Spineless American Sheep!

May 16, 2020



The other day I saw an elderly man with a head full of white hair, holding up a sign on a street corner with a picture of a group of people wearing face masks. I missed the photo op, or I would have used his image with the sign for this article. As you may have already figured out, the sign read: SPINELESS AMERICAN SHEEP! I was shocked but immediately understood his stern message. It was a glaring truth.

To set the record straight, and so you don't get wrong ideas with my comments, I was born an American citizen on the island of Puerto Rico, as were my parents, and I love my country. I am very patriotic, so I stand for the flag, say the Pledge of Allegiance, believe and agree 100% in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, pay taxes, vote for good government, support our military and vets, strongly support law enforcement, and obey the laws of the land. I obey traffic laws (though not perfectly!), societal laws (except those that violate the Scriptures), and business laws. I am all for America and not against it in any way. I am against bad government and the violation of our constitutional rights. 

I know the title of this article and the picture is rough, but if we are going to fix some things in our country, we must face the inconvenient truth that during this Covid-19 crisis people were all too willing to submit to a controlling agenda that was oppressive and enslaved many to stupid rules and regulations. Some state governors and local government officials have showed their true colors by becoming fascist dictators!

When President Trump announced steps to take to reduce the possibility of infection, he never did it as the rule of law but as strong suggestions. He gave state and local governments freedom in that regard.

Unfortunately, many state and local governments went overboard and established laws and rules that were in direct violation of the supreme law of the land which is the Constitution, and of course, the Bill of Rights.    

During this so-called pandemic, most Americans acted like sheep and submitted to massive violations of their constitutional rights.

People that lived under the oppression of the Soviet Union (USSR) and communist China have stated that what happened in America reminded them of their previous lives under communist rule. I’ve never lived in those countries, but those that were under the control of communist regimes tell us that America slipped into a dictatorship mode and totalitarianism (some calling it fascism), even if for these few months.

Most Americans acted like sheep in that they followed their local government leaders even if it meant enslavement. Did you notice the mad power grab of politicians to control everybody and everything? Did you also notice that the more controlling and totalitarian dictators are the Democrat governors and the liberal local government officials? There is nothing democratic, and NOTHING that promotes liberty among them! Liberal and liberty are not anywhere near close to each other in definition and action, and are generally at opposite ends of the spectrum. Democrat, liberal, and progressive are the new titles for a totalitarian, socialist, and communist movement that wants to destroy our American constitutional republic and convert it into communist China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, or something that resembles the former USSR with a total government control over its populace!

As a side note, that is one reason I would NEVER vote for any Democrat, as well as the fact that they support mass murder (abortions until the 9th month- some even agreeing to putting the newborn to death as it comes out of the womb!), LGBT agendas, generally despise our military and law enforcement, and they support many ideas that would be damaging for our economy, churches, families, and businesses. The perverted and inhumane garbage they support is truly demon-inspired, and people that vote for them are being led by the nose into sin and death. Have you noticed the hatred and utter disdain among the majority of Democrats for God, Christianity, and anything to do with Biblical moral principles? They call that which is evil good, and that which is good evil! (Isaiah 5:20) The spirit of antichrist has found a home among their ranks. I am not saying the right wing conservatives have it all perfect, because they don't, but at least they respect our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and support many of the things we should support from a Bible perspective. But I digress, so let's get back to the sheep. 

What have these anti-American totalitarian regimes (state and local governmental officials) demanded? People were told what to do, what to wear, where they could go and not go, where to shop, and they sent our children home from school without consulting us and without any parental consent. They acted like they owned us, and we let them. We were subjected to the whims of politicians that closed our businesses and our churches. We were told how far to stand from each other, and to stop shaking hands. Local governments shut down our beaches and parks.

Again, we acted like mindless sheep that simply followed the crowd with no thought about the cost to our freedoms. We were treated like stupid sheep, and we mostly fell for it. Well at least the man with the sign I told you about, and many others have refused to buy into their socialist and dictatorial agenda.

What’s next for America when another “pandemic” shows up? Will they begin to tell us how many children we can have, what car to drive, and where to work? Will they chip us like dogs to read our body temperatures or will they make our cell phones their new weaponry to spy on us? Will they forbid churches, tell us the length they want a woman’s dress to be, and order us on what haircuts are permissible, and how to comb our hair? The North Korean regime mandates that for their populace! It is not out of the question for complete totalitarian control of government. The question is, will we simply submit to dictatorial rule and lose the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and Bill of Rights?

A totalitarian regime could be coming to America if we don’t take a stand NOW! Shed the spineless sheep mentality and become bold as a lion, as warriors that refuse to tolerate slavery and oppression. We need to fight for our freedoms and refuse to act like little sheep ready for the slaughter. We need to refuse the herd mentality and think for ourselves.

People have been quick to believe every grossly exaggerated news report through the perverted media outlets. All the media has done is spread fear and cause panic. Turn off their lying news! They made Covid-19 to be the mother of all viruses, and they have made it into an excuse to steal our constitutional rights.

The different yearly flu viruses plaguing our planet have killed multiplied thousands EVERY single year, yet no one puts on face masks and maintains required social distancing, and all the other irritating and economically damaging rules we have been subjected to with the Covid-19 outbreak. The CDC's own website states that in the USA: "CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010." So up to 61,000 die annually for influenza- or the flu. (The CDC numbers are false and misleading according to info in note (1) below.) Where's the running for a facemask and social distancing for that yearly flu "PANDEMIC"? 

Right now, many local and state governments refuse to open up economically and socially. They want to flatten the so-called "curve" of infections and deaths. The HUGE problem is that businesses may never recoup from the damage of this shutdown if it continues. The shutdown MUST end now!    

