The Tip of a Firestorm

"Have people gone mad in this country?"
Alan Keyes

It's not patriotic to remain willfully ignorant of what is happening in one's nation or to determine one will blindly follow a particular political party's platform and guidance.  I've seen courageous, patriotic attempts to inform, to make the truth available — in spite of the arrogant mocking, name-calling, derision, and villifying of the messengers.

Personally, I'm not overly concerned about patriotism, except for being heavily vexed by people who hurl accusations of being unpatriotic at those who care enough about this country to research and learn the facts, which are readily available.  I cannot, and do not desire to, separate a Biblical worldview from any facet of my life, including politics.  It would be disingenuous of me to attempt to convince myself or anyone else that I am so far removed from happenings in the world that I care not what is the destiny of the USA, the country in which I was blessed to be born and to live.

Christians understand we are witnessing what appears to be a fast track to one world government to be ruled by one man.  That is worthy of attention: when the USA becomes unrecognizable, so, also, will be greatly diminished the ability to fulfill the commission given us in the kingdom of our eternal citizenship.

Five times Jesus told us, referring to end times events, to watch.  He told us what would be occurring on the earth, and He told us to watch, "...and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." [Luke 21:36]

You needn't necessarily care about what's happening in the USA.
If you care, the film "End Game" can be viewed at YouTube or Google Video.

This You Must Know

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.  ~Luke 21:28

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  ~Romans 8:38, 39

Thank you so much for this video clip. My family and I watched it and it was very, very good. I'm glad to see someone posting something besides fluff. I was visiting some blogs today and it seemed that no one who has blogged about anything "less than positive" has had any feedback.
I know with all this stuff going on in our country it is scary, but I know it's crucial to remember that this is not our forever home.
