In the book of Genesis, God told Abram that he will be the father of many nations. He even changed his name to Abraham. Now Abraham was up in age and so was his wife, Sarah. Sarah laughed when she heard this.

Since both Sarah and Abraham was up in age, Sarah had her maidservant, Hagar sleep with Abraham as the first surrogate. Thus, Ishmael was conceived and born.

Now Ishmael was the father of the Muslims religion. Thus the reason for the feud between the Muslims and the Jews over Israel and Palestine. They both are claiming rights for the promise land in the Middle East.

It was after Sarah gave birth to Isaac that she ordered Abraham to get Hagar and Ishmael away from her son. Like any husband, he knew to obey and honor his wife; but at the same time he had an obligation to his other son as well, like a good father should. He did what he could to make sure that Ishmael was well taken care of.

Fast forward to the beginning of America, America was founded under the Christian values. Our Founding Fathers even put it into our Constitution.

So the Jews, Muslims and Christians share Abraham; who became the father of many nations. Even though the Jews and Muslims are at odds with each others; the Jews and Christians are allies. They weren’t always though. It was the Jews who crucified Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

You may wondered why the Jews were known as God’s chosen people when they were the ones who crucified Jesus Christ. It was because of Abraham and the promise that God made to him.

The Jews had messed up throughout their histories, were put into exile and the Lord brought them back time and time again. That’s the nature of God!

I mean, we all are God’s chosen people when it comes right down to it.

Anyone who would dare attack Israel and the Jews were punished by God. Just like anyone who stand and defend them are bless. It says so in the book of Revelation.

Let’s look at World War 2, Hitler was set on destroying the Jewish community. He eventually committed suicide when he noticed he was losing the takeover of the world.

It was Golda Meir who brought the Jews back to Israel right after World War 2, with the help of America. America made it their obligation to defend Israel from then on. They prosper because of it too.

Things start changing though when oil was discovered in the Middle East. America became dependent on the Middle East for that oil. They became torn between their obligation to Israel and wanting and needing the oil in the Middle East. Some of the Middle Eastern countries were controlled by the Muslims. Thus we get the Muslim terrorist who hate America.

They hate America not only for our Christian views but also for us defending Israel.

Any country who would dare defend Israel and the Jews would be bless by God but become the enemies of those who hated the Jews.

Pres. Jimmy Carter was responsible for the Peace Treaty between Israel and Egypt.

It is the President of the United States job to protect Israel against the Muslims. Yet, under Pres. Obama, he neglected to do that when he sided with the Muslims instead.

Pres. Trump was up for a Nobel Peace Prize because of his peace treaty with Israel. The Jews and the Christians both supported Trump because of it.

Both Rashida Tiab and Ihan Omar were upset of being banned from going to Israel to see family because of their Muslim’s faith. Pres. Trump and the Prime Minister of Israel were concerned about them going because of what damage they could do. They had every rights to be concerned too.

Any good Conservative Republicans know that it’s America’s obligation to protect Israel; whereas, the Progressive Left on the Democrats side are more in protecting the Muslims instead.

Whose sides are you on?

I hope this does this justice for the Jewish people as well as Christians.

The first commandment is There shall be no other gods before me. I, the Lord, God is a jealous God.

We are not to make idols into our gods. Yet, after Moses brought the Israelites out of Egypt, that was what they did.

In the Catholic Church, the Catholic Priest are called, Fathers. I don’t know about you; but I cannot call them, father; even though it’s suppose to be out of respect. They are not fathers. They don’t deserve that title. God is the Father. That is blasphemy! They are making the priests into an idol.

Let’s get to the real reason for this blog. Those are 2 examples of certain groups of people playing god; but this blog isn’t about them.

Way back in 1996, scientist successfully cloned a sheep by using the nucleus from a mammary gland. The sheep was called Dolly. I don’t know about you; but that’s playing god.

I’m all for science research to a point but not when it comes to the point of them playing god.

Just last year, Covid`19 came about from China. There was this theory that the Coronavirus started in the lab involving bats that had gotten away. They were messing with the balance of nature; much to the same way as the scientist who cloned a sheep.

My question is: why doesn’t the news questioned this? Why don’t they and government finds out what really happened by investigating. This is terrorist and whoever is responsible for this should be held accountable for it. They should be brought to trial and sentenced to die as terrorist.

Yet, nothing may not even happen to them because those in the government have business dealing with the Chinese government. They don’t see them as a threat; like they saw Russia as a threat. Russia isn’t a threat anymore like they used to be; because of President Reagan.

