If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalms 11:3) Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. (Proverbs 14:34) Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. (Psalm 33:12-13)
IT WAS A WAKEUP CALL. We were a united nation for a few days. American flags were flying everywhere…for a few days. Americans talked about God…for a few days.
More people died in the 9/11 attacks than died in the attacks on our Navy Fleet docked in Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
THE DEAD IN THE TOWERS, THE PENTAGON AND FLIGHT 43 in Pennsylvania were 2,996 plus 6,000 injured. Afterwards, of the people who lived or worked in the area 1,140 died of lung cancer or lung problems. Of the emergency responders on that day, 1,400 died of lung cancer and other lung problems.
AND THEN SOMEONE IN OUR CONGRESS made a speech and quoted this Bible verse: The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. (Isaiah 9:10)
BUT, THE CONGRESSMAN THAT MADE THE SPEECH and quoted the verse from Isaiah, did not quote the verses just before that verse: The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, (Isaiah 9:8-9)
THE POINT ISAIAH WAS DRIVING HOME WAS THAT THE NORTHERN KINGDOM had been chastened by the Lord and the national leaders said in defiance that they would replace fallen bricks with hewn stones and replace sycamores with cedars. The brick was a make-do substitute for stone and did not last long. When exposed to weather it begins to deteriorate. Stone structures can last thousands of years. The sycamore tree was a common tree that grew on the lowlands of Judea. The cedar was a precious wood with attractive odor and long-lasting quality.
THE JEWS WERE SAYING IN DEFIANCE OF GOD'S CHASTISEMENT that they would repair what was destroyed with even better. I don’t know if our congressman bothered to look up the Bible passage to know what he was talking about. He surely didn’t. If he had read the other verses, then he was deliberately in defiance.
AN INTERESTING THING ABOUT THIS IS THAT WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS CAME DOWN, an historic church building was on the outer edge of the building collapse and was damaged. There was an old Sycamore tree near the church building and it was destroyed. During the repair work of the church building, a landscape company removed the remains of the old Sycamore tree and replaced it with a…Cedar tree. This is reported in The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn, a Jewish Christian preacher. The book is available at Amazon.
LIKE SOME OF YOU, AFTER I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL to turn on our TV, I sat there the rest of the day and watched. It is hard for me to look at the picture above because it is so deeply buried in my memory. It was raw and cutting; emotional devastation to watch. It is the same today as we review it.
TWO THINGS COME TO MIND AS I REMEMBER SEPTEMBER 11, 2001: It was, I believe, God’s wake up call to America that everything is not alright between God and America. We have become a very wicked nation. The second thing that comes to mind is that President George W. Bush made a terrible mistake when he told America that the attack on the Twin Towers was by a few radical Islamic zealots who had hijacked the peaceful Islamic religion.
THE HISTORIC RECORD OF ISLAM SHOWS THAT THOSE PEOPLE were playing it right out of their book, the Holy Koran and its supporting books. There are many peaceful Moslems, but they are not in harmony with their book. The system is against them and if they become vocal, they won’t live long. The open aim of Islam is world conquest. They are dead-serious about it.
GEORGE WASHINGTON AND OUR EARLY GOVERNMENT had to deal with them. Our Marine Hymn mentions it: “From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli.” There are some peace-loving Moslems, but that is totally irrelevant. They are not in charge of Islam. There were peace-loving people in NAZI Germany, but it didn’t matter. They were not in charge of the war machine or the slaughter of six million Jews.
THE NATIONS THAT OPEN THEIR BORDERS TO ISLAM become the captives of Islam. It is powerful, and it is as much a threat to the United States as Communism ever was. We need to know the facts. The media and our educational systems are not giving us the facts.
I HAVE READ AT LEAST A DOZEN BOOKS BY VARIOUS AUTHORS to learn the truth about Islam. The most comprehensive book is: The History of JIHAD from Muhammad to Isis by Robert Spencer (Amazon Books). Don Boys, Ph.D., has written a good book on Islam and has a free informative website at: http://www.muslimfact.com/ Become informed and understand why it is imperative that we seal our borders and control our immigration system.
