Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. Certain opinions are being choked to death in America. I get why tech giants are fine with wielding oppressive control over people’s opinions—I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry. They are not, as some naïve ‘woke’ folk claim, “trying to save democracy.”
And yet, strangely, I feel a calm sense of hope amid all of this.
What I do not get is why many of the elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been wise and objective in the past are now strangely quiet during the censorship, silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives. Such widespread acceptance of tyranny by them is totally new to America.
And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.
What is also new is the attitude of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party. They have made it abundantly clear that they are not going to reach out to the millions who voted for Trump. They are moving on without us. No one has ever had that attitude after “winning” an election.
Does that sound like something is being forced on us? It should. 2020 has been a year full of things forced on the American people. Since they forced their election upon us, why would they feel any need to work with us?
What is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Precisely because it is evil.
Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.” Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.
It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always dealt with evil in America, even when we did not deserve it. It is not by accident that ‘wokesters’ have tried to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.
Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.
God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun: because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.
Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.
What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many. You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!
