Matthew 24:4-14

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.


One need only look to last Friday, the day after the day when everyone supposedly gave thanks for all they had (...up to that point, I guess) to understand that we, as a nation, have a problem. And, since God sees fit to start His judgment at His house (1Peter 4:17), then it is a safe bet that our problem as a nation can be traced back to its pew warmers.

I'm not going into the list, it is long, nasty and bloody and does not need a Congressional committee to have a hearing on it to know that it exists. I do know this, as some wise sage put it sometime back;

"Because nations are temporal entities and not eternal, their sins must be judged in the here and now, for there is no judgment for them in eternity."---paraphrase, currently tracking source.

If we as a nation do not repent, then we as a nation will fall...and all the evidence points to right soon.

Where is your treasure stored up?

Where lies your anchor?

To whom will you/do you call out to?

...just saying.

BTW: The problem people have with Tim Tebow is not his praying, it's his faith and that, for once, there's someone on the field whose testimony off the field matches his genuflecting on the field. American "Christian", stand up and take note or sit down and shut up...

Who wrote that quote you gave?

It's good to see you posting again, Ms. Marcian.

Do hold my feet to the was careless of me to put a paraphrase as a quote and not to properly attribute it to its author.

I will come back to you with an answer shortly.

Blessings, grace and peace, Br'er Shaygetz