With Russia, they wanted to destroy the world; but with China, they want to take over the United States. Some of our government officials are allowing that to happen. Chuck Schumer even said, “we will sell United States to China if the Democrats have total control.”

Those in China behind this Coronavirus are terrorist and what they did was downright meant for a war. They must be prosecuted for it and brought in for justice to be serve.

In these Liberal states, those on the Left shut everything down including churches. It’s bad for the economy and it’s playing god by telling us we can’t go to church.

Then they mandate the wearing of masks, as though we aren’t capable of protecting ourselves. They thinks that we are a bunch of rednecks that needs to be told what to do by them. The government is to overlook the country not control the people; that’s Socialism!

During the Spanish Flu, I highly doubt that the government shut everything down like this pandemic. Back then, people had more common sense than they do now. People were healthier because there wasn’t the poisons that we have today. They ate healthier. There wasn’t poisons in our food, water, air, and ground as there is today.

The mainstream news media, under the disguise of Corporate Media Mafia refused to do their job when it came to investigating reporting involving Joe and Hunter Biden and their illegal business dealings.

Will you parse for truth or just assume facts are friendly?

The Corporate Media Mafia was hiding the truth from the American people about Joe Biden. Whenever someone would post any truths about them on Facebook and Twitter, they would delete it. The reason, they give was: they were fact checkers and it didn’t adds up to what they want or believed. They were playing god by withholding information from the American people. They didn’t care. All they cared was to defeat Pres. Trump. Even if they had to cheat to do so!

Now that the vaccines is discovered, the government wants everyone to be vaccinated. There are people who will do it to. I, myself, will not take the vaccine unless forced to by my job. If I have to, I know what I need to take to dilute the poisons from my system. There are people who won’t take the vaccines because of the uncertainty of it. Biden wondered why Trump hasn’t mandated that everyone take the vaccines. Mr. Joe Biden, that is playing god with our lives. This country was founded on freedom and we have the freedom not to take the vaccines and the freedom of religion.

I’ve heard that the government might let big businesses make people take the vaccines if they wants a job, fly to other countries or states, or go to any kinds of events. This way their hands will be kept clean. Deep down, they know that the American people has a mistrust of the government.

Are you allowing certain people to play god in your life? Is there any idols in your life? Ask God to help to remove them.

You know by allowing the government to force you to take the vaccine is similar to getting the mark of the beast; which is 666. Anyone without the mark of the beast will not be able to purchase or sell.

I could go on with the mark of the beast but that’s a whole different blog.

In the end, when Jesus does return, they will get theirs just dessert. God will cut them down for making idols above God. God will cut them down for playing god with people’s lives.

That was Johnny Cash last song, and one of my favorite on u tube and otherwise.

2020 hasn’t been a good year! It’s a year that we would all love to forget about. I don’t know about you, I wasn’t even in the mood for Christmas this year because of how horrible this year had been; and I’m not talking politically.

This book that I’m holding up asked the question, Where would Jesus worship? The vital question is: What if Jesus came back today? What would He thinks about all that went down this year?

You think that He was angry at those who used His temple as a market; and He threw over tables and yelled, “You have turned my temple into a den of thieves?”

Would He be as forgiving as He was on the cross when He said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they are doing?”

This Pandemic was a warning from God to the world and the church. Have you heed the warning or are you choosing to ignore it?

It’s a long time coming, this warning for United States and the world to shape up. We are becoming like Sodom and Gomorra. Even the church hasn’t done enough to save God’s people from destruction.

They have taken God and the Bible out of our schools. They even have taken prayers out of our schools and other activities, such as graduation.

When they took the Bible and prayers out of our schools, violence became rampant.

They have taken the 10 Commandments out our courts and even the monuments in front of the old City Hall in Fargo, ND and other cities as well.

They want to take out “In God We Trust” off our money. They want to destroy every existence of God and Jesus, His Son.

Our Founding Father would roll over in their grave if they knew how those on the Left wants to take away our religious liberties. This country was founded on religious principles and freedom. Even though religion and politics are supposed to separated. For it said, “Religion and State are to be kept separate.

Jesus wouldn’t be too happy of all hatred in this world right now. He commanded us to love one another; but this past 4 years there has been nothing but hatred at anyone who disagree with those doing the hating on the Left.

There have been more killings lately because of the hatred. I’m not just talking about the innocent unborn babies.

