Some Thoughts on Washington
Some reflections on what is now happening in Washington:
For those not aware, some violent protests have erupted in Washington D.C., in part over the Georgia runoff elections in which it appears that two radical Democrats have won, putting the US Senate into the hands of the Democrats. They and the Republicans now both have 50 senators for the next two years, giving Democrat vice-president Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote.
Of course if you rely on the leftist mainstream media you will get a decidedly one-eyed and blurry-eyed account of what has been happening there. The message of the left and their media sycophants has always been the same: ‘Trump and his supporters are evil, dangerous fascists who are a threat to democracy. This protest simply proves that they are out of control, and we must do all we can to make sure they never again are given any power or influence in American political life.’
Needless to say I reject that radical spin. Plenty of commentary already exists on what is still unfolding in the nation’s capital. Here I offer some quick thoughts on the situation there, as well as the bigger picture. It includes political, social and spiritual reflections. I follow that with the thoughts of some other commentators. Here are my main seven thoughts on this:
-I of course do not endorse or condone violent protests and rioting – whether over election results or for any other reason. But there are numerous reports of at least some radical leftists being involved in what has happened at the Capitol Building that need to be looked into and not dismissed out of hand.
These reports are buttressed by many eye-witness accounts. This includes participants who witnessed Antifa and other militants exploiting the situation – even being bused in to foment trouble. And Trump of course has already called for the demonstrators to go home.
-For four years now the very same folks denouncing what has just happened in Washington have been promoting and excusing and encouraging violent protests over the election results of 2016. Cities have been burning all around the nation, yet the media pretended it was not happening. The lamestream media is of course up to its ears in this hypocrisy, as are far too many others.
-If, as it appears, the radical Democrats (the most radical bunch in US history), now will control the White House and both houses of Congress, we can rightly ask if this is the end of the land of the free and the home of the brave. Can America really survive much longer?
Everything we have feared will inevitably and exponentially ramp up: the war on the Constitution; the persecution of Christians and conservatives; the radical left takeover of the courts; the slaughter of the unborn; the diabolical sexual tsunami; the war on marriage and family; the rewriting of history; and much more. The outlook is exceedingly bleak.
-As such, Never-Trumpers have a lot to answer for. Indeed, they may even have blood on their hands. Those who call themselves Christians and conservatives may now rejoice in what they have brought about (ensuring Trump is given the boot), but any shortcomings of Trump will pale in comparison with what we will now witness in the US. Sure, these folks may feel really good about themselves, and pat themselves on the head thinking they have kept themselves politically “pure” – but at what price?
And any claims by them that they did not want the Dems to get in ring hollow. There were only ever two real choices: these Trump haters with a bad case of TDS knew full well that if they were going to oppose him in every way possible, there could only be one outcome: a win for the Democrats. There never was some third option. It was Trump or the radical left in charge for the next four years – end of story.
-In nearly seven decades of life, I have never witnessed such out of control darkness descending upon America and the West. I have been observing things for a long time now, and this is the worst it has ever been in my lifetime. It breaks my heart to see all of this happening.
-Spiritually speaking, we may well be witnessing the withdrawal of God and his protection from this once great nation. The sins of the land cry out for judgment, and most churches have been part of the problem instead of the solution. Widescale repentance is our only hope. As such, all I can do now is cry out to God: “Lord, have mercy, and give us all grace to endure the spike in demonic darkness that surely lies ahead.”
-My hope cannot be in politics or in a political messiah. No man and no party – no matter how good – can ultimately save us from the disaster we find ourselves in. Only God can get us out of this mess. And the truth is, things may get a whole lot worse before they get any better. But God will always be my hope. He is my light in this overwhelming darkness that we find ourselves in.
Let me close with three comments by others. The first two remarks were found on the social media. Robert A. J. Gagnon said this:
With the likely election of two hard-Left Dems as Georgia Senators we now see even more vividly the folly of Never-Trump and Biden-supporting leaders from among Evangelicals and conservative Catholics. Now the First-Amendment-destroying “Equality Act” will certainly become law; and all court appointments will be hard Left. Should Clarence Thomas have to leave the Court within the next 4 years (or the Dems are successful in packing the court), their victory will be complete. The negative impact of the “Equality Act” will be with us for the rest of the century and beyond (until Christ returns), affecting with draconian intrusive state policies generation after generation of believers who will be increasingly oppressed. And still we will hear no admission of guilt from these same Christian leaders.
