What? That was my initial reaction. Then I realized: Hot Air!! All is hot air!!! No matter what happens, politicans, yes, this includes Barak Obama as well as ALL OUR CONGRESS, will try to make things look as good as possible. America is in trouble and no one will admit the truth. Taxes, taxes and more of the same is our future. Less growth, few jobs, WAR ON EVERY FRONT, an old age without the entitlement programs we have been paying for. HOT AIR, ALL IS HOT AIR!!! Have you heard hot air before?? I have, and I know where....
Jeremiah 14:10-15 (WEB)
10) Thus says Yahweh to this people, Even so have they loved to wander; they have not refrained their feet: therefore Yahweh does not accept them; now he will remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.
11) Yahweh said to me, Don’t pray for this people for their good.
12) When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and meal offering, I will not accept them; but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
13) Then I said, Ah, Lord Yahweh! behold, the prophets tell them, You shall not see the sword, neither shall you have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
14) Then Yahweh said to me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name; I didn’t send them, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke I to them: they prophesy to you a lying vision, and divination, and a thing of nothing, and the deceit of their own heart.
15) Therefore thus says Yahweh concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name, and I didn’t send them, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
God speaks the truth to the people. Sometimes it is hard, sometimes not, but it is the truth. Refreshing, simply refreshing!!! Yet amid all this depression, there is hope. We can count on God, no matter WHAT!!!! In the days ahead, this is a good thought to remember. In the meantime, our country is STILL HOLDING TOGETHER, we are OK. That is wonderful news on this cold Christmas day. My wish for America is that we never get so far away from God that will not let the godly pray for this country! May God bless America!!!!!
