The US Supreme Court is making a mockery out of marriage. Irrespective of its decision, just the questions being asked and the answers being given are ridiculous. The term “marriage” has a definition that is been the same since the earliest recordings of civilization and YHVH God creating man and woman and giving the laws to His people. Any change in definition is changing the word and its meaning. The European Union is confiscating money from personal bank accounts to pay debt. That same practice may make its way to America. The federal government through the Federal Reserve is propping up the stock market with $85 Billion a month. What will happen when that stops?

The Department of Homeland Security is buying bullets and armored vehicles for local deployment. When the Fed stops propping up the market, the economy will likely collapse. Inflation will be high, jobs will be few, food will be costly and scarce, hungry people will be angry.  Stripping the American citizen of the institution of marriage creates a deep psychological conflict as marriage is the basis of society. Creating massive insurmountable debt and expecting hard working Americans to pay up through taxes or outright confiscation, leaves the citizenry without means. Banning weapons and putting foreboding, well-armed vehicles in the streets makes the citizenry seemingly defenseless.

All the government actions of late point to a huge shift ahead for America. Our lives could be forever changed because we seem unable or unwilling to stand up and fight this leviathan. So many ask what to do. At some point if this keeps going on, you will be forced to decide what to do. But the longer it takes to resist this juggernaut of a takeover of America and a destruction of our Republic, the more suffering on the horizon. How do we as Christians handle this? People will be looking for answers. They will need hope. Aside from being a good citizen of the original American Revolution, you must be above all a good citizen of the Kingdom of God. We must convey the gift of hope and salvation.

2 Corinthians 4:8-11 says, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken, cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” Verse 6 says, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” I also love 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” May we be such.
