A number of troubling developments are highlighted by the general election on November 3, 2020. The Wisdom in Scripture states, “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, ‘See this, it is new’? Already it has existed for ages which were before us” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10).
Although the Secularist bitterly rejects Inspiration’s truth, the truth remains a reality. The unfolding developments of the 2020 election offer a shocking illustration that “that which has been is that which will be.” This is an interesting study, but it portends grave trouble for our Republic. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this development is the nonchalance with which it is regarded. Today historical truths are given a shrug of indifference by some, alarms by others and a cunning smirk by those using history’s playbook for their insidious mission.
Lenin boasted that the Bolshevik coup was “easier than lifting a feather.” And he was correct! A sovereign nation, with the largest military in Europe and centuries of history was taken over with little bloodshed. This maneuver’s intrigue offered a format that would be imitated by other anarchists. Lenin’s Bolsheviks had compromised the State by compromising the military. Any real opposition was cunningly eliminated. So the coup was as easy as lifting a feather—there was no serious opposition to lift out of the way. The Bolsheviks simply stepped over the ruin and rubble and took possession of the palaces and homes of the “privileged.” And, they then purged those deemed “despictables” in the Revolution’s jaundiced judgment.
This singular observation is a clarion call to modern America to wake up and recognize the evil threatening our Republic’s existence.
The Bolsheviks “softened up” the population so that the coup would be embraced and resistance would be minimal. Their strategy was amazingly successful. Lenin took a number of negative issues facing the Russian population and wove them together in a masterful manipulation that resulted in the founding of the first communist nation and a commenced a worldwide reign of terrorism for the next 70 years.
Even though Lenin’s Bolshevik party lost the 1917 free election in Russia garnering only 23% of the vote, he rejected the election’s outcome and seized power. His concern was not for the people…
