If one will study the nature of all my conflicts whether with Mr. Alsup, the banks, the clients, the critics, and the BOP it all comes down to my stand for truth. If you are at all familiar with the scriptures you will see every prophet or saint who stood for truth against a culture of lies was met with conflict and suffering. This is such a truth that it could be said that if you are not in conflict you are not in battle. Our founding fathers ultimately got to enjoy victory but most had to pay a high price to arrive there. Somehow history always will call into examination your courage or cowardice. Truth will always offend a culture bent on fraud. A culture bent on fraud is an effect of leaders long since sold out to fraud. This means those in power who benefit from the fraud will put on the hat of a tyrant and with fear bring the crowd with force. A fortitude of conviction will be the only thing they cannot overcome. If your convictions do not have the surety of eternal absolutes anchored to the unchanging attributes of God what will you stand upon when the ruthless world is against you?
The revolution 200+ years ago was an impossible task but because of divine providence success was assured and a fledgling nation was born. God’s providence is just as assured in our day. If you know of God as faithful your confidence cannot be vanity. Faith is an action word that will respond to God’s words of promise that make His providence clear for our day. Faith is a gift most often triggered by the word of God that most likely will be absent understanding. This does not mean a blind faith because the word of God is trustworthy. What it does mean is that the surety of the trustworthy word is sound enough to take a step without full knowledge of the path. For those who want reason to give them every assurance of probability before action this faith is nothing short of risk. My question though is if God gives you the faith and the word to initiate is it really a risk? The answer to this question will come from your knowledge of the God who verbalizes propositionally. The reason you have never seen me shrink back from the escalation assault upon my stand for truth is because real truth cannot be defeated by the lie. Fortitude and truth is a weapon wielded with strength and purpose.
