2022 - Back to our Christian roots or onward to 1984?
By JR Harrison
As we look back at the past two years, it would be easy to say with a huge sigh, “At least we have those bad times behind us!” and leave it at that. Yet, as we turn the corner into the New Year 2022, we must recognize this is arguably one of the most significant turning points in American history. Will we continue with this Covid paranoia caused by a mysterious pathogen, an ever evolving virus, a supposed threat to all mankind and a chameleon-like enemy that we can’t accurately define let alone fight? Or, will we peek behind the curtain and find out what is really happening so we can succeed in putting the past two years behind us?
The 1984 Scenario – Behind the curtain
At Christmas I gave all my children George Orwell’s book 1984, a warning from Sir George about the dangers of totalitarian governments and where it inevitably leads nations. The book describes a continuous global war yet there is no true enemy; in fact, there is no war at all. Big Brother uses this imaginary and endless war to keep control over the citizens of the fictitious country of America, oops I mean Oceania.
As you read Mr. Orwell’s book, you will clearly see not only the trappings of totalitarian rule, but also a curious story line that describes very aptly what the entire world is now experiencing. In the book, just as in our nation today, the incredible power of fear – especially of the unknown - and what it did to Oceania is well documented. Now please reflect on how we have let our fear of the unknown allow our elected representatives to become our 'rulers.' We have fallen asleep at the wheel and let them become dictators who spew out pretended legislation not spelled out in the Constitution as within their power to control. The results are the tearing down of our American economy, our liberties and most importantly the creation of division within our family of citizens.
We all remember 911, the fear, angst and frustration: a hidden enemy, right? Think about this; fear of Covid is doing more damage than 911 fears ever did and in an incredibly shorter time period. As bad as those times were in 2001, it actually brought families and our nation together versus today where we find our contemporary civil war not only dividing family members, but keeping them at arm’s length while masking our expressions of love for each other.
As a result we find ourselves at a crossroads as we step into 2022. Good citizens are at each other's throats. Hate, fear, resentment resides just below the surface and with only the slightest prompting explodes with incredible force, further separating “we the people.” Parents have lost stewardship of their children, the government has control of all information, and the news media is spreading 1984-like propaganda for big brother. Are we not to the point where Nazi Germany was when well intended citizens spy on and report their neighbors to the "authorities?" “Those who forget history are destined to repeat it”- Right?
all lost or will we have a second chance? That my friends is totally
up to the US portion of the USA. As bad as it seems, let us
remember, God is in control. Today’s battle and accompanying
symptoms actually presents great opportunities when you consider that
God seems to work best through his people and offers the wisdom to do
so ...just saying.
solutions to these problems will not be found in Washington, D.C. or
even your State House. We the people must own the solutions, starting
with our own house and then by actively participating in the local
governmental process in some manner. At this grassroots political
level you are more personal and not just a number. It would also help
if the reluctant church were to come alongside the family in this
process as well and I'm not talking about simply praying and singing
praises to God. This is the who and the what in this proposed
change process for the coming year and beyond.
how is much more detailed to elaborate on in this article but suffice
it to say that in the public arena we the people must start by
personally informing our local government servants that they are just
that, servants. Secondly, these elected representatives need to be
reminded that they took an oath, which is sworn and sacred. That oath
is to protect we the people from the overreaches of the Federal /
State and even County “authorities” and intercede on our behalf
when necessary to guarantee our liberties and freedoms will be
when is now of course! History informs us where this downward cycle
of freedom ends when power goes unchecked. It ends in tyranny. Let me
translate that for you: quite simply, it ends in slavery and bondage.
The state becomes the "daddy" not only over you but more
importantly over your children and grandchildren.
The Devil is in the Detail
During the month of January, LastCallradio.live will be providing expert advice and direction on exactly what all of this reclaiming of America might look like. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of tuning in to this Saturday morning talk show to learn what “The doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates” is all about and how the local Sheriff and/or local grand juries can assist in this great task before us. Let us declare that 2022 will be a time in our lives where we set the stage and determine the path “we the people” will take.
perhaps it is time for that much ballyhooed reset. But in order to do
this correctly, we must recognize that this transformation can only
be done by digging back down to our nation’s Christian roots. That
means getting back to following the “laws of nature and of nature’s
God" because as we all know “where the spirit of the Lord is,
there you find liberty.” Amen
