The GOP got whipped big time last night here in New Mexico. I have called for new leadership for years now. NM GOP Chairman Steve Pearce needs to resign, Pearce has not provided leadership for years here in New Mexico. You gotta wonder why he is still running the party! Voter turnout in New Mexico was lower compared to numbers in 2018’s midterm election. The face of the GOP nationally also needs to change. Trump is not going to help the GOP any longer because of his ongoing legal troubles and his continued bad mouthing of so many people like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. The GOP needs to hit the reset button. If the GOP wants to win they should put South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem at the head of the line for the 2024 Presidential election. Overall, the GOP has too many radicals in the party and it is turning off voters. The GOP needs better candidates that can sway people to the party. Hate never wins.
“Preach first by the way that you live”
This is why sharing the good news of God’s love is so urgent. As pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie notes, “God’s primary way of reaching nonbelievers is through the verbal articulation of the gospel.” We are inviting others into a personal, transforming relationship with a personal, transforming God. We can actually know Jesus and then make him known. And knowing him does in us and through us what no political party or leader could ever accomplish.
However, Charles Borromeo, the Archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584, offered an important qualification: “Be sure that you preach first by the way that you live. If you do not, people will notice that you say one thing but live another, and your words will bring only cynical laughter and a derisive shake of the head.”
Live the gospel and share the gospel. Know Christ and make him known, and long after yesterday’s elections are forgotten, your faithfulness to your Lord will echo in eternity.
This is the promise, and the invitation, of God.

America needs peacemakers. Here in New Mexico Governor Lujan Grisham defeated Democrat Mark Ronchetti. These two bashed heads against each other, they both ran nasty campaigns. Worst ever campaigns since I have lived here. Dirty politics. I have no respect for this type of life. Where are the peacemakers? After Roncheitti conceded last night he called for New Mexico to work together! RIGHT! The ads ran by both just divided the state more and more. After I officiated a funeral service last month for one of my best friends, Scott Flury of Chama, New Mexico who is known as a peacemaker, a lady came up to me and said, Why don’t you run for office, we need peacemakers.” I told her I have been asked before by people to run, not by politicians. God has not called me to be a politician. Scott served Chama as the owner of the radio station for several years and as a town council member and after his radio years he ran the Chama newspaper. He brought people from all sides together to help get things done in the community. A former Mayor of Chama told me that he and Scott did not agree on many issues, but they respected each other and worked together for the betterment of Chama. Who is going to be the peacemakers for New Mexico? What do politicians do not understand about HATE? Hate is like pouring more gas on an already raging fire in America. We are more divided that ever! Both the GOP and DEMS are guilty as charged.
From ‘Got Questions’: Only children of God can bring the peace of knowing God to others. A person must have a real relationship with God before he or she can help someone else know God. Those who witness for Christ, share their faith with their friends, and serve others in the name of Christ are the ambassadors for peace this verse identifies (see also Matthew 10:41-42). Those who bring the wonderful message of God’s peace to the world are “peacemakers,” and Jesus calls them the “children of God.” More Here From “Got Questions”

The GOP needs to build bridges of trust with the DEMS and Independents. The GOP is like some preachers who just preach to the choir, and do not carry out THE GREAT COMMISSION. The GOP needs to convince people that they can be trusted. Ronchetti got an the endorsement of Trump, what good does that do? Trump is disliked by so many here in New Mexico. The thing that also blew me away was that Lujan Grisham brought Biden to the state twice, with his dismal approval rating to sway voters. Really?
The Lord has called me to carry out The Great Commission. I am to help lead people to JESUS. Yesterday I visited with a lovely lady who I have been ministering to. This mother of two young children is going through a divorce. I gave her a Bible. She wept right there in ther store among her fellow workers. She said, “I always wanted a Bible.” My testimony is to you is to be a peacemaker, share the love of JESUS, call upon the Holy Spirit to bring peace to all saturations. Marvelous things happen when God comes on the secene! Amen!
Nothing is going to change here in New Mexico or anywhere in America without hearts be given to JESUS and Christians going out into the mission field.
With all the noise the GOP made in New Mexico and then to lose to Lujan Grisham and her abortion agenda and the continued killing of God’s babies, which includes building a 10 million dollar abortion clinic in Las Cruces, should send a message to all Republicans that your current plan to sway voters has failed big time. This election in New Mexico brings out a very horrific fact, with the election of Lujan Grisham, most New Mexicans support abortion.

As a long Tuesday night bled into a bleary Wednesday morning, it was still not clear whether Democrats or Republicans had won control of Congress in the pivotal 2022 midterms.
Yet amid all the electoral confusion, one thing was already abundantly clear: It was not the night Republicans had been hoping for.
