People, especially followers of Christ in the United States, are going to certify and legitimize massive alienation beyond what the L-rd has commanded in this season.
Granted, in the case of Saul and Samuel, the removal of G-d’s Spirit from Saul and His commanding Samuel to stop grieving over Saul is one example where G-d legitimized alienation as a result of persistent rebellion–
And DO NOT get it twisted. This blog post is not an opportunity for people to say one political party or another is damned by G-d for its behavior. so do not use it as your time to grandstand for your chosen model
Rather, it is an opportunity to remind you, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Socialist, Progressive; Anarco-Capitalist, Keynesian, Smithian, Austrian economists, Communists, etc., to work for reconciliation and for removal of your pet ideology and to look for the execution of the Kingdom of Our L-rd in your life and with your fellow man.
Granted, various partisan and “non-partisan” groups have taken this time to attempt to alienate you from followers of Orange Man or Sniffit.
But Orange Man and Sniffit are not the point.
Your political ideology is not the point.
The point is the “kingdom of G-d”. Thank you, Judge Barrett, for reminding us of the chief end of man.
Gang, if you regularly digest ANY of the news that is out there now, you are getting fed a regular and mandatory mindset of alienation and fracturing of relationships, when, as a nation, we were meant to build something constructive and help other men and women to a place of sonship rather than a mindset of poverty.
The fly on VP Pence’s head during the debate serves a point.
You are getting manipulated by Beelzebub. He is a threshold guardian.
Do not fall for his trap.
Do not get victimized by saying “because Trump/Biden is in the White House” I cannot move forward.
Damn the mask….put on the damn mask.
Slave to the government. F*** the goverment.
Big Government. Small government. No government.
Granted, we have a need to execute the kingdom.
But, gang, no matter who is in office the next four years.
Look around you on the ground in your immediate vicinity and in/with/among your relationships, and FIND THE RAW MATERIALS that you can use to build something.
Your best work as an American is to be a builder in the life of another human. To help them unpack what they are made to do so they can go do it.
SCOTUS is not your g-d. It is become a golden calf.
Yeshua ha-Mashaich is your G-d, who has made you and predestined you to good things and to help others unpack their things inside of them.
This political theater between two sides of the same coin, intending to control you through fear and alienation, is not your end.
Some of you are hardwired for government and leadership and service.
For a season, or for permanence.
I remind you that the archetype of the husband found in Proverbs 31, and he is a type of the idea, the Proverbs 31 husband was a career politician.
Your job and my job is to find what we were each made to do, and to snub the distractions that seek to bind us to the kingdoms of this world.
And we were made to shake things up.
There were things that Barack Obama did to cause alienation and racism as much as there were things Donald Trump did to bring us together.
I know there people will call that previous statement garbage.
But can you find the good and the bad in a presidency or a politican and still call them by G-d’s intended design for them and call that design good?
If you can, then you have resisted the pull of the Mesmerizing Spirit.
The Mesmerizing Spirit that calls us with its siren song and begs us to label the part that we see as “the whole of the matter”.
Even if you are on one side or the other and you call your side right, you are still only seeing through a glass darkly.
Your job is to reflect His light.
Find what He is doing and where He is operating in you, and go do that.
I understand, this post is way more political than I sometimes like to get.
But my job is to help remind you that you still only see a part of the whole, and others that a part of that whole. G-d intended you each to gather and bring your parts together so you can see the whole more clearly.
Be at peace.
