Open Letter to Trudeau

 

This open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from pastors across Canada sends a heavenly warning to all those who hold office.  Here is a partial sample of the letter from Liberty Coalition Canada. I hope other leaders, including our own, read it and take heed:

Mr. Trudeau, with great respect, you are neither the king nor the ruler of Canada. Both you and your colleagues are public servants sent for a short time to Parliament at our behest as citizens to govern under God in terms of the Canadian Charter and to seek a harmony of public legal interest. You do not grant people rights and responsibilities that are theirs as God’s image-bearers and a free people. Since you do not grant them, you have no authority to remove them.

Your government does not grant people the right to their bodily integrity, the right to work or earn a living, the right to decide for their children or to be with their families or dying loved ones, the right to gather to worship and obey God, the right to travel in their own land or enter and leave. Civil government exists to protect these pre-political and fundamental freedoms, not bestow and remove them as if it can function in the place of God.

He sets up kings and pulls down the mighty from their thrones and none can stay his hand. In the words of the same scriptures engraved on the Peace Tower in Ottawa and written into our very national Coat of Arms:

Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. (Ps. 2: 10-12)

    That’s cute to think Trudeau or any other petty tyrant would read this, much less read it and take heed.

    Trudeau fell into Rehoboam’s (Son of Solomon) folly. With just a little bit of diplomacy he could have looked like a hero.

    I see the Queen now has Covid.  God wants her to intervene in Canada.

    Whether Trudeau reads it or not, the letter makes a powerful statement to believers. That in itself is very important!

    Yes, and though it is addressed to Trudeau, I don’t think it was written to him.  He is lost.

    Yes. But watch for David French to declare them all evil right-wing bigots for refusing to bow to Trudeau.

    I thought so too when I read it – a Trumpet call. Could apply to any aspect of our lives where freedom is being stomped, like the rights of parents?

    I wish there had been this kind of response in the United States to the imprisoning of the January 6 protesters.

    I’ve been wondering if the actions of the Trudeau Regime might cause some anti-Trump people to view Jan. 6th with a bit more skepticism. Like, . . . hey, maybe crap like that happened here, too. Because we now know that the police on January 6th were deliberately riling up the peaceful crowd, spraying them with tear gas (or some kind of chemical) and beating them, too. The DC police probably killed Rosanne Boyland.

    I detect sarcasm.

    Rather, I think with everything I’ve seen from our Ruling Class over the last decade or two, yeah . . . I’m pretty sure that January 6th was an FBI operation.

    I hope the pastors at Liberty Coalition Canada are prepared to share the fate of Martin Niemoller. The Prime Minister has pushed all his chips into the middle of the table, it seems to me.

    My comment was directed to the part where you say “I’ve been wondering if the actions of the Trudeau Regime might cause some anti-Trump people to view Jan. 6th with a bit more skepticism. Like, . . . hey, maybe crap like that happened here, too.” Not the rest of it. ‘Cause that part is correct.

    So did Ceausescu. Let us be on the right side of history.

    The American Truckers Convoy is set to leave Barstow on February 23rd heading for DC.  Will our great Supreme Leader Senile Joe resort to Trudeauesque behavior? That is what we should worry about.  Our system of Justice seemingly in many areas has thrown in the towel on “Equal Justice for All” to appease the Biden Police State.  When will we get our Country back?  Or better yet how do we get our Country back?

     If our Police and/or National Guard resort to the same behavior as the Ottawa Police, should they be prosecuted? In my mind, Hell Yes.

    I get a bad feeling from his Cornpop stories and the glee he takes in talking about the care of straight razors and using chains as weapons.

    Remember Biden showed how he felt about us when he reminded us (his so-called fellow citizens) he had nukes and fighter planes.  What American, much less American president, would ever say such a thing?  Certainly no one who had a modicum of love for his country or fellow man.  These are the words of Herod, Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun, Henry VIII, Stalin, and Hitler (collectively Satan), not George Washington.  Washington would be appalled, but not surprised.  That’s why our Government was setup the way it was, to confuse man’s worse instincts.  Evil men have always been with us and have lived beneath every flag.  They have always conspired to take from the many to give back to the few – namely ME.  In their mind, government was always supposed to be the means for them to control us.  Our Constitution and Faith got in the way. 

    Doesn’t matter if they have a D, R, or I behind their name, but Ds have been better focused on the prize of returning this country to a godless monarchy/oligarchy.  They were once more blunt about their intentions, but insidiously learned to hide behind righteous words and noble ideals.  They believe in no ideal other than themselves.  Democracy is only a vehicle.  Paraphrasing what one of their erstwhile allies once said, they will ride the Democracy train until they get to their destination.  Their recent bluntness is a sign they think the last train station is getting close.   They feel the restraints parting.

    They don’t surprise me.  What puzzles me are their minions who somehow believe they will be able to ride their coattails to Utopia (i.e. nowhere).  They are as dispensable as the rest of us.  It takes a special kind of idiot to think they are special to these folks.  The police, doctors, “scientists”, bureaucrats, and soldiers have been largely pruned down to the believers and conformists, but they will gain nothing on earth from this group.  That door is shut.  At best they will be fighting for crumbs.  They think they are choosing the winners, but they are throwing away their only chance for freedom on this little place called earth.  They are actually throwing away much more than that.  When my dad tries to summarize the modern world in a single verse he likes to quote Ecclesiastes 10:2.  I like Isaiah 5:20.   

    Ultimately, no kingdom created by man will ever survive.   Nations conspire and people plot in vain.  The One enthroned in heaven laughs.  He will rebuke them in his wrath.  There is only one king and it will never be mortal man. That is why they hate him and his followers.  Be of good faith folks!  Its going to get ugly, but God’s got this!!

    P.S.  It was also Biden who said a few years ago that, “Government is inherently good”.  He did not lie, but that statement can only be reconciled with a thin threat of nukes and fighters against the governed if we understand who he meant government is inherently good for.  Obviously, folks like him.  Government has been very good for folks like Biden, Pelosi, Obama, the Clintons, the Bushes, and the Trudeaus.  Politicians speak truth more often than we give them credit.  They just don’t finish their sentences or define their terms.

    Nancy Pelosi will turn it into a right wing extremists on the march again fest that needs to be stopped. The barricades will go up and and fake news will roll.
