    In the midst of another storm
    the TRUE "Lord Of All Worlds"
    is called upon...
    you remember dont you ?
    The same God we chose to remove from our schools...
    now...look at our institutes of higher learning
    The same God we chose to remove from all state and government offices...
    Now...see how vulnerable they are from only a few determined minds ?
    The same God that we forget about while trading and gaining
    those green-backed papers that hypocritically claim- "In God We Trust"
    so
    yesterday in terror we called out to Him...for mercy !
    today ...we call out to Him...for Revenge !

    What hypocrites we have become
    knowing the ship we ride
    was being guided by those who
    are not guided by spiritual laws
    but
    by "Laws of the Land"
    chasing monetary gain
    and physical pleasures
    surely not seeking
    that which is pleasing to Him.

    The means by which
    this chastisement has come
    is not important
    what is important is
    why we were chastised so severly...
    and what is THIS Nation doing
    behind our backs..
    while we do our own deeds
    in shadow
    not seeking His Will
    in our daily affairs
    while showing more concern
    for our own-so-called civil and human rights
    ..when we should be above
    ALL things
    - seeking His Will for us...and all things would be added.

    So as these events begin to
    be forgotten what changes will this Nation
    make concerning God..

    My prediction....none !

    "We call on Him in the midst of doom, and when he brings us to safety....we forget Him ..surely.

    Maybe..this chastisement will have no show of Grace....do we think we can forever disrespect God's Mercy ?

    Surely in these sad events...there is a lesson for man.

    Fear not; I am the first and the last. Ezek. 1:28

    I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and death. Rom. 6:9

    Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall take place after these... Mal 2:7


    Gypsyman ... yes, I do agree that there are lessons for everyone that comes quickly in the aftermath of doom!

    Thank you for your artistic approach!


    Much :heart:

    Yes, there are lesson to be learned in the aftermath.
    Unlike God...I pray we don't forget them.
    We will soon know. God must be restored to His rightful place.
    First in our hearts, then our communities...and ultimately unto a nation which has continously tried to remove Him from memory.