And Don Feder reminds us that we must keep fighting:
POST-GEORGIA – TEARY-EYED OR STEELY-EYED?
We are defined not by our victories, but how we handle defeat. As Churchill said, “Defeat is never fatal. Victory is never final. It’s courage that counts.” There’ll be plenty of time for post-Georgia postmortems. For now, we can wallow in self-pity — throw up our hands and say America is lost — or roll up our sleeves and figure a way out of this mess. The oh-woe-is-me conservatives will say Democrats stole another election, so there’s nothing we can do. (Truth be told, thanks to Stacey Abrams, they had a better ground game, and too many conservatives, infected with defeatism, sat it out.)
After Pearl Harbor, imagine Nimitz and Halsey saying: They have more aircraft carriers and better fighters and dive bombers. What can we do? The Japanese now control most of Asia. What can we do? Their ally, Hitler, controls all of Europe, except for England. What can we do? (What we did was the Doolittle raid, Midway, the Coral Sea and the Island hopping campaign from Guadalcanal to Tokyo Bay.) As Don Corleone says after he slaps a weepy Johnny Fontane, “You can act like a man!”
On the plus side, there’ll be a civil war in the Democratic Party. The moderate socialists will want to go slow (with an eye to 2022); the radical socialists will want it all now. AOC and company will try to primary everyone to the right of Kim Jong Un. With the presidency and both houses of Congress in regressive hands, there’ll be no excuses.
Finally, an article by Edward Welsch on “The Long March Ahead for the Real Right” is worth quoting from, offering a look at the way forward:
Our faux right is used to playing a theatric oppositional role. They have long been the Washington Generals to the left’s Harlem Globetrotters—“beautiful losers,” in Francis’s phrase. The electoral battles are a distraction to the governmental managers—that cadre of the permanent bureaucracy that is called the Deep State—who are eager to drop the pretense of representative government and get back to managing their subjects.
And manage they do. This new class justifies its position by either magnifying existing threats to the public or inventing them out of whole cloth to keep up demand for their services. A whole slew of scientists, economists, social service workers, and bureaucrats are on hand to save us from the wretchedness of global warming, the calamities of COVID, the perils of white privilege, and the ruin of systemic racism.
The therapeutic managerial ideology is based on the idea that the American people, especially the Middle Americans of red states, need to have their mentality reformed. The therapists must root out any last vestige of ethnic preference or resistance to foreign immigration, which, in the case of those of European ancestry, is to be considered racism. This group of social inferiors also need to abandon any commitment to Christian morality, which is to be called intolerance, particularly resistance to the normalization of homosexuality or of the gender dysfunction known as transgenderism. And they need to drop any resistance to the globalist neoliberal and neoconservative consensus, which sends their jobs overseas and their sons to die in pointless wars abroad. This opposition is to be demonized in the one case as socialist, and in the other as unpatriotic.
The genie of the managerial revolution is not likely to be put back in its bottle. Fortunately, however, the “woke” anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-American ideology that marks our managerial class is not a necessary feature of this revolution. It is there because the cultural right adopted a doctrine of laissez-faire, limited government, while the cultural left went on to seize the reins of power uncontested and to define the managerial elite’s woke ideology.
This fight is not over—because the real right has not yet begun to fight. If there is to be a single aim for a post-Trump right, it should be to contest the present managerial class’s cultural influence over our society. We must make our own march through the institutions of government and education. With the blessing of Providence, we may be able to expel the “woke” ideology that now divides the American people and to enshrine a new unifying creed: one nation, under God. https://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/the-long-march-ahead-for-the-real-right/
God have mercy on America and all of us.

Sincere appreciation Bill.
Clearly preachers are doing too much ear tickling for Pence not to realize that Almighty God is a God of justice, as well as of love. How wonderful if the God honouring and courageous Ted Cruz were the current Vice President.
