The Elephant in the Room
by Michele McCarthy
Back in the days of 4 channel T.V. I remember hearing an occasional, “We interrupt the following program for…” Following was important information that could not wait until the news hour.
I feel like I'm in the middle of a news bulletin as I write. I have not blogged in a while. What should I say? I could and should reassure my readers during these insane times that God will never leave or forsake them and that the battle has already been won by Christ’s blood? But, with that said, do I ignore the gargantuan elephant in the room?
It is tempting to put my fingers in my ears and scream “Lalalalala”. The yelling, the backbiting, the protests. Political tension, racial tension, virus tension. Hard to tell truth from the lies. I watch almost no T.V. and I quit watching the mainstream news a long time ago. But I have never quit praying for the leaders of our country.
Recently, I felt a nudge to look beneath the surface of current events. I searched out sources I felt I could trust. I listened to a variety of Pastors, and conservative, Christian world view leaders. I asked God to show me the truth, to help me understand how to pray for this hour.
Think on these things:
Why masks for a virus that is 99.9% curable?
Why close society if masks work? Why the push for mail in voting if masks work?
Why have people we know received letters they test positive for Covid, when they were never tested?
Why close churches and schools, but leave abortion clinics and liquor stores open and allow what the media continues to call “peaceful” protesting? (many voting sights are at schools and churches)
Why, for the love of ice cream, defund the police in the midst of rioting?
Why are board-certified physicians’ voices being erased from social media?
Who stands to lose if the pedophiles involved in the Epstein/Maxwell and other child sex trafficking groups are revealed?
Why, if you choose to monetarily support Black Lives Matter does the money go to the Democratic party and not to help black lives?
Why do George Soros, who wants to destroy America, and Bill Gates, who wants to depopulate the world, have a voice in our Government?
Children are being sexually abused. Businesses are being burned down. Flags and Bibles are being burned. Police officers are being killed. A drug that can cure Covid is being withheld in many places.
We are at war friends. Good vs Evil. Democracy vs Socialism/Marxism.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke.
So I interrupt my regular blog, twitter and Facebook programing…
yes, I am excited about my children’s book, Aunt Ida Clare that is due out in September. Yes, I would much rather write about Jesus and books. More urgently, after the election in November, I want to be able to write about Jesus without facing jail time
…to bring you important information that cannot be kept silent —words of awakening and warning.
Do your due diligence. Search out these matters. Ask God to reveal truth about what is happening in our country right now. PRAY. Speak out truth. Register to vote. Vote for the man who supports Israel, freedom of religion, family, and the lives of the unborn.
Live fearlessly wrapped in the peace of God which passes all understanding.
