Avenge Us, O Lord

Unjust judge, shameless widow (Luke 18) – An Informed Faith

Not too long ago, I cited this parable of the widow and the unjust judge, found in Luke 18:2-8. It seems particularly applicable just now. Here it is, from the King James Version.

“There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: and there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man, yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

“And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

We, the American people, Christians and others, have had a colossal crime committed against us–and our courts refuse to hear the evidence. Every worldly institution in which we trusted, in which we hoped for justice, has failed us. They liked The Swamp and they wanted it back.

We have nothing left but our prayers, and the judge of all the earth who hears them.

In Jesus’ name, O God, avenge us. And put things right again: because we can’t, but you can. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Well, they didn’t stage a riot yesterday. Lucky us.

Are We Living in a Tom Clancy Novel?

I refuse to recognize senile Joe Biden as president of anything. But I’ve learned something I hadn’t known before: No amount of evidence matters, if the courts refuse to hear it.

And every worldly institution, every law, in which we put our trust, has failed us. Turns out they were all corrupted, every one.

They stole the election and now they can run wild. God defend us.

Heapin’ Up the Hubris

Abimelech.Death Of.BibleOutlines | Daily Office Asia-Pacific

We see this pattern over and over again.

In the Bible, the usurping tyrant Abimelech rides higher and higher–until a woman kills him with a piece of a millstone (Judges 10:18). In one Greek tragedy after another, the doomed protagonist just can’t stop pushing his luck until it finally deserts him altogether and the gods destroy him. And closer to our own time, we have Shakespeare’s tragedies–King Lear, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, take your pick: the hero goes too far, and that’s the end of him.

Question! Why, in so many different cultures, widely spread apart in time and space, do so many writers seem to write the same thing? The Bible calls it pride, the Greeks called it hubris: the pride that destroys its owner.

Why have so many different artists written about it–unless it’s because hubris is a real thing that happens in real life? Furthermore, it seems most civilizations knew that, even if they didn’t have the guidance of the Bible. The Roman general Flamininus wept for the foe he’d just defeated, all that splendor gone down in flames. He was afraid to rejoice in his pride, lest the same fate befall him. So you see, the pagans knew about this, too. God never kept it a secret.

Today we have the Far Left Crazy running wild, rejoicing in the fraud that put their puppet in the White House, licking their lips over the insane mischief they mean to do to this country. It’s their hour on the stage, and they strut and fret for all they’re worth. “We can do anything we want! To anybody!”

May the Lord deal with them as He dealt with Abimelech and all the other usurping tyrants of history, all buried under their hubris in the pit of Hell.

 

What to Write?

Slow Motion Lizard Tongue Catching Prey on Make a GIF

It’s Sunday–the sabbath, for many of us–and I don’t want to write about stealing elections and dumping our country into a cauldron of boiling-over wickedness: plenty of time to do that all week long.

I watch the chameleon catching the fly and I wonder whether God is trying to tell us something. The fly has no idea the chameleon is anywhere nearby. But here I am straying into the nooze… *sigh*

Judah the Maccabee, although he was fighting desperately for the preservation of his people, nevertheless refrained from fighting on the Sabbath: it was his way of honoring the sovereignty of God and declaring his trust in Him. So he would only fight if the enemy actually attacked him.

Against all odds the Maccabees recovered the freedom of the Jewish people. And their situation was much more hopeless than ours. They had to fight against men. We fight against cowards, liars, and fools.

Ach! There I go again. Sorry!

‘Babbling About Babel’ (2018)

Even a fool, King Solomon said, might pass for wise, if he can only keep his mouth shut.

But what we have here is a whole posse of fools displaying their ignorance not just by prattling away about things they know nothing about, but going on to make a documentary about it.

Babbling about Babel

It’s astounding that so many people could be so wrong, all at once. What if someone assembled a whole production company to make a documentary about Abraham Lincoln leading America through World War II? Heaven knows what these films cost.

Well, our apparent ignorance of the Bible does go far to explain the way our country has wound up.

‘Fake News, 1938’ (2017)

See the source image

Why was this man smiling? Had he just read some British newspapers?

Just how badly can fake and feckless “news” reporting damage a country?

It very nearly killed Great Britain.

Fake News, 1938

The owners of the major newspapers, the BBC, and the ruling political party all worked together to convince the British people they had nothing to fear from Adolf Hitler, he was a nice man, he only wanted what was reasonable, he would never go to war, etc., etc.

Not only was it all lies. They knew it was all lies. And when war finally did break out, it found Britain weak and unprepared.

Many, many people suffered for this.

As our country will suffer–at the hands of Red China, our own fake nooze media, and the Democrat Party.

Okay, Got It!

All right, now I know what to write for Newswithviews. Consider this a preview.

Even as we sit here watching, the Big Lie–or, if you’re a noozie, “The Narrative”–is being sculpted out of a lot of smaller (but still big) lies. Here are its chief components.

*There was no fraud in this past election (a real whopper).