And yes, photos of those involved in the violence at the Capitol Building are of the same faces clearly recognizable in photos of violent Antifa rioters.
Trump’s rallies and supporters are always peaceful – despite the heart-breaking injustice of rampant election fraud, which will be breaking our Father’s heart also. Indeed He will be very, very angry about this massive onslaught of darkness. Woe!
The following important video provides further insights on what is playing out in the U.S., with shattering implications for us all.
Bill it’s been an interesting time indeed!! And of course the armchair experts of the voting system in America has been amazing in their ignorance just because they ‘hate’ the ‘orange’ man. Unfortunately, I think that Trump could have done better if he didn’t trash talk everyone that didn’t let him get his own way. But haven’t said that there are two strands of the ‘Evangelical’ Church that are at fault – the Far Right wing that would cause insurrection no ‘matter what’ which represents are Cult Like mentality that says Trump is their savior. The Second is the abysmal “Prophets’ who kept on having their ‘dreams’ of prophecy about what God showed then about Trump winning the Election – The Church at large should call these guys out for what they are – False Prophets – eg Not even close – They have made a mockery of God and the Church. These are the guys on the big Christian TV Networks – most would know how they are. As a Pentecostal I still believe that God Speaks today – But! and I say ‘but’! None of the these book selling ‘dreamers’ prophecies are tested. But they continue on their merry way on the Christian TV Networks and of course their books are sold in our ‘Christian’ bookstores. I think this is a wake up call for the Church – There is nothing like a little persecution to wake it up. My prayer is that it’s time for the Church to start focusing on the Right things eg the Gospel, Repentance and not being like the world and pray for Revival—– After all the real Commander in chief is Jesus Christ and it’s time to take the orders and get real.
Curtis Bowers is right. Many false prophets in Christendom.
Great summary Bill. Stayed up all night to watch everything in the US and everything you say is correct. For the last year we have seen the left celebrate and endorse rioting, violence, looting, criminality all in the name of justified protest!! Give me a break. What happened in the US with a million people in attendance was nothing in comparison. And to hear the lame steam media there and here claim Trump incited the violence are just wilfully ignorant and deceptive.
Your best yet Bill…dismal and all as it reads. “As such, Never-Trumpers have a lot to answer for. Indeed, they may even have blood on their hands.”
I for one have been gob smacked by some…a few only fortunately… with whom I am in contact……who should know better ..who have been afflicted with a sheer hatred of Donald Trump… Unbelievable… as if every other US President has been a saint ! I repeat what you have written…the question however is, Will they admit to their poor judgement ..when it all unfolds so badly…or will it be ” business as usual”?
Well, if I am correct and the abomination that makes desolate standing in the holy place is the redefinition of marriage then all that really needs to happen for that prophecy to be fulfilled is a change of government in Israel. The way the political dominoes are falling and given the political situation in Israel, that could be quite soon.
I think most people who understand scripture already realise that churches’ postion on marriage and the associated issues of sexual morality are already separating the wheat from the chaff.
Funny how the leftist media forgot what happened the day Trump was inaugurated. But this is o.k., right? First amendment and all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDryrRYxpeY
I had difficulty listening to Tony Jones on 3AW this morning calling President Donald Trump a danger to the USA. This is the same man, who 4 years ago could not fathom how the “deplorables”, could possibly vote for Trump.
Jesus Christ is still Lord and Sovereign. Take heart do not fear, for the Lord is in control, nothing escape him. Come Lord Jesus, come!
Thank you Bill an excellent overview of these events.
America has got what it wished for.
Thanks Bill for continuing to shine the light , its a pity there seem to be few pastors in Australia willing to speak up.
Perhaps John Miller is correct – the ‘West’ has been ‘handed ove’r to receive what they’ve longed for , perhaps Gods’ mind has been made up and we shouldnt pray for our people or nations just as God told the Prophets concerning Israel , perhaps we have crossed the line…….and judgement is now inevitable.
Repentance must start with the Church.
