31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. (Luke 6:31-36 KJV)
Just like millions of other United States Of America citizens I love my country, I served in the military for my country. I hope well for my country as well as for millions of other people. Luke say that we should do to others as we would like others do to us. According to the situation that our country find itself in, that is a hard pill to swallow. How can we love an administration that does everything that is not love to others? Love is reciprocal, or so I thought. It is very hard to love the enemy in order to receive the great reward.
With the USA going through many unpleasant things, it is very hard to adhere to the word of God. It is like that potato chip commercial ‘I bet you can’t eat just one’. When things happen, people mostly react automatically. You can’t eat just one, you automatically go for more. I have tried to tune out the false rhetoric that our government is trying to force down my throat. I try not to have bad thoughts about them but I can not drown out the lying. I have written a few times that, according to the Bible, they will see and feel the bowels of hell, I do not want to be with them.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. (Romans 8:20-25 KJV)
What I am asked to do, what we all are asked to do, is to have patience along with hope. The false prophet, wrapped in deep deceiving corruption, will have to answer for all the sins incurred. Like the devil he is very deceitful, a liar, shameful and narcissistic. Woe unto those that believe him, follow him, praise him. There is hope but hope only come through staying firm in remaining good and having patience, a lot of patience. He is vane, among many other things, and does not show any sign of wanting to change even for the good of the nation.
18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. 19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. 20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost. (Job:18-20 KJV)
All I am saying is have hope and pray for the best. Job had hope, loved God and had plenty patience. We have to do the same, leave it to the Lord. I truly believe God will not fail us nor desert us in our time of need. Have faith, patience and hope. So it was in the beginning, so it is today. Hope.
