May Your Eyes Be Opened

1 Corinthians 7: 31

While we traverse this usually temporal and sometimes metaphysical plane, we should remember unavoidable truisms (what should be considered a truism, but sadly many doubt what isn't easily explained).

This week in Amerika and all around the world, quite a lot of people seemed to have lost their minds.

This year's presidential (s)election took many people by surprise.

Many people became very afraid, upset and cried... while others celebrated.

Yet for some of us, the government's process and media's propaganda was amusing.

And it was sad to see many friends lose hope, and realize how lost they are in so many ways.

Perhaps this is what happens with every (s)election the world-over... or every change in any kountry's leadership, either peaceful or by force.

I can't help but notice the outcome of propaganda media working very powerfully on people's conscience.

I see very little wisdom.

Very little peace in people who kept a close eye (and had hope) in this (s)election process.

Why is this?

Why would people, who supposedly live in the most free, the most stand-on-your-God-given-rights country, be afraid of a change in secular government?

I'd like to point out a few things that I noticed.

I heard on the radio this week a woman explain, in Spanish, to all those people who are fearing deportation now under a different president something very important.

The U.S. Constitution clarifies the right of any man or woman, regardless of their 'papers' or documentation, to exist in the United States.

Regardless if one has a government document that shows them a citizen, or 'legally' sojourning in and throughout the United States proper, the government does NOT have the power to remove you.. unless with an arrest warrant and order of deportation.

There is a process.

It is called “due process”.

The fear that the propaganda media pushes, or so-called 'leaders' tout from behind microphones on television, that at any moment a person can be removed for whichever reason from the United States, is simply fear-based propaganda.

What is also quite interesting, and yet sad because many people are not too aware, that under President Obama (and a democratic executive administration), nearly three million people were deported!

That is more than all presidents of the 20th century combined!!

However, to be clear and fair; the vast majority were criminals (or those with crimes attached to their person).

I state this to clarify that what is feared from one individual has already been at work from another... and thus the left vs right paradigm is a hoax of grand proportions... both sides of the isle are, and have been, one in the same.

Another thing I think I noticed as a truism, which takes faith to understand, and aside from the cognizance of reading a lawful document and deciphering what rights are clarified to any man or woman, is how putting one's trust in another human being is a recipe for failure and disappointment... and worse.

Consider what this message speaks to your heart.

Consider also the second portion of the message... and how some of us were NOT shocked by the (s)election results, regardless of who were to win or to lose or whatever were to arise.
This is what the I Am says: 
   “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, 
who draws strength from mere flesh 
   and whose heart turns away from the I Am. 
That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; 
   they will not see prosperity when it comes. 
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, 
   in a salt land where no one lives.  
But blessed is the one who trusts in the I Am, 
   whose confidence is in Him. 
They will be like a tree planted by the water 
   that sends out its roots by the stream. 
It does not fear when heat comes 
   its leaves are always green. 
It has no worries in a year of drought 
   and never fails to bear fruit.” 
- Jeremiah 17: 5-8

Whether the soon-to-be president becomes a blessing or a curse for Amerika (and the world) would be exactly what God had determined.

Both scenarios in the above Scripture shall be realized for all who have ears to hear... even for the deaf and faithless, but sadly they won't know what has befallen them or why.
