Standing United | 2022

The people are gathering as one voice to be heard. They are done with mandates which are designed to spark fear into the minds of the people. Fear is not an emotion that God wants for His children.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. ~ 2Tim. 1:7
Governments and those in authority have been over-reaching the limits placed upon them in free countries like the U.S. and Canada. Today I heard a Christian radio talk show that mentioned the following agenda. It will not be featured on mainstream media or academia, but I will offer it here as a possibility for you to consider. In order to further their agendas to steal God-given rights and liberties from the people, tyrants need big fear tactics like the following:
A pandemic - Whether natural or man-made, this situation may be politicized to scare and lock up or "lockdown" the public. Mask mandates, school closures, travel restrictions, business closures, job losses, substandard healthcare, and pandemic vaccinations due to governmental mandates, are just a few attacks upon the freedoms guaranteed by our democratic constitutions. Patients are denied access to effective treatments for a pandemic, but unproven vaccinations are mandated by governments. Healthcare professionals who speak out against such practices are tried in kangaroo-style institutional courts and promptly fired and their licenses revoked. Families have been denied access to loved ones on their death beds in hospitals due to mandates - tragically, and more. In the name of pandemic, lawmakers spend trillions of dollars in bills that budget 90% tax dollars for pork spending and possibly 10% on efforts to limit the suffering from the pandemic.
War - Anarchists use civil unrest to seed fear among the people. Our nation has become divided both politically, ethnically, and socially. Our society is polarized now by extremists who confuse the people with "cancel culture" and other hateful, judgmental and hurtful agendas designed to weaken our people. We are invaded at our southern border with no government support to stop it, yet overseas our leadership is constantly getting us into trillion-dollar wars to protect other countries' borders from invasion. This spreads fear in the stock market and disrupts our economy. Foreign wars have helped drive us deeper into national debt. All war sparks terror in the hearts of citizens and there are no winners or losers in these wars. It only further depletes our nation of resources at every level and makes leaders/lawmakers more powerful and wealthy.
Essential supplies - Cutting off supply chains to the public such as food and fuel, drives up the cost of supplies and results in economic catastrophes. Public health consequences escalate and are further impacted by the substandard healthcare practices of number one. National states of emergencies are not mandated to rectify the situation. They are power grabs to rob the peoples' liberties.
Climate Change - This fear tactic is based upon nonsense, not evidence. It is possibly the most unscientific-multi-trillion-dollar-boondoggle-politically-created-piece-of-wool ever pulled over the eyes of the taxpayer public thus far in history. It is completely designed to make billionaires richer and the public too fear-stricken to question. The political double talk is just too thick to cut with a knife, thus nullifying serious attempts at intellectual debate.
Remember, governments do not give freedoms to the people. Our freedom is God-given. That's right! God planted freedom within us at creation and man's governments only want to "crush" our freedom in order to enslave us. It is a strong-arm fear tactic used by tyrants since ancient times.
Yet Jesus called us to be meek and humble before tormentors in authority; for ever since man rebelled against God, He placed leaders over the people for their own good. Too bad many in authority misuse their power.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. ~ Matthew 5:9
So, who are peacemakers? They are not only the people who stand up for freedom and do it peacefully, but they stand up for all of the rights of you and I to live in harmony and peace without being violently "crushed" and enslaved by elites.
If at all possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. ~ Romans 12:18-19
In other words, avoid violence. Right now, it appears to some that many of these elites are hearing the message being shared by the people who protest mandates and other injustices; but instead of admitting to wrongdoing, they are tightening control out of FEAR. After all, they may not get re-elected by the voters when their terms of office end - at least by our constitutional laws.
God bless all those on the front lines today. They have taken the cause of "freedoms from mandates" into the streets of major cities in order to shine a very bright light upon dictators in office. It has become a very bright light indeed. The world is now not only watching, but it is participating in a global movement.
Having said all this, avoid violence, crime or wrongdoing, and protest peacefully and lawfully according to Romans 13:1-5 NLT:
Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. The authorities are God's servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the authority to punish you. They are God's servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.
Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. ~ Romans 13:13 NLT
This is a strong message, but a necessary one. Remember an organization called The Moral Majority? It sparked a movement that tried to put the brakes on Big Government intent on limiting our freedoms. It may have been disbanded too soon. It was derailed by broken promises of the same despots in charge of things today.
