When leaders abandon righteousness, exchanging it for the law of sin- that nation, hypocritically appealing to God, will neither stand in the place of blessing, nor be spared from the judgment of God. But those who trust in the Lord, who surrender their hearts at His throne, will step through the fire, refined, and walk where no man nor woman can stop them, for the Lord is the One who gives the blessing, not some man or woman.
Those who do not seek God, who cling to The Hope, who worship at the Idol of a man or image built on lies and deception, who relish in his skin color-will sing a song of want, of lack, and of defeat- in the end.
I can hear that “o’ gospel song,” singin’ loud and clear across the land…from the sofas of people collectin’ big checks from the government while those caught on welfare try to escape the trap…while the greedy get richer and the average citizen struggles to keep from falling through the cracks…while the chorus of deceitfulness slams smut across the front of our monitors…small devices…and even the very institutions claiming to promote peace and goodwill toward men and women…
…and still, the simpleheaded sing…
The Prez is my shepherd,
I shall always be in want.
He maketh me to lie down on filthy sheets
He leadeth me beside crumbling streets
He restoreth my soup kitchen bowl.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of fear
Thou art with me.
Thy spies and thy staff they stalk me.
Surely wickedness and depression shall follow me
all the days of thy reign…
and I shall live forever
in the house on the hill…
with no care,
and no future.
The time to wake up is now…you’ve been conned.
