You are probably wondering, why the title, Symbolism. Let me enlighten you. The primary purpose of this article, and its title, is to bring clarity to an event that took place during the horrific looting and riots that engulfed this nation to the point of chaos, and the heinous relentless attacks on those who can be classified as innocent bystanders, by those who would attempt to bring this nation to a tumultuous end. Thank God, their intentions will not come to fruition.
America the beautiful, has become, America, the unrecognizable nation. Why do I describe it as such? Well, this is no secret as to my statement. Everyone is quite aware as to what has occurred worldwide. It all began in Wuhan, China. That’s right, China. What started as an experiment, became a worldwide nightmare. This phenomenon, called, Corona Virus,(Wuhan Virus) began its deadly onslaught throughout the world. People began dying after contracting this disease, and when it finally arrived at our shores, pandemic took hold of our daily way of life. What made matters worse was the statement by a high official of the World Health Organization, who I may add, took his sweet time in reporting the findings of this virus. In addition, this individual, who has no medical background, but questionable virtues, declared this malady as a pandemic.
Immediately, the left, who has hated our President and his supporters, began a predicted attack on him, by blaming him for this most horrific death carrier. Mr. Trump declared an emergency, and allowed the local government officials to decide on the best way to combat this virus. Well, this suggestion gave many Governors, especially Democrats, new found tyrannical powers, and felt the need to shut down their respective states, as they pleased.
Suddenly, Americans found themselves confined to their homes, akin to house arrest, businesses were shut down, and all other non-essential entities, such as churches, clothing stores, malls, etc. What strikes me as odd, is the fact that, liquor stores, Planned Parenthood, cannabis (marijuana) centers were deemed as essential, thus allowing said areas to remain open. In addition, we were forced to wear face masks, and were told to stay at home, or face negative consequences.
When we are faced with a dilemma, many of us do turn to God. One of the primary methods of turning to Him, is by attending church services, praying along with our brethren, and imploring Gods mercy upon whatever tribulation we face. Sadly, we could not do that. The first words out of our Governor were, “DO not go to Church” What kind of advice is that? The Church represents refuge, convocation, gathering of believers in one accord, for the purpose of worshiping our God, and asking Him to intervene. Well, our Governor did not think this was essential. This idiotic thinking carried through in all states.
Easter, which is a very sacred season to us Christians, as it symbolizes salvation through the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was also canceled. And yet, she had the audacity to say that the bunny was essential. Let me get this straight. Does the Bible say that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten bunny? Of course not! He gave His only begotten Son! There you have it. To me, this whole lock down of the Churches is an attack against God, His children, the church, and also, an attack on our President. I would soundly advise those who would go against God. Your arms are too short to box with Him.
Surprise, Surprise! Once things began to wane, some of the restrictions were lifted, and some churches were allowed to open, but with harsh restrictions. Not all were this fortunate. In some areas Pastors were threatened with jail time should they choose to open their places of worship. Again, the powers that be, shaking their fists at God.
In order to appease and or perhaps look good, some state leaders, allowed the churches to meet, but with restricted attendance. For instance, if you have a membership of let’s say 100 worshipers, you’re allowed to have around ten people in attendance. Great, isn’t it? Another restriction that boggled my mind, related to how these Christians were to worship. You can meet, must wear masks, but singing is forbidden. Excuse me! We Christians don’t hum, as we don’t practice Yoga. Also, we do not chant. One wonders what else is on the horizon!
My warning to you modern Pharaohs, don’t rile God. As in ancient times, He is saying, “Let my people go, so that they might worship me.” Many of you don’t believe in Him, and some would question why a loving God would punish any one. True. He is a loving God, but you do not want to experience His wrath. You have been warned.
Let’s fast forward, to that horrific day, when a Black-American was murdered, by a rogue Police Officer. This was an uncalled action by this officer as well as the others who were present. Let me be straight. I support the men in blue, as they, on a daily basis, put their lives on the line, in order to protect us, and bring law and order. Every tree has a rotten apple, but please, don’t chop down the whole tree because of it. You are well aware of the ensuing consequences, resulting from this heinous act. I won’t go into detail, as these acts, carried out by haters of this country and what it stands for, attempted to destroy our way of life.
One act that really got to me, was the burning of St. John’s Episcopal Church, and the attempted destruction of this house of worship. I was angry, and totally surprised that this was not in the media’s narrative, as it did not garner much coverage. Having said that, I was greatly pleased when President Trump visited the church, held up the Bible, and stood there in defiance. The media called it a photo op. Right. That’s what they would want everyone to think.
Moses held up the Ten Commandments inscribed on those tablets, announcing to the people how they should conduct their lives, and how to live according to God. Our President, by visiting that Church, announced to the world, in a symbolic manner, that Churches, where we gather to worship the Lord, will not be burned, and that Churches will not be shut down. Holding up the Bible, just as Moses held up the tablets was in itself a symbolic act, whereupon we who are followers of the Lord, and the populace, for that matter, will adhere to the word of God, which is the Bible.
I was inspired by God to write this article, in its entire format. If it made you somewhat uncomfortable, I would suggest that you take it up with God. Remember, God loves you, and so do I. May God Bless America. May He also Bless you, and May He Bless Our President, Donald J. Trump
