Hi Friends, and Fellow Christians,
I thought I was thru posting today until I read, "THE DAILY JOT" --- by Bill Wilson.
Sometimes I get involved with commenting in various web sites and discussions, and I find that some folks are 'SUPER PATRIOTIC.' Well, I consider myself a Patriot too, after all, being a Disabled Combat Veteran -- Vietnam: 68-70, etc., and that at least GIVES ME THE RIGHT AND FREEDOM to say what I want, in the good old USA, no more -- no less !
Remember that I am a History buff and also a serious student of the KJV Bible, and I know that our ancient ancestors migrated quite a bit, going from bad, dry, land to more fertile land to grow their crops and grains, etc. No big deal there. I also got involved with an Ethnicity web site to investigate my heritage and was surprised to find out [according to them] that my DNA put me in the British Isles, Scandinavia and Western Europe --Germany. Wow! No wonder I am a wild ass ... LOL ! But, the power of the Holy Spirit, thankfully, has changed much of my personality, even as I am a "work in progress" and the Lord certainly is not done smoothing out/ off the rough spots. But, my fellow Christians: Isn't it a miracle and wonderful thing how God sacrificed His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so that ALL OF OUR SINS could be forgiven, and going to heaven is more than just a "Maybe" or an illusive dream. It's a firm God-breathed reality, and we Christians are charged with the dual responsibility of: Worshiping God the Father, and also sharing the Good News of Salvation thru Jesus Christ ! ! So..... We are Christians FIRST, and Americans second. Period.
Go figure that all the Christians in 'under ground China' number more than Europe and the USA, combined ! We are no better and no worse than them... they are our brothers in Christ! They in China are praying for US ! Too, I am hurt, upset and dismayed that my ancestral home of Germany has reverted back into a commercial, Heathen - Pagan, country, as they too persecute true Christians, but allow the savage Islamic hordes invade THEIR native country of Germany ! Hey! They are only asking for big trouble there, and I thought they were so smart and advanced, but they are Socialist ! Really, folks, God doesn't look at humans being so different --- but what's in their minds and hearts, and IF THEY ACCEPT HIS SON as their Savior.... I spent 6 months in Germany and got to learn their culture and studied the language [and still am]. They are a beautiful race of humans, but what good is it if they don't bend knee to Christ ? But it's the same old thing here in the U.S. with 8 good, Christian black leaders and teachers of the bible being gunned down by a goofy, racist white guy in a historic mid-Atlantic church a few months ago. What a loss of good lives... and if they indeed were TRUE CHRISTIANS -- they were my brothers, also up in Heaven now.
Enjoy the great short article.
