    John, looks like war may start in Syria as early as this weekend:
    Saudis forces mass on Jordanian, Iraqi borders. Turkey, Syria reinforce strength.
    Almost feels unavoidable, doesn’t it?

    God bless.

    Here’s an interesting post laying out the correlation between Israeli settlement evacuations and the CO fires:
    Twelve Days and the Expulsion
    What do you think?

    God bless.

    The Lord is my refuge and strength…Can I get a witness?

    Thanks for the info,Jay. You come up with some great articles and we all appreciate that. Dan…Amen!
    Woke up this morning to hear that Washington D.C. was hit with a powerful wind storm. Lots of damage and power outages. Unfortunately,2 deaths have been reported. Also,it occured to me that the nation is breaking heat records from 1930 and 1936,the time of the Depression and dustbowl. Records are also being broken from 2008 in my state. Isn’t that the year the stock market crashed? Just wondering if this is significant.

    On June 24th Dan made this statement regarding the celebration of July 4th:
    “…We need sackcloth and ashes…that would be more appropriate”.
    I don’t normally voice what I feel are more personal nudgings from the Lord on this comment section but in this case I feel I need to. Dan’s statement really grabbed me at the time I read it. It has stayed with me all week and has developed into a burden. I am beginning to believe that this simple statement is a call from the Lord to His Watchmen. A large majority of John’s readers are serious Watchmen and Prayer Warriors and this is a call that we can’t afford to ignore. I am sure there are others who are feeling the same and I wonder…is the Lord calling us to cry out to Him on the 4th? All I ask is that you seek the Lord on this matter and if you feel led,take the time on July 4th to pray for this Nation and it’s sins…it’s what a Watchman is called to do.

      Mary, I believe you are correct. I too have been burdened by “celebrating” the 4th this year. The Lord awoke me very early this a.m. prompting me to pray regarding this. My body did not want to get up to do so, but I did-the prompting was that strong. I think of Isaiah 5:18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
      I wonder what will it take to awaken the Church from the stupor it is in? The heathen can’t really be blamed for this rebellion directed at God-this lands squarely on the shoulders of the Church for compromising with evil on all fronts. I know that I’m preaching to the choir here, so I’ll just stop. Suffice to say that yes, we need to be in some serious prayer on this 4th while the rest of nation celebrates its rebellion.

    The KJV reads,to me,like a real love story…from God to us.The [other versions]…not so much.Thank you Lord..for preserving your precious,perfect Word.All we need to know is in there,nothing missing. God Bless you all…your brother in Jesus, Dan.w

    I believe that it is an excellent idea, Dan and Mary for all of us to spend some time in serious prayer and repentance for this country of ours. I really do not feel very celebratory, more like weeping. So looking forward to His coming.
