Today, America under the leadership of the Democrat Party has left a burden to our citizenry that, in the purest sense of conservative values, rarely seen in government today, tells me that the Lord is not happy with his flock. Yeah, sure. I can just imagine many readers who frequent my blogs saying to themselves, “Yep, there he goes again!–Another tirade.” Of course you aren’t obligated to read my stuff. Maybe you shouldn’t if it raises your blood pressure to stroke level. To offer some relief for these folks, I may add that the Republican Party and Conservative movements that embrace elements of both parties within their ranks turns me off, too. What causes such uproar? In one word (I have the answer) POWER.
Being a pretty fair chess player with many triumphs in my nearly 70 years of combat, I do endeavor to leave my readers with some sort of commonsense voiced among my 600 articles that make up my website. 2007-2015 has been a pretty good run considering that some more sophisticated, well-meaning ventures into the chess world, have folded up their tents. For this, I thank my loyal brethren for its longevity.
Think back before our time about the nature of our wonderful Land. Overflowing rivers, forests that would have remained impassable but for the various Indian tribal maintenance of our forestry and other lessons passed down in the Colonial era. Chess in both South and North America found its beginnings through European heritage of Dutch, English, Germanic and Spanish settlers who braved New World explorations.
Time waits for no man. Only the Lord, our God, remains once, now, and forever and with each of us who believe upon him for guidance and happiness in love and joy, even among sorrows. For believe me when I say that in each case, He is with us with Love and protection and offers a guiding hand throughout our lives, even though at times we think he is asleep at the wheel–He is not but too often, we are!? We are by our secular embrace of judicial and governmental roles enhanced by the progressive movement within our Life’s Walk with our Lord who has to share such impressment of greed, corruption, and moral decay with Christian believers. They have their reward on Earth but will not be seen in Heaven. Morally they have destroyed themselves because they follow not the Law–that given us known as The Ten Commandments but rather by man’s created social structure often seen as alien to the Christian faith often seen as embracing lies, deceptions, and untruths that is a weapon of the angel Satan and his devil assistants.
“You shall know them by their wicked ways. We are all sinners but not as ravaging wolves among the sheep.” In my simple life, I fear not. The Lord is my staff and, like servants before me, unafraid of whatever comes. I pray that the young people today will embrace the Father in heaven, his Son in our hearts and strive to live meaningful lives that sometimes demands more from us than what we want to surrender. And we face ever mounting family dangers among ourselves, our sense of service being undermined by falsehoods from both within and abroad. Let wisdom prevail in our thoughts rather than adhere to such secular organizations created for man’s alienation from having any belief structure other than as lamented once by an atheist, “When you die you die–there is no here-after.
Jesus came to debunk that. He came to give joy and life and love to people who believe. For those who don’t believe we cannot change their spirit unless such change takes place in one’s heart. In a sense, to understand God’s law given as the Ten Commandments, we have no moral duty to force anyone to accept them. It rests solely within the heart of each of us as to how we want to live our life. Each of us have obligations and expectations going throughout our life as I have expressed here within. For faith has given us the holy Bible wherein lies the Ten Commandments and map for a successful and happy self, family, and broadening fellowship.
Lead us, Oh Lord, not into temptation, but deliver us from evil and to know the difference between good and evil. The Devils and Satan exists. The Angels in heaven exist as do those who rebelled against the ways of the Lord in favor of false promises and self adornment of his own beauty and cast out from God’s love by such rebellion to abide on Earth until the final battle that Michael, God’s warrior angel, will wage in final judgment. That is why Satan forever has waged war to cloud our minds in fear of that coming end time for his own forces when all who follow him will be cast into Hell fire for eternity.
Only faith and a steadfast eye on our ultimate goal will muster in peace, joy and love for eternity.
