8-31-22, There was drought in the land of King Ahab as proclaimed by the prophet Elijah; God told him to flee. So he did and dwelled by a brook near Jordan where he was fed by ravens! And later God sent him to a widow who had very little food; but miraculously God send an unending supply of oil and flour and when her son became sick and died - by the power of God - he was brought back to life! 1 Kings 17:1-23

8-30-22, The Lord God told Solomon because of his idolatry and sinfulness his nation would be destroyed. And it was. After Solomon died the separation of the kingdom into two weak and hostile states is, in one aspect, a wretched story of folly and selfishness wrecking a nation while it's a solemn instance of divine retribution working its designs by men’s sins. Jeroboam, although no saint, did attempt to make peace with Solomon's son Rehoboam, but was greeted with great hostility and unacceptable terms. Jeroboam and his people of Judah fled and the peace enjoyed while Solomon was king was lost. 1 Kings 11:6, 11; 1 Kings 12:1-17
-- Matthew Henry, https://biblehub.com/commentaries/mhc/1_kings/11.htm
8-29-22, King Solomon proclaimed to the people Who God is and how they should behave. That both by our virtuous and holy lives that His grace inclines us; and by the eminent manifestations of His power and goodness in defending and delivering us from our enemies -- all nations may be convinced that our God is the living and true God and He alone shall we serve and obey. Thus Solomon’s prayers, like the prayers of his father King David are ended, Psalm 72:19-20, with this petition:
"Let the whole earth be filled with His glory."

Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
8-27-22, Although King Solomon had 700 wives and hundreds of concubines; God only gave him three children. One wicked son, Rehoboam and two daughters from Ammonite wife, Naamah who was the daughter of mother Zillah: Genesis 4:22; 1 Kings 14:21, 31; 2 Chronicles 12:13. There isn't any good said of Rehoboam; the worst crimes of the worst of the heathen in Jerusalem were committed by him. Sadly Solomon's only son was surrounded by wicked idolatry and even in his old age his father turned away from the one true God. He took foreign women who turned his heart. 1 Kings 11:6-10
We see that nothing can mend the hearts of fallen men, but the sanctifying grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. On this alone may we depend; for this let us daily pray, in behalf of ourselves and all around us. 1 Kings 14:21-31

What the Bible says about Solomon's Idolatry
God was not well pleased with Solomon as he was influenced by his many foreign wives and concubines, Solomon became enmeshed in pagan worship. Failing to heed God's warning of the "snare" which foreign wives would become (Exodus 34:11-16), he allowed his wives to turn him to false gods. I Kings 11:4 sums up the matter of his turpitude: Solomon's "heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David." 1 Kings 11:6-10

8-26-22, King David made his son Solomon king. After Solomon dispensed with God's enemies he declared that there would be 'peace from God forever.' The King had high hopes that because God was the Author of peace He would provide the perfection of it. Sadly, as recorded in Jeremiah 6:14, 8:11; Ezekiel 13:10, 16 in all four places it proclaims:
"Peace, peace; when there is no peace."