There is the government's mad push to get a vaccine against the coronavirus in place before the end of the year. Look, it took a long time to develop HIV vaccines. It took decades to implement other vaccines. Why should we all of a sudden be rushed into receiving an injection that deposits a little bit of the disease into our bloodstream? I don't think so! Do you understand that many could die because of these vaccines?

Will they attempt to force us to be vaccinated? Personally, I don't think President Trump would allow such a thing, but Presidents have often shifted in their policies in the past.

What if the government stated that they would force everybody in America to get vaccinated? That would be a huge mistake. If any attempt is made to coerce people to be vaccinated, all hell could break loose in this country, and blood could be spilled in our streets. 

Let's not be spiritually naive. Everything is pointing to the fact that something way more sinister is attempting to manifest itself. Satan is attempting to establish a one-world government designed by him to rule the world through his antichrist. It's as if Covid-19 is a trial run to see how far local, state, and the federal governments can push the people under their control. It is a globalist demonic agenda. The response to Covid-19 proves that if the pandemic appears to be bad enough, many people will easily give up their rights and freedoms. That is a very bad precedent.

As long as the Body of Christ is here on planet earth, we are supposed to be the salt and the light of the world. I am sorry to write that most of the church showed itself during this Covid-19 shutdown to be saltless and with little light. There were a very few exceptions to that, but mostly, we were weak and lacked the preservation qualities of salt, and we're not a light that pierces the darkness. We are supposed to keep corruption at bay and refuse to allow the enemy to take over the planet as long as we are here. Most churches complied with dictatorial rule and closed their doors with not even a whimper. 

Americans of all colors and creeds acted like spineless sheep shaking and trembling because they saw a wolf. We tolerated the unthinkable in America. Wake up America! 

America! It is time to repent and come back to God, but it is also time to take a stand and fight, fight, and fight for our freedoms. America has had enough of the shutdown! Enough with the thuggery of local and state governments! Enough is enough!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges a difference between flu death and flu associated death yet uses the terms interchangeably. Additionally, there are significant statistical incompatibilities between official estimates and national vital statistics data. Compounding these problems is a marketing of fear—a CDC communications strategy in which medical experts "predict dire outcomes" during flu seasons..."

Get A Call to Return: Restoring The Roots of Our Relationship With Jesus as an ebook, softcover, or hardcover book from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook, Westbow Press, or order it through your favorite bookstore.

From the Back Cover:

A Call to Return—Restoring the Roots of Our Relationship with Jesus explores the depths of the Scriptures to excavate, refine, and lift up its words of power, revealing deep truths that will radically change the lives of believers. By tapping into this rich vein of biblical insight, Dan Alan Rodriguez offers Christians the insights to enable them to set out upon paths of discipleship that follow Jesus closely and that lead to profound experiences of His presence and power.

Drawing upon the author’s study of first-century Judaism and Christianity and resting upon a diverse array of sources steeped in the foundational texts of these traditions, the twelve chapters of A Call to Return address a series of interlocking topics: a prophetic call to return; the revival of lawlessness; the revival, purpose, and preexistence of God’s commandments; the church’s commandments and their connections to faith, grace, and good works; the association of works of the law to Jewish tradition and ceremony; holiness; the fear of the Lord; each believer as a temple of the holy; and the meaning of loving the Lord Jesus.

If you have a sense that Jesus’s message and ministry are calling you to embark upon a walk with Him that might take you away from all in Christianity that requires no accountability or responsibility before God, then A Call to Return—Restoring the Roots of Our Relationship with Jesus is the right book for you to read. It will give you the keys for understanding and responding to the Lord’s call to return to Him and to follow where He leads.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Rev. 2:29 NASB).

 Faith that Receives the Grace pic

Faith that Receives the Grace of God is so important for you and me right now! There is an abundance of strange teaching in the area of grace. Grace has become for many a proposition "sin all you want without accountability", and a "do-nothing to receive from God." Grace for many is a rejection of Biblical moral commandments, and for others it is a denial of the words of Jesus. Grace, when it is in its right place Scripturally, is beautiful, abundant, and powerful, but it can be misused and misapplied. Unfortunately, grace is often taught wrongly. Instead of amazing grace, it has become gross, devilish, pseudo “grease” and not the Blood-bought-grace taught in the New Testament! This book was written so the Biblical perspective on faith and grace could be clearly presented by using verses in their context and according to the intent of the writers of the New Testament. If you have questions in this area, this free 266-page book is for you. Download the free PDF file here.

Here are some important and powerful Scripture references that teach about giving and receiving. 

Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support].(Galatians 6:6 Amplified Bible)

If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits? (1 Corinthians 9:11 (Amplified Bible)

God is able to make every good and perfect gift come to you as you give. He has abundance in mind for the generous giver because He wants such a one to be a conduit (not a reservoir) to continue being generous. Believe it! Where is that in Scripture? Look closely at 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 in the Amplified Bible version:

Now [remember] this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to others] will also reap generously [and be blessed]. Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].(A) And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. As it is written and forever remains written, He [the benevolent and generous person] scattered abroad, he gave to the poor, His righteousness endures forever!”(B) 10 Now He who provides seed for the sower and bread for food will provide and multiply your seed for sowing [that is, your resources] and increase the harvest of your righteousness [which shows itself in active goodness, kindness, and love].(C) 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous, and this [generosity, administered] through us is producing thanksgiving to God [from those who benefit].

Let that sink in, and note how giving and God's blessing on the giver are revealed in those verses. Wow!

God loves a cheerful giver; He delights in those whose heart is their gift!
