"For a small amount of perspective at this moment, imagine you were born in 1900. When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years.

The Rare Commodity of Truth

Facebook Post by John R. Enlow, from Restore 7, On Earth as it is in Heaven

The world war we are presently in is an unconventional war. The enemy's "atomic arsenal" in this war is disinformation. The front line strategy involves manipulating a narrative and sparing no expense to do so. The war plays out as an information war because that is where the enemy has invested the bulk of its' resources. By the very nature of the unconventional war strategy TRUTH has become the rarest commodity. Rarer seemingly than diamonds. The enemy has spent years and even decades securing "mainstream media" for this world war. It valued stockpiling news sources and media outlets as much as nations in times past would normally value and stockpile nuclear weaponry. George Soros is a key figure if not THE key figure on the dark side. He has a stated goal of destroying America. It is his money financing ANTIFA. Every one of his companies and organizations are part of a disinformation campaign. Many are made to APPEAR like something that they are actually the opposite of.

Comparing Current Rioting to the Boston Tea Party?

Sharing a post by David Meek:

My feed has been so full of people comparing the current rioting to the Boston Tea Party as a justification I thought I should set the record straight as a history teacher.

Modern day rioting and looting for personal gain is NOTHING like the Boston Tea Party.

During the tea party, great care was taken by the Sons of Liberty to target the tea of the East India Company, whom they viewed as an unethical monopoly that threatened local businesses, and avoid any damage to other private property. The only person who tried to steal some of the tea for personal use was beaten and thrown overboard. After the tea was disposed of, the group swept the decks of the ship and gave it a proper cleaning so that the ship's captain could not claim that anything except the cargo had been touched. Then they financially replaced the only piece of private property that had been damaged - the captain's padlock that locked the hold where the tea was stored.

Father and Founder of the Republic

AMONG the multitude who in different lands and times have won fame in varying degrees, a few stand out so distinct, so far above the rest, that they mark the eras of the world's progress. By them we measure our growth; by them we test our advance or decline. We no longer judge them, but rather judge ourselves by them, by the extent to which we can appreciate and understand them. An age in which they are honored is glorious; a generation by which they are not esteemed is contemptible. Among the few thus truly great is WASHINGTON. A thousand times has the story of his noble life been told; yet never were men so eager to hear it as now. His character has endured every test; his fame is secure. "It will be the duty of the historian in all ages," says Lord Brougham, "to omit no occasion of commemorating this illustrious man; . . . and until time shall be no more will a test of the progress which our race has made in wisdom and virtue be derived from the veneration paid to the immortal name of Washington."

40th President of the United States: 1981 - 1989

January 11, 1989

My fellow Americans:

This is the 34th time I'll speak to you from the Oval Office and the last. We've been together 8 years now, and soon it'll be time for me to go. But before I do, I wanted to share some thoughts, some of which I've been saving for a long time.

It's been the honor of my life to be your President. So many of you have written the past few weeks to say thanks, but I could say as much to you. Nancy and I are grateful for the opportunity you gave us to serve.

34th President of the United States: 1953 - 1961

January 17, 1961

My fellow Americans:

Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor.

This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen.

Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all.

Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation.

33rd President of the United States: 1945 - 1953

January 15, 1953

My fellow Americans:

I am happy to have this opportunity to talk to you once more before I leave the White House.

Next Tuesday, General Eisenhower will be inaugurated as President of the United States. A short time after the new President takes his oath of office, I will be on the train going back home to Independence, Missouri. I will once again be a plain, private citizen of this great Republic.

That is as it should be. Inauguration Day will be a great demonstration of our democratic process. I am glad to be a part of it-glad to wish General Eisenhower all possible success, as he begins his term--glad the whole world will have a chance to see how simply and how peacefully our American system transfers the vast power of the Presidency from my hands to his. It is a good object lesson in democracy. I am very proud of it. And I know you are, too.

1st President of the United States: 1789 - 1797

September 19, 1796

Friends and Fellow Citizens:

The period for a new election of a citizen to administer the Executive Government of the United States being not far distant, and the time actually arrived when your thoughts must be employed in designating the person who is to be clothed with that important trust, it appears to me proper, especially as it may conduce to a more distinct expression of the public voice, that I should now apprise you of the resolution I have formed to decline being considered among the number of those out of whom a choice is to be made.

The Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny!

I want to share what the Lord has shown me concerning the "Disease That Will Destroy Your Destiny." That fatal disease is known as "Procrastination." I'll never forget the words of Mike Murdock, who said, "you'll never advance in the kingdom of God beyond your last act of disobedience." Procrastination is a form of disobedience and defines the difference between forgetful "hearers" and "doers" of the Word of God. This very blog post represents a milestone in my life, because I'm a professional procrastinator. Being a procrastinator allows the enemy of our souls, the "Terminator," to destroy or severely blunt our destiny. Our level of success, is directly related to the level of procrastination in our lives.

Love Never Fails

The Lord continues to amaze us as we recognize His hand in daily events in our lives and those around us. "Every time we pray, something happens." These are the words of Jim Moore, the director of the Salem House of Prayer. As we begin to approach our prayer life from this perspective, we'll attach more significant value to our times of prayer. We understand our God as the faithful Father, so we know time spent in His presence is never wasted. If we realized every time we pray, something happens, what would that do to our level of expectation.

Most of us have heard the famous question, "What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?" How about this? What would we pray for, if we knew it would be answered? Or this? What would we believe for, if we knew God would do whatever we asked? And finally this? How earnestly and diligently would we pray, if we knew our answer was on the way? This is exactly what prayer is all about. Our Father delights in doing wonderful things for His kids, just like any earthly father would.