This past year there was riots in many major cities across this country. There was even the group Black Lives Matters were formed to banned against the polices in hoping to defund them. To them, I say, “Not just black lives matter, all lives matter!”

Few weeks ago, I heard a sermon about Jesus being missing and His parents went back to Jerusalem looking for Him. They found Him at the temple sitting at the Priest’s feet listening, learning, and worshipping. Is Jesus missing today?

With the way things are looking in the world and in the church, I would have to say, “Hell Yea!!”

Where would Jesus worship? Is there any churches out there who is standing up for Jesus? Is there any churches out there doing their job at witnessing and leading others to Christ and save the lost souls?

What is so sad is that lost souls around the world are hungering for and running to the true power of the gospel that saves, delivers and heals; and the church in America is running from it.

The world and its way are passing! We see the bondage that people are in, the destruction of the family.

Our Christian values are being slowly destroyed more and more. If we’re not careful, we will be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorra.

Souls must be at the forefront of every church’s values. Especially now more than ever before it’s too late!

Would Jesus worship in a church which struggles with believing the full gospel and makes excuses for not receiving all He has for them?

Let’s face it; the church in America is in trouble!

Would Jesus worship at your church if, in fact, your church is primarily concerned about meeting the carnal needs of it’s members more than their spiritual needs?

Would Jesus worship at a church which believe the end justifies the means?

Would Jesus attend a church which has good worship, good preaching, and even good fellowship; but lack the presence of the Holy Spirit to help them grow spiritually?

Would Jesus worship in a church that has no strong convictions and fell for every new fads that came along?

Would Jesus feel comfortable worshipping in a church where the pastor’s ego is bigger than his love for the Lord? In other words someone who comes across as being self-righteous.

Would Jesus worship in a church that has no fire or spiritual desires? Would He worship in a church that is complacent about the lost?

I remembered years ago, after going to a revival service in one church and then the following weekend going to whole different church and I swear, I didn’t feel the fire and felt the Holy Spirit in that church. It was like coming down hard off the mountain.

Believe me, after this year, America is in desperate need to get back to God. It’s time the church step up to the plate to help America come back to God. It’s time the church works to wins souls for Christ before it’s too late for America and the world.

This year was a warning to America, the world and even the churches. Are we going to heed the warning or ignore it?

I know that we don’t know the exact day and time that Jesus Christ will return. Don’t you think that America should come back to God before Jesus does return though.

This is my prayer for America and for the churches!

How many have heard someone say this either at work or wherever?

How many pastors have heard this in their churches from their members?

It’s almost winter times! Yet so far in North Dakota there isn’t any snow yet. Yet, you know that it will eventually come.

How many of you hated when the dreaded snow plow comes whirling by right after you just shovel or blown the snow from your driveway and sidewalks? I wouldn’t doubt as they are driving by plowing the streets, they are laughing at you as they blow the snow back into your driveway and blocking your sidewalk. Just so you have to do it again. Doesn’t that just pissed you off?

Think about it as you are walking and comes to a snowbanks before crossing the road. Some of those snowbanks are steep and can be slippery. You don’t know where the ice will be as you are climbing up and then down the other side. You could actually slip on ice going down into the road; where you may get hurt or even possibly get hit by an oncoming vehicle, that may have a hard time stopping in time because of the ice.

The snowplow drivers should be ashamed of themselves for blocking off those sidewalks near intersection. As a person gets older, it’s harder on our body when we fall on ice.

I think the snowplow drivers should be dock $50 from their paychecks for every sidewalks and driveways they block off while plowing the streets. Especially, after all the hard work you have done to clear your driveway and sidewalks.

There’s sidewalks in the median between the frontage road and the University Drive in Fargo, ND, that is never cleared off. You actually have to walk on the road before you crossing. Now that is very dangerous, with cars driving by not wanting to share the road or can’t share the road. It’s almost like the city of Fargo is saying, that’s not part of my job to clear that sidewalks; it’s the businesses in front. Who’s job is it to clear that sidewalk anyway? Shouldn’t someone takes responsibility for it?

The last 2 years, no one plowed out the bus shelter in front of the Fargo Dome across from McDonalds on North University. There was a huge snowbanks right there. You either stand on the road to wait for the bus and hope you don’t get hit or stand on top of the snowbank and be careful when stepping down to step into the bus. The city of Fargo and Mat bus services didn’t want to plow that out because they felt that the Fargo Dome should do it being it’s in front. Somebody should had done it. If there was an accident and someone was either injured or killed because of that, who would be liable?

