    It Depends Upon What One Is Progressing For..

    Hello, and Good Morning Folks..

    The majority of us who are invested in the Iraqi dinar have lived to see the progression of the United States lead to a much more unstable society... The stability that once was is pointed out within the article I will be posting for you to read written by Peggy Noonan...

    As many of you who are reading this article have experienced over the last 5 decades, or less, a change has occurred in America that has been sold as progression... But is it?... Or has this progressive condition made many uncertain, and without hope in many respects?... Has the spirit that exists within all individual's been duped into believing that this progression will lead to a better society, or a utopia?

    During this progressive period since the 60's we have seen technology increase dramatically, and materialism become a source of fulfillment in order to fill an empty void that has been left because of a lessor reliance for some, or a re-creation of our Creator for others, that is quite contrary to what scripture describes HIM as...

    How about the roles of men, and women within our society?... Many have been conditioned to believe that if we as a society are going to progress, we must have a both sexes basically competing with one another as it concerns the job market, roles within a society, and more importantly within the family unit as God has deemed right, and good..

    In Isaiah chapter 3 verse 12 the Lord God Almighty addresses this problem with the children of Israel... But just because God is addressing the people of Israel on a personal level within this chapter, does not mean it does not apply to other nations as well... It is for all to be edified by who come to believe that the Word of God is the standard with which we should strive to live by... For the most part history has shown that mankind has failed in this, and thus we have had suffering, and death due to our living lives contrary to Creator's sovereign will...

    As Israel continued the escalation of sinful practices within their society at that point in time, we see a breakdown in the way things should have be in accordance to God's will... One sin will lead to another in time, and eventually we have that which Isaiah chapter 3 verse 12 describes...

    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.. O MY people!.. Those who lead you, cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths."

    This indeed describes America, and what we have as a whole progressed to... This country has been conditioned to believe thou that this is progress... But is it what God intended, and does doing that which is contrary to HIS will only weaken any nation that allows for it to transpire?...

    Going back to the Garden of Eden, did not Eve basically take the lead, and convince Adam to eat of the tree of good, and evil?... Did Adam forsake his role as the head of his marriage, and allow for Eve to take the lead?... And again, whose council was heeded at that point in time, and who declared rebelling against God's declaration of right, and wrong would lead to a more progressive state of being?...

    The lies we are convinced to embrace in such a crafty, and subtle way have always lead mankind down a primrose path of destruction... Satan, the father of lies, know how to appeal to humanities vanity, and our tendency to gravitate towards sin he has exposed time, and time again...

    But again this is a spiritual problem... God has allowed for those who HE created in HIS image to experience the pitfalls of making choices that ultimately lead to suffering, and death...

    Technology has changed, but the spiritual state of mankind as a whole has not... Going back to the Garden of Eden, when did Adam, and Eve sin against God?... It was when HE was not in their presence, or so they thought... For our Creator was testing them, and of course is omnipresent... He already knew they would fail simply because God knew their heart... He searches the hearts, and desires for us to do so as well within ourselves... So that we will use caution, as well as seek HIS HELP, and guidance through HIS SPIRIT, in order to ensure that we lead lives in accordance to HIS will...

    It can be done!... But will we do it as individual's who have been called according to God's purposes?... Being armed with God's Holy Spirit within our inmost being helps us to not be mislead... Does God force us to listen to HIM via HIS SPIRIT?... NO!... Simply because as physical adults, our Father in heaven wants us to desire to seek HIS will on our own... While relying upon HIM for council, and the strength we may need at times to overcome a desire that is not spiritually healthy, and lead to our sinning against HIM...

    So while we await this monetary change, let us continue to reflect on, and prepare for spiritually, that which will inevitably transpire... It will indeed be a test for all of us in some form or fashion... Remembering as well, that prophecy has to fulfilled, and as scripture points out, it will be the darkest before the dawn, and the return of the King of kings, and Lord of lords to rule upon HIS earth in righteousness...

    God is testing us, as well as giving us an opportunity to make progress in our calling because of HIM, to prepare for the evil HE will allow to permeate the nation's of this world simply because sin will define them as a whole... We of course cannot control what others do on a personal level... We can only warn them of the consequences of sinning against their Creator, and strive to lead lives that glorifies our Father in heaven...

