A Departure From The Senate?

Is the South Carolina Senator Sick?

One of the most lasting lessons the events of the past one year will teach all is that there is no substitute for truth. And God is ready to feed us all a meal of truth, no matter who stands or falls by it. And irrespective of whether the individuals or nations involved have nuclear armament or not. 
 God has determined that only Truth will move the world forward no matter the plans of men. TRUTH--JUST TRUTH--WILL MOVE THE WORLD FORWARD!

Why Is This Relevant to the Subject Matter?
Often, when people die, in particular people in positions of power, all of a sudden they become "very good" people. The grave side speeches are filled with accolades both deserved and undeserved. There seems to be an unwritten rule that when a person dies, we must speak well of them, at least in public utterances, as if not to offend the dead. Well, that culture is about to change. Anybody, whether in their casket or on their dying bed will be described just the way they are, or used to be--telling only the truth about the life they have lived--taking the good with the ugly.

So Here Is The Question
If the South Carolina Senator were to leave this world today, what would he like to be remembered for? For truths, half  truths, truth when it is convenient, or hardly any truth at all? Truth is, the time has come and the time is now when people who serve in high government offices, even in the private sector, will have their caskets cut out for them of the material they were best known for--integrity, honor, empathy, goodwill, lies, falsehood, fraud, deception, immorality etc. No need to tell other people how you want to be buried or how many eulogies you want at your graveside, God will be available to help bring a eulogy fitting the type of life you have lived. About that there's no question.

Vladimir Putin Needs A Bible

 The Russian Leader Needs A Bible                                                                

"Fear of  the Lord is 
 the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment." 
(NLT) Proverbs 9:10

"... for by strength shall no man prevail."  (KJV) 1 Sam 2:9

Every leader who aspires to lead on the world stage needs wisdom beyond "What I want."

Is Putin Targeting Mar-a-Lago?

It is strange that of all U.S. cities it is a place looking like Miami, Florida, that Vladimir Putin's nukes were set to attack. Do friends attack friends? Is there a veiled message for Donald Trump? What is he threatening Trump for? Does Mr. Trump know that he is being threatened by Putin's nuclear armaments? Mr. Trump may not know why, or does he?
 But God knows every reason why he may be facing reprisal from Russia and it's leaders.

If Donald Trump owes Russia and it's leaders, why not address him directly, why not tell him to pay up. This would be the more manly thing to do rather than a veiled threat that appears to include people who owe nothing to Russia. But when innocent people are being threatened, there is a way out. And this way out is being provided by God.

If Putin Has constituted himself into a Goliath, then let him know that God has appointed a David. And here's the word of God concerning such ill advised path that Putin may want to follow.

"Therefore thus says the Lord;
'He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow here,
Nor come before it with a shield, nor build a siege mount around it.
By the way that he came, by the same way he shall return;
And he shall not come into this city,'
Says the Lord. 
'For I will defend this city, to save it for My own sake.'" --Isaiah 37:33-35

Why is no one asking why the United States is hearing from Putin so often? Is he now the vice-president of the United States? But the real question is what makes him so bold? If the United States can find the answer to this, that is if the men are bold enough to ask this question instead of attempting to cover up the Russian probe, then they would have found a solution to the problem.

Threatening The World With Nukes? --Irresponsible!

Exactly one week ago today, the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, displayed his "Invisible" nuclear weapons to the world in what was hardly a veiled threat. The truth is Vladimir Putin knows very well the United States is not going to attack Russia. Even if his move is only just to warn the United States, it is still irresponsible to parade his weapons of mass destruction before a world that is trying to forge peace.

One would have thought that in a "civilized" world of the 21st century, the type the west would like to boast about, that those who lead their nations would understand the principles of respect and civility and actually apply such in dealing with others, be it their own people or other nations.

The Days of the Pagan Empires Are Over
During the days of the pagan empires, one man who thought he had a big chest could get up and challenge anybody to a fight unprovoked, because it was all about raw strength. Today, it is about "My nukes can reach the United States" or "I have the biggest and fattest nuclear button". Is the world being ruled by insecure men, and how long will they remain?

The world we live in is not the property of any party. Whether you believe it or not, it belongs to God  and His WILL will prevail. To threaten your neighbors with destruction is pagan and the leaders on the world stage today who are daily threatening the peace so that they can be seen as tough need a copy of the Bible. I will gladly supply each of them a copy.

A Leader In Hiding?

Does anyone know where the leader is hiding who was supposed to be at the forefront of a cause? Can a leader successfully hide from view who has been mandated to lead a cause?
 Gideon was in hiding (Judges 6) when the angel of the Lord declared to him;
"The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." The Lord appeared to Gideon and called him a man of great valor. This was a move to prepare Gideon for the battle ahead. Gideon did not see in himself what was being ascribed to him, which is a natural way to react to such situations.

But God's business must be done, and there comes a time when God will not take no for an answer, even while gently coaxing the messenger to accept the mission. Every such messenger needs the message and the location where it should be happening. Gideon had both--the children of Israel had to be freed from oppression, because God was concerned, even as He is today with things going on in our world. Those whom God has delegated to bring the message of freedom to others must rise up and conduct themselves according to the vision and wisdom. The rest is God's to take care of. God promises one thing--to Gideon, to Joshua (Joshua 1:5-6), and to whoever else He calls for such a move, "I will be with you." -- to prosper the cause!

So, come out leader! God is about to do some great things.
Come out and take your place, for the Lord God has made it known that He will  make His Cause great and prosperous. Come Out! And Lead!
