Martial Law in America?

Martial Law.

It's for 2nd and 3rd world countries who can't get their act together or who have a dictator that wants to maintain control.

I suggest America will see martial law within 6-9 months of a "default" by our government, if the default leads to national economic failure.

The Constitution will be suspended. Civil rights will be suspended. Freedom of movement will be restricted. Information/television/telecommunications/internet will be controlled.  Curfews will be imposed. And, oh yes, firearms will be confiscated.

I suggest the POTUS wants it that way.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

May God have mercy on the United States of America.

May her people wake up.

May her leaders lead.

Debt, Default & Doom

I believe that what's happening in Washington is no mistake. In fact, I believe God is allowing it to happen to hasten the introduction of the anti-Christ.

An upside-down American flag is a sign of distress.

In order for the anti-Christ to rise to power, the world must be in absolute chaos and looking for a "savior".  The economic destruction of the United States would set the stage for the world chaos that the anti-Christ needs.

For the past several years, powers have been in force to ruin America. We have seen debt rise to more than double the previous 230 plus years of our existence.

Our debt is owned by foreign governments.

Our fall would mean their fall as well.

The current president has no desire to see America succeed. In fact, he has been at work to undermine and undo the very essence of our culture.

He ran on a platform of transparency and cooperation. Neither has been true in his administration.

In fact, he has been the most divisive president in US history; and he has the media in his back pocket. He/they have made us believe the fight is between Republicans and Democrats or even liberals and conservatives.


The fight is between patriots and socialists!  On a deeper level, the fight is not even between people, but between the forces of darkness jockeying for positions of power.

I believe that we are about to be living in a post-American world, as least from the point of view of what America used to be.

The USA will soon stand for the "United Socialists of America".

I hope I'm wrong.

May God have mercy on us all.

Maranatha, Lord Jesus!

Blah Update

I see I've not even posted a picture this month (September).

I feel like I have a lot to say, but I don't want to, for various and sundry reasons.

Dad's passing has really affected me.

I hardly even feel like visiting with people. As a pastor, that ain't a good thing.

Fatigue is my companion. I feel like I could sleep for a week.

It is hard to even write these words.

My appetite hasn't diminished. That ain't a good thing, either.

I could sure use one of those 100 baht foot massages that we could get in Thailand.

I've exceeded my allowed chiropractic visits for this year. That is a very bad thing.

Things are going very well at church.

My older daughter made Spanish Club queen and is in the running for Homecoming Queen.

My younger daughter was honored as having the highest EOI score in English in her school for last year.

My wife has to have  benign cyst removed.

We are going to Israel after Thanksgiving.

I haven't been fishing this whole year.

My best friend is going to retire next spring after he turns FIFTY. (that's just wrong)

Dad's Caring Bridge

We recently found out that Dad has stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It has spread to his liver, lungs, and bones.

It was just a few weeks ago that he was up, around, and riding around the neighborhood on his 4 wheeler.

Today, he is fighting for his life and only has days, if not hours, to live.

We have established a Caring Bridge account for him to keep everyone up to date.

Prayers for God's mercy on him and strength for my mom is much appreciated.

I really hate cancer.

Helping the Tornado Victims in Moore, OK

Many of us feel a need to help in some tangible way. You are discouraged from self-deploying, or simply going down to help out. Quite frankly, you’ll most like just be in the way and become part of the problem.

The very best way to help is to pray! Pray for the ongoing rescue effort. Pray for the families who lost loved ones. Pray for the first responders and volunteers. Pray for God to be glorified in this tragedy.

In lieu of going, you can give. Everyone knows that the Red Cross provides meals to those in need during disasters. But did you know that the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief  (OK DR) is the organization that PREPARES a majority (if not all) of those meals?

OK DR is a volunteer based organization, but without the high priced CEOs that some of the relief organizations have been criticized for. The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma pays the modest salary of the director of OK DR, which is provided by Oklahoma Baptists.

When you give to OK DR, you can rest assured that 100% of your donation goes to relief efforts. Give at this link: http://www.okdisasterhelp.com/

Here in Wagoner, if you’d like to give goods, First Baptist Church is collecting items to give to victims.  They are currently asking for  bottled water, diapers, baby formula and baby wipes, and toiletries. Do not bring clothes!

Rather than duplicate the efforts of collecting and distributing, Immanuel Southern will be cooperating with FBC Wagoner. They are located at 401 NE 2nd, Wagoner, OK 74467.  Their phone is 918-485-2428.

If you’d like to go and physically do “hands-on” ministry, you are probably out of luck for this disaster.   Most disaster relief agencies, including OK DR,  require training. What you can do, however, is sign up with a disaster relief agency and be ready the next time a disaster strikes. Unfortunately, you probably won’t have to wait very long.
