    As some of you may know I live in Michigan where the emrald ash borer is wiping out our white ash and black ash trees. Today I went for a walk with my wife and children to a 26-acre parcel of woods that is virgin hardwoods. My great grandparents saved this small section from the forest fires(not exactly sure when they went thru, the family arrived here in 1905). It was so sad to see these huge majestic trees dying. What caught my eye, though I wasn’t really surprised, was that the basswood trees big and small are dying, too. Their bark is fallling off and the leaves are changing to a yellowish grey. Michigan State University did a core sample to age one of the biggest hard maples in the “grove” in the early 90’s-I believe it was 320-years-old. I can see these giant maples being next. Why won’t people just read their bibles, like Leviticus 26 and understand that it doesn’t have to be this way-if only enough would repent, God would remove the pest, drought, etc. and heal our land.
    For watchmen like us, it is like watching a slow-motion train wreck. Today I was affected by what I saw in a very personal way. Most just chalk it up to another pest-but I know better.

      Keith,
      Great comment and so wonderful that you are teaching these things to your children. There are numerous scriptures that refer to nature and even the rocks responding to their Creator. They literally give praise to God. Whenever someone brings up global warming to me I immediately let them know it is man’s sin that is bring down this planet,not their use of carbon. The response I usually get is predictable.

    Obama and Clinton will reap what they sow by backing the Muslim Brotherhood. They will not lift a finger when Egypt and it’s allies go to war against Israel.

    @Keith O, Thank you for sharing about your day and what you saw in the woods.
    I agree, and also, whats so hard about saying “I am sorry” and repenting?
    I am thankful we have a God we CAN say “I am sorry” to, and HE FORGIVES US!
    It’s so easy and He would heal our land.
    He promised.
    God Bless us all,
    Joni

  4. In judgement, remember mercy. Without repentance, God cannot withold judgement, because He is just, and cannot deny Himself. In that famous passage in II Chronicles 7:14, quoting God Himself, “(IF) my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;(THEN) wilI here from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal theit land.” God has told us the conditions upon which He can withold judgement (fully deserved judgement). He wants to show mercy. It is His nature to show mercy, however HOLINESS is the primary nature nature of God. Mercifull? Yes. Mercy and judgement met at the cross. The cross was God’s JUSTICE being fully satisfied. And the condition upon which we receive His mercy is simply repentence

    Keith… yes, thanks for sharing what impacts Minnesota has had… even to the health of the land.

    Worth note, maybe…. but Rep. Keith Ellison (D) was the first Muslim-American elected to Congress to represent the people of Minnesota. He took an inaugural oath, swearing upon…. Koran.

    “Jefferson’s Koran”… he boasted, not truthful as to WHY Jefferson requisitioned a Koran. ALL was in context of dealing with Barbary pirates: fruits of Islamic subversion, plunder, extortion and deceit in his day “from the shores of Tripoli”… now in US Congress.

  6. The grace, the mercy, the forgiveness, the times of refreshing, the blessings, the healing, the peace, the prosperity, the joy, and the restoration of our broken fellowship with our heavenly Father, flow out of our heartfelt repentance and brokenness with contrition Psalm 51:16,17

    John – this just shocked me:

    “When I first read that genetically modified humans have already been born, I could hardly believe it. However, further research into this story featured in the UK’s Daily Mail1 proved it to be true. They’ve really done it… they’ve created humans that nature could never allow for, and it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen next. ”
