I was born on Armicitice Day of the Korean War. My Paternal Grandfather had been awarded the U.S. Medal of Honor for Service Above; Beyond, during WWI. My Maternal Grandfather had over seen the building of V.A. Hospitals. When the Cuban Missle Crisis "Hit" the USA, as a child, I spent time in deep prayer, crying with many across the Nation, for Russia to back down there be no Atomic War against the USA. I still can remember where I was ; what I was doing, the moment
my Dad came running to get me, hearing on the radio in a Parishioner's garage, of President Kennedy's assassination in Dallas,TX. I was injured the Sunday following his murder and was miraculously healed through Jesus' name in prayer that same week. I still can remember where I was standing, when I heard Nixon had resigned for attempts in covering up "Politics as Usual." I remember watching on the Network News so many of my fellow American teens who were foolishly marching, doing sit ins, and being shot by soldiers for their actions of anarchy. I remember the Civil Rights Marches, thinking about how, just a few years before, our family had called our parsonage/home what had been originally built, as the very first brick school house, built for freed slaves children. And our Church Building had been originally the second one built for freed slave's children, outside the town limits, where the "Southern Sympothizer's MO State Government" had fled to at the beginning of the American Civil War.
Un-Like many, I attempted to in-list during Vietnam, after getting my Draft Notice ; Number assigned of 300. To be reclassified by the D.O.D. as 1-AHold. [Not knowing until over 39 years later, that I'd been re-classified as 1-AHold, because of my Grandfather's Medal of Honor Service during WWI.] As I grew, matured, and aged; I've seen "American Politics" CHANGED ever and ever, more gradually becoming Socialistic. Watching freedoms and FAITH slowing slipping into histories' dust bins.......... As I watched young generation after younger generation NOT being taught FULL TRUTH in Public Schools of ALL that led and guided the Founding Father's and Suffering Colonists as they fought through the Revolutionary War, followed shortly after by another British War, called "The War of 1812".
I've served repeatedly in different Public School Districts as a Substitute Teacher, while watching their Teacher's teaching "Revised Histories" for truth, when in reality, they were only mere shadows of the REAL TRUE HISTORY of my beloved nation. I was one whom for PRINCIPAL ALONE campaigned for "That crazy Texan" Ross Perot, because I simply did not believe that either the Democrat or Republican Candidates were the "BEST" for my Nation's Future. Knowing all along that "Ross" would loose. But! I stood upon my Constitution ; teachings from childhood and youth; AND TOOK MY STAND anyway. I've watched President's come and go. While the US Political Pendulum swang back and forth, from Conservative to Liberal, all the while, gradually landing farther and farther away from what the Great Founders had originally invisioned for "The Great Experiment". When it came to 2000, with a choice between "CLOSET LIBERAL"; "OPEN LEFT WING LIBERAL" when viewed through the lens of Founder's Historic Understanding of the "New Government" and the new "U.S. Constitution"; I swallowed hard, with my Wife, and being the ONLY ORDAINED MINISTER'S IN OUR METRO REGION to DARE TO DO SO: (!) We steeped forward to Volunteer in our Long held Very Liberal Voting Township, and pulled together a small Team of Volunteers. Less than ONE WEEK before Election Day, we convinced the BUSH TEAM to "Red Lite" UPS Ship all "LEFT OVER SCRAPS" of Literature from Campaign Offices across all 50 States, to our's in, MO. And, with our little volunteer team, made up of Classic Trinitarian Pentecostals, and Roman Catholics; We began distributing literature, door to door! Seeing our dedication; where there had been none before, nor planned in advance for..... by the GOP; the Local Bush Campaign Manager began gathering other Volunteers, sending them all across Townships where they'd never planned to go....... and they too, began spreading literature. THE RESULTANT AFFECT? Well! Bush Won! But!! Even more....... everyone was surprised!!!
