The First Three Months!
Happy New Year, America
Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:
Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains Tax went from 15 % to 28%
Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%
Remember this 'fact;' if you have any money, the Democrats want it! All these taxes were passed with only Democrat votes. Not one Republican voted to do these taxes. Remember this come election time. And make sure your friends and neighbors know this info too!
These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act, otherwise known as Obama care
Isn't the above news encouraging ?? Ha! And I can tell you all from careful study that this will just be the BEGINNING of "good things to come our way" in the good, old, USA!! Yes, friends, there really is a common sense of foreboding in the air, even by the Democrats and Independents this early Spring, with not much to look forward to... unless you are a Bible smart Christian, and that excludes perhaps the majority of so-called CHINO's [Christians in name only], who go to church but just sit there and have their 'ears tickled' as mentioned in Timothy from the apostle Paul. Hint: If you get along with everyone, especially the Gov't, and the WH, and Homeland Security, etc., you probably are not a real Christian... sorry. Because, in the 'Last Days' "Perilous times shall come..." Just read the entire chapter of 2nd Timothy 3, but pay attention to verse, 12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." Yes, dear friends, we are just starting to realize this now, and even in the USA !! There is a war against the God of the Bible !!
I suppose that too many of my Blog followers and buddies are growing weary/ tired of me repeating myself about the 'Last Days' of this wicked system of things, but the fact is that the Rapture COULD come now and any time... POOF ! That is another reason why STD [Satan the Devil] is so active, like a hungry lion now ! He already misleads the entire inhabited Earth, but true Christians are his main, primary target. Lord knows that he pounds on me too, so I must pray hard all the more ! Some of us almost wish that this business was all over, or that we were dead... sorry. But that would be the cowardly way out --- and we ARE Soldiers of Christ. We must continue to tough it out. But helping other brothers and sisters whom we see struggling is a fine, honorable thing to do. I have been doing just that for a number of years, and now I could use a helping hand and more encouragement. Because we older guys are fighting a number of battles at the same time. One with our flesh, our broken down bodies, temptation, perhaps with our wayward spouses, who may not be Christians, or show lack of it. Just like, some wives and husbands hate to even crack open the KJV Bible and study as a family !!! Personally, I feel that the Lord blessed me with a lot of talent, knowledge and experience, plus the Holy Spirit, and to just remain silent without anyone to teach and help is a slight and a disservice to me. That is how I feel right now! How ever, I dare not hang my dirty laundry out in public.... I guess that, if I keep my nose clean and pray about this long enough, the Lord will bring someone my way, so I can share [NOT show off] my "gifts."
And again, only to bear witness to the truth of the Scriptures, our God has "allowed" Obama to rise to power, believe it or not, for a specific reason !! Prophecy MUST be fulfilled and God must be found true. Well respected writers and scholars agree with me, that the USA/ America is never mentioned in the whole Bible, and so it is very likely that we will be a 3rd world nation, if we still exist at all ! We will be bankrupt soon, and with that all the other nations will have trouble economically too, because our combined economies are all "inter-linked" and dependent on each other, at least to a certain extent. Our money is devalued, and it will get much worse, I predict, in months... not years ! In a few days I will know more. And all the promises about Obama-care were bogus from the start, and it was never about HEALTH... but CONTROL and POWER over the people !!! And when the people finally wake up, it will be too late.
The point that I need and want to make with this post, is: I hope that the Freedom Movement of true Patriots can and will make a difference in our lives this Spring and Summer, and I will also help as much as I can. Just remember that God is going to have things His way in the end, because His Word says that, "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." ~2nd Peter 3: 10. Verse 11: "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness....." WE can and should KNOW for sure that WE are going to heaven !! Sometimes I have a skull harder than a field stone from Wisconsin... lol. But I am blessed with an understanding... especially AFTER I ask God to give me insight, or someone on the same wave length as me counsels me, and finally one day later, it kicks in, and I 'see the light !'
A friend stopped by today to visit and encourage me, and I listened to him [even though he may have thought that I wasn't...], and now it's just beginning to make sense! I am kind of 'trapped' up here where I live now, and not the happiest man, but now I realize [I pray] that the time is so short, that I may as well hunker down, and stay where I am, enjoying some of the fruits of MY investments and labor.
Today, and yesterday, I was suffering from a hurt, strained back, and could not get much done. And the weather went back to Winter mode for a few days again, spoiling my plans to ride my new 650 Kaw dirt bike. Oh well... Some folks just love to break their anatomy with different projects, thinking that they are some how "SINNING" if they take it easy and relax in their latter years. I was blessed to work my anatomy to the bone ALL MY LIFE, and retired with full pension at age 54, besides being DISABLED at the same time. I did not plan things that way, but it could be worse, you know ! I use this time, my blessed retirement to write, blog, study, read, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I also pay all of our bills, on time, invest some $$$, and just live a quiet life of dignity, if I can.
God Bless All Believers !
