Notes From The Underground of "America"
Today I met with a lady from the Philippines. She is 75 years old. She has been here 30 years. She has a Bachelors in Education, an She came with her sons when they were between 10-15 years of age.
She has a Bachelors in Education, and she has taught English, and run businesses during her life here.
Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth's vine, because its grapes are ripe." The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.
Instead, the American people have called out heartily, "Thank you, sir. May I have another."
These people are not the people I recognize as my fellows.
I have a friend who was born in America and has spent most of his life traveling. He says he sees a phenomenon, all over the world, of people who he calls, "Americans of the mind." In other words, these people long for Liberty and are willing to fight for their God-given right to enjoy it, even as they live under a government who would enslave them in various ways.
Now, I believe, we are those people. We are a people standing within the ruins of our once proud nation's borders, and our country is not our country anymore. We may be Americans, but there is no long a "America" for us to call our home.
We are exiles, like the Jews have been.
I guess it is not surprising. It seems the Bible tells us this will happen to God's people. And, if I am to believe that those who follow the Bible are "grafted onto" the Olive Tree, well, then it is not surprising that we will also suffer some of the curses of the Jewish people.
Judeo-Christianity, and it's development into a form of government, under which people could live in Freedom, has been a long and noble project.
But, it has come to an end.
That's my opinion, on November 7, 2012.