The tragedy is that >75 million Americans and their families have been disenfranchised – cheated and stolen from – and they are deeply distressed that a blind eye has been turned to this diabolical fraud by the Supreme Court (which lost no time weighing in to redefine marriage), the Vice President = the Establishment, the other RINOs in office (Republicans In Name Only), as well as almost all media, big tech, big business etc.
The swamp was to be drained in President Trump’s (= non Establishment) 2nd term, and there has been all out determination to ensure that doesn’t happen.
For example, there is a ‘John Roberts’ on Jeffrey Epstein’s guest flight records to Epstein’s island. Epstein’s guests were wealthy and influential and if the John Roberts on the flight lists is in fact Chief Justice John Roberts, he most certainly would want President Trump gone, so swamp draining doesn’t happen.
Please may we all hold before our Heavenly Father in prayer the very, very many hurting and devastated Americans.
I think back to my school years (public- not many could afford private in those days) when in year 6 my teacher would pray with us every morning. My heart breaks for our world now. We were asleep at the wheel and stayed out of the public square too much, praying we can reverse this trend now – I am seeing much more politically engaged young adult Christians around me so I am praying for them
“God have mercy on America’ and the Western world should be included as never before has the West accepted the wholesale slaughter of the innocent and the assassins are all of us who pay taxes to pay the killers; marriage has been given over to homosexuals and deviants – “do not give pearls unto swine for they will not know their value” says the Christ. What greater pearls are there than children, family and marriage? Homosexuality is accepted as normal as is adultery making us all satanists – being contrary to the will of God. Will God have mercy on us? Why should he??
It is being said that if it wasn’t for Pence, no-one would have been killed, and truth would have had a chance to prevail over the blanket of lies.
So terribly sad!
If it was antifa to all I can see why the objections to certification were to be today what better way to prevent any talking about the fraud or possibility of evidence of it leaking out than to create a distraction.
If people on the right were involved, while I condemn violence, I understand their frustrations. For decades the government has raped and abused them and for generations our freedoms have been taken and no-one stops it. Now a election was stolen, I’m sure they hid enough of the fraud so that we couldn’t prove enough to overturn the election but we know it happened just the same, people reached a breaking point. Governments never seem to learn you can only push people so far before they fight back. If they go full steam ahead on their agenda it will only end in war. God help us if war comes I think we are angry enough that a French style Revolution is closer to happening than a American style one. So much of the church knows little of God that a French style Revolution would be justified by them as being God’s punishment on the wicked.
I believe, though I am NO prophet so don’t take this for more than my opinion, in the next few months something will break through and God help every man, woman, and child of faith when it does! We may soon only have him and fellow believers to lean on.
The first taste of things to come has appeared. From now on ( according to Nancy Pelosi) all prayers uttered in the Congress will be sealed off by pronouncing not only “AMEN” but also with “A-WOMEN”.
That just shows their total ignorance. The term “Amen” has absolutely nothing to do with “Men” per se but is a response and an agreement and roughly meaning “So be it”. What a start to a new era
The abomination of desolation is a likely a sign of the times.
To my thinking any fake god like those Solomon and his wives adored.
Any crime that is in conflict with The First Commandment.
E.g. The pachamama earth worship godess that was adored by individuals during the Amazon Synod even at the Vatican itself… right on Peter’s high altar.
What an abomination.
Of course earth worship is in part key to what the new world order reset is about.

I came here to make sense of today’s events, after watching Channel 7 News’ distorted version of it. It saddens me to see America, a country I have some affection for, so polarised.
Thank you Bill, your summary of what has taken place in Washington DC over the past 24 hours sure puts it into perspective. Your insight on all that has taken place gives a balanced description of all the Marxist attempt to
gain control over the greatest free nation on earth. From one moment to the next we can’t help but think it is all over. Yet there are voices coming to our attention as they have for you in this summary of events, that make it clear they it is not over yet, the best is yet to come.
Alan Pemberton it is not ignorance but rebellion. Will they never learn? Look at what happened to Pharaoh, Haman, Jezebel and all the other rebellious people described in the Bible.
