This is a picture of the sun setting below the horizon on Lake Michigan as viewed from the sandy shore last week. I was blessed to be able to capture pictures as the sun lowered and each picture seemed to come faster and faster.
God has created such a beautiful world for us and yet we don’t appreciate how blessed we are.
Many people deny the existence of God. I wonder if this is because they are afraid of what their future holds if God exists. Maybe they should be thinking, what if He does?
Our world is crazy right now. This is Satan’s realm and He is seeking to destroy all Christians and Jews. Look at the Middle East right now. There is a battle being waged and nations are banding together to take control of Syria. Greedy eyes are on Israel and Satan is making strides in removing Israel’s allies.
The United States government is putting on a blindfold to what is happening and it is deliberate. Yet the people who make up the country are not in alignment with the leaders who are pulling the puppet strings. It is time that we Christians and Jews stand up and shout. Our country has always stood for religious freedom, yet we have allowed atheists to take God and prayer out of our schools.
And what about our flag? Our beautiful flag which should make us proud is being forcefully removed from homes and private places. We are being denied our rights as citizens of this country.
We have taken “political correctness” to a level far beyond what it should be if we want to remain the land of the brave and the free. We don’t want to offend others who have migrated to this country by saying Merry Christmas, so our most holy holiday has become just that…a commercial holiday where we say Season’s Greetings or Happy Holidays.
If we were to move to another country, would that country bend over backwards to make sure they didn’t offend us and thus change their culture to fit ours? I don’t think so. While I believe in allowing others to come to America to seek a better life, I don’t believe they should be trying to change our culture. If they truly come here to escape persecution, then they should be happy to live in our country as it was established so long ago.
What a shame. It is time more Christians stopped being afraid. Satan is dancing in our streets, shooting our children in schools, plotting genocide against us, and we do nothing. Our elected leaders are making decisions which are destroying this country. We are looked down upon and ridiculed. Our leaders fight each other, each seeking to have the most power. Laws are being made which are deceiving Christians into believing they should accept what is clearly against God’s law. Don’t you know Satan is joyfully clapping his hands at what is happening?
It is time to pull our heads out of the sand and stand tall. We need to pray and pray hard. Pray for peace in the Middle East. Pray for our land. Pray for our leaders.
Just like in the old hymn, we need to “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus” before the final sunset.
A Proud American Christian,