For, there was nearly a LAND SLIDE of Bush Votes counted in the "Liberal" Midland Township!!!!! I ALSO remember that same Election! Our County needed another election Judge Supervisor! NO OTHER PREACHER~PASTOR~PRIEST would step forward, to help insure that every registered Voter could vote! So! Once again! This Ol' Wild Cowboy Pastor, stepped up to the plate, and volunteered!!!! AND THE RESULT????? AH! Not much......... EXCEPT, WHILE SERVING; I UNCOVERED EXTENSIVE "INSIDE" ACTIONS OF VOTER FRAUD!!!! Talk about being de-briefed!!!! Ya ain't ever been unless you are by Campaign Politicians, Election Law Attorneys and U.S. Senator's Staff's!!!! BUT! Was it worth it???? YOU BET!!!!! WHY?
Because there were many false votes being cast!!!! Illegal voting procedures were being applied!!!!! Then, fast forward to 2008! Ann; I decide to get involved after Sarah Palin got tagged. We did some volunteer work at the local Campaign Office. Nothing really important, we thought. BUT! Then, in August, a COGIC Bishop who serves as an adviser to our Ministry Organization; declared in Holy Prophesy over myself; Ann, that soon, God was going to again, place us before Federally Elected Officials of the Federal Government! Well! That September, receiving the Mail, we read an Official RSVP Invitation to attend a small BBQ to be held at a U.S. Senator's home. When we phoned to confirm, we were instructed how to dress and given directions! Arriving, we "Found" that I and the U.S. Senator were dressed identically. Well, when he came to great us, we could have talked politics. Did we? NO! As Ann; I both knew we were there as Ordained Ministers on a mission, being the ONLY Ordained Ministers who were invited; We stood for several minutes ministering into the life of that U.S. Senator. Then, he surprised us, by asking me to stand with him before the gathering and pray the blessing over the meal we were to eat! As I stood shoulder touching shoulder with that Senator, I didn't preach, though I probably could have! No! I prayed a direct prayer for guidance and blessings from the Lord, for everyone there. Candidates, elected Officials, from Counties, State ; federal Governments! Just as the Holy Spirit had directed that ol' COGIC Bishop to declare over us! NOW! It's 2012! The MAYAN Calendar declares the imminent end of this age. The New Testament, and Old Testament likewise shows shadow warnings that we are moving toward the return of the Lord as well!!!!!! I DECLARE THIS INSTEAD!!!!!! The Bible declares!!!!!; "Occupy Until I Return" saith the Messiah Jesus! The Apostle Paul was, until he died, a ROMAN EMPIRE PROVINCIAL SENATOR! If it hadn't have been for wicked mad man, NERO (!) Paul may have lived a longer life!
Many of his stated "Runners" were appointed by the Roman Government. They became beloved servants of Christ Jesus! Many times if it hadn't have been for Paul's Political Title, he'd not have received some of the open opportunities he received!!!! If one truly reads his letter to the Believers in Rome, He was writing to Believers whom were ALSO serving in Government as well as recognized Community Leaders! Read his political instructions in Chapter 13 of Romans!!!!! Many a modern Believer and Minister has failed to study fully! IF they did, they'd realize that Jesus was regularly debating members of the Priesthood ~ BY LAW, these were the legal Sheriff Deputies of their day. He debated the members of the Sadducees and the Pharisees! THESE WERE THE POLITICAL PARTIES of that day! He warred against the LEGAL PREJUDICES OF THAT DAY! Going into Samaria, Talking at a well to a SAMARITAN HALF BRRED HEBREW? GENTILE::::: a group hated as much in that day as some wrongly hate some minorities in this nation, still today!!!! Jesus showed TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LOVE by telling the story of the Priest~Pharisee~Samaritan; Jew who was beaten! THAT WAS A VERY POLITICAL SERMON IN IT'S DAY! Yes! It was spiritual as well! But! In that day, it
was very hot politically for him to do much which he did!~ You see, in my many years of life; I've watched, as the Lord opened many doors for my Father, for me, for a Brother (now dead; in Heaven) across the USA, even into foreign nations that were doors which brought Holy Ghost REVIVAL, but also, just as many, which brought changes to COMMUNITY ; GOVERNMENTS as well!!! Local~State~ Multi-State~Foreign! DO I BOAST????? NO! I DECLARE A DEEP TEACHING!!!! It is this! ELOHIM, Father ~ Holy Spirit ~ Son; IS DEEPLY CONCERNED FOR HUMANITY AT EVERY LEVEL. BUT! He has decreed it is the BELIEVER'S JOB to be a WITNESS a LIVING, LIFE CHANGING WITNESS in every circumstance and level of society! Some Preachers and Believers like to pridefully announce: "THE USA IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET!!!!!" I stand like a 21st Century Jeremiah And Ask them: "BUT!!!! WHAT HAVE YOU LIFTED A HAND TO DO IN JESUS' NAME TO MAKE A PURE AND RIGHTEOUS WITNESSING CHANGE??????" Therefore reader! I STAND BEFORE YOU IN THIS HOUR!!!!!! I declare! Study!