Denise Cameron, every word you say is tragically true. Our evangelical, chorus singing Christian friends who would never say a unkind word about anyone, but who focus on Trumps human frailties, whilst remaining blind to the wickedness of Biden/Harris duo, will not have to wait long to see all that have predicted come true.

John Adams, second President of America said,
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people.
Were he alive today John Adams would say that the threads of the Constitution had decades ago been stretched to breaking to break point.
Adams also said,
‘There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution’.
‘Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty.’
America now has a one party Marxist state.

Questions About The Chaos At The Capitol That Desperately Need To Be Answered
With the coming persecution, that seems to already have a solid root in the UK and Australia, although you all would know better, this quote seems to be of use for all of the western post-Christian nationals as we now have not anchor for Christian Freedom:
“Down through history you have a wrong idea of martyrdom and persecution. You think that these men were persecuted and martyred for their sincere faith in Jesus Christ. That was the real reason but no one heard that publicly. They were martyred and they were persecuted as enemies of the state, as bigots, as narrow minded stupid people who had fallen for a rouse and could contribute nothing to society. Your suffering will not be noble. So your mind must be filled with the Word of God when all people persecute you and turn on you. This is no game. – Paul Washer (~2015)
These barbarians are not democracy supporters. These barbarians are not Trump supporters.

Note the ‘hammer and sickle’ tattoo on the left hand of the thug on page 12.
John Miller is correct. In fact it’s true that a country inevitably gets the government it deserves. All the commentators are on steroids today. But let the dust settle. America fought for its independence and survived a brutal civil war. So let’s pray that President Biden will be successful in reuniting the country. It’s a tall order. He may not be a Washington or a Lincoln. But he needs to lead. Where, is the big question. But as I say lets pray for him and America at this time.
Yes, there must have been Trump supporters in the Capitol building. The ones without the face coverings.
Such as the lady carrying the sign ‘THE CHILDREN CRY FOR JUSTICE’. (Image page 2)
Such as Mrs Ashli Babbit (who was shot dead), a Military Veteran of 14 years.
Beyond awful on so many levels.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Holds a Press Briefing
Despite what the left portray him as, Trump has proven to be one of the most peace loving Presidents in a long long time.
He is the first President not to go to a new war since Jimmy Carter, and even sought to withdraw troops significantly scaling back involvement in existing conflicts.
With the Senate 50-50 it’s likely that some of the time a vulnerable Democrat in a moderate state will vote against the left’s wishes but then that would sometimes be cancelled out by at least one moderate Republican voting the other way.
We would be better to pray for all those babies at the pointy end of a suction curette on whom Joe Biden has ramped up the war, than pray for Biden to “unite” the country John Bradford ! Do you really think God will bless and “unite” a country which kills so many innocents created in His image? Long may it remain “disunited” while these wilful murders are perpetrated on innocent human beings! Unless Joe Biden recants on his persecution of the unborn ..and their defenders… there is no hope for “unity” .. Do you seriously think God- fearing Americans should desert their unborn brothers and sisters in the name of “unity” …give up, lie down and take it from Joe Biden ? A Joe Biden who so hypocritically calls for peace just a few months after he refused to denounce the ongoing Antifa riots ..looting, burning,, killing, destroying … saying Antifa was “just an idea”…not an organization!” Well they were “organised” enough to infiltrate the Trump supporters at Capitol Hill…just look at the footage and the recognisable faces ..and tattoos…Would a Trump supporter have a hammer and sickle tattoo on his hand? 600.000 lives were lost in America in the war against slavery. I believe the American pro-life movement has been remarkably forbearing in the war against abortion these past 40 odd years…but not forbearing enough hopefully to ” unite” under a psychopathic President as they now have.
Regarding the alleged violence, much of what’s been presented appears to be MSM propaganda not reality.
From what I’ve read there were perhaps a couple million peaceful protesters in Washington, and only a couple hundred who entered the Capitol. Whether those who entered were all Trump supporters, or whether some of them were Antifa, is unclear. What has been shown on video is that a group of protesters – either unarmed or only holding cellphones to record, attempted to enter a locked or blocked door and a cop safe behind the door shot Ashli Babbit even as heavily armed police moved up behind those seeking access. Said officer is now on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated. While vandalism – damaged or broken windows or doors may be grounds for dismay, it is on a completely different level to Antifa or the BLM’s arson, looting, violence, and murder, Sadly the Left has defended the latter, and decreed mostly peaceful protesting by the Right to be domestic terrorism and celebrated the killing of Babbit.
