Westminster Terror Attack (You Go British Prime Minister, Theresa May!)

Accolades to British Prime Minister Theresa May after the Westminster attack on March 22.  She is a class act with a firm resolute about how her country will respond to terror.

“We will move forward together. Never giving in to terror. And never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”

And isn’t that all terror can do anyway is to divide a country? Because to divide is to conquer, at least that is how they view it. But what could happen if the countries under attack from terror come together? Not only the leaders, but the people. We are the ones who have the eyes, and the ears on the streets of our countries. We are the ones who can prepare and be aware when faced with an attack, to counter and defeat this evil! There are around 184,000 terrorists world-wide, and we have 325,838,705 Americans, 64,938,716 French, and 65,511,098 Great Britain citizens.

(If you want to view population by country…http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/population-by-country/)

As Christians, God has given us some strong promises concerning our enemies.  We need to know them, to pray them, and to follow God’s will. Do you not think that by standing with God, any evil can be defeated? I do.

God tells us, “no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17

 

 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”               2 Timothy 1:7

If we read God words and believe God’s words, change will happen!

Another impressive statement by British Prime Minister Theresa May, which I feel is a truthful representation of the attack.

“The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorists chose to strike at the heart of our Capital City, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.   These streets of Westminster – home to the world’s oldest Parliament – are engrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe. And the values our Parliament represents – democracy, freedom, human rights, the rule of law – command the admiration and respect of free people everywhere.   That is why it is a target for those who reject those values.   But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before: any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.”

Democracy, freedom, human rights and the rule of law are the values which America was established.  We have come too far and fight hard every day to maintain theses values, to allow a spirit of terror defeat us!

Remember fighting terrorism is first being alert of your surroundings and reporting anything which looks out-of-place.  Even if it turns out to be a goose chase, because one of those times the person or situation might be the real deal.

God Bless You!

God Bless Great Britain!

God Bless America!

No Boots on the Ground!

I know everyone thinks President Obama has lost the war on terror. I was one of those people; and no I did not vote for him, nor do I care for his politics.  But his war on terror might be a different story, now that my eyes have been opened!

Boots on the ground would mean verifying Islam’s apocalyptic vision. And this is as much a psychological war as a physical one.

The terrorists want boots on the ground to fulfill the prophecy and begin the further downfall of the West and our allies. Thus, launching their apocalypse.

The prophecy states… The Mahdi will be sent and with the help of Isa (Jesus), will battle Masih ad-Dajjal (anti-christ). To them Isa can be a group of people like themselves, to rid the world of the Masih ad-Dajjal. We, America, and our allies are seen as the Masih ad-Dajjal or anti-christ.

The beheading of an American journalist in Dabiq was another part of that prophecy. The battle between the West(us) and them will take place in Dabiq.

To further fuel Americans and get us to put “boots on the ground” this is what the terrorists had to say…

The militant says the killing took place in the town of Dabiq, adding: “Here we are burying the first American crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive.”

I know this is hard for Americans. We offer tolerance and freedom to the world on our shores! Why would we be hated?

Power is behind the hate! Religion is the catalyst they utilize.  Because the country, who has domination over the most commodities of the world, and can use them as a control factor when dealing with other countries.

Power is a strange and intoxicating drug!

Another problem is America came into power and prestige by giving, instead of taking. And God blessed us.  A pretty envious  position, wouldn’t you say?

So, how can a country give, help, and want a better life for others? And still retain power and prestige? Because that is God’s way!

We must never forget God’s way and fall into the terrorist’s psychological traps. In the bible we are told, whether we agree with our government or not, we must follow our government.

I don’t agree with President Obama’s politics, but I do understand his war on terror. So, I will follow.

This does not mean I am giving up my 2nd amendment right and I will lie down to defeat! No, on the contrary.  I will use the intelligence and discernment which God has given me to be diligent every day.

And as a Christian American, I will step up my prayer life. I will pray without ceasing! And you should too. For in prayer we learn discernment and peace.

So, before you get upset over the media’s biased outbursts; GET THE FACTS!

Oh, I can hear you saying, “So, Joni do we sit back and be diligent to the terror in our own country and not have a plan of action concerning the terrorists overseas?”

I say this with great sadness, that in order to defeat the terrorist overseas, we may have to follow Senator Ted Cruz’s idea…

“In a Cruz administration, we would be using overwhelming air power and the Kurds as our boots on the ground, and it would be clear to any militant on the face of the earth, if you join and go ISIS, if you wage jihad against America, you’re signing your death warrant.”

Pray America! Pray!

As always…God Bless You and God Bless America!

