TGIF ! Thank Goodness It's Friday, and the Super Bowl is this Sunday ! I was to a Green Bear Packer game at Milwaukee, WI., back in the 1960's, in uniform, with my Dad, as they played the Chicago Bears that day, and the field got so wet and muddy that we could barely see the numbers on the players' Jerseys ! I also played 4 years of high school football and had a good time and made some life long friends, too. I was blessed to be able to participate in many wholesome things growing up, and I had a very active life, mostly happy. Thank You, Lord !
But I never, ever figured that our world and the USA would turn out the way it is right now, in 2017 ! By 'sleeping at the switch' most of us Americans allowed our Society to digress and sink to a very low level that now resembles ancient Sodom and Gomorrah in the Old Testament of the KJV Bible !
As the author of the post down below [one of my favorite speakers/ writers !] points out.... it's a huge miracle that our Father, God, has somehow NOT destroyed our country by now !! Sorry to burst your bubble... but someday, and that might be THIS VERY YEAR --2017, we might see the Father's wrath, in a global collapse ! But certain things that the Bible outlines must happen in their proper 'Order.' By Studying the special bible Books of, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Revelation, we can keep our fingers on the world's heart beat/ and pulse. Many bible smart Christians 'feel' that the election of President Trump, just many put a "stay" or a "reprieve" on our execution, so to speak.
Now, this doesn't mean that we are 'out of the woods,' and should 'party down' and get loose ! I feel that this is the time to repent, draw closer to the Lord Jesus Christ, do His Will, and also invite others into that state of Grace and Happiness ! If you have read my humble blog before, you will know what I am talking about, and how to go about doing just that. It's calls the, "Fruit of the Lips," sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Too, I have recently looked into buying a Solar generator, just in case our power grid could shut down, one way or another. We have many twisted people right here in the USA, Illegally and not, who want to hurt us, cripple us, and do us great harm !! And taking out our power grid / electricity, especially in the Winter time, could do many of us great damage and HURT ! Beware.
I am not going to post anything here that I don't know for sure -- from my first hand experience, that doesn't work. But I am looking at a system now, that might cost me, $2K ! That is a lot of money for me, and others. In the meantime, I think I will stock up on Beans ! At least I can run a generator on the gas....... lol.
February 3rd, 2017On Friday, January 27, President Donald Trump stunned the world again.
What did he do this time? He kept another campaign promise. Or, at least he began the process for keeping that promise.
The President signed an Executive Order titled: "Protection of the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States."
Briefly put, this order temporarily suspended the entry into the United States of all refugees for 120 days. It barred Syrian refugees indefinitely, and it blocked entry into the country for 90 days for citizens of seven predominately Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
Judging by the outcry from the Left and the mainstream media, you would have thought the President set fire to America's national forests! Or torn down the Statue of Liberty.
In truth, temporary halts to immigration are not that uncommon. President Obama did it. President Bush did it. Famously, President Carter did it to Iran.
Judging by the hue and cry, though, President Trump has started World War Three!
House Speaker Paul Ryan explained the order well. He said: "The President has a responsibility to the security of this country.... I support the refugee resettlement program. We're a generous country; it's important. But we can be generous and watch our national security at the same time. We need to pause and we need to make sure that the vetting standards are up to snuff so we can guarantee the safety and security of our country."
President Trump told the press at the Pentagon, "We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas."
Sounds reasonable to me.
By the way, only a couple of hundred immigrants were briefly detained while their paperwork was confirmed. No one was detained permanently.
However, thousands were inconvenienced. Some grievously. Not by the government or by immigration reviews, but by the protestors who shut down airports and streets. Even New York City taxi drivers (who are mostly immigrants, some illegal) got in on the action. For more than an hour, they refused to pick up passengers at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.
President Trump also did something else that should encourage the Christian world. He told David Brody of CBN that he is going to try to rectify the glaring injustice that has been inflicted by the Obama administration on Christian refugees from Syria.
He said, "...if you were a Christian from Syria, it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States. If you were a Muslim, you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible.... I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them."