Yearning for America of Old
Today the US is no Longer a Nation
8-25-22, * -- I am a member of a fading generation of Americans who grew up in the 1940s and 1950s when the United States was a nation.
I was a member of a homogeneous population with a common language, Christian religion, common morality and shared values and outlook.
People in middle class neighborhoods didn’t bother to lock their doors and young children could safely walk a mile to school. There was conformity, but it was because we were in agreement. Life was good. Families were large and close. Neighborhood schools were run by teachers and parents (PTA). Discipline prevailed because of upbringing, not from abusive enforcement. There were no police in the schools. [And God's Ten Commandments were proudly displayed on the walls until 1980**]
Currently young Americans have no idea what's been stolen from them. They're being trained to be happy in a virtual world where they will enjoy artificial and meaningless freedoms that do not threaten the power that rules over them.
In 1964 a civil rights act was passed that had the good intention of providing enforcement to the 14th Amendment, and in 1965 an immigration “reform” bill was passed. The civil rights act had as its aim equal opportunity; but was turned on its head by the EEOC and a quota regime was installed. As it has developed the preference system increasingly discriminates against the original white ethnicities that still, although declining, form the backbone of the American population. Becoming legal discrimination against white Americans. 
The immigration bill opened the US to massive inflows of no longer enculturated persons. Assimilation was replaced with multiculturalism, and the nation was replaced with a Tower of Babel.
The consequence has been that today
the US is no longer a nation.
It is a geographical location that is a tower of babel in which rights depend on whether you are an “oppressed minority” or a “white oppressor.”
There are no common values, no common morality or social mores, no common religion or language. The immigrant-invaders look at the weak and unsure white population, made guilty by years of brainwashing and see that their time is coming.
In a half century the situation of the present-day original white ethnicity has gone from security to insecurity.
In the prevailing Identity Politics, institutionalized in the Democrat Party, media, universities and school systems, white Americans are officially oppressors. Their oppressed victims are “people of color,” homosexuals, transgendered, and feminists who insist that women are suppressed and abused by white male heterosexuals, this despite crime statistics that show that white women in relationships with black males constitute a remarkable percentage of murder and physical abuse victims.
In my lifetime I have witnessed and experienced the destruction of a great nation based in principles hard to live up to, and its replacement with a criminal organization devoid of all principle except power in which law is weaponized and serves to beat down challenges to illegitimate power.
I’ve watched a free country disintegrate into a police state that no aware person could possibly defend. Yet Washington has an army of FBI, CIA, NSA, and federal prosecutors whose job it is to persecute patriots and to cover up elections stolen by Democrats.
For decades Democrats have successfully stolen local and state elections. In 2020 the Democrats stole the Presidential Election, and they are at work blatantly - in front of our eyes - stealing the next national election by using the corrupt US Dept of Justice (sic) and FBI to frame Trump in order to prevent his reelection. There’s no other explanation for the aggressive FBI raid on Trump’s home to seize boxes of documents to which the FBI already had access except to create the public impression that Trump is a criminal. [..]
With each passing day it becomes more risky to expose the lies used to construct the false narratives that are used to control what Americans think and to erode our Constitutional protections against unaccountable and tyrannical government. My generation, or some of it, was instilled with a sense of duty to truth, to the Constitution and to our country. Today that sense of duty is essentially gone.
If a President’s own Justice Dept can come down on him like a ton of bricks while he is in office with such an obvious frame-up as “Russiagate,”  what can they do to the rest of us?

Joe Biden inches closer to nuclear deal with Iran
8-24-22, WashingtonTimes -- On 8/24/22 Ole Joe Biden's administration inched closer to restarting a controversial nuclear deal with Iran, brushing aside stark warnings from key American ally Israel and sidestepping mounting evidence that Tehran and its proxies have not moderated their behavior on other fronts and remain intent on targeting U.S. troops, officials, allies and interests. The U.S. & Iran are now wrangling over details of the current plan put forward by the EU to revive the 2015 Obama-era Joint Comprehensive Plan ...
Biden on verge of making worst deal ever with Iran
3-4-22, NYPost -- While Obama's 2015 Iran nuclear deal was bad; the coming deal is even worse. Ole Joe Biden's administration recently said it's close to announcing a Russian-brokered deal with Iran that will flood the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism with billions of dollars and leave Tehran on the nuclear weapons threshold. Obama's deal let Iran keep enriching uranium, developing nuclear-capable missiles and sponsoring terrorism in exchange for billions of dollars in US sanctions relief. More here from Hoover Inst
8-25-22, The devotion of this mother, Rizpah for her two dead sons, Armoni and Miphiboseth is heart wrenching. They were sacrificed along with five others to assuage the ill feelings of the tribe of Gibeon who was sorely abused by King Saul; and the Lord punished the Hebrews with a famine. King David agreed to sacrifice seven of Saul's offspring in an attempt to make amends with the Gibeonites. The seven were executed and hung with no speedy burial as is the tradition [Deuteronomy 21:23].
Therefore, Rizpah stood by the boys dead bodies chasing away scavenger birds for 5-6 months until David interceded and had them buried. [2 Samuel 21:8-10, 11-14]
This event wasn't punishing the children for the sins of their father, Saul - but to appease the persecuted.
Children are not punished for the sins of their parents; neither are parents punished for the sins of their children; each of us is responsible for our own sins.

The enforcement details were conducted in all of the state's 102 counties, ISP said in the release. Statewide, 1,027 people were placed into compliance with the FOID law.

