reply to post by thejlxc
I had a long reply carefully constructed reply to your most excellent narrative and description of the state of the world.
Your outline is probably one of the best I've read in decades.
I don't have the heart to try and reconstruct my effort that was lost when I hit a wrong button on my trackball.
I'll just post:
which infuriated me when I read it during a long dark night of the soul--looking for comfort..
And, I'll note that I believe that
America was established for 3 basic reasons:
1. To further the Gospel of Jesus The Christ;
2. To help establish and protect Israel until God was ready to 100% take over providing for and protecting Israel after He disciplines her for being
far from Him.
3. To DEMONSTRATE to ALL CREATION that even the most ideal form of government in all recorded history would result in greed, corruption, tyrannical
APART FROM GOD.
I believe this END TIMES ERA is a vivid object lesson to all Creation--that
GOD ALONE IS WORTHY;
GOD ALONE IS ABLE;
GOD ALONE IS LOVE;
GOD ALONE IS RIGHTEOUS;
GOD ALONE has all our best interests at heart.
As Scripture indicates . . . ALL CREATION waits expectantly yearning, groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God [to put things right].
And after literal ARMAGEDDON--things will be put to right.
Until then--the blood will flow in increasing horrific quantities.
At some point even billionaires with their plush bunkers etc. will discover that all their planning and resources have come to devastating naught
apart from God.
And that for all . . . who trust in God and cling to the truths in Psalm 91--GOD IS ABLE; GOD IS FAITHFUL; GOD WILL BE STRONG in behalf of all who
TRUST UTTERLY AND ABANDONED-LY IN GOD . . . .
