With what has happened in Washington this weekend, I am reminded of what God said through Jeremiah as the Babylonians approached the city. Unlike when the Assyrians assembled some 70 years before and NO ARROW flew over the walls, as the Babylonians approached, the word of the Lord was, "Prepare to be sieged."

Sincere individuals cannot excuse their actions based on merely their intentions. Our government is going to increase taxation so it can spend the people's money like whoremongers on a Saturday night.

History confirms that the policies we are enacting HAVE NEVER WORKED. Being sincerely wrong this time will mean the trivialization of America on the world stage.
As we get closer to the Lord's return, we may have to endure the siege from Babylon and to trust our Heavenly Father to supply our needs. "Big Brother" promises to care for us, but based on the provisions of the bill just passed, the government will not be able to help seniors. Our taxes are being squandered on politics not on providing for the people.
God help those in Congress who think they have done the right thing by obtaining political cover as way violate conscience and ignore the will of their constituents. Arrows coming over the wall will strike the common man, but the losses for the ruling class will be far more devastating.