According to projections from S&P Global Market Intelligence, CNN's profits are projected to fall below $1 billion FIRST TIME SINCE OBAMA WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE 2016.
According to a recent Gallup poll, trust in the media is at a record low, Only 11% of respondents had a "great deal or quite a lot" of confidence in the industry, which was a 5% drop from last year. Conservative critics have long accused the mainstream media of a liberal bias. They point to recent stories the mainstream media has pushed like the debunked Steele dossier and described the summer riots of 2020 that stemmed from Black Lives Matter protests as "mostly peaceful."
Wormwood & Gall
The Lord said, “Because they [Hebrews] have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice … Behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood and give them water of gall to drink.” 
8-24-22, * -- The grieving described in Jeremiah 9:13-15 could also reflect today's America. When the federal government uses policing powers for political purposes, no one in the land of Liberty is safe. And because of this nation’s spiritual condition, it’s akin to being fed a diet of wormwood and gall. 
It’s time for all Americans to get right with God. We’re living in a time where the evil usurpers of the laws of God are using accusations and sensation in the absence of any fact to undermine what is meant for right and good. The Constitution of the United States established on the premise of inalienable rights given by God the Creator. Rights are not granted by government; they’re embedded in the precepts of God Almighty and bestowed upon His creation. Governments are supposed to be a terror to evil as described in Romans 13:3. When governments are against God, we must respond as did Peter in Acts 5:29 by saying, “We must obey God rather than man.”
If we’re led by the Holy Spirit we will act according to our Godly gifts.
A nation can be changed; darkness can be eliminated by the Light = THE SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. 2 Corinthians 4:6 [..] Each of us must repent [Luke 13:3] turning to God and stand — oh yes, we must now stand otherwise suffer a steady diet of wormwood and gall!
 Wormwood is a bitter herb known for being an ingredient in absinthe [liqueur]. Its plant compound thujone can be toxic and even fatal in large amounts. Gall is a bitter-tasting substance made of a plant such as wormwood or myrrh.

Jeremiah 3:19-22, 25, 40, 59
My soul remembers my affliction and misery; the wormwood and gall - and has humbled in me. I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It’s of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him; to the soul that seek after Him. Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. O LORD, thou hast seen my wrong: judge Thou my cause.