Have you ever went walking in the wintertime while the weather was nice to be out to enjoy? As you are walking, have you ever noticed how some neighbors sidewalks wasn’t plowed off? So you either are walking through deep snow or on the streets; where once again isn’t safe because of icy roads and oncoming vehicles.

It seems that people just take care of their own sidewalks and forget about their neighbors. Or they will only plow so far and leave the rest thinking that’s not my property.

You all heard the jingle for All-State insurance that said, “Like a good neighbor, we’re there for you!” Are we being a good neighbor?

In the Bible, the teacher of the law questioned Jesus with, “Who’s my neighbor?”

Jesus answered with the parable of the Good Samaritan story. It was the good Samaritan who helped the injured stranger on the side of the road and no one else.

Years ago, people were more likely to help their neighbors than they are today. People knew their neighbors and look out for them. If they were elderly, they would take it upon themselves to plow off their sidewalks for them.

Does people really do that anymore for their neighbors; especially in bigger cities? Maybe in smaller town or farm communities.

When I hear stories on the news about a neighbor farmers who is sick and either can’t bring in the harvest or plant the harvest; and the neighbors in the farming community banned together to help that farmer, it touched my heart.

Toward the end of my folks life, it was hard for my step-dad to plow out his driveways; so there was a neighbor who plowed them out. That way they can get their mail or go to town if need to. No questions ask or saying that’s not my job!

Instead of complaining about it’s not your job, shouldn’t you do it anyway? Shouldn’t you be a good neighbor?

Those were the days when neighbors done things for each other with no questions and complaining that’s not my job.

The world will be a better place if more people would do that once again like they did years ago. There would be less hate. If people had more compassion for their neighbors.

I just noticed that it’s snowing now. To you snowplow drivers when you block off people’s driveway and sidewalks, have the decency to unplowed them. This year, someone take responsibility to clear the median between the frontage road and University Drive. Also this year, someone take responsibility in clearing the bus shelter in front of the Fargo Dome; before a big snowbank is form.

Recently, former Senator Mark Andrews recently passed away. He was 94 years old. He was a farmer turned senator from Mapleton, North Dakota.

I first met him back in 1984 while going to NDSU. He was a giant of a man with a big heart. He was already an US Senator at the time. Back then at college, they would have a chance to meet the political candidates from either party, without any backlash you get today on our college campuses. People can disagree politically and not be violently hated for it; not like today.

I mean, back then, I had a college professor, Dr. Thomas Matchie, who was a democrat while I was a young college Republican, a Reagan’s republican at that. We had the utmost respect for each other. He even became my advisor.

You don’t have that kinds of relationship anymore on our college campuses. If you are a Conservative/Republicans, you are physically attack by those on the Left.

Senator Mark Andrews were good friends with Senator Quentin Burdick, who was a democrat. They had respect for each other.

I met both of them along with George Sinner and even Rick Berg as he was starting out in the political field. Rick Berg wasn’t much older than I.

I had my first political campaigning back then and even meeting with other Republican candidates in their homes. I even had for the first time, spinach dip. I was becoming big in the college Republican party back then.

Back in 1986, Sen. Mark Andrews ran for reelection against Kent Conrad. I even met Kent Conrad at that time.

I think what may had hurt Mark Andrews reelection’s bid was the fact that he sued the old St. Luke’s hospital in a malpractice suit on the behalf of his wife, the love of his life. She felt that she didn’t get the proper treatment. He actually won the malpractice.

I can understand the reason for his malpractice suit; but being a Senator at the time, I believe it hurt him big time.

I mean, a political candidate can lie to the American people but do what Mark Andrew did would leave a bad taste in the voter’s mouth.

Believe me, Kent Conrad was a downright liar even back then. He wasn’t a true North Dakotan resident at first when he ran against Andrews. That’s the first time he lied! He lied and I quote, “I will not seek reelection.” But when Sen. Burdick passed away, Kent Conrad ran for Burdick’s Senate seat; as Byron Dorgan ran for Conrad’s seat. That’s dirty politics! Yet, it goes to show that whoever is the biggest liar will eventually win the election.

There’s 2 things that you don’t talk about, They are politics and religions. Yet, it seems people loves political blogs for some reasons. Politics and religions can really damage relationships. No wonder, they say politics is a dirty business to be in. You have to be dirty and a good liar. You also better be careful what’s in your past or your family’s dark secrets. Politics can actually destroy family!

No wonder, former governor Ed Schaffer chose not to run for Senate. He had his filled of it. He would had been a better Senator than John Hoeven; because he was a better governor than Hoeven.

