Government Control over Local Policing and After that Over Religion
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don't let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afriad to speak up. Now more than ever I need your strength to be the servant you have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
"It is an abomination to kings to do evil, for the throne is established by righteousness." Proverbs 16:12
Government control over local policing, after that...OVER RELIGION!!! Way back last summer during the Ferguson riots, I clearly laid out that the false narrative driven by the media was a much larger issue than a thug with a criminal record assaulting a police officer and getting killed in the process. I told you as those weeks went on with the visible involvement of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, as it became known the "protestors" were mostly paid professionals from various anarchist groups, as the demonization of the police by the media continued even after it was clear the police officer involved did nothing wrong cleared by the AG report, and you heard for the first time the term "police militarization," this was all about federalizing local police departments!!!
Of course after Ferguson came Brooklyn, South Carolina, Baltimore, and other incidents in a steady stream of what amounted to little more than local police interactions with criminals. IN EVERY CASE the media's "martyr" had a long criminal record and either assaulted the police, was running from the police, or resisting arrest. It is always sad when someone loses their life, however, IN EVERY CASE these were not innocent young black men minding their own business being executed by the police as the media narrative wanted you to believe!
Every day in this nation there are thousands of interactions between the public and the police. It goes without saying there are bad cops out there, just like there are bad apples in EVERY professions. Having said that, well over 99% of our men and women who put on the uniform to serve their communities, literally putting their lives on the line every time they do, are honorable public servants.
For the President and AG to become involved in nothing more than local issues didn't make sense. For the media to demonize the police non-stop day after day didn't make sense. For the media harping on the "militarization of the police" was something we have never heard of prior to Ferguson, and was clearly a talking point fed to the media by the Obama administration! Add the presence of Sharpton who become President Obama's puppet for this effort, along with professional anarchist groups paying "demonstrators," and it was evident it was all an orchestrated effort to federalize local police departments in this nation!
It was just announced that the Federal Government will be doling out MILLIONS to "community groups" like Sharpton's and others, to "bridge the gap" between the local police and their communities. This is why so many pastors in many minority communities have exchanged being men of God for "community leaders" in order to cash in on the free government money!
Now you have President Obama's executive order the other day to prohibit local police departments from acquiring military equipment like tracked armored vehicles like tanks, weaponized aircraft, and high-caliber weapons and ammunition. Also included in this executive order was structuring a new federal agency to work with local police forces!!! DOES ANY MORE NEED TO BE SAID???
I am sharing this with you today since it should set off alarm bells that the Federal Government could soon be overseeing local police departments. In addition, it is a FACT that there is nothing more the Federal Government would love to do than oversee...RELIGION! With their takeover of the internet, it is crystal clear to me that it won't be long before the US Government will dictate what can and can't be said in regard to religion.
Don't forget, it was only a month ago when Hillary Clinton stated people need to change their "religious thoughts" in regard to killing innocent babies. How many times has President Obama ripped Christians for daring to believe the Bible regarding the sin of homosexuality, the perversion of God's Holy Institution of Marriage, killing babies, as well as their "intolerance" of Islam!
My friend, it is only a matter of time, and that is quickly running out. You already have over 50% of "churches" who have acquiesced and support the various gross sins rampant in our culture. You already have a vast majority of "pastors" who have voluntarily stopped preaching what God's Word teaches on the issues of the day so they don't "offend" anyone in their congregation or in the government!
I love you and care about you so much. I have shared this warning in various forms over and over and over during these past 16 years, and with great intensity the past 7 years! Taking much personal abuse from supposed "Christians," our government, as well as the non-believing world, I have REFUSED to be silent or compromise God's Truth. They will have to kill me to silence me, since the eternal souls of men are at stake AS WELL AS THE SOUL OF THIS NATION!
Our time is limited so please pray for me and stand with me as we bring HIS Truth to the lost masses, lead people to faith in Jesus Christ, and help lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
