We’re living the Great Revelation; its affects will be no less profound than the 1st Great Awakening of the 1730’s and 1740’s.
Matt 10:26-28, “26) So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27) What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28) Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
One of America’s first celebrities, George Whitefield, connected the colonists to God and each other without the then church hierarchy. Benjamin Franklin, in his 50’s at the time, befriended Whitefield and enjoyed a lifelong friendship. Franklin, a printer, the “Drudge” of his time, printed Whitefield’s sermons. Franklin himself was a world renowned celebrity. One can say we were founded and led by celebrities.
The Great Awakening’s laid the foundation of our American character. The 1st Great Awakening fostered the second starting in the early 1800’s through 1830. The 2nd Great Awakening conceived the Abolitionist movement which in 1854 bore the Republican Party, after the Kansas Nebraska Act. This Act, coupled with the Dred Scott decision, created an insurmountable divide between slavery and freedom. The 2nd Great Awakening, ending in the 1830’s led to the end of slavery 30 years later.
Scholars studying the American history we make, will mark the start of the Great Revelation precisely and accurately to 3 October 2005. On that date, President George W. Bush nominated Harriet Miers as a Justice for the Supreme Court.
The nomination of Ms. Miers came after the resignation of FEMA director Michael Brown, who oversaw FEMA’s failed response to Hurricane Katrina. With the Katrina debacle fresh in the public zeitgeist, citizens delivered a swift, seismic reaction to the revelation of Bush cronyism for the Supreme Court. In less than one month, Miers withdrew. Bush revealed Republicans wanted cronyism, not competence.
One year later, Republicans lost control of the Senate and House. Two years later, Republicans lost the presidency to a leftist radical whose pastor of 20 years was revealed to be a raving, racist anti American lunatic. During the election of 2008, Americans saw the Republics living in Washington DC throw in with progressives and viciously demonize a conservative woman governor, Sarah Palin. People noticed.
President Obama revealed his true colors and governing approach when he told House Republican Whip, Eric Cantor, “Elections have consequences, I won.” People noticed.
Rick Santelli built on the revel, naming the stimulus protest movement the TEA Party. Not long after the stimulus, President Obama pushed through transformative legislation for health insurance against the will of Americans. Eight months later, the American public, observing the revelations of the nature of President Obama and the democrats, reacted giving the largest mid-term landslide election recorded in more than 100 years to the Republican Party.
In the lead up to the 2012 elections, Washington DC Republicans, despite consequential political gains throughout the country, repeatedly failed to fight the disruptive changes of President Obama. Later, Americans watched elites squander hundreds of millions of campaign dollars on failed get out the vote tools, leading to failed campaigns. We saw the cynical, jaded nature of the Republican consultant class and voter disdain.
The Great Revelation is that apt label for our times.
Today, many are looking for leaders and doers. The progressive movement for the first time is fully revealed and in retreat across the country at every level of governance.
Yes they have made gains because of the courts. But, like Dred Scott, each court ‘win’ becomes more pyric.
No single leader can be identified with taking back state and local government. In the less time than president Obama won two elections, the American progressive movement has lost 30 State legislatures, 30 governorships, and thousands of local level elections.
With each revelation, Americans, the moral doers reacted to blows received, with counterpunches. Bush cronyism fell first. Next, ACORN the progressive vote stealing scheme fell. Public sector unions sought to force themselves on all, and got beaten in WI. From union busting in Wisconsin led to Michigan becoming a right to work state. At local levels, individual citizens organize (Oath Keepers), protecting businesses in Ferguson. At a high school in Mississippi, citizens slapped a progressive judge around by singing hymns at a football half-time, despite the Judge ordering no hymns. All of us can throw sand in the progressive gears.
What’s the common feature in the age of Revelation? Each Revelation of Progressive abuse, provokes a counterpunch. The zeitgeist of our age is to acknowledge the revelation, identify the problem and counter it. Momentum shifts continually in this battle for Freedom. In the age of Revelation, the progressive movement is exposed for what it is, tyranny. When Americans identify a tyranny, they awaken. Some faster than others, but once awake – Americans change the world for the better – check the history.
