More Temple Mount Damage

Damage on Temple Mount Could Bring Deadly Results

Rerun No More

Remember Rerun on What's Happening? He died Tuesday (10/21) at age 52. I didn't know he was that old, not that I ever thought about it before.

The Star-Spangled Banner

The Pledge of Allegiance has been under fire because of the words "under God." We have "In God We Trust" on our money. Our founding Fathers mention God over and over. I recently learned that God is also mentioned in our National Anthem. Take a look, read through the second part, the part nobody sings.

The United States is such a different country now than when it was founded. People today are embarrassed to mention God, if they believe in Him at all. In fact, it is considered the "educated" view that God doesn't exist, if you believe in a "man in the sky" you are equated with people who believe the Earth is flat. The U.S. has moved far away from God. The constitution is being undermined and becoming irrelevant, slowly but surely. Our judges look to the opinions of foreign nations to decide cases. We are a different people in so many ways. We are morally and spiritually weaker. Our foundation is cracking. We are giving our freedom away. Even those who still believe in God don't do what He says, don't really want to know. They change His Word to fit their lifestyle, creating an image of god that fits them, that makes them feel good. The following verses are so relevant today, it's like God speaking to the United States of America.

Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet, And note it on a scroll, That it may be for time to come, Forever and ever: 9 That this is a rebellious people, Lying children, Children who will not hear the law of the Lord; 10 Who say to the seers, "Do not see," And to the prophets, "Do not prophesy to us right things; Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. 11 Get out of the way, Turn aside from the path, Cause the Holy One of Israel To cease from before us." 12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel: "Because you despise this word, And trust in oppression and perversity, And rely on them, 13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you Like a breach ready to fall, A bulge in a high wall, Whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant. 14 And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter's vessel, Which is broken in pieces; He shall not spare. So there shall not be found among its fragments A shard to take fire from the hearth, Or to take water from the cistern." 15 For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." But you would not, 16 And you said, "No, for we will flee on horses"-- Therefore you shall flee! And, "We will ride on swift horses"-- Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift! 17 One thousand shall flee at the threat of one, At the threat of five you shall flee, Till you are left as a pole on top of a mountain And as a banner on a hill.

It's coming true right before your eyes.
