    Eagle rock, I think you are right on. It's last call here, especially with all the crud 2105-16 saw passed in the house. Rev. 9:21 ,they repented not of their murders (abortion), sorceries(Greek:pharmacist),fornications (Strong's doesn't call it regular immoral sex!) and their thefts. We live in a drug culture with the spirit of rebellion( to God's laws, man changed his to suit) God bless y'all

    I think Isaiah is a truly a likeness of what is happening in the world today .verse 20.
  • James Ndungu for verse 4
    God chose Israel to be His ambassador,but they didn 't recognize themselves as chosen generation, to represent God, but they did not,to seek and save,there for the Israelites received the course instead of blessing,the Israelites of today are repeating instead of taking advantage of reading the history, searching the scripture for the truth. May IAM intervene and make us to do what Elijah, John the Baptist did reprove the Church and state. Amen.

    The Lord woke me with this chapter on my mind. He said it was for America. This is in line with what the Lord had me write 15 or more ago with "Letters to the churches. " Which ended with the Lords quote about those letter. "Can the wind blow and the leaf quiver and it is not I says the Lord! " Soon you see these things come to pass.
