Winged lion & USA

On this day that we celebrate America with thanksgiving. As a gift from God beyond the earthly adventurers, who have shelved America as a gift from God; having commercialized the day.

Here is the non-commercialized version of America. Recalling the lion with wings like an eagle. With the wings being plucked of, as the eagle gained its independence from Great Britain. With this eagle given the feet of a man and made to stand up. And, given the heart of a man, Daniel 7:4. Whom the nation tagged as Uncle Sam, charitable at home and abroad. Even unto death was this great bald eagle, as she boldly liberated the world from the abyss so often. For the sake of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Be grateful that you have not forgotten, “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you,” 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

America has many foreign gods today which are worshiped by far to many people. Two of them are commercialism and consumerism. And they are converting the nation from a place prosperity, power with national and global influence. To a nation of nothingness, as far as prosperity, power with national and global influence.

And that is why the ten horned beast of Daniel 7:7, and, Revelation 17:12-18 is going to trample America and give her a brutal god to worship. And this god, will also be a triune deity. And a third of her is here today in her infancy. And when grown up, she’ll be known as Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. Curious? Read about her in Revelation seventeen.

Let not any of this spoil your festivities, if you are secure through the saving grace of Jesus. Though times will be hard to endure, know this from Daniel and John. “I beheld then because of the great voice of the great words which the horn spake. I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame,” Daniel 7:11. In due time after giving the world what it wanted, Rev. 17:17, a kingdom without God in it. Then, “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets; for God has avenged you on her!” Revelation 18:20.

Focus on what’s important, “Despise not prophecies. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from every form of evil,” 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21.

Father’s Day It’s a Family Affair

“The foundations of national morality must be laid in private families. How is it possible that children can have any Sense of sacred Obligations of Morality or Religion, if from their earliest infancy they learn their Mothers live in habitual infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in constant infidelity to their mothers?” John Adams, diary, 02 June 1778.

Not much has changed in 235 years of parenthood. Except maybe it’s more common and out in the open. With greater family and public acceptability. America is becoming a society of defiant decadent people. Displaying little shame for such behaviors. While giving children little reason to celebrate Dad’s gone bad.

But a tale can be told many ways, as is the case with the following. “Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, BUT ESTABLISH THE JUST; for the righteous. God tests the minds and the hearts. My defense is with God, who saves the upright in heart. God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day,” Psalms 7:9-11. With infidelity being a great wickedness upon the participants and their families which makes God very angry.

But to the many faithful Dad’s and Mom’s, for the sake of their children, this truly is Dad’s day. Making it a festive family affair. Giving children a festive desire to honor their Dad’s this day.

Fidelity doesn’t happen by chance but from discipline. Because these Dad’s defense is with God, as a shield from such infidelities. These Dad’s endured the test of the mind and heart. And God has saved these Dad’s, pure in heart, from such destructive infidelities. And thus, helping to bring the Psalmist his desired plea, “Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked end, BUT ESTABLISH THE JUST; for the righteous,” And, thus these Dad’s are! So son’s and daughter’s, mother’s too, celebrate a truly special Dad, who in God’s sight is righteous.

The LORD bless you Dad’s and keep you. The LORD make his face shine upon such Dad’s and be gracious to you. The LORD lift up his countenance upon such Dad’s and give you peace, Amen.

Making this Father’s Day truly a family affair.
