General Flynn was a guest on “His Glory Ministry” and offered the group and all their listeners an update on where America stands.
General Flynn offered hard truths and encouraging words to Americans
“Our nation is in a massive transition right now. It’s historic. And it’s not unlike other transitions our nation has faced in our past, transitions after great wars. We have been in great depressions. We have been in great tragedies that our country has gone through to include assasinations of presidents and such. Those type of monumental and historic events that cause us to reflect on who we are as a country. And what I would offer to this group and to all the listeners today, that as we face what it is that we are about to endeavor into, here in the next few weeks and next few months, and probably years, we have to reflect on what it is that we believe in.
“What do we as individuals believe in? In my case, I believe that we stand for, above all, above all the God given freedoms as individuals. Our constitution is not based on collectivism. It’s based on individualism, and it’s based on individual liberties.
“As you highlighted there Jim, you raised the constitution itself. Very few people even read the constitution these days. Schools barely talk about it. We’re lucky if we have a public system, and I’m not sure if private schools start the day with the pledge of allegiance to this country, which is a way to culturalize the students at the earliest levels in something to believe in that’s greater than even the education that they’re gonna get on that particular day.
“But our Bill of Rights as it was written, as it was documented and bled for, that bill of rights and our basic constitution is based on individual rights that we have. Those are not collective rights. Those are things that I, as a citizen of the United States, are God given Freedoms.
“The one thing that nobody can take from an individual is his or her ability to think for themselves, Right? That is a God given freedom that we have. Whether we’re chained up somewhere against our will, or whether we are deciding to step into the path of a bullet to save the life of a fellow soldier or fellow Marine, or whether we are stepping into the now, witnessing the very sort of political machinery that is happening in our country. And we have a lot of people in our country, million, millions, tens of millions that have woken up and now see that we cannot take for granted anything that we’re given.
“We can’t take our freedoms for granted for the kinds of things that we get up every day, and that I like to say, that we breathe the fresh air of liberty. In order for us to continue to breathe this fresh air of liberty, we have to be prepared to fight for that fresh air of liberty. We have to be prepared to, what I say, go to the gate, so to speak. What I mean by that, I mean getting involved, Getting involved at every level. This conversation is a way to get involved. Pastor David, he comes out and he gets involved. He serves his community. You all have served your communities in many ways over many years. One of my passions right now is to try to get out to America and really start to talk to Americans at the grass roots level. And get those 74 or75 million people that stood in line to vote for Donald Trump and you can no longer just stand in line and vote. You’re now going to have to get out of that line and you’re gonna have to participate. You’re gonna have to participate at the precinct level. You’re gonna have to participate at the county level. You’re gonna have to participate at the state level. And to a degree with the right talent sets, the right resources participate at the national level.
“And that’s what I’m going to be asking America and Americans to do in the coming days, the coming weeks and the coming months because we are at the edge of a cliff here.
“I always like to take it back to … I’ve been saying the Apostles Creed for so many years as a young person and as a Christian and when you say the Apostles Creed, it never occurred to me that after Jesus Christ was crucified and he suffered, he died and he descended into hell and then on the third day he rose again, right? So when he descended into hell, where did he go? And why would it take him three days to rise again, right? I mean, what was he doing? And I asked a priest that I know that is a theologian and he gave me, I’ll mess up the history or the theological history about it, but essentially Christ at that time stood at the abyss. He stood at a place called the abyss. According to some in chronological history, for three days and while he was in that place, that is referred to as the abyss, he had to contemplate a whole range of things for the world for all of us.
“And I have felt for the last four years that I was in that abyss with him. And without him, and without the American people coming to our side, coming to my family and my side and also knowing what the real truth was, we find ourselves in that valley. That Psalm 23 valley. We find ourselves in that abyss and I actually didn’t pay any attention to that prayer for probably, I don’t know…50 years? 55 years of my life. And now all of a sudden I was reading it one day and I read that and I said, Oh my God. Why did he go for three days there? Where did he go and what did it mean? Well, it meant…America, to stretch a metaphor of sorts; America is sort of in that abyss. And now we have to decide how we’re going to get out of it.
