Violence in Our Streets- What has it Proven to America?

August 8, 2020

It should be obvious to any watchful believer that the violent elements in the riots in some cities were instigated by the devil. It is Satan that comes to kill, steal, and destroy. (John 10:10) All three elements of Satan’s agenda for the earth were seen in the riots and violence perpetrated by Black Lives Matters members and supporters, and by other violent groups such as Antifa. Of course, there were political reasons for the attacks. There is a mad push to destabilize the government, law enforcement, and to establish socialism by force.

Hatred for all things Trump by the Democrats and the far left is the main reason in the natural, but there are spiritual implications for all this evil manifested in the streets of America. Satan failed to cause the Coronavirus pandemic to permanently shut down freedom and bring the earth under a one world government. His next step was to then let violence flow in the land and see if he can shut down a country that was based on Biblical principles (America) in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. 
Our country was not based on white supremacy as was Nazi Germany. We had godly founding fathers that believed that God was in the establishment of America. “Oh, but black slavery was a part of American society back then,” some way retort angrily. Yes, it was, as it also a part European society and in many other nations. Slavery was an ungodly institution, and it eventually led to the Civil war in America where the Democrat South fought to keep their slaves, and the Republican North fought to make the black slaves free in every respect. Yes, that part is usually ignored by many spouting off that America is essentially and fundamentally racist, a statement that is as big a lie as Satan! The Democrat party was established to continue slavery, as opposed to the Republican party that believed that all men were created equal according to our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and even the Declaration of Independence.

Slavery was a part of society going back millennia. It was and is wrong to enslave other human beings, but that is not the whole truth. Many were made slaves after their country was defeated in a time of war. The vanquished often became the slaves of the nation that conquered it.

Nebuchadnezzar and the conquest of all the land of Israel is a case in point. Babylonian troops conquered the land and took many thousands back to Babylon to become slaves of the kingdom. Read 2 Chronicles chapter 29-31, the Book of Daniel, and of course, the last few chapters of the book of Jeremiah. 

Slavery was a very ancient institution. Slaves have existed among all colors and creeds. How about the truth that people of fairer skin were slaves of the darker skinned Egyptians? Egyptians made slaves of many tribes and people. They made slaves of the Israelites. Do you remember? It was not all black slavery. MANY were slaves that were not black Africans. It is ignorance of world history to believe that.

Did you know that Nazi Germany made slaves of Jews, Poles, and many others that were not black? Read the truth in history. Don’t fall for the lies of the revisionists!

Did you know that slavery was not all forced? Have you read it in the Scripture? Many sold themselves into slavery voluntarily so they could have protection, food, and lodging. Read the Bible! 

The Roman Empire enslaved MANY different countries and peoples. 
The Persians did it. 
The Assyrians did it. 
The Philistines did it. 
Ancient Israel did it.
The emperors of China did it. 
The Umayyads did it.

The list goes on and on, because all ancient nations that defeated another nation took in slaves. That my friend is a historical fact. Yet, it was ONLY in the United States of America that long and bloody battles were fought to the death during the American Civil War to liberate black slaves from oppression. Why? Because one of the founding principles of our country is that we are all created equal as human beings. Black, white, or GREEN, it matters not what is the color of your skin. It is an unalienable right in our country. A bloody Civil War was not fought not in India, Russia, China, Japan, Europe, Canada, South America, Mexico, Asia, or any other nation to assure constitutional freedoms of the black people. Only in America!

Don’t let leftist propaganda fool you! America is one of the least racist countries on the planet. Yes, there are a few crazies in America that believe in white supremacy, but not many when compared to other countries. In some countries, there is a strict caste system in place, few women’s rights, and some form of slavery still exists. If you don’t believe that then you probably haven’t travelled much to other parts of the world, and you believe all communist and leftist Democrat demonic propaganda. I know people from other countries that have travelled extensively, and they confirm that America is one of the least racist countries on planet Earth.

South Africa was once controlled by apartheid where blacks were non-citizens. When apartheid was abolished and blacks came into power, now the opposite is true. South Africa continues to be a violently racist country of blacks ruling over the whites, often with violence, and inequality. Now whites are the oppressed minority in South Africa. Where is the outcry against the oppression of the white South Africans? 

Ask anybody that is from certain Muslim countries about women’s rights in their country. Ask them about their prospective tolerance of other religions. Generally, there is NONE. Many women are not allowed vote, hold high government office, or even get a driver’s license.

