After getting some texted wise counsel from an old friend, I deleted some 'offensive' information from this blog post this morning.... and hope to bite my tongue in the future --- and bury the tomahawk, I pray. Thank you, D.O.
I wish the 'black radical --hate America groups in the inner cities' could read: The Daily Jot, down below that I love to post and share all the time !! America has done wrong in it's short history, but also done a lot of good for so many millions of people all over the world ! ! I would know this, because when I used to 'work for the Gov't' in Germany and Vietnam, I saw much of the good we did to help other people who needed food, shelter and clothing ! And we fought THEIR ENEMIES and our people died for them, too! Just take a trip to D.C. sometime and visit the Wall. Some of my buddies are up there. And when turkeys like Obama and the Dims crap on us, cut our benefits, pay, freeze pensions, etc, and even try to take away our Medical benefits, that steams my butt ! Sorry, but Veterans can only take so much and then they will rebel. Veterans are the largest contingent of homeless people, and the Govt would just love if we all vanished and blew away with the wind. After all, they need that same money to help ILLEGAL ALIENS that they sneak in our country, under the radar..... LOL !
And yet, who has more courage than our Christian missionaries who travel to different hostile countries to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ ?? And when they are butchered by Islamic fiends, folks like Obama and the Dims just turn a blind eye, and go on with their golf game. Folks, I know that there is so much hot debate over who is best for the Oval Office next year, but if Hillary gets in, we will be much worse off than we have it now. EXPECT the Gov't to take away our guns, ammo, bibles and FREEDOMS !!! And right now some banks are LIMITING HOW MUCH YOU CAN WITHDRAW FROM YOUR OWN BANK ACCOUNT !! Do you want proof ? OK. No problem. But I knew this was going down many years ago.
Now days, I just invest in my own future needs.... and I can recommend the best place to invest. WWW.MoneyMetal.com Phone: 800-800-1865. Protect your Investments from the Gov't sticky fingers. You will soon see and feel what I mean by that....
I ate 10 hot, roasted chili peppers today with my great Mexican lunch at the best eating place in Iron Mtn., MI !! Wow, what wholesome, fresh veggies, rice, shrimp, chicken and beef, all in the same dish, and some cool libation to wash it all down. OK, go look that one up, UPPERS ! lol. The place is called: Carlo's Cantina. I am there often, even though today I had a sweet younger lady help clean my huge 'barn' where I live, in a different town... and she roasted some turkey legs for me, just the way I like them. Thanks, A.R. ! You are my valued Christian sister.
I was strong enough to lift my big old air compressor by myself this morning, and haul it home where it belongs.
OK ! It's time to kick back and watch the News for a very little bit, before I gag, and move on to a movie, I hope, before I go to bed and rest my weary old, jaded, body.
Warm Regards, and Happy Thoughts,

The prophetic destiny of a sheep nation
There are many who believe that nations will not matter in the end times, that only individuals will receive their reward or judgment. There are many diverse teachings about prophecy and nationalism. We should all understand that we cannot stop the march of prophecy, but we can determine our place in it. As individuals, we make up the nations. The nation we live in reflects the people, especially in the United States where we get to choose our leaders. While some are teaching that you can be a Christian or a patriot, that you must choose between one or the other, this is not necessarily scripturally accurate and can be a very dangerous end time strategy. It may not be either-or, but rather both-and. Choose wisely.
Nationalism and patriotism can be a bad thing or a good thing. History indicates, for example, that German nationalism led to the holocaust. Islamic nationalism, which is a combination of fascism, Marxism, and false religion, has a millennial-plus history of death, destruction, slave trade, human trafficking, drug trafficking, civil and human rights violations, and persecution of Christians and Jews that continues wherever it exists today. In both examples, God's people suffer at the hands of such nationalism. America, however, guarded against such persecution with a secular Constitution that enumerated the powers of government with limitations and allowed freedom of speech and religion.
The result was a nation that supported Christian evangelism, Christian ideals became a light for justice and freedom around the world. There can be no honest discussion about preaching the gospel to the uttermost part of the earth without mentioning America. Even as this nation's light grows dimmer with leadership that does not do right in the eyes of the Lord, America still sends more missionaries, more goodwill, more bibles, more comfort and Christian love than most other nations combined. Yes, the darkness continues to war against this light, but let us not despise our nation for its faults, but rather pray and act to shine the light of Christ in all things, that our nation can be shown worthy, even through our deeds.
This is an important "both/and." In Matthew 24 and 25 Jesus Christ explains what will happen in the end times. In Matthew 25:31-34, Christ says, "When the Son of man shall come in his glory...And before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." This is about both nations and individuals, and how they treat others, especially the brethren of Christ. For a nation whose people comfort the stranger, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, and feed the hungry inherit the kingdom. It's good to be a patriotic sheep.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
