This is a great reminder to anyone reading it of what it took to put us Americans where we’ve been living for the last several decades since Pearl Harbor, in the best country on earth; but it came as always with a huge price! These days I know it’s safe to say that a large percentage of the American population perhaps even a majority now have no appreciation for these truths and many of them actually don’t care; that is a huge problem moving forward if this nation is to survive another several decades as a Free Nation with True Freedom for its citizens!
Back on December 8th 2019 I wrote this blog essay.
Putting Things in Their Proper Perspective
“THE BIBLE SAYS that the plan of salvation is so simple that even a child can understand it.”
Let me share a portion of that posting here with the link to further inspire others as I’m sure this fine blog posting is doing today as it does me! Because I deeply appreciate what all those past veterans did for us and our nation I really don’t think there could ever be enough said to even come close to showing the debt we in subsequent generation owe them! I only try to give my own deeply emotional perspective here as I have in the past and will always; as long as I’m alive on earth!
You know what’s wrong with so many ungrateful disrespectful, whining, antagonistic spoiled rotten Americans these days? They don’t know how to “put things into their proper perspective” having lived like spoiled rotten got it so damn easy selfish gimme, gimme takers with zero moral conscience, and now they set out to ruin the very land of milk and honey they are blessed to be a part of! Starting with our top government leaders many of which are doing all the wrong things for our nation under God which is the actual foundational heritage and history of how this nation was born and forged with blood, sweat, tears and great suffering to achieve all of the enormous blessings, prosperity and opportunity sitting on our laps here! These trouble makers today should be the ones living back during the time of WWII when push came to shove and 16 year old boys thinking they were men, and compared to many of the youth of today they absolutely were, fudged their birth documents and enlisted in the Armed Forces to go and fight unseen enemies for their country tens of thousands of miles from home sweet home like even some of my own relatives did! Then they saw hell on earth and fellow shipmates or others being killed before their eyes and being eaten alive by sharks in the Pacific Ocean as ships sank after being torpedoed in the ensuing battles after Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, all leading up to the War being the biggest armed conflict on earth in history! What 16 year olds today would be willing to do that or even have what it takes to leave home for God’s sake where they have the cushy life and are so overly pampered or being brainwashed by stupid pop culture and nefarious mind-sets meant to control them making minions of them for communistic control which here in America the Democrat Party have been exacting upon the people for decades now!
President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy.” On that day, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory. The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. Arizona and capsized the U.S.S. Oklahoma. The attack sank or beached a total of twelve ships and damaged nine others. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 150 others damaged. The attack took the country by surprise, especially the ill-prepared Pearl Harbor base; after which on the following day December 8, 1941 the President with the whole Nation behind him declared War on Japan.
In contrast to this today we have far leftist radical liberals declaring war on the Salvation Army, marriage between a man and a woman, protecting the unborn and even day of birth innocent babies, our Constitution, law enforcement, the military, Christianity, Judaism, Jesus Christ and even God as if they know better that there really isn’t any Creator and how they just appear to be hell-bent on attacking anything that is good or wholesome; could they be that devilish or obsessed and even possessed! These are the people that love ruin and suffering so wouldn’t it be nice if we could send them back to this period in our history and let them deal with that harsh reality of defending what is good and just!
The following is a bit more history on that horrible war before we get down to brass tacks of the mess people are making of things today!
“On 8 December 1941, after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States declared war on Japan and became an active participant in World War II. For some months prior to that attack, however, the United States had been supporting China’s war against Japan with money and materiel. Pearl Harbor formally brought America into World War II, but it was an earlier American commitment to China that drew the United States Army into the Burma Campaign of 1942.
Japan had invaded China in 1937, gradually isolating it from the rest of the world except for two tenuous supply lines: a narrow-gauge railway originating in Haiphong, French Indochina; and the Burma Road, an improved gravel highway linking Lashio in British Burma to Kunming in China. Along these routes traveled the materiel that made it possible for Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist Chinese government to resist the Japanese offensives into the interior.
In 1940 Japan took advantage of the German invasion of France to cut both supply lines to China. In June, with France focused on the war in Europe, Japanese warships moved into French Indochina and closed the railroad from Haiphong. A month later, threatening war if its demands were not met, Japan secured an agreement from the hard-pressed British government to close the Burma Road to war materiel temporarily.