Ask anybody that has left communist China if there is freedom of speech or if you are free to have religious services. Try burning the Chinese flag in open protest. See what that will get you. I totally disagree in burning U. S. flags, and I think there should be some penalty for doing so to a national symbol, but not long-term imprisonment, banishment, or death!

Why is it that one caste will not marry into another caste in India? Why are there violent clashes between Hindus and those of other religions in India? Tolerance? 
Again, the list could go on for many pages.

Quit believing the humongous lie that America is fundamentally racist because it is not! How come NONE of the European countries have ever had a black man serve as their president or prime minister? Why has India never had a Christian as president? Why has Saudi Arabia never had any high governmental position held by a woman or a Christian? Why has communist China condemned or imprisoned (or tortured and killed) dissenting groups and voices in their country? Why have they suppressed Christianity, Islam, and many other religious groups? The same goes for North Korea and other countries.

Shut up your mouth if you want to tell me America is racist! Whoever believes that nonsense is stupid beyond belief! America is exceptionally low on any racist and oppressive scale! I think the most oppression we have had here recently is from Democrat governors and mayors during the Covid-19 shutdowns. They were a shoe in for communist and totalitarian control of the people. It was and is disgusting to watch. They refused over and over to stop their oppressive measures. They loved the power to control the populace and didn’t want it to stop! They wanted to control and shut everything down, if possible, until the election, as a political scheme to use it to condemn and malign Trump. It was converted into a political weapon, but then something totally unexpected happened. 

George Floyd died during his arrest from a heart attack and there was fentanyl and other trash in his system. Did you know he was a convicted felon? We only see video at the tail end of his arrest. I would like to see the entire arrest video and all the details come out before judging law enforcement. I remember the incident with Rodney King and how the media played ONLY the tail end of the video showing Rodney King being beaten with batons by the police. Yet, when it went to trial the officers were acquitted when the whole video was seen and showed how the police officers did everything they could restrain King FIRST, and only escalated to batons when King was acting like a crazed animal and resisted arrest. Do you remember the riots then? Do you remember the looting? It was all unjustified and it was demonically inspired violence.

Peaceful protest for the death of George Floyd have turned violent because Antifa and other terrorist groups got involved for political reasons. What did all this rioting do with the quarantines, and all the stay-at home orders? They all went down the toilet! The falsehood of all the Democrat governors and mayors and their reasons for the shutdown of the economy, churches, schools (etc.) was proven to be only a political ploy! With the violent looting, shootings, and clashes, these Democrat mayors were proven to be liars. After their cities began to burn, all the shutdowns ended immediately! Did you notice that the violent riots broke out in Democrat controlled cities? How come few if any cities under a Republican mayor had any violent clashes? Hmm. Things that make you say, “Hmm.”

For those that wanted to get Trump out of office November 2020, with all this nonsense during Covid-19 and the violent riots, they signed on to his reelection. They made Trump’s reelection that much easier. May the wrecking ball (TRUMP) continue to destroy and drain the vast swamp in Washington and in the U. S. government! May a new government arise that lives and breathes the Constitution and our Bill of Rights! May great repentance flow in our streets and may a revival like this world has never seen be poured out on our land! I believe it has already begun! Glory to God!

I quote Jesus and what the apostle John heard from the Lord in the Revelation and keep my comments to a minimum. Do you want to know what Jesus said about entering into eternal life? Let's study what He said about it! The audio podcast can be found via the button at the bottom. Be mightily blessed! 



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.

Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that He has a wonderful plan for your life? I have a real quick, but important question to ask you. If you were to die this very second, do you know for sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you would go to Heaven?

Let me quickly share with you what the Holy Bible reads. It reads “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” and “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. The Bible also reads, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”. And you’re a “whosoever” right? Of course you are; all of us are.

I’m going to say a quick prayer for you. Lord, bless the person reading this and his/her family with long and healthy lives. Jesus, make Yourself real to him/her and do a quick work in his/her heart. If If you have not received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, I pray you will do so now.

If you would like to receive the gift that God has for you today, say this after me with your heart and lips out loud.

"Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Wash me and cleanse me. Set me free. Jesus, thank You that You died for me. I believe that You are risen from the dead and that You’re coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Give me a passion for the lost, a hunger for the things of God and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m saved; I’m born again, I’m forgiven and I’m on my way to Heaven because I have Jesus in my heart."

As a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I tell you today that all of your sins are forgiven. Always remember to run to God and not from God because He loves you and has a great plan for your life.

Contact me and let me know you received Jesus as Lord and Savior!




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!

Be mightily blessed as you give generously!
