Today’s Pondering~Scared yet?

In the Bible, God tells us over 300 times not to fear. He reassures us through Scripture that He is in control and that we should not fear the things that man will attempt to do to us as we live out our lives here in this world. I fully believe that God wants us to feel secure and safe, but I don’t believe He wants us to be stupid. This is why I am writing today; to ask you if what you are witnessing out there in “the world” has finally instilled enough healthy fear into you that you will open your eyes and take a good, honest look at what’s coming.

The events of the last several weeks…months, for that matter…should have you in a frenzy if you are paying attention. This is why it is important to be lucid at all times. The devil is, in fact, lurking around and using his minions to keep us in bondage to the “fake” blessings that his world offers. And so, if you are someone who is easily appeased or amused by the things you have been able to earn here; i.e., wealth, success, status, etc., then you will probably think that everything just fine. I assure you, it isn’t. I am a huge skeptic. I don’t believe things easily. That’s why it took me nearly thirty years to have a deep and meaningful understanding of God and who He is. That’s why I don’t enjoy politics or anything political. Because I don’t believe in things that make no sense. Watching the events of the past week have only further solidified my belief that there are people out there who are so corrupt that they would blatantly lie, cheat, and steal while everyone is watching than to play fair and risk forfeiting their ill-gotten gains.

If nothing else, the fact that our Congress just impeached a President for absolutely no reason should have you worried to death that they can, and will, one day be coming to your house and pulling you out to accuse you of something that you didn’t do. If they can do it to him, they can certainly pick any one or a group of us and do it to us as well. From what I hear, that’s the plan. The plan is to round up anyone who doesn’t believe as they do and put us into camps so that they can “re-educate” us. Since their indoctrination didn’t work on everyone, they have to use force to make sure that those of us who see through their crap will be on board with their agenda of normalizing un-Godly behavior, ignoring or exalting pedophilia, filling their pockets with the money we earn for them, and using it to pay off countries who have already perfected these tactics on their own soil. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN EVIDENCE OF ALL OF THESE THINGS, I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT YOU JUST DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS TRUE!

I am a practical person. I’ve earned degrees from one of the most liberal colleges in the U.S. as well as one of the most conservative. I’ve weighed the evidence and I see only bad things coming if America (or what’s left of her) chooses to embrace the ridiculousness that is parading around as “truth” these days. The election was stolen. There was massive fraud including allowing dead people to vote. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the President with regards to the January 6th incident at the Capitol building. There is, however, plenty of evidence pointing to the other side planning this farce. There is no evidence that the President did anything that warranted impeachment; this time or the last time. There is plenty of evidence that our incoming administration is filled with vile, disgusting people who embrace Satanism and pedophilia. This is evident in the level of censorship that has been occurring in social media as well as with the mainstream media. Those who are upholding it, are a part of the core issues and they do not want to be caught and exposed.

So, there it is. If you don’t believe it, I would have to guess that your tendency is to dig no deeper than what the mainstream media and those you allow in your Facebook feed show you. You must, if you want to know what is going on out there, do your research. Watch some other news outlets. And I’m not talking about simply switching from Fox to CNN. All of those are corrupt. Tune into RightSide Broadcasting, Newsmax, and One America News. They at least report both sides of the issues. I’ve even had difficulty here on WordPress with posting certain hashtags. I can only assume that this post will be taken down as well, but I wanted to at least say what I need to say to be sure that I’ve passed on the wisdom that I’ve been able to glean from looking into these things a bit further.

Before you get testy, you should know that I voted for Obama twice. And although I was deeply disappointed as he finished out his last term with a strong note of divisiveness and bitterness, I had still wanted Hillary to step up and take over until she turned and showed her true colors as well. I was not a highly political person until recently and I certainly don’t pledge allegiance to any political candidate. I choose my vote based on what God is showing me. I vote based on who is upholding the values that God would want us to uphold. I do not vote for those who have abused children. I do not vote for those who are abusive to their constituents. I do not vote for those who lie obsessively and take every opportunity to try and gaslight the American public with false reporting and the building of an unholy matrix of deceit. I have always had a natural distrust for our politicians. You don’t go into politics to help people and come out of it with million-dollar homes and a lifestyle that implies that you are some sort of celebrity. A public servant should be just that; a public servant. Not someone who comes away from their time in office with fat pockets and connections to even more wealth than they had going in.

If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I certainly wouldn’t have believed that our Congress was this evil. They have allowed the public to suffer poverty and the threat of homelessness while approving of sending millions of dollars to other countries to count fish or study gender. They allow our children to languish in our homes under the guise of a fake pandemic instead of letting them live normal lives and attend school without the encumbrance of a disease-breeding mask. They lock us in our homes and take away any real entertainment so that we are forced to watch a barrage of reports of them carrying out their evil plans to do away with the one president who has actually been working to untangle the mess of sinful greed and deception that they have been weaving for decades. All of this, and they’re just getting started. When they finally do take office, they plan to do much more harm. Will you allow this to stand? Will you have a choice? At what point will you turn and see that they are coming for you? Coming for your weapons? Coming for your Bibles?

You have most likely heard the story about the frog that has been placed in a pot of water who doesn’t realize that they are about to be boiled alive until the heat is turned up and the water starts to boil. This frog is you. We are in that pot, ladies and gentlemen. Some of us have jumped out and we are hopping around the kitchen trying to keep the “chefs” from completing their task of performing the full boil. Some of you, however, seem to really be enjoying this leisurely soak as though you chose to hop into a hot tub instead of a refreshing pool of harmless water. My advice to you is hop out now before it’s too late. There is nothing refreshing about their plans for us. It’s time to make some plans of our own.

My name is Rebecca Benston. I’m a Christian. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a writer. I’m a thinker. When I write fiction, I am usually writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. My P.I. character, Rona Shively is feisty, fearless and fabulous and is usually caught up in something she doesn’t want to be caught up in. In addition to this series, I also have a blog called Higher Ground for Life. Through this blog, I’m hoping to reach women or anyone who is seeking to develop a relationship with God and give them inspiration to get out there and follow His path for their lives!
I also have a blog called Leading the Follower. This one is my favorite. I write about religion, faith, spirituality and all that goes along with it. What we believe, what we don’t believe, what we are told to believe and how society feels about believing in general. I do a lot of testifying here and some of what I say may make you angry. Most of it will make you think. Some of it will make you cry. Any of it could make you laugh. It’s really up to you.