The Time Has Come…

I want to start my blog by stating how sorry I am for those who lost their loved ones yesterday! My prayers for healing are with you and your families! May God hold you by His right hand and lead you through this time of sorrow!

cast

 

The terrorist events yesterday were like the final trumpet sounding in the heavens. We are at war on American soil! And it is time for Americans to realize this fact.

After watching the morning news today, I felt like our Government officials in Washington had a mouth full of marsh-mellows. Garbling out the same political rhetoric over and over again.  It is time for them to please shut their mouths!

We, Americans, are tired of their blame game. So put on your big boy or girl pants and let’s get to work…together! There is no longer room for political correctness when fighting terrorism. And we can not be a nation of Republicans, Democrats, and Liberals; but Americans working toward one goal.

I believe there are tangible steps we need to take in order to over come our nation’s problems. Here are my suggestions…

  • First, be diligent in all we do and report anything we believe to be suspicious.
  • Next, it is imperative we clean up our own cities, towns, and states by addressing poverty and crime with workable solutions.
  • Third, our media should quit acting like they are the all knowing, truth purveyors. Because they are not! Think of the good our media could do with a simple attitude adjustment.

We should also remember when America was founded, we were the people other countries did not want in their land. We were the throw aways, the runts of the litter! But we came together and created a free America where ideals could thrive and grow.

We, the people, made America great!

And we did not use an instant, miracle cure-all pill or a wave of the magic wand either. We worked hard and when times got tough in America…Americans got tougher!

Whether you believe or not; I believe God was the center, grounding pole of America. He must be the center again or we will fail!

As always, God Bless You!

Terrorism; There IS No Easy Solution But There is A Way!

When we look at terrorism and the repercussions which are being felt around the world, every one has an opinion as to what we need to do here in America.

Yes, terrorists are blood thirsty, no conscious, demented animals. We all agree on that point. And I believe we should readily arm ourselves when it comes to protecting our homes and family from terrorists and ordinary criminals.

But there is a fine line we must walk also, between helping the world and our own country, and becoming blood thirsty, no conscious, demented animals ourselves.

The first problem Americans are now fighting over is whether we will take into our country 10,000 Syrian refugees. Before the yelling starts, get the facts.  It is a two-year process before the actual “process” of allowing them into our country. With the way things work in our government give it another two years before a decision will even be made!

The second problem is that Americans see us as allowing the refugees in, means we will not take care of our homeless and veterans.

One Question: Are we even taking care of them now?

When was the last time you fed someone who was homeless, helped a vet, or worked a shelter in your area?

Before you start complaining, start doing first!

I believe the main agenda we should focus on is the recruitment of terrorist and sleeper cells right here in America. Waiting for their orders to begin their attacks!

And if you are so blind as to believe ISIS does not recruit in America, maybe you ought to read the book called The Blood of Lambs.  In it a former terrorist sent to America to recruit, found prime targets within North Carolina and South Carolina’s poor.

The very bible belt of Christians.

The South and the biggest place in America where our poor and our vets feel uncared for, by the Churches and Christian citizens.  They feel the snobbery of the church’s shut doors and the criticizing glares from the congregational cliques.

So where do they turn?

They turn to someone stating they are representing Allah. Allah who is feeding their family, paying their bills, and giving them a comfortable place to sleep. Slowly and systematically they are reeled into the darkest evil imaginable. American children and women are now bombs!  American men are now Isis’ fighters!

What? You are saying! Yes, when we turn our backs and a blind eye to the problems within America; terrorists turn it into opportunities for themselves.

So, how can we even undo the decades of damage already done?

(I sincerely hope I have scared you into action! And I don’t mean creating a personal arsenal.)

We have to start taking care of our own!

We have to start leaving our church doors open with warm welcoming committees ready to meet their needs!

Create your own organization! Sew blankets, take food, work the shelters, help with job employment and be diligent!

Be observant!

And report anything you think is out of the ordinary or looks suspicious!

Do not take things for granted!

AND PRAY! PRAY FOR WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT IN ALL SITUATIONS! PRAY FOR GUIDANCE ON HOW YOUR TALENTS CAN HELP!

PRAY FOR AMERICA!

STOP COMPLAINING, STOP POLITICAL POSTURING!

START DOING!

And that is my answer to fighting terrorism in America.

 

God Bless You!

We the people!

America, Closed for Repairs!

We can always look back, gather the facts and figure out how to prevent future terrorist’s actions.  But if you are like me sometimes I just scratch my head and wonder, “Where did we go wrong in this country?”

Do we share our freedoms and way of entrepreneurial lifestyle too willingly? Why do we think we must give our country away to every foreigner who comes along?  I know Christianity teaches us that we have to share the gospel to the world, but does that mean we fling open our country’s doors and let them do whatever they want to do?

