‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

A Resolution by Robert Socha

The following is a resolution I am asking my fellow city councilmen and women to adopt in defiance of totalitarianism. I am publishing it to encourage and exhort communities across the country to join in this rebuke of the federal and state governments overreach as a response to the Covid-19 strain of the coronavirus. I welcome and encourage all public servants and elected officials to adopt similar measures. I encourage civil debate concerning the contents therein and welcome the possibility of amending the resolution based on fuller consideration or newer information.

I wish to thank Effingham County (1), Illinois, Hillsdale County (2), Michigan, and the website, sanctuarycounties.com (3), for their publishing resolutions protecting 2ndAmendment Rights which I adopted and integrated into the language of this resolution.

Note: Please see the addendum following the post with significant links to pertinent information.

Grace, mercy and peace be multiplied to you.

WHEREAS, the Governor of the State of Michigan (4) and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) have manipulated the law to impose draconian lockdowns and tyrannical mandates shutting businesses, restricting indoor gatherings and religious services, restricting travel, and requiring masks, without the consent of the Legislature of the State of Michigan, and thereby without the consent of the governed, since the first restriction imposed by Governor Whitmer on March 13, 2020, expanding to a statewide lockdown for “at least three weeks” on March 23, 2020, with multiple iterations and extensions to the present day, February 23, 2021, and for the foreseeable future, and;

WHEREAS, the efficacy of masks being disputed within the scientific community (7), and Dr. Fauci’s contradictory orders and findings (8), including but not limited to a 2008 study (9) into the Spanish Influenza epidemic of 1918 which surmised the wearing of masks increased the possibility of pneumonia that exacerbated the death rate, and himself not submitting to the requirements (10) over the past year, and;

WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States, looking to pass H.R. 5 (16), known as the “Equality Act,” which, in the name of “Equality,” appears to grant special rights and immunities to people of the “Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (referred to as “LGBTQ”)” community while prohibiting the constitutionally protected Right of the free exercise of Religion, and;

WHEREAS, proposed legislation and executive orders, any bills, orders or mandates similar to, or under consideration by the Michigan State Legislature or the Congress of the United States, or the Governor of the State of Michigan, or the President of the United States, or any department therein, that would infringe the People’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms and would ban or restrict the possession and use of firearms, magazines, body armor now employed by individual citizens of Hillsdale, Michigan, for the defense of Life, Liberty, and Property within Hillsdale, Michigan;
