We live in dangerous times. I think most of us don’t know how dangerous.
I watched an interview between Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Tucker Carlson. I was shocked to my boots. As AG Paxton was re-elected, he set about doing his job to uphold the law and expose wrongdoing. It got him into a LOT of trouble.
The Texas House impeached him. They scheduled a trial where he was not allowed legal representation. He was barred from his office and a gag order was issued upon him. They took away his income, but he could not go earn elsewhere. I wondered how his family survived.
He was acquitted. He plans to return to work to do the job he was elected to do. Now the Texas House members are facing investigation, but not by him.
Oh. My. Gosh.
This, on top of the Federal Government.
Who is actually working on issues needed to govern the country?
As I watched and listened, I was tempted to despair. Is there any hope when such things can be done in our government? Can order, law and justice be restored? Or are we doomed?
I contemplated that if the Left has their way, our energy would cease to exist, there would be no food production and the country goes dark as we go backward. Is that the plan?
Then China, or another enemy, can come in, develop the riches under our feet that we can’t touch, and eliminate “the masses” as they take over our land mass. Is this our future?
AG Paxton said we need to be courageous. We can’t give up the good fight. No matter what comes, we must continue to fight for what’s right. How would our great-grandchildren view us if we quit and abandoned their future? We must continue to stand up firmly—even if we fail.
AG Paxton is correct. We must fight for the good to the end. Perhaps American Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale’s comment still echoes down from 1776:
GIVE ME LIBERTY, OR GIVE ME DEATH!
We, as a people, may have forgotten our history, but God has not. He is the same God in 2023 that He was in 1776. He still promises that He will never leave, nor forsake His people. Read it in Hebrews 13:5. In the next verse, Hebrews 13:6, we read, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
“God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind,” (2 Timothy 1;7 NKJV). In some versions, sound mind translates to common sense.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9 NKJV).
So, my friends, be vigilant. Pray. Do deeds to honor God and one another.
Times may get still more dangerous.