Like I said earlier when I first met Mark Andrew and Rick Berg. Rick Berg was just a few years older than I was and he was down-to-earth at the time. So I had nothing against him when he ran for the North Dakota’s House against Pomeroy. I voted for him then. But I couldn’t vote for him when he ran for Senate against Heidi Heitkamp. The reason was because I felt he should had stayed in the House a little longer than just 2 years. Too me, I felt that the power had gone to his head. I had nothing against him personally.

This is why we need term limits for the Senators and the House of Representatives. It will keep the power from going to their head. That was probably why it was so hard to finally defeat Colin Peterson from Minnesota. He had done some good things but he had been in Washington way too long. He lost touch with reality. He was a farmer who became a career politicians.

Mark Andrews was also a farmer from Mapleton before entering the political fields. If he wasn’t defeated by Kent Conrad, how long would he had been a Senator in Washington for North Dakota? Quentin Burdick was a senator until he died in office. Toward the end of his life, he just became a political figure that was wheeled to political events.

What’s on your bucket list? What would you like to do before you die?

My step-dad was never able to do what was on his bucket list. He wanted to do those things with my mother; since they were married for 40 years. He wanted to take a fishing trip up to Alaska. He even wanted to move to Alaska to help build the Alaska’s pipeline. He also wanted to take a trip to the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. That was his ancestor’s home country.

What’s on my bucket list? I would love to take the famous train ride between Seattle, Washington to Los Angeles. You all heard stories how beautiful it is.

Another trip on my bucket list is a trip to Germany. This is where my ancestors are from both sides of my families, my mother’s and real father’s. Even though they were from the high Germany area; I would love to see the whole country of Germany. I had studied Germans in college to learn how to speak German. (Guten Tag!) These are just 2 of the words I learned.

From what I studied in the German’s course, Germany is a very beautiful country to see. The language and culture differ throughout the country. There is high German and low German. High German is light complexion and low German is dark complexion. My family ancestry is from high German. The Black Forest Mountain is part of the low German. They are suppose to be very beautiful. High German is very similar to the Scandinavian countries when it comes culture and food. Over in Germany, when you order beer, it is much stronger than American beers. It’s also served warm. Plus have a chance to eat authentic German food. The closest I get to that now is going to Wurst Bier Hall downtown Fargo, or Kroll’s Diner.

I have to admired former President George Bush SR., when he turned 80 years old he jumped out of an airplane in a parachute. That was even on my bucket list! I ended up taking it off because I came to realize the way my knees are, it wouldn’t be very smart thing to do.

Since I have a pastor of the church I go to that is from Haiti, I would love to go on another missionary trip and this time to Haiti. All because I heard wonderful stories about Haiti from my pastor. I would also love to do another work & witness; because the last one I was on was life changing. I will talk about that in another blog.

During the holidays, people loves to get together with their family; but because of the Coronavirus, it’s advise not to for health reasons. You don’t want to bring the virus to your elderly parents! Yet, a dying parent wants to spend their last remaining days with their families and loves ones, and they just don’t care.

After my mother had her stroke, she wanted to go back home on the farm to be with her husband. She didn’t want to be in a nursing home. She was more concerned about her husband than her own health.

Just like, before my step-dad passed away, he wanted to returned to the farm to spend his last days.

I guess what I’m getting at, if they were alive during this pandemic, they would want all of us remaining kids together for Christmas. Especially, if they were dying and only had a short time to live. They wouldn’t care about the virus.

What would be your dying wish? Wouldn’t you want to spend your last remaining days with your family, kids and grandkids; despite of the virus?

I don’t know if I would be able to achieve what’s on my bucket list; but it’s always good to wish and hope. It’s good to make the list and if all possible, you may or may not achieve what’s on your bucket list.

There was a movie called Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It was a very good movie. I recommend you to see it. They played best friends who was dying decided to do some of the stuff on their bucket list before they died.

So go ahead, make your bucket list! It’s just a wish list. There’s nothing wrong with wishing and hoping. Who knows, you might achieve what’s on your bucket list. Don’t let death keeps you from achieving what you want to do before you die. Don’t let death keeps you away from your family, even during the holidays and this pandemic.

This has been one of the worse year. This has been a year that many would love to either forget or erase from our memory and history. But we cannot do that, I’m afraid to say.

So this Thanksgiving, let us be thankful for what we do have. Let us not dwell on the negative. We cannot change the past or even this year; as bad as it was.

