The Saddest Part…

Well, it looks very much like corrupt Republicans in Congress are about to anoint a king, 53 – 47.  (The rich guys who bought Moscow Mitch are certainly getting their money’s worth.)  It breaks my heart.  I loved our Constitutional Republic.

But the truth is, the United States of America isn’t the first country in history to fail and devolve into some kind of monarchy or dictatorship.  I believe that anything begun dishonorably is destined to fail.  Slavery was our dishonorable beginning.  Greed has been our unforgivable sin.  The fall was inevitable.

The thing that makes me the saddest, though?  THIS:

American Royal Family...
Apparently, the best the U.S. could do as a “royal” family…

is our new “royal” family…

My friends tend to agree, I’m being overly concerned.  They insist there’s something, somewhere playing out that I can’t see that will swoop in and save the day.  I’ve been wrong before, of course.  Maybe there IS something going on that I can’t see.  So, I keep an eye out for…whatever.  Anything.

Here’s a possibility: “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.” Revelation 13:5.

Do the math.  42 months equals 3 and a half years.  ImPOTUS has been uttering proud words and blasphemies and exercising his authority for, almost exactly, 36 months, now.  That puts the end of Trump in July, 2020…

Granted, if you know the story, things go downhill from there…

But I’ll tell you this: when the only glimmer of hope one can find comes from a 2,000 year old storybook, one does not feel sanguine about the future…
