....That is a picture of my Mom and I, on her 50th Wedding Anniversary in WI., back in the late 1990's.
I have said many times that I am open to constructive criticize and self improvement and friendly debate. I have also said that I watch the political 'game' out of amusement, but ready to vote when the time comes, for the best Christian, Conservative candidate.... BUT, all Christians who study their bibles KNOW that NO HUMAN CAN TRULY CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER ! ! Only God can, and will, do that, just as He promised ! But if some head of state [ newly elected President ] can hold the U.S. Constitution in tact and protect our Freedoms and Rights, GREAT !! That will give us a little more time to reach those who want and need to learn about the Gospel ! What ever happens, God IS in control of our future. Now.... we must understand that as God "allows" the world to take it's natural sinful course, man will probably destroy himself and pollute the world, and so at some given time God promises to Rapture up His servants and followers of His Son, Jesus, and place them in a "safe place" just before things get really dicey and super dangerous, or else we all would be killed, exterminated, just like Satan wants. And those "Left Behind" will suffer and see some really bad stuff. So, please, never even say that, 'things can't get any worse,' because they can, and will !
Now, those of us who are computer literate and read the truth about different parts of the world know that places like Argentina are going thru some tough times as their goofy, Socialist Gov't cannot supply them food at the right time, so huge, long lines of people must wait in lines for get just the basics in food, medicine, etc. But, as WE all know, main line 'News Media' in the so-called, 'Free World' is blocked so that the average person is not aware of what Socialism is, or how it works !! And younger people and poor people are actually wanting to VOTE for people like HRC --- Hillary Clinton and the other Socialist ??? History is not taught anymore and so how can people make any kind of educated guess ? The so-called, CINO's ---'Christian Church' is also asleep or watering down the Gospel all over the USA, so that abortion and the Gay agenda are now the "New Normal."
I might have told you that I have a new "doctor" at the local VAMC, whom I met yesterday for a check up, a very pretty, blonde, young woman, is my Nurse Practitioner, who treated me very well and was kind to me. but I had a chance to witness to her about the Gospel and the bible, and I was honestly amazed at how insulated her little world is when it comes to investing in "Metals" --- teaching her that our American dollar is on it's way out, and soon to be worthless, IMHO.... and she started taking notes while I was talking.... LOL. So I also gave her a small bible tract/ pamphlet that I carry in my wallet, and my business card with my phone number and email address, if she has any questions. It's things, places, people, and times like this that makes me understand why God led me U.P. here in the first place, to "USE ME" in a good way, to help folks know about the Gospel. And it's a great, warm, fuzzy feeling to be 'used' in this way by the Holy Spirit ! I am only "Dust in the Wind," and nothing more.
I am praying lately for myself, about my being lonely and alone on my 67th birthday, although the Lord cares for me and gives me enough money and funds to pay my bills and eat out sometimes. I also pray for my friends, and those I email and talk to on the phone. I pray that I may not be taken advantage of by crafty, loose, hurtful women who might sense that I am lonely.... and try to milk me --- see how much money they can get from me before I figure things out, etc. That has happened too many times in my life, even though I have my guard up and check people out, it still happens to many people all over the place, both men and women, and it will only get worse. But I don't want to be an old, grumpy man, too paranoid or too cautious. The right woman may just come along, and I might scare her away.... Ha!
It's just that I feel like a stranger in a different place without total support right now, and a minimum of smart friends up here where I can ask for help, information and directions. That is what close friends are all about ! I thought I had a good, "Base Camp" of people whom I could call to get a different prospective, but that group VANISHED like a fart in the wind when I got "removed from my old residence..." and people naturally started to take sides with the "odd man out in the cold." You know how women always like to stick together, and the big, old man MUST be the bad guy, right ? Well, I don't want to start any more HURT, but I am just trying to explain what circumstances I am now in. People are busy, especially on week ends and holidays, so 'NEVER HAVE AN ACCIDENT or run out of medicine or food on a week end or a holiday !!'
It's too bad that some folks are like parasites, like blood sucking insects or intestinal worms that attach themselves on a human being and suck his resources dry as a bone, and then move on to another 'target.' Instead of doing honest work for a living, many people now learn to scam innocent people who DO WORK FOR A LIVING, and just find a 'host body' to live on, and control. Some people are emotionally insecure and other sense that, and attach themselves for a nice, long, ride, until the money runs out, and then they run out. I have a friend named, A.R. who is street savvy and smart, and many times a woman can smell out and detect another woman parasite easier than the man can. Men don't always think 'correctly.' I am happy and glad to have some friends who watch and guard MY back, to make sure that other folks I meet are not just my "friends" to scam me. The Bible says to be: 'Cautious as serpents, yet innocent as doves.' The 'Older, more mature men'--- in the congregation are also to be savvy enough to spot insincere, predatory, people who might slip into the church and prey upon the members... but sometimes the "brothers" are sleeping, too. But sooner or later the Spirit exposes the wolves for whom and what they really are, and hopefully weeds them out.
There is a larger "weeding detail/ work" being done by the angels right now over all the earth, right before the grand Master comes back to "Collect His Flock of sheep-ike ones," while leaving the wolves behind.... You ALL can know for sure if you are going up with the Master, dear friends, and it's called, being, "Saved." Are you, "Saved ?" Don't you think that it's about time that you knew for sure ? I may be lonely n
ow, but I know that I am Saved, and it's a good feeling. If I had a very beautiful woman, a big, paid off house and care, etc., but wasn't Saved, that would be nagging me day and night, and I doubt that I could enjoy anything I possessed on earth ! Thank about it, friends, and talk about it with your friends and family. Perhaps we can talk about this subject more on another day.
I just want to thank a nice lady named, Ruth, who live way down South in a desert climate, I believe. She emails me sometimes with some nice, good, kind, advice on how to get thru a really tough time/ period in your life, and rely on God. Again, please pray for a friend of mine, Annie, who is anxious about an upcoming knee surgery... and we all hope that things turn out well for her. She has helped me many times in the past, with cleaning and organizing, etc. She has a boy friend.... not me.
But.... another discreet word of advice: If you date questionable women, beware that they don't "talk about your house, and what's in it...." like valuables, etc., Now days with all the poor people on drugs, a wrong word in the wrong group of people could spell a 'house cleaning'... robbery, or worse !! Loose lips --- sink ships ! You really need to examine people's character before you ever "go too far" with them, dating them.... LOL, the Drill Sargents in the Army even told us not to "consort with the enemy" that we might give away some 'intelligence/ secrets' that could later harm the rest of our brothers in combat ! ! Ha! i never would have thought that I'd be using that important training way into my late 60's !! Tomorrow I will be spending my 67th birthday all alone, in my big old house, in a place called, Norway, MI., way out in the boon docks. Oh well, all my good friends/ fellow Veterans told me not to move up here 4 stinking years ago.... and I should have listened to them. Now I am all alone, yet God is training me, using me, protecting me and still loves me. Praise the Lord. Read the Proverbs and Psalms. Everyone suffers when Satan digs into a family and flips things around. Women's Lib, and people being too proud, and not humble enough. Yes, many people suffer after a break up. Sad, but true.
I am so ready for the Rapture to come. Come, Lord Jesus, Come !
