As he drew near, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.” (Emphasis added.)
Lk 19: 41-44

This passage is entitled The Lament for Jerusalem. Jesus is speaking. It appears only in the Gospel of Luke. Its importance cannot be overstated – especially today.
If only we saw this nation as our Jerusalem. But alas, we do not. Far from it.
We are governed by the blind with unlimited thirst for power. Corrupted as they are, they have not recognized the visitation bestowed on our nation. On the contrary, they belittle what God has done and drive all reference to Our Creator from culture and consciousness.
Relying on “reason” they know not truth. For truth requires humility. And Truth alone brings vision. Reason alone can never comes to its proper end without faith – and those on the secular Left, in particular, forsake faith. In this they prepare the palisades and hasten the enemy enter.
In life we know that the godless earn their suffering and demise. Their godlessness unchecked brings ill to all who remain silent.
Who among you sees this nation as our Jerusalem? Why do you not speak up? How can you let destruction visit us? Evil speaks freely while Truth remains silent.
Footnote – The FBI says it is going to work hard to track down anyone who misbehaves in cyberspace after the release of embarrassing Democrat Party emails showing the Party of freedom and tolerance tried to keep Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders from winning the Party’s presidential nomination. Really, Mr. Comey? Really?
We seem to have a “Credibility Gap” here.