I should say not!

We allow foreign students to come here for a better education.  And grant asylum to those who declare abuse from their own country.  Yet in doing so, we set our country up to be the target! The freedoms and lifestyle of America, they so vehemently abhor, are the very ones they utilize to their advantages.  Time to close New York harbor and put a new sign on Lady Liberty.  “America is Closed for Repairs!”

It starts with immigration control or maybe I should say clamp down on immigration.  We should not allow visas for students from foreign countries for the next five years.  Those who are here, on student visas, should be found and made to leave.  Sorry, but just like when a group of children are punished for being in the group who decided to behave badly, so should it be for the foreign students.  I think we will begin to see more standing up and pointing out those who are here to do harm, too.

As for those needing asylum, they too, should have no entry into this country for five years.  There are other countries who give out asylum.  Then we need to secure our borders.  The illegals from our Mexican border, need to be put into a work and pay taxes to stay program.  After eight years of solid citizenship, they can apply to become a citizen.

Once we have control, and new effective immigration laws in place, we might begin to open our borders.  Slowly, with control, and there can be no exceptions!

What about our home-grown little terrors?  I blame a lot of it on our breakdown of the family unit and the enormous amount of poverty. We could start in our churches, synagogues, and other places of worship to create community change. What can we, as faith-based individuals, do in our communities to make a difference? Start small, like a little pebble thrown into a pond and watch the ripples get bigger and bigger. I know you see the need and probably have some ideas of your own on how to address your community’s needs.  Just do it!

We should require accountability from our legislatures, government, and leaders for the laws they are putting into effect. Expect real change and not lining their pockets, kind of change, or no re-election.  Communities can come together and make tremendous differences, not just when a tragic event captures our attention. If we try.

What can you do? Share your ideas, start a program, provide for the needy, and have pride in America again!  Then maybe, one day, America will be re-opened for business.

A Call To All Americans

My fellow Americans, I know we are now under attack by various degrees of terrorism.  But like our past dictates, instead of tearing us apart, we become unified in our cause! And now is the time for unity.

In Isaiah 54:17 we are reminded, “No weapons formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgement, You shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. And their righteousness is from Me, says the Lord.”

Put down your busy lives and get before God. Pray! Pray for guidance and wisdom in how to handle these situations. ( If you are like me, then you are pretty angry) Pray for our country. Pray for those destroyed by these acts of terrorism! Pray.

Then it is time for us to unite and show the terrorists that they will never hold us down.  Instead of cowering in a corner, our backs get straighter and our actions become focused! WE ARE AMERICANS!

To the numerous heroes in Boston.  You are blessed, as-well-as a blessing to others!  You did what you knew you had to do and thought nothing of yourself.  Jesus tells us in John 15:13, ” There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

To the terrorist, “Did you see us in action?”  “We did not run away in cowardice but ran into the battle to defend and protect!” “What have you really accomplished?” NOTHING! Because we will rally around those who were hurt and devastated at their losses, and love them back into existence.  God will be there!

I found this video on YouTube and want to share it with you! God Bless You! God Bless America!

We Are at War!

Make no mistake America, we have been at war since 9/11! Whether it be homegrown or international, we are against evil day in and day out.   I am just like you, especially when I hear one of those who are dead is an eight year old child! P.O.ed! The hairs on the back of my “red neck” are standing on end and I want to fight!

These cowards would never stand face to face in a real fight.  Evil slinks and slimes its way throughout our streets and for what?  One of the most asinine reasons ever uttered.  If the bombs at the Boston Marathon, today, are from Al Qaeda, then they are uneducated, demented, heinous forms of  human beings. If it was from a homegrown idiot, that makes it worse.

First of all, you will never ever go to heaven and have all those virgins ready to pleasure your sexual desires.  That is a lie.  Mohammed actually had a Christian wife, whom he married in a Christian ceremony, and a Jewish wife too.  Can you imagine meeting Mohammed in heaven and having to explain why you waged war against his wife’s relatives? You are so screwed.

If you are the homegrown idiot, I would start praying for your soul.  Something is wrong with your mental and reasoning capabilities. What is wrong with you and what have these innocent people and children done to you?

As an American, what can you do? Be vigilant in your every day activities. If you know someone with mental issues, make sure the right people know about them.  If you see something suspicious report it.   Stand firm in your convictions! Americans have become so politically correct that we have lost our individual empowerment!

It is time to stand up for what you believe and I believe the break down of our family unit is what has put America in this downward spiral!

I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior !

I believe God can set this country right!

I am an American and won’t put up with terrorism.

I believe in America, Home of the Free and Brave!

What do you believe in?