*Donald Trump incited a riot at the Capitol (completely ignoring riots incited by Democrats over the past four years, including several invasions of the Capitol–but those, of course, don’t count).

*COVID-19 is the deadliest disease in all of human history, and fully justifies any and all draconian measures and abridgements of our civil rights to, er, fight it.

*America is an evil racist country in sore need of a fundamental transformation.

*Communist China is our friend.

*80 million people, who haven’t been heard from since, voted for China Joe Biden.

And there you have it–pushed on us by our Free & Independent Nooze Media morning, noon, and night.

God help us.

What to Do, What to Do…?

Confused Lizard Meme Generator - Imgflip

Scanning the nooze this morning, I find myself feeling kind of downhearted; and I don’t know what to write. Democrats are chopping down and paving over what’s left of our republic. But you don’t need me to tell you that.

One thing I am sure of. Our sins, our sloth, our folly landed us in all this trouble. We might have stopped them from stealing the election, but we didn’t–too much trouble. So now we’re stuck.

If we can get out of this without losing our constitutional republic, if we can get out of this without losing our liberty, will we not know that God alone has rescued us? Would that be an important lesson to learn?

Donald Trump took on The Swamp, alone, no one in Washington loyal to him… and The Swamp won. It has too much money, too much power; and as big as it is, The Swamp itself is part of something even bigger–the rule-the-world partnership of global capitalists and Communist China.

In the Book of Judges, Chapter 7, Midianites have conquered and oppressed Israel and Gideon has raised an army to fight back. Verse 2: “And the LORD said to Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.” Gideon had raised an army of a little over 30,000 men. God had him send home all of them except 300–a hundredth of what Gideon had started with.

By the power of God and not by man, the Midianites were smashed and driven out of Israel.

God loves to use weak things to overthrow the strong; and He punishes the proud. He loves it when His enemies confide in their own strength, not knowing they’re practically begging Him to tear them down.

Pray unceasingly. It may be God will save us.

 

 

2017: Obama’s Attorney General Called for Riots

See the source image

She called for ‘blood.’

It was early in the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency.

The fabulously corrupt and partisan attorney general of Pipsqueak Obama’s second term, Loretta Lynch–famous for her totally improper meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at an airport, which resulted in all charges being dropped against the even more corrupt Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton–called on Americans to shed “blood in the streets” for… well, nothing in particular: just to show that interloper Trump who’s boss: the hand that rocks the riots rules the country (https://www.wnd.com/2017/03/loretta-lynch-need-more-marching-blood-death-on-streets/).

Today it’s the end of the world because there was a pro-Trump demonstration at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and some people–who may have been planted there by Antifa–got out of hand. Oh, the horror of it all!

But it was just peachy-keen for a former attorney general to call for riots. Just like it was totally okay for left-wing wackos to barge in on Congress during the Kavanagh confirmation hearings, and totally okay for them to pound on the doors and try to break into the swearing-in ceremony. Those were all applause-worthy because leftids did them. For which there were no consequences at all.

The double standard is always in place.

And now, thanks to massive election fraud, we have a Democrat government that has no right to be there but which will use the opportunity to do all the damage that it can to our country.

We have to think of some way to oppose them.

Meanwhile, don’t hold your breath waiting for any former Republican office-holders to call for riots.

Only Democrats can get away with that.

Why They Hate Donald Trump

Foaming At The Mouth High Resolution Stock Photography and Images - Alamy

Even with the election theft nailed down, even with all three branches of government in their hands and nothing to impede their destruction of America as we know it–even now, with them sitting in the catbird seat, Democrats’ hatred of Donald Trump is unquenchable. It borders on hysteria.

Why do they hate him so? Well, at least some of the reasons are obvious.

They hate him because he’s not one of them, not of the political class but an outsider. The White House is perceived as the exclusive property of America’s professional political class.

They hate him because throughout his campaign and during his presidency, he mocked our political big shots, got us peasants laughing at them, threatened to shake them off their pedestals.

But of course the unforgivable sin of Donald Trump was success. Remember Pipsqueak Obama saying America’s manufacturing sector was dead, “Those jobs are never coming back. What’s he [Trump] gonna do–wave a magic wand?” And within a few months of Trump’s inauguration, he had the economy humming again–and manufacturing was coming back, after all.

Totally unforgivable! He made our professional politicians look like the incompetent, feckless, bumbling, corrupt yinks that they are. He routinely did the things they can’t do, could never do. And in so doing, he forged a connection with the American people that they could only overcome by massive fraud.

They want to make sure that no outsider like Trump should ever again dare to run for president, and win. This is why they will not be satisfied with ousting him from the White House. Not enough: they will seek to destroy him–as a warning to others.

But we say, Thank you, President Trump! The good things that you did will now be undone. You couldn’t drain the Swamp, but you were the only one who tried. The Swamp got back at you, big-time. And now it will go back to feeding on us and on our labors. You tried to spare us that: shame on us if we ever forget.
