A Grand Deception
Today is my son Jack and his older sister Jaden's birthday. They are exactly 20 years apart. Yes, I like to live dangerously. This does make the process of figuring out how old they are pretty easy. If Jack is 11, which he is today, then Jaden is 31. Easy peasy.
In writing today's blog, My thoughts keep returning to our country. I often wonder if the world I am leaving to my kids is better than the one I came from. I think that's every parents hope that we leave things better for our children.
One thing I try to pay forward is my faith in God thru Jesus Christ. In reading our Lords story, one set of passages keep running through my mind.
That's by design.
We see that towards the end of Jesus's life and ministry, He and His disciples are in Jerusalem. Keep in mind, the disciples were just simple guys who fished and worked with their hands in their previous life. In Jerusalem with it's magnificent buildings, you can imagine the awe. No different than your first time in New York City.
Matthew Chapter 24: 1-4
24 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.
This is the start of His detailed series on the end time. Notice what His first statement was. Jesus didn't answer the disciples with a date or even a identifying event, which He certainly could have.
Jesus said; "Take heed that no one deceives you." In other words, theres going to be organized deception, and if you are not careful, you will be deceived...lied to, mislead...you get the idea.
I was drawn to a You Tube video yesterday. This video was of a Congressional Hearing between Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and head of the Joint Chiefs General Dunford. The subject was a No Fly Zone over Syria.
Just so that you know, a No Fly Zone is exactly that. One where the United States establishes an area where anything that flies becomes targeted. We have had them over all of our battlegrounds, and never were they contested. After all our Air Force is pretty awesome.
However now, there's an 800lb gorilla in the corner...Russia.
Watch this brief video.
Hillary Clinton doubled down on it during the recent debates
They beat us to the punch and declared their own No Fly Zone enforced with their S300 anti-aircraft Missile system
Ok I know this is not bakery fresh news, but it's important...very important. So please stay with me.
Lets step back a moment. Syria is embroiled in a civil war. The US has its own intention for this war. They want Assad out, and are willing to back whomever to get this done. Evidently we don't care who it is just 'Get 'er done...'
So who could be use to get Assad out of power? Who would be willing to risk life and capitol? This is the thing that the international gloabalists play with constantly. Any guesses? How about ISIS?
That's right. Those murderous thugs that are financially backed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Have you forgot the "mistakes" made by the US military in dropping weaponry to the wrong guys?
A quick search of where ISIS gets their weapons brings up a ton of links. Think Turkey, bought with monies from the Saudis and Qatari's.
Also, remember Benghazi? Yes, Benghazi. Hillary Clintons millstone. Interesting article from the Brits on the CIA gunrunning operation.
Now...enter President Elect Donald Trump...
President Trump declared over and over that we will attack ISIS. Its obvious that the Obama Administration is not making a real concerted effort to wipe these guys out. Could we wipe them out? Of course....but if we did that, that would go against our own policy and desires.
Its confusing, isn't it?
Remember, don't be deceived....