Instead of sitting at home feeling sorry for yourself because of all that went down this year; count your blessing. Instead of sitting in front of the TV or internet get up and either get outside to get some sun or get your Bible and start reading it from Genesis to Revelation.

The mainstream news media and the Democrats would want you to believe them in what they say; that way they can control you in every way.

It is a proven fact that sunlight is the natural Vitamin D we all need to stay healthy. If you can get out walking to get some sun, it would be more healthier than sitting at home feeling sorry for yourself. More people get sick by sitting home than those who are out getting exercise and some sun. Even the doctors would agree!

If you somehow cannot get outside in the sun for some reasons; then find yourself a Bible to read. Get in touch with God! He’s the great physician!

Turn off the news and Facebook and pick up to read your Bible instead! They will only depress and control you.

Many had died of depression because they chose to feel sorry for themselves.

My folks been married 40 years and when my mother passed away, my step-dad became depressed. He gave up on life. He depended on my mother to take care of him. I’m not saying he wasn’t healthy.

Some who are depress would overeat and get no exercise. They are just too busy feeling sorry for themselves.

A former pastor I had would preached, “Get self off the throne!”

Back in the 90’s, I was feeling sorry for myself. I was full of self-pity. You may be surprised to know that the Lord used the Mormons to knocked on my door. After they came, that night, the Lord woke me up telling me, “Stop feeling sorry for yourself and get up to pray for your pastor!” I pleaded to get up later; but the Lord would not let me sleep until I got up. It goes to show that the Lord won’t give up until we do what He wants us to do.

A former pastor I had most recently had us remembered 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. You can look this up on your own when you are feeling depress, when you are looking for ways to be thankful this holiday season.

I will be taking it out of the NIV version of the Bible.

In verse 16, Be joyful always! Some version will say, rejoice in all things. That is the key to this blog on being thankful this holiday season; not just but all year long. Another pastor would say, “Smile!” When others see you smiling and rejoicing instead of feeling sorry for yourself. You can tell them the reasons for your joy. It may leads them to the Lord.

In verse 17, “Pray continually!” This verse is also very important to get us through dark days in our lives. It will remove the dark shadows as we walk through the valley of death.

As FDR said, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”

We can either let fear control us by living in self-pity because of this pandemic or we can rise up and stands against it.

Now in verse 18, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” We can give thanks even during this pandemic. We can be thankful even when we can’t be with our loved ones. We can be thankful even in the midst of trials. We can count our blessings and be thankful at all times.

The time is now to get back to God and to be thankful for what we do have. We need to get self off the throne and put God back where he belongs. As the Lord told me, I’m telling you, stop feeling sorry for yourself! When the news and Facebook is depressing you turn it off, get some sun and read your Bible. Go ahead read these verses that I mentioned in this blog. It may uplift you to get you to be more thankful.

If this speaks to you finds yourself a good Bible preaching church and find someone to pray with you to accept the Lord into your life. If this touch you in some way, I would like to hear from you. So please push the like button and comment if you want.

What goes up must come down!

There had been countries that risen and fallen in power throughout history. Some may even surprise you.

This book that I am holding is a prophecy book; but I will look at this more politically and historically instead.

Even though the Roman empire was mentioned in the Bible during the time of Jesus and the Apostle Paul; it was actually the Greek empire that came before the Roman empire.

Alexander the Great changed the course of history. He was one of the greatest military generals. His empire stretched from Macedonia to Egypt and from Greece to part of India. He was also from Greece.

The Viking era is a period from the Germanic Iron age. From around 793 to 1066, Norsemen used rivers and oceans to explore Europe for trading, raiding and conquest.

The Vikings were from the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland.

Actually, it was Leif Erikson, a Viking who was the first to discovered America.

They were like the pirates in their days when it came in conquering other countries, such as England. You are all familiar with Hagar the Horrible(no relation, even though I was kidded about it).

A little sidebar, if they are looking at changing names for sports teams that is offensive, maybe the Scandinavians should ordered the Minnesota Vikings to change their names. It doesn’t fit who the Vikings really are.

The Spanish and English empire was in power about the same time after the Vikings.

The Spanish controlled the oceans with pirates.

England was in power up to the Revolution war here in the states; while we were just 13th colonies.

Napoleon was in power in France around 1804, shortly after the French revolution.

During Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror in the 1930’s, Germany became a powerful empire under Hitler. Hitler also brought Socialism for Germany during that time. He was the biggest threat during World War 2. We all know what happened to his reign of terror, once the United States and Russia got involved.