West Russia Conflict? Religion!
The Reason for the Conflict Between the West & Russia is a Religious One:
Russia Has reverted to its Orthodox Christian Roots While the West is Pushing to Obliterate Christianity
8-23-22, * -- The war currently underway in Ukraine, which pits Ukraine as a proxy for the collective West against Russia, is primarily an ideological or religious one, with Russia representing what is left of Christian Europe, and “the West” representing a totalitarian ideology that abhors religion in general and Christianity in particular.
Given the fact that some Westerners – though fewer every day – still see “the West,” (basically Europe and North America) as Christian, and Russia as Communist, or crypto-Communist; this is no longer the case. The collective West is now a totalitarian and aggressively anti-religious power-block that seeks to export its anti-Christian and anti-human ideology onto the rest of the world.
Russia is loathed by the West’s ruling elite precisely because it has resisted this process and moreover has gone in the opposite direction: having once been an active proponent of “scientific materialism” and atheism, Russia has reverted to its Orthodox Christian roots and has rolled back the more pernicious policies and attitudes of the Soviet era. [..]
By 1991, when the Soviet Union was officially abolished, it was clear that the West had won the Cold War. Russia itself, under its new president Boris Yeltsin, openly proclaimed the end of all hostilities. Russia’s satellites in Eastern Europe were permitted to go their own way, and autonomous republics within the Soviet Union were allowed to declare themselves independent countries. [..]
There seems to be no logical explanation other than to assume an underlying cultural/religious antipathy towards Russia and her people on the part of a very large segment of the West’s ruling plutocracy. I suggest that this is the case, and it is Russia’s religion that is at the root of it.
By the end of Communism, the Orthodox Church was a small remnant of its former self under the Tsars, but that soon began to change. Hardship birthed a spiritual revival; by the mid-1990s the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as other branches of Christianity, began to experience noticeable growth. It was not however until the first decade of the twenty-first century, and the presidency of Vladimir Putin, that this movement became really significant.
Over the next five years, Putin showed that the ruling plutocrats were very much deceived had they imagined him to be under their control and part of their team. On the contrary, the new president set about breaking their power. The next decade witnessed a series of legal cases and trials which left some of the oligarchs in prison and others forced to pay substantial compensation. Others, arguably the most criminal, fled the country and their assets were confiscated. The breaking of the oligarchs’ power, together with that of the “Russian mafia” which enforced their corrupt rule, began to restore some form of normality.
In parellel with his economic reforms, Putin oversaw a revival of the Russian Orthodox faith… He established a bond with the monks that transformed their community and impacted the lives of ordinary Russians. A major program of church-construction commenced, and the numbers attending church began to grow. During this period, the portrayal of Russia in the Western media moved from one of condescension to outright hostility.
It was not until 2013 however that the anti-Russian rhetoric went hyperbolic. In that year, the Russian parliament passed its so-called “Gay Propaganada” law. The bill, described as “Protecting Children from Information harmful to their Health and Development,” explicitly banned Gay Pride parades, as well as other forms of LGBT material, such as books and pamphlets, which attempted to normalize homosexuality and to influence children in their attitudes to homosexuality.
Almost unanimously, Western media outlets now began to compare Putin with Adolf Hitler; he was a “thug,” a “fascist,” a “murderer.” Between bouts of seething rage, he became the butt of scathing satire. He was cast in the role of a caricature James Bond villain, routinely murdering and torturing those he held a grudge against. There is even evidence, admittedly somewhat circumstantial, that Western Intelligence bodies, such as the CIA and MI5, became actively involved in anti-Russian propaganda.
The effect of this deluge of demonization upon ordinary Westerners soon began to show: Whereas in 2006 only 1% of Americans listed Russia as “America’s worst enemy” by 2019 32% of Americans, including 44% of Democrat voters, shared this view. Only 28% of Republicans however agreed; a remarkable reversal of opinion. During the Cold War, Republican voters, traditionally the more religious and nationalistic element of the American political divide, viewed the Russians as the major threat; now it was the less or non-religious (and more pro-LGBT) Democrats who held this opinion.
But the Western elites did not confine its efforts to irate editorials in the London Times or the Washington Post: Economic sanctions now began to be discussed. There were immediate calls to boycott the Winter Olympics, held in February 2014 in Sochi, Russia. Whilst the call to boycott was generally resisted by athletes, many Western politicians refused to attend, and the Russophobic temperature in the Western media ratcheted up. And things were about to get much worse.
Regarding Ukraine: In 2010 Viktor Yanukovych, a native of Russian-speaking Donetsk, was elected President of Ukraine, defeating Prime Minister Yuliya Tymoshenko, in what was judged by international observers to be a free and fair election. In November 2013 Yanukovych delayed signing a pending European Union association agreement, on the grounds that his government wished to maintain economic ties with Russia, as well as with the European Union. Russia had in fact offered a more favorable loan bailout than the European Union was prepared to offer. This led to protests and the occupation of Kiev’s Independence Square, a series of events dubbed the “the Euromaidan” by those in favor of aligning Ukraine with the European Union. Whilst at times it looked as if the protests would fizzle out, there is no question that almost from the beginning there was a concerted effort on the part of Western politicians to keep them going. Beginning early in December, several politicians from Berlin and Brussels paid “morale-boosting” trips to the square, and these were followed, on December 15, by the arrival of American Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy. To the assembled crowds, McCain announced that “we are here to support your just cause.” The Russians, for their part, condemned America’s “crude meddling” in Ukraine’s affairs. [..]
Had the Minsk agreement been fully implemented, it is quite possible that all hostilities would have ended, but this was never the case. The new government in Kiev, which from May 2014 was headed by Petro Poroshenko, made no attempt whatsoever to abide by the Accord’s provisions. On the contrary, the Russian language, hitherto one of the official languages of Ukraine, was demoted, and Russian culture in general denigrated. Even worse, none of those who had committed murder in Odessa and elsewhere were brought to justice, and the Neo-Nazi militias responsible for these atrocities were actually integrated into the Ukrainian army. Worst of all, sporadic shelling of civilian targets in Lugansk and Donetsk continued – for the next six years.
