The final Sunday paper of the year - Dec. 30 - was full of "bad news" subjects that reveal the especially grave status of this nation, America, a blessed nation, "One Nation under God," whose gifted and enlightened forefathers synthesized the nations guides and goals as "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
The news reveals the serious and immediate needs of assistance and correct changes! Prevalent evils reigning today surpass that of Sodom and Gomorrah, which was wiped out by fire! When Lot's wife was told not to look back, she did. She was turned into a pillar of salt.
America's destruction is because the taking of innocent life (abortion), a great evil in God's eyes, which has been escalating for 40 years. How can a child pursue liberty or happiness if it is killed before or after birth, when it is revealed that a child, still in its mother's womb, "leaped for joy" when visited by Mary who was pregnant with the Christ Child?
God's Commandments prohibit the taking of life, especially innocent life! There is a scriptural quote that states: "If man sheds his neighbor's blood, let his blood be shed!" "Thou shalt not kill" is one of the Commandments.
The startling headline nationwide news of the massive school shooting of children leads to a double powerful life-saving solution, which is put prayer back in schools! Prayer is a free power source and tool for divine human blessing. "Ask and you shall receive! Seek and you shall find! Knock, and it shall be opened to you!" Whatever you ask for and believe you shall receive!
The pro-death mentality prevents children from ever attending school.
It is time to go pro-life, pro-American, pro-founding fathers, pro-One Nation under God, pro-In God We Trust, Pro-life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, especially for politicians and court decisions! Put prayer back in schools because prayer comes first!
This will get worse, because this is the brief Anti-Christ Era we've entered. But, Christ is returning soon, in glory! Evil will be wiped out! Then, there will be "The Reign of the Divine Kingdom - On Earth as it is in Heaven - Because the 2000 year Prayer of Our Father will have been answered! Humanity will enjoy a new heaven and a new earth, for paradise will have returned! With happiness, holiness, and health of soul, mind, and body!
Happy New Year!
