    Psalm 11:3 is very profound. Today we live in a world where politicians n people don't really fear God. They legalize things like homosexuality, take God out of school, Christians get bullied for standing up. But I am praying for an anointing to build and restore like Nehemiah. Righteousness and godliness must reign. It is time to wake up. We serve a powerful. GOD!

    THIS IS PREDICTING 9 11 ! " The wicked shoot at the upright in heart " They did not have tall buildings then, they would have been called "uprights ". The planes hit in "the heart " of the building if this were a person it would have been in the area of the heart. " If the foundations be destroyed " now their talking in plural, 2,as in the twin towers, not as before, a foundation. "What can the righteous do ". No one righteous still knows what happened in 9 11 , only the evil, wicked who did this! "He shall rain snares fire and brimstone " The buildings are burning and falling! "Flee as a bird to your Mountain ". The planes, the buildings!
