But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. (Jude 20-21 ESV)
The Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation was the most vile, divisive, uncivil, immoral, unethical display of scorched-earth politics witnessed by Americans in recent history. No matter how much the Democratic Party tries to hang on its opponents for confirming Kavanaugh, there is nothing that excuses the shameful behavior of Democrats and their supporting cast of leftists, communists and anarchists. All the deeds they accused the conservatives of doing—lying, violence, harassment, bullying, victimization, hypocrisy—they themselves put on full display before the world. The poster child moment was crazed women clawing and banging on the Supreme Court doors during the swearing in ceremony.
What is this all about? Folks, we have to discern. It was not about abortion, race, religion, or LGBTQ rights. Those were only the fear issues that the puppeteers used to cobble together a coalition of useful pawns that could be whipped up into a frenzy or paid to act out on cue. The real issue here is the communist revolution to overthrow the Constitutional Republic of the United States. It had progressed quite well over the years with only a road bump during the Reagan years. Before that, and afterwards, it’s been an easy and gradual slide into socialism. Socialists have embedded in all aspects of the government awaiting their complete takeover, which was supposed to be crowned with Hillary Clinton’s coronation.
When that didn’t happen, Americans had to pay the price. A “resistance” movement began. It became very aggressive, and at times, violent. We have not seen the peak yet. The Kavanaugh confirmation has only exposed it further. The prophetic fallout from Kavanaugh is this: Expect further division, more bullying, extraordinary legal actions, more outlandish claims from leftists in Hollywood and at so-called news organizations. Expect to be further disenfranchised and labeled if you challenge any part of the coup-makers’ agenda. Everything they do and think will be projected onto those with whom they disagree. There will be further, even violent, condemnation of those who follow Christ.
These are of the seed of rebellion. It’s not only rebellion against law and order, its root is rebellion against God. As Jude writes: “It was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ…Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.” This is what is happening in our nation. As Christ followers, we must be a prophetic people to stand in the gap and shine the light of salvation and righteousness. We have a say here, and the freedom to say it. Let’s use it so we don’t lose it. (Used with permission. Bill Wilson– Daily Jot).
