How heartbreaking to see that flag underneath the US flag that people have died to put in place. What's next- the Palestinian flag? Actually, come to think of it, that wouldn't surprise me at all.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” — Romans 8:18
Where did they ever get the idea that the rainbow would be a good symbol for them?
Did I say something wrong? cause what's with the **** symbols in place of the word I used above, you know the one that rymes with ray.Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction
@Hisbeloved -- That word is on a 'filtered' list. I did a whole thread on this subject and it filtered out of existence... LOL.
" Where did they ever get the idea that the rainbow would be a good symbol for them?"
Satan takes and steals anything that GOD ordained and corrupts it, he is a liar and deceiver from the beggining.
Your right Tom, the sins of this nation are piling up to heaven,and I sometimes think that the only thing that has stayed the Lords hand is because of our standing with Israel but if the O has anything to say about it, we wont be for long,and then Judgement may really fall hard, far beyond what we have seen thus far.In fact I also sometimes wonder if, after the rapture God destroys America as he did Sodom.
I see, is it because of the whole hate crime bill thingy?
So this whole month is an Abomination Celebration?
Does any one else feel like Habakkuk?
How so? share with us please.
I just wanna go home, where righteousness reigns.
Free from oppression, free from pain.
Free from the darkness of a world gone insane.
Come Lord Jesus, please come.
Habakkuk expresses the attitude that many righteous people have. He is ourtraged at the violence and injustice in his society. He lists six different problems. His list is repetitious, but it emphasizes just how bad things were. There was sin, wickedness, destruction and violence, no justice in the courts, and the wicked outnumbered the righteous. Does this sound like our society?
In verse 4 he says, "the law is ignored." God's word was no longer the standard. It is now illegal to have the 10 commandments hang on the wall in a public school, so I think things are even worse in America.
Habakkuk is preaching against it, but he is having little effect. Habakkuk raises a good question. Why does evil go unpunished? Why do the wicked prosper? Why doesn’t God do something?
Look back to verse 2. Habakkuk has been praying. Evidently, he has been praying for a long time because he says, “How long, O Lord, will I call for help, And Thou wilt not hear?” He also thinks God is indifferent and inactive.
Some people think that men of faith never question God. They just sit and wait faithfully and patiently. But one thing we can learn from Habakkuk is that this is a misconception. Those who trust in God can and do question God.
God is doing something. He is raising up a foreign nation, the Babylonians, to come and destroy Judah. He tells Habakkuk, “You would not believe if you were told.”2 Why? Because they are really wicked. They were worse than the Jews.3 Verses 6-11 describe just how evil they are. The reason for this description is to show that they are so powerful, no one can stop them. They will certainly destroy Judah.
We see in verse 11 that they will be held guilty for their wickedness, but God is going to use them anyway.
Most of us have been praying for the evil in our society hoping for revival. What if God sent the Soviet Union or Sadam Hussein to conquer America, to instill communism or a dictatorship, imprison all the Christians, etc. What would you think about that answer? Would you say God didn’t answer your prayer?
This points us to another principle we can learn from Habakkuk. God doesn’t always give us the answers we want or expect. We usually have it in our mind how we want God to answer our prayers. When He does it differently, how do you respond?
That's a good question, Diego. I was thinking about this contradictory stance this morning, in that, we want Jesus to come for us, but we don't want any more huge disasters, and we don't want America destroyed, or Israel attacked. The truth is, there will be plenty of disasters and destruction between now and true peace for Israel, not because we want such a thing, but because God Himself saw this would happen and recorded it for us to read. God Himself will take care of His people. To pray for the peace of Jerusalem means to ask for the Tribulation to start, the AC to be revealed, America to be judged, etc. There will be no true peace for them or anyone else until we get through that time period. We can't change this.
Yes I think so too Joseph, in fact it could be ,since the federal reserve is symbolic of our economy part of the judgement could be a complete stock market crash.
Amen Diago..we should be careful what we pray for, for we might get it.
June is pride month? dint realize that. Makes me think about the saying "pride goes before a fall"
USA is surely falling. Memorial weekend, i woke up that friday morning with a huge sense of impending dread/doom for this land.
June very well could be the month the Rapture happens, then sudden destruction, just like the situation of Sodom and Gomorra, where as soon as lot was taken out (rapture) , for he was grabbed by the arms by the angels at the city gates, to hasten his departure, so will we be taken up by the angles at the last moment, like unto lot, for he had to leave the city before the sun rose, or even started to touch the horizon.
Sooner than we think ====>>>> Rapture
