Bill Wilson got it right again, but reminded me with a little 'tweak' that.... if God does not bring judgment on the USA for our 'collective sins' of electing a person LIKE the coming anti-Christ, God may just allow natural powers to blow down our house of cards... like the financial melt down that could happen at any time. Being a student of History, I will tell you all a little secret: Waging, mounting and sustaining a WAR is very expensive !! When you sit down and figure what every single soldier in the field carries into battle, his gear, weapons, food, etc., and what about the price of ONE Tomahawk missile ?? Having been a former helicopter door gunner, I know how much "Av-gas", JP-4 and 5 cost, just to fill up the 'ship' [bird --helicopter] one time! The diameter of the filling gas hose spout is huge compared to our normal civilian auto gas nozzle delivery system! And when ever we 'had to stop' at the POL dump for re-fueling, we all had to pee [urinate] too [pilots too]... right there in the open... TMI ?
Bill hit a great point with inserting 2nd John 7, 2 John 7: "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist." These people are not allies of the American people or their way of life. They are not allies of the one true God!!
Friends, I might become loose and goofy again, if I didn't 'keep my guard up' be constantly reading and meditating on God's Word, the KJV Bible [Please see: biblefortoday.org] DAILY ! The book of Hebrews contains: "Do not forsake the frequent gathering of yourselves as some do..." In other words, GO TO THE WEEKLY [not WEAKLY] Meetings at church if there is a good,. Bible reading church near you ! If not, then YOU ARE THE CHURCH, and you need to seek out other real Christians near you who are firm Believers.
I just found an older Vietnam Veteran, Navy, age 75, "Born-Again CHRISTIAN just two door down the same street that we live in yesterday !!! You'd better believe that we are going to get together soon. His name is Pete, and his stomach was removed by the VA..... he had to have two surgeries. His stomach was literally 'tied in a knot' and totally messed up, so the Milwaukee [WI] VAMC -[HOSPTIAL] removed all of his stomach and screwed up royal [of course] and had to go back and repair the damage they did the first time ! I was at the VA again today for some pulmonary tests -- breathing, at 0800 hours. Is it any wonder that I am hyper-alert when ever I roll into those VAMC doors ? But my new friend likes me and we will have much to talk about, I'm sure, as he is a born-again Christian gentleman. He has a truck too, but no phone. What drew him into my front door? The Army-Vet-RVN- decals on my '07 Dodge Ram truck!
I want to be a magnet that people will trust, respect, honor, so that I can approach them with the Gospel! That, and taking care of my pretty wife, Terri, and loving her, SUPPORTING HER, teaching her the Bible, are prob. the only reasons why God has kept me on this Earth so far, IMHO, NOW AT AGE 64. I eat and sleep too, but....sharing the Gospel is my main, primary function these days. BTW, Terri is already doing much better with her new Diabetic life style. She told me that it's hard -- but she can and will do it. It's strange how a small catastrophe in our lives happens like her new physical condition- Diabetes, and my own chest discomfort draws us close -- and all the stupid arguments and disagreements just vanish away--- and we wonder why we ever had them !! Life to us is very precious, but we CHOOSE to surrender and give our lives to the Christ, forever! THAT is what real love is all about--- even to the Death! Soldiers in war and combat fight and DIE for some obscure Gov't idea.... or just maybe a gas pipeline going thru the Middle East and onto Europe--- and it's all about oil, gas, money, power and greed !!! So WE Christians reserve the right to surrender our very lives for something that we can PROVE is right and correct, and honorable, according to our KJV Bible! We ARE Soldiers of Christ --- not perfect --- just Forgiven, and we know where are real Home is.... Heaven!
