The People of God Must Regain Their Rightful Place in Society

America’s DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE was written as a proclamation to the world of the reasons why the colonial leaders called for a separation from England. But while the declaration gave a detailed list of legal offenses that England had left unresolved, the Founders saw these as more than isolated wrongs. Rather; they saw them as part of a predetermined plan to take away their religious liberties and reestablish the church of England to rule over their hearts and souls, thus spiritually enslaving the colonies. In that light, one understands the power on Patrick Henry’s fiery words, “give me liberty or give me death.’

Faced with such prospects, the Declaration stated that the American colonists were set to defend “the laws of nature and of nature’s God”- words that define the principle upon which the Founders stood. The laws of nature were understood to mean the will of God for man as revealed to man’s reason. However, because man is fallen and his reason does not always comprehend this law, God gave His law in the Bible to make it absolutely clear.

THUS, IT WAS THE CHURCHES THAT became the primary source that stirred the fires of liberty. Many Church leaders told the colonists that the British government was usurping their God-given rights, and the King and Parliament were violating the laws of God. The Founding Fathers were convinced that it was their sacred duty to begin a revolution to uphold the law of God against the unjust and oppressive laws of tyrannical men. The fight for political freedom was seen as a sacred cause because civil liberty was an inalienable right, according to God’s natural law.

The New England ministers, in particular were decisive in rallying the popular moral support for war against England. They pressed their congregations to overthrow King George because they believed that rebellion to tyrants was obedience to God. From many pulpits, ministers recruited troops and strengthened them battle with patriotic sermons. While the church leaders were well aware of the Biblical admonition to submit to civil authorities (Romans 13), they clearly noted there are numerous passages that recognize the need to resist ungodly authority. For example, when the apostles were commanded by the Sanhedrin to cease preaching that Jesus Christ had risen from the dead. But Peter boldly retorted: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29).

Therefore, it is no coincidence that one of the watchwords of the American Revolution was “No King but King Jesus.” For most of the patriots, their faith gave them the courage to stand on God’s word and risk their lives and properties to break the tyranny of an unjust human authority. In their Christian world view, obedience to God took precedence over country, over government, and their primary allegiance was to the Lord Jesus Christ.

In 1775, the Lutheran pastor John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg preached a sermon on Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Concluding the message, he declared, “In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to preach and a time to fight. And now is the time to fight.” He then threw off his clerical robes to reveal the uniform of a Revolutionary Army officer. That afternoon, he marched off with 300 men to join General George Washington’s troops and became Colonel of the 8th Virginia Regiment.

Numerous ministries turned the colonial resistance into a righteous cause and served at every level in the conflict, from military chaplains to members of state legislatures to taking up arms and leading troops into battle. Ultimately, after two main British armies were captured by the Continental Army at Saratoga in 1777 and Yorktown in 1781, the other words of Patrick Henry to his fellow Virginians proved true. “Three million people, armed with the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.”

The fighting spirit of Christians throughout history serves as a sterling reminder that in order to sustain liberty in our republic we must be willing to first learn about true liberty. Then “We the People” are commissioned to restore liberty where it has been lost and then sustain it everywhere. Many pastors have been purposely misleading their flocks into both utter spiritual and natural oblivion. They have lulled many generations to sleep via the fly away doctrine which has people thinking they are being raptured out of here at any given time. But the word plainly tells us to occupy until “HE” returns. In other words, do not cower away in the dark corners of society and complain about how bad things are if you refuse to utilize your God given talents to occupy positions of influence, business ownership, proper parenting, good schools, etc.

Both Biblical and American history have numerous examples of mighty men of valor who left an indelible mark on their respective societies. God prefers men even flawed men who have the strength of character to stand and fight against corruption and tyranny. But those who sit and do nothing or allow those who wish to corrupt, take over and change their institutions are only destined to be either swept away or dominated. I believe that America will be great again because of a large remnant of Americans refuse to allow those who desire to destroy our republic to have their way. Do not be concerned about the giants of evil in the land. If we fight, pray and have faith, like the patriots of old the victory is ours for the taking. God bless you, God Bless America and may America bless God.

