2021: "Reset?" Or "Revolution?"

Push Button to Reset the World

The first 7 days of 2021 will determine the direction of America for at least a decade---probably more.

Tomorrow Georgia will decide whether the US Senate is controlled by the far-left radical Democrat Party or the Republican Party. 

Mr. and Mrs. Obama, Oprah, and other far-left so-called luminaries have been campaigning for the two radical far-left senate candidates in Georgia.

Wednesday, the Electoral College votes will be formally presented to Congress for certification---certifying that Joe Biden is the next President of the United States.

However, as of yesterday, some say as many as 140 House Republicans---that's right, not 2 or 3 as some predicted, are expected to formally object to the votes, and between 11 and 16 senators are expected to join them---numbers well beyond the constitutional requirement to force discussion and a vote regarding the integrity of the ballot count of the presidential election.

Be informed, not misled.

As many of you know, I took last week off---I needed a break. Thank you to all of our readers and radio listeners for your unfailing financial support during our week off. You knew our budget continued. Thanks for standing with us in that regard. And thank you for standing with us in this new year.

With the chaos, so-called pandemic, and deepening culture war, 2020 produced more questions than answers. And 2021 finds millions of Americans wondering what lies ahead---particularly regarding our faith and our freedoms.

On New Year's Eve, President Trump spoke to the issues and the accomplishments of this past year. It's 13 minutes and 33 seconds, but well worth the time to listen and watch if you haven't seen it.

Author and poet Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote, "Ring out the old, ring in the new...The year is going, let him go; ring out the false, ring in the true."

Isaiah the prophet said of the Lord, "Behold I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."

The poet and the prophet tell us to let go of the circumstances of the past---former things, because God is doing something new.

The prophet was inspired by God, the poet was not. But the poet understood the importance of knowing the "Truth."

Many are asking, what does 2021 hold? 

Tuesday in Georgia.

Tomorrow Georgia will decide which political party will control the US Senate. 

The two Democrat candidates are far, far-left, but said to be leading or about even in the polling.

Interestingly, 79 % of Georgia identifies as "Christian", with 38% identifying as "evangelical" Christian---meaning they really do believe and, with God's help, practice what the Bible teaches in their personal life.

The issue of "life" alone should decide this election if the people of Georgia vote according to how they say they believe.

Both Democrat candidates are extremely pro-abortion. Including the one who is a pastor. Pastor Raphael Warnock---pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta---has repeatedly expressed his belief that abortion is consistent with Christianity and he has proclaimed he will "always fight for reproductive justice."

Both Democrat candidates are both aggressively pro-abortion and both hold socialistic views.

These beliefs, linked to the growing hostility toward biblical Christians and biblical teaching on the sanctity of life and marriage as only between one man and one woman---and the rejection of same-sex relations based on biblical teaching, should cause the election to be won by those who claim to be biblical Christians. 

Should the Democrats both win, the Democrat Party would hold the majority in the Senate. They already hold the majority in the House.

Thursday we'll learn more about the presidency.

"Ringing out the false, ringing in the true."

This Thursday, when the Electoral College votes are carried into the chamber of our Congress for certification, as many as 140 Republican Representatives, and at least 11 and as many as 16 Republican Senators plan to formally "object" to the votes based on allegations of election fraud.

These numbers are well beyond the constitutional requirements to force the issue of voter fraud to be examined and investigated if necessary. 

Senator James Langford (R-OK) said Saturday he and others are proposing an electoral commission of 11 Republican Senators who would look into all the irregularities of the 2020 elections.

His proposal is modeled after the commission formed in 1877 to resolve electoral issues in the election in Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina where there was no clear winner.

Langford says, "We're demanding that we have a good, hard, serious look at this..." 

"We're doing our constitutional duty," he says.

But Senator Ted Cruz said yesterday that he has established a coalition of 10 other Republican senators to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election. Instead of simply "objecting" to the certification, his coalition wants to see a "ten-day audit" of the results after "unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities."

Cruz also said he wished the Supreme Court had taken this case. Many of us agree. Sen. Cruz says they could have taken the case out of Pennsylvania or the one out of Texas.

And he said in both cases the lawyers had asked him to argue these cases before the Supreme Court. And he had agreed to do so.

The Supreme Court and its Chief Justice Roberts could not find the courage to do their job, in my opinion. 

The far-left Obama Court appointees rejoiced along with the far-left movement in our culture, while those whom many of us believed to be constitutionalists remained silent. 

Because the Supreme Court refused to hear the various cases that came before them, Cruz says that's why he believes "Congress has a responsibility to address the issue."

And he says: 

"Every member of Congress faces a dilemma. Frankly, two pretty lousy choices: one, we can vote to certify by not considering any objection" and Americans will 'hear us saying we don't think voter fraud is a real concern.'

"Secondly," he says, "almost all of us do not want  to be in a position where we're suggesting setting aside the results of an election just because our candidate didn't happen to prevail. That's not a principled constitutional position."

Cruz says, "We ought to resolve these claims not just dismiss them out of hand."



Yesterday NBC political moderator Chuck Todd grilled and mocked Sen. Ron Johnson about his support for what the news media is calling "the latest far-fetched bid to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory."

Perhaps there is some apprehension on the Left.

Yesterday afternoon Nancy Pelosi was re-elected as Speaker of the House, but the vote was the narrowest margin in 20 years.

The US Army announced this weekend that President-elect Joe Biden's inaugural celebration will be considerably smaller as organizers have canceled the parade that traditionally takes place after the ceremony

The Army's email simply said, "The Inaugural Parade has been canceled." 

There was no specific indication as to why. Perhaps Biden is physically unable. Or? Who knows.

Later in the story, it's noted that Biden wants a much smaller "footprint" for his ceremony and the parade will be "reimagined." Whatever that means.

Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. Thankfully there are those things that cannot be shaken.

Heaven and earth will pass away---but God's Word will never pass away.

All hell may break out in our culture, but the gates of hell shall not prevail against Christ's church.

We will keep you informed each day, here and on the radio.

Together we will ring out the false and ring in the true.

And remember, God is in control.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.
