In My World, Things Don’t Appear To Be Adding Up!

Yesterday the job numbers were released. Obama and those who are his mouthpiece are saying how great the economy is doing. They have said the unemployment rate is at the lowest its been in years, etc.

At the same time I am in Palm Beach County for work. The local news said, 47 homes valued at $5 million and up have been foreclosed upon in 2013. I have watched that area of our country go down hill over the last 5-6 years . There are empty stores and houses everywhere. Some entire shopping plazas are like Ghost Towns!

How many of you have really skilled, great people in your sphere of life who are unemployed and been actively seeking employment for years? I have many friends in that situation.

So our president keeps saying how great everything is going, while the facts are over 11 million Americans have just quite looking for work. Add those numbers into the equation and our unemployment rate is still hovering around 10%. Out of the jobs produced the bulk of them are part-time. Obama care will force many more people to part-time status so employers won’t have to provide coverage.

When you read history, you wonder how did Hitler ever get away with what he did. How did the people let him rise to that kind of power? How did Castro get Cuba to a place where all the freedoms are gone and the country is run into the ground? You no longer need to study those countries to see how it happens. All you have to do is open your eyes and look at what is taking place right here under Obama’s regime. The Government is getting more and more power. More things are coming under their control. It is very possible soon all health care will be government-run. Next will be the bogus “Carbon Tax” to cripple industry. While we the sheeple seem to be powerless to stop the mad dash to bring the successful down and the impoverished up. Unfortunately, that process only brings everyone down and the Government up. Corrupt government officials who hoard resources for themselves is what makes third world countries, third world! The people suffer and it doesn’t matter as long as the fat cats in power are prospering!

It is sad to watch! But is there a Higher Ruler accomplishing a bigger purpose?

But then I read Isaiah and see what it looks like when a people turn their back on the God of heaven. I see what it looks like when God removes His hand of blessing from a people. Isaiah 5:7 ff. “The nation of Israel is the vineyard of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the people of Judah his pleasant garden. He expected a crop of justice but instead he found oppression. He expected to find righteousness but instead he heard cries of violence.” The result? “Many houses will stand deserted even beautiful mansions will be empty.” The reason for all the economic collapse in Isaiah’s day? 5:13, “So my people will go into exile far away BECAUSE they do not know me.”

“What sorrow for those who say the evil is good and the good is evil.”

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is on the throne and active and our country is reaping what we have sown.
