There seems to be an increasing level of frustration, arguing, and backbiting appearing on the Constitutional Emergency Discussions. I am very concerned that we are allowing our enthusiasm to wane; that we are taking our frustrations out on each other.
There is no question but what the initial turnout was disappointing. We must make an even greater effort! Try, if you will, to put yourself in Col. Riley’s shoes. This man spent years in honorable service to his country; now, at 76 years of age, when he should be able to enjoy his "golden years," he has once more had to offer up his life for this nation. Think about how disappointed he must have been on May 16, when the 1.8 million who had committed to attending had shrunk to 1000. Yet he never wavered. He marched on with the small army he had.
To those who have suggested we need new leadership, I say: Col. Riley has never deviated from Operation American Spring’s purpose:
1) Oust the "Dirty Seven" - Obama, Biden, Holder, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, and McConnell;
2) Restore our Constitutional Republic to what the Founders intended it to be.
That, Patriots, is what we need to be focusing on. Not on issues such as the environment, birther argument, or the legitimacy of the Iraq war. These other issues, while they may very well be important, WILL NOT FURTHER OUR CAUSE. We must stay focused. We must put forth even greater effort. We must not allow ourselves to bicker and fight amongst ourselves, for a house divided cannot stand. WE MUST UNITE, AND STAY UNITED BEHIND OUR CAUSE.
Ask yourself: What can I do? Can I find a way to go to Washington, D.C., even for just a few days? Can I do more in my local area? Most of us are already calling and/or emailing our representatives and senators, talking to family and friends, and printing up flyers to pass out. Think: What else can I do? If you can get together with other Patriots, do it. We all can do better with the sharing of ideas. For example, another Patriot came up with a simple way to spread the word that I had totally overlooked: Leaving a flyer with your tip in restaurants (thank you, Maria!).
We are in a battle against evil forces that would destroy our beautiful country. The damage is already very grave; we have no time to waste.
I will leave you to ponder some quotes that illustrate the great change that has come upon our nation over the last fifty years:
"Ask not what your country can do for you; "The Constitution is a charter of negative
ask what you can do for your country." liberties...it doesn't say what the federal
government must do on your behalf."
"A rising tide lifts all boats." "The rich must pay their fair share!"
-John F. Kennedy -Barack H. Obama
Oops. Accident. All right! I made a mistake. Don't chastise me. I am still better than BO?
Folks we need to do three things
1. Because this may be bigger then us, we will need God's Help-Pray
2. All hands on deck are needed- Meaning All conservative radio shows WE NEED YOU NOW. Get together with ONE voice supporting the people and Listening we have great ideas, TOO!
3. Many of us are exhausted, that is what they wanted, so we suck it up and continue, let's beat them through wearing them out, and keep on them, lift up your brother or sister and get them OVER the finish line, we are Americans and we can do this. Ok, the sleeping Giant took a nap, wake up and let's get er done!
For those not involved, get involved, get into a Tea Party and SUPPORT OAS, A neigh and myself just sent them $$ they need to be supported we can't expect other Americans to do all of the work and pay for everything themselves, HELP others by doing or financially. WE NEED TO UNITE!
3. Many of us are exhausted
DUH. THIS IS WAR.
Ask God for refreshment them give them Hell.
God's strength is made perfect in our weakness - To God be all the glory - May He be the victor and we more than conquerors :)
Lift your arm. Not too bad.
See, BOI stinks without lifting his arm. From 100 feet away.
Jean, I went to Bull Run - strange experience - definitely not what I expected - returned feeling "lost" - have been seeking God constantly since the return. In another posting Gary Chisholm (I hope I got the name correct, please pardon me if I erred) gave a link to a video relating to developing World War III. The truth of that video has eaten at me all day. And then the reality struck. We are not getting even as much as we deserve for how we as a nation have treated God! Our sins against a completely holy God are heinous. The decadence in this nation is absolutely disgusting. One man on FB said he didn't care as long as he could have all of his porn. And how about those of us who claim the name "Christian"? Please understand I have to look at myself first. Okay, we want constitutional order restored, but what about the great commission? Why should God honor us and fight this battle for us? How have we as a nation treated our neighbors - as we would want to be treated? I really don't think so. Are we really repentant to God? That's where Daniel had to start. Just some meditations to share.
Maria: You are right, just like we always quote "If my people which are called by my name would humble themselves, and seek my face and turn from THEIR wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven..........." But, another powerful promise is at the beginning of the book where HE tells us to bless a "certain group of people" and he would bless us in return!!!! Between these two scriptures lies a definite "game changer!" :)
I believe it to be a good thing that my heart is so full of remorse for my own and the my nation's sins against God. It seems to me to be a time for sackcloth and ashes. The "America" we thought we had was a sick façade, one of destroying others for greedy gain. No wonder so many have such strong contempt for this country and what they understand of Christianity. I just pray for God to order my steps and to give me wisdom that I will really show Him to others.
I've been starting with myself and my household. I am so utterly dependent on God for all of this. I hope Americans wake up - that God will wake them up - and be turned. I am right with you that if it was not for Col. Riley's Christian stance there would be no way that I could be yoked with this.
We had a Congressman in VA Randy Forbes, Pattie and I had the opportunity to go up to DC and Pray with him. He has a Picture in his office of Daniel in the lions den. Randy said, :look where Daniel is looking up to God and NOT at the Lions. This is going to probably be the biggest test of faith we have had. Know there are others praying too! Giving up is not an option!
Amen, Each day offering self to God as a living sacrifice, take up the cross daily. Onward Christian Soldier :-)
I was in D.C., part of OAS, the first week.
The written mission, phases with its assumptions need to be formally assessed by leadership since we all know at the minimum that:
We all agree it is vital to restore a Constitutional Republic.
