I used to think skunks were kind of cute. Always got along great with them,from a distance. Basic rule to remember , don't bother them and they wont leave you breathless. So I'm sitting reading some articles from the mid east area and in walks the ugliest young skunk I've ever seen. It's two stripes looked just fine until halfway down it's back. Then it looked more like a the guy who stripes the road had one to many and took over the job. Don't ever think that God has no sense of humor. This poor creature had a tail fastened to his back end that looked more like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree than anything else. One more thing . He has no manners. I tell you, he must have gone off at least four times before the cat and me let it know it wasn't welcome. I wonder how many times my clothes will have to be washed.
Why is it that the media ,even talk radio, will tell everyone just how evil radical Islam is and how they are fighting a HOLY war with Israel and the west but no time is given over to discuss our LORDS plans for this time in history?After all this is His-story.We have lived in this great nation for over two hundred years and until recently were blessed by the Lord and prospered.Our downfall started slowly but picked up pace in the 60's when prayer and any mention of the bible was removed from our public schools. Our government didn't stop at that. They have slowly removed all displays based on Christianity from public lands. We are asleep at the wheel to allow this to happen.The separation of church and state has been taken out of context and has been reformed to mean something so very different from what the founders intended.
Now we have an administration that has befriended those nations set against Israel and turned a cold shoulder towards our only friend in the middle east.For a man professing to be a Christian, Mr. Obama has shown a certain lack of knowledge when it comes to Gods chosen people. This lack of understanding our relationship with Israel has been part of the reason I believe God has withdrawn his long standing blessing of our country. The blame should not be placed only on Mr. Obama. Millions of people voted him into office and prior administrations helped to set things on this road to our falling out of Grace.The Lord speaking to Abram explains this very well in Genesis 12: 2-3 "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." The Lord is speaking of Israel.
The middle east is a hornets nest full to overflowing with people that hate the God of Israel. Since they can't attack God directly,they will vent that hate on Gods chosen people. No nation will help defend Israel.They will sit on the sideline and watch to see the outcome. I believe those watching are in for a surprise. The Lord will not let Israel fall.
We are running out of time to help those fence setters make a decision to accept Christ . God knows the very last person on earth who will make that decision.When that happens, Christ will call his bride. That day is soon. Be prepared and keep looking up and watch for the Masters return.
God bless you
