SATAN’S WAY: DIVIDE AND CONQUER

My fellow Americans…..and those around the world reading this…..I have something very important to say and I hope this blog goes viral because it NEEDS to.  It’s all about our politics here in America (and Europe). 
I watched very carefully how during Obama’s era, so many were lauding him as a savior; the “left’s ‘Messiah'”.  I watched the left media talking about him using insane rhetoric – like this man “could do no wrong.”.

Being over here on the right – we were being fed a different story by the media.   We on the right were enraged about Benghazi, and Obama’s discrediting of Christianity, gun owners and so much more.  Totally opposite of what liberals or progressives were hearing.  And they laughed at us, much like we are laughing at them today.

Now, I’m watching the opposite happen with Trump.  The right media now has the “tickle up their leg” about Trump, just like the left media had with Obama.  The left media is inflaming negativity about Trump and his administration, just like Fox News did to us during Obama’s 2 terms.

But the truth is this – we had one man – Obama – who wanted this nation to turn into a New World Order nation – one that is a socialist nation with the rich elite at the top eating fat off the backs of the hard working citizens of this nation – left or right – didn’t matter.  Trump says “whoa buddy – put on the brakes.  I wanna see the great America I know and love return to how it used to be.”

We on the right are scratching our heads as to why the left also wouldn’t want this.  I mean, if you’re in my age bracket – middle aged, grew up in the 80’s – how couldn’t you?  We lived through a wonderful time of prosperity and abundant jobs and peace and housing booms and materialism.  Suddenly now America is evil?  Capitalism is evil?  Christians are evil?

I know, this leftist mantra has been around for at least the last 30 years, but it wasn’t so prevalent.

Anyway – my point is – how do we know for sure what the media is telling EITHER SIDE?  How do we know that it’s truth at all?  Because I can tell you this – it seems very odd to me the amount of division that has ramped up in this nation (and around the world) in the last 9 years and it’s NOT getting better.  It’s growing far worse – DANGEROUSLY WORSE.

Who can we blame?  The media.  And then ourselves.

They play on our emotions.  They play on them HARD.  They get us happy, or they get us so angry and livid we are ready to rip someone’s face off.

IT’S CALLED PROPAGANDA.

And it’s one of Satan’s FAVORITE tools.

Since this nation started, he moved right in and wanted it destroyed.  Why?  Because we ARE a Christian nation.  We are the LAST Christian nation.  And he wants us destroyed.  And guess what?  HE’S WINNING.  Why is he winning?  Because we aren’t thinking with our heads any more.  We are thinking with our hearts.  And what does scripture say about that?

Jeremiah 17:9
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
Are we letting ourselves be deceived?  Let me ask you a question….
How did you feel about the recent epic battle between Judge Jeanine Pirro and Whoopi Goldberg on THE VIEW?
Did it make you angry?  Did you FEEL justified by Whoopi’s rage?
If you felt anything over this, other than understanding that 2 very strong personalities on the opposite ends of the spectrum were bound to have a serious bout on TV, then you fell for it.  Don’t feel bad, I did too.
Or how about this – do you hate Donald Trump SO MUCH that just to hear his voice or read his name makes you cringe?  If you do, don’t feel bad, we on the right feel the same about Obama.  If you have such strong feelings about either of these candidates that one or the other makes you boil inside, then Satan has you – it’s called HATRED.
But this is what I’m talking about.  They, the media, get us in the feels.  That’s right where they hit us and we become VERY passionate about how we FEEL about different things that are happening.  And let me tell ya – these media folks are EXPERTS at this these days.  And they DO have an agenda.
DIVIDE AND CONQUER:  Satan’s best laid plan for destruction since the garden of Eden when he divided man and God through Eve’s disobedience – all the while Satan said “did God REALLY say…..?”
How do we stop ourselves from falling for this emotional puppetry?
I’m going to use a phrase that I believe was a common phrase used by Tony Robbins in some of his self help plans:  WHAT YOU FOCUS ON, YOU GET MORE OF.
Turn OFF the social media.
Turn OFF the news that only talks about politics – it’s really nothing more than a bunch of talking heads spewing their OPINIONS and feelings to you, riling you up one way or the other.
Turn off your emotions and start asking yourself REAL questions about what you’re hearing.  Questions like “does this sound reasonable?”  or “Does this sound logical?”
Start putting yourselves in others shoes when you feel like fighting about a passing story that will be forgotten in another month or so.
STOP the finger pointing.
STOP the name calling.
STOP the insinuations and innuendos towards anyone who disagrees with you.
STOP, DROP AND ROLL.  Ask yourself while on social media – “would I have the guts to say this to this person, that I don’t even know, to their face?”

Look around and ask yourself, can I get along with people in person (not online) who disagree with me and my feelings?

We need to get back to basics – before the web, before social media – and we need to start looking at others in love and compassion, and understanding.  Believe it or not, those words we say hurt.  They hurt others, they destroy, and they are NOT of God.
Start practicing this and see if it helps you be at peace and not feel so negative towards your fellow citizens of this great nation.  I’m going to as well.  Lets all start holding ourselves more accountable to our words and actions – before it’s too late.  Surely you DON’T want to see this nation destroyed, do you?

Mark 3:25 

And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
James 1 19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
Proverbs 14: 29 He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,
But he who is impulsive exalts folly.
Amen?
Peace to you all, today and every day.