We live in an increasingly Dark Age.
I know you weep for America, as I do, knowing we may be heading down a terrible path. With insane statements like that of Hank Johnson, Democrat Congressman from Georgia regarding the treatment of President Trump after he leaves office, (You can probably see it on youtube), it will indeed be a ‘cold winter’.
I hope that all the tried and true prayer warriors around the world are clinging to the “ROCK” now and submitting heart felt prayers for America, Australia, UK, and so many more countries.
Sometimes we are allowed to go around the fire, but often we must go through the fire.
Grab your Spiritual Armor and prepare for the Spiritual Warface ahead of us.
Hate to sound morbid but given who we face I have no choice there are 5 Republican senators who could be in very big danger they are in states with Democrat governors and should anything happen to them the would be replaced by a Democrat. I have seen the left operate much of my life so I would put murder past them to gain a majority in the Senate. Right now Joe manchin (sp) a democrat is the only thing to keep them in check. But his state’s governor is Republican so killing him won’t help them but the could threaten family and if he still won’t play ball on or more of these 5 may have something happen to them.
They only have complete control for two years so they will work fast.
Already they are comparing conservatives to Nazis saying Nazis are human and killing them is like killing a rabid animal. The called the Jews, and others, animals in WWII and we had the holocaust. Could a conservative holocaust or purge be about to take place???
God is still on the throne and has allowed the evil to seemingly triumph for a time! Lets not focus on what Satan is doing in the world, but at what Christ is doing in His kingdom. We have yet to see how this pans out. God absolutely HATES the arrogant evil doer and His time is short! Please join me in praying that some of those evil doers in government will be converted and wont make the numbers to carry on their evil deeds. Psalm 9: “the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands” Yes Lord, let it be so!!
Those of us who have a memory of life seventy years ago would never have dreamed that America and Britain – indeed the rest of what was formerly Christendom – would have slid into the degree of moral anarchy that we see all around us, resulting in the dismemberment of marriage and the family; huge numbers of children living in poverty; the murder of untold million babies in the womb through abortion; the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, principally amongst the gay community; rampant drug addiction; widespread mental illness and suicide; a breakdown in discipline in schools; millions of children either being sexually abused or abusing other children; hundreds of children wrenched from their parents, put into social care, and sold off through the adoption agencies; sex trafficking; paedophilia; satanic ritual abuse; a rocketing violent crime rate and domestic violence, principally in gay households; a fundamental breakdown in societal trust and loyalty; prison populations that are growing at ever expanding rates and the persecution and martyrdom of Christians, on a scale never seen before. Behind all this is Satan using Marxists who in turn are using militant feminists, homosexuals, humanists, pagans and useful idiots to destroy all sovereign nations.
To those Christians who believe Biden will unite America and produce a stronger, more stable and yet more open and kinder global society, I predict that his inauguration will be only the first sip from a bitter cup which we shall all be forced to drink for the rest of our earthly lives. We all live now in an open concentration camp in which there are no outsiders. So check in. Get your identity chip and queue up for your daily rations.

Thanks for your analysis here, and reflection on recent events. I will read this more closely a second time. I will also pass this onto a small group of friends here in Australia who had or have been encouraging ourselves with the thought that Trump may prevail against odds, which is now looking increasingly unlikely. He may or may not have one last card to play. I never really publicly supported Trump until the US November election, when a younger friend made a comment against him. (It has never been that he is so wonderful; but that his enemies are such a nightmare in comparison.) I always said that ‘what I liked most about Trump was how he got up the noses of the politically correct. He gave them apoplexy.’ But with hindsight, it appears many of opponents were able to put aside their discomfort and channel their hatred with unrelenting attacks so as to remove him. To date little of there actions has been legal. The overwhelming case for the theft of an election remains unheard. The left dominated media has driven so much BS. We should watch their news to hear their propaganda; increasingly the real news we must get from other sources. I was thinking today, if the stolen Biden victory stands, then it looks like China may have won a war against the US without a shot being fired. And yes, their appears to be very significant grief in all of this for those of us who have being praying for a Trump victory, but it is very important to remember the exhortation in 2 Cor 7 v 10. Our Father is the vinedresser. Here is a video link which may have some value for some who have not successfully accessing alternative news sources. This was sent to me by a friend today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaxCdEcuN9Y&feature=youtu.be
Thanks for this article, Bill. You being American means you can give us Aussies plenty of perceptive insight on happenings in your native country.
