  1. The spirit of violence & discord recently thrown over our nation like a blanket is the result of our nation’s foolish rebuke of God who caused it to be founded in the first, and to whom we owe everything.
    On an individual level in scripture we can see this same spiritual dynamic of God withdrawing His favor & replacing it with a spirit of bloodlust and discord as He did in the life of Saul.
    By all indications Saul seemed to be in the will of God as king and was vital to several key victories of Israel .
    Until he acted outside the will of God rebuking God’s Word in offering burnt sacrifice:
    ” And Samuel said,’ WHAT HAST THOU DONE? ” ( 1 Samuel 13:11 )

    It was after this that everything went downhill for Saul, and God’s Spirit departed him and not only departed him but in His place God sent unto Saul an ” evil ” spirit of violence and rage.

    ” But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul , AND AN EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LORD troubled him ”
    ( 1 Samuel 16:14 )

    This is not good news for this nation and I don’t believe it to be mere coincidence that just at the moment the last of the generation that actually was raised to, & did revere and honor God in our founding is passing away daily this evil spirit of violence & unrest sent from God is wresting more and more control.

    God Help Us.