A New Year and A New Age

Donald J. Trump was formally sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.  Despite certain public polls that indicate the president remains a very unpopular figure among most Americans especially females, our republic will rise again even though many Americans are ignorant of the truth.  In fact, I will call it a new American great awakening.  Of course, millennials will have to learn that the socialism they now prefer is not the road to real economic prosperity or justice as they like to call it. 

The decades of poisoning American students against everything you can think of as good brought America alarmingly close to utter collapse during the election of 2017.  Had Mrs. Clinton been elected president, I submit to you that “We the People” would have to be concerned about everything ranging from major military invasions to the complete collapse of our America equal to what occurred in Venezuela.  Believe it or not, the honest reason why the dragon media has been on a seemingly endless attack on Trump is not because of his tweets or certain behavioral proclivities, though that is what they promote to an incurably ignorant mass of sovereign citizens.

The real problem with president Trump, is his attack against long standing institutions and customs that have been in place to bring about the gradual decline and wasting away of the United States of America.  Our republic is the one and only nation that stands in the way of the underhanded mission of the United Nations, other lefist organizations and cabals to plunge the world into a false sense of security then sudden collapse.  Venezuela is exhibit A for such a plot.  Trump understands that for a nation to remain great, her people must be economically prosperous, appreciative of the nation, have stable traditional families, faith in God and maintain high moral values.  That does not appeal to those who envision fundamentally changing America. 

But fortunately, there is a growing remnant of Americans who love God, country and family.  We understand that if our republic is to be that shining city on a hill nation again, we must be willing to refocus America on the very principles that made her great.  It is not so much a revival that is needed, but rather an awakening.  For the first time in our nation’s history, over half of a generation is void of Christian values, knowledge and respect for our constitution and bill of rights or why it is important to protect our national sovereignty.  On the surface, one might say the situation looks hopeless and that America the beautiful is doomed to land on the ash heap of history. 

But if one actually takes a look at history, there are numerous examples of various civilizations overcoming tremendous odds and avoiding the ultimate destruction of their society.  Our own republic was threatened with the possibility of being wiped out before the inauguration of our first president.  Then again in 1812 the British burned the presidential residence to the ground and attempted to grab the port of New Orleans, but our resolve to overcome was underestimated a second time.  When one considers that Great Britain was the super power of that time and rarely if ever lost military conflicts it was miraculous that the United States defeated the British Empire twice. 

Perhaps we today can take a page from history and close ranks with those who are not willing to allow our republic to be driven into oblivion. I recommend that we reaffirm our faith in and relationship with the one who first shed his grace upon America long ago and seek his Providential guidance.  It was good enough for George Washington, George Patton, George W. Bush and recently, president Trump who called on Americans to pray to God for His Providential guidance and forgiveness for our individual and societal shortcomings.  

As we embark upon a new year, we will also encounter a new era of American resurgence and leadership. I believe you will soon witness massive exposures in government and the taking down of the deep state, who’s swamp dwellers, like the British of old thought they were invincible.  If were not for the years of praying and seeking forgiveness for allowing America to fall so low that she would choose a snake like Obama for president, this nation would now be on the road to nowhere fast.  But wise American believers from all walks of life took the Biblical verse 2nd Chronicles 7:14 to heart.  It reads. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 

Dear reader, fasten your seatbelts because it is going to be a bumpy ride on the road to America’s recovery, but fear not because the swamp will be drained, and our republic will truly be the land of the free and home of the brave.  God Bless America and may America bless God.  Be blessed as I Blow Away the Myths and Reveal the Truth weekday mornings via The Edwards Notebook on KCKQ AM 1180 Reno, Nevada at 6:30 AM EST and throughout America it’s on www.shrmedia.com or www.americamatters.us or www.talkamericaradio.us.  The Edwards Notebook is also enjoyed overnight weekends on 60 radio stations in 28 states just after 4:30 AM EST, 1:30 AM PT also emanating nationwide from flagship station AM 860 WGUL  Tampa, Florida and everywhere else  at www.am860theanswer.com.  Last but certainly not least, It is The Ron Edwards Experience talk show, every Friday at 1:00 PM PT, 4:00 PM EST on AM 1180 KCKQ Reno, Nevada and worldwide www.shrmedia.com, also www.americamatters.us, www.talkamericaradio.us and Spreaker.

