I understand quoting Scripture is anathema these days, nevertheless I deem it very appropriate in many instances. For several years I have been getting the Hillsdale College publication “Imprimis”. I have just been reading the most recent issue (February 2019) titled “Shall We Defend Our Common History?” It is a scathing attack against the current, politically correct assault on many, many historical monuments representing various segments of actual historic eras and events that some minority groups find offensive. The author(Roger Kimball) calls this “…an attack on the past for failing to live up to our contemporary notions of virtue…that we, blessed members of the most enlightened cohort ever to grace the earth with its presence, occupy a moral plane superior to all who came before us.” In other words we are the smartest people to ever live and we can alter history to prove our point. Mr. Kimball goes on to offer much support for his commentary.

I look around me and I see

A world unlike it used to be,

A world that shifts from up to down

Wherein the truth is rarely found.

And people do not understand

The troubles that beset our land.

Having been born and raised south of the Mason-Dixon-Line I have always had a natural resentment of President Lincoln. Not necessarily because he freed the slaves, but because he was responsible for the death of a culture that had flourished down south. A lot of my growing up took place in the last Capitol of the Confederacy and there was a general dislike of all those “Damm  Yankees.”

The news following the election of November 6, 2013 has been forcefully illustrating the fact that America is a nation under judgment. Many people have been trying to warn us that judgment would be soon-coming unless our nation returned to one honoring God’s instructions for His Client Nations. I suspect most readers of these words will not be familiar with the term “Client Nation” since it is not a term commonly used by Pastors or other members of most churches. My understanding; it is a term describing a nation God has selected to use to further the spread of His gospel. Ancient Israel would be the first Client Nation.

We are but 3 days from the most critical election of my lifetime. I am not a prophet and cannot tell you how the election will go. But I am prophet enough to tell you that if the Democrats take control of either House America is in serious trouble. If they take control of both Houses THE LAND OF THE FREE WILL CEASE TO EXIST as we have known it.
