odds…
When I shut up the heavens so there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name (Christians) humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:13,14
(Part 2) It broke my heart to hear you losing “hope” my friend. Especially since I see in you the very heart of goodness, love, and beauty the bad king wants to kill.
We are here and now, in a time and place more troubling than even our fathers’ fathers knew. They are literally coming for our children. One of us has to die. If you look carefully, and choose wisely, you can already tell which one of us this will be.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9