It goes to show that Socialism will never last. Many talked about it. It gets people interested but as President Trump said, “United States will never have Socialism as their motto even when they talked about it constantly. It will wear itself out eventually.

It did in Germany under Hitler.

The Russian empire became the biggest threat to the United States shortly after World War 2 and up the 1980’s under President Reagan. Some say that Reagan was responsible for the downfall of the Russian empire.

President Reagan told Russia, “The wall must come down!” He was referring to the Berlin Wall.

Even President John F. Kennedy battled Russia during the Cuban crisis. Some may even say that the Russians may had been behind Assassination of Kennedy.

He may had been part of downfall of Russia; but also when Russia attack Afghanistan, I believe that was their downfall. They were there too long and it broke them. Much to the same way it nearly broke the United States under President George W. Bush.

When Russia was a threat to the United States during the 1980’s, now the threat to the United States is China. China is fast becoming a very powerful empire as we speak.

They were all for Reagan to stop the Russian empire; but for some reasons they are not in such a big hurry to stop China empire. Why is that?

President Trump saw right through the treaty with the Chinese and refused to negotiate because he saw it being only one-sided in favor of the Chinese. It was very smart of him; yet the Democrats criticized him for it. It’s almost like they want the Chinese government to take over the United States.

Who knows this Coronavirus may had been the Chinese government enactment of revenge against the United States and President Trump? This virus started there but it couldn’t stayed there even when Trump ordered no traveling to and from China early in the year.

As you can see no countries remained in power forever. United States had been in power probably the longest. Will China succeed in taking down the United States to become the most powerful nation? It seems that the Democrats want that to happen.

The church calls this movement the new tolerance. They say that this cultural movement threatens to destroy you, your faith, and your children.

Some of it may but some will only be better.

In the early 1900’s anyone with a mental illness were locked up in mental institution. They were also given a lobotomy to prevent having kids like them.

Even way back during the Salem Witchcraft trials, the religious leaders back then would accused anyone with mental illness as being witches. They even done that during the time that Jesus walked the earth. They accused Jesus of being possessed by the devil when he went about doing all those healings.

If parents had a child with disability they were advised to lock them away in a mental institution. Even when it came to adopting children with mental or physical disability, the church and adoption agency wouldn’t really allow it.

Now days, the mental institution is now close. People with disability are becoming a part of society. Some lives in group homes and some on their own.

This is only one of many things that changed in society and is becoming accepted as a new tolerance.

When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was pregnant before she wed Joseph, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph was about to not marry her and to protect her by doing his best to keep it a secret. The reason: The religious leaders back then would had stone Mary for being an unwed mother.

For a long time in this country, being a single mother was sinful. Having a child out-of-wedlock was a sin according to the church and religious leaders. In the early 1900’s, any woman becoming pregnant was told to give the baby up or put them away in an orphanage.

In the 50’s due to the birth of Rock and Roll, Christian values came under attack. When Elvis was shown on TV, they only shown his top half to avoid seeing him shake his pelvis area.

To them dancing like that or with someone that you were not married to was a sin. Many churches felt that way.

During the 60’s and sexual revolution, single women was becoming pregnant. I’m a child of the 60’s and born to a single mother. I’m not saying she wasn’t with my real father; they just never married. Even though my mother was Feminist and a single mother; she was also raised Catholic. Because of her upbringing in the Catholic church, she felt that I should be baptized. The Catholic belief was, since I was born out-of-wedlock, I was a sinner and destine for hell.

As the years gone by, there are more and more single mothers out there; not only because of divorce or death of a spouse but because of having children out-of-wedlock.

How many of your classmates had gotten pregnant in high school?

There was 3 in my class. One was a Freshman and she had her son on her own. The other 2 were Seniors. They did married the father.

Back to my mother, there was times, she would worked 2-3 jobs just to keep me. My grandmother helped raised me. My mother never went on welfare. I admire woman like that than those who goes on welfare; and have kids just to keep getting money from the government. It’s not easy being a single mother but it also takes courage when it comes to these religious leaders.

My mother was a true feminist. She would bring home the bacon and fry it too.

Isn’t this what Christianity really about, loving and accepting people the way they are?

To tolerate is to recognize and respect other’s beliefs? But yet, these so-called religious leaders are quick to judge and not accept.

Romans 8:1, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Yet, look how quickly the church and these self-righteous leaders are to condemn others; without looking at the speck in their own eyes.

