I would remind everyone of the fact that Yeshua chose to manifest himself to Israel while they were under the rule of a foreign oppressive government, and yet he never marshaled or mobilized grass root support to challenge, replace or over throw the Roman occupation. In fact during the Sermon on the Mount he told those who were following him to do more than what was required of them by an oppressive law, when he told them to walk 2 miles instead of the 1 mile that a Roman soldier could compel them to do. (Matthew 5:41) Neither did he attended or hold liberation rallies to debate the legality of paying oppressive taxes. On the contrary he told those that questioned him on the lawfulness of the tax to pay their taxes with the statement “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,” found in Mark 12:17. Jesus Didn’t Have a Political Agenda And As His Followers You Shouldn’t Either Christians are not called to change public policy or to drive political agendas but we are called to seek that which is lost, and to preach the message of repentance and salvation; which once they take hold in the life of the convert, accomplishes the very thing it did not seek to accomplish. For if men and women are the moving pieces of our governmental machine will not that machine’s direction be changed once the hearts, minds and souls of those men and women are transformed? During our Lord’s first coming, he was singularly concerned with the people of his day repenting of their sins and seeking the kingdom of God rather than restoring their national sovereignty or freeing them from the rule of a tyrannical government. Yeshua came to accomplish the will of God and he understood clearly that the reason the nation of Israel was under the heel of oppression was due to the fact that they had turned from following the righteousness of God and as a consequence of disobedience, found themselves living in a world where the choices of how to govern their lives, finances and religion were no longer in their control. Ps 81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of m So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. Over and over again in the scriptures the principle that God uses oppression to turn His stiff -necked and rebellious children back to Himself is demonstrated. Psalm 78:1-64 Ezekiel 5:7-8 Deuteronomy 32:16-29 Jeremiah 7:12-16 Romans 2:8,9 The only hope that exists for those now living in the once great Republic of America, is to understand, that no matter how many concerned citizen meetings they attend, or how many We The People petitions are signed or created; the gradual and persistent erosion of America’s national and individual freedoms, liberties and rights shall continue to be taken away and at an ever increasing pace, until the light of the truth is shined upon the fact, that it is God who has allowed all these things to happen, because of the moral and ethical corruption of those who profess to love Him. Jeremiah 6:8-19

"Social Anarchy" is not the greatest enemy- the greatest enemy is Pres. Trump's abuse of power . Pres. Trump used police with gas and rubber bullets to disperse a peaceful protest, during which police who assaulted two Australian reporters who were simply doing their job; all for a photo op. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBPJNohU7xE Even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff apologized for his being there. https://www.wsj.com/articles/top-general-apologizes-for-being-at-trump-church-photo-shoot-11591885273 Pres. Trump's untruths, his attempting to be above the law are a far greater threat than any "Social Anarchy".

800,000 butchered, slaughtered, black, innocent, unarmed men, women and children in Rwanda while Bill Clinton lied, saying he simply didn't know. He Knew. The murder of our brother George Floyd sickens me. Head pinned to the ground with a knee on his neck, calling out for his mom, hurts, bad. Want to curse. Makes me cry out to GOD, WHY? 800,000 murdered in Rwanda. 800,000 murdered. Who cries for them?
