“All spiritual history must have a personnel knowledge for its bedrock…His rule was there all the time, but true to His nature; now that I have received His nature I can see His rule.” -Oswald Chambers, My Utmost to His Highest, August 15
2 Chronicles 28-22-23
22 At the time of his distress, King Ahaz himself became more unfaithful to the Lord. 23 He sacrificed to the gods of Damascus which had defeated him; he said, “Since the gods of the kings of Aram are helping them, I will sacrifice to them so that they will help me.” But they were the downfall of him and of all Israel.
Always turn to the Lord in distress. Crazy things going on in the world today–Shadowgate documentary and discussion last night–the USA cold be in more trouble than originally thought.
The different people complaining Donald Trump wants loyalty. I don’t blame him! Faithfulness!
I, myself, have been having some rough times with a supposed-friend. I need to be better about it–either ride it out or break it off but it cannot continue the way it has been.
I feel the same for the United States. I pray America–en mass–will turn to God. It isn’t about Donald Trump being a good Christian. It isn’t about him being outwardly righteous. God knows his heart; and God will use anyone He wants to fulfill His plans.
Does Revelation say anything about controlling the masses? Is Shadowgate prophesied? I ask, but I will probably never look it up.
Trust on the Lord. Lean not on your own understanding .Our ways are not His ways; our thoughts cannot compare to His thoughts.
5 They are coming from a distant land,
from the farthest horizon—
the Lord and the weapons of his wrath—
to destroy the whole country.
6 Wail! For the day of the Lord is near.
It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
Who is this reference to? Destroy the whole country…How easily could that be done in this day and age? But Donald Trump is brokering peace in the Middle East, Nobel Peace Prize worthy!
9 Look, the day of the Lord is coming—
cruel, with fury and burning anger—
to make the earth a desolation
and to destroy its sinners.
Terrifying! We must not be lax in our rejection of sin. Firm, even staunch, but loving. What a difficult thing at times! Lots of times!
22 Hyenas will howl in the fortresses,
and jackals, in the luxurious palaces.
Babylon’s time is almost up;
her days are almost over.
If the US is “Babylon” as some speculate, this warning is scary, especially in light of the evil that has been going on with pedophilia and worship of–and human sacrifice to–false gods. The Lord has been ignored, ridiculed, and basically flipped off. How much longer can a nation with that lack of character stand?
What would replace the US? What government would move in? Closer to globalism? Or would it be singularly communistic? Would Us Patriots stand for it? How could the Us military fit in? The soldiers are to defend and protect the citizens, as stated in The Constitution. Would they? Or would they be more inclined to follow a general’s murderous orders?
Lord, I pray You life this worry from me–the strain of trying to understand and foresee. I trust You, Lord. Let me rest in You, knowing You have the perfect plan, perfect timing, all the details handled, and everything will bring You glory.
I ask that You wrap me in Your love, keep me level-headed, alert,and still loving You, my neighbors and my one anothers. I pray these things in your Son’s name, Amen.