It is not enough for you to assert another person’s right to believe or say what he thinks is right.

It’s not enough to accept people for who they are in society, despite of their lifestyles; such as homosexuality.

Do you know why it seems so hard to pass such values onto the next generation these days?

The new tolerance is increasingly displaces all other virtues in our schools, government, society and churches.

We are all equals; but some are not treated as equal.

Nonagreement is phobia!

Nonconformity is hate!

How does Christian love act in a culture dominated by the new tolerance?

There’s so much information from this book I’m holding in the picture at the top of this blog.

Jesus wanted us to love everyone and to be tolerant of their shortcomings. We are not to be like the hypocrite and self-righteous religious leaders who are quick to judge others. Love wins in the end!

As a country, we have came a long way in accepting others; but we still have a long way to go. There are certain groups that still have to fight for acceptance by the Christian church.

I’m not saying that we have to accept their behaviors. We just have to accept them and tolerate them as we live here on earth. Love them anyway!!

Now this could be broad subject; especially for those who have trust issues. I will try narrow it down to what happened this past week involving the election. But first let get this over with!

Those who have trust issues will find it very hard to trust their mate.

Ever since Jesus walked the earth, tax collectors were the least trusted and the most hated. Jesus was criticized for going to the tax collector house.

We definitely cannot trust our government. We can’t trust these career politicians. They makes promises and talked from both side of their mouth. They are only in office for themselves. They like the power that comes from being in office and the payout from Lobbyist.

As Dr. Ben Carson said, “According the Constitution, they are not to make a career out of being in Washington.” They are to serve their terms and go back home to live with what they did.

When we finally get a non-career politician as President, like Trump, the Democrats and fake news media made his life a living hell. They attacked him every chance they got.

We cannot even trust the voting process anymore. We have people who cheated in this election. I’m talking about Joe Biden. He didn’t get elected fairly. There was voters fraud that helped him to get elected.

The mainstream news media doesn’t even talk about it. They just denied it and poke fun of Pres. Trump like they have done during his presidency. Only Fox news tells you the truth.

The mainstream news media is run by Corporate Media Mafia; which also runs the Democratic party as well. They are responsible in cheating this year election and voters fraud. Big money and big tech are behind Corporate Media Mafia.

People behind Facebook and Twitter are also behind them as well. Both Twitter and Facebook would goes after Trump and his supporters by trying shut them down and up. If they knew about this blog, they try to shut me down as well.

The weirdest thing is: Corporate Media Mafia reminds me of Big Brother in the book, “1984”, by George Orwell. It’s so similar and that’s very scary.

This is also what Hitler tried to do when he was in power in Germany during World War 2. He was big on Socialism. Today’s Democrats wants Socialism for this country as well.

We cannot trust the mainstream news media anymore. They don’t have the integrity they once had under Walter Cronkite. They are not true journalist. Believe me, I know true journalism; because I have took college classes in journalism, in possibility of becoming a journalist.

During this whole election, the Corporate Media never investigated the allegation into Biden.

First, they never questioned Biden about his and Hunter involvement in Ukraine. When women came forward accusing Biden of sexual harassment, they made it sound like they were lying about being sexually harass. Then how about Hunter and Joe corrupt business deals in China? Only Fox news talked about it. They just covered it up like everything else involving Biden and even Hillary Clinton.

They never even questioned Biden about his mental health. I wouldn’t doubt that he has dementia.

When the people in Nevada admitted that there was possibly voters fraud, the mainstream media denied it. They even poked fun of Pres. Trump when he said that he possibly lost because of voter fraud, and will take it to the Supreme Court to prove it.

When Al Gore lost the election in 2000, he demanded a recount in only certain area of Florida.

When Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, the Democrats hollered Russian collusion.

Now when Trump is claiming voters fraud, they ridicule him. They are just not being fair.

I could go on, but I think you can figure out where I’m coming from.

We cannot trust the Corporate Media, our government; especially the Democrats. They will cheat if they have to just to win. We cannot trust Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Joe Biden isn’t my president. He will sell this country to China. He will raise our taxes. We will be back where we were before Trump was president. If you have any investments, Biden will hurt that also.

He had been in Washington for 47 years and done nothing the whole time. I cannot trust Joe Biden anymore than Bill Clinton and even Hillary.

I think that all of Trump’s supporters should make Biden’s life a living hell like the Democrats and the Corporate Media made Trump’s life hell. Believe me, whenever the opportunity comes up for my blogs, that is what I will do.
