While America is in distress, the parallel couldn't be more telling as our country is being torn apart.
The world's largest free-flying American flag was torn in half after severe thunderstorms in Wisconsin on Tuesday evening, according to an image obtained by WTMJ-TV. The Acuity Insurance flag, located in the company's headquarters in Sheboygan, is measured at 70' by 140', and weighs 340 pounds. It is nearly 100-feet taller than the Statue of Liberty, according to Acuity Insurance's website. Constructing the flagpole in the area, where temperatures can reach below zero-degrees, was also a feat in of itself — over 500 gallons of paint were used to layer the 420,000 pound pole, and 680 cubic yards of concrete were applied for its foundation.
It's sad to watch these things taking place, but I take heart in the fact that Jesus said there would be days like this - and in the fact that He is surely coming soon.
I haven't been watching the news a whole lot, but our town Sunday into Monday was a mess -- looting, vandalism, arson, people just driving through town like maniacs. Had to drive past the high school today and it looked like someone tried to break one of the huge windows that is part of a walkway (still trying to find info on when that happened). I think things have calmed down, but I did read an article that the National Guard will be helping to guard some commercial areas so that the police are free to respond to other calls. I am guessing like patrolling at our mall that is closed because of covid. I heard a big helicopter earlier today, but we aren't far from a National Guard base (station?), so we occasionally hear/see the huge airplanes.
Trying to use the situation to share Truth on Facebook, but sometimes I have no words.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
It's now an almost constant stream of signs and events. Unmistakable to those of us on the inside (as it were), but to those outside the family, yet perceptive enough to have an inking that something is amiss, it must be quite baffling. I think most of the lost are totally sheep to the slaughter (heads down, moving along), having no clue about what's about to happen.
Reminds me of the lightening strike that hit St Peters back in 2013 when the Pope resigned and Francis was selected. It was struck twice in a row. Eerily, if you watch closely, the Washington Monument looks like it flashed twice as well. Also, many have suggested that the Vatican is the religious babylon and America the economic babylon. And that Francis is the False Prophet and the Anti-Christ may be coming from America. Strange coincidences?

EnochWalked: www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog-april-21-2021/ "Netanyahu: Bennett has cut deal with Lapid to be PM of left-wing gov’t. Yamina chair rips PM for ‘holding country hostage,’ pushing for ‘5th, 6th, 7th election,’". Two weeks until a new PM then?

bernie: Mike, Macron is basically saying it needs to be changed because it's wrong to not hold someone responsible just because they were on drugs. Why the courts got it wrong is beyond me.

EnochWalked: "The word assassin is often believed to derive from the word hashshashin (Arabic: حشّاشين, ħashshāshīyīn, also hashishin, hashashiyyin, or assassins), and shares its etymological roots with hashish (/hæˈʃiːʃ/ or /ˈhæʃiːʃ/; from Arabic: حشيش ḥashīsh)."

EnochWalked: I think you're right YS. I believe the theory was that the assassins of old may have used it as a performance enhancing drug. "it is commonly believed that Assassins were under the influence of hashish during their killings or during their indoctrination"

boraddict: To be a god is to be a guide. To follow a god is to follow a guide. To be your own guide is to be your own god. To follow God is to not follow yourself as a guide. Follow Jesus. My thought for the day.