The Real Face Of Racism In America

The Smithsonian Institute is a perfect example of the real face of racism in America. I have said for decades that when it comes to racism, one not need to look any further than the Democrat Party. Also, there are numerous progressive groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center where members, just like those in the Democrat party pretend to love black people. In reality the feelings of Democrats and others like Southern Poverty Law Center members are fully exhibited in the horrendous policies they continue to either foist upon or promote for black Americans. The Black American community has been decimated by the effort of racist white progressives from Margaret Sanger to Lyndon Johnson to con blacks into accepting a lifestyle that is destructive through welfare and deadly via abortion.

Other evil sub groups including academia and liberal churches that have abandoned their ordained mission of true salvation, have led literally millions of Americans (particularly Black Americans) astray from the wise council and guidance of the God who shed his grace and blessings upon our republic. In fact, many church leaders have in recent years been acting as if there was no commandment calling for us not to lie, especially concerning what is right or wrong according to God’s word. It seems as if people on the progressive left have no conscience when it comes to any topic whatsoever.

I will never forget the high level of anticipation a few years ago so many people including myself had waiting to see the movie Lincoln. Because of the level of understanding I have of the life of president Lincoln and the time in which he lived, I just knew for certain there would be at least a reference to one of the greatest American historical figures, Frederick Douglas. Not only was he a widely recognized abolitionist, but arguably the greatest orator of the 19th century. Douglas overcame insurmountable odds to succeed in business, as a successful author and friend of Lincoln as well.

I stupidly thought, surely Douglas would receive a modicum of respect. I was utterly disappointed beyond belief that Frederick Douglas was not even mentioned in the movie. I could not help but laugh at the fact that the racist gaggle of progressives that created the otherwise well done movie gave focus to a historically insignificant black female who was making one of the white male characters happy in bed.

The bigoted slight against Frederick Douglas spoke volumes about what the progressive who run Hollywood, like most democrats think about great American men who happen to be black. The reason behind such a liberal oriented slight is a bit more complex than just surface level disdain or bigotry. Historically, the movie industry along with history book editors have seen fit to engage in a mission to keep from view, positive images and stories about real Black American male historical figures such as Lewis Latimer or Frederick Douglas. For another example, the media never, ever told Americans about how Lewis Latimer perfected the filament in Thomas Edison’s light bulbs so they could give light for much longer than a few minutes. For the life of him, Edison could not figure it out, but thanks to the media blackout against Latimer’s achievement, Edison was free to take credit for the long working light bulb.

To add insult to injury recently, the Smithsonian Institutes progressive bigots purposely omitted Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from the African American Museum. After a bit of a reaction to their bigoted act, they gave him a little mention in a comment about Anita Hill. I do know that if Justice Thomas supported the harmful progressive policies that have devastated the quality of life in the American black community he would have been granted a prominent spot in the museum. I look for the soon to come day when the progressive, bigoted people and their wicked philosophy will no longer have any influence upon the black American community or our republic overall. The progressive bigots must not be allowed to continue to wreak havoc in our nation, because they intend to ultimately cause societal demise. The results of the bigoted motive of destruction in America’s black community must be reversed and not allowed to permeate the rest of our republic. Because progressive bigotry anywhere can lead to progressive bigotry everywhere. If you don’t believe me, simply refer to the awful progressive inspired bigoted media coverage during the 2016 presidential campaign.