    Peggy Noonan makes a point towards the end of her article that truly does sum up what will occur hear in this country if repentance is not sought through the Lord Jesus Christ... And ironically, it does describe what Isaiah chapter 3 verse 12 points out if humanity allows for sin to be embraced as good... Therefore leading to the forsaking of roles that we are meant to fulfill in accordance to our Creator's will in order to live lives that are best for society as a whole...

    Here is the link to that article... http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/05/opinio...ves/index.html

    God bless you, and remember that we should strive to make a difference within our sphere of influence... But even if other's do not want to adhere to the will of their Creator, we must remember that we are in good company... As there have been many in the past that have been surrounded by those who refused to heed the will of God... But with HIS SPIRIT in us, and our reliance upon HIM, will of course not lead us to be discouraged despite our physical surroundings... For the faithful in HIM know that our Lord's return is coming... And with HIM salvation comes...

    That is indeed our hope... And our hope is not in vain...

    God bless, and have a great weekend...

    Re: It Depends Upon What One Is Progressing For..

    Good Morning America, How Are Ya...

    Most of us reading this brief post are native born Americans in the flesh.. We have been blessed to be in a country where God has given so much to us from a physical standpoint, that we have really never been without as it pertains to sustaining our lives... Of course we know that many within other nations cannot make the same declaration, and have suffered in poverty that is well beyond what even our most impoverished have suffered here in the US... We have been a blessing to other nations as well as we have tried to help them out of their impoverished state in various ways... We have certainly been a giving nation as the hearts of many Americans have indeed shown compassion for the most part for the poor, and needy within our own country, and abroad...

    God does indeed love a cheerful giver, and we must remain in that frame of mind while understanding that it is not our righteousness that saves us from a spiritual standpoint... While we have been blessed, we have also taken for granted the freedom that God has given us, and now many more than should celebrate hedonism, or sin which leads to dysfunctional behavior being accepted as the norm, rather than the Truth about God, and the way with which HE wants us to conduct our lives... While searching for answers to the problems that beset our society, we continue to elude the obvious answer because it is not what we as a whole want to hear as the solution...

    Remember the old saying 'Money can't buy you love?" There is so much truth to that statement... Living our lives in accordance to what God's deems right in poverty is so much more spiritually fulfilling, and joyful, than leading a life of immoral behavior in a wealthy state... How much is enough, and will indeed money resolve the problems that beset our country from a moral standpoint?...

    When our Lord Jesus Christ came in the flesh, and declared HIS WORD (As HE is the WORD... Therefore knowing the will of God impeccably well) it was never done in a state of wealth... While HE could miraculously turn two fishes, and 5 loaves of bread into a meal for 5,000 people, this was not HIS primary focus... Nor should it be ours... We should also remember to bear in mind that those who were in Christ Jesus during the 1st century AD also sold excess lands, and shared this excess wealth with their fellow brethren...

    This wealth that we are soon to acquire, (And of course it will vary with all of us who have invested in the dinar) will not ultimately change the heart in our fellow human beings... Are we to help those in need that are struggling in the flesh?... Absolutely!... And especially showing favor towards our fellow brethren in Christ Jesus... For God's family is Spiritual in nature, and is indeed a perpetual one... WE are bound to our Father in heaven through our High Priest, and Fellow Spiritual Brother Jesus Christ...

    Let us also remember that there can be a spirit of contentment which could lead to a false sense of security as it pertains to our physical needs being met... Remember in Revelation chapter 3 verses 14-22 as our Savior addresses those who have fooled themselves into believing that their wealth was a barometer to their standing with God from a spiritual standpoint... But as Jesus points out to them is was quite the opposite, and those in this spiritual condition were lukewarm in their faith... This condition lead them to being "wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked."

    Our Chief Shepherd admonished those in this spiritual state to repent, and look upon themselves as God viewed them... Needing to be refined by the Holy Spirit so as to be a pleasing sacrifice to our Maker... Apparently, those in this spiritual state of mind allowed for the flesh to entice them to neglect their responsibilities, and fall away from the grace of God... Even the wisest of men, King Solomon being one of them, can be blinded by fame, wealth, and power... For with all that this king had going for him, and in all his wisdom, he did not have the love for God that would have not allowed Solomon to stumble... Again, money cannot buy one true love... For God is love, and that love HE provides us with through HIS SON is a priceless treasure... One that we should set our hearts on always, and forsake all if necessary to maintain within us...

    For GOD ALMIGHTY is indeed the GIFT WHO keeps on giving...

    Helping us all to keep it in perspective, and to be wise as serpents, yet gentle as doves... God bless, and take care...
