    Dutch Sheets: My Mid-Term Election Response

    Dutch Sheets: My Mid-Term Election Response

    Unlike many of my colleagues, I was not confident conservatives would keep the House of Representatives. Though I prayed passionately for this to occur, I simply had no word or assurance from the Lord they would do so. Therefore, I was neither devastated nor surprised when conservatives lost. Also, the losses in the House were much fewer than predicted, and much fewer than almost any other president's party has experienced in his first mid-term election. Conservatives didn't do all that poorly.

    The gains in the Senate were unprecedented. I don't believe any president's party has ever done as well in his first mid-term election. Maintaining control of the Senate means liberals will not be able to further their agenda, nor reverse the positive accomplishments of President Trump's first two years. True, there will be a stalemate which will slow progress, but we won't lose ground.

    Also, the gains made in the Senate (Republicans went from a 51/49 majority to 54/46) were wins by very conservative, pro-life, pro-Trump agenda individuals. This means the votes of two moderate, pro-abortion Republican senators (Collins and Murkowski) can no longer stop pro-life laws and the appointment of pro-life Judges. There will still be enough Republicans without them. I have been stating for years that the most important shift needed in our government is in the unelected Judicial Branch. No other group has opened the gates for more evil into America. The Senate, however, not the House, approves Supreme Court Justices, Federal Judges, and District Judges. By maintaining control of the Senate—and actually increasing the number of pro-life individuals in it—the shift in our judicial system can continue. Again, two of the Republican Senators are pro-abortion. Before the election, having only 51 Republicans, these two individuals alone could stop any pro-life Justice or Judge appointed by President Trump. This is no longer the case—we have a majority without them. The most needed shift in American government can now continue uninterrupted.

    When Joshua led Israel into the conquest of their God-given land, Canaan, they began with a great, supernatural conquest at Jericho, one of Canaan's most fortified cities. However, Israel was defeated at its next battle, one they should have won had they listened to and obeyed God. But Joshua and his people didn't give up. They regrouped, sought God's help and returned to the battle. And they won.
    Yes, I am disappointed by one aspect of the election outcome; however, I am greatly encouraged by the others. We are weaker in the House but much stronger in the Senate, where the most important cause of our day can still be accomplished: the shifting of the Supreme Court. In the meantime, we must and will continue to pray. Our prayers are making a huge difference and will continue to do so. Without question, we are seeing our nation turn around.
    We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender. Winston Churchill

    I don't see a turn around. What I see is a slower speed as the ship-of-state hits the iceberg dead ahead.

    The Titanic? Hmmm.....that might just be an apt analogy.
