The news media and Democratic Party had a heyday ridiculing Republicans over their endless ballots in deciding who would be Speaker of the House. They were mocking the seemingly indecisive Republicans, suggesting that they were leaderless, a reflection on former president Trump, a deep rift in the party, and didn’t know how to govern. What we saw play out before our very eyes was, in my opinion, a spiritual struggle. The entire seat of government has been engaged in a spiritual war for many years, perhaps even since the beginning of this wonderful experiment of a Constitutional Republic. It is not only the struggle between good and evil; it also is the classic battle between statism and individual freedom.

Democrats always have had a much easier time unifying in one big umbrella of political interests. They are, by definition, an everyone votes, majority rule façade in front of statist ideals of control. When they say free, they mean someone else is going to pay for it. Republicans, by definition, adhere to qualified voters electing representatives to vote by the rule of law. This system requires Constitutional and legal protections so that the majority cannot enslave or control the minority. It’s based on less government and more individual freedom. The problem of the human factor seeps in. Humans seem to like control. They think they know best like if you eat of the apple, you surely won’t die. Some Republicans also think this way.

Some conservative Republicans believe in changing the way government is headed—to impact the spiritual battle over the principality of the godless statist system—they needed to stand. And no matter how the world viewed what they were doing, they remained strong through 14 ballots to receive guarantees that the not-so-strong Republicans will hold up their end of the bargain and do the right thing.

That’s the way politics works. The guarantees received by the conservative Republicans in exchange for supporting House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) included fiscal accountability measures and several bills, among them to repeal authorization of the army of 87,000 IRS agents; a bill to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions; a resolution to investigate the weaponization of the Federal government against its citizens; and much more.

What seemed to be a sloppy process that was ridiculed by the news media, the Democrats, and some Republicans, was necessary to force a rollback of some of the nonsense that has taken place in government over the past several years.

Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Indeed, Satan is a statist–Government replaces God, and the head of government and his minions are satanic sock puppets. Satan has wanted to destroy this country and remove its God-ordained Constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms since the beginning. And finally, there are a handful of people who did what Ephesians 6:13 instructs, “having done all, to stand.”

    Jesus said that it was the scriptures, the writings of Moses, and the prophets that testified of him. He often appealed to the authority of the scriptures when teaching his disciples, answering the challenges of the scribes and Pharisees and even when battling the devil head on. Today, Christians still have the same scriptures Jesus used. In addition, we have the words and works of Jesus recorded in the Gospels. We also have the Acts and letters of the apostles. These writings make up the 27 books of the New Testament. None of the books were produced after the era of the Apostles. Church councils were a necessary part of church history clarifying what Christians believed based upon these inspired and authoritative writings of Holy Scripture. Yet traditions and creeds are not equal in authority to the words of Christ and His apostles recorded in the holy scriptures themselves.
