Woe To You That Are At Ease!

A lot of Americans sit back in nice homes, sipping on their Bud Light or their cocktails watching the big games on TV and think to their self:  “LIFE IS GREAT” and to world around them, for the most part, they could care less. It reminds me of the story in the Bible of the rich man that had so much stuff that he took down his barns and built bigger ones. He too thought that life was great. The real facts are this country continues to spiral forward, out of control, at an alarming rate.
 Most Americans are not listening to the sounds and they do they look and see what is coming from the world around them. If people would listen carefully they would recognize the sad and sorrowful sounds of America gasping and panting for its very last breath of life. America is changing at an alarming rate! Most Bible believing Christians can see this, but what about everyone else? For them life, is still great, it will still go on, but will it. Soon, if things do not change they will see their life come to an end as they now know it and then what will happen to those who are at ease in Zion? For over a year now these scriptures have often come to my mind:
Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. (Luke 6:25)
 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, (Habakkuk 3: 17-19)

A lot of what I’m talking about happened in the year 2008, the year that changed the country and the world Americans live in. It stained and contaminated the face of America, it altered and changed the direction of our moral values, it also changed how we are to view the future and how we see ourselves as human beings and it has changed the masterpiece (and that is what it is) and the framework of our most basic freedoms that some Americans have disrespectfully (just like a wore out shoe) tossed aside for the government handouts (freebies) and empty promises by the leaders who are in control of this country. Their bucket has got a big hole in it and they do not even know it.

The event I’m talking about, if you have not guessed, was the presidential election in 2008 of Barrack Hussein Obama. He was elected and put into office as the highest leader in our country, a man not even qualified to be a dog catcher, much less the most powerful man in the world. (Of course that is this writer’s opinion). People did not listen to what he was saying. We missed the first sign of, what should have been skepticism and a big warning sign when Obama promised to transform America. Americans fell into the sneaky catchphrase of "HOPE AND CHANGE." Americans liked his cheesecake smile, his skill to read from a teleprompter, his sneaky friendly manner and his fascinating and alluring pompous skills. Yep, the majority of Americans jumped in the cow pie with both feet thinking it was apple pie.  They all wanted that “pie in the sky” and instead of that they got this: “We load sixteen tons and what do we get, another day older and deeper in debt.”  Not only is it becoming harder everyday for most Americans to put gas in their automobiles and food on the table we are, and on a grand scale, fastly losing our rights as Americans as we have them in the constitution. Freedom is a valuable possession and we are about to lose it.
