Escape From New Jersey
In my heart of hearts, I’m convinced that come 2021, a remake of the movie that once starred Kirk Russell, will be remade and retitled Escape From New Jersey. The election of Phil Murphy for Governor and Vin Gopal for Senate will do more to take this state down the wrong roads (which by then will have been totally un-drivable) than any other two bad politicians ever elected from either side of the political aisle.
It will be no bargain either on the national front as by then, the nation’s economy will have joined the social and political arena in the worst upheaval in America’s history.
The old saying will be true for most – “You can run but you can’t hide.” However, I do believe if your Lord & Savior is Jesus Christ (and not a Democrat or Republican) and remember the advice given from the “Manual of Life” (the Holy Bible), you’ll be okay:
1 John 4:5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.
John 15:19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
1 John 2:15-17 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
1 Peter 2:11-12 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
And in case you like to know the exact moment when the beginning of the end started that allowed a Phil Murphy and Vin Gopal to be elected:
