How do we stop Communism? Pray!

Many clear-thinking Americans believe that Marxists are in control of our country — and that there is no reason to believe they will ever give up their power.

The question at hand is what can be done to remedy the situation we as a nation find ourselves in?

Dare to be a Daniel

The answer is clear. The strategy for survival of any society is repeated throughout the Holy Scriptures and must be applied today. We need to enlist this vital strategy to preserve America's freedom and strength. People of faith need to persuade decent, patriotic, God-fearing Americans to turn their hearts to God and live in a manner worthy of His intervention.

Christians must dare to be a Daniel.

Daniel stood firm when facing what seemed to be insurmountable challenges and circumstances. Believe in your heart that America is still reclaimable. Like Daniel, we must set a godly example, and give primary emphasis to seeking God's will in our own lives.

"We The People" must also take every opportunity to encourage others to do the same.

Because America was established by God to be a beacon of freedom, we must also promote peaceful, law-abiding citizen activism on an individual level. As our forefathers were ready to take on the responsibilities of "participatory" citizenship, so should those of us who demand nothing less than the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I believe God will hear the prayers and pleas of the humble and righteous who are willing to get on their knees and ask Him to spare our country.

Whole armor of God

If you are attending a church that does not have a daily Bible study guide to feed your soul, then it's your responsibly to buy one. Make sure you purchase a study plan that is age-appropriate for your family.

We can no longer be complacent and unaware of our spiritual condition. Rededicate and revive your faith. Don't become like the church of Laodicea. Listen to words of The Almighty. (See Revelation 3:14-21.) He offers you both praise and rebuke.

Many of God's people feel worn and weary because they are not wearing the whole armor of God. Every day, we see our cherished liberties disappear. They are being stolen from us as we tremble unnecessarily. We know that eventually, our pastors and the churches will be muzzled and undermined with unjust laws. Prepare yourself. Have a prayer on your lips to offer up to heaven.

Communist policies

Public hate and disdain for people of faith have been allowed to fester since this administration swept into Washington. In fact, it is promoted by the "progressive" ideologues within our legislative halls, public institutions, and the biased liberal media.

Excerpts from "Top 7 Marxist communist policies being implemented by Obama today," by Hal Licino —

"Throughout history, communist leaders have seized power by promoting themselves as populists, and often completely hiding their own ideology. Indeed, in a poll taken after communist Hugo Chavez' first election victory in Venezuela, only 3% of the electors believed Chavez to be a socialist, let alone a communist. Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a socialist.

"The initial stages of communization of a country invariably begin with seven basic steps:

"1. Seizing control over the free flow of the nation's money

"Obama has stated that he wants to convert the stock the U.S. government now owns in the nation's banks from preferred stock, which is the case currently, to common stock. This modification in type of stock may seem irrelevant at first glance, but under further analysis it is the single greatest communist policy the U.S. government has ever adopted: It means that the federal government will control all of the currently publicly traded major banks and financial institutions in the nation which are currently in the hands of individual shareholders. Not only will the current shareholders' rights be trampled, but the control of the nation's flow of money is the first keystone of communism.

"2. Stripping capitalists of their assets

"According to U.S. bankruptcy code, secured creditors such as the ones who have outstanding debt against Chrysler and GM have to be paid before unsecured creditors. That is the law. Obama has ignored this law, and seized the vast majority (89% in GM's case) of all "asset value" of the automakers and taken direct control or given it away for free to the unions. Karl Marx's theses were all based on the workers owning the means of production, and thus communism takes hold in America.

"3. Changing the structures of government to suit

"Obama has given the GOP until October to approve his health care plan, which many experts have shown would be as socialized as Cuba's. If the Republican Party does not meet his demands, the Democratic Party will simply change the very rules of the United States Senate to pass their legislation through simple majority, instead of the 60% which has been required by the Senate through history. Changing legislation to suit the leader is another common tactic of communist leaders from Chavez to Castro.

"4. Taking advantage of a crisis to impose communism

"Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel published a book entitled The Plan which would require (yes, require) young Americans regardless of their political stripe to serve in a direct copy of Hugo Chavez' red-beret local militias. The Plan also promotes massive taxpayer funded programs as universally-free university tuition and health care, as well as tax reform to ensure that the middle and upper classes are crushed by the enormous new government expenditures. Obama has already admitted such a 'soak anyone making over $250,000/year' punitive tax policy. Emanuel is famous for his quote 'you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.... [it's] an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before,' which is the prototypical process whereby communists seize power — witness Lenin, Mao, Castro, Tito, et al. (Full Article)

"Thy will be done"

The man in the White House is being unfaithful to his country and to God. President Barack Hussein Obama thinks only of his own earthly ambitions and pernicious ideology — Marxism. We are admonished to pray for our leaders. Please place the president and his full cabinet on the top of your prayer list, and pray for God's will to be done. (See Matt. 6:9-13.)

It is time for every born-again, traditional Christian to network. All churches should plan a day to bus into Washington D.C. for a full day of prayer and repentance before the Lord. Ask Him to once again set the "captives free" and "heal and restore our land":

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14).
