Strange Winds

It was partly cloudy, winds reported at 12 to 15; perfect sailing.

I pulled her off the sand and into the water, pointed up wind and raised the sail. After dropping dagger board and rudder, I let the bow drift until the luffing sail billowed and filled.

We were off.

The north wind heeled the little craft. With rudder in one hand and mainsheet in the other, I hooked my foot in the toehold, leaned back over the water and smiled as sunshine and water splashed everywhere. We sliced through the lake, leaving a churning, curling, wake. The wind increased, we picked up speed, I leaned back further to counterbalance the weight of the wind against the sail…

That’s how it always goes, the amazing art of sailing. No odors or roars from big, noisy, stinky, gas-hogs; just peaceful sights and sounds of sails, sky and water. There’s something about sailing that puts it all in perspective.

Trusting the Invisible to carry you across troubled waters, makes it easy to believe that all things are possible.

We were really cruising, just skipping across the water.

I leaned one way the boat leaned the other, the boom and clew (bottom corner of the sail) played patty-cake with the lake. 

Whoever said you can’t grasp the wind, never strained to rein in a sail.     

WHOOSH, just like that, all went quiet. The sail went flat. The boat lunged from starboard to port; nearly baptizing me backwards into the water. I clambered toward center to steady the vessel.

“What are you doing?” I said right out loud to the wind. It didn’t respond.

We sat, becalmed, as if in the eye of a storm. I studied the water for evidence of wind, but it was gone.

So, you can grasp the wind? Grasp it now. Rein in your sail and go.


When the wind gets knocked out of my sail, the best thing to do, is bow my head. I suppose it was something like this that day when Someone spoke, “Peace be still” and suddenly there was a great calm, as the wind and waves obeyed Him.

Lord, Creator, Master of the wind, and me; without You, I can do nothing, it’s only in You, I live and move and have my being.  

Sailing with God, positions us at the helm, to stay His course, while He provides the fuel and engine.

Then, all at once, as suddenly as it left, it came. The sail filled, the boat heeled and I scrambled into position again.

I read the waves as we slid through the water. They were troubled, churning, choppy and dark, evidencing the presence of wind. But then, in patches instead of troubled, choppy and dark, the surface was smooth, shiny and light, evidencing lack of wind, calm. Not so different, than you and me. Every wave different, some troubled, some at peace, but underneath, all the same water, all the same Source. 

Since a kid, I’ve ridden the waves, but on this day, everything was different. As we skimmed along, I scanned the surface for footprints of the wind and braced myself, prepared for sudden change.  

I can’t help but think, like this strange wind, everything has changed. Remember when only outlaws wore masks into a business…now only outlaws don’t. Once we all stood for the National Anthem, now a person who does, is different. The winds of change have blown circles around the world and our nation.

The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles. (Ecclesiastes 1:6)

Lord God Almighty who changes not, help us to be ever watchful, alert and pre-prayered.

It was all at once, exhilarating and a little bit scary. The wind and I wrestled back and forth across the bay. It turned and churned, switched and swirled as if trying to flip me into the abyss. The way the little craft swayed and bucked reminded me of my rodeo days…when I was young and dumb and wild as the wind.

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:8

Holy Spirit, help us to accept Your invitation be born of You and change the trajectory of our headlong race toward hell.

A thousand or so miles east of here another wind swirled and spun and raged, it was named Hurricane Isaias. It had around 100 mph winds (a bit more than I’d be willing to sail in) but up about 2,000 feet reconnaissance aircraft recorded 140 mph winds due to its interaction with the upper level trough; which can trigger the pulling down of very strong winds.


For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

Almighty God, we need Your protection. Will You open our eyes to see the spiritual battle; grant us wisdom and courage to fight the Good fight.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)

 My friend, Dave, understands the battle and sent this text:

“Are you aware that Isaias is the Spanish spelling for Esaias which is the Greek spelling for Isaiah? Maybe we should refresh ourselves with the prophecies of Isaiah to see if there is a warning for the present times”

Eternal Lord, You dwell outside of time; You knew Isaias would be the name of a hurricane at such a time as this. Is there anything You’d like to tell us?

The book of Isaias is the first of the Latter Prophets in the Bible. Written 700 years before Christ, yet spoke with articulate accuracy about His life. Isaias is quoted more than any other by Jesus and the New Testament.

Every Christmas we’re reminded of the prophecy of Jesus virgin birth spoken by Isaias:

Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel; meaning God with us. (Isaias 7:14; Matthew 1:2-3) 

Jesus read from Isaias when He publicly announced His ministry:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,

Because He has anointed Me

To preach the gospel to the poor;

He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives

And recovery of sight to the blind,

To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down.

