8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
1 Corinthians 9:22
22 To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some.

9 “Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.
4:9 teach them to your children. Deuteronomy stresses the responsibility of parents to pass on their experiences with God and the knowledge they have gained from Him to their children (cf. 6:7; 11:19). (MacArthur Study Bible)
32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.
8:32 the truth. “Truth” here has reference not only to the facts surrounding Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God but also to the teaching that He brought. A genuinely saved and obedient follower of the Lord Jesus will know divine truth and both freedom from sin (v. 34) and the search for reality. This divine truth comes not merely by intellectual assent (1 Cor. 2:14) but saving commitment to Christ (cf. Titus 1:1, 2). (MacArthur Study Bible)
Is it proper, or improper, for any agency of our government to use its assets to attack any citizen, much less the person who has been entrusted with the day-to-day oversight of all agencies of our government? Consider the words that were recently spoken by the leader of the minority party of our U.S. Senate. He exposes a powerful threat against one of our most powerful agencies of our government.(See the video below) Should he have not said, “it is wrong for any agency to attack the leader of our nation, and that I will lead my party in opposing such rebellion?” But, he did not say anything that should put the agencies of our government on notice that such “rebellion against any leader of our country, or any citizen of our country, will not be tolerated, with the force of law being brought against such a rebellious agency or person?” Folks, this is our country. We are in the process of having the constitutionally elected leader of our country coming under constant attacks by the liberal media (five major news networks, and major newspapers), and by the party which my family and I supported for many years…but not now. There is a constitutional way of addressing issues that relate to a our nation’s leader’s committing “high crimes and misdemeanors,” which is the impeachment process. Such a process is not taking place. There have been no such “high crimes and misdemeanors” that have been proven to have been committed by the leader of our nation. (Can you imagine why I write these articles, with the use of generic terms, and why I hide certain videos and put them at the tail end of other videos? Think about it!”) Consider the following information that relates to the impeachment process. Impeachment is the process of taking a government official to trial, for the possibility of removal from office.
U.S. Constitution – Article 2 Section 4
Article 2 – The Executive Branch
Section 4 – Disqualification
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
The United States Constitution states in Article II, Section 4: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Thus far in the history of the United States there been three Presidential impeachment proceedings — in 1868 against President Andrew Johnson for his removal of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton in violation of the Tenure of Office Act – 1974 against President Richard Nixon for the Watergate coverup (106 years after Johnson) – 1998-99 against President Bill Clinton for concealing an extramarital affair (24 years after Nixon).
Modern Impeachment Procedure:
Impeachment resolutions made by members of the House of Representatives are turned over to the House Judiciary Committee which decides whether the resolution and its allegations of wrongdoing by the President merits a referral to the full House for a vote on launching a formal impeachment inquiry.
The entire House of Representatives votes for or against a formal impeachment inquiry, needing only a simple majority (a single vote) for approval.
If approved, the House Judiciary Committee conducts an investigation to determine (similar to a grand jury) if there is enough evidence to warrant articles of impeachment (indictments) against the President. The Committee then drafts articles of impeachment pertaining to specific charges supported by the evidence. The Committee votes on each article of impeachment, deciding whether to refer each article to the full House for a vote.
If the House Judiciary Committee refers one or more articles of impeachment, the entire House of Representatives votes on whether the article(s) merit a trial in the Senate, needing only a simple majority for approval.
If the full House approves at least one article of impeachment, the President is technically impeached and the matter is referred to the U.S. Senate. The House then appoints members of Congress to act as managers (prosecutors).
The trial of the President is held in the Senate with the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court presiding. The President can be represented by anyone he chooses. He may appear personally or leave his defense in the hands of his lawyers.
The entire Senate may conduct the trial or it or it may be delegated to a special committee which would report all the evidence to the full Senate.
The actual trial is conducted in a courtroom-like proceeding including examination and cross-examination of witnesses. During questioning, Senators remain silent, directing all questions in writing to the Chief Justice.
After hearing all of the evidence and closing arguments, the Senate deliberates behind closed doors then votes in open session on whether to convict or acquit the President. The vote to convict must be by a two-thirds majority, or 67 Senators. If this occurs, the President is removed from office and is succeeded by the Vice President. The Senate’s verdict is final and there is no right of appeal.
Notice that the House of Representatives begins the impeachment process. If a simple majority of the members of the House of Representatives votes for impeachment, the Senate will hold a trial, with the U.S. Supreme Court presiding. Conviction requires a two-thirds vote of the members of the Senate; removal from office is the result. Our founding fathers put together a good system of government. It is a shame that our schools are not teaching “Government” to the degree that is necessary to create an informed electorate. So, it is up to parents to “Teach Your Children.” (Deuteronomy 6:7-8).
