I was recently watching a yachting video where the young man went to look at the damage caused by Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys. Of course, being a cruiser, he was most interested in the boats which had been driven to shore, grounded, and damaged or completely destroyed by the dozens, commenting about how sad it was.
I thought about why God had permitted or caused this and other damage from such storms as hurricanes and tornados to happen and realized it was because we have been turned against God by the lefties and are putting our faith in false pagan gods to care for us, you know, our homes (on land or floating in the water), businesses, bank accounts, our wealth, our own abilities, and such. We no longer worship the one true God, Yahweh/Jesus, but worship and put our faith in these other false gods, depending on them for our futures. "Why, they will take care of us."
God said that He is the only God and that we will have NO OTHER gods before Him. That means we will put our faith, hope, and trust in Him and only Him and He will destroy any other gods we put before Him. KNOW that we will lose anything and anyone that we put between us and Him.
The way it works is we turn our backs on God and put our faith in other false gods so God turns His back on us and lets Satan have us, with Satan being the great destroyer.
A great example is the first great king to rule the entire known world, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. He started worshiping that false pagan god, Myself, built a huge golden idol of Myself, and required everyone else to worship the idol of Myself.
God brought that false pagan god down when He caused old Nebby to become so stupid that Nebby spent 7 years eating grass in the fields with the cattle before giving Nebby his health back and returning Nebby to his throne.
But, hey, don't worry, we stupid humans have been worshiping the false pagan god, Myself, for 6,000 years and are still worshiping it today, in spite of the fact the false pagan god, Myself, has failed us every time. That is why I am where I am today.
I started the bicycle road racing program, The Los Angeles Racing Team (LART), from scratch and quickly built it up to being one of, if not, the best overall road racing program in the US and the world.
Hey, I must have been purdy good, right?
After all, other people, you know, my competition, told me I was and the results proved it. Other people, you know, my competition, told me I was one of the 3 best men's coaches in the US and a European agent told me I was one of the 10 best in the world, other people, you know, my competition, told me I was the best women's coach in the US and one of the best in the world, other people, you know, my competition, told me I was the best junior or youth coach in the US and one of the best in the world, other people, you know, my competition, told me I was one of the best masters coaches in the US and one of the best in the world, and I was beating some of the best riders and teams in the world including defending world champions so it gots to be true, right? And, hey, it also sounded really great so it gots to be true, right?
So I began worshiping and putting my faith in the great, marvelous, wonderful god, Myself. I even clearly remember thinking one day, "Why do I need God, I can do this myself. I don't need God." Hey, I was my own wonderful, magnificent, glorious god, baby.
Boy, was that a mistake or what?
Looking back, with what I have learned since, I can just hear God saying, "Really? Let's see." Oops!!! God knows how to cure the disease of pride and arrogance.
And you know, God didn't have to use some great, powerful, brute beast like a grizzly bear, African lion, great white shark, or 18 foot crocodile to bring down my false pagan god, Myself. All He had to use was a tiny, itty-bitty, microscopic virus, a protist that doesn't even weight one one hundredth of an ounce and it brought the god, Myself, hurtling back to Earth in a fiery, thundering crash and making one huge crater in my life that I am still trying to dig my way out of.
I had put my faith in my very healthy body and very intelligent, well educated, experienced, and proven mind so God took that away from me, you know, just like He did old Nebby. My health got so bad that all I could do was sleep 15 to 20 hours a day, fix one of two TV dinners for food, and sit in a chair staring at 4 walls the rest of the day for more than 1.5 years. It would take me 3 days to rest up enough to just go to the store to buy food and 3 days to rest up enough to recover from going to the store to buy food. I would spend all week either resting up for, resting up from, or going to the store to buy food and my false pagan god, Myself, couldn't save my butt one bit.
When they finally started running tests on me, the doctors said, "You should have died at least 2.5 to 3 years ago," and that was more than 10 years ago. My illness PLUNGED me into poverty, depending completely on God to make sure I have enough left from my $695/mo to pay all of my bills and buy food. He always gives me just enough just in time so that I was forced to quit believing in my incompetent false pagan god, Myself, and learn true faith in God. It is purely by the grace of God that I am still alive.
Be very careful who or what you put your faith in and worship because, if it isn't Yahweh/Jesus, you will lose it.
Then, today, we have the false pagan god, The Republic of the USA and its Constitution, which millions have put their faith in to protect or save them instead of God protecting and saving them. There are many examples of this, the most recent of which is Hong Kong, where the people are putting their faith in the Republic of the USA to protect and save them from evil Communist China instead of putting their faith in Yahweh/Jesus.
There is a huge global list of nations and people who have put their faith and trust in the Republic of the USA, some even while stupidly working to destroy their own false pagan god. These include but are not limited to the entire European Union, which is trying to destroy the Republic of the USA (believe me yet they have been inbreeding too long and are the stupidest people on the planet?), Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, many others and, now, Hong Kong. This isn't good, people.
Trump sees this and is working to get people to not trust in just the US to save their butts and protect them from other evil people so the EU is now taking steps to increase its ability to protect itself with some, like Germany, actually making buds with Russia. Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, India, and others are putting together an international coalition to work together to protect themselves from China and North Korea because they cannot depend on the false pagan god, the Republic of the US, protecting them. India is making buds with Russia to protect herself from China, the Sunni Muslim nations in the Arabian Peninsula are trying to make buds with Iran instead of depending on the US to protect them, especially after Obama stabbed them in the back for Iran, and others. The US conservatives had put their faith in their Constitution and Republic to protect and care for them but, fortunately, many have turned back to God for their protection so God is now giving us a second chance that we better not blow. Unfortunately, many are still putting their faith in the Republic and Constitution instead of in God, which is not a good thing to do.
Know this, since Obama was president, this nation has been and will be for at least the next 20 to 30 years from now just ONE election from being taken over by the evil God hating lefty commie/Muslim traitors, who will now quickly destroy the US Republic just as soon as they regain power. All it will take is the conservative voters becoming complacent again and not voting or a violent coup and the false pagan god, the Republic of the US, will be destroyed and replaced with a commie/Muslim dictatorship. If the commies/Muslims regain power for just a few years any time in the next 20 to 30 years, they will quickly destroy the Republic of the US and the US Constitution.
That is how fragile and volatile this situation is. You better turn back to and put your faith and trust in Yahweh/Jesus AND pray long, pray hard, pray often or it won't be purdy, baby. God is the only thing standing between us and the end of the greatest republic in history so be very careful where you put your faith.
Repent of your sins and believe in the Lord, Jesus the Christ, and you will be saved for He is the only door to salvation and Heaven.
People, if you don't have Jesus as your one and only savior, you should be terrified right now.
BTW, I don't worship that stupid, incompetent, false pagan god, Myself, any more. He couldn't save his own butt. I now put all of my faith, trust, and hope in Jesus for everything, including every breath I take and every beat of my heart. He is my one and only God. I will worship no other god ever again. I learned my lesson.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