The Burma Road reopened in October 1940, literally the sole lifeline to China. By late 1941 the United States was shipping lend-lease materiel by sea to the Burmese port of Rangoon, where it was transferred to railroad cars for the trip to Lashio in northern Burma and finally carried by truck over the 712-mile-long Burma Road to Kunming. Over this narrow highway, trucks carried munitions and materiel to supply the Chinese Army, whose continuing strength in turn forced the Japanese to keep considerable numbers of ground forces stationed in China. Consequently, Japanese strategists decided to cut the Burma lifeline, gain complete control of China, and free their forces for use elsewhere in the Pacific.”
To reiterate the severity and desperation this attack on Pearl Harbor wreaked upon our nation and indeed the world at the time here is an additional commentary about that event.
“The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor began just before 8 a.m. local time Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. For over an hour, in two waves, some 350 Japanese aircraft—having taken off from six aircraft carriers 230 miles north of Oahu—attacked the naval base. Japanese forces wreaked havoc on US naval vessels and on US aircraft on the island’s airfield. In all, 2,403 Americans, including 68 civilians, died in the attack. In comparison, Japan suffered relatively light causalities—it lost only 29 aircraft and a few mini-submarines.
The American people were shocked, bewildered, surprised, and angered by the attack. On December 8, President Roosevelt addressed a joint session of Congress in the Capitol, his words broadcast on radio to the nation: “Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”
There is a lot more to read in this long essay but here I insert this potion to bring it into s tighter perspective!
In other words you don’t see the forest for the trees and you think you offer some wisdom here when all you do is divert from the TRUTH which means you would be better to keep your trap shut and stay out of major world crises and stick to rolling another joint or picking your toenails, if this is going to be the extent of your offering to your fellow man! Read my other comments and consider that you have so much to learn in order to understand that God exists and there is a battle going on between “Good and Evil” and mankind is smack dab in the middle of that battle for a reason! Mankind is a minuscule agent in this existence and it’s not his plan but only the plan of the Most High and Holy One; God. In the meantime also consider where you would like your immortal soul to reside for eternity, which ultimately is something you are responsible for and only you will fail or succeed in making sure your soul will be in peace or anguish forever. Avoiding the truth that has been provided to mankind will be no excuse either because you have the basics you need to work with and can understand enough to decide for yourself.
“THE BIBLE SAYS that the plan of salvation is so simple that even a child can understand it.”
This is what I hope to convey to those multitudes I mentioned that don’t get it or don’t even care about the cost of Freedom and the total sacrifice made by some great men and women!
I close out with this excerpt which is from another posting I wrote December 7th 2019 that tied into the above posting perfectly and closed with these words.
“A Touch of Evil” that Will Not Dishearten God’s Elect!”
“through genuine humble faith on bent knee from the heart even if no larger than a mustard seed.”
Yes you and I know who I speak about and we witness this abomination by the Greatest Nation on earth, but we must all pray and look beyond all of this wickedness that is trying to overshadow our Great Nation under God and not allow us to clearly remember who this holiday is about; “the one true power, honor and glory which it is about, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” who will have the final say in everything in all of existence!
All I can say is, all of you faithful please keep praying to our Heavenly Father who is holding back from pouring out His wrath, but make no mistake about it the truth is upon us, we have enough proof my faithful friends; the winds of truth and justice are coming for them and all the other deceivers!
Stay in communion with the Holy Spirit by remaining faithfully vigilant in humble prayer and supplication for Him our Savior Jesus Christ, who loves us more than we can actually fully know and experience being outside of His glorious eternal kingdom; yet He made Himself one of us born of the virgin Mary His earthly mother, to prove without a doubt that we are here for one reason; which is that, through genuine humble faith on bent knee from the heart even if no larger than a mustard seed, that faith is the only other ingredient needed in our Father’s equation and plan for any of us to be united with Him in heaven for eternity.
And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20
So He was saying, “What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and THE BIRDS OF THE AIR NESTED IN ITS BRANCHES.” Luke 13:18-19
A Blessed and Merry Christmas to All of You!
Brother in Christ Jesus,