And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.  And He began to say to them,

“Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

(Luke 4:17-21; Isaias 61)

We probably never noticed Isaias 26:20 until it was made famous because of its parallel to the coronavirus quarantine.

BUT CONTEXT is king and with the grace and poise and perfect harmony that only the Bible can give, the very next verse reveals what everything is pointing to: 

The King is coming out of heaven to pour His wrath on the inhabitants of earth for sin; their bloodshed will be exposed.

Go home, my people,

    and lock your doors!

Hide yourselves for a little while

    until the Lord’s anger has passed.

 Look! The Lord is coming from heaven

    to punish the people of the earth for their sins.

The earth will no longer hide those who have been killed.

    They will be brought out for all to see.

(Isaiah26:20-21 NLT)

 

Did you know, Isaias, means: "Yahweh is salvation,"

Omnipresent Lord, help us to hear You. We invite Your Presence to blow across our hearts, Your nation Your world, removing chaff and saving the savable.

Come quickly Lord Jesus.

Trump of God

With every sunrise and sunset, every rainbow after a storm,
God paints a picture, tells a story.
God is a story teller.  True stories.  
He is eternal. He lives outside time. He knows the end from the beginning.
When He tells a story, pay attention, it’s His-tory…in advance.
His Book is the greatest story ever told. Story after story; all tell One story. The story of Jesus. The amazing story of God’s great, great, great love.

THE TRUMP OF GOD
The trump of God, is only one phrase, mentioned one time, in the Bible, God’s Story…yet, it’s a story in and of itself. 
Today, like it or not, love it or hate it, that phrase, that story, is being lived out in flesh and blood, living color, right before our very eyes.
Way back when God inspired the writer to use the phrase, “trump of God,” He knew a man named Trump would be President of the United States at such a time as this.
Make no mistake, the phrase, “trump of God” was no coincidence. It was placed in scripture in such a place by Providence, for such a time as this.  
It's all coming to pass just as He said. Not necessarily as He wills, but exactly as He said.

SEVEN TRUMPETS
I find it interesting that, chronologically, "the trump of God" kicks off seven years of tribulation and seven trumpets.
MyOlive Tree, wrote of President Trump:
The number seventy (70) is made up of two numbers—and in the Bible, it represents perfection in the number 7, and completeness in the number 10. The history of the Jewish people is in some way tied to the number “seventy” more than 50 times throughout the scriptures.
In Israel’s 70th year of independence (Hebrew year 5778), the United States embassy was moved by President Trump to Jerusalem.
President Trump was 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old when he took office in 2017.
President Trump was born 700 days before Israel’s statehood on May 14, 1948.
President Trump was elected on Benjamin Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month, and 7th full day in office.
A total solar eclipse occurred 7 months after President Trump’s first day in office.
“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.”—1 Corinthians 1:27-29

TRUMP & KING CYRUS
Many have compared Trump to King Cyrus in the Bible. Cyrus decreed that the temple should be rebuilt in Jerusalem. President Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and decreed that the US embassy be moved to Jerusalem.

TRUMP & JESUS
Comparing Trump to a Persian King is one thing…but, to Jesus? Some might say comparing brash Trump to meek and mild Jesus is sacrilege. But, like always, God has a story to tell. He’s using Trump to do it.
First let’s get the story straight. Jesus was no meek and mild pushover. Neither were the folks He’s chosen to use throughout history. Abraham slaughtered four kings and crew that had taken his nephew captive. Moses saw two men fighting and stepped in and killed one. The army fled, but David said, I’ll take off the giant’s head. John the Baptist lost his head for exposing Herod’s sin. Paul was a saint murdering zealot.
God is not fearful, bashful or timid. He’s as bold as a lion and chooses those who get things done. President Trump is one of them.   
Jesus faced constant attacks from scribes and pharisees. He wasn’t afraid to call them out. Or, call them names like; hypocrites, liars, blind guides, white washed sepulchers, snakes, brood of vipers, children of the devil.
We still have scribes and pharisees today, only the names have changed to media and politicians. Like Jesus, Trump isn’t afraid to call them out. Or, call them names like; hypocrites, liars, leakers, crooked, corrupt, fake news, enemy of the people, lame stream media.
Jesus tells the Truth, even if it hurts, even if unpopular. He’s hated for it.  Trump does the same and is hated for it too.
Jesus left His Heaven, took off His royal robe of splendor and glory to walk dusty streets, be ridiculed and beat by those He came to save.  Trump left his ivory tower to walk the streets, be mocked, ridiculed and slandered by the very nation he’s trying to save.