As I've reported before, the United Nations, the U.S. Congress, and other countries have recognized that there is a Christian genocide occurring in Syria. But President Obama appeared to refuse to allow any Christians to escape the carnage and come to the U.S. In fact, in 2016, 11,000 Syrian refugees were allowed into the United States, but that 11,000 included only 56 Christians!
Meanwhile, the Left and the globalists who want to overwhelm the United States with migrants are trying a new strategy to defeat the President's attempts to secure the sovereignty of the nation. They are labeling this attempt to stem the incoming flow of potential terrorists as "Islamophobia."
Never mind that the world's largest Muslim nations were not included in the temporary ban. Never mind that the words "Muslim" or "Islam" never appear in the Executive Order. Never mind that three of the seven nations are officially recognized as "state supporters of terrorism" and that the other four are war zones that are hotbeds of terrorist activities.
The opponents know they don't have a leg to stand on in opposing the President's legal authority or his wisdom, so they're trying to invoke their ominous ally of "political correctness" to distract Americans from the real issue. Or to shame them into silence.
That is the Left's war strategy now. And it's proving to be incredibly effective. Use over-the-top labels (or mis-labels) to brand their opponents. Doubt the veracity of the "man-made climate change" evidence and you become a "climate denier." That label is so stupid it's laughable. Who doubts there is "climate?" Unfortunately, the non-thinking masses gobble it up.
Doubt the wisdom of letting men use the restroom or shower facilities with young women -- even little girls -- and you're labeled (absurdly) a "homophobe." Who wants to be a homophobe? Especially if you're not! Which, by the way, very few people are!
Think Islam is an oppressive political ideology that deprives women, children, gays, and non-Muslims of their rights and, often, their lives? Then you're a "hater!" Even if you're an intelligent, sensitive, thoughtful person who only wants the best for your family and community, question Islam and the Left labels you a "hater." Once again, who wants to be a "hater?"
See how this works? Truth has nothing to do with it. The Left and their globalist mentors do not value the truth, only power. And the shame they inflict on normal Americans by the use of untrue labels does the dirty work.
Don't believe me? Look at the recent "March for Life" in Washington, D.C. Scores of thousands of people -- mostly women -- gathered to affirm the sanctity of ALL life. Even the living person in a woman's womb.
But if you get your news from the mainstream media, you were told that those thousands of women were actually "opponents of abortion rights!" As if it's the "right" of anyone to kill an innocent child about to be born into the world.
Once again, it's an attempt to shame those who favor the right to life (it's the first right enunciated in our nation's Declaration of Independence) into standing down because they don't want to be thought of as an "opponent" to another woman's "rights."
God Himself warned us that we are not to conform to the ways of our wicked neighbors. At one point, the children of Israel sought to appease pagan gods by sacrificing their own infants to them, notably the "god" Moloch.
They would place their small children onto a white hot brass altar and literally burn them alive. The priests would beat drums loudly so that the fathers would not hear the screams of their tiny babies and change their minds about sacrificing them.
Just writing these words brings tears to my eyes. I cannot even begin to fathom such cruelty and depravity. And these were God's "chosen people!" See how devious and dangerous Satan is?
Yet we in America, in the last 40 plus years, have legally murdered 60 million of our own children to appease the false gods of "self-determination," "inclusiveness," and "political correctness."
The prophet Jeremiah and others warned Israel that God Himself will judge harshly those who do these things, both individually and as a nation. I keep asking myself how America has thus far escaped God's hand.
I have only one answer: His mercy toward us.
Perhaps because there is a body of believers, and even many non-believers, who fight against the unspeakable wickedness of abortion, God has spared us.
This tells me that maybe the "March for Life" is also a march for God's continued mercy upon our nation and its very existence.
Abortion may not be a big deal to you, but it sure is to God!
Finally, this week I am going to step back a bit from our usual focus on "end-times" prophecy and examine some of the prophecies we call "messianic prophecies."
It can be clearly demonstrated that some 300 of the Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah found literal fulfillment in the birth, life, and death of Jesus of Nazareth.
The chances of this happening by mere coincidence are mathematically so staggering that it's impossible to calculate. You've heard me say often that the Bible enjoys 100% accuracy confirmed by history.
And if it was right about the past, it's wise to believe its predictions about the future will be accurate, also.
That means simply that we should get ready for the soon appearance of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
