The Quick Scan by Mike Ramey



      In one of my recent columns, I discreetly pointed out that the job of the mainstream mess and social media is to elevate bad news and push good news off to the side.  Thus, when you go through the headlines of the day on your electronic device, expect the bad news and adjust yourself accordingly meaning that one does NOT have to let the bad news ‘creep in’ and be a part of their mental make-up.

      Can we be honest?  The WOKE (Weirdly Obsessing Kooks and Evildoers) folk are doing their level best to talk people out of believing the obvious—and are NOT succeeding.  Thus, they hope to ‘win’ new converts to their ‘religion’ of lies and half-truths by turning up the volume and putting more dollars into play to get people to admit that they are right, and those who can think for themselves are wrong.  It’s just that simple, when you get right down to it.

      Folks, do NOT let the ‘alphabet mob’ agenda become your agenda.  They represent a VERY small minority of the known universe—a VERY small percentage.  Remember: Goliath yelled and screamed at the troops of the young nation of Israel years ago.  His rage went on for a number of days.  Then, a young David arrived on the scene and took offense at Goliath’s talking ‘smack’ about the Lord his God.  In short order, David had a rock concert, powered by the Holy Spirit.

      David lived to become the King of Israel.  Goliath—didn’t live, period.  Further, David took Goliath’s head right off his shoulders…with the giant’s OWN sword!

      In the New Testament, there is a similar example.  The Apostle Paul had been preaching the Good News—the Gospel of Jesus Christ—in pagan territory.  Folk had turned away from their old, sin-filled lives (which is what true repentance is) and turned to the resurrected Christ which Paul proclaimed.  Folk stopped heading out to get drunk; stopped committing fornication and adultery, and either burned, threw away, or stopped buying ‘idols’ of Diana and other evil gods.

      Quick Scan Point: An idol is ANYTHING that has more power in your life than God does. 

      Of course, those who made money enslaving others did NOT like to be losing money.  The merchants of evil like to see people enslaved while they ‘cashed the checks’ and lived in the suburbs.  To intimidate the Christians, they hauled one of Paul’s helpers into a stadium, pumped themselves up with rage, and shouted for two hours: “Great is Diana of the Ephesians”.  Of course, God protected his servant.  The local public officials ‘broke up’ the meeting and Paul’s man was freed.  He stood his ground during the shouting, protesting WOKE bunch of that day, trying to ‘prove’ their god was better than his God—the Living God.

      These ‘three by five mental midgets’ who are hell-bent trying to call wet water dry are enslaved to their ‘gods and idols’.  They are demonically possessed.  They are worshipping their sex organs (or, lack of sex organs); their altars of climate change, political corruption, CRT or what have you.  They are a SMALL minority…a flea in front of a bullhorn, trying to intimidate people with their shrieks. Further—if they truth be told—if one of their kids showed up at school or home spouting some of this garbage, they would be met with the board of education applied to the seat of understanding.

      The ‘alphabet mafia’ are chained to their agenda—and they want you to be slaves with them!  Misery not only loves company, but it will also work overtime to ‘draw in’ more suckers for their belief system.  Sure, they can yell and scream and threaten.  Maybe a few will resort to killing with the weapons that they ‘claim’ they don’t believe in.  Sudden death—sudden glory!  Stand your ground for righteousness!  Remember: there WILL be a few who will admire your stance for truth and will want to come to you by night like Nicodemus did Jesus.  Once they see your witness, they will want to know how they can be free. 

      YOU can point them to the same God who freed you!