JUST SOMETHING ABOUT TRUMP
It’s been told that when Ronal Reagan was President, he met Donald Trump and said, “For the life of me, and I’ll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with a president.” Like every positive statement about President Trump, some claim this is not true. Which interestingly, is exactly what they did to Jesus.
Remember, it’s not about the goodness of Trump, it’s about the love of God, using a vessel to tell His-tory.
Jesus didn’t fit into the “leader” role as He went about His Father’s business, doing good.
The scribes and pharisees (media and politicians) refused to acknowledge the good He did and accused Him of breaking the law at every turn.
He healed someone on the Sabbath. The accusation was absurd, of course, everyone knew that healing someone was a good thing and would never be condemned—no matter what day it was. But there was something about Jesus that threatened the establishment and therefore, no matter what Jesus did, they found a way to twist and spin the narrative to accuse Him of wrong doing.
Sound familiar?
There is a hatred so deep, so vile, so dark that those who have it cannot see any good in President Trump no matter what. Period.
A friend of the people.
Jesus, wasn’t like other “leaders.” He walked and talked among the people—regular, common folk. He didn’t leak eloquent words. He spoke plain, simple words, of by and for, the people. He got dusty, hot, thirsty, tired, as he walked with them and talked with them. He loved the people and they loved Him.
This drove the elite mad.
Trump is no politician. His words are anything but eloquent. He doesn’t “leak” anything. If he has something to say, he says it. Bold. Loud. Strong. No sugar-coating. He loves to mingle with the people. He spends more time wrestling with the “scribes and pharisees” than any president, any politician, any leader, any person…since Jesus. 
This drives the elite mad.
Guilt by association
The attacks against Jesus spread to anyone associated with Him. The accusations were foolish and unfounded, but they were desperate and scared and couldn’t afford to give Jesus, even the smallest, win. They threw everything they could at Jesus and His friends. It didn’t matter if it made sense or if it was true or fake news.
His disciples were accused of breaking the law, because, believe it or not…they didn’t wash their hands.  A man born blind was healed. The elite denied the Truth and slandered the man; called him a liar and a fake.
The times and names have changed but the battle remains the same. Flynn, Stone and the Russian hoax.
Jesus fed multitudes and gave fishermen the catch of their lives. Trump’s policy fed multitudes by creating the best job opportunities of their lives.
Lazarus, was raised from the dead. It couldn’t be denied. They tried to find a way to make him dead again. Trump raised America’s economy from the dead, it couldn’t be denied. They’ve used everything from virus to riots to make it dead again.   
They said Jesus works were of the devil. He responded by saying a house divided cannot stand.  Today they say the works of Trump are evil and the speaker of the house divided the State of the Union asunder.  

Jesus ministry lasted three years, and then the King of kings was given a new crown, not made of gold, but a crown of thorns. It was three years, to the day, from inauguration to the first confirmation of novel corona (meaning new crown) virus in the United States. 

God has painted a picture.
He has written His-tory…on our hearts. We all from the least to the greatest, even the demons, know Him. Thus, we all are without excuse.  
Throughout His-tory God has chosen to use the unlikely. The foolish things to confound “the wise.” In every case, those God chose, are those the world rejected. Even, His very best, His only begotten Son. They chose darkness over Light and crucified the Lord of glory.  
I’ve had this foreboding thought that the parallels of Trump and Jesus, will continue…to death.
The vile hatred against Trump is of the same spirit that manipulated the masses to cry “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” I’m no prophet. I haven’t had a dream or a vision from God showing the future. But, it saddens me to admit, if President Trump and even his family were killed, I wouldn’t be surprised.  


What’s next?
The Bible uses the words: “trump of God” and “the last trump” as follows:  
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”  (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:52)

Make no mistake, God knew Trump would be President when He inspired those words to be chosen in this text of scripture. His-tory will be fulfilled to the letter, every jot, every tittle.

Declaration of Independence


In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

From Deck of Titanic...Is That Iceberg The Great Tribulation?


From listening, praying, reading & observing it's becoming more and more clear that various events and elements are not at all what they are purported to be, but actually pieces of the same puzzle; orchestrated and put in place by the same hand with a plan to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and the world.

One example is, The Green New Deal. It was never really about the environment. It was created by Marxists to promote Marxism; socialism...which is the pet name for communism. 

