“Night Watcher” #2 / Politics

75364021-1200px Another piece moves on the political chessboard. Kamala Harris for Biden V.P.! The mystery of who the Democrat Queen would be, revealed! The Queen is now in play.

As a “watcher” concerned about one main thing, the Kingdom of God in the earth, what might this move mean? My first thought is Biden chose well, or more likely, someone chose very well for him, because Biden is nothing but a Trojan Horse and Kamala is the real candidate.

Kamala appears to be a true “little guy” defender. Her story reads that way, and although she says outlandish things at times, such as “Trump is a criminal in the White House”, she is smart. And she has proven her ability to draw a line in the sand and recognize some kind of “balance” and “limits” as to how far we go with a thing. People do respect those who have the backbone to say I’m not buying everything you’re selling. This is acceptable, and this is not! So she shows an ability to reason with logic to a point, and many will be attracted to that. Her strength, logic, ability to communicate her points, and her personal story. But then there is also the Democrat platform itself.

All this combined with the platform of helping the “little guy” does appeal to a great number of people. Now here’s my point, church… all this greed and prosperity we’ve been preaching while ignoring serving our fellow man in need has created a pretty large “wealth gap”. And people are very tired of it. They might even be tired of it enough to take a chance that the Bernie Sanders Democrats might deliver on their promises. The rich are getting richer, and the gap bigger. This has always been a formula for uprisings and chaos. As our middle class shrinks, anger grows.

“The little people”, as we are called, are those of us who live very close to the poverty line, or barely maintaining a good lifestyle by way of credit cards. It’s a life of stress, desire, and struggle. A growing anger is building.  Why does everything cost so much? The Universities. Do you realize how many people there are who are buried under school loans? They see no way out! They are sick and tired of the struggle! Parents feel guilty! They are ready to overthrow a system that creates financial bondage!

The struggle for health insurance. The little guy strains his wallet every month trying to maintain some kind of health insurance, and then when they need it they still end up way in debt! Buried in medical bills! And it continues to be a problem even in retirement! Do we take care of our elderly? My dad retired with a nice package from Chrysler, but that package today has been downgraded, and only so many can find those jobs. My wife and I have no such package, and we are many.

At the age of 65, I had to roof my own house because it can’t be done for less than $7,000 if I hire professionals! And I have a small house! (1300 sq. ft.) But a professional “anything”, whether doctor, veterinary, mechanic, plumber, lawyer, carpenter, electrician, teacher, they all need to make big bucks to maintain their desired life style, and pay for their building and tools. (School loans). (Etc.) Therefore, all those who do not have such a life style can’t afford them! And this “money” frustration is obviously growing.  This money desire is a fire ready to burn this Capitalist system to the ground, whether the frustration is justified or not.

Personally…God has always taken care of my wife and I. I spent my life seeking an education in the University of God. I function a different way. Like Paul, I am very content whether I have little, or a little more. I don’t believe in excess. Let your moderation be known in all things. But most non-Christians have a materialistic hunger that must be fed! And today, most Christians seem to have that same hunger! There is nothing to bring a spiritual balance to the earth and curb the hunger, except maybe New Age religion, and people are flocking to it!

So…welcome to America in 2020 and a perfect storm. This is how I see it anyway. These are critical times. If the church continues denying the true power of God, then voting is our only hope of maintaining some kind of balance to our future. But if the Progressives win, lookout! Major change is on the way! Hate speech will sound from every corner! Revenge is a plate best served cold! Ice cold hearts will prevail! And if God keeps me here, I intend to still be watching and writing as I see it, but my target is the church more than the kingdom of man. My way of “fixing things” is by way of salt seasoning the whole, and changing things by way of “heart”, not laws.

The Queen is in play.
