The MISSING ingredient in this equation is Leadership... What is it and where is it today? The Church is failing to provide Godly leadership on nearly every level.
God's idea of leadership is different than mankind's... I am reminded of Exodus 18:21 Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and tens.
Again, in Deuteronomy 16:18 we read: Judges and officers shall you appoint in all your cities... which, your God gives you... for your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. You shall not pervert judgment, you shall not respect someone’s presence, and you shall not accept a bribe, for the bribe will blind the eyes of the wise and make just words crooked. Righteousness, shall you pursue, so that you will live and possess the land that, your God gives you.
We have forgotten the ways of our fathers... and are now wondering once more in the wilderness of sin... a real place, a physical realm of hardship and desperate times. If we truly want to restore our land and homes... we must return unto the God of our forefather's, too follow Him in all of His ways... We must no longer entertain the world in our homes and play the harlot with other gods...
We are admonished in the Lord... too humble ourselves, and repent of our wicked ways... to pray unto the Lord for forgiveness and then he will heal our lands and restore our righteousness... until then we will reap what we have sown... sin and the wage of sin.. is death. Joshua was chastened to meditate on the Word of God day and night so that he may prosper... the Church and its followers would be well advised to d the same. Our problems would melt away if we had a moral, obedient body of believers at the head of our households and in the White House.
Patience may be a virtue… but when dealing with those who have no virtue, patients can become an enemy. We must not let excessive caution rule the day or fear destroy our hope. We are at war for the very soul of our nation… bold strides and broad advances need to replace the pastel and mediocre efforts of the past. America must act while the People still have the framework of a Constitutional Republic to reform. Let patience have her perfect works… but work, she must.
So far, it appears that our patience is not working… In fact, it has become an excuse for failure. Patience must be reinforced with Hope and Hope must have a vision. Where is our hope and a vision for the future? It is not enough to complain. America must organize under a single banner; it must find effective leadership and resourcing capable of developing a plan and a vision that can take root in the people; too, motivate and mobilize, the Spirit of 1776. A nation without a vision will perish. Where is the plan… the vision? Where may we place our patients and hope? Who among us will lead the people and where will they find the resources to wage war with the enemies of liberty?
Those may be hard words… but I believe they are a truthful representation of our current situation; nothing appears to be working, hope is turning to despair, and with it comes the specter of defeat. America can not wait for the next election cycle to begin, our efforts must materialize in the streets of America now… Patience is not working, it has become an excuse for ineffective action and failure.
America’s leaders and wealthy are failing to heed the call of its people… the despots hold our hope at bay and our patience is turning to despair. A people without a vision, a nation without true leadership, and a merchant class, that is unwilling to sacrifice for the good of the whole, will soon turn the American Dream into a nightmare. I call upon those who command the resources, those with the ability to lead, to take the reigns of America while there is yet daylight to work anew her foundations… Too, pull down the evil which has occupied our halls of government; too, restore our forefather's vision in a people who are desperate for leadership and renewal.
