Is Ted Cruz That Man?

I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Ted Cruz in person on August 9th in Pelham Alabama. I liked what I heard and I believe him. I have shared on this Blog that I am not a republican and certainly not a democrat. I have not voted for either since the 2000 general election. I find the voting for the lesser of two evils and the best person that has the best chance of winning to be an unbiblical principle. Therefore, the person I believed that most lined up with biblical and constitutional principles in the last 3 general elections was not a democrat or republican. I could not bring myself to vote for John McCain and Mitt Romney, both RINOs in my opinion anyway and not true conservatives.

But this time, I don't think I have to go outside of the Grand Ole Party. I believe Ted Cruz to be the presidential candidate that lines up in almost every way constitutionally and more importantly biblically. Ted is a professing Christian. He believes in biblically and constitutional (I'm still amazed at why more Christians don't think those two should go together). Ted is fully pro life, pro eliminating the national deficit and reducing the national debt, pro small government, pro second amendment, pro no amnesty for illegal immigrants, and pro securing our borders. He recognizes and says that he will counter every executive order made by our current President (which should be all of them, because they are all unconstitutional and illegal when applied to non federal workers, even though Obama is not the first President to do it). And what I also think is important is that Ted Cruz can unite Christian voters, Constitutional voters, Conservative voters, and-and Third Party voters.

Look, getting someone like Cruz in won't solve all of our country's problems. We need another Great Awakening in our country. We need to see hearts changed by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel of God's Word. We need to see repentance of nationally condoned and accepted sins of murder in the mother's womb, sex outside the bond of marriage between one man and one woman until death do they part, same sex marriage, and more. Our trust ought not to rest in "the right candidate" but rather the One True God Who created and redeemed His people to worship and enjoy Him forever. But God has ordained our type government in the United States, and we should vote according the biblical standards. Ted could be a sham for all I know, but right now and the best that I can tell, he is the "Real McCoy" that I think Christians should rally behind in the Primaries for starters. But that's the problem isn't it, even born again Christians for the most part getting behind the same candidate. I'm amazed at the criteria of many Christians for their consideration of President. And how a born again Christian can support a Jeb or Donald, let alone a Democrat is, well, I'm at a loss of words for this comment. As with sin, it's just the corruption in us all that still remains until the first resurrection. Or resurrection 1a for my pre-trib friends :-).

Not my will, but God's will be done!

Where Will You Be?

Good Morning:

I'm up early today. Because I have worked nights so much, I'm usually up until 2 or 3am and get up around 10 or 11am. I have a Hiatal Hernia and GERD so some times, like this morning, I get up early. But I do have a job interview this morning as well.

I like to repeat two motto's that I have regarding this ministry and blog: 1) Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, pray for God's will to be done; 2) I would rather be a fool for preparing for the worst and nothing happen, than to be a fool for not preparing for the worst and something does happen.

One aspect if this ministry and overall idea of planning for an economic collapse and whether an EMP will accompany that, is if we are out and about somewhere if/when an EMP event happens. Now an EMP event may not happen with an economic collapse, but if it happens it would likely contribute to one. An EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) event can happen one of two ways: 1) Extreme solar flares from the sun which numerous groups have said could happen at any time as reported by even the mainstream media; 2) An attack by any of several countries. Our country's enemies know what would cripple us most. Supposedly, if an EMP device detonates in a strategic location above out country, it would knock out most of  the electrical grid in our nation and fry the circuits on our vehicles as well so that we would nit be able to drive our motorized vehicles. Newt Gingrich is one of the people talking about this, but my understanding is that he is also a globalist and possibly a Bilderberger.

I have read from a source or two that certain vehicles that are older that 1980 will restart, but not those 1980 and newer. Now how many of us have a vehicle that old? And since they would not be antiques, how many of us could afford to buy a vehicle that old IF we could find one?

But the point I am trying to get to, and what part of this ministry is about, is what you will do if an EMP event happens while you are away from home? If you work outside of your home, how far away from your home do you go? Whether it is your job, at family or friends, picking up your children from school, going to the grocery store and running errands, on vacation, you would have to walk home if that is your designated location in the case of an emergency. It would be wise, if you're not already doing this, to keep water, some food, and a pair of walking shoes in your trunk if you're not already wearing them. What about small children you may have with you?

Again, many of you out there may think this is extreme and would never happen. Are you sure? What if God already has begun, or begins to judge our nation, thereby withdrawing His hand of protection from our enemies? What if the so called earthly powers that be have an agenda against Americans? What if the many scientists are correct about solar flares from the sun one day knocking out some or most of the nation's power grid. And what if this happens before the Lord's return regardless of the timing of the dead in Christ rising first before the rapture of the church?

I have already been praying that the Lord may be pleased to prevent a possible EMP event in His kindness and mercy. Join me in praying for that, but also prayerfully consider preparing for that if you're able in case it does happen in God's sovereignty and providence.

Love and blessings!
