A People Disunited
Every living human being believes in something or someone greater than themselves. Let’s call this something or someone a god. Furthermore, let’s distinguish between the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the idols (manmade gods) of secular societies. Some autocratic rulers believe they themselves are gods.
The Founding Fathers of America were men of faith, Christians. Many were ministers and chaplains. One started the Sunday School movement. To learn more, visit The Faith of Our Founding Fathers.
Communist governments like that of China and North Korea have no tolerance for the God of Christians and Jews. Communist rulers want the people to look to the government for all their needs. I refer the reader to a New York Times story titled To Inspire Young Communists, China Turns to ‘Red Army’ Schools.
Communist China so ardently believes in its atheistic government there are now Chinese communist Confucius Institutes in American universities. Reference: Politico – How China Infiltrated U.S. Classrooms
Why is the above important?
Communism is inherently atheistic. I will not say the Chinese are godless. They have a god and their god is the communist state, the communist government; all-powerful, all-knowing, all-controlling. In summary, communism is idolatry.
The American population is strikingly divided along a line marked on one side by the people of faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; raw unabashed atheism on the other. Again, atheism is idolatry.
The central issue is this division between believers in the God of the Bible and atheists. The product of the division will be either an all-powerful humanistic government or a smaller government that submits to the will of the people. There will be either more government and less freedom or less government and more freedom.
Individually, we all want more freedoms, regardless our partisan affiliation. However, those on the Democrat side – the left – want more free stuff from a bigger welfare state, while those on the Republican side – the right – want less government, restoration of the rule of law, religious freedom, and free markets.
Our collective slide to the left is marked with legalized abortion, judges who do not follow the Rule of Law, lawmakers who disregard the enumerated powers in the Constitution, bloated welfare rolls, ever-increasing taxes, preferential treatment of illegal aliens and Muslims, and conferal of special rights to persons practicing abhorrent, unnatural sexual behaviors.
Back in 2015, Lance Wallnau foretold the rise of businessman Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States of America. Video: Lance Wallnau Says Donald Trump Is Being Raised Up And Protected By God Lance based his prophecy on Isaiah 45:1-13, likening Mr. Trump to Cyrus.
One year after that prophecy, We the People elected Donald Trump to be our 45th president. On January 20, 2017, President Trump assumed the office.
President Trump’s list of achievements, fulfillment of his promises to us, is amazing and lengthy.

This year, 2018, adds even more accomplishments to the above list, including the de-nuclearization of North Korea, dramatic tax cuts, record employment, manufacturing returning to our shores, and so on. He’s also cutting the size of the federal government and securing our southern border.
The bottom line: President Trump has decreased the size of government. Greater freedom is the consequence.
The Rabid Opposition
The Deep State, Democrats, anarchists, corrupt politicians, and activist judges don’t like this president. Even before he assumed office, Democrats were scheming to impeach President Trump.
The left now uses ill-informed high school students in a drive to disarm us, contrary to the Second Amendment shall-not-be-infringed phrase.

Overall, we Republicans have more money, but the Democrats are counting on and working hard to have a greater voter turnout.
What are we on the right to do?
- First and foremost, answer this question. Who or what is your god? If your answer is the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, you can advance to the next step.
- Let’s get right with God before we strive to get voters to the polls. If you harbor unforgiveness, you are unforgiven yourself. Forgive others and repent from unholy habits.
- Pray for all in authority.
- Speak publicly about your faith. Tell YOUR story. We believers all have a story about our personal relationship with the Living God and his Son, Jesus Christ.
- Guard your heart and control your mouth. Bless those who curse you and do good to those who do evil to you.
- Expect good things to happen. This is called having faith in God.
