The scripture for today is Luke 19:41-44, NIV.
" As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it and said, 'If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace----but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you." NIV
I feel that this is so prophetic. I have to say that I am ashamed to be an American after what happened in Washington the other day. I never thought I would say that. My father was a West Point graduate and all of my uncles fought in WW II. I love this country and what it used to stand for. Now I am not so sure. We gradually have destroyed this nation by not being good Christians and speaking out about the changes in society that were NOT Christian. Now we are reaping the consequences.
I was studying Daniel the other day, Chapter 10. I believe that Christ is on His way back, and soon. Read your prophetic scriptures. They speak of wars, destruction, anarchy, etc. They are all in the news.
Personally, I am excited and happy. We are on our way to Heaven, what could be better than that. You may think these are the rantings of an old lady, maybe so. I know a lot of other Christians that feel the same way.
We need to study the scriptures, learn to love each other as family, which we are. We need to realize we are ALL God's children. We need to love more and not hate. We WILL be held responsible by our Father.
Lord, help us to love more and hate much less. We are all your children. You love us all the same. Help us save this country from self-destruction. Amen
