Hope is Patience with the Lamp Lit. (Tertulian) To be a witness for God, requires patience, endurance, and faith. I am an American. I love God and my country, and adhere to the laws of the land. I consider myself a patriot who respects and loves our Servicemen, women, and veterans. Wherefore, I believe in the Constitution and what our Founding Father’s fought for, giving us freedom and democracy for all legal citizens with equality. This writer has been saved since 1982, who knows pain, joy, hope, faith, and how to STAND in Him through adversity. I pray that you the reader will be blessed and strengthened if a Christian, and inspired, convicted, and saved. FOR WE ARE SAVED BY HOPE! Romans 8:24 “And the Government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and His Name shall be called wonderful -Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6.
I beg our leadership to look deeper at the lack of proper mental health in America. I beg churches too to have more compassion as these illnesses are not of the devil. I have enclosed in this blog-site, my PDF booklet, “His Soul To Keep”. For I had a son that was Bi-polar as his father, and committed suicide in 1999 at only 19. I feel this could have been me. Guns are not the issue, better mental health and juvi laws ARE the issue. We have so many too homeless, some veterans, with a high percentage with a mental illness. This country gave up all mental health institutions in the 50’s & 60’s. There are not enough psychiatrists, not enough mental health workers, and the juvi laws, provide nothing! Once a child is legally 18 and an adult, he is on his own, and psychiatrists, psychologists, by the existing laws, cannot divulge or talk even to police, while a case is seald. THIS has to change. My son did not get the help he needed, and no one listened to me. C. S. Lewis said referring to Freud in “Mere Christianity”, that the mentally ill does not need to repent (as Alzheimer’s too), but needs to be cured. One day soon, they will do brain surgery and correct these horrific illnesses. My son’s story and struggle is on here. And for Christians? He was saved 8/2/91, and attended a Christian school until 6th grade. He was sick and needed help.
The following was printed in a little booklet from RBC Ministries, written by a high school student after Columbine, name unknown. The student had seen so much death, that it is worth remembering, as we take into account the direction of America and the leaders we choose. There are some things such as 911 and this, we should never forget.
“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We have learned how to make a living, but not a life; we’ve added years to our life, but not life to our years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner peace; we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We have higher incomes, but lower morals; we’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality. These are times of tall men, and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorces; fancier houses, but broken homes. It is a time when there is much in the show window, but nothing in the stockroom; a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose to either make a difference…..or just hit delete.” author unknown
My prayer is that God moves mightily across this nation in the next few months. I pray too for our servicemen and women as well as our veterans and their families, and leaders of this great country. I pray that You Lord are still in control of America and do not desert us, Lord, but hold us in your hands and lead us as a nation. Thank you for all you have done in my life, Lord, and thank you for your healing touch. Blessings to all of you who read this, or any of the post’s on this site.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” [Samuel Adams, The Writings of Samuel Adams, Harry Alonzo Cushing, editor (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1907), Vol. IV, p. 256, in the Boston Gazette on April 16, 1781.]
II Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by MY NAME, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek MY FACE, (Repentance) and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” I shall NOT keep silent! II Chronicles 6:42 “Oh Lord God, turn not away the face of your anointed; remember the mercies of David your servant.” As I too am your servant Lord….Everything here is your desire from your willing vessel. Thank you Jesus.
“The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.” ― A.W. Tozer If you believe that, you don’t know the word of God…For my Lord may be a God of love, but, He is also a God of wrath, and of JUSTICE! A.W. Tozer and C.M. Ward were mighty men of God with wisdom. (The Apostate Church.)
“Christianity today is man-centered, not God-centered. God is made to wait patiently, even respectfully, on the whims of men. The image of God currently popular is that of a distracted Father, struggling in heartbroken desperation to get people to accept a Saviour of whom they feel no need and in whom they have very little interest. To persuade these self-sufficient souls to respond to His generous offers God will do almost anything, even using salesmanship methods and talking down to them in the chummiest way imaginable. This view of things is, of course, a kind of religious romanticism which, while it often uses flattering and sometimes embarassing terms in praise of God, manages nevertheless to make man the star of the show.” ~ A.W. Tozer, Man, The Dwelling Place of God http://awtozerquotes.wordpress.com
Lastly, my hearts desire with this blog site, is to EDUCATE, especially youth, on God, the Holy Bible, history, especially the history of our Founding Fathers, and the birth of this great nation called, America. I also include here Biblical prophesies, as well as the history of the Jewish nation of Israel, and why she is God’s chosen. We have a lot at stake here now in America, and our decisions, or lack thereof, will effect the coming generations, and the world, especially now in another cold war with Russia, and all involved in the Arab Spring. It is imperative, that this next generation READ and learn and watch what some call very boring documentaries on PBS, Netflix, etc. For history is repeating itself. Remember, that before WWII, the American Nazi Party held big meetings in Madison Square Garden in NYC. Fascism, Nazism, Communism, or Sharia Law have no place in our America, nor is it found in the Constitution. You need to learn history. What is happening now in the world, with Russia, No Korea, China, Iran (Persia in the Bible) all the Arab nations is Biblical, a lot found now in Ezekiel 38, 39.
I have 30 years of Bible study on here from the very best. I have historic information here from the birth of America to Biblical history, that I pray that the next generation understands how crucial all this is and what is at stake. My Hope is in my Lord for a RE-Birth and Revival in America. By the way, Jefferson, Madison, and many others who were our Founding Fathers of this nation, had Holy Spirit filled CHURCH IN THE ROTUNDA in our Capital; as it was the time too of George Whitefield and the “Great Awakening”! Yes, Obama, and you political lefties, even Indians got saved! Tell that to your teachers in secular schools and the Dept. of Education! God Bless America, Israel, and all of you who read all the posts on the right of this blog site. May my work not be in vain, as you seek God to open up truths!

SALVATION: SINNERS PRAYER
Dear Lord Jesus, I now realize that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Mold me like clay Lord Jesus, in your image, so that I be a new creature in YOU Lord. Help me, for I can not rely on my own ways. Put the right Christian people in my life, so that my walk will be narrow, my eyes on You. I now open my heart’s door and repent, and ask you as SAVIOR and LORD, to take full control of me and help me to be the kind of Christian YOU want me to be. Romans 10:9-10 says: “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised HIM from the dead, you shall be saved. Take away anything in my life Lord, that is a hindrance in my walk with you Lord. For with the HEART man believes unto RIGHTEOUSNESS; and with the mouth, confession is made unto Salvation. Thank you Jesus for saving my soul. https://jeworthen.wordpress.com/the-importance-of-salvation/