Another example is that, Black Lives Matter, is not about helping blacks. It's done more, much more, to hurt, than help, blacks. It is run by Marxists with the same evil agenda. To burn down the American system for the sake of communism.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J68p5l-gjQ
It's a fact. You can look it up. If you can get past prejudice and propaganda. 
To search the internet without a biased agenda, I recommend using https://duckduckgo.com/
There's many examples, but that's not the reason for this post. 
We just traveled around 2,000 miles, by way of two separate vehicles and one jet. We didn't need to know the countless wrong ways to go. We only needed to know, one right way, to arrive safe and sound at our destination. 
As we sat waiting to board our flight, there was a commotion at the gate counter.
 A young man had failed to pay for his carry on bag. He was told it'd cost an additional $40.00. He got a little angry saying he didn't have any money and he couldn't leave his bag. They went back and forth like that for a minute or two. 
I leaned over and pretended to pick up two twenty dollar bills and said, "Excuse me sir, I think you dropped this." The young man snatched the twenties without a thanks and handed it to the gate keeper. 
The gatekeeper made a sad face. "I'm sorry, we don't take cash." 
He shook his head and said something I couldn't hear, but even if I did, I don't think I'd be able to repeat it. He started to put the money in his pocket. 
"Ma'am," I said,  "can you take this?" I held up a credit card.
She nodded, "Yes" 
I looked at the young man. He handed me back the money and said, "thanks." 
I handed the gatekeeper my card. She smiled and whispered, "thank you."
It makes no difference whatsoever, but that young man was black.
That was the most excitement of our trip. Thousands of miles, hundreds of people. Not one hiccup. Not one shred of discontent. Well, except, perhaps a little from me, saying, "I'll sure be glad when we get off this plane so I can take off this stupid mask."
We traveled from the bottom of the US to the top and didn't encounter a single hateful person. We didn't see any protesters or rioters, no buildings were on fire and not one window was broken. 
Not far from where we landed was the spot where George Floyd was murdered and the launching pad for our country's most recent upheaval. We were told some knuckleheads blocked the interstate but we didn't see any of it. Thankfully
But...the media makes it seem like the whole world's on fire. The ever spinning chaos these days is exhausting, confusing. 
We weren't made for this. We were never equipped, mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually to see and hear non-stop chaos, corruption, evil.  
Since the beginning we were warned to stay away from the knowledge of the wrong way, the evil way.
Don’t eat from or even touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, God warned the naked couple in the perfect autonomous zone. They already knew all about, good. Everything God had made was good—they just didn’t know anything about evil—and that was very good.
We see the undeniable evidence in the innocence of a child; before they’re tainted and jaded and persuaded by evil. 
There is good news, however. Even if the hand that's placing and orchestrating the placing of the puzzle pieces has an evil intent; the puzzle was created by Someone Who is Good. 
God knew the end from the beginning and gave us the big picture—just like the one on a puzzle box. It’s all spelled out, piece by piece, line by line, precept upon precept…in the perfect puzzle, the only Holy Book, God’s word, the Bible.

It's all coming to pass just as He said. NOT necessarily as He wills, but exactly as He said.

It’s important to know beyond the shadow of a doubt, that everything that happens, isn’t God’s doing. He doesn’t do evil. Ever. He never tempts or makes anyone do evil. Ever. 
Therefore, we must understand that the vile, evil, awful, we see everyday on the news, is not from God and it’s NOT His will. It cannot be overstated enough; much of what happens in the world is NOT God’s will. Otherwise, Jesus never would have prayed, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” or, “Not My will, but Thine…”

Make no mistake, the world is the Titanic, moving full steam ahead, on a collision course with an iceberg called The Great Tribulation; it’s seven years deep and wide.
Thankfully, there’s a Way to avoid going down. We only need to know the One Right Way, The Truth.  

If we know Jesus, we can say, with confidence, the phrase that President Trump has been repeating: THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

Mutilated Statues of Stone Whets Appetite for Flesh, Blood and Bone

HIS-tory tells us:
“In the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
As blood triggers a feeding frenzy among sharks, so it does with the anarchist...and antichrist.
Mutilation of statues made of stone only whets the appetite for flesh, blood and bone.
It’s a historical certainty.
Recently came the eerie query: “What happened to those who did not get on board with the French Revolution?”
“Chopped!” the mob’s response; echoing the haunting sound of a guillotine.
Underscoring the trajectory of the fury, the name went from autonomous zone to, CHOP.
This fury, these flames engulfing demonicrat stations around the nation, will not burn themselves out.
“The grave,The barren womb,The earth that is not satisfied with water—And the fire never says, ‘Enough!’” (Proverbs 30:16)
History also shows that no leader, who fails to quell a rebellion, has ever stayed in power.
Citizens disrespect weakness. For this reason I've sent multiple requests to the President and powers that be to move Law & Order from just tweets to the streets. 
By speaking the Truth and standing against evil, we're able to save the savable...not the world. 
“My hope is not in this life, but in its destination and its Author. It is time for the church to decide to look forward to the Master’s coming, and not try to make Heaven happen here on earth. It simply won’t succeed – because it is not supposed to work." Pastor Randall D. Smith.
Well...it's not supposed to work until after all hell breaks loose and Jesus shows up to quench the fires, quell the riots, quiet and cure the planet.
It's all coming to pass just as He said. NOT necessarily as He wills, but exactly as He said:
"Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Rev. 21:1-8
