Like the Cedars of Lebanon
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and and not we ourselves
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Lately if you sit and listen to the National Pastime - people are Glum. Politics....
Lately, if you are not very, very partisan - politics is discouraging.
The sheep seem to have been given the fleece. And it didn't dry out to being odorless.
However, we are not looking at the balance of real life, the majority pray, go to Church, and God is not going to 'stick it to us.' Christians should vote for Christians. It should be a priority. But we have elected people, who once in power - ran the other way to the other end zone with the ball. The Supreme Court is not very pleasing lately. Dear God.
Now, if Christians tried to vote for Christians and that didn't turn out - why wouldn't the God of Love and Mercy want to have compassion for those who pray???????????
The news seems grim. But listen to Dan Carlin, the Historian, and rejoice. Count your blessings. And get away from
Let's talk about the times. When Genghis Khan was out making sure he was in control of nothing he enjoyed running, Khan was not known to sit and delighted in culture and life, but enjoyed all the conflict he could find - he murdered up to 70 million people. That is 22% of the United States population today. And Everyone Said it was the end of the world! End times. I surely understand, hearing Dan Carlin, why people said that. The solution came with the heavy alcoholism of the Khans' and the Christian determination to marry into them and love them to health. And it took quite some time.
End times. Travel will increase. Knowledge will increase. The hearts of many will grow cold. Fathers turn away from sons. Like not care for their mothers and place themselves first.
End Times - Eschatology - Christians and Muslims will revolt and cause trauma, causing people will despise the conflict saying God is a mess. We need no borders and a one world order - one world leader
Look a Dinosaur ! (Let's be clear! That's a Revelation biblical joke on ADHD and chicken.)
We have just seen Brexit.
NOW - This is the other direction from end times!!!
Now if you want a scare, Massive Animal Mortality.
National Solution Needed ???
U.S. Methane 'Hot Spot' Bigger than Expected
What they found was not heartening. Mass Mortality Events (MMEs) are “rarely placed in a broader context,” the study’s authors reported. But they seem to be happening at an increased rate for birds, marine invertebrates and fish since the 1940s — even when researchers took into account that such events are more likely to be reported now than they were 75 years ago.
In pitiful animal die-offs across the globe — from antelopes to bees to seabirds — climate change may be culprit.
It might be the massive carbons released in the Four Corners leak in New Mexico.
The Book of Revelation tells us as clearly as Isaiah explained Jesus as Messiah. When the Wise Men went to go see King Herod to see the King of Kings. For God's Good Purpose.
Here is one summation - subject to God interpretation of God Words - God alone Knows - the Christians complain about their loss of rights, the Muslims create war. Christians respond with war. The World becomes weary of these godly People. God followers are despised for their wars. And a one world order results in a world leader arriving after world wars. The Leader does like Caesar and exalts himself as god, marking his followers on the head. Great human extermination will happen.
In the 1200's Muslims were creating war and Genghis Khan stopped them.
Queen Isabelle and King Ferdinand of Spain fought to have the cities taken by murder, back from the murderers.
Thomas Jefferson was part of this conflict centuries later.
The answer is not more war. It is not allowing the spread of hate. The allowance of haters to rule and spread hate.
I firmly believe Father God is listening to prayers and if we pray each day diligently, God is going to help. I know I forget to pray national and global prayers. Let's do this.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
The Narrow Path has a determination of our prayers, words, actions. Choices made appealing to Father God. Not the picks of the world. Allowing Him to make the Narrow Path for His Glory and Sufficiency. Using the words we would say more carefully. Apologizing when our words were not what would He would have chosen for His Child.
Our times of refreshment are in You.
Cover me in the Name of Jesus to direct my path to be Your Path. With Jesus as my Shepherd, I will not be in want.
Lead me in Your pastures. Let me know this path . Help my seeds to be fruitful (thank You for the tangerine and tomatoes) , placing good seeds and give love, encouragement and tenderness on this meaningful journey. Quiet me down and lead me the Path of Righteousness for Your Namesake. Jesus the Lord.
Let Your Living Water restore my soul from being in the World and not of the World.
Help me know Your Spirit of Truth be one of self-control and Faith and not of Fear.
You are my Shepherd, the Guardian of my Soul. Let your rod and staff comfort me that I may comfort others.
Let me have Joy in You and wisdom to see Your Narrow Path You'd provide is more than sufficient and filled with a hope and future of good.
Help me, Jesus, that my footsteps will leave as my footprints goodness and mercy all the days of my life. That in the Victory of Jesus Christ, I will live all my days as Heaven is at hand, knowing I dwell in Your House forever.
Lifting up Prayers in Expectations that my needs, my loved ones needs and those of Churches, Communities, this Nation and the Believers all over the World are Held in Your Hand. Amen in Jesus!
♔ Lord Jesus Saves! †
