How to fight City Hall
By Frances M.
I fought city hall (Houston
TX) and won.
I know if everyone writes an e-mail to their congressman,
they can delete all of them in one easy click.
I know if everyone calls their congressman, they can let
a recorder or someone answer the call and never get the
I also know that if people went back to writing
letters, their congressmen would have to trip over those
bags of mail and could not ignore them. They would do
what the people wanted just to get them to leave them
Yes I have been a political activist at times.
How did I learn all this? I took a course in business
law in college and my law professor was a US congressman
from TX. He taught us how to fight city hall and how to
get our elected official's attention.
At that time people were into petitions - he said they
were a waste of time because the official could just step
over a single piece of mail; but he did not like tripping
over bags of mail. petitions are still around but
e-mails have been added since then.
And of course, God's word tells us how and Jesus promised
to tell us what to say.
Mat 10:19-20 "But when they deliver you up, do not worry
about how or what you should speak. For it will be given
to you in that hour what you should speak; "for it is not
you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks
Luke 18:1-8 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men
always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: "There
was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor
regard man. "Now there was a widow in that city; and she
came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from my
adversary.' "And he would not for a while; but afterward
he said within himself, 'Though I do not fear God nor
regard man, 'yet because this widow troubles me I will
avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary
me.'" Then the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge
said. "And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out
day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? "I
tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless,
when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on
Biblical principles work. The Jews know that and use
them. Why aren't we?
Satan, his angels
and demons are our enemies and they can not touch us. They
can only scar us or influence us. The Jews do not have more
power than Satan and Satan has already been defeated.
It is not in the Jews
best interest for the USA to be bankrupt. We are their main
ally right now. Without us they would have no help and they
know it. If they can manipulate things as well as you say,
why are the Arab nations still standing?
I do not believe they
are stronger than God in us. To believe that would lower my
Christian standards and cause me to lose all home.
I stand on the
following scripture in my belief and faith that God is in
control and who my battle is with.
Col 1:13-17 He has
delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into
the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have
redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is
the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all
creation. For by Him all things were created that are in
heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether
thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things
were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all
things, and in Him all things consist.
Eph 6:12 For we do
not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness
in the heavenly places.
Col 2:13-15 And you,
being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your
flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven
you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of
requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us.
And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the
cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a
public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
1 Pet 3:21-22 There
is also an antitype which now saves us; baptism (not the
removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good
conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus
Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of
God, angels and authorities and powers having been made
subject to Him.
1 John 5:18 We know
that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been
born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch
Rom 8:38-39 For I am
persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor
principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to
come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.
Eph 3:8-12 To me,
who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was
given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the
unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is
the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of
the ages has been hidden in God who created all things
through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold
wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the
principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according
to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus
our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence
through faith in Him.