Washington 2021 reminds me of Berlin 1933, when the victorious Nazis disguised themselves as their opponents, and burned down the Reichstag building, with the complicity of the security forces.
As to your last sentence David if it comes to that just crucify me in front of a jeering crowd. I would rather die like my Lord and feel the pain he felt than submit to that.
You can take my life but you can NEVER take my faith!

Just a glimpse of Calvary!
Great stuff Tom – many thanks.
Well I guess I have always been a person that sees a cup half full and not half empty. Before Trump came along the nations as are whole and especially the Christians were apathetic including Australia. Then along came Trump and true to his name sounded the Trumpet which certainly woke up the people and especially the churches. When Trump came on board it was like are stone thrown into the muddy waters with all the mud coming to the service where we could all get to see it. We could also see are glimpse of our future will be like if we don’t change our ways. Now if Trump came out of this as the great Savior of America then who would people worship? God or Trump. God’s ways are never our ways. It has always been about the church waking up and doing what we are suppose to be doing and that is to protect the peoples and the nations that our Lord is coming back for. We are his body on earth, aren’t we? So just where do we stand now. When we found out who was for Trump and who was against Trump we also witnessed the separating of the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats. Are great army was raised up from the ashes, who now know the truth and are prepared to fight for it. We have are 50/50 American Government and whilst many of us see them as 50% republic and 50% Democratic and now know that many of those republicans betrayed Trump does it not also stand to reason that there is going to be Democratic s that are going to go against their own because they too, do not want to see America fall anymore than we do. Don’t think for a minute that our Lord does not have his own people among the Democrats. Also Trump whether he gets back in or stays out will still be there behind the scenes just as Obama has been. In fact he may even do more good with are much more humbling spirit working outside the fishbowl and looking in, instead of the other way round. Satan is just not happy with Trump being booted out of the White House, he wants him permanently gone, why do you think that is? So Trump needs our prayers more than ever right now. No this fight is far from over, in fact it has only just began, and once we have all stopped licking our wounds you will see are new Army raising up, Christ’s army and they will be the ones giving the glory to God because at the end of the day he is the only one deserving of all the glory, not Trump. The churches over in America, the Warrior Churches have the numbers now and are already putting plans into place. All this had to happen to wake up God’s people. “All of God’s creation travails until the true Son’s of God reveal themselves”. So I think it is about time that we went back to that old hymn we all sung in times gone past. “Oh went the Saints come marching in, oh when the Saints come marching in, I want to be in that number, when the Saints come marching in.” We all want to be in that number right? And when I finally do meet my maker, I pray it is with my head held high, knowing I did not give up until the very end. We may have reached the ends of the earth with the Gospel but there is still a lot of wounded out there that need to be picked up and healed before this is all over. We have are merciful God who wants none to perish, the same God who used Jonah to send out the message of repentance to the Ninevehs if they did not change their ways. Jonah was angry at God for changing his mind after the Ninevehs repented and here was our Lord’s response. “But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left”. Sound familiar? The Christian churches have failed the people, like Jonah we all live under are vine feeling save and secure, but then our Lord who gave that vine took it away again. That vine is our churches, and if we don’t get out from under our shelters and engage with the people, then don’t be surprised if our Lord allows the devil to close our churches down. God is always in control, the devil can only do what our Lord allows him to do, we all know that. We need to earn the respect back from the people before we can make are change within our nations. They need to see that we are strong and not weak, we need to make are stand and then hold it till our Lord returns. No the fight has only just begun.
