 “HOT METAL THE ANVIL
 AND 
THE HAMMER AND COLD WATER"

Essay by: Rev. James M Wesley Jr.@ 27 JULY 2015, 3:45 pm EST

As I painfully watch the disintegration of our nation along 
RACIAL, CULTURAL, RELIGIOUS, ECONOMIC, AND MORAL LINES my heart aches. What is happening to the greatest nation ever seen in world history? I’m not naive enough to believe all of this chaos, conflict and confusion just suddenly happened. No it has occurred over time like an an UN-DIAGNOSED cancer…yes a spiritual cancer the BIBLE calls it an EVIL SPIRIT OF UNBELIEF AND A ROOT OF BITTERNESS. As a servant of our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST my WORLDVIEW is predicated on HIS PRINCIPALS. These PRINCIPALS ARE IRREFUTABLE, 
UNCHANGEABLE…CONSTANT. You don’t BREAK THESE PRINCIPALS THEY WILL BREAK YOU OR IN THIS CASE OUR NATION. The words of our FOUNDING FATHERS forever etched into this nation’s history are in the documents that defined us as a people...the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, ARTICLES OF 
CONFEDERATION, and the CONSTITUTIONS, AND THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS all illustrate how we made it as a nation thus far.You may wonder about the title of this essay. 
“THE MAKING OF A NATION”1861-1865 STARS AND STRIPES VS STAR AND BARS “HOT METAL” THE ANVIL AND THE HAMMER AND COLD WATER.You see we have an enemy not “at the gate” but “in the WHITE HOUSE”. One that is ruthless, corrupt, and a FRAUD THAT HATES THIS NATION AND 
ALL IT REPRESENTS. He hates our FAITH, TRADITIONS, OUR LAWS, and OUR HISTORY. HE HAS COME IN SOWING THE SEEDS OF DISCORD AND INSURRECTION, AND RACIAL HATRED. For the sake of time I will suffice it to say the cancer of 
SOCIALISM, AND SECULAR HUMANISM evolved like a cancer weaving its way through our society, corrupting, and questioning the very foundations that made us powerful, prosperous and the envy of the whole planet. I’m not going to name drop but this conspiracy over a 70 year period has had a lot of players and they all had one employer the DEVIL HIMSELF “COMES TO STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY”.Over the past couple of years I’ve had quite a few intense debates about the CIVIL WAR AND WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. After much prayer and soul searching the LORD showed me what it truly was about. Many want to debate the finer points of STATES RIGHTS while standing on the 
battered backs of other human beings. This was a period in our history that a slave was just another ledger entry that constituted the MASTER’S NET WORTH. The other issues from this preacher’s position as an AMERICAN OF AFRICAN DESCENT are irrelevant. My ancestors were the freed slaves that fought for the “STARS AND STRIPES”…in a reenactment I would be wearing THE BLUE COAT fighting for my family and hope for a 
better life in this UNION. This is my heritage and I’m proud of it.
On the STARS AND BARS side of the equation I understand that 
the average CONFEDERATE SOLDIER didn’t own a single slave, but felt he was fighting for HIS WAY OF LIFE and fight he did as did those on the side of the STARS AND STRIPES over 700,000 dead a horrible price to pay, but necessary because as a NATION WE HAD BROKEN THE LORD’S PRINCIPALS.Now lets look at how you STRENGTHEN METAL…it takes FIRE!! Yes heat the heat of debate coming from intense disagreement over a period 
of time. Then comes the POUNDING WITH THE HAMMER AND ANVIL “WAR”, then the TEMPERING BY DOUSING IN COLD WATER “RECONSTRUCTION”…1861-1865 HOT METAL HARD HAMMER UNBREAKABLE ANVIL….Yes there was a winner and there was a loser both felt their cause was just, but the LORD had the last word. The NATION CAME OUT OF THE COLD WATER OF RECONSTRUCTION THE MOST POWERFUL AND PROSPEROUS NATION IN HISTORY. Now to the issue of being 
allowed to PUBLICLY HONOR OUR SHARED HERITAGE WITHOUT BEING DISPARAGED AND ACCUSED OF RACISM IS WHERE THIS PRESENT RACIAL STRIFE HAS BROUGHT US. No I would never wave the STARS AND BARS OR PUT ON A CONFEDERATE UNIFORM, BUT I WOULD STILL EXTEND A HAND IN CHRISTIAN LOVE,AND PATRIOTIC HARMONY FOR WHAT WE SHARE. Let’s not allow this demonic pervert that presently occupies the White House to destroy by pitting us against one another. We are presently in this man’s END GAME…and sorry to say he has played the RACE CARD at every possible 
opportunity, and has amassed a large number of the young BLACK COMMUNITY INTO WHAT VLADIMIR LENIN CALLED “USEFUL IDIOTS”…disposable. In an effort to ignite a RACE WAR….This brings me back to the catalyst of our present condition… yes a spiritual cancer the BIBLE calls it an EVIL SPIRIT OF UNBELIEF AND A ROOT OF BITTERNESS.
Hebrews 3:12
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
Hebrews 12:15
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any
root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be
defiled;
