"Who's In Charge?"

 
Dear John and our family,
   
   I don't know what's going on in this country except if we don't get the Right man in the White House, it's all over for the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.  If we, as a country don't get our heads on straight, we're going to be in deep yogurt for a long time.  A given!  It's really a BIG chess game isn't it, i.e, the one who can see how the other will play wins?  Good chance! The one who has the most money?  Maybe but not always!   Money often takes the trump EXCEPT FOR ONE THING, the SOURCE,  GOD's WORD, The BIBLE!    For instance:  When Gideon was readying to fight Israel's battle......(KJV)
Judges 7:4
And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go."   (God was saying to do this lest Israel believe they won by their own hands, paraphrased.)

In the end, "Ecclesiastes 9:11  "I...saw under sun, that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."
9:12  "For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.     9:13  This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seems great unto me."
 
God's Blessing be upon us all as we watch and pray for His Promised Coming.
Amen.