Follow every piece of news you can dig up, on every Candidate!!! Pray! Seek the Lord for Holy Guidence! Then, IF you've forgotten what the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution Actually Declares [for that sets forth how our Government's are to function alone!] Go on line and read them!!!!! Then, Face yourself in the mirror!
Ask yourself: "DO I HAVE THE GUTTS TO STAND UP? Ask Yourself; "WHICH CANDIDATE AND THEIR VIEWS AND GOALS, COMES CLOSEST TO THE WRITTEN LINES FOUND RECORDED IN THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS!?" "WHICH CURRENT CANDIDATE'S VIEWS AND STATED POLICIES WOULD LINE UP THE CLOSEST TO WHAT FOUNDERS DECLARED ABOUT THE NEW GOVERNMENT?" (IF)
You don't know where to find writings of the Founders on these questions...... Then by all means, search my notes...... Y'all find one in which I copied many of their quotes! Then, determine to work and vote for that Candidate! Newt said it correctly! The USA Must be drawn back to it's founding Faith ; "Every Man is given freedom by God in Heaven! It is a right that is God Given, not Government assigned by Politicians and Bureaucrats......" (paraphrased) Then! Get down on your knees!!!! Some of you readers haven't prayed in weeks and months! With some others, it's been days! Dedicate yourself to the service of the Lord! Take upon yourself the same boldness which Jeremiah, Isaiais, Amos, Hosea, Ezekiel, Paul, Stephen, Peter, each took, in their hour of testing! Then, let the Holy Spirit flow into your heart, filling you to over flowing! For! There are Policies in place from our current Government Officials that are totally diametrically apposed to Holy Scripture, and even to the personal faith writing's of our Nation's Founders! I ask you: "HOW LONG MY BROTHER, MY SISTER, WILL YOU LET YOUR HANDS HANG LIMP? HOW LONG WILL YOU ALLOW YOUR LEGS STAND FROZEN IN PLACE? HOW LONG BEFORE YOU STAND UP ON YOUR FEET AND SHOUT? COME! LET US REASON TOGETHER! JAMES DECLARED; 'Any Man lacking WISDOM, He should seek the Father in Heaven, whom will impart Yahweh, the Holy Spirit, in Wisdom!' LET US SEEK THE WISDOM OF GOD SO WE CAN SEE OUR NATION RISE IN SHINING STRENGTH BY THE FRESH BLESSINGS OF ALL MIGHTY GOD!" COME! LET US LOCK ARMS AND CALL OUR FELLOW CITIZENS TO CRY OUT UNTO THE LORD THAT WE SEE OUR NATION RETURN TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OUR FOUNDERS ALL UNDERSTOOD! " Will you? Or, will you simply read these words and having finished them, you rise from your computer, turning your head, and as quickly, you forget........ and remain as you are today? YES! I'M CALLING UNTO YOU!!!!! Our Nation needs a Holy Revival!!! A Revival in Spirit, in Righteous Decisions, In Politics......... What will you do?
