Great Phone Chat with a Friend.

The Doobie Brothers- What a Fool Believes (live...

I believe I had a 'controlled blowout' with a female at the Milwaukee VA Pharmacy this morning as I called them today to order more meds-- a monthly thing, SOP [standard operating procedure]. I got my congressman on them a few times and they gave him their standard tail-chasing song and dance act until he pulled back. Just pure BS [berry sap]. And this is the kind of obama-care YOU ALL will be getting soon enough! I would love to see the 'congress and senate' get the same care that we will get... lol. The female VA player told me that 'I had an attitude'. .. Ha! And then she hung up on me. The supervisor there always stands up and lies for his assistants... good old boys routine. You can spin your wheels and have a coronary but seldom get justice or redress, and all they get is a slap on the wrist.

But anyway, I got a great phone call from a buddy named Kevin, a fellow bible student, for 30 minutes, and I thought I would try to tie a few things together tonight for my mind and yours.
I have [am blessed with] MANY great friends, most of them Christian, and we agree on more than we don't. A few points I want to bring out is that, my recent understandings and 'revelations', I hope and pray are all biblical, but there is that general consensus that all true bible students agree on the 'BIG, MORE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE SALVATION, ETC. Those things are, of course, black and white. Example: If indeed the Bible says that the Lord Jesus Christ is the ONLY One who can set things on earth right and NO human or group/ political party/ organization can.... why are some of us trying so hard to perpetuate this wicked system of Satan's ?? Why polish the brass on a sinking ship? Can't we admit that BOTH parties in America and even globally are man made and imperfect and not generally speaking not biblical, nor do they serve God Almighty? It took me a while to figure this out too. OK, we are to pray for the 'superior authorities' to be benevolent, just, and allow us the FREEDOM to practice our Christian Faith without fear or persecution, but we MUST take the stand that being a Christian [that means a follower or imitator of Christ...] may mean our losing everything including our very lives rather than compromise as the "world" wants to do. The words of the bible/ God are REAL and He doesn't change His ways! In a way, I am glad because this separates the 'men from the boys.'

EVERYTHING IS FALLING RIGHT INTO PROPHETIC PLACE, right in front of our bible trained eyes! Churches are caving in to accept things that are detestable to GOD, one after the other! For abortion alone, God has the right to snuff us all out yesterday. Yet, people are bible illiterate [and in the USA-- ENGLISH ILLITERATE... LOL] , stupid, selfish and greedy who think drugs, laziness, sloth, dishonesty are the NORM. God even says that He is JUST and He MUST destroy the wicked 'UN-believers' [sic] in the world for the sake of His servants/ followers. Does it look like the majority of people in the USA are followers of Christ? If that we so, we might have voted a real Christian into office, or at the very least some one who stands to PROTECT our Christian based CONSTITUTION-- and that would mean we had just a a little more time to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead, now we are in dire fear that we could lose all of our freedoms including the divine RIGHT to practice our Christian Faith, in the Last place left in the world. Oh, BTW, Christians are NOT to be COWARDS either [see Rev. 21:8]. As it is now, Christians are persecuted more than anyone else in the USA! Ask yourself one question: How did you vote, and how does YOUR church or Faith feel about everything I just said??

Won't it be cool to be safe in the proverbial Ark of God all sealed up-- and than it starts to rain ? We will have to look out the window and watch others drowning, relatives and friends who just would not believe and accept Jesus as their personal Savior. Did we do our level best to help them draw near to God in these last days? Or were we too afraid of what they might think of us. Do we have the fortitude to comment on Christian based Blogs/ Journals and leave our REAL name and email address, to stand up and support our brothers and sisters who actually put their heads on the block as they WITNESS about the "Truth that will set men free??"

Have a great day!

Hi Tom. I do agree with all of it. I do still pray for this country, and I always will- eventhough I know it will (if it hasn't permanently already) be as wicked and under judgment as the rest of the world. I know that ONLY Jesus will make all things right. I just pray even that our leaders would know His truth and Word- be saved by Him as well-
Great post brother of mine!

Good post, Tom. I agree. This world is a messed up place. We must remain in the world as Jesus prayed, "I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world" (John 17.15-16). We are here to be a witness, salt, and light. Praise God for believers who have the courage to stand up for what they beleive, walk the talk, and pray for their leaders according to the Scripture (i Timothy 2.1-2). God knows they need it!

Great post Tom and I agree with you. It seems to me evil is taking over, just look at how merciless people are with their random killings. It's only going to get worse I'm afraid.

The coming of the Lord will take care of all evil and thenew Jerusalem will be the best place to live.

We need to join Jesus' army and put on the Sword, Helmet, Belt, Sheild, Sandals and the Breastplate of God; Ephesians: 6; 13-17
